3D World: rendering part 04

I want a render farm.  A render farm is essentially a whole bunch of computers at your disposal so you can render.  Render, render, render!  This is pretty much how anything 3D is made.  This is me taking over majority of the machines in class today.  Lucky no one else was rendering at the first half of class so I got a huge chunk of wire frame renders done before class ended.  I left 3 computers overnight running to finish off the rest.  I am hoping nothing goes wrong and that the shots are all ready to be picked up tomorrow morning when I arrive.

I am exhausted.  I was waking up almost every hour last night to check on my coloured renders.  Technically, I only had to get up twice but I was stressing out so bad that I was automatically waking up every hour.  I hate rendering.  I hate this part of the process because there really isn't anything you can do but wait.

The good news is that all 2200 frames of my coloured renders are done and ready to compile tomorrow in class.  Rendering with two computers from home took me 4 days.  4 rather exhausting and painful days.

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


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!
