  3. this is him. you can kinda see how he might have maybe been based on George W. Bush but he was generic enough that it didn't really matter. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875957

  4. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875932 spent part of today teaching myself cloth physics so that I could build a flagpole that eventually ended up looking like something out of the Family Guy video game. Always work to be done, I guess.

  5. the media is going to be in my home county a lot because for some reason both parties are still calling it a battleground. it doesn't take a genius to see that that's not true anymore http://rainbowdash.net/url/875931

  6. ...and i think the results are pretty good, it definitely flattens things out a lot, and i manage to get the program to generate new outlines on the fly based on an algorithm and where the camera is looking, just wish i could get it to tile along a random spot so that parallel lines don't look so uniform http://rainbowdash.net/url/875929

  7. a few months ago i realized that what the toon shader was REALLY missing was a way to accurately imitate a cheaply inked background that's been painted onto a cel by a Korean child, so i drew this 2160 x 2160 texture that i thought would maybe look like a scratchy black ink line, when tiled and repeated over a great distance... http://rainbowdash.net/url/875928

  11. here’s the thing about making a comic about anthros while being completely removed from the furry fandom: you don’t know if something you’re about to upload is gonna awaken something in someone. Like, this? I’m sure somebody’s into this. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875909

  13. My personal website hasn’t been properly updated in forever and that’s because maintaining the comic section was a chore, so I’m in the process of migrating that over to a new WordPress installation where it does mostly everything for me automatically. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875878

  14. @scribus Only tangentially related, but i was always a big fan of this video by Lyle Wrath & Chris O'Neill which basically subverts YouTube "savior" culture where wealthy YouTubers will make a huge deal about it when they donate to charity or whatever. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875874

  17. unrelated but pretty much all of the recurring CGI setpieces for Swole Foods are done now except the store's interior, which is unfinished purely because I'm bad at interior design and I'm planning to pay somebody to help me with that. The town itself also hasn't been laid out yet but it doesn't need to be for right now. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875863

  19. @scribus the California split movement confuses the hell out of me, because you got Los Angeles/San Diego in the south, San Francisco/Sacramento in the north, and a loooootta Biden counties in between... you would need to create a really weirdly shaped state to change any kind of electoral momentum over there. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875860

  24. first full piece on the new iPad was, of course, a comic. pretty rough but I'm just trying to break the thing in - and hey, I drew this *at work*! Technology is incredible. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875853

  28. cartoon crossovers before animation went fully digital were wild because, as the host show (in this case Lilo & Stitch), the burden was often on your animators to draw all these characters that you're not used to working with, and you couldn't (easily) reuse assets from the visiting show, so you get shots like this where everyone is terribly off-model http://rainbowdash.net/url/875846

  30. Sometimes I wonder if these mainstream journalists are self-aware of how out of touch they are. This article reads like a parody of itself. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875798
