B&W

leave a comment »

EDIT

It was worth adding this one. The left character was coloured with various watercolour colours. The right one was coloured with blackwatercolours.

I like these ones. But perhaps shading is needed? I did some other B&W drawings some time ago, which I shaded in watercolours and then turned to grayscale. That worked fantastically. Plus, harder lines were good too.

It’s All so Wooly

Sour mood right now. It’s a little annoying. Have been having a lot of good creativity flow lately, so just ARGH to break the stride.

Dining Alone – An Eloquent Study

I wanted to take a break from the little comic I’ve been wasting time with, so I could get a little inspiration back. And so I thought this could be and entertaining idea, and actually, practical too. Although it’s mostly a joke.

Hey, I played some games I like!

The Fall. That’s a smashing CD. Not dynasti ending, but if you’re opening a new café and need to set that you made a nest for hipsters: There, enjoy.

What I got out of High School was this: I scrutinize. It was actually in the title of my final essay (Scrutinizing Hayao Miyazaki). I only spend time with something that I’m really sure I will enjoy, then as though looking a graph, I can see my enjoyment dissapearing as I dig for short-comings. But I’ve still manage to keep my optimism about these games:

  • Dragon Age: Origins is big and only for intelligent people who appreciate expansive lore, good acting and the feeling that even though a door is definitely foreverly locked, it still seems like there is SOMETHING behind it. Sure you can it enjoy it for other reasons, but these are the right ones.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, is big and stupid. But everybody can enjoy it. Enjoy it because it has a lot of fun tools to play with, like the rope-snake from the divine Mother 3 and a panflute that feels like a real instrument. Hate it because it’s flat, barren and has long boring train rides.
  • DADIU, the Danish video game education that combine a freak-load of other Danish universities, actually made a good game. It has everything going for it. Combined with a harrowing tale of industrialization with an intelligent ending (think Babel), it could would become a masterpiece. It’s also browser based through the Unity engine, which is simply a fantastic idea.
  • Does anyone else feel that they get a similar enjoyment through: video game sidequests, short stories from writers who’ve made larger works and small details that enrich a movie or book without been neccesary for the greater understanding?
  • Mew’s No More Stories, Are Told Today, I’m Sorry, They Washed Away, No More Stories, The World is Grey, I’m Tired, Let’s Wash Away (LONGEST FUCKING TITLE EVER), is a fantastic album.  And unlike Ms. Jones’, it IS dynasty ending.
