Joker

Okay so as you might have guessed already, we’re huge Joker fans around here (he’s been our Star Guest too, some really cool pics on there so check it out). So I thought why not take a pic of the sketch I did (that I am VERY proud of, if I may say so myself, as I’m not an artist) of Heath Ledger as the Joker. You may see some resemblance but I don’t promise anything ;).

Heath Ledger Joker Sketch

The lips didn’t turn out quite right, he’s meant to have that signature smirk.

Sooo all you artists out there… any tips? (please? lol I need them!)

And just because I’m curious…

Holiday in Exile…

THE HOLIDAYS ARE OVER!!!

I know this is a bit of a late reaction but i havent had time to do much on this blog. it’s been work work and getting over the depression that comes with the start of term…

now that i’m talking about school and holidays…did you guys know that holiday is YASUMI in Japanese and school holiday is GAKKO NO YASUMI…pretty interesting, aye???? Those are permenantly learned words from my jap class. yes, gasp all you want, i take japanese Poutyit’s not a big deal and not a such horrid subject. there are positives things about the subject…i don’t get why so many people dislike it. sometimes it’s just so annoying that people do that, judge something without knowing the full detail about it. that brings me to one thing i find very irritating…when people go to great lengths to dislike and say something is really bad and they have never actually done, watched or been in that situation before. Prejudiced much?

anyway, the other reason (apart from whining about school starting and judgmental humans) i came on and wrote this post was because i wanted you guys to check this out…

Robots

14 robots last time, 46 robots this time (ILM only)

If you had all the gold ever mined in the history of man, you could build a little more than half of Devastator.

Optimus Prime will be life size on IMAX screens in many forest fight shots.

Devastator’s hand is traveling 390 miles per hour when he punches the pyramid.

The pyramid destruction simulation was 8 times bigger than the old rigid simulation all-time record holder at ILM.

All robot parts laid out end to end would stretch from one side of California to the other, about 180 miles

Devastator’s parts stacked tip to tip would be as tall as 58 empire state buildings.

If all the texture maps on the show were printed on 1 square yard sheets, they would cover 13 football fields.

Disk space

TF1 took 20 Terabytes of disk space. Trans2 took 145 Terabytes. Seven times bigger!

145 terabytes would fill 35,000 DVDs. Stacked one on top of the other without storage cases, they would be 145 feet tall.

Rendering times

If you rendered the entire movie on a modern home PC, you would have had to start the renders 16,000 years ago (when cave paintings like the Hall of Bulls were being made) to finish for this year’s premiere!

A single imax shot in the movie (df250) would have taken almost 3 years to render on a top of the line home PC running nonstop.

IMAX frame render times: As high as 72 hours per frame!

Imax

Optimus Prime will be life size on IMAX screens in many forest fight shots.

Imax frames take about 6 times longer than anamorphic to render.

IMAX frame render times: As high as 72 hours per frame!

ILM screen time

ILM Screen Time is about 51 minutes.

Devastator

Devastator is as tall as a 10 story building.

Devastator has more than 10 times the number of individual parts found in an average car.

Laid out end to end, Devastator’s parts would be almost 14 miles long.

Devastator totals

Number of geom pieces: 52632

The total number of polygons: 11,716,127

The total length of all pieces: 73090 feet

The total length of all pieces: 13.84 miles

A bit of brain sore, that lot of facts. But hope you learned something! And once again, i would like to point out Transformers ROCK!!!

PS: Me and Alisha are gonna update the STORIES AND MORE page. So check it out and comment because these are stories we’ve written and it’s important to us that we get opinions in order to fix them up and improve. Thank you!  Rolllol, i think if i really smiled like that i would break my face and end up with a permenant grin…just like the joker!!! 


Star Guest – The Joker

I know we said that the next star guest is going to be Sweeney Todd…but change of plans, it’s going to be the ruthless and criminal mastermind, Joker.

This is our guest joker who was played by Heath Ledger in the Dark Knight.

Did you guys also know (this is a completely random fact) that in the Batman movies, in the past, the actors who played Batman always died. That’s why there’s so many Batman movies around. Thankfully, the Joker’s nemesis in the Dark Knight did not meet that horrible destiny. Instead, Heath Ledger, the actor who played Joker, died of a drug overdose after the Dark Knight. Now, how creepy is that bit of info…so people, if ever you get a role in the Batman movies, take care, because you never know what’s around the corner…

Creepy facts aside, it is said and finalized that our next guest star is THE JOKER!!! how awesome is that! So if you want to know cool facts, bizzarre events and many other out of the world ideas, come check STAR GUEST in our blog, the Joker will be waiting for you…

                                  Au Revoir…and take care Hurry Upjokx, the Joker won’t get you that scared!
