havent really been too active in the C&C world, but this is awesome regardless


no WIPs over the weekend, was a bit busy, i have been subtly tweaking things here and there when i find the time, but not much improvement at all. Theres some personal battles here with what to do with some scenes. Such as pose holds.

When i do them, im near perfectly still, when i see it in the game, it looks horrible. Improvising some movements just looks gross so, i got to figure something out soon or im going to go nuts. :s

improved capture, this time with EYES! and Facial Expressions!

So far, this is a custom character, with custom textures (his shirt says "Gary" btw) that i painted some modifications on (i painted the facial hair :p).
Hes a custom build essentially, and this is him speaking the line hes going to speak.

Next up i animate the body gestures synching up to this line :) Basiaclly, the fun part!

This was captured directly in the Choreography Tool btw, hence why the audios choppy on capture.

Theres a particular "sh" phonetic i dont much like, ill put it on my list of things to fix during the polish phase :)

its pretty sweet, now i jsut gotta get this damne duniversal remote powered up via some sweet sweet AAA action in order to get the Input button to work to enter AV cable display mode :p

aside form the living arranges are actually pretty fucking sweet, theres not much more i can really say other than: YES! Peace and Quiet!

im about to play some S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear SKy when i get home, but first i gotta lay down some carpet :)

more awesome shit while commuting

I ran over a bird today in kelowna.

But i didn't.

confused? So was i.

Driving down Harvey Ave, there was a bird on the road, who didn't move by the time my car reached it, despite me honking. Curious on the health of the creature, i looked in my rear view mirror.
The bird was fine. Even though my muffle is slightly dangling from my manifold, the bird was still alive.
Until 5 second later, as a truck was following me, but that's where i saw the magic happen: The bird ducked as it tried to get something off the road, effectively making our cars too tall to hit it.

Brave little shit.

NWN2 Playtime

Well it appears me and roommate Ben will finally get some time to play a few hours of Neverwinter Nights 2, its only taken about a frigging WEEK to setup, including all the Vista specific fixes and malarkey. Now we successfully setup an internet based game the other night before being herded out of the house, so this time were actually going to play.

unless the story sequences are so boring we logout :p

The Office

started watching the Office again, i believe im in the middle of Season 2 or something. You know i actually didn't like the entirety of season 1 and the beginnings of season 2 were just boring.
But man, haha, ever since the Halloween episode, true colors are showing and im beginning to see why this is a liked show :)

man all the weird stuff you see

saw a dog walking itself today at an intersection. It was rather interesting. No people were around him, he was totally by himself. He waited at an intersection until the signal came up that the crosswalk was safe, he then walked across the intersection and proceeded on his merry way down the road.

and with that, check this out

ugh damn....

While looking a TV in the classifides section of the paper for the basement suite ill be renting out, i happened ot stumble across an ad, the ad sume dup said
"German Shepherd 8wk old pups, $300/each" with contact information.

*big sigh*.......... its the dog i want, its the age i wanted my pet to be at, and at a price i can afford, and in an area i dont have to drive very far to pick up the puppy, the only problem with the deal is: i was rejected to having a pet in the new place....

goddamnit. Excuse me while i go feel bummed out somewhere else >_>

The time approaches

Its almost here, its almost time, its the 10th, meaning officially 4 more days until i give up the key to my existing room.
And i move into my new basement suite.

its going to be interesting, not having friends around at any given time, but then, that may be a blessing in disguise. This'll force me to get a life outside of the house if i wish to remain sane, and for the days where i want to be left alone, its totally plausible :)

im stoked!

Blah its been 2 flogging weeks?!

My oh my time flies by when your busy as all hell.

hats been up with me? For anyone who reads this... lol

The deal is sealed, i get to spend my Sunday on the 14th Moving to ym new place with the aid of my mother, my little brother Stephen, and Jami. In the mean time my rooms become a giant mess as i find terribly little motivation to try and maintain with my last few days left at the house. Seriously, only 9 more days, and im super frigging stoked!

Ive been visiting DeviantArt lately with an unhealthy obsession, but ive managed to do something while doing so. Ive managed to get hired for the *Armed-Anthros club as a Reforming and PR Director, to try and bring the dying club back from the dead. Its amazing what a little portfolio can do (*maggot-corps anyone ;]). I havent done much with the club at press time besides write alot in my notebook for potential changes and future activities, but i have a good feeling about this one, and my only credential for getting hired is that they should see an activity increase, as long as more than 2 people partake in the next contest, ive done my job successfully :)

Speaking of DA, im attending this months Kelowna DeviantArtists DevMeet, apparently theres Lazer tag and hanging out involved haha im pretty stoked to meet some new people!

I dont have much else to say other than check out these sweet YouTUbe Vids, this time with a much overdue Dark Knight theme to it.
