yay i drew more stuff.
haven't been drawing quite as much the last few days/weeks just because there's so much free food this time of year, i.e. yellow dock, elderberries, blackberries, hickory nuts, walnuts, beechnuts and burdockkkkkk yum how i love thee. made some kinpira gobo for dinner yesterday OMG SO GOOD. but my hands...my hands are stained black from walnut shells, and my fingers look necrotic and I get weird looks from people when I go out in public, because wearing gloves is for SISSIES.

oh my god these two are so cute i can't help myself. and I will be drawing the hell out of them until the internet is flooded with marker and oscar forever and always
THIS DRAWING IS A PAIN IN THE ASS...actually miharu was easy. I drew her in like 10 minutes. but KAI! DAMN YOU KAI FIRST I DRAW YOU SITTING NEXT TO HER, BUT IT LOOKED DUMB. THEN I DREW YOU BACK TO BACK WITH HER AND IT LOOKED DUMB. FINALLY SETTLED ON DRAWING YOU SITTING NEXT TO HER AND GOT YOUR LEGS AND FACE AND HAIR AN EVERYTHING ALRIGHT BUT I CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT THE HELL TO DO WITH YOUR ARMS AND EVERYTIME I ATTEMPT AT YOUR FEET THEY COME OUT WONKY...
i need some good reference
anyway, my goal of finally getting caught up on UC gundam up to CCA this summer has finally realised itself
I still have the 0080 and 0083 OVAs recorded off of Adult Swim ON VHS TAPES FROM 2002 somewhere down in my basement, which I really would have enjoyed watching those for nostalgia's sake, but then again....youtube, so why bother. I never watched 0080 through to the end in 8th grade, but oh my god. i cried uncontrollably like a baby for the next 3 days. the openeing song still makes my eyes water. it really got me because of how personal it was, but also because 80% of the screentime was devoted to the characters, daily life in the space colonies, and how the war was affecting civillians, which interests me a hell of a lot more than mobile suits do (even though the Hygogg was sweet as hell).
I have to admit thoguh that CCA was a bit of a let down for me. Quess paraya aside, it felt like the story started in the middle, i would have liked some more build up about how char survived at the end of zeta, and how he started his neo zeon movement, and generally just more set up and exposition would have been nice. if I hadn't been a gundam fan prior to seeing it (especially if i had *paid* for tickets or a DVD) i certainly would have wanted my money back. i think what I enjoyed most about CCA was cameron bloom showing up again. I never liked him, but I love all obscure characters on principle, so it made me smile. plus the sheer irony of all the characters they could have brought back, they chose him? happy times
oh yeah and Astonaige gets a love interest...but *sniff* we won't speak more on the issue
aaaaaand I started watching unicorn. I'm really liking how the events of ZZ are still important here. although something about the animation doesn't sit well with me. maybe it comes from watching old 70's and 80's anime all summer and not being used to the newer style, but its almost too clean and perfect. the mechanical stuff is too blatantly CG for my tastes, and some of the camera movements were too fast and awkard, but that's just my film electives barfing up on this journal. which brings me to another point, I reeeeeaaallyy hope they don't animate the origin that way. if they could make the animation look like it did in the cutscenes to the gundam videogames, I'd be happy, so that people and mechs and colonies and ships are all uniform in style and look like they belong in the same frame. but something in the pit of my stomach tells me that they're going to CG the fuck out of it for profitability :C
anyways, animation critique aside, Unicorn gets a thumbs up from me, yay!
