I’m working on my first iPhone App and all the characters and scenes are in C4D and that is why I did not have any posts recently. Also, I really feel guilty cause my goal was to have a post every single day, but it’s been about two weeks that I didn’t write anything.
I promise promise promise to add bunch of new character tutorials in C4D. I have to admit that I really love this software, it is so fun to work with, although I do not call it very intuitive, but once you work with it, you kind of get the idea.
Also, here the other challenge that I have right now, since my background is toy design, in my app whatever I design, look preschool! and my audience will not be preschoolers!!!! so, this is the main reason that I’m not active on 4D Frog these days, but as soon as I’m done with the app, I’ll have some post about how did I do that.
Please come back and check the site.
To me, always ancient arts are very inspiring. They are so pure. This sculpture is in Metropolitan Museum NYC. And below is the museum description. Hope you like it.
“Royal in its posture, this beautifully dressed figure probably once displayed a mirror between its knees and raised arms. The mirror would have been made of sections of iron pyrite polishes to a dark sheen. When set a wood or stone frame, the pyrite sections provided a reflective surface, the chief use of which was divinatory. Mirror were precious objects, and one big enough and elegant enough to be held by this imposing figure was as significant as its holder. The mirror bearer would have presented the mirror only to powerful Maya personages for its auguries. The mirror-bearer is sumptuously dressed in a kilt, or hip clot, with a patterned band and fringe along the bottom. The kilt is kept in place by a wide belt of a different pattern, carefully tied at the waist. A long sash of similar decoration is worn across the shoulders and tied at each side. The jewelry consists of grand ears ornaments that begin with spools in the ears and cascade down to the shoulders, ending in long-nosed profile heads. On the chest a small mask like ornament is held aloft by the mirror-bearer’s joined hands.
