Ditto!
Sys, thanks for the very detailed response (as usual). cool
Man, you've got to eat and breathe this stuff.
Not unexpectedly, a lot of odd timings and coincidences.

I wonder what they are looking at to make their jaws drop? PI's are always noticing and finding stuff.

Thats why I picked the picture too! It was irresistable the jaws dropping..like maybe they saw one of the poles grow legs and walk off.
And that cigar..is like the icon of the other side..a cigar is just a cigar...hahaha How many times have we heard that..but it makes him look so distinguished 'in control"
I'm still laughing .smiley

I saw HPOs latest Brown Pig, very very well done I might add..Its nice to know when we order they are making them in colors.now..Designer pigs. You know they have pigs, rabbits and fish that glow now! True..
So far we have Isaac Black, Leviathan Green, and HPO Brown..

Those dutch are something else with paint and colors.
They have a gift! But all this for free? I happen to know they are exceptional shrewd businesspeople too..
Remember how far almost Jan Blai flew that kite!
I just don't know why he and his company do not just come out and sell models like toy makers and modellers do for all the action figures all the time...That would be a good revenue stream..for themselves..after all, no one owns the design do they? they are from outer space, Isaac said so wink The Warners people can't do anything right?

User Image
I think maybe HPO has his finger in the dike for other reasons smiley
I would love to see his display he said he was going to use at the trade show he mentioned for his/the company.
He mentioned that last year. He never commented how it went, or where it was at, or we could see it on display. Does the company do prop designs for studios too?. It doesn't hurt to know that.
I know they must have been thrilled smiley as we are of him .
So I hope he can enlighten us.
We are so excited for him.

Oooh! I can't wait for the action figures! I found this sneak preview online. This is supposed to be Isaac, stuffed shirt and all. I sure hope the others are this good! I really want the Surly Bartender.

Hmmm. I wonder what Shirley will look like...

Ah, here she is. Man, you can't keep anything secret with the innernets around.

Wow Double that is Art after my own heart. Gee how did you get Shirleys dress with nodes on it..?whoaa ,,
That captures the essence of this thing. If we can miniaturize the PI's with those expressions on their faces, we can have an entire game collection, and a few lookalike believers added , well, gee we can even market a chess set after this!
Say remember Sylvia, did you know her last name is really shoemaker...maybe Joe schumacher was like a european cousin or something. I never was into geneology, not many of my ancestors ever sent me a nickel even while alive. so..what the heck.

Sid was great in that stuff tracing origins, I remember him commenting on HPOs duplication of the colors and letters exactly.
amazing. HPO is a true artist.. smiley you find them usually in counterfeiting art also. Art is art .Fabulous stuff there too.
If HPO is smart he can make a killing, as they won't come foward, thats assuming he wasn't part of the setup to begin with.
Look what he can get..just for the teeny stuff.

The hunter Killer is like 400 dollars or 800 pounds for a 20 inch model,
Lets see what HPO is really made of now.

I'd like to see HPO's latest classic color ones rendered with some film grain or printed then phographed with film then scanned. Throw in a few strands of hair or dust for good measure. The CGI stuff is nice and all but I want to see what it looks like when going for the Isaac image effects.
Of course, these could be physical real models for all I know. They still lack that certain something. Less contrast vs. Isaac's for one. I wonder if the Isaac images were that good it would have been less believable?

I am sure one day when they repent, they'll explain how.
Numbers is going to the pole for the anniversary, Its not for a pennance pilgrimmage I'm sure.

If I recall Isaacs had surrounding rings without support, allegedly by rigid spatial spatial forces even when off. a rather nagging problem,so they must have been powered on, or something to that effect. This look like they have the support in, but dont seem to be floating.
.

HPO responded to an explanation back july 2007 at OM for that using same reasoning to point out the fallacy with that.

Hi, yes I've red that, but that's why I have said in the (off position) because when the (rim) parts are next to the object on the ground the object isn't collapsing under it's own weight.

I hope he doent think I was being hard with him here, its a great opportunity to get the exposure .But it needs support from the people clammoring for it..and they have been strangely silent on the matter, given that they were familiar with scenarios like that and other than OMF and LMH and DRT, no one else gave a squat..to put it bluntly. rolleyes
I think he mentioned once he was worried about people think DRT was getting the money. That didn't sound right after all, they don't own it as far as we know.

So lets see if he shows us the trade show pics..
that will be the real treat.

This might be a product of the Caret project. wink I don't know what kind of special field the parts are exposed to. Maybe it's just the techno music you hear as the thing "boots up."



As if having robot manufacturing machinery being made by other robots weren't hard enough on the job market!

It also looks like they figured out a way to integrate regular old nuts and bolts into the software, which is really smart, especially with sunspot activity picking up. They'd have all sorts of warranty headaches if people were driving along and something caused the car's Isaac field to collapse, and engine parts spilled out all over the highway.

I see they cleverly labeled the thing as "3D Animation." I'll just bet Saladfingers is in on this!

[color=Yellow]It's been a long time since I said anything on here. Life has gone on in my absence. Everyone should appreciate the simplification that has just occurred to this site. I got a little sick of all the friggin loading my site did everytime I showed it to someone (and I'm on DSL, so I can't imagine what you guys on modems thought). I'm going to keep it simple from now on. I may update the design from time to time, but I think just enough navigation to get around is appropriate for the time being. I would like to get back to some more art before I die.
I still work at a Buzz Interactive, a web design firm in Toronto, as Lead Designer. I'm still trying to peddle my game proposal to anyone that will listen, and I'm still up until 3-4 AM playing video games (currently Unreal Tournament, Quake 3 Arena, and Descent 3).

I probably won't be updating this chatty bit as much as I did in the past when I had it here, I would really like to get back to doing more of my own personal work. Drop me a line if you have any questions about any of the work contained in my gallery. I have stopped accepting freelance web work, so please direct any work-related correspondence to

Hi I'm UFO and I have no idea what I am doing in this post. Do I look confused? Yes.
Are you a UFO too? I knew it!..good..
I hope you liked my singing. I sound like milli vanilli ..maybe nine inch nails..don't I? everybody says so.
This is payback to Droneonline for not signing me up at upityup label.. He wants me to work for free. Hey! I have to feed little Jeremy and the wife. What does he expect?
Keep looking up at the sky.. but not when birds fly over.
Thats my contribution..for this thread.
Wisdom of a UFO
bye bye

A drone is a drone is a drone. Eye candy at this point IMO. I get the feeling someone is trying to promote their CGI abilities as of late. Probably early on as well.
