Wu: Thanks for the cool followup post Sounds like you’re connecting with some cosmic deepness here Maybe we are here to find out, one way or another, among other reasons. I do not believe we are here to be deceived
Khnum: Thanks! Staggering might have been a good idea. I do like the rows effect though. The challenge of the missing head location was to make it the central subject yet not make that so obvious. Tricky stuff
MrMuscly: Thank you very much!
DanBoghean: Thanks for the encouraging feedback!
LohnC: It’s always an honor to hear from you LohnC. I am so eager to create, more than ever it seems, so hopefully I’ll be able to improve even more along the way
thelonesoldier: Thanks! I’m so glad I decided to position the head like that.
traitor: Thanks, and I know what you mean Definitely not as subtle as it could be.
b01c: Great post! Thanks! Yes, Plato’s Republic is an entire study of its own. I agree, a description and one would almost certainly hope not a prescription, especially with Plato’s proposed banishing of artists and poets and all! In a way this image is using Plato’s cave metaphor against him, just as he used poetry against poets in a sense. Even a wise person like him could be chained to a system of illusions he helped create, which is of course what happens with things like AI and the Matrix, for example.
Rogenator: Thanks The similarity was intentional so that it might symbolize something to the viewer (commonality, homogenization of thought, society, status quo, breaking away from that, etc.).
Ecks: LOL Thanks for the good laugh Ecks My sig’s been that way for a very long time now. Back in July you mentioned it as a possible Blender slogan, and I said a few posts down “For some reason I really like this one” because that was what I had had for my sig. It has also been my sig over at CGTalk for a long time too. Just for fun, i found [www.elysiun.com/forum/viewtopic.php%3Ft%3D17626%26start%3D255%26sid%3D3def2dce04b8a24007f434aeb07c32c9+“free+your+mind”+robertt+elysiun.com&hl=en&lr=lang_en]](http://220.127.116.11/search?q=cache:FesEPL1EqkcJ:[url) a Google cache copy of an Elysiun thread retrieved on Feb. 27, 2005 by Google that shows my sig. It’s such a good phrase because so much in encapsulated in those three syllables
Thanks again for the feedback everyone! On to the next blend…
