Abacks the green guy







This is Abacks the green guy. lol ! I didn't give the name, a friend did. I was wondering which angle to put on the top and decided to put this one at the end.

I was moving the vertices of a box for some reason and got this shape that gave me an idea to make a head. And well this is what I came up with at the end.

Here are the other two renders from two other angles.

Enjoy!!

Bored to death :-/

pair of shoes

Hia!

Been a bit busy these days ,with getting ready all the paperwork for university and all that. But got some time to finish the pair of shoes (I'm not very sure whether it is all finished though. The shadows looks not bad from far but if you take a closer look they aren't anywhere near impressive)

First day at university was not bad eh. But felt like a grade 1 student all over again. I mean everyone was nervous and hardly anyone spoke more than a few words or even smiled. Had that English placement test. Same old story with the English exam really.( 2 hours test, wrote in 1/2 an hour and slept the rest ) Just counting days until the academics start.
And yeah another good news, we are lucky enough to have 2 SLUGS during our course time!
:D Which is quite a rare chance.

Logo animation is coming to an end. Just clearing up small problems and mistakes.

Character rigging is going well. Boned the whole character and now creating IK chains.

Cleaned up the room and got rid of half the junk. But well I've kept the other half
:D You can't call all of it junk really. When you have lots of hobbies and interests you are bound to have lots of collections!

Found two antique Russian Zenit Cameras from around 1980 with all the lenses and a flasher. I know one is from 1980 because it has the logo of 1980 Moscow Summer Olympics on it.
Have to get them cleaned and working so I can learn some proper photography.
My dad is not going to like this though. Camera reels prices are quite high.

I'm trying to model my little sister's head using the reference photographs I took with 3Ds Max.I can tell you she liked the idea at the beginning and now she isn't liking it one little bit. All due to my modelling skills and all that. Yet I hope when I add some hair with Hair and Fur modifier and attached the ears it would look better than this.

head

I've to adjust the eye color too.

Hope you guys are doing well.

Apart from having both my FB account and the e-mail account connected to it being hacked( or what ever the term you use for that) ,
And all of the FB knowing my passwords (those who don't know me might think I'm loony but those who know knows what they means) I'm doing extremely well.
:)
Cheers!!

Solution

2 or 3 posts ago I mentioned a problem I was faced with when I was doing an animation.
What I wanted to do was give an animated opacity map to the particle system and a separate material to particles.Yet I didn't know how this could be done.

So I posted the question in Area , CGTalk and Max-Realms

If you go to the three links above you'll find 4 separate ways of doing this. And I won't be surprised if you have thousand more ways to do it. Anyway I've put this animation aside for a while and started the rigging tutorial from where I stopped.

Will post about it later.
cheers!

Paper plate


Hia! After a bit of a long time I'm posting a blog note.
I'm going to be short this time too because it is 3.30 am!

This paper plate is what I made today.
Enjoy!
Cheers!!

(OK I agree black isn't such a good choice of colour if you want the bumps in the plate visible)
