I did a project for a German course at school, where I interviewed a German-Canadian community member in order to create a video. As she is an avid crafter, and volunteers at the ChristKindl Markt, we did needle felting during the interview, and I made a time-lapse of me creating a maple leaf, using Germany's flag's colours. I also included an image of die Weihnachtsmännern that we created. Do you like? I had fun making them. It's interesting how the wool gets denser and denser every time you poke it with the barbed needles.
My friend's daughter, Maggie, saved me from certain doom, when a giant fireball suddenly appeared from the ocean! Or...one of my earlier attempts at image compositing. Not my best work, but it was fun to make.
As a challenge to see if I could trick others, I put Kanye West on stage with Three Days of Staind Nickelcreed. Would it have tricked you?
Let me know, and share, if you must! (You must.)
Here's an image that seems to have suffered some scissor damage! But with some time, and patience, that portrait is better than new!
Even the arm is only mildly disconcerting, when you stare at it. Don't stare.
I've done something to the image of this celebrity. Can you tell what it is? Let me know in the comments below, if you can figure it out.
I've gone and made a 90 frame video intro for a Youtube series that I might or might not start. I've used the name "Grokology", as it is my domain name, and my minecraft username.
Here is an early test render of one of the frames. There have been many tweaks since then, but the effect is mainly the same.
It was created entirely with Blender 2.75, and contains 2 scenes, 3 layers, and 3 particle systems. Lighting is from far too many point lights, as well as material emission. Please feel free to comment! I will post the intro once it's done rendering, and I've had a chance to upload it.
Here is the final video. I hope you enjoy all 8 seconds! There's sound too!
This logo, which is a fake logo for a real company, was done to practise my GIMP skills. I will continue adding more to the series.
Please feel free to comment and let me know what you think. If you're interested in having your logo redesigned, contact me for a quote.
I got a new Logitech HD webcam (1920x1080), and wasn't having much luck doing time-lapse because the method that I was using with the 2.1MP webcam was using too many cpu cycles.I wrote a simple Bash script to use uvccapture so that I could capture in numeric series, starting at the number after the current highest. I think there is a better way to find the most recent file than the way I've done (using ls and a few pipes) and that is one of the things that I have to change. The good thing is that it works, with some more youtube videos coming soon. I wonder if anyone is even interested in time-lapse photography...
It annoys me when people sit in front of me in a lecture hall and switch from one window to another with that super-slick Mac swipe. It's appealing if you're looking at it, but the motion is distracting to other people.
In the spirit of attracting the attention of people behind me, I used Gimp to modify an image of Alexis Bledel that I found on the internets. Click on the image to see full size. I hope you enjoy it!
I don't ask anything for my art, and I don't watermark, but a link to this article on your blog would be nice!
