My Prized Possession

To most, this is just a piece of junk. Anyone looking through my utensil drawer would think I should have tossed it long ago.  Afterall, it's no longer functional. It just takes up space!  In my eyes it is beautiful. All of its imperfections are part of its story. Part of MY story. In 1984 I was moving into my very first apartment.  I was about to have my own kitchen.  I had nothing to put in it of course except for a set of dishes I purchased at a yard sale and some glasses Id collected from work lol. My mother took me to the store and bought me a set of pots & pans.  She also reached into her own utensil drawer and took out this very spatula.  It was one of her older ones.  Its handle already had several battle wounds from being against the side of a skillet a little too long as she used it to prepare meals for my dad and me. Over the years I have used it to prepare meals for my own family.  My children used it as they learned to cook.   I retired it about 10 years ago beca…

A Little Bit-O-Whimsey

Good morning everyone!
Its 3:44am Alaska time and +18 degrees!
You know what that means? SNOW is on the way lol

I'm working on my second latte and have Immortals playing on the iPad. Have you seen it? Its an oldie, and a little cheesy. But hey, sometimes a little cheese for breakfast is a good thing lol

Synopsis:
Power-hungry King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his ruthless army march across Greece, leaving burned-out villages and the corpses of the innocent in their wake. Hyperion's goal is to find the long-lost Bow of Epirus; with this invincible weapon, he can cast the gods out of Mount Olympus and become master of the world. A stonemason named Theseus (Henry Cavill) heeds the words of the Sibylline oracle (Freida Pinto), who convinces him that he is the key to stopping the bloodthirsty king.

Ok, gotta go.  Theseus just found the bow lol
Before I do, I want to share a recent promo I did Via Sympatico Studio featuring the Latex Collection shader set by -Wolfie-





You get 48 latex shaders!
Yes, you read that right. 48 glossy color options for your runtime! Your artwork will definitely stand out in a crowd sporting one or more of these!
Go get'em, then enjoy the movie!

Hey peeps, let's talk about promos, and what makes a good one! Well, it really depends on what the product is. For example, if you wanted to promo a town or forest. You want to show as much of it as you can without it being obvious.
Perfect example by Anita. The figure is just a part of the scene. It doesn't dominate it. It's clear that what we are selling here is the environment, not model.




What about this one?


It's a cool piece, but what am I selling here? Am I selling the architecture, the ship behind her, or the girl up front? WTF knows? I didn't utilize my camera properly! The model should be off to the side, and my focal point should have been on that ship back there.
And this one!
There is entirely too much going on here. Your eyes go all over the place when they SHOULD be focused on that model. I know.  We have lots of toys we want to play with But when it comes to promos, LESS IS MORE! Here is a prime example of a model promo
The artist still got to play …

Moose Troubles and The New Girl

Good morning everyone!
Its 9:29am Alaska time and +3 degrees.
Weather app says more snow is coming.
For all you ladies out there, it also says its a great day fora super padded Bra. You've been warned lol
I love that App. Its like weather with a sense of humor on the side lol

I've had my 2 lattes already and could really use another.
Every dog for 3 blocks was barking all night due to moose lurking in the woods.
I went to bed at 9. They woke me up at midnight. About an hour after I finally got back to sleep, it was time to get up :(

I didn't watch anything last night as I was busy working on this new girl.





I think I like her as is. I tried adding makeup and all that jazz. But I just didn't like it.
Id loves your opinions. Oh, and she needs a name! I cant just go around calling her new girl forever lol. Shoot me some suggestions!
