Sonic the Hedgehog coming to theaters 2018 — in live action and CGI
By Allegra Frank

“Sega Sammy Holdings — the parent company of Sonic the Hedgehog creator Sega — is working with Sony Pictures to bring the blue blur to the big screen. In an interview with The World Folio, company president and CEO Hajime Satomi confirmed that a combined live action and computer-generated film is in the works.

Beyond its release window, Satomi neglected to share little else about the film. It’s not immediately clear if this project is in development alongside the previously announced animated Sonic feature, or if this will replace that one. Sega and Sony announced that CG-animated film in 2014, saying then that it was in production at Japanese studio Marza Animation Planet.”


REAL psyched on this one. THE ‘ADRENALINE’ VIDEO!

about a year ago i stumbled on an artist named @artby2wenty who creates INCREDIBLE images using lights and long exposures. no computer generated tricks. this is his first foray into video.

“adrenaline” is a song about longing. and los angeles. and the lost hours between midnight and dawn. and he nails it. i can't think of anyone else’s images that even come close.

Vickie Vainionpaa Trying to Capture “Gap” Between Digital and Real

A set of two oil paintings nearing completion. The process begins by altering an image using digital masking and photoshop filters to produce a flattened version of an image of cumulous clouds. Computer-generated contours and gradient fills determined by tone and contrast are then inverted and rendered in oil paint. This work is my attempt to capture the gap between digital and real. For me, this gap is epitomized in the classic notion of a sunset; Perhaps one of the most universally beautiful and alluring experiences, yet when captured on camera, the digitized version will never be as sublime.

Do you know of any good websites to buy cosplay? (My friend and I are cosplaying denmark and norway)

I personally got my two Hetalia cosplays off of the sites HelloCosplay and SkyCosplay.

I can spend hours combing the internet for cosplays that I like so I tend to go all over the place. (I’m very picky)

Before you decide on a place to buy your cosplays from, READ THE REVIEWS FIRST! Google search “Cosplaysitenamehere reviews” They may look legit, but they might be a total scam or totally unreliable. Especially if you decide on Ebay. Weed through the totally obvious computer generated reviews to see what people actually think of the seller.



Amazing Digital Art

Born in Poland in 1972, digital artist Adam Martinakis currently lives and works in in Cannock, United Kingdom. His computer-generated artworks employ aspects of photorealism and surrealism to explore the human condition which he says results in a “mixture of post-fantasy futurism and abstract symbolism”.


Bursting Bubbles

Two UC Berkeley researchers have now described mathematically the successive stages in the complex evolution and disappearance of foamy bubbles (the images above are based off of a computer-generated video that uses their equations).

What purpose does this serve (besides making for some very mesmerizing GIFS…)?  The work has applications in industrial processes for making metal and plastic foams (like those used to cushion bicycle helmets) and in modeling growing cell clusters, which rely on these types of equations.

The problem with describing foams mathematically has been that the evolution of a bubble cluster a few inches across depends on what’s happening in the extremely thin walls of each bubble, which are thinner than a human hair.

Matter by Quayola

Quayola on his project:

Matter is a time-based digital sculpture; a celebration of matter itself, the substance of all physical things. It describes a continuous dynamic articulation of a solid, pure block of matter, from the simplest primitive forms to the highest details of geometric complexities, and vice versa… from the unpredictable grace of geological processes to the perfection, beauty and precision of man made crafts. The subject of this piece is Rodin’s sculpture Le Penseur (The Thinker), a masterpiece born as the avant-garde that has since become a universal classical icon, and now considered the bridge from classical to modern sculpture.

Here’s what happens when you let a computer write a Friends episode

Comic artist Andy Herd is creating a Friends reunion of his own: He fed all 236 of the sitcom’s scripts into a computer program and started generating brand-new episodes. As if Monica and Ross kissing wasn’t odd enough, things get really weird when Van Damme shows up.
