Zbrush Time Lapse and some Photography.

Among a couple things my friend went ahead and made a time lapse of a shield I made to learn hard surface in Zbrush.  I need to give proper credit to the original artist who concepted this piece but I am unable to find who it was. ass soon as I know I will post a URL to his site here. the video is about 5 minutes and not very good. Bu t id id learn a lot. I need to finish that Gong I started after this soon.

Also some updates to my Flickr collection from the winter of 2012.

12 months 12 Projects

I have a lot of things to look forward to this coming 2013. for one the world didn't end so I will still hold on to the secret Mayan password until that day comes:). secondly I intend on releasing a game me and a couple friends are working on on the side. lastly I want to commit to complete a personal project every month. So i should have by the end of 2013 12 projects. on e for every month. I am unsure if calling my fully revamped and updated site my first project. Its going to come down to keeping it real simple and just updating it with my work from the last couple years or if I will fancy it up a bit. still undecided. until then though Feliz Navidad to all!

PS. some of the links here might seem broken but they are not. I am updating the blog as I use it. it should be complete real soon.

a little bit more of portfolio digging and planning for the website.

Alex Alvarez Foliage method.

Been looking into some foliage stuff lately. been feeling inspired to do a small render of my own. Alex's techniques on this matter are superb. I recommend checking him out. I posted a little snippet from his site below.

Alex Alvarez: "Forest Path

I’ve been obsessing over natural environments lately, developing my workflow for plants/trees and techniques for object placement. Maya, Mental Ray, Paint Effects, Onyx and a little Zbrush for the path. 110 million polys. Rendered with physical sun/sky and all miaMaterialX. Surprised by how many polys I can throw at Mental Ray!"
