    He was pretty original in the Sia clip.

    Anyway, to add to your point, watching Mark Crilley do his thing from beginning to end is just amazing and very educational.

    Bob Ross is GOAT

    I've never painted, but there's nothing better than lighting one up and throwing on a bit of Joy of Painting.

    I can tell you that this is pretty much BS. And I dont like it since it insinuates that the artist that has learned how to draw was due to talent and not hard work and preparation. Drawing is very difficult and it requires 1000s of hours of dedicated and deliberate practice and study to achieve mastery.

    Most people try drawing for a few hours without any study or practice and get poor results and blame lack of talent or genetics. Its a technical skill just like anything else, too many have a romanticized aerie faerie perception about it when in fact it is extremely knowledge based and technical ability.

    Dam! Bringing up threads from the grave!
    I've been doodling randomly here and there using my Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and my ThinkPad yoga. Both have Wacom pens built into the device, but I prefer the Note Pro. I used to only draw with pen and paper sketches but started doing digital art this year. Never had any training or school of any kind, just got high and watched Bob Ross a couple times. Here's a couple recent ones using Sketchbook and ArtFlow:

    FYI, if anyone wants to get digital art started for cheap, look for a used Galaxy Note Pro on eBay, OfferUp, LetGo, etc.
    You can get them super cheap (got mine for $250) and they're better than the newest Samsung tablets with S-Pen. I got this pen to match and it works amazing:

    STORY TRICKS #23489 of a Series:

    In the movie CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, Tom Hanks' Agent Carl Hanratty is searching for DiCaprio's Frank Abagnale Jr, whom at one point he only knows as Barry Allen, Treasury Department.

    Pretty standard set-up to a scene, in a well-worn diner set.

    Seriously, this place is in like every movie; it's the Quality Cafe:
    [​IMG]

    If we were to take Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey, this is the point when our hero needs help. He cannot continue on his own. Help often comes in the form of a wizard. Luke has Obi-Wan. Dorothy has Glinda the Good Witch. So who does Hanratty have?

    This guy? But, but he's a waiter! Some kid! What's so special about him?
    [​IMG]
    Well, he did play Donatello in the updated TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, but that's hardly a wizard. Tech genius turtle ninja, yes -- but no wizard.

    Look closer:
    [​IMG]
    See the clock behind his head? The sun starburst? Kind of a Jesus halo effect? That's not a mistake that it give this kid a bit of a supernatural air. It's subtle for sure, but it's there.

    It's little details and compositional tricks that breathe life into a story while re-affirming cinematic rules that we might not even know are at work.

    You can read about how much THE FLASH works itself into CATCH ME IF YOU CAN here.
