Major Matthius Johan Shmidt of the 6th Imperial Army,

I hate the way that even a decent scanner simply cannot pull of the fine gradations of a pencil drawing... oh well.


  1. Hi Big Fella,

    Phill Hosking is up and blogging - it's early days, but here's the link...


  2. Hey all, I'm Liam, a third year student.

    Everyone is now using blogger on our course, and there's a nice community growing with people following each others blogs and helping each other with issues. Not everyone is linked up to each other though, and I thought a central blog for the course which everyone could post to would be a pretty nice idea. I've made one at this address:


    It would also mean that rather then relying on the slow blogfeed and having to surf through the 70 odd blogs that we have between us, we can just come straight to this one.
    With a large knowledge base between everyone a lot of issues could be resolved fairly quickly, and so any problems can be posted here, and we will all have quick access to them.
    Also if anyone has found any good tutorials, has started a new project blog, has had a breakthrough they're pleased with, or whatever else, they can whack it on here.
    Just put a subject in the post title (eg. ISSUE - Blend Shapes, TUTORIAL - Advanced Rigging etc) and blog away.

    If you want to join comment in the first post with your email address (can't do it via linking) and I'll send you an author invite. If you don't want your email address published then just send me one (liamscarlino@hotmail.com) saying that you want in.
    When you've joined post saying hello, a link to your blog and whatever else you want.

    Cheers, hopefully hear from you all soon!

    Liam x

  3. Hi Big Fella, you've gone very quiet? Too busy Christmas shopping, no doubt! Hope all is well? I know your contract is up, but you're a welcome presence in the bloggosphere, so don't feel you have to suddenly disappear... "where's Simon?" said the first years... :-)

  4. Hey there Phil, been is a bit of a fug what with lots of work and very little time to chill and a niggling head cold that refuses to break and just makes me want to sleep, also uprooting the computer to the bedroom to make way for a Christmas tree hasn't been helpful I have been flicking across the blogs when I have a chance and they seem to be progressing nicely.

    I'll start posting again when my brain feels that it is saying something useful, rather than garbled meanderings ;)I would post my Tableux vivant stuff up but I think it would be rather embaressing now that Alan has blessed them with a lot more modelling skills than I had at that stage lol, I'll see if I can dig up some of concepty stuff though.

  5. ah yes - the family Christmas looms... good luck with that! :-)
