1. Didja accidentally blow through the whole, "We're using our real names" thing on registration? No problem, just send me (Mike) a Conversation message and I'll get you sorted, by which I mean hammered-into-obedient-line because I'm SO about having a lot of individuality-destroying, oppressive shit all over my forum.

  4. I look forward to seeing a match move with a real camera, the one you did with R2 was great, really makes it feel like the object exists.

    Mike: With respect to your discussion of getting R2D2 color right and ultimately having to take a picture and choose it from the photo, what was the medium your final product was going to be in? Were you doing film out? Or were you trying to match the color as it appeared in the theater?
     
  6. Even his color as it appeared on Eastman Kodak negative stock in 1976 varied somewhat, but that was generally the reference point. It helped that I had been working on a 4K restoration of Star Wars and knew what that target was to a very high degree of accuracy. But I have to adjust him for every output that he's used in, whether that's print or something online or HD television or whatever.

  8. I accidentally blew out my last update, but here is an updated one, anyway. This is a "penultimate" version - with many edge details and additional wear and tear still necessary.
