I don't have a lot of favorites. Giftart is the only thing I can be counted on to fave; you can find it in the "Friendables" folder.

I don't critique much, but I still give more critiques than I receive. But those of you with premium memberships can fix that, right?

Road trip to relatives' for Thanksgiving.  Have been in the car for less than two hours and have already heard Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer three times.
"If you don't like it, don't look at it" isn't a slogan to live by.
A particular tribe has two categories of tribesmen: Sunkind and Moonkind.

When asked a question by an outsider, a Sunkind will always answer truthfully, whereas a Moonkind's answer will always be false.  Apart from that, members of the two tribes are virtually indistinguishable, as they dress and behave identically.

You've just met two tribesmen at a fork in the road.  You have a hunch that the first is a Sunkind and the second is a Moonkind, but you haven't confirmed it.

So you point at the first tribesman and ask: "Are you a Sunkind or a Moonkind?"

"I'm a Sunkind," he replies.  Which is exactly how a Sunkind would answer that question.

Then you point at the second tribesman and ask the same question.

His answer: "I'm a Sunkind."  Which is exactly the answer a Moonkind would give.

You take these answers as proof that the first tribesman is a Sunkind, and the second is a Moonkind.

Is this wise?
Logical Fallacies II
A second edition of Logical Fallacies, incorporating an actual logical fallacy or two.

I feel like I should be writing a book on this.

These status updates make it pretty clear that I would be very active on Twitter if I actually had any followers there.
A particular tribe has two categories of tribesmen: Sunkind and Moonkind.

When asked a question by an outsider, a Sunkind will always answer truthfully, whereas a Moonkind's answer will always be false.

One day, you happen upon a member of the tribe at a fork in the road.  You're sure he's either a Sunkind or a Moonkind, but you have no idea which one.

So you ask him: "Excuse me, sir.  Are you a Sunkind or a Moonkind?"

"I'm a Sunkind," he replies.

What have you proven?
In all of my classes, I prefer to sit at the far right end of the back row.  I wonder what that says about me.
No idea what to draw/write next.  Or maybe I'm just not motivated.  It can be hard to tell sometimes.
The Turtle Problem by sonicinterface
The Turtle Problem
So, here's something that's been bugging me for a little while.

On the left: a generic Mobian turtle.  No, I'm not planning to make him a character.  He wasn't designed with any existing character in mind, nor any particular species of turtle; I basically just made him up on the fly.  Turtles are one of those species that are well-known enough that they get anthropomorphized a lot.

On the right: the same turtle, hiding in his shell for defense.  This ability is one of the most if not the most well-known traits of a turtle, and is probably why they're so well-known in the first place; as such, no Mobian or otherwise anthropomorphic turtle is complete without it.

Looking between the two, I'm sure you notice something troubling.  If you don't, try to picture a cross-section of the pose on the right, showing the turtle inside his shell.  Then try to imagine the transition between the two poses.

See the problem?  He can't possibly fit in there.  His head in particular is problematic; it's larger than his shell is.  The standard for Mobian body proportions renders this critical maneuver totally impossible.

Even supposing that the shell is "bigger on the inside" (and forgiving the ridiculous "actual" body proportions that supposition would imply) doesn't completely solve the problem, as it still leaves the matter of fitting his head and limbs through their respective holes.  No possible neck hole could accommodate his head without taking up the entire shell!

I know not everyone cares about issues like this, but I do, and everyone has their pet peeves.

Commissions

Short Story (normal)
Self-explanatory.  Tell me exactly what you want, and you'll get it.  I'll write about just about anything, but be prepared to supply any reference materials I request.
Short Story (blind)
Like the normal Short Story commission, but with a twist: you're not allowed to specify a single detail about what you want.  I'll just do something I think you'll like.
Short Story (semi-blind)
The median between normal and blind.  You're allowed to specify one or two details-- the main character, or the theme, or perhaps even the title-- but that's it.
Character
Got a fictional 'verse you're proud of, but that could use one or two more characters?  I'd be happy to make a character for it!  (Pictoral references not available; textual profiles only.)
I'm in graduate school and lately my classes have started to break out the major homework assignments.  I've turned into a workaholic out of necessity, spending more and more of my free time on homework, and spending all my free days working at the school computer lab.  Late at night I find myself thinking about my assignments rather than the more personal things I would rather think about.

One homework assignment in particular is giving me grief.  I've been neglecting my other assignments to work on it.  And I don't think I'll be able to finish it in time.

Whatever the case, I doubt I'll be able to find the time or peace of mind to do anything artistic anytime soon.

I'll give you 10 points if you create a code sheet that would be good for law enforcement use over cb radio, using only letters and numbers as pictographs describing the situation.

For example here is one for packages:

E3 = regular package

E7 = damaged package

8B = bundled package

CD = Locked package

HU = opened bundled package

UL = opened regular package


And yes I am very aware of the 10 codes, I'm looking for something almost unbreakable for when I play FPS' together online with my friends.

On a scale of one to ten, how ironic is it that the character I adopted became a fill-in character?
