This week I have continued working on the shoggoth and the book, and have also worked on some other props. I wasn’t able to make as much progress as I would have liked, but I did get some work done.
Summary: Continued working on the shoggoth. I focused on the end of the tentacles, and now that the group has decided which one they want, I’m going to lay out the body using the eyes and mouths as centerpoints and bridging between them.
Pros: The arm variations are now set, and there are several tentacle base variations as well.
Cons: The group seems split on the best way to proceed with the shoggoth, so progress is being slowed because we don’t want to have to backtrack again.
Time: 3 hours
Summary: The journal now has a fully functional rig of 10 pages. The pages can be curled from the top and the bottom, and they flip and stack neatly.
Pro: The pages are two sided, and the rig is finished and organized.
Con: The binding needs to be made and designed to work with the rig
Summary: Lake’s backpack is found lying on the ground emptied out. This gives the protagonists a clue as to the location of their friend. I needed to make the backpack period accurate, which took a while to get the reference.
Pros: The backpack is mostly finished, with details like straps and clips modeled on.
Cons: The terrain the backpack is sitting on might change, which might change the shape of the cloth
1. Finish Lake’s journal with cover and UVs
2. Assemble base mesh of the shoggoth
3. Keep making props
