ART: Amazing 2D CG Paintings

Today's post is in recognition of some amazing digital 2D work. Generally this is painted in a program such as Photoshop. While I  primarily choose 3D models to work with, I do recognize the talent involved in digital painting. Check these out, you'll be impressed.

ART: Weapon XI: Deadpool

Earlier yesterday I released my latest image of Marvel Comic's character Deadpool. I learned a lot in the process of creating this image, plus it was probably the best results I've gotten out of Zbrush and character modelling in general.

To top it all off I finally got another image into the CGSociety 3D Stills Gallery. It's been over a year since I've had an image showcased, so I'm pretty happy about that.

LIFE: The Two Most Important Days In Your Life

"The two most important days in your life are the day you were born, and the day you find out why" -Mark Twain.

“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.” – Vince Lombardi

--Too many people don't stop and think about things like this. I try to everyday, and while I feel some days are wasted, I try to push myself daily to achieve SOMETHING. When I don't do that, I feel bad about it (and rightly so)

You only live once, you have one life, you might as well use it.

ART: CGI Siggraph 2011 Blender Video

For being 100% free open source software, you have to admit that Blender3D has a lot to offer. Personally, it serves as the backbone for the vast majority of the artwork I do. Straight out of the box (or download) Blender offers capabilities such as animation, sculpting, UV mapping, video sequencing, image editing and much more with a sleek interface.

If you're interested check out the Blender 2011 Siggraph Reel. It's impressive to say the least.
Check it out in FULLSCREEN and HD!
