Day52 sketching and WoW

More oinkyfroggy creations found their way onto the page - some are quite funny.Also some other sketches of various things, should scan one in and blow it up for inking I think. Perhaps the…


Day51 Jedi Colour

Did the full colour treatment on my Jedi sketch using the Wacom tablet - it is definately much easier than with the mouse! Tracing the sketch and getting the fluid transitions and shading is very…


Day50 Gmod

Showed some more of the gmod tech around - kids absolutely love it (hearing them laugh away is great fun). Started looking in GraysOnline for an external monitor and colour laser - very tempting.…


Day49 Gmod and Digital Modelling

Some more fun Gmod experimentation and testing of more structural pieces. Plus some more effort in using strings and forces - still a few interface things I havent got straight. I have still made…


Day48 Gmod demo

Showed Garry's Mod off to JC and he seemed to find the structural posibilities in the environment. We even made a very quick truss element and played around with seeing how some of the rules work.…


Day47 delving into the Last Stand

Watched the special features on the XMen3 DVD. Nothing very exciting or innovative really, but I did enjoy the Director's diary as he went through the various shooting phases etc. There isnt a nifty…


Day46 oinkfrogs and more

A bunch more oinkfrog logo sketches. Well they are more oinkfrog caricatures than logos now. The semi-robotic ones are super-fun to draw. Watched the first EP of the Thunderbirds today. It is quite…


Day45 Oinkfrog logos

Tried my hand at some Oinkfrog logo work - the right one hasnt hit the page yet, but its fun. SOme of the little half-frog-half-pigs are pretty cute too. Watched the doco on the Starwars Ep3 DVD - it…

More talk and thinking with Russell about HL2, UT2004 and the coming of UT2007 and other engines of merit.Game Dev Awards - Unreal3 wins the engine…


Day42 HL2 modding and future

Russell and I had a good talk about HL2, UT and other games and thier application to the kind of Architectural/Design work that he is into. Not only is the slightly older tech of things like UT2004…


Day41 Mod demo

Did a nice long demo of Garry's mod (and HL2) for PM and Deano. The main points were getting across the possibility of using it for a structures teaching purpose. The mod is truly amazing to watch in…


Day40 Mermaids, Sketchup and SL

Showed SL and Garry's Mod to Steve, he seemed much more enthused by HL2's possibilities, but hopefully he will have a look himself at SL as it was running pretty badly for me. Garry's Mod is truly…


Day39 SL and more

Another demo of SL, HL2, hammer and other bits again today. Some enthusiasm from some people about its potential. I am still mighty unconvinced, but time will tell. There is so much potential in the…


Day38 Sketches and the Incredibles

Watched The Incredibles on DVD - boy are those Pixar guys just amazing. There is some beautiful big stuff and then some inspired subtle work. I watched it through a second time listening to the…


Day37 Mermaiding

A bit of playing in photoshop and I think the images have some more depth of feeling now. The water ripple effect in the background and then overlayed over her as well gives a more etherial feel to…


Day36 Mermaid sketch colouring

Another colouring of an existing sketch, this time the mermaid head. It is a simple large areas of single colours piece, but it is pretty enough for me to be happy with how it went. I wanted to kep…


Day35 Outland and the priestess

Put my application in for the Master of Digital Media at COFA today. Another big step taken - it is just a pity that Nigel is leaving before I would get to see COFAland with him there. Did a slight…


Day34 Talks and Heroes

Had some good discussions about future planning in FBE's IT-centric programs. Ep2 of Heroes - truly awesome! I dont know where the whole or any of the parts are going and the curve-balls are coming…
