GODZILLA (2014) review - The Showa Must Go OnGODZILLA (2014) has hit theaters, and for months (years for most Godzilla fans), potential audiences have been anticipating a return to form for the Lizard King - a film that will revisit the themes of the 1954 original and deliver a brooding, apocalyptic story of destruction and doom.GODZILLA (2014) review - The Showa Must Go On1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Instead, what we got could best be described as a sequel to THE TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA (1975).
Trust me, I wouldn't begin a review with a hyperbolic, attention-grabbing statement like that without explaining it. For the moment, let us turn back the clock and toss out a quick recap of the film's plot. Obviously, this review will contain a metric crapload of SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS, but you'll complain anyway, so let's get on with this.
After a mysterious event in 1954 regarding the Castle Bravo nuclear test and an unknown giant organism, the story jumps to 1999, where two scientists, Dr. Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and Dr. Graham (Sally Hawkins) are investigating a massive underground tomb in the
Tutorial Tuesday: HatchingSo I was asked to do a tutorial on hatching. I use it alot in my comics and art as I LOVE the energy and gritty feeling cross hatching can portray in artwork. But there are guys and gals out there that do it way better than I can. So I'm going to do a tutorial on some of the basics, and then encourage you to look at the art of Wally Wood, Joe Kubert, Walter Simonson, and Marc Silvestri to see how the masters use it.Tutorial Tuesday: Hatching3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I was fortunate enough to download the iTunes episode before it got pulled... but I don't trust these quasi-real digital downloads... so I just ordered the Friendship Express DVD on Amazon.com for $9.99. It's got five episodes: The 2-part pilot, Over a Barrel, Hearths Warming Eve and The Last Round-Up. http://www.amazon.com/My-Little-Pony-Friendship-Magic/dp/B0063FGF14
Anyway, they're not going to be able to pull and redo 15 gazillion DVDs that have already been produced... but later presses of the DVD might get altered, so who knows...
Anyway, Love and Tolerance!!! Just repeat it over and over until your inner pony is at ease.

10 things to ask before you draw a Children's Book10 things to ask before you draw a Children's Book3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Artwork copyright © Wilson Williams, Jr.
With the growth in popularity of the e-book many authors are seeing a glimmer of hope and realizing that they can get their work out there without having to break into the velvet roped publishing house exclusive party. This means that you will begin to get even more solicitations from those authors looking for artists to bring visuals to their words.
If you have a website or have done any degree of online advertising of your artwork, you have probably gotten an e-mail with a similar message as the title. If not, you will at some point. It's best to be prepared now. For those who have gotten it, nine times out of ten you aren’t sure how to respond to it, what should you ask, how do you respond?
I was tired of retyping essentially the same letter over and over again. I finally saved a template of the letter I use in this situation

So here's what we know:
- Action will take place in Japan, Hawaii, Las Vegas (that's the Mini Liberty, not the NYC original), San Francisco...and SOMEWHERE in the Pacific Northwest?
- Godzilla has been around since 1954...and the US military spent several decades just trying to KILL HIM.
- The MUTO creatures are in the trailer, as the flying one can be seen along with its long hook-like arm.
- There's SOME sort of egg-sack-thing on one of the nukes...could they be MUTO eggs?
- Cranston's character was involved in a nuclear accident in Japan 15 years prior to the film, and smells a conspiracy.
- Watanabe's character discovers some sort of massive fossil underground...
And there you have it
- Firstly, everybody needs to get in the mood by listening to this:
Keep your eyes on that page. Godzilla is coming...TOMORROW.

5 Suggestions to Make Horror ScarySince we're coming up on Halloween (sort of) and I'm increasingly irritable at the lack of horror films to see, here five ways I think the genre in film, television and video games could be improved.5 Suggestions to Make Horror Scary3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm actually a fan of horror, but specifically physiological dread rather then gore which is increasingly becoming the minority of horror in general. I'm hoping there are those like me, sick of the splatter and wanting to see horror once more actually SCARE people again!
1: No Cheap Music Stings
This is one that's really starting to get to me. EVERY SINGLE instance of suspense has to be broken up with a loud discordant blast of music and sound. Sure it's startling but since the music sting itself doesn't exist inside the universe of the film/show/game it comes across as artificial with only a little bit of retrospect. To me music stings make me jump but they don't actually scare me, any more then getting a static electrical zap is terrifying. Worse a surprising lot of these stings oc
Video Game Adaptations Can Work!Video game adaptations: the very word conjures horrific visions of box office flops or just rancid pieces of cinematic waste.Video Game Adaptations Can Work!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wing Commander, Mortal Kombat Annihilation, Tomb Raider Cradle of Life, Prince of Persia, Super Mario Bros, Silent Hill, Doom, Max Payne, Dead or Alive, Final Fantasy The Spirits Within, House of the Dead, Street Fighter, Alone in the Dark, Resident Evil, and Tekken among others have been soundly panned across the board by critics and theater goers alike as being unfaithful to their source materials and all around amateurish and poor quality productions.
But comic book adaptations are in general the blockbusters keeping the industry afloat, so 'adaptation' doesn't seem to be the primary stumbling block.
The issue I feel is a bunch of mistakes related to lack of care and consideration for the video games as well as storytelling itself that leads to adaptations failing on two fronts: first as the films the fans of the games want to see, and secondly as films anyon
Gamera's Birthday and Removing Gift WidgetI wanted to share two things today, a tribute to Gamera's birthday and the removal of my "Gifts for Me" widget.Gamera's Birthday and Removing Gift Widget6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am removing the widget because so many of the friends who gave me gifts are gone or maybe they deleted my gift from their gallery or put it in storage, so instead of happy reminders that someone cared enough about me to give me a gift, I am reminded of their absence or that they deleted said gift....which is kind of a bummer. But if you enjoyed seeing your art on my wall, don't despair because I have a folder called "Gifts from People I love" and that is where I put your art!

Kid's Movies: No Thought Required?My recent rant on The Lego Movie let me in on a trend of thought I find a little disturbing, but I can understand in retrospect.Kid's Movies: No Thought Required?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Kid's movies are, by their nature, not to be taken seriously.
This seems to encompass any and all considerations of deeper meaning in any film defined, or suspected to be defined as, entertainment for children.
The assumptions arising from this position are a little disturbing to me.
1: Kids don't think about what they watch, and shouldn't be expected to try.
2: All apparent messages in movies are untrue, unintended, or carelessly misleading.
Other then this, what conclusion can I come to here?
Are there any other times when not thinking somehow makes up for the deficiencies in a product?
If someone served you lousy food, would you decide it was worth the price because it wasn't even intentionally good? And more to the point, would you give lousy food to a kid because they don't know the difference between good and bad food anywa

What I'm going to do, if all goes as planned in my imagination, is make you (yes you fans, followers, and readers) a part of my book LMS's history.
I want you to help define Gabriel, the lead character, on his quest of revenge and help define whom he is as a hero (or anti-hero) and help customize his design throughout the story with me.
Also, there will be a second option, to create your own Bounty Hunter.

I draw humanesque characters only.
I perfer making female characters, but I make male chacters as well.
I don't draw full nudity for any character
The comissions will be in black and white since I sketch them on paper first and then edit them. I rarely color even my own work.
I will absolutely do my best with these! I hope to get a lot of responses and I plan on doing more of these in the
