Broken Links and hotlink protection enabled blog title

Binary files are protected from hot-linking.

Hello, denizens of the internet! You are probably wondering why are you seeing this page instead of that magical download file button, aren’t you? You have received this page instead of the binary because external websites, forums, and YouTube content creators are trying to hot-link to files on my site while taking credit for hosting them. If you are the 3rd party which made the link. Here is what you can do to correct the problem:

  • You could link to the blog containing my binary in an effort to give bloggers like us credit for hosting the file. If you link to the blog and your readers click on the download in that blog. They will receive the file!
  • You can download and host the binaries themselves through whatever freeware mal-ware infested pay-per-click based hosting service there is.
  • If you DO care about your readers/subscribers like we do; You could host your own binaries by paying for a hosting service. Many of the binaries I mention in blog articles are not owned by us. They exist simply as a convenience for others who visit my blog articles.

To any readers seeing this page we apologize for not giving you the binary but these actions are necessary as we are a blog. Not a file distribution service.

NOTE: In the event, you are seeing this page even after visiting one of our articles containing binary files. Contact us! as it may be a security error with the site.

Read on if you want to know more of the technical details as to why we have to do this. Read the FAQ if you want to know more about what this site is.

The Green Book – Sketches from 2000

Sketch Book 2000 - Title.

Sketches from 2000 – A.K.A. The Green Book.

Here you will find the archive for what is known as the ‘green book’. There is no significance about a green sketchbook except for the fact that it was on sale at the time I purchased it. No matter, here is where you will find a lot of the sketches from the late 2000 era.

A lot of this was made when I was going to M.A.T.C. for a while and I had some classes in between and there was a 1-hour delay between classes. so one hour a day for a year, and I filled an entire sketchbook. A lot of the sketches are just random thoughts and projections getting used to inking and all of that fun stuff. This is part 1 of 2 of the green book series and if you would like to go to the next section you may click here.

Rhino Head complete full Color Artwork

Rhino - Title

Scraps of a rhino character made.

Rhino. For this sketch, I decided to ink and color and throw together a backdrop in lightwave using an array multiplier and then colored one of my quickly inked drawings on top. This species and type of character does not often get much for draw-time as they should.  The basic inking was done with a pencil for the raw sketches. afterward, using a Sumi-E pen just for inking and to see how my pen was operating at the time.

Flay / Hyena Colored Art

Flay the Hyena - Title.

Flay the hyena!

What started out as just a simple sketch evolved into completed pictures and 3-d artwork of a character I dubbed “Flay” the Hyena. I was toying with the concept of cel-shading and seeing if I can do shading using only material properties and no special texture UV maps. See the results for yourself. Nearing the end my 3-d program lightwave was making decent hand-colored pictures.

Final Fight – Lizard and Parrot

Final Fight Title.

Lizard vs. Parrot -The first attempt of 3-d and 2-d art.

Not much data was left to post of the progress of this picture except for the fact that this was one of my first attempts at hybrid artwork. That is with hand-drawn characters in the foreground with 3-d rendering in the background. Total time to render was approximately 4-5 hours on a Pentium II 400Mhz processor. Lizard fighting parrot action!
