I could not have picked a better man myself. Congratulations.
Great to see you made it, Codini! All hail Eris!
Yay, we won!
I can see right through this Mr. codini! Isn't
this all part of the plot to bring about a New
Mojoworld Order? Isn't it also true that you are a member of the Tri-Lateral Commision and the
Bilderbergers? How about Your MJ-12 connection?
Seriously though, while your work is interesting,
I think this is a put-up job. April Fools anyone?
"Yay, WE won?
How many people won?
I thought this was a contest for best artist not best group.
Sincere congratulations to Mr. Codini.
Also sincere congratulations to Legume who has shown true value as a human in making sure he was the first person to offer his hand to any and all competitors worthy.
Is this a bad joke?
It's the greatest joke ever played on the universe ever. Well done Codini!
Congratulations!!! Ah another month dawns.
Congrats, Old Timer! Nice to see you make it entirely on your own merits, without any help from anybody! Who's next? That old crabapple, Musgrave?
Congrats! I enjoy your use of imported objects into Mojo World. Yes, this is the beginning of the Mojo World Order. I would like to see some actual worlds from you tho...
if someone could please enlighten me as to why everyone thinks this is a bad joke, please do so, otherwise, quit whining. As for groups, KromeKatandCurio were nominated (i believe they won too, not sure) once, and that was a two man team doing single images. Collaborations should be welcomed, not shunned. Good stuff Codini
Yes, it's at least bad Antoonio.
congrats! - I am still trying to pick my jaw off the floor!
This is MUCH better than April Fool's, I'm STILL Laughing !!! CONGR-HA-HA-HA-HA-HATS!!!
Congrats Jack....the Beanstalk bites back ! LOL : D
( Looking forward to the interview...as I'm sure is the beanstalk ) See it as the beginning of a long and fruitful journey ...I love the supratentorial antidexterous tilt to your artwork and I've enjoyed them all....may there be many more El Codini ! ....Best Regards : )
April Fools anyone?
After last month why should anyone be shocked....your bio does'nt match your talent though..congrats.
dude,you're even uglier than legume!cool work though.
This Mr Codini Has only been posting for 3 months, has 12 images in his gallery and gets artist of the month. The joke here is renderosity.
By: Stranger Aeons
WOW!! An "Artist of the Month" that's not selling objects in the Market Place. Now that's gotta be a first. Don't sell out comrade, keep it Real ;-)
I was enjoying the interview until you started assaulting other folks belief system. You just did, what you ridiculed others for in the previous paragraph. None the less, I still like your work. Don't lump everyone into one catagory. Congratulations!
The people in the village were real poor, so none of the children had any toys. But this one little boy had gotten an old enema bag and filled it with rocks, and he would go around and whap the other children across the face with it. Later the boy came up and offered to give back the toy. This was too much! I reached out my hand, but then he ran away. I chased him down and took the enema bag. He cried a little, but that's the way of these people.
You think that just because you can sensor what I say here that people wont hear me...? You are wrong and the word is out. I have contacted Curious Labs, Daz and many other companies. Informing them of the way this place is being handled. Congrats to the greedy morons. You have destroyed yourself.
Congrats Mr Codini. I enjoyed perusing your fine gallery. And that has got to be the best interview I've read! Bi-technical. LOL! You crack me up!
My guess would be that people think this is a joke because, if you view Mr Codini's gallery you will only find a small handful of comments and ratings within the entire gallery.
This is puzzeling as one would expect to find a greater turnout within Mr.Codini's gallery if he was of such a high profile as to win this award.
Ooo! Handsome as ever! I loved you in "Quest For Fire". ;-)

Congratulations Sir. As for Renderosity, thank you for making my decision for me. This is no longer a place to be inspired. I am very sad this has come to being a joke instead of an honor. Again sir, this is nothing to do with your work, just renderosity. As of today, my gallery, of limited abilities is gone. Good by.

kaiservr---"your bio does'nt match your talent though.."
Not sure what you mean there, Kaiservr
Sorry Pushin', didn't mean to get you P.O'd
nothing personal...I given a space to vent and did so
I have been here a lot longer than 3 months, way before the "big Take-over" and I had MUCH more stuff up here than I do now. Sorry if you are unhappy, and good luck with contacting software companies.
That was my brother, Ike
By: Mr Codini
By the way I went to your gallery page to see what kind of stuff you do, and, I guess there must be a problem with the server all I got was :
Kara's Gallery Images
Sorry, but no files match your search
I like the interview, and I'd LOVE to know more about how it was like working on the projects you've mentioned, provided you're not bound by an NDA.
On a conspiracy level... Quite a few SubGenii around, I see...I gotta go check them out.
I looked at your gallery, it was interesting to see that the images that had Vicki in the title, had an almost doubled viewrate compared to the others.
