I've made further advancements to the DAC contest. Been busy like crazy with my portfolio lately (one thing is still not finished) but I found time to do the DAC. I need to concentrate more on that if I even want to be qualified as a contestant. There's some rules (not too hard to achieve but still), like showing people the progress of your work and explain the steps and stuff (or something like that). Anyway, I'm going to be, it's late and my ears hurt because of the headphones I have on and listening to Creed (while modeling).

Portfolio update and contest.

Man, been busy lately the last couple of days. To start things off. I have updated my portfolio site with added sections and pages. I embedded a javascript for the 3D Gallery instead of having it open a new window which I disliked a lot. Then I re-organized stuff and all which goes with that.

However, the biggest news is that I entered a contest. It's the 3D Buzz - Digital Artists Competition where you have to create a digital image in the halloween theme. The image can be anything, even traditional paintings and photography as long as the end result is a digital image (i.e. just take a picture of that image).
I however, decided to stay inside Maya and ZBrush. I made a quick rough sketch along with some initial modeling. In the next couple of days I hope to have made more, depends how busy I'll get with other stuff.

Anyway, that's all the news I had for today, or tonight actually. It's 3.02 AM here and I'm hungry and sleepy. So, I'll say goodnight from here and see you next time.

Mouth update.

Forget about what I said that I will do the body topology, after seeing work from Jackson Gichuki (aesis412 on CGSociety) I just couldn't resist redo the mouth even more. I suppose it was a good thing, do the things that you burn for at the moment before you forget it, right? Anyway, enjoy.

Mouth changes.

Ok, I made a few mouth changes, especially to the corners. This is as far as I'll go now. I'm going to take a break from the head and redo the topology on the body instead. I'll post this image up for critique on CGSociety and see what people say. That's it for now. Next update will be posting images on the topology of the body.

Bought portfolio domain and webhotel

Today I bought a domain that I will be using as my portfolio. I wasn't able to find a place for my server to be at so I had to go with a webhotel. I don't mind really, it is incredibly cheep and it will be up 24/7 so I won't have to worry about issues I had before.

So, from now on my online portfolio domain is going to be:
I had a different before but I didn't like it too much in the end and it was too much hassle to move that one over to the new provider.
When time permits I will be re-creating my portfolio from the ground up and add more stuff to it. Now that provider also provides a blog, however I don't know if I will be using that blog, as I will upload images and stuff and I have a limited space for that now. We'll see what I'll do.
