We Animate Things - the Studio of the FutureWhile I look for a new job to replace the one that disappeared earlier this year, I've been working on a new animation project, and actually working with other people on it. This is a first step towards eventually assembling an animation studio, under the label We Animate Things, or WAT.We Animate Things - the Studio of the Future2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, most animators I know have dreams of someday starting their own studio, and "doing it right, darn it"! But what I have in mind is a little different, specifically because most of the differences WAT will have are based on the fundamental business/organization/financial model of the company - NOT on the method or subject of the cartoons it will produce.
We Animate Things is a worker-cooperative.
Put simply, the company is owned collectively by its employees (or member-owners), at a one-person-one-vote level of control. I originally stumbled upon this form of business trying to answer the question "What if I don't want to make a non-prof
Inanimate Insanity Episode 7 - Complaints ResponseOkay, so for the most part, almost everyone who watched the episode liked it. I was so happy and full of joy to find this out, as we have been working on it for so long now. The ratings are about 99%, and the episode has over 10,000 views and it hasn't even been a day yet. So yes, very overwhelming and exciting.Inanimate Insanity Episode 7 - Complaints Response10 months ago in Personal More Like This
But I was reading some of the negative comments as well, because I do want to see both sides of the coin. It's easy to just ignore criticisms, but I think reading people's thoughts and considering them is what will make me a better writer. Now, for the most part though, I disagree with a lot of these complaints, but I thought I'd address them and give me point of view. And, for laughs, I'll address each complaint with an immature rendition of one!

Fantastic Stock and where to find it - Feature 16I’ve been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artistsFantastic Stock and where to find it - Feature 163 years ago in Art Features More Like This
works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can’t provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I’m sure you’ll agree, just click on their deviation.

Time to Move on... Hey allTime to Move on...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
How you guys doing?
I'm leaving the MLP stuff.
Basically, the point of this journal (I'll try not to make it too long.) is that I'm getting ready to move on from the whole My Little Pony scene.
It's been fun, guys, but let's face it, I was only going to keep it up for so long.
As you have probably noticed, despite (attempting) to make comics for the last few months, I've pretty much fallen out of the whole MLP fandom scene.
Unlike when I first joined, back in 2011, where I'd be scouring the various websites for the latest news and re-watching the weekly episodes, I'm just not pushed to do so anymore. I never got around to finishing Season 3, or watching that movie thing, and I've pretty much ignored the whole thing.
Don't get me wrong, I don't HATE the show, nor do I HATE the fandom, I still really enjoy it, and I really do hope I'll watch the last of S3.
It's just I've certainly
Why you no sequel?Hello, everyone!Why you no sequel?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm making this journal to clear some stuff as well as give you some updates.
First off, I'm very happy on the reception of the finale. I have given it a week to simmer and most of the feedback is positive. I was worried uploading this because the beginning and the ending of a story are what make and leave the biggest impression. The main reoccurring complaint I see is that the ending was dragged out. Really this was intentional and directive intention. More often than not I see complaints of rushed ending and no closure so I tried to make sure I closed everything with a nice little bow. For example, look at Return Of The King, there is still almost 45 minutes left in the movie after the Ring is destroyed and it's revered as one of the best trilogies of all time- not comparing my work to it of course, but I was influenced by it. Long story short, I rather have some people complain it was too long rather than it was rushed. You could always just close it as soon as tria

The Bravo Network, Brony Doc and Purple TinkerThe Bravo Network, Brony Doc and Purple Tinker2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm guessing most folks have or will be hearing about the Bravo Network's The People's Couch segment that took aim at the Brony Documentary. Lord knows our fandom- ANY fandom is ripe for all manner of comedy, critique and parody. Pony fans are at the same time remarkably creative, kind and fun individuals as well as sometimes awkward, tempestuous, and prone awesome and terrible levels of drama- Just like fans of everything else under the sun (and on Tumblr)
I'm not going to link to the video here because, frankly it's gross and I don't want to touch it with a 10 foot network cable. But its out there, you can find it on YouTube easily. The format seems to be a group vapid "Average Joes" sitting in front of a television and offering running commentary on whatever they're watching. In other words, it's what millions of 10 year-olds already do on YouTube, except with less professionalism and humor.

Alicorn and pegasi OC's.. (MLP)I realize there are too many alicorn and Pegasus OC's. About 99% of my friends' pony personas are pegasi, actually. And they don't even seem Pegasus-ish in my eyes. No offense.Alicorn and pegasi OC's.. (MLP)8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I believe it's because flying is the best ability in their opinion, but it bugs me a lot because, what is the purpose of having wings besides just flying for fun? And Alicorns, because they want to be a princess? Or because they just want to fly and have magic? What if in reality (I mean as if you were in the show) your family was just naturally a unicorn family, and you had no choice but to just be a unicorn? And how would your horn be in good use for the things you love to do? Be realistic, for pete's sake. You don't just make yourself a Pegasus OC just because you just think pegasi are cool, because they have wings. Don't make everything in the fictional world so freaking simple. It makes it boring and less creative in my opinion. Make your OC's pony race suit their destiny. Like in the show, a

Here we are, another year. I know, I know, I haven't written a journal in AGES, but I just never feel like I have much of worth to say or sharehere. WELL. Today is different! Recently, I collaborated with :iconMandopony: and our good friend Emily!
Andy wrote the song, and sang it with Emily, and I drew some silly pictures to go along with it. If you're a fan of Animal Crossing, then it should be right up your alley! If you're not a fan, don't worry, the song stands on it's own. It's very catchy and adorable and all that good stuff.
Hope everyone is doing great out there in art-land!
I'll try to journal more this year.

#10 Carl Fredricksen from UP
Now, this was an excellent film, but I feel it's driving point is it's main characters. Carl is a grumpy old man who in his youth was engaged in a happy marriage with his childhood friend Elly. After Elly passes away, Carl sets out to fufill both her and his wishes and go to Paradise Falls while making his house fly with balloons. Carl is an excellent character as he is both a jerk and a kind hearted man at the same time. Its so easy to just make him a grouche and thats it, but they decided to make sympathatic in his cause. He wishes to fufill his dead wife's wishes. He has cynical sense of the world but also a sympathetic size. His devotion to achieving his goal depsite his age really is the driving point of the character. Despite
