Maya, Memes, Doodles and old WIPs

It is actually really cool seeing my (SUPER ROUGH) background sketch in 3d form! Maya is becoming more enjoyable! Lajos was impressed with my walk cycle, and if I keep doing it 5 more times I'd be a pro at it. :D
The idea of modeling backgrounds (tekkon kinkreet also has a bunch of flat images on models I think?) for 2D animation sounds pretty exciting. John Lasseter definitely knew what was up when he started thinking about the combination of 2D and 3D for animation, eventually to full on 3D haha.

Last week I was feeling pretty stressed and asked Ashoree (http://stemcellkids.blogspot.com/) to do a meme with me. I also asked another friend to draw with me, and was grateful that he complied even though he doesn't really draw much. Hahah.

I really want to finish those backgrounds from the last post. @__@ Right now I'm working on a comic for Zack (http://zack-zlog.blogspot.com/) and.. I would have been a couple of pages ahead by now but losing this afternoon's work from something stupid like saving over a pre-existing file was pretty bad. Comics are hard enough the first time around! DX
But, at the same time I'm really greateful, I've been getting a lot of support from people and I know I can do this. It's just a matter of stamina and perseverance haha.

Dude I want to make artwork so that I can make prints out of finally. u__u HOW AWESOME WOULD THAT BE ughfalskfd.

Also I found out I can't really go to anime boston since I'm attending a wedding, hohoh. o_o

Spring break is only a week away. Oh god, the thought of all that time to work on stuff really thrills me (no, seriously.) I've been working on stuff day and night and would want some more free time haha.

In other news I'm going be working on a small bit of a project with MISS LIZ (http://lizgiggsketchblog.blogspot.com/) to help improve ourselves as artists hahaha. She's going to be posting six conceptual sketches a week, and I'll be making a short comic out of those six drawings. This way, maybe I can grow more comfortable drawing comics, and Liz can grow more as a conceptualizer. And hopefully me drawing comics will inspire both of us to do more comics. :D



  1. It's funny how you are so talkative on your blog posts, and I say almost nothing. And in person it is nigh the opposite. I enjoy your posts though.

  2. That's what blogs are for, man.

    you cry in em

  3. I know I should totally do an entry on crying about maya. Title it-I love the SOB but it keeps breakin' my heart!
    P.S. Man bbq sounds good right D:

  4. I don't know enough about it for it to break my heart yet. But geez, it takes so much work to animate something (without it feeling robotic, of course.)

    .. I can only imagine! ):

    BBQ always sounds good. always.

  5. Maya just has a good habit of crashing that's all, unless maya 10 isn't so bad I have yet to mess with that version.

  6. Well.. yeah our school has a very old maya program, so I wouldn't know. XD It hasn't crashed for me yet but I have seen occassions of it.

    we need a newer version haha

    (sorry for signing off suddenly last night, meebo was being retarded so I gave up ]8 )
