I’m working on a weapon for one of my characters from my online novel True Tales of the Soryan Order, and I started it as a vector from Adobe Illustrator. I thought I’d write this up because it took me a while to figure out a reliable method.
I’ve done a lot of developing with Joomla. I’ll tell you, I used to be really impressed and pro-Joomla when I started over 4 years ago, but the honeymoon is long since over. There’s a lot of issues here and from what I’ve seen in the 1.6 Beta, they aren’t addressed. They need to really […]
Here’s one I recently wrangled with while trying to get my novel site True Tales of the Soryan Order, built with Joomla, set up for RSS.
Hey everyone, time for another half-assed review. I finally got around to reading all three of these post-SIEGE Avengers launches and I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised at least once. I’ll start off with the main Avengers title:
I run this site using WordPress, but a lot of the other sites I develop are created with Joomla. Recently, I had a lot of trouble getting the thumbnail and meta-description from my sites to show up when I tried to share them on Facebook. Only the site name and the link to the article […]
I’ve been meaning to set this up for awhile but I never got around to it. I finally decided to automate my torrent downloading so I don’t have to stay up all night to get the night’s TV shows downloaded. To get this working you’ll need Automatic from coding curious (http://codingcurious.com/automatic/index.html), and of course a […]
Normally I have some kind of story behind the work I do, but this one just started with me playing around with the Greeble City Blocks available for sale on the Daz site.
Real quick one here tonight on a persistent UV Unwrap mistake I still see people asking about. Sometimes in Blender when you’re ready to do a UV Unwrap on an object, the preview in the UV/Image Editor doesn’t look right.
I’ve been working on another sword for one of my fantasy characters. It’s not finished yet because I ran into some issues of my own making. You’ve really got to be careful when you start out these models. Normally, when I’m drawing something I don’t plan out too much in advance. I know what it should […]
This is a character who has gone by many names – Photon, Pulsar, but most notably, her first code name was Captain Marvel. This character is not nearly as much of a hot mess as most of them.
This isn’t necessarily specific to Blender, but I mention it because it’s the program I’m using to create my models. In a previous article, I wrote about trying to have my sword model 3D printed at Shapeways.com. Long story short they would not do so because the model in question was a weapon and it […]
I posted a half-assed review of Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time: The Gathering Storm on my other site here: http://www.fantasybookbanner.com/reviews/45-fantasy-reviews/100-wheel-of-time-the-gathering-storm-book-12-half-ass-review-and-commentary.html This one is the 12th book in the ridiculously long series, and it isn’t done yet. Arrgh.
There’s a lot more exciting comics out there than Daredevil these days, and I only write this because after I read the latest issue I realized that I’m about to drop this one.
This is a piece I drew for really no reason at all using my Wacom tablet in Photoshop.
Another Black day, another Black superhero. This time we’ll focus on Marvel Comics The Black Panther.
Well in honor of Black History Month, I’ve decided to write a few articles on some of the Black Superheroes of comics history. Trust me, some of it is H.A.M. – HOT…ASS…MESS. Let’s start with one of the most prominent Black superheroes out there today – Luke Cage, Power Man. Yeah, I drew him in […]
I didn’t even know this book existed until I saw it in one of the weekly emails Daz sends out. Apparently this official guide was written last March (2009) and it covers DazStudio 2.3. Even back then I was probably a little beyond the basics of the book. I spent many frustrating hours in the […]
This is a pencil drawing I did recently of the character Elena from the CW TV series The Vampire Diaries. I dropped in the text and blood spatter in Photoshop. Honestly I never gave the show a chance because I thought it would be like Twilight, but this seems to be a lot more grown […]
Posted an update to my comic The Ever Zone: http://hypertransitory.com/the-ever-zone-3/
This piece is a shot of the main character in The Bill Collectors, named Jackknife Jenkins. The woman with him is Marie, another Bill Collector who is usually around when Jackknife needs someone to get his back.
