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! 🙂
I am concentrating my digital 3D portfolio, the 3D art created with Maya, Mudbox, ZBrush, Blender and the 2D software used for texturing those models, into a single portfolio hosted by Squarespace.com. That hosting system allows me to to concentrate on my portfolio of art that is not web related, meaning that I do not have to code a single part of the site.
If I were a web designer or developer then that would not be ideal. I would have a site hand-coded to show all my skills on web design and development (no, not the same thing, by the way). One thing that I like, is that I can connect this “catch it all blog” to it and repost anything from there that I want. But not automatically. Which I like better to be selective.
This blog and site is mostly for my film, my independent work. That other site is for my commercial 3D work.
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??)
