VCL Pick of the Day
Well, it's been a few days since I posted my Pick of the Day, it's all been a few days since I've had a chance to look at the VCL, too. Lots of things conspiring to consume my time, including Further Confusion, which was a lot of fun, and it's something I really ought to write about in the coming days.

But... lets get my self-imposed task out of the way. Over the past few days' worth of uploads to the VCL, there's lots of good stuff there (lots of drek, too :P :). One by Taj stood out the most, though:

Now, that's some damn sweet rendering, there. Looks almost like a real-life model. The lighting doesn't quite seem realistic, but certainly has a 'over-saturated' feel too it, like the insides of a haunted house with coloured spot lighting throwing objects into weird reliefs. I look forward to more pieces like this from Taj, as well as one other CG modeler in the furry-fandom, Rowsby.

I just wanted to say that I really appreciate you doing this and stuff... It's nice to get a little bit of good VCL stuff when otherwise I probably won't have any time to check anything out... It's also good to hear WHY you like these things, heh.

Thanks! It's something I've been meaning to do for a while. There's a tonne of other art that I've liked, too, but there's no way I'd be able to write some copy for all of them. I think it's very important to say WHY I like particular piece, and not just say "I like this". There's enough of that out there already.

Absolutely. And the reason why I pointed that out specifically was because there's times when I might not have liked a piece otherwise, but you point out the good things in it that make me take a second look..

FYI: Rowsby's pulled his art from the VCL, and the Internet at large, for reasons not known to me. Ah well. Let's all wish him well for the future, anyway.
