Animecon 2013 workshops - The aftermathWoah! Animecon is over, but the workshops were great!Animecon 2013 workshops - The aftermath2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Especially the workshop on dynamic poses was busier than I expected. We had to close the room because there were no more spots available, and we even had a camera crew there that was working on some kind of documentary to film us. Although I have to admit that last part made me a bit nervous. I'm still shy when it comes to things like that.
Neverthless, I had a lot of fun.
I met many people. Ofcourse there was Light-Lein to help me out with my workshop (and I helped her out with hers). But there were many other people that I greeted. Many of those came from DeviantArt, the Mangaschool forums, and there were even those that I didn't recognize at all (I feel a bit guilty for that).
I was around at the dealing room as well and had an interesting conversation with Appeltjesgroen , who was doing commissions there, about how business went and how it worked getting a table at the convention. It's somehow an appealing idea t

Challenge 7 - Silent - TOP 7Congrats - Please share your love with them:Challenge 7 - Silent - TOP 72 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I am truly sorry for taking while and letting you all wait for the result. My truly apologize and here is the result of top 7:
Actually there are more than top 7 cause we have lot of great entries this time. But I only have enough points for 7 so we will have top 7 here. Some works are very good but didn't follow the rules therefore I can't choose them for top 7 too,
I am sorry for that ^^'
Also, not wanna to keep repeating again and again but for me, all are winners cause it's your beautiful drawings which you put all your soul and hearts in it. Top 7 is just like a pushing but winners are all ^^ .
And for peoples who are not in top 7 this time, please don't be upset. As the point of this challenge is not for winning but for improving and it's like a motivation for us to draw/work more on art .
Please never stop working and impro

Fave the journal.
I will use a random number generator, and corresponding to their number in the faves list, I will pick 5 people, one character each.

Discrimination Towards Anime In ART SCHOOL!So i just read an artical, and saw alll the negitive responses, about a particular cammy drawing. You can check it out for youself. But basically they were over critisizing a beautiful drawing. It was the first time I chimed in. But i Thought i'd share this with you as well, since deviantart is where the true art community lives.Discrimination Towards Anime In ART SCHOOL!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Little description of what i talk about. I talk about the "hater-ade" culture i experienced in ART SCHOOL. Discrimination towards ANIME! And BASHING ON OTHER PEOPLE! This includes TEACHERS WHO HATED on students. And let me put a disclaimer out there because I didnt mention it, 80% of the ART TEACHERS(not talking about the liberalarts teachers, pyschology, math, english etc.) were absolutely amazing, and I love them. 5% were so so. ANd the 15% or so left were of the hating decent.

The Making of YOSHINARI'S LITTLE WITCH ACADEMIAFor all aspiring artists/ students who whish to work in 2D animation production, and those already in 2D animation who know little to nothing about actual 2D animation production, here is but a glimpse of what it's like. This is also a pretty brilliant program enacted by Japanese grants to nurture the talent pool for the new generation. Watch director Yoh Yoshinari (gurren Lagaan, Evangelion, FLCL) train 5 young animators at his newly founded animation company STUDIO TRIGGER (KIll LA KILL), as he guides them through the process of helping him create the first episode of the wildly popular Little Witch Academia OVA. Inspiring stuff and a true peek behind the curtain of what it's like for young artists/creatives/animators who work under a giant like Yoshinari.The Making of YOSHINARI'S LITTLE WITCH ACADEMIA1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Animation/Art/Career/etc. Q and A?I've been working since graduating more than 4 years now, and I've improved a lot over these years. It's a very different environment from college to professional studio work. I have friends that graduated same year as me but some quit animation entirely and some are still trying to find an entry level job. I flew out to LA from NYC 1 month after graduating, for an internship at Titmouse, when there were merely 20-ish people around. I was hired after two months of testing, and my first job was a clean-up artist/animation in betweenner.Animation/Art/Career/etc. Q and A?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
a little side story, I signed up for "animation" major thinking it's 3d for game cinematics, and it turned out to be on paper, stayed 4 years, 3d seemed pretty technical as to learning the programs and know how to use it. Drawing is more... fun... and direct. Then I watched animation films like Ghost in the Shell, Jin Roh, Ninja Scroll... etc.
If anyone would like to ask any animation related questions pls comment below and I'd be happy to answer them.

No I don't need any help now lol
It's... kinda sad to see that my last entry was back in Aug, and it was about theft... but I just found out something new today.
I kinda got over (more like gave up) about this, but I found this rather amusing so I want to share with you guys.
As some of you may know, I have a FB account (which I don't log in that often /shot) and I happened to log in today... and I found a message in my inbox sent back in November.
It was a note from "one of the owners" of this online shop. I took a glance at it and she wrote it in proper English that I could actually read, and it started off in a friendly way - I thought it was a good start, but then I read the rest of the note and I just had to laugh at it.
Basically it said the following:
* "we did not publish your design as ours", but they print them on shirts when customers ask them to.
* "where they (customers) get the design and how they got it is beyond our contr

ANIME CURRICULUM?If there were an Art University in America that decided to introduce a "ANIME PRINCIPLES" class in their animation program, A class that would not only cover the art of creating TV production/feature anime, art history and it's understanding, but taught by, say-- Peter Chung-- with special periodical class visits throughout the semester by Japanese Animation Directors from Gainax, Madhouse, Studio Pierrot, Bones, Ghibli and Production I.G. ( with english translators of course) with the final thesis of a 3 minute short to be shown to them for judging. And the top graduates were to be awarded and a year internship at any of these studios,ANIME CURRICULUM?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Well, in simple, i'm having a contest.
Im looking for drawings of the adopts I have at the moment as I really don't want them to go to waste!
Anyway, my tablet broke so I couldn't make a reference sheet for any of them, but now that you are here then I can get start ^^
I kind of went a bit crazy buying adoptables and i've ended up with more than I thought i would get.
The contest will end on Sunday, the 25th of May.
What you have to do:
Draw any of my many characters I've adopted in any style you like, they will be listed at the bottom of this journal.
You may draw as many as you like in one entry, but be aware that I will also be rating you on links, so if you just add all the characters on my list to your drawing then you might get a lower rating.
You can make as many entries as you like, but only one may place in the rankings, so i'm basically ranking
