So I think I will updated every Wednesday.  Does that sound cool?  It's hump day, so might as well.

As you can see, I made a new logo for my blog.  Let me know what you think (I do plan on going back and fixing it up, just got lazy towards the end).

I don't really have much new to post, but for those that have seen my Zombie Amish film, I used charcoal backgrounds for a little bit more of a gritty texture.  Here are some of the better ones, I feel.

Amish homes, etc.

Side of the road

In town


Well, I think this will be a rather short post.  I plan to have my demo reel up and moving by next post, as well as a working logo for my work.  My goal is to have at least one finished piece of work every week, even if it's just a still drawing.  Here's a little cartoony drawing to end on.  Happy days!

Future projects

Hey all, just sharing my thoughts and ideas with the blogging front.  Probably in the next few days or a week, I'm going to start boarding an idea for my senior thesis.  It will involve two characters of mine, Pan and Callisto (brother and sister), and I plan on going for some trippy, psychological stuff in my piece (as well as a bit of dialogue).  Anyway, I'll pop it by periodically to see if I can get feedback.

As far as other things go, I'm working at the school, and hopefully in downtime, can work on other projects on the side.  Definitely plan on doing some test animation (2D and 3D), practicing modeling techniques, and general drawing/concept art.

Also, here's a link to my junior piece, if you care to look.  I'm not sure who all sees this page, but check it out!  I'll be posting up a demo reel soon as well, so that will be something else.

New blog

Hey all.  My name is Sam Troyer and this is my first time having a blog of sorts (unless you count Xanga or any of those odd social networking sites from past times;  I guess they were ahead of their time).  I mainly just want to have an outlet to post my work, maybe reach out to fellow bloggers and share interesting stories of mine.  Hopefully I won't leave this by the wayside like I have so many other websites.

Here's a link to my vimeo account.  This is where I'll post most of my film and animation work, so I'll just link to this when something updates.   I just recently finished my junior animation piece called The Zombie Amish.  Anyway, you can check it out for yourself, it's all there!

In the meantime, while I wait to get more of my work up here, have a look at this bathroom I modeled in Maya.
