“Kevdak’s Demise” Ep 52 *SPOILERS* Critical Role Animatic

One of the most glorious animatics I’ve ever seen, made by Takayuuki. As mentioned above in the title, this contains major spoilers for Critical Role.

anonymous asked:

Heyo! Myself and two of my close friends are trying to create our own Michael-esque red sweatshirts. What kind of patches do you see him wearing? (**as many as possible would be awesome i'm not very creative. go wild**)

ALRIGHT so of course we have the one that everyone knows, the RISE ABOVE RACISM patch (click on it, i have a link to the real one :0) along with another that i dont recognize Edit:. This is actually a Bob Marley patch! You can find it here

Here we can see he has a patch with what appears to be a turntable on it and another thats a little too blurry

  here are two more

A David Bowie patch you can find Here and another i dont recognize

And lastly, here are two more

Those are all of the ones he actually has

From there, almost everyone in the fandom draws him with a rainbow flag patch (although depending on you and who you’re around that would be up to you really). After that, I’d just get a bunch of retro video game ones! Think pokeball, triforce, pixel heart, pacman/ghost etc. etc. I hope this helped, and I’d love to see the finished products !!

Brain: What is it you love so much about Night in the Woods

Me: Well, let’s see.
1. It shows the harsh realities of living in the lower middle class
2. Accurately portrays the struggles of a starving urban town
3. Puts a lot of value into the bonds between family and friends
4. Shows the inconsistencies and sometimes unhealthy realities concerning religion and what happens when you put too much anchorage in your beliefs
5. Gives a very logical perspective to religion and ethereal entities as a whole
6. Has a mentally ill character that is not romanticized, is not evil, and is not magically ‘cured’ by the end
7. Shows that suppressing anger is not always the best option.
8. Has very relatable and realistic characters
9. Shows the struggles of ordinary folks just trying to make due and make the best out of their shitty lives
10. Doesn’t spoon feed you the idea of happily ever after and shows that a lot of the time life sucks and there is no real reason for it and you just have to roll with the punches and get hurt and it’s okay because when it hurts to lose something, that something meant something to you.

Brain: And the gay couple

Me: Well, yes, they were a very nice touch

Fic idea set in AOTC where Obi-Wan, concerned about Anakin’s mindset that is causing his dreams of his mother and what they mean for his potential knight trials, decides to get him some closure. So instead of hiding on Naboo (where anyone would think to look for her) Padme and Anakin go to hide out on Tattooine (with enough tattooine money slipped to them by Obi-Wan to buy Shmi’s freedom, because I headcanon Obi-Wan tried to get the council to free her, but failed, so he’s…fixing that. Hush.)

Padme and Anakin get there early enough that while Shmi has still been tortured, she’s not near death and they nurse her instead of having their happy time on Naboo - and so don’t have the first kiss, sleep together, or have a discussion about their relationship/future. Instead, they become friends, and Padme and Shmi become listening ears to Anakin’s very confused feelings about Obi-Wan who has just proved everything Anakin thought about him a lie…

(Also at some point Shmi hears enough from her son about Palpatine to have her ‘someone is threatening/hurting/grooming/preying on your child instincts pricked.)

Hey Charlie! First off, I adore your art. It gives me all the feels. Secondly, since you're primarily a self taught artist I'm wondering if you have any resources you strongly recommend for someone hoping to someday have a similar job to yours in concept art? If you've already answered this question just let me know and I'll comb through your blog to find it!

ESSAY IMPENDING.

I think, along with resources, I’d always recommend having a good idea of what ‘area’ you want to work in too. My job is kind of a strange one (in that it’s an house job but we’re not producing the games or films or actual products.) We are a step in the production line. I get to be part of sweet projects, but also I get to be part of many… I’m not locked into whatever a studio might be making for 2 or 3 years etc. My fingers are in a lotta pies.

The reason I say that is because a lot of people coming into concept will likely need more skills than I have. I am 95% a 2D artist. I work with 3D but very rarely, and not enough to know the inns and outs. I like 2D… and I consider illustration to be the sweetest spot of all the work I do, so I’m quite happy with that balance (and I’m an old fucking curmudgeon and I don’t wanna learn no 3D.)

If you went for a traditional role in a games studio, it will probably be more expected for you to be fluent in 3D. Not always of course! But it’s likely another good skillset to have. Purely 2D (just art focused) roles are not something that I see as often as mutiltasking roles. Which makes a lot of sense. 2D art is often mostly needed at the beginning of a project, and briefly at the end. In my seven years at Atomhawk I’ve seen a lot of people in other studios laid off, and a lot of studios go under. So, multitasking roles mean people will always have something to do.

APOLOGIES. I’M SOUNDING A LITTLE DOOM AND GLOOM. Great jobs exists! People will always make cool stuff!

