    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    Playing Hard - a documentary following the making of For Hono(u)r. I went in expecting an Ubisoft puff piece and it’s not that by any stretch of the imagination. I think it’s the most honest document of the journey £ stresses of making a large game, and while I’ve been out of AAA game dev & the biggest teams I worked on were only a couple of hundred people so much of this rings true to me. It focusses on the men at the top, mainly the creative director. I had to turn on subtitles because half of it is in French & there weren’t any.

    The Lion King (Live Action)

    As I understand it calling it live action is because animation directors don’t get any residuals. But Disney want Jon Favreau and he’ll want royalties, so despite not a single element of it existing outside a computer they’ll call it live action. I mean what’s the alternative? They start paying their animation directors royalties... not on Iger’s watch.

    Formula One - 2019 Season

    You’re right, my bad (memory). But do you know if he was talking to anyone else or if it was Ferrari all the way?

    Formula One - 2019 Season

    Honda put way more money into the Brawn car than Ross did. Also where else was Schumacher going to go when he moved teams? Obviously going with Brawn to Ferrari was the smart move in the long run, but also comfortable as he was still working with the man behind his championship winning car. But where else was there? Benetton was done, that seemed to be know. Williams never seemed keen on paying their drivers much, would McLaren have taken him - does anyone know if he spoke to the other top teams at the time?

    The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    One thing I found really helped when starting with the airbrush was to do some simple exercises on a piece of paper like draw a line, shade or fill a circle, write you name. And repeat them a few times. It gets you used to controlling the flow of air & paint, gets the eye in with the spread. Basically you learn how the airbrush behaves so it becomes predictable to use. This is all just me passing on someone else’s advice but I found it helped me a lot. I’m not expert that’s for sure, I mainly just use the airbrush for priming and the occasionally base coat. I did do the anonymous bust with the airbrush (all except the eyes, teeth, black lining the hair, and that damn shadow at the base of the neck I’m still not happy with) and was confident enough to try and do the highlights under the eyebrows and cheekbones. It’s not prefect by any shot, you can see around the chin where I used too much pressure and it bled over from under the chin, but it was good fun.
