this is showing a drunk foreign guy trying to get down from 7m high statue which resulted in serious injuries.
An advice - don`t drink & climb on St.Vaclav horse statue.

As a pymel user I`m very happy that Autodesk has added pymel as a part of new 2011 release. This will save considerable amount of development of class libraries in case a production is switching to python. Including Maya API was very clever step. Basically classes and functions from OpenMaya were integrated into pymel classes. Pymel in a way resembles the API class structure and combines it with maya.cmds, maya.mel and other added functionality.
Here are couple of links about new Script Editor, showing auto-completion, syntax highlighting and even object name completion (so you type "jacket" and get the choice of all "jacket*" objects in your scene - not so useful as this is hardcoded names, but still could get handy for quick scripting).

Accidentaly I stumbled into this czech website that contains very nice shots of flying bats. Hey, you never know when you will rig one... or some fantasy sexy hellish creature and you will need the wings for reference:http://www.naturephoto-cz.com/indian-flying-fox:pteropus-giganteus-photo-3787.html
and there`s more - birds, insects, even mushrooms, landscapes and flowers... - a website about Earth`s beings and their habitats. The lowest resolution is free of use (has watermark) and higher size is paid.

After the announcement of planned closing of ImagemoversDigital, there are big news about radical change of Robert Zemeckis new plans for his future bussiness. It was found by czech State Scientific Institute DNA Division that Zemeckis is family relative to famous czech animator Hermina Tyrlova.
