With all these great pictures of turkeys, cleanly backdropped against overexposed streets and yards of white white snow, it seemed a fabulous opportunity to enjoy some photo trickery. I thought I could put some of my turkeys into my video games, or maybe a few other environments, and these pictures would come out great.
I tried it.
Then I tried it some more.
It didn't work out too well.
But if I am honest the difference between my artistic triumphs here, and my artistic failures, ends up shockingly thin. Think of a wall, made of stone, in a country field. Standing at the wall I divide my successes and failures to each side of the wall. It is a huge difference! It is very important to me and to clerkmanifesto, and I spend a lot of time at the wall.
But there are no people around. The few sheep dining locally aren't particularly interested.
A plane passes over at 40,000 feet. Someone looks out the window.
"Is that a wall down there?" They wonder.
A super intelligent alien in a distant galaxy looks into the sky with their 11 eyes.
"Przapt vonk(*&rer xxxx

Which explains why I am showing you these pictures.
They almost maybe sorta worked out but didn't quite.
