[english translation further down]

Por fín puedes tener ese juguete con el que siempre has soñado: las figuras de resina de Pepi y Victoriano, los protagonistas de Cortesía y Neumáticos.



Eso sí, para que se empiecen a fabricar, y puedas disfrutar de la compañía de estos simpáticos ancianitos, es necesario que reciban suficientes votos en patchtogether.com. Sólo tienes que darte de alta en la página, proceso rápido e indoloro, y a continuación votarlos con un buen 5/5:
Y a continuación, el cortometraje, para quienes no lo conozcan aún:

ENGLISH:

You can finally have that toy which you have always dreamed of: the resin sculptures of Pepi and Victoriano, the main characters from my short-film Politeness & Tires.

To begin making them, and to enjoy the company of these two funny characters, they have to get enough votes at patchtogether.com. All you have to do is sign in to have your account at patchtogether.com, which is very fast and painless, and after that vote my two designs with a 5/5:
And of course, feel free to tell all your friends. The more votes, the better.

If you have not seen the short-film yet, you can watch it here:

FumeFX test - burning trees

Another FumeFX test. This time Youtube's extreme compression is seriously screwing it up. You can't even see the floating embers particles I put in there, and you can barely see the smoke.

more FumeFX tests

A petición del amigo Xavier, y sólo porque es él, cuelgo algunos videos más de pruebas que he estado haciendo con FumeFX (espero tus/vuestros comentarios):

(EDIT: Youtube no codificaba bien el primer video de la explosión nuclear, así que lo quito.)
