This will be a short one. I just wanted to let you know that I swapped out the crummy Youtube player to the right for a better quality Vimeo embed. The reel is in HD and can be viewed in HD on the Vimeo site.
Also, if anyone is confused, the thumbnail images at the top of this page link to my gallery. feel free to click through!

So, I did a bit of a redesign of my character for my short. The original character wasn't real practical for rendering unless I have a render farm, which I don't. And, to access a render farm, it would cost more money than I can really justify right now.
This version works much better since it's not rendering hair and a mess of different skin shaders. I also managed to build myself a new workstation which is significantly better for this work than my iMac is. A mac and a PC sitting next to each other on the same desk? Blasphemy!

Fear not, for I'm still around. There have been a number of factors as to why this blog has sat idle for so long. First and foremost being that I completely forgot that I had this. Otherwise I have been busy working on a few projects.
In other news, I realized that my demo reel is drastically out of date. I know I can do a lot better than the stuff that's on my reel now, and coupled with the fact that most of what I worked on is still held under NDA's, I decided to start over almost from scratch. My new reel should be posted tomorrow!
