I just heard a guy ask, “Can I order the ramen?”, to which the waitress replied, “Sure,” and I realized he was technically requesting the authority to make an almost military claim on the kitchen’s staff.
When did military “orders” overlap with or diverge from restaurant “orders”? Sounds so aristo.
#Inktober Day 31: This is it!
I'm no good at it, but I've learned a lot about digital art this month. I have a better understanding of the amazing capabilities of my #Wacom tablet and #Krita, including brushes, layers, and gradients. I see a path forward if I decide to put more time into art. I need so much time!
#Inktober Day 28: Fun with layers.
This looks simple but has 10 layers! Taking a cue from Studio Ghibli films I've been rewatching.
A professor at Hokkaido University was arrested in Beijing. He received an academic invitation from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences to give a talk and was then arrested in the hotel. It is believed that the academic invitation is part of the trap. https://www.hokkaido-np.co.jp/sp/article/357522/?fbclid=IwAR2f03v8K_lQEZtMxQ8x04UpNt54fsU6E_MGanmW4MgNLzdHuDOz4UfwR_4
#Inktober Day 27: Sen/Chihiro.
Trying to use more layers, but I merged mine too soon and can't get the right effect now. I'll try again later. The images in Spirited Away look so simple but are surprisingly sophisticated. Multiple layers of shadow, etc.
"The CD-ROM format is so incredibly unreliable that all of the layers of error corrections require 2.33 GB to encode 650 MB of usable data."

#Inktober Day 22: The wind it blows.
Had to cut this short today because my Debian Gnome / Wacom setup crashed about four times. Wish I could figure out why!

@anarchiv Absolutely agreed. I would add that a high-quality mouth guard from the drug store can do the job as well or better than something expensive from the dentist. Just make sure whatever you buy doesn't touch your gums.
