I've been experimenting with some of these LEDs, and have just made a discovery that merits bumping this thread. Having read this thread and been intrigued, I purchased a bunch of these yellow 10mm diffused LEDs and have been running them on CR2032 batteries with great effect. While they do run for ...

It is easily in my top 5 favourite patterns (might be my fav). Truly terrifying to look upon. A great translation of a great poster. I remember seeing the VHS box art in video stores as a kid and being spooked.

I love the more themed mascots. Spirit was so different than anything we'd seen. There's nothing better than seeing an artist take risks.

The use of purple and little chin whiskers are particularly wonderful touches.

It's not as easy as it looks. I've created some, but have been doing it by hand. I hear that adobe Photoshop and adobe illustrator work very well. But they are a tad on the expensive side. Good luck!! It's definitely not as easy as it looks. I used to invert an image in Photoshop, up the contrast (...

It be can be pretty tough to find an ample variety of high quality reference photos for supporting actors from movies that came out pre-internet. This was even an issue with Winston from Ghostbusters. I had the same issue with Winston; almost no reference material. I had to pop the blu-ray in and t...

That joker is stunning. I love the gamble they took with the New 52 redesign. Very intense/extreme; fits the character perfectly.
