Hey folks!!
Just wanted to let you know that my new portfolio website WWW.LOOKATSIMON.COM is up!
I really needed a site to promote and show ALL of my stuff at one place, instead of directing people to 3-4 other websites... So what do you think about it?
And very much thanks to Nath Milburn for hosting it, making it cheaper for me :)

Be sure to check out Insanimation's fairly new website called INSPIRATIONOVERLOAD.ORG!!

Not too much happening lately, only that me and TommyVF and MarcyVF showed a couple of flash movies at a local culture festival, and got on to the next level thingy :)

So... Are you up to some good music?

But if I get cancer, you will be informed if YOU FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER!

Insanimation here on Newgrounds has just released his new design blog called InspirationOverload!
I just got invited to www.dribbble.com , an invite only website for creatives and designers, where you show a 400x300 image of something you are working on.
If you are there, be sure to ADD ME!

I'm also constantly updating my flickr page with stuff.
Yep.
And last but not least, I'm working with some 3D stuff as well.

SO WHATS UP EVERYBODY?!

Let's all take a trip into the future.
This is an abstract, futuristic animation I did in Cinema 4D.

I also made an image with the same creature here on Newgrounds, which is high-def compared to the video.

I'm doing all these fancy, vintage-ish, artistic photos.
CHECK. EM. OUT.

Get a free house and 100 billion liters of soda!

Styles Coffee + T-shirt design + CN

I recently made a short ''commercial'' for ''Styles Liquid Roast Coffee'' to sprite up his website. I'm pretty happy with it, as I also made the music.
Check it out:

I made a T-shirt design a couple of days ago (which I got in to SimpleDesktops.com). It would be awesome if you voted for it :)

CampNorth.tv is up in a few days after a pretty long maintenance and improvement period. I can't wait!
I believe it will be super mega ultra awesome.

What also is going to be mega awesome, is the Apple conference that starts within only 2 hours! It will be fun to see the rumored ''iTablet'' and maybe iLive 10...

Make sure to check out this robot I made in Cinema 4D, and Explosive Joking (pretty awful name right?)

Christmas flash + 3D stuff!

Phew!
Finally done with my christmas submission!
You can view it HERE!
Hope you like it :)

Unfortunately, it's a bit rushed, since I really didn't want to work super hard during christmas times.
I therefore hurried up and finished it so that it's eligible to the xmas competition.

---------------------

I really start to love 3D stuff, and I have been experimenting with RealFlow in addition to Cinema 4D, and it's just plain awesome! But until I get my new iMac [the 5th of January!!!], I'm not too hyped up about it, since my computer struggles with heavy 3D stuff...

But hey! Here's some things I've made:

A CUP OF COFFEE

It's getting CLOSER!!

CHRISTMAS!

Oh boy, oh boy.
The 24th of December, a smoking hot Wacom Intuos4 will be mine! Can't wait!

Something even more awesome, though, is my new 27'' iMac that hopefully will arrive by Wednesday! That i7 quad-core beast will most likely boost up the render times significantly, mainly in Cinema 4D and After Effects.
That sure will be awesome!

It's been snowing on and off for about a week now, I just wish that it would stay longer :'(

-------------

On the creative front however, it's going quite good. If you won't think about my christmas flash, that is.

I'm currently in love with C4D, After Effects, polaroid/vintage/slow-motion stuff!
Simply can't get enough of it, and it's unfortunately consuming much of the homework time.

Well, well.
I made a 3D wooden dresser in Cinema last week, check it out HERE.

I've done some motion graphics too:

3D SHIT

2009-11-21 14:21:14 by SimonG

Been doin some 3D stuff lately!
I do it in Cinema 4D, an awesome program that's quite user friendly.
I really like it and stuff, so yeah. Here's a gravity-ish kind of thing :):

.
/* */
I hope to do some more complex stuff soon. The really hard part is the modeling, and I'm trying as hard as I can to learn techniques and ways of doing stuff. Got any good tutorials btw?
---------
I'm also working on a christmas movie :)
Hope to see it finished, though it may not be. BUT I HOPE! >:O
---------
And last; I'm currently waiting for my new iMac!!
It's one heavy beast, it's the quad i7 version of the new 27'' iMac! And oh boy how I look forward to get that puppy home!

3D SHIT
