This Memory of Alessa version of the Heather statue made from Gecco’s unpainted model kit is simply amazing! The artist even added a wax layer to get the skin peeling effect!

Why can’t I find any 4x6 ivory unruled index cards. They don’t seem to exist, and this is troubling. 

Edit: Ok, wow, looks like I’ll have to get them from a special paper place. I think the way I mysteriously ended up with off-white 4x6 paper is because I had some seriously old acidic index cards. I can’t wait for that to happen again, so I’ll have to buy some naturally off-white ones. XD

Get white ones and then tone them yourself with coffee or tea, or even a bit of brown conte crayon rubbed in with cloth.

When I was a little girl my great grandma didn’t have much money, so for my birthday she would give me tapes of Bob Ross’ show she’d recorded off PBS, because she knew I liked art. She’d save up all the Kool-Aid points too and give them to me in a little crocheted pouch so I could use them to send away for Kool-Aid junk :)

Do you still have them?!

The tapes? Nah :) I still have the little crocheted pouches though. I hang on to other stuff from her too, like a bunch of Bobbsey Twin books she bought me and like, all her tacky costume jewelry. Iori’s giant ugly necklace is a lot like one of the old necklaces my great grandma wore.

Anonymous said: Speaking of terrible games I got "Thief" the reboot for $4. The only good thing I can say about it is that it actually does *look* really good. Holy shit is it bad otherwise. The opening monologue about made me vomit blood. Neu-Garret is horrendous, as is the plucky female sidekick you have for the first chapter.

That’s pretty much what I’ve heard from most sources. Then I heard the gameplay sucks too, with a wonky sound engine and finicky sneak mechanics, either of which is going to make a Thief game unplayable. They shoulda just remade TDP with them fancy graphics, that would have rocked. HD burricks!

A shift in rendering quality for emphasis

By Karaii

Rendered art is a gorgeous sight to behold. Your eyes (at least, my eyes) get all gooey and detail-happy and it gives an otherwise nice illustration an extra boost.

Arzach by Jean “Moebius” Giraud, page 33-34. EYEGASM!

In comics, however, this kind of rendering can not only be extremely exhausting for the artist, it can also be exhausting for the reader! Too much rendering all the time can oversaturate our brain’s capacity to notice differences in detail.

Why do we want our readers to notice changes in detail? Well, an artistic upgrade can help put an extra ‘oomf’ to an otherwise OK panel when something important is happening. Let me elaborate.
