Ego Tumbling Humbling

making a resume is the most humbling experience I've had since High School baseball when i didn't even try out for the team..

In Thesis news ive finally come to the realization that i wont be using displacement maps for anything in my thesis. Oi wasted a lot of time playing with them for the ground but bumps along with textures work just fine and are much more manageable. so if all's good i should be posting something juicy stay

He can EAT!!

This occlusion pass is dedicated to a man that loves all things occlusion the same man that has given Kurrent the ability to emote and be all that he can be. Thank You Shayne Ryan
finally reading the Animator's Survival Guide and it is gooo-oood so far its just what i needed i think. it has lots of little nuggets of wisdom from great animators and its actually written with computer animators in mind at points i was surprised to see

"Boredum is Laziness Excitement is Happiness"

My life right now is like when your in the shower and the waters just a little too cold so you turn the heat knob up and you think at max twist its still too cold. give up, then go back to the knob to turn again to find that it just got stuck and there was still some nice twist, once twisted you are greeted with the warm water you wanted

Ive been listening to some books on tape lately which is great cause its hard to get my self to pick up a book lately, listened to "Confessions of an Economic Hitman", and now "The 4 Hour Work Week" which are great!

and im in a good place, another positive happening was with my toilet today.

after a week or more of a busted porcelain throne which involved filling up a big bucket usually twice to fill the basin every time you needed to go. The jamed water hose that could finally is and it flowed freely in a glorious fashion this morning... so much so that i made a little doodle of it. see.


So to wrap up im just thinking the worlds too big and lifes too short at the moment hope alls good by you

hot head

drawing that kinda shows where my mind is at times. at times i feel like doing a zillion things at the same time, usually ending up with nothing to show for it but a hot head

Tuesday, October 30, 2007

almost ready for animation!

Sunday, October 21, 2007

Soo Kurrent's Uv's are complete now aswell and he's looking hungry for some seeds, so im going to try and get them rigs done now

Thursday, October 18, 2007

Just watched The Host tonight and it was not at all like i expected i really liked it. It doesnt take it self too seriously and its really quality cinematography/CG check it out

sorry that came out like a Reading Rainbow review but i dont want to get into specifics and give anything away/ build it up more than i all ready have... because i went into it expecting a terrible movie that was in that really gruesome trend like hostile or saw.

Tuesday, October 16, 2007

not a major update; Warren's UV's are done and i plan on finishing Kurrents tonight. This render suprised me cause theres all these imperfections on Warren's bump right now but this lighting kinda hides those.... So i posted it captures the fellows i just pushed a little smirk on Warren

Let it fall apart and then come together again

Greetings from the weird and bizarre world of UVing

hey extremly inspirational artist Ben Fiquet worked on the shorts Burning Safari and Pyrats
i love his style, and want to texture my characters in a similar way

Saturday, October 13, 2007

i love the internet some times. While i havent left the house today, i was able to see some cool animals from the Foja Mountains

Hello hello, worked on a new flash today hope its appealing to others, im not sure if im getting a little obsessive with the realm of old Andrew Jackson political cartoons, its fun getting away from thesis for a bit i like juggling ideas around. But i dont like the amount of work still left to do on the big T. My teacher gave me the neck animation and he's going to explain how he did it tomorrow very excited to find that out. The JACKSON GAME will be made one day

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

ive been pulling and pushing verts all day but i think im finally happy with Kurrents silhouette

Flash version of Sow or Reap, it pretty much hits all the main points

Egon Scheile

Hey, i just stumbled on some work by Egon Scheile the other night and i really really am digging it. Some of it i think embodies the character im trying to make with Kurrent in ways i dont think im able to explain so im thinking about maybe adding some Egon kinda anatomy lines to Kurrents models cause its still not quite singing to me, how feel you? (Comment with anything at all related or not, curious if anyones reading)
