  1. Ever hear of chindogu? It's what the Japanese call stuff similar to this. The idea is that you make things that seem useful, but are actually highly impractical. An example is a toilet paper roll strapped to a helmet, so you always have access to tissues during hay fever season. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chind%C5%8Dgu
  2. While I would get a lot of practical things, I think the first really goofy things that I would splurge on would be a 3 story tall inflatable Godzilla with a slide down the back. I will also settle for a T-Rex.
  3. I've been listening to a while bunch of swinghouse lately. It's swing music mixed with electro and substeb. It's pretty amazing.
  4. Deliberate viral marketing, popups, data mining, what's to like? A shorter answer would be what I like about it, which is not much. The only real benefit I get from it are the websites that benefit from the revenue.
  5. i would say the focus on the work is more influenced by your surroundings and the person who is doing the work, not necessarily the tools someone is using for it. I suppose that the tablet might help in some regard, but I don't think that it would affect productivity all that much.
  6. I didn't get any consoles as a kid, so any time I could get my hands on a controller, I did. I think I preffered the sega system overall, but liked the NES games more.
  7. I haven't played the series, what's it like?
  8. "The only thing that bothers me is the voice is too high for my taste. It sounds like a 12 year old speaking into the mic. I would wish the voice to be more soothing or something." Yeah, that's true. From what I gathered of the show, he does just the vocal work, and doesn't write stuff for it. (or, at least, he isn't the head writer.) I wonder what other roles he plays.
  9. I love the Irresponsible Captain Taylor series. It's a little older, but the anime is hilarious, the characters are great, and even the background people have their own personality and story.
  10. Have you ever done any challenges on DA? Stuff like, draw one thing from this list, every day, for 30 days. These are great, because they get you creating, and it really pounds some experience under your belt. I did one challenge last year, and my art skills skyrocketed.
  11. Personally, I love the series Extra Credits. It's not the most comedy oriented series, but it's really educational and interesting. If anyone has any interests in game mechanics and design, or you are entertained by colorful pictures flashing on the screen, you should really check it out. http://www.penny-arcade.com/patv/show/extra-credits
  12. Hey everyone! I'm more of a simple traditional artist, but eventually I would like to own and run my own website, perhaps even a webcomic. Hopefully I will be able to learn a few things by talking to you all here. Thanks in advance for all the help!
  13. I've found that the best way to learn is simply to experiment. Every tutorial I have seen has said this. Though, whenever I am trying to do something specific, I do a search for it. Deviantart and Reddit have been very useful for this.
  14. I've always been a more traditional artist, but I've been teaching myself how to use GIMP. It's open source and free, so it was within my budget. So far it seems to be fairly comparable to Photoshop. I'm sure there are major differences for people who are better trained and more professional than I am, but for just starting out, it's not bad, right?
