[indistinct chatter]

- WHEN WE'RE LOOKINGFOR TECHNICAL PRECISION,

WE WANT TO SEE PEOPLEKEEP EVERYTHING SUPER TIGHT.

WE'RE GONNA BE LOOKING ATALL THE NITPICKY LITTLE DETAILS

TO MAKE SUREALL THE LINES MATCH UP,

ALL THE COLOR IS SOLID,

ALL THE BLENDSARE NICE AND SMOOTH.

- I WANT THE FREAKING, LIKE,EARS TO BE PRETTY BIG,

SO THAT'S GONNA REPRESENT,LIKE, THE SONAR.

- SO WE'RE GONNA DO A SUNON YOUR SOLAR PLEXUS.

- YES.

- HE WANTS A REALISTIC SUN

IN THE MIDDLE OF HIS CHEST,

AND I STILL HAVE TO FIGURE OUTHOW TO MAKE IT A SUPERPOWER.

IT MIGHT BE KIND OF COOLIF WE DID THE SUN AT THE TOP

AND THEN MAYBE WE DIDSOME CONCENTRIC RINGS

THAT KIND OF COME DOWN,SO MAYBE IT LOOKS LIKE

THE SUN IS ABLETO MELT ANYTHING.

THE ONLY THING I CAN THINKTO SHOW PRECISION

IS ROUND CIRCLES.

- I'M MORE OF A VISUAL.

IF I CAN SEE IT,I CAN SAY YES OR NO.

- IT'S KIND OF HARD FOR METO DRAW 13 DESIGNS

AND HAVE YOU GO, LIKE,"YEAH, THAT'S WHAT I WANT."

- THERE'S A LOT OF TURMOILINSIDE OF ME.

I'VE GOT THE JUDGES IN MY HEADTELLING ME TO DO THINGS ONE WAY.

I'VE GOT MYSELF IN MY HEADTRYING TO TELL ME

HOW TO DO IT ANOTHER,AND AT THIS POINT,

I REALLY NEED TO GIVE AMERICAA REASON WHY THEY VOTED ME BACK.

- DON'T MOVE.

- KYLE--DOING THE SHIELDWITH THE FLEUR-DE-LIS.

WHOOPITY-DOO.

WHEN KYLE'S IN HIS OWN ELEMENT,

HE CAN KNOCK TATTOOSOUT OF THE PARK,

BUT KYLE DOESN'T DEALWITH STRESS AT [bleep] ALL.
