    Alright boys, my challenge is pretty straightforward, you both have to build a race car and a launcher for that car. I gave you each about 3 feet of track to mess around with, your car has to fit and drive on that track. There will be two races, the first one is pinewood derby style, it'll just be a simple slope down, all your car can use is gravity. The second one will be a straightaway, this one measures your launcher, and how your car can handle the launcher's force.
    As for rules, there aren't too many. You can make the car out of whatever you want, and the launcher as well, also feel free to decorate your car, although I know you fucks wont. Winner will be measured by whoever has the best time crossing the finish line, or whoever gets the furthest in the track, the straight track will be about 15 feet total, so there is a chance the cars wont finish. If your car flies off the track for any reason, you get one redo, if it flies off again that counts as your furthest point in the track for that race. In the event of a tie, ill have a bonus track prepped, not 100% sure what its gonna be, but it'll prob have a sick loop in it. You have two months from today so posts are due April 15th, let me know if you have any other questions, and fuck you, you can't do that.

So glad I made this.

"3 days fast"

FYYCDT 2: Prize

For his tireless efforts to create a board game that Kwon would like, Rios has been declared victorious on the battlefield we call Fuck You, You Can't Do That.

Inspired by his tried and tested victories within the greater land of Megamania, (it's Megamania, brother!), I decided to combine two of the only things I'm good at: cutting out a stencil and throwing around lots of paint onto a canvas.

So as a good Megaman day starts (or any good day, really) I spent a few hours listening to The Protomen and doodling random Megaman things.

After I got my doodle on for a while, I started thinking about a clay sculpture I was going to make, as that was my original idea. I got as far as putting the clay on my table, but ultimately was like "nah, fuck clay. sneriously." and decided to paint something kinda fun. I was okay with the pivot because I never paint anything, and I use clay an okay amount already.

So the first thing I did was get my trace on for this classic Megaman jumping pixel image. I could've tried to freehand it, I guess. And serial killers could try to not kill and dismember people, YEAH OKAY.

Here's the tracing. I probably already fucked up like 3 or 4 times on small things which will forever haunt me. 

Next step was to cut out the lil guy. I fancy myself moderately familiar with my exacto knife, and I have knack for the way paper gets all douchey when you start cutting it, so I was comfortable with this method. I debated in my head for like two seconds if I should use scissors but then I laughed and made weird noises.

There he is all cut out. Looks like a soft jump to me, no?

I lined up approximately where I wanted him to go on the canvas to get a feel for spacing and how it'd look. I thought it would look better tucked in the corner than in the center. I was mostly worried about not being able to get him smack dab in the exact center, and my eyes always seeing it as off-center forever and ever and ever vever ver.

In lieu of using spray glue, which is the bane of my existence when trying to make things, I used Charlie's favorite glue in the world. Aleene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue. I use this in place of regular Elmer's white glue, because it dries a lot faster. A lot faster.

Here's the blue bomba glued down. I wasn't stoked about the glue job, as it created some lifts on the edges, but hey, what the fuck am I gonna do it's not like I have total control of these inanimate objects or anything.

I had bought these blues when I had an idea for a different project that never materialized into anything. It wasn't even Megaman related, I just needed a buncha blues. I think these are pretty close to the right palette, so I didn't mess around too much with the colors, although when I really started huckin paint around the colors did get mixed a bit.

It woulda been pretty cool to film me actually throwing paint, but I was doing this on a random Sunday and I didn't feel like risking my camera getting hit if I put it on the tripod. This is the wall of my studio now, haha. It looks kinda cool on it's own, I think.

And of course, here's the finished goods. I'm okay with it. I hope Rios will use it proudly as his new toilet art fixture. 

See you fucks for round 3.

It's Coming

I'm sorry, Charlie. We must do these things from time to time...
