Greetings, friends and neighbors. Speaking of the animation that I mentioned last time around, I neglected to provide a link. Here it is:
It’s about six and a half minutes, which is (for my own YouTube habits) on the edge of being too long. But there it is. The title, by the way, is almost a pun.
I’ve continued to paint, with varying results, and am actually making progress learning Maya.
In the interest of crass concerns, I’ve added a PayPal link at the top of the page. So, if you have a couple of bucks…
The universe contains many fine people; while in the past I had my doubts, those doubts are put to rest. Not many, and certainly not enough, but they are there. If you’re reading this, you’re one of them!
I hope to update this more often, but, as we all know, the best-laid plans….
Since the death of my friend, Bobette Nourse, I’ve not felt the need to do anything at all…not just creative things, but anything and everything.
I uploaded the final chapter of “Hence” a day before she died….normally, this would be a post topic, but obviously some things are far more important. I will miss her profoundly for the rest of my life.
Still, to step down to the trivial, here’s the link to the last chapter of “Hence.” Enjoy. It’s over six minutes long, so I understand if that’s too long (it would be for me, so no shame).
See you next month, and thank you for stopping by,
Well, June had some things going on, none of them really interesting, though I did get some decent CGI work done. And that was really it. Found out my rent is going to greatly increase; not to worry, as soon as I can figure out how to put a PayPal button on the page, my legions of fans will no doubt spring to my aid.
Ha ha, just kidding. Except not about the rent, damn it.
Anyway, here’s a still from my latest video. Enjoy, and see you next month!
Wow, we’re almost at the end of April. And what have I been up to?
Well, nothing much. Trying to survive.
Anyway, I completed a video project. Here’s the link:
Hope you enjoy that; sorry if the preview image is a spoiler, but I’m new to this YouTube stuff. Let me know if you don’t enjoy it and I’ll try harder.
And here’s something that might possible come to something, should fate be kind. It’s just a preliminary image at this point…I don’t even have any actors for this!
(The red box is my “bounding box”, where things enter and exit the stage. So I can herd my actors accordingly.)
So that’s the state of things. As always, thanks for visiting, have fun, tip your waitress and I’ll see you all shortly…ish.
I’ve spent most of March quite ill, with a persistent cold that would not go away. Now, it seems to have largely departed, leaving aside some splitting headaches from what I assume is a sinus infection.
Anyway, I’ve not been idle, except for the past few days when the cold has laid me low. Here are some stills from some upcoming animation projects. (“Upcoming” being a very relative term.)
The first two are connected, the last is one I started because working on the first two was becoming difficult.
Anyway, thanks as always for stopping by, and I’ll see you in April.
Wow, I almost let February go by without a post! What a tragedy that would have been, and that’s no lie.
(Forgive the tone, I’ve been watching a lot of the old 80’s Ed Grimley cartoon*, and after a while it seeps into your blood. It’s like watching Betty Boop cartoons–watch more than five or six, and you start moving that way–you can’t just get up from a chair, you’ve got to syncopate yourself out of it. It’s the same with Ed, but with talking more than moving, which probably affects posting rather more than Betty, I must say.)
Anyway, I’ve been busy with stuff–finally posted “Part Two” of my animation project and have been working on “Part Three” (somewhat) diligently since then, with some extremely decent results, just hoping to finish before…you know.
No painting, at least so far. Tinnitus still is an issue, but then, it would be, wouldn’t it?
And I suppose that will suffice as a totally decent entry for the month–oh, and if that’s not an excuse we won’t be hearing again. Because we totally will.
Thanks for visiting, as always. See you in the future, which is already in progress!
*It was the 80’s. Everything was being made into a cartoon.
Greetings. I haven’t been doing any painting for weeks, now, and it seems unlikely I’ll resume doing so. Circumstances are boring, so instead here are some stills from another project I’m working on, this one another Flash animation story. Still in pretty rough form, but progressing okay. Enjoy, and I’ll see you next month.
