So craaaaaaazy right now

Is it me or does Obama look about 10 years older every time he makes the front page. More grey hairs, more wrinkles, droopier eyes. Where's that dancing, bright Obama I once knew. Dancing on Ellen. Charismatic smile. It's gone...under a cloud of ACTUAL PROBLEMS he has to fix. And fast!

...No actually I prefer to watch the Ellen clip

Lionel Messi ... in 3D

Well here he is, little Messi sculpt, plonked into an illustration. What a great tool Zbrush is for illustration work. Not to mention having a model there to pose for something else. In the end though it's about the same effort into a painting as much as it is in a sculpt? Pros and cons to everything as they say.

Testing Messi WIP

I think I'm getting over-excited by Buzz at the moment...What can it do... I wonder. It links with Twitter, but Buzz can't post to it. Buzz has nothing to do with Facebook. Although Hotmail apparently does. Blogger is practically Buzz, just smaller and I may add, slower. Youtube...well Youtube is everything, but then there's TwitVid which sorta does exactly the same.

It's aaaaaaaalll too overwhelming!!!

ZBrush 3.5 talks with Maya, not with Max. Good job I say. That's what you get for being shit. Ooooooh technology, so many possibilities, but how are we gonna use em? This iiiiiiis facinating...okay buzz update! Update my son!

Oil Painting stuff

Before I roll this one away, thought I may as well post, (what turned out to be) , a colour sketch done in a day of a beautiful figure in oil. I did this at a workshop with Maxwell Wilks - great Australian artist.

I keep walking up to it thinking I have to finish this, but alas, this will remain just as it is, until the next time I can whip out those oils and smell that lovely turps whiff. Or maybe I can scan it and finish it digitally. Who knows! More posts are on the way!
