Guardians of the Galaxy was absolutely stellar. One of the funniest movies I’ve seen in a long time, and well paced to boot! Not to mention the character interactions were great. A+ 11/10 would recommend
Step 1: Take screenshot of a scene from a movie you like.
Step 2: Draw the same scene but replace the characters with your OCs.
Need to try this.
I want to keep practicing this scripting/graphic storytelling fusion I learned about, and would love some scenarios to toss Cyros and Mal into. Can be funny, dramatic or anything in between!
Ask box is open!
like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this
there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as an awful place
that idealism is— easy, i guess. butterflies and sunshine and love are easy things to have in your head.
but i’ve known since i was fifteen that idealism— faith in humanity— optimism— is the most difficult thing in the entire world.
i constantly struggle to have faith in humanity, because it’s really, really easy to lose it. it’s easy to look at the news and go “what were you expecting? of course humans behave this way.” it’s easy to see the world and go “ugh, there’s no hope there.” and the years when i believed that were easy. miserable— but easy.
it is hard work to see the good in people. it is hard work to hope. it is hard work to keep faith and love and joy and appreciation for beauty in my daily life.
and when moviemakers and tv producers and writers go “omg!!! all characters are selfish and act poorly and don’t love each other, nothing ever happens that is happy or good, that’s so much more realistic, that’s so much more adult”
no, it’s not
it’s the most childish thing i can imagine.
Very true. This is why I go full tilt in writing optimistic stories for most of my headworlds. Even if there’s insane struggle there’s always a silver lining.
Here is a tutorial that always helps me with reffing: thefrogman.me/post/22… and here’s a handy chart for photo sets: i57.tinypic.com/16gzm9u…
Thank you kindly. Saving these for future reference!
Ok updated that photoset so it’s not QUITE as blurry. It still reads ok both in long form and in chunks so happy days.
Tumblr has a constraint of height too. I don’t know it of the top of my head, but very long pics will generate shitty _500/_250 thumbs, because they’ll fall in the “max-height” rule, get a smaller width THEN they’ll be stretched to fit 500px.
Good grief, tumblr get your act together. But thanks, I’ll try that in future.
Yes, that’s me icon! I decided to just make it my official logo after a while. I need to like. Make official nice looking logos of them all.
And Reid is very new! But yes, fabulous as hell. She’ll school your ass with utter class and grace.
