Mark Rappaport - The Vanity Tables of Douglas Sirk (2015)
> A video essay exploring the frequency and meaning of that particular prop in a wide variety of Sirk movies. Is it a device that traps and keeps women in an artificial world with a limited point of view? Or is it a gateway to the past and the future, and a distorted but nevertheless real vision of the roles that woman are forced to play in society? It's an exploration of the texts and subtexts of commercial films and the subterranean and complicated ways that they affect us and can be read.
adding to the only decent thread here to reply to OP with suggestions
>>6 >The Animator's Survival Guide Read this if you want to hate animating. Williams makes it very tedious and takes the fun out of it, and animation should be fun. Check out http://johnkcurriculum.blogspot.com/ instead.
>>58 Finished up today the storyboard for the first gondola animation, based on the song Danzai Shikkoku, posted on >>>/b/10310. The quality is very rough since it's for storyboarding purposes, not actual animation. Anyhow, for the temple grounds, I'm not sure if I should go for the bricks, or this gravel looking texture.
Please weight in on which one you think would be much more fitting for a shinto looking temple.
>>59 Well correction actualy, I finished up the storyboard for the first 2:00 minutes. Since I have to make sure I'm able to fit it all under the actual time limit. I also want to make sure that the action that goes on fits with the song's pace and mood.
been watching spergfox, got all of this. https://youtube.com/watch?v=TNdOHr80M98 [Embed] >>59 Something about the second one feels rather odd for what you are going for, i personally prefer the bricks godspeed, i sure love me some gondola goodness
>>31 >>32 And then we discussed information theory! By the time a signal get's to you, the event is in the past. The more complex the event, the longer the signal takes. Accounting for the complexity of global society, if you want to understand the present, you need to study the past. That being said, fauvism is way cooler than whatever the fuck the mona lisa is on about.
- Riven Phoenix [Not free, but cheap.] http://www.alienthink.com/figure-drawing/ He is not the best artist in the world, hell, he isn't good by a long shot. If you are a total beginner however, this is the absolute easiest way to get into drawing and breach the form over shape barrier. Just take each lesson, and draw along as he draws. Do at-least 1 video per day. Don't slack off, if you do, you won't see gains.
- Draw a Box [Free] http://drawabox.com/ You're going to find, as a beginner, that you probably suck with perspective and form. Here is some more hand-holding, and it is totally free.
- Drawing Tutorials Online [Paywall] http://drawingtutorialsonline.com/ You can learn everything you need too know for free, but it's a helluva lot easier with some professional critique. If you can afford $20 a month, this is probably one of the best $20 a month you can spend. Matt does feedback on Monday for submitted pieces, and there are a plethora of amazing video tutorials and live drawings here.
- Painting Tutorials Online [Paywall] http://www.painting-tutorials-online.com/ This is an off-shoot of DTO, and cost ~$9.99 a month. There is some great info on here, but your money is better spent on Drawing Tutorials Online.
- Timed Poses [Free] http://www.quickposes.com/gestures/timed I know you slack off on this. Stop slacking off on this. You need to be doing at least 20 quickposes a night. I do one set of 20 a night, with two sets of full body a week, one set of hands, and one set of faces a week.
This is 100% personal preference, and has little resemblance with classical methods. It's something I stumbled upon, and found I liked quite well. This palette lends nicely to realism since the colors are very much subdued. I will edit with a color-wheel sample at some point.
Brand - Winsor & Newton Winton Oil Color I love this brand, I've only picked up one 37ml tube where the oil was separated. It has a smooth texture, plays nicely with most mediums, IS CHEAP, and has wonderful coverage. I pay around $4-$8 per 37ml tube.
Note: Van Gogh is an option, but if you buy a large tube, be prepared to transfer it to another container (it bleeds like all hell). It also has poor coverage (less pigment) and about half the tubes I've opened had the oil separated. It's cheap though, it will get the job done.
https://www.youtube.com/user/FZDSCHOOL I fucking love this channel. The FZD school produces quality artists, but this channel is not for advertising the school. Rather, the owner himself is often providing amazing advice and answering questions. You should definitely be spending some time here.
https://www.youtube.com/user/DrawMixPaint Alright, so be careful with this guy. He definitely has an agenda to push his products and method. I don't agree with his method at all, as it is basically tracing and voids the student of understanding form. His color theory though is right on, and I fell in love with his palette color choice. Although I prefer Flake White over Titanium White.

Keep all critique request here. Do not create threads for critiques unless that thread is created for the purpose of discussing specific technique/genre. Before asking for a critique, ask yourself two questions.
1. "Is this the absolute best I can do?" If it's not, you are wasting everyone's time, and the critique will be worth very little to you.
2. "Do I want critique?" If you can't handle critique of all forms, you are wasting your time and everyone else's time.

> Banned by the Carpenter estate, Todd Haynes' experimental biopic Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story (which uses Barbie dolls to narrate the tragic life of the American singer) has become a cult hit because of both its controversy and its rarity.
