A lot of my personal contribution to @LunaticsTV
is in the graphic design for logos, patches, and decals, that make up a lot of the detailing.

These were all executed with although I have sometimes done post-processing in (to get "blur" or "glow" effects, for example), as I did with the graphics for video monitors.

My home page image today is a modified screen capture of the Blender viewport, with the main characters and armatures for the "Press Conference" sequence -- a good stress test for animated characters in Blender, which has had scaling issues with having a lot of characters in one shot.

I altered the colors to get it into a palette I wanted to use it as a title background (for "character animation and rigging").

Hopefully my pinned posts for and my bio offer some , but I'll add more:

I am presently a self-taught free-culture director and producer.

Director by choice, Producer by necessity.

The aspect applies in two ways: both that I use a completely / production pipeline, and that the project is structured around free licenses, and will be released under CC By-SA 4.0, which affects the funding model.

My daughter was redecorating her room, and wanted a large solar system poster.

So, I designed a set that reflects the "world-focused" view of the Solar System that I've used when presenting planetary science to kids -- emphasizing moons, planets, and dwarf planets as worlds in themselves.

I did a print run, and I still have some for sale in my shop. The individual posters are 19"x27".

This the preview trailer for "Lunatics!" ep. 1 "No Children in Space", made much later (2019), with a number of updated animations, though there's still some that needs replacing.

Alas, the episode is still unfinished, but I'm getting closer!

When I was a kid I couldn't reconcile that the Pink Panther movies weren't actually about the Pink Panther and it was made all the more baffling by the inclusion of the Pink Panther cartoons in the intro credits.

These people were sadist, I tell you.

Like mentioned yesterday: a new exclusively for produced track is online (+ 4 more pieces). All - the new track is this:

music.tagirijus.de/title/airst

You can hear guitars with hi hat playing in the intro. Then comes a drum break and suddenly the whole band with a driving bass is playing. The piece changes into a b part, then a quieter c part. Then the intro guitar riff comes back and the whole band joins again. The end is a increasing climax with a sudden end.

Once again, my notes and screencast logs come to my rescue...

Figuring out how to correctly configure Gitea to allow for SSH and HTTPS cloning with Git was a little tricky.

The thing is, the way it's set up, the SSH passes through to be handled by Gitea itself -- so you have to configure the SSH server it provides, not the one on the server.

Same for the certificates for HTTPS.

I'm going to have to write this up.

Seriously, though, they're hierarchical and interlaced.

There may be dimensions of 4D structural dependency here that defy the comprehension of mortal humans. Yaks may be involved...

I'm not saying it's *bad*, mind, but without speaking PHP and Wordpress Themes, I can't even tell if it is or not. And I'm certainly not going to be able to look at that and say "Oh, I'll need do do *this* to change it from a caption under an image to an image that links to a text", because all that executable code obfuscates the HTML that I do understand.

I dont inderstand ppl who go “twitter is unhealthy for me. The algorithm hides my friends posts and makes it hard for my art to get seen.” And then they decide to move to INSTAGRAM of all alternatives

Insta hid my friends posts from me for so long that i didnt know some of them had KIDS.

The @EU_Commission has begun their propaganda with the classic "Won't someone think of the children" tactic.

I won't link to that toot/thread, but @rysiek shared a link to a great Wikipedia article about this BS argument, which I do want to share:
