SWAMP THING: The Orchestral ScoreGot a weird treats for you all,SWAMP THING: The Orchestral Score3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For years, whenever I've been intensively drawing a comic project I often felt the need the write myself some music. I've found out multiplying my creative output mysteriously benefit them all. There is, usually, no link bridging my Comic and musical world. Some fugues and some String Quartet sketches have been paired with Batman Incorporated for instance.
This time, being so enthusiast for swamp thing, I went and wrote the scored for issue 7 & 8. OK, not really, but I've tried to cover their thematic stuff in a 3:16 of Full Orchestral Music.
Here a breakdown of the cues:
00:00 The timeless mystery of the Green
00:49 Growth and fate of the Green Warrior
1:36 The Rot
2:00 A bit of actionny big battle for those who got bored until now.
May you enjoy this roughs mix.

Missing the PointI've been noticing a trend lately where people seem to deliberately be missing the point behind stuff in order to complain. I used to think it was just me, as I watched people write up lengthy articles nitpicking and "debunking" a comic I made because they simply missed the point, but I've started seeing it happening to other people too.Missing the Point3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently over on The Oatmeal, artist Matthew Inman made a joke about guy gamers vs girl gamers. The joke was pretty simple: A guy gamer makes a mistake and gets bitched out by his fellow teammates online. Contrast to that, a girl gamer makes a mistake and her fellow teammates try to comfort her, tell her she's doing great, and make suggestive comments about hooking up. To me the joke was clear, guys treat girls differently online. However, that's not how the rest of the internet saw it...
From what I've read of the whole Oatmeal flare up, the reasons for the hate seem grounded in the fact he depicted the girl as blond and bubbly (ie: stupid) and not as
Michael Eisner: life and death of 2-D animationI was going to make this into a youtube video, but I just don't have the motivation to actually complete it. After doing a documentary on the history of Cel animation I thought it would be neat to tackle the death of 2-D animation in America, since I know a lot of people don't really understand how or why it all happened. This is a very condensed version of the past 20 years, most facts taken directly from Roy Disney's "Save Disney" website and the "Art of Animation" by Bob Thomas. I did my best to make sure all the facts listed below are as accurate as I can make them. This is a LONG post, but I think it's worth reading. I had to change a few words here and there to make it sound more like a journal instead of text being read for a video. It should also be noted that it primarily concerns ONLY mainstream American animation. ENJOY!Michael Eisner: life and death of 2-D animation4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Lesson ZeroHow about that third episode of MLP: FIM. I thought the pink one was suppose to be the crazy one. I do feel for twilight I was once like that myself, but then my health brought me back to reality, and my fiancee help out a lot. I do have to say was was not expecting this episode to out as great as it did. I still cannot wait for the return of Luna in the next episode.Lesson Zero4 years ago in Personal More Like This
On another note almost ready to put up my own fanfic, just wish I had some pre-readers. But hopeful some of my readers will give some good feed back.
Any way back to studying for midterms now.
'Falcon Punch'Captain Falcon's line delivery of 'fow-cone pawnch' is one of those things that, this many years later, shouldn't still be funny to me...and yet it is. It really, really is.'Falcon Punch'10 months ago in Personal More Like This
So even though Duck Hunt is my new character of choice in Smash (because COME ON, its existence alone in the game is a gleaming miracle of unexpected magnificence), I have still indulged in some Falcon Times, as well. Falcon Times are important.
And in playing a series of online matches as the good captain, letting loose a tireless (but maybe tiresome) tirade of 'FALCON PUNCHES' and 'FALCON KICKS' in his melodious voice for a couple rounds, I was surprised when one of the strangers I was fighting in the group then ALSO started playing as Captain Falcon, apparently converted by the captain's very loud, vocal gospel.
And then another.
And then all four of us, unspoken, ALL began playing as Captain Falcon out of some silent sense of solidarity, leading to what was simultaneously a furiously raging battle of fists and

I've got something special for today, for all of you who enjoy Team Awesome.
A Fan-fic story made by :iconcaustizer: that focus its attention around Night Twins, Luna and Dream. It is VERY well written and I found it so fitting, that if he actually make whole story I will make it cannon in my world of Team Awesome. He just know how to make those characters alive, something I will never be able to do if I try to write a Fan-fic.
Here you got Chapter ONE. There are three for now, but there will be more.
So I think you should GO there and read it. Or better, watch him as he will give you more of that story. I can assure you, you wont regret that.
Thank you for your attention and see you next time.

