Photorealistic painting; Make your own "Cars"; more

  • Artist Cali Rezo creates some beautiful, photorealistic paintings in Photoshop, as well as more stylized pieces.  She shares some behind-the-scenes snapshots, as well as a step-by-step animation of a piece coming together. [Via]
  • I Met The Walrus is an Jerry Levitan’s story of how, as a 14-year-old in 1969, he snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room & recorded an interview.  The trailer (or is it the whole film?) features some great illustrated animation.  (More on the story is here.) [Via]
  • Make your car resemble those in "Cars" by following this tutorial.  Appropriately, a Pontiac Aztek gets a goofy, gap-toothed grin & actually looks better as a result. [Via]
  • Weirdly, I encountered the same topic on Autoblog just the next day.  They’ve posted some great examples, and now their collection of images is growing.

For more automotive rendering bits, see previous.

    Really love most of your stuff. There’s another great site you might take a look at. They credit you and have lot of other cool information. Not sure what their title is now cause it looks like they’re changing.But, it’s or http://www.imaginginsider.com.
    Thanks, John!
    [Cool, thanks for the lead, Ringu. I’m not sure the world needs to hear more from me (! ;-)), but I’ll check out those sites for other good bits. –J.]

    Hi, I don’t know what’s going on, but I’m using FF 2.0 I I can’t see the background image of your site. The text comes out black on gray. Awful! What’s going on?
    [You’ve got me. This site always looks a little weird in FF on the Mac, but I haven’t had the time or patience to figure out why font sizing is totally different than in Safari and IE. –J.]
