So after obsessing over plants, trees and nature in general this year, I got myself focused and produced a series of four DVDs for The Gnomon Workshop on how to create natural environments with Maya. With over thirty hours of lecture, they are intense and in-depth, and will hopefully help a wider range of 3D artists delve into this awesome category of work. While many of you may think that creating this type of work is 'hard', it is really a matter of dedicating the time to master the tools in a methodical and efficient way. Granted, it is a big commitment to do so, but if you are passionate about it, the time passes by in a blur and, before you know it, you are creating things that you did not think possible. I hope that the training I produce helps inspire people to take the plunge into the world of 3D, whether you want to work in film, games or any other industry where 3D has become a critical creative tool.

Anyhow, for more info on the DVDs, check out the website: www.thegnomonworkshop.com

This is for fun.

Supposedly The Phone Will Ring
Right After You Do This.

















Just read the little stories and
Think of a wish as you scroll all
The way to the bottom. There is
A message there - then make your
Wish.















No attachment on this one.

Stories

















I'm 13 years old, and I wished
That my dad would come home from
The army, because he'd been having
Problems with his heart and right
Leg It was 2:53 p .m.. When I made
My wish. At 3: 07 PM . (14 minutes
Later), the doorbell rang, and
There my Dad was, luggage and all!!





I'm Katie and I'm 20 and I've been
Having trouble in my job and on the
Verge of quitting. I made a simple
Wish that my boss would get a new
Job. That was at 1:35 and at 2:55
There was an announcement that he
Was promoted and was leaving for
Another city. Believe me...this
Really works!!!









My name is Ann and I am 45 years
Of age. I had always been single
And had been hoping to get into a
Nice, loving relationship for many
Years. While kind of daydreaming(and right after receiving this email)
I wished that a quality person would
Finally come into my life. That was at
9:10 AM on a Tuesday. At 9:55 AM
A FedEx delivery man came into my
Office.He was cute, polite and
Could not stop smiling at me. He
Started coming back almost everyday(even without packages) and asked me
Out a week later . We married 6
Months later and now have been
Happily married for 2 years.

What a great email it was!!

















Just scroll down to the end, but
While you do, think of a wish.
Make your wish when you have completed
Scrolling. Whatever age you are, is the
Number of minutes it will take for your
Wish to come true. Ex.you are 25 years
Old, it will take 25 minutes for your wish
To come true).
















However, if you don't send this to
People in 5 minutes, you will have bad
Luck for years!!

Go for it!!!
!









SCROLL DOWN!!!!

Now come true in your age minutes.

People, other than the 5 that you
Already have to send to, something
Major that you've been wanting
Will happen.
