Youve probably seen Ellen Porteus artworks around theyre the cute, clean drawings melting your eyes with pastel colour schemes delicious enough to eat from a waffle cone. We spoke to the Melbourne-based artist about how she tackles creative blocks, time management and the practical side of bringing her ideas to life. Oh, and we also made a pretty spiffy video with Ellen where we spent a day with her.


Hi Ellen! Tell us a bit about yourself and the art you make. I am an illustrator, animator, and I also do installation work, so I kind of just put myself under the umbrella of artist. Id describe my style as really bold vector work thats sort of cartoony in nature, really fun and tongue-in-cheek.

What does a typical day look like for you? Im not a morning person, so I wake up pretty late and get myself to some kind of exercise class like samba, barre, yoga or dance anything thats really difficult and high-energy to wake me up. Then Ill come back home, grab a coffee and play with my dog, before settling into work. Every night before I go to bed, I list what I need to do the next day, so as soon as I get to my desk I know what Im doing. After answering any urgent emails, Ill get stuck into work, which could be sketching concepts for a client or working on the computer creating natural illustration.

Im also doing more on-site mural and installation work. I work from home, so I always have a home-cooked lunch, then might move around the house with my laptop to mix it up a little bit, or sometimes Ill visit my partner who has his own plant shop, and work from there. Then Ill come home in the afternoon to finish off anything. I always set aside time at night to have a proper dinner away from the desk, and relax by going for a walk, jumping in the pool or going to the pub. I dont like having the same day twice, because I can get quite bored and restless!

Whats your creative process when it comes to idea creation? I like coming up with concepts that are clever and make sense, so I find writing them down with words helps, then Ill move into really rough sketches on paper. Then Ill take a quick snap and move into computer work, because I find its the quickest way for me to visualise an idea. I sketch out the ideas on the computer, send them to the client, find out which one they want to move forward with, then Ill do a proper version on Illustrator. I use a drawing tablet to work up the final piece, introducing colour (choosing colour palettes is one of my favourite parts!) and adding in detail. With animation theres another whole step, which is very technical and time-consuming! 

Do you have any tips or tricks to spark creativity? I find just getting in and drawing stuff is the easiest way, even if its bad or not related to the problem Im trying to solve. If Im really stuck, I take as many showers as I need to (another benefit of working from home!). It just refreshes you and feels like starting over. Everyone knows that clich of coming up with ideas in the shower, but its 100 per cent definitely a thing!

Youve recently been working on the MSI PS63 Modern laptop. How did you find it? Good! Animation is quite RAM-heavy and can slow down your computer, but this was super-fast, so I could see the animation come together in real time, without any delays. The graphics were super-clear. Its also got a good battery and its really light, so its easy to carry around and because I move around a bit throughout the day, thats been good.

What programs do you use to create your work? Illustrator is the main one. For anything drawing-related, I use a tablet to draw directly onto the computer, then After Effects to animate work.

Do you have any tips or tricks for the programs you use? Becoming familiar with the technical side of things, but then adapting that however you want to work for you specifically. There are lots of tutorials out there and people will tell you the right way to do something, but the more comfortable you are doing it your own way, the more natural the outcome is.

Do you have a different approach for hand-painted works and pieces created on a laptop? Yeah, pretty much. Instead of working up the final in Illustrator, Ill just do a rough on the computer, then translate that to a mural by painting it. Im doing a big laser-cutting project at the moment where Im laser-cutting wood, so I designed them all on the computer then painted them by hand. Its always a mix of using technology and traditional techniques, just because Im so comfortable with using a computer.

Have you always loved computer-based design? It sort of evolved. I studied graphic design and in that degree I got to try a lot of different things like watercolour and other traditional forms of art-making. Nothing felt right until I started drawing on the computer. I just found it the most natural way for me to create the things I wanted to make these super-vibrant repeating patterns. I dont have a natural, tactile look to my work; its very clean and very bold, and I found that as soon as I started drawing on a computer I was like, Oh, this totally makes sense and this is what Im trying to do finally! Its the right medium for me, and it took a lot of experiencing other mediums to find that out.

How did you build up such an amazing bunch of clients? Ive been doing this for five years now. I was slogging it out for a year without getting any work really, just basically working full-time on my own personal work. So, I think the way I built up the big clients was by working really hard at the start to establish my style as my own very unique thing. Then clients wanted that unique thing.

We chatted to Ellen in collaboration with MSI, who launched the new PS63 Modern laptop earlier this year. Its super-lightweight, has 16-hours of battery charge and can be optimised for all sorts of creative work via the MSI Creator Centre. Check it out here, and take a closer look at Ellens bright illustrations on her website and Instagram.

Unboxing & Reviews / The MSI GT76 is Power on Full Throttle
« on: July 24, 2019, 02:18:34 PM »

MSI, a leader in top-tier gaming hardware,  took to Computex 2019 in Taipei, Taiwan to announce their newest cutting-edge innovations geared towards the most elite of gamers. Their gaming flagship, the ultra-powerful GT76 Titan is easily their crowning glory, sporting a sleek and stylish design on the outside and a phenomenal game-changing performance under the hood. Heres everything about the winner of Computex 2019s Best Choice Golden Award, the MSI GT76 Titan.


