The gist to which I was referring was the wanton wielding of sharp tools, which is what really matters

Sure. A good story is a good story. And ditto, I don’t like breakups just for drama. I tend to prefer friendship stories for this reason (ie, bromance). It’s not a will-they-won’t-they, it’s a they-already-are that threads through whatever the current adventure is.

Over my life there's been uncounted influcences. Here's just some I've noticed while drawing in the last few months.

Evan Dahm
If you haven't checked out his work, you should. There's something like 2000 pages of comics up on his site, ready for surrealist binging. I've absorbed quite a bit of his coloring style and brushwork over the last 10 years.

Bruce Timm
Batman: The Animated Series is responsible for me getting into comics at all. Visually, I notice this one drawing female figures... like yep, that there is a Bruce Timm boob that I just drew

Alex Ross
I want to give a shoutout to this painting in particular, because it's stuck with me ever since I saw it in Batman B/W a long time ago. It's not the artstyle, it's the storytelling-- even if you don't know the character, there's so much you can infer from it.

Patrick Gleason
I'm currently obsessed with Gleason's work. It's so clean, and simple, but it captures so much nuance and detail. And emotion, dear lord.

Running through the yard barefoot -> trip over pile of sharp sticks and pinecones -> trip over wheelbarrow -> trip into trampoline rail -> crack rib on said trampoline rail

I can't think of one toxic interaction on the forums here. Although, I do keep thinking of that one time (earlier this year?) there was a thread about support from family/friends and this one guy was all "waaah, my family goes out of their way to persecute my comic and sweep it under the rug every chance they get," to the greater dismay and sympathy of the CF forum. Then one heroic user actually went through the comic in question and discovered a lot of underage sex there. Since that's one of the few illegal subjects on CF Kyo pretty much instantly wiped it. And that was that. I have to wonder if the same user wrote that review...

Anyway, the moral of that story is that the CF forums are one of the most kind and rule-abiding on the internet, imo. Occasionally to a fault. Which as everybody knows is an extremely toxic environment

More peripherally comic related? A research rabbit hole turned study in surgical antiques.

mightguy15: I've got like, 100s of files saved based on the writing alone despite the fact I still don't get anything done.


As a lifelong sufferer of analysis paralysis, you pretty much described any project of mine where I don’t just let go and let it be. It takes a lot of practice but I had to learn to give a little less of a dang and just do it.

For me my ‘method’ for writing helps alleviate the anxiety of Not Knowing since it’s systematic and derivative of itself. It sort of resembles a hybrid of the post it note strategy and the Snowflake Method, you might look into that.

I just listened to an episode of Comic Lab that had a lot of insight on this. It's a fantastic resource, by the way.

heckos:

They're so UGLY. OTL God I hate them. Glitter everywhere, hair going in all directions, bizzarely kind of sexualized? Merida is literally a crime against humanity looking like that. I especially hate that they made the neck of her dress so much lower and took the fairly realistic/period-appropriate construction of her sleeves (see where they attach to the body of the dress) and made it generic. Mulan looks horrific. The elegant simplicity of all their designs, a requirement for characters that (mostly) have to be animated in 2d, is completely lost.


If I can play devil’s advocate for a minute, I honestly don’t see much difference between the old and new designs. Yeah, there’s some slightly modified haircuts and sparklified dresses, but they all hold true to the original characters for me. I wouldn’t even go so far as to call these redesigns exactly. Even the outfits (with minor oversights maybe) are practically identical. They look like a contemporary artist’s interpretation (With directives from the marketing dept) of characters that range from years to decades old. They don’t have to be simple because they’re not for animation. They’re still illustrations for merchandise that need to harmonize with one another and draw eyes all on the same store shelf.

But, that’s just me. I work in graphic design so maybe I am sympathizing with the poor artists having to appease both the powers that be and the nostalgia critics.

Looks like Snap Crackle and Pop have been replaced by the generic knockoff versions of themselves. Sometimes I wonder if the design rights expired on a character design or something because I can’t imagine why you would change to something so similar, except worse quality.

Seconded on Optimus Prime. A lot of things look better streamlined, but not everything.

Interesting. The first Chip looks more like a throwback to me.

Of course, style trends being kind of circular, the 'flat' look has been all the rage lately. See any social media icon from the last couple years.

I agree with Jammy on the others. It's what's in vogue for kid's animation right now. (although the rainbow gradient on that toucan is absolutely HORRENDOUS, why why why). I don't think it's about being lifelike. It's sort of imperfectly dorky and... self-deprecating? It's supposed to be funny, I think, in a way that matches the awkward adolescent humor typical of those shows. That's opposed to the Warner Brothers school of animation, which is slightly less stylistic and centered more around technical excellence as far as physics, anatomy, etc imitating life.

The style of the second link you posted is like today's Ed, Edd, & Eddy or Rocko's Modern Life. Intentionally awkward.

Yeah. Only about a month's worth, though. Counting the one that goes up in about ten minutes, that's four updates. More than that and I procrastinate, plus it's hard enough waiting more than a month for feedback on a page I just finished.

The thought of going wrong on a page not due to post for six months, at which point I'll be six months ahead of that in production, is kind of irrationally nauseating to me.
