And just as the old coal mine canaries alerted miners to invisible gases and fumes, the camera is capable of capturing moments that might pass unrevealed, or undiscovered. The striking pictures in Japanese artist Lieko Shiga’s series, Canary — currently on display at the Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam FOAM — references this powerful metaphor with images that are not immediately recognizable, nor easily understood, but that are nevertheless laden with meaning. The Amsterdam show is comprised of an extensive body of work first published as a book in 2007 — a book that has since become something of a classic among photobook collectors. Shiga’s work is strongly reminiscent of the black and white photography of Masatoshi Naito.

Bitmapped 2-dimensional character data and background scenery was individually drawn, much like today’s resurgent pixel art. Hundreds and later thousands of small graphics called sprites were the building blocks for all things visual in a game. Article Continues Below As game complexity increased, techniques developed to manage the multitude of sprites while keeping game play flowing.
The character animation workflow for Awesomenauts One topic that I have been asked repeatedly to write about, is how we made the animations for Awesomenauts. This is indeed a big and interesting topic, so today, I would like to discuss that in more detail! I have previously shown how we make characters aim in all directions and shoot in all directions, but that did not explain the workflow and tools that our artists use to actually make those animations and put them in the game.

The Parallax Scrolling Effect: 40 Examples and Tutorials In this round up, we have some fantastic examples and uses of the parallax effect for you. The parallax scrolling effect, now a firm design trend, is a technique that uses multiple background images that move at different, yet synchronized, speeds as the user scrolls down (also, less popularly, horizontally) a web page. The overall effect gives the viewer a seamless and intriguing browsing experience that just looks damn good! How to stream music or audio from your website This article will show you how to stream MP3 or WMA music or audio on a web page using Windows Media Player object and embed controls (for cross-browser compatability). This will allow large sound files to be streamed as they are played, and will work perfectly in all major browsers (eg: MSIE, Netscape/Mozilla, and Opera browsers). Look at the Multiple Track Streaming Example (36 track playlist) on the main page of my site to see another more detailed and practical example / application of the same streaming technique described in this article. Another example where a variation of this streaming technique is used is within my Automated Jukebox (22 songs).
