So I’ve done 2 new paintings and no good pictures of them but theyre all similar and here they are. I’m going to give the first one to my friend Justin because he liked it, for an undisclosed ammount and the second(which is slightly larger) to my friend allison who wanted the previous one, but it was too small for her. It’s really dark because I painted it at 1AM the other day.

Last couple of practices for The Outlaws have seen reporters(maybe only one, who knows) and a photographer from the Thousand Oaks Acorn about our club and it’s rising popularity(like 50 people, it’s pretty wild). Check it out and look for a really goofy picture of yours truly.

Hey there. It’s almost been 10 days. I gotta update this bad boy a bit more. Let’s see what is new…I have been working on Previs for the Ottoman, or I did last weekend. I did not this weekend. This weekend was spent cleaning/vaccumming my room which was desparately needed, College Football, Rugby Practice, and Football.

Speaking of Rugby, I have been moved to a new position now which is kind of exciting. Normally, I played prop, which for those of you who do not know is in the front row of the scrum. Now, being 6’3″ 240 pounds, I’m not really suited to be a prop. Props are usually shorter stalkier power players. So I have been moved to play Lock, which is the 2nd row of the scrum. Locks are usually taller. It should be interesting to see how it goes. I would like to maybe play Flanker and 8 man some day. We have some tall guys so we have plenty of Locks, so if I can get my endurance up I might be able to play those positions. Somehow playing on Sunday REALLY made me tired all day.

Also this week I bought Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. I loved the first Uncharted. It was a great game, and I was REALLY looking forward to this game. I bought it, and it was a dicey situation because in order to do well at A.M. I have to really focus on what I’m doing you know? That’s pretty much why I have stopped painting. So I tried to just squeeze in some time where I could. I’ve managed to beat the game already. It was good. I liked it. They could be movies(both Uncharted Games).

So today, since it’s Sunday and AM assignments are done on Sunday and you can’t really do too much until you get your feedback, It’s like free day to work on some Painting or video games or anything you know? So I beat uncharted 2 today, watched some football and managed to squeeze in a quick painting. Here it is:

And lastly, here’s where I am at with my AM assignment. I have next week to get it ready for it’s final the following week.

Ray is good at getting feedback quick. I have my critique already. His main suggestions were to get some more curve in the spine in a couple of places, simplify the end and get it ready for polishing. Gonna put some serious work in this week.

Also, be on the look out on Cineversity for some new tutorials from me including A No-Flip Knee rig, and a Bendy Leg Rig

So I’ve been working for Mike and the Ottoman doing a lot of Previs Stuff. We’ve managed to finish Act 1 save for some minor tweaks here and there. I enjoy doing the work because I get to do it at home, and I get paid. Freelancing is great, and Mike is very easy to work with so our business relationship is very pleasant and I really dig that. Mike has shown me a rough cut of the first Act. When He posts it for the Ottoman Group I’ll see if I can post it here.

On top of that, my life has been consisting of work. Work this week flew by due to things I’m not allowed to talk about. Also, I think that soon I will be getting back to some more rigging related tutorials on Cineversity since we have sort of run the table with R11.5 stuff.  Hopefully I will get working on some of that next week.

I’ve also managed to win another Weekly League title in Air Hockey. I think I hold the record for most League titles and Championships w00t w00t. In fact, today I managed to make another amazingly kickass throw. This one wasn’t quite as good as the one before, because the game wasn’t on the line, but it ROCKETED into the goal. It was beautiful. I love playing Air Hockey at work haha.

Lastly, we’ve OFFICIALLY began practices for the Ventura County Rugby Club. We had like 45 people on the first day and about 32 today. It was fun. If you’re interested in playing, check out The Ventura County Rugby Club Website for more information. I’m almost in shape! Yay!

Back to work on my homework I go!
