Candidate Fan by picano
Candidate Fan
Not the most exciting render, but clothing is probably the most complicated thing for me to make. If you aren't following me elsewhere, you probably missed my progress updates on Tumblr and Twitter. The initial creation isn't all that bad, the texturing too, but... rigging just sucks. Various poses can make different parts of the body, sometimes other articles of clothing, poke through. It just takes a lot of trial and error to get things to a workable state --- and then there's no guarantee that another pose won't break things down the line!

Anyway, why clothing? I do want to make one of the girls from Candidate for Goddess --- but making both the character and the clothing tends to take more than my self-imposed weekly deadline. Normally I'll just take the full two weeks, tossing in a quick render to fulfill my quota in the mean time. But, this time I wanted to experiment --- see how hard it would be to prepare the outfit for 1 model and then adjust it to fit another down the line. (I figured this wouldn't be too hard --- all my character models are based off each other. Every time I re-use a character, I make sure to fix it up!)

As for what character I'm planning to model from Candidate for Goddess... I'm not actually sure. Although the repairer outfit here is clearly Kizna's, I actually prefer Ikhny --- well, did at least. It's been a long time since I watched all the way through, read too even. I love the story, but the fact it is incomplete continues to sting...

Fairly lazy render this week. Big surprise, I know. I made some fixes to Belle's model to bring her up to par with Irisu --- improved rigging, reflective eyes, the kind of awesome stuff you'll probably never notice looking at my work.

Anyway, I kind of waited for the last minute to decide what to render... and couldn't think of anything. Fortunately,:iconpapersak: came up with an idea --- and even drew a quick sketch! I didn't quite do it justice... but again, I did it kind of last minute.

Good news is, this was my first render on my "new" PC! It took a bit of work, apparently Blender doesn't play nicely with Remote Desktop so I had to download some other software. Rendered twice as many "cycles" in 1/10th the time it would have taken my laptop!

Another lazy render! Slacking off feels so good~ Well... actually it's been a fairly busy week. New project at work and they're really pushing for completion this year --- I'll be amazed if it happens; not that the project is hard, just that there are a lot of components that are interdependent and well... we're expected to complete stuff before necessary data is available.

Anyway... with Portal Lan Arcade gone, the weekly tournaments I attended are a bit up in the air --- so I'm not sure what days I'll actually art and play. But, not everything is bad... I snagged a new-used computer from their going-out-of-business sale. Since I can now play more games at full settings... I might just be able to make better renders faster. (Assuming I don't slack off in modelling / posing~)

Ghosts by picano
Ghosts
So... lazy render and lazy background that I roped :iconpapersak: into helping with. I had planned to just work all day Saturday... but my favorite gaming spot abruptly announced it was closing down --- as such, gathered with friends for one final Pokken Tournament tournament down there. Had lots of fun playing Pokken and Smash, but didn't get much 3D done...

Ended up making finishing touches on the models this afternoon (while papersak played Tokyo Mirage Sessions, even getting a couple closeups --- forcing me to tweak models even more). Half-hoping there isn't a 5th ghost in the final area(s)... but I love these things, so I wouldn't mind making another render or three~

Morning by picano

I wanted to make a simple render... so much for that. I decided to give Belle the particle-hair treatment, make some slight alterations to her model (teeth, chest, feet --- not enough to count as a new version, yet), and flesh out her room just a little bit more.

That said, finished the latest available (in English) Devil is a Part-timer book --- and so want to see more of it animated! But in order to both read (at a leisurely pace) and do the 3D... I got less sleep than normal and am probably sick. Boo.

Not gonna say much... since I never do anyway. Just filling space since I don't have a real update this week.

WOO! Nebraskon is over. Well, that's not the good news. The convention itself was the good news --- and maybe the sleep after. Anyway... no new content really, just putting up a game project from class as a placeholder.

Check out my previous game design class project, a classic game (Bomberman) remake!

I call it... Bomberman! Original, huh?

3D artworks look so cool, and you do a pretty darn nice job with them! I wish I knew how to render. Maybe someday.

Thanks! ^_^ I've been at it for 10 or so years now, got introduced to Blender by a friend before high school and later ran into a teacher who had a physical copy of the manual.

If you're interested in learning, I'd suggest trying it out and playing around a bit. It's a fairly steep learning curve --- and I still haven't explored every feature --- but it's been fun. I'd be more than happy to answer any questions you might have~

Oh, cool! I'm downloading it now. Thanks for the link! let's see what I can do with it. However, that part of it having an steep learning curve sounds intimidating, but I hope I can pull off something simple at the very least (or not, I actually have no idea what I'm getting into, haha!)
