I think it’s about time I did a render!

My own models aren’t ready yet, still, because I haven’t worked on them enough.  Hey, I’m honest, right? 

There’s a lot to learn about modelling and I was a little disappointed that I kept using all this fancypants software and still ended up going back to Hexagon.  Not because I don’t like Hexagon, on the contrary, but because I have this fancypants software and it’s just sitting and doing nothing!  I have learned a fair bit about all of it, and my faves are definitely Max and ZBrush so far.  And Hexagon.  If Hexagon was a girl, I’d kiss her.

I need to learn a bit about the MentalRay shaders before I render anything in Maya or Max though.  Everything I import comes out looking like it’s made of shiny glass.  Which is very nice if you want it to look like that, but I generally don’t! 

Going to play.

Okay my friend, your preaching to the choir. Just DO! (listen to me, I’ve done squat for days) If you have FUN or force the prg to do what you want you have done something. Render if you must, Model if you like, HEX, Maya whatever? It’s all good in my book.

You know what?  You’re right.

I set myself up to fail, saying I’d have a render in C4D by the end of November.  And Bigh set me up to fail wanting a render in Maya a month after I got that.

Fact is, I don’t do as much on the pc as people probably think, so things take longer than I usually expect them to.

If I achieve something today, then the day will be good.

Vacuuming the living room might have to do!

I tried vacuuming the living room yesterday.  Didn’t get it done because I don’t have a sucky vacuum.  Spent hours unclogging it,. then was too tired to use it.

Is it only me with a mind dirty enough to be laughing at these comments about vacuum cleaners?

I haven’t had a sucker and blower since… I’m actually not finishing that sentence or I’ll get clubbed by Pam!

I hope you understood that Kenmore is a brand, not a person, Barry.

Although it would be a perfect name for a British butler.

“Kenmore darling, be a dear and commence with the carpet sucking.”

“*sigh* It’s called vacuuming Ma’am”
