I don't know how many people know of the Pandora console, but it's nearing completion and will see shipment soon. The development team has been hard at work putting the console's OS together and held an open invitation for wallpaper submissions. OS-tans are quite common these days, so I thought I'd create one for wallpaper goodness. This image is the resulting concept.

It's an incomplete design, and I'm going to refine certain bits later. I belted this one out as quick as I could between work so there's a lot that could be changed. It's not as "moe" as per the usual OS-tan (or Console-tan) manner since I see Pandora as a more mature device than, say, an NDS or Wii.

I have a moe (pronounced "mo-eh" for those who don't know the term) version in mind, but no time to work on it now. It'll probably appear here when it gets made.

On a different note, I noticed this particular image was uploaded to another server (woohoo! first time ever! ... I think ^_^), which I was pretty happy about. The uploader didn't link back to the original forum post, my Picasa page, or my site, so I may start putting my page address on all my images again so people can find the source easier.

Felina Haynesworth Revisited

Here's something I cooked up over the weekend while I was thinking of new ideas. It's just a simple portrait-like sketch of Felina Haynesworth, an Unreal Tournament 2004 skin I released about 4 years ago. It's been a while since I put anything Felina-related up on the web, but I liked this sketch so I thought I'd show it. I have more, but for now this is the only one I'm willing to show. Maybe I'll put others up later. ;)

I found it interesting (and pretty awesome) that even after all these years, some people still have an interest in her. Some have asked if I'm planning on putting her into UT3. I looked over the character models that had been released thus far, and many are gorgeous. I mean really, really gorgeous. Felina in UT3 might be awesome, but I'm not sure yet if I'd be willing to invest the time necessary to make her, especially with the expectations that'll no doubt fall upon me with it. o_o

Any thoughts?

Fish render

While working on my demo reel I thought I'd render out a quick image of my progress on Fish. I couldn't think of a good name for him (I'll take suggestions), but right now the texture is temporary while I work on his animations.

There's still a lot of work to do on the shading. I'm not sure I'll be able to finish that AND render it quick enough, but I'm sure as heck gonna try. ;)

TFP news page changed to blog

Hey everyone! Finally got around to trying some blog software out, and looks like this is the one I'm gonna go with for the time being. Since I'm not hosting it on my site, the Blogger navbar is gonna have to be put up with (hope it's not a bother!). Feel free to comment as you please. :)

To the left, a quickie sketch I came up with tonight. Didn't take more than a few minutes, but it was a nice diversion for a short while. That said, it's back to work with me.
