Pretty great conclusion to the world title race. Parko certainly deserved it. I think he had the most style in the Pipe Masters. I only wish it came down to a final with Slater. -Waveybrain
Here’s another page of studies: feet, folds, anatomy, tones…that’s what I was focusing on tonight. -Waveybrain
I’ve been pretty annoyed with myself lately for dialing in certain things in my designs. So, here are some much needed studies on women’s shoes and anatomy. It’s been a while since I’ve done real figure drawing, so here is an attempt at re-grounding my anatomy. These are “virtual tracings”-so don’t be impressed. I’m just sharing stuff that’ve been troubling me lately in my personal work. It’s fun to take the time and just examine things. -Waveybrain
Nice groove I heard this mornin’-extra nice with the sunroof open, overcast sky/light rain and thumpin’ speakers. Ahhhhhh
Menahan Street Band - The Crossing (by DaptoneRecords)
I love stop motion animation, but I always wonder about the actual process in these features. The smoothness of stop motion animation these days amazes me. This is the best interview I’ve found on the subject with Travis Knight discussing Laika’s Parnorman whooffers some insights about the task of animating these characters. The second part of the interview is also pretty interesting with the directors, Chirs Butler and Sam Fell
Primus was a great band to see live. Here’s an unusual retrospective on them. I guess I’m actually about 70 years old! I remember a show at the Hollywood Palladium that looked like the opening shot on this “retrospective”. Good times! -Waveybrain
These paintings were done by John Watkiss. He’s an amazing artist (http://johnwatkiss.blogspot.com/). I remember my wife and I went to his home when he was working on “World of Tomorrow”. The art was amazing. He makes it look so easy! I remember that was the day (probably spring 2002) when I first heard of “chem clouds”. He pointed out the peculiar clouds being formed by jet contrails. I’ve been looking up since that day and observed a lot of strange patterns in the sky caused by contrails. There’s a whole conspiracy on that subject with lots of evidence and speculation. Anyway, I don’t think he gets the amount of credit he deserves on many of his films.
I’m one of those people who will pause and examine frames from my favorite movies. The details are awesome, but I was a little disappointed by how straight the copy is on the props. I was hoping for something more whimsical.
We saw the show the other day. It’d be fun to see a whole big budget SpongeBob feature in stop motion! There are some funny bits in the Christmas special. No spoilers here, you’ll have to tune in on CBS. it’ll re-air on Nick.
