One for Long Island

Hey all! Been doing some more 3D this morning. I started with a bit of reference footage of throwing up the LIs. Using the footage, I came up with this:

Note: This is a Playblast render, not representative of the final render.

So from here, I'll be adding some more motion, as I've just done the key poses. Then I'll be cleaning it all up. 
After this one is finished, I'm thinking possibly a Broski Boot, then a Rough Ryder (separate clips). Give the "Beefy" model a KO vest, perhaps? Then, if I'm feeling brave, finish off with a Pop-Up Powerbomb?

This is all future, though. Let's go a step at a time.

Long Island Iced Z

So after the last post I loaded up Maya and had a mess around. I'll be doing it again but with the aim to render some cool stuff out that is wrestling related. Today I was messing about with Zack Ryder's finisher, the Rough Ryder.

I told Zack Ryder about this and he told me "Sick". I want to make a couple short animations and I'll send them on to him. But they'll have to be great! I'll keep it all updated on here.



It's been a while...

Yeah... So... Hi again! It's been a while, I know. And I've nothing to show for it, really except a couple sketches, and it's all my fault. You've read it before. I've been in a bit of a slump lately, not just creatively, but mentally, too. I've had some major shit on my plate to deal with and I'm slowly working my way through it all. It genuinely upsets me that I can't produce anything. It makes me think why did I bother getting a degree? I put my name forward for a legitimately scary job in animation for games. My head is all over right now. I hate my job, I hate my job. I hate my job, And that's normal for a job, so, you know... Deal with it.

So I'm still alive. I'm trying to make things, just the process is very slow because I'm going through a rough patch. But I'm still here!
