Processing is based on Java language, but you don’t need to know Java to start developing in Processing language. Projects are called sketches because you can try out your new ideas pretty fast in the processing development environment. Continue Reading →

Building better worlds

A few days ago the “Building better worlds” slogan popped into my mind. This was a slogan of a fictional company (Weyland-Yutani) in the aliens movie. I started thinking about this thing: how can we build better worlds: we only have Earth, but we really should try to make this place into something better. It all depends on us, on you too.

You can do something about it, just make one more people smile a day, and this will bring more and more smile in the world. Just be a little more positive and be optimistic. Try to be more patient, have a little more sympathy and things will become really good.

And a thought from Ascetic Brahma Chaitanya, it is from the movie Liquid Crystal Vision:

“You are nature aren’t you nature? So if you hurt any part of nature it will certainly rebound back upon you!”.

Inspiration: Ryan Church

I am always amazed by the works of great designers, like Ryan Church. He is a concept designer, matte painter, who worked for the biggest companies like Universal Studios, Industrial Light & Magic, Paramount Pictures, and also participated in some computer game concept design (Command & Conquer 3:Tiberium Wars, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3).

You can check his portfolio site, to see pictures from different projects, like Star trek, Star wars II, Star wars III. There are also personal pictures on the site. The works are really great, nice, clean designs, powerful visuals.

There is also a little shop on the site, containing Ryan’s tutorial DVDs. A few titles: Volume 1: Rendering Matte Vehicles, Volume 3: Rendering Hi-Tech Architecture, Volume 4: Rendering Low-Tech Architecture. Now these DVDs are not as cheap as movie DVDs but they provide useful tips and everyday techniques that can lead you to successful designs.

Similar image search – Gazopa

Update: 2012: Unfortunately it looks like gazopa was shut down.

On October 28th Gazopa search engine became public. The engine is still in beta status, but it works pretty good. With this tool, you can upload pictures and find similar pictures to the uploaded one. You can also draw something and search similar pictures, or you can search by keyword.

Check out the movie:

Art is my life

I can’t live without creating art.

I often feel the urge to create: draw, write or paint: either way I can express my inner feelings or the thoughts that are going on…inside me. These things are not always conscious, but I often feel, that they must be released in some or other way. Sometimes I have problems expressing these toughts and feelings…those days I feel that I need to create something, but I can’t.

But inspiration is everywhere! Continue Reading →

Welcome in my dreams

Why dreams? You might ask that. Well: things on this pages will somehow reflect my dreamworld. I like to dream: dream at night, or dream at day. Dreams give me inspiration and they have a wonderful feeling, they are rainbow colored places, where all bad things dissapear from my daily life, and interesting, great things happen (well..sometimes crazy things happen 😀 )

So there are plenty of things that I want to upload here:

– There was a blog that I created a few years ago, I hope I can find the content of that, so I can place that here.

– I want to upload most of my works (websites / graphics / programming).

– Projects

– Writings, Sketches

– My great ideas

– CV

I also need to create a design for this wordpress blog, and maybe I need to program some stuff so it works as I really want it to work…but that will happen only later. For now I am okay with ready-made templates (I might change this design from time to time).

I want this place to continuously evolve, change, just like nature.

Please be patient until I post more things. Meanwhile you can check:
