Box Models




Well, after two and a half days on Maya, I kinda know how to texture...more or less.  The exercise today involved us being given a template then, creating our own texture/boxman to go around cubes.  Seamlessly.  We first start out with one cube for the first exercise.  Afterwards we were then provided a Maya file with the whole character.  I found it a lot of fun.  I did all the drawing/ texturing in Flash.  Wacoms are not provided at school and drawing in photoshop with a mouse is a pain so as soon as I found out they had Flash...that's all she wrote.  This is good anyway as I do most of my animate-able character designs in Flash and this will be applicable to a few animation ideas I have in the future.   I am barely touching the surface of Maya yet but I will get there.  It will be good to go through some tutorials on my own before class next week.  We shall see how we go.

I am still working on my first school of fish painting.  It's taking a while I must admit.  The aim is to get it done today and scanned at Officeworks for a print run the next day.  I am hoping that everything goes well and that there are no delays come Sunday morning for printing.

Some journal entries!

Hi, hi! 

How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri.

I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more. 

Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

IF: Mail

"Peggy was so surprised when she discovered that........"

This is my submission for Illustration Friday: Mail.  Thought I would leave it open ended for everyone else to fill in the blanks.

I haven't been able to submit for two weeks because of freelance work and it feels so nice to have something up for this week.  I am still on fashion illustration mode and enjoying it a lot.  Done in Flash and tweaked in Photoshop.

IF: Burning

Howdy!

This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash.

I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!
