Day 116: meh, I tried

Anime Talk / Re: Which Anime series you are watching ?
« Last post by Suuper-san on May 30, 2023, 04:36:42 PM »
Watched NausicaƤ of the Valley of the Wind for the first time in forever. I think I must have been either a little kid or only seen parts of it in passing because I thought I had seen it before but I didn't recognize any of it. (It's quite similar to Castle in the Sky so I might be crossing my memories perhaps)

I must admit objectively there are a lot of things to complain about such as pacing and dialogue, even the order of scenes etc (IMO), but really this was one of the first of its kind, the earliest film produced by Ghibli (before it even was Ghibli if my Google-fu is correct). So it doesn't sit right judging it by today's standards of writing that have been honed and adjusted with great trial and error over the decades, as well as the current culture of analysis, when it is one of the foundation stones of anime itself.

With that in mind I'm forced to give it a ??/10 because I'm unable to give it a rating I'm happy with. Definitely worth watching but ultimately felt like it was missing a core of sorts. I think there was too much world-building without much plot (such is Ghibli anyway), so I'm basically enjoying watching it but wondering what's going on for a good half of the film before it gets going. It's also super long at 2 hours runtime, partly because of the super slow story pace.

I would have loved to have watched this before watching anything else and see what my thoughts would have been. Had I been there watching it at the cinema when it was first aired I'm sure I would have felt a lot different. So a sort of bittersweet feeling that I never got to experience that.

I'm slowly working through all the Ghibli films at the moment so expect more posts as I watch each one :P

been a while since my usual daily sketch.
things seem to be sorting themselves out again
hands tho are causing me a lot of trouble, I seem to have either forgotten how to draw them or I'm suddenly noticing how badly I've been drawing them all this time.

Day 115:

Day 114: having a bit of a mid-life crisis apparently. but not really. but it feels kinda like that.
wasn't as productive as I'd hoped but tomorrow's another day.

Well I bet no-one was expecting this today :P

Finally finished Lego's request!!!
Alessa Sola, original request here

I thought I'd render this one in monochrome since I see it a lot and think it looks cool, but I've never done it myself can you believe it. So there you go. Also secretly it's practice for my upcoming manga style which might be similar.
A very big sorry for the delay, I have no excuse really XD

No idea when I'll do the next few but I'm in a productive mood at the moment. The style and composition will be whatever I randomly decide on in the moment, I'm blending my own style more into the pieces now. Maybe that's just because I'm more confident in having an actual style that I can work with.
So only 3 remaining now.

@operative thanks :D glad to hear you've been making progress and good to see you around.

Unfortunately I won't be posting today, I'm at hospital with a minor health problem. Already been here 4 hours and will probably be here in another 4 at the rate it's going. But hopefully tomorrow I'll be back in business :P
But annoying as I was being super productive today and the whole last week really.

Sometimes that productivity elsewhere is eating the time you would have for other things... as is my case at this time.  :push:

But, that's not to say there hasn't been any progress! I do have some backlog items getting cleared up these past two months, and with the long weekend following close by, I aim to make good on some updates I've been shoving off for far too long  :ninja: No promises, of course.

Glad to see you've been keeping your art up Suuper, even as things might be down elsewhere  :sure:
