NIMAJNEB SCULPTURE The golden ratio and aesthetics November 2002 Mario Livio is a scientist and self-proclaimed "art fanatic" who owns many hundreds of art books. Recently, he combined his passions for science and art in two popular books, The Accelerating Universe, which appeared in 2000, and The Golden Ratio, reviewed in this issue of Plus. The origins of the divine proportion In the Elements, the most influential mathematics textbook ever written, Euclid of Alexandria (ca. 300 BC) defines a proportion derived from a division of a line into what he calls its "extreme and mean ratio." A straight line is said to have been cut in extreme and mean ratio when, as the whole line is to the greater segment, so is the greater to the lesser. In other words, in the diagram below, point C divides the line in such a way that the ratio of AC to CB is equal to the ratio of AB to AC. C divides the line segment AB according to the Golden Ratio Sunflower seeds The golden ratio in the arts Sacrament of the Last Supper, by Salvador Dali About the author Dr.

Meet the new model set to make manga artists’ lives a whole lot easier When it comes to replicating human poses and natural movement, artists often look to anatomical models. Traditional figures do have their limitations, though, with the lack of details making it difficult to recreate the lines of a raised shoulder or a clasped fist. But things are set to change, with a new figure on the market called the S.F.B.T-3, (Special Full-action Body Type v.3). Ten years in the making, this girl has 80 moveable parts in her body, allowing for an unprecedented number of poses and anatomical designs. We take a look at the doll’s amazing details and see how it performs in some popular anime poses for the illustrator’s eye. Manufactured in Japan by Dolk Station, the S.F.B.T-3 is made from ABS resin, which is stronger than the colour range used in the first version. ▼ The lines and shadows in the hands give you incredible detail when it comes to gun-holding scenes. ▼ The eyes can even be manipulated to face left, right, up or down.

I used acrylics, and the glazes aren't as carefully done as they could have been, but it gets the point across. Oils would be a lot smoother overall, but would take a lot longer to work with. Hope this helps a bit. Making of Out Of the Ordinary Short film Making of Out Of the Ordinary Short film Out Of The Ordinary is an animated short film, which was made as a student film at The Animation Workshop in Denmark, Viborg.
