19 Dazzling CG Artworks and Tutorials on Water - BAD 2010


This year Cgtuts+ is taking part in Blog Action Day to raise awareness about clean water and water conservation, and as such we have two great water-themed posts coming for you over the course of the day! To start us off, Topher Welsh has put together another awesome roundup of images and tutorials.

Access to clean-water is something that's all too easy to take for granted. Chances are that if you wanted a drink right now, you could walk to a room nearby, turn on the tap and get one. It would work first time, be relatively free, and it certainly wouldn't make you ill. And you can do this whenever you want, for whatever purpose. In fact, from the moment the average person wakes up to the moment they fall asleep they use over 465 litres of water. Per day.

There are however, currently one billion people worldwide that have no access to clean water. Just a single $20 donation is enough to supply one person with clean water for 20 years. Please take the time to read some of the details at the following link, maybe add your name to the petition in support of this movement that we've embedded below, and perhaps even consider donating if you can afford it.

Why Water?

Thank you, and now onto the first part of today's content!

    Easy Ways to Contribute to Open-source ProjectsOpen source retina preview
    When the jQuery project first started, I remember how passionate the team was about helping developers use the jQuery JavaScript library. It was a labor of love with all of us putting in countless numbers of hours, day and night, to help grow the project and the developer community. And we did those for free because we just loved doing it. But as the project grew, so did the expectations from the community in terms of features and support. And this is where most open-source efforts fail to scale. Read More…
