An open drawing project

An open drawing project
alchemy |’alkemē Figurative: a process by which paradoxical results are achieved or incompatible elements combined with no obvious rational explanation Alchemy is an open drawing project aimed at exploring how we can sketch, draw, and create on computers in new ways. Alchemy isn’t software for creating finished artwork, but rather a sketching environment that focuses on the absolute initial stage of the creation process. Experimental in nature, Alchemy lets you brainstorm visually to explore an expanded range of ideas and possibilities in a serendipitous way. For a quick look at Alchemy in the ‘flesh’, check out the video of Andrew Jones demoing Alchemy in Shanghai – also on YouTube.

19 Factors That Impact Compositional Balance Imagine a boulder leaning too far over the cliff’s edge. Seeing that boulder you think it should come crashing down the mountainside. It’s out of balance and you feel the tension of the impending crash. A similar feeling happens in your visitors when the composition of your design is visually out of balance. In a couple of previous posts I talked about visual balance and in each I briefly mentioned the idea of visual weight in order to achieve visual balance. There’s more to visual balance than I mentioned in those previous posts and I thought the topic deserving of its own post. Character Design 2: Primer What makes good character designs for animation?

Doug Jack ordinarily Extraordinary everyday Doug Jack, Crayon Creator Art fully redefined! January 2013 Gearbox has been at it for a few years with Aliens: Colonial Marines, and I'd go as far as say that this game's been stuck in development hell, with it's development cycle starting around 2006. The concept for the game is solid, with a plotline spanning between the events of Aliens and Alien 3 regarding a search team with orders to investigate the U.S.S. Sulaco and figure out what happened to Ripley, Colonel Hicks and the rest of the team dispatched to LV-246. From a story sense, the game is so canon that the title is officially a part of the Aliens franchise.

Closer to Van Eyck The panels of the Ghent Altarpiece are coated with layers of varnish. Varnish serves as a protective coating for paint layers and has important optical functions, since it saturates a painting's colors and creates a more even surface. However, most varnishes gradually degrade over time, getting brittle and opaque, and becoming a darkened and yellowed layer that can dramatically impact the perception of a painting's colors and tonal values. Since a degraded varnish will make the dark areas appear lighter, it will also affect our perception of the rendering of volume and space. Applying a new layer of varnish over a degraded one can sometimes improve the situation for a time, but restorers routinely remove and replace old varnish layers. During the 2010 urgent conservation treatment of the Ghent Altarpiece, cleaning tests were performed to establish the condition, compounds used, and solubility of the varnish layers.
