Awesome job to everyone, and best of luck in the judging process.

Devious Journal EntryFalling Stars will shine so brightDevious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When the world is still at night
Moon will fade and Sun will die
When we come when dreams are high
Into Darkness all will fall
From planets great to seeds so small
Nightingale will cease its song
When evil wins it will be strong
But where there's night there is day
Where there's a will there's a way
Where darkness is there's always light
Given the chance it will shine bright
Hope may be so frail and shy
But as long as there's good it will never die,
So follow your dreams and look to the sky
For that is where I shall be when dreams are high
Yes, follow your dreams and look to the sky
For that is where I shall be when dreams are high

HTTYD Holiday Story / My Cookie Project ExperienceThe HTTYD holiday story will continue on Christmas DayHTTYD Holiday Story / My Cookie Project Experience3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are just 4 more parts!
My Cookie Project Experience
Today, I delivered the cookies to my neighbors, many of whom I don't know.
And if you remember my experiences last year, I encountered a couple of rude neighbors, lots of confounded ones ("Why are you giving away cookies to people you don't know???"), and some very heart-warming moments.
This year ….. I ended up playing Santa at most of the houses I visited ….
…. because I had to leave the containers with attached notes at the front doors.
And that was a bit disappointing to me, because I intended to use this experience to introduce myself and start to get to know the people that live around me. But most of my neighbors wouldn't answer their doors, even though people were home.
However, I did get to meet a few neighbors I didn't know, and they were very surprised and touched by the unexpec

Through different sites and several people I know on dA (including faster-by-choice), dA plans to go on strike tomorrow (or wednesday, but I'll do both) to go against the bill that is censoring pretty much most of the internet. The goal is that, tomorrow, don't log into dA. It's hard not to do, but I plan on doing it.
If you need proof, go search it up on google or any search engine. I've done it several times. If you don't want the internet to shut down, try one day of strike. that's about 12 hours from what I've heard.
Paranormal Activity at our School? Nah, just ghostOh my gosh, while we we're filming for our movie, my friends said that, "They heard something." Like a girl crying.Paranormal Activity at our School? Nah, just ghost4 years ago in Personal More Like This
At first I didn't believe it, I said to them that "Nah, it's only from the camera." So, we decided to record the sound, in tape!
In the right, that is me and in the left, it's my friend. The one who's recording the video was my other friend. And the others are leaning their backs at the door. (Which is, they didn't appear in the video)
Let's watch. After you watch it, be back here at my Journal and read the note below the link.
Now you see? Well, it's not like, "We're entertaining the ghost." I mean, we're silent at that time. No one spoke, only the laughter.
We're not doing this because we want to scare you, we just want you to see what we saw.
I only edited the "audio", because, I want to know what is the real meaning of that sentence.

The cult of Ookami (wolves) in ShintoIt may be too late, but today, I want to write about a day trip in Chichibu on 5th May.The cult of Ookami (wolves) in Shinto3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I went to Chichibu with a friend of mine. Chichibu is a country town of "a foot of mountains" which you can go and return in one day from Tokyo. It was the season of fresh green. Strong sunshine and fresh wind let people feel a change of seasons from a spring to a summer.
It was our purpose to look a religious service (the Shinto ritual), which is associated with the cult of Ookami (wolves) in Shinto. (Shinto is a traditional Japanese religion which has co-existed with Buddhism for over 1000 years in Japan.)
There are two creatures which were regarded as gods in Shinto -that is wolves and snakes. Chichibu was one of the most popular areas about the cult of wolves among Japan.
There is one episode in Japanese mythology. It was a story of one of heroes in Japanese mythology "Yamato-Takeru-no-Mikoto". When he lost his way in deep forest of Chichibu, one white wolf appeared before him. The wolf guide
Working @ UbisoftNot even kidding, though my contract is only for two months so far. I was offered a unique opportunity to work alongside experts in the industry, and was recruited for concept art, illustration, and storyboarding, bouncing around to see where I might fit with my toony style. It's only been day one so far, but I'm working right alongside professionals and get to learn from them first-hand. Pretty sure I'm still reeling. Obviously I can't tell you what we're working on due to confidentiality agreements, but it's pretty cool to see all the behind-the-scenes action my own self.Working @ Ubisoft2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, this does mean a significant stall in my (slow) progress on HAT, my animation-to-be. While working at LASALLE I literally spent every minute animating if I wasn't busy assisting teachers; now the only time I'll have to work on it will be when I get home, and on the weekends.

