Trying the Mind Map thingy

Trying this brain map thingy and figuring out which way to go to improve my skills. I know what I can do, but I need to know what I can do better. This hopefully helps me understand what I need to improve on.

This is a test to see if this works

Using this Post Blog Entry software in Ubuntu. Looks cool but lets if it works.

This is part of my grand plan to use linux. I did choose the easiest to install and use. Slowly it will grow.

The future has linux or variation of it in its horizon.

Blender Particle Test 02

Okay two testing today. 1) the particle function in blender 3d (which by the way is cool!!!) and 2) uploading videos in the blog (simple but the compression is disappointing).

One more coming up soon.

Rendering Balls

Rendering the classic balls to test lighting and reflection. Getting there ... getting there but still need quite a bit of figuring out with this one. Yafray with blender is the tool of choice for this one. Free and relatively simple way of reaching good quality work.

jagarts in blogger

Moved back to Blender3d, some parts of Shade just make it difficult for me to work on it. I had problems with some of blender's interface strategies before but with the growth of the software hopefully it has changed (or at least I have changed) making it easier to work with. The next few post will tell. First strategy is to learn the rendering capabilities so when I start modelling it would look good at the end of that cycle.

nothing happening

Wanted to post something for a while now but nothing is coming out of my mind and hands. Don't even know if i should take a photo, photoshop something or finally do some real 3d. Feel lost ... but then I should be used to that feeling by now.

Never did accept that I am good at any of the above.

Next week I will do it ... yes i will ... positive thinking do your magic.

Starting again

Trying to start doing 3D works again. Using a free copy of Shade 7LE from one of the magazines. Something simple and easy to make, which I think I did well with, lets hope i sustain this interest to a real great work.

Turned out simpler that I originally planned but hey it still looked good. Nothing elese could add to the image that could enhance it.

Started with just a clock and layered it as all my grudge style work but decided introducing strong bold colors. More graphic than usual but an interesting result (well for me at least :p )

Light 2 Dark

Trying to get back on the grove again. This is another play of pictures and finding more of a texture than an actual image.

Double Vision

A more graphic design exercise than digital illustration.
Broke my warm color infatuation :)

Another experiment from photoshop. To much earth tone images of late, have to try and move away from it soon.

Trying out a new technique I just learned.
Building up images with stamp versions of photos.
