Street Fighter II Turbo: HD Remix

Pure nostalgia! --sweet memories of Golfland arcades and local 7/11's. Classic gameplay at it's best, all with updated graphics.

If anyone's up for a few friendly rounds on XBox Live, let me know and I'll send you my tag. I just gotta get me one of these first!

And sorry if don't have time in the near future to post personal work. You know how it job = gotta work extra hard to get up to speed instead of bloggin'! :)

Prince of Persia

9.3 on IGN! This week can't come soon enough! I just hope my excitement doesn't get the best of me.

Poll Results: IK Spine?

Spines with both FK and IK controllers seem to be more and more common these days. I've only played around with them very briefly, but haven't felt the need to use them yet. I can see it definitely being good for things like squash and stretch in the torso or for characters on all fours.

I have a new character model/rig that I've been working on lately. It's always good to have both options, but since I don't know how to set one up yet, I just wanted to see if it was in my interest to take the time to learn, since I still need to learn animation:)

LEC Lunch Crew (Done)

I think I'm going to call this done for now, even if I didn't get all six characters in. Sorry Eric--I'll have to add you in the next round!

Lately I've been wanting to try to draw in a more reductive and stylized fashion, but I always end up adding more lines and detail as I noodle. I then end up with something that's not pushed enough in terms of shapes, proportions, and gesture, but at the same time, not realistic enough in terms of lighting and rendering. I always seem to end up at an awkward place somewhere inbetween. Guess I'll just have to keep practicing.

LEC Lunch Crew

I couldn't get this out before Halloween, but here you go--another WIP to add to my collection of unfinished personal work.

Tristan Sacramento as Kratos
David Lam as Wolverine
Eric Lin as Spiderman (in jeans and a Spidy t-shirt)
Me as Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden)
Steve Kuroki as the Juggernaut
Patrick Przybyla as the Secret Apprentice

There's a few characters still missing, but as you can see, I can't even finish six.
Anyway hope everyone had a happy Halloween!
