The Journey Begins…

After working for different companies in past 5 years, I am very happy to move on and give a shot to something I am much more passionate about. I have moved to Lahore, Pakistan and I will be staying here for couple of months until I sort out where I will be next.

In this post I would like to talk about my future projects, I am sure most of my projects will be Virtual Reality based as it will be on the rise from the beginning of 2016, I will be looking into possible projects that I can pull off myself or it would definitely be great to collaborate with others around the world.

There you go, I mentioned Virtual Reality as the first thing but there are couple of more things I’d like to accomplish in this coming year 2016. Below are few more:

1) Be a Blender Certified Trainer

I will be teaching myself by creating learning material for everyone out there who is interested in Learning Blender 3D. I will be mostly organizing workshops around the places where I will be living. I am hoping different countries, cities, universities and schools etc

2) Finish Luke’s Escape (Film + VR Game)

I know, we have been hanging around with Luke’s Escape for a very good while, I truly had hard time working on the project especially because I was a full time employee in a company and well I am not anymore so I have a whole open ground for myself to get inspired from others, create, celebrate and share with everyone.

3) Attend the Blender Conference 2016

I was part of Blender Conference 2013, I didn’t get any chance to visit the conference in 2014 & 2015 but I wouldn’t want to miss it in 2016. If you have never been to Blender Conference and you are a Blender-head, you’ve got to do your best to experience it once to know the Blender family & meet everyone who is doing their best to make Blender 3D awesome everyday.

I am just a little bit worried on how all of these things will happen but I do know one thing, I have to be persistent in doing them and hopefully I will complete my goals for 2016.

If you would like to get in touch on some VR Projects, Animations or generally for a good chat please do let me know on my email iowaqas (@) gmail.com or @iowaqas

I am sure ya’ll have something in your mind for this coming year as well.

So good luck in advance!

Hello Guys,

colorbug_blog

Here I am again with an exciting post today. I have been working in pixelbug for more than a year and we are proud to launch our most awaited Edutainment App, colorbug:

Links:     official site     |     facebook
My role in this application is as a Technical Artist, bridging the gap between the Artists and programmers. It was an exciting project, we have it live on App Store and at the moment it’s only available for iPad users but we are in a process to bring it for both iPhone and Android users as soon as possible.

If you have any comments please let them below and stay tuned for more fun stuff.

Thank you and enjoy!

Going out on the wide web

Over few years I had made accounts on professional networks to promote myself as an Artist but haven’t really maintained because of University, later finding job, lots of work at office and no time. Now I decided to revive all of them back again:

1. nabaroo: http://nabaroo.com/iowaqas

Recently I was invited to join nabaroo by the creators, it’s online network to showcase your art and I am enjoying it. It’s simple and also I am finding great artworks. You should definitely give it a try.

3. behance.net: https://www.behance.net/iowaqas

4. Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=99031364

If there are more good networks to promote art or to connect with people. I’d be happy to know if you could leave in comments.

Thanks guys…

3D Art / In The Playground

Recently I played a game called ‘Among The Sleep‘, Its a horror game, it has a great gameplay and environment. I fell in love with the simplicity of the game and how the studio ‘krillbite‘ pulled it off. So I thought of appreciating their effort and do some Fan Art.

Here it is below, Enjoy!

Thanks for watching…

3D Art / Charging Room

Another piece for my portfolio. It was right there sitting on my desktop since few months. I stopped working on it because I got really busy with my Job but here ya go! It’s a ‘Charging Room’, old with some hanging wires and it is made entirely in Blender 3D. Since I have been learning and brushing up my Blender skills, I wanted to take it up on an environment but really complicated but simple and I finally finished it.

The road down to Blender is still long but I am on it and will hopefully be creating a lot more just in Blender 3D.

I’d be happy to know what you think about the environment and if you have some feedback please leave a comment.

Thank you…

Project : Different

Hello Guys,

A little project I have been meaning to complete and finally uploaded on Vimeo, have a look and hopefully I will follow it up with ‘The Making of Different’

About:

Sometimes we feel left out,
not belonging to the nearest crowd.

No matter how loud you shout,
but not for a second yourself you doubt.

You should know that you are truly blessed,
among the big crowd how different you are dressed.

/ It’s never a negative thing to be different, it’s just that you have a different path to follow and you are on it!
Imagine as a warrior yourself on a path of your own :)

Live happily!
