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.

Ignition Crisis Next Generation StoryIgnition Crisis Next Generation Story so farIgnition Crisis Next Generation Story2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So here is a summary of the overall story for Ignition Crisis Next Generation! Hooray!
Next Generation takes place 30 years after the events of Ignition Crisis, and focuses on Carl and Sarah's children, prominently their Daughter, Elena Nadez, and her adventures. While things do indeed happen in between the two, this gives a more precise time frame. Anyway back to story.
NG starts up with Elena graduating College. she spends about a month trying to find a career that would suit her, however the jobs offered to her seemed boring and not worth her time. She is approached by her professor to come with him and a group of students to Central America for a research project. Among the students going is Vince, someone Elena had a relationship while in College. He sign on in hopes to be with Elena again and patching up their relationship, however when they reach the country, they are split up into different towns. Elena is housed at a Local fisherman
E3 Thoughts Day 3Wii Fit TrainerE3 Thoughts Day 32 years ago in Personal More Like This
You know, I was on the fence about the new Smash Bros game. Even with Mega Man I didn't really see anything remarkable about the game to peak my interest. But then when Nintendo unveiled the Wii Fit personal trainer as a playable character? F**k Yeah! Bludgeon your opponents to death with YOGA moves? That's the sort of nonsensical whimsy that I think was sorely lacking from this version of franchise. Count me in!
Still not sure how the 3DS and Wii U version are going to interact with each other, if at all. Iwata has said that the 3DS will have different stages, so that suggests that they aren't compatible. But then, if they're not compatible, why put out 2 games at once? Frankly, I like the idea of being able to play against Wii U opponents from the comfort of my 3DS. That would be really cool, but I don't know if that's a thing they're looking to do or not. Hmm..
PS: Maybe it's just me, but I found it rather hilarious how all the characters were practicing Yoga
Texas Abortion Bill FilibusterIn case you live outside the USA and haven't heard of this yet, Texas was preparing to vote on a radical bill that would effectively outlaw abortions within their boarders. Senator Wendy Davis came in early in the morning with the expressed intent of filibustering: The goal being to delay the critical vote.Texas Abortion Bill Filibuster2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wendy Davis talked for 11 hours straight. No food. No drinks. No bathroom breaks. She couldn't even pause for a moment to take a sip of water or else she'd give up the floor and the vote could get underway. 11 hours straight she talked and just before the midnight cutoff she was interrupted, and the vote began... only to become absolute pandemonium as the crowd watching protested the interruption.
The GOP insists that the vote carried and passed, while the Democrats insist that they were still taking votes after the midnight cutoff thanks to the chaos that ensued. This is going to be one of those instances where the GOP are gonna try to lie and shove their way through our diplomatic

Educating OurselvesThis journal contains a lot of potentially buzz-work things that could result in arguments from people who don't take the time to read my message. For example I mention Anita Sarkeesian, but I don't want people to start arguing against her points of view because that's NOT what this journal is about. So please, read carefully before you respond to help avoid knee-jerk reactions since that's exactly what this journal is about trying to AVOID.Educating Ourselves1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years I’ve had a pretty straightforward view on gun control. Guns are dangerous and need to be restricted and made more inaccessible to prevent future acts of gun violence. I’ve never genuinely believed in the idea of banning all guns because I do think people DO need to have ways to protect themselves.
However, I’ve recently been thinking more about a different aspect to the gun control debate and it’s broader implications to other troublesome politically charged areas of our (United States) cult

One of the things I hate about the internet is that everything must be quantifiable. Without a proper source, no one will believe you, no matter how reliable your original info was when you received it. It doesn't matter if you heard it from a professor giving a lecture in college, if you read it in a book, read a report by a scientist, or saw a documentary that went into elaborate detail... if there isn't an internet equivalent, then you're seen as a compulsive liar.
Case in point, recently someone mentioned that my sketches look better than my finished artwork and I responded by telling them that there was science that helped back up why that phenomenon exists. But since I couldn't remember the source, I got trolled hardcore for saying that. Today, however, I stumbled upon a close enough equivalence. Here's a quote:
The sketchiness of line art mimics the natural lack of clarity in our peripheral vision. When we look at the real wo
Proving your Geek CreedNerds all share a unified experience of being socially ostracized from the rest of other so-called "normal" societal groups. The reasons may vary (not being good at sports, liking a certain sci-fi/fantasy TV show, etc), but the fact that we all were picked upon and marginalized during our most formable years is a major part of the nerd/geek identity. But in recent years nerd culture stopped being it's own niche thing, and has started to seep into mainstream culture. Making nerd culture more accessible has naturally brought with it a new group of people and fans into our sphere... and not everyone is happy about this development.Proving your Geek Creed2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Personally I think it's great that nerd culture has become so widely accepted lately. I can freely have a discussion about my favorite DC or Marvel superheros in public without getting looks of disgust or incredulity because EVERYONE loves Batman and The Avengers. And if I make an obscure joke about Doctor Who, there's a LOT of people who will get it now. But l

