Usual guff , been working here in Vietnam, weathers been terrible and the month has finally finished and I got paid. Weeeee. Other news Im modelling when I have time, studying a new language in my breaks and just generally keeping to the grind stone and saving what I can for my pc rig and future plans.
Currently Im thinking of saving up for a Pc Rig with Vive on top. But just a few days ago Wacom announced their follow up to the companion 2 called the Wacom’s MobileStudio Pro, which whilst it costs a ungodly amount of cash, could be finally the tablet/pc combo I’ve been looking for. As my current trips to coffee shops carrying both my cintiq and laptop and 2 power bricks really is a enthusiasm sapper.
Wouldn’t mind buying one here but being that this countries tech is pretty far behind its more likely to be something I will end up buying once I end up in a different country like Taiwan or Japan (maybe Hong Kong?).
Other news is the idea I’ve had banding about with starting up a patreon, I’ve been showing some of my work around various Blender Discord forums and the common question is “do you stream?”. In the past I’ve been trying out streaming whist working but its been hit or miss due to crashes and loss of work, So I have been thinking maybe I should try for a record a-thon for those that are interested on patreon (basically I pre record it and then either chat or talking about stuff afterwards on chat). I haven’t activated my patreon yet as Im not sure yet if I have the time to handle one or if it would be worth it, although I have a couple of novel ideas to throw out there involving things other then modelling.
Current plans are to save up around $7000 which is a pretty high amount but necessary to cover my future plans. (Also saving in dollars now since my countries rulers are tanking the whole thing into the stone age).
Here is some stuff I’ve been working on: More Rouge the Bat stuff that I have been using to experiment more with Freestyle and cycles Amy Rose (Although I think Ill redo it since its not how I picture the characters much) A commission for a character based on some Fox and Hound sequel called Dixie Also experimenting with some new lighting tricks, working on trying to get muscle and fat physics to work right on a character without my intervention (cant so any of this yet, its all on paper at the moment), some shell designs for box characters I was going to work on but Zbrush just released a really good update for R4 so Im holding that off till its out. As I was writing this my windows just decided to have a hissy fit and fail on me so Ill have to post the images once I reinstall my windows. Be back later.
PC’s back online but its come with some hiccups so I still cant access certain features, will update when I can.
