Photoshopping happy families.

Image manipulation is absolutely one of my favorite things to do. Here is my want-to-be DP before and after shots. We used random house lighting items to attempt a decent lighting set up. Here's before (top) and after Photoshopping (bottom).

Some of my work on Bolt


I can post these now that the game is out. These are the main 2 areas that I worked on. I modeled, textured, and lit almost everything in the screen shots. I'll dig around at work to find other parts I worked on.

It is a sad day when we do not get our daily dose of basketball (nbc nba showdown arcade) at work. Now that Brandon has been hired on at BlueSky, our basketball days have come to an end. Rest in peace horse, crunch, ref. You will be missed.

take one for the team


I've been reading about the history of the CIA as of lately. A privatized militaristic spy service with little regulation had led to nothing but disaster. It's amazing to see how many countries have been assaulted economically and politically. Let's get educated peeps!

The most frightening film.

Diablo 3 fan art


Blizzard recently announced Diablo 3. Here is my concept of a boss fight character. He would start as a caster, then turn into a scratchy-melee type and chase after the player.

Wii Fail coming to stores this fall ... and will somehow be out of stock.



E3 (the big video game convention) is going on and the big 3 (Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft) have had their press conferences. Nintendo's was so pathetic and sad. I hope that everyone gets mad at them for a crappy sales strategy and lack of quality games.

The movie clip has the creator of Mario playing along with Wii Music. I'm all for innovation, but let's not forget what has and hasn't worked in the past eh? I've liked Nintendo in the past, but that is changing quickly. This is vile.

Papi and the family portraits.


I love photoshopping images. I was hoping to create portraits for my whole family(each with their personalities visually incorporated), but I am busy with work, a side project, and getting fat. Whatcha think?

How cool would it be to have your computer background be of my dad?!
