  1. Unpopular opinions you have

    Gimme Sawdust over either any day of the week.
  2. terminoob's Sketchy-Sketchbook

    I've been really frustrated lately because I felt like I haven't made any progression in the past year and I feel like I'm just missing something and not getting it and just having a general meltdown about my art, so I decided to compare last year (that I thought was amazing, mind you - it was the only time I ever aggressively defended my work in a critique) with this week. Also a note that I used the pages I did a year ago as rough layouts for the ones I'm doing now. Cuh-razy.
  3. terminoob's Sketchy-Sketchbook

    I liked these two panels.
  4. ready player one

    Wikipedia's saying that the film rights were bought before the novel was published (I think I remember seeing somewhere that it was originally a film pitch that Ernest Cline couldn't get off the ground so he made it into a book) but I don't think it was anything serious until Spielberg got attached in 2015.
  5. ready player one

    I'm sure it'll be better than the book, but that's not saying much.
  6. Pokemon, bitch

    I'm digging it. I wasn't super in love with either of Lycanroc's forms before, but the orange is really doing it for me.
  7. I still have a year. More than enough time to devise an escape plan.
  8. Teen Titans

    Well, you at least have this to look forward to, if that's any consolation.
  9. Ask the Kat

    It's hard to say. Everyone's an asshole, and I have a huge problem with how the season played out (and what it means for a potential season two), but I thought all the actors were really great and typically a lot better than the material they were given. I'd say it's worth a watch just to enjoy the cast they were able to wrangle together (highlights I think being Colbie Smulders, Fred Savage, Billy Eichner, and Seth Rogen's guest spot), but don't expect amazing writing or likable characters (unless you view the whole thing as a parody of the "college friends getting back together" sort of thing)?
  10. Ask the Kat

    Have you checked out Friends From College?
  11. How do you listen to your music?

    Always Spotify. I typically will never run into problems finding an artist (and if I do it's usually not an artist I desperately want to be listening to), I find so much good new music in the Discover section or in my Discover Playlist (much more than I ever have trying to use Pandora or surfing YouTube suggestions) - not to mention all of the other playlists floating around for specific genres and moods, and Premium is just too good of a deal.
  12. I think I missed this fad

    Hm. This is a good question, because I don't remember if I ever got totally comfortable using one. It always felt just a little bit off to me. Like it was just a bit too fat for my hand. I think I used it every day for a little over a year before I switched to a regular brush (which is what I use now and have been for three years and I find it to be so much better in every way). Don't let it deter you, though - I was getting the hang of it while I was also doing animation, so my attention had to be split and I couldn't give the brush pen my full attention. I'm sure if I was just able to focus on inking with that I would've gotten more comfortable and confident a lot faster (namely because when I could devote all my time to inking with a brush I felt comfortable using one after about two months, compared to my other classmates who took year(s) to get comfortable with one). I know plenty of people who only use brush pen though, so it's really just personal preference Just keep at it, honestly. But in a way that's purposeful. Part of the reason why I got so comfortable with a brush so quickly is because of how obsessed I got with practicing. Before I even touched a penciled page, I would take out my sketchbook and que up Farscape (I was making my way through the series at the time) - and I'd just make lines in my sketchbook. Just testing control, learning how to grip the brush correctly, consciously practicing going from thick to thin and back again, trying out different techniques for getting volume and whatnot. A lot of inking technique, trying to learn it all and get it right. For one or two episodes (depending on how I was feeling that day) that'd be the only thing I did, and when I had gone through half my sketchbook I'd start on the penciled page. Even with that, I'd have, like, anywhere from two-five copies of the page ready to go, because I'd want to keep trying until I got it right. Everyone else I knew would just go straight into a page without warming up first, and they were always frustrated with how it came out. Now, don't be as insane as me - there's no reason for that. My insecurity and need to prove myself was getting the best of me and I was going crazy because of it. But, regardless, practice is still important. I'm not sure how many drawings you're doing a week, or how many hours a day you spend drawing, but whatever the numbers are, if you want to get good at inking you gotta bump the numbers up a smidge. An extra drawing a week, an extra thirty minutes a day. Something simple like that - nothing crazy. Ugh, so good. So funny. Ray Romano and Holly Hunter killed it, and Zoe Kazan is just too cute and charming (an aside: she's in a romcom that came out a few years ago called What If, opposite Daniel Radcliffe, she's as amazing in that as she was in this, if you're interested/haven't seen it yet). Kumail and Emily have such an amazing relationship, I'm so glad they were able to bring it to the general public and I'm so glad it's, like, legitimately doing well (as opposed to something, like, Mike Birbiglia's movie that came out last year, Don't Think Twice, which never really got going in terms of wide release). I hope it leads to more things for Kumail - it feels like he's been just shy of breaking into the spotlight for so long.
  13. I think I missed this fad

    Alrighty, sounds good. I'll get on it soon.
  14. I think I missed this fad

    Do I need to finish Arrow season 4 and Legends season 1? I fell out of both shows so I'd have a lot of catching up to do.
