New Fire (Exclusive)

I found these two images in my collection and forgot that I had done them. I must have finished these at some point last year and for whatever reasons chosen not to post them; maybe I wasn’t happy with them at the time, but I think that they are good enough and have decided that the first place that I shall show these is my blog, rather than flickr, for a change. So, here they are, for your consideration…

Year Of The Dragon (Exclusives)

“Tai Chi”

Sunday, 29th January 2012 was the celebrations on the Chinese New Year, The Year Of The Dragon. A year considered to be very lucky and favourable in the Chinese calendar.
I was in Manchester that day and captured a few images of the events. There was a Tai Chi demonstration, but by a primarilry white group. In fact, the days celebrations were conducted by a larger contigant of English people than I was expecting.
Later, the Dragon was unleashed on the city…

1st in Google images, 50,000 Hits & STILL counting… (UPDATE)

“FACE IN THE FLAME” continues to build on its view count, now reaching over 40,000 50,000 hits and has also featured at Number 3 Number 1 on Google’s image search for “flame”  Again, thanks to everyone who has supported this image and all my work.

Posted on Flickr  on the 96th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, (just in case anyone was interested…) back in April 2008, it has since stormed away to become my most successful picture ever. It was taken my Nikon D40, and the efix data is available on photo page @ Flickr. (Click on the image)

the seventh idol comic; remembered

***WARNING***

3 images towards the end of this post contain elements of nudity that may be offensive or inappropriate to sensitive readers or children. Please beware, but ALL the images are CGI RENDERS and are in the context of story telling only.

THE_SEVENTH_IDOL_BANNER_by_nEopol

Some of you may remember that in 2006 I began a project called “THE SEVENTH IDOL”. It was primarily an attempt at an online comic but whilst in some ways it was successful, in many others, it wasn’t.

 The_Trio_by_nEopol

My plan was to create a rendered comic and associated websites etc, and in that way, I learned a lot about website construction, rendering with programs such as Daz 3D and Bryce, as well as becoming members of such online communities as DeviantART and this very site, WordPress.

A little backstory: I’ve been a budding writer since I was 16 and have generally written screen & teleplays, but that have dabbled in many other forms such as short stories, novels, poetry and comic books, and have considered giving songwriting a go to boot!

Journey_Trough_The_Labyrinth_by_nEopolThe 2006 comic had three issues, with the first effectively being a double, but its major flaw that it was too rooted in screenplay writing and plotting, and I could not get my head around the methods of telling the story through a comic, let alone the technical problems of learning new software such as Daz 3D and the highly complex Bryce. Now I’m sure some people would have something to say about Bryce being complicated but to me it was! But I managed to get a few good renders out of it so I was somewhat happy.

 Some of the more obvious drawbacks at the time regarding my Daz 3D work, was the lack of skin textures and other details, aswell as costumes. I hope to showcase some of the improved models and sample clips from the presently abandoned animated version soon.

The comic was made up of several key elements and these were: –

– Background photographs, many of which were taken locally, in Manchester.

After three issues and the resolution of the initial plotline, I put the project on hold and felt that I had learned a lot of  the do’s and don’ts but never really got back into it as I had intended. Life, as it often does, got in the way.

 Ponder

I do very much hope to try this again with the knowledge that I had acquired over the years and was very keen to try animation, which I have tested but still have technical reasons as to why I can’t proceed right now. But here’s a taste of  the original, which for all it’s faults, I must admit, I’m still proud of. Some of the imagery in this issue is in my opinion very good, but the pacing is way to slow and is too dialogue heavy.

Better luck next time…

There are more images available on Flickr & DeviantART.

Anyway, here is the first issue for old times sake…

Back again, gone but not forgotten…

It’s been a few months since my last post but I would first like to thank everyone who has continued to follow my blog, and the hits have just kept coming.

These three images have been selected from my “Flickr Favourites” set on Flickr. These are some early attempts at photoshoping images and are a little different from my prefered, unaltered photography.

The first image, “City View” was taken from my attempt at an online comic, titled “The Seventh Idol”, back in 2006. The main image is of Manchester, and the foreground rendering was done using Daz 3D. The overall mastering of the shot was completed using Photoshop.

I must admit I do really like this image, but the comic was hampered by my lack of knowledge of the comic genre and the lack of computer power and rendering capabilities at the time. I’ve come on a way since then, but this was early days.

City View

The next image is of the Art Asylum’s Classic Enterprise from Star Trek. Taken with my Kodak Z740 against a red velvet curtain, I used the colour replace option to remove it. I then used a star brush for the stars and a couple of lens flares…

Enterprise Version 2

This final image is of the Art Asylum’s Movie Enterprise from Star Trek III. Again taken with my Kodak Z740 against a red velvet curtain, I used the colour replace option to remove it. I then used a star brush for the stars and a couple of lens flares… This was the earlier of the two, hence the cruder nature of the image.
