Latest work
show user profile  BLoSk
Guess I'll post some of my latest work. Wanted to post it in finished art as most of it is sort of finished but not all so I guess I post it here.

Well this one is sort of my latest work, it's an old scene I fixed up. Props to grotey for showing me how to do the candle fire ages ago.

Old model I fixed up and re-animated.

Another old model lol. animated it for the first time. i'm still planning to make a longer anim with it, but the idea I have for it is pretty hard for me I think so i'm still pondering on how to go about it.
And I have it fully textured now but i'm still doubting if I leave the mirrored textures as I have it now or go through the hassle of making sure all textures are unique.

Some playing around with After Effects.

Playin around in AE with a very old model I found on my HD.

Started to do some music too lately, (after some failed attempts in the past), and my bro liked it so much he wanted to rhyme on it, and apparently we're a rap group now lol.
Not takin it all too seriously, we don't even have the gear to do it if we wanted (mic I have is probby not even worth 10$ lol) but it's fun to do. And it's a good way to learn a bit more about making music.

Hiya Blosk. I rememeber your name from a few years back. I really like your experiments. I can see where your coming from. There's something about the tune you made too. Its a bit cheeky, but I do the odd tune, not much gets finished, but I like to have a play about sometimes. Can you send me just the voice bit of that tune so I can have a play with it ? I'm quite shit at making tunes, but I've thought about using a vocal for a while. Anyhoo I digress. Keep the animation tests coming :)

edit: kind of reminds me of this a bit

Hi Mashedpot8er, yea remember you too. I wouldn't be surprised if I remember pretty much every single name of the ppl who at least were sort of regular, I might be a bit of a stoner but my neurons can be on fire lol. Brag Brag. It does help that I kept lurking around a bit here part of the time though.
And too bad it seems to work more for irrelevant things then very important things lol, no offence to you guys.. ;-P Missed ya all.

Glad you like it, thanks.
Didn't use AE for years then I found out about Andrew Kramers shit (which i'm sure ppl who know his tuts already noticed) which helped me alot, and about the fact that AE seems to have evolved quite a bit since I last used it (or I just didn't know about a lot of it back then lol), so I had quite a bit of fun with experimenting.

I'm the same with my music (and graphics design a bit too btw), Pretty hard to actually finish songs.
Especially since I feel like shit when listening to "real" musicians work and then thinking about my work and how much it can be improved lol. And once I have a bit of a melody and/or beat that's ok I find it hard to vary on that.
Well at least the genre is known for repetitive beats and tunes hehe.
And luckily my bro wanted to rap on it as before he did I was really annoyed by the repetition in the song. Sounds much more complete with vocals on it.
Got 2 more songs semi-finished, going to try some rapping on it myself too, although I probably need a better mic as I can't seem to be able to record it decently. Guess the fact that my bro is a pretty decent and experienced singer/rapper makes some difference. I should be able to do a semi-decent rap though.
And fuck the P's and S-ses lol, those letters are a drama when recording vocals with shitty gear.

This is the mic we used, i'm still surprised it didn't sound like total shit.

Would be fun to see what others make with those vocals, so sure, give me your mail and i'll send you the vocals.

Well guess I dump the rest of my experimenting etc here too.

I did something wrong on this one though, the glass is not doing what it's supposed to be doing.

And this one is very original I know.

And while i'm at it i'll throw in some music from my bro with an intro made by me.

Btw I can vaguely remember the forum breaking when too much video's are being embedded on one page, is this still the case?

Hey BloskI had one of those mics too - it came with my Creative Labs AWE32 sound card way back in 1993 or something. That's an OLD piece of kit! I used to write music a bit using the Cakewalk sequencer and the wavetables on the AWE card there are about 2hrs of ambient techno I wrote kicking about on audio cassette at home!

I can't hear your stuff here at work so I'll have to give it a listen when I get home :)

Lol 1993, pretty old. I'm planning on buying a tiny bit less sucking mic when I got the money to do so though, only 20 euro's still, but should be better then this old thing.

Lol you still got cassette tapes. Feels like another lifetime thinking about those lol.
You sure you still have that music? Magnetic tape can lose its content a bit after a while can't it?

@ Mashedpot8er:
"edit: kind of reminds me of this a bit"
I like it, pretty cool, besides the quality of the sound being a bit of wonky. Might be youtube.
I'm pretty sure the piano melody in it is a sample though, not that it really matters... That's the origin of hip-hop eh.

Ah, there's a "rules" button at the top now.
Sig was slightly too big, fixed it.

Mashedpot8er if you still want the vocals to play around with drop me a mail. You can find my e-mail address on the website in my profile. Hurry before my brother becomes too famous to let ppl play around with his vocals without paying royalties lol.

While i'm posting anyway... Here's some work I'll probably not finish soon...

Cupcakes... Or should I say poocakes lol. Couldn't get the cake to look like anything near cake so I stopped trying and poopcakes were born. Probably go back to this some time when I master mats some more. Will do a full plate with some variation in the cupcakes if I can figure out how to do the material.

Chuck the alien... Got stuck at skinning this fella so for now I put it aside. Even tried making a very basic humanoid shaped model to try to figure out skinning, but still failed.
Only the modeling of the alien is (probably) fully finished, no idea what way the rest might go.
