Digital Dreams by Ray Caesar

Ray Caesar  is a visual, surreal artist and digital painter residing in Toronto, Canada. He was born in London, England in 1958, emigrated to Toronto in 1967. Artist creates his dream-like images with a 3D modeling software.

Caesar  works  in  Maya,  using  it  to  create  his  figures  as  well  as  the  virtual  realms  in  which  they  exist.  Through  the  program,  he  builds  digital  models  with  invisible  skeletons  and  anatomical  joints  that  can  be  bent  and  manipulated  to  assume  any  pose.  He  wraps  the  models  in  rich  textures,  adding  hair,  skin,  eyelashes  and  fingernails.  Then  places  them  in  digitally  lit,  impeccably  detailed  3D  environments  built  with  architectural  layers,  windows,  wallpapers,  curtains  and  furnishings.  

Caesar’s  meticulous  process  incorporates  elements  of  drawing,  painting,  collage  and  sculpture,  working  countless  hours  to  achieve  every  remarkably  intricate  tableau.  Further  emphasizing  his  sculptural  technique,  Caesar  compares  his  process  of  2D  printmaking  with  imagery  created  in  3D  as  being  similar  to  the  practice  of  capturing  stills  from  video  and  film. via

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
