Preparations

Stephen noble 3dblockouts

3D Block outs using MODO and DAZ Studio: This process helps me develop a more realistic perspective and lighting. I might work over top of these Renders or just refer to them as I work. This stage can be very helpful.

Stephen noble thumbnailsv2

Thumbnail Studies: I started by writing down a quick plot summary Then I started sketching out different beats in the story using thumbnail sketches. Im not much of a writer so for me pictures do a far better job.

Stephen noble filmstudies

Film Studies: At the beginning of the challenge I flipped through several films in the genre to find interesting shots. From there I gathered up a deck of photos then made these studies directly or in some cases modified into a new shot all together.

This is my submission for the Art station Wild West Challenge. I intended to finish the challenge but got bogged down with freelance work. In the end I scrambled and got the work done in time but was not longer able to re submit after dropping out of the challenge. To bad but Im happy I stuck to the original deadline and didn't put this on the back shelf. I was going for a more action adventure themed story. Had allot of fun coming up with ideas and rendering the final Keyframes.
