Griffith Observatory day!

Another beautiful day in LA and We decided to check out the city from the Griffith Observatory. What a great idea! It is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the view. I would recommend the Planetarium too! We can actually learn some cool things about the stars there. I just loved it!

Siggraph 2013

Siggraph 2013 was very special because I had the opportunity to work for SideFX. I've been at Siggraph before (2008, 2010 and 2012) as a visitor so this time was for sure from a different point of view ;) Parties were awesome too.

more Z-Brush

I'm feeling more comfortable in Z-Brush now and I have an amazing teacher, Young Choi. My head modeling had some huge improvements thanks to him! :P

Saturday, February 23, 2013


Yup! Ok, so... I`m not a modeler and I didn`t want to take this class at school but I could not drop it. Besides animation and rigging I`m also trying to learn character FX in Houdini so... why should I get into Z-Brush too? Doh! o.O
Anyways, I had to add the class and open the software for the first time this week and guess what?! I loved it! :P I had no idea how cool this software is and I had fun playing around with it. This is my first test Lol! 
Still trying to understand the navigation :)

Today I am starting a new chapter in my life... I became Vegetarian. I just don`t want to be part of this system that treats other species in this planet only as food. I felt guilty and ashamed. It is a hard decision because I was born and raise eating meat but If it was easy, it wouldn't be call sacrifice. 
This was my first time at Trader Joe`s as a vegetarian and I am really happy with so many options we found. I guess it wont be that hard to adopt this new life style.
