as it turns out, I didn’t need to bring it into Maya afterall. secret project is go time, calculating printing cost now.

I just noticed that, while my Zbrush model has around 900k faces, the same file saved as a .ma and opened in Maya has over 14 million faces. Whaaaat?????

That feeling when Maya won’t let you do that very last step you have to do before sending something off to the 3D printer

Seeing a lot of posts floating around about working resolution on drawing. In case anyone was wondering, here is my process breakdown:

I sketch on a 1500x1500 300 DPI workspace. I am zoomed out to 66% or further out, and sketch basic shapes, lots of them. Gesture sketches and block-outs. Then, I grab the one I like, and I blow that sucker up fucking giant. I usually end up with something like 4-5k pixels tall or wide, still at 300 DPI. This makes for a decent enough print size, if I ever want to go that route with stuff. It’s nice to always have that option! And if I ever need to go bigger, I can push back the DPI and blow it up even further. I think it’s a bit of a loss if you zoom in to the characters’ faces and are struck with pixels…

Anyway, I saw a post talking about how it’s difficult to work on a large canvas when every stroke seems like it’s too large and uncontrollable in that space. 

ZOOM OUT

ZOOOOOOOOOOM OUUUUUT

If you find yourself stuck not getting the lines you want, or you’re feeling too claustrophobic working at 100%, zoom that shit out. Sketch on another layer, slop your brush around a little. It will help! Working this way will help you getting so attached to your lines, because Lines Worship is a malady. 

If you’re suuuper attached to something you drew really well that doesn’t fit with the overall image, try cutting it out and putting it on another layer you can hide to “save” it. For me, it’s a psychological trick that helps me stay away from Lines Worship.

Anonymous said: I'm so sorry your cat did that to you! But it does sound pretty epic.. If I may ask, how did your flatmates react?

Well, they were napping so I just stood there until they woke up and grinned at them and they just sort of blinked confusedly back. Ahh well.

This character is so goddamned cool. I have been staring at him for the last 20 minutes.
Actually, all this guy’s work is killer

Raiden (my tuxedo cat) has been doing so good on the leash, every time I take him out he’s so excited to trot around and sniff stuff. Today though, some guy came out to Dog Poo Hill with his young, very enthusiastic fluffy something or other (I don’t know what dogs are) and it came running at us, so I grabbed Raiden and held onto him pretty tight and he was very scared but ok for the first 10 seconds or so while the dog was happily bounding around us, its owner apologizing and very half-heartedly calling to it.

Then Raiden freaked the fuck out and ended up gouging up my shoulder and part of my face and the inside of my nose. I had to let him go and thankfully he ran right for our door, and I went after him to try and get to him before the happy dog could. I managed to get the dog to come and sit (something the owner couldn’t do apparently?????) and when I turned to do this I know he saw the two streaks of blood running down my face and the blossoming stain coming through the shoulder of my sweater. I hope he learned to use a fucking leash.

Anyway first thing I did after getting Raiden in was walk over and wait for my flatmates to notice me looking really badass ok

It was like being in an anime with the blood leaking through the clothes and everything dripping and hell yeah. Down side is there were literal chunks taken out of my arm and it hurt really damned bad for like 2 hours.

Gonna have some new cool scars lol.

Raiden lays on his back when he cleans his face so he keeps flopping back and forth and he’s really dumb
