    replacing one of the monkeys with the spare ones we left out of the cage who have been busy entertaining themselves doing the things that monkeys do best Inevitably the new monkey makes a beeline for the banana and gets his reward a ritualistic beating The system is now autonomous When a second replacement monkey is brought in the last arrival will quite happily join in the ensuing brawl From here it s easy to continue to the logical conclusion Continue replacing monkeys one at a time At each step the new monkey receives a beating for his banana lust Monkey see monkey do and our new monkey joins the group of sociopaths Ultimately we end up with a cage full of monkeys none of whom have ever been sprayed with water who will all happily pounce on any monkey with banana ambitions Why do they do it Because that s the way things have always been done and the inevitable punchline that s where company policy comes from link Leave a comment Looking at cloth Posted on November 17 2011 by chrisd Posted in Uncategorized Good evening bloggers Yet again another week has flown by This week during any spare time I had I spent some time drawing cloth It always amazes me how I think I know how clothes sit on people I then go and do some research and find out I know nothing about it at all When designing characters for CG it really helps understanding what a character wears and the structure underneath the clothes as this helps everyone from the modellers to the riggers and also the animators Every fold in the characters costume should be doing something either it should be showing off the structure of the character and or how heavy or light the cloth fabric is In this image you can see the structure of his legs in the folds of his coat you can also see how the folds are part in the structure of his personality how he holds himself and so on How could cloth fabric play a part in a characters personality take this guy used picture of Bogart from Casablanca for ref on the outside stands with his hand in his pocket his shoulders are dropped and he is smoking He is hiding his eyes which makes us think shifty what else is he hiding if you look closely at his coat the belt is not used properly its pulled tight and tied in what looks like an aggressive knot It really is amazing how clothes say so much about us as you can see from the silhouette even though he has a long coat and hat on it say so much about him That all for now enjoy the weekend Leave a comment Pixar Times Blog Posted on November 11 2011 by chrisd Posted in Uncategorized It s Friday again and this week I have some art work in Knick Knack post on the super
