Vector Character in a 3D world test

vector character and 3d model combonation test with illustrator and sketchup

Just making make sure this would actually work. I created my first set for my comic in 3d, the dragon’s work area. After I created the set, I experimented with rendering to see what way would be best and tried various toon shaders , flat shading, among other things. I found the best result and it matched with the vector character, as I want it to look as seamless as possible. I’m using techniques used more by animators then cartoonist for this project. I want the comic to look very clean and professional.

Valve’s Steam holiday sale loves you.. and your wallet

steam holiday sale 2013  broke out off money no steam no

This years Steam holiday sale has been going on for little over a week now. This year i’ve actually stashed some cash for the sale this year, as it is the only time I purchase games on steam is on the summer and holiday sales. Prices are so low at these times as I can purchase 20 games (I counted them, I’m not exaggerating) for the price of a new game ($60 bucks), so I always wait  no matter how tempting it is to buy a brand new game. Bundles are my weakness, I have 120 or so games on steam, 75% of those where bough in bundles . Although I get great deals from steam every year, I still feel violated and dirty.

I’ve had a steam account since it’s creation in 2005, I was forced to join to play my copy of Half-Life 2- it’s the same tactic EA used with Battlefield 3 to sign people up with Origin)the biggest problem I have is that since I buy in bulk, I haven’t even played half the games in my library.

To feel like I haven’t wasted my money using Steam for 7 years, I will start writing short reviews with a accommodating vector artwork drawn by moi.

The artwork featured in this post is vector art and show the three Steam mascots taking my money. But instead of drawing myself, I drew a dragon, ’cause dragons are cooler.
