Summer Project

Project Brief 

In the BA Hon CG Arts and Animation course at University of Creative Arts Rochester, the client has given me a summer project which is to produce 101 concepts drawings using the objects (image below). this image shows that I have to draw concepts of Structures, Life forms and Machines.


  1. Hey George!

    Your first post - congratulations! Your mentor - Steve Payne - will be making contacting on here soon. Steve is there to ease you into this new creative life of yours! Meanwhile, if you haven't done so already, you should go and introduce yourself to your classmates - and take a look at how they're approaching the summer project, for ideas and further inspiration - and some top tips - for instance, always numbering your thumbnails so people can direct their feedback more easily etc - and you'll see too how students are already thinking about presenting their work professionally - with a bit of branding and graphic design for their design sheets etc.

    Check out these posts and I very much look forward to seeing how your summer project develops from here on in! :D

  2. Welcome George,
    I'm Nat, a second year, you're in safe hands with Steve.
    If you get stuck with anything let somebody know and you'll find the answers you're looking for pretty fast.
    Congratulations on your first post, keep them coming :)

  3. Hi George! Welcome to Casa del CGAA!
    I'm Meg, a 1.5 year (started first year last year, couldn't finish so I'm back this year to finish things up), I'll be around and about to show you newbies the ropes. Looking forward to seeing your summer project work, like Nat says, keep those posts coming C=

  4. Hey George, welcome to our funky CG Arts and Animation community!
    I'm Steven, and I look forward to being your mentor!

    I'm here to help, so if you are ever in any doubt, don't hesitate to come to me, whatever the problem.
    Whether it be developing ideas, technical challenges in Maya or you simply want a chat, work or otherwise, get in touch and I'll do my best to point you in the right direction!

    You can contact me either through my blog (, directly through email ( or in person (I'm typically around the baseroom most days of the week).

    Now for the fussy, lecture-y stuff!

    Before you get into the swing of blogging, it'd be a good idea to turn up the professionalism of your blog, i.e. develop a house style that will translate the quality of your work in a way that is clean, professional and reflects your personality. This includes formatting any text and images in your posts, making sure that they aren't simply scattered about all over the place. Once you get this out of the way, you'll be able to quickly put stuff up on your blog, safe in the knowledge that it will always look professional (regardless of whether it has been uploaded at 2:00am, the morning of a crit!). Approach the presentation of your work in the same careful manner that you would the work itself.

    The lecture-y stuff is over now (for the time being! ha!)

    I look forward to seeing the evolution of your Summer Project over the coming weeks, and I will properly introduce myself in person when we finally get to meet the new gang at the end of the month!

    Good luck, and keep those posts coming!
