A Penguin’s Short Slide (Short Animation)

A cocky penguin dares himself to slide off a mountain with a steep cliff edge only to hesitate when it’s too late. My first short animation in Blender.  What I thought would only take me a couple days, took almost 2 weeks.

If you enjoyed the animation, please share with friends.

Spider Coffee Bot v2 – ‘The Rhino Strikes Back’

Need a robot that will slay your enemies and bring you coffee at the same time? Introducing the coffee bot: All machine, All caffeine. I made this model to be 3d printed.

The previous model I made with Rhino 3d only printed 3 parts, the dish, a couple legs and the head. I don’t know what happened but I’m too frustrated with Rhino to mess with it anymore. It’s probably not rhino’s fault, but my inexperience with CAD based NURBs modelers. The model was remade from scratch using Blender. It took about 4 hours to make this. It is a solid single mesh.  With a few minor adjustments to the legs,  this thing could be animated.

I’m much happier with the remake and I’m %100 confident that it print out correctly.

Sad ChipRom

sadrom-artflow

Today was a bad day. A bunch of little things happened.. and then my car broke down. I was stranded for a couple hours int he middle of nowhere before my father could come to my aid. Pack rats are most likely the cause. My dad helped me replaced the damaged hoses but there is still something wrong with the car.

While waiting for the tow truck, I painted this on my Android Tablet using Artflow. It is of ChipRom feeling as down as I am. For some reason I felt better after drawing this.

Yoshi riding Poochy + Yoshi’s Woolly World semi review

yoshi riding poochy

I did this sketch of the lovable green dinosaur Yoshi, and his sickeningly cute companion Poochy.  I didn’t have time to draw them as thread, unfortunately. My friend Cruz bought “Yoshi’s Woolly World’ the other day and wanted to play it, 8 hours later it was midnight and just starting the 5 world. That is when we collapsed. We finished the game in a couple hours the next day.

So what to do I think of it?

Its basically the same as Yoshi’s Island with a cool fabric / wool aesthetic similar to Kirby’s Epic Yarn. It is a platform game where you can swallow enemies and turn them into yarn to throw as projectiles.

You play as a Yoshi (it’s both a dino race and a singular character) trying to rescue the other yoshis that where kidnapped and turned into wool thread (don’t ask) by the evil koopa wizard Kemak.  I only played it in co-op so far.

Very little has changed from previous Yoshi Island games with the big exception that BABY MARIO IS NOT IN IT! THANK ARCEUS! In the earlier games, baby Mario rode on your back. If you got hurt, Mario would fly off your back, giving you 10 seconds to capture him. Instead of getting ten seconds to save a baby with the most ear wrenching cry ever before ‘dying’, you simply get a life bar.

The graphics are very impressive, the fabric look is just adorable, everything, including the enemies look the like something you would see at a craft fair.

It was truly a blast to play with my friend in CO-OP. Sometimes it was advantageous, other times he would accidentally swallow me and spit me out into a pit and then say opps :/. Since I am good with platform games I could help my friend, I could hold my friend in my mouth and get past the area he was having trouble with and spit him out. (that sentence sounded strange but we are both yoshis in the game and ‘friendly fire’ is enabled with no way of turning it off)

Now for the disappointing things: the boss battles are way too easy, in fact we only died once fighting the giant plant boss.  The camera also has a mind of it’s own.

The game itself is a bit on the easy side, however, the game clocks in around 12 hours if you blitz it which is a decent length for it’s kind. Not to mention all the secrets could add a few more hours to the length

I recommend it to platform and Yoshi fans

Coffee Spider Bot 3d Model WIP

coffeebotmodelwip

Here is the 3d model I made, using a NURBs based modeler called Rhino 5. The coffee spider robot is almost ready to serve its brew to the masses.

I’ve been a polygon modeler and have done very little with NURBs ( I would use them mostly for lofts and then convert them to polygons). They feel so foreign to me. After 5 hours of figuring this stuff out, I was able to assemble this 3d model.  If this was a poly model, it would be twice as detailed but I’m required to use NURBs for this assignment so I’m feeling a little crippled right at the moment. I’m required to use Rhino for this project so I have no choice. I have no doubt that Rhino is a powerful tool, I just don’t know how to do everything with it.

The spider bot should make a fine sculpture when it is 3d printed.

The Coffee Spider Bot (Concept art)

coffespider

Concept Art for the coffee spider bot. This robot delivers coffee in seconds will satisfy all you coffee needs.

This concept art is for a 3d printing project. I needed to create a machine that would be too impractical. A ginormous robot spider that’s sole purpose is to make and deliver coffee fits the bill.

The 3d model is almost done. I will upload it soon.

I finally got my spaceship 3d printed, I will upload some photos soon.
