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

idk if this will be a success or not but i hope it will
basically, what i've decided to do is run a very small contest, and by small i mean small because i'm not a well known author so yup.
it's a contest for writers both big (i mean if you want to) and small (also, if you want to) and the pairing is obviously phan.
so, here is the subject for this competition...
Star Crossed lovers who were not meant to be.
if you don't understand, think of it like romeo and juliet, they were star crossed but in the end they just couldn't be together.
make it angsty, make it fluffy, make is smutty, make it angsty and fluffy, it's your fic, you do what you want with it!
if you do decide to enter (that would be gr8) then name it 'Star Crossed' so then i know
i don't want to say what the prize is YET just in case it puts people off, but it's no
SpeechlessSeriously. The sheer horrifying nature of the internet has left me speechless for now.Speechless2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I live in a free country, where freedom of speech is an important matter. A long while ago, when I was still young and at school, we learned how to do a proper discussion in class. We were learned that provocation isn't that bad to get a message across, but that you should always have at least some respect for the people you discuss with, and talk with them with calmness and reason. If you lose your temper, you lose the argument. That's what I've learned.
The reactions I got on my last journal, however, have left met both sad and speechless. Because I'm unable to grasp how people can be so downright insulting towards a fellow human being. To a member of the same website....
My journal wasn't meant to tell people how much I hate fanartist. Because... I don't really hate them. I just feel sad about how hard it is to get attention for original work in the sea of fanart ou
remedies for those suffering from writer's blockI was gonna title this "prompt journal" but since I'm listing full-fledged strategies and I'm weird you get this lovely little thing, my own personal Chicken Soup for the Literary Constipated. These are all tactics I use frequently or thought would be fun.remedies for those suffering from writer's block2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Create the prettiest, most unique imagery you can imagine and then write a poem around those words and phrases. (I once wrote a whole poem around the phrase cereal box savior )
2. Write dedications you plan on never letting anyone see. It can range from two lines to twenty stanzas, but sit down and tell everyone what you think of them in as poetic a way as you can. This is really cathartic and a good practice for those who don't write dedications well (*cough* me)
3. Write a diary entry in verse. Take your own emotions and stories and fictionalize them; make them close enough to the truth that it's easy to write but far enough from yourself that you still feel it's beautiful. This is also really cathartic.
4. Take a com

Artist Alley First-Timer? What You Need to Know!
A little advice after my time at the artist alley.
An original article by Scar23
Artist Alley: My First Time!
Many of us have been to some form of comic or anime convention and traveled through the artist alley. The first time I ever went to a convention was WonderCon in San Francisco, California, and the first place I stopped was at the artist alley. I remember being so surprised that there was actually a place completely devoted to artists. After browsing through the artist alley and meeting some of the artists, I thought to myself, “One day, you’ll be here, too.” About 5 years later, I was coerced into getting my first artist alley table at Sac-Con in Sacramento, California on March 6th, 2011.
Preparing to have an artist alley table was one of the most stressful thin
Stupid Little RantOk.Stupid Little Rant2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Someone explain to me the big whoop about the Big Freaking Four.
I mean, I love Jack, Hiccup, Rapunzel and Merida as much as the next guy, and I love crossovers...
But seriously, it seems to me that people just took four random movie characters and decided to give them freaking VIP treatment to the point where other movie charcaters/ crossovers look almost inferior.
What's the big deal? It's just another crossover. These four characters hardly have anything to do with each other. :/
Why do they have their own little "exclusive" group?
Why do people treat it like the most epic crossover in CGI movie history?
Why aren't other movie characters allowed into the group?
Someone explain this crap to me.
I apologize if you happen to be a fan of the Big Four, I'm not trying to offend anyone...but this is really pissing me off.
The Meaning of 'No' and Where to Go From ThereFor my AP Language and Composition class, we were supposed to write an essay on a controversial topic. I chose Rape Culture.The Meaning of 'No' and Where to Go From There2 years ago in Personal More Like This
An important line that seems to be blurred when it comes to sexual advances and the act of sex itself is the idea of "when does no mean no". If a woman is blackout drunk yet still asks for sex, even though she might not remember it in the morning, surely it isn't against her will? Or if a girlfriend says no, maybe she's just playing hard to get, right? Wrong. No matter the innuendos and no matter the situation, 'no' does in fact mean 'no'. Regardless of how drunk the person is or what they are wearing, there is never an excuse for rape or an 'invitation' for sexual assault. But the question is where did this mindset begin and why is it acted upon so often and without reproof?
The catalyst and the enabler of rape is much more complex than just a man's lust: the crux of the issue lies in the idea of "Rape Culture". Rape culture is a society in which people of all a

I would have gotten back to them, but unfortunately had to go to the ER for a jaw infection that consumed a good chunk of my face. Been a shoddy last week or so, but i'm healing and back to normal (one could beg to differ).
While in there, I was thinking of how much art means to me. I often hyper focus on it, and don't pay attention to my surroundings, thus how I've ended up in the ER twice this year already. Lately, I've been hiding my work and not sharing as much, due to wanting it to be the perfect reveal. But what's the point, if there's no art to show?
I want to make a strong effort back into Deviantart. This community is what began LMS and turned it into what it is today. Check out the first book LMS: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter: Here

'For exposure' - a warning to artistsI ran into this Twitter page a few days ago. It's a collection of real comments that artists get all the time asking them to work for free, or, as these people often prefer to say, "for exposure".'For exposure' - a warning to artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This
People like this are usually trying to guilt-trip artists into taking on massive projects for no pay, claiming it'll be good advertisement or that they'll get paid once the project becomes a success. The truth is, the chances of getting picked up by a major studio are extremely small. The so-called free advertisement the artist may or may not end up getting is usually not worth the effort.
Just to give you a taste of the disrespect for an artist's time and energy that some people have, here's a choice quote:
"Need Animator-I have a story that's 4 seasons long, 10 episodes each. looking for maximum quality. No pay. I will warn that I am very picky"
Does this person even realize the amount of work that goes into animation? Depending on the
