It's been a few days. I take it it's fine to double-post?
Well, I've picked up some black posterboard paper, and I've yet to complete two test figures. It turns out that the hardware store is phasing-out that lovely poplar board... So I have to make do with strong particle board instead. I've also found some 65 lb. parchment style card stock for use as the Uprising Books' pages.
I had also taken the time to check for available lights. There are some 134 lumen models for around 20 dollars CAD a piece. Those would be fine for a street 'strike team' group.
I still need graphics for a slide, 1200 by 1800 pixels. I might have to Vector something up for myself, for lack of an available artist. Go cheap Photoshop skills! (
Tron-sculpture is recognizable, although even at this scale, those deep-set eyes of his are a problem. There's not enough mass to complete much of a reach towards his shoulders, but I want to raise up his armature base so I can at least get that 'T' emblem there on his chest... I can tell that smoothing his full figure (as best I can) is going to be painstaking.
Dropping some 'Tron Lives' comments around Facebook on Disney Animation studios:
'A character tired of his job, working hard for 30 years, living in an electronic world. My, my, that sounds like...
... Tron! You're just a young rip, playing pretend, Ralph! Show some respect and hearty thanks to the real underground hero and protector of the digital, electronic realm of Disney!
Tron, of Tron: Uprising, would be just the father-figure and mentor you'd need to really shine and gain some confidence.
And further, they make no mention of Uprising
in their glee over their Annie awards.
' I see praise for Wreck-it-Ralph, and for Paperman... Deserving as these are, my praise lies with Tron: Uprising! For being such an underground series, it's come to garner praise wherever I have looked!
I have not had an enthusiasm for any Disney content for decades, but the writing, visuals and technique development, and concepts behind Tron: Uprising have been excellent! ... It's restored my faith in at least one of Disney's works!
I would strongly wish for a second season, and I am waiting eagerly for it's DVD or Blu-Ray release! When released, I fully intend to buy additional copies and donate them to my local library, Children's Hospital/Health Sciences Center, YMCA, Youth Drop-in Centers, and other similar locations!
I fully believe that Tron: Uprising is deserving of this praise, and I hope that such actions go on to inspire other fans of this excellent series!
