Have you seen any of The Hobbit movies? You might recognise this animation… and I think it’s nice to peer behind the face capture. WHat do you think? Pretty impressive? Will films of the future do without actors all together? We’ll have captured their likeness and will be able to animate them like puppets. Who […]
This incredible orc cosplay, a frighteningly good female warrior, was created by Lagueuse. The sisters in arms also manage an etsy store if you wish to join the ranks of the armour clad.
