TG GIF Animations

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 17, 2012, 12:03 AM
Hey, you guys and girls like the GIF animation on my deviantart page? The GIF animation that's under "webcam"? You like it? Just wondering because I made it. :) Yes, I've been slowly learning how to make GIF animations. Why? Well, when I first put up the webcam widget, I used a GIF animation of the TG change from the Labatt Blue Light Commercial (just in case you don't remember:…). After a while, the link went dead and the GIF aniamtion stopped working on my deviantart page. So I replaced it with GIF animation of the TG change from the Mountain Dew Change/Girl commercial (for those who may not know what I'm referring to:…). It's one of my favorite TG moments. So that's been working, but I kind of got bored of just using that GIF animation and wanted to change it up a bit. So I tried searching for GIF animations of other TG stuff I liked. I found GIF animations for TG stuff like "Johnny Test", "Zerophilia", and "Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde", but others I couldn't find GIF animations for, particularly any from the episode of "Fantasy Island", "Estrogen", which is one of my favorite TG changes ever (this:…). So I mentioned it to my friend (who knows a little about using computers; a bit more than I know :)) and he said, "Well, why don't you make a GIF animation yourself". So he went about showing me how to make GIF animations and then I made a GIF animation of the male to female change from the "Fantasy Island" I liked. Then I thought of doing a GIF animation of the female to male change that happen towards the end of the "Fantasy Island" episode. I think both transformations were done well, but I'm more a fan of male to female transformations. When I watch the transformation at the end, I think, "No! She has such a good looking sexy, female body! It feels so good to be a woman, but now she's going back to being a shapeless, hairy man! Oh well. At least the guy she's going back to being is kinda cute. :giggle:". So I thought it would be kewl if there was a way to play that transformation in reverse and change it from a female to male transformation to a male to female transformation... and my friend showed me how to do that. Since we were making the scene short enough to make a GIF animation using movie editing software, he used the editing software to change that transformation from the end by reversing it and then I made it into a GIF animation. So yea, I just wanted to brag a little and also share these GIF animations with you guys and girls, especially the ones I made because before I made them, you couldn't find a GIF animation from that TG show/movie. Will try to make more TG GIF animations of other TG stuff that doesn't have a GIF animation available. Until then, please enjoy these TG GIF animations that I picked out to rotate through for my deviantart page. And if you like to suggest other TG GIF animations (or make share them), you are more than welcome to. :)

Fantasy Island - Estrogen (I made these :)):…… (same as first, but slowed down)… (same as first, but really slowed down)… (the female to male change, but in reverse; now, male to female change)

Mountain Dew Change/Girl:…

Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde:……


Johnny Test:…


P.S. - I'm also thinking of uploading the female to male transformation in reverse (which now makes it a male to female transformation) clip I used to make this GIF animation:… to youtube and dailymotion, if anyone's interested. Funny thing, the sound wasn't reversed (me and my friend didn't think it was important since GIF animations don't have sound anyway), but it still kind of works. :)

How to make new friends

Sat Jan 11, 2014, 2:31 PM

Making friends on dA is something requires you to have an open personality. Having an open personality isn't always something people are born with. Some people have to develop it over time, and some people are just naturally friendly. It's a wonderful quality to have in real life and on the internet. :dummy:

 I'm gonna help you break the barrier of your timidness toward others. It won't be something that happens over night but with time and perseverance, you'll start see how friendlier you are to people on deviantART and in real life!

So to start us off.. You will need to...

Greet the person!

(Yeah but nobody is as cute as stitch is. xD)

Don't be shy. You'll never know what they would have said if they didn't. A simple "hello" or "hey" will suffice. Compliments are nice too but don't go overboard with it. Don't be nervous or overanxious of what you or they are going to say. Everything flows easier if you be yourself instead of trying to fit the personality to suit another person.
:bulletblue: Don't act weird yet. Show 'em your normal side before showing them your darkside. ;)

Engage in Conversation! 

This is probably one of the hardest stages (which I consider for me. xD). Due to the fact that you know absolutely nothing about the person you about to talk to, this is all left up to chance. You can start off with "How are you?" or "What's up?" but talking about one's day doesn't always keep the conversation going. 
Or if you're like me.. You can give them.. 

OKAY JOKES. :giggle: But try to have a little fun when talking to somebody. Don't start talking about what the square root of 69 is. (Oh god. Why does my mind think this way? :noes: )
:bulletblue: Be interesting. (BUT NOT TOO INTERESTING. NOBODY WANTS TO TALK ABOUT MILEY CYRUS AND HOW BAD SHE IS) Don't try too hard. Trying to hard to appeal to somebody can seem annoying to some. 
:bulletred: Don't bring up religious or political topics. :no: Do that and you can kiss your friend good-bye. xD
:bulletblue: Find common ground. Find stuff you guys have in common and talk about them!

