The Colour Red..
Has anyone noticed that the colour red is stereotyped to one (or both) of two things: sadism and sexiness, especially in anime.

Lighting in Blender
Couple of important tips when doing lighting in Blender, taken from the current book I’m reading:
- The wrong lighting will ruin a shot, regardless of how fantastic your modelling and surfacing.
- If you can light a scene effectively without any custom surfacing, you know you have done it right. If you can convey the mood and setting of the scene properly through the lightning alone, then your job is almost done.
- Do your lighting first, and make it good.
Fairy Tail The Movie – Priestess of the Phoenix
I watched the Fairy Tail movie the other day, and like most of the story arcs in the Fairy Tail series it plays at your heartstrings. I do like the way the story was structured. There was a separate 12-minute short which tells how the central girl (Eclair) and her stuffed animal friend (Momon) came to meet – by the time you meet them in the main movie, they’re already together.
At the beginning of the movie, for the first 10 or so minutes, there is no audio, just visuals and music. No audio means no subtitles and this forces you to pay attention to what’s going on in the screen. As the course of the film progresses, you learn more and more about the events portrayed in the first 10 minutes. You also learn more and more about the Phoenix mentioned in the title and the background behind Eclair, who is suffering from partial amnesia. Bombshells abound are revealed in the movie about Eclair and the finale is really heartbreaking…
