Recently, my family suffered a loss. We’ve been adjusting and coping as best we can, but it means we haven’t been engaging much in the world out here. I’ve sat down to write many times, and I just couldn’t. So I took a bit of a break.
But I’ve been trying to get back in the swing of things as the weather warms and the world wakes up again. Today I plan to get back to the normal schedule and in the near future, a more solid schedule will work itself out.
As for what I’ve been doing in the interim, I’ve been working on mastering some new techniques pairing Sketchup with Sculptris. Both are 3D modeling programs, but they go about it very differently. Sketchup is very precise, designed for careful, measured work, whereas Sculptris is designed to work more like actual clay. They are both amazing in different ways, and its taken me a little time, but I’ve learned how to make them work together. It has opened up a world of creative possibilities.
I’ve opened up a shop on Shapeways for the items I love and think you all will like. I would appreciate some input on designs, so if you go check them out, leave a comment on what you like or don’t like.
