Disney's FROZENHey everyone!Disney's FROZEN8 months 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.

Colorists and Clean-Up Artists Wanted!Hey, all you lovely folks!Colorists and Clean-Up Artists Wanted!2 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
Update: Disney Animation!*Blows the dust off my front page*Update: Disney Animation!2 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!
Goodbye Nostalgia CriticAnd so the Nostalgia Critic has become nostalgia itself...Goodbye Nostalgia Critic2 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

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 Art2 years ago in Personal More Like This

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 review4 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
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 you1 year 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
Tom Preston is Wrong[ Follow-up Journal Here: http://mpsai.deviantart.com/journal/Tom-is-Wrong-Again-Lessons-Inside-314918601 ]Tom Preston is Wrong2 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

The Three problems with how we learn art: pt.1 I've been thinking about how and why we learn to draw for a few years now. I started self-analazing my own drawing and character design thought process when I began writing my first art instruction book, "Creating Characters with Personality". It was harder than I thought to verbalize how I've learned and how I process drawing. This has led me to start looking back at my artistic life and how I learned art. What made me learn the most? What drove me to draw and stick with it? What led to others I knew as a child to stop drawing? I think I'm ready to present some of those thoughts here on DA and hear what you think. So, this is part 1 of three in a series. I'm not sure where this is leading, but step one is my establishing an online art instruction school called Taught ByA PRO (www.taughbyapro.com) that will (in phase one) concentrate on drawing instruction for all forms of media. Here we go:The Three problems with how we learn art: pt.18 months ago in Personal More Like This

click here to know what I'm talking about
I have this comic that I started doing about 2 summers ago called Welcome to Hell which I never have time to update. I somehow managed to get 2 DDs out of it. Some of you may remember it, some of you may not, some of you have been helping me develop the idea since I first joined deviantArt. Some of you are loyal followers for reasons I can't fathom but nonetheless I'm grateful for your interest, feedback, and support. So I guess I kind of owe it to you guys to let you follow my progress on my senior thesis film, should you like to!

Mini Character Design interviewSomeone that is working toward her thesis in Character Design asked me for a mini interview. Here's the interview, for those who are interested:Mini Character Design interview2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When did you start with character design and what motivated you?
WHEN I WENT TO CALARTS, ONE OF THE CLASSES I HAD WAS A "CHARACTER DESIGN" CLASS. MIKE GIAMO, WHO IS A GREAT TALENT, TAUGHT IT. I HAD ALWAYS LOVED DRAWING CHARACTERS AND MAKING UP MY OWN, BUT SOME OF THE PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN HE TAUGHT US REALLY OPENED MY EYES TO HOW MUCH MORE I NEEDED TO LEARN. I GOT HOOKED IN THAT CLASS, BUT IT WASN'T UNTIL YEARS LATER, WHILE AT DISNEY ANIMATION, THAT I STARTED TO ACTUALLY DO CHARACTER DESIGN PROFESSIONALLY.
What are your main resources for inspiration?
ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING. I LOVE GREAT ANIMATION STYLE ARTWORK SO I HAVE A LARGE COLLECTION OF OTHER ARTISTS' SKETCHBOOKS AS WELL AS MOST ALL OF THE "ART OF" DISNEY, SONY, DREAMWORKS, AND PIXAR BOOKS. THEN THERE IS THE IN

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?

Now for those of you who are still here, we'll get into the meat and potatoes of WHY it sucked. We begin our "story" (I put this in quotations because it's more of a collection of hackneyed tropes than a plot in itself) with a young girl of indeterminate age whose mother has just passed away, and is going to go stay with her estranged scientist father who is living alone in a huge old house that he can inexplicably afford despite having a "destroyed" career and nobody to support him financially. His life's work is to find a tribe of tiny little people in the woods that he swears exists, and his daughter is understandably skeptical.
Of course, SPOILER ALERT the tiny little fucks DO exist and not only that, but the two tiny tribes,

As far as I know, these are teaser prototypes. I'm not very much part of the toy process--- I designed the characters (as seen in the art on the background piece) for animation, and the talented Hasbro artists did the sculpts, so I'm not sure what the final toys will look like. For anyone curious, I DO know they are working on versions with rooted, comb-able hair, so don't go throwing out your little, plastic, heart-shaped
