I’ve been so busy at work, with Kai and Amanda leaving, and other projects that I never got to post any Pics from my trip to New York City. I had a blast. I loved it there. CCW was pretty good too. Anyway, here’s some choice pics from the trip.

In addition to CCW, I also had a blast at SpiNYC or the MAXON Mixer. Totally cool place. I also got to meet Mike Stamm, head of The Ottoman Project(www.the-ottoman.com/blog) face to face which was nice. Wish I had more time to hang out and chat with Mike who’s a great guy.

Speaking of the Ottoman, I’ve gotten in an insane rigging mode for the Ottoman the last 2 weeks. When Mike mentioned it took almost half a year to Rig The Ottoman Character, I was baffled, because I know it doesn’t take me that long to rig. But you know what? The Ottoman rig was a serious learning project that took a lot of time to solve particular problems.

Now that those problems have been solved, I pretty much said I could rig the remaining 3 main characters in 1-2 days each. I’m happy to report that The Rider was done over the course of 2 days, the Wife in one, and I’ve spent about 5 hours on The Son rigs. The Wife and Rider will need more weighting focus, but the rigs are ready. The Son needs a few things in the Arms, then Hand Rigs, Mirror, and auto-weighting. Then all primary character rigging is essentially done. Exciting!

I plan on finishing the Son tomorrow, but I might have a Rugby Tournament in Santa Barbara so it could put a hinder on that…

OK, it’s about 2:50 AM I should go to bed. Be on the look out for some interesting Python experiments. I’ve been learning Python in CINEMA 4D like a madman and coming up with some cool stuff.
