Disney's FROZENHey everyone!Disney's FROZEN2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, it's been like a month since Disney's Frozen was released in theatres. Have you seen it? Have you loved it? Are you going to see it, or do you really don't care about non what so ever?
With latest addition of Frozen's mountain man Krstoff to my Disney Heroes Collection - I don't know if I'll do much more FROZEN related artworks, much like what happened with me and Tangeld. I like Frozen much more then I liked Tangled, but I still don't find the CGI visuals to be that inspiring as 2D hand drawn animation.
Though I might do some more Hans work - I LOVE LOVE LOVE him!
So the still celebrate the release and success of the film, here's a re-cap off all my FROZEN related work.
Hope you'll enjoy them.

Goodbye Nostalgia CriticAnd so the Nostalgia Critic has become nostalgia itself...Goodbye Nostalgia Critic3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I knew that Doug couldn't play the Critic forever and after 200+ episodes, I was partially preparing myself for the day when he would make THAT announcement and when it did come yesterday, I knew exactly what he was going to say; that he had done everything he could with the character, there was nothing more to be said, it was simply the right time to end it, you know, the usual reasons... it's just that it STILL feels that it happened rather sooner than I was expecting it!
I think we were all in denial about what the original trailers for To Boldly Flee meant by declaring this the Nostalgia Critic's final journey and were hoping that that was just trailer-speak for a metaphorical end rather than a literal one. We can't deny that there were plenty of other signs that the character was being wrapped up but it was easy to believe that we were being paranoid and looking too much into certain scenes and that there would still be a

Update: Disney Animation!*Blows the dust off my front page*Update: Disney Animation!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hey guys! It's been a while since I've updated my journal. I have some wonderful news to share.
I'm going to be working at the Walt Disney Animation Studio as a visual development trainee! It's been a dream of mine to work as an artist at Disney feature since I was a little girl and I can't believe it's actually happening. I'm extremely happy to start and I can't wait to meet all the amazing people who work at Disney and absorb as much as my mind can absorb. Woo!

Colorists and Clean-Up Artists Wanted!Hey, all you lovely folks!Colorists and Clean-Up Artists Wanted!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
How would you feel about being a colorist or clean-up artist on my thesis film, Welcome to Hell?
Here's the blog, check it out!
Basically, my second semester is devoted to clean-up and coloring, but it's going to take me forever and I'm kind of counting on the fact that I have one or two people who have offered to help me. But if I can count on more people to help me--and definitively--that'd be even better!
This journal is just a way for me to gauge interest and feel out the possibility of having followers help me out!
Here's basically what you'd be doing:
Colorists: You would be using Photoshop or programs like Photoshop to basically fill-in all of the color on the characters! If you know how to use the fill/paint bucket tool you're pretty much qualified! You may also have to go in and touch up the parts that the fill tool wont reach. Something like a sample "style shot" with color palettes would be provided for you
Alpha and Omega: a movie reviewIf you have ever observed or participated in a "wolf RPG," you are excused from the rest of this review.Alpha and Omega: a movie review5 years ago in Personal More Like This
I really should have just made a "howlingly bad" pun and drank myself to sleep after watching this.
To those of you who are left, please take a seat, as this will take a while. You may want to get a snack, go ahead, I'll wait. Now that you're situated, I'll come out and say something rather bold: Alpha and Omega is the worst talking animal movie I've ever seen.
Now, there may be talking animal movies out there worse than this one, sure, but this is the worst one I personally have seen. If I've seen a worse one than this, I cannot remember it. Now, this is a pretty bold statement to make, and it isn't a statement I intent to leave unfounded.
We'll start with the most obvious of flaws, the very DESIGN of the film. It has been said that one should not judge a book by its cover, but it turns out you can judge a DVD by its packaging. One look at the misshapen mongrels on the back of the
Supreme CourtA couple people have asked about my reaction to the Supreme Court Rulings so I though I'd make a post about it. I'm not going to be getting into any debates or arguments becuase I simply don't have the time. This is just my two cents.Supreme Court3 months ago in Personal More Like This
For some reason, I don't feel terribly worried about the fate of Christians. For me it's an opportunity to stand firm because the Bible says count it on joy when we encounter challenges like these. God is going to use it mature, unify and purify the church. He is going to separate real believers from false ones too like separating oil from water.
I'm very clear on Facebook about my position but my pro-gay friends still talk to me sooo, seems they respect my position. I've known some of them for years and I doubt politics would easily get in the way.
I however, still mentally prepare myself for the loss of friends and family through disagreement. It's just a reality we deal with living in this world and standing firm for Jesus our High Priest. Jesus

