The first thing I would like to do is point out an awesome novelty account on reddit called Renderpart. For the past 2 weeks this guy has been cranking out 2-5 models a day. From what I can tell there's no real rhyme or reason. He just makes these really quick renderings of parts of posts in /r/pics. It's really awesome that he's just doing this to improve his skills, and something that I could easily see myself doing in order to get a few extra models that I can use in my upcoming scene.
Speaking of my upcoming scene, let me show you how it's coming out!
It's just walls, windows, and doors but I am absolutely loving the way everything is looking. Things I've made before were in many cases great, but they never looked to me like places that could be real, this one does, since it is.
I finally got that background changed. It was a bit of an uphill battle, I had to figure out what the heck I did with a lot of things on blogger's template, but I won out in the end and everything looks great, I think it looks awesome!
As for the TV surprise that I've been hinting at I lent it to my friend!
Now my TV desk is completely empty, it feels like something is missing, but that's okay now I have another place to put things! Which is great because I have a lot of things to put in various places and was running out of places.
Catch-22-esque humor aside aside, I have now relieved myself of all major distractions in my life. Now I have no choice but to remain focused and make awesome things, or surf the web. Over the holidays and throughout this year I had started doing some exercises in improving my self control. I feel that I have been very successful and that my ability to resist temptations of distractions has greatly improved. So I'm feeling good about the next few months in regard to reaching my goals.
That's all for now!
