Merry (late) Christmas! Was in Vegas for a couple of days and stayed at the Venetian. Here's some photos!

I haven't been there in 5 years and for some reason it seemed a lot more eye-opening and relaxing than in the past. Nothing too crazy though cause I'm not 21 just yet. We also went to an awesome all-you can eat sushi place off the Strip called Goyemon, and I think it's probably the best sushi I had so far in the US. I also found out one of my cousins from Canada is going to school for video and game design. Shweet!

Happy holidays!

3D Fundamentals 2 Final Presentation

Just finished 3DF2 about two hours ago. Most demanding class this term for sure. Be sure to check out the helmets that will be around in the gallery and in 230 if you're around Art Center's Hillside Campus! There will be rotations of helmets so there should be a couple different helmets if you visit on other days.

Process book here:

Final presentation:

And last a digital rendering of the helmet in a scene...

Term is over, and I'm dunsies!

Some environments I'm working on for the final for DP2.

Two more paintings to go!

Some black and white thumbnail refinements for Design Process 2. These are for what would be my interpretation of Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke.

Design Process 2 Image References

Looking at some more references for my environments for Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke.

Design Process 2 Artist References

For Design Process 2. References are always nice to have, especially laid out on single pages to see. These are artists/styles to try and emulate for the work we will later do in the class.

Le Mech

Taking a quick blogger dump since I haven't been faithfully posting. Especially since I'm back in term.

On and off. Started in class and finished in another class a week after. Total hour time though was only about 2 hours though.

To me there's a lot of appeal to be able to draw things in mirror. Corel Painter 12 offers this and it's brush system is definitely way more simple, intuitive, and efficient as compared to 11. For some reason though my Corel Painter 12 is really buggy and crashes every time I try to export a file though... Otherwise it's pretty fun to work in it though actually.

Self Portraito

Assignment for Digital Design 1.

Original photo.

Yeeh it got a bit too feminine looking. Oh well. It's what happens when you pose like you're in a lip gloss commercial in airsoft gear.
