|I like big butt's and I cannot lie...|
I'm not settled on the colours yet, they are for the most part, just a placeholder. I do however want to keep the orange as I want the ship (last of its kind) to stand out from the rest. I'll grunge it up when in the texturing phase to make it look like it's drifted through a big pile of space poo....

I'm thinking of hand drawing some images to put into the picture frames. The scene has a Yakuza theme to it so might try my hand at some oriental style pictures. It's also worth noting that I hope to make the corridor modular so that I can just use blender's mirror and array modifiers to create other scenes relatively fast, perhaps just change a few colours and textures around. In fact I'm hoping to do that for a lot of props. The ashtrays and cigarette packets took me a wee while to model so If I can be lazy and reuse them I will.

Fall City is coming along nicely although I'm jumping around from asset to asset to keep things fresh. I guess I'm putting off the character modeling for as long as I can as it's definitely a weak point of mine. One of the main characters 'Rose' is a young energy drink addicted semi-psychopath on a mission to save her mother, and she's going to do it with kick ass swords! Katana's to be more specific!
Here's Ebony and Ivory so far...

Obviously still early days yet, I'm thinking of sticking to the de-saturated colors. I'm rather fond of the Jin-Roh palette. The artist Bengal's colouring has always made me want to try something similar and I think this is the project I'm going to do it!

Well, I've really enjoyed my time learning the basics of HTML 5. This is the 3rd iteration of the site now, first in Wordpress which was quickly discarded for reasons I'll go into shortly. Second was a fresh bare-bones html version which was too bloated with design elements and fancy graphics which looked great, but not user friendly having to do a lot of recoding just to make a blog post. And now, here is Karribu.com mkIII.
So Wordpress. Nothing wrong with it, a great base with a lot of features. Originally I was really into search engine optimisation and to an extent I still am, and this is where wordpress really shines. But a little too much. Out of the box it’s decent and with all the addons you can get and there are several that are recommended, but once these are installed something strange happens.
It runs slower.
At least that was my experience twice now. I’ve spend weeks scouring the internet on ways to squeeze 1% out of the performance and bloody google site speed test really can make you pull your hair out. That’s when I threw Wordpress in the bin for now and embraced a pure very basic HTML version that is catered to just my needs. The site is around 70% done with just a few things to do, and I’#ve gone for a (hopefully) visitor friendly navigation.
It won’t be breaking any records in the google site score for now but I’m not overly concerned at this point in time and will look at it later on.
