(...) Everyone has a moment when they think “I am a bad artist.” and they think that because they see a level of skill they have not achieved yet. If this is the case, every artist ever is a bad artist, because every artist ever has had some idea, some plan, some goal of a skill level or creation that they have not achieved yet. And that’s good. Learning and growth and moving forward are all good things, so instead of trying to be some fictionalized version of a good artist, let’s all be bad artists together.

EXTRA C. - Vanellope Von AKB48 Maeda? XD ENGLISH…EXTRA C. - Vanellope Von AKB48 Maeda? XD3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wreck-It Ralph recently opened in Japan, where it’s titled Sugar Rush. Besides enjoying the flick, Japanese moviegoers are doing something else: Comparing the character Vanellope to a real idol.
Namely, Japanese moviegoers are saying Vanellope looks like AKB48 member Ami Maeda. Yes, their eye colour is different, but their eyebrows, hair and facial expressions seem similar, no?
Maeda herself sees the resemblance. “Even today, while walking outside, I was told I looked like Vanellope,” she told Japanese TV. “I said, ‘Oh, thanks!’”
According to Walt Disney Japan, there’s certainly a possibility that Maeda was an influence.
While Sarah Silverman voiced the English version, Disney* seems to have looked to Japanese fashion and anime for Vanellope’s character design. What’s more, AKB48 contributed to the soundtrack, performing the song “Sugar Rush”. So maybe!

Is this the reason why I couldn't get a date?I was cleaning the other day and came across a book that my mother gave me when I was little. A book she bought from a christian bookshop, entitled 'Opening Lines: 458 Great Conversation Starters When you're on a date'. Innocent enough, might be a good idea to help little shy Ry get a girlfriend perhaps! So I was reading this book and boy oh boy... was I in for a treat! Most opening lines in this book were decent, questions like 'What's your favourite fruit?', 'What countries would you like to visit one day?', 'What's your favourite day of the week?' fair enough, but some opening lines were VERY questionable....Is this the reason why I couldn't get a date?8 months ago in Personal More Like This
For each opening line, just imagine you are on a date with someone for the first time.
458 GREAT conversation starters they say? OK LETS LEARN SOMETIHNG FROM THIS BOOK.
So you are at the doorstep of the girl you like. She opens the door, you say hello. 'Oh hi. Im wondering,
This Mindless Zombie won't Sell OutIm not sure if its the same for you guys, but to me, when I just sit down and draw, I feel extremely relaxed and like I am in my own personal space, and I become a bit like a zombie. Somtimes I like to listen to podcast and music, sometimes I just listen to nothing and just let my brain wander while I draw, somtimes I talk to people while I draw. Drawing is a very intersting and relaxing activity that doesn't require a lot of thinking, I'm pretty much on autopilot when I draw, like a mindless zombie, and I love it. I can't do that when I am writing or studying though, like how I am writing this journal, I can't put on a podcast and write at the same time, because I need attention to both for it to make sense, one mind cannot multitask two story driven activities. I duno, I find that interesting. Like how I can't read while having a conversation either, I am not sure if any human can actually? If you can, please let me know of your superpowers. I may wanna meet you, and steal your powerThis Mindless Zombie won't Sell Out11 months ago in Personal More Like This
EXTRA CREDIT - Tapper's Caricatures... ENGLISH…EXTRA CREDIT - Tapper's Caricatures...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When Ralph goes to Tappers bar and runs into the Hero's Duty soldier for the first time, John Musker and I did those caricatures of game celebrities on the wall.
The idea was to have it replicate the feel of a famous New York restaurant called Sardi's, where the walls are lined with caricatures of celebrities.
Here are a few of the ones I did.
Our director, Rich Moore.
Big thanks to Rich for giving me the chance to do these!

Wide content got Narrowed? The FIX??Okay, I got a blast of comments and notes recently because the people who were using the Wide Content code for their custom box widget stopped working.Wide content got Narrowed? The FIX??1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What the heck was the reaction for everyone!!
I know my friend, I know!!! Even my boxes are affected because of that.
The reason: It is due to the recent changes in the codes of devianART.com website (by the admins). And please do not go an ask them about it because they aren't going to fix it!! See the response below:
However, I have a GOOD news and a BAD news for you.
The BAD news is that the previous codes aren't going to work anymore.
The GOOD news (somewhat) is that I am working to find an alternate solution for this. I am also getting few suggestions from others for a workaround...Kudos for them and t

So yeah, last week was a blast of nostalgia and memories, mixed with modern awesomeness, all provided by the wonderful stories and visuals created by the Walt Disney Animation Studios !
I’m glad I was able to put all together for said instance almost on the last minute LOL And I had a lot fun doing it, discovering and rediscovering many classics I barely remember or actually was never able to watch before; that was something that honestly, felt like a goal accomplished for me XD
This marathon also helped me to understand the many achievements, yet also misconceptions around, the WDA Studios…
Just to make the point: the idea of Disney only making fairy tales is not true, it’s only what they’re best know by… but in fact, there’s no absolute prominence from said subject related to other ones they’ve worked on;

Someone linked me this video after seeing my Fashion Savvy Samus comic, and it quickly became apparent that a LOT of people defending Samus’s god-awful rocket boots were using THIS as their basis for argument. So, since this is the internet, I’m gonna respond to this video interjecting whenever I hear something I agree or disagree with.
1. I agree that we should separate Other M Samus from the rest of cannon based on the fact that it was conceived over a retcon of the character.
2. I agree that a lot of the hatred for Other M Samus came from her BADLY localized English translation and voice acting. I’ve stated many times that if the game had been left in Japanese with English subtitles, I sincerely doubt as many people would’ve had a problem with her “monologuing” than they do with the English version.
3. I do not agree that you should be “offended” that mal

so I went to my last con in [COUNTRY I LIVE] before I move back to my home country later this year. On Saturday I went as Taokaka from Blazblue and on Sunday I went as the Sonic Boom version of Sonic! It was bittersweet to get to see some of my cosplay friends here for the last time for a while. (It's not like it's the last time in forever since I'll be coming back here for holidays)
DAY 1: Taokaka
I caught a ride down with my friends to the con, which is in a city 1 & 1/2 hours away x_x it doesn't feel so long when you're travelling with friends and blasting J pop ♥
here are some of my favourite photos from the con! credit goes to respective photographers.
