Iron Man

Naturally while scrolling threw Danny Yount's work I was inspired to start making something. The pitch for the Avengers really caught my eye, took it from there to start whipping up something and this is what came of that.

Definitely take a look at Danny Yount's work. He is without a doubt one of the strongest heads in the Motion Graphics industry.

Kind of had a burst of inspiration that had to do with corruption and military, this is what came of it.

A couple of weeks ago I was playing around with the bend deformer in Cinema 4D and made some interesting shapes. Ended up with this weird triangle looking circle thing, I really dug it and wanted to play around with it some more and just kept messing around till I got this.

Glitch (The Day Project)

The common "glitch effect", plain and simple. Nothing too fancy today. Guess I over did myself yesterday & stayed up too late. Better to get something in then not.

The Cake is a LIE! (10 Minute Project is now called the Day Project)

The Cake is a LIE! If you have ever played Portal you should enjoy this one and if you haven't YOU BETTER DAMN SHOULD PLAY IT RIGHT NOW! Well when you have free time I guess... & of course actually wanting to purchase this very awesome game made by one of the best game developers in the whole WORLD! & If you have a person to play video games with, even more perfect cause Portal 2 has a co-op mode. A real good serious time awaits you and your co-op buddy. Probably one of the very few games that leave you smart & felt like you finished a well thought out puzzle rather then you feeling like you wasted your time shooting aliens, mutated creatures, demons, kitties or even worse other human beings! Well...

virtual human beings...

...that are being controlled by real human beings. WHAT KIND OF WORLD IS THIS?!...

Anyways, I'm tired.

Oh yeah this one is inspired by Portal if you haven't noticed.

Death from Above (10 Minute Project, Not really... Again)

Here is another 10 minute project that didn't last only 10 minutes, haha. I'm going to assume a lot of these aren't going to be only just 10 minutes.

I'm sure all of use that played Mario Kart growing up had a love/hate relationship with these guys. Probably more hate then love.

10 Minute Project ( Not Really )

I've always wanted to get started with these 10 minute projects & today I finally got to doing so with a little push by a particular podcast I happened to be listening on my daily commute. I started off with the first idea that came to my head, which was a Boba Fett from Star Wars and then it went all down hill from there & spent well over 10 minutes on this piece, haha. I think I ended going at it for over 1 1/2 hours. I guess that's what these projects are all about I suppose, to just jump start you into a fun idea to just get you into the project with out any hesitation.

I could have worked on more of the type but I guess it's off to a good start.
