Anonymous: Hi Charles, I absolutely love your work! I'm an animation student myself and I was wondering what software do you use for your vector-looking 2D work. I'm familiar with flash and after effects but your line quality seems like you could have also been using a more advanced software like tvpaint. is that true? or do you just draw frame by frame on photoshop? :P

Is James Cameron’s Avatar a terrible film, or does it have something legit to say about the evolving nature of identity in the internet age?
We also talk a bunch about general indie animation stuff in the second half because we just couldn’t help it.
Movie Buddies - Movie Buddies - Avatar 



Here is the first episode of Movie Buddies where Charles and I talk about Avatar for a little bit and then talk about a bunch of other animation things.  Charles takes the movie down as racist/sexist while I try to make a case for its attitude about identity and technology (not an endorsement or defense for the more problematic aspects of the movie).
Also small addendum: I talk about Aaron Schartz at one point (the Internet activist who committed suicide in early 2013) and say that the laws that made his offense so major were outdated laws from the 70s.  I was referencing this, but realized later that this actually played a bigger role in the prosecution.

our first episode is online, check it out

Anonymous: What kind of brush do you use for most of your animations? It's rough but has the nicest amount of definition :3

in photoshop i mostly use the regular round flat brush/pencil.  in flash i also use the regular round one, but with smoothing at 0.  for the stuff with a textued edge, i just use one of the stock organic looking photoshop brushes with angle jitter turned up.
