these came in the mail today

my body is so ready

haven’t touched markers for probably close to 8 or 9 years now, but it’s one of the first mediums i’ve worked with and to be honest i kinda really miss coloring traditionally since these last few years i’ve been learning how to do everything digitally. i remember when in high school id just come home and draw pencil to paper till like 5 am in the morning and while my work looked like utter shit back then, it’s still one of my fondest memories of being an artist. you just get so into it you don’t even notice the time passing and sleep is just nothing but an obstacle to what you’re doing.

this is basically my workstation/battlestation/playstation. i wish i had a bigger desk (or a drafting table because drawing on a 180 degree surface tends to skew my perspective a little #shortpeopleproblems) but it’ll do for now.

What the hell is the “red letter media test”?

It’s from his amazing take-down of the SW Prequels. It’s basically a test to see how well-rounded/fleshed out a character is:

Describe a character without saying what they look like, what kind of costume they are wearing, what their profession is, or what their role in the narrative is, and pretend you’re describing this character to a friend who hasn’t seen whatever you’re talking about. (paraphrasing)

So it mostly gets at like…personality and such.

I guess I felt that Suki fell a little flat? She is fairly opaque to us in the proper ATLA narrative. She’s fine, you know? She’s fine. But then the comparison to Opal I was going to make was probably about how dynamic a character she felt, for what felt like a similar amount of screen-time?
