Superman Classic

February 9, 2011

Robb Pratt gave us Superman fans a new little work of art to geek out over: The character design is a departure from anything I’ve ever seen before on this subject material – it has an appeal that’s hard to define, but is immediately engaging.  The biggest problem is that it’s over all too quickly […]

Pics AND It Didn’t Happen

October 12, 2010

With a little image processing in real time, the camera can, in fact, lie.

Getting Photofly Off the Ground

September 20, 2010

I was very excited to see Photofly from Autodesk – this looked like a fantastic way to quickly model objects and buildings using nothing but photographs and the click of a mouse (and time waiting for some computing to be done on some server someplace to figure it all out and stitch it all together). […]

Places to Get Stuff

August 19, 2009

The best content for your production is arguably the content you make yourself. However, sometimes the best content is stuff you just buy and use, because it’s not center stage content or the time and resources required to create the content exceeds the time and resources you have. Here’s a list of sources for models […]


May 16, 2008

A good friend of mine has a husband who is a master chef, and Italian.  He once told me that the Italians have a saying: “Between words and deeds lies an ocean.” When people judge you, they judge you by your actions.  It’s not enough to sit on the sidelines and watch your life go […]

They Say One Picture…

April 14, 2008

is worth a thousand words: The full sized version of this is nine megapixels across, and about one and a half megapixels high. It was shot from the porch of the western gate, looking out over the garden and reflecting pool, using a 5.1 megapixel Sony Cybershot. I took about 32 separate images and tiled […]

Optimus Prime!

November 14, 2007

This year my son absolutely had to be Optimus Prime for Halloween, so since I used to make all this crazy stuff when I was doing practical FX, I decided we’d do it! My web site was so hopeless for updating it that I never posted the picture till now, but here it is: I […]

Servers, Life Drawing and Maya

February 24, 2005

After three months of chasing wild geese, I think I’ve finally stabilized the server. I’ve finished the life drawing course, and my skills have taken another quantum leap – so much so that I’m considering pulling my demo reel and about half of the stuff on my gallery pages as being hopelessly nonrepresentative of my […]

That’s Life (Drawing)

November 17, 2004

I start another life drawing class in about a week, and I’m brushing up on my Maya chops. Soon I’ll be able to run with the big dogs. In the meantime, check out the code page – I’ve finally fixed the problem with the nGene source code that prevented it from compiling cleanly on Linux […]
