Getting a decent start to the day, have to finish all my school work which unfortunately will take like 5-6 hours :-/ then it’s time to play with some cloth software! And as always I have some emails to send asking for work >=D

Haha, I do my homework on the first day each module now I’m out of jobs to do and just working on my own projects! I lack motivation when I don’t have a dead line, hope a freelance gig starts soon!
Heading out today to do some biking with my girlfriend, then I think I’m gonna poke around with an old model of a biker I had to work on for class. I See if I can’t make that into a really good Zbrush sculpt. Wanna push my clothing detail to the next level now.
Well.. I learned a bit about color palettes’s for video games and how to not overload a user today, had some really helpful pdfs from dota 2 about character creation for a specific purpose. I use a lot of the same techniques but nowhere near to the extent that they are. Here’s my updated concept art, that will be fully rendered in a week.For this update, I created a less busy blade so the user has a place to rest his eye when things get too busy. I created gradients going from the bottom up to help ground each piece, I changed the color of the glow to be tertiary to my purple on the color wheel and the brown is also a blended tertiary color.
Week two! Well, it’s time for my second week of classes. I just finished a few big freelance gigs and one small one for a client so I have some good amount of extra time to spend on school today! I’m hoping to do at least one speed sculpt of faces today so we’ll see how that goes I suppose! Maybe it’s time to start thinking about my demo reel?
Well… I don’t exactly need to go buy new clothes and impress anyone with my dashing good looks today like I did in high school! First day of summer classes today, I can never figure out why schools waste the first 2-3 weeks with joke work before we get into serious stuff. Maybe that would make sense when people don’t understand what it takes to get good grades but I’m in a masters program now! Lets get into this!!
Well, about to finish up all the work for this contract I’m working on right now. Really stoked about the pieces I hope I can show them eventually!!
UFC UFC UFC! Gotta love free fight nights, way easier on the wallet! Well I’m sculpting on this big project that has a 2 week deadline and it’s still goin awesome! Not sure when I can show anything but I’m really stoked for it! Even bigger projects are on the horizon so that’s cool too! Cheers. Back to sculpting I go!
