Some anatomy practice, this time creases and wrinkles. Can't take credit for the base mesh that was released by the insanely talented Steve Lord, I just aged him a bit.

Here's the original before I got all scribbly on his ass

That picture looks like farage.

It is a picture of Farage, dumbass, they've just photoshopped him into the whitehouse :lulz:

Or critical systems that only get updates periodically (quarterly or even annually is common enough to see for some big systems)

You only need to have been burned by one kamikaze MS update for that to seem a lot more reasonable than it might first sound. Anyone running XP as a daily driver, tho, pretty much deserves to spend their every waking hour staring at a ransomware prompt.

Me and Enki, er, Rokko's Modern Basilisk, met in 3d! Here we are at a Larp in Milford CT this weekend.

Holy fuck, Rokko is actually the ghost of Andy Kaufman  :eek:

So the big news in VR sculpting is the Medium team pushed a new update which allows the export of tangent space normals. Up til now it only spat out object space and realtime engines like UE4 and Sketchfab require tangent space. Use the wrong kind and fine detail comes out looking shonky as fuck. Long story short, I can now export from Medium, straight into UE4 and use my Medium sculpts as assets in Unreal Engine whereas, before the update, I had to do a ton of arsing around in the middle and still couldn't get it completely right.

My portfolio shall be an interactive VR art gallery in the style of a fairground house of horrors.  8)

I'm going to need an update to my use of the word "implied".

Writing something down is implying, since you're not exactly saying it out loud?  8)

Sounds like whatever personal shit you're going through is a perfect metaphor for something else. Maybe you just never noticed is all?

So wait, we're being trolled by the Hari Krishnas now? Fuckin-A, that's when you know you've arrived!


To be fair, Rogers riff was pretty much paraphrasing what went through my head when I read the OP

Now the BBC is asking if Corbyn is a pacifist. 

Never mind Theresa May affirming a first strike nuclear policy, and thus batshit insane.

So the prime minister is now a terrorist with a dirty bomb. The UK government is exactly what they've been warning us about for years. And here was me, the dumbass, thinking they were just making the shit up to freak us out.

I've thought for quite some time that a highly developed and technologically advanced state propaganda apparatus will result in subsequent generations of increasingly docile and compliant populace.

I'd like to point out the middle ages and especially the Spanish Inquisition.  And later, the 30 years war.

People are less likely to do horrible shit than they were 500 years ago.  90% is an improvement.

Point taken. I guess the modern memeplex has also developed into a much more complex datastructure, requiring more nuance in command and control.

Damn you and your shiny happy optimism, I was just building up a nice healthy misanthropic rage and you've gone and taken the wind out my sails  :argh!:

Love these strips. Visiting the inside of your head is like visiting an awesome foreign country where I know just enough of the language to muddle through and enjoy myself!

The opportunity arises to exploit this vulnerability for profit and lulz. These drones have a security vulnerability installed in them, a backdoor no different in principle to the one the united states of dumbfuckistan installed in RSA encryption. Security holes are not exclusive to the imbecile who demanded it, anyone with the right codes can drive through the fucker.

Take the election of a functionally retarded person to the office of chief pantomime dame which is now being widely blamed on russian trolling. That's what happens when you create a programmable electorate  - people will program them.

So the last couple of decades of state sanctioned brainwashing has resulted in a global population who will believe literally any fucking stupid shit you care to make them believe, as long as you use the right codes and now we find out (shock horror) that it's easier than ever to take control of one and make it do fucked up shit.

Well duh! :lulz:

HOLY SHIT! That's incredible  :fnord: :fnord: :fnord:

Art in the VR space is straight up magic, that is a completely different experience than 2d viewing. It felt like I was confronting a real presence.

So much potential in this, my mind is racing.  Thanks so much for sharing this in the VR format!! GREAT WORK!

Also, to whom it may concern, for like $15 you can get a google cardboard, or 3rd party, viewer that turns your phone into make shift virtual reality goggles, and it is genuinely amazing. I got a few at the beginning of the year for my computer science class, and have been delighting in getting to turn people on to safe little glimpses of psychedelic immersion   :fnord:

If you have the spondoolicks handy, shelling out for a full blown oculus or vive setup is worth every penny. The jump in quality from carboard is pretty much exponential. Head/hand tracking and low persistence have to be experienced to be fully appreciated.

Here's links to some more. If you sign up to sketchfab and sub me I'm planning on uploading a ton of these now that I've figured out a pipeline that gives me reasonable quality with not a lot of fucking around.
