 Topic 4: Open Discussion

Club Mixer

     Roger Fuentes, Treasurer, suggested that during the Club Mixer next Thursday that we approach the other clubs about remaking their banners for them. This provides excellent work to put on any member’s artist resume.

     Michael Lewis Miller, Advisor, suggested that during the Club Mixer we, as club members, wear something as a club. Jarno, club member, suggested we wear matching arm bands and Michael Miller suggested we wear matching colored t shirts.

Club Mixer Attire Voting:

Grey T-Shirt: 2 Yes 7 No
Day Glow Orange Arm Band: 11 Yes 1 No

Based on votes from the club, we will be wearing Day Glow Orange Arm Bands to the Club Mixer. Our lovely advisor, Michael Miller, has agreed to bring some fabric that color and some fabric markers to label our arm bands with the club name. We will work on these next club meeting.

A reminder during the next club meeting will be brought up to remind club members to attend this club mixer.

3D Modeling Hair by Dani Cuevas Nov 2016

     Dani Cuevas, Club Vice President, has brought her work in progress for a 3D modeling clothing design. She began by showing us previous 3D work she has done: 3D turntable Cherrim and 3D trip animation.

     Her work in progress is a Mexican female soldier outfit sketch. She wants to make it sexy, futuristic, and she wants the Red, Green, and White from the Mexican flag. She also wants to incorporate Mexican embroidery and textiles into her design.

     Her inspiration for her design comes mostly from the Mexican revolutionary women, Soldadera and some inspiration is also derived from Frida Kahlo de Rivera and Princess Leila from Star Wars.

     To make her clothing design she has made a few sketches that she has shown us and is applying her favorite design ideas onto a 3D model. She is currently using 4 different 3D modeling programs to execute her design. She has made some excellent progress but she reminds us that making 3D clothing onto 3D models is very difficult and she has pointed out some parts in which she is struggling with that. In the end, the clothing design should be able to be used in a video game and this is something she wants to do as a career.
