Steve goes boating by LockRikard Steve goes boating by LockRikard
And he brings his pets along for the journey! :dummy:
It doesn't go quite as planned...


Omg, a comic! This took quite some time, it's like 14 mini-artworks all at once I think I've fainted. 
A lot of the modeling time was spent to make the ripples in the water, and SketchUp's not the best suited program for that...
Sorry if the panel layout is wonky, I just made it up as I went along :L


HD rendered panels:
Boating at night by LockRikard Sunset Fishing by LockRikard 

Some textures from Minecraft - trademark of Mojang AB
Programs used: JMC2OBJ for terrain porting, SketchUp for modeling, Kerkythea for rendering and Paint.NET for image and texture editing.
Render times: lol nope
Modeling time: too long

I'm trying to figure out what happened, was it the dragon's fault?  With that roof this really was the perfect boat. . .  What a shame.  I'm thinking of making this it's so beautiful!

The boat was probably sabotaged by the guy he bought it from XD

I like how the guy who sold them the boat is overjoyed when he got the diamonds and is waving them when they set off. This is just beautiful.

You couldn't be more wrong :XD:
All I have are a couple of old laptops, and I have to leave them on during the night for them to render stuff!
It took between 9 to 15 hours to render each frame =P

It's really inspiring to see how much you care for your creations. :) How much or what you would go through to make it happen. ^w^ Awesomesauce. :3 Have you thought about doing 3-D Minecraft animations? :D Or do you already do that? XD Because I bet you would be phenomenal.

I do make teeny tiny animations in Blender, but I haven't tried making any full scale animations, both because lack of skill and ideas for an animation (there's little point in animating just for the sake of animating). I would have to get the right software and knowledge to add sounds to the animation, and so far I haven't bothered to try =P

The guy who sold him the crap boat to Steve better give him a refund, if he doesn't want to end up dragon food.

Why you don't Make an animation ? is awesome

:iconlockrikard:
LockRikard Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Because the software I use are in no way capable of making proper animations. And I also prefer still pictures and comics rather than rushing to make keyframes and render hundreds of frames and have to add decent sounds and voicing. It's simpler and easier with still pictures, and I get more done this way :)

All around, pretty great.
I wonder if you would have any use of shapekeys.

I highly doubt it, SketchUp doesn't even have shapekeys.
