Life in the Sea

I first started this project a couple of years ago after my tutorial series featuring the Submarine (http://davidallenward.com/tag/submarine/). After facing much impatience with Cycles, I sort of lost interest for a couple of years. When I showed the unfinished project to my fiancé (who’s a Pre-K teacher), she encouraged me to finish it so she could show it to her class. So I jumped back in with new motivation, and opted to go back to the old tried and true Internal Render, which I’ve always had more success with (I’m not a patient man, and Cycles is so slow on AMD GPUs). So here’s the finished project, Henry Seaworth singing “Life in the Sea”, which was written and recorded by Yours Truly.

Went to the zoo today with my family, took some nice photos I thought I’d share on here.

Idris Elba as Roland, The Gunslinger

Idris Elba is to play the role of Roland Deschain, the Gunslinger in the movie adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” series. Here’s a Photoshop mock-up I did combining imagery of Clint Eastwood’s “Man with no Name” and “The Outlaw Josey Wales”, and a nice portrait of Idris Elba.
