Christmastime

December 22, 2008

It is Christmastime.  You think of snow, and bright, cheerful mornings that you can sleep in on as long as you want, and a cup of coffee waiting for you downstairs.  After all, it’s Christmastime.

Success lies behind you: six months of accomplishments, pushes, and failures.  But that’s OK, you’re making it.  The key is to never give up.

Anyhow, onto the rest of the post…

Sorry for the lack of posting here on Minosa Films.  To make up for the delinquency, here’s my first post of many (at least I hope so.)  Let’s say I’ll try to write 1 post a day, till New Years (that’s 2009.)

To catch up, here’s what I just finished working on today: my entry for the BlenderArtists Weekend Challenge #316. The theme was “The Toymaker.”  I started on December 19, 08, and posted my entry some 15 minutes prior the deadline (December 22, 08, at 1200.)  Hope you enjoy!

My use of the SSS (SubSurface Scattering) messed up his skin.  The poor ear and hand modeling is sad, but I really like the hat.  And the face turned out to have quite a bit of character.

I prepared the windows in Blender to show off some different features of the Toy Maker.  Notice the awkward teeth?  🙂

Like the caption says, that hat rocks.  Do I get one for Christmas?!

If you would like to see other entries and vote on who the winner should be, check out the poll thread for the challenge on Blender Artists!  (I voted for “Evil Toymaker” by fly.)

Now I better wrap things up for the evening and leave some news to report on for the next few days.  Oh, and I need to rustle up a report for BlenderNation.com

Anyhow, God bless and goodnight!

The calm before the storm – or a passing breeze

June 14, 2008

In the throes of today and mystery of tomorrow, I labor to engineer the beginning of a new day.

I am sorry for my neglect of posting, I have been busy, as the previous sentence implies.  I hope to pursue filming soon – but there are a few obligations and requirements I need to get done first – an unfinished project, something due soon, et cetera.

So, I am sorry, and I am looking forward to the days ahead (and wishing they be bright,) but as each day passes life seems to run along the river to a watershed – and who knows what happens then.

But I wish you all the best, and hope to spend some days in the near future filming our infinite dreams!

Most respectfully,

-B

P.S. And as for the title of this post – well, I’ll let you figure that one out.
