"Always Moving Forward" Is a visual hair short I was involved in with my good friend Scott Bentley and the B-Concept Artistic team. I am credited as Film Producer and music is by Shadrick Ferrar.

This is my edit as it has more documentary shots than the edit at the hair show.
It's was more less run an gun,but each time I do these flicks I learn something new working with Scott's art direction.

Thanks for watching.

Alchemy art

I'm feeling a lot better now.

Found a very nice vector base drawing pogrom called Alchemy that can also make art using a microphone with it.Last image I coloured in Gimp,as Alchemy is more about creating form out of chaos.

Marvel/Disney Parodies are funny.

Well... Marvel entertainment has been bought by Disney for 4 billion dollars.
Now they have 5000 characters form the comic book world to peer up with other stuff they own.Just business right?

The parodies have started and are very funny:)

There is no turning back from this.
It's not like a company is going to buy Disney out.

Oh well.

Speed lines

Click to play

Any time I pick a comic book I'm always trying to figure out how to animate the images.Speed lines have been around for a while in moving images, but I have only seen the Japanese do it how it wold look like in a comic.

Used hair particles,made a few keyframes and rotated it in the same spot.
Going to add this as one of my effect shot in the Sci-fi short I making.

Painting with Polygons

Another blenderhead came across a SIGGRAPH paper about using stand alone 3d software to create a painterly style art.Others and myself started to see if it was possible with Blender.
Everyone uses Suzanne the monkey and I used Big buck bunny last test,so this time I'm using Jim from the Blender animation dvd.

Big Buck Bunny dance.

Click for video.

Lost audio when switch to Youtube.

I was watching a presentation with Mdot strange about how he did the motions for the characters in his music video,and thought that mabye I could do the same with the record to mouse function in blender.

The motions are bumpy in a few places, but it is only a test.

Killer inspiration

No art to show off today,busy working on storyboards for a animated short.
More on that later.

Just got done watching Killer bean forever,and I must say I'm impressed that Jeff Lew pulled off this one man animated movie.I watched the making of and there are tons of tips for animators wanting to follow this path.Even if your not into animating it's still entertaining to watch.
Well it's early in the morning and I'm felling sick from drinking two beers so I am out.

Going crazy with nodes.

When I'm not working on clients stuff,I'm usually experimenting with Blender 3d.
Here are a few throw aways in goofing around with the node editor.
Just some lighting test.
Think I might go with a mix of the 3rd an 4th down.

Almost finised the war.


What a battle.
I just got my P.C. upgraded to Quad core system.It's pretty much a new computer and is blazing fast than what I was using before.Going to change the O.S to Ubuntu 64bit later today to use it's full potential.

This was a long time coming.

Switch to Linux.

I’ve recently changed my operating system from windows xp to Ubuntu Linux and I have to say I’m quite happy with th switch. I’ll probably us windows in a studio environment or on a friends p.c.,but as building my own computer it will be a Linux distro from now on. Most of the software I used was open source anyways except for Artrage and I got Wine doors to get it to work. I even using Open Office to type this and the spell check is pretty cool. Also did a update to Ubuntu studio and there are all these really nice audio software that you make music with,be it real or virtual instruments .A lot of cool artwork is on it way=)

Now on to getting Blender/freestyle svn to work on this.
