How To Make a Tim

Tim - Tutorial Series
Have you ever wanted to create a Tim Burton style image or animation but don't know where to get started? Well look no further my friends, I have just the resource for you! Over nine hours of instructional goodness covering such topics as modelling, texturing, rigging, and animating, using the amazing open source majesty known as blender.

And how much would you be willing to pay to make your Tim Burtonesse dreams come true? Well you can hang on to your monies, since I'm here to tell you that thanks to the extremely copacetic David Ward you can watch and learn gratis. Such a good guy.

But seriously, Mr. Ward is a very generous soul distributing this series to the general public. For the novice to intermediate blender user this tutorial series is chock full of good information.

It Is The One Armed Man

I haven't posted anything for a nice spat of time, the (main) reason being I'm down to a single paw. I sustained an injury about four weeks ago and it's really put a damper on my creative pursuits. Especially since it was my dominate (right) arm.  I managed to break the scaphoid bone in my wrist, as well as dislocate my pisiform bone (at least i think that was the one). I had surgery to put things back where they belong and now I'm sporting some new hardware. The slim wire will be removed in a couple more weeks. The screw I get to keep. It's been a slow and fairly painful recovery and I just haven't felt like doing much of anything at all. Things are starting to get a little more manageable, but it's still a hassle doing everything one handed. At any rate I hope to build up some additional momentum and get back to blogging a little more consistently.
