I've used Prince of Persia as an influence for my secret lair because I feel that the theme that runs throughout it matches well with what I envision my final render to look like. The use of dirt and sand in a very subtle way works well and I intend to use this technique for my own work.

In the last lesson we had with Meg we were asked to animate bouncing balls whilst taking in to consideration their physics, meaning that the difference in the weight of the two balls would mean they bounce differently. Both animations together took over 40 frames to come up with these finished videos.

Mansoor Ziyad was the descendant of a Lebanese warlord who with his tribe seeked asylum in the Sahara desert from more powerful rivals in a war thousands of years ago. After many years, his tribe of less than 400 people grew into an empire in which Mansoor became the emperor of.
However, unlike his forefathers, Mansoor lacked the ‘warrior heart’ trait that ran in Ziyad blood and instead was notorious for being immensely vain and self indulged, seen mostly followed earnestly by his levitating mirror xzaina which was given to him by the family witch doctor as a child. Although still a great leader, the elders of the empire were against this over-emphasized fascination with himself and his many mirrors in his palace because they felt in the long run it would affect the way he treats his people, So they all voted to have all his mirrors confiscated including xzaina. Dakura the witch doctor foresaw these events and warned Mansoor what would happen to his possessions so he moved them to a secret room in his palace.
Only Mansoor and Dakura have access to this room which is filled with his most treasured possessions and some of Dakuras most sacred ornaments and figures of worship.
