Notes from a Glen Keane lectureEnjoy! He was such a wonderful and lovely person to listen to and meet. I got to see him draw Tarzan, Ariel and Beast. I got to go to a company event, so he shook my hand signed my Tangled book and chatted about what I did for a living and stuff I been working on.Notes from a Glen Keane lecture3 years ago in Personal More Like This
- You want to connect, you want to put your own DNA into the picture and connect.
-Vulnerability. Telling someone who you are. Honestly revealing parts of yourself sincerely. The key to animation is sincerity. Step beyond your walls and share as an artist.
- Animation is the ultimate art form. No other art form will challenge you as much as animation can.
- You always want to be restless, I always had one foot out the door at Disney.
- it is important to not hold back and share all you have to your fellow artists. Got to keep giving it out and trust me it'll pour right back in.
- Drawing is about feeling.
- Conveying an emotion of peacefulness is just trying to capture someone living in that moment.
- Eyes are really key to e

"Hi - you may have read today that a next-generation sequel to Tomb Raider is in the works. We’re very excited to confirm that the team has started working on telling the next chapter in Lara’s tale. It’s still early days, so I’m afraid I can’t provide any further details for now save my assurance that we’re not resting on our laurels and acclaim from Tomb Raider’s recent successes, but working hard to raise the bar even higher and re-affirm the faith you’ve shown."

Today I've been informed by this gentleman :icongycee: about the identity of Jack's face model. If any of you guys would like to thank him for making your day, feel free to do so (I've already have and nearly proposed to him... until I realized he was a dude, of course).
Ahem! the model's name name is Candice Neil and as you can expect, she is absolutely gorgeous.

Kiriban AND Raffle (free art and points) The Kiriban~Kiriban AND Raffle (free art and points)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So Ima put up a new kiriban! I still haven't finished the last one, but don't worry. I promise my priorities are in check. >: New kiriban is 10.000 page views, and the winner will get a waist/bust up fully coloured picture and if I haven't already given one to you, a llama. You can only get my kiriban if you are watching me. No this is not a ploy to gain watchers, but for me setting a kiriban is about rewarding your loyal watchers, and it defeats the object to allow someone with no interest in me or my art to win my art, you see? Also, if more than one person wins I will give out multiple prizes. If it is missed the closest to the kiriban wins the prize!
As I said before, I'm feeling generous, so I'm going to do a raffle too! The rules are simple:
For the same reasons listed above you must be watching me. I want to reward people for their interest in my art, not for their entering skills.
an About Me thingyIn case anyone cares, I wrote a small story about how I got where I am. It's not a big deal, it's just in case people actually WANT to know about me as an artist before buying my hoodies or something ^_^an About Me thingy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm going to start this story farther back than I should, but really it took a lot of adventures to get to where I am right now-- twists and turns and loop-de-loops and it all brings me here.
I've been in love with costuming since I was about 11-years-old. I handed my dance studio's costumer a book of my sketches of costume designs for all of my different dance numbers, and although she was unable to make any of my little squiggle drawings into a reality, she encouraged me to keep trying. And so I did.
I left dance and started costuming at a high school theatre at 15-years-old-- since I was homeschooled, they let me be in their plays if I did costuming for them. By the end of my junior year, I had enough hours in costuming that I could've lettered in Theatre-- at a school I didn't even

Concerning Points to USD [added info]I just want to sort of explain this because it's sort of a pet peeve of mine when I see it around lol.Concerning Points to USD [added info]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are TWO point + USD equivalents.
Not just one.
80 = $1.00 ONLY IF:
-You are BUYING POINTS or if you are using points to buy/sell PRINTS or other dA MERCHANDISE.
100 = $1.00 ONLY IF:
-You are turning points into USD via PREMIUM DOWNLOAD or COMMISSIONS WIDGET.
Why is this?
-deviantART will ALWAYS take a 20% cut out of whatever you RECEIVE whenever you use dA to process anything that has to do with points going into USD or vice versa.
You feel that 20% whenever you buy points or a print or anything else with USD, because you're only getting 80points per dollar.
And if you look for yourself, on your commissions widget or in the premium download options, 100points = $1.00 to make up for that 20% lost by dA taking its cut.
Prints, Merchandise, Buying Points ---> 80 = $1.00
Commissions Widget, Premium Download --->

Pony OC Valentine pair up!So I had this great idea for a Valentine's day activity!Pony OC Valentine pair up!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since there are alot of Pony OCs looking for a special somepony but have trouble finding one, why not help them out a bit? Fill out the form (below) and submit it then the day before Valentine's day I'll post the pony pairings I made from the ponys submitted in a journal. I'll use the info you give me to make the best match I can so be sure to be detailed! It's like an OC blind date! If the pairing you get doesn't work out, don't worry becaue there's no commitment! But hopefully it will work out and your pony will have a nice special somepony to spend Valentine's day with! Don't be shy, I'll be doing all the pairing so you don't have to do any awkward asking! Just submit as many OCs as you'd like and wait!
What they look for in another pony:
The owners of the ponys in the best pairing will be getting 50 points each!

ME3 Gets Free Ending DLCNo, this is not a joke.ME3 Gets Free Ending DLC3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you to whomever may have posted a link to this in the club page comments, although credit goes to jasonbehnke as the one whose blog post brought this to my attention.
Anyway, I'm fairly certain ninety percent of you were in the camp of disliking the endings to a supreme extent and wish for an alternative.
I know this has been said before, but you're getting it.
The details released are as follows.
The Mass Effect Extended Cut DLC will feature new dialogue, cinematics and epilogue scenes that will expound upon the game's different endings, which will be working to satisfy issues people have with them cirrently. It will be available for free on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC from its release this summer up until April of 2014.
This was agreed upon as the ideal compromise to appease the fans dissatisfied with the end of Mass Effect 3 while still retaining the artistic integrity of the product the team worked so hard on.
