Because not only are white sharks absolute bad asses who generally have no interest in killing humans, but they're actively helping us battle one of the most terrible diseases on the planet. We're welcome!
I recently put together a small journal entry which explains some key lighting principles, demonstrated as predictably as ever with Unreal Engine 4.

Fudge you, pay me!: “Yeah the work’s good, but I can’t/don’t plan on using it, so I can’t pay for it”20 November, 2018
That's right - because my entitlement to the remuneration agreed for my investment of skill and time, is subject entirely to your whims.
Day Three, Krupskaya 2018 Siberia Tour: From Red Square to an island forest in Nizhny Novgorod8 November, 2018
As we venture toward Nizhny Novgorod, little do we know that today’s events are going to involve getting lost in another forest and a bare penis. Yay.
Tonight we play in a forest in Moscow and the only directions we have are – when you find this tree, turn left. I admire Russia’s simplicity, I must say.
Our kids are getting big!30 October, 2018
