So, future site update, yeah, I’m pretty much gonna redo most of the site, graphics, style, layout, keeping the content mind you. But I’m also working on the official Jumping Monkey character… in 3d! So far Iv’e got the basic head and ears. Other than this I really haven’t posted the character on this site much anyway, but there are a few exceptions (https://jumpingmonkeyart.wordpress.com/2014/05/08/atists-club/) (https://jumpingmonkeyart.wordpress.com/2014/05/06/bananas-sketch/) And yes, I do realize that more than few projects have been put on hold in the process, but… aurgh! The ideas won’t stop coming! Anywho, here is the sneak peak.
It was my first time ever using the hair particle system, and I had a heck of a time getting the fur right, But it ended up turning out alright. But, he’d better be good because he is going to be on the header. So I hope that works out. And there are a bunch of other exiting things happening as well. Recently I was asked to create a simple checker board for Skip Wilson (https://skipcasts.com/) and he ended up using it a couple places (https://skipcasts.com/blog/post/1/) and the other is a scene kit tutorial that is for pros. Skip Wilson has really great tutorials that are helpful if you want to program swift, so I encourage all who want to to sign up.
A couple last thing before I finish up: I already have an operational Vimeo account, and I’m planning to do gaming videos on it and possible animations at one point. The comics site will be merged with main one during the update. And I think that’s it, see ya.
