I'm in the tubes

I started up a youtube account here.


I still have yet to get a high quality video up. The documentation out there is not helping as much as I had hoped.

I think this boy's cheese has done slid off his cracker

I was doing a lot of boring very noncreative promo stuff at work. Even though I had an interest in architecture as a kid I really don’t like to do schematics and practical industrial design. Having to make changes to an object solely on the fact that some dumb unmonitored child might get stuck, loose and eye, or otherwise injure themselves in a way that might cause reason for a lawsuit, and then they complain that the ride looks stupid, drives me crazy. I’m more of a let Darwin work his magic kind of a guy. Anyway I needed something interesting to do before I went nuttier than an acorn, so I took and hour to do this. I didn’t think anything would come of this break from madness, but turns out it was good enough to post.

I’ll sleep when I’m dead

I find it strange that after a very long day at work I find I can have the most energy. I also find that I can be my most creative late at night while by body relaxes the days problems fade away and my mind is left to imagine and create. Here are some of those late night drawings from the past two days. I tend to draw with very clean lines, a byproduct of thinking I needed a backup plan as an architect if this whole animation thing never worked out. Because of this I was taught that neatness can count for as much as accuracy. I’m not sure if this is totally a bad thing, but I try to loosen up my drawings sometimes because I know that can be just as rewarding. These images are evidence of that fact. I hope I have learned something new today.

The inspiration that is Ridley Scott

So I’ve been watching a lot of aliens recently, the first movie being my all time favorite science fiction/horror movie. Anyway I really love how the alien is always lying in wait for someone, and then slowly unfolds itself. Then proceeds to destroy all who are in it’s path, assuming their name is not Ripley. Also for those unawares a second alien vs. predator is in the works, and I just got over the trauma of the first. Heaven help us.

something old, something new, something blue

I am terrible at updates.I have a lot of personal projects in the works and have little to show for it right now, so i dug up an old piece. This head you may remember from an earlier post where I put up the flat shaded model. I actually textured this a long time ago but was not entirely happy with it, I planed to rework it but never did. I think the eyes still need a bit of work. Anyway I decided to post it anyway. The new piece isn't all that new. Red guy here is some photoshop over an old sketch. I think someone stole his waffles, and you know you should always eat a balanced breakfast. I've been reading a lot of Batman lately, and well, Catwoman is hot. This is actually more like a cos-player with more lifelike proportions, as apposed to how she appears in the comics. Jim Lee is the man!

fig. 0107

Just doing a little coloring practice on a sketch from last weekends figure drawing. I like to photoshop in colors which resemble red conte, I'm not sure why.
