The pixels are of different sizes and the color isn't true 8-bit.

Yeah... I wanted to make something in that style 8bit but at higher resolution, which itself is really an oxymoron. So I pick around at it experimentally, and got some sort of hybrid thing that I don't really know what to call.

Re: Your Random Creations

Having different pixel sizes makes them original, and allows for details while keeping this "8-bit" style. I really like the idea, it holds well together.

Considering the gent you're replying to is from Chicago, your gun control is probably considerably looser up north.

Yeah, I'm sure. We also drive big trucks wink

Actually, Chicago is among the strictest gun controlled cities in the US of A though their crime rates are still appalling. What they need is this:

Re: Your Random Creations

Not really my creations, but certainly my work.   I've got three shows I worked on roughly on the air now-ish.

Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition on Lifetime.  I worked on Episodes 4, 7, and 10.

Airport 24/7: Miami on Travel.  This is the show I had to go live in Miami for for a few weeks.  I worked on kinda everything.

My Ghost Story on Bio.  I did a few segments for them over the summer.  It's airing like mad now.

Why thankyou, good sir!

I wish I could show mattes, breakdows, etc. but studios often don't like to hand that kind of material out to artists.  Although, RSP's website has some breakdown material for some of the shows we have worked on, which you can find here: http://www.rsp.com.au/portfolio.htm

A lot of it is just a bunch of roto, track marker removal, and paint work for crew removal, reconstruction of edges that get lost in a key, and changes to sets (the first shot being one of those). Doing those tasks leads to a compositing role, which is much more exciting, and what you see in the Prometheus shots:
- Comping the HUD-like screens onto the panes of glass on-set
- The storm sequence had some pretty extensive wire removal and retime work done, and then the smoke and particles were added over the top
- flamethrower stuff was some pretty extensive reflection reconstruction on the helmets, since they reflected so much of the crew and unwanted parts of the set.
- charlize running down the hallway was a set extension (start of shot, there was a greenscreen just outside the doorway at the back of the room)
- smokey hallway at the end also had some pretty extensive retiming, paint cleanup, and repair work. Then there's the smoke.

As for the whole "collaborated with other artists" tag:
- The roto/paint shots were often split between a couple of people, purely to get the work completed faster.
- Most of the comp shots were started by others, which I inherited and took to final.

I still need to write a shot-specific breakdown for everything, which will go up on my website when it's finished.

Re: Your Random Creations

Pretty cool and again kudos to you. And congrats on working on scenes with Charlize Theron. That must have been a perk smile

What software are you mostly working in?

p.s.
I think I saw your personal site few years back... maybe 2010? Were you active on CGSociety around 2009-2010?

I was bored, so I had a bit of fun with my Yamaha keyboard and Mixcraft, which is a pretty cool DAW. Made this in less than an hour, it's far from perfect but I'm happy to get something out of my guitar for once.
