Time Lapse Needle Felting

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.

Hell On Wheels!

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.

Family Restoration

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.

Found Insects - Some Kinds of Beetle

Are you familiar with insects in Ontario, Canada? I've found, and photographed a few recently, and can't seem to find any images that lead to a positive identification except for the spider.

Here's a nice pic of a beetle found near my tomato plants. It looks similar to a leaf-footed bug, but I'm not sure what it is. Squash bug?

Next is another unknown beetle. Looks similar to pics of a Soldier Beetle, or possibly Pennsylvania Leatherwing. What do you think?

Youtube Video Intro - Blender

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.

4RCR

Here's a pic from when I was in 4RCR. I believe this was taken shortly after the Paardeberg Ball.
