Learning Dark Arts

Come learn the art of 3D computer generated art and animation. This blog deals with the lessons learned and the art created by Robert G. Male using DazStudio from Daz3D. Also covered are the ancillary software, tools, techniques, and processes needed both before and after rending in the 3D software.

New Name, More Art

I've been sitting on this announcement for about a week now. It's been waiting in the wings for work to be completed for quite a while longer than that. You've heard the name before... The Battered Spleen Productions Grotesquerie. It's kind of cumbersome and sort of formal. Get ready to get even more personal and take a ride with the lights dimmed down even lower. If you dare, enter Macabre Male's Grotesquerie! ( www.macabremale.com ) Not only does it have brand new stylings and a creepy new flair, but it has almost twice as much art, jumping from four pages up to seven! A few images have more than one version; one is even a series of five images; another is a spread of three lined together. Also as usual some of the images are marked as containing nudity. All of them have voting pages in place so that you can rate them.

Duct Tape? wailttree-s.jpg Get Away From Me!

The first picture above, moving from left to right, is one you should expect to see again. "Duct Tape?" is special because the sun and the light rays were done with a new option I have at my disposal in postproduction. The second picture is one you may have seen something similar to if you keep up with the Killing Time - Horror E-Rag™ covers. This special shot was a full-page insert used in one of the issues. The third and last image is another of my West Park Lobby shots. There are actually two light sources. The one is the obvious glowing red ball, but there is also an unseen figure on the upper landing shining a flashlight down on the woman. You can bet there's a story behind that. I don't know what it is fully yet, but it's there. There is more art yet to come. I was just working on a piece last night, when I had other things to do perhaps. Go. Enjoy the macabre thrills.
