Update: Disney Animation!*Blows the dust off my front page*Update: Disney Animation!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hey guys! It's been a while since I've updated my journal. I have some wonderful news to share.
I'm going to be working at the Walt Disney Animation Studio as a visual development trainee! It's been a dream of mine to work as an artist at Disney feature since I was a little girl and I can't believe it's actually happening. I'm extremely happy to start and I can't wait to meet all the amazing people who work at Disney and absorb as much as my mind can absorb. Woo!

I would like to say thank you to everyone who commented, faved and watched me :> Doesn't matter if you've been watching me from the start or you've just recently watched me, I really, really appreciate it.
I would have replied to all your comments but I've been busy and it's kind impossible to actually reply to every single one because I get a lot ;n; But believe me, I read them all <3333

Happy New Year! And stuff.Hey guys,Happy New Year! And stuff.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hope you had a lovely time over the winter holidays. I received the complete Blackadder DVD boxset for Christmas, and a dress-up David Bowie paperdoll from my sisters - delightful.
(And a poster from certain persons Statesside YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE turned up, which is much-appreciated, but I must point out you guys wussed out on labelling the tube-shaped parcel sent to my parents' address as "Contents: David Bowie's d*ck" like you said you would. Chikins.)
Many apologies I haven't yet resumed GND (I see little Wednesday spikes in my daily pageview stats and feel mildly awful). I basically spent the last week of the official "holidays" hurriedly finishing off a project that had gotten delayed by Christmas shopping and family obligations. It's another issue of that digital comic I may have mentioned and certainly will again once they get their e-reader format neat and ready for download - it's an unpaid, creator-owned publication and I would immensely appreciate any of m

A lot of artists starting out feel overwhelmed by the legal, business, and tax issues involved in starting a small business and becoming a freelance artists. Fortunately, there are organizations around the country to help those who exist under a certain income bracket.
Here is a list of organizations by state.
Each offers different services and consultations, but if you're stuck for information, these people are here to help. Even if they don't know the answer to your question, they might be able to direct you to someone who does.
Though some of the organizations are disbanded, I imagine you could ask for an updated list.

Comme on me l'a demandé plusieurs fois, je repousse d'une semaine la fin du concours. Mais ce sera la seule fois ! Alors profitez-en ^^ Vous avez jusqu'au 21/02 pour m'envoyer vos dessins !
Comme certains le savent peut-être, ma page facebook vient de passer les 1 000 fans. Pour fêter ça dignement, une loterie a été organisé sur cette dernière, et je tenais aussi à faire quelque chose sur Deviantart pour l'occasion. Cette fois, pas de loterie mais un concours de dessin ! Je crois qu'il est de notoriété publique que je suis une grande fan de Détective Conan, et j'aimerais profiter de ce concours pour faire connaître un peu mieux ce manga et pourquoi pas donner l'envie à certains de le lire !
Thème du concours :
Détective Conan ! (Ou Meitantei Conan pour les intimes)

What Godzilla: Heritage is:
From an initial idea formed in late 2009, Godzilla: Heritage's concept has drawn the interest of several talented artists and actors - non-fan and fan alike and is now entering pre-production status. The film seeks to return the Godzilla mythology to its darker roots and ground the character and some of its memorable kaiju in an altered continuity that explores a world where they have been a staple of everyday life for almost 60 years. The project will utilize traditional suitmation and miniatures as well as more contemporary effects. The film is a non-profit project . "Godzilla" and all related charac

Step by Step : My Pixel BasicsStep by Step : My Pixel Basics1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I've had people from time to time ask me how I pixel, and I've never really been sure how to explain. It hasn't been until the past few years that i've really thought too much about what I was doing beyond experimenting and learning new things. I think I've rounded out some basic guidelines I usually follow and a friend wanted some advice so I decided to attempt some sort of explanation
Below are some step by step images and commentary. Please note that there is no one right way to create a piece of art. This Step by Step is meant only to impart some understanding of how I do things . In Pixel art alone there are many many 'styles'. I encourage anyone reading to look up more than one tutorial and seek critique if trying to learn their own pixel style.
Please excuse any spelling mistakes, and take note that I use Photoshop 7.0, but the same principals sh
Why Are You Atheists So Angry?I often see how religous people say that atheists dont have morals, hate their lives, arent happy, are always angry and disrespectful etc.. Ive even heard some say that Atheists die faster because they dont believe or have faith.Why Are You Atheists So Angry?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And I finally found one woman who explains this very well. So I think this is a video many should see even if your not an atheist. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUI_ML1qkQE&feature=share
I do get angry for some of the things she doesnt metion to, but she sums up most of it.
Not only do I agree with her, but im SHOCKED to hear half of the things that made her angry, because they are HORRIBLE and I dont see how anyone could ignore them.
Oh and just incase many of you thought I was religious, im not xD Ive got no problem with you being it, just dont try to shove it on me. 8D and guess what, Im a really happy and positive person even If I dont believe or have faith. I dont think I could be happier. Maybe If I had some delicous homemade pizza lD~

That one freakin' pose!Have you ever had this pose in your head?That one freakin' pose!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And it's perfect for what you're trying to do, but it has parts of the body in a strange perspective you can't quite communicate properly?
But you are fond of correct anatomy, so you are unwilling to just fudge it?
You've gone through all your figure drawing poses, but your shit art school only gave you female models all three years you were there? (No joke ... I was furious.)
So you go to all the pose reference pages you can find and there is only one there, but there's a big-ass watermark over the one part you need?
You curse your luck and go through (I kid you not) at least 50 more sites and thousands more pictures and there is nothing?
And then you think ... hey wait a minute! I have that Disney's Art of Tarzan book that has all those amazing Glen Keane anatomical sketches in it?
So you run over to your book shelf and spend 30 min going through it page by page, and you find it, but it's from the wrong angle?
Frustrated, you go back to the i

Disney's Big Hero 6So Frozen has come to pass, as far as the Disney Princess Movie formula goes that movie was just awsome how it even messed around with its own expected tropes. So what's next for the Disney crew? Well if I'm to believe this wiki article apparently we're finally gonna see a Marvel Comics property turned into Disney's 54th major animated film.Disney's Big Hero 63 months ago in Personal More Like This
Will it be the worst nightmare that Marvel fans have feared will come to pass? I guess it depends on whether or not this "Big Hero 6" property is one of those truly sacred stories put out by Marvel that fans would rather not see get the full Disney Animated Movie treatment....
It would be a rather unusual thing to see X-Men villain Silver Samurai in an actual animated Disney Movie, it doesn't say it'll happen but hey the film has from here 'til next November to come out so who knows, hell I wonder if he would be an actual character this time than just a giant ori

looking back to about a year ago i had doodled a very rough sketch in my sketch book of a girl walking an octopus. and when i say rough i mean rough. the sketch itself was nothing more than a study of contrasting silhouettes. i was drawn to the play between a very rigid character and a squiggly one.
i had forgotten about that sketch until i heard about a steampunk t-shirt design for www.welovefine.com. i thought that this design might have a chance so i went ahead and finished it off. well it got alot of attention and i am happy to say that it won the competition. the shirt started to sell
