The reason non Japanese Manga isn't doing well!I have been waiting to address this topic again for some time now. I don't think a lot of you realize what's really going on with Manga here in the states and for those who do manga that are not Japanese. So for everyone who aspires to try manga for any reason and want it to be a success or stick out from the garbage heap. You may want to listen to what i have to say. Take notes and open your mind, if you have a closed mind then i advise you to be open. This may not be the journal post for you if you are closed minded. Ok now that's out of the way let's begin.The reason non Japanese Manga isn't doing well!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who don't know your history Ameri Manga was a thing. It started off in the what early 2000's. Well it failed miserably needless to say for whatever reason. Ok so Then Bleach comes out and there's this huge jump in fans and amateur artist wanting to make their own personalized manga. So credit Bleach for this huge leap and jump for others to try and produce their own manga.
Now we fast forward to today

Beware The BatmanI caught the first episode of Beware the Batman.Beware The Batman2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What a pile of rancid, charm-free, cheap-looking, poorly written, spineless, generic pap.
To start with, I hate the character design. There's nothing memorable about anyone you see on screen, with the exception of Batman's strange cranial deformation. It looks like someone's been hitting him over the head with a mallet, which is entirely possible given that Alfred has turned into Cato, from The Pink Panther: randomly attacking his employer to keep him on his toes.
And then we have the villains. Batman has, arguably, the best Rogues Gallery in fiction. It's that which makes his stories so interesting, not the brooding. You'd think with the opening episode, they'd want to start strong, or at least hint at some major threat, lurking in the shadows.
Instead, they give us a man dressed as a pig and a frog-man that burps.
And what's with the f**king laser guns?! If any one franchise is ideal for carrying an anti-gun
Expiration DateI love the Team Fortress 2 short movies. They're like little Pixar films......just with violence, blood, dismemberment and a general disregard for health, safety and human life.Expiration Date1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Simple Life Drawing tipHey all,Simple Life Drawing tip1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Through helping students at CDA, one thing that I see a lot of is the tendency to just draw when the model poses.
To be honest you will get less done drawing this way. It's also important to learn how to sharpen your pencil properly.
When the model poses, take about 30 seconds and observe. If you've been practicing your mental manikin then this will
be easier. Starting with what is the model doing? Which way is the head oriented? Which shoulders is higher? Where
is the pinch and stretch side? Etc...
Doing this gives you a battle plan, even before you make a mark on your drawing pad. You'll be surprised at how much more
you edit your marks when you start putting down lines. Remember that even before you get likeness, lighting, form, etc.
your base lay in should be clear. Meaning that anyone who looks at it should be able to tell what's going on.
There will be examples of this soon and also in the BAD drawing notes book

While this isn't much news, keep in mind that the last time we got a year date it wasn't actually so far away from the actual date. Even so, "later this year" could even still refer to as late as next fall, or even winter. Still, it's nice to know it's coming this year!

The Turtles TrailerI am absolutely delighted with it. It’s everything I hoped it would be: Terrible.The Turtles Trailer1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Had it looked GOOD, there would have been this nagging feeling that I’d be missing out on something if I stuck to my vow of never again watching another Michael Bay movie. I have fond childhood memories of the Turtles, so I may have weakened. But because it looks like, well, a Michael Bay movie, that feeling simply isn’t there. I have no desire, at all, to pay for or sit through that film.
Transformers 3 was the last chance I was willing to give. I thought “There’s no way it could actually be WORSE than Transformers 2. I’ll give it a shot”.
Somehow…. it was.
That was it. That was the breaking point. No more Bay. EVERYTHING he goes near is pure effluent, and all the evidence you need of how toxic a film Turtles is going to be is in that trailer.
Obviously, we don’t know what the plot is at this point, but it’s a
Things I Wish Comics Would Stop DoingLater this week SYAC will be posting a series of “Things I Wish Comics Would Stop Doing” strips. This is the start of what might be an ongoing series within SYAC in general, though it really depends on how well it goes over...Things I Wish Comics Would Stop Doing1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In the past I’ve drawn my own artwork to explain things, but that’s always resulted in people accusing me of not knowing what I’m talking about and demanding actual sources. I don’t like the idea of using actual sources because my criticism of these techniques could easily be misinterpreted as criticism against specific artists, which is entirely the wrong idea. A lot of the time, these are pervasive techniques used throughout the mainstream (American) comic industry and are not the fault of any one particular artist. It’s more of a condemnation of perpetuating “bad habits” than anything else.
As a result, this new batch of “Things I Wish Comics Would Stop Doing” strips will feature actual artwork

I need feminism because
It’s acceptable to call me a slut.
You do realize that you are calling prostitutes inferior? If there is nothing wrong with being a prostitute, there is nothing wrong with being called one. I don't think there is anything wrong with being a prostitute, personally, so long as no coercion is involved.
If we consider the meaning "Slut is a term applied to an individual who is considered to have loose sexual morals or who is sexually promiscuous" then the problem is even less obvious. Stop treating it as an insult and just say "Yeah. So what, Mother Theresa?"

It’s okay for a guy to slap my butt.You are talking about frivolous sexual harassment lawsuits, rights? I've had my butt slapped by girls. If they are crossing the line, I tell them.

All the required characters have been turned in, so that means the final due date is one month from now on February 6th.
You can still sign up for characters, but the due date for any character is February 6th, even if you sign up a week before that day.
Also, since we only have one month left, people who've reached their max amount of charcters can do a few more if they wish. Let's say... three more if they so choose.
For this collab, we will be drawing all the Disney girls we can!
:iconattention-plz: PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BEFORE SIGNING UP! I don't want you to draw a character and not be allowed in because you missed a rule. ;_;
Any girl character can only be in the collab once. In other words, if someone has already taken her, then you can't sign up for her.

I saw your blog on the website onanimation.com and was blown away by your drawings. I sent it around to all the animators at DreamWorks where I work, and everyone really loved your stuff.
Have you finished college? Have you applied to any of the studios? ie DreamWorks? If not, I could send you names of people here to send it too. I dont know if we are looking - but a studio would be crazy to not employee you right now!!!
You are at Nemo right? Did you get to meet Sandro when he was there? He is a good friend of mine. We worked on Me and My Shadow together.

Years and BeersThey say wisdom comes with age. That's debatable, since there's no shortage of stupid old people wandering around the globe. It's probably one of them that came up with the idea that you should respect people just because they haven't died yet. Well...maybe you should, especially if they're older than you, which means they're demonstrably better at not dying than you are. In any case, in my time on this planet, I've learned not to touch live wires, play "chicken" with freight trains, or run naked through rush hour traffic, so the years have blessed me with SOME knowledge (better to run through rush hour traffic fully clothed; better STILL to wear a helmet and a thick layer of protective padding; possibly best not to do it at all).Years and Beers2 years ago in Personal More Like This
