    Where are you going?

    So I know you have Image Ready, why not do something a little more subtle, its almost as bad as mymemmory's.

    I can't wait to see what you have in store for us all;)


    But you should know mac15 has changed his tar since he first posted this thread, so it doesn't really make much sense with his skate board dude.

    i was wondering...... his current one (skateboard) doesn't seem to deserve all the bad comments he got... ha

    it may not look great, but it's pretty creative and original, more than i can say for myself..

    the old one just said "go mac15" or something eh?

    to each his/her own...

    cleo's should be nader eating a veggie dog. or something... haha

    Ha, with the green catchup! Its doable actually. After going through B2TM's iMac 'tar, I know I can get away with a lot more. I might not even go 3D on my next one either.

    Just got to get the right concept/idea.

    Better yet, Nader picking up the bottle and squirting the green catchup on the dog:D

    yeah, i thought of that. would be tougher i think. but could certainly work.

    once cleo signs off i wouldn't mind hopping on board this particular avatar ship... of course she has a ways to go if i remember correctly. like 100+

    Hey Duke,

    Eyelikeart's eye could be made 3-d with a mac on the inside that you can see through the lens.

    Which mac? Its going to be a tight fit to get the image resolution/recognition you need for that, but it might be worth playing with. I'll see what happens when he sends me his pics.:D

    after reading the last post u made in reference to my new avatar...I'm assuming the Apple logo is what mcrain meant?

    No I got the impression it was an apple mac of some sort, which would be hard to do given the size limitations of the avatar. Sort of a Mac in the back of your eye. A great idea, actually. Might look good on the large res version.

    Oh, I'll clean up the image as well, so don't worry about missplace eyebrow hair and such. Use visine if you need to, it would be a pain to have to redo the whole eye to get rid of all the blood vessels. Oh, and don't use flashes, and keep the light sources out of the reflections in you eye. Should be too difficult.

    Thanks,

    D

    You were talking about doing a 3-D sort of avatar. The pix as described in the other thread would be 2d. I really like the idea of a moving eye with an apple shaped pupil, but that's not what I meant.

    What I was envisioning was a 3-d modeled eye that starts away from the "camera" so that it fits inside the 50x50 limitations. It then moves toward the camera and gets bigger and bigger so that it does not fit inside the square, while the camera remains centered on the lens/black part of the eye. As it gets closer, you see revolving in teh center of the eye, an imac or tibook or maybe a powermac. The image could then run in reverse to go back to the eye's starting position.

    Something along those lines would give you a real 3-d animation, and may be possible given the number of frames you have to work with.

    Ah, yeah, that would work. A lot of motion (increases the file size), but once in the eye, it would be all black, so it might work. Again, that could be done with 2D as well. I'll play around with it once I get the pics from eye.

    Thanks.

    LOL. I like the Nader-eating-the-green-ketchup idea. But my first 'tar is going to be made by me and me alone. Actually, I was playing around the other day on the Windows machine and came up with some decent... but I'll redo it when Photoshop arrives (hopefully today!!!).

    Did you know they're making purple ketchup now too?

    Next they'll be holding seminars on how to paint with ketchup, if they just get a few more colors, blue, white, black, you'd be able to mix to get any shade you'd like. Imagine the first artist to get a painting made with ketchup hung in a museum...


    Go ahead, laugh, it could very well happen.:D
