2011 à la carte Tour d'horizon des meilleures cartes de 2011 par l'auteur du site anglais de datavisualisation Spatial Analysis. Des connections sur Facebook aux collaborations scientifiques, tout se cartographie ! Alors que 2011 touche à sa fin, il est bon de revenir sur cette année déterminante pour la cartographie et l’analyse spatiale. Les données géographiques se sont massivement ouvertes, et ont été rendues largement accessibles, conduisant à la production presque quotidienne de cartes inédites et intéressantes. L’usage croissant de technologie telle que les Google Fusion Tables a rendu la cartographie des données plus facile que jamais. Le nombre de cartes affligeantes est malheureusement également en augmentation – en grande partie en raison de la préférence du web pour la projection de Mercator et les “push-pins” (“punaises”). Pour trouver l’inspiration pour une nouvelle année de cartographie, et sans classement particulier, voilà le Best Of 2011 de l’analyse spatiale. Voyage dans la galaxie
Principles of Animation "Not only do sympathetic characters need appeal in their design, but villians and comics should have just as much. Appeal is the pleasing and fascinating quality that makes a person enjoy looking at any drawing" John K Stuff blog is a really useful blog site for gripping the basics of these principles. An obvious example would be to look at the Disney Princesses, as the protagonists of the film, eg. From a brief look at the Disney Princesses, their physical appeal is similar through out - large eyes - heart shaped faces- symmetrical faces are thought to be the most appealing - usually long billowing hair (free loose hair has sexual connotations linking back to the 1800s) - petite waist - further emphasising their femininaty - clothes tailored to exentuate breasts Again the physical appearance is the initial appeal of these characters, aswell a personality traits (will discuss later). Good night!

www.keithlango.com- Pose to Pose Organized Keyframe Animation Article So what's the Problem? In my first animation tutorial that I wrote over three years ago, I outlined a fairly common (but under-documented) methodology for managing one's keyframes in CG character animation. The point of that tutorial was never to declare that it was the only path to great animation, but was merely a suggestion for one way to approach your animation in a sensible, organized fashion that hearkened back to our traditional animation roots. Well, Smart Guy, How DO You Go From OK animation to Great animation? Thanks for the Personal Testimony, But You Didn't Answer the Question....After a thorough analysis of my work up until that point, and then another analysis of of the work that I admired, I started to note a trend. OK Sparky, So You Wanna Share Your Fancy-Dan Checklist?
