Website Updates

As you may know, I love updating my website...doing the odd tweak here and there and yes, once again I've updated my site! Mostly a rearrangement of the homepage but there's one or two new projects on there that haven't been on there previously:


Better yet, if you visit my site you may notice some transitions on there, visible mainly when resizing the website window. These were made using only CSS, and something I experimented with upon discovering it and decided I quite liked it on my website. My website is something I always look to keep updated and tweak here and there, a big reason is just because I enjoy doing so, but the other reason is that it's simply just good practice to keep your website updated.

2016

It's the end of the year which has a terrible habit of landing on my birthday. I've wrote this post in advance and scheduled it so I don't have to type all this on my birthday ;)

2016 has been deemed by many 'the worst year ever'. I've seen people sharing memes saying how 2016 has been rubbish for them. Back in January I said it was going to be my hardest year yet given it was my final year of uni, but it was going to be amazing afterwards. And it proved right.

I initially began typing this post as a huge essay on what I'd done through the year, but that would be tedious; I'm not one for enjoying essays that much after all (dissertation, anyone?).

2017

Another year has come to an end (and another birthday is fast approaching; I'll be 24 on NYE. I can feel the arthritis kicking in). I know I've been pretty neglectful of this blog as of late, but a lot has happened especially over these past few months. At least it meant I only had to look back a few posts to see what I wrote for my 2016 year end entry...

I said at the end of my 2016 blog post that I wasn't sure what lay ahead in 2017, and that I had no specific plans other than to work on my portfolio and see where it ends up after another 6 months. I don't think I could have guessed 2017 if I'd tried! In a similar fashion to the 2016 post, I'll sum it up very quickly in bullet points:

ZBrush

You may or may not have seen on my other social media channels that I have been very recently self-teaching myself ZBrush - so what is ZBrush? A 3d modelling program, where it's akin to modelling with clay rather than feeling like you're dealing with polys. It's used in the entertainment industry, and is great for creating high-detailed models. Here's some examples of ZBrush models you may recognise:




There's many more examples to be found here: http://pixologic.com/zbrush/industry/films-vfx/


I've been trying to learn it recently because it's not only another skill to add to my skill-set, but it's also very fun to do! You can block out shapes very quickly, and within an hour or 2 you have a really well detailed model. It feels more natural to model in than say 3DS Max might. But each program has its strengths and the industry always uses whatever program is best suitable for the job (as I am an Autodesk employee I feel like I should point out at this poi…
