Here is yet another animation dredged up from an old backup. Not unlike “The Chair“, this animation was created for one of my high-school animation classes, but instead of being 3D rendered on the computer, it’s all stop-motion. Woo!
You may notice the website has now got a seasonal new look. Happy Halloween!
I’ve been very busy with work and various other projects, so I haven’t had much time to update my website as of late.
For my readers who happen to be interested in Python (and/or game development) I have posted a cool new snake game here on my website, so go take a look. Though not nearly as exciting, I have also added a small utility for creating/merging spritesheets as well.
The title of this post translated into kitten language is ‘meow meow meow’.
This is a short animation made for my highschool animation class several years ago. It probably predates anything else that I’ve got here on my website.
It was a lot of fun to do, and was one of the first times I used Character Studio for 3D Studio MAX. Good times.
The judging phase of Pyweek is over.
I’m happy to report that my team (ThreeLittlePygs) ended up in a 4-way tie for 4th place in overall average ratings (score of 3.4 / 5.0), as well as 4th place in Production values (score of 4.0 / 5.0)
Our game is called ‘Search for the Red Herring‘, so take a look if you’re curious.
I’m very happy with the results, and quite honestly wasn’t expecting to do so well. 😀 😀 It was great fun, and I encourage anyone interested in the rapid creation of games in a fun environment to participate in the next Pyweek!
Oh! I almost forgot… I now have all of the interesting art assets from the game available here on my website, so go take a look.
Cool Link of the Day:
Ryan Noble, a friend of mine, asked me to create a logo for his mission to beat a world record! This is the result.
I collaborated with the great Jeff Powers on this one. Vector art is fun!
EDIT: Just as an update, I figured I’d mention here that way2far.ca has changed their name. They are now A Noble Quest. Though that I do agree that the new name better reflects their venture, it consequently means that the logos that Jeff and I worked on are no longer of use. *sad panda face* Regardless of whether my logo is used or not, I applaud their efforts and wish them luck in their quest! 😀
