Let me explain… No, there is too much, let me sum up Around April, I was looking for comic work, like ya do, and I came upon an opportunity to draw, p…
Oh my goodness I love this. My die would be shamed for so much I doubt it would al fit. Not least of all crit failing twice with my rogue trying to pick the locks binding him. Twice. My dm decided that the insane odds for that meant the due hated me. Didn’t keep him from giving me a point of damage each round until I was rescued
You know what’s an oddly big pet peeve of mine in, primarily, games but also comics and movies?
Birds don’t expel their feathers like that. Playing dark souls for the first time and the monster sized raven that grabs you after the intro level should be bald if there are feathers flying like that.
It’d be like if every time you turned your head you shot hair in big plumes. But it’s become such shorthand for ‘this is a bird so rather than draw or render the feathers different than say, stone, we’ll just make these little feathers drop off everywhere’
I miss you pictochat. how I wish you were online and on the 3ds.
Aw man, that would have been so fun! I was literally one of 4 people in my school that had a DS throughout my high school career. It wasn’t until I started bringing my GBA SP that people were willing to play games, and then it was only the old Tetris game that was always in it.
Superman. It’s always been Superman and it always will be. A good Superman story is hard to find. They’re rare to the point that I can make a comprehensive list of them off the top of my head. But when one does come along… A good Batman story is entertaining and bad ass. And it makes you think “Batman is cool.” A good Green Lantern story is generally fraught with emotional peril but, at the end, you’ll wish you had a power ring. A good Superman story fills you with awe.
It’s the mythology of a sun god who wished he was a man because he saw something so great in us. It’s the story of a hero who could move whole worlds and see through stars and hear a whisper on the other side of the planet… who fell in love with a storyteller. It’s about a man and his dog.
Every single day, you can turn on the news and hear about something bad happening. People do terrible things to each other all the time. And, on the worst days, you might just sit down and get cynical, thinking thoughts like “maybe we are inherently evil. Maybe there’s just something wrong deep down in our hearts.”
And then there’s Superman. Looking down at the world with an unfathomable sadness. Waiting for us to join him in the sun. All the while, truly believing something only an impossible man could believe.
“If you knew how you are loved, not one of you would raise a hand in rage again.”
There’s a psychology to storytelling. It’s really quite simple. When presented with something light, we look for darkness. When presented with darkness, we look for the light. It gives a story depth. In a world without a Superman, we made one for our fiction. To guide us and make us feel brave. To let us hope.
You will believe a man can fly.
Absolutely love this. I don’t read a lot of DC, and next to no Superman regularly, because I feel not enough of the people who write Superman get this. He is GOOD. He’s a humble, loving, trusting, kind person who helps. Not cause his parents were killed when he was young (I mean, they were but it doesn’t or shouldn’t affect him, since he was a baby), he’s not out for revenge or money or anything for himself. He just knows that he’s got the ability to help, so he does.
And now, just one day into not working on a comic, I’m thinking of a new story I want to tell. may be looking into world building kit by http://www.zompist.com/kit.html, though I haven’t done language yet. Maybe as I go along
