Interested in Dreamworks? Lighting ResourceSo I attended a talk by Bert Poole - He's currently serving as a CG Supervisor on their new movie "The Croods" scheduled for release in March 2013. His most recent movie, you all know of is How to Train Your Dragon, where he was also a CG Supervisor. If you don't know what that means, that means he worked on lighting C: What I'm putting below is from notes I took during his lecture.Interested in Dreamworks? Lighting Resource2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
His job is to take the directors vision and make the movie look like it. He's making compositions and helping the story to better read. If you've ever talked to me on DA for three or more posts, you might have heard me blab about my major and what I'd like to do. I'd like to do into Lighting, animation second. I just don't feel my skills are as suited for animation, even though I really enjoy it.
Before they start lighting, they work on color Keys
Color Keys are painted works that are used to indicate:

Introduction to Polymer ClayPolymer clay is a modeling compound consisting mainly of polymer polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and plasticizes to make it pliable. As you can see it's easy to define polymer clay, but there's no possible way to describe all the variety of things that can be achieved with it.Introduction to Polymer Clay2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Photomanipulation walkthroughStep 1: Idea (message, composition)Photomanipulation walkthrough2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You decided that you want to make a photomanipulation. But what to make? There are so many photomanipulations already out there and mostly with the same theme. So you decide you don't just want to stick a pretty girl onto a beautiful background. No you want to be original and have your manipulation portray a message everyone can relate to.
Think of things that are important to you, that lay close to your heart. They can be emotions (love, hate, sadness, anger) or experiences, hobbies (art, sports etc), things you are struggling with. Or they can be global themes like (beauty, money, economy, eating disorders, war, relationships etc.)
Of course if you choose to portray something as love there are many ways to do so. Do you want it to be a surreal depiction of love, or dark, fantasy, sci-fi, conceptual, humourous... your choice will of course decide the whole 'feel' of the image.
So choose wisely as they say.
Now that you have your theme you nee

Sherlock Holmes: The Ever Evolving IconWhat is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television?

things made small...Tilt/Shift photos can be a lot of fun.things made small...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Making big things looks small. And who isn't fascinated by miniatures?
The effect can be accomplished with the use of a special lens,
which I know next to nothing about,
or it can be achieved by post processing,
which I know a little about.
Here are some excellent tutorials about "faking" it,
followed by some examples...
Here's some great examples:

Coyote 'Soft mount' FOR SALE, Reduced.FOR SALE - $350 $325Coyote 'Soft mount' FOR SALE, Reduced.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
GLaDOS is a Taxidermy 'Soft Mount' made by the amazing Zhon
She's armatured (poseable) in her legs to make her poses more realistic (she can't hold her own head up) - allowing her to go loveably floppy when she's picked up. She's so cute, and SUPER SOFT. She's a big girl ^^ I think she was quite young, still has a bit of a baby tail on her, adorable ♥ She's not weighted, but she's quite heavy, she really feels like a live animal! She's stunning ♥
I'm looking for a VERY loving home for GLaDOS, I want her to go somewhere where she will be loved, and get the respect and all of the cuddles and kisses that she deserves! ATM she's having to be kept in my wardrobe with a sheet over her, and that is not where she belongs, nor where she deserves to be. She needs a loving home where she'll get lots of TLC ♥
If you are interested, please Comment or Note me ♥
I might consider full/partial trades.
okSo I really, really like being nice and telling everyone who gives my pictures any love thank you, but sometimes that's not totally possible (like when I upload tonnes of things at once), so just know that I really do appreciate all the feedback I receive. Thank you so much!ok1 year ago in Personal More Like This
PLUSH-TAXIDERMY SALE! (and I am moving now)EDIT::::PLUSH-TAXIDERMY SALE! (and I am moving now)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know a lot of people here on DA have rescued me out of some serious shit-times.
Be it kind words, or just buying stuff from me.
I love and thank you all who have supported me through these tough times!
Now, a good friend of mine is in a pile of hysterical trouble. Her husband just got his hours cut and they are in the same pickle I was a few months ago.
I ask all my fellow taxidermy enthusiasts to see if there is anything you would like to purchase from her.
She still does plush commissions, but I am down for the count due to everything happening with my moving situation.
These are all of the plushes she spent so much time and put so much love into, she does not want to sell them, but some sacrifices had to be made.
