I've completed a bit more of the storyboarding. These are the 3rd and 4th Pages. I've added in a bit of a joke (an attempt..) The suitcase becomes tired and slows down to a stop after running. It then, while tired, glances to the left where a sign reads 'No Unattended Baggage' the suitcase looks surprised and begins running again. (I wasn't sure how well the boards out this across)
I keep getting worried about the technical side of the project, which is why now and again I stick a few hours into Maya between storyboarding. I've made a start on the train. I don't want to get too bogged down in the technical details, I want it to have a cartoon-ish style, like my environment. I'm UV Mapping it as I go along and the texturing should be simple as it will be grayscale. I'm using loads of different images as reference, picking out bits I like on different steam trains from the period, so it is not an exact model.
Bit of Progress with the Train, starting to texture it (Just the main body and front so far) I reckon rigging the steam wheels will be a bit of a challenge, but i've looked at a few videos and I think eventually I can work out how it moves. I've then got to stick on a cabin and model the passenger carts.
Another quick update with the train:
