Never thought I'd be a stranger to this place, but I'm just never around here anymore. Wouldn't you know it, this working business takes a lot of time and energy.
Work's been super fast-paced, intriguing, challenging. I don't believe the range of things I've worked on in the past two-point-five months. Traditional animation, Flash animation (oh god so much Flash animation), concept art (the funnest stuff of all, why am I even getting paid for this?), proposals, games, toys, icons, exactly one squillion in-game items, websites, user interfaces, and on and on. SO COOL. We seem to be short-staffed, or just generally over-burdened (the guys have told me this is pretty much the busiest they've seen the place), so I've been racing through the daily minefield of surprise deadlines to keep abreast of the big thundering monster ones. But it's the speed and the unknown schedule that makes every day interesting. And a complete blur afterwards. I am so l
EXTRA CREDIT - ZBrush's Early Character Designs ENGLISH…EXTRA CREDIT - ZBrush's Early Character Designs2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The process of creating characters at Disney is an evolving, collaborative effort. We start with a strong design and must maintain the appeal it conveys throughout the animation pipeline. The design evolves throughout the process, but a large part of what we do is maintaining the attitude and personality of the original drawing as it translates into 3D.
We use ZBrush at WDAS as a tool that allows us to make changes and explorations quickly with designers and animators. We can explore facial expressions, and test out proportion adjustments on the fly without waiting for draw-overs or note sessions.
It's always an interesting challenge translating a drawing to 3d, but particularly at Disney I've felt an importance to keeping true to the use of linework that is such a basic component of the Disney animation 'feel'. We are trying to keep the spirit of a 2d drawing in 3d space. Using the ZBrush tools has helped enormously
Live the dream, don't talk about it!Doug TenNapel, independent comics creator, is an inspiration to me in many ways. He has a fun, accessible art style that is dramatic and fresh. His story telling is always askew in the best of ways. I don't think I've read one of his graphic novels without having some smiles and a surprise or two along the way. On top of that, he is outspoken about almost everything in his life. (I think of him as the Rush Limbaugh of comics- oh man, that sounds really bad, but early Rush, not present day Rush, if that helps.) I agree with most things he states on Facebook. BUT- the thing I am most inspired about him is his drive (in the old days we would call that "work ethic"). The guy does NOT give up. Because of that, he single-handedly will put out a new graphic novel a year. While creating a webcomic. While pitching new TV show development ideas in Hollywood. While running a half marathon. While working freelance jobs.Live the dream, don't talk about it!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

My dresses made in realHi friends.My dresses made in real3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some days ago some of you found out two girls that made the Facebook dress http://neko-vi.deviantart.com/gallery/36793491#/d4o1dxe and Twitter dress http://neko-vi.deviantart.com/gallery/36793491#/d4s56w3 in real. Here is the link to their page: http://animexx-en.onlinewelten.com/cosplay/mitglied/340228/order_1_0/364175/
On my deviantART profile, under my deviantID, there is a caption: probably just 5% of my visitors have read it, but you can see some rules, and one of these rules says:
"«Can I sew your dresses in real?»
I'm sorry, but I can't let anyone make my dresses. I want to make them one day, so because of creative and security reasons I can't let you do this."
My works have been posted around the web, so these girls probably didn't even know about me, probably they saw two cute dresses and decided to make a cosplay, in real.
It turned out very well! Yeah, they're beautiful. But they broke the rules, the LAW. I have never gave the permission t

Wolven's How Not to Be Annoying Part 3Hello deviantart, and welcome to How Not to be Annoying PART THREEEE~ it's like a bad Hollywood sequel xD you know? Part three with big explosions and then the name comes up- BOOOOOMWolven's How Not to Be Annoying Part 33 years ago in Personal More Like This
So yes, let's get started~
In this one I'm gonna be talking mainly about commissioners o3o
1. Talk Like an Adult
Meaning professionally. And I get this from time to time, a person wanting to commission me won't talk professionally. I kid you not, they talk to me like a child would, or talk down to me like I am the child. This is one of my personal pet peeves. They go "can you pweese draw mee? i'm bwu and i hash stwipes"
Okay, not only is this demeaning the person you're asking artwork from, but it also makes you look like you have an IQ of negative ten. Don't do it. Treat every commission as if it were you talking to your boss, or another co-worker....and if baby talk is how you communicate in your life, well.. I dunno, that's just pretty messed up.
2. Stop Nagging
Do not nag. Naggers.

==> You are Jade Harley and Dave Strider is so sweet!
You skip up to the coolest kid the the neighbor hood Dave Strider. "Hey Dave!! What's up?" Your hands fumble around behind your back nervously. You have had a crush on him for almost 3 years. "Who are you talking too?" He looks up from his phone and smirks at you through his glasses.
"Oh just this person," he responded. "Flipping all my shit right now like, holy fuck this person is awesome." You look at him sort or disapointed but curious. Who was it that was so cool to Dave Strider!?
"Can you tell me Dave? I wanna know!" You give him a puppy dog smile in hopes he will tell you.
"No it's a secret. You can't find out Jade I want this person all to myself, okay?" He looks a little distant and you sigh. Wow he really liked this person. That.. sucks, you think. Your mood just bolted down from a 10 to a -5. You try to change the subject.
"So other than tha-" You start before he interrupts you.

