It's been real, Blogger!

Today I've transferred my blog over to my new personal domain, kmcfadden.com. I've been very happy with Blogger over the years, but I'm ready to grow my site into a more professional one. Join me on my journey :]

Another Mermaid Rendering Update!

So today I got one of my papers done (the easier of the 2 :/) and made a lot of progress on my rendering project. I'm not sure if this is final or not - depends if I have time tomorrow after I write my other essay and study for my test. I would like to redo the hair. I'm pleased with it, though. Underwater is fun! It's also kinda endless because you can always add more detail.

EDIT - Comment if you think this looks too dark. It looks very different on my laptop monitor than the one I was working on in the lab :\

Week 11 Grind

This is what I look like when I have a bad cold that won't go away and two projects, two papers, and a test all due in less than 4 days.



Ah, finals week! Tales of success and vacation hopefully to come soon :P

Mermaid diorama continued

Worked on the mermaid's background a bit more today. I've been sick which has slowed me down this week :/ Fortunately I'm getting better now. I have three finals on Monday so I really need to buckle down and finish things...

Finished my Demo Reel

Well, a demo reel's never really finished - but I'm happy with it, for now! :] I also went to Canada this weekend and had a wonderful time. Back to the grind for the next two weeks, then Thanksgiving break. I have two essays and two final projects left before then.

P.S. - This is my 60th blog post, hooray!

Work o' the Day

Today I did some more work on the mermaid and also my demo reel. I've uploaded a WIP of the demo reel, comments/feedback would be great since I'm still working on it!



For the mermaid, I attempted hair. Hmm...not feeling it yet...
