this lady is a little creepy

She's completely CGI and flash.

Her eyes are really bloodshot for some reason O_O but just watch her for a while, she really starts to creep you out! link

Abandoned rollercoaster 30 years on...

I really like these pictures of a rollercoaster in america that has been abandoned for 30 years, and nature took back its land...

3D camera anyone?

"Most of us are happy to take 2D happy snaps with single lens digital cameras. Imagine if you had a digital camera that could more accurately perceive the distance of all objects in its field of vision than your own eyes and brain. That's exactly what a team of researchers from Stanford University are working on — and it could even be affordable for ordinary consumers."


okay, so its ALMOST 3d, pretty nifty though?

For Will mostly, and any other concept artists and illustraitors alike!

A fantastic community called (shockingly) Conceptart! includes a great forum where you can put up your own work for critique! has some great excercises in honing your skills and also to practice for when you may be working for people, especially art directors...

the website

where your digital sketchbook goes

a great post with all sorts of practice ideas!
i'd reccommend book marking that one if you wanna go back to it, took me ages to find it second time around!

if you do decide to join, my "handle" is missvacant so throw a message at me so I can poke around your sketchbook.

P.S - Will, how come you havent got your shiny butt on there yet?!

RE: Greatest Achievement

well, they're not hugely amusing, cept for the big cartoon crow esp the dude playing the sax ^^, Nothing as fun as a certificate for bouncing (what were you bouncing?) But i found some old school reports and i think they're pretty funny, just like, at that age esp with large class sizes, there are so many sweeping statements and coverall terms in my old primary school reports!

most of these are for swimming or dancing pretty much, oh well (blame Matt)

I like how in the first one they spelt my name wrong! Some people just dont pay attention

i did loads of dancing exams, lost most of the certificates though, only have the really early ones

Hmmm... interesting, perhaps?

animation made with the soundtrack and based on interviews about people's first "crush" I like the idea and how its presented, and its kinda sweet i guess, i'd like to see more about other topics, the topic seems a little... superficial. nice idea though ^^