1/3 cup unsweetened soy milk
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup unscented liquid bubble bath
Heat (but do not boil) the soy milk and cocoa powder and stir until blended. Let cool.
Add the bubble bath and stir.
Pour the entire batch into the tub. Enjoy!
Anti-Zit Face Mask
1 Tbsp. cruelty-free baking soda
1-2 Tbsp. filtered water
Mix the baking soda and water together until you've got a paste.
Apply to your face and leave on for about 20 minutes.
Rinse and follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer.
1 aspirin tablet (contains salicylic acid, which helps unclog pores)
Crush the aspirin with the back of a spoon and add just enough water to form a paste. Apply to the blemishes and let sit for about 15 minutes before rinsing.
Another spot treatment trick is to take a dab of cruelty-free toothpaste (the white paste kind, not the gel), and apply it to blemishes. Leave on overnight. This will dry out zits quickly.

Alloweth me to become quite sappy, dear deviants and beloved watchers, for I have to admit something I've been feeling about y'all. I escaped dA to be on Tumblr and I'll tell you - it's fun, it's addicting, it's just awesometastic - but I could not help but keep on checking back here. And you know when they say stuff like "They are not actual friends," or "Once ya leave, they'll leave too and go on to check out other things like you were never there"?
I believed that, I accepted it, it sounds more than realistic and I've seen a grand many cases in which an artist leaves this site/any site and everyone kinda vanishes on 'em. Makes sense.
But dudes. I come back on after a whole month and eight days to throw very simple sketches and whatever from Tumblr at you guys and then the biggest surprise hit me that you all are still there. Although I've been gone for such a while and have be

Urban Exploration #4Climbing The ShardUrban Exploration #42 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Last year, Urban Exploration was thrown into the spotlight when images of a student who evaded security at 'The Shard' in London started to circulate - he'd shimmied up to the top of the tallest building in Europe... Behind this particular stunt was The London Consolidation Crew - they like to climb buildings after dark. And why not? The views can be incredible. It once again highlights how Urban Exploration isn't 'making a nuisance of yourself' as so many think, but rather, showing the world what they are missing out on. Photography is just a small part of Urban Exploration but the advancement of digital media is a huge asset. You can read more about The Shard stunt here.

why my dad is the bestok so I had to share this with you because it cracked me up so bad.why my dad is the best3 years ago in Personal More Like This
back story: my dad has been in Afghanistan for 6 months and he just came home for Christmas. We picked him up at the airport today
He got out from the uniform and had changed into normal clothes when he got home. And being in Afghanistan he has to grow a beard, for undercover purposes and such. And the beard he has grown in pretty much the same as Tony Stark. So my dad pretty much looks like the baby of Tony Stark and Hawkeye. keep that in mind.
So he gets out of the bathroom all changed, and he had fucking went out and bought; the Black Sabbath shirt that Tony wears in The Avengers.
Imagine how much I fangirled all over the floor. My dad loves superhero movies, especially marvel. My mom thought we were crazy, but I'm now here in my captain america shirt with my dad and his iron man shirt. we're the biggest fangirls
On a uniform there's Velcro on the arms and chest for badges and such. And before I go on,

Appreciate Voice Overs and AnimatorsMarcia Wallace (Voice of The Simpsons Mrs. Krabappel) passed away and it's been a stark reminder to appreciate those who bring your favorite cartoons to life.Appreciate Voice Overs and Animators2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When we watch a cartoon, you don't really think about the people who voice them. They're just there. They don't seem to have age or a mortality to them. In our minds we tend to think of cartoons as immortal. You can drop an anvil on them and they just keep going. Unfortunately, those who give them life, through voice acting and animation, do not. Something to consider when watching any cartoon. Enjoy them, appreciate them. More importantly appreciate the talents behind them. They wont be around forever. (Myself included unfortunately) Stupid mortality.
First Tutorial of 2014!Took a little time to make a weighting tutorial. Its basically showing work flow on how to deal with some area's of the body specifically in PMX editor because of its nature. The technique can be used on almost all parts of the body that I didn't have time to go over. I tried to cover the most important aspects of weighting so it should be enough to help or get you started while using the PMX editor.First Tutorial of 2014!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I apologize for the length of the video but I thought you guys might appreciate me showing as much as I could. Usually weighting takes days and usually takes classes to do professionally so to condense it down isn't easy..
Also went over a little bit of the trick for knee pads that I didn't share when Ani-Chan was being worked on. ^^
This new version has enhanced audio. Sorry about the last one!
Next tutorial will probably be a physics one. Probably will be weighting miku's hair or something. xD
