Tron: Uprising letter background by LucrataNexarii Tron: Uprising letter background by LucrataNexarii
Thoughts: In an age of electronic media, there is a certain value, personal creativity, opinion, and strength of statement put into a physical letter.

The fate of Tron: Uprising is an unfortunate example of mismanagement - and possibly, I hesitantly wager, deliberate undermining - of what was otherwise being developed as a brilliant, inspiring series.

For anyone wishing to send their regards to Disney in support of this creation, I humbly offer this.

I believe that as fans, we must express our thoughts. As individuals, we must create things which reflect our meaning. We must guard those concepts we cherish.

Artists must not be denied the right to their story, expressiveness, craftsmanship, and depth. My due regards go out to Steve Lisberger, Joe Kosinski and Charlie Bean, who have given us the presence and soul of Tron.

Thank you, WolfDemonGirl.

I can only hope that others might enjoy the spirit that this was made for (basic and swift as it was). It is my private hope that others might follow in taking up their willpower, and expressing their voices and wishes (via letters or otherwise).

What stands as good and admirable as a series and as a visual art is one matter, but to each of us as individuals, there are also those things that move us to action because of the strength of our care, and wish to see it's continuation.

Good days to you! I am sure that we both wish to see more good spirit of Tron: Uprising here within DA. :nod:

Thank you!

It's meant as something to be shared, something easy, something basic...

But most of all, it's there to help the expressions of others! Written letters are an important form of expression, and a good form of devotion. If there are any other fans willing to share their thoughts, then this is there for them. :nod:

I hope yourself and others enjoy!

Very nice to hear!

I've included artwork with my letters before, and I intend for the next letter set to involve some calligraphy! ... Not that I have a steady or fine hand.

Yet, artwork of a form, nevertheless! It's good to know that there are others who are keeping up the fight directly! I'll share any artwork or interesting creations here as I go along.

Take care, Mackie!

:clapped: Well said! It was very well plotted. I heard the time was changed so often that people could not record the show with their DVR or even watch it. If one is at practice or work, how can you know what time it will be if it's changed?

This is true. I do not know how many iterations of time-slot changes Tron: Uprising had gone through; at least one or two, to be certain.

So, the disruption has been on many levels, either relating to a flat, hollow argument of Uprising's ratings being bad (then why is it so acclaimed and praised wherever I look, why are fans angry and clamoring for more?), or it's simply a state of no answers - absolute shadow as to why Uprising has been dragged back into the shadows and left there.

Given, the first season was just setting up the basis of this new perspective on the Grid and it's universe - and that is shown via it's intricate pace and attention to characters' conflicts. This only hints at the gravity and strength which subsequent seasons might have possessed.

... Should the voice of fans be heard, this is a story which should continue to it's full spectrum and conclusion. My belief and impetus are just as much for Lisberger and Kosinksi as artists, and their great minds behind this strong work and world which we know of in Tron: Uprising.

If I am willing to stand and do what I can, then I can only hope that others may join myself and the group of other dedicated fans. :nod:

Well, you look like you're experienced with didgital drawings! Thats some great lighting, did you use photoshop?

Yes, this was done entirely in Photoshop 7.

It was a quick study in how to utilize Photoshop's basic geometrical selection tools for the sake of creating a relatively uniform graphic. I hadn't done so before now.

A simple gradient was the lighting basis. Originally the disc was a little darker, but I lightened it with a large, basic, feathered Brush tool - there might still be some minor shade differences due to that; a deliberate bit of variety. The glow around the edge disc lights, and the inner ring was also done that way.

The 'T' emblem was taken from another artist who had shared a letterhead with our fan-group of activists. I had also copied her choice of text, but modified the text itself to be in a different font. 'Flynn' font for 'Tron Lives' and just regular selection for the rest.

Overall, it is a very simplistic image, and I would not call it any feat of digital art - but it has served it's purpose for some learning... And more importantly, sharing with others.

Aha, i see. I havent tried making many symmetrical shapes in photoshop other than my DA avatar. But i want to get used to Autocad for that mater.

Ah, you have access to AutoCAD? I haven't used the program, myself - but I've certainly heard about it.

I hope that it proves practical to your works. :nod:

Certainly Photoshop is rather the opposite, requiring one to jump through hoops to create basic geometries with much accuracy.
