[quote="Kazu"]Digital is good mainly for one thing: speed. With a large graphic novel, it becomes inefficient and much less forgiving to color naturally. Digital allows me to experiment on the fly, move faster (no drying time), and no clean up is necessary. I do all my linework on paper (I don't enj...

There's a book called "Writing Comics" that was written by Denny O'Neil who wrote and edited Batman for years. He gives examples and shows pages of scripts.

It's been very usefull to me as an aspiring screenwriter to see how a story like that is brought to life.

COD and HALO ruined other FPS's for me...

COD, all of them, and HALO, all of them, ruined every FPS I've ever played since. And I mean that in the very best of ways. It even ruined Half Life for me. (Don't hate me, it's just a taste thing.) I was a Medal of Honor fan. Allied Assault got me into FPS and back into PC games for that matter. I ...

I was curious about the locations when you go out to those maps between levels. In the middle east levels, when you play as SGT. Paul Jackson, you invade the Iraqi coast, the Kuwati coast is further west. The nuke goes off shortly above that in southern Iraq or southern Iran, maybe on the border. Yo...

Reagan Lodge: Wyit origins...

I have to say that, other than Rex, he's my favorite indvidual character. He's smart, funny, and he's got a good soul.

How did you start this character and story? Do you have bigger plans for him? Please say, "Yes!"

fantastic question

Great question.

Since I work in a kitchen, the worst ideas I've ever had were the ones that led to all the scars and burn marks on my hands and arms.

NOVO Restaurant and Lounge

http://www.novorestaurant.com I am a little biased about this place, I work there :), but if we've gotten two "Best Restaurant Period" awards from our local entertainment rag's ( http://www.newtimesslo.com ) readers in a row as well as five other awards both this year and last year, maybe I'm not so...

Re: Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

[quote="mestioko"]I must say this is my all-time favorite sci-fi novel. Ender's Shadow is wonderful as well (Bean rocks). Would've loved to see EG made into a movie, but how do you get a bunch of kid actors to talk like super-intelligent adults? I think Haley Joel Osment could've play Ender (right a...

Mouse Guard, 1172

I might be getting the number wrong, but this is an amazing series. What I liked about it was that the mice were put into their own world, a world of snakes and other predators. It reads like an amazing medeval story, and the art is breathtaking!

Wait...

I first found about a about Tom Waites through Robin Williams. In his 1986, Live at the Met show he said, "Tom Waits once said, 'You know, maybe there's no devil. It's just God when he drinks.' Well if God drinks you think he might get stoned! Look at a platapus, I think so." A friend of mine introd...

Gonzo: The Life and Work of Hunter S. Thompson

Saw this at the local independent theater: http://www.thepalmtheatre.com and was completely blown away. I was a fan of Hunter's work before but this just added to it. With the editing, Johnny Depp's reading of Hunter's work, and the recollections of his friends and colleagues, it was the best doc I'...
