No thanks, of course, to the partner who hunted down dark scraps of between and saw them shattered like the glass of his own haunted soul...ah, the darkness! It cries out for sustenance! Sustenance! Validation!
Teeeennnn ceeennnnts*

Just kidding. It looks even moodier here.

*From an episode of Jacob Two Two - library zombies will come for you if you don't return your books on time...

>:( I had a lot of things I was going to write, but now I can't think of them. I was mad at you, though. Go make fun of Pyraxis or Fiona or somebody, Fiona's just a character and she was designed to be made fun of. You have everyone else to corrupt, don't try and corrupt me.

I don't like Jacob Two-Two either. The cartoon is sick because it teaches all the wrong things. It teaches you how to be trodden on for your whole life. After you said it was exemplary Jewish, I thought that's why Jews have been downtrodden all throughout history, because they've made oppression into part of their cultural and religious identity.

I'm not mad any more but I still don't like being made fun of in my own post.

I meant don't make fun of me.

And I'm sorry I didn't thank you too. You've been really nice to me when I'm being stupid and the shiny blue paper and a bunch of other kinds are because of you. And I hope you find some colors you like for your comic. I don't think you're going to be able to use the prismacolors or other markers for backgrounds without getting streaks. You said something about watercolor, does that mean that's what you're going to try next?

I'm actually fried in both body and mind so I am taking a break from developing the IRL comic.
I have two comics from the Interstitial Journal - one is in progress and the other is on Pixton.

Hyperman is ambivalent.

I want to paint this Sunday. I still have the Marai painting in my head.

I hope you can feel better soon.

Oh wow!

We never did ours, but now we are inspired!

:) Next is Ua....

Hmmm, who will go first with us? I know! Weaver!
What did you do this one on? like the board/paper/whatever?

How many people in your system? How many do you have to do?

It's on black foam core board, I think 1/4" thick. I'm going to do the Ua one on tan.

There's five people but I'm probably doing three boards. One for Teiranen (Daria), one for Ua (Lin) and one for Ak-shamalim (Pyraxis). Celesty's probably not going to have one. There are two other places, Tapolith and Dekan, that are shared places. I think shashigai(Wolf) is doing Tapolith. He got some paper yesterday.

What exactly is a moodboard? (This should be obvious...)
Apr. 14th, 2010 01:09 am (UTC)
It's a collage of magazine cutouts and textured paper and origami paper and stuff that's supposed to evoke a particular atmosphere. It's most common in fashion design, but animators and game developers use them sometimes, too, in order to figure out the art direction for a project. The idea here is to do one for each character/place, so this is for Daria's home in Teiranen, which is a cave village.

Do a google image search for moodboard and you can find some really cool ones.

Ooooooh, that's pretty.

And of COURSE you'd live in the rock climbing place. XD

I love Dada/collage etc, and I like this, but I have to say the aura characters with the knives in opposite corners take more than the add.
Apr. 15th, 2010 11:00 pm (UTC)
Funny, I abhor Dada.

Are the figures too simplistic a symbol?
Apr. 16th, 2010 02:27 pm (UTC)
It's just that they look created rather than found. Dada is just a fancy term for collage, and when you draw on your collage it changes the entire thing.
Apr. 16th, 2010 05:14 pm (UTC)
Aha, the truth comes out. They were indeed created. I'd forgotten about that little line in the sand.

I guess I'm - *horrors!* - an earnest, original artist.

I think you may be mistaken about what Dada is.

Apr. 16th, 2010 05:45 pm (UTC)
I'm well aware that it was a movement beyond any one medium, and stand corrected/vindicated; I meant, in a roundabout way, that collage is likewise a respectable term for DaDa.
Apr. 16th, 2010 09:37 pm (UTC)
OMG, art elitists arguing over the meaning of Dada in j-t's Teiranen thread. Excuse me while I go kill myself laughing. XD
Apr. 24th, 2010 06:38 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, whoops, sorry j-t. I just like Dada because I find it amusing, and also because of my favorite supervillain team XD: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brotherhood_of_dada

I actually really like the figures drawn on this, but possibly it helps that I know more of the background about what this is of, so it seems like a coherent whole moodboard instead of a collage with things drawn on it that's supposed to stand as art alone without the story.
