IF: Launch

Well seeing his weeks subject I automatically thought of a space rocket, but rather than just do some generic one I thought I'd delve into my TV viewing past. I was always a big fan of the Gerry Anderson "Supermarionation" series and remember watching them all the time as a kid. There still fun now actually but the strings become more noticeable as you get older :)

Thunderbirds which ran from (1964–1966) was one of the most famous. My favorite was always Thunderbird 3 for some reason, It really seemed like a good retro rocket design so here's my take on it.

IF: Shadows

I've always been a fan of Chiaroscuro and dramatic light and shade. I've been experimenting with the effect in some images and recently did this which I thought would fit this weeks topic.

This is a Deltadromeus. yes its back to the dinosaurs for this one. seemed like as good a subject as any to practice the dramatic light on :) It was a large theropod dinosaur from Northern Africa late Cretaceous about 95 million years ago. It had long,slender hind limbs for its size, suggesting that it was a swift runner.
