Textures and cloth sim finished

yea so as you can see what needed to be finished was finished. The cloth simulation is all working with a cool wind effect but I cant render it out to a movie file just yet because i don't know how with Maya without a third party program but once i get it rendered out and stuff I will put it up here. Now its time for morph targets and for those of you who dont know what that is its basically making facial emotion buttons and sliders. So I will be knee deep in Maya documentation for most of today.

back in the real world I didnt get the job at Toys R Us they said they were looking for people who were year round and i was only available to be seasonal and only 3 months of the season at that so i can understand. but in good news I found out this morning that my car will probably be done mid next week!! man I am excited to be able to drive myself around again pretty much can't wait.

almost done with textures

Getting closer to finishing my textures! so so close indeed just need to do the back of his head and then his eyeballs and ill be good to go.

In other News I should get my car back soon or so I hope the car will have been gone for a month now on Monday :(( sad days. I am also trying to get a job at Toys R Us but not exactly sure if i am going to get that job or not because the interview didn't go so well or at least I didn't think so. But I do know two people that work there so I may end up getting it after all. when I showed up it was about 10 minutes prior and i got into the back room about 5 minutes to and there were only 3 of us and then after my interview was over there were like 5 more people waiting so pretty much bad bears for the people who showed up late that's bad joojoo. other than that its just been me and Whitney hangin out enjoying ourselves in this absolutly wonderful weather that god has blessed us with :D. We even had some wine last night and looked at the stars it was really fun. other than that not a whole lot going on.

Modeling my first human

Wow so it has been forever since i made my last post! over a month ago bleh. So life update I am in the after math of a crazy month! I had strep and mono at the same time near the end of school and let me tell you that was not fun, fortunately for me Whitney was there taking care of me for a little while and that helped a ton and by some miracle of god she hasn't gotten sick at all she must have some sort of super immune system. then i got in a car crash! oh man scary fortunatly i didnt hit the lady that hard at all and noone was hurt sept my gator. normaly my car would have been fine and it would have just been a fender bender but the lady had a bike rack on the back of her car so the point of impact was really small and messed my poor gators face up pretty good :/.

so we pulled over to exchange information and the lady seemed kinda whiney and complained about having a migrain and she mentioned that she was sore once. she filed for injury and I have to say that im skepticle but if she truely is hurt I hope that she gets the money she needs. She was on the phone with her parents the whole time so when we went to exchange information her parents came and she called her husband.....I feel so bad for this woman...her husband was a complete and utter jack ass. He pulls up in his red striped mini cooper lol and gets out and teh first thing he says to his wife is " why am I here?" what kind of ass holel does that seriosly give your wife a hug and ask her if she is okay I had to give whitney a hug to compensate for his lack of kindness.

We left and then she called me and wanted to file a police report so we did that and then the police officer gave me a ticket because that is a rule that you will automaticly get a ticket if a police officer is involved. So now I have pretty much everything underwraps except for the ticket and i just need to pick up the parts for my car and get it fixed at the college. Thank you whitney for being so willing to do all the driving you have been a great sport about it!

Alrighty Now for the projects and pretty pictures and stuff. so since the summer started I have been working pretty diligantly on this character that is pretty much going to be my hail mary pass in terms of getting an internship and hopefully a career eventually. But what I have done so far are the model sheets and a model that is about 60-70% of my first human model done but yea here is what I have done so far.

The Frost Child is born

so this week I have been working on concept art for a story that I have been working on. I finished the painting this morning and I'm pretty happy with the results. it could use a lot more polish as a piece of art but for the perposes that I wanted it for this works pretty well. Now I have to start on the turn around sheets for modeling.

Times are good :)

Alrighty it is March 20th! almost my 21st birthday on top of all the other ah-mah-zong (amazing) things going on in my life right now! I should start with the most exciting news which is that me and Whitney are now officially a couple so now that spring break is here we have been hanging out a lot watching the Ali G show isa very neice! we also made some awesome peanut butter passion bars that i ate most of in one day and by we made i actually mean me watching Whitney do most of the work and me trying a few things and mucking it up lol! but it was a lot of fun regardless. I also met her brother and his fiance and they were really cool!! they said we might go and all hang out with one another sometime soon which would be a blasty blast for sure :).

in other career related news Steven the ceo of Algitt Studios has secured a pitch date a week and a half from now at south peak our number 1 choice publisher he is also trying for microsoft which would be pretty cool and another company thats located here in Bellevue. Steven is pretty confident that he can sell Algitt if he can actually talk to someone and now he finay has that opportunity so i have high hopes! i would love to start my career this summer that would be pretty amazing. plus if i do that then I can also get credit for my sr. projects class early and not have to worry about it next year and in its sted have a paying job which would alswase be nice because having disposable income is nice.

In school I have juat been working on my jr project and making some props for my game team. Physics is sooooooo hard :( i am so glad im an artist so that i forget this crap as soon as I'm done sometimes the class is really helpfull when the teacher is telling about how things work and why they work the way they do but as soon as he starts talking in formulahs and numbers i dont have the will power necesary to pay attention for more thna 5 minuts at a time I physicly cant even if i try and even if i do manage to pay attention for an extended period of time somehow most of the time i cant understand what he is doing so i have to rely on doing the homework in a big group of people whrre usually one person knows what they are doing to get my work done....its stupid this class needs to be altered to be something usefull for the artists.

this week im posting my rendered final versions of my genari final dialogue and all the animation that I have done for my game team so far aswell as the prop and teh concept art that I have done for them.
