    If you intend to draw or paint outside on a particularly sunny day, be sure to wear sunscreen or at least rotate yourself.

    Otherwise you look ri-goddamn-diculous.

    Oh now, come on. You read my previous post here, no? What do you think?



    I`d say, subtle hints were given. It was a brief moment of sanity that actually got me making this rule. Thank God I have those every now and then... o_________________o

    I wouldn't say never to lens flares as an effect. The filter is still a good thing to never do. But even then. If you know how to use it then you can get away with it.

    So...um, I am having a tough time affording to pay of the amount due for this art school, and each day, something gets in the way of me getting approved for a loan.
    The excitement of going to an art school becomes a slow progress of descending into depression as the deadline draw ever so closer each day. I feel like its not worth it anymore now.

    so...if I can't pay off the amount due, how hard is it to be a self-taught animator?

    I've always been one of those people who has a few close friends over a dozen or so regular friends you might hang out with rarely. But reaching the point where my friends are moving and it's frankly getting depressing. Problems galore in life then one of my friends just moved across the globe to Hawaii (which I'm happy as hell for him) but now even communication with phone is going to be a pain since I'm east coast and it's like a 6-7 hour time difference.


    Then on top of that I busted my foot on a waterslide a few days before he left and it's still swollen a bit. Never wear glasses to a waterpark. Riding down the waterslide then realize "Oh shit, at the bottom my glasses will get flung off and maybe break". Grab the glasses but then have only one hand which throws off the balance and BAM.

    Well this is amusing.

    Between 2003 and 2008, 108 people died from cattle-induced injuries across the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s 27 times the whopping four people killed in shark attacks in the United States during the same time period, according to the International Shark Attack File. Nearly all those cow-related fatalities were caused by blunt force trauma to the head or chest; a third of the victims were working in enclosed spaces with cattle.
    What's more, with cows, it's personal. Sharks just think you're a delicious seal and mistakenly take a taste. But here's some detail from the CDC report on bovine murder:

    In about 3/4 of the cases “the animal was deemed to have purposefully struck the victim.”

    One of the murderous bulls had been hand-raised and bottle-fed by the victim and his family.
    If you don't believe it, check out this story of a vengeful bull in India:

    The bull apparently kept a watch on frail Bhoop Narayan Prajapati, 65, and attacked him when he was having his morning tea, a day after he had thrown hot water on it for sitting in front of his hut. Prajapati ran inside his thatched hut to escape, but the bull followed him, pushed him to the ground twice and gored him.

    Apparently there was a long history between this man and this bull: Six months earlier, he hit the animal with a stick and it retaliated, landing him in the hospital for a month.

    And not only did the animal plot its revenge for months, it made sure its attack had been successful, and after he died, it returned to gloat:

    The bull followed the man when he was being taken to a hospital and later appeared at the crematorium during his funeral.
    DAMN, and that was in India! Imagine what a cow in any other country would do if it could discover the reason it was raised on a farm?

    Yeah yeah, they should make a movie out of it. Like the farmers test out a new steroid that accidentally gives the cows sentience, and they start a revolt.

    The current idea seems to be that what we call "Space" is actually a "thing" in and of itself that contains a lotta stuff.

    Perhaps the "area" before the Big Bang was "Really Empty Space."

    Then I guess you get into the questions of how big is Really Empty Space, where did it come from, is there anything on the outside of it, and where did the Banging stuff come from?

    Well, yeah. There's the multiverse theory, and I think someone explained it as if the entirety of it all is like a big cheese, and all the infinite number of universes are holes in the cheese. And the cheese between those holes is constantly expanding...

    What's interesting though is that some scientists calculated that all the matter and dark matter (I think) of the universe "adds up" as +-0. Which proves that the universe could have come out of absolutely nothing.

    Tip of the day
    NEVER put regular dish washing soap in the automatic dishwasher. I have spent the last hour cleaning up bubbles off my kitchen floor. Its like the blob is coming out of my F'ing dishwasher. It was a two foot carpet of bubbles where tile should be!
    To make things worse the woman has been away for the weekend and she just called to say she will be home in two hours. Its like I'm trapped in a sad mundane version of the movie Risky Business without any good looking people and no one got laid.

