Be Patient..

Jim Sachs has set a standard that seems to please us. It's served us well is his prior efforts. When it pleases him it dazzles me. I for one, do not wish to disturb this process. On the other hand, I can't wait either! Ed

RE: Clams Progress

Jim,

I know you'll get the clams perfected eventually.

I think it's great that you've got the animation created the way you want. I would think that would be one of the hardest parts.

I'm sure you'll get the artwork itself perfected eventually - that is your area of expertise after all.

I would have been more worried about your progress if you'd gotten the art perfect but then stalled on the animation itself.

For now I'm content just starting up the screen saver, sitting back, and watching the fish swim and the corals sway for hours at a time. It's so beautiful!

Regards,

Justin
Sincerely,

S. Justin Gengo

Yeah, you must feel like giving up sometimes! Your dedication is very much appreciated.

I agree with The Old Man! This saver is by far the best anywhere and it takes relentless determination to finish it all, good job Jim!

That inspires some strange visuals... I mean, just exactly where would you apply a "sleeper hold" on a clam, and don't even think about a full, or 1/2 Nelson...




Hang in there Jim! The final product is well worth the wait!

How about we disable the screensaver for EVERYBODY on the PROMISE that after 28 days we ALL get new and improved fish models!

Jav - Things are going a little better today.

Soc - If only my clams looked as realistic as that.

The main problem is that real Maxima clams are almost cartoonish in their colors and patterns. Some have blurry sections which don't even look real in photographs.

Shows some genuine "Yankee Doodle" initiative.. Projects like this have a lot of spin offs.. I can see a strong soup line coming out of something like this.. Boston Clam Chowder.. be prepared to take second place

Well, there you are Jim! - Look what can happen when you start, "... wrestling with the Clams.",

... Better drop the Clam idea completely, - you don't want to incur the wrath of the PC brigade!

Sure is a lot of "clammer" over this subject. Sorry, I just couldn't resist. Don't know what came over me. It's a clam shame!

I'd better redouble my efforts to get these clams done before you all go stir-crazy.
