Thanks for all the feedback last round guys, I appreciate it! :) I'm really happy that I'm not hitting the creepy factor with this rendition so far, it's been a lot of fun tackling his design.

Aaand we are back. Thanks to this great video of wrist exercises. I highly recommend checking it out if any one of you also have problems with this stupid curse. I tried it out for a couple of days, it helps! I blame long working hours and stupid deadlines; seriously, 14 revisions for one layout? OVER THIS SHIT.

On the subject of style copying from another artist: once or twice is flattering, any more after that it would be a courtesy to mention the original artist otherwise it starts becoming awkward for people who can see where the influence stemmed from.

Good going.

You know that briefest moment of panic you get when you reach for something in its usual spot and realise that it isn't where it's supposed to be, then you suddenly recall where you left it and then you feel like an idiot?

I put my wallet in a different pocket today and gave myself a panic attack. =A=

also, Hellboy book 9 "The Wild Hunt" is out! Picked it up yesterday, this volume focuses on Old English mythology. :DDD 
 I'm starting to really love Duncan Fegredo's work, he's really got the guts of Mignola's style down pat whilst merging it with his own more detailed way of drawing.

Did you know that FML has an illustration section?

Mar. 14th, 2010 | 03:26 pm

Me neither! O__o

I found out only after one of the people who run fmylife.com contacted me a couple weeks back to ask if I was interested in doing a picture for them.

My illustrated FML here.

Back to your usual programming! 8D

Thanks guys to all those who responded about the colour blindness test! My curiosity has been satisfied. XD There was a pretty wide range! I notice that the aqua ranges are the most troublesome for most people.
Also as many have pointed out, colour blindness and colour sense are two different things.

Test your colour vision

Mar. 10th, 2010 | 11:18 am

Aaaghh I hate colour vision tests because I fail so hard at them and feel like a freak afterwards.

Do it here:
The Munsell Hue Test

So this test has been making the rounds around the studio again, and everyone is pretty interested in it. A zero score means perfect colour vision. Most of my colleagues average a 7 or 8, with one person having a perfect score. I'm curious how everyone else scores at this!
