Holding back will allow her to stand out for the crowd and earn a higher status, recognized by others as unique and important."

Is conceited and is easily offended."

 And it's done!

Well, not DONE done, but as far as the ZSketching goes it's completely ready to go.
What comes next will be skin pattern details (all those scales!) which is due this Thrusday.

Yeeeah.

So enjoy the super awesome update!

I'll post an image of the actual mesh later... I can't get it to unify and bind with the armature at school because their computer's aren't powerful enough >:/

 Hahaha... ha. Wow. 

Me PRODUCTIVE?

Hell yeah you better believe it.

Now THAT'S what I'm talking about!

I worked 3 hours non-stop on this since my previous post and you can see what I difference it truly made. Now it actually looks like a raptor instead of weird circle blobs. Turns out I was using Zsketch correctly.... I just have too many details and made it over-complex. Luckily there's a way to optimize the Zsketch and get rid of the tubes that aren't necessary/visible, cutting the number of Zsheres from around 40,000 down to 15,000. That allows it to actually create a unified skin mesh from the Zsphere data (cpu intensive and something the school computers definitely can't do well).

Enjoy and look forward to more progress quite soon! I plan to be at the school most every day I can to work on this since the sculpt is due next week this time. Then I get to paint it all pretty.

Your Existing Situation

"Organized and detail-oriented, she has a very precise and methodical manner. She needs relationships which offer her understanding, respect, and approval."

Your Stress Sources

"Needs to meet people who have the same high principals and values as herself, but finds the need unfulfilled. Her need to feel dominate and superior leaves her feeling isolated and does not allow for her to give freely of himself.

"Believes her hopes and dreams are realistic and sticks to them stubbornly, even though circumstances are forcing her to compromise. Very precise in the qualities she seeks in a partner."

Her arrogance causes her to take offense quickly. Only those closest to her know deep down she is sensitive and sentimental.

Your Desired Objective

Auuugh

So after the, horrifying, overwhelmingly emotional turmoil that was my November (maybe I'll post something about it, but knowing me I'll never get around to it) I am finally back to give you my progress update on Theod. I hope to finish the head by today but here's yesterday's progress:



(Click to enlarge)

In this stage, I experimented with a tool called Zsketch, which basically a more dynamic version of Zspheres that can interact and smooth. However I rather suck at making things simple. It got me in trouble... so we'll have to see how this all goes. Maya is definitely out of the picture now... but I've decided that for my REAL Theod model (I suppose this is more like a test run) I'll be doing things differently. This'll just be done for the sake of a grade and completion rather than character accuracy. Yes, this is my awful perfectionism kicking in again.

I'll update later tonight with the hopefully finished head.

 Since I really didn't work on my model for the past two weeks, I dedicated the entire class period to fixing the hands and feet and get it ready for further editing in Maya. Once that's done, we're taking it back to Zbrush to turn into a sculpture by adding all the texture and finalizing details. The head's what's going to need the most work... that one is slightly intimating to get started with :/

Me? Posting?
wut ._.


I figured I'd get some more use out of this horridly forgotten blog of mine by posting progress on my next big school project: my 3D model of Theod, my raptor alien character. I'm really developing this character and his world now all thanks to the super enthusiasm of Sorin. So those of you who wish to rest assured that while my DA can go on dry streaks, I am always constantly doing SOMETHING. This is a good way to show that off. So stay tuned for more art updates on here. I'm trying to involve myself more with you guys.


Here's reference of his design so you can see what he'll eventually look like-





And here's progress as of Day 1: (click to enlarge)



Pretty spiffy right? :3
This is currently the extent of only using Zspheres, a unique modeling tool in the program we're learning: Zbrush.
Wanna see it in Zsphere mode?



Yup. Pretty funky.


Anyhow, I really can't wait to turn this sucker into a super spiffy, highly detailed model for my future animation projects that, according to Sorin, will blow James Cameron's Avatar out of the water XD I donno about being THAT good, but it does have a pretty damn kick-ass story... which shall be revealed one day.

For now, it's a super secret project. So shhhhh.... *runs away*

To show I'm not dead on here... This is hands down the most creative, crazy, and horrifically amusing hate comment I've gotten to date. It's burred waaay back in my messages so it was hard to come across but I found it again so I want to share it before I loose it again XD

Your Existing Situation

Works well with others. Needs personal relationships which are understanding and relatively conflict-free.

Your Stress Sources

"Needs to meet people who have the same high principals and values as herself, but finds the need unfulfilled. Her need to feel dominate and superior leaves her feeling isolated and does not allow for her to give freely of herself. She would like to surrender and let go, but sees that as a weakness she must not give in to. Holding back will allow her to stand out for the crowd and earn a higher status, recognized by others as unique and important."

Your Restrained Characteristics

Open and emotionally involved in relationships and easily finds satisfaction through sexual activity.
Feels as if too many walls and obstacles are standing in her way and that she is being forced to make compromises. She needs to put her own needs on hold for the time being.

Your Desired Objective

"Wants to make a good impression on others and be seen as a special individual, like no one else. she is constantly observing how others react to her and to make sure this is true. She knows how to effectively gain special recognition, by planning and scheming. She is draw to things which are beautiful and unique."

Your Actual Problem

"Needs to be viewed and respected as an outstanding individual, in order to build her self-esteem and self-worth. Resists any type of weakness and sets high standards for herself."

I love you color quiz... you always know  how to say it best.


Anyways HI and stuff! My spring break has been quite... I donno, normal? I came home to visit family on Sunday, talked for like an hour straight about finals week with my mom in the car. Monday I helped Sorin draw a giant-ass mural of the world in sidewalk chalk in from of my old high school all day. (It was about 16ft across) Tuesday I had an orthodontist checkup that lasted not even 5 minutes, so I went down to Jo~Anns to look for gray fleece I need for the Groudon costume. No luck so I went to Hancock Fabrics. Still no luck, but there was a glorious sale! 50% foam! So I bought $400 worth of it. Muahaha.

I went shopping for new clothes with my mom (Eddie Bauer ftw). Each night I watched a few episodes of Ginga Nagareboshi Gin with my brother Rey. *loves* Then went back up on Wednesday to broadcast my fursuit Ustream broadcasts Thursday and Friday. Draga came to be my special guest for those two sessions (got the digitigrade padding done, pictures uploaded tomorrow) and stayed an extra night so she could drive me down Saturday afternoon to spend "Easter" dinner with my family. I say "Easter" because my family is non-religious, but we're celebrating with extended family who is.

So summary: I didn't rest/sleep near as much as I wanted to. I didn't work on commissions as much as I wanted to. But I got a great amount of costume work done however and got to spend time with people I haven't seen in awhile. It's been pretty good. Now I've got tomorrow left when I hope to see my lifemate, Jack Cooper, as he is now visiting from Florida on his Spring Break. Then Monday I go back up to Denver with my sister to wait for early morning class to bring the start of the next quarter Tuesday. HOORAY FOR THAT *flees*

Yeah, not terribly interesting today. But at least it's happy things right?


Oh I almost forgot! Something exciting to add to this boring journal here: while Draga and I were driving up, I snapped a picture of a sweet license plate: "FLUXING".

Guess what the car was?

A freaking DELOREAN! I'll post pictures of it on my alternate blog site, CarStalkers.tumblr.com, soon :3



Peace yo!
-Riley
