I was assuming you'd had cracked ribs before. Seemed a bit extreme for a first sporting injury. Might I suggest snapping an ankle or two and then building up from there. Take it slow til you get a good feel for it :lulz:

Interesting, a lot of that sounds similar to cracked ribs?

There's no animation in the actual Medium software and with animation you have to do this horrible retopology shit which I haven't practised enough to get comfortable with yet. Same with "rigging" which is adding the virtual armature that poses your model .I'll probably get around to it at some point but I got a whole bunch of other things I want to learn first.

Over the next couple of years motion capture technology is going to become dirt cheap, like practically free with the next generation of 3d sensors being built into smartphones and VR/ar rigs. No more of those weird suits with the ping pong balls and a dozen ridiculously expensive lidar cameras. At that point retopo-ing and rigging will be worth my while when I can just act out the animations.

People going to want virtual avatars to interact with their friends in the metaverse. 8)

I'm a thought untamed and wild and free
on the lookout for a host
A demon in the eyes of some
to others I'm a substitute holy ghost

I make your eyes glaze over and your jaw go slack
Never take my eye off target as I pull the trigger back
Your reality a program that has just been jacked
Like a virus in your system, sneezing, spreading my attack

I'm a wicked little ideology
or a political fairy tale
I'm a differential marker in biology
or a sign saying "half price sale"

I grow like a tumour in the wetware soup
I spread in conversation every ear a storm to troop
"I believe" and "I will follow" yelled and chanted round the group
A million righteous voices raised, their brains on fucking loop

Thanks! Been working on a Bob Marley portrait for a couple of days now that still looks like shit and is currently walking the fine line between - right, lets get this figured out - and - fuck bob marley in his stupid dead rasta face  :argh!:

Took a break from him tonight and did a detailing redux on Goblin Fight Promoter. Been dreading detailing for so long but I gotta tell you - it's my new favourite thing in the world!

You just know your country is a fucking joke when North Korea can legitimately claim moral high ground. My heart does go out to you guys who have to live across there but I'll be fucked if I can stop laughing at this point. Doubly so since the UK's biggest import is american-brand retardedness. I believe we're already in the process of introducing death camps for people who install solar panels on their roofs  :lulz:


Everyone ready for a round of crippling depression on Friday as we wake up to increased Conservative majority?

If you're actually getting depressed over any shitty tv soap opera, my advice is to seek professional help :lulz:

Ouch! Sounds like you had quite a day. Glad to hear you survived it.

I like this. I really like it. Although I do consider myself one of the bad guys so maybe my opinion is biased or invalid or something.

That actually raises a good point. I do have the whole "we're the bad guys" thing.

To me, it's related to the - smart people doubt themselves whereas stupid people have stupid self confidence - thing. A default position of "I'm an evil wanker but I'd like to be less so." seems preferable to me than "I'm doing all this insane evil bullshit for all the right reasons and if I die I get cake."

When I hear either those kinds of statements, mostly it's wankers on both sides with edgelords on one side and WBC on the other. The exceptions to this rule are invariably self confessed evil fuckers who aren't necessarily proud of the fact and might not broadcast it all that loud.

I'm wary of the right thing. I kinda try to do it but I'm always aware I've been wrong before. Believing in a right thing limits it's ability to become a wrong thing, which right things have a tendency to do from time to time.

I like how in that last one he's all "now hold on just a sec..."

Was trying to catch the dynamic of him getting shot by a machine gun, so I looked in the mirror and imagined myself being shot in the shoulder, the cheek and then the head and trying to figure out where the arms could be. I went for a kind of left arm out doing the - graspy zombie - thing. And the right arm sorta just hanging down.

So then I acted out taking one in the shoulder and that obviously twisted my shoulder back but I could feel the momentum pulling on my left arm so that came across and then my head twisted back with shot-2 but the force on the left arm was still (I felt) coming from shoulder rotation.

And then my hand was between me and the shooter...

Dunno, does that momentum thing come across in the final sculpt? Also the ridiculousness of his eyes focused on the bullet that would have been out the back of his head before this brain would even register there was something to look at. Thought that might be worth a laugh?

Sometimes progression for me is in small, incremental steps. I keep practising and, every time I create something new, I get a little bit more fluid, a little bit better. Other times there are what feel like huge leaps, like with Karloff where a number of different things I've been working on seem to fall into place in a - better than the sum of it's parts - kinda deal. At least that's how it feels.

These leaps feel fucking awesome. With the incremental progress I hardly notice it happening, the difference in quality from one project to the next is barely noticeable. Only when I look back at earlier shit do I see the difference but with the "Level Up" crap, that's almost like a choir of angels or some shit. An orgasm maybe, it's a total buzz anyway but it's both a blessing and a curse.

Sometimes it's a bit of a fluke. My next dozen things will be back to where I was and that's frustrating as fuck but I just have to hold on to the memory of managing it the one time, to spur me on through the increments I have to plod through in order to get back there. TBH, it doesn't feel like failure exactly but it's a kick in the nuts from a very similar boot.

"Can I turn on the Karloff shit at will now or was that just a tease?" I was wondering to myself. Bit nailbitey but WTF, only one way to find out. Happy to report, I think it's a proper level up and not just a preview! So this guy is my "Big project for the weekend" New training regimen, to accommodate and build on my newly acquired hi frequency detail skillz. Even for the pros, detailing is a fucking time consuming thing. Time to cover a whole model raises exponentially with resolution so at weekends I'm going to dedicate 10-12 hours to ninja-ing the fuck out a sculpt and then through the week I'll stick to speedsculpts and anatomy studies.

Based on a concept sculpt I scribbled down a few weeks back. Should have this guy finished by tomorrow night

Wos the correct term for MIFL, then?  :argh!:
