Clearly, its been a long time since I've really been active on DeviantART but I have been progressing steadily, I feel as a 3D artist, and more specifically these days as a Technical Artist so this sites relevance is not lost on me. I thought that since I may need some constructive criticism from the likes of the people I know on here it might be time to explain what I've been up to and what I'm planning.
Basically, around August/September last year the Game Developer (Wicked Witch Software) that I was employed by on a long term, full time basis had to make serious cut backs and as I'd gotten my work on the project we had done I was one of those cut backs. It wasn't all bad, since I'd been working far too hard to stay sane and I got a handy payout.
Up until that point I'd been working more and more on the tools side of art creation, trying to smooth the flow from visual 3D art to useable real time art. Only a minimal amount of this work is actually demonstratable so far on a site like Deviant ART thanks to a combination of Non-Disclosure Agreements and my annoying habit of learning stuff half way through developing something (which leads me to try other, newer and more exciting things).
Of course at that point I went job hunting and in order to assist in this I set up a website for the sake of a portfolio, in a format I could control. Previously I'd used DeviantART for that but now that I'm an experienced professional I thought it only logical to have my own site. I only spent a week on that though, before I ended up knee deep in other projects. The next major project for me was working for 01 Animation on a new, real time retail concept for Adidas and Intel but this was only a short term contract and so now, while not exactly on the hunt for work, I have, I'll say a lot of time for personal projects. Naturally one of those is updating and improving my website.
