damn, man! You've come a long way.

if I ever actually repair my 3d printer repaired, it'd be cool to print one of these.

No worries. Just hit me up and I'll fire some .obj's your way. Be cool to see one printed out. Some dude from facebook was threatening to print Mrs Sneddon the other night. I'll post pics in here if he ever does.

Still a long way to go but getting comfy with the anatomy down to about the tits lets me bang out shit that I'm happy enough with to spur me on. You should have seen the full body figure study I attempted before this, tho. Fucking zero idea what's going on down there. Got fed up after an hour and a half trying to get the bastard ankles right and scrapped it then blasted out the woodland fawn prick in 40 mins as a pick me up for my shattered ego.

Much easier to wear the defeats than it was six months ago when everything I tried was fail. Now I can at least score a win every now and again. This time next year the plan is full body sculpts from memory. That's when this shit'll really get interesting 8)

Or Kill Me / Re: You're not conscious

Some random thoughts.

When you are mindful of your thoughts you invoke a minder. One who minds. This is consciousness or, more correctly, this is the seat of consciousness. The font from which consciousness pours. I'm of the opinion that when most people talk about consciousness they are simultaneously aware of this phenomenon but blind to what they are aware of, given that it permeates every facet of mind but is not mind. And in looking for it, they see it's fingerprints everywhere, in every thought and deliberation and they point at some mundane but hard to notice mental process and say - "this is consciousness" and they totally miss the joke. Consciousness is nothing. It's everywhere but it's nothing. It's much harder to examine because everywhere it looks it sees evidence of it's own passing. Footprints. And they describe the shape but not the form. The action but not the actor.

I also have a sneaking suspicion that cavemen looking for their own consciousness is how all that god and soul bullshit got started because, when you start to get into consciousness hunting and you start to get a feel for your quarry, it's easy to jump to ridiculous conclusions. Consciousness is a pretty ridiculous beast when it comes right down to it.

Deepmind knocks it out the park again. Pretty much the only thing worth talking about in the ML community since AlphaGo, in terms of where it goes next,  has been episodic memory. Lot of labs trying to develop solutions. This is pretty f'kin awesome.

It must be the blood of all those Christian virgins... who knew?

The christian virgins are well aware of it. That's why they always look so paranoid

In which we both look inexplicably young.

Not even a laughter line and obviously not strangers to smiling. Yeah you can fuck right off with that shite. Most of my face is now dangling around my ankles :argh!:

Mars is misunderstood. Deep down inside he's like a little puppy. Just wants to play :evil:

God of War

He was originally going to have a full helmet but everything I tried was teh suck but I totally wanted the crest so I ended up just bolting it on his skull. Think it went better with the look I was going for - "I'm Mars and I will fucking anybody!"



Nailed it!  :lulz:

I love how finally, on the way out the door, the people of scotland would have some input into who governs the UK. We're dumb, tho. Never going to happen. Calling it now - they'll offer the same line in bullshit, More power to scottish parliament and a secure place in europe and we'll eat it up like cupcakes cos we're a nation of retards  :lulz:

Ideological scenarios like this invariably end up messy. Real messy. Like mountains of rotting meat-messy. You can either be the one making the mess or you are the mess. Pick a side.

For shiggles try covering up the left and right sides of the second pic alternatively. First I made it symmetrical like this

Then a dude on facebook dared me to "break symmetry" which is a thing in digital sculpting where the symmetry mode mirrors what you do on one side of the plane so it's half the work to make a face but totally symmetrical faces look just fucking wrong. Uncanney valley kinda shit so once the bulk of the work is done you turn off symmetry mode and work on making each side just a bit different. You can moles and scars and just generally fiddle about with shit so it looks more natural.

So I decided to practice expressions but I had two in mind - "Goblin has no requirement for the bullshit you offer" and "Goblin regrets choices he made in life that brought shame on himself and the horde". Couldn't make up my mind which to do so I decided to try half of each and see what happened.

First pic was just slightly rotated in favour of the sad side. Second one is pretty much straight-on. So it turned out that rotating the head gives me emotional volume control for the final shot. Like a crossfade from mean to sad. I kinda like the juxtaposition so I framed it straight on.
