Personal Quote: I'm doing this to get back at my future self.
I spent 2 hours yesterday rationing out toys, money, and candy between large and small plastic eggs. Stuffed about a dozen eggs before I realized I put too much value in them and had to crack them open to remove some things and place them somewhere else. Would kids even care about prize distribution consistency in an Easter Egg Hunt?

1.) Large eggs have better prizes in them, and should henceforth be hidden far better than their small counterparts.
2.) Large eggs contain either money or a toy, and candy, but not all 3 at the same time.
3.) Eggs should be placed in safe areas and not the neighbor's cactus collection, rose bushes, or the "spider hole."
4.) Once the hunt is over, inspect the grounds to get leftover eggs for "processing" purposes. (cuz the sweetest types of prizes are the ones that are unclaimed)
5.) Make sure the kids/egg ratio matches up with the eggs everyone else brings. Ain't nothin' sadder than a kid with no eggs after an Easter Egg Hunt... except an Easter Egg Hunt with nobody in it. This should've been Rule #1.

To ensure that reading this journal wasn't a total waste, come check out this artist:…

It's not a plug for He Qi, it's just that the best place to view a lot of this person's artwork was the shop. :P What caught my attention was that the cubist style reminded me alot of Windwaker's intro sequence and that the primary, hyper saturated color choices that were used gives this irisdescent, neon appearance I haven't seen anywhere else. It's these color and design choices I'm hopin' to steal someday, so please don't tell anyone, it's a secret to everybody. :o

By figuring out what it is you like about something, the easier it is to attempt coordinating it into your style.

np! The gangly character proportions and varying body types of your more recent thin-lined art reminded me of Scott Campbell's work for Double Fine, but the way the limbs bend have a softer, rubbery feel to them, elava, which leaves more room variance in the lines of action.

You give many of the characters a lined pattern for their clothing that adds complexity, this illusion of volume in how those patterns warp and bend as the characters pose.

np, RR! I enjoy how you draw clothing to enforce the line of movement for the characters; it works as a framing device and adds to the flow that accentuates the figure's gracefulness. The way you color the three-dimensional planes for them gives an Impressionistic vibe in the way light is bounced by using background colors as a palette.

Even if I squint, the color values make it easy to distinguish foreground and background elements in the design. If brushstrokes were currency, I feel there'd be no money wasted in your gallery.

This is such a good verbalization of my internal mental representation; I've never put it into words, but wow, that really is what I think about when I'm drawing these things.

Keep your eyes on me! I'll continue to improve the value of my works!
