Creative Common / Possible Forum Sketch Comp…?
« Last post by Jim_Campbell on Today at 09:53:13 AM »
Per my inappropriate musings over on the film thread, here's an actual thread to test the water on a new art comp for the forum.

To reiterate my reasoning for a 'Sketch Competition' from the original post, for those who missed it:

Two reasons for the "Sketch" thing — 1) I don't want to steal any of the official comp's thunder, and 2) with the old forum comps, the long deadline ended up with perfect being the enemy of, well, finishing anything for a lot of people… so I wondered if there'd be any interest in an informal competition with a short deadline and a time limit on the actual work so people (well, me, for a start) wouldn't perpetually blow the deadline.

My thoughts so far are: maybe do one a month, based around a theme or character as always — people have a week to post their entries, followed by a week of voting, but the entries have to be completed within a time limit. Multiple entries are allowed, if you warm to the theme, but you can only spend X amount of time on each drawing.

So the first big question is: how long would be a good maximum time limit? You don't have to spend the full amount of time on it, and there will be a certain amount of good faith required from the participants — I'm going back and forth between 30min and an hour, but I have a little voice in the back of my head that says "No — make it fifteen minutes!"

If we can't come to a consensus, I'll probably split the difference at 30min, but if a clear preference emerges then we'll do that instead. There'll probably be a few odd details to thrash out on top of that, but this will give us a good starting point.

The floor is yours!

That’s cracking Pictsy
Ewins, because Bad Company.

D'Israeli- for Leviathan, Scarlet Traces and for challenging my eyes with his elaborate recent work on Stickleback.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off
I'm running out of ideas for films to watch.  I don't really know what I'm in the mood for.  That usually means something light, dumb, but fun and entertaining... and that I haven't watched within the last year.  Or science fiction.  I may have to do some research.  I'm tempted to rewatched Hardcore Henry soon.  Only seen it once before.

Some recent(ish) Hidden(ish) Gems I'd recommend:

Dolemite is My Name
Cop Car
American Animals
Anna & the Apocalypse
The Kid Who Would Be King

I'd also recommend the new HBO documentary about Tiger Woods. I couldn't care less about golf, but I found it riveting.

Cop Car an underrated gem of a movie, with a great performance from the two kids, and a wonderful, malevolent Kevin Bacon.

Whoever caught this, and thought that the Director would be perfect for Spider-man should be applauded.

Deplatforming doesn't work, they said.

Be great if a few other serious arseholes could receive the same treatment.

At this stage, Trump is apparently floating the idea of starting his own party, purely for the grift, and the thought that he would decimate the Republican membership is hilarious. Everything Trump touches Dies.
