What is Evil O.S. ?

Evil Operating System is a small Artist Guild. Here we talk about our work in detail (its creation, our inspirations, others involved, etc.). We take on art in any form (painting, sculpting, graphic design, tailoring, printmaking, comic books, martial arts, film, etc.) and show to the world. Also, the group attends conventions and culture festivals/events all over the island of Montreal. We hope to inspire others and perhaps even rule the world with our kick-arse artwork!

Enjoy your stay folks!

Shaky shaky!

Well, the semester ended 5 days ago. I have no final exams since my classes don't cover finals like the other general courses. By the way, I changed my screen name. People still call me Ein or Lia as they're used to, but my new family at the labs nicknamed me Dr.Meow after unusual circumstances... ya-


Sorry I'm late posting stuff again. The semester got a little tight at the end, but I do have the work I promised to post up. I'll just batch list them in this post now.

3D For Your Eyes!

Here's a few things I made during the semester, unfortunately we didn't cover modeling organic characters. So that's something I'm doing this summer break along with rigging & skinning. I made the textures myself from scratch. For the Sylph Fighter, I merged the concept of the old SegaCD Silpheed and the Xbox360 Project Sylpheed ships, as kind of homage. Though, I still had to model and texture it from scratch. There's more angles at the Flickr gallery, if you want.

Here's the other panoramas I promised too. I hope I didn't miss any distortions; those took a while to fix. And yes, that's my room down there; I used it as a test shot. Most are places nearby in the neighborhood. All of the images below were color corrected and enhanced.

My Room - 'nuff said

An area in the nearby park.

Another area in the same park, though taken on a different day.

The relay and bleachers, also on a different day.

A parking lot converted into a garden... I think.

Well that's about it. I have a few more things I can post up, but I'll have to prepare them for publishing first. I'm not sure when I'll post again. Maybe I'll have Jeff put something up.

Oh, one other thing, a friend of mine asked me to join her company for a little production work. I can't exactly elaborate on what, but I'm seriously considering it. I'll be paying them a visit soon. I'm not sure when I'll get started on those summer projects on the sidebar. Soon, soon.

Hang tight!

Fresh New Start

Out of the closet and into the tumble-dryer

Hey everyone! It's been a while. Jeff and I entered a 3D Animation and CGI course a while back and we've been busy ever since. Sorry for not updating in a while. All we seem to put up are meeting calls for the group... and those were a year ago. Sad. Need to do a few of those again.

Well, what's up?

I've gotten myself into a bit of amateur photography. Thanks to our Digital Video and Photography class. Unfortunately for me, I still don't have the bling bling to afford a fancy camera. So, I've been working with restrictions. Mainly, I've been enjoying the panoramic photography part. They're quite big, but here's a few samples:

Our first and second year lab. This is where we work and chill most of the time.

The same lab, but from another angle. Mind the large fan,
it can get very hot in there in the summer.

The third year lab. They get their own since they can get quite busy.
They don't need us peons breathing behind their necks.

This is the hallway on the same wing.

I corrected a few shots for noise and grain, and I also adjusted the saturation, brightness and contrast. With the help of a tripod, these are cake to make and can be pretty fun.

I've also gotten into 3D modeling like Jeff, and I'm now learning texturing. Currently, I have an assignment which deals with such. Expect me to post the roughs and finished results of those in the next few weeks.

Well, I'm off for the night. There's still some animation homework to fine tune that needs my attention.
