How To Sculpt in Wax pt 2Okay, to continue (and probably wrap up) my Wax info, here's the second installment.How To Sculpt in Wax pt 27 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tools of the trade! Sculpting in wax, while essentially very similar to sculpting in softer clays, does require some specialized tools. Nothing too fancy, but you will need some certain things.
The most important tool is an Alchol Torch. This is a small rubber bottle with a wick that runs up to a screw on cap. You fill it with denatured alcohol, which in some cases is difficult to find. Here in California, I can pick it up at any hardware store, but just a couple of years ago it wasn't as easy to get.
Here is a link to the one I'm using. There may be cheaper alternatives, but $15 isn't too shabby: http://www.egeneralmedical.com/hsi-3659460.html
The alcohol runs you about $15 a gallon too, and usually lasts me about a month of solid working time.
So, what is the alcohol torch used for, you ask? Well heating up your tools of course! It can also be gently squeezed while lit to provide concentrated heat

WE, AS A FANDOM, WOULD NEVER ABANDON LEGEND OF KORRA!!!
Tell people to make sure to watch legend of Korra this Saturday. Because if it doesn't have big views this week, we'll be lowering the chance of getting a third season. As some of you may not know, the main reason we didn't get a new episode of legend of Korra last week is because Nick wanted to test how strong the fandom is. So after a two week break the views should go down. If this happens, Nick will take it as Korra not having a loyal enough audience, and they may not want to go for a third season. So we need to make sure this up coming episode gets a lot of views!
So please re-blog this to your journals to tell the whole Korra fandom on what needs to happen.
WE WANT A THIRD SEASON, THEREFORE WE WILL DO ANYTHING IN OUR POWER TO GET IT.
KORRA FANDOM, ASSEMBLE!
no need to re-blog this part!

Shiloh stopped for a moment, pausing in front of an especially old tombstone. He knelt and ran his hand along its face, feeling the indents of the words.
Matthew Jonathan Mayland
April 15th, 1904 January 1st, 1921
Loving son, caring friend.
"Shiloh, what's the matter?" asked Emmy.
He didn't answer. He just crouched, his fingers freezing to the stone, his breath rising in clouds from his parted lips.
"I'm scared," he said finally.
"Why are you scared?"
He shook his head. "All these people here, all these people under us, they were once alive, right? They breathed. They smiled. They cried and sometimes the wanted to die. But they all had their own lives and stories and problems, and we don't know any of them. We don't know anything at all." He bowed his head slightly. "The kid underneath this grave, he was my age when he died. He was seventeen. He had a mum and a dad and a family
Anthology DoodlesIn my most recent SYAC I touched upon how all us Fresh Epics artists started to doodle on the anthology covers.Anthology Doodles3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Then someone suggested fans who bought the anthology should post pictures so others can see the doodles too.
Oh dear, what have I started?
So here's what I'll do. If you bought a Fresh Epic's anthology that we all doodled something funny on, take a picture of the cover and submit it to your scraps and send me a link (Submitted to scraps to keep the clutter down from the main DA pages since technically this isn't suppose to be a site like photobuckets). I'll post them all up in a big journal so everyone can see all the variations.
How's that sound? Sound like fun?
Ok so just to be clear...
1. If you bought a copy of the Fresh Epic's Anthology where we doodled on it, take a picture
2. Upload it to your scraps
3. Post the link here in THIS journal. Don't send me e-mails or notes, it'll just get cluttered that way.
4. I'll post them as I get th

This is a big god damn deal to us, and I hope you guys want to see the final product as badly as we want to make it. Seriously, we have years of animation we've been wanting to throw out for you to ocularly digest, and we would rather give straight to your face instead of going through TV where it will get COVERED in preservatives and insecticides.
My analogy has wandered from me, but please check out our kickstarter and what could potentially be the best thing ever to happen to mankind. Potentially.
Is Korra/Avatar a kids show?spoiler alertIs Korra/Avatar a kids show?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If Michael and Bryan had a choice, i think that both shows would have been more for teens then for kids. Look at what happen on today's episode. She was on a damn cliff. She was close enough to the edge of the cliff that her tear was able to fall all the way down it rather than hitting the snow. She was standing on the edge of the cliff and she was at her “lowest point”
Yeah, I do kind of think she was contemplating suicide. She did think that she was not the Avatar anymore. She thought she was crippled and useless, and everyone knows when one Avatar passes, a new one is reborn. So maybe she considered it - just for a second - to commit suicide so that the next Avatar could be born - whole. That’s pretty fucking deep for a kids show, but maybe I’m reading too much into it.
But she was strong enough to ask for help, at least that’s why I think Aang showed up. Deep inside, she was calling for help. And she thought that she was alone. That

we got burned out completely by the uninteresting characters.
now, dont get me wrong in any way, this is my wife's and my own opinions here. you like the book? good , we all love what we love, hell bdsm is a perfect example of that. so don't think i in any way thing less of people who liked the books, cause ultimately it is a matter of taste
initially we liked some elements. the treatment of the contract for instancewas a pleasant surprise , when both characters point out the fact that a bdsm relationship contract has no legal validity but is more of an agreement.
we liked the element of trust being mentioned repeatedly, and i personally liked the lip biting... a personal quirk of my wife that i love
but...well, the twilightyness of it all was killing the book. and here is why. they don't act like people. gray acts like a vampire, his family just screams the cullens...anna has a best friend who is

Did You Know? John Dimaggio, the voice actor of Bender from Futurama and Jake on Adventure Time, voices the actor of Toph and Iroh in the episode "the ember island players".
And that Dante Basco (the voice Zuko), older brother voiced the actor of Zuko in that episode also?
Did You Know? The pink roses that Bolin was going to give to Korra resemble trust, happiness, and confidence?
Did You Know? As far as we know, none of the previous avatar have had siblings.
But there are things that i was shocked that they got away with on a kids shows. Like sex for one!

Read at you're own risk.
Production wrapped 5 years ago so I don't think Paramount is going to care. They know it bombed.
What it came down to was M Night really was the only one who knew the show and what he was doing (the first draft of the screenplay? gorgeous. hence Bryke giving him the okay). The producers, who are actually in charge of at least 80% of production including casting.... not so much. They clearly never bothered to watch the show, nor had the ghostwriter who did the final screenplay.
Nicola was hired because she's the daughter of someone one of the producers owed a favor to as Hollywood loves its nepotism. (Her audition tape was subpar at best). In having to cast her they had to cast a guy who could pass as her brother - hence Jackson. His audition was actually pretty good. He's a funny guy and had clearly seen the show. Too bad the producers felt the m
