Oh my gooooooddd!!

Finally another post!! How long has it been? God. Felt like forever. Its not like I was lazy or anything.. well most of the time. Anyway, updates. Yes. New artwork on the way. Some training stuff. No full new pieces. No time. Busy busy busy bee. But here's something to tie you over. New animation!!! Attempted walk cycle using Toon Boom. The walks a little silly.. terkedek-kedek as the malay saying goes. But it was a good practice. Getting a better hold on the frame timing.

experimentasi minda kronik

Loosely translated as "Chronic Mental Experimentation".. whatever that means. Just messing around with the Photoshop, trying to do some perspective shots. First piece is just me messing around with the pen tool to draw some cartoonish buildings. The second piece follows the same mental thought process, but i use the building shot and flipped, skewed, stretched and meshed the to create the jelly looking castle thingy. Yes, I know the highlights are wacked. I didn't plan the lightsource beforehand. Typical.

Duration: 1hour for both

claire "cutmeimsoemoomgz" bennet CRDB

Did this for last years Pergh CRDB. I don't remember the exact date, but the battle was on Claire Bennet. Did use a reference, but again I couldnt recall where. Im assuming it was either from DA or Google. Apologize if this is your pose. Found alot of anatomical mistakes while I was coloring it. Mostly the neck and shoulder area.

Not quite dead yet..

Yes..tis I! As you can see, I'm still active in the art biz. Not as much, but I try. So here's something new. The piece it self is from an old sketch.. I think its in here somewhere. This piece is a lot of first for me. A) My first time doing an entire piece as a digital painting. B) My first time using textures (blasphemous.. I know right?) and C) My first time experimenting with colors. Coz really.. how many purple people do you know?

Medium: PS7
Duration: 2 hours ++

From strip to clip

Here's some 2D animation action from my last assignment. We were supposed to take an existing newspaper cartoon strip and turn it into an animation clip. I did Maro's Mamak Cyber from the Utusan newspaper. And yes.. that's my voice. No alterations needed.

What is up with Faizal??!!!

Quick blog update. Juuuuuusssttt finished my 3d stuff. Literally.. Like 10 minutes ago. After postponing doing it for the past few weeks. (Yes.. I am a lazy ass) But I can't post it now. I need to submit it in first. I'll probably post the video after 15th March.

Drawing wise, there are NO NEW DRAWINGS!! I is teh suxxors!! Long work hours really take a chunk out of me. It's not really long as it is arduous. (Bitch bitch bitch.. moan moan moan) It'll come to me though. Inspiration has not left me yet. Cross thy fingers.

Next post will probly be the t-shirt-thing-i-wanted-to-post-about-but-never-did. On a side note, i might take up sewing. What???!! Recently found this book about upcycling old raggity t-shirts. Seems simple and interesting enuff. And since all the young'ns are the scenester-diy type, this could probably be a way to make some decent change. So sewing..yes!!

I guess that's it for now. No-crapinus-unum!!!

Its a Chicken.. Its a Pigeon.. Im not sure!!

Embarrassingly this is my first attempt at 3d modeling. This was done for my 3d course assignment. We had to create/model a simple character and animate it for roughly 15 secs. As you can see, the chicken/pigeon/bird thing is simply done using basic shapes (spheres, cones, cylinders, etc). I suppose in the finished scene i'm just just gonna let 'im runaround like a crazed bird thing. But the assignment needed the character to interact with something/have other objects in the scene. So i'll probably get to that later. But this will be only a simple animation though. Admitedly i just do it to the filled requirements. I'll probablyl post more 3d stuff after i mastered 3d studio max. Here's hoping!!

Tool of choice: Anim8or v o.9.0
Timeline: Modeling - 3 hours learning + 1 hour modeling
Animating - ongoing
