Fursday - Watch List
because they feature animals or anthropomorphic characters.
Not gonna try to fool you into thinking it was a real show, but boy do I wish it was real!
It is in actual fact an elaborate hoax made by an unknown creative team as explained over at io9. I have a lot of respect for the creator because you can tell it was a work of love, seeding the idea that it could be real with photos of the animation cells, lunchbox merchandise and recreated the degraded aesthetics of VHS footage.
Hopefully in the coming days the creator/creators will step forth and reveal some of the behind the scene works.

Can’t quite tell if there’s use of an actual practical prop, but there’s definite use of computer graphics. Either way the fur detail is impressive, if somewhat static in facial expression but then it seems the ears do most of the communicating.

The superimposed arms and objects are kinda cheap, yet has a bit of a charm. Overall the timing and voices work well and I did find the everyday bird lives amusing.

That is one passive->aggressive panda. And when I say passive->aggressive, I mean he gives you a passive stare, then he gets aggressive.
Stunning work carried out by SYT-X to create the animations. Often I find the magic of a well crafted music video is thinking about how it was achieved. Try imagining the planning that went into making a seamless video, cropped to fit different device dimensions.

A sign of an excellent tutorial is making something impressive through simple instructions. Thanks to some very powerful brush settings in Photoshop though, fur has never been easier to paint in a few brush strokes.
Warner Bros. Production Designer Paul Lasaine has spent a career transforming live action and animated films into works of art, using traditional and digital tools to make everything from Dick Tracy to Lord of the Rings to The Boxtrolls sing. Each film presents unique design challenges.
Each film presents unique design challenges. As a Visual Development Artist on the Shrek spinoff Puss in Boots, Lasaine had to consider how actual cat fur worked in order to make Kitty Softpaws' onscreen actions as convincing as possible.
Here, Lasaine passes on his digital painting technique in Photoshop on his Cintiq, showing you how to:
- Think about strokes
- Consider lighting
- Customize a Photoshop brush
- Lock transparent pixels
- Paint using layers

Found via The Verge.I was looking for the angry ram with my fpv quadcopter, I got a bit close & he managed to hit it knocking it into a bush, luckily no harm done. When I went to retrieve it he followed me, I had my hands full so he got me pretty good.
It's an insightful craft and it feels somewhat accessible to have a go.
The reactions are enjoyable, I like observing the expressions and trying to imagine their cognitive thought processes.

To commemorate the release of 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes', here is a clip of Roddy McDowall (frequent star in the original 'Planet of the Apes' series) performing a duet with variety show host Carol Burnett.
Her expression is priceless.Carol Burnett introduces Roddy McDowall, who unexpectedly comes out in his makeup from Planet of the Apes. Carol later explains to the audience that McDowall had to spend three-and-a-half hours in makeup for that skit, we then see Roddy's condensed film of the make-up process. From "The Carol Burnett Show" 1974.

DBLG studio combines 3D animating with 3D printing and stop-motion animation to see what the results would yield.

DBLG's in-house studio projects are a platform for us to experiment with creative ideas and above all have fun. For this project we wanted to explore and combine 3d animation, 3D printing with stop frame animation. Massive thanks for Blue Zoo for the character animation http://www.blue-zoo.co.uk and Resonate http://www.resonatemusic.co.uk for the audio mix and sound design.
An overview and reminder of just how great the late 80s and 90s Disney cartoons use to be. The Nostalgia Critic makes a lot of astute observations that I had never thought deeply about before.
In most cartoons for instance the hero is either righteous, or incompetent, but Darkwing Duck was a glory hunter, fighting crime for fame and gratitude. The critic notes he is like a child playing out his fantasies and that made me consider how the series was ahead of its time in predicting the man-child of today. Growing up on comics and cartoons, they now have the ability to re-enact their childhood using the skills they have gained as adults.
The critic also timelines the steady decline in quality from 1992 onwards. Goof Troop heralded the start of Disney trying to be ‘cool’, ‘hip’ and ‘relevant’, which had the opposite effect of being aged, cringeworthy and committing the sin of targeting an audience that existed on a marketer’s excel sheet. Even as a young tyke I could tell what Disney was trying to accomplish; speaking to ‘my generation’ when in fact my mind rejected it because I felt no affinity with Max. Nothing about his American suburban life felt relevant to my life in a British terrace house. It is telling how decades on when furs get nostalgic about Disney cartoons; DuckTales, Tail Spin and Chip ’n’ Dale’s Rescue Rangers will crop up more frequently in conversation than the likes of Goof Troop or Bonkers.
One final thing I noticed is how Disney released their cartoons differently between the US and the UK. In the UK they were broadcast Saturday morning on ITV under a variety of show formats. Subsequently I was confused when Nostalgia Critic did not talk about programmes such as The Little Mermaid, Jungle Cubs and 101 Dalmatians The Series, till I realised they were not part of the Disney Afternoon slot and in the case of The Little Mermaid was on a completely different channel.
The piece does not give much away in terms of what is going on, but it does leave to your imagination world building where there are criminal gangs denoted by their chosen mask. In many respects I like how the story goes nowhere, because I am left to my own thoughts on what the backstory and context is between these groups. I would be stoked for a Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels style caper.Directed by Adam Hashemi DP(s): Mandy Walker / Max Malkin Editor: Adam Pertofsky Music: House of Hayduk Producer: Julien Lemaitre Prod. company: Furlined Agency: Wieden + Kennedy
Do people actually get hippo soft toys as kids rather than collectors? Still that hippo is hipping and hopping, so to speak.
I am told that this dance is meant to be like a funeral ceremony for a rabbit that had accidentally died during a magician’s trick.This is a routine coreographed by Wade Robson and was shown at the season finale of So You Think You Can Dance. One of the best routines I've ever seen and the concept of it is quite magnificent as well.
From this video trailer alone, Octodad feels like a combination of slapstick humour like Goat Simulator but with a touching story. The fact that people don’t recognise from the get go that he is an octopus reminds me of those Pinky and the Brain sketches where nobody seems to realise Brain is a mouse with an oversized head.Octodad: Dadliest Catch is available NOW on Steam, Humble, and GOG for $14.99. Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/224480/ Humble: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/p/octodad_dadliestcatch_storefront GOG: http://www.gog.com/game/octodad_dadliest_catch Octodad: Dadliest Catch is about destruction, deception, and fatherhood. The player controls Octodad, a dapper octopus masquerading as a human, as he goes about daily life.
