How about yes!?




“Life is just a series of peaks and troughs. And you don’t know whether you’re in a trough until you’re climbing out, or on a peak until you’re coming down. And that’s it you know, you never know what’s round the corner. But it’s all good. ‘If you want the rainbow, you’ve gotta put up with the rain.’ Do you know which philosopher said that?... Dolly Parton... And people say she’s just a big pair of tits.”

by the way, post some of your life drawing, im sure its awesome

Kristian said...

his life drawing is BIG!. I know i'm there in awe. Dude what about posting some of those flash loose animations you are doing. I really wanna see em on here. you could post them in stages.

Maarten Rijs said...

yeah twice a week is nice but at least you get to draw men too haha. i need to find myself a different place.
yeah animating... the thing is, life drawing is going pretty sweet but I really disgust my normal drawing, every time i have produced crap like that i feel really depressed, so i havent really done any normal drawing lately. I guess im waiting until im better.
i think about it all the time though... movement, acting.. etc.

but according to kristian you ARE doing animation. post it man I really wanna see it!
and you still gotta send me that short :)

Cheers everyone for the comments. It’s cool how we've built up this community and we chat and talk via the comments that we leave.


yeaaaaah, the animations I’m doing...urm...well...the thing is...urm...i've not been doing any.

maarten what kristian is talking about is i'm supposed to be doing a load of animations in flash so that i could add some new stuff for my reel, but i've not been doing any due to the fact that i said Lydia (my girlfriend) could use my laptop to do her dissertation. i bought a laptop for my line tester but i've been using it to do my other bits and bobs on it. this is due to personal issues I have which is making me stay away from my home, so i've been staying with Lydia and my light box stuff is at my home.

However, I got some work on a music video which is drawn animation (yeay!) and lyd’s gonna be done with her degree on Tuesday (yeay! again) so she said i could bring my light box over to her home and set up my light box on her desk (coz she wont need the space anymore) and a line tester in her room so i can work from there (double yeay! Infact…can i get a fucking hell yeah!). it’s kind of a very long winded answer, but it’s why I haven’t been doing very much animation and why I now can’t do the new flash animations until after the music video is done, coz when lyd’s done with the laptop I’ll be starting to animate on the video.

Mel I’m glad you liked it, even thought you didn’t understand :) I can shed some light for you. I’ve been going thought a bad patch in a multitude of aspects in my life at the moment, and though it’s nothing as bad as what some people are going through in the world at the moment, it’s left me feeling pretty down in the dumps, so this is just an image that while a bit silly, represented the feeling I had that particular day it was created. it’s a disillusioned me, being encourage by an unrealistic me, the design of which is based on a character called the “how about no man” that me and my pal used to draw in college that nearly got me kick out, but that’s another story.

Hey Tim. Thanks for the kind words man. Your stuff looks great. I really like your figure drawings here. Keep up the confident line work on them!

Yo Weaz, you have totally captured your attitude on that couch...so relaxed! It is so you man. The colouring is dope too, the clothes and couch your sitting on looks/feels realistic. The colours are electric too, the feather in that pimp ras'clat's hat is a nice touch haha.

Dude by the way what does this picture mean? You know I can't help deceiphering hidden messages, to me this is what limbo looks like? Its so surreall, Twin Peaks ain't got nothing on you.
