Excellent article on Art Schools by Steve MooreGo read this article by fellow Calarts Alum, Steve Moore, on the Flip Animation magazine blog. Its a great eye-openner to what I've been preaching for awhile now: A degree doesn't matter in art, its what you can draw/create that does!

Some Thoughts.Tournament ObservationsSome Thoughts.6 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ive been in art tournaments of the DeviantART sort for a while, observing, competing and administrating ever since July 07. Doesnt sound like much, but I am assured by my friends that this makes me at the very least a Veteran in the Tournament scene. So! With that in mind, Id like to take this opportunity to bitch and whine about problems with tournaments Ive seen, and to praise to the high heavens innovation and whatnot in the various tournies that pop up from time to time. This is mainly to do with Tournament establishment and administration; have a gander if you like.
This was streamlined from Deathdog3000s list. Credit to her! And to my plethora of helpers at RoninRubbish and PCBCChat. Contribute and comment, please!

This should be self-evident. Obviously, your judges in particular should be totally free from bias, and preferably people known in the tournament s
Spook Chateau OCTYou've been invited to a contest-filled costume party, at a huge, creepy castle, on the spookiest night of the year- what could possibly go wrong? It's a dead man's party that'll change your life.. as well as your body.Spook Chateau OCT3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
#SpookChateau is a creativity-encouraging original character tournament set in an undefined place or era. There are very few restrictions to start off with, and even less into the game.
For more information on what original character tournaments are and how they work, check out this FAQ!
Characters start off human... and turn into monsters. Not just monsters, but monsters resulting from their spooky Halloween party dress-up outfits. Everyone likes playing dress-up for a day... but permanently?
It's not just about fighting. Spook Château isn't a “tournament within a tournament.” model. While you can have exciting fight scenes, you can also choose to have differ
My Two cents on Portfolio ReviewsYou know, I see quite a bit of portfolio on a regular basis, and even more so when I go to comic con and CTN.My Two cents on Portfolio Reviews2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This time around was the same thing, I saw quite a few portfolios. Some good ones and some that miss the mark.
There were a few in particular that caught my eye.. a few extremely good ones, and a few that just didn't work, and I wanted to try and share my opinions about portfolios in general.
This is just my point of view, based on MY experience and definitely not a definitely law, rule, or "must do". Just what I noticed in many student's and young professional's portfolios.
The first thing that strikes me is how similar portfolios can be from one student to another..I can almost always tell when one student is from Art Center, San Jose State, Otis, Sheridan or any other major school. It's a good thing and a bad thing. Mainly a bad thing though
Just a few personal thoughts on portfolios since I just came back from comic con and saw a ton over there.

It's really choppy and suuuuuper scribbly because I took like 30 seconds to draw each frame. Please fill in the gaps and gloss over the art with your wonderful imagination! I made it in Windows Movie Maker which is an absolutely evil program =o=
I'll try to fix up the ugly pictures and maybe add some color when I have time, and reupload another version later :b (don't know when though.) For now feel free to watch this one and laugh at it huhuhu

booths and shows and thingsHello! Are you still alive? Is anyone still alive?booths and shows and things2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The major thing I have to announce is that I will be sharing a book at CTN Animation Expo in Burbank! I've never had a booth at anything, ever, but I've wanted to for years. I'm so profoundly nervous! If anyone has any advice for making sketchbooks or buttons or whatever normal people sell at these kinds of things, I would love to hear it!
A couple months ago I started work as a story revisionist on Gravity Falls : ) So that has been taking up the majority of my time, though I'm still developing personal work on the side (very much on the side, frustratingly--did you know that in life, you also have to eat, sleep and move around?)
Once again I do have to admit sheepishly that I mostly update my tumblr now: http://arythusa.tumblr.com
Let's Talk--Professor Ratigan and Detective BasilHey guys! So I'm starting this new thing called Let's Talk. I'll probably do once a week. Let's Talk will have me discussing different topics that interest me at the moment, and I would like to hear other's point of view about it, so we can have discussions, fandoms, and/or friendly debates about it. So, let's get started!Let's Talk--Professor Ratigan and Detective Basil2 years ago in Personal More Like This

So as you can probably guess, this week's topic is: The Great Mouse Detective!! I LOVE this movie!! It's just so brilliant!! The characters are so much fun, the adventure always keeps you on your toes, and there's a whole barrel of laughs along the way. Funny thing is, I never was a GMD fan growing up (maybe beca

