A time-lapse on a piece of art with my kiddos looking stoic and over-important. Made it for my wife for Mother's Day to replace an old piece we had hanging up in the basement.

This is the entire creation of the Fh_Hyperbole font from start to finish. Since there's like 30 hours of material here, this is once again sped up to show the process. If you have any questions about anything I'm doing, just ask and mention the time, and I may even turn it into its own tutorial.

Darwin The Dragon

This is the creation of my Darwin The Dragon character from start to finish (modeling, rigging, and skinning). Darwin will be used as part of a different side project I'm working on. The recorder got overloaded a couple times when I was making this, so if the quality biffs or pauses for a couple seconds, it does come back. This was my first time rigging and skinning.
