(...) 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? XD2 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!

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!

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 Out2 months ago in Personal More Like This

LiveStream Movie Marathon!IT'S DONE =3
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
Turbo, and why his fanbase is so large.Oh Turbo... Why are you so popular? I mean, You appeared in the movie for like what, 30 seconds? Well I'm here to answer why!Turbo, and why his fanbase is so large.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I first thought of making this after my "Turbo: Fanbase" drawing ( shown here http://koolkakashi123.deviantart.com/art/Turbo-Fanbase-347693911 ). I thought it Had finally stumped me. Turns out I needed some rest, so after I got up this morning, I finally had my revelation!
Reason 1: Cute factor. Many people find this character adorable, yellow teeth and all. Why? Because he falls under all the categories under which people consider "Cute". ie: big head, big eyes, shortness, chubbyness, lisp. Humans tend to find these things cute. Why you ask? well check out this video and it will explain everything you need to know about cuteness http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0zConOPZ8Y . Also his helmet and racer duds are ADORABLE!!! Ahem *clears throat*
Reason 2: Personality. This character has a hilarious personality! Always being flamboyant, sarcastic, and over-all g
Almost is Far from Actually (Felix and Calhoun)Sergeant Calhoun didn't leave his side after that moment. Even while Ralph and Venellope were doting over Felix, she was close by anxiously waiting, as if he was going to disappear any moment. She wished they could be alone, but she waited patiently until the celebration was over.Almost is Far from Actually (Felix and Calhoun)2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Felix could see the preoccupation in her eyes, and finally broke away from everyone and took her home.
As soon as the front door closed Felix was embraced in a tight hug by his wife. He knew this hug wasn't happy, but solemn, and almost mournful. He hugged her back and rested his head against her shoulder.
"It's ok, I'm here," He murmured and felt her tighten her grip around him. He rubbed her back in an attempt to console her.
Tamora didn't want to say anything. She was afraid that if she did something stupid would come out. Her worst fear had almost come true today. She had almost lost him, and just the thought made her chest tighten and feel barren. The fear she wasn't used to settled in making he
3 Legged Cat -updated-Update at the bottom!3 Legged Cat -updated-2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Mkay so, I have been disgustingly depressed this month. Earlier today, however, my cousin showed up unannounced, kidnapped me and took me to the Mall. Inside the mall was a pet store where any cat over 6 months was FREE to take home, plus a certificate for a free veterinarian visit! It's no secret to my family that I love cats, and I've been wanting one for a long, long time. (Though I've been hesitant, as any of my older followers might remember Spangles. R.I.P.)
So I walk in, and the place is flooded with people. Understandable, it's black Friday, after all. Second thing I notice is that it had about fifty dogs, and all but one were chihuahuas. |D We had to go all the way to the back to find the cats, and there were only three, if you could believe it.
I have a specific type of cat I like, Domestic Longhairs. Gorgeous long fur and so fluffy. The breed is known for being especially friendly, too. First cat I saw was a prissy looking calico that hissed at us. The
Happy Anniversary (Felix and Calhoun)"So, do you have any plans for tonight?" Ralph asked the small handyman that walked beside him. The arcade had just closed and they were walking across the roof of the apartment building. "Happy anniversary, by the way," He added awkwardly at the end.Happy Anniversary (Felix and Calhoun)2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Felix looked up at Ralph and smiled, "Thank you brother! And no, I didn't plan anything." He admitted confidently.
"What, Felix didn't plan anything for his first anniversary?" Ralph teased as he remembered the elaborate plan he did for Sergeant Calhoun's birthday. It had been grand and a complete success. Therefore Felix must be joking, but the small man didn't answer "No, seriously?" Ralph lifted his eye brows almost in concern.
Felix laughed and rested a friendly hand on his brother's arm "I know, I know! I just thought that this time I could let her decide what to do. I'm going to say yes to everything she requests." He stood tall and happy. Ralph burst out in loud riotous laughter.

The Almost part 3It was quiet and dark in the tower. Random lights blinked in the darkness casting red shadows that displayed the stained walls. Tamora's eyes darted back and forth, always alert even though she didn't really need to be. The program was still playing from the game she had started with Felix, and the cy-bugs would remain dead until it reset for a new go. Still, Sergeant Calhoun pulled her gun from behind her and it buzzed as it prepared to shoot, the familiar sound making her heart race. She ran through the place where hunter became prey and the sweat began to collect on her forehead. The countdown had begun.The Almost part 32 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The first few floors were desolate and gave her mind enough silence to haunt her.
"Hey, You're doing pretty good Fix-it." She complemented him while wiping her face clean form the green blood that splattered form the fresh kill.

In the Heat of the Moment (Felix and Calhoun)Felix was an optimistic, happy-go-lucky, cheerful person. If there was something good to say about anything he was always the first to point it out. If there was a way around anything dark, hopeless, or depressing he was the one to pave the path, and if you’re day was stabbing you in the back, he could sooth the wound.In the Heat of the Moment (Felix and Calhoun)2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
This was something everyone agreed on, but since his engagement to Sergeant Tamora Jean Calhoun, it was also agreed that his easy availability to happiness had supercharged. Now Felix could most certainly talk the doom out of doomsday and easily add a cherry on top. Happy had just gotten happier.
There was one exception however: he was still human.
Like everyone, Felix head insecurities, self-dissatisfactions, and things that could push his buttons. These simple truths can be easy to forget because most of the time Felix behaved as though they didn’t exists. Sometimes he would forget it himself, but there were days that were harder th
Mint Chocolate Chip (Felix and Calhoun)Felix awoke abruptly and was frozen stiff as he lay in bed. His eyes were wide open as he tried to see through the darkness. Nothing looked familiar, only the fear felt secure, but slowly shapes began to fill the room. A lamp here, a drawer there, and the door adjacent to it. The windows slowly became more visible and light came in. But still he couldn’t move. The sound of his quick shallow breaths kept him at bay.Mint Chocolate Chip (Felix and Calhoun)2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Slowly, slowly his grip loosened and his body sank into the mattress. He took a deep breath and reached up to feel his left eye, and to his relief it was unharmed. Just a dream… He let that sink in for a minute and then rolled over to try and find the comforting touch of his wife; but he felt nothing. There were just blankets. He sat up and looked harder, but sure enough she wasn’t there. Felix felt himself begin to enter the small state of panic again, but he closed his eyes and took a long deep breath. “She’s not gone.
