P.S. A little background story on why this release is needed can be found here: http://www.blendernation.com/2008/10/22/yo-frankie-delay/

P.P.S. God is good… He is always good, nomatter what you or I face…

P.P.P.S. Looking forward to doing some “personal filming” sometime… my own music, you name it – the whole she-bang… hopefully…

P.P.P.P.S. A friend of mine told me about Owl City, an unsigned music artist.  Well, I started listening to it today (once I remembered,) and, lo-and-behold, I liked it!  That artist’s work is now the official “focus for listening” for October 23, 2008… in other words, that is the music group I focused on listening to today (on Playlist.com.)  Check out some of their music here. Wow, so inspiring… I could do my own MUSIC!!!! WHOOT!!! … or, JOIN A GROUP, or START A GROUP, or… SOMETHING!!! … 🙂  Maybe I’m crazy, but I love the idea, wow… I want to start… start soon. 😉

Inspiring artwork

August 16, 2008

I have stumbled across some intriguing or otherwise inspring artwork.

For one, I wish to make note to an artist I had previously discovered: Mathias Pedersen, a young, Dutch digital artist.  You can find his website here: http://www.mathiaspedersen.com/home/.  But this time I came across some of his tutorials.  The most facinating of these tutorials is this one:

10 Tips while learning Blender 3D

What I’ll try to, is to give you some general tips you’ll be able to use to work your way up the ladder and become a better Blender artist. Some of these tips are composed primarily of common sense, so you might already have figured out much for yourself.

– [http://www.mathiaspedersen.com/resources/]

These rules can be applied to more areas of life than beginning to learn Blender: they can be applied to much of life.  Besides, now I have a good beginning spot to send eager Blender users ready to learn.  “Read this 10 step outline and get back to me when you are done!” This is a good resource!

Besides that I came across Chaperon Rouge, an animated short by four collaborating students from the French school Supinfocom Arles (made as their graduating movie.)  The style touches upon Final Fantasy and a tad little bit of Miyazaki.  I want to create some 3D films similiar to their style (though my characters may have a different look.)  They used (digital?) paintings and composited the character into them (for at least some of it.)  Bravo!

On a side note, (however, an important one,) this following video has great importance to me.

Don’t Give Up, You Are Loved
Performed by Josh Groban.

Thanks for listening and God bless!

May all our dreams come true… see you on the other side!

P.S. There are other films, etc., I could mention, but I will leave it at that for now.  Thank you, each and every artist out there: you, who have persevered to create what you believe is beautiful…
