If you are interested in continuing to follow me, head over to https://dacadaguao4d.com It is a WordPress hosted site so you can still use your WordPress login to follow!
Of course, you can use email too. I am concentrating on that site and already migrated all the blog from this one, except this particular post!
This address (gerardovargas.graphics) will soon direct there as a forwarding service so this will go back to the original WordPress url i got back when! And this is likely the last post here. Ill keep the account open for a few more weeks and the. Close it completely. If you are interested in the development of the film… head over there…
Thank you all for the support and hope to continue seen you! I will go and stalk you back from Daca Daguao Digital Design, LLC! 🙂
Turns out I will have to take a non-art job as a day job to pay for the “societal slavery” of bills. That means it will take more time to finish this project of mine. Good thing is that I can and should use public transportation where I could continue working with my new iPad Pro and pencil… and if still energetic when I get home, then spend time on Blender.
This situation, of course, makes me re-plan my societal life. I am selling all things shackle like, such as an inherited power boat, traditional art supplies I don’t use… a drafting table that is on my way, and light table that has not been used in years.
All that so I can say bye bye to slavery and become a digital nomad in the future. I have a couple of friends doing it and they are producing more content than me! And are happier!!!!
Very impressive news (at least to myself)! I have been hired to teach exactly what I learned during my MFA studies, that ended at PNCA with Blender (and Krita, Audacity, KDenlive, Celtx, etc. – open source) but started at AAU with Maya (and Mudbox, ZBrush, Logic Pro, Final Cut Pro, Final Draft, etc. – proprietary software).
I get to teach (open source and proprietary soft.) at Washington State University – how to model, rig and animated assets for games and film. I do not fit in my shoes right now. What an honor!
Of course, I am also trembling since it is a new chapter and my current (7 years) experience is at public schools. It will definitely be a very different experience now.
On the Traces Project front? Well, I got my hands on two 2009 Mac Pro’s with some killer hardware that I will set as render farms. I might use it for my students, but the intention is for my film. The best part, if Mac OS is not up to date, I can go all Linux and use the ATI and the NVIDIA hardwares (two of each on each machine) with the open source I learned about and will teach my students (can I say that already??)
