Why your birthday card is late…

Posted By yonghow on September 4th, 2007

A sweet, whimsical piece of digital artwork by my friend Waiming, who is now working at Lucasfilm Singapore. It has since garnered several accolades from various digital painting websites, like Excellence Award from 3dtotal.com. I like how the pyrotechnics in the background is casting a nice rim light on the postman. Indeed, “God is in the details”, like my old animation lecturer Ben use to tell us.

I’ve been working 16 hour days for the past 2 weeks, and thankfully lighting work for Freedom 5 is almost complete. Seeing the finished work is always sweet, but its somewhat scary because I’m almost getting used to the crazy hours – now that can’t be a good thing.

More frequent updates very soon.

“God is in the details”

Fantastic little piece of advice from your teacher! It just made my day!


It can’t be good to work 16-hour days in the long run. But if you’re enjoying it for the moment, does it really matter?

When your body says no, you’ll make the change. 😀
