Characters and Characters and Characters

Happy New Year!

The last month of work was pretty much centered around doing a re-watch of the series in order to grab all of the characters I could. It was a bit daunting and the initial output is below (I'll share the spreadsheet out for viewing). On the last update I had just passed 200 characters and right now there are roughly 555 characters listed (a couple of duplicates and a load of tertiary background characters).

Next up: editing the spreadsheet and getting the attributes filled out so the character pages can be made.

Pictures Galore

You'll never guess this bio-defense....

Uploaded a good number of Toys to the gallery, including Zachary, Goose, Doc, a few of the horses, shooters and a watch. After seeing some really unfortunate results of neglect being posted, we started a "Toys-OMG-WHAT-HAPPENED" sub-category to the Toys group. You can check those out, good and bad, here. We have some pictures of the protoypes as well and will post those at a later time.

DIY Lightbox

If you have figures, I'll post some pictures of my DIY lightbox so you can build one to take stunning pictures of your collection.

Creator Updates

Mark Chiarello

Send some good thoughts over to former series artist Mark Chiarello if you have a moment and wish him luck getting back on his feet. Nuff said!

GV in Blender

Over winter break I gave a shot at creating GV in Blender. Visually it works, but I have a lot to learn about making a model that is printable. Until then, I've got screenshots and an .stl file to play with.

Parting Shot

Saw a picture on Twitter... and then this happened:

"I started to paint a happy Captain Foxx, but then I asked myself 'Self, was he ever really happy?' and then I let the brush find his heart...a little cobalt blue and a touch of titanium white..." said Bob Ross never.

Credit to my son for the cobalt blue\titanium white touch.
