Hey guys, yes I'm still ALIVE!!
I had a very busy year of studies, and very little time to make sculptures. Please excuse me.
I have posted my latest piece, which I made as a gift for my girlfriend on Valentine's Day.
I hope you'll like it.
I'm alive!!Hey guys,
I'm sorry for not being around dA at all lately. I'm really busy doing my rigging reel here at the VFS.
What is a rigger, you may ask? It's the techie guy who creates the animation controls on static characters so that they can be moved by an animator and thus brought to life, if done right.
Anyway, that's what I'm doing right now.
Hope everyone's having a good time!
Where have I been?Where have I been? I've been going to the VFS (Vancouver Film School, www.vfs.com) since October, and I've little or no time whatsoever to keep up with dA, unfortunately.
I think it's pretty clear I don't usually post in my dA journal.. I've set up a blog where I'll be posting updates at least once a week on how my demo reel is doing so far... you can find it here:
I'm doing a rigging reel.
For those who are not aware of CG 3D terminology, that's the word for doing character setups. A modeler gives a rigger a static model and the rigger makes it capable of moving and emoting in a fashion comfortable to the animator, who gets it next, and hopefully makes it come to life through good acting.
You're more than welcome to drop by and leave some constructive feedback on my work.
It's always appreciated.
I hope you're all having a good time, and my apologies for not keeping up with the comments and all that.
I now accept commissions..Hey everyone!! I have decided to accept commissions from now on.
The way it's gonna work for now is if you are serious about requesting a commissioned piece, leave me a note.
Prices will be affordable and may vary depending on factors such as the size of it, complexity of the matter at hand, or if the materials involved are rare or easy to get. (You'll have to pay for shipping and packaging too.) You can just ask me and I can try to give you an estimate (without the shipping costs, as I only find those out for sure once the sculpture is completed).
My specialty is metal sculptures, but I can use random materials if necessary or desired. (Check my gallery to get a feel for my style.) I can work from reference images, although they aren't a must. However, if you say... order a dragon sculpture, and I make one to the style of the LOTR black raiders' dragon things, and that wasn't what you wanted, it's your own fault for not giving me a pic so I know what style of dragon you were thinki
Added webcam picAs I pointed out in a previous journal post, it was my birthday last 22nd of August, and amongst other things, one of the presents I got was a webcam (which I had been wanting for some time).
So, I've put up a webcam pic on my profile, and I'll change it every once and then.
What do you think of the pic?
ps: this is the first time I publicly put up a pic of myself for the dA community. heh
Happy birthday to me!! :DHello everyone!!
Today, Monday 22nd of August 2005, I am finally 18 years old!!
Happy birthday, me!
An insight into my sculptural piecesHello everyone!
In my (currently) latest piece, "Singing In The Rain", I was asked a number of good questions regarding how I do these things, and somebody suggested I should make it a journal post, so here it goes.
that's really cool, well done... i was wondering, do you have to plan everything out before you do it since you're only using one piece of wire or do you just go in with a general concept and improvise along the way? and if you do improvise are there ever any times when you are stuck and have to make a cut?
...and I replied:
Firstly.. no, I never plan, ever. !
Before I start, I already know in my head how it's gonna be. I find it
Hello, I'm back!I stopped visiting dA some time ago, but I've returned.
I've had a very dramatic end of the year regarding my love-life, and I'm still recovering, but I'm feeling better as time passes.
I need to find a new girl. :/
ps: check out my latest deviations. I posted like four the other day.
Oh no, exams!Yes, that's right, exams! AARGH!
For this and next month I'll be having random exam days. My last exam is on June 11th.
I have submitted a couple new things lately. I hope you like them.
(I just resubmitted two deviations because I had submitted them at a time when most deviants were asleep and it did not get noticed in the "new deviations" window.)
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
