…ok, so I was talking to my oldest son Nick who produces film for a living and I asked him what he thought about the films I’ve been producing and he didn’t seem too very impressed with them so I said they didn’t look that good on the internet and he said that’s because YouTube compresses the tar out of everything and that I needed to use Vimeo so I immediately created another one of my little low budget spaghetti westerns and then proceeded to load it up on Vimeo AND YouTube for a little compare and contrast but the only difference I could see was that the Vimeo website has better looking graphics than YouTube does so the only thing I seem to have really accomplished today is to set a new world record for the longest sentence ever written on the Brother Jones web site for which I am very, very proud…

Don Jones

In the middle of reading your lengthy one sentence blog, I felt short of breath, somewhat dizzy and almost passed out. Love that choppy water. You gotta remember that Nick has higher standards than the original Joneses.

Dennis Jones

…for us original Joneses, if the job gets done, it’s plenty good enough…

Doug Jones

mega awesomeness dittos on that sentence, Den.

Bernard

Dennis, Awesome Art, The YouTubes are fine for me…but I’m not talking to you because of the Colts! Ben picked a fine time to go a slumpin’ now everybody here is yellin’ for Byron! So, I guess that our fans are no different than anywhere else…what have you done for us lately?

Bernard

Hey Keegan, wherez the spell check?

Don Jones

You simply cannot beat Herb Alpert music … very fitting selection for the Surfin’ Dawg. It made me feel like I was on the beach!

Dennis Jones

…ya want to hit one outa the ball park? …add Herb Alpert to it… works ever time… a little advice for Nick from Den and Don…

…Bernard, look on the bright side… at least Indiana doesn’t have a hockey team to knock the Penguins off with…

Bernard

No, but what’s with the assumption that if they did, they would? Herb Alpert…gotta go check this out!

Dennis Jones

…I don’t believe that’s assumption, I believe that’s just a fact that you will be unable to disprove at this time, Bernard…

Doug Jones

you just can’t beat BrotherJones logic!

Jason Bourne

The Brother Jones logic book has a nice ring to it!

Bernard

Amen. But at least weez ain’t gutt noes “Potheads” fer a baseball team!

Dennis Jones

…sorry, that doesn’t count… they’re minor league… on the other hand, if Indiana did have a major league baseball team, the Pirates would really be in trouble…

Don Jones

All this makes absolutely no sense to me and is quite hard to follow. Keep up this fine bloggin’ material.

Dennis Jones

…it’s Monday, Don, I’m just typing random words together and pretending they make sense…

Bernard

Hey Dennis, thanks for showing me some mercy because boy did I almost walk into that one! You coulda said, “Even your Minor Leaguers can beat the Pirates”! Whew! That was a close one.

Don Jones

Bernard, by this last comment, you are way too sharp to be reading this Jones Brother nonsense. Your I.Que. has gotta be in tha triple digits range.

roballoo

A real subcultural quality to those waves there. Reminds me a bit of Breadwig’s stuff. But he’s doin’ some of his illustrations in actual 3d programs. I wish there was a way we could actually see you do your digital painting. But that might be giving away too many of your secrets. If you were to consider it though, this program might be of interest. haven’t tried it, but Ive heard a lot of good things about it: flip4mac But it’s probably best for when you want to get real serious about tutorializing.

Dennis Jones

…thanks RobalLOO, I’ll take a look at that… I downloaded a demo copy of I-Show-U, have piddled around with it several times, but it really seems to bog my system down when I use it, so I never bought it… these little videos I’ve been making are mostly for my own entertainment as I try to get my I-Movie video editing chops down…

Jason Bourne

We will see, what we can see. Perhaps I need to get more tech savvy since I’m in the Jones Domain of Art. Lots to learn here.

Doug Jones

wha?…

Taylor McGee

I think these videos would be better if they had some Weasel Boy music…

Dennis Jones

…I think they’d be better if they just had some weasels, period…

Bernard

Don’t you just love it ( chick-a-boom ). Now we all remember someone’s grandmother/grandfather telling us that if you give them an inch, they will want a yard! now this is why us peasants are always out in the yard! Because that’s what we want from poor old Dennis! A Yard! a Yard! We like those vidoes and how-tooeys but…WE WANT MORE! LIGHT THE TORCHES!

Bernard

Give us online classes in real-time or give us death ( your wacom would suffice ).

Jason Bourne

All in favor of online classes: say “Aye”….AYE!

Bernard

Jason…it’s Arrrgh not aye! Do you have a torch?

Don Jones

NOTE TO SELF: Check batteries on the Brother Jones blog smoke detector.

Bernard

Yeah…nothing like a little heat to keep you three honest.

roballoo

I, Eye, Aye!

I’m currently working on a 43 page project, which I didn’t think would be that much of a problem until I received the job and realized that each one of those pages had a front AND a back to it. That shot my page count up to 86 pages plus a few others thrown in for good measure… so I’m kinda busy right now.

I’m doing tons of spot illustration for this assignment, so I downloaded I-Show-U for twenty bucks, and recorded the picture I was working on last night. You can see it HERE.

The Comments

Mike Lang

Thanks for posting this! It is awesome to see how you work step by step.

Don Jones

BRAVO!! Brilliant. WeaselBoy Productions is picking up speed.

Bernard

Brillant! What else you got? …go ahead and pay some bills Denn, there’s 2 more of you Joneses to torture until you get back! Idea: Getcher $20 back and then some by recording the project your on now and selling it to us peasants!

Bernard

Hey Mike Lang! Is you the Pittsburgh Hockey Mike Lang?

Jason Bourne

This is swanky as usual… The impression here is great!

Doug Jones

Now we’re TALKIN’ best 20 bucks you have spent lately, I’d say.

Dennis Jones

…Mike, I didn’t know you announced Pittsburgh Penguins games in your spare time…

Dan Lietha

To watch Dennis Jones digitally paint in a screen capture video is a dream come true! And with Mylon LeFevre and Broken Heart to boot! My week is complete. 🙂 Thanks man!

Bernard

he shoots and SCORES! Aghhhhh “Michael, Michael, Motorcycle”!!!! If this is the wrong Mike Lang, poor mike will not have a clue what I’m talking about! or… “Scratch my back with a hacksaw, you gotta be here to believe it”!

Doug Jones

I believe this Mike Lang is the goalie for the LifeWay Ligers.

Jason Bourne

{Wind blows by} Its desolate here. Hope to see you again Mr.Lang.

roballoo

Thanks for the video. It was treat. It’s amazing how far you’ve come in your digital painting skills in such a short amount of time.
