Crotchless

During The Son of Fed Square debate, the sober discussion of form following function degenerated into a rather squalid concentration on the computer generated figures that populated the scene, and whether some were naked. David Cohen, Anonymous Perthon and Golden1, I’m particularly looking at you. I think that Vivifyer took responsibility for these nudies wandering the scene at one stage. Myself, I dismissed it as some perverted fantasy, until last Friday I was stopped in my tracks by what looked like genuine computer generated “Map of Tassie” on James Street Northbridge. Intense enlargement of the image by CIA labs in Virginia, makes me now think that it is shadow on a silver jumpsuit, although I haven’t entirely discounted crotchless silver jumpsuit. But what an odd image to sell a building. Apart from crotchless, she’s angry, very angry, as if this was once her building, and she has been cheated out of it. She may also be scratching her arse in a tribute to the all time TWOP classic.

    Crotchlessness is the least of her troubles, is that elephantitis of the ankles that she is hiding under that suit?

    Her shoulder looks dislocated. Maybe she hurt it when a frenzied William Shatner tore the crotch out of her space-suit.

  4. Even more Mysterion from Planet Zog is the other space suited being. I assume that is a space suit repair kit he/she is wearing on their face ?

    Is this the before shot of the refurbishment? Surely they could have gotten more for their money.
    Spent a bit more and they could have bought a better name too.

    Of course the poor girl’s angry, look at that botched bikini wax! It explains why she’s scratching her arse too – ingrown hairs are a nightmare.

    As if she didn’t have enough problems with her elephantiasis, her collapsed rib-cage, her dislocated shoulder, her botched bikini wax and her appalling dress sense she also appears to have a full beard and mustache.

    yeh.. that wasnt me hey. haha thats some nasty looking 3D too. If the budget was so small they could only afford this rubbish 3D work, makes you wonder what their budget is for the building :S

    Oh and just to clear it up, we did not do the animation for that $6 billion thing with fremantle. Thats also rubbish animation to be honest. You would thing with a 6b budget, they could at least spend 5k on animation :P

    cheers thx.

    well I recognise these 3D people. They were included in ArchiCAD 6 way back in the mid 90’s and people still use them today. this is a horrible 3D collection and i wouldnt even use them back then – just like most of the ArhiCAD objects. The low quality is partially due to them not being textured properly but in terms of geometry they were made for use with older computers on large jobs where you may have a lot of 3D people. This was probably done in house by the designer (not much of a design imo) and represents probably 5 minutes work, maybe a few more mins if exported for rendering in artlantis. Normally if you want a good result you would want to export the basic model and add better looking people/plants in something like 3Dsmax or else just photoshop some people on like someone else suggested. It actually looks like the work of a designer i know…
