Maya: Restore busy cursor

A small annoying thing with maya, especially with arnold renderer is that if you start a render and cancel, the cursor won't come back to its normal stage from the busy mode. It keep showing the spinning wheel or what ever the display settings are set to.

It is hard to work with that cursor. This two lines of code should fix that issue.

import PySide
PySide.QtGui.QApplication.restoreOverrideCursor()

study # 16



Reference

My last attempt at painting a human is horrible. Faces are my weakness. Need to do more of those.

study # 15




Here is the one image which I thought I will never be able to finish but somehow managed to.
Though I haven't achieved 100 percent likeness, I'm happy that I was able to finish it off in a decent shape. While starting I dreaded with the no of elements and the different types of surfaces in the image but soon it became by favorite study. I had lot of fun painting this and learned a ton.


And here is the original image.
I found it on pinterest and forgot to keep the source link. 
Google image search didn't help to trace the source. 
Thanks to the anonymous photographer.

Completely done in mypaint, except for the bar codes, which are photo bashed in krita.
Here is the gif of the process for fun.


Any c&c is always welcome.

I have been exploring imagemagick and its python module for some implementation at work.
Just for fun created a gif of the process using it.

study # 12




Did this over the weekend, an hour here and half an hour there but spent a bit more time than usual. The front wood texture didn't came out well at all. Lot to improve on this one... but moving on to the next...

Done in mypaint on centos 7 and here is the original image.
