CGhub challenge

Hey guys and gals, there is currently a competition going on at CGhub that anyone can join in. It involves using mudbox which is a digital sculpting program. The challenge is to create a warrior concept and using the mudbox software make a digital sculpt out of it. The software is free to use for the duration of the contest. I figured this would be relevant to us as we're a class exploring new media.  Digital sculpture and 3d printing is still a fairly new form that has been taking off lately so if anyone is interested in joining in the fun, professional or beginner to 3d modeling this is a great opportunity to learn a new software and have a chance at possibly winning something for your efforts.

The Crowtoriun

Hey guys sorry for not being there. I had to deal with a very bad case of medical mess today. I'm doing a little better, but anyway when I was able to get up and work I decided to upload and make the site available for everyone to access and use on their own time. I wanted to make this a weekly event and kind of thing and the site is based off old Dungeouns and dragons mixed with choose your own adventure, making it into a hybrid of a story and a game. If anyone wants to check the coding or look at the art files up close the files are there for you to use(as long as you're not profiting from it of course hehe) I left in the words on both the pages and text as aI tested it on a few people and some prefered to have one or the other or both. I personally am not too sure about it, so any input if at all possible would be lovely.

Also for the love of god, do not use comcast personal webhosting to host your site, it is a really painful process to get everything working, because you have to set permisions for each file one at a time.
I found a great way to how I can remember my vacation forever in a new unique way. So my story was the couple of days I had on the boat.

SigNIT Spy Action!!

Bringing you guys some old-fashioned hand drawn action to the web!!
"My Mother" website is based in the idea of cultural changes and how this can determinate the career the child end doing. Also, the website illustrates the stereotype we some times have when think about different cultures.     

Rebound Game

we've all been there. you got dumped! and it sucks superbad hardcore and sometimes the mourning process can be considerable. eventually, though, you have to put away the twinkies, dry your eyes, and put yourself back on the market. my project is about getting back on the dating wagon. in my REBOUND GAME, you hit the clubs, end up trading numbers with three mr. right NOWs and you get to choreograph your perfect rebound date. :)

A Brief Travel Guide: Famous Cities around the World

what to do...

Wednesday, October 13, 2010


I decided to do the assignment on a group of characters from a story I was working on last semester. This is a brief introduction into the world of "Pink Cathedral". I wanted it to resemble my own video game character selection screen.

What if?

Hello everyone,

my non-linear story is a funny approach to my life. I have always wondered what would happen if I would never came to USA. What alternative life I would have in Poland? What would happen if I would decide not to date my current husband, who was the only reason I decided to stay in US. So the story is about my potential guess of what could happen, and you can decide what journey I will take:). I drew very simple, child like drawings to make it light and funny story, because in reality all those decisions were hard and life changinng in the ways I did not even imagine.

Hope you know your horror movie trivia!!
