Happy 16th Anniversary to Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame! June 21st, 1996, Disney's 34th animated film was released to theaters. I posted the original theatrical trailer that showed us all just how amazing this movie would be. I love that it ranged from light-hearted and silly to dark and serious.

Last Sunday I had a Skype meeting with Brendan Julian and Richard Johnston - the voices of Louis and James respectively from my upcoming animation - to discuss the finer points of Honour Amongst Thieves. As promised, I managed to record it and so without further ado, I present to you:
Honour Amongst Thieves
I was delighted to see the two of them got along so well, because their character interaction promises to be great this way. Unfortunately, Santiago's VA was unable to make it due to timezones, but perhaps sometime in future we'll be able to repeat this again plus one Spaniard!

For those asking, I'm animating directly into the computer using a Wacom tablet. The animation program I'm using is TVPaint Animation 10 Pro. Super expensive so I use the school computers, but it's like the illegitimate love-child between Photoshop and Adobe After Effects without Flash's niggling tendencies to crash every ten minutes. That program is sex. <3
ADAM LAMBERT LIVE IN SINGAPOREI pride myself on being an "old soul" when it comes to music taste. As a kid I was raised on classical greats like Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Chopin, and the list goes on by my dad. My mom weaned my sister and I on goldies like ABBA, Bon Jovi, Rod Stewart, and Boney M. I listen to copious amounts of 70s and 80s bands that make me look like a bit of a dweeb to my classmates, ranging anywhere from Alice Cooper, Queen, Led Zeppelin, and Joan Jett through to Adam Ant and Dead or Alive. As a result, I'm heavily biased against what I call the "mainstream crap on MTV".ADAM LAMBERT LIVE IN SINGAPORE2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The art's a little old, and it's only half-way colored, but with a few tweaks in the dialogue here and there and Photoshop tricks to fix some awkward lineart, I think I might be able to salvage it. I drew it years ago as the sequel to the last Neopet series I drew, about Virtupets shenanigans as Sloth's personal coffee slave, and features my Jetsam Nachtenfeldudu more prominently.
Now I'm excited to finish it up. One more reason to rush that essay ...

I can't even sing the first few verses without tearing up. I've this song heard a long time before, but when it made its impression on me was when I heard it on the radio at a Zaxby's restaurant when we were in Tennessee. We were originally going to go to a different restaurant but when we got there I got this sudden and almost burning sense of... I guess I would call it dread. I broke out in a cold sweat and was just completely uneased. I told my parents how I was feeling and that I felt like we just needed to leave. So we did and we went over to Zaxby's. About 5 minutes before we arrived, the 'dread' feeling left completely.

(2) Set your itunes/ipod/music device to shuffle and write a song fic for the next ten songs that come up no matter what the song is. (Ok, I cheated a liiiittle bit XD)

- I'm not telling you which princess I'm doing next.
- I would appreciate it if you didn't tell me what character I should do next, or what you're looking forward to, or what character you hope I'll do! It's very sweet and I definitely appreciate the sentiment, but consider the fact that you're something like the 400th person to tell me about Elsa, or Anna, or Merida- it's not adding a lot to the conversation.
- No, I'm not doing any Kingdom Hearts characters. There's no particular historical precedent, so they don't really have anything to gain from this series.
Are you going to do Merida?
YES PLEASE STOP ASKING sobsobsob
Are you going to do Elsa and Anna?
Are you going to do any more pieces in this series?
Yes! Let it be assumed that I will continue doing these until stated otherwise.

Myths of Unova AU Contest [CLOSED FOR JUDGING]UPDATE: THE CONTEST IS CLOSED FROM SUBMISSIONS! Judging is underway and we will get the results back to you guys asap! Thank you for all who participated <3Myths of Unova AU Contest [CLOSED FOR JUDGING]1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hey guys! It's Ky-nim here with a fun new contest! We're gonna go for some AU/ALTERNATE UNIVERSE SHENANIGANS.
Just in case you are confused, an AU (alternate universe) is defined as stories/works that explore the what-ifs arising from different circumstances. Some of the more popular AUs seen are set in High School, a zombie apocalypse, Victorian England, and even role reversal universes (i.e the MC is the enemy and vice versa). Others take on a more crossover-y nature, by having AUs in other fandom-related settings such as AUs in the Avengers-verse, SnK-verse, Pacific Rim-verse etc.
Sounds like a fun contest and want to participate? Awesome! Here are some guidelines for the contest.
Think of an AU you would like to see the Myths of Unova cast be in (do whatever you want!)

I find it amazing that a lot of you are capable of taking our conversations and quips and transforming them into a visual medium that’s capable of entertaining (or confusing) a lot of people out there.

dA's recent change in ToSA recent change in deviantART's Terms of Services has caused a shift in artists' confidence in sharing artwork online via their website. A must-read if you are a frequent user/artist of the site.dA's recent change in ToS7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Here's an eloquently condensed TL;DR by my buddy, :iconsyaming-li:
Hot Topic (a t-shirt website) has recently been caught in the act of using artwork without the artist's consent and are making a profit from it. The artist, whose artwork was originally posted on deviantART, cannot contest to it due to deviantART's change in their ToS. (Simply put, deviantART sold the artist's artwork to a third-party)
Despite deviantART's 'vague' ToS descriptions, they still NEED your consent to use your content for commercial purposes.Thought I'd also throw in my 2 cents to the whole uproar amongst the other artists:
Either start watermarking your artworks (Not those shitty corner ones. Slap on a massive watermark right across your artwork!) or migrate your work to a personal website/blog or to a social media

Ive been in art tournaments of the DeviantART sort for a while, observing, competing and administrating ever since July 07. Doesnt sound like much, but I am assured by my friends that this makes me at the very least a Veteran in the Tournament scene. So! With that in mind, Id like to take this opportunity to bitch and whine about problems with tournaments Ive seen, and to praise to the high heavens innovation and whatnot in the various tournies that pop up from time to time. This is mainly to do with Tournament establishment and administration; have a gander if you like.
