do you really want to hurt me?

my nephew Devin commissioned me awhile back to start creating some t-shirt designs for his newly created HighTee clothing co.

this first one i created was an idea he approached me with in the classic Varga pinup girl style which is a look i always have loved. i will post more as new ones come along and please visit his etsy page to see what items are available:

lost and found

i was culling through some photos a few weeks back and came across one from a session i had posted months ago and and it was an image i had failed to post and that i failed to even share with the model herself after it was edited

this was part of the series i did that involved the ouija board and the scull shots that you can see here:

this was my day of immense frustration when i had extreme flash issues yet this one was one of the few occasions when the flashes did what i wanted them to do. this was actually shot during a very bright and sunny day, gotta love high-speed sync when it all works like it is supposed to :)

virgo has risen

the final image from the "virgo" series as she has now hit her zenith and is enveloped in all her golden glory

this one is my fave in this series and i really wish i had created a BTS video for this one but sadly i did not. i will try to be more proactive in the future and remember to capture my editing sessions

as always, if you have any questions please feel free to ask away. also, if anyone is interested in learning photoshop or even how to create composites like this i am available for individual teaching sessions either in person or online, message me for rates and availability

pistons are pumping

i am trying to create a motor piston in cinema 4D and managed to figure out how to do it using connectors and a motor to make the whole thing rotate (see video)

while it looks great and runs smooth, i need to be able to regulate the speed of it and make it a consistent speed much slower than it is currently running from start to finish. right now it slowly reaches it's full speed after a few turns and i need it at max speed right away. i have messed with the motor's speed and torque, but it still either slowly starts and then reaches max speed or it is too weak and won't drive the shaft around at all

my question is, is there a way to make a motor ignore all mass of the objects under it's power and just simply turn at a steady rate? or should i rig this differently so that i can use perhaps some sort of IK tags to make it work the way i want and control the speed more fluently?

i do not know how to use espresso so unless someone has a simple tutorial using that or could rig a simple test scene for me to see, then that is not an option either

thanks in advance

virgo rising...again

another take on the "virgo rising" session, this time taking her into the ethereal realm and keying on the idea that she is an air sign

love never dies

don't wait for that one day out of the year to tell your significant other that you care about them. don't measure that love with material things but rather show them that you care for them always and forever and give them your heart every single day

with that being said...happy VD to all the hopeless romantics out there

this shot was a valentine's day present i made for my wife Miki a few years back, i know i drive her crazy sometimes–all the time–but she knows how much she means to me...love you honey

...enjoy

virgo rising

so last week i filled your stream with some very dark and brooding pieces and i am going to give you just the opposite this week

this shot–along with the others i will be posting this week–were taken during the same session as the series i posted last week. same model and HMUA for both shoots and it was fun–and challenging–to pulloff two completely different looks within the short amount of time we were together

Angejolie approached me about doing a Virgo inspired shoot and we discussed it being very light and airy and ethereal and the results are what you seeing based on that. the headpiece is one of her creations and the golden, glowing makeup and flowing hair from HMUA Priscilla added the perfect compliment to the overall look
