pimped out, chromed out, truck mobile

let's try centered text!
started work on the truckboat a couple of days ago for the london 2111 game.
hmm, I really need to think of a name for the 'truckboat'..

the air is ionised, so electronics don't work anymore!
only these patched up '70 and earlier cars still run.

the wheels adjust in height, and the fenders will be capped off
and thus serve as air bubbles to keep it up!

here's the progress =D

 also, oil isn't a usable resource for this one, so I went
with a propane tank!

peace out!

Guns Guns Guns

here's an update.
I finished my normalmap yesterday.
for those of you who don't know what it is: a normalmap creates the illusion that there is more geometry than there actually is. by talling the specular where to go (speculars are calculated by the shader using the normals of an object.
it's possible to store the normals of a smooth opbject into textures for a chunky low poly object. this is done by calculating the difference between the chunky low and the smooth high poly, and storing that in a normalmap, which is applies like a texture.

here I've 'baked' the way the blue highpoly looks onto the chunky red and it makes the bottom chunky one look as smooth as the top most!



cheers!

Speed/gunfire

Time to crank it up
working on a gun now for 3D 3
I've chosen the K-50M, mainly used in the vietnamese war.
I'll take you (who-ever reads this and is interested) through my process by posting pictures. right now i'm working on the highpoly. by next week we'll be making it lowpoly in class. Then I'll have to normalmap the highpoly onto the lowpoly and generate a texture, a glossy and a specular map.

here's when I have so far ^^ click to enlarge.

woensdag 17 november 2010

a friend of mine sent me this insanely funny pic.
most of you already saw it by now, most probably,
but i'll post it here anyway, just to be complete about things.

one last thing, read it from right to left.

here ya go:

















cheerio!

just a quick update

leveldesign werkin' today, but not for leveldesign, for integration projects ^^ (sub surface game). also wasted most of my time on the panel vor 3D4games, which i'll be updating tomorrow when it's finished.

here's a screencap of it running on the 'very high' spec. which I only use for screens. I design in the low spec, to keep the framerate up. but that would look kinda boring to post :D

peace out ^^

also, this fort minor lyrics popped out to me today: 

Nobody really knows how or why he works so hard
It seems like he's never got time

And I've seen him at work when that light goes on in his mind
It's like a design is written in his head every time


^^


baby, these last days were great!

One Day Two Days

The night before: the second try at maths.
kinda nervous, but the butterflies in my belly are in control.

Two nights before: my second try at integration
if I fail this one i'll lose all of my friends by not passing to the second year.
I must pass.

Two nights before: I get to be with my lovely girlfriend again.
to lay in her arms and forget the word, is the best end-exam-celebration ever
really,
ever.

Facing forwards going slowing, waiting for you to show me,
where this train wants to go.

De kleine dingen van elkaar leren kennen.
Daar begint het dan.

Bij burn lipjes.
Bij badeendje Nummer één. want dat ben jij voor mij. nummer een.
Bij bandjes die te lang zijn, maar toch aan moeten.
Bij uit je bed springen en wachten in de kou om 4 uur op haar.
Bij een paar lieve woordjes helemaal onderaan een berichtje.
Bij Vis Met Puree.
Bij bij frietjes en chips met de verkeerde saus.
Bij even Content zijn met een kus op de wang, bij het afscheid.

Daar begint het dan.

ONE

Warning: This post is very deep of nature and contains expressions of my being.
anyone who things feelings are bullshit,
or that guys who have them are pansies:
get the fuck out. Before you get sick.

Sometimes I wanna crawl up and die.
I don't even fit my own idealist convictions anymore.
how can I be one of a people when i feel not a people to belong too.
a stranger in my own world. my world?

I feel the words, but I don't hear them.
I hear the words, but don't feel them.
inaudible. unpenatrating.

From my point, I stand alone. and Laugh. and Weep.
How come I don't see the world like you do.
Is it because I have my eye's closed?
I don't think so!

It's not to late for me. I can start anew. we can start anew.
I feel it in my heart, my flesh and my bones.
I feel it when the energy surges though me.
I feel it when the adrenaline kicks in and takes over.
I feel it in my very being.
But mostly, when I see YOU,
The people.

Hello again

ahahaha
seems like every post I make here should be Labled: long time no see :D

Hello again, why so old?,
Wasn't time your friend? I must be told
Hello again, it seems to long
Since we last met, how has it gone

Don't accept the blame, I would not complain,
'Cause i'm sure it wasn't your own fault
Thats you never made it out your vault
Just Lock the door, and find some time to scream
To scream again!

anyway, working on some schoolprodjects to get my mind of the, ah, schoolprojects :D
just reeled in the entire discography of 30 seconds to mars, hurray :D
(no, the lyrics inbetween are not from 30 seconds to mars =D)

You have no home, you lost your throne, where has it gone?,
Well it could all come back,
But you're being led by the walking dead,
You stumble and you cracked the ground,
You're pinned down...

sketches and updates on the progress coming.. tomorrow :D promise promise, really, Promise ^^

Hello Again, it's not that hard.

I thought that it was real
but I guess it's no big deal

zondag 28 maart 2010

Some things you can fuck right up,
other things well you'd better not screw up.
My problem is that I could not see,
what was important right in front of me .

The Rush of the Crowd

it don't mean nothing
when you say it's gonna be alright
cause you'll tell me anything i wanna hear
and it don't mean nothing
when you laugh at my jokes
cause it's all or nothing when i fall apart

you're under my skin now
i could shut out the world that we know
i'll try to be everything you want me to be
and i've gotta head start
but i'm making the same mistakes
cause it's all or nothing when i fall apart

caught in the rush of the crowd
lost in a wall of sound
you were ringing in my ear

when I fade
into you