Something new.. not likely.At the end of the month I'll be removing my swords from that showcase what they let me to use in local library and I have decided to put all my stock swords into long term storage, as I need the space and I don't want to just move swords from one point to another and back again when they are in our way.Something new.. not likely.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm putting almost every sword into storage and yes, planning to make more of them. I'll tell about that later on. New Elucidator is basicly sold and Kurikara is still reserved for the DA user who commissioned it, BUT if she isn't getting the money together by 31.5.2013, I will sell it for anyone who gives me the money. I have given her time 6 months to pay it. It's plenty of time and I know that money isn't growing in trees. I do know that fact too well.
One good thing is that I return into work 6.5.2013. Not into my original work station, but I hope that I could return in there too soon. Work is work and they pays me to do my job. I have been layoffed around 3 months now, but I have s

(Yeah, that's right, I disappear for something like a month and the first thing you get from me is a fangirl rant. Typical.)
Let me explain you a thing. On tumblr, there are three main fandoms, known as SuperWhoLock. Supernatural, Doctor Who and Sherlock.
"Hiatus" is the name for the period of pure torture between seasons/series.
Now, at this very moment, all three of these fandoms are on hiatus for the same amount of time.
Hence, "The Hellatus".
When a fandom is on hiatus, some crazy shit comes out of the chaos. So three of the top and most insane fandoms? Eesh, you do not want to go there.
My dear watchers, I haven't much time to talk today but let me just tell you, six months (that's right, six months) without my three favourite shows. It's bad for most, it's torture f
Thank YouSo apparently some people enjoy my work. It's just... I just don't know what to say. I mean, I write kinda lot, but I don't really show my stories to anyone because... well, they suck. I need a lot of practice but sometimes I need a bit of encouragement to do so and now people actually like what I do. I don't know if every amateur artist feels the same way, but I feel like it's worth it. It's worth spending the night with writing down the crazy things my imagination draws up. If my dream can't be fulfilled and I can't be a real writer when I "grow up", I just wish to have people around me who I can entertain with these silly things.Thank You3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know there aren't so many people who put the stories into their favourites (Well, they really are few compared to some other artists here, but why should be there more? I have only two parts of the story on my dA yet.), but I'd like them to know that they made me the happiest person in the world and they still do and I would like to hug all of them. Thank

Nostalgia CriticBefore late 2010, I didn't even know the Nostalgia Critic existed. Everything changed when my brother sat me down to watch a particular video. And, like every other entertainment medium I consider myself a fan of, that was more than enough to rope me in and leave me wanting more. The very first NC review I ever watched, and the one that remains my favorite to this day, is his second review of the animated Titanic rip-off cartoon. So, as of today, I've been a fan of the Critic for close to two years. Like others who joined the fans around the same time as me, even later, I regret not knowing about this guy in 2007...So many missed events!Nostalgia Critic3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Of course, there's a huge vari

My dad, brother, and all of my friends know he's my favorite; even random strangers...If they talked to me for five minutes and Soul Eater was brought up, they'd know, too. I quote him relentlessly; I've discussed and poked fun at symmetry more now than I ever did in an actual art, math, or science class where the topic would be brought up as a homework assignment or lecture topic.
What I don't get, is why I'm so fascinated by him. Originally, I was convinced he was my favorite just because I love the 'symmetry' running gag so much. Yet, the more I think about it...I'm just absolutely intrigued by his world view and perspective: His symmetry obsession seems to manifest itself in a phobia, yet it stems from a stronger, overarching desire to keep the world in balance, as in good isn't overwhelmed by evil or vice versa. Considering his position, he carries a lot of responsibility and expectations on his s
