I�m afraid I won�t have much to show on these pages for a while.
Too much work during the week, too many issues to keep track of and not much time in the evening to do anything else than chat around a cup of coffee and blow some steam off in the tropical battlefield of Far Cry. This is the longest �low� phase I had to go through for a long time.
Usually, creativity cycles go up and down every other month. High phases are spent cranking one image after the other, until I run out of steam. Low phases are usually the occasion to catch up on video games I set aside for rainy days, and work on the website if I have time. I have enough games to keep on like this for a while, although I can already feel the itch of creating new 3D scenes.
Maybe it is the influence of spending some time every night on keeping an eye on the Vue forum at Renderosity… although things have been running smoothly over there for a while. Hopefully, being a moderator won�t turn out to be such a distraction I can�t find the time to work on more images.
In the meantime, working on the EERIE alumni website has been an interesting experience. First exposure to PHP and MS SQL, blended together with a touch of Cold Fusion. The development of that site is going smoothly so far. I may even go on reviving some of my old pages soon. The next site in line will be the Cthulhu gallery.
Working on the EERIE website showed me how disconnected from my friends in France I have become. It is a great occasion to reconnect however. I didn�t realise how much I missed that until I started catching up with what everybody has been doing for the past few years. I feel like I just came out of a long period of blur once again. Seeing what everybody I used to know have become makes me appreciate even more what I have now. Things are not so bad after all.
