Speed Painting

Haven't posted in awhile because I've been busy with school, but I've been accepted into TTTC (Think Tank Training Centre), just mailed in the $1,500 seat deposit today. There's another $28,900 left to pay, woo!! I haven't done much art (no time) besides playing around on Facebook Graffiti, so I'll just post the Graffiti videos.

16 more school days until graduation :)


I made a box!

Yes, well Gabe came over and we worked on some tiling/texturing in Photoshop, and translating it to 3DS Max. It looks pretty crappy, but it's the first one I ever did haha! And yes, it's just rocks. Exciting, I know. Not to mention, this rocky colour and the ugly interface for 3ds sure matches my site nicely.

Then I made it into an ugly, ugly cube. Yay! Then we ran out of time to do the sphere, or any other stuff with it. But! I got Ableton Live 8 from Gabe now, haven't had time to play with it yet but looking forward to it soon :D

Anyways, I've also been talking to Think Tank about my classes and financial situation, they suggested starting in the February term so I have more time to pick up these basics, and maybe cut out some of the costs. I was told the competition for October is really high, and as there was only 2-3 spots left when I got my package in, it might be better to apply to February also. So I applied for February just in case. I'll update when I know what's happening!