Bother them occasionally. xD

I don't exactly mean BOTHER them. I mean like talk to them occasionally to let them know that you're not done with them yet. :eyes:

If you see that they don't want to talk at the moment. Don't continue to bother them. You will most certainly drive them away. Be there but not always there. If you know what I mean. :iconjuap:

Flatter them

Not that much! xD

Make them feel special. Comment regularly on their art giving nice feedback and such. Be genuinely nice and complimenting about them. Don't like out pour a message of love that's like "ohmygoshyoursobeautifulandamazingandiwanttohaveyourbabiessowecanliveforeverandeverandhavebabiesandlunchanddinnerandliveinacastlewithadognameeddougandwewilllivehappyeverafter." You might creep them out unless they are like a close friend. xD
:bulletblue: To this nice to somebody, you need to be at least supporting them (give them a watch. :'D) 

And last but not least...

Be that shoulder to lean on..

When they need help. Help make them smile! Wish them happiness and love. Do what you would do if you were friends with the person. Once you get to this stage. You guys are true friends and you get to act like this:

Hooray for being crazy! :'D 
At this stage, you know you are friends with the person. :dummy:

Hope this was of some help to people and good luck on your endeavors to finding new amigos! :la: 

- Did you know that each browser has a frame delay limit for gif images?
- Are you using delays that are supported by your browser when you make animations?
- And what about other browsers?

This is a small explanation on frame delay limits that may be useful if you are new to gif animation.

Passive Voice vs Active Voice

Wed Jan 22, 2014, 1:00 PM

Hello everyone! :wave:

You've probably already read some of this week's wonderful journals on audience and beginning a story, and you're also probably wondering what exciting topic I've brought for you today. I suppose I'll tell you instead of keeping you in the dark.

Passive Voice vs Active Voice

Dean's Leg Guitar

I can see you're all excited.

To begin this article, I'll start by defining exactly what passive and active voice are.

Active Voice

With active voice, the agent (the person or thing carrying out the action) is the subject:

Harry ate six shrimp at dinner.

John opened the door.

Sue changed the flat tire.

Passive Voice

There are two different types of passive voice constructions. In the first one, the agent is identified, but the person (or) thing toward which the action is directed is the subject of the sentence instead:

At dinner, six shrimp were eaten by Harry.

The door was opened by John.

The flat tire was changed by Sue.

In the second type of passive voice construction, the agent is never identified:

Six shrimp were eaten at dinner.

The door was opened.

The flat tire was changed.

Sammy Faints XD

If you're new to this, that might be a lot of information to take in all at once, but no one expects you to be an expert after only knowing information for one day.

There is a common misconception that the words "to be" is a clear indicator, but that isn't always true. Grammar Girl explains this concept quite well, so why should I explain when she's already done it quite brilliantly?

"A lot of people think all sentences that contain a form of the verb “to be” are in passive voice, but that isn't true. For example, the sentence 'I am holding a pen' is in active voice, but it uses the verb “am,” which is a form of “to be.” The passive form of that sentence is 'The pen is being held by me.'

Notice that the subject, the pen, isn't doing anything in that sentence. It's not taking an action; it's passive. One clue that your sentence is passive is that the subject isn't taking a direct action."


Most writers think that using passive voice is wrong or incorrect. This isn't always so, but it is often a poor way to phrase your sentences. Sometimes, passive voice is awkward and clunky, and other times it's vague and unclear. Sentences written in passive voice are generally wordier than sentences written in active voice, so you can tighten up your writing in many places if you replace passive sentences with active ones.

Politicians use passive voice to intentionally obscure the idea of who is taking the action. Ronald Reagan famously said, “Mistakes were made,” when referring to the Iran-Contra scandal. Other examples of using passive voice for political reasons could include “Bombs were dropped,” and “Shots were fired.” If you watch the news, you should pay attention and listen for examples of passive voice.

There are times when the use of passive voice is encouraged. I'm going to draw on the wisdom of Grammar Girl again here:

"Passive voice is also sometimes useful in fiction writing. For example, if you were writing a mystery novel and you wanted to highlight missing cookies because they are central to the story, passive voice is the best option. It would make more sense to write, "The cookies were stolen," instead of "Somebody stole the cookies."

The difference is subtle, but in the passive sentence “The cookies were stolen,” the focus is on the cookies. In “Somebody stole the cookies,” the focus would be on the unknown somebody. Passive voice can be helpful if you want to create a sense of mystery in your sentence."

Castiel FYI

Discussion Questions

  • How often do you use active voice and how often do you use passive voice?
  • Have you ever chosen to use passive voice instead of active voice? Why?
  • Do you unconsciously use one or the other more often?


Go through a recent piece that you have written, or a piece where you use a lot of passive voice, and change it to see if the sentences flow better when you use active voice.

Go through a recent piece that you have written, or a piece where you use a lot of active voice, and change it to see if the sentences flow better when you use passive voice.

I'll leave you with this amazing gif.
