SMC 52: Praxinoscope

What the hell is a Praxinoscope? well its probably the nearest thing to a television in Victorian times! there is a few different styles and you will get brownie points if you can successfully animate it (BUT NOT REQUIRED AND JUST VIRTUAL EXTRA POINTS :p)

As you can see your great work will count! How could we block beautiful works just because they don't use a specific software? :mrgreen:

Yeah, Carrara 7 Pro and modeled in Hexagon, some painting in 3D - although didn't take much care with it.

Had the blurry eye today, so not sure what I messed up. heh
