    sasquatch and fprime and g2 at work too..it shows itīs value for this kind of stuff obviously.

    a nice classical style to the image, something like a blend between a photo and a painting.
    I really thought that it was some kind of painting from a photo first.
    probably insane amount of polys for animation thou, but it wasnīt made for that so..

    his work is so good he should asked if the render can be used at the newtek stand this year....and asked if he'd like to be 'unbanned' for this forum too...

    i missed his 'critique' and his huge talent for sculpting and lighting insights here.

    Q - How many polys?
    A - All of them!

    When he wasn't being caustic he was an incredible great source of information and inspiration, but I don't think he'll be unbanned any time soon ( if ever )

    I just commented on it over there. I have to admit, he's really come a long way.

    what the heck... wasn't this guy the one that was railing about the moral perversity of digital cheesecake?

    i don't think he should have been banned. i got into a huge sling fest with him too but he was/is genuinely talented and valuable to the community - at the very least for being a refreshing simon cowell in a land of paula abduls [most members of most forums].

    oh well, our loss.

    NT should just do what CGsociety do, just unban him and review all his post before it is posted. He has a loud mouth, but I gotta respect his work, they always blow me away. This is the type of work that should be shown at Siggraph. Unfortunately, it is not pure LW.

    Ahh, but Jin, his work is "Art" and "tasteful" you see, not the same thing at all, no siree!

    A darned shame he's so caustic as it really does detract from his skills.
    Too old to die young.

    Fantastic as always.

    He should really take that skeleton off his website, it's been there forever and this is in a different league...

    I kicked up a fuss about the ban at the time, but I'm sure he's not losing sleep over it any more

    Pinheads? LOL, I just laugh at them I did appeciate him however.
    All that is powerful or long standing is first conceived in the imagination; supported by the hope of possibility and then made manifest in our commitment of our current physical reality.

    Maybe we need a "purify comment button", that would solve most problems with sarcastic postings.
    Then maybe I'ld have to apply it to my posts too
