Personal Projects

Welcome to the Personal Projects section! In this section you will find a list of the personal works I have done up till now, or the projects I have in mind for future development.

If you wish to see more things about my projects, you can also visit the Comic and Animation section of my web www.martull.com.

Journal Papers and Publications

In the following posts you can see a list of the Journal papers and Posters I have published as author and coauthor in reference to my work at CVLAB - University of Tsukuba, and the New Tsukuba Stereo Dataset.

About the New Tsukuba Stereo Dataset

The New Tsukuba Stereo Dataset is a one minute computer generated animation I made at the CVLAB of the University of Tsukuba. This animation's function is to work as a stereo vision dataset for testing algorithms of computer vision, stereo matching, camera track, etc...

At the CVLAB's website there is a full section with more information about the dataset and its characteristics. Click here to see the dataset's web, or check out the posts in this section.

This dataset is free to download and use. To download the dataset, click on the following link:

About Outdoor Stereo Dataset

From April to August of 2013 I am going to be working on a Outdoor Stereo Dataset similar to the "New Tsukuba Stereo Dataset", but instead of an indoor animation, it will be all outdoors, with different weather conditions and various moving objects such as pedestrians, cars, buses or bicycles.

This work is still in process. I will update this section soon with images of the dataset and the final animation. See you then!

Baby Hell

In 2008 I wrote the story of Baby Hell, intended to be an animation film.

But because making an animation of this characteristics takes an enormous amount of time and technique -witch nowadays I still lack- in 2010 I made an adaptation of the story in order to be published as a comic book.

The comic would be divided in a total of 13 episodes; 12 for the main story, plus one bonus story; and it is planed to have 184 pages.

It will also be done entirely in 3D and colored by cell shading techniques.

The reason why I'm planing to do it this way is because once completed the comic I would like to use it as story board and make an animated version in a not too distant future.

There is no official release date, as I will have to do many projects simultaneously with my work.

All I can say for now is that I would like to see it done by 2015. Until then, I will continue updating with new contents in future posts! :)

Seven Goddesses

I started writing stories just for fun in 2005. It was a great way of exploiting my imagination, and keeping myself busy during the high school years.

Seven Goddesses is the first story I wrote at that time, and even though at the beginning it was a very childish and simple story, I continued revisiting the scrip for many years to come, until I came up with a good idea to start working on. Writing the story of the Seven Goddesses I found my true vocation in illustration and story writing, and therefore it has become one of my primary targets and sources of inspiration.

There will still pass a lot of time until I can finally finish this huge project and see it published, but I'm going to keep working on it and hopefully eventually I will be able to to see my childhood dream come true :)

Nowadays, the story is still in working progress and it will remain this way for a while, since there are other more urgent projects that have to be finished before I can jump into it full time.

But every now and then when I have free time, I like making illustrations and renders of the characters and the scenarios, and I upload them here to keep a track of the progress and to make myself some new goals into seeing it finished some day!

Until that day comes, I hope you will enjoy the works shown in this section!

PRMU 2012 - Sendai

Some CVLab memebrs and I went to PRMU 2012 in Sendai to present the New Tsukuba Stereo Dataset among other researches. We participated with our Dataset in the Poster category. 

Here you can see the poster of our Dataset I designed, explaining the advantages and features of our project. For the design I used the logo I made for the CVLab, and the corporate type and colors.


Before the poster session, we had to make a one-minute presentation. In this video you can see our presentation, in which we played the Promotional Video I showed you in the previous post:



The workshop was so much fun! 

We had a wonderfull time in Sendai, the city was beautifull and it snowed. We were also able to taste Sendai's food specialty: Gyūtan (牛タン) that is mainly cow tongue!

It was delicious! :D
