coffee mafia wip

Posted in Labels: ,

 I couldn't snag a Domo coffee cup before they ran out at 7/11... so I made one myself! It's an Eckardt assignment that we get to work on more for next week, which is a good thing as I took only 5ish hours on it. So still a WIP!

Still midterms through, will update this post later with our VFX set extention! Plus NEW WIP business card design!

Here, a video also! Must sleep now!

captain steiner and the midterms

OH! and I have to say this first of all things... I met and got to talk to Neville Page! Man that guy is like a genius! Luckily I had also just bought January's 3D World Mag earlier that day, and was able to get him to sign it too!

He was really awesome to talk to, and I can't explain how awesome it was! He wrote, "Be Furious, Be Focused, Be Fabulous!" Great words of inspiration!

Okay... now on to:
However, here's a little organic model i did in 9ish hours for Chris. I still need to give him color and textures later, however it's a semi real figure of Captain Steiner form Final Fantasy IX!

So much more animation stuff coming soon,and I'm working on the header as well as a little illustration! Good luck friends with Midterms or Deadlines!

So Fly!

 FLIES! So many flies! This week we had some time to experiment with a fly that Chris Eckardt supplied us with. We had to rig the little bug up and shade/texture it up. I actually enjoyed it a lot, so here's the stuff:

^ Simple environment render with the buggers! 

^ Electron Microscope render

^ Then these where some Toon shader renders

Then a quick assignment for Coddington! I used a little sound clip from the Iron Giant, where Hogarth brings in a squirrel. The audio is really soft, but he says, "Oh, but he's not a pet mom... he's a FRIEND!"

Oh and it's almost Valentines' Day and Chinese New Year! My blog is almost a year old!
