Headache from texturing.

Not much to post today -

worked all day. my brain is mush from trying to texture. I think I've discovered my least favorite thing to do in the industry. Good thing I can only get better at it.

took a small break and played the wii. a mouse came out while I was playing and crawled into my roommates graham cracker box. He ate for a bit while I tried to move super quietly and pick the box up and trash it. This mouse is the devil. He's un-catch able and been a nuisance since Masala Bollywood undergone construction. Of course Ashley had to call as I'm reaching for the box and the mouse scurried out.

heres some good lighting effects you can achieve in Pirateshop, I mean Photoshop.

Glaring through my hangover


I've had my days and nights planned out as to when I would be doing my Modeling and Anim hw, and when I get a curve ball and email questions to teachers my whole production screeches to a halt. Not fun. So i've been trying to keep busy by doing what other work I can gather together.

I scanned in my rough draft of boards that will be used in the animatic for the rough cut of music.

I did my last production art still. I didn't get the depth I wanted in this but it's done and that's what matters.

That is all. :(

Spent my "1 day a week" with ashley and kat and erin. watched the disappointingly lucky UGA beat Auburn . Thank god.

Caught the Last Bit of Sun


So as my 'stunnahing' "followers" know I was in a wedding last weekend and thus missed out severely loving my 2nd wifey, Maya. I was unable to do some hw so I made it up for this week. Here is an outdoor scene lit with Maya Software.

There are a few things I'd like to change, for one being the reflective map on the lamp post metal - the img keeps getting repeated a bazillion time, and I have exhausted my troubleshooting stamina. It's more or less done. That's what's good. ENjoy.

Unwrapping a Nintendo Wedding

Small update tonight. I've sat down and reorganized what needs to be done in within the next 5 weeks ( end of Fall Semester) and boy is it a lot. When isn't it a lot though? Unwrapping UVs is hell, though I believe I am getting the hang of it much better now. I posted some prelim UV Maps for a model. There's Three-Dimensional boots, clothing, ak-47, goggles, and a belt among all those 2d pixels. As much as I enjoy modeling I am definately noticing what areas of 3D hold my interest and drive.



A small recap from the Halloween/Wedding weekend.



I sit in front of my computer 24/7, So You Don't Have To, reaching into the depths of the internet to bring you the best links of the day.

Polar Bears know Good Web Design

On Thursday before leaving for the wedding weekend I discovered a Cracked.com photoshop contest. the entries are meant to be crappy - no professional photo manipulation in the whole thread. Here was my rush job for "the day after the 2012 elections". I would have liked to done alot more to it but you know how trains don't wait for you.

I've done the dirty work of finding great links - So You Don't Have To. ENjoy.
