2nd October: Cults are bad
When I was about nine I accidentally joined The Young Pioneers of China (中国少年先锋队, read about them over at Wikipedia) because I was nine and just wanted to make some friends and do what the other kids did. For our writing workshop I mentioned this little dumb thing I did and I guess now I’m storyboarding what probably would have happened if The Young Pioneers were a cult instead, so instead of red scarves everyone has a weird uniform consisting of red everything from pointy wizard hats to scouts sashes and socks.
If you’re interested in China’s weird system of youth Communism, read more here, here, here and here.
Markers, crayons and a inky ball point pen, y’all.
1st September, 2013: uhuh
You’ll be seeing these for a while. I’ll post up my Quotet section in a few days after the actual concert is over.
Spent a little over an hour on this one. Three so far! Not really the 4perweek I was aiming for but that was a pretty high overestimation. I wish I knew how to get hair like that but nah I’m too lazy to figure it out so I’ll just wait. I still can’t be sure about ears.
18th August, 2013: another one yes
I have done three so far because why not. I also like wrinkles and noses, so you’ll see a lot of that. This is also via pinterest (our tutor is pretty keen on that) from this site here which has lots of excellent vintage photographs. I didn’t spend as long on this one (in that I didn’t finish) because this is stress relief for me. And I concentrated more on the ears this time round.
15th August, 2013: Ghandi
I modeled a thing in Mudbox the other day with this reference (via pinterest and my tutor) and it turned out pretty great. This took about an hour, using a basic face mesh or whatever it is. I ran out of energy at the ears.

The bottom still is the current thing that I’m spinning. I love it more than the other two (it’s like how parents really do have favourite children, sadly). Here is the first still in action.
Photoshop and Google, AfterEffects, blood, sweat and tears.

It’s back from the dead and severely delayed but absolutely 100% alive and the comics in the blog post are definitely better than the comics here.
Pen on paper.
