I create a lot of graphics on my SGI's.
Mostly 3D stuff with blender, and shake to composite it all together.

All of my wallpapers were cobbled together with GIMP on my Octane.

You didn't specify 2d or 3d. :wink:

I've done all my 3d work for FlightGear on my O2. You can find a few here:

You have to keep in mind that these are not high level of detail models since they need to work properly in a real time environment.

Oh, another thing; The models have improved since these screenshots have been taken and the Fokker-70 model has a complete interior (I just had to do that once :) )

Well, this was created on an Indy running Photoshop with a 12" WACOM tablet:

Not great, but I should have some stop-motion animation to put up shortly, but I want to get the onion skinning working so I can smooth out some of the animation first.

I quote lewis:

lewis wrote:It's when you overlay two or more frames so you can see how they differ, usually to see how something's moving. With layers. Like an onion.


Right now I'm only using a guage for measurements (animating "blind" like Obie and Harryhausen did it.)

Oh! Like what you do with a lightbox? I used to have one of those and I tried to make a few simple animations. It worked but it killed my arm.

My wrist constantly hurts, yet I persist. Apparently, I like pain or something.

So does mine but the lightbox crosses the line.

I just do the same thing in Gimp now. I take a sketch then I cut it to half opacity and I draw the heavy lines in a layer over it to make inked pictures.

SkyBound, is your avatar picture CGI? Where's it from?
