So yeah contest time.(EDIT NEW CHARACTERS)

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 4, 2013, 3:15 PM


Stole the idea (with permission :icontrollfaceplz: ) from :iconlady-of-mars:


"'Picture perfect moments.'- A pretty open theme. Draw mine and your OC's of choosing in a scene that could be taken as a photograph. This gives opportunities for photo-bombing, spur of the moment photo's and interaction of the characters with the unseen photographer.

This doesn't mean your drawing has to look like a realistic photograph, what I'm looking for is a nice use of composition of characters in typical photograph poses. Maybe add a border or frame to your image if you'd like.

You can do more than one photograph, So collages, album pages etc are also fine, but they will only count as one entry."

I'd like to see either/or/both/all/whatever:

MAIN ENTR - THE DEMON KING
This is what I'm reall after, a good solid devil design. He should be intimidating, and I'd like to see interesting, imaginative designs!

- strangel colored skin is welcome but not necessar

SECOND CATEGOR -
Technicall this one is supposed to be a demon king as well, but I'm going for something completely different with this one. This king should be a child, with a calm, stern expression. He should be regall dressed, but still a cute little kid
-I prefer dark skin on this one
- I would like horns and a tail, but what kind of up to ou

Entries :: Still none yet!

THIRD DESIGN TPE -
This one is much more free-form. I hardl have an set ideas for this one. Essentiall I want a cowardl demon. He should be somewhat genderless in appearance, but other than that, give me our most interesting demon designs! He should be abused and scard looking, but remember he should still be a demon, and those can be scar!

Credit Where Credit Is Due

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 8, 2012, 1:01 PM
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Getting credited for the work you do is the most simple wish that is shared by every single artist alive. Whether you draw stick figures doing something silly, or unique master works of scenes from fantastical worlds, or characters ranging from simple and cartoony to complex, detailed and realistic. You obviously want to get a little acknowledgment for your work, even if it's a simple thumbs up or anything really.

So it is incredibly understandable to be upset or disheartened when people mistake work you do for the work of another artist. Whether be simply because they saw the character or concept done by someone else first before seeing what was originally done. Or just something similar.

It can be as simple as not checking the credits most artists give when they draw characters that belong to others, it can be a careless first glance mistake, but that doesn't really excuse the fact that when you mistake a character or concept for the wrong artist who did it, it annoys and hurts them.

as simple as that anger most artists (people with brains) get when they hear ignorant people praising Tim Burton's work on Nightmare Before Christmas or Coraline, and leaving the true genius Henry Selick in the dust of his friend's name.

It is a sad fact of life people don't always like to give credit where credit is due, for reasons ranging from misinformation to downright ignorance.

But It really is disheartening to everyone involved.

Online many of us artists have close ties with each other, each other's work, and each other's characters. But just because we will draw each other's characters as gifts or trades, doesn't mean that they are ours, or people have the right to immediately group everything together in the same project.

Speaking as the creator of "Zoophobia"

which is my personal webcomic, which as most of my fans know has a wide and abundant cast of characters. It isn't very hard to distinguish which characters are mine, vs characters that belong to other artists and have absolutely nothing to do with my webcomic's plot or theme.

I felt the need to write this little notice because as of late I have been hearing disheartening things, and I don't really want my work mixed in with other's works. Understandably people get confused when all they see are the characters floating around on their own, and they are drawn by more then one artist even for fun. But now my comic is started and has a definitive website and more focused place to learn and see the characters of the comic, I would hope to see less of people confusing what is a part of ZP, and what is the work of other people.

I will also start to make sure I am a tad more clear when I state something is  a part of ZP, just to be safe <3

I'm stuffy when it comes to books.

If I can't have a copy in my hands, my desire to read drains away.  I'm very sorry, All Webcomics- but if trees haven't died to bring us together, odds are we won't meet.

But I stumbled across Zoophobia- and, hot damn.  Intense, vibrant, it blew through my fuddy-duddy preferences and had me hooked.  If you haven't seen it yet, just take a glimpse:

zoophobiacomic.com/

The cartoony style explodes with life.  It's manic, distorted, potent- reminiscent in some ways of Ren and Stimpy.

Now, as a kid, I never really got into Ren and Stimpy.  It's a great cartoon, of course- it was groundbreaking with its perfectly articulated vulgarity.  Other cartoons have followed in it's footsteps, using exaggerated visuals to amplify their satire.

I think as a kid, that's why I never got heavily into Ren & Stimpy.  I had a thirst for emotionally relatable stories, but their style was used to spotlight grotesque absurdity.  

And in mainstream cartooning, that's what this dynamic style came to be used for- sarcastic depictions of stupidity.  Suitable for mockery, or shows that patronize children.  

Not so with Zoophobia.  

I think that's one of the reasons I love the series-  it's a counterpoint, proving that exaggerated cartooning isn't by definition limited to derisive caricature.

Vivienne takes this beautiful style and uses it with sincerity and verve.  The characters are distinctive and lively- and while humor is present, it isn't used to denigrate the cast.  They're fleshed out over time, allowing a full spectrum of emotions and drama to emerge, amidst a wildly imaginative yet coherent fantasy world.

If that sounds like your cup of tea, try the link above and give it a read!  And, hey- free cartoon!  Vivienne posted her award-winning thesis animation not long ago:    

www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCuseh…

She's got a Patreon here:  www.patreon.com/VivienneMedran…
And a tumbler:  zoophobiacomic.tumblr.com/

So if you were ever curious, go forth and enjoy the visual incarnation of fun.

watching a fan-animated song reminded me of how bad I want to animate to music/a song.

I'd love to do a song that told a story for thesis but didn't think I'd find one in time or have someone willing to sing one/ect/ect.

plus the whole copyright issue and what have you, but the internet is full of music artists and ya know who knows!
anyways right now I'm kinda going into a dark place as far as what my thesis will be, I have lots of ideas but doubts about all of them, so tell you what.

If you are a musician, or KNOW a musician who writes songs or has songs, and just all that, and would be at all interested in a  song being FULLY animated, or singing a song to be animated, LET ME KNOW

email me at 

vivienne.medrano@yahoo.com

link me examples of your work, songs and what have you.

This is not a definite thing, but I figure while I struggle to decide on a definite thesis, I might as well leave this open for people if they are at all interested in their music being animated.

If you know any online musicians or singers, please pass the word along!

I'd love to animate to a song, it's been my dream since ever <3
