Welcome to Homage Corner, where I pay homage to other artists that truly inspire me.

Some use software that I use, others might not. Sometimes it's just the technique or style that drives me to be inspired by them.

Most of the time I'm talking about and using Carrara software, and just about any kind of inspiration works for me when it come to Carrara - so it's easy to be inspired by just about anyone's work.

Let's take a look at a few who have really stood out over the years:

Markus has shown some of his work on the older Carrara forum back when I was just getting into all of this and I always thought it was So Cool how he intervened live footage with miniature models and Carrara graphic!

It blew my mind, in fact!

He used to have a YouTube channel full of his Carrara experiments which has since disappeared, much to my dismay. He had all kinds of cool things going on in there!

Here's a cool feature that he did in 2014 regarding CG in general to make your imagination possible on the screen.

His YouTube Channel isn't really about this stuff much anymore, which is a bit of a bummer.

But he still has these fun things for us to watch and enjoy - and to be inspired by!

Thinking Outside the Box!

This one shows off some of how his imagination can become reality - at least for our eyes and minds!

So what about this "Atomic City" he keeps talking about?

It's a real tragedy, in my opinion, that he no longer shares the full pilot episode that used to be available.

Below are a couple of Featurettes made about the pitch of the show:

...and here are the other two he mentions, Pirettes and Iceberg

Yowza! The Scorpions playing with an orchestra at the ending of the Iceberg pitch inspires me even more!!!

I'm pretty certain that the awesome ship in Pirettes is none other than the incredible HMS Victory, by Dreamscape Creations - now also a Daz Originals feature.

This model (Poser CR2) is very cool and is easy to work with in Carrara - and looks great with Carrara's Ocean Primitive, a water plane with auto-animated wave parameters, which is what I use in the Carrara EnvironKits for the animated water and lava.

Far-fetched, fun and artistic, I love his vision and would have loved to watch the shows.

Great job Markus, and thanks for the inspiration!

I sure do wish we still had your other great videos to watch!

A good friend of mine, and we never know what she's going to make next!

With over 31,000 subscribers, her channel is packed with fun - Silly, exotic, experimental and often with great music and oscure voice-overs!

We also never know which software she'll be using. She dabbles in Everything and is a never-ending source of technical support for our little circle of friends and the community at large when asked.

There's so much to look at, I'm only putting up these two for you to check out here. Check out her channel and have fun!!!

Joe does some impressive experiment work. I haven't seen him around Carrara circles lately, but that doesn't matter because I see that he's still doing his awesome stuff!

Here are a couple of his Mimic Pro for Carrara (Lip Sync) tests

What happens when your dad is a professional visual effects artist?

This is So Cool!!!

Where Art, Music and geniusly clever programming skills meet the screen!

I first found this stuff after discovering Frederic Rible's PyCarrara (Python for Carrara), where he was experimenting with feeding midi notes into Carrara's animation features via Python programming language. Very cool stuff.

Animusic.com is a pretty cool site too. Not sure whatever became of their 3rd DVD

Well, I've run out of time.

To be continued with much more - There's so much to show!
