yet another gun

So I think I've gotten about as far
as I can get with these guns, I think it's time to move onto cars or jets or something now.

pHome.us

Going to take a break from the usual art posting to promote a website made by a couple people I know.

pHome.us is basically a CMS website that manages different bookmarks and keeps them in one place that you can go to at any time, as opposed to going to google on a vague word string every time you can't get to your bookmarks folder. Also, if you let it discover the announce URL, it'll even add a minimalistic ampersand next to the url title to tell you if they've updated their feeds since last time.

I've made it my homepage
on both my home computer and my artlab account. The good thing about pHome is that it lets you put your own CSS code to format it, and also there is a javascript string you can drag into your bookmark toolbar in mozilla, so whenever you go to a website you like, you just click the "Save to pHome.us" button on your toolbar and it brings up a popup that lets you select which group of links it goes to.

I really suggest everyone gets into this, it's an amazing website.

neither here nor there








So, I've got down 30 or so frames of AQN so far, it's not much but it's better than nothing. I modeled another gun, this time the MRC, which is a prototype that's featured in Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2.









There's a few reasons I like modeling guns: it's really easy to just start from a single block and keep extruding and edge-looping(I can proudly say almost this entire model was legitimately made from a single cube, including the handle), and also it's really satisfying to just pop it into zbrush and look at it on one of the default materials, because it looks remarkably similar to the shader in the Unreal3 engine.

In other news, I got my second framed/signed strip from Chris Onstad today. Watched Appleseed: Ex Machina, which I can proudly say has the best animation I've ever seen in a traditional anime out there. I haven't been into anime in a few years, but this was really good animation.


Also, taxes can go set themselves on fire.
