Hi ya, I know you like Christian comics so I know you'll love The Word for WORD Bible Comic, (Unabridged, historically accurate graphic novel of the Bible with a high view of scripture. For ages 15+)
To complete the first book I need your help, as I am raising funds on Kickstarter. My passion is to get God's Word in full into the hands of young believer and unbelievers and comic lovers of all ages, in the hope they will come to really know God. Please check it out at the KS page, it's going well but I still need lots of backers so I hope as a CCAS member you'll please pledge to support this project...
I pray that all is well in your world. Question Do you do your 3D animation for outside projects? if so how do you work? I have client/partner that has a number of Characters and she/we are looking to do a piece. Please contact me.
Happy Thanksgiving! I'm Scott A. Shuford, one of the new Board members. I wanted to stop in and say thanks for being involved with CCAS! If you have any input or would like to be involved with anything in particular, please let me and Eric Jansen (Membership Coordinator for CCAS) know by contacting us both through the site. We'll be making several announcements in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. To see a bit more about me, check out my profile here on the site. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better.
Consider the words of C.S. Lewis:
"If there lurks in most modern minds the notion that to desire our own good and to earnestly hope for the enjoyment of it is a bad thing, I suggest that this notion has crept in from Kant and the Stoics and is no part of the Christian faith. Indeed, if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that our Lord finds our desires, not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling around with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at sea. We are far too easily pleased."
Hey, man! John Burgin told me to look you up, as we share the same base of operations, here in Dallas.
I looked over your reel. It looks like you have some nice stuff, but a lot of times your lighting (black bgs seem to repeat throughout) fails to show off the work. On the first piece (spaghetti) your character is dressed in black, on a black bg. Why? Just throw those pieces back through the renderer with a 128 grey bg and you're golden.
I'm also unsure why your site says you've worked on feature films, but none of that work is on your reel, and none of the films are listed anywhere. Your call of duty work seemed like some of the nicest animation you had (thought I'm not sure which part[s] you worked on), but it doesn't show up till the end of the reel. Any particular reasoning behind that placement?
Anyhow, I look forward to getting to know you better through the site here. Hope you don't mind the unsolicited comments, but I'm always open to critiques of my work as well, so feel free to return the favor. :)
I checked out your website- you have some great stuff! Are you looking to do something aimed at a specific age group? You can check out stuff I've been doing at http://www.blackliststudios.com or look over my blog for more at http://blacklistedtom.blogspot.com/. I'd love to chat with you about possibly developing something. Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Once again- great stuff!
