Didn’t end up drawing anyone on the subway that day, but as I sat there staring into space an image came to my head and I thought to myself it wouldn’t hurt to pull out the good ol pen. It started out as a circle and a few boxes, but in the end I surprised myself at how precise the image in my head came alive to my paper. I guess the morning dread inspired me to give it more thought and feeling into it.
I did it again. I haven’t updated my animation in a while because I had the whole ‘ill upload it when I have this and that part done,’ mentality. One thing led to another and before I knew it, I was drowned in it.
Friday was our final and last critique for our final projects, and everyone did really awesome! My animation is more or less done, well… it’s far ahead from the video I last posted. For now, I’m currently fixing what I can of my animation before I put together my reel! Here’s just a screen shot, a ‘behind the scenes’ if you will. I’m super excited to see how it’ll look when it’s rendered. Will be posting demo reel on Monday, so don’t drift too far, wish me luck!
This is it! My final vfx that i’ve been working up to. Thank you to those who have been following me from the start, I certainly have come a long way from pen on paper. So I don’t have too much to say right now, but that i’m quite happy with the turn out.
Watch in full screen and HD for maximum entertainment
I’ll be creating a breakdown video (which are so much more fun to watch) showing the cg elements and the models much later on
This was a quick assignment we had to do for our lighting and rendering class. Many movies and games will do this with their scenes or objects to save time and all that fun stuff.
Basically, as opposed to creating a full 3D set, you take a photograph (or multiple ones) then create the 3d objects in the scene you choose to project onto and line them up accordingly to the photo and ‘project’ it onto it using certain shaders. From this you can move though the scene and create parallax within the image. Pretty awesome eh?
The only down fall is your limited to what you produce, in other words, if your resolution is too small it’ll become obvious it’s a photo if you get too close.
But, other than that, this was pretty darn neat.
Here's a quick post on our recent textures we added, the models are completed but we'll add some minor tweaking if necessary.

We were assigned to create our own Rube Goldberg machine using only dynamics in maya. For those who remember the game Mouse Trap that’s exactly what a Rube Goldberg machine looks like. Everything in this video is done with dynamics so there’s no animation. This is a first for me and was a ton of fun. Anyway, hope you guys enjoy it!
I improved a piano piece for Azterin for kicks, hope you enjoy it! I love, love, love playing piano because it can take me to distant lands and relaxes me so much. I apologize for the background talking, this was filmed at my college’s grand piano. It was made up on the spot so sadly I wont be able to replay most of what was recorded especially since I can’t read or write music. Not cool.
Here it is! Enjoy
I realized that all of these items were gifts from either my mother, brother, friends or cousins. What a nice loving family.
So this one’s really neat. His butt lights up a sort of batman style signal when you shine it onto a surface in the dark. But instead of a bat, it’s stitch.. Dun-na-naana-nana
I saw this at a local mini mart in Hong Kong a few years back. My brother saw me looking at it and the next thing I remember was him going up to the clerk and asking how much it was. He then bought it for me right away; it was really sweet of him.
I remember coming home one day and opening my bedroom door to see this on my bed. I picked it up right away and hugged it with a smile. I called my mom and thanked her telling her how much I loved it. I still sleep with it beside me to this day!
This was a gift from my friend’s little cousin, what a cutie he was.
This is probably the most recent gift and by recent I’m talking about 2 years ago. My mom surprised me with this stitch doll to celebrate my high school graduation, she’s honestly the best. He’s super soft and very well put together.
Hello fellow artists! Check out my fab friend’s artwork. It’s really something. He’s currently feturing a drawing I did of him, although i’m not sure what he might do with it..but we’ll just have to wait and see! I’ll update a new post when that time comes.
Awesome stuff Aaron. Show him your support by viewing and commenting!