I’m very much a jack of all trades and my job demands a lot of different things: characters / turn arounds / outfit designs / expression sheets / illustration / marketing art / pitch art / but it’s all primarly focused around characters. So. If characters are what you want - look into that! I would say that when it comes to apply for / getting work etc, we always love to see range. If someone isn’t showing me all the process behind their work it’s likely the first thing I’m going to ask for when it comes to an interview. I think if you have shiny work (on a freelance basis) a client would have enough confidence in the end result. But for a production role like mine, I wanna see that stuff.

Rough sketches through to shiny polished work. The whole lot. I want it all. I want to see people’s thinking! I’m rambling.

First of all: be able to draw well. Know your characters. Know your figures. Know your anatomy enough to make it convincing and be able to twist it when you need to. We get a lot of people who apply, who, quite simply (don’t hate me) are not good enough yet. We have people who work in tons of different styles and methods but at the heart of it, they can draw well.

DESIGN. Mother of god. Design. Drawing well is the first step, but you also have to have that creative flair to be able to come up with ideas and be able to sell them convincingly. Drawing the thing is only half the battle. No one wants a beautifully rendered character wearing the most impractical / boring outfit you’ve ever seen (just an example). Thinking logically about design is something I’ve seen underestimated many times over the years. In fact, I’d go as far as to say it’s more important than someones drawing abilities. When it comes down to it, drawing is just the tool to represent the design.

Resources wise: the internet is your oyster! Cast a wide net. Create the kind of work you want to do but also push yourself. I think the results are usually better when artists find an area they’re good in and the push the boundaries of that. Better than trying to be a jack of every single trade possible. Don’t have an awesome portfolio full of character work and then think ‘oh, wait, this is just characters, maybe I should stick a fucking car in there too?’ YOU KNOW? Do what you do - and do it well.

Briefly just a few of the things that helped me most: any massive black videos you can find. Mostly for process. Jason Chan’s videos easily had the most impact for me, both in learning how to improve my process and painting the kind of characters I wanted to. Micheal Hampton and Mike Mattesi (force) for anatomy and energy in poses. Your peers! Your favourite artists in the industry at the moment! The places and people you will learn the most from are always so very individual.

Shit that was long. Good luck!

PS. It’s also my humble opinion that you should never take all of your advice from just one person - just take the pieces that click for you :)

“For your post-submission deadline pleasure! This is my HBP missing moment entry, a follow up to my story Restless (if you haven’t read it, you should).”

Every pragmatic instinct she possessed had railed against her not to drink that tea. Only Ginny’s threat of dragging her to Pomfrey had inspired her to partake. In the end Hermione had closed her eyes, thrown her head back and downed the contents of the tea cup with a thoroughly unladylike gulp.

“Good girl,”  Ginny quipped, drawing a snarl from the brunette on the sofa.

“Shut it! I don’t know why you’re so keen on having me drink it. I am sure that it is nothing but ordinary,” her eyes went wide as she swayed back into the cushions.

“What’s that?”

“I think I’ll just…rest my eyes…for just a minute.”

“Sure. I’ll get you a blanket.”

@@@

Hermione rolled leisurely over onto her back and opened her eyes. Ginny was right, Granny Pruett was a genius! That’s the best sleep I’ve had in months! She wasn’t sure what time it was, but considering the fact that she was generally an early riser and that the night fire still burned in the fireplace, she knew it was still not quite dawn. That will give me a chance to get showered and dressed before I have to deal with…

A light snore from close by startled her, and she bolted up to confront the culprit. She drew in a sharp breath, feeling that her heart had stopped when she saw Ron sleeping in the chair closest to her.

She was afraid at first that she had woken him, but as his steady breathing continued she felt certain that he was still asleep. Why is he here? If Ginny opened her big mouth! Hermione’s first instinct was to dart up the stairs; however, some gnawing hunger led her to take advantage of the moment and look at his sleeping form.

There was no way that he could have been comfortable, his arms and legs could not be contained by the inadequate size of the armchair. The light from the fire was making patterns on his face. Oh, God! His face! It had been so long since she had been able to look at him! A fist of longing clutched her poor heart as she stared at the familiar lines of his jaw, covered in ginger stubble.  She had never seen him so unshaven, so manly, yet so vulnerable at the same time.

There was something so intimate about watching him sleep; if she let her mind go she could imagine that she was waking up next to him. Stop it! You’re only torturing yourself! He probably just figured out he needs your help on a potions essay and fell asleep waiting for you to come out of your tea-coma!  Shaking her head, she stood up as quietly as she could manage, planning to make a run for it. Hermione gasped as a large warm hand grabbed her wrist.

“Please…don’t go.”

She looked down, and was caught, not only by his grip, but by the sincerity in his blue eyes.
