Presentation and Promo at Photoshop User Group meeting

Mark your calendar and come see us at the San Diego Art Institute in Hazard Center near Mission Valley/Fashion Valley. Saturday November 8, at 1pm, we'll do a demonstration of the River Canyon tutorial techniques to create mountain range dreamscapes with snow. This event is hosted by the San Diego Photoshop User Group. We'll show how to quickly create various types of landscapes, snowy mountain scenes, even sandy desert dunes or frozen planets and scenes reminiscent of Monument Valley/Canyon lands, and talk about how to use Howler 9.5 as a companion to Photoshop in this creative process. We'll finish with a short animation, if only to pick the preferred single rendering amongst a few.

There will be a special promotional discount for those attending. If you can't make it, read below for the next best thing.

November is Movember

For some, Halloween October 31st is the date that marks the day when it's ok to paint your face with a funny moustache.  It lasts less than a day.

For others, it's November 1st that marks the beginning of a month-long tradition: Movember, with an M, as in Mo, short for moustache. But, you don't paint it,... you grow it!

This is all for a good cause, to raise awareness for a good cause: us. As in, us dudes. Us guys. Our health, our good health, makes it possible, for example, to continue to develop Dogwafle, on less than perfect conditions.  So what's not to like about Movember?

Not the hairy type?
You might not have time to grow it, or you might just not be the hairy type...

Z-buffer Art

When you do a 3D render, there is some interesting stuff happening in the Z-buffer, which collects and stores the depth or distance of each rendered pixel. If you map the range of its values to a grey scale from black to white, or similar, you'd be surprised whay comes out at times. Here's one that looks like a misty landscape by itself. The actual rendering got lost, it wasn't that impressive, but we exported the Zbuffer and found this one. Looks like a very rugged mountain range in a misty, foggy atmosphere.