On a general note: I don't quite see why people are pissed off about the election; I voted, not for you, but one of the other nominees, and it wasn't enough. It -happens-.
If people are getting so annoyed about the AOM, then VOTE, ferchrissakes, and DEAL if the person you picked didn't win, it's getting fairly tedious seeing all those knickers in a twist over something that is such a passing issue.
Have fun as the AOM :-))
Just remembering some advise my dad gave me years ago,everyones an asshole accept for me and you and i'm not to sure about you.congratz to ya.oh, who's your neighbor?
The man riding the white horse in front of the pack is always the one to be knocked down first. Your artwork is pretty good and I am sure you could do better, enjoy your stay as AOM. Everyone just relax, and dont bash the man, group, or whatever, Everyones 15 seconds of fame comes and so will yours if you work hard. Be happy to be an Artist, (which is an honor in itself) Most people would like to have 5 percent of the talent that most people have here. cya
Congratulations! I hope you have a great month.
shana punim! and nice work too!
"they realize that the joke is what's important."
I voted correctly then..................
I beta tested Mojo and found it very challenging! I would love to see some of your other work also. Keep up the good work and I'll keep my eye on Mojo.
As far as the community goes, I must agree that it has become more aggressive in its criticism and less constructive in its comments. But It will pass, and return, then pass....
I like the picture "What's left", thanks for sharing your work, I enjoyed the interview too.
i liked altered states. good film!
Are you a subgenius?
or a reader of the discordia?
Great interview ;-)
congratulations on AOM, and don't let a few people try to make it any less of an honor than it is.
I can't imagine people griping over someone being picked or not over them or not. I don't think of the displaying of our work here as a contest. I just like seeing other people's work, getting downloads, making downloads, buying, etc.
I've many fine pieces (I think) in my gallery that use a breadth of the programs represented here (Bryce, Poser, Strata, Carrara) and the most I hope for them is that they'll either be enjoyed or inspire as I've been.
If I felt the way some have expressed they do here about Mr. Codini's work or his acknowledgement here, I'd use it to propel my work; not get defeated and blow town and think myself 'limited'.
Remember, "only the mediocre are always at their best" : )
What was it like working on Star Wars? Did you get to meet Alec Guiness? He's my favorite. Are you an extra in any of the shots? What's George Lucas really like?
By: Mr Codini
Alec guiness? isn't he the guy who makes that Beer? (2)It was great except for when we brought in these extra roto guys, they really screwed the whole thing up.
I guess I don't get the "joke" but your interview was fun to read so Congrats..:)
Who served the function of the roto-router Mr
Codini? I do love and respect the films you men-
tioned working on and I have to respect the true
creativity of a fellow "old-school" guy. My regards to Bob when you see him.
I notice a new AOTM up, I go to look at his work and see some really, er, well. Are you hiding his real work or is that it?
What was it like working with the talented George Mather? He's a legend in the special effects business. Did he share any secrets with you?
By: Great Bizarro
ReAlIty is just a misconception of the way things really are.
By: Mr Codini
Well, I started out doing roto and animation.
I guess roto-router was probably Adam Beckett
"My regards to Bob when you see him."
I'll let him know
Mrs. Cleaver.. "Now Beaver... you stop that !!!! "
Beaver Cleaver "But Mom ... I only kissed one frog..? "
Mrs. Cleaver.. "Beaver are you coming out of the closet ?"
Beaver Cleaver.. "No Mom I just kissed a frog"
Makes at least as much sense as crop circles and cattle mutilations. Bob Dobbs? Discordia? Man, I thought I was old. Congrats and keep the tinfoil hat on tight.
do you wonder why all that bad vibes come in??? took me a while myself to remeber that the name mr. codini is known to me - as long as i know renderosity i think... so why did u clean out your gallery? wouldn't it be nice for all the people that don't get the joke (like myself) to get a little insight? anyway... congrats. sure the lot voters for u can't have been that wrong ;)
I don't mean this as an insult, but looking at your work I am reminded of an old album cover by the Booker T & the MGs. Any response to that?
Hmmm.... This is all very interesting. Congrats! Whoever/whatever you are.
good job !! i hope i get to be artist of the month some day ,some year ,some century .well maybe when hell freezes over. that's my best chance
Not only are you a good artist, your funny too.
You even have tiny,hairless attack dogs from Mexico. You are truly living the life we all dream of...I think.
Way to go.
Congratz Mr Codini! I think you are a very talented artist. By looking at these opinions most seem to agree with me, but there are some who are jealous...... Wonder why? By the way, I have seen all of the movies you mentioned and ALTERED STATES is one of my all time fav's! Keep up the excellent work! : )
How does it feel to be the last, "Artist Of The Month", nominated AND selected by your peers ?
By: Doc Mojo
Nice self-portrait, dude. At first I thought it was a picture of me...
-Your "Pal" Mo
Mather would be proud of you, Boy!
