Showtime: SIGGRAPH 2012: Technical Papers Preview Trailers


*Wait a minute — since when have technical conferences been doing “preview trailers” of unreleased “papers”?

*I wonder if any of these forthcoming SIGGRAPH papers involve any actual “paper” at all. “Yeah, here’s my lab’s brand-new work on interactive facial-recognition in calibrated three-D projectors — clips, illustrations? Why no, I just described everything we do in my lucid English prose.”

Inspirational Graphic Works Roundup


This time, i will not feature tutorials. Instead, i will show some inspirational work to give you some ideas for your own work. Usually, the inspiration comes from the cultural, environmental and economical moment you are passing through. The mix between these 3 factors grants a final unique result that even the author will have difficulty to achieve later on. So, don’t waste your time thinking what you would do, let it go inside you and open your mind to new ideas. Hope that the next examples will help you do that.

GIMP v Photo$hop


GIMP is an excellent, pixel-based, image manipulation and editing program. It's free and open source software. You can use it to edit photographs and other graphics. Or, you can create stunning graphics from scratch with it.

Originally, GIMP was a Linux/UNIX program. However, it has been ported to the Microsoft Windows platform -- that effectively makes GIMP a cross-platform (XP) program.

Origins of American Animation


The development of early American animation is represented by this collection of 21 animated films and 2 fragments, which spans the years 1900 to 1921. The films include clay, puppet, and cut-out animation, as well as pen drawings. They point to a connection between newspaper comic strips and early animated films, as represented by Keeping Up With the Joneses, Krazy Kat, and The Katzenjammer Kids. As well as showing the development of animation, these films also reveal the social attitudes of early twentieth-century America.

Renderosity


Renderosity has been an online community since December 1998. Its original name PoserForum.com was changed to Renderosity in October 1999. The name Renderosity was created and voted upon by the online community of artists. As the 2D/3D graphic arts industry grew worldwide, there became a need for a medium of communication that could link this diverse, international group. Renderosity has filled that need. Today, Renderosity is the largest online community for 2D/3D graphic artists.
