Wreck-It-Ralph seems like its aimed at an older audience, any children watching the movie probably wont get a lot of the cameos and retro aesthetic thrown in the mix. The movie does a good job of bringing two dimensional styles to a 3D format, building structures, sound design, and even character movement.

I appreciate that even though Disney is for the most part selling this to families for the purpose of a child's entertainment, the film can be even more so appreciated by an older audience. It's packed with a ton of great references too.

then you'll hate yourself for loving it.

I saw it Saturday with a couple buddies. It was really good. It looks like Disney won't have to depend on the Pixar department for quality 3D as much as it used to.
I'd advise it to anyone who fancies themselves a gamer or a nerd.

I know this subject usually starts a shit storm, but i'm writing an editorial for my college paper about video games being accepted as a legitimate form of art. I'd like to cover a broad spectrum of what people expect when presented with art.

So i'd like to ask, what are all of your individual opinions of what the meaning and definition of art is.

Whether or not something falls under the myriad of definitions of the word 'art' has nothing to do with its individual quality. Anyone who would create an evaluative category that specifically denies the quality and value of a vast medium of human creative output is an elitist cunt.

I watched it with my band, it was alright, probably lower on my scale of animated movies of the year

But then again I am very picky and stuff

So.... anyone have any good color schemes that go along with wood textures and wood colors?

Splyth suggested a dark green. Kind of like forest green. I think it might work, but I wanna have a couple ideas in my arsenal for tomorrow.

See I'm working on an ad, and the background is being changed to a wood texture. And none of the previous colors work with it, so tomorrow at work I get to try and recolor the ad.

Most of the wood colors are close to a gold/yellow/orange but if Mr. Mort wants them to be darker, then as Cthulhu as my witness I'll figure out how to make them darker in Corel.

So as I said, anyone got any suggestions?

Human brains love to see earth tones paired with sky tones- so browns with blues.

Totally depends on what the ad is for... a spa? lawn maintenance equipment? Flooring? Camping? Would need more details to give any kind of sensible answer :P

The flyer already has some light blues on it, and they kind of clash so far, Perhaps if I push the blue up or down the a little more.

my 88 year old boss...
trust me, I wish I could use Illustrator or something... but gotta use what they provide
it also doesn't help that I'm using Coreldraw x4

I'm not great with color, never real have been, so this is my chance to practice and get some feed back. Thanks for the help so far.

yeah, but I think I'm off the hook for that one... for now.

Tomorrow I gotta vector a penguin. and then do some filing, and if I feel like it, I got handed my first logo assignment that I can work on. Its got to be some sort of tractor tire or something.

Although Mr. Mort can come in any time and tell me to work on something else. He is the boss after all.

I finally bought a new tablet today, haven't had one in almost two years, which made it hard to do one form of art for a whiles.

I bought a Bamboo Splash because I've been borrowing various artist friend's tablets and I find I dislike having huge active areas, I hate multi touch and I don't feel a great difference in various models and the Splash is closest to my original model which was the Bamboo Fun circa 2006.

I'm installing Art Rage since it came with it and I'ma see how intuitive that program might be.

Just excited is all =]

I actually have something generally constructive to link to! Hooray!!

If you are interested in making comics or something, here are some tips for writing dialogue. Although I do disagree on the overly artifical writing bit (which I like a lot), it's a cool read none the less.
