i'm trying completely new things or thing i've not done in ages, as a break from all form of my normal digital art.
so far i've tried a Dragon Age: Origins character creator. its fun, but i really want one that is from the game Aion because when Mike was playing it, he asked me to help him create one. its got the best controls i've ever seen so far.
oblivion was ok. skyrim got better. some other games i dont remember the names, and didnt play, just make characters from Mike, well they were ok, some where crap. but Aion was what i look for in controls. you can change the size of random things like hand or feet size. but i love esp that is always looked stylized and painted, not realistic. i do not like too much realism.
anyway, from there i have tried to use a few programs to make my own 3D sculptures. the idea is "omg this would be the best artistic reff of all time!" well, its not as easy as all that. i'm not much good at 3D work. apart form chicken wire and paper mache. that i love to work in, but dont really feel like it now. all forms of real clay i've tried, i found hard, messy and just a huge mess of ugh.
zbrush: what the hell? i cant even... i dont know. its probably great for people who know what they are doing.
mudbox: ok, a bit easier and controls are move visible, but omg why is this so hard!!!!
Sculptris: ah this is more like it but why are there so little presets? still, much easier to use for an painter-like brain like mine.
3D is hard. how do you people do it? i knew i was bad at it since my 3D class
so its not too surprising.
to the people who have mice as pets....you can have all of mine. they live in the walls and make mouse holes in EVERYTHING. how is this fun?
i'm also crocheting fingerless gloves from really thin thread, not wool
not using any kind of guide to this, just making it up as i go. best way i do things.
and i'm baking and cooking a lot. if we didn't have to eat, man imagine all the extra time we would have!
commissions will continue, no worries. i just needed a break. i want to give myself time to miss it
and of course, letting your mind do all sorts of other things, does help the creative mind stay creative. same thing over and over again sort of kills me. (learning things about myself here)
oh, and thinking of starting up writing again. i've not written just for fun in such a long time.
so, what are you lot up to?
