123D Creature : iPad App

Last night I gave 123D Creature a whirl. I gotta say, at first I was conbaffled... but as i started to play around, I started to figure it out. 

At first, I just wanted to make anything... just to see how the app worked..

Then I decided to try to make something in particular. So I made this giraffe.

I like the lights and how you apply the textures. Very similar to 123D Sculpt but more powerful. Less guessing and more exacting.

Critters 3.0

Pretty sure we are on version Critter 3.0...

Introducing Cork Critters!!

Miniature street art ready to be found or washed down the sewer.. whichever comes first...


After working on these last night I decided I'm much to lazy and blind to paint these little things. Instead, I'll create the art on the iPad, print out the art as labels and mass produce these little guys.

(see label examples below)

Better art, less work. Thanks for the tip, Andy Warhol.

123D Sculpt

One of the iPad apps I've started playing around with called 123D Sculpt. It's like having a little virtual ball of clay and pulling on it till it looks like something.. or sort of looks like something :)

iPads and Flying Planes

I don't much like to fly. Well, that's not true. I don't mind flying. i'm more afraid of crashing. Something about not being in control and being squished into some little tube going 500 miles na hour doesn't sit well with me. 

To avoid panic, i like to draw on my iPad. Here are a few from my Flying Plane series... Above: Draw to NYC

Flying back to Raleigh from NY. I was pretty tired ;)

I think I made this one flying back to Raleigh from the NAEA conference in Texas

Pretty sure this was painted on the way to Texas, going to the NAEA conference.
