Studies for The Wave
Carlos Schwabe was a German symbolist painter. After becoming active in symbolist circles, he soon became famous as an illustrator of mystical religious themes. He created powerful paintings through symbols that were not just familiar emblems of mainstream iconography, but rather intensely personal, obscure and ambiguous references.
The studies represent screaming women’s faces. The slightly disturbing images testify to the exceptional graphic gifts of Schwabe.
I’ll post The Wave itself next, stay tuned!
I love the Lego Movie so much, and I connected with Unikitty’s thinly-veiled anger issues on a spiritual level, so I figured I’d make an animation out of the (clearly) most important character.
i can’t open the door until i talk to the beetle and i can’t talk to the beetle until ?????????
then when i’m inside trying to use the door until i’ve lit up all the panels gives me a message of “you need to solve the puzzle” and then when i HAVE lit up all the puzzles clicking on the door ceases to do anything
leaving and reentering doesn’t help
should i just skip this game and continue on to the rest of the adventure
Try clicking on the beetle, then clicking the descriptive text that pops up to make it go away and it should just automatically go away. As for the light up puzzle if you can make all sixteen match and it won’t open try going out and then back in, and match a few more the way I understand the program works it’s just counting matches, not which ones are done and which aren’t so if you get enough it should just open the door automatically. I’m trying to get a Youtube playthrough up soon, I’m sorry.
??? there are so many ways to render this game unplayable
Fuck that sucks, how can I help
After a brief amount of time spent trying to catch up on the reading list, I’m excited to announce our next featured adventure is All Night Laundry, by author Jack-Fractal. All Night Laundry is something of a dark horse adventure; at a little under a year old and Fractal’s first story, it…
For real though folks, read this shit I can’t believe how quickly it shot up into the ranks of my top favorite adventures like damn.
And at last, the best panel of the game that nobody ever saw. This was painted a few weeks ago, and I was realizing at the time that I had still failed to really show the scope of the huge glass structure - so I put my head down and said “I’m gonna do this. I’m gonna make it happen”. So I drew this, was very proud, and then put it in the game and realized literally nobody knew you could scroll around to see the rest of the city and just stayed in the little area where the fig is. We added some animated dust to try and draw the eye upward, but just between you and me I DON’T THINK IT WORKED.
Also this fig originally was going to sell you a bunch of a junk but when the inventory system died so did that idea. Now she just sort of idly considers jumping off that cliff edge while being a downer. COMEDY GOLD.
Happy Almost New Years! Now to wait for Cambodian New Years in… April…
Now please excuse me for the rest of eternity while I play starbound……
Is anyone else sick of hourglasses yet?
In the original game there were multiple ways of going to LEGO JAIL - and touching this hourglass was one of them. Because Lego people take breaking glass reeeaally seriously. The Storm figs, which is a moniker I just made up but will now be their official name, are kind of fatalistic and maybe even a little nihilistic. They know they’re gonna die, and they know it probably will be pretty fast. Everything around them will crumble, their civilization will disappear, and emptiness abounds. That’s why it’s funny this guy is so upbeat about how futile life is. Do you get it? Eh?
It was funnier in my head
lephenixnoir asked: Where did you learn to draw glass/metal like this btw?
Well, it didn’t hurt basically spending all my time looking at glass and redrawing my panels over and over this last couple of months for this game. I think the cool thing is that if you look at the drawings for the game you can actually get a pretty coherent timeline of my glass drawing abilities - from absolute shit in the first couple panels to something that I almost am okay with on the very last one.
statesofmatter asked: word on the street is you have a cosmically gigantic wiener
I don’t know where you got that information. It’s highly classified.
lephenixnoir asked: From the start your art style is quite good, and I like your writing. So far the main obstable on my bzpstuck reading are.. pesterlogs. But I'm trying.
Yeah, the first few are rough. We try to make them funnier and more engaging as we go on, and sometimes we even succeed! I won’t tell if you skip a few it’s ok.
