Narcissist or Studious...Um, Student?




So for my machinima I'm going to be addressing one of my fave themes - my own damn self. In addition to capturing footage of my avatar in Second Life, I will also be using a "real" digital image of myself, manipulating it and compositing it with the regular machinima clips using both Adobe Photoshop and After Effects. I'm pretty much narrowing it down between the two bare-shouldered images of myself...I'm waffle-y, so the final image that makes it into the machinima's gonna be a real wild card.

The pic of me playing Warcraft is just to show you how utterly, desolately nerdy I am. Level 52! Woot!

Still Moving


I've been coloring and doing clean up a lot lately, and saved this image. It's an entire scene just before I've done the clean up/coloring process. What I love about it is seeing an entire action in one static image...now what art movement does that remind me of, I wonder?

Fan Art



Just in case you didn't know I was a dork...while World of Warcraft was having rolling restarts due to its new patches, I made this piece of fan art based on my tauren, Stirfry. I used my Wacom tablet, and Adobe Photoshop.

Woot!

T.E.D.D.Y.

This new software I found out about today got me really excited! Imagine drawing lines and constructing a 3D object using a Wacom tablet or a Cintiq! What utter fun. I love thinking about the possibilities here.



To download the software, you need a PC. Go here.

O.K....so they say T.E.D.D.Y. SOMETIMES works if you have a Mac and download all this other crappy software. If you're daring enough to try it, go here.

Second Life Scandal!





Today my avatar's about to be all scandalous...not only is she sporting strawberry undies, but she's all catgirled out (as seen in the final pic)! Saucy!

Melancholy

Being around people isn't the same as not being alone.

Useful Information: How to Pronounce Chuck Palahniuk's Last Name

From the master's lips comes this lovely pronounciation guide. (And yes, I've been mispronouncing it, too). God, he's an amazing author! I can't wait to sink my teeth into Rant.

In other news: my tauren hunter is now, officially, level forty. Bust out the balloons, people. Oh the sweet, sweet nerdiness of it all...