    I always imagined that you were some sort of crazy survivalist living far away from people in the woods and eating caterpillars when you weren't painting. And this pretty much confirms my theory.

    I'm glad I read that. Because otherwise it'd have been only a matter of time before I did it myself.

    I can see it now. I run out of those cube thingies and just put in dish soap because it's "close enough" and don't feel like driving to the store.

    Uhh...I'm halfway through that show (finally rewatching it after nearly 10 years) and I REALLY disagree with that. If you meant Cowboy Bebop, then sure.

    Well no anime is at the level of Cowboy Bebop duh.
    But to each their own. It was back in the time where Sunrise was an amazing animation company.
    Their more recent stuff. Meh.

    Talking about anime, the third movie of Evangelion: You can (not) redo, is coming this year.
    Also, i“m extremely excited about the 3 new berserk movies. (Even with that shitty cell-shading animation)

    I was hoping for a continuation to the series since the original was only one arc and a ridiculously small portion of the story. Then I saw there was a 2nd series planned, then I saw screenshots, then I saw it was movies, then I saw it was CG and my face was like this

    I just watched the series and don't really want to watch films... Despite two last eps could be easily merged into one, I liked ending. It would be nice to know more but I can enjoy concepts anyway, overall it's how author wanted it to be - something more than another adventure manga/anime. His ideas were engaging but at the end he shows that what was really important, not an intrigue but his message. It was nothing very crucial at all, but uplifting and actually making you think... That is not typical for anime.

    I hated the first Evangelion movie. REALLY hated it.

    The completely nonsensical ending of the original series, where the budget issues were clearly in place, was a hilarious ending, if you ask me. I wish that was the real ending. That isn't to say that the movie WASN'T nonsensical, but it was a different KIND.

    I might bother with the other ones one of these days. Evangelion was another one of those shows I only watched just to say that I did. It wasn't bad, honestly.

    Madoka reminded me of it in a way, in that the kind of praise the show gets is overblown and sometimes stupid. But at least with Eva I'm not too surprised, given the type of nonsense that happens, along with the cross imagery everywhere that teenagers like to think is "deep".

    One thing I really hate about most anime fans is that they're so insecure that they're seriously desperate to justify their cartoons as "art".

    I never liked the original series of evangelion, nor the old movies.
    But i loved Evangelion 2.0 (The ending is amazing)

    Feel like I sidetracked the thread but it's a thread about side tracking so that's ok. Evangelion. I loved the animation. Great shit. But the story and characters. I hated them. Terribly. "Kids with problems" is how I put it. Then they culminated it with the 'ran out of budget' psyche episode. Ugh. Teenage angst is ok as long as it's not 75% of the show, or at least cover it up with some plot.

    A show isn't art because you set out for it to be. It just turns into one. People didn't set out for Cowboy Bebop to be a work of art, they just wrote it, and animated it and it became what it was. A classic (I was going to say Cult Classic but I know tons of people that don't even like anime that see Cowboy Bebop and think it's amazing).



    Berserk. The funny thing is. Yeah the ending of the series is legit. Intense cliffhanger but one of those where it's just "That's the end. It wasn't happy but it was still good". Then you read the manga and it goes on even longer (well over twice as long), and gets even better surprisingly. Gatts (or Guts) is the most tragic character I've ever seen. Worst life ever lol.

    I've seen all the Eva movies to date, loved them all. Not sure which one had the pan shots of the theater audience and cosplay Rei, Misato and Asuka in the street at the end, but that was really awesome!... kinda spooky

    Well Evangelion is surely full of (too much) drama, but it's because their lifes were strongly affected by Second Impact. Sadly, life is writing even more dramatic stories; I don't think many people who experienced war can live normaly.

    I've tried reading Berserk but actually got distracted, I should try again because it seems like a thing I'll enjoy.

    Berserk used to be the most tough, dark fantastic manga outhere, now is like final fantasy.
    Still it is my favourite manga of all time along with hajime no ippo!
