Guilt tripping

Why does family ask you if you’re interested in attending something, and after you (under no uncertain terms) tell them that you are NOT interested, do they then guilt trip you to an insane degree for your choice?  Was it really my choice to begin with, or was this a courtesy call to let me know the choice has already been made for me?

I played some Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor last night.  Took on 2 orc captains at once.  This is a MANS GAME!  LOL!

I’ve decided to have a go at this whole “Inktober” thing.   Bought some fancy brush-pens and gave them a go in my sketchbook.  I’ve never tried one of these before so I really have no idea how to use them, but here’s my first 3 attempts immediately after getting the 2 pens I bought out of their packages.   Mmmmmm..  Fresh meat..

Bit of a cool-down drawing.  Fall is my personal favourite time of year.  I also wanted an excuse to mess around more with the advanced filters in Toon Boom Harmony 11.Drawn entirely in vectors in Toon BOOM Harmony 11, with some mixed in textures for the BG.  Using a WACOM Cintiq Companion slate PC.

I’ve animated a new avatar for myself in Toon BOOM Harmony.  Some of you got a sneak peek at this in my Ustream live animation sessions.Drawn and animated LIVE on my UStream channel using Toon BOOM Harmony 11, on a WACOM Cintiq Companion slate PC.

emokidpro said: I check out your toon boom arm demo. Can you do a tutorial on animating the TDI arm style?

I CAN do this.  I get a lot of requests like this on quite a regular basis, although none of them ever ask nicely.  Pretty much every request for tutorials that I receive comes off more like a demand than a request.  So I haven’t really had much incentive.
