Last week on BNPR FB group (week of 22 Sept 2013)

We are introducing this new segment we call, “last week on BNPR FB group.” The main aim is to get content without us hunting for them. The secondary aim is to get artists and enthusiasts to talk more broadly on expressive rendering (ER). The third goal is to tell everyone that photo realistic (PR) rendering is just one style, why settle for one style when you can have your own signature styles. Let’s jump into what was posted last week.

1. Bayu Itra posted about a helicopter in the Akari project.

2. Muji Agus Subekti posted about a test render he did as a freestyle study
