I decided to give it a try and follow tips from Adam Celadin after I got some smith & Wesson non-sharpened knives. Someone left some gigantic empty cardboard boxes at work and wrote "trash" on them. They were totally clean and I knew nobody was coming back for them, so I took them home so I could use them as a target.
Following tips from Adam Celadin, I'm actually not off to a TERRIBLE start, I've stuck on 5 of 6 throws a few times already. I tried some no-spin throws he shows in a video and it's definitely harder to pull off but I can do it maybe every 5 attempts.
I like doing it and it's a fun hobby that I'm glad I got into starting, although as for what weapon I'd choose in the hunger games, I'd still take a short sword for the beginning and a bow afterwards, I will concede that my previous thoughts about throwing knives as being ridiculous were unfounded and based on my lack of experience in throwing them because while my consistency isn't there, I have already proven that it can be effective.
What's something new you've tried and how did it go?
I’ve been recently getting into animation as a side hobby. I write/record/mix my own music, but I wanted some sort of visual for the pieces I create, so I went ahead and purchased Adobe Creative Cloud (although I hate subscription based software with a passion, but alas, I don’t know a better alternative).
I’ve created standalone art before electronically, so it’s not totally new to me, but animation itself is slow as hell to do. 24 frames per sec, a different drawing every two frames. It’s been more of an afternoon-chill type of thing. I get really perfectionist on these types of things, so a single project may take me several months to complete, but I’ll be happier with the end product.
if you are making 2d animations and want free software the fist that comes to mind for me is krita I've dabbled around in it a little but from what I've seen its probably one of the best free and opensource digital art programs out there and it has a decently sized community and is crossplatform
