The Grey Pilgrim
Had a bit of fun here. This started life as a photo of me looking out over the Grosse Scheidegg in Switzerland. about half an hour in photoshop, and Gandalf is looking out over middle earth. Interestingly Tolkien is known to have visited this location as a young man in 1912, and in later letters to his son said that the holiday was the genesis of his ideas for the Hobbit and the Lord of The Rings.
Oath of Allegiance (Still from the Huntersmoon)
The hunt swears allegiance to their new master, (or so he thinks) Taken from the forthcoming Huntersmoon movie.
Standing at the foot of a statue (from the Hunter's moon movie)
The party progress towards the statues. Taken from the Huntersmoon movie, and corresponnding to the relevant storyboard pic.
A further still from the movie corresponding to the second frame on the storyboard.
It was with a mixture of horror and embarrassment that I realized I have not visited this site for far too long.
The truth of the matter is, that I've been working for the last three months on a new animation project.
And when it boils down to it, I am one of those people who generally prefers to do something rather than talk about it.
Unfortunately this is not a very good way to raise your profile,
my wife has told me off and having been summarily chastened,I am going to attempt to mend my ways! 

One of the other things that made me think twice about my actions, was that about a month ago I took part in the blender guru monthly competition.  The subject title was "another planet,"
Being a bit of a sci fi fan this was right up my street, but as I was in the middle of said animation, I thought
I would Only give myself a day for this and get back to some real work.
Having done that I pretty well forgot about it for the rest of the month, until it transpired that I had actually reach the finals!
I didn't win, the entry that did was far superior to mine, but it did make me think I'm not paying proper attention to the Internet.
So here I am to make amends, and to start off, I will upload said entry.
Anyway it's nice to be back!

See your long post , will reply at length in a short time, I think that sometimes online forgets the real world can happen, your questions are interesting and deserve considered answers. My son has just started a new course (Creative computing no less), as is the case often, this is not without incident, and when it is sorted, I will have proper time to reply.

Another year, another trip around the Sun, another level up! Congrats, and have a wonderful birthday!
CareldeWinter Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2015
It's actually been pretty wonderful this year if things have been quiet on my page recently , it is because I've been working on something really major, so watch this space! (might be a month or two though)

I went to see the last installment of the hobbit, and had a meal at my favourite restaurant. A very good day all told.
