Hi everyone,
Christopher Reeve, passed away on Monday. I think it would be nice not to poke fun, many people made jokes about him during his life because of his condition after he fell from the horse. I think to honor him we should all try to do something nice, and show him some respect, especially since his death was so recent.

Edit: Sorry, I think saying this was redundant since everyone in the CGsketch are such wonderful people that respecting such a great man comes natural,
Whether you think you can or you can't, you probably right.

Great tribute Supervlieg!

wow, that is beautiful Supervlieg!

... I decided to change my avatar, I really didnt like having the dude from pirates of the caribean for so long, and it seems we do more and more avatar themes lately, so I wanted something new and fun, since Zelda is my favorite video game, and the reason I got into CG I thought it be fitting. (I kept the cig and the sunglasses).
Hopefully I will just stick to this one, and not change my mind again... avatars are such a silly thing, but for some reason i think about it too much..

I'm sad that he passed away. He was an example to a lot of people. He never gave up hope and acctually managed to overcome a little of his handicap.


I'll drink one in his memory...

I know the icons aren't really that appropriate but it was the closest to what I meant...

Here's mine. I wanted to make to make this have an old school Superman feeling to it. No reference. Stylized version of Christopher Reeves as Superman.

2 hrs I think?

Oh Supervlieg and Digital_Bobert, your posts are so beautiful and so perfect! It is bringing a lump to my throat. I didn't know Mr. Reeve personally, but an old flame of mine went to school at Juliard with him and Robin Williams - so I feel a little more connected to him than to most movie stars. His handicap never stopped him, he was a tireless advocate of spinal cord injury research and rehabilitation. Its sad that he is gone, he will always be the truest image of "Superman" for me and millions of other people.

The 2 of you did such an amazing job, I'm not even going to try. Kudos!
