The Overlooked Art (and Drama) of Courtroom Sketching

quote [ As 2021 came to a close, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell was convicted on charges of sex-trafficking in connection with her former partner and accomplice, Jeffrey Epstein. However, it wasn?t her misconduct or the salacious details of her lifestyle that went viral, but rather a courtroom sketch ? of Maxwell sketching the sketch artist back. ]

Reconsidering Rotoscoped Animation for its Second Century

quote [ I was reading a book at a coffee shop once, years ago ? maybe an old edition of John Krasner?s Motion Graphic Design and Fine Art Animation? ? that compared attempting hand-rotoscoping a feature film to serving a prison sentence. Having now served seven years at just that (ten if you count the short films), doing hard time shackled to a Wacom tablet, I think that is a pretty fair assessment of the kind of man-hours involved ]

Good article discussing the second wave of rotoscoping for the late 70s fantasy wave (pictured above) to current instances.

Encarta does not run at all, but many other interactive 90s applications seem to do pretty well. Now if they found another way to emulate Dogz?
