hehe, a friend of mine always thought Daniel Craig looked like Joe Camel and you can really see it here. :P

Awesome rendering, wow.

hey there! I just went through the whole thread myself as well. I completely love the waterfall scene (I think the blue reflective light was what did it :D )! The yellow bird with blue-green shadows on the first page was also great. (I just saw Kung Fu Panda about a week ago, and I think ever since ...

you know, I didn't bother to watch Casino Royale again before seeing this, so I have to admit that the plot ties between the two films were lost on me at first (even though I knew they said it was a direct sequel). It probably does add another layer to the viewing experience. I think I'll give CR an...

Quantum of Solace

So I was surprised to find no topic! So, I'll start from beginning I suppose. I first heard the song in a music video about a week ago, and it really wasn't grabbing me at all. When put to the title sequence (which is back to live action and scantily clad female sillouhettes) it's a TINY bit better,...

I'm going to get my friend to pick this up and Crogan's Vengeance when he goes to SPX. Sadly I don't have the cash right now, haha.

I'm willing to bet that the majority of the people here use the full version. I had Elements for about a year because it came with my tablet, and I was too happy to upgrade to full. Bottom line is that full version has sooo much more than Elements as far as customization and control goes, its just n...

I have now been able to take this knowledge and retroactively apply it to traditional media. I I've had this happen many a time! Yeah, I'd say painting and inking is about the best thing to use digital media for (unless you're doing some heavy drybrush or other special techniques). I also agree tha...

so I know this is a little late, but Watterson's review ( http://online.wsj.com/public/article/SB119214690326956694.html#CX ) puts an interesting spin on things indeed. I might not be well read enough or something but I couldn't help but smile when he pulled out words that I had to look up like "avu...

and rayman, as well, if that's what your avatar is. : ) Yeah, I would have to say my TenNapel List goes Jacobus, Iron West, Creature Tech, then Tommysaurus Rex. I read a few pages of Black Cherry and almost gagged, not sure what was going on there. His black placement and drybrush are just pretty mu...

But, I thought I heard somewhere that is was going to be in a watercolor animation style similar to the Yamadas?

I don't know how they're going to top these two as villains. Daniel Day-Lewis as Two Face? Oh, I was thinking about this last night, but is it possible for the academy to give an Oscar to a dead guy for best actor if he was so great? (Still haven't seen the film by the way, my friends can't seem to...

Not to mention that Harvey Two-Face looked just like he did in the cartoon as well (right down to that lip drag). : )

And it's not because the action is so impressive (though it is), but because the filmmakers and cast are so good at creating a sense of anticipation and suspense. They know full well that it's not the actual explosion, but the moments leading up to it that have the greatest dramatic effect. And thi...
