Hot in the City Tonight
It has begun. It is starting to get hot in the apartment. Elf needs drapes, badly. I think I may nail up some of the blankets I got from I got from the Chrishold Moving Day Giveaway Extravaganza. Although, on further consideration, those are afghans. Regardless, methinks the fans come out of storage tomorrow. Be warned, gamers, movie-watchers and other visitors, dress lightly and carry a big stick.
Weapons of Minor Destruction
I won this axe on eBay. In hindsight I paid $5 more than it’s worth to me including shipping but on the other hand, it’s a nice looking axe. I’ll be adding this to my collection of medieval weapons that I used for art reference. Recently I got a flail as well. The only real hard part about drawing an axe is the counter-flange on the opposite end of the blade. Drawing an axe like this is much more difficult than drawing a double-headed axe. Either way it’s nice to have an actual metal, life-size prop when working so you can get the reflections juuuuuuust right.
Emails of Interest II: The Spammening
I just checked out your site, your illustrations are amazing. I was just wondering if you would mind if i used some of your illustrations as references for 3d-models. I am still a novice when it comes to CG. Most of my attempted work is made for games and are very low on the polygonal scale. My personal website is: http://www.villaingames.com i know its not very functional right now but is is being revamped. You can see some of my past 3d model work on the forums of http://www.darkbasic.com my forum name is wbarrett 26. I would be using your illustrations to make some characters for a game. If i post any work on the forums i will of course place your website as the reference source, and always cite you in the credits of any work. Thank you.