So TwilightMom and I had seen Breaking Dawn last weekend, and then decided to look at Eclipse again today. And then while watching it we had the best conversation ever.So Twilight3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Mom: ... I mean, shoot, imagine the stories he'll be telling her kid (Renesmee) when she's older.
Me: It'd be one messed up collection of family stories...
Mom: "I was going to kill you, but then I imprinted on your baby face and it was all good."
Me: "Your parents and I used to be a major love triangle."
Mom: "I used to lay awake at night fantasizing about your mother."
Me: "I once force-kissed your mom on the beach. Shirtless."
Mom: "I should have known all along that it was your unfertilized egg I was so smitten with."
Me: "I once told your father I was hotter than him."
Mom: "I once cuddled with your mom in a tent in the middle of a blizzard. And your dad was right there. Watching."
Life of PiWhen this film came out, I felt the most accurate descriptor of it was "Castaway but with a tiger." I've since changed my mind. It's really more like Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner but with a tiger. Hailed as a visual masterpiece, the effects actually range from incredibly believable to 'Chronicles of Narnia' in terms of how real the animals look. Much like the book it was based on, the film's one biggest flaw stems from having too much sitting around on a boat in between the awe-inspiring bits.Life of Pi2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The story follows a boy called 'Pi' and his exciting journey across the Pacific ocean. When Pi's father, who owns a zoo, decides to pack the family and the animals up to move to Canada, things go horribly awry when their ship sinks and only Pi and a small handful of animals escape on a life raft. Little by little, the animals fight to the death on the cramped boat, leaving only Pi alive... and a bengal tiger.
The animals, including the tiger, were all rendered in CGI in lieu of actually putting a

The Most Amazing ChainMailSaw it, had to share it xDThe Most Amazing ChainMail3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Hello. My name is not Teddy. It's Richard. I am dead. I am also very talented because I am typing this even though I'm dead. Since I'm dead, I did what every dead seven year old boy would do. I typed up this nifty chain-letter on deviantART. Okay, here we go.
I am Richard. Once you read this, you cannot stop, even though it's very possible for you to simply move your eyeballs away and move on the the next comment.
I died peacefully while in a coma, but, despite that, I have no eyes and blood all over my face that I apparently am not able to wipe off. Anyway, if you don't post this to -INSERT RANDOM NUMBER HERE- pages I will do nothing because I am dead. So please post this chain letter because, like I said, I will do nothing to you and you don't want that to happen because I am a dead seven year old boy named Richard.
Chain letters suck. Don't spread 'em, please."
A Message From Your Feline OverlordsA Message From Your Feline Overlords3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Letters from Medieval NovgorodHave you seen the cache of medieval birch-bark letters from Novgorod Russia? They date from around 900 to around 1400 and are absolutely charming. Because Novgoroders were a very literate people thanks to a school founded in 1030 by Prince Yaroslav the Wise, we have legal documents, shopping lists, love letters, and even a child's writing exercises and drawings. The child was a boy of about 6 or 7 named Onfim who lived around 1260 and imagined himself to be a warrior, judging by his drawings.Letters from Medieval Novgorod5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Novgorod was founded as a trading post by Varangian Vikings and remained an important trading center throughout the Middle Ages. One of the most important Medieval fairs in Europe was the Fair at Novgorod.
BoxtrollsIt's very seldom you see a film go out of its way to make so many of its characters visually unappealing and still have them command themselves with an unmistakable air of charisma. Even though the characters lovingly display each little greasy hair or smear of dirt, there are many of them you could stand to hug- even if you can almost smell the cheese on them.Boxtrolls6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Our story takes place in a town called Cheeseridge, a little dairy-centric town that's full of delicious puns and scary looking monsters called Boxtrolls. The boxtrolls live in a commune underground and come out at night to scavenge for trash and spare parts, which they use to create beautiful inventions of their own. The town is disgusted by them and fears them, despite their harmless, bug-eating nature.
Our main character is a filthy little orphaned child who is raised by the Boxtrolls, and the story follows his quest to clear their reputation before the town's exterminators polish the last of them off.

SkyfallSomething has happened to me that I previously thought was unthinkable.Skyfall2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I fell in love with a James Bond movie.
I had gone through life until now only vaguely glancing up when trailers for previous Bond films came on the tv and having only basic common knowledge of the character and his world but having no interest in exploring him further.
During a quiet day when my family and I were looking for anything to watch, I did see Casino Royale on Sky Box Office a few years ago and quite enjoyed that but didn't bother with Quantum of Solace due to all the poor reviews it got.
Then last week with all of us off work, it being three months since we had last been to the cinema and with all the good reviews it was getting, my family said, "Hmm, might as well check out Skyfall."
I am SO glad we did! I can't go really indepth without going into spoilers and seriously this is a movie you do not want to spoiled on but I will say that Skyfall had me completely hooked throughout the whole film with rea
