Wink SMASH! Johann...evaporate?!

When you get a figure in just the right pose, they hold it for hours!
Unlike those puny "human" models...sheesh.

These two pictures were taken on Sunday night after I saw Hellboy II. My girlfriend and I were in Silver Snail after the movie and we were surprised to find that Wink and Johann were the best figures in the current series of Hellboy figures. I really, really hope that they do a second series that is made up of ALL of the cool monsters that are scattered throughout the film. To tell the truth, I wasn't really all that impressed with the Wink character in the film, but his figure is BOSS. The thing is like 8 inches tall! Johann was awesome in the film, and his figure is equally kickass. Just look at that ectoplasm!

I've been working 4 days a week full-time for the past while now, which hasn't left me very much time to work on stuff, hence the currently minimalistic demo mode that my website is in. I am working on a new demo though, and once it's finished the site is going to get a slick overhaul. I've got a really fun and (hopefully) engaging way to present this latest iteration to people. I'm really putting some thought into the presentation, but it's all hush-hush at the moment. I'm taking my time creating this demo so that I can really showcase ALL of my current abilities with Maya, as opposed to my current demo, which is very focused. I wanted to get the current demo out the door and into the hands/minds of people in the industry, so that at least they might remember my name come next time round. Although it was a bit rushed, I learned a lot about modeling from my last demo that I'm applying to my new demo. I'm going to get it right this time around and really show off what I can offer.

Aside from that, I've been really fortunate to have been trained on how to use a motion capture system, and also how to clean up captured data. Cleaning data is actually more fun than it might sound, as it's like a puzzle that changes all the time. And capturing the data is a laugh riot! I can't really say much more than that at the moment, but with any luck there will be developments in the near future.

There is other stuff that I'd like to chat about, but I've already made this post far too wordy. I think I need another blog to fill up with all of the goofy details of my life. At least that way people who just want to see cool art or pictures won't be bothered by all of this text! I'm hoping to get a laptop in the next few months and if that happens, I might end up writing more. We'll see!

Adios and arrivederci!
