Have fun!

This is mainly for you guys who don't know about my personal art. Plus, I thought I would mix it up a bit and post something other than thesis work (but I am still working on that of course, you better believe it!). Here are some artworks I've done in 2007 and some now in 2008. You can find these artworks and others I've done on my deviantart page here:

Lemme know what you think~ I hope you guys like it!

Monday, February 18, 2008 a theater near you!

Today was the submission deadline for thesis poster images. You were allowed to submit as many as you wanted for consideration, and even make images for postcards- but I put all my time into this one poster. I hope that it will be selected- if so, there will be a huge glossy poster in the SVA Computer Art building on one of the walls... so wish me luck!

This image makes me really happy, and I'm so pleased with how things came out... it's like, a symbol that I've accomplished something big so far... but of course, I've still got a long ways to go in this short time left. I want to see these guys moving on screen and beyond these still images in their final renders already!

Yay. This is my first test render shot (just this single frame for now) that has this degree of finish with a completed background and completed character with completed animation all here. It's pretty much a shot that could be rendered out completely if not for the constant revisions that can always be made to things. It's just a test after all... doesn't feel super final or concrete but it's getting there.

A note on the books: I don't know who made those beautiful book spines but I give them credit for their wonderfulness... Those are taken from various stock images which I then adjusted as needed to fit my thesis' look and colors, and then applied to the polys... but for the most part they are intact from how the look in the original photos. And there you go- some kind of magic trick revealed... I guess??? (I just needed to say that because I'd feel a bit guilty if people thought I painted those one by one... oh no nooo....)

Keep working hard everyone we can do it. I really hope you like the look of this shot.

Thesis Love

This is for you guys. Let's work our hardest and our best in these final months. We can do it!

Edit: note this is a picture featuring Will Clark's thesis character "Warren", David Han's alien, and my character "Read".