Change of Subjects!I'm getting that last journal out of the way cuz it's an eyesore. But if anyone asks me anything about The Seer, I'll ignore them. I'm leaving it behind for now. I will still write a few PnFs, "My sweet Melody" and "The chip Maker" being two of them, but as for "Ransom My Heart," That has now been shelved. It'll only be written as an IJ story.Change of Subjects!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Other than that, Comic! Squee! I have three pages done for it already! That will be posted very soon, heehee!
I can't wait to get this project started. I'm also making a Oncie plush that I may sell online if it turns out ok. I wanna make a Lorax too, since the ones in the stores are really ugly. 0__0
Okeh... I'm done! 8D
Back at LASALLEThat's right, after two eye-opening months, my stay at Ubisoft is over (... which is a shame, because they were offering a prize to the person who could prank their colleagues the best this April Fools!).Back at LASALLE1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It was a great experience; I got the chance to work on multiple projects in the company, doing everything from technical drawings, character concepts, to storyboarding and illustrations. I was constantly challenged to produce faster and better work, including some digital and matte paintings, which I still struggle with immensely. By the end of the two months I was finally getting a handle on things, but alas, all good things must come to an end. I wish I could share some of my work with you, but I am sworn to confidentiality.
I made some good friends while I was there; the art director is a friend to the animation program leader at LASALLE, and he purposefully challenged me to start practicing digital painting. I was sat next to the senior storyboard and concept ar

K, so for those who got a commission from me, I have completed three of them. I want to get all of them sketched out at least before doing the sending-by-mail stuff, but I promise it'll be done before I go home in June. I hope to get them all completed before June 12 so that I can post commissions open for traditional work. That way, I can do a few things while I'm at my parents' place.
Forgive me if it seems like I'm ignoring your commissions. I'm really not. By now you should all know how that my overly active imagination coughs up ideas like bullets, so I tend to have doodles of EVERYTHING all over the place.
So! My famous list of to do things before going home...
Keep posting Truffula Trove comic updates... and those will continue to be updated during my break at home, though I'm not sure how long, since I want to just spend time with my family

The two top ones are priorities for me. Since they're huge projects, I plan on challenging myself to complete them. The Lorax comic adventure will pretty much be an entire novel rolled into a comicbook. At first, I wasn't going to do it, but instead maybe just write it, but MBeau, kiki-kit and my dearie IJ co-creator encouraged me to do it. It'll give me a chance to practice some landscapes too, since most of the story takes place outside of Thneedville. And no, the story is
Veggietales anyone?I might be tossing it out in the blue here, but yah.Veggietales anyone?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I wrote a Christmas story for Veggietales two years ago. It's not long at all, and yeah, I kinda keep the idea of Petunia being Larry's... uh sorta girlfriend, mainly because the new episodes of the show kinda portray her that way. But I had wanted to write a good Christmas story, and Bob and Larry were perfect for the occasion.
Basically, Bob's Christmas plans kinda go... well not as he planned. His parents (yush, I went and gave him and LArry a bit of a BG xDD I can't help it, you know what I'm like) were supposed to come to the little town where he and Larry live, but something changes in his father's plans and evidently, Bob starts to ignore the reason of the season. So Larry, Junior and Petunia get the entire town together to make it a Christmas Bob won't forget.
This story is really aimed to kids, I tried staying true to the original veggitales morals with a little bit of my own style in it. It's also a heavily Christian orient

QnA Podcast SessionHey guys,QnA Podcast Session2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The VAs and myself are mighty busy this week, so there won't be any podcasting this evening. However, due to the drastic timezone differences having any sort of livestream would be impossible, as our only convenient times are midnight in the States, the early a.m. in Europe/UK, and just after noon for me.
As such, we'll only be able to answer questions you guys post here, in the Comments section of this journal, and then upload it as another vlog. We'll probably only be able to get around to another podcast next weekend, so you have a good while to ask us anything.
Bear in mind we won't repeat questions, and we probably won't be able to get through them all, but if there's anything you want to ask the VAs or even myself about Honour Amongst Thieves, the process, how they got the voices, the color of their socks, anything at all ... then now's the time to ask.
I will update you all with the podcast, whenever we do get around to it. You will be able to find it in the HAT

Also, try and spread this around to as many people as you can, to help Dan and his kids and also making a good deed for someone who's in need
