Pink at DragonCon

I could have sworn I posted this already... but anyway, the very awesome Romily got this picture of my segment from Never Stay Tuned being played at DragonCon!

The Prince and the Paint Can - Blizzcon 2011 WoW Machinima

My 2011 Blizzcon entry, The Prince and the Paint Can:

The expansion after Mists of Pandaria...

I'm pretty sure the next expansion after Mists of Pandaria will be a thinly disguised Australian continent, where you choose between the warring Koalians and Kangaren.

The architecture will be based entirely on Outback Steakhouse.

King Varian's Twilight Ride

A bit of silliness that popped into my head after finishing War Stories, thanks to Zimtower's constnat spamming of Kim Lukas, gnomes in clouds, and my little pony.

Blizzcon 2011 second contest progress

Blizz is having a second Blizzcon video contest this year, and this one isn't accepting webcam vlogs so more machinima folks are actually entering. I know Mushanga, Zimtower, and WowCrendor have horses in the race, so there will at least be honest competition.

Memories of Blizzard: VOTE

After a long period of scary silence, the Memories of Blizzard contest has announced entries... and I'm in it! Now I just need to figure out how to vote(Looks like it needs facebook, boo!) and to try and get people to do so!
So go check it out- it seems that mine might be the only machinima on the list, though I'll have to watch through them all to be sure.

Blizzard's 20th anniversary contest

So, I made a movie for Blizzard's 20th anniversary contest in 48 hours.

I really hadn't planned to enter, but Paus convinced me that I had to, at least, try if I actually came up with an idea. So I fooled around with some thoughts, but then gave it a rest, not really liking anything. Then I suddeny had a silly little idea and banged it out.

I learned that perhaps the most important thing is not to rush, though- I nearly killed my computer trying to multitask too much. I ended up losing more time with rebooting my computer and poking around inside it to see why it wasn't giving me a display than I did waiting for a render to finish to move to the next part.

Voice acting was done on extremely short notice, completely by amateur talent(including myself!), and thanks to Rob(the guy who plays the original Cad character) for wrangling some actors up for me while I was busy animating. Sadly, my usual suspects like TotalBiscuit wern't free on such short notice(can't blame them there, of course) which probably would have slammed th.

Given all the problems I had(including having to replace a video card during it) I'm pretty happy with the result, though I woulda liked to have had longer especially for dealing with the voice acting.

Assuming it gets into the voting round, I'm gonna need all the help I can with the votes!

Further into the Danger Zone

I hadn't planned on doing any more with it, but I decided to rework some of the UVs and add a cockpit.

Alterac Barracks

No, I'm not dead. I've had some computer-being-dead issues, some illness, and some employment to distract me, though.

This is entirely texture editing, so there are some UV problems with the model that I didn't fix. It is a version of the standard human barracks for Alterac, with snow.

I created it for SirFranc and Chronicles of Azeroth.
