Was too far to see some of the stuff that happened in front of the main crowd.. still was pretty good and i got to laze about in peace.

Got to see this team in action.. Wasp and Viking from Scandinavian Airshow were actually more fun than all the military jets

Le Gouffre – an award winning animated short


Found this today and it really impressed me. The attention to detail and overal quality of artwork and storytelling is the best i’ve seen in a while. From what I can see its mostly done with Softimage and a whole lot of skill+talent+patience. Well done!

“Le Gouffre is the first animated short film produced and directed by Lightning Boy Studio, a young creative team based in Montreal. The film tells the story of two spirited travelers who come across an incredibly wide chasm on their journey and decide to build a bridge to cross it. Released in February 2015, the project had first gained a lot of attention following the huge success of its Kickstarter campaign, which allowed the creators to finance the movie’s post-production. Many were impressed by the passion and determination of the small team of three animators, who spent more than two full years creating the 10-minute film.” – Lightning Boy Studio


As of now, Le Gouffre has been selected in more than 40 festivals around the world and won six awards, three of them for “Best Animated Short”.



Head over to their website legouffre.com for more info and artwork.

Easiest 3d Modelling Tool You’ll Find Today

Discovered this via the Sketchfab blog .. and it blew my mind!.. its the easiest 3d modelling tool i’ve seen since Teddy.  

The website is called Smoothie-3D and you can use it to sculpt a 3d model out of any side profile picture you have of.. an animal.. (havnt yet tried it with other stuff) 

Heres what i was able to do in 5-10min .. my first time using the site!

Step1: upload an image.. i chose this picture i had of one of my dogs.

Rumi the Irish Setter

Step2: trace it .. every shape you trace gets turned into a bulbous extrusion with the photograph mapped onto it as a texture!


Step3: scale, manipulate and reflect/clone things like legs, ears etc.. 
refer to this helpful video:
