THUMB WAR : Design Iteration Combat Simulation by Paul Richards Updated 07/04/09 Ten-hut, fellow concept grunts! The following text is a condensed adaptation of some recent workshops I've spoken at on the theory/practice of thumbnailing, and is not a verbatim transcript. Oorah!

Hints and Hacks For Doing Conceptual Art in the Video Game Industry Updated 11/09/09 Disclaimer I should preface this by saying that, despite the gratuitous mugshots on this website, I don't consider myself anyone special. Loads of people out there make a living doing what I do, and many of them do it better.

by Ethan Anderton March 29, 2011 Source: YouTube Recently we've featured some cool video montages highlighting the work of Christopher Nolan and some of cinema's finest opening title sequences . Now we have yet another fantastic look back at a niche in motion pictures as the folks at Go Into the Story (via SlashFilm ) recently found this amazing montage titled 25 Years of Pixar .

If you love Pixar as much as I do, then you'll love this fond look back into the past and may even have a few tears to wipe away. YouTube usuer NkMcDonalds put together these scenes from Pixar's expansive filmography (his list of music for the montage can be found here ), and it really reminds you just how impressive and consistently fantastic their films have been.

By Daily Mail Reporter UPDATED: 14:35 GMT, 11 October 2011 At first glance, these houses looks like they could have been the victim of a dramatic gas explosion. But the beat-up homes in Houston, Texas, are in fact an elaborate traffic-stopping work of art using the homes' own wood siding. Artists Dan Havel and Dean Ruck smashed the interior walls of the homes, before nailing the wooden planking at strange angles to complete their project. Featuring several horizontal and vertical vortices which appear to 'rip' through the interior of the first house, the designs offer a unique view out of each of the buildings.
