  1. Amazon Prime Video

    The Last Man on Earth is an excellent comedy, very original. Recommended!
  2. Gran Turismo Sport -Tuesday nights forum races

    Damn, still says no network connection for me.
  3. Gran Turismo Sport -Tuesday nights forum races

    Is the server back up again? Wasn't working earlier today when I tired,
  4. Gran Turismo Sport -Tuesday nights forum races

    Stuck down with the bad boys in SR E, don't mind, I embrace the chaos! Majority of the time trouble finds me, but what can you do, definitely been guilty of occasional late braking. Really enjoying the game, I think the variety in the daily races is great, in terms of variance in how long each event lasts. There's always a race suitable for however much free time I have. Would love to see special weekend races with something like a multi-lap Nordschleife.

    I guess it does boil down to whether or not iRacing does have a much more effective system in place with less anomalies. My suspicion is given the chaotic nature of racing, and the multitude of variables at play in any given situation that it would be very unlikely to assess each event correctly. I think the best that can be hoped for is a generally cleaner racing environment, and compared to my experience with Driveclub, Forza and Project Cars online, they've largely succeeded. Although it could also be a perspective thing, seems people are seeing the SR rating as some sort of campaign trajectory, an achievement to work towards, rather than a rough behavioural sorting system. The preciousness towards that progress would definitely contribute to stress levels.

    Worrying about the SR rating when there are so many variables that can affect it outside of one's control seems like a fool's errand. I just try to enjoy the race and let the chips fall as they may. Sometimes I get bumped down a level through no fault of my own, but sometimes I take a corner too quick, sideways ding another car and I deserve the SR deduction. Swings and roundabouts. Trying to take it seriously, like a real life race when there are no stewards to adjudicate, or physical consequences to crashing that would rein in the more lively participants just seems like a one way ticket to stress and frustration. It's just a game, and a cracking one at that.

    Have you considered using a pencil? You can a lot of varied line quality out of a 2b, the extra nuance would give an increased sense of volume to your patterns, might make up for the lack of that ink pen definition.

    Very nice! The increased variance in the thickness of outline in the first piece gives it a more rounded three dimensional topography, that's something maybe worth exploring further if it takes your fancy.
  9. 4K Blu Ray - anyone collecting?

    Problem is the HDR format issue isn't resolved. To my eyes, the Dolbyvision material on Netflix is superior to HDR10 and only a few expensive players support Dolbyvision right now. Will probably jump in when DV is more widely available and more classic movies are remastered for it. 4k isn't really a big deal either way, makes no real appreciable difference to the picture in most viewing contexts. (have 4k 65" tv)

    Ah cheers man, much appreciated! It's been great getting back into drawing. Working with the Apple Pencil is a real pleasure, I'm going to look into whether there's any software for the ipad pro that allows for a bigger canvas that I can scroll around so I can do larger, more complex studies. Will also look into maybe using a second larger brush, with a hard, maybe square edge for broad planar descriptive detailing on top.

    One more. Going to try and find an adjustable mirror and play around with self portrait work. Thinking about one of those three panel make up mirrors, be interesting to experiment with overlapping perspectives.

    Another couple of blind drawings, this time some hobbit style foot action

    Been playing around with the Apple Pencil, feels very natural to use, nice balance in the hand. A couple of blind drawing observation studies (not looking at the page, only the subject when mark-making)

    Yeah that's the other thing, really want turn off the music when racing!

    Aye, I've opened it before to put in the xbox sticks, and I remember that little spring making a break for it! It's such a relief to hear this, as it sounds exactly the issue. Same here, couldn't even do the first driving test, was pulling my hair out trying to figure how the hell I couldn't finish in time! Cheers man.
