Additional story notes for the TraitorRecently I thinking over the first part of the Traitor and several points of that episode I had to think over apply some logic to it because fo the "willing suspension of disbelief" factor.Additional story notes for the Traitor1 year ago in Personal More Like This
On Cobra raid on Texas City, I've decided to write out the Joes using a Mauler tank for lighter vehicles since this is based logic again. The problem when using an 105mm or a 125mm cannon against a Trubble Bubble, you don't score many direct hits so I'm going with lighter vehicles such LAVs and Strykers. I wanted to give an additional sense of realism that at times I thought the Mauler, the MOBAT were used in roles that they were not meant for, also the Slugger was designed as Self-Propelled Artillery much like the Paladin which not designed to directly go toe-to-toe with armor but to support advancing infantry and armored units such as the M-1A1 Abrams.
The armor treatment formula, I'm going not going to make it this all-in-one invincibility. Such as for example, the treatment sprayed on Stryker wi

First, as promised....
(She's been working on her expressions. Can you tell?)
Thank you to all my headshot commission people for your patience and understanding! Things are still crazy loco around here, and I'm desperately trying to make up any sleep that I can. Looking forward to the day when I can do some sketches and turn out some more headshot commissions. Kierra is showing more signs of alertness, which has its pros and cons as far as my daily life goes, but there's still no semblance of any kind of routine yet.
For now, here are the people who are waiting for headshots.... Thank you, guys!!

World-Building: Warp Speeds of Deltaverse ShipsThis is a collection of notes that I'm using to figure out appropriate Warp Speed ratings for my Delta-Universe starship designs, which are from what is essentially a J.J. Abrams-styled version of the TWOK Movie Era and have to adhere to known canon (and Expanded Universe) information from that era. Remember, in the "old chart," Warp 10 wasn't that fast and certainly wasn't the "ultimate speed limit."World-Building: Warp Speeds of Deltaverse Ships2 months ago in Personal More Like This
The Alternate Reality version of the Constitution Type Class-I Heavy Cruiser seems to have the exact same speed ratings as the Prime Reality version of the U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701).

Legend Of Korra? Legend of DisappointmentThe Legend of Korra Season 2-Book 2: Spirits premiered today. I've been waiting for a year, and after watching it, I was actually disappointed. I am actually not impressed.Legend Of Korra? Legend of Disappointment3 months ago in Personal More Like This
WARNING, ENTERING RANT MODE. RANT IMMINENT, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
Legend of Korra,
I have things I have to say to you, otherwise I think I might go insane by the next episode of your show. There are a lot of things I like about it, but the one thing I hate most of all is completely overwhelming my love for your show. And that would be the girl in the title-the wrong girl if you ask me.
Korra. Freaking Korra. She's trying so hard to be Aang, but failing. Kind of like Pacific Rim tries so hard to be Evangelion, but fails (Does that even make sense-Pacific Rim is pretty much Evangelion with logic since Evangelion takes all the facts and logic in the world and throws them out the window).
I tried to like Korra. I really wanted to give her a chance. I mean, no one was going to replace Aang in my heart, but I was willing

I did not like how the episodes started, so many problems for some one hour premiere of wasted potential and here are the reasons. There are fewer Pros than Cons and that's a problem. SPOILERS AHEAD PEOPLE.
Asami knows what she must do, her purpose is to bring future industries back on track. She had been respectful with Bolin even with a few funny sibling moments between them like ruffling up Bolin's hair and appreciating him, something he never received much from Mako or Korra.
Asami had been a better friend sibling for Bolin than Mako ever was.
Animation looked good, spirits look vicious, the colors in the show look unique, landscapes look amazing to the viewer's eye.

Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex MachinaOK, I think I've calmed down enough to write a review now. Spoilers ahead!Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex Machina1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First, let's start off with what worked in the season finale. The animation was just...incredible, the action was exciting and sweeping in its scale, and Zuko's voice was reincarnated as General Iroh the goddamn determinator! which was actually kinda distracting, cause I kept expecting him to be like "I AM SO GOOD AT BEING GOOD!!. Hiroshi Sato showed his true colors as a hate-filled douchenozzle, and Asami showcased her usual class and determination when faced with truly shitty circumstances (on a side note, I've always had a hard time believing that Mr. Sato invented all those airplanes and mechas and stuff, because honestly, when we met him he kinda gave off a Henry Ford vibe, not an "engineering genius" vibe like that crazy eyebrow dude from A:TLA. But whatever, that's a minor point). And of course Naga was a badass...and according to tumblr, there are now people who ship Bolin x Naga. Just...why.

The sheer amount of talent in the industry has ballooned in the last decade and we're facing the beginning of a renaissance in comics.
Saw the people at Narr8 and the things they're trying to do with motion comics. It's going to be interesting to see how that plays out. I think the idea that Comixology is going to be producing original content is freaking HUGE. They have a wider reach than most people think. There's a ton of "What ifs" floating around out there.
Soon I'll post my diatribe on the "Five Year Burst" as it pertains to companies productivity and the creation of the com
Inking on the L.A.M.The past few weeks were emotionally rough, so I found myself closing down, creatively, and retreating into an analytic frame of mind. I started getting very picky about technical things, focusing like a laser on - you guessed it - brush strokes. This sort of thing has the potential to quickly degenerate to the level of a symptom. In my case, I think it starts as a symptom, which is my signal to elevate it to practical knowledge and skill by channeling it through art.Inking on the L.A.M.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
In any event, after a long period of "obsessing," I formulated a new, streamlined understanding of brush inking abstracted from all I have explained so far. And it should come as no surprise that, as with my original brush handling "katas", it's based on my experience in the martial arts.
"Inking on the L.A.M." * is a simple, practical, and elegant way to approach controlling ink effects by matching brush movement to the kind of lines and marks one wants to make. It is analytical, not intuitive, wh
