You are not alone!111111 My drawings slant so much it's not even remotely fun! Goddamnit. Sadness. Drawing things like faces from the front is more or less impossible for me, it just seems to be embedded in my pen/cil strokes or something! It's horrible.

Anyone seen the new trailer for Brutal Legend? It's Tim Schaefer's(DOTT, Full Throttle, Psychonauts, and more) new game and it looks pretty hilarious. I'm not a big fan of Jack Black or Heavy Metal so I wasn't sure what to think of this, but the new trailer won me over. I had a look through a gameplay video, and although it looks a bit underwhelming, I've found I can count on the story/humour/characters of a Tim Schaefer game to carry me through any lackluster gameplay issues. Hopefully it ends up on Steam at some point at a similar price point as Psychonauts.

flixel, AdamAtomic's actionscript library has been released, along with a new game Mode.

My highscore is 6050. It beat me down bad.
thanks Dogmeat!

I slant alllll the time.  Actually, what I usually do (which is probably bad) is I unconsciously tilt my drawing surface so it straightens out.  Also I have a crooked personality  ;D :D :-X
lol @ jjnaas and helm.  That would be a good activity.  And JJNaas' av was bugging me, I like helms edit.  And I like teh noms.

I tilt more than I slant.  When the page is rotated counter-clockwise (about 5-10 degrees usually), things are generally in OK proportion.  It's a similar problem though and hell when working in a frame...

in my sketchbook things like buildings and characters (anything which needs to hit the ground solid) almost always have a cross added after the initial sketching that shows the drawing's orientation (usually like i said a few degrees behind the page).

Awesome  ;D
I hope it is as good as it used to be.
The movies were fine, but I guess the format wasn't the best for Futurama.

Yeah, the movies weren't quite as good as the show, I think it mainly came down to the format, but it seemed like they were testing the market and I have no problem supporting them.

Hopefully this time the show sticks.
