Well yeah? Well MY phone makes instant coffe!

So, my boyfriend and I just came across THE most elaborate advertisement for something COMPLETELY different from what we thought it was.

Check it out here:

And after you're done, click you're done, laugh, rinse and repeat.

I have to admit, it was pretty good.


Oh, and the pub went well, my skateboard was part of the "best overall" group. There was no 'real' first prize and such. And the sculptures weren't even at the pub to be judged... *mumble....gotmyhopesup...*
But the pub was fun, I'm gonna try some fancier drinks in the future!

Well, gotta go!

Ninja Pub!

Hey bloggers!

The next Ninja Pub is approx the 19th of this month.

And my skateboard and sculpture are being voted on (with everyone else's of course) at the pub.

What is a Ninja Pub you ask?

A Ninja Pub is hosted once every month/2 months on Seneca@York campus, at the Hive, our campus bar. DMA students and faculty get to hang out with each other, and sometimes there's a presentation.

So wish me luck with the competition, I hear there's a pretty good prize for fav sculpture and fav skateboard.

I know my skateboard wasn't the best of all of them, so I'm putting all my money on Rugi! (He is my sculpture I've been posting on the blog here if you forgot, or haven't been on my site for too long).

Well, gotta jet.

Flash Research Assignment

Hello Mr. Tedford,
I hope you enjoy my research on Flash Symbols.
(Sorry to bore you bloggers out there, or maybe this might be helpful. In that case, you're very welcome :) )

There are 4 different types of symbols in Flash are:
Movie Clips

Movie Clips
To convert an object into a movie clip symbol, you must first highlight the object. Then you can do three things, right click and click Convert to Symbol, click Modify and then Convert to Symbol, or use the shortcut F8.

They are reusable pieces of flash animation that consist of one or more graphics and or button symbols. So they are flash movies in a flash project. They have their own non-restricted timeline (they can have as many frames and layers as they'd like, just like the actual project you're working on) that plays independent of the main movie's timeline. The benefit to using movieclips is that you can control them from actionscript (the program language in Flash), you can change their dimensions, position, color, alpha, and other properties, you can also duplicate and delete the clips.

To convert an object into a button symbol, you must first highlight the object. Then you can do three things, right click and click Convert to Symbol, click Modify and then Convert to Symbol, or use the shortcut F8.

These are used for timeline navigation.They add interactivity to the movie and respond to mouse clicks, key press, rollovers and or rollout, and other actions. You choose which graphics will respond depending on button information (Up, Over, Down, and Hit), and then assign actions to the instance of a button. They have 4 frames in their timeline: one each for the up, over and down function, and one to define the hit area of the button.

To convert an object into a graphics symbol, you must first highlight the object. Then you can do three things, right click and click Convert to Symbol, click Modify and then Convert to Symbol, or use the shortcut F8.

They are reusable images that are used mainly to create animations. Any drawn vector, plain text, imported bitmap image, or a combination can be converted into a single controllable object: as a graphic symbol. They are only one frame long.

To create text, simply click and drag where you're working using the text tool. Then click inside the text box to create the text you would like to display in your Flash.

You can have either Static, Input, or Dynamic text. Static text is used for titles, labels, or anything else that will appear in your movie. Input text options are used for user input, like obtaining a username or other information in Flash. The third type of text is a Dynamic text. They're used to display text that changes dynamically when the flash runs.

'Till next time.

P.S.(I'll have a domain in the near future, I'll post the link as soon as it's up and running)

It's DONE!

Hey bloggers!

I just handed in my assignment today! I'm officially done school!
And I'm kinda sad...This semester was super cool. SUPER STRESSFUL! But awesome!

So I have NO idea how many hours I put into Rugi, but enough for me to be proud of my second sculpy model attempt. Believe me, it's ALOT better than my first one, it shall never see the light of day. Ever.

Here's some shots of Rugi with objects, holding the sword and sheath, and him in his nice little box.

Well, I guess that's all...I'll post some more stuff from second semester on here, and send a link to my own site that I shall be getting next semester.

Don't forget! For a larger images, click HERE

Final Skateboard Time!

Hello again bloggers!

Just wanted to post the pictures of my skateboard, all finished and stuff :)

I got the illustrator file sent to a guy who lives in downtown Toronto and he printed it on a giant sticker basically. Not shiny, but matte finish, which I liked a lot more. And I also bought a blank board for a cheap price :)

So, for a grand total of $40...Here it is!

You can see that there is a bit of white on the left side. Story is, that the guy at the print shop printed it too small so the template is clearly visible, so I went for sacrificing the left side of the skateboard with some white. I'm happy overall, I mean, how many people get their art made into a skateboard?

I'll post the finished and glossed Rugi as well soon, so look forward to that.

'Till next time bloggers

Sculpture Update Pt. 4

Hello again fellow bloggers!

I'm almost done my sculpture! I just have to glue everything together and put Rugi in his box so I can hand it in on Friday.

So I'll start with this picture:

I've spray painted the entire sculpture white with some automotive paint. This way, the colours will pop out more.
And as you can see I've already started painting, I'm being messy now because I can do detailing later. Right now I just want to get the base colours down. Here I've got the beige bandage and the light blue belt part of Rugi's outfit started.

Now I've got the navy blue paint done for the pants and Rugi's shoulder cloth.

And here's the ponytail that broke :(
I've come up with a fix for that, don't worry!

Here's the(almost) final product of Rugi, minus the ponytail.

And a back shot :)

Here's a shot of the sword and sheath as well. I LOVE this sword!
And the tassle that's on Rugi's sword, I'm using embroidery thread and beads from the dollar store :)

Here's a shot of the back of the sculpture as well, with the new design that I added to the pants.

I used a stencil for the design that I made with a piece of a sketchbook page.
I decided the front of the pants were very detailed with the folds, and the back was plain, so I added this design to make the back interesting too.

Here's a shot of the stencil:

Nothing too special...

And here's everything pre gloss:

That's all the photos I'll be putting up about the sculpture until I can post some final pieces.

Oh! Here's afew shots of the box:

As always, you can get all these pictures on my Photobucket Account.
