Oct. 13) please join me and animation voice actors Tara Strong and Tom Kenny for the Wildlife Learning Center's SAFARI SOCIAL FUNDRAISER! Meet a two-toed sloth! Feed a porcupine! Hold a Tawny Owl!
PET ONE OF THESE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wildlife Learning Center is a small, fantastic zoo in Sylmar, CA. They care for a menagerie of exotic animals and train them as ambassadors to help educate the public about wildlife preservation. Many of their animals are rescues from pet owners who kept them illegally, or rescues from the wild where various injuries would make their survival impossible. The fundraiser is being held to raise money for the animals' care.

What the Judge's Were Saying: We really loved the designs and the story sounded intriguing! It seems like a great off-beat story for Disney to do with charming characters everyone is sure to fall in love with. Congratulations on first place!
What the judges were saying: We adored the idea of Laura and her cow, an historical story of a girl dragging her delightful cow across the country in a quest for peace. Absolutely wonderful idea! We'd LOVE to see it on the big screen - great material!

The winner is...
The Lion King!

"The Lion King was considered a little movie because we were going to take some risks. The pitch for the story was a lion cub gets framed for murder by his uncle set to the music of Elton John. People said, 'What? Good luck with that.' But for some reason, the people who ended up on the movie were highly passionate about it and motivated."
The movie came out in 1994 and became the little movie that could! It was the highest grossing film of that year.
Since then there's been many re-releases of the movie, sequels, and even a Broadway musical based on it.
What's the movie about? Well, you're a Disney fan! Shouldn't you have seen it by now?

For all the helpful art student and aspiring artist blogs and resources there are out there, I see WAY less visible support for those actually in the industry.

Storyboard Revisionist Portfolio TipsEven if you’re just starting out to be a revision artist, the most important items in your portfolio will be your storyboard samples. The main reason why is that the studio will be looking for someone that they know can eventually grow and develop into the role of a full storyboard artist. The only way you can demonstrate that is to have a few samples in your portfolio.Storyboard Revisionist Portfolio Tips3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A storyboard revisionist is much more than a cleanup artist; they have to know how storyboards and film language work — a director might ask a revisionist to “restage this sequence and make it work.” A revisionist has to be well-versed in the art of storyboarding to interpret that kind of vague and common request (I ask my crew to do this sort of thing all the time).
Many artists that are just starting out don’t have any storyboard samples, but there is a surefire remedy for that: Go make some
You can create your own storyboard samples based on stories you come up with, or “borr

Live the dream, don't talk about it!Doug TenNapel, independent comics creator, is an inspiration to me in many ways. He has a fun, accessible art style that is dramatic and fresh. His story telling is always askew in the best of ways. I don't think I've read one of his graphic novels without having some smiles and a surprise or two along the way. On top of that, he is outspoken about almost everything in his life. (I think of him as the Rush Limbaugh of comics- oh man, that sounds really bad, but early Rush, not present day Rush, if that helps.) I agree with most things he states on Facebook. BUT- the thing I am most inspired about him is his drive (in the old days we would call that "work ethic"). The guy does NOT give up. Because of that, he single-handedly will put out a new graphic novel a year. While creating a webcomic. While pitching new TV show development ideas in Hollywood. While running a half marathon. While working freelance jobs.Live the dream, don't talk about it!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

It may seem simple enough, but it's an awesome flick.

Chosen by :iconmistytang::iconzimeta::iconshoomlah:
Give me your voice by Khioora
What the judges were saying: "Khioora's piece definitely jumped out at me when I was first browsing through the entries- it's a striking illustration, granted, but I was also taken with the integration of both 1830's fashion, and Romantic period portrayals of mermaids with more delineated legs. I'm not a huge fan of fashion in the 1830's, but I'll be the first to admit that it's a blast to draw; I think Khioora did a great job of capturing the so-called "Waist and Extravagance" of the period with both her characters' overall silhouette, and her general detailing of the costume. Great stuff!"~ shoomlah
