I just wanted to eat breakfast ;(

welp now we know the distinction between the two

Have….have people…not eaten shredded wheat before? The regular sized ones?

You put it in a bowl and pour milk on it (with sugar + cinnamon if you’re not some lunatic fiber satan who just wants to eat wheat strings) and let it soak a bit before breaking it up and eating bite sized portions with your spoon.

DO PEOPLE NOT KNOW THIS?!

NONE OF US KNEW THAT

OH COURSE WE DON’T KNOW! IT DOESN’T HAVE A CARTOON ON THE BOX NOR IS IT MADE UP OF 99% SUGAR!

   What you’re about to see is artwork done for FUN and on our own SPARE TIME, and not part of any of the production whatsoever. :) 

    Rest assured, this will never happen, folks, so please don’t freak out! 

We don’t know what to say…other than this being kind of a helpful character design practice…thing. And concept art.

It’s human VeggieTales with the updated VTITH style… Hopefully we didn’t hit rock-bottom with this one. Haha.

It’s kind of embarrassing to post this, because, well, yeah. We just like messing around with concepts a bit too much sometimes.

At least these are all the characters revealed in the official trailer so far…

(Yes, people at the office know about this too. They just thought it was funny!)

Yup. Just our interpretations of them. Everyone can draw them however they like, though! :X

Done in PS and SAI. Just some character explorations, silhouettes, and some small environment stuff. The bottom part was the color rough, and the very top pic is a somewhat final color lineup painted entirely using the lasso tool with no underlying sketch.

I think it works pretty well. Now all that needs to happen is for Bob and Larry to find some sort of magic portal that takes them to a strange world where they have opposable thumbs…

To ALL those artists out there who take commissions and sell their art of any type this is for you! If anyone ever tries to argue with your prices show them this! Take pride in your work! Never settle for anything less then what you believe to be a fair price for the efforts and passion you pour into your work.
YOU ARE WORTH IT!

Seconding this SO hard right now.
I’ve known of so many artists who were amazing but refused to charge the proper amount for their hard work. It’s a crime.

All commissioners must remember this when you commission someone!!


Knowing what to charge is a tough thing for anyone; things that have largely intangible benefits (like most art) are even more so. The best advice I’ve heard is to start the conversation with what the client wants to accomplish and how you’ll meet that. Once you’re on the same page and the client knows the value that you’re going to provide, then talk price. Granted, this won’t work in every case (I know a guy that had a flat rate for a set design on his website and did pretty well with it), but it’s something to shoot for when doing custom work.

And to second what others have said: YOU ARE WORTH IT.

This is a tool-assisted speedrun of Super Mario World with interesting results.

Some background:

  • A speedrun is where a player will play through a game as quickly as possible, often by exploiting glitches to skip parts of or entire levels.
  • Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ) is a festival where said speedruns are performed live on actual hardware in order to raise money for charity.
  • A tool-assisted speedrun (TAS) is where emulator tools such as frame-by-frame recording are used to record a series of controller presses that are often not physically possible. Instead of starting the game and playing through with a controller, a TAS is essentially “power on the console, then press ‘play’ on the controller recording.”

Usually a TAS has a character run through walls and do other crazy tricks that, while impossible for a human to perform with a normal controller, are still within the normal setting for the game.

And then there’s this one.

Benny’s spaceship moment from the Lego Movie in Japanese. This movie is so cute in Japanese!! XD Benny (CV: Hiroshi Iwasaki)

Yes. All of this.

Jay Hathaway sums up #Gamergate:

Gamergate participants believe that game journalism has been corrupted—there are too many writers who maintain friendships or other close relationships with game developers.

Never mind for now that the game developers who are most often complained about are people like Zoe Quinn—independent, crowd-funded, and frequently from underrepresented identity groups—#Gamergate’s mission (publicly, anyway) is to convince games writers to adopt the same ethical standards as “real journalists.”

Real journalism means asking tough questions and demanding answers, including questions about a lack of creativity (such as why protagonists tend to have similar back stories or why women characters tend to be treated in similar ways).

Chris Coyne from Keybase (a site I’ve written about before) picks apart a notion the Washington Post had about a ‘golden key’ for encrypting smartphone data. Spoiler alert: not only is it impossible, it’s dangerous.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: a system that is easy for law enforcement to access is even easier for hackers to access. There is no foolproof way for a technological system to be limited to one or the other.

Remember when Disney was all like ‘f— how races work and homogeneous casts and couples’?

Black and white couple produce fillipino-american child. White dude is the valet. White step mother, one white step sister, one black step sister. Just a jumble, and it ought to happen again.

Some facts from imdb:

First multi-racial cast performing Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.

Whitney Houston was producing Rodger and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” and was to star in it until she decided that Brandy Norwood would make a better Cinderella. Brandy would not do it unless her idol Whitney took the Fairy Godmother role.

Brandy Norwood became the first African-American to play Cinderella. This version broke viewer-ship records when it debuted, and it holds the record for the bestselling video for a made for TV movie.

So f— any noise where people say audience don’t want to see a mixed race couple, or more people of color. This was a success from television. I still remember Brandy singing Impossible. 

That ought to happen again. Mixed race live action cast where the relationships don’t made genetic or racial sense.

I didn’t actually see it when it aired, but we rented it on video (VHS!!) later. (The perks of having a little sister…) I can honestly say it’s one of the best versions of the Cinderella story I’ve seen/heard.
