Sloop John B

Started teaching myself ZBrush today for the first time, and this is what I ended up with (after I painted it in Photoshop, of course).

ZBrush is an incredible program, I've completely fallen in love with it, and even grown accustom to it's odd interface (odd compared to Maya at least).

Planning on doing a few character portraits in this style, this one not included.

Time to sleep.

The Watcher's Monolith

Autumn has finally arrived in Savannah Georgia, two months later then I'm used to, but the temperatures are finally bearable (to me anyways).

Started listening to the new Agalloch album... then this happened. Still pushing/pulling values on it though, but I plan on finishing it completely.

First quarter of grad school is finished. I've never learned so much in such a short amount of time. I plan on making a post summing it all up within the next week or so, and will also be announcing a big project of mine I'm about to start with two classmates shortly afterwards (worth nothing, seriously).

In the meantime, here's a sample of another thing I'm working on. I cropped it cause I haven't rendered anything else. 70 degrees and sunny in late November. I love it.

Show of Shows

This year's Animated Show of Shows, a collection of animated shorts, was fantastic. Thank you Ron Diamond for coming to Savannah!

The adaption of Shaun Tan's "The Lost Thing" I found especially amazing. A film like that done by three people? Crazy.

What Happened?

Even if you're painting realistically, if it does not work on an abstract level, then it does not work. Period.

Same goes for animation.

I've known this for a while, but one of those things I always need to remind myself.

...suddenly Georgia got cold.
