its now 3:35am. tonights progress represents two movies, neither of which were good, catching up on the last few episodes of Parks & Rec, six or seven assorted other sitcoms, a take-out container of chicken fingers, three diet cokes, one joke song i wrote in a dogs voice, and a 30 minute break where i recounted to a houseguest the time my friend growing up told me his uncle was “a ninja for the army”.
im pretty deep into hatching now. theres a certain process order to all this that i constantly have to remind myself of my place in, due to the moderately complex depth-of-field situation going on here. the stalks are still quite rough, but once the whole thing is 80% ill go back in and really tighten all that up. the halo around the figures is still just a guide, its important to keep the figures silhouette really sharp in the end, so im going to do that last once all the crazy lines and stalks and leaves are 100% in place.
