Posting on CGMeetup.net

I woke up this morning and looked at my email inbox as per usual. I wasn't expecting all the likes on my vimeo posting. My inbox was swamped with likes. I found out later in the afternoon, through my friend Alex Liki, that my reel had been posted on CGMeetUp.net. Almost 3,500 views in one day. A big thank you to the people at CGMeetup! Here's the link:

Another Maquette

This is still a work in progress , but I got this sculpture close enough that I could do a paint over. I'm more or less happy with how my second ever photoshop painting turned out. Looking forward to doing the same treatment on the other characters.

Concept Art

It's been over a month since my last update and things have been crazy busy for me. I started a new job last month as I needed to pay some bills to keep the project afloat. It's been good to get back into a film production again, but it means time on my short is very limited now. Here's some of the latest concept art I've done for the pigs. These are my first photoshop paintings and unfortunately I ran out of time before I could finish the skin tones to my liking. I'll just have to revisit them at a later date.

Ready for Moulding and Casting

Here's the finished bust of Louie from my animated 3D short. I'll be making a mould and casting him in resin soon. In the meantime I'm working on a second pig and a new website. I had so much fun sculpting this guy and wish there were more hours in the day to do more. Maybe I'll do a series.....

I snapped my "G" string tonight.... No not that kind. I haven't played guitar since I was in grade 6, but I still need a "G" string. I use it as a tool for sculpting the finishing details, and unfortunately none of the music stores are open this late at night. Looks like I'll just have to finish the sculpture tomorrow.

Animation Maquette Almost Complete

Just a few more little things to be done before I consider him finished.

This is a clay sculpt, but will ultimately be cast in resin for the Kickstarter campaign.

Louie Animation Maquette for Kickstarter Campaign

I've had a few days away from the sculpt, so I thought I should put some time into it today. Still very much a work in progress. I'm not completely happy with his expression yet.
