2013 Racing Miku physics videoI know you wana see the shiny vid first so come back up when you're done! xP Ok so I rebuilt half the hair rig. Added more bones to it and tuned it some. What was happening was about midway down it seemed her hair was a little too ridged and not bendy enough. So I added more bones to let that happen. This is basically Misaki hair on crack. More bones and technically challenging physics all to keep her hair separated when it flys around but keep it some what grouped up. Before I re-built the original rig her hair was also flying around super wildly. May have looked cool for some serious head banging rock video but probably not what most of you have in mind.2013 Racing Miku physics video2 years ago in Personal More Like This
2nd Major thing was she had to have a arm operation/surgery. I noticed her elbows were too low on her arm and the only correct way to fix it was go all the way back to maya and fix it at the source. Then bring her arms back in to max then export from max in pmx then re-rig them. It ate up a few hours trust me but now I'm happy

5 LevelsI've spoken as guest speaker a number of times over the years (come visit me at SCAD Atlanta in January). While I'm not the best or most patient teacher, I think my strength is my pragmatic and blunt approach to the business side of comics. In order to help the students think of a "5 YEAR PLAN" (more on that in an upcoming post), I'll often break down the different page rate levels of comic book artists as a way to help analyze the playing field of our industry. If there's a ladder to success, what's wrong with defining each rung? I imagine such a breakdown helpful for moving up in most any industry, not just comics.5 Levels3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the 5 LEVELS of comic artists as I see them--NOT based on talent but on page rates, popularity, and the prestige of the titles the artist works on. You might define them differently or have more than just 5, but I find that less-is-more when it comes to people being able to retain information.

It will no longer be 50 points, it will be 100 to win!
I understand a lot of you are saying that this is too much to do for so small, well, all I have ATM is 100. So, I will give out the 100, to make it more fair, and not get such a small amount. Thanks everyone!!!
Oh and, sorry if I come off a little rude, but
Stop ranting, bros. It's annoying. It REALLY is.
it's 100 now, and PLEASE don't go on saying how that isn't enough either, that is literally ALL I have, and I made those points myself, by adoptables on another account of mine, and I'm taking my effort in getting those points, and giving them out. PLEASE be appreciative. It would mean a lot. (:

Miku Started, or should I say Start Your Engines?!I couldn't get a lot done because I started kinda late and I don't have the energy to stay up like a vampire today because I had to get up so early to return the rental truck and other things.. Anyways, I started on the head and quickly painted up some eye, eyebrow and eye lash textures. As you know its a first pass so they will probably be improved later when I really texture her.Miku Started, or should I say Start Your Engines?!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not too much to say. Her face felt wide to me because of how far apart her eyes are. I guess its just the artists style for 2013. Also I'm trying to bring all the illustrations together to do the model. So the highlights are off the illustration in my miku announcement journal post while the eyes are inspired by the little nendroid and image behind the 3d model in the screen shot.
On Photographing Robots in PublicSo apparently, the question on people's minds is: "When you take pictures of Transformers in public, how do people react??"On Photographing Robots in Public3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I cannot believe how many times I've been asked this question recently. I didn't realize this was such a hot topic, seriously. At first I tried answering people individually, but that got to be a bit of typing, so I thought I'd just put this journal together. So, by popular request, I give you people's reactions to me taking pictures of robots in public, whee!
1. People ignore me. Seriously, this is what happens about 95% of the time. People just act like I don't exist.
2. People look at me sideways. Honestly? I think most of these people are just curious about what I'm doing, but are too shy to ask.
3. People look freaked out, or even upset. This happens less often, but it does happen. I think people are just afraid of what they don't understand, and it ruffles their feathers that some weird girl is snapping pix of robots in the middle of

Before I start talking about this new feature, here are the pro and con for this feature.
1.enables sharing, discover more from different artist and from the same artist
2.Help promote your artworks when displayed, help promote other artist
1.Distracting from the deviation that you are viewing
2.Displays non related deviation or not up to standard deviation
3.Some deviants find it like ads. They want to be able to pick who they want to have featured with their deviation.
4.Takes longer to load
After considering all these pros and cons, honestly, I think this feature has potential. Deviantart is going in a good direction although they might not be implementing it the right way. Deviantart is about community of artists, their works ,

Rapunzel's Wig FAQ and an InterviewHey everyone!Rapunzel's Wig FAQ and an Interview3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a while since I last checked in. In fact, it's been so long that I just realised I never posted the cosplay interview I did here (and that was in January!). Japan Cinema invited me to chat to them for a while for their cosplay corner - if you're interested, you can read about it over here.
In other news, I have finally gotten around to doing a photoshoot for Rapunzel! Thank you so much to :iconstrawdoll: for being such an amazing photographer...you're so nice to me :'D And so, since I'm about to attack you all with photos, I figured it would be a great time to finally, finally post the FAQ I've been promising for her wig. Here we go!

Q of the Week:Difference of Steam/Diesel/CyberpunkWEEK 2Q of the Week:Difference of Steam/Diesel/Cyberpunk3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Every week I will be discussing a new question of the week about steampunk. This one is a day early (busy tomorrow).
Question: What is the difference between Steampunk, Dieselpunk, and Cyberpunk?
A: First, a small history lesson. Before the Victorian Era, James Watt came up with the designs for the steam engine that became prominent in the Industrial Revolution. The Industrial Revolution took place between the years 1750-1850 so before and during the Victorian Era (1837-1901). The Edwardian Era took place between the years 1901-1910 which then was followed by WWI, a time of peace, then WWII. The use of steam powered engines faded out during WWII due to the inefficiency of steam power.
Before WWII, experimentation on diesel fueled engines began, but there was not a high demand for it until after WWII. Petroleum usage had risen, so people were looking for an alternative to petroleum. Congrats, your minute history course is complete.
So what’s the diff

Tools of the TradeHey guys. I figured I'd go ahead and do a FAQ journal entry. Just a basic list of the tools I'm currently using for my marker work. I have a new tutorial for my markers that I'll post when I'm able to share the art I used for the progress shots. Feel free to fire away with any questions and hopefully, this can be a go to guide for basic info on my tools. I'm not going to talk about oil painting materials as I'm still figuring all that out and I doubt an answer I give today will hold up in the future.Tools of the Trade2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok Here goes...
Markers: Prismacolor Cool and French grey markers. I think "Copic" has become another word for "marker" these days, so it's assumed that I'm using Copics for all of my work, but I actually use Prismacolor for all of my figures and detail work and only use Copic markers for backgrounds. I use to use "Warm" greys but I like the sepia look of French more now. I also occasionally use Copic color markers when I'm doing a full color marker piece. Why do I like Prismacolor markers
