New deviantART ThumbnailsHey folks!New deviantART Thumbnails3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may remember a while back we showed off some brand new thumbnails in #hq's Journal. Well, after many weeks of porting and tweaking based on community feedback, we finally got these brand new thumbs ready for beta testing!
The new thumbnails
UPDATE (May 19, 2012): Based on feedback received, we've updated the new thumbnails to be justified. Thumbnails are now spaced out across the rows, making them flush against the left and right sides of the page. When a browser's window is too small, justification cannot happen without leaving larger awkward spaces. In these cases, justification is turned off and thumbnails become left aligned. We think these changes present the most appealing interface for both cases.
For those of you who didn't see the new thumbs when they were previewed a month back, here's a re
Terror wins.Son of a BITCH! SONY PUSSED OUT ON US!!!Terror wins.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
For f**k’s sake. Terrorists are not under your bed. They are not hiding around every corner. They are not in the seat next to you. The few that are out there only win if you start to think they might be.
In 2005, a gaggle of weak-minded twits blew themselves up on the London Underground. I and 1.2 BILLION other passengers per year still use it. Could another attack happen? Of course. But so could fire, flood, collapse or accident. You could get hit by a bus as you exit the station! There are a thousand-and-one terrible things that could happen to you today and, I assure you, unless you live in some third world sh*thole, the odds of a random yahoo causing you physical harm for political or religious reason is one of the least likely to occur.

Robocop 2.0The Robocop reboot was one of the few acts of lazy plagiarism that I wasn’t really bothered by, and was in fact looking forward to.Robocop 2.01 year ago in Personal More Like This
“WHAAAT?!” I hear some cry. “You can’t mess with a classic!”
To them I ask: Have you watched the original recently?
Unlike, say, Ghostbusters (1984), the original Robocop has not aged well, mostly because it was a satire and satirical comedy/comedy based on popular culture tends to date very quickly.
Also, because of the limitations of special effects at the time: Peter Weller now looks decidedly goofy clomping around “future” Detroit in that clunky costume. I’ve no idea how restrictive it was, but I’ve a sneaking suspicion that he took the Anthony Daniels approach to playing a robot and made a point of moving like the Tin Man in a monsoon.
The reboot has ditched the satirical slant of the original and become a character-based drama. Those hoping for a repeat of the ‘87
Ashcan Copy Comics?At conventions, Ashcan comics is, essentially, a "cheap print" comic. Traditionally, these are smaller, black and white copies of the comics you produce, to allow readers a free (or VERY cheap) comic to read, with the idea that they will become engaged in the story enough to purchase the colored version or future comics. These were often 8 1/2 inch by 11 inch pages, just printed on standard printing paper, and often done in short runs. Sometimes they had several pages per page, other times they were simply low quality.Ashcan Copy Comics?8 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's changed, to some extent, as many people now produce very high quality Ashcans, but with only 5 pages or so, which has been criticized. While it is true that higher quality, shorter comics can be great to show off the quality of your work, your art, and coloring, it does not usually allow readers to get engaged in the story.
What is your opinion on Ashcan comics?
Are they useful? We live in an age now where people not only expect instant gratification, they expect it

So thankful for (and shocked by) these amazing folks. Together they've brought the voices of Gogo, Didi, Andy, and Pablo to life, and have even tackled one of my bigger comics in the process.

2014 Animation ReelLook, it's a new animation reel!2014 Animation Reel6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Examples of animated content produced from 2005-2014. Mostly new footage, but there's a few old bits I just can't give up.
In all of the traditionally-animated sequences collected here I served as Key Animator, if not full Animator. Often that's included the choreography and layout of the action as well a drawing the frames. Scenes for The Awesomes were produced in Toonboom Harmony, all other sequences animated with Photoshop and composed in AfterEffects (sequences prior to 2007 produced with finely-ground minerals pressed into pulped and pressed wood shavings).
For Darksiders II I acted as the Cinematics Director, coordinating and guiding the production of animated story sequences. Sequences were animated by teams both internal as well as outsourced, domestic and international. Animation for these sequences were produced either by the dedicated crew at Plastic Wax Australia or the talented team at Vigil Games (circa 2012, now scattered

What Is Flash Fiction?
Put simply, flash fiction is a very short story. Lengths can vary from as few as six words (i.e. Hemingway's famous Baby Shoes) to a thousand, sometimes more. It depends largely on the outfit for which the author decides to write a piece of flash fiction. For the

DepressionAs most folks likely know by now Robin Williams passed away and it might be suicide.. And like most of you it hit me like blunt force trauma. I normally don't speak up about these sorts of things. I expect the sorrow is known and spoken about by much more eloquent people than I.... Except I feel there is something I must warn you about. A niggling piece of information I assume all people know... but they might not. A while back a comedic internet personality committed suicide as well. You'll likely know who I'm talking about and if you don't it is only important that you know that he was comedic. Keep an eye on the funny ones. Keep and eye on the people who bring you joy. Depression is something that happens to more than the poor emo sad sacks folks make fun of. Humor can be a reaction formation to the negative feelings that someone is feeling. Comedians are empathetic and they want you to experience joy so tDepression10 months ago in Personal More Like This

Sailor Moon: New Anime in 2013 (now w/video)This is not a rumor!Sailor Moon: New Anime in 2013 (now w/video)3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It was officially announced that there will be a BRAND NEW Sailormoon Anime in Summer 2013! The original Japanese VAs for Moon and Tuxy seem to be reprising their roles (based on the conversation in the event). We don't have much more detail, a letter from Naoko said she hopes we like the new series and she's happy to be making it. She said she's overwhelmed at the support the series still has and it makes her happy. She didn't think she could do something new but now she's happy she can bring them back!
They said the audience is intended to be the original fans of the show. It will be like a "powered up" of the original story, aimed at the good girls (and boys!) who grew up with the show. TOEI is doing it.
There was something in the announcement about it being released worldwide but we don't know the details. We do not know what this means as far as a possible English dub/sub. We don't yet know when/how this will reach a US market.
