      Reality Check doodle

      I often doodle around in Photoshop and made this image recently that helped me focus on doing a reality check. Time for your reality check!

      Very nice. Don't think I've ever had the amorphous six-fingered hand RC actually work.

      Do you draw with mouse or tablet?

      The Bruce Almighty effect.


      Sometimes when I look at my hands, I remember seeing that both of my hands are ether like stumps, like a mutant or my fingers are like a tree with branches with little fingers coming out of them. Sometimes, my hands are invisible. Funky.


      Great picture!

      Jump to 5:04 to see the freakiest part with deformed hand, but really they're all throughout. Bruce Bickford claymation - like an acid trip just watching it!!

      Oh my god that video is so trippy! Thanks for sharing Darkmatters.

      Yeah I draw with a Wacom tablet & pen, although I think all the cool kids are using iPads and procreate now.

      Since drawing this I've actually switched to a nose plug and reading text RC, but I still hope to inspect my strange hands at some point in a LD. I was planning on stretching them out like an antenna but now I might try to get one finger to bite the other off haha.

      Lol maybe don't go quite that far!! That could turn pretty gruesome. Bruce is an amazing artist, but the guy's got issues for sure, he says he literally can't tell imagination from reality sometimes. I think that puts him right in the mythological world of continual transformation and creation, hence the idea behind his film Prometheus' Garden, where the earth itself is alive and anything you form from it becomes a living being that then creates more beings that create more, etc. And everything just keeps morphing all the time. I like watching his stuff sometimes, but I can't take it for very long!

      I drew with a mouse for a while before getting my first Wacom. Man, that was hard! The tablet made everything so much easier. I also have seen my hands look pretty weird in dreams, though never as weird as that video! You know, come to think of it, when I was expecting to see weird hands in dreams that's what I saw, and then when I expected the fingerpalm and the noseplug to work, those are what worked, and I stopped seeing the weird hands.

      ______________

      If anybody's interested in seeing more about Bruce Bickford, this video explains him pretty well:



      I haven't seen this one before but it encapsulates his particular brand of creative madness pretty well. He's looking like a biblical prophet these days, which seems very appropriate considering his dreams - I mean films take place at the juncture point of creation and transformation - he seems to live there all the time, most of us just visit in our weirdest dreams.

      About the title of the thread - would that be an Oola-Doodle? Or maybe just an Oodle?
