It's 12.22.12 and I'm still here, so I might as well write about the things I'm doing. Since I now have access to a PC capable of handling more than my aging Macbook, I decided to install 3DS Max and start adding that skill to my resume. Since I've taught myself Blender, I knew it's just a matter of getting used to the interface and idiosyncrasies, and putting in the hours. Not much to show yet, but it's coming. Speaking of going back to things, I've also started capturing and editing videos of me doing my speed paintings, uploading them to my Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/Hamsta180 Here are some of the latest:

I'm working on my board game again, after a brief hiatus to do a couple of art test, and hitting a rougher patch of the unemployment roller coaster.

Progress on the board game. The resource cards are the first thing I tackled, thinking they would be relatively straight forward, and I tried out a realistic approach, but it didn't feel right.

My cousin had me play Settlers of Catan for the first time about half a year ago. I was instantly hooked, and have been delving deeper into the hobby ever since, first in the Bay Area, and now home to Haifa. I've found a group to play with on Monday, and we pull out Catan whenever my brother and SIL come to visit. I listen to blogs about it and watch videos on youtube. I figured I would try my hand at it, if only as an excuse to design some art. Here's what I have so far, some rough layouts and ideas. Prettier thing are soon to follow.

Core Runner started as a speed painting done to the Armada podcast. It was episode 81, with a runtime of 15:56

Here's an update on what I've been working on since my last update, I felt it was needed. I have been steadily working through the monster studies.

I did this page of monsters / animals yesterday, just to see what I can come up with. It was well received on my social networks, and one of my friends went on a 'like' binge through my art folders, including one of my studies, which made me realize it might not be a bad idea to do another one based on the monsters. I have been struggling lately with finding a project, this should kill some time.

Finally back to doing something along the lines of I would like to do, concept art. This is an exploration of succubi heads based on different horned animals. This is part of the redesign of an earlier work of mine, a military style insignia.

I talked with a Wooga representative during GDC Europe, and I told him I would do something in their style, to increase my chances. Here it is, a demoness based on something I did when I was 17 or 18 and had on my door since.
