The Man from E.G.G.

A place to put my time-wasting doodles, based upon the exercises outlined in the "How To Draw Animated Cartoons" book by Preston Blair.

Goose Eggs and John K Speaks

OK, I used the silhouette & sausage drawings from yesterday's session as a guide and produced the drawing on the left. I like it enough to start obsessing on how the clothes are hanging and other such minooshaw. I have quite a ways to go, yet...

One of my daughter's daily activities is to "draw with pencil and paper!" So, while she's sitting on the kitchen table, we'll get out said pencils and paper and have a doodle session. Here's the stuff I drew for her last night:

Nothing to write home about, but, gosh, isn't it fun to draw sometimes?

EDIT: Hey, gang! I just stumbled onto John K's blog this morning and this quote leaped out at me:

"I think its great that there are so many blogs now that feature all kinds of previously obscure animators and I encourage every young cartoonist to go and not only look at the stuff you like, but copy it, analyze it and put it into practice! Be merciless in your self criticism. When you first start to copy this stuff it should be obvious how inferior your copies are. If you don't see that, give up instantly. But if you see that you have a long way to go, then keep going! The more you copy and criticize, the faster you will learn and improve."

I guess I should feel good about feeling bad about my scribbles! HUZZAH!

See you on Monday!

Are you feeling that it's time to get gaming? Do you have snacks, friends and a new game at the ready? Have you connected to your worthy opponents online? Stop now! Read the following article first so you can learn how to get all you can from your gaming experience.

Buying the best xbox for your gaming preferences can be touch. Think about what you like in a gaming system and find the system that best suits your needs. Research the gaming systems on the Internet. Check out reviews from other gamers, too. Before purchasing a console, educate yourself.

It is important to understand the game rating system. Understanding this system allows you to better control what your child is exposed to. Before investing money into any game for a young person, check the ratings for appropriate age groups.

Before you allow your children to play a video game, ensure you know its rating. Some games have violent content and are meant for people that are over 18. Violence can give your children the wrong values, which may show later in life. Try to refrain from online games that promote violence for your children's sake.

Be cautious of online gaming. Sometimes you must pay a monthly fee for access. If your kids want to join a site that many of their friends are using, make sure that you take a look at it first. Evaluate the advantages of the games you find against the monthly fees that are charged.

Think about stopping by online gaming arcades in other locations. Many people now enjoy playing online gaming at their homes by themselves. If you go out of town to an arcade, you can enjoy your games along with some human interaction.

Update your graphic drivers. If you do a lot of your gaming on your computer, you probably will want to have as clear a picture as possible. This is why you need the current graphic drivers. You can venture on over to the device manager section on your computer and see your latest graphic driver, then head to manufacturer's site to see if any new updates became available.

It's best to try out a game alone first. There is no point playing a game online if you are having trouble playing the traditional version! If the game is too hard, trade it and get something you prefer. It is time to find a new game if you are getting frustrated and do not have fun anymore.

You should make sure you seek nourishment when playing your online gaming. Video Games can get someone away from reality, even to the point where they are forgetting to take care of their basic needs. When you are playing online games, remember to drink a lot of water because dehydration can make you ill.

Try playing video games as a way to bond with your children. Gaming together is a fun and inexpensive way to get in some family time. It can also allow you to ensure that your kids aren't playing inappropriate games.

Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

Online Games were there in the past, they're here in the present, and they will be there in the future. It is unbelievable to see their evolution. It is astounding to think of what the future may hold. So much fun to thing about it and imagine all the possibilities of future games.
