ABOUT ME

I live in a camper van with a couple of West Highland Terriers for company.
My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.

YOGA.

This is a change but don't worry I haven't gone vegan or decided to embrace the
"Save the planet from things we can't control." brigade. I leave that to loons, virtue signalling 'Z' list celebrities, Royals and politicians. These folk though disparate are not mutually exclusive.

I now have a book on Python, the code, not the endangered snake. It is part of the computer science course at Glasgow University. It is very difficult but easier to understand than the mental state of whoever named a snail after the Grotty Thunderbird lassy. I kid you not. I just start to think folk have reached peak retard then along comes a snail called Craspedotropis gretathunberga. I haven't seen one but from the name it appears to like warm places. That rules Scotland out as a habitat.
 I was frozen this morning, horseing about in torrential sleet and a howling gale then to cap it all I noticed a couple of sheep down. I did consider concentrating on something really stupid like banning firewood but succumbed to reality, climbed the gate and popped them the right way up. Horrible, heavy, soggy beasts are wet sheep. Ungrateful to boot which will make me feel better about enjoying my Barnsley chop tomorrow evening.

Here is a short video. 


 This took a ridiculous amount of time as the 3D model from TurboSquid is very large and has a horrendous poly. count. I have been messing for a couple of days on and off. I like the result. I don't like the point lights reflecting in the floor but I tried small area lights and they didn't illuminate the girls middle very well.
These computer graphics folk must have the patience of a saint. It is possible they know what they are doing but I don't really believe they do.

Have a good weekend.

  1. I had quite a shock when I saw that heading. I had to take a look. The video looks good when viewed on full screen on You Tube. She grows like a tree. The music is has quite a pleasing ping to it.

    1. Rachel, it's the girl that is the yoga bit. I struggle to put my socks on.
      When I get the programming nodes somewhere near they follow the mesh vertices one to the next by the shortest route. The difficult bits are telling it where to start and leaving enough mesh in areas like her hair. It took me an hour or two in several sittings.

  2. I thought for a second or two with your considerable knowledge of flora and fauna and all things miniature and creepy crawly that you were, how shall I put it, taking the piss. Then I thought, no, not even Adrian could come up with that one. Sure enough.

    I'm impressed by the graphics. Full screen it's impressive in my book.

    1. Graham I have been using this procedure for about a week. I am quite pleased with this result. Beginners luck or not it may be advisable for me to stop whilst I'm ahead.

  3. That's an impressive yoga lady, just bit freaky seeing her hair through her body. I agree about the sheep, they aren't all that attractive when they are dry but down, in the rain? No thanks.

    1. Pauline it isn't supposed to be freaky, it's meant to be art. I freely admit to not having an artistic bone in my body

    1. I was lucky John. The first two or three goes left the hair bits too thin and I thought I would fail. I kept trying different start vertices and this result just pooped up.
