Pumpkin carving with mom. :) I did the outside two, she did the middle one! Happy Halloween! These pumpkins were last minute purchases of $1 each, and they were so easy to carve, it was totally worth it!

Vinyl Toys!

Here's my first attempt at painting vinyl figures! This little monkey glows in the dark and was bought from Toy2R at comic-con a few years ago. You can buy your own BabyQee here for $10:
First a sketch was drawn of course...
...then, the parts I wanted to glow were covered with stickers. I used a spray on primer & then painted the rest by hand with acrylic paints. As a last step, I sprayed on a glossy finish.

Next, I painted a vinyl figure I bought at Urban Outfitters made by Munny world. Mini Foomi was a the perfect shape for Marco P. the main character in my thesis project, so of course I couldn't resist making a mini-Marco! You can buy your own Munny here for $9.95:

Horse sketch

Our Amish neighbors were over the other day doing some work for us & I had fun doing this quick sketch of their horses.

Fundamentals of Texturing & Lighting

We had two major projects during the course of the summer semester which is just about over now. The first was the alley way project where we were given a black set model in Maya to texture using real photos, combining them in for the UV maps in photoshop.

For our final project we were given a photo and a blank model for a pumpkin, which we had to texture, light, and then composite so that the 3D pumpkin would become indistinguishable from the rest. I think I was getting close, but there is still more I could do with it.

Marco P!

My Norman mod for the main character of my thesis is finally starting to look good!

I'm building a new computer for faster rendering time and much more awesomeness! In commemoration I've spray painted my signature and Marco P. on the case! Whoo hooo :D
