shapes in nature: procedurally eroded terrains by switzerland-based artist chaotic atmospheres.

This is a personal project meant to experiment erosion on procedural terrains. The goal of the project was to find a good way to import terrains from World Machine into Vue. The process was long and boring because I wanted to get a very precise terrain. So each terrain is made from two tiles of 8K (for a total of 16K x 8K). This allowed me to get enough resolution, even if the “tiling” option was not perfect (some “artifacts” appeared on the tile line). So I had to postwork each picture on Photoshop in order to get rid of the “tiling artifacts”.


New Oil Paintings by Mary Jane Ansell

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on March 24, 2014
Though painted with impressive skill, Mary Jane Ansell’s work is too stylized to be considered hyperrealist. Inspired by haute couture and classical portraiture alike, Ansell’s oil paintings are so pristine, they become slightly unsettling and even surreal. Pale, aristocratic female characters appear to mill about in elaborate gowns and ornate interiors, recalling the bored, upper-class protagonists of Jane Austen novels. But there is something off about these ladies. Their state of idleness begets intrigue and mischief. Ansell captures them making subtle gestures — toying with strange objects, trying on outfits or simply reposing. But their coy gazes seem to be aimed at someone outside of the viewers’ field of vision. Some characters’ eyes express surprise and others, longing, inviting us to create our own narratives about these mysterious, enchanting women.
