Hello I’m back!

I’m writing down a checklist of the workflow I did for my animation in C4D:

✓ Model Koi Fish ✓ Animate Koi Fish ✓ Simulate fluid from Realflow (sea of milk) ✓ Collide tags for fish to react with water ✓ Add noise in the water to create a more dynamic flow ✓ Add blue trails on fishes using Turbulence FD ☐ Animate more fishes Read more →

@ Wonder Wall

Storyboard and colour scheme:

We plan to have 3 clips to our entire video, each running about 30-40 seconds long.

First panel: Our first clip shows the dragon’s exterior. Its body is rocky, mimicking the trails of the silk road that traders had to cross to reach foreign lands to trade. The body wraps the top and bottom of the frame and Read more →

So I’m back again with some new renders after listening to the feedback about my work. I’ve added blue fish trails using Turbulence FD in Cinema 4D which I feel gives a certain touch of elegance and augments the flow for my piece. I am very happy with this result! 

This is a draft render as I Read more →

Our concept is greatly influenced by the kind of terrain that was on the Silk Road. The main terrains includes desert, mountainous region and ocean.

Choice of Colour 

We chose to work with black, gold and silver to match with our Silk Road theme and the architecture of Elphi. The tones that we are working on as more muted, which are generally calming Read more →

Dear Jia Ying, please consult with your team- if they can identify what each of you contributed to the project - as i need to start grading on the process.   You can upload me in person! on Tuesday However before the class ends ( week 14) i need to see each member contribution. The upload can be done separately or by one member - but it needs to identify contributions.

@ when in doubt, freak them out

working title: ART OF TRAVERSE / inkverse /

This piece elaborates on travelling along the Silk Road and the amazing scenery there is to offer. It will show the China to Middle East side of Silk Road through landscape sceneries. Wanting to use a technique that is unique to China, I chose to illustrate the sceneries with ink and wash painting, which Read more →


Blue Waves - Style 1

@ Amadea Low

This post will be sharing my ideas and stills for my first idea. This came about because of the prominent blues that occur throughout the silk road and is a symbol for many different things ranging from it being Timurid’s favourite colour to a symbol representing death.

It also represents water and thus I want to link it to abstract ways Read more →

@ huibuhui


The Silk Road, as its name suggests, was a major set of trade routes revolving around the commerce of silk. It stretches from Europe all the way to Asia, bridging the East and West for the very first time.

While the decomposition was a reminder that such luster were not meant for commoners. The fabric selected were thus, chosen from cultures Read more →

Make sure to include in your POST here names and sources of fabrics. Since this is public platform we need to cite the source :) I have received your files with thanks for testing on media wall today ( Tue 8th) Kind regards Ina