Must say it’s a little odd to say that I have read all the books of a series I have loved since childhood… Final. Done. No more… Well, not quite. I am now reading the three companion books: Redwall’s Winter Tale, The Great Feast and Cookbook.
(BTW, am I the only one who thinks a vermin version of the Cookbook would be awesome? They could have literally Blood’n’Vineger with Black Pudding and Balsamic Vinegar, a Corsair recipe to mock the Long Patrol’s motto. Something with Pike for Cluny…hmm, what else?)
(BTW Number 2: There isn’t any ‘villains’ in those three companion books are there? Not more portraits to add to the Redwall villain list, haha!)
I was quite surprised that some of these books that I hadn’t read before were really good. That sounds terrible, but after the disappointme
Top 5 most annoying things about bronies.As of late I've noticed that many, many more people are becoming bronies. Note that before you continue reading, I do not hate bronies. I merely find them annoying. They could take many steps to be less annoying and then I could tolerate them, but they refuse. Maybe if I give them the reasons I want them to leave me alone, they'll change. Probably not. But it's worth a shot.Top 5 most annoying things about bronies.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Number 5: They're everywhere, and they want you to know it.
Most fandoms either stick to their own areas while in fan mode, and don't make it hugely apparent that they belong to a particular fandom while they wander the internet. Bronies do neither of these things. They will speak about their ponies and the newest episode and all that cutesy stuff right in the middle of a forum that's about an 18 year old game full of blood and violence. The same discussion will be happening in the comments section of a video where it just so happens the person who voice acts the main character of the game being played in the video
Tom Preston is Wrong[ Follow-up Journal Here: http://mpsai.deviantart.com/journal/Tom-is-Wrong-Again-Lessons-Inside-314918601 ]Tom Preston is Wrong3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I don't usually do call out threads, but today I'm feeling sassy. Besides, the subject of this journal, TomPreston, blocked me a while back. I guess for being a "troll"?
I had seen his comics on the front page nearly every day and didn't think much of them, however after he wrote A Harsh Lesson I began to critique his work. Partially because I wanted to see if he'd practice what he preached (he doesn't) but mostly because he has the ear of many young artists and is sending them many bad messages. Over time critiquing him became an exercise for myself on the nature of comic making, and I got into interesting conversations with various people in the course of posting them.
I stuck to mostly his long-form comic work, and stuck mostly to critiquing writing and occasionally the art.
It came to a point where he seeme
Disney layoffs, 2D animation, and youA very nervous animation student (he didn't say, but I assume he is studying 2D animation) asked me about my opinions on the state of animation these days. What are the companies thinking with laying off all the employees, not doing 2D animation, canceling great TV series, etc.? Are the business people just evil? AND the even bigger question: Is John Lassiter a jerk (or worse) for letting all the 2D animators at Disney go yesterday?Disney layoffs, 2D animation, and you3 years ago in Personal More Like This
MY ANSWER: I have a slightly controversial (for an artist) perspective on businesses and business people. Over all, I like them. At times, I have even been grateful for them. (Steady paychecks should never be taken for granted. Wait till you don't have one one day, then you'll know!) Remember, we live in a world where businesses are expected to make money to stay alive. It's called capitalism. Others call it "business". That means, the animation world isn't any different from any other job/company
FailureWell, this is awkward.Failure4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, I guess my plan had some minor flaws. Namely that when you tie up deviantART staff with yarn and lock them in their office supply closet, they can use scissors and letter openers to break free. I even put a mirror on the inside of the door to confuse them! How did they know that was the way out? They're some smart humans.
They broke free, activated their laser pointers, and regained control of the servers and databases while we were dreadfully distracted. Now, everything is back to normal on deviantART. Worst of all, they said we "were very, very bad" and that they were "disappointed in us". That guilt is hard to live with, my friends.
We're back to drawing board now. No, we won't give up hope of total world domination. We're so close, I can feel it! Watch out, world! This isn't the last you'll see of FUR.
But world domination will have to wait until another day. Who's ready for a cat nap?
FrozenIf this movie could have a tagline, it would be "Fuck Winter."Frozen2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Except not, because this is a Disney film. Despite being gnawed up and spat out by committee very obviously, Frozen manages to hold its own and become a very solid film overall despite its numerous obvious flaws.
Anyone who does a little digging knows how much a Disney film changes from it's first idea to the final product. Frozen is based off of a fairy tale called The Snow Queen and the original concept art had it much darker and probably a few shades more intelligent than what it turned into later. It sacrificed quite a bit of the story and the plot is very bare bones, much to the chagrin of literature lovers everywhere. It's also very rushed and several things that should have been key elements (the magic trolls, the bad guy) seem like they were included last minute for no real reason and the plot could have advanced without them, or with simpler contrivances in their place. Some of the characters seem to exist only for
Monster's ULittle by little, the stigma of "animated movies are for KIDS!" is being buried alive in a shallow grave. We've all grown very comfortable with animated shows that aren't for kids, The Simpsons and SouthPark are two notable examples that have been around for decades, and the rise of the ever popular "Adult Swim" lineup, Futurama, and various now popular animes cement the concrete headstone in place over this backwards notion that cartoons aren't meant to be enjoyed by adults.Monster's U2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Surprisingly, however, it's taken some time for feature length theatrical animated movies to actually catch up to their TV show counterparts in the age-range department. While most animated movies CAN be enjoyed by adults and have a few nods in them "for the parents," by and large a lot of them are still made very much for kids, or for teenagers at best. The stop motion crowd with Coraline, Frankenweenie and Paranorman are obvious exceptions geared to a slightly older audience, but when was the last time there was

Common Misconceptions: Traditional ArtFirst of all, hello! It's been almost a year since I contributed a blog post to this lovely group so I want to say hi I'm back folks! I have a lot of artsy things to share with you all that I've learned (and am still learning) so hang on tight! While I was thinking what to write as my first topic, I decided to kind of go back to the beginning as far as our thinking as artists goes in the creation process. I've come up with a short series called "Common Misconceptions" just to debunk some myths and misguided trends that are so often part of what we experience as we grow. This first "Common Misconceptions" topic will focus on traditional art.Common Misconceptions: Traditional Art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
