Good to see you back, Doc!

I haven't seen Prince of Egypt since release, I really should revisit it sometime.

I'm going to hazard a guess and say another shed.

As much as I'd love to do Hitchhikers, we're probably better off doing something public domain.

Ideally, we need something that's not too long, has a decent amount of characters, and is something we could have a bit of fun with. I'm coming up blank right now though. I was thinking Flatland, but most of it is just first-person narration.

12 Months Old

The big 12 months, has it really been that long?! It's not his birthday until Tuesday, but apparently he's 12 months old? I dunno, ageing babies is weird. Anyway, this was actually quite a difficult shoot that had to get cut short. We didn't get started until later than I would have liked, so he was pretty tired and cranky, resulting in a lot of pictures of a kid that doesn't look one bit happy about being there. I'm planning a more birthday themed shoot for Tuesday, so hopefully, that one will go a bit smoother!

Awesome images! I've not had the best of luck myself. I can't really travel anywhere, and there's a big, brightly lit construction project just round the corner which isn't doing any favours. Gonna keep trying though!

EDIT: Clear night and was able to take this from my front door!

I have also become obsessed with Hamilton lately. I sent this over to a friend and thought it totally fits the spirit of this thread.

I was wondering what this movie would look like if it wasn't so goddamn cyan, so I dragged a few screencaps into Photoshop and dropped that slider right down.

I did a little bit of extra work for a couple of the shots, but for the most part, it was literally just dragging down the cyan slider in Selective Color. I don't even mind the overtly cyan look in some places, but it's used so much that it the effect just becomes diluted.

Seeing as I just followed a tutorial, I hesitate to call this a creation. But hey - I'm proud dammit!

https://i.imgur.com/qgVRKSL.png

I decided to try giving 3D a shot for the umpteenth time and thought I'd go with Blender. Found a Beginners Tutorial series on YouTube and just powered through it. I've learned a lot (and forgot a lot too), and I will be going back to try some bigger and better things.

As for using Blender itself; it's a lot better than it was when I last dabbled! However, it did end up using an absolute tonne of memory, and performance got worse as it went on. Possibly something I did wrong, but I couldn't find out what was causing it and wasn't gonna start again from scratch - so I persevered!

There are many Beginner Blender Donuts out there, but this one is mine.

Fun fact: I actually did an AC/DC song (I believe it was Whole Lotta Rosie) at a karaoke night in uni and got asked to join someone's band immediately after. I declined.

Dude, your voice grain is absolutely tremendous. You could replace any AC/DC singer and I wouldn't notice.

I feel like an AC/DC cover has to happen now...

Any requests tongue

Teenage me used to be in a band, so I sent this little clip over to them (we have a little group chat going) as we used to always play this song during rehearsals. It ain't a full entry, but it's fun - and any chance I get to use my Axl Rose voice is gonna be a good time.

I watched The Last Black Man in San Francisco about a week ago and this rendition of San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair) plays during a scene. It's beautifully haunting and bittersweet, and it fits the film so damn perfectly. I've not been able to get this out of my head ever since.

Very nice!

We have two furry companions living with us these days.

Shadow

https://i.imgur.com/6KD8dEf.jpg

Shadow was my Uncle's cat. He passed away suddenly and we took her in to live with us. She's not a cuddly cat, but she is certainly affectionate in her own way. It took a little while before she got used to living with us, but now she acts like she owns the place.

She went on a trip to the vet yesterday after getting into a fight with another cat. She took a claw to the ye and down to her cheek. She's doing okay now though and should be all good in a few days.

André

https://i.imgur.com/f9qkDrb.jpg

We got André when he was around five/six months old. He was a rescue dog that was found left in a box as a puppy in Romania (long story...). He took to us right away and is now enjoying life as 'Protector of the Baby'. Yeah, he can be a little bit of a nuisance sometimes - but he's still a good boy.

It's not often you get a picture of the two of them together.

Great stuff!

Have you found much of a difference between the card method and this app, or is it pretty similar?

Bit of both if you wouldn't mind! Would love to know the how and the why.
