Back on Track

Well its been a bit. I have a few demo reels in circulation but not too many, I'm currenty working on upgrading my reel with some new pieces, hopefully they will be finished in a week or two. Then its back to the search.
Of course thats not to say that I'm not always on the lookout, only I hope to have some improved character animation sequences. Anyhow back to work.

Life's a Changin

Wow its been along while since my last post. Hmmm what to say and where to start. Well lets begin with. YAY I'm finally married.. Guess you couold say I'm part of the grown ups club now. Hehehe.
I havn't been very active with my own stuff outside of work and I jknow I really need to get back on that horse b4 it rides to far into the sunset. I have a character I'm still working on, The Boba Fett from one of the cgsocieties challenges. As the images below suggest its still very much a work in progress. I may have bit off more than I could chew here at work but I was just so incredubly zealous when I first started I wanted to make an impression. we still have some after hours stuff going on but I'm trying to not be so involved that I leave no time for any of my own stuff.

Regardless, I hope to be a touch more frequent with my posts.We shall see.. Also of note my good friend jeong got hired on at Starz a few weeks back, good for him.

Well hope to be posting soon. L8tr

here are the latest bits that I have started. They are being used for the CgTalk Conpetition, so there is still alot to do but here they are.


Wow its been like a month since I last posted anything, things are going well for me right now, I start an internship this coming monday. I have also been working in Max to get a handle on it. I have a basic walk/run cycle pretty much completed in Max and I have begun one of the Cgtalk modeling competitions. I'm doing Boba Fett, obviously its a star wars challenge, and as those who know me I can't resist star wars. Hopefully I will have something to show to ya soon. Have a good 1.

Second Beginnings

FANTASTIC.... I have finaly completed my base modeling reel, between this and my animation reel I hope to land some work. Well here's hoping.

And here is my updated Animation Reel, which is also below, I figure might as well keep them together. It will make it easier for prospective employers.

Particle Woe's

Well I spent way too much time trying to get the particles for my anim and model that I could ave spent more time doing something else. Unfortunatley they didn't turn out nearly as expected, I have my modelling reel version below and the little bit of fire on the hands actually isnt too bad, I have to re-render my animation though since the particles do some freaky things, they screw up the shadows, may have to do them as a seperate pass, but they also turn some of the frames into silhouettes, don't know why. I took them out of those particular frames, the frames render fine in turn but now it looks kind of goofy. I think I will do the animation without the particles and just use combustion to comp in the smokeI want and the fire effects. I hope it will look good though and not cheese. Well here are the two most recent versions and the ones I have been talking about.

Castigator Animation Tests

Well the model has been textured and rigged by moi, and as you can see below I have started the animation on it. I think I might have to adjust a few of the control curves as they begin to displace when the model rotates, I think I have them out of thier proper heirarchy so it should be just a small matter to fix. also I have a blocked in pass of the smoke particles, they will obviously become more smoke like the more I refine them, but as a first pass without really touching them at all I think its starting to work.
Well back to it.

Late night Folly

Hahaha, so it took me well over 30 tries to remember my login for my blog here, guess I should write it down or something, well I have more work to be posted but after a few tries the animation playblast just looked horrible. It looks great on the computer but when you upload it and link it from Youtube then it looks pretty crappy. I will have to find a way to get a better rendered copy of the test to post, I may have to wait till its done b4 I can post it, will have to see.
Till then. Have a good 1

Things are taking shape

Finally one of my very first models that I actually went back to and re-modelled to get the poly layout done properly is basically finished. All the modelling is mine, the initial UV layout is mine also, I had a friend(Jeongwon Cho) do the texturing and I believe he re did a bunch of the UV layouts. I have to admit though he did an incredible job, I have learned a whole ton for my new model about texturing from him and hopefully it will look half as good as the texture job he did for my tank. I threw in some quick lights for this post but I will improve the lighting for my reel.
Anyhow I will be back to my other model(see Occlussion image below) this comming week, I started re-modelling the arms and I have a quick start to its animation, most of the rig is done, I have the arm rig in just no controls for them, not hrd to add them in as I go though.
Well I'm off to bed have a good 1!!

Lethargy Lad

Well I have been busy trying to get employment and so far no luck. Unfortunately I have not heard back from the interview I had some time back but oh well, onwards and upwards right?

So here is a quick Occlussion of the character that I'm working on. It will eventually have arms but right now it still looks really cool. I may not add them but who knows I probably will.

Had an interview the other day for a large company near where I live, I feel it went well. They made sure that I wasn't attached to any other company and also kept asking wether or not I was interested in the show they were working on. "But of course" was my reply. Also I got a ton of workdone on one of my models last night, should have something to post soon. Also got to figure out how to link between YouTube and this blog so I can put my demo reel up.
Till then Ciao

Demo a go go

I have been editing my latest demo reel, I tell yea, if there is something that can go wrong in the whole animation thing its during the rendering demo reel compositing time. This has to be my 8th time doing this reel and again there is something wrong.
A few of the frames for some reason have had thier brightness/contrast adjusted without me doing it.
This I hope is the last time I have to do this. An interview is scheduled for tomorrow with a large Animation Company, I hopeI get the job.

Haha... Day 1

Well day one, and this is my first blog. You would think I'm living in the stone age but I just did not have enough time to start yet another new project. Well the reason for starting this blog is more for possible employers than to sit and rant about whatever ( however who knows what future events may bring about.) I have plenty of stuff to add here so lets hope I can keep things current and start posting my stuff. Till then.
