Since yesterday's BAAU meet at the Great Mall, I've been inspired to try out inking. I found my bottle of Yasutomo Sumi ink and put a nib in my pen and started inking away on some scratch paper last night. I was able to quickly get the hang of it and I liked the fact that I didn't have to press hard to make effective strokes. I guess at this point, I'm mostly teaching myself in addition to looking up tutorials on YouTube. I'm gonna play around with it some more and eventually ink a full drawing.
Tree by reivax
Tree
A tree for use in a video game. I made this in Maya and textured the leaves using Photoshop. While I couldn't figure how to make a good render, I'm still happy with the end result.

Trash can by reivax
Trash can
A low poly trash can I made in Maya and then textured using a program called dDo. I haven't used dDo before and even though I may have overdone it, the texture didn't come out too bad. This trash can is an object that you'd see in a first person shooter game.

So I went to the Recycle Bookstore on Tuesday when I looked in the comics section before walking over to the counter to pay for my books, I came across the Michael Dooney Sketchbook published by Tundra. I'm familiar with the artist due to his work on Ninja Turtles and Gizmo, so I thought I'd pick it since I hadn't seen it before nor did I know Tundra published artists' sketchbooks. The book has a lot of neat drawings and beautiful paintings. I think it will also help me out in both 2D and 3D work even though it doesn't go as in depth as other anatomy-type books do. Still, I'm glad I picked it up and it gives me an idea of what to expect when I actually get paid to design characters or what have you.

In terms of creativity, I'm mostly a do-it-yourselfer. I find myself enjoying the simple pleasures in life whenever possible and I like to make people laugh. Not only am I blessed with what I have, but I tend to have a positive outlook. Art is something I enjoy and I hope to make a living out of it some day. The thought of working for a big corporation and not doing what I wanna do disgusts me, though.

Current Residence: San Jose, CA
Favourite genre of music: Pretty much anything
Favourite photographer: Sure, whatever.
Favourite style of art: comic, surreal, and street art
Operating System: Windows 8
MP3 player of choice: iPod Nano
Skin of choice: My skin is just fine.
Favourite cartoon character: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Personal Quote: Life at best is bittersweet.
