I don't have a power cord yet to use my tv and my ps3 at the same time, probably going over to a friends house to use his tv so I can buy it tonight.

I'm pretty excited. I don't know too many people with 360's so I haven't gotten to play it yet.


Look at my art!

I'm going to go ahead and start up a new conversation just cus
so where is everyone going this year? back to school or something different? I realize some of you may be working people, if so thats cool I suppose.

I myself am pretty fucked because I may not be doing the thing I want to be doing and Im definately not going back to school yet. I guess that means a lot of time to improve my art i dunno

Back to school, but I switched studies. Im now in the Premaster Philosophy programme (and finishing up my Bachelor International Business administration). I have only had a few classes (today was my second day) but I can tell allready that its a much better fit. The classes are about subjects that actually interest me and that make me want to know more about them. Besides that the classes are all a lot smaller (50 students instead of 200) which make the lectures much more interactive. So yeah, Im happy.

She didn't want to but that was right after Ben's interview. Things could have change.

@Austinzombie

I am going to school again this year, but I have moved from po-dunk, tiny redneck town Jacksonville, North Carolina, to very large Jacksonville, Florida.

Haha, I moved from Jacksonville to Jacksonville. Trust me, I've heard it before.

As such, I'm also going to a much, much nicer school this year. I'm now attending the Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, which is in the top 10 best public schools in the entire country and has won tons of awards for its arts programs. I'm going in for orchestra (I play violin), which is very nice. I wanted to audition for visual arts as well but I couldn't meet the proper date for that. Shame; I would have rather gone in for visual arts.

So, I was bored in school today so I started my entry for the calender contest, it's okay, though I probably won't win anything. Also, my school is doing a competition to make a homecoming shirt, I started my design and everybody thinks I'm gonna win but it's anyone's game.
I should probably ink the bagillion sketches that I have.

ALSO: In NG news I am restarting Comic Strip of the Week, since it failed last time I made some tweaks to everything in my head and it is gonna be better than ever! (Well the ONE that I made that is)

Well, if you decide to do it, put some effort into it.

I had an awesome idea to make a flash based comic where if you look at it it all looks completely normal and readable - but if you click each frame it comes to life and plays out the scene as if you were watching the comic come to life as an actual cartoon - and then it refreezes once that pane is done playing. Kind of like a dynamic comic. Waddaya guys think? I mean I'm too busy to do it these days but I still think it;s a great concept...

Ive seen that kind of thing before, there was a whole slew of those types of things around 2003-2006 on NG. they were a little more animation based or art based, but trying to get an equal balance of both could be interesting.
The only thing that makes it a bit redundant in a way is that the point of the comic is a visual progression of static images in cells, having the cells be an animation will either make reading the thing very confusing for those who jump ahead in cells without finishing the animation, or sort of pointless since the point of the comic is to move the story forward with static cells, otherwise it might as well just be an animation. Maybe having the animation of each cell not be completely necessary, but more used as an enhancement or supplement to the static image. So instead of say, having lines to show a guy swinging his sword, the cell shows him doing the swing, and the next one shows the contact. That way for those who don't want to sit through the animation can still progress like a normal comic, while those with more time and get a more fluid experience.

@Chronamut - Yeah man, that sounds cool. They did that for Watchmen (made the Watchmen motion comic, still have to watch that)

@Jarvid - I thought you were dead (figuratively not literally).

yeah that would be the general idea - if you don't click anything it's just like any other comic - ity's only when you click on it that stuff happens - cuz I knmow there have been times where I look at a pane and IU'm like " I really with that would animate out so I could get the full experience of it"

and yeah itd be time consuming but I dunno - fun concept.

Hey, y'all! Thought I'd say hi, I've been out of commission while my computer was playing up.

To top it off, I've lost all the progress on a few pics I was doing and lost the whole thing - these were being done for other people, so.. gargh. How do you guys react to something like that?

normally if it crashes and i lose my progress so far i lose all motivation to do it again, because i know i wont get it anywhere near as good as it was before, and i dont have the patience to do it again, if i lost save files of work i was doing i guess the same thing, get annoyed and keep putting off redoing them

I hear you - but since I'm pretty much honour-bound to do these pictures, I guess I'll just have to do them... differently, keep the relationship spiced, else I'm not nearly about to commit.
