CGS Newsletter - 27 March 2008

Full version here...

For those who celebrate Easter, I hope you had a joyous one! If you had your fill of chocolate eggs, I suggest a hearty session on Guitar Hero to burn excess calories.

It’s not only about chocolates here at CGS HQ, we are also very fond of monsters. A fine example of 'boogeymanism' can be found in a recent CGChoice Award winnerQueen of Monsters by Epic Games’ Jordan Walker. The artist was kind enough to give us a step-by-step tutorial on his monster making method.

The aliens are coming!
Take a look at the alien invasion happening over at CGChallenge XXII Uplift Universe: Alien Relations.There are already some outstanding entries, like dharmaestudio and BaronImpossible’s to name just two. This worldwide digital art/video competition challenges entrants to not only create awesome aliens but also show them interacting with humans. Join now to get amongst the $100,000 plus prizes!
