Yes he is. I went to the GM tech center for a symposium on Eero Saarinen yesterday and it was phenomenon. I am really glad that GM preserved much of his original designs, including the furniture. At Cranbrook King's Wood(girl middle school) cafeteria, Saarinen designed the chairs. The fabric was har...

Well, I don't have any experience with photoworks, so I can't comment on the usage of software. Generally, the model itself needs to have good surfacing to begin with, or else it doesn't matter how good you are at lighting, the rendering will still look bad. You really shouldn't use back lighting if...

If you want us to comment on the design, then show your sketches. Cus I don't have many positive things to comment based on the rendering.

It would have been cool in the Star Wars era.

No I didn't mix the paint. I was using Duplicolor cans.

Just wet sand and repainted it, looks fine for now. Still, it was weird that it happened.

Another person to mention is Eero Saarinen. Yes he's an architect, but he did furnitures as well, along side with the Eames.

There's a Saarinen exhibition going on at the Cranbrook Art Museum. Anyone in the area shouldn't miss it. We can meet up too!

It was done with Clear Magazine, which is a local design/fashion magazine. But yeah, we were quite surprised to hear about the lecture. Toyota is also sponsoring the lecture.

I was disappointed that there wasn't a Q&A session.

Weird painting issue

I was applying clear coat on a model that has been prep with primer and a base colored coat of paint, and the clear coat ate into the base coat creating "peeling orange skins". Well, if I didn't allow the base coat to dry enough, I can understand why this happens. However, I've left the paint to dry...

Was it Kia or Hyundai that compared itself to lux cars like the land rover and BMWs in a previous campaign? Some of my friends hated that, thinking that Hyundai is trying to climb higher than what it's capable of. I thought it was just another way to show that their customers are getting more for wh...

I sat at the very last row, so I didn't really see all that hand waving. Pink/white is just a way they brand themselves. Every of those "high-designer" designer has a specific theme for their appearance. Everything they wear, gesture they make, word they say, story they tell is a part of the larger ...

He talked about how design adapts to the changing world and vice versa, nothing really new for designers to know. Actually, we(me and my peers) thought the speech exceeded our expectations because we were expecting some kind of ego-fest. However, while he talks about all the great stuffs that design...

The problem is, most tutorials teach you how to use the mediums, but doesn't teach you why they are used in that particular way. What I mean is, very few actually teach you the principles of how light bounce off various types of surfaces with respect to the environment that the object is in. It's sc...
