The most recent Project

Anyone who has ever owned a puppy knows the trials and tribulations involved. A couple years ago Sheldon ate my GURPS magic book. I’d been meaning to either buy a new one or fix it since then. This Wednesday, I got up off my lazy butt and did something about it. So here it is….. Da da dun!!!! The new revamped GIRPS MAGIC, Wee style!!

Mist Walker: Mists of War is up and running!

Book Cover

The book is not only done but now available on Amazon, iBooks and Nook. I should be in physical print by fall. Check back regularly for more details and the remainder of the series.

Follow the main character Rainfeather of Clan Blue Mountain as she is forced to help a group of suspicious elari who neither want nor asked for her assistance.

The group explores the meaning of reality together as they quickly learn that there is no such thing as the whole truth. The dark humor and underlying currents tell us a lot about each group member as they find that the mission that should have been fast and simple, rapidly grows beyond the scope that had been originally intended.


New Beginnings

Any of you reading may or may not know that I have been an artist off and on since I was a very small child. Some of my artwork is decent, while the rest of it is pretty much crap, as the portfolios to the left can attest. This week though I picked up a new hobby. Well, it isn’t entirely new, but hopefully this time it will be more successful, in either case.

The ZBrush program is massive and incredibly daunting, but as 3d programs, or art programs in general go, it is fairly well documented and user friendly. SO far I am having immense fun playing with it. I am only on day three, but I thought I would share today’s project with you. I made several error’s and some of them were utterly unrecoverable, but over all it isn’t all that bad for my first start to finish project in ZBrush. For any of you that know anything about art, ZBrush is a 2.5 to 3d art suite that offers a lot of flexibility and start to finish art and modeling work. While you still need an external rendering suite such as 3D Studio, it is none the less an amazingly powerful application. Oh and it was also used to build all of the characters and models you saw int eh movie Avatar.

Oh, and these are screen captures… I really haven’t figured out how to save the off or anything. For some reason they are a little grainy, *shrug* oh well.
