New Horizons!

Thought I would post up again,

I am getting ready to migrate my art (I make art?) over to a proper site... www.sharpenedpixel.com. It's still VERY work in progress and all, but I think it will be cool. I need a much more proper place to host my work, point to my tweets, post up other peoples tutorials, and just in general have an online presence. I have a few ideas of things I would like to a little more of...

1) I think I am ready to bring the insane world of Professor Zero to life, I pulled it out of my butt back in 2006 for 24 hour comics but it might be fun to actually work that out a little more. I figure a weekly strip there might be damn fun. Let's see what happens.

2) Actually start hosting up a lot of the crap I have done over the years, might be fun to smash it together and recontextualize it, we'll see how that goes.

3) The REALLY big one, I have been fortunate enough to have made some really amazing friends through the years, friends who are largely anonymous, despite all of there hard work. I think I am going to get them together and see if I can't make this a multiperson forum with some fairly regular posts by some talented folks. As I inevitably meet more people I will hopefully get to grow my Pantheon a bit, we'll just have to see how well it works out.


Need to update more...

This may be my last post before moving over to Wordpress... SharpenedPixel.com is on it's way...

For now Quick and Dirty Updates:

worth staring at:

Paul Pepera : This is what it means to truly nail Hard Surface Modeling, freaking awesome.

Cholesky showed me this: Paul Lasaine. Dropping science the way Gallileo dropped the orange (Get well MCA.)

Been spending too much time in After Effects of late, so the gorilla has been really great to follow, especially on Vimeo. Also thanks to Crayola for eternally screwing me up on Gray vs. Grey... DAMMIT.

Other Rambling...
Intuos 4 get! It's truly a fantastic input device, looks like I will only be using my mouse for games from now on. I think I would still basically prefer it to a Cintiq. Switched out my dusty old M$ keyboard for a Razer Lycosa. It got a really nice low profile typing action and some sweet rubber keys, it's actually pretty nice and for a "Gamer Keyboard" relatively unpretentious, sorry I don't need a 220-key keyboard, just a numpad for entering Alt+ key combo's for the ©,®,™ or alt+0169, alt+0174 and alt+0154 respectively. Also ümläüts, or if you prefer, diaresis, which sounds like a medical procedure. But if you are really hard up this is always just character map for those.

Here is some Art, just 30 minute doodles to get into a groove on the Intuous:

So I'll be getting some better things together shortly, much more to follow soon.
