A few words about: Mary and Max (2009 Movie)

Sometimes after i watch an Animation movie for the first time i feel happy, some other times i feel excited. Tonight it was the first time i felt thrilled, depressed and satisfied at the same time.
It all began when i got a mail from a friend about a movie called "Mary and Max" that won awards at Annecy International Animated Film Festival and Berlin International Film Festival. After I've seen it tonight i strongly advise you to spare some free time for it.

Watch the Trailer!

"A tale of friendship between two unlikely pen pals: Mary, a lonely, eight-year-old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne, and Max, a forty-four-year old, severely obese man living in New York"

Plot translate in Greek:
"Η ιστορία μιας φιλίας δι`αλληλογραφίας μεταξύ δύο εντελώς διαφορετικών ανθρώπων, της 8χρονης μοναχικής Mary Dinkle που ζει στη Μελβούρνη και του 44χρονου Max Horovitz, ενός Εβραίου που πάσχει από το σύνδρομο Asperger (μιας ήπιας παραλλαγής αυτισμού) και ζει στη Νέα Υόρκη"

Project: Coffe table

Last night I started a project from tutsplus in Maya and now after I am done modeling I've got my first image results. From now on I am going to change a little bit the lighting, the texturing and rendering.



i) Reposition my camera
ii) Setting off Global illumination (mostly for rendering speed)
iii) Change some of my attribute editor's settings for the lights and the carpet

i) (Maybe) Sofa's color
ii) Camera settings
iii) Lighting settings
iv) Little bit of photoshop :P
