CARTOON SECRETSSSSSSSSSSSSSS (Part One)I get about a million emails a day asking me how to get into animation, and what schools and whatnot. And since I’d hate for amazing artists to end up doing something they hate for the rest of their lives when all they need was a few tips and some secrets and support… I'll try to do those things.CARTOON SECRETSSSSSSSSSSSSSS (Part One)7 years ago in Personal More Like This
My parents drilled into me that artists can't make a decent living. They wanted me to be a bizzzzzznesss maaaan. Really bad. But I would have rather been homeless.! A homeless adventurer...
I hoped to figure out some way to have adventures and do art and scrape by. I spent about six years traveling around hopping trains, exploring jungles in South America and working on fishing boats. Traveling and writing and drawing and painting. I wanted to turn that somehow into illustrated adventure books... but I never finished anything.
I tried to settle down and go back to
STORY TELLIN'...IF YOU WANT TO PITCH A SHOW, IF YOU WANT OT WRITE/STORYBOARD FOR TV AND MOVIES, YOU GOTTA LEARN THIS STUFF. AND HURRY! WE NEED YOU!!!STORY TELLIN'...5 years ago in Personal More Like This
The following is a super basic breakdown of a three act story structure. Of course, this isn't all there is to it, but its enough to get you started. People think that because FLAPJACK (and ADVENTURE TIME) are bananas, we just throw story structure out the window (and that we do lots of drugs). But you need to set up expectations in the audience before you can surprise them, and keep them emotionally invested in the characters so that they stay engaged.
Basic Story Structure:
ACT I – Setup (1/4 of episode)
The first act should answer two questions:
1) Who is the episode about. (the main person in this particular story who’s emotions we’ll track from beginning to end)
2) What happens to their life that has to be resolved.

SNEAKING IN (part II)**SCHOOLS:SNEAKING IN (part II)7 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've enrolled in (and dropped out of) quite a handful of schools. Calarts blew all of the others away for me, by like a million times. Because it was superspecific to what I wanted to learn.
That is one of the huge plusses of going to a school like calarts. You get a huge percentage of people going into the same field, and you already know who you'd wanna work with... (plus there's a huge ratio of students who will actually work in the industry, and teachers who currently work in the industry, and can hook you up...)
Yes, its expensive. Get student loans. Apply for food stamps. Sleep in your car. Make some sacrifices. It’ll pay off for the rest of your life. ESPECIALLY if you make sacrifices. Because you’ll work harder, with more direction. There are also scholorships (although at calarts, they are stingy your first year, then they g

Seriously, why is the the CreepyPasta Fandom almost 70% of the time filled with horrible rip off/Sues that aren't even remotely original nor creepy/scary?! I'm not joking on this, I urge you guys to find me one CP OC who is both creepy/scary and original in some way.
Now I know that this isn't all true, I've actually seen a couple of CP OC/ that are very well done, and some I've actually labeled some as "Would not want to see them in real life", but I'm only talking about a small portion of OCs!!
Now, I'm not saying my CP OC Quinn is the best, because honestly I can point out a couple of OCs who are better than Quinn appearance and story wise, and I'm not saying people should bow down to me for creating a CP OC who isn

Policy StatementThis is ridiculous to me, but I guess to be 100% fair to all who visit this page, I ought to post this statement up front:Policy Statement3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have made it clear from the outset that I am simply not interested in arguing with people with opposing views over the internet. To disregard that request is, in my view, trollish behavior. "Discussion" is a waste of my time. Every minute I spend "arguing" with someone (who has not arguments, but rather, beliefs) is a minute spent away from poastering, sending emails, making phone calls, trying to raise a little money, and other useful things to advance Occupy/Anon/anti-SOPA, and other progressive movements.
If someone wants to discuss on this page how to advance the goals of Occupy, Anon, anti-SOPA, pro-women, 'green,' etc., or, how to make these poasters more effective (including suggestions and requests), they will be welcomed and their comments will receive a courteous reply. If people want to exchange friendly, admiring, helpful, or even flirtatio

I don't really have a lot of OCs. But what about those which I have? I don't really like to use them when trying out new techniques or practice. Which is why I've decided to host an OC contest. The main goal is simply to create an OC for me!
LAST DAY TO ENTER
This is a list of things I'd like to see in the OC: http://sta.sh/01nqhwlhdjqj
Keep in mind that this is a very long list of random things I like. Don't put all the things possible into one design, I'd rather you pick about three things which you'd like to focus on and not half of the list!
Or check out some designs I've favorited here: http://reblog.deviantart.com/favourites/
Deadline: 4th of November
Might extend it on request or if I have something which might come up at the time. Keep in mind that it's summer now and you might have more free time now than in autumn.

1st scene, in bird's eye view of stromwind, epic, fantastic and amazing.
Sunset is shining above the city, indicates that the war is coming
An armory in Stormwind. Shining shields on walls and weapons by racks.
Scene into the Throne Hall of King, so holy! King Llane is sitting on throne, Lothar and Medivh (I guess) standing in front of throne.
Close up of King Llane is thinking, maybe he's hearing Lothar reporting the war
In Blasted Lands (or outland?), a green lightning pierces the sky
Horde now! The
