Selling It

Just a heads up: Rosetta Stone packages are on sale. Looks like you can save $75 on a Level 1-3 bundle and $125 on a Level 1-5 set. But the sale is only good through Mother's Day (May 9, 2010). So, if you're thinking about purchasing Rosetta Stone this year, do it now.

Again, that's just a PSA if you're looking to buy Rosetta Stone. I'm not trying to sell it, just making it available.

What I've been working on selling all day today is an explosion:

No Explosion

As you can see, while the shot is pretty awesome, it is most assuredly missing an explosion. So I've been working to put one in.

What I have added:
  • Broken windows
  • The explosion proper (complete with debris)
  • Lighting effects to match the explosion

I think it looks pretty good:


Tomorrow I hope to start working on the sound effects. Strong sound sells a shot like nothing else. <contented sigh>

I'm really excited to show you the final product June 1. ...assuming I don't "sell it" too much and my mom decides it's too realistic and therefore too disturbing to share with the world.

That'd be shame.
