Sometimes a theme isn't really necessary. Not sure if it's a fatigue of ideas, being stuck in a weird rut. Maybe just being worn out. Or it could be a time of reflection. A time of going back to the basics and the simple straight to the point times. 286 posts and 222 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
Flashing lights, big horns, and fanfare can make for an exciting time, but just being able to relax and enjoy the simple cup of your beverage of choice and being able to talk about whatever is on our minds.
So let's just all enjoy something warm or cold, and lend an ear to one another

Still feels jaded. They might actually be celebrating too but just so much pandering leaves me thinking the lowest common denominator

I kinda understand how you feel about it feeling flat. Honestly I can't see anything that immediately stands out I can suggest outside of maybe some light shading?

Hey Eshie, any thoughts on how to help?
The main two things I can think of here is resizing th eye closer to the screen. I know you are going for a 3/4 view and some foreshortening, so that eye being bigger is correct, but you've widened it quite a bit. It looks uneven.
Also, with characters this simple, adding too many detail lines on hair can be distracting. Notice they don't have them often on actual Ponies - simply shapes communicate better when the character is already simple.
Those would be my two main notes.

thank chu for he inputs and chat!
Excuse you, Gumball is great. Also I been binging it lately anyway
But yeah, we have a guest on our podcast soon, and I watched his first movie (we like to invite in anyone who has done ANY fantasy genre work at all here)
And it was the "Walking around for two minutes staring at walls with mildly spooky music on occasion is equal to tensioN" kind of horror ,with a little dash of terrible dialogue and sudden bursts of absurd violence that don't fit the mood it's going for.

I never said anything wrong about Gumball, I'm comparing it as an extreme. Having to get the big guns to get over the boredom
Haha oh that's going to make for a fun interview I'm sure

Yep, and it's a very nice courtesy to extend too.
Yep, having a lot of fun with it. Almost done with Season 2.
Getting past the slightly more awkward art style in Season 1 was a relief.

True, it did take a season to hit their stride with it. But all in all it's a blast.
Just a shame it ended without actually... ending
I mean don't get me wrong, Season 1 is still utterly hilarious. It just looks weird in a slightly less appealing way than the rest of the show.
I'm looking forward to getting to The Shell. I have a feeling I didn't quite appreciate that one the first time around
I wouldn't know, I don't think I ever actually full watched all of Season 6.
