Creative update

While I am getting better at being creative every day, I’m still not so good with sharing the results. So here is a link to my album of sketches. I would like to say that I will be updating my blog daily with each new sketch or creative endeavor, but we all know that just isn’t going to happen.:)

Ann Charles: Jackrabbit Junction Mystery Series announces Book #4!

My favorite author just released book 4 in the Jackrabbit Junction Mystery series. I have already downloaded it and can’t wait to read it.

Quote from book:

“What’s up with you this morning? You’ve been acting all skittish and freaky-eyed since you came out of the library.”

“Something feels weird here today.”

“Have you considered that maybe you’re the one feeling weird today?”

“Listen, dear sister of mine, you’re supposed to be helping me keep an eye out for thugs and instead you’re spending all of your time pointing out my faults.”

“As your loving sister,” Claire started.

“Loving?” Ronnie let out a bark of laughter.

Claire continued, speaking louder over Ronnie’s sarcastic laughs, “It’s my job to be honest with you. So here’s a hard truth you need to swallow: You have not only moved into paranoia-ville, you’re running for mayor now.”

“It takes a paranoid nut to know one.”

~Ronnie and Claire

I can now draw a box

One of my goals this year is to conquer perspective drawing. I have already watched the perspective course at CGCookie and now I am working through the Cityscapes sketch workbook from 3DTotal.

And after 2 days of practice I can draw a box. Lol,  next lesson covers making the box look like a building.


New CGTrader Contest: First Model Challenge

CGTrader just launched a new monthly competition for starters in 3D industry called First Model Challenge. They want to encourage new people to start their 3D modelling careers, so they decided to organize this challenge – a first one of a kind for us as well – with 500 hours of rendering as a prize for the winner.

This is a fun way for people who are interested in the 3D world, but not yet fully in it to join in the fun. 

You can find more information (concrete prizes, concept, rules) here:
