Woah, long time and no update, sorry but I was busy.

Anyway, I was randomly inspired to avatar myself today, so after Googling I came across this post, and decided to try a few of the services. Continue reading

Blood Trail

Holy craziness. I’m not a connosseiur of CG stuff, but I’ve come across a fair amount, and this is without a doubt the most brutal, visceral, gory, violent piece I’ve ever seen. That said, I quite enjoyed the article and the fact that someone without prior experience was able to push the envelope so fully. Good inspiration.

Death Star vs. The Enterprise

I’m a regular Geekologie/Iwatchstuff/Superficial reader, and today on Geekologie I find this… in the wake of the recent Star Trek movie someone made a short viral-looking piece where we see a bunch of the Imperial military machinery and the Enterprise sort of weirdly hovering off in the distance over the ocean near San Fransisco (if you look closely, when the camera pans you can see it swing past the Golden Gate Bridge). The effects are actually pretty well done. The only thing I have a problem with is the Enterprise just looks a little weird, maybe it’s too bright or something, but it doesn’t fit right in the scene. The Death Star laser I like, but the other Imperial elements that are definitely CG (namely the walkers) are to bright, in my opinion, and don’t seem to fit into the scene too well. Anyway…be your own judge and click thru the jump for the video.

Yup, you got it, more o’ the good stuff.  Found some more useful tutorials today.  This one’s basically a crash course in the application, but I figured it’s a good addition to my growing list of resources.  Can’t hurt to revisit your basics every once in a while.  I’m exhausted at the moment, had a tuna burrito, then a lamb burger, then pizza and apparently it’s taking more energy to metabolize than I’d anticipated.  But that’s fine by me.  Sleep never hurt anybody :P.

Anyway…here’s the link, and here’s another random resource in case you were interested in that last building-custom-themes-for-Wordpress video series I posted about.  Enjoy :P.
