Armless Couple in Color

Final color for the armless couple...think I'm going to call this one Tea At Two.

Holga photos

First photos from the Holga came out pretty good! Night photography's going to be tricky...I think the Holga rocks the blue skies and colored flash indoors.
See more holga photos on my Flickr account! Go here!

Wolfboy and Bearded Lady

More Freak Show pieces...both watercolor and pen on watercolor paper. Wolfboy is actually quite tiny at 5x7, since I ran out of 9x12 paper >.< He also ended up more hip-dj than I had intended, but I think it works well. :)

Totally 'Armless

Here's what will eventually be a watercolor painting for an upcoming show about freaks and sideshow acts. If they let me in that is.

Three Dee

During this past week I decided I'm going to teach myself how to use Maya, since knowledge of a 3d program is pretty much mandatory if you want to land a job anywhere in the animation industry these days (sigh). So, after a few days of dabbling, swearing (why must there be so many hidden menus?!) and a lot of "oooh that's what that does", here's what I managed to slap together.

I'm rather proud of it, despite that it looks totally's my first real foray into the wide world of three dee! I managed to make my own texture map for the mushrooms...though you can't see most of it because of the deep shadows (I loooves me some high contrast lighting..its like working in charcoal!). And I managed to shove my own background in there too. The earthen surface was a texture jpg I got off, a great source for free textures!
In all in all, it's definately opened my eyes to creating things in 3D, though my heart will always belong to 2D! I'd forgotten how much fun it is to learn new stuff! Weee!
