Quickie - Brainssss

Some animals smile in a really cute way, even if they can break your arms and bite your head off (think = cats, dogs, bears, monkeys, etc...). And some other animals... they smile in a really cute way too... except they look really evil while doing it (think = crocodiles, snakes, piranhas, spongebob squarepants, etc...).

I don't know why I'm even thinking about that. Anyway, quickie sketch before going to sleep on Sunday and while wifey is playing SimCity4 (around 30 mins of doodling).

Nite guys.

It's Not Easy Being Green

Coupla days ago we were in the greenscreen studio downstairs, testing out the lights, making sure everything works before the students start shooting for their VFX projects. This was a simple test to make sure things could work. Looking back on this, I really should've used a tripod... tracking handheld footage is unnecessarily painful.

*thanks to Jafni the Green Ranger for setting up the lights and to Nadia for being so good at... walking straight

D. Tales

Not much of a post, really - opened up the Longneck model and started etching out some subtle skin detail on him (a bit too subtle in fact... maybe I should make em pop em out a bit more later...)

Blubberboy [Part 3, R.I.P.]

Arghhhhh. Haven't really had the time lately to do any personal work ( translation = anything FUN).

Anyways, tomorrow I'm teaching a facial animation class. Came up with these 2 quick samples this evening. Still no textures on poor Blubberboy, and to tell the truth, I'd rather move on to something else. So... bye bye, fattie.
