Extra-Life.org is running a charity gaming marathon to raise money for local children’s hospitals. This is a really cool way to raise money for charity and to help sick children.
If you want to join, here is their website:
If you want to help the cause, but can’t dedicate the time due to obligations or work, you can sponsor someone to play! Here is the link to my page should you choose to sponsor:
Took me longer than it should have ((almost a year *cough cough*)) but finally have my resume up and ready! And it’s available in 3 formats, with a possible OpenOffice version coming soon.
Well the Solminus project is about wrapped up, finished a flying castle, and a temple made of metal instead of stone. Been a crazy 11 weeks, however don’t think I’ll be idle for the 3 week summer break. I’m working on some landscape paintings in Photoshop, keeping up my graphite and charcoal abilities, and I’m working on a remake of a Metroid Prime: Hunters multiplayer map in UDK. I’ll post more about most of these later. Also, in case it’s hard to see, the website has been updated and redesigned. I think it’s looking pretty good. Anyways, I leave you with this for the summer:
An updated video of the Solminus Project. The snow has been changed out for a particle system, more textures added, and the timing has been reworked. The Skyward Sword effect has not been implemented yet though it is ready, and for some reason the video quality is lower even though it was rendered on the same machine with the same settings. Will look into this further.
Finally on the right track for the Skyward Sword filter effect for the Solminus Project. It’s not affected by scene depth yet, but that is a simple enough piece to add. Expect video and image stills by Tuesday.
Announcing the Solminus Project. Basic premise: A world in which the earth is sunless.
Is the sun really extinguished? Or is it obscured behind the thick black clouds of ash and smoke? Stay tuned to find out!
Well, things are looking busy for me:
January 27th-29th: Participating in the Global Game Jam
March 21st-25th: Volunteering at Tekkoshocon X, a local anime convention and my second year staffing.
June: College Graduation
Amongst those events, I will still be attending classes, maintaining a level of involvement with DGPX, and spending 1-2 Saturdays a month conducting a “How to Draw” workshop at local libraries for young adults.
