How much do you bet the rock lobster is going to fall to its death when the rope gives out?

That does lead to question how on earth it is that they emerge from the caves when lead out... Maybe they're lighter-weight than we think, or very very fast rope climbers? Who knows, they never let us witness it. It must be a secret somehow.

Figured I'd share my crackpot Wagstaff theory that I came up with several weeks ago.

20180729_150030.thumb.jpg.63fd4e29f071089bc517f8b3a238e1fb.jpg

Interesting, I see a name, 'Darleen' also on the grave. Is WX familiar with both?

Also, I still don't know who Wagstaff is. Maybe Minespatch can tell me, it seems like they know everything or something like that.

Wagstaff

Great pose! I haven't thought about it too much, but I do think that WX might be powered by Wagstaff's remnants of a soul. You make a lot of interesting points - Wagstaff discovering black magic through Maxwell, and him using some of it for the Voxola radios, and WX.

Sacrifice. I like that. Perhaps he even killed himself (stabbing himself in the heart or something) in a ritual to transfer his soul, and WX woke to the corpse of his creator, with only fragmented memories and knowledge.

I believe he is the inventor of the Voxola radio that we see in Wilson's origin story.

But where does it say this? I was sent something to the wiki but it didn't really say anything verified.

I kinda just made Darleen up on the spot, since a lot of married couples share tombstones. I don't think WX knows either... this is just a meaningless drawing.

Bless you people for reading that whole thing. As for the sacrifice thing, though stabbing oneself in the heart is dramatic and all, you know it's got to be more science-y.

I guess that's how it works. I forgot about how his body went missing, though... Perhaps he was either taken to the Constant, or his body was consumed in whatever ritual he did, or WX took it? Since WX seems to recall the fire, he was probably initialized during it... Maybe Wagstaff died before WX was actually finished, so his soul was consumed but that is why the transfer was flawed.

That's a good one. Generally a better reason for the failure rather than "it just didn't work".

Ahh, I see now, thank you.
Where on earth was that thing buried? I had seriously never even heard the name 'Wagstaff' until I met you.

These ideas definitely make more sense now.

  2. Wait... do ya think, do ya think that maybe Wagstaff used his OWN soul to create WX? Was this a result of Wagstaff trying to achieve immortality? Intriguing... man, I'd gladly write essays of lore for Klei for peanuts, maybe even nothing. I love lore.

There was a link under "References" on the wiki page. If not for that, I would never had known.

I think he's mentioned in the William Carter puzzles. Correct me if I'm wrong.

That theory was quite a read but I made it to the end ^_^ quite an interesting theory.

Read this far?

Read the whole thing. That was very interesting. 

I have mixed feelings on perfectionism myself. It depends on the definition/connotation. For what I know of it, I don't think it's harmful if it's under control. My mother is a really big perfectionist, and an amazing artist. Really amazing... Me, I was never born a perfectionist. I don't actually know what people can see from my art, but if things can be determined, maybe this is one of them.  I had to kind of grow some perfectionist-ness for myself, like a plant. That and patience. 
In the far past I would never notice the flaws of my work, like I was blind to them. But perfectionists notice flaws. This is what I mean by having to grow it. I notice them much more now. I still don't always notice all of them. 

To be without perfectionism isn't entirely good either, not for art anyway. Or for a clean house, at that matter. Compare my room to my mother's. XP 
It definitely affects your life, though not every aspect.

As an animation major, drawing messy is fine, you need to get messy. When I'm coloring digitally I would wanna get all the colors 100% in there, but really no one is gonna see those stray pixels. In traditional art I can't seem to do smooth lines perhaps due to how I hold my pens, but it still looks fine, the best thing to do is just get the idea across cuz in the end folks aren't gonna look at those gesture marks or slightly wobbled line. In painting that's when things get tough, but again you gotta lean back on it. Yeeha take it easy

Yes, it does depend how you define perfectionism. Knowing that there is room for improvement in your life/skills/whatever is a bit different, I think. At any rate, perfectionism is more a flaw when it's in the extremes.

See, I can't even imagine not being super critical of my work. Occasionally I'll look at something I did and say "that's pretty okay, actually", but even then there's something about it I don't like. I have no idea even what ballpark of skill level I'm in because all I see is amateur garbage.

Being self-critical is important for improvement, but it can take a toll on your self esteem sometimes. Especially when the criticism moves beyond art...

One thing I've noticed is that you're super apologetic most of the time. Generally, though, the impression is that you just want to get the idea across most of the time, and presentation isn't your primary concern.

I know this on an intellectual level. No one is going to be looking that closely at my drawings, and if they do for whatever strange reason, are they going to fixate on that flaw? Are they going to care the tiniest bit? No. I have to continuously remind myself that no one cares as much as I do, and what matters is finishing the project and moving on to the next.

Someone else put it this way once: you're going to end up hating your old art anyway, so there's no need to put in THAT much effort and polishing. There is a balance between quality and quantity that must be attained for the best time management and technical improvement.

It sucks when you look at someone like Scott Robertson, who just has maximum arm control apparently, then your own lines are super wobbly and just go off course. Again, though, how many people are going to notice?

 

I've been trying to be conscious of this issue of mine, as I head off to college in September (where there's going to be DEADLINES and I can't take as long as I like), as well as the fact that I want to make comics or game art or something... where there's also deadlines. I can't let this continue. However, it requires action and not whining on a forum.

Thanks, guys.

Oh, it's not about knowing whether we need room for improvement... I mean, maybe with a messy room it is, but usually it's a lack of understanding for where.
In a technical sense, though, I do get perfectionistic about specific things. Namely cooking.

When it moves beyond art, and into a criticism of yourself - Even I know that feeling. In a past time I was pretty entrenched in self-hate actually. No human can completely escape it so it's probably still there, just less in this current time. I was much younger when it existed at it's level. And not as well along in 'teaching myself perfectionism.'  Self-hate and self-esteem, and self-criticism or any such related thing probably shouldn't be connected with perfectionism, depending on the definition. The thing that makes us keep a room sparkling or try to perfect art isn't actually the same as what gives us esteem or promotes positive self-image.

Ah, yes. Apologetic, because I know I'm not giving my best presentation. I am working on something I am doing my best on, but I spend copious amounts of time doing these.  It's still not finished... 

But yeah, I'm apologizing and recognizing those flaws in my work, too. But I can't say I'm disturbed by my messy presentation beyond anything else. What DragonHead said about 'no one will notice those stray pixels' comes to mind, but it's different for me because it's doodles on lined paper vs. non-lined paper... 
Sometimes it comes as lack of ability to see issue. And sometimes it just comes as tolerance of issue.  Extremity of either Perfectionism or lack of therein could be bad. I say 'Could' because I don't know what everyone's definition for it all is. 
To be perfectionist to the point that we stress out when a little mess is made in the house or descend into self-hate because of a personal flaw is of course, not ideal. To lack perfectionism to the point where your home is unsanitary and where you do nothing to improve as a person and continue in personal flaw (Think Lying or any other form of malicious selfishness that is constantly present in all humans and in need of constant improvement.)  is also not ideal. 

I can't say I lack being perfectionist on all things. Honestly, the self-hate I mentioned probably came from perfectionism in that area.

This reminds me that much of my problem is rooted in comparing myself to others, often older and more experienced artists. I don't see the flaws in their work, so when I hold myself up to that standard, it's basically the standard of flawlessness. An issue indeed.
