The Radeon Pro Duo features 2 archiecture Fiji type chips with a dedicated water cooler. Sharing the same enthusiaism for 2016 VR, this monster will be priced at $1,499

Anyone’s wallet is ready? We are excited to see what the PC Building commuting can do with this!

What a great trail run instead of my usual street training run!!

My wife was able to run with me and to do something different we drove over to Comunity Park and did a 4 mile on Coal Creek Trail. I have been wanting to show my wife the trail. Besides what a great opportunity to try out my Go Pro rig.

The run was great my leg was really good and only started twinging around the mile 3 switchback. My wife was not happy with my choice of runs with hill work. I should have thought this pick through a bit better. I just remember the view and nice trail and tend to forget about the rough hills… Its that fun runner selective memory. However the hills didn’t stop my wife from a great pace!! The one shown here was my pace she staid in front of me the entire time.

I found that running with a Go Pro on a chest harness was actually very unnoticeable!! It didn’t move, chafe or cause me to sweat more. The rig is also pretty light so it really didn’t cause me to notice it. The resulting video is great!! With 1080 resolution I captured a lot. The only problem is I’m getting used to it so my hands make a constant appearance… In going to have to work on that…

I will edit my new video and share it once I have something put together. I’m looking forward to being able to share video of some of the highlights of what I get to see here in Colorado during my 🏃 s!!!

I hope everyone has a great start to their week and a happy run day!!

Lewis Puppet v2.0

Heya everyone, it’s report time!

So first off, me and the crew are still tinkering away at the next project.

As we rapidly approach the 10 million(!) mark on the original Ghost video, we are hoping to get more information out to you guys soon, though I can’t really give out any real specifics until we feel like we have something worthy of showing all of you.

Ghost was always designed to be a one off video, given that no one would have predicted how popular it would have gotten.  Many of the assets created for Ghost were designed with that in mind, with not much consideration for reusing things in the future.  Character puppets in particular were light on features, mostly there to serve as a base to build on top of and graft on random, chunky assets as things progressed.

In order to better future proof the characters, we had artsyfeathersartsyblog go in to refine the design slightly while professional puppet creator chloepoisonhearts worked on a pro-grade rigged puppet.

We’ve finally got Lewis’s puppet where we wanted it and can now show everyone, though I wanted to sort of talk through the changes to give everyone a behind the scenes look into the thought process of what exact has been adjusted with Lewis v2.0.

Here’s some side by sides of New (Left) and Old (Right) Lewis.

The changes aren’t terribly dramatic but there are certainly key differences.

-The legs are now slightly longer.  The top heavy design was definitely meant to be there from the start, though looking at it now he reads a bit stumpy.  We evened up his proportions to make him a bit sleeker. 

-The feet also got thickened a touch with some slight hints of depth in the toes to make them read a bit stronger.

-The ribs got a overhaul.  My original version of the ribs were a bit… bulbous, as I was trying to account for their functionality as they turned.  They’ve been given a more clearly defined shape and depth to them so that they are a bit more threatening looking (as opposed to the sausages that were the original ribs.

-His arms are a bit more beefy now.  It’s weird looking back on the old one and seeing exactly how friggin’ tiny I made the upper part of the arms.  The plates on his gloves got a bit more depth to them as well.  Also, somehow his hands got slightly BIGGER from the old version(???).  Oh, also sleeve buttons, because hey, there was a lot of empty space in this arms so why not?

-The glow on the hair has been reformatted into a graphics symbol based Softened Fill Edge from what was once a Movie Clip based glow filter.  Long story short, this is to make his hair way, way, WAY more stable in Flash, because Movie Clip effects can introduce a lot of shenanigans, especially if you are doing a lot of zooming in or resizing.

Here is what the wire-frames look like (again New (Left) and Old (Right)).

Under the hood, the new puppets have been given some proper joints for the limbs, where before they were just straight up stiff, single shapes.  The lines of the old version were converted to fills, hence why the new outlines are more chunky looking.

Oh… and due to popular demand….

Actual back poses!

The mystery of what his ribs look like from behind is now officially solved!

And that just about covers things.

At some point, we will be revisiting Arthur and Vivi’s puppets to give them similar tweaks and adjustments and we will show them off when they are ready as well.

In the meantime though, I leave ya’ll with something that’s been a long time coming.

A fully spinning Lewis~

*P.S.

For those of you keeping track, his height is exactly the same as before.  That has not changed.

*P.S.S.

The heart is still a thing, but for the sake of this display we don’t have it on him yet.

**EDIT

Reworked the preview images because I forgot how bloody tiny Tumblr makes images that are a certain sizes. Blurgh.

anonymous asked:

I'm so upset about Valmani. I honestly do think Val and Normani knew they weren't going to win this. I watched the whole show and their good vibes seemed low/off I mean they were smiling and stuff but they never seemed excited. Dwts has to be rigged. And all those pros and judges know it! Sharna has the nerve to say "why are all these harmonizers mad at me you should have voted harder" bitch people stayed up all night voting and the fucking system wasn't working for everyone. This some bullshit

I had a feeling it was rigged when val posted that pic on ig with the caption “when she’s being more adult about it than you are 👀” i feel like they were told and she was just like “oh okay” and he was obviously pissed, because like it’s unfair and they can’t do anything about it.
