Comment Anti-face-recognition options (Score 1) 90 90

Not just neckbeards, creative hairstyles and makeup can easily break facial recognition algorithms. You can already find some nice examples and tutorials for this online. I sort of like the idea of a future where everyone is wearing ziggy stardust kind of makeup.

In art school, there wasn't a lot of criticism, and they were nice about it -- tried to encourage you a lot. However, when I started working as an animator, if there was something wrong with a scene it had to be redone. If you didn't do it right, you didn't get paid. So, you learn pretty quickly not to be too sensitive to criticism.

Comment Cartoon or Comic? (Score 1) 74 74

Pick one and do it well. Primitive animation can be funny or cute, but it needs to be designed with that in mind - as a low budget animation, something which will be shown on screen rather than in print. This can work on a small screen quite well. If you want to make a comic though, tacking on a few sound effects and screen wipes really adds very little, and is more likely to disrupt the experience.

Comment "Like" on facebook can be a misleading term. (Score 4, Insightful) 214 214

If you want to follow any discussion taking place on a facebook page, you usually have to "Like" it first. The word implies that you are supporting it, but you might just do it for the sake of curiosity, not to show how you genuinely feel about a subject.
