Hiya,

Had some technical setbacks earlier this week as I was completing the the final two inserts. I finally managed (for the most part) to work around them, but this was also taken as an opportunity to re-evaluate what I was doing and how I was doing it. 

This resulted in going back to the start and reworking the design of the pieces (hand sketches) and I'll be spending today and tomorrow translating them to construction drawings that will be part of the final presentation - a personal throwback to the high school days in TD (Technical Drawing)

I'm very happy with the improvements and glad that things worked out the way they did because it means it's going to be a better final product than would have been had things continued.

Will be posting WIPs as things progress

🤙

HEXES Update

This weekend was to mark the end of the modeling stage of the insert, but some persistent issues I was having, particularly with the fourth insert, led me to discover that they were not going to open/work in other versions of Blender that weren't 2.92 alpha.

Admittedly disappointed, I do also see the bright side: starting again in a more stable version is also an opportunity to improve on the designs. This type of thing has been happening a lot this year and I have to believe it's working in my favour - making a better product.


2020 continues to strip some and distill other qualities, and it's mostly been to my benefit.
Persistence and Patience have become the name of this game.

With that I move to working on HEXES Vol 1.1
🤙

ALIENWARE M15 R3 GAMING LAPTOP TL;DR - I'm working towards getting a machine from a long-time favourite brands, Dell, which I recently found out bought Alienware, a brand I first considered. Such a confluence was a something I took as a sign and has become the motivation for something I once considered out of my league. I'm willing to put in all the hours to pay for it out-of-pocket. This is for anyone whom would like to support the cause. There's a second phase to this goal, but it will sound cheesy if I share it before even getting halfway. No obligation, I'm doing it regardless. 🤙

Completing my Formal Studies 2020 has been a difficult year for many - that cannot be denied. I was was on my way to completing my masters degree in architecture and due to circumstances (that aren't COVID-related) I made the decision to withdraw in service of protecting my mental health. I pivoted and started my journey towards becoming a Technical Artist and my YouTube channel serves to document that learning journey. This didn't, however, completely close my chapter in academia - I just needed to regroup and re-evaluate what I wanted and what having that degree would mean for me moving forward. I've since found an avenue I'd like to pursue with the intention of it complementing what I'm doing now. Finding funding (avoiding the loan route) isn't an easy one, but I'm exploring as many avenues that I can - This is one of them. The listed amount covers registration and full tuition. Everything else I'll hopefully be able to cover through odd-jobs and commissions. My goal is to raise these funds throughout 2021 and hopefully register for 2022.
