Update: Disney Animation!*Blows the dust off my front page*Update: Disney Animation!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hey guys! It's been a while since I've updated my journal. I have some wonderful news to share.
I'm going to be working at the Walt Disney Animation Studio as a visual development trainee! It's been a dream of mine to work as an artist at Disney feature since I was a little girl and I can't believe it's actually happening. I'm extremely happy to start and I can't wait to meet all the amazing people who work at Disney and absorb as much as my mind can absorb. Woo!

Ok we're back, sorta. School is a terrible environment for art. And I have a lot of people who can vouch for that XD Anyway, the point is, I won't be working on it at 10 a day. Not for now, anyway. What is going to happen instead, is, I'll be drawing the remaining Pokemon first, then :IconAldenlite: will vector them. After that I'll color them all at one go, and you guys will see the complete collection. About time, I know. It's coming to the end of a school term, after which I have a week to rush up my homework, and of course, the project. Hopefully I can get it up by then.
Anyway due to the new sequence of actions, we'll actually need 3 progress bars to handle this.
Sketched: 644/725 (Reuniclus)
Vectored: 600/725 (Seismitoad)

It seems yet again we're not out of the threat from SOPA, to understand what I mean please read this journal that I have copied from :iconsoniclegends: below and.
Some might think that this whole SOPA/PIPA/ACTA thing is no big deal, specially those who lives outside the country, but notice that many websites such as youtube,facebook,even DA and many many more are part of this country, so indeed, this will affect even for people like me living all the way up here in Norway.We have to do whatever it takes to stop these people from commencing their plans and letting theire law prevail! We must inform our government, school,work,everywhere to minimize their threat and hopefully stop them from getting bigger influence. They're literally taking our freedom if we just let this go unseen, so please do your best and spread this message across to wherever u are and whatever u use and to whoever u know, the more people/community stand against this injustice, the bigger is the

What I get asked about the most is how one can prepare, or educate themselves for a career as an animator. This is a VERY long winded conversation, with many facets. I don't want to bore everyone with a massive wall of text here, so I will focus on probably the most important part. -- The part about finding a JOB (either after graduating from animation school, or coming in from another position) as an animator.

Therians/Otherkin; misconceptions and the truthRecently I have had some strong feelings on the matter of therianthropy/otherkin and have been searching for the will to type it out in a coherent way.Therians/Otherkin; misconceptions and the truth5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Please keep in mind that these are just my thoughts and opinions. I am not trying to pass them off as LAW or EXACTLY what it is, just what I think. Try to keep drama and retardation to a minimum please.
What is therianthropy?
Therianthropy is a spiritual belief which can be very wide and diverse in its interpretation. As with any group of people it has its 'extremists' who put the rest of them to shame and creates a stereotype.
Therianthropy seems to be a derivative of shamanism the likes of which was practiced by ancient American indians and possibly other cultures.
The most common 'types' of therianthropy out there are as such:
Totems and spirit guides
Some therian's define their spirituality through animal totems and spirit guides. Spiritual entities separate from themselves that shape and g

How to beat procrastination (part 1)As I said on a previous submission, I'm planning to make some tutorials on the upcoming December. Before that, however, I feel like I can help on another subject, which comes before even starting your drawing: Procrastination. I mean, procrastination towards your own drawings.How to beat procrastination (part 1)1 month ago in Deviant Events More Like This
If you're not familiar with this word:
pro-cras-ti-na-tion |prəˌkrastəˈnāSHən, prō-|
"the action of delaying or postponing something."
Why am I talking about this?
Well, a year ago I used to be a professional procrastinator. I've imposed the 365 Days of Doodles challenge to myself for this particular reason.
While procrastination is to some degree a natural phenomenon and can’t be completely eradicated, you can use the following strategies to get in the habit of getting drawings done.
Mind that these are not golden rules or such, just strategies that work fo

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way, no rigid process you must adhere to, no shoulds or shouldn'ts except those you designate for yourself. This is one of the fun parts of being an artist, really - have a heady good time with it.

How to beat procrastination (part 2)Most of the excuses for not drawing is lacking of ideas. On part 1 of this journal I explained why I find it useful to keep a notebook with you, and to write down your ideas whenever possible.How to beat procrastination (part 2)3 weeks ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This second part is about developing the habit of drawing. Hope you find it useful!
Create the habit of drawing
First thing to know about creating new habits is that it works kinda like inertia law:
"An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion."
Which means that the more you postpone your drawings the more you'll feel like delaying them. This procrastination abyss can be endless. For instance, I didn't draw anything in 2013 until the end of August when I bought my fi

Today, I'm doing some "advertising" for different websites I found interesting through my exciting papercraft-searching journeys on the web!
There will be a lot of links, so, be ready!
This is a website I check every day, since it is updated every single day since 2006. Impressive isn't it? There are more than 9500 models listed in this blog!! If you want a specific model, just type it in the searching bar and you can be lucky! Or you can simply browse it, like you would do on 9gag!
214 pages of listed models. This is a useful website for searching and classify models.
