Hello!  Here's a motion-graphics thing I've been working on using POV-Ray, along
with some markers and pencils.  The drawings were scanned, then I used the
trace() function to get the locations of the inked and colored lines and turned
them into many, many cylinders.  I posted something similiar back in '11 when I
was first working on the whole concept.  Didn't go as crazy as I could have with
the textures; the focus of this exercise was, well, focus, or rather focal blur.
 The thought balloons were tricky, but I think they turned out pretty good.

Nice!  I love the green scaly texture on the monster.  The balloons are 
very impressive.


I find it interesting how youtube classified it.  Normally, my "other 
videos to watch" list is Colbert/Kimmel/Oliver.  But with your video 
that all switches to toddler/pre-school cartoons. :)

Thank you!  The scales are courtesy of a bump_map from a rendering of a bunch of
cylinders.  My original plan was to do an intersect with the monster's base
image (a union of cylinders) and a bunch of oddly-shaped, unevenly-distributed
cylinders for the scales, but then I spotted some bad math: thousands of
cylinders + intersect = guaranteed melted hole on my desk where my computer once
sat...  8O

I didn't think YT categorized _anything_, leastways not unless it's about cats,
lulz, memes, or conspiracy theories ;)

Interesting technique.
And the video is funny ;-)

Thank you!  The fact you thought the video was funny actually means more to me
than any technical praise :)
