These deviations seem like they should exist in the universe I'm creating for my novel. Whenever the well runs dry, I just have a look at these, and I see that the story needs to go on!

Rainbow Implosion by LaurenKitsune
Rainbow Implosion
The method to the madness is that I started on the outside, only coloring the outermost shapes. Then each space on the next concentric ring was only filled with color if its edges touched the previous color. Corners DON'T count. 

I...I think I see one I did wrong. Can you guess where? Let's make it an Easter Egg!

Phil Tippett: My Life in Monsters

Phil Tippett

My Life in Monsters

Meet the Animator behind Star Wars and Jurassic Park

Watch the Interview

You may not know his name, but you’ve seen his art

Phil Tippett’s career as a visual-effects supervisor began when he breathed life into “Star Wars” creations large and small, from AT-AT Walkers to Luke’s tauntaun to the holographic fighting chess pieces.

Involved in both the design and animation of fantastical creations, Tippett lent his unique skill set to Industrial Light & Magic’s animation department for many years before winning an Oscar for “Return of the Jedi” and starting up his own studio in 1984.

When Tippett was hired as Dinosaur Supervisor on “Jurassic Park,” — a position that would catapult him into Internet Meme Fame years later — he was shocked to learn just how far computer-generated images had come in recent years. He was said to have exclaimed “I think I’m extinct,” a line which Spielberg later worked into the film.

Dr. Grant: “I think we’re out of a job.”

Malcolm: “Don’t you mean ‘extinct’?”

However, the special effects in “Jurassic Park” were revolutionary in particular due to the seamless marriage between computer-generated and practical effects provided by Tippett and his team. His understanding of detailed movement and behavior resulted in the hyper-realistic dinosaurs that set the film apart from CGI in other films that can often look overly synthetic and sterile.

Phil Tippett’s perseverance to his craft stands as testament to the fact that artistic skill can adapt and flourish over the years. It doesn’t need Dino-DNA to save it from extinction.

Your Thoughts

  1. Which fantastical creations from the “Star Wars” universe inspired you as a child?
  2. Have you ever wanted to create stop-motion animation?
  3. Are you Team Practical Effects or Team CGI? Why?

Umm hi, sorry to bother you, I'm having a hard time dealing with an art thief for about a week or so and it's just getting stressful and frustrating
I've tried reporting her, I've been told to fill another DMCA takedown request which I already did, but it's getting no response since Friday.
The user's entire gallery is made of art stolen from others, we've tried spreading the word about her and warning others on her profile but she's hiding our comments.
If you think you can do something I'll note you the name of the user and proofs to what I've said here.
Thank you.

Why did you use my animations to represent Phil Tippett's?

Can you understand? Some people think I am Phil Tippett? I am getting tons of FAVs that I don't deserve?
