codemaster and some project

11 15 am

at home now and some updates, recently went to codemasters for interview for CAP training, wah lau eh, after 8 years they finally decided to interview me, i guess my skill so far where i shud be lol. anyway on thursday i walked into codemasters office for 1st time, and had interview with kiwi ivon smith and british  jason butterly i got some feedback on my renders and finished the interview.

i think what they say about games and cg animation industry is true, its hard to even walk thru the front door, try to get your foot into the door also hard ady liao, but so far i success to even get a ang moh to like 2 pieces of my render XD, good enough for me.

now for some more updates, I polishing the picnic and doing another project called checkpoint, checkpoitn is about my experience with immigration and how i felt about it.

picnic, at polishing stage now, later more polishing

checkpoint, current modeling project, progress most of the props and sets almost there now is uv unwrapping

checkpoint and update

1 30 am

at home working again, latest update, streamline replied and says i'm not sucessfull, so now i can focus on lemon sky and oktobor animation, i'm even thinking if i shud even bother trying silver ant by next month, 他妈的!

anyway here is my latest updates of my last piece of project

added more props and sets, still feel abit empty, i'm probably add 1 more prop 2moro, water tap with the tin barrel and then more sand bag with the solider back, I'm hoping to finish modeling by end of this week and start to uv unwrap by next week whether the modeling is finished or not.

2:12 am

i woke up at 11 30 pm, have my late dinner and then started to get working on my next project, checkpoint, the idea is from several places, Israel checkpoints, normal checkpoints, even mexico checkpoints, abit of immigration from my experience going thru immigration also.

want to share that it's hard to get thru checkpoint sometimes all because you're from different country, strict rules and different set of laws, below it the wip render.

please excuse the stupid lines there, i think it's a maya technical issue, i can photoshop it after i'm finished modeling texturing and rendering, i hope to able to fnished all the modeling by end of the week

picnic finished

6 04 am

woke up so early darn >.<

okei 2 things, I finished texturing picnic, now i got time for polishing, i will leave it alone for maybe 5 or 6 days then return to it, then my eyes can see where i can improve. next project i have is checkpoint, i dunno know what to do with it yet but maybe idea will build over time just need to be patient. and I'm also thinking to myself. i will attempt to apply to lemon sky as 3d modeller and oktobor animation as cg texture artist, nothing guarantee but it's worth a try.

above is the final progress, everything texture, lighting and rendering, left is the polishing

quite tired actually working on this project for so long.

Quantic Dream

3 46 am

just wake up in middle of the night and have something more to share, previously before i gone to auckland to further study i seen this game called Heavy Rain, it was new game experience i was told about done by this company called Quantic Dream, they give the player power to make any decision that decide how the story go.

they made heavy rain a few years ago now they make Beyong 2 Souls, it's about possesion, it reminded me of fear.

so fedup

3 01 pm

hm i been hearing about alot of complains back here lately ever sice i come back to malaysia, economy, education, govement administration, money, politicians, well politicians i can udnerstand lah, they behave like total retards on tv and video and are always looking after their image.

but to most m'sians i would like to say this, some of you mention you plan to migrate to overseas because you think you can get better, education, maybe even benefit and social benefit there, but you shud ask yurself , gave you yourself been  to the overseas? studied overseas befor, worked overseas or even lived than and feel happy, how do you know if the benefit can give you anythign and can stay happy there? in fatc are you relly so serious enough to migrate overseas? you can as long as you know that it's where you will be happy and can make a life for yourself and your family? overseas is different form Malaysia,  i'm not saying from tourist point of view, tourist only see the surface of the country how everything looks like from outside but never seen more indepth stuff like cost of living, affordable homes, jobs that can be gotten, social welfare and who can get them, wat type of education there is and whether it's suitable, economy there how is it like? political stability? yes even overseas isn't safe place, you don't know that.

no one should simply assume overseas education is better , safer and better quality of life than here, it's unfair to say it's better than malaysia, whether you lived there before or not, they thing is that it's only different from our country, different culture, language, work life, different education, goverment system, law, trade, different set of law and even different mindset from out typical malaysian mindset. i honestly think every malaysian looks down on our country alot and didn't appreciate what we have enough. if you think that our coutnry is very corrupted, unorganized, and going back to hell, you shuld really visit mynamar, burma, and the poor countries in africa, they look like they are living back in the middle ages wei, they are many years even behind vietnam and thailand, it's like a nation that cannot look after itself. seriously do youtube vidoes about them and try to think of your situation. go watch the movie called The Lady abotu Aung San Syuu Ki, the burmese women who married a british husmband and have 2 sons who return to burma to make change, you will understand that you have more rights than you actually asked for, where their own nation was run by an army and they have no rights at all.

i'm telling this only because i lived overseas and studied overseas before, i don't relly think like a typcial malaysian anymore, i'm tired of this old way of thinking, it's better to move forward than start to keep pushing peopel and insisit life here is not as suitable like we think
