This may be just me, but does anyone else draw more at night then during the day?

I remember reading somewhere that people are more creative during the night verses the day, and I noticed that I draw a hell of a lot less during the summer. I wonder if it could be because the sun is up for longer?

Or that I'm just really lazy when I have any free time.

I draw almost exclusively at night and pretty much always have. Now its because I work during the day, before was because I was in class during the day. On days off I prefer to get all the errands and socializing bits done during the day.

I do feel more creative at night but I would say that most of the drawing at night comes more from me just being busy all the time during daylight hours.

Just noticed an Enemy Creation contest in General, where people come up with creature concepts for an RPG.
Might be a fun forum activity to get stuck into.

Thanks man, love you too.

So hey, would the fine people of these forums prefer Creature of the Week or Character of the week contests? I'll probably do ChOW anyway, but it's good to give your minions an illusion of choice.

Well, ashman was running the CHOW's, so you might need to contact him to see if he's okay with you taking over it.
I think COW would be nice, because there's a bit more freedom allowed, and we haven't had one in a long time.

Like jonny I'd prefer cow, but that's mostly because back when I first came here, the cows (at the time hosted by you) were one of the things that really got me hooked to the art forum.
I'd like an EOW too; but it might be difficult to get many entries for that.

Brave was quite great and, like pretty much all Pixar movies, incredibly inspiring from an art standpoint.

yeah, its pretty amazing what they did with the environments, usually 3d models follow straight lines, but there isn't any straight lines in nature, it makes for some pretty stunning visuals and only lord knows how much the polygon count was.

Straight Lines? If you mean by sharp edges that arn suppose to be around a organic figure than yeah I can see you can really how most things that arn't man made to be completely natural. honestly the amount of polygons does not really detract the appeal of a movie ...AT TIMES.

Environments are fun easy and fast, but many artist prolly think otherwise since 80% of the art here is characters so i don't think that would work.
What might work is a collab thread, like someone starts out with an abstract painting of color blobs, another will take this image and alter it, another will try and make up some objects out of the color blobs, another will render these, anoter will do some more adjustments etc, etc.
The finished work could be posted on the art101 account with all the participating artists in the comments.

I actually liked most of the movies.

Dreamworks are just in it for the money, i felt that the first one was very grounded in some form of reality and played out very good, but as the series progressed it just got worse and worse due to it getting silly, its like nightmare on elm street series of films, it began as a competent horror movie and by the 5th film Freddie was rapping, it just diverged from the elements that made it good, and no doubt the next ice age will do the same, I'm not bad mouthing Dreamworks though, they have great conceptual ideas, but they ruin it by adding pop-culture references and try to make a big deal by adding B-list celebrities to please their executives, their creative side is great, however, their ulterior motives to make money are seriously corroding their credibility.

Madagascar started to suck since the second movie.

Most sequels can't hold up to the original, however my girlfriend said she enjoyed the third one, much better than the second.

Wait like right now? I suppose it's better to know what it's like before wasting your hard earned on something shitty but The bad thing for watching those new movies that just came out in theaters is that there's always a occasion like when one of the people are moving in front of the view of the camera or if there's like interuptions such as it not even focus on the whole screen like sometimes they can't hold the damn thing still.

Yeah i don't want to go into this conversation about specifics because what I do is illegal and is against forum rules to talk about illegal stuff so ill be brief :

Those are cam copies, that's the past, theres a whole other "trailer" system out there that i'm not going to talk about because it's illegal and you should probably not do it.

To learn more: visit your local Darknet

Maybe I'm not looking in the right places for that "trailer" system when watching watching Snowwhite & The huntsman had to wait for the cam copy on the day of theatrical release. If a trailor system Is something I had to fill in survey and order stuff before seeing it seems it'd be time consuming... unless the whole movie with or without Extra features was somehow leaked by one of there producers on to some torrent site like TPB.

exactly, It's technically not illegal in Sweden but under US law its very illegal, and since this is an american website, its against forum policy, and I really feel uncomfortable talking about it knowingly that it might potentially get me a ban so
