Digital Week!


This video is so much more impressive when you've seen the original movie that it's pulled from. Everyone should watch Natural City... It's actually on Netflix. It's the Japanese answer to Bladerunner. I'm sure people will end up smacking me around for this, but I think it's better than Bladerunner in the fact that it actually has excellent character progression that I kind of think Bladerunner lacks. The overall story is very similiar, but the visual effects and overall story seem much more high-reaching than Bladerunner was. All I can say is... watch the movie, it's amazing!


This week's Artist of the Week! goes to agnidevi over on deviantart.com!
While this artist doesn't neccessarily have a huge variance of art, the art that is being presented is amazingly well done. Their style is smooth and interesting. I hope that they continue to draw and paint like crazy. I'll be watching.
Just working more and more on finals. This week is vacation though, so I'll power down a ton of studies during this. Plus it's just plain fun. Here's the art...

Notes: This is actually just a quick study sheet in photoshop. I placed the canvas on one side of my screen and then painted as fast as I could. It was a fun exercise that I'll probably try a whole lot. Each pose is from 45 seconds, all the way to 11 minutes.