MSIs top-tier  model, the GT76 Titan prides itself in pushing the boundaries on what a gaming laptop can be, offering powerful desktop-level performance with a relatively more compact and mobile frame. It satisfies even the most elite of gamers and gaming enthusiasts elevating performance to a higher standard by rocking an  Intel Core i9-9900K desktop processor, overclocked to 5.0GHz across all 8 cores, and  a top-of-the-line RTX 2080 GPU.


With all that power roaring under the hood, the GT76 Titan will need a beastly amount of cooling to make sure everything runs buttery smooth. Luckily the MSI-exclusive Cooler Boost Titan cooling system is more than up to the task. Its remarkable 4-fan and 11-pipe cooling design made from ubersmooth Computer Numerical Control (CNC ) polished Copper is able to generate 2.25 times the airflow and makes sure the GT76 Titan runs and keeps running at an all-out pace.


In order to enhance its visual experience and earn some style points along the way, the GT76 applies a 17.3-inch 4K IPS-level thin bezel display. The thin bezel design also significantly reduces the dimension of the 17 chassis giving  you a bigger and more immersive picture of the battlefield. The flagship also features the upgraded wired-and-wireless networking, with Killer DoubleShot Pro now supporting 2.5Gbps LAN and Wi-Fi 6!


On the outside, apart from its performance, the beastly GT76 Titan also channels inspiration from exotic sports car with its sleek and stylish aesthetics. This mean machine sports a quality aluminum chassis and carbon fiber-themed ventilation grilles accentuating its grace and power. While RGB lighting is usually found on just keyboards, the GT76 breaks the stereotype with Mystic Light not only on the keyboard but also with an underglow to provide the unprecedented user experience. The GT76 Titan also won the highest honor of Computex Best Choice Golden Award at the show proving that it is a huge force in the world of gaming notebooks and its ready to take the world by storm!

The GT76 Titan along with GS65 Stealth and P65 Creator will be available for Pre-Order in the Philippines starting June 1st, 2019 at MSI Concept Stores and select MSI Authorized Re-sellers.

Below are the pricing and available configurations for Philippine consumers:


MSI Philippines will be announcing other new available models and their pricing very soon! In addition, there will be a Price Drop promotion on select MSI gaming laptops this June-July 2019.

On 4/3, Intel launched their latest 8th Gen Core i7 processors platform, the Core i7 8750H CPU. The improvement of the Core i7 8750H is not only a new generation, but also very significant improve as first 6Cores/12Threads architecture on mobile CPU platform. This might be a small step from Intel, but a big leap for much more powerful gaming notebooks!
 
The GP63/GP73 got similar design as previous GE63/GE73
Our latest GP63 and GP73 Leopard 8RE comes with brand new design, evolved from GP62 and GP72, the GP63 designed with 7 heatpipes and 2 powerful fans, that makes the cooling system more powerful to handle 8th Gen Core i7 8750H easier to boost at higher performance. Compared to other notebooks at same level, this is the best cooking design youve ever got than before.

7 heatpipes and dual fans of Cooler Boost 5 is really powerful!

 
Inherit the ID shapes and speakers design from GP63/GE73, the speakers also become Giant Speakers, same chamber size, but only comes with 2 speakers, free of woofers. Maybe the base sound effect was a bit weaker than GE series, but the Giant Speakers still runs more powerful to over 102dBA, its higher than previous GP62/GP72 series which was around 96dBA level, that makes the new GP63 and GP73 with louder sound volume and better sound detail for gamer.
 
Listen to a notebook of the sound quality, the volume is important but not the only condition, the sound detail also as good as GE63, just a small difference on the low frequency sound, because this model did not have woofer.
 
The Giant Speaker chamber design is really big, same as the speakers!

 
CPU performance boost up over 42% than old 7700HQ notebooks
When I got the latest GP63 Leopard 8RE gaming notebook, I really wish to sell my old GS73 to buy this new model!! The shape of GP63 Leopard 8RE looks fantastic. This model comes with 8th Gen Core i7 8750H CPU and GTX 1060 graphics, my comparison is previous GP62 with Core i7 7700HQ and GTX 1060 graphics from others. I tested the CineBench R15 as a good start, the CPU multi-core score is 1062cb, compared to previous i7 7700HQ is 744cb, the new i7 8750H is 42.7% faster than 7700HQ.
Check on the OpenGL score from CineBench R15, 8th Gen Core i7 8750H got 102.32fps, its also 11% faster than Core i7 7700HQ at 94.54fps. So even with same GTX 1070 graphics, the professional OpenGL test still could improve more than 8.2%!
 
