I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. It's the first time it feels I managed to capture her face right.

That Star Wars CG movie apparently came out and sucks hard. Can we move on from nostalgia pop now? Or at least stop tossing Star Wars and Mario into everything.

I'm slacking. Or mostly I can't get the shit I want to post off my phone. Whoever decided USB was too easy and thus needed to make mini-USB needs a firm backhand to the temple.

Here's a pic of Aeronik's character I'm working on for fun. It combines two of my favorite loves: gorillas and red capes.

Done for CoS over at Eatpoo DrawMyCharacter. I'm not very satisfied with it but I'll post it anyways.

I'm going to try and post something to this journal everyday, whether it's something I make or something I found or something I learned that day.

I had a weird dream I was at school during some event and an ogre was helping me try and find my guitar I had left in some hallway.

Some random paints I found while cleaning up my hard drive

The new hulk movie looks generic as fuck. I mean it's probably going to be better than the last one, but you probably wouldn't have to try very hard either. I'm tired of the quick-fastword camera pan shot. It's tacky as fuck and anyone who uses it is fat whale dick. I'm also tired of retarded orchestra scores with a signing full chorus that are so over the top they sound like they're trying to force out an orgasim. I also have no idea why the hell I'm ranting about this. Maybe I'll shutup and post some art instead.

done for CTT

I seem to mess around with music more than painting anymore. Maybe it's because I'm doing graphic work and living in Photoshop all day.

I went to NYC last week on a sudden whim.

The plane ticket was expensive as shit. The flight was total hell and my baggage was lost for days. I barely slept. I ended up pissing off the person cool enough to let me crash at their place. My muscles are still misconfigured from sitting for 6 hours straight. And still I don't regret taking the trip at all.

Growing up your whole life hearing about this weird mysterious city called New York, seeing fake disasters and real disasters rocking it, and noticing all the crazy talent coming from it makes actually visiting it somewhat surreal. Like going into the television into another dimension. Everything is concrete, wet, stained, close, and incredibly well designed. Fond memories of riding the subway in the middle of the night.

People there surprisingly nicer than I expected, with the unspoken accepted rule that we all can be rude to each other and it's fine. You don't get pissed and I don't get pissed. I leave you to your own shit and you leave me to mine. And then the occasional New Yorkish warm personality which is so easy and comfortable to talk to. It almost reminded me of Burning Man in the sense of you could look as weird as you want and no one rags on your shit- if anything they expect it.

Tomorrow I start a job at Monolith doing User Interface design for their next project. I'm a little anxious as I don't know 100% what I'm being throw into, but I'm also a bit excited that I get to play around with graphic design and Flash animation again. Looking at my old Flash stuff I can't believe I ever abandoned it.

So I downloaded Second Life to see wtf all the hubbub is about. I also hear a competent 3D artist can make a killing by catering to the masses of this world.

Upon joining you're forced todo this multi part tutorial in which you can customize your character. I look around and see a bunch of generic Poser wannabe models in leisurewear, and..  cybergoths? Anyways, after I discovered you can take off your pants it was all over and I decided to make my character uncomfortable to look at.

My personal favorite is the butt freckles.

After a some 20 minutes of wandering from place to to place I soon became aware that Second Life is really god damn boring. It also reminded me of the scene in Futurama in which Fry is exposed to the modern internet for the first time, and in a Space Odyssey type fashion cries out "Oh my god... it's full of ads!"
Most of the places I randomly visited ended up being shopping malls which to buy more shit to customize your character and housing with- except these cost fake money which as far as I can tell costs REAL money unless you get a job inside Second Life. I guess some lady ended up becoming a millionaire from selling shit inside Second Life and now everyone else is doing it too.

Once in awhile there was something cool that someone built to look at, but fuck if I could find such things without randomly clicking on the map. So now I'm going to purposely find the worst and most horrible places to visit in Second Life. So far the king has been the "FREE PENIS" bin, in which you can have a virtual dongoid to attach to your character.
