I have been busy over the past week trying to get the hang of the Blender interface. Its been a little difficult being as it is so different then either 3DS Max or Maya. I keep hearing how great the interface is but I have to say at the moment I am still a bit skeptical.

Anyways I don't have much to update with so I figured I would post some links to the tutorials I have been using that seemed like the most help. This goes beyond the blender tutorials and into other programs as well.

Tin Scene

I put that tin in this scene instead of the snow globe, it makes a little more sense. And yes, the candle flames are just brush strokes done in photoshop. I think I need to learn how to make some convincing flames, I'll add that to my to do list.

I plan to spend all of tomorrow learning how to use Blender. I've practiced a little in it, but I think I really want to dive in and try to get the hang of that program.

A quick model of a tin on my desk. Had some issues unwrapping due to some bug in Max. I would try selecting faces but for some reason it wouldn't let me select them after the program had been open for 5 minuets.

I swear that program does this just to annoy me...maybe it's just the heat.


I haven't posted in a while due to the job search. I haven't received many new leads in the past few weeks so I have been scouring the internet in search of new opportunities. At some point I lost track of my creative side and stopped doing anything actually productive. Hopefully that should be done with and I hope to get back into Modeling and maybe even looking some more into After Effects, (working on that quick demo reel reminded me how much I like editing and working in that program.).

In the mean time I have finally broken down and decided to look for a normal job such as being a waitress or cashier. I need to get out some more and eventually my funds are going to dry up if I don't earn a paycheck.

It's kinda disappointing, but it shouldn't stop me from doing what I love.
