Unreal Snowy Landscape

Finally got around to adding the tiling ground texture to a snow landscape.  I'd like to eventually add some rocks and maybe some other vegetation and trees.

Minsky, Emotiv, Brainwriter

Minsky mentioned the Emotiv presentation in his lecture, and I was really curious to see it and the possibilities of drawing with only your mind.  Apparently though there's not a lot of control through an EEG.   However, the Brainwriter device( ), which is using KYND, has managed to allow for some pretty amazing results with such limited controls.

Ocko bun!

I had to make this pic of my bun, Ocko.  I'm always imagining this is what she's thinking when she gets broccoli with her fresh greens.

I cleaned up my skeleton rig a little and also started working with some muscle groups for a couple poses.
