tentang The SinX Modeling Progress 1

hm.. is it 'modeling' or 'modelling'?

anyway, have been working on 3D-ing the sketch i did. really slow i think. but i'm not too familiar with this workflow yet. but i think i'm starting to get a hold of the whole low-poly + digital sculpting thing. pretty fun

ok.. here's the sketch again:

here's the lowpoly basic model, excluding the head. im not too happy with it tho.

note that im trying this workflow where i sculpt the body parts separately which you can see from the checker-board unwrapped model that's missing some limbs. i just figured i need better memory management and doing thing will allow me to make more detailed model, considering im working with a 1GB RAM, 2.00GHz Intel Core.

here's the where im at..

(image rendered in Max btw).
i have sculpted the torso and arms, rendered the normal maps and combined them back in Max. it is working pretty well. im really excited to continue sculpting and start texturing. but im taking my time doing this.. better do it properly and perfect it over time than just doing it for the sake of having a finished product.

i'll continue scuplting the other parts and get back to the torso again. will add more details and fix some stuff. here's some things i wish to add and edit later.

tentang The SinX Sketch

i did this yesterday. a sketch of a sinX character from RO. yeah i love that game. and can't believe that that game is still going strong and heaps of players, probably not as many players as it used to, are still playing it. and the developer, gravity, is planning for the next expansion soon.

there'll be new jobs to play, which means heaps of new skills and guess what.. new mounts!

okay.. back to that sketch, maybe i'll play around with this design for a bit. 1 month.. maybe a model rendered on turntable? we'll see. kinda like the looks for now.

tentang Back From Break.. and Heavier!

hey hey i have been away from blogging for a real while huh? i was concentrating on other things for a few weeks in hopes that i could improve my life. hey.. being a blogger doesn't mean we can have no life and not try to improve right?

but yeah things don't always go as we have hoped and really liked

but getting over all those things, hey i'm back and will try to quickly pick up blogging where i left it. and with a brand new mission! i'll try to post something every 2 days. i know i have been lazy the few weeks before i went AWOL by posting vids after vids. the lack of original input from me was pretty obvious huh?

hence the long break i decided to take. it is very good to take a break once in a while. that's what i've been told anyway, the truth isn't necessarily be that way.

however, i am currently halfway in on my mission to GAIN weight. yes.. gain. last week i planned to gain 4kg in 2 weeks. and as of today i managed to gain 1kg. still in the IDEAL BMI category but oh man a little less and i'd be underweight. so yeah.. im not that kind of 'gainer'.. those i heard of on tv where they are scarily morbid-obese, and want to gain more.. and there are actually people who would support (by sponsoring food, money, etc) and watch them online.

the idea is somehow similar tu daredevil stunt seekers, u know like those jumping-over-burning-busses-on-a-flimsy-motorbike-that-if-you-fall-you-could-die things. however... it is to me closer to providing a suicidal self-mutilating person with their favourite tool to hurt (and basically kill) him/herself. that is sick. oh and to watch that on the internet is just so very wrong

but i know what is not wrong to watch online. pretty nerdy but i find it very cool. behold..
