Aftermath: Dreams of Earth

Still Giddy

by on Jul.07, 2009, under Aftermath: Dreams of Earth, ScreenCap Comics

Yeah, I’m still giddy with excitement on this project. It’s consuming me. I’m about half way through the first (thick) book I have, and I’m forcing myself to read it before I delve into the program itself so I will have a good understanding of how SketchUp works and where I need to go to find more info if I get stuck. I also need desperately to get back to making content for screencapcomics.com and that’s going to be a priority starting in about two weeks. Oh, the anguish of waiting!

Quick Update

by on Jun.12, 2009, under Aftermath: Dreams of Earth

Just a quick update to document what I’ve been doing.  Mostly just grabbing reference material off of the Internet, images that I will use for modelling and so forth.  Blender seems like it will do everything that I’m wanting it to do so I don’t think I will have the added expense of Maya, and Google offeres a student rate on SketchUp Pro, so I’m good there (except it’s only a one year license, but still, it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than the full license).

A new project

by on Jun.08, 2009, under Aftermath: Dreams of Earth

I’m embarking on a new project.  Well, actually I’m revising a project that I put on hold a while back because I wasn’t satisfied with the way it was coming out.  I’m still commited to telling the story of Aftermath, but I wasn’t satisfied with the artwork I was putting out.  My skills had atrophied from years and years of non-use, and I just don’t have the time (or rather, motivation) to hone them back.  I’ve always been interested in 3D modelling, so I decided to go that direction with it.  I’ve been looking and experimenting with various programs, and the ones I’m seriously looking at now are Daz Studio, Bryce, Blender and SketchUp.  I really like the way SketchUp works, and the raw way it looks with textures in place.  I’m still experimenting, and I’ve got some books on order to get started.  I’m bascially going to use this site as my journal documenting my progress, that way I can look back and keep a record of how things are going.  It will also keep me motivated to continue, I hope.

Just a few words…

by on Jan.08, 2008, under Aftermath: Dreams of Earth

No, I’m not neglecting anything, just busy working on the two new comics that I started;  Aftermath: Dreams of Earth and The Gawd Skwad.  One is something I’ve been itching to do for a while now, the other is something a friend and I started for fun and to see how many people we could piss off.  Other than that, somewhat looking forward to school starting next week, the job has been somewhat slow (thank goodness) and been hanging with the family.
