Added 1 new A* page:Last update in which I'll spam you with these--thanks to everyone who's tried one or both of A*'s new subscription and e-book features out so far this week! :)|
NASA's experimental Morpheus lander may have crashed and burned spectacularly a week ago, but NASA has just released footage showing a successful rather than catastrophic first untethered test of another experimental lander, the Mighty Eagle, which actually took place a few days before. It's a short and quite unspectacular test flight--or test hover, perhaps I should say--but that's probably exactly what they were hoping for:
Warmup sketch--mouth got away from me a bit:
And I probably should'a tried experimenting with the upcoming page layout a bit in the warmup, because my first tries at the actual page showed I had no idea of how to execute the thought I'd had in my head. I flailed around with it multiple times until for some reason one of the sketches twisted around like this
and I finally felt like I was onto something. Although after finishing the page and having some trouble with the final touch ups, I'm now finally convinced the tip of this latest Haboku brush is already toast--that'd be about thirteen pages it go through; it was going great, actually, but then there were two days in which it lost a bristle each day, and I guess those two bristles must have been fairly crucial tip bristles, because since then it just hasn't held a point at all. Sooo yeah these things are fun but not so well put together!
