The Trippy Columbia Logo Art in “Spider-Man Into The Spiderverse”
Say what you will about Disenchantment, but its theme kicks ass.

Mastodon artists who are better than me (read: literally everybody else here): I think I can trust your judgement, and I need help. I've been drawing my webcomic on a three year old Wacom Intuos Pen and Touch Tablet, and since I'm actually becoming more serious about my comics, I want to upgrade. So I ask of you: what tablets better than the Intuos but under like $450 do you guys recommend?
Choose your team!
When it comes to high definition 80's #anime, would you go for noise or noiseless image?

It's almost 2019, which will bring the first new batch of US public domain works in over 20 years:
This "public domain day" used to happen every year until 1998, when 20 years was added to copyright terms for no real reason other than that large companies like Disney wanted it.
Copyright currently lasts 95 years in most countries, but until the late 1970s it was 56 years, or even shorter if copyright wasn't actively renewed.
I have watched 'Despicable Me' multiple times over the past few days.

Yowp: How Hoyt Curtin Made Music
I'll do a proper #introduction after Christmas with some art, but for now I'll just say a short hello.
I'm all about animation. I'm a big fan, and I also create shows, draw, do short animation and write for fun. I'm a storyboard artist for commercials, with my ultimate goal to board for animated series.
I'm here to make friends, talk animation, learn, teach, inspire, and be inspired. Excited to be here! 😆
My wife 3D-printed a Totoro to go in my toddler daughter's stocking, and I'm painting it.
Remember that Treehouse of Horror Simpsons episode where Homer goes 3D and we all went "Whoa, things have to change dramatically when you go from 2D to 3D or stuff ends up looking REALLY WEIRD?"

Spider-Verse / Audience rant
OK I know I'm talking a lot about the film but I just saw that it's not doing so hot
About ten times worse than the generic ASM2 and Homecoming in the UK
I really hope studios don't take the wrong message from it and will still try to develop more creative looks for animated films, the standard sanitised look is so tired by now. This is one of the best things to happen to mainstream animation in so long, and it seems to be getting ignored 😑
