My presentation will focus on Digital painting and animation with Project Dogwaffle. This is a software program created by an artist who lives in the North-Los Angeles (Saugus/ Santa Clarita) area. He's created this program over about 12 years, and I have been involved with it for about 10-11 years. It is made for painting with simulated realistic media, including smearing and pigment lifting.
- 3D scene generation and rendering with Puppy Ray raytracing from endless elevation maps - painting with video on video
- many special effects and filters to add that special Hollywood touch

Dogwaffle is not meant to replace them. it's a companion. It lacks a few key features, but it also complements them with a vast range of super-cool gadgets and capabilities.

I got my art education (and fascination) in the school of hard knocks. Always had a passion for colors and pixels, coming from computer science/electrical engineering with computer graphics major.

Now she's the one winning art competitions in college.
