New Personal Project

Well, it's time to push myself...again.  Time to learn to do things that I can definitely improve on, so I'm starting a new personal project.  This project is going to be a 30 second short, fully written, designed, modeled, textured, rigged, animated, and rendered by yours truly.  I've already started on the first parts, where I've written the script and designed the first character (there's only two).  One of my pet projects wherever I am is to try to optimize the pipeline so that it is as fast as possible, while allowing me more time to focus on the ART of the project rather than the technical aspects of the project.  While I like the technical stuff, the further I get in my career, the more I realize that I am constantly going back to my first love - the art.  I am trying to have a timeline for this project, and hope that I can stick to it with how insanely crazy my life is.  Thankfully, this project has the full backing (and pushing forward) of my wife.  So we will see how the next 6 months goes.  I plan to post all of the progress on another blog, where you can follow along with this crazy journey.  Here is a sample of one of the designs.  Hope you like it (the face is still in design review for me :) )

Some people are just fun to draw :)

New iPad Drawing

I'm starting to get used to drawing on the iPad. However, I still feel that the stylus tip is way too fat for my liking. But maybe that's a good thing. It keeps me from noodling a drawing to death like I usually do.
