I finally graduated and got home. Unfortunately it has been a bit hectic with moving back and getting a new car. Not to mention all the family get together for the 4th of July. Hopefully it is now all over so I can get back to getting some work done.

I got this idea for a simple piece that could show off some good lighting skills. Its just a pendulum from a clock chained to the ground, sort of a 'stopped time' concept. One of the first things besides sketching out the concepts that I needed to do was find a good tutorial for making chains. I did manage to find one and as I figured there is a very easy way of making them. The tutorial even shows how to rig them for easy posing. I am going to have to play around with the chains a bit to see what is the easiest way to pose them and wrap them around objects, but all and all it seems my scene is going to be simple to model. Its just the lighting that is going to really be difficult.

The tutorial is by Mike Nuts and can be found at
