chiisana inori

I wish and wish...

So I wanted to draw a seal (because I love them 8D) and I ended up with this... hah. XD; Life would be nice if we all had falling stars to wish upon. Haven't been feeling so great but still plowing through somehow.

Aqueducts yey!

Finally finished up this project. Many thanks to Hieu for modeling it for me and attempting to make sense of my own ramblings when I couldn't and Rob Showalter for giving amazingly turbo helpful critiques. haha

Demo reel has been updated again and website will be undergoing a new layout change pretty soon.

Off to SIGGRAPH 2011 in a week~~ :D

I'm not dead I swear. Here's more work in progress:

This sample only has basic colormaps, wip normal maps and no lighting yet. There will be colored lights in there soon! XD

This was inspired by a scene from this odd epic-classical dream I had. The turbomazing Hieu Nguyen agreed to model my idea for me (cause he's an amazing modeler!) and now I'm working on the textures, lighting and post. :) Linear workflow ftw~ More to come soon!

Help Japan~

Quick Hetalia doodle~♥

"the world is with you 世界が君と一緒にいるよ"
きみでいて ぶじでいて by Yoko Kanno

I'm sure everyone has heard the news about Japan by now. I hope that everyone can find it in their hearts to set aside our differences and do our best to help out a country in dire need of help. If you were in such a situation, I'm sure you would really appreciate any sort of help you can get. Say what you want about anime or manga, but this is my childhood and my daily inspiration and I'm proud of it! Japanese artists (visual and musical) have helped me through my roughest times and I hope that every one can find it in their hearts to help them through theirs.
