GOLD: Canada 13 - Germany 10 - USA 9 - Norway 8 ...
Today was the Greatest Olympic Day yet! 3 Gold Medals!!! Canada is now third in medal standing and leading in Gold Medals!
With Craig staying with me in Vancouver (and spending all our time enjoying the Olympics!), we are finally able to sit down and do something arty and creative. So we've decided to do something radical and potentially damaging to our friendship.
Craig work with computer graphics, while I work with pencil and paper. We thought that it would be interesting to work together and see if we can create something together - a joint dinosaur project using both of our skills!
For this, we're taking on the most famous of dinos - Tyrannosaurus rex! The progress of this Epic Event is being documented on Craig's blog Weapon of Mass Imagination.
The process works like this: Craig creates a tyrannosaur in CG, and I create a tyrannosaur on paper in pencil, and then we digitally lay one over the other to see the difference between the recreations. The point is to use both our interpretations, along with reference material from the internet and books (specifically Tomas Holtz's) to create an uber Rex. The final product will be in CG, as we are able to walk through each body part and discuss and tweak it much more easily that on paper.
Step 1: Our two images, side-by-side (left-mine, right-Craig)
I am extremely interested in where this project will lead. This is the first time Craig and I have worked together side-by-side on the same thing. We both have our strong opinions, and have already come to blows over honestly stupid details, such as adding muscle grooves and ear-placement.
Anyway, check our progress out here and let us know how we are doing! Here come the King!
