"'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."

His claws sheath and unsheathe into the damp, mossy ground. Micah didn't recognize this place at all. He felt so out of place here, in such a wild terrain. The large, sleek black tom was more used to the calm and easy life as a housecat. It wasn't that he was scared of the forest, it was just that it was unfamiliar to the feline. That, and the fact that

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.

EPI3 part 1 + IMPORTANT READHello everyone. Here is episode 3 part 1.EPI3 part 1 + IMPORTANT READ3 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-

How to Get Creative Ideas for Your NovelHow to get Creative Ideas for Your Novel - A beginner's guide.How to Get Creative Ideas for Your Novel2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Stuck in a rut with your novel or creative writing? Has it been left unfinished because you ran out of ideas? Is your muse gone?
Here is a few thoughts as to how to get your ideas back, maybe some fresh new thoughts for you.
Have you thought of the following to include in your writing?
Recent places you have visited
Recent people you have met
Art work you have seen recently
Perhaps you were watching tv and you saw an interesting character there on an add.
Try stopping and doing other types of art work, give it a rest
Try joining a new group or social situation, writing about this
Modify recent dreams to include or write about
Start an ideas journal or start simple poetry for ideas
Google is your friend
Free write - just write and write - see what develops on the page.
Here is some stellar examples from my current novel as to how I used unlikely ideas and dreams to include in my current novel.

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!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My Apologies!My sincerest apologies for those of you new visiting my page, or people checking it or whatever,My Apologies!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
and are seeing the extremely large attack/serge of hate I have been getting for "art theft"
It has to do with an individual I have had run ins with in past, (long story that doesn't need any more repeating)
said individual has not only stolen art/characters/concepts/ poses/NAMES and titles from me directly. But has never admitted to doing so even when it is exceedingly obvious, and has proceeded to gain a large fanbase and accuse ME of stealing from her. Even though I have direct dated proof that I made the artworks/named the characters first.
I'm not going to link her, because it's pointless to send hatred her way, and I don't even care if ya'll believe me. Just please know.
I am not an art thief, I have no desire to steal an immature artist's ideas or designs.
I am quite content with the ideas, characters and stories I have, thank you very much

Art and Commerce- and Workshop #4 next THURSDAYHey guys. In preparing for the next LIVE Character Drawing workshop (#4) next Thursday, I started writing my notes to organize my thoughts. I've decided to make the "lecture" section on a non-creative and not talked about subject that is ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT to us as artists that dream of drawing for a living- PRICING OUR ART. I've co-run my own art studio for 8 years and have been freelance for a year and a half after that, so I've been down this road for awhile now. It never gets easy putting a price on your artwork. There's a lot tied to it and our own confidence (or lack thereof) in ourselves and our abilities come into play. I'm not sharing the notes from the workshops because, ultimately, they will become another book down the road. BUT, I did want to share the beginning section below. I think it speaks to all of us and our passions to "get it right". Talk soon, TomArt and Commerce- and Workshop #4 next THURSDAY3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Prophecy: Searching in the Dark "Alright, so I called you all here today because of a prophecy," Micah began.The Prophecy: Searching in the Dark3 months ago in Personal More Like This
"A prophecy?" A voice in the crowd snickered in mock amusement, "What a load of mousedung! We haven't seen a whiff of a prophecy since the last of the Clans scattered!" The same cat meowed. It was the same black and grey cat that had assaulted Sugarwing earlier.
"Just let me continue," Micah continued briskly. "There is a prophecy. A prophecy of six cats who will come together and restore what was once theirs."
"This is dumb," Another voice whispered.
"Just listen to what he has to say, beebrains!" Spottedflight chimed obliviously. Micah gave her a hard stare before he went on with what he was saying. "Spottedflight, Sugarwing, Blazestorm, and I have all been having the same dream of starry cats coming to us with a prophecy. The cat who has mainly been visiting us is one by the name of Ironstar."
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 Due3 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.
ZOOPHOBIAI'm stuffy when it comes to books.ZOOPHOBIA3 months ago in Personal More Like This
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:
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.

watch it. It's amazing, seriously.

It's about werewolves, yes, but not cheesy, stupid Twilight "werewolves" or whatever... These are my new favorite type of werewolves, and I'll probably never think of werewolves as vicious bad-guys ever again.
This was a beautiful story of a mother and her two children. I loved the story, really did. I even sort of started wanting to have kids on my own as well I mean, Ami and Yuki were so sweet, and funny, and realistic - personality and behavior wise.
And their mother was a fantastic character. I really, really liked how she was portrayed.
I could go on about how much I just loved this movie.. But I'll shut up and just recommend it to you all instead.
Do yourself a favor, and watch this incredible movie

Sugarwing looked disgusted. "You? You're apart of the prophecy?"
Her tone only fueled Jude's fire. Flashing his golden yellow eyes up at her, he smirked. "I am indeed." He purred. Blazestorm narrowed his eyes and pressed his side against Sugarwing's. "You're disgusting."
"Oh, boo. I'm just having fun," Jude snickered.
"You've been dreaming of Ironstar?" Micah finally piped in.
"I have, yes. She's quite confusing, if I would say so myself." He said, his tail swaying. For some reason, Jude seemed relaxed. Micah just guessed that he had a good mask over his head, hiding his real personality. Maybe this Jude wanted to hide who he really was. But who would he be hiding from?

Many of you are aware of the Alice: Otherlands Kickstarter. For those who aren't, I would like to make you aware of it! American McGee has acquired film rights to the "Alice" property and is ramping up for a series of animated short films featuring our favorite tortured, blood-soaked heroine. The Kickstarter is within its last 66 hours of funding and needs your help to become a reality!
Please visit the Alice: Otherlands Kickstarter page to check out the video, and throw money at it! If you are unable to fund then please at least pass on the message to friends and other fans.
I love ALICE and the world that American McGee and Spicy Horse have created, and I hope they reach their target goal - we need more madness in this world!
