Conceptart.org and Massive Black hosted a workshop up here in Seattle recently and I got to be an instructor. It was super duper cool. I met a lot of great people and got to hang with some of my favorite artists in person. I cannot stress how incredibly nice everyone was. You'd expect some ego from these folks, they're good enough to have them, but there was none. So damn fun.
Anyway, my main demo was a disaster. Noting would take hold on the screen. Major flop, really, really bad. It left me feeling very disappointed with myself. Like my whole goal of improving this year was a miserable failure. I wasn't going to go to the next two days I was so upset. Luckily I did, and redeemed myself a bit. Here's those demo pieces. They were done pretty quick, and you can see my short cuts ( I kept fucking up the chickens feet, so BOOTS FOR YOU!), and what I focused on, but there's still a few ok things on there. The brain eating fella was for the thunderdome (topic=Dream Devourer), Jason Chan annihilated us. I mean ANNIHILATED.