Edit 2: People have asked if your app has to be in AT style, since people have trouble drawing in the style. Well, worry no more, here's a helpful how-to! http://www.scribd.com/doc/14686737/How-to-Draw-Adventure-Time Click the download to see it, it has 16 slides and explains how to draw and apply the AT physics. Thanks so much to Fathix for providing it, I'm sure that everyone will benefit from it <3
Edit: I've been seeing a lot of people using umbrellas and swods for weapons, please be creative
Generally, an app drawn similar to AT style is preffered, but not required (however, keep in mind that an app drawn similar to AT style will have an edge over one that doesn't).
When making your character, please keep in mind that interaction with Canon
Controversial OpinionsYou know, sometimes having opinions can make you feel like no one else shares your views, especially if your views aren't being widely vocalized around you. Case in point: It's just been announced that J.J.Abrams will be directing Star Wars 7, and the internet is raging with butthurt about how shitty Abrams is, making over abundant lens flare jokes, and bemoaning the reboot of Star Trek in the process.Controversial Opinions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thing is... I like J.J.Abrams. I liked LOST (despite it's shitty/rushed ending). I liked Super 8. I liked Cloverfield. I even enjoyed the recent Star Trek reboot and am looking forward to the sequel. I never had a problem with lens flares or noticed them being over used. And I think overall Abrams has made a fairly consistent batch of quality movies, which is a amazing considering how many directors flip flop between great and shitty.
But I can't often come right out and say that sort of thing because when I do I get attacked for having an opinion that runs counter to the vast majority o

We're working right now on categorizing everything in the archives, so you can browse just the stuff you want to look at and not have it be this clusterf**k of everything hodgepodged together. We should have something ready for viewing within the next few days.
What I am going to do differently this time around is not conform to a set release schedule. I'm gonna make the comics as I feel like it and as the jokes come to me. Hopefully, without the pressure of a constant release schedule I can work more on refining the artwork and making sure nothing is rushed out.
Having said that... please keep in mind this is still a series of silly low-brow cartoon strips so... don't be expecting DaVinci level art here or anything. SYAC has never been a series where the art was meant to look like a DC comic book, an

Age: 15 [new generation introduction age]
[However, we see him grow from a young child to an adult]
Hometown: Littleroot Town
Nero is a fifteen year old boy who lives with his grandfather in Littleroot Town located in the Hoenn region. He lost his mom during the early years of his life, and his father has been missing since he was 5 years old, after going to a journey through the sea and had sunk the board.
His grandfather, Darren Heartly, is the only family remaining that he has. His grandfather is also a famous Pokemon trainer, who has taught everything there is to know about Pokemon to Nero. Since Nero was a child, his grandfather always told him of his adventures. He told him about how many Pokemon he saw and caught, as well as all the battles and

Dust and CobwebsGood morning creeps!Dust and Cobwebs2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've finally finished moving all of my strange antiques into the new house I'm sharing with Mr. Cain. We've painted, and installed all of our modern conveniences into this lovely circa 1900 house.
I've been waging war on the dust and cobwebs since moving, and the spiders... you would not believe. I found their mother lurking in the most frightening of all places... the hard-to-reach crevice behind the toilet. It was a horrific fight, she being about the size of my entire hand, but I've managed to purge the house.
The house itself is strange. It's not very big, but it's the biggest house I've ever lived in. It has mysterious tiny doors that don't open, a cupboard under the stairs, fireplaces in every room, and tall ceilings (which is good, because Mr. Cain has the proportions of Slender Man). I'm already imagining the kind of hobgoblins who lurk in the walls and the monsters in the attic because something has to be making those noises at night...
I'm looking forward
