Spain's Moyupi lets kids create their own full-color 3D printed monster toy designs. Jun 23, 2015 | By Simon For many parents, one of the most important artifacts for documenting their child’s childhood has consistently been their child’s artwork - whether it comes in the form of a clay sculpture for the table, a watercolor painting for the fridge or even a more complex painting that is worthy of being framed. But as we move into an era that allows content creators to get even more creative with the ways that they document and share their work, could it be possible to use these options to help preserve a child’s artwork in new ways that leverage these new 3D technologies including 3D printing?

For design engineer Juan Ángel Medina of Jaen, Spain, leveraging modern additive manufacturing technologies to make it easy for parents to create custom 3D prints of their child’s artwork has since become a full-time job and he is now launching a new platform to make this process easier called Moyupi.

I want to introduce you to your brother from another mother—another group of humans that, like you, is quite under-appreciated: the type designer.

Web designers are familiar with “easter eggs”—the little things they build into the code for people in the know to see and delight in. On Type Designers and Favorite T-Shirts Before I introduce you to a few type designers, I’ll answer the question that every person in the type world is asked—“What’s your favorite font?” A few type designers I love: Choosing the Right Type. When saying no at work can be a good thing for your career. May 26, 2015 6:00 am Dan LeFebvre If your first instinct is to turn something down, there’s probably a good reason for that. Before disregarding your instincts, try taking a step back and considering the impact agreeing to do whatever you’re asked can have on your work.

It’s a common scenario in any studio: You’re in a groove and your colleague pops over to ask if you’ll give them some feedback on their latest work. The simple fact of the matter is the more you agree to do, the less time you’ll have for your own work. If your first instinct is to turn something down, there’s probably a good reason for that. Why you should say no In any office environment, there’s an unlimited number of scenarios where you might be asked to do something you don’t want to do. It’s not that you don’t want to help, it’s more that you either just don’t have the time or you’re in the flow of your own projects. To manage this time sink, it’s essential to know how and when to say “not now.” Pre-emptively saying no. Invest in Digitzs | Crowdfunder.

Hi all, I really don't know how to fix this problem and this is why I start new topic. I'm working on an interior scene when I will put some furniture, in this case I started from a chair. I did model, uvw's and now textures with shaders.

I'm using blend approach, for example on the wood material there is one shader with base wood and another with dirt material, I mix them by using group masks... and this is where problem shows up. Yesterday I was working on a "clean" version of chair and was used preview/render monkey for testing. Today, I was working on dirt materials, used only preview/render monkey for testing, when finished I wanted to use F9 render and... rendertimes goes crazy. So I try few things:- changing file format for used group masks,- reset render settings to default,- switch off dirt groups or render them as seperate materials work just fine,- switch off displacement,- increase shading rate,- increase ray threshold, Current stage of render tree: fun fun fun Any ideas?

Pro tips to help you find your inner artist | Digital art. From the beginning of my career as a young artist, the worlds of JRR Tolkien have inspired me to create art.

From Frodo to Boromir to Saruman, I love to delve into their psyche and create images reflecting the turmoil and conflicts that rocked their world, and in a way mirror our own. My earlier attempts at portraying the riches of Tolkien's writings had always fallen short, not just at the technical level but on the conceptual as well. Yet still I pushed on, for my love of the story overcame any limitations I felt in my artistic skills. This, I feel, is the most important message for you to take away from this workshop: that although you may glean some wonderful new insight into how to improve your art, these images and words can never supplant the passion and belief you must have for your own personal visions.

This brave illustration project made a D&AD New Blood judge cry. University of Lincoln creative advertising graduate Tom Watkins reduced a jury member to tears during judging for the D&AD New Blood Awards. His project, When I'm a Dad, is a highly personal response to a New Blood brief from WeTransfer: envision the person you'll be in 10 years time through illustration. Watkins illustrated a beautiful children's book to inspire future fathers and launched a website to help grow an online conversation around the project.

"Such a brave, personal and unique take on the brief, with a beautiful sentiment and a maturity that belies the age of the author," said the judges. We covered the project back in March – you can read more here.

Showreel — Lunar Animation. Surreal Photographs Mix Wes Anderson And Salvador Dali. Photographer Todd Baxter doesn't try to capture real life in his photos. He's a narrative artist whose medium happens to be photography.

"I have these ideas for a scene—like two kids looking into a glowing hole at night in the woods ("Owl Scouts") or the aftermath of a burglary with a couple tied up in their living room ("Bound and Gagged")," he says, "and I try to make them happen. " His photography isn't photorealistic: It's staged, slightly off-kilter, and just a bit surreal. He uses a camera, but his work is less photojournalistic than it is painterly. Baxter's 2010 series "Owl Scouts," a narrative series that depicts Boy and Girl Scout kids getting lost in the woods, reveals how adeptly photography can be used to evoke fantasies rather than to capture real life.

For "Challenge 1: Owl Burrow—Reaching into Hole," I built a cross-section of the ground in my studio, cutting through an owl burrow hole, and shot the boy reaching into it on set. The Mill. To help promote Angry Birds 2, Wieden+Kennedy recruited director Francois Rousselet and The Mill’s expert VFX team to create a big, fun, over-the-top, live action film. Set on Piggy Island, the film transports viewers to a luxurious and delightfully surreal paradise; where happy pigs frolic in the sunshine and swim in crystal clear waters. But Piggy Island is soon revealed to be the setting of an attack by a furious squad of Angry Birds, who have been plotting to take their revenge on their archenemy, the sneaky, flightless egg-thieving creatures who share the island with them.

The film imagines a real-world adaptation of the game’s narrative, weaving fantastic imagery into the familiar world of Angry Birds. The Mill’s team, led by Adam Droy, then aided in bringing the action of this spot to life by creating a host of CG pigs, palm trees, clouds, oceans and explosions. All textures were created in Mari, again, adding micro details for dirt and specular maps. SandStorm Photoshop Action.

MeliesArt develops method for visualizing data as 3D printed sculptures. Aug 7, 2015 | By Alec A 3D printed representation of the world's biggest companies. At its heart, 3D printing is about turning digital data into physical, tangible models, but one German artist has been interpreting that in a completely different way than most of us do. Instead of relying on digital models like us, Volker Schweisfurth has been applying the same principles to actual numerical data, from lists as diverse as the world’s population to the global turnover of mayor companies, and turning that into 3D printed representations.

These 3D Data Sculptures are extremely comprehensible and insightful overviews that, like excel graphs in the nineties, could do wonders for interpreting data. To bring these interesting models to the people, Volker Schweisfurth has begun the startup MeliesArt, which sells these fascinating 3D printed creations on platforms including Sculpteo and Shapeways.

We are approaching an age where robots will transform virtually every part of our society. Over the next decade or two the robotics industry will flourish as man looks towards technology for help in doing the things which are either too tedious, too expensive, or too dangerous for our biological bodies to handle. One company leading the way in this area is the recently acquired Google subsidiary, Boston Dynamics.

Acquired in late 2013, Boston Dynamics at the time was known for their biologically-inspired robots, including the Cheetah, which could run up to 29 miles per hour, or the humanoid robot called PETMAN. This month at the FAB 11 conference at MIT, Boston Dynamics founder, Marc Raibert, was on hand to show off a new and improved version of a humanoid robot they call Atlas. Most notably, these additional upgrades include new legs to better mimic their human counterparts.
