Who’s There?

I designed this fella a while ago, just for fun. So I finally decided to paint him a couple of days ago. I think he has a lot of potential as a 3d character. Maybe I’ll model him and rig him and see what he can do one day.

 

 

 

 

Star Craft 2

If you are an original Star Craft fan, you obviously know about the new release. It’s been 10 years or so since I played the original and the new version is great! Lots of nostalgia and newness all bundled into one package. Nice!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hardware accelerated GI

For those interested here is an interesting article regarding Global Illumination on the GPU.

We describe an extension to photon mapping that recasts the most expensive steps of the algorithm — the initial and final photon bounces — as image-space operations amenable to GPU acceleration. This enables global illumination for real-time applications as well as accelerating it for offline rendering.
