I started another challenge over on simplymaya. This one's a lot shorter, just till Sunday night. The goal is to create a scene using just primitives (simple geometric shapes like cubes, spheres, cylinders etc). I just whipped up a couple screenshots to give other people ideas of what I was thinking about (I came up with the challenge).

We won silver in the speedskating, so I did this one:

And something abstract:

I'll do some more with proper lighting and shadows and everything. The point is to focus on composition, shape, form, contrast and value.

Sorry it's been a while. Working on photoshop tutorials right now.
And check out my new counter and clusterMap! Someone from Russia has been checking out my blog apparently. Cool!

Hey, I decided to re-enable the following gadget on the sidebar. So if you feel like following it, that'd be great. Just keep in mind people can then view your profile if you have one and view all the other blogs you're following whether your profile is visible or not. Nothing on the interwebs is sacred. That's all. I have nothing CG related to post. Sorry, I'm taking the evening off... (so what else is new, I hear you say).


I'll call that a wrap

Render's finished, posted on youtube

I'd appreciate it if I could get the number of views above 100,000... thanks.

For february I'm planning on focusing on learning premier, photoshop, after effects and some of those programs, so I don't know what I'll post, but I'll try to do something. I have an idea for a little project in maya I might do on the side when I'm tired of tutorials. In order to do it though, I'll probably have to watch more tutorials.

I finished "Around the World in 80 Days"... didn't quite like the ending, but overall it was fun to read. Next up I'm going to read "This is Your Brain on Music" which I've started a couple times, but I just need to spend the time on it, cause it's a really fascinating book from what I've read so far.
