Here is my character FINALLY RIGGED! I'm so proud too. He'll be ready to animate soon! But first more paint weight adjustments and blend shapes!

I've done some new CGI stuff in Maya this week, but unfortunately for people viewing this site, it's just paint weights (the stuff we cgi artists do to stick our skin mesh to the bones of the model). When I add the controls to the model (to make it move) I'll add it next week on the site with pics.

However I got some holiday cards I did throughout early 2008 to show you all though that were only sent via email to colleages or posted on my friends sites on myspace. Enjoy! (Note click on links for larger pic!):

Easter Card 3908

In 2007 I created this Christmas card for my fellow Myspace pals and emailed it around to approximately 100 friends and business associates or so:

Merry X-mas 2007

What a coincidence! I ran across brilliant artist Richard Gaines blog and came across his 2008 Christmas card:

I'm not saying he ripped my idea off, after all a reindeer using santa as his bitch is a pretty general twist on a timely tradition, that is meant to trigger humor. I just wanted to say how sometimes great minds will think alike and come across the same/similar conclusion. Our compositions are really close too! All I gotta say is hats off to you Richard, great to know how certain folks can share the same sense of humor!
