d389 Drawing Troll Comic

[161220]

Well folks, it’s a couple years late, but this is, officially, the final Nonsense Wars post. J and I have reached the consensus that we will no longer be updating NW (if that wasn’t obvious already, but hey, now it’s official). All of the posts on the site will be archived at nonsensewars.wordpress.com, and the nonsense-wars.com URL will redirect there before the hosting runs out.

Going forward you can follow J at his Tumblr, and you can follow me on my DeviantART or visit my site, which is intended to be “a loose index of various content I have on the Internet as well as a casual dump of content that doesn’t belong elsewhere”. For various reasons I have moved/copied a handful of NW posts there as well.

Now, about the troll comic: in 2012 (yes, more than four years ago) we tried drawing silly 4komas on a super large sheet of paper, and this was the result. J never got around to posting it due to whatever. But then maybe it’s fitting for the last NW post: it’s a comic, it’s sloppy, and it’s late (but hey, better late than never, right?).

The super large sheet of paper is about 33″ x 27″, so it was difficult to get it into digital form. I think originally J was going to post it as a photo with mouseover areas such that you could see the text, but just this last weekend we tried to see if we could get something better. We tried taking a better photo, and ultimately decided to scan it in small chunks, since the bed of J’s scanner is only about A4. All in all it probably wasn’t worth it: the scans came out really inconsistently and you still can hardly make out the text. As such, I am putting a transcript beneath the comic.

Panel 1,1 (Col, Row):
J: Let’s draw a giant 4-panel comic!
D: Great idea!

Panel 1,2:
*Le drawing*
D: I thought this was the sadness?

Panel 1,3:
J: NOPE.AVI, it’s about drawing a 4-panel comic.
D: But what about the sadness?

Panel 1,4:
J: Can it.
*Shock*
D: This is not funny at all.

Panel 2,1:
*Drawing comics like a boss*
Fuck Yeah.
J: You know, you’ll be sad if that ink and water spill.

Panel 2,2:
J: Put this tray under the cup and ink to avoid sadness.
Trolololololollll
D: Okay
*Drip tray of sadness*

Panel 2,3:
J: Look out, impending sadness!

Panel 2,4:
J: I’m just going to move the sadness to the table.
D: Just shut up already.

So that’s the troll comic. But wait, there’s more! For the tenth anniversary of NW we made a small graphic of D drawing J and J drawing D. This of course didn’t get posted, as it was in September 2014 (we started in September 2014), already several months after my last post, but here it is as well:

And that’s a wrap. Til next time.

Weekend (mis)Adventures 2: RC Planes, part II

A couple weeks after our last adventure, D managed to tree his Gamma 370. However, it dawned on us that the entirety of the propulsion components of the 370 (Motor, ESC, and battery) were available from the local hobby shop. Given that the rest of the Gamma 370 was just some foam in the shape of an airplane, we decided it would be interesting to try to build a plane from “scratch”. Here’s what we had to work with:

Weekend (mis)Adventures 1: RC Planes

IT’S A POST BY J!!!!!!!

Ahem. Anyway, now that I’m back on the same side of the country as D, we try to get together every weekend to do something. At some point we figured we might as well document some of what we’re doing and put it on Nonsense Wars. That’s the entire point of having a blog/website right?

Step 1: Do stuff.
Step 2: Take photos of yourself doing stuff.
Step 3: Post photos of yourself doing stuff to internet. Maybe write about yourself doing stuff.
Step 4: Do more stuff.

Some of you might object that “??? […] Profit!” is missing. That’s not how the internet works for most people.

Anyway, on to Step 3!

I Wanna Rock

An actual incident that happened to me when we were cleaning up the lab. We found a whole bunch of “art objects” (sculptures or models/tiny reproductions thereof) and some rock slabs that had been used in a 3-D imaging project. We sent them to MIT’s mailing list for used stuff that’s up for grabs … and by the next day almost all the rocks were gone.

This comic almost got filed with the other Real-Life Random Acts of Stupidity, except that neither D nor I did anything stupid this time. Also, I debated having a “Completely Unamused” face for the last panel, until D pointed out that “CO-O” is a signature NW pose. J’s never done it before though…

Experiments in “Traditional” Media: Watercolor Colored Pencils

So, over winter break I rediscovered these:

These are watercolor colored pencils. Basically, the core of the pencil is the same stuff those solid blocks of watercolor paint are made of. The idea is you can draw with the pencil, then go over it with a wet brush to get interesting blending effects, etc.
