Scary huh? This is one of my custom 3D characters.

It’s so cool, they’re flying us out to Hollywood for some Sony studio tours and stuff, plus we get to see a live taping of “King of Queens.”

Here’s a quick little test to see if I could demonstrate how our espresso machine worked.

Hey Hon’, that’s me on TV!!!

… Or at least my voice.
I saw my animated short spoof on the Independent Film channel the other night.  It was weird.
At first when I heard myself, I cringed, and then … it got kinda OK.  Seconds later I was able to actually walk in and watch it with my wife (Guin,) I actually […]

This was the last painting I did, a few years back. It’s B.B. King. It measures […]

Pan’s Labyrinth - two wings up!!
Wednesday, February 7th, 2007

Time for a New 3D App
Wednesday, February 7th, 2007

Up to this point I’ve been using Cinema 4D, which I liked, to a degree. It’s great for modeling - that’s it. The renders are so so, but the time line and animation features are very cumbersome.
Cinema 4d came out with an update that was suppose to improve some of these features, but […]

It’s not the end of the World
Wednesday, February 7th, 2007

Here I was working on more action, faster shots and a few new techniques.
It’s set to Primus “My Name is Mud.”

It’s a large file, so you might have to replay it after its loaded.
