ICE AGE 3


the old 3d classic is here again! Now we`re going into dinosaur realm and it`s a good time spent there. It`s really fun, there`s lot of happening and it`s also high quality cg animation.
Blue Sky used their hair render they used on Horton and also environments with lot of plants and clouds/fog is looking stunning. There`s a scene high up in skies with a cloud vortex, speachless. The rest as well, things that Sid`s rig is doing are nuts. The story is simple but not dumb or boring, nicely balanced. All well done!
Here`s Making Of article. With focus on fx development.

xray and CT anatomy

I`ve made a public album of X-RAY human (and few animal) skeletons. Feel free to browse. I`m going to expand this as time goes.


also I`ve made a CT scans album and I`ll be adding lots of images as well in future:

Both links are now added to my blog links.

This can help riggers to solve problem of correct joint placement in 3d character models, but also to understand the function of inner body structures and the reason for certain bone shape, position in human body and the flesh grown around them.
