Hey, thanks for the thoughtful comments, dudes! fwiw, it's straight-up drawn into sketchbook pro in black & white, and then the grey business is added in Photoshop. I have one really nice brush that does the mottled effect. I thought it would be faster that way, as opposed to doing it on paper. Gues...

"Raiders of the Lost Ark" Story Conference Transcr

From BoingBoing.net : Here's a leaked, 125-page transcript of the brainstorming session that begat Raiders of the Lost Arc, a sit-down in 1978 with Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and Lawrence Kasdan. Spielberg and Lucas veritably fizz with ideas. G — What can he chase them with? What if he jumps on...

Oh also, talking to a friend it turns out that the 3D in the theatre we went to might have been broken. Not sure if that's true or not, but maybe you'll have had a better 3D experience. Anyone know the technicalities of the method? I'm just guessing here: It feels like the film's projected at 24fps,...

Amy , re: the connection to the character - I had the exact same thing. Perhaps it's due to the missing elements that Kean mentions. I wanted more character from Coraline. I wanted her to feel uncertain and unsure when she's hiking out to the well, and I wanted there to be some sort of reaction fro...

*Sigh* I did not like it. Please do not throw your shoes at me. I have some thoughts as to why, but I'm not the best at articulating that sort of thing. I would say the film felt "flat" to me, and that it was missing some intangible elements that I don't know how to put my finger on. I am interested...

Lawrence of Illyham, Cooper

What's up, Flight dudes? Haven't been around a lot, but I finally took the time to do up a quick, fun comic. It fits into the Illyham community, which everyone should check out here . Enjoy! http://www.tonycliff.com/projects/loi/01/650px/LOI_01_p01_650.jpg http://www.tonycliff.com/projects/loi/01/65...

...Unless you'd like to be able to share the story with someone else without having to finish it first.

I'd recommend picking up Stephen King's On Writing . Makes interesting reading out of a dry topic. It's targeted at writing fiction novels, but the principles apply across the board. No magic bullets, though - the book can be distilled down to a "you just have to DO it" message. In a more eloquent m...
