Please enjoy!

Most everything I do is in 3D using Maya (but I do use 3D Max for some items and have familiarized myself with Blender).
Most common theme is Action/Adventure or Sci-Fi/Fantasy and I also enjoy making fanart.
If you have questions or comments please just let me know! I love feedback!

I wasn't really sure what to think of Minecraft's new "Alex" model. I missed Steve. Then I made this. Ok, I'm good. :lol:

Black Betty - WIP by PlasticFrogCG
Black Betty - WIP
Head texture isn't done, hair texture isn't done, not fully rigged yet, need to make a blend shape for the hair when the hat is on, still need to organize screenshots for the texturing tutorial. But this is how far along she is! And honestly where she's been for a couple months now, kind of lost my drive. Hoping to pick her up again soon AND actually get a character reel made.

Ok...another AS3 question for anybody who wants to take a crack at it.

I have a number of random sounds imported to frames on the movie clip timeline. I have a timer code that will go to and stop on random frames thus playing the sound (the timer is set long enough to let the sounds play in full before going to the next one). I'll show you the code then I'll tell you my problem:

stop();

//AS3 timer setup
var soundDelay:Timer = new Timer(3000);
soundDelay.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, sounds);
soundDelay.start();

function sounds(event:TimerEvent):void{

    var sound_number : Number = 9;

    var randomFrame:Number = Math.floor(Math.random() * sound_number);

    trace(randomFrame);

    gotoAndStop(randomFrame);

}


It works fine! At first. From the trace I thought the frames seem to be multiplying exponentially, then I realized every time the animation on the main timeline loops the timer starts all over again causing the sound to begin to overlap.
So I guess my question is how do I reset the timer at the end of the animation to prevent it from starting all over again and causing the sounds to overlap?
I know I need to use .stop(); to stop the timer, but I need to make sure it doesn't stop untill it reaches the last frame in the root timeline.
All of the tips I've researched are for using button events to start and stop the animation, but I want it to function based on frame numbers.
I can sense I'm so close to the answer, but it's late, I'm tired. :lol:

(I know you've probably got some questions about why I put sound in the timeline instead of using the loadSound or attachSound commands. I'm just goofing around. I want to learn to use this method for other things as well.)

Decided to get the ball rolling on a texturing tutorial, which of course meant I needed a new character to work on :D

Black Betty is a recurring neutral villain for Nika and Tabby to chase around. Inspired mostly so I could use Spiderbait's version of Black Betty in a video, lol.

Here are some tattoo ideas. I'm hoping I can actually get my little sister to make them, because I'm honestly terrible at anything more complex than a few lines. Translations provided by the internet, so...sorry :lol:

Some guy from the east coast who thinks he knows something about making CG art (I think they call it 'delusions of grandeur'). It's a love nurtured by growing up with ReBoot on Saturday mornings and PIXAR films.

I really started with writing short stories and my art developed from a desire to take the characters from the words and give them form. I still write now and then, but not as much as I used to. I was told I was pretty good. Maybe I still am?

I have a Bachelor of Science in Computer Animation from Full Sail University and worked as a graphic designer in Virginia.

I am attempting to make a webcomic using characters I created in college. Standard action adventure fair, but I hope I can attract a few fans.

Feel free to tell me what you think about my work, DA's guidelines permitting of course. (And by that I of course mean: don't be a jerk about it if you don't like it).

Well...the last couple of months have just been lousy when it's all said and done. I get steady hours, but when I actually get a day off I'm so tired even video games seem too much to do. I haven't gotten my 3D printer working, which is the biggest worry because I hate to think I spent $600 on a glorified paperweight. I know it's up to me to get the ball rolling, but I honestly never expected working retail to be this much of a soul sucking enterprise. As unsatisfying as graphic art was at least at the end of the day I felt motivated to do some GOOD art instead of the mindless photo cropping I did day-in and day-out.
Maybe it's just the hours? Sure, I'm am NOT a morning person and prefer being able to sleep in and then stay up late. But I never get to see any of my friends anymore, and they really helped keep that creative spark going.

Rendering, rendering, rendering. I hate rendering.
It's so time consuming. But it does make everything look pretty.
