ZOOPHOBIA IS ALIVE! -week hiatus-The First 10 Pages are up for viewing! Most of the site is still being worked on by me and my friend Stephen (mostly him, cause I'm a derp), But so far he worked his magic beyond what I could ever hoped for! There are also some new links on the site, I made a new twitter and facebook page if ya'll like such things! So now I'll just be working on more pages, I have a bunch to post, but I'm not gonna start my scheduled posting for a lil while, since I really want to have ALL the pages done, though SOON! I hope you guys enjoy these first 10 teaser pages <3ZOOPHOBIA IS ALIVE! -week hiatus-2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Call for all singers/songwriters/Musicians!watching a fan-animated song reminded me of how bad I want to animate to music/a song.Call for all singers/songwriters/Musicians!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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
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.

Credit Where Credit Is DueGetting 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.Credit Where Credit Is Due2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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.
EPI3 part 1 + IMPORTANT READHello everyone. Here is episode 3 part 1.EPI3 part 1 + IMPORTANT READ2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First thing is, Zing left the project officially and we're going to continue without her. You can watch why here, the video she made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTuTyflipx4
I'll be honest, Yuji and Zing were great animators that both go/went to college, and we haven't so far. We're basically self taught, and we've got a lot to learn. Them leaving may change things a bit, but we'll still try our best to animate the best we can. It's not a professional animation and keep that in mind, it's just a fanimation and we don't have a lot of experience with animation yet, though I've personally learned a lot the past 2 years I was part of SSS Warrior cats.
If you disagree with the change and those two animators leaving (Basically all ORIGINAL animators / directors are gone now), and you'll expect the same quality and style, you may want to un-

XDD Hi, it's aluri!
So Willi and me, the animators of sss agreed to do another Q&A, but this time with Willi, the director, me, the prior director and Artiego, the Bluestar voice actor!
So it works just like the other one.
Ask who wat:
Wanton: Animation stuff, general stuff
Aluri: Animating stuff, general stuff, Voice acting stuff (She voice acts too. Mousefur in sss)
Bluestar: Voice acting stuff, general stuff
To aim the question at Bluestar's VA for example, type "bluestar: What mic do you use"
Remember, ask Bluestar things about voice acting, and ask Willi and me about animating! :'D Things you couldnt do last time!
have fun asking questions haha!

Legit, for a long time I have been feeling like a total monster on this site because of being busy IRL and just being lazy and selfish I have been letting messages pile up and NOTES TOO ffffff

I've been promising you this comic for YEARS, and I'm only just now getting on it. and now with starting I honestly feel like I don't deserve any of the praise I get until its up and started.
you guys are sooo good to me.
You guys motivate me, you guys help me out of sadness, you help me feel good about my artwork, about my progress through the years.
you may think I don't know you, but TRUST ME when I say that many of you guys who have stuck with me from the start, i recognize you guys immediately and always smile HUGE when you comment or fave.

THE VOICE ACTING TRYOUTSWhy hello there! You all might have been wondering about my recent poll about voice acting.THE VOICE ACTING TRYOUTS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, obviously, I will tell you.
I'm kinda bored of looping animations and I wanted to experiment more with short animations that actually end for once with a replay button. But I like shorts that have sounds, music, voices, all that good stuff in a movie. So what I'm thinking, I'm going to get me some voices! How do I do that? well, First of all, I'll have some try-outs for some of my characters and such. Best voice gets to be picked as the character! However, I won't have you choose which character, for it's going to be harder to try and act it out as them, so what I'm going to do is to have you try your best with voice acting, and I'll put you under the character that suits your voice the best!
How will I know? Simple, I'll have a list of lines for you to say, and in a tone, try to speak it. Some lines will be only for males, females, and some lines for both genders. I won't say how or what

Don't Go to Art School (Response)https://medium.com/i-m-h-o/138c5efd45e9 <--- Read this, dudesDon't Go to Art School (Response)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I agree with this post but I've never told anyone to not to go to art school or university.
People ask me all the time what school do I go to (ALL THE TIME). I always respond "just a cheap state university", but it kinda of bugs when people want me to be specific when it really doesn't matter.
I don't like the bureaucratic system in my university. I think taking GE classes are a waste of time and should only count as electives. I hate how the university uses the horrible methods to teach us art since it never works. I hate how the Art Department does not offer a lot of classes compared to other departments.
I took over five Animation classes and none of them helped me. What helped me was studying from the "Preston Blair Animation book". I studied it on my own time when I was doing an internship in Florida (nothing to do with my career but it was fun).
I've seen students struggle because they were not taught properly how t
