Final Project Update

So 2 weeks ago I posted a bunch of stream of conscious  ideas of what to model, this semester seems to be super Borderlands-heavy with my fab pieces, as I decided to model the pocket watch of the game’s antagonist. Partially as a design challenge, since I’ve yet to do anything really detailed in this…

Co-Option Gif Collage

  My Fandom Mall Infiltration Assignment. I really thought Pier One would have more than just the Buddha. But I was out to other places too and tried to snap what I could. Most of it very much taking Hamsas/Paisley/Indigenous People themed for the “Quirky Bohemian Chic” look….

Week 5: Bar Redo and Final Sketches

Not much to say, redid my eridium bar as a slide bottom, had a had time closing the faces but I think it should be fine now. Ignore the extra top I saved for future iterations. Some super rough idealization sketches, I’m trying to commit by Wednesday and start the next set of sketches and…

Week 3: Saber Mount

Full disclosure: this week’s project was little rushed. I had measured the light saber diameter but forgot to take my caliper home to measure the rest. So I tried my best with a tailor’s tape, a metal ruler, and an online chart on screw size to get my size. And only a day to model,…

Fandom: Case Study

Fandom: Star Wars; Particularly a nice corner bases of the now Legends/Extended Universe series Republic Commando. Cohesion Tactics: Enforcing cultural or social norms, Punishing infractions Incident Summary: Gena and Izzy’s calling out on Dakka and Vik’s bigotry is faced with silence and/or antagonism by those who “support” Vik, claiming critical critique of the writing/fandom is reflective to inherent racism/misogyny…

Week Two: Eridium Bar Prop

So my enclosure is a prototype positive for a prop piece, testing out a magnet enclosure. So it’s to hold a light source and a battery, and that’s pretty much it. I might revisit it with other iterations in the future though before. Sketches: And here’s the models:

Fandom Week 2: Yarn Crawl

So this week’s assignment was to come into a new fandom that either ourselves and another classmate have never experienced and participate in. Diego and I wracked out brains a bit, since we had to limit to a certain day and time, and many of the meetups wee a little exclusive or things we knew….

Intro to 3D Printing: Revolve Tool

So needless to say I was a little frustrated getting into this coming from another program. Mostly at myself for mentally shifting back to Maya, but I think it’s just a matter of repetition on my end. My first foray into 3D modeling in Maya, circa 2011-12. Apropos, I figured the best way to get…

Fandom Timeline

Fandom Timeline; as told in my artwork. Chosen was non OC based pieces with the most prevalent artworks made that year. I know for a fact there should be Gundam Wing art for 2002-2003 and Tales of Symphonia art for 2004-2005, but I believe the scans were casualties of when my old external hard drive…
