You’ve probably noticed I flout the traditional wisdom of having a set schedule and regularly posing on certain days though I try to post at least post once a week (usually) depending on my schedule.
Occasionally I just take a week off.
That doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate my readers though!
Without you I’m just building one hell of an online portfolio and resume! 😉 😛
I’m always looking for new and interesting ideas to talk with you about.
The thing is, I create a LOT of content that “falls on my cutting room floor”.
Sometimes its art sometimes is code… sometimes it’s an entire post!
I cut because I run tests and decide to take the project in a different direction… or I come up with a better solution… or I talk myself out of posting about a stupid subject… sometimes I start over and draw again and again until I get it right.
But whatever the reason, there are times I still like what I did even if I couldn’t use it for it’s original purpose.
That’s what this post is about.
Here’s a few works in various stages of completion that were either cut, completely unused or otherwise I just feel like presenting now.
Let’s start with the computer screen from Testing Sentiment Polarity, this actually got used but here it is up close.
Up close you might recognize it as the merged bot polarity graph from that post. 🙂
Next is a set of test shots I created when trying several camera angles for that same post.
Notice they say “Loading…” because I actually had the computer modeled before I had the graph ready. 😛
Also, if you are in front of a computer count the number of rows of keys on your keyboard…
Now count the rows on the keyboard I modeled… 😳 😛
Guess who was rushing to model a keyboard during Xavier’s nap and totally forgot a row of keys… 😆
You might also notice I hadn’t modeled the mouse yet either. If you look closely there are 3 other things missing from these images that are in the final feature image but I’ll leave them for you to find. 😉
Up next I have an alternative version of the featured image for the Introduction to Sentiment Polarity. This almost became the style for the screens on the other Sentiment Polarity posts.
And finally… I added a little echo… er… I mean Nuclear Neon. 😛
I hope you enjoy these images.
