This pretty special~ http://youtu.be/IyZtXRNy5yY
Also, PCBC is over, sadly. I, and many others, loved it so.
I have to agree with the crit I've recieved from the judges, there are so many things that I need to improve on and their constant feedback is always appreciated!
I can safetly say that there has been major improvements in my grammar and some anatomy, thought they can still be pushed further.
Though, I was kind of sad that MikeMoroney couldn't fully finish his entry. This was the last round so I was kind of hoping they'd extend it again for him, but alas.
But yes, it was fun.
See you in IPL!
But for now, back to contracts and comissions!

So I visited PIXAR today!It was awesome! 8DSo I visited PIXAR today!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We spent about two hours there with one of their story artists, Adrian Molina. *u* Although the first 30 minutes we just all sat and talked and ate delicious burritos underneath a gorgeous painting from Toy Story 3.
Then he looked at my portfolio, which he liked quite a bit. He said I was twice as good as he was at my age, but I ought to loosen up my figures. Then he looked at my sketchbook, which he was super impressed with. He said I should just make my portfolio look more like my sketchbook, and I'd be a shoe-in at CalARTs. xD So that was super cool! He's super nice and says to email him with his portfolios or any art or questions and he'll give me suggestions. c:
After lunch he showed us a little bit of the studio (although we weren't allowed anywhere with actual work going on, which was too bad). But I got to see TONS of concept work for Brave, which looks pretty cool! I can't really disclose any info about it obviously, but it definitely looks a little better a
First Scene Previewhttps://vimeo.com/42477094First Scene Preview3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Phew. That lighting is hard. I think I will reserve it for more important shots.
Anyway, the first scene I've done of Fire Tiger vs Acid Panther. If anyone's curious.
I won't upload any more scenes, as I'd like the film to be at least a bit of a surprise.
Oh wait, I just realized there are a couple of frames cut off the end. Oh well, not missing much.
Fire Tiger Acid Panther is approved for productionYeah, there actually was a chance that with all that pre-production I'd already done, I might not have gotten to do it.Fire Tiger Acid Panther is approved for production3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But no. It's all good. Will start animating soon. Film is due November, also at which time I expect will be its internet exclusive release.
Again, if anyone's interested, lots of stuff for the film here: http://firetigeracidpanther.blogspot.com.au/
ALSO I can't tell you how happy it makes me to be getting all this Acid/Fire giftart and comments. I'm glad you guys like 'em, and I hope you like the film they star in.
These are awesome:
Unstable Cannibal Zombie Bunny NunsI recently learned that the stereotypical "Japanese Fan Girl" is not some sort of mythical sasquatch of popular culture. I know they exist because my work somehow attracted the attention of one.Unstable Cannibal Zombie Bunny Nuns3 years ago in Personal More Like This
She showed up online one day and started posting weird fan-art and (thanks to google translate) weirder messages.
It was amusing, if a little creepy. Especially when someone found a few pictures she had drawn of a decidedly underage version of myself being violated by tentacles.
I let that slide because, hey; she was a Japanese Fan-girl. They're innately odd.
But then it turned out she was actively following me around the internet, frequenting the same sites and forums as me. Specifically B3TA; a place where you really shouldn't go unless you speak English, have a tough skin and an understanding of serrated British humour.
Fan-girl did not, and was subsequently torn to shreds.
Despite everyone's advice, however (including mine and most of the B3TAns) she kept going back. As such, I don't have m
ATalkHappy Easter everyone! I feel like... I just want to talk today. Because I think there's things I've learned and feel and think that sometimes I just want to say.ATalk3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let's start with stories.
What I find great about any form of storytelling is how honest it is. There is no other form of shared knowledge that can teach us how to live our lives better. None. That being said, we see stories in everything. We look at a tree with a fence grown into it, and think of when the fence must have been built, who may have built it, etc. We see a couple arguing on the street and ponder as to what could have gotten them to this point. We hear a snapping twig in the woods, and plan our escape route from whatever magnificent beast lurks in the brush! As human beings, we LOVE stories. But why?
We love stories because they teach us how to live. Think about any good movie, book, or other story. It should have moved you in some way. Some stories teach us how to deal with the intense hardship

I will have to completely reorganise my breakfast schedule because of some overzealous admin. Usually I wake up, prepare nomnoms, settle in front of the computer and search for some morning drama. butthurtbrigade was one of my favourite places to acquire my morning dose of concentrated baawws. Now when it is gone I will be forced to actively search for the dramas elsewhere and I don't like that.
My breakfast should look like this:

What Spyro's Kingdom WasWe finally have visual of what the first game concept of what Spyro's Kingdom looked like.What Spyro's Kingdom Was3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Apparently, this game was originally going to be a MMORPG, in the Legend of Spyro-themed universe. The Portal of Power is mentioned, and we were going to have to use toys to play as our dragon characters in the game world. And just like Spyro's Universe, we customize our lairs. This game idea was proposed to Activision, but it was rejected.

You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time.
A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up. She's screaming your name. Your brother, so confused, runs to go tell Dad that "Mommy is crying and sissy won't wake up."

The results of Draw Tom Ripley contest
It has been 4 and a half months since I started holding my first contest Draw Tom Ripley Contest which is a long journey full of new experiences. The origin is just an idea to cope with many deviants who kept asking me for points since I won 5,000 points from Plan Gone Wrong Contest last year. I told them to draw me Tom Ripley first and I'd give them some points in return. After I had got 2 pieces, I started to think "why not make it as a contest? It's gonna be fun."

SZ: How about you start off by telling us who you are and a short history about your time on deviantART.
DiamonEyes: WOW! This is awesome! Alrighty, Allow me to introduce myself.
I am L. A. Zavala (aka, DiamonEyes) And I was was born a ghetto-ass town of Oxnard, California. A small area about an hour north Los Angeles. Growing up I wanted to try my hand in animation as an career, until I discovered I wasn't as "in love" with drawing as I thought I was. Photography was NOT my forte either, and in fact wouldn't even cross my mind until my Senior year in High School. My mentor responsible for getting me into photography was in fact my brother's best friend, who I still remain close friends with even up till today.
I've worked for around 17 years in photography and now have started getting into video/film editing. Photography IS in my blood and still my main love :iconkissingplz::iconkissinguplz:

THEME: an artwork of your animal friend
A bit of info to get you interested (or not): your pet, your family's pet or simply an animal you're closely connected to and like very much (like that special horse of your granddad's you like very much and love to ride for example), can be any animal, artwork can be b&w, in color, or both, a portrait, full body, you can be creative and original as you want, but your pet should be in focus, you can also enter with artwork of your an animal that isn't alive anymore. Always wanted to draw your dog named Rex with whom you spent so many wonderful years together, but somehow never actually got to finally draw him? Now's a good time.