The Core i7 8750H got 1062cb at Mulci-CPU score, and OpenGL test is 102.32fps

 
The Core i7 7700HQ got 744cb score at CineBench R15 test, and OpenGL test is 94.54fps.

 
Core i7 8750H of Video Transcoding test got 28.5% faster
The FHD/4K video transcoding and editing works are getting more popular in recent years, so I also looking forward to see what Core i7 8750H could improve on this part. I used X264 FHD Benchmark tool to test the performance gap between GP63 of Core i7 8750H and 7700HQ.
Lets take a look on the result; the six Cores of Core i7 8750H on this Full HD video transcoding benchmark comes out 32.4fps, which presents much faster than Core i7 7700HQ test result of 25.2fps. 8750H got more than 28.5% faster on the video transcoding benchmark than 7700HQ, we could see that 8th Gen. Core i7 platform did have great improvement on the FHD/4K video transcoding performance and could reduce the time for video editing.

Intel Core i7 8750H got 32.4fps at X264 FHD Benchmark test; its28.5% faster than i7 7700HQ CPU at 25.2fps

 
The 3D Mark 11 Performance Boost was higher than expect
With same GeForce GTX106 graphics, just the Core i7 CPU difference, users will still get big performance gap on the 3D Mark 11 benchmarks, the old i7 7700HQ got P12600 score in average, but on the latest GP63 with SPORT mode, we got P14173 score which is 12% faster, if you runs TURBO mode with GPU OC 200MHz, the score could reach P14854, that makes the gaming performance might be able to reach 17.8% faster, its great for a new gaming notebook improvement!
 
GP63 default on SPORT mode of 3D Mark 11 P14173, 12% faster.


GP63 boost on TURBO mode with GPU OC got 3D Mark 11 P148543, 17.8% faster.

 
Conclusion on the GP63 design and performance improvement
The GP63 and GP73 got better cooling system and sound quality compared to GP62 and GP72, also looks fancier on the outlook edge and shapes. With these 3 simple but useful benchmark tests out of 4 results, we could realized that the latest Intel 8th Gen Core i7 platform are capable to improve most of the CPU demanded programs, the maxima performance boot could over 42% depends on the multi-cores usage optimized status. Besides of these tests, use the Core i7 8750H platform to play games and live streaming, the fps will drop much less than Core i7 7700HQ platform because of 6C/12T architecture is more efficient on multi-task works than 4C/8T CPUs. 

Lets get online to buy a new GP63 or GP73 series gaming notebooks from the market, this time they got better design, more features and greater CPU performance improvement than any of the previous 2 generations of Intel mobile platform!!

Battlefield 5 RTX ray tracing is here at last, and if youve got the right hardware, you can check out the future of video game lighting for yourself. However, getting DXR to work in Battlefield 5 isnt as simple as downloading the latest game patch and flipping the switch in settings. Below, well go over the process of what you have to do to activate raytracing in BF5, and what hardware is compatible with DXR.

What Video Cards Can Use DXR in Battlefield 5?
Before you do anything, youll want to make sure you have a raytracing-capable GPU. Right now, only the Nvidia RTX line of cards can use ray tracing in BF5, so your selection is pretty limited. The following video cards allow you to activate RTX:


Any of those three models will work with ray tracing in Battlefield 5.
How to Unlock DXR Ray Tracing in Battlefield 5
There are three things you need to do to unlock the DXR option in BF5:

HOW TO UPDATE BATTLEFIELD 5 FOR RTX

This is easy. Just log onto Origin, and youll see that BF5 has a pending update. Chances are itll start downloading automatically. If so, you just have to wait until its done and installed.
When youve updated, you should see V.22946 in the bottom right corner in the options menu.

HOW TO UPDATE TO WINDOWS 10 VERSION 1809

If your Windows installation hasnt already auto-updated to version 1809, youll need to do it manually. To do this, open your start menu, then go to Settings. In the settings menu, the last option should be Updates and Security. Select this, and you should see an update available. Select to install it, and after a restart, youll be on version 1809
If theres not an update available, check which version of Windows youre on. You can do this by going to the search bar in Windows and type winver and hit enter. A small box will pop up and show details for your Windows version. If you see, Version 1809 (OS Build 17763.134) then youre good to go.


HOW TO UPDATE NVIDIA DRIVERS TO VERSION 416.94

This is as easy as opening Nvidia Experience and checking for updates. Once you do that the new driver should pop up and you can download and install it. This update required a restart for me, but your results may vary.

How to Turn on DXR Ray Tracing in Battlefield 5


Once youve met the above prerequisites, you can check out ray tracing in Battlefield 5. Launch the game and then go to the video options menu. Youll need to go to the advanced tab, and if youve completed all the updates, you should see DXR Enabled under the DirectX 12 toggle.
To turn on ray tracing, youll need to toggle both the DirectX 12 and DXR Enabled switches. Both these have to be on for raytracing to work. One you flip these youll have to restart the game for the new settings to take effect. When you relaunch, youll find some new options in advanced video settings, and youll be able to play Battlefield 5 with ray tracing
