    @ SpiritDreamer.....( Glenn ) What you mean Fur Willis ? I spent a lot of time in Boston Commons back in the 60's...probably before your time whipper snapper.
    Thanks for stopping by...as you can tell , seems like there's not enough time in the day to do art, allways busy working to make ends meet.....
    Will look at your thread later on, though the peek I took made me wonder what your goal is, or do you have some deep seated OCD about half naked boxers ?? LOL....
    I will say that last Altar piece you did with the lion was awesome, the one thing that bothered me a bit was the cg perfection of the lines and corners....
    All in all a wonderful thread as you know.......Deke

    Kevphil....Hey Thanks Man...The technical part of this computer art has always been the hardest part for me, so i'm glad you can see some improvement in that area..Hard for us old folks to grasp all of this technical stuff sometimes..After all,..we weren't weaned on computers and the technical stuff that comes with them,...like most of the youngters in this forum and field of art,..and some of it is just hard to digest...at least in my case, I know it is..But the basics of art will always be there, and the full understanding of those basics will always tell the tale of failure or success..No getting around that fact, not when it comes to art, ..good art that is...

    Hey Deke/Blue...You have a couple of years on me..so i'll let that whipper snapper slide....Having been a Teamster most of my life,...I am a firm believer in senority..
    While you were hanging out in the commons, I was hanging on the corner over in South Boston with the rest of the hoodlums I grew up with..I'm Lucky to have survived that part of my journy..most of us didn't,.. between the draft and the street, both of which were killers in those days....I grew up around boxing, and boxers, so I guess that's why I am into them now with my art..plus I like the challenge that comes in trying to create action, and figures in action...and hey, ..I put trunks and shoes,and gloves on those guys...what else do you need when boxing..besides the skill to keep from getting killed....LOL..
    Thanks for the visit guys..Much Appreciated..

    Wip. Started working on the ring that these boxers are in...

    Did alot of work and sculpting on these two boxers to get more of a likeness of Mohammad Ali and Joe Frazier..This is the second fight they had..where Mohammad Ali won when the fight was called off by the ref because Joe Frazier wasn't looking too good... both eyes closed up and his forhead was swelled up pretty good...Good call by the ref.
    Next i'm going to do their first fight..where Joe Frazier came on strong as Smokin Joe was known to do and nailed Mohammad Ali with a massive left hook that sent Mohammad Ali falling to the canvas ..losing him that fight..This will be in honor of Joe Frazier who just passed away yesterday..R.I.P. Joe Frazier..Gone, but Not Forgotten

    I wasn't sure where you were going with this at the beginning, but am now realizing this is getting to be a fine piece of work.

    Hey..Thank You Blue.....Funny how things happen sometimes...I didn't have any particular fight in mind when I started this experiment about a month ago or so....Just found out that Joe Frazier was sick and getting ready to pass on the 6th of Nov....and here I am working on this historic sequence of fights between Mohammad Ali and Joe Frazier for the last couple of weeks....Life is Strange at Times,..Makes me wonder sometimes...Am I just a Pawn in some Strange Game..

    Anyway,..Started on the fight this morning between Mohammad Ali and Joe Frazier...The first fight between them ..The one where Joe Frazier knocks Mohammad Ali to the canvas with that massive and deadly powerful left hook of his.
    Just some quick simple gestures this morning while trying to figure out how best to visually describe this historic knock down that left Joe Frazier holding on to hisTitle.

    A longe time friend of mine over at CG Talk sent me this link yesterday...It might also be useful to someone in this forum, so I thought I would share it here in my sketchbook in this forum...
    The link is in her post to me,..posted below..Enjoy...

    Hi Glenn

    It's been a while since I visited and it's great to see you still powering along with inspiration and dedication here I was driving home from work only yesterday and heard about Joe Frazier... you're certainly picking subjects in the moment (even though you're working on a past event). Your 3D work is really going places Glenn - to me this piece is starting to look like a slow motion shot: complete with 'sound effects' et all Nicholas Dunlop, a film artist from Australia - and the Australian Dance Company, created a movie using ultra-slow-motion camera where short clips show people interacting through dance, boxing, argument and other drama - these were then shown on large billboards across the world... You might want to check this out (as it may clear up my ramblings ) Link to snippet on Collision Course

    Holy shi.... stuff!!!!
    That was amazing even though it was an advertisement!
    If I could do that I would get in so much trouble!!!!

    Thanks for showing us that!!

    Its interesting and cool that you were making this stuff with Joe Frazier when he went, I'm not one for odd coincidences but this is a good one.

    Cheers!

    nope...
    I don't know what I'm doing but I'm doing it anyway.

    Hi Mealea..Glad you enjoyed that link..Pretty powerful and amazing stuff.....About coincidences...I wonder, and I guess that's the whole point of them...I Wonder..Who Knows...

    Some more work done on the gesture of Joe Frazier as he lands that powerful left hook of his, and sends Mohammad Ali flying down to the canvas in their first title fight....I will work more on the hesture of Mohammad Ali next...Once the gestures are there, I will refine the sculpts, get their emotions in place for the action taking place, and make them look like who they are, and what they were going through.

    yo do you ever look at the paintings of George Bellows? That guy worked out some fantastic boxing compositions. I think his earlier stuff is a little better and more fluid. Later he got really in to the golden section thing and his work got kinda stiff. Anyway you should check him out for some inspiration. btw - I think people rate this thread low because they don't like thinking outside the box. Yeah ok, so some of the stuff isn't that great technically... but I don't think that's the point at all. There is obviously a lot of creative expression and experimenting going on here. The stuff looks fun and he's just letting it flow. Nothing wrong with that. I mean how many perfectly rendered t pose mechs do we wanna look at??
    hope you don't mind this pic. ---

    Hey..Mealea...Thanks for that link...It's a good one..alot of talent and knowlage of 3D there...

    Hey there Ehren...I was looking for his works the other day, but couldn't remember his name..So thanks for posting one of his pieces in here..Deffinitly an inspiration.I remembered his powerful expressive brush work and the energy that it captured in his work...It's hard to capture that same feeling using 3D, but i'm trying my hand at it anyway...I much prefer doing actual traditional painting where the energy of the brushstroke comes from the shoulder and is transferred to the canvas...I worked that way for most of my life,..but I also like the challenge of learning this new digital art computer technology..It's just another frontier to explore, and the possibility of exploring is what makes it exciting for me..Never knowing what's around the corner keeps it an adventure, and thinking outside of the box,..well,..that's what keeps it a frontier..for me anyway..
    About rating...it's way overrated, and lacks merrit...Just a form of manipulation to control and keep people and art locked up in someone elses box...It's not how well the package is wrapped, it's what's inside that counts..LOL

    CASSIUS CLAY/MUHAMMAD ALI vs SONNY LISTON 1964/1965.
    I remember listening to this fight on the radio with my father when I was a kid. Thought it a memory worth saving. Decided to put me and my father in the ring-side seats.
    A feeling that was, now is.
