Master Class at BlenderCat!! (Barcelona)
Hi!! I'm alive! :D As you know, I recently moved to Toledo, and since a few days ago, I have internet at home again! :)
The reason of this post, apart from keeping you updated, is to talk about BlenderCat, an event with Master Classes and conferences about 3D, and specially about Blender at Calella / Barcelona. A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being there giving a Master Class about character creation using Blender. I had a very fun time with the assistants and with the BlenderCat organizers, who treated me very very well :D
It was also a new and great experience for me. I've given conferences before, but not about Blender, and not having to make the work while explaining it. It was like one of my tutorials... but Live, in realtime, and also with people participating on it. I want to repeat this! When finished, a local TV asked for an interview, and here it is! It's on catalan, and I speak in spanish, but it's what we have!! Below you'll see a few photos of the event:
Definitely, I had a great time and met some cool and interesting people, apart of assisting to the rest of the conferences! :)
Now going to talk about some little updates :) One of them is that my graphics card is a bit "broken", and from time to time it goes off because of overheating :S I'm afraid of recording tutorials now because it probably goes to hell at middle tut, but I'll try!! And here is the next update: the first tutorial that I'll record at my new place will be about normal mapping and baking textures! And after that... we'll start with basic animation, rigging, skinning... that cool and difficult stuff that a lot of you have asked for on the emails :) Actually, this was in my planning since more than a year ago!! I just wanted to make sure that this part will be after covering all the very basics, as this is a bit more complex... but now it's time for it!
As a side note, I started to reply all of the emails that I had stacked into my inbox :S Sorry guys if it takes a lot of time to me to reply, but lately I've been really busy and a lot of time without internet at home, so I have a big amount of emails that needs an answer. I already filtered the ones that I think have priority. I'd like to answer them all, but it's phisically impossible, so I need to select the ones that really needs an answer, and they're still a lot of them! :S This is why I apologize if your email doesn't get an answer soon. From now on, I'll try to answer all your doubts again, but please, if I don't, understand that I haven't lots of free time, but believe me, I try!! I have emails waiting for an answer since about 3 months ago, I'm sorry for that :( Anyway, even I can't answer them, I read them all for sure, and I appreciate them a lot, thank you guys! ;)
And finally, just before going to sleep (I really need it xD), just tell you that I created a Google+ Page for Blendtuts!! I have to stylize it a little yet, but I'll publish there new post and tutorials, and of course, if you want to follow me personally, for knowing what I'm up to, or just the funny, crappy, crazy or interesting things that I share, just go ahead to my Google+ Profile.
Take care, and next tutorials will start coming very soon, now that I'm addapted to my new place (now I only need time, as I spent most of my life working at the office hehe). See you!!
