Pixologic User Group Meeting – SF

Lectured
with Bay Raitt, Ken Brilliant, Taron and Zack Petroc at the second
Pixologic User Group Meeting in San Francisco. I had a great time.

"Meats
Meier started the evening off with a detailed walkthrough of how he
creates is signature wire-style artwork. Other topics covered included
how to use masking and deformations to convert primitives into complex
shapes, and creating multiple rendering passes in ZBrush for
compositing."

Orphaned

I was hired as a Technical Director at the Orphanage
in San Francisco, and am leaving Salt Lake City tomorrow morning. I was
somehow lucky enough to not only land a position with one of the
coolest VFX studios in the land, but also to be able to remain a
generalist in my work. I was scared that I would end up being forced
into specializing in something while the rest of the 3D world faded
from my brain. It will make it possible for me to not only continue
learning, but at a much faster rate. It will be interesting to me to
see how my style changes as I enter a new (more accepting and exciting)
environment, and work with talented artists every day…

I have a rented truck with my motorcycle and my computers in the back all ready to go.

Sorry, might not be able to get back to emails for a few weeks…..but really not all that sorry

 

thanks Luke O’Byrne and Jonathan Rothbart
