circuit board animation

One of the first Flash animation I did. I can say that since there has been improvement and looking forward to uploading those animations.

I really like Adobe Flash for the 2D animation. Too bad Adobe hasn’t solved the security issues that have gotten pretty much banned on the web.

Fast trace tutorial

The Live Trace feature is fun and simple to use, at the same time it returns some very nice and easy to work vector shapes that can make for some nicely stylized art work.

Arachnohazard

This is the first epub and print book I have created.

Formatted using Adobe Indesign CS6. And added the illustration. Learning and getting comfortable with Indesign for this project most definitely kept me busy.
As well as getting the manuscript kindle and createspace ready. Quite a bit of fun however.

Some early 3D work

I love three dimensional media.

Be it regular Clay, polymers and carvings up to 3d software. I had dabbled with 3DsMax while in college. Along with Poser, and Bryce (boy does that date me).

But once I found Blender I fell in love. I love  you Blender! The interface is so much more friendly. Fast. Here are some early files
