"... dad?"

"Eh? Do I know you?"

"Er, no, I guess, uh, not. Wow, that's... hi. I'm Tony Stark, nice to meet you."

"Ryo Sato. Likewise."

This is the sort of scene that belongs in the middle of a team effort to repair something fairly large and important. By "fairly," I mean, "more important than a car, less important than the World-Engine."

INT. NIGHT - ASAMI'S OFFICE

(ASAMI sits at her desk, next to the giant model of the SATO EXPO grounds. She's visibly tired and annoyed, possibly because it's taken all night to film this stupid promo reel for the Expo. She takes a sip from a highball glass, puts it down, sighs, and turns wearily to the camera.)

ASAMI
And so from all of us here at Future Industries, I would like to personally show you...

(She hesitates.)

... my ass.

(She rises from her chair and begins to do just that.)

KORRA
(off camera)
Woooo! Work it, girl!

(The film cuts off with a couple of lab processing frames and begins to flap on the projector's uptake reel.)

Much of the work of the past four or so months has made me chortle, or chuckle, or go "Heh, that's clever" in many places.

This little thing had me laughing out loud for awhile. Oh, mercy me.

(Also, in my head, because nobody can stop me there, there were EXTREMELY sexy results following the existence failure of the film reel.)

Daaaaaaang.

That thread was depressing. And hilarious. Both at the same time! Is there a word for that? It seems like the Germans would have come up with a word for that. Do you just... keep that link around? Use it when you need a good laugh?

I have only one thing to say, in response to the Ben who existed eleven years ago saying this:

>I find I don't have much patience for Serious Literary Types,

Well, uh, you've had a lot of patience with me, and despite my primary field of endeavor being tech-related, I have an honest-to-god English degree.

But fifteen or so years ago you'd have been unfortunate enough to encounter members of the Academy who were coming down from a SERIOUS bender on post-modernism and being real assholes about it; that particular school of thought produced one useful tool (deconstruction) and then wandered off into the hills to howl at the moon. Jacques Derrida destroyed an entire generations ability to think objectively about things and took a real good swing at undermining the Enlightenment while he was doing it.

Anyway, in honor of that link, I'm going to go on tumblr and be amused by people arguing heatedly over whether the new red-haired girl in tonight's episode of Legend of Korra is white or not, and then imma go to bed. Cheers.

No, I had to go and dig it up again for the occasion. The "crypto-lesbian subtext" thing has become a studio injoke, though, and you wouldn't have had the context for it otherwise.

>(deconstruction)

Or as people used to call it, being a prick about the little shit. :)

Can't articulate why, exactly, but this is my favorite, of the pics so far in this thread.

For the record, I particularly love this piece. My favorite thing about it is their left arms.

Your art is amazing and I am extremely grateful that you take the time to draw these wonderful pictures into the Eyrie universe. Hat off to you sir!

I'm not an art critic so...

I like Corwin's face - first look at him with the beard and it does show more family resemblance to his dad.

Given the angle of the roof though, I can't help imagining that Korra's about to roll forwards and keep rolling until she goes off the edge. Maybe it just looks steeper than it really is.

It isn't quite as steep as it looks, and although it's hard to tell from this angle, the roof is also slightly concave (it ramps upward a little at the edge). Also, that might be part of the reason why Corwin's left arm is where it is. :)

Thank you, thank you *bows*. I have to say, the past few months have been revitalizing for my art. After about a year+ of not drawing anything at all, now I've done 7 drawings in a month and a half. I guess when inspiration finally hits, you've just gotta answer it.

... now I just need to -color- everything. blaaaah... -.-;

Very good for all of the above. In my mental image of characters, I keep forgetting that Corwin is sporting a beard now. Definitely starting to look more like his dad now.

This isn't mine (I have no drawing talent), but I found it surfing for something else and thought it would be perfect for this thread:
