Milt Kahl flips

Andreas Deja has been posting some great sequences from Milt Kahl. I felt compelled to flip through them, and so laid them out for digital flipping. Check Andreas’ site out for great inspiration. (Note: timing here is only intended to be like flipping.)

wheely tile

A quick test of the very cool, and very promising wheely, from Adam at mechanical color. Not quite the thing for tiles, but not far off either. And indispensable for auto wheels and such.

The Mill; no apes harmed


Fantastic reconstruction of a chimpanzee from the mill, with very interesting insights into the technology used for muscle simulation, hair interaction and shading. Reminds me of why I prefer to work in stylized looks 🙂 I also have an inkling that there’s a primate union out there about to strike in protest to now having lost all their jobs.
