So You Want to Work in Animation/Vfx?Watch this: http://youtu.be/9lcB9u-9mVESo You Want to Work in Animation/Vfx?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The documentary is about vfx more so than feature animation, but the reality is if you want to work in the film side of this indutry you will be doing vfx at some point since there are only a handful of studios which produce feature animation. So thinking "I'll be safe by just working in animation" is unrealistic. Everyone who is considering entering this industry needs to be aware of the things that are going on. I love my job and can't see myself doing anything else, but it's very important to realize that it's definitely not all sunshine and rainbows. The stress and hardship of having to move (often across states, provinces, and/or countries) is real. On one hand, its an adventure to get to travel so much. But on the other, it's very expensive and is quite counter productive to having a life of your own outside of work as far as having a house, finding a partner, etc goes. Hopefully some kind of change for the better will happen in the not too

would YOU like to make and sell FUMI DESIGNS?I'm no longer actively looking for new official designers.would YOU like to make and sell FUMI DESIGNS?1 month ago in Personal More Like This
So I have been asked this before (although I can't remember who exactly asked /sweats) BUT I was wondering
Would you like to design fumis and sell them?
You may be thinking, "But Lex what is the catch? What do I get out of this?"
What I would like in return is 1/4 of the profits!
I'm mostly entertaining this because lately I've fallen in love with the idea of seeing the designs other people might make if they could freely make fumi designs to sell, and seeing the fumis in different artistic flavors!
DISCLAIMER: I WILL NOT be letting EVERYONE do this! I will be allowing select individuals to do this. The people I select will most likely be mutuals, people who I'm somewhat comfortable with and who I want to see fumi designs from. Regardless, feel free to go over the information/rules and send me an inquiry if you are interested, there's no harm

"I still hear the screams, I still smell the blood. I can still taste the dust on my lips. Every time I close my eyes, my heart leaps into my throat when I see that missing wall, the dust billowing out. I still feel my throat going raw as I scream for the two that we knew were underneath the rubble. I still feel his swollen, bloody hand in mine as he fights to live...."
Sometimes I hurt the ones that I love the most, even though they're the ones that I need the most...because there's so much pain and anger and hurt going on inside of my head and my heart that I just don't know what to do with it. I feel like there's no way to say that I'm sorry enough.

The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.Concept art is getting bigger and bigger. More people know what it is nowadays, it gets shown in the media more often and more books get released. This automatically results into more people wanting to become concept artists. So many artschools are now creating special courses all towards game art or concept art. (Game art can also include UI design, 3D modeling etc.).The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yet it is a fairly new thing to most people and the idea of "becoming a concept artist" has grown rapidly over such a short time that a lot of people who are new to it seem to get a lot of misguide info. I am going to try to list this misguided info and direct you to the correct info.
(Again I would always advise you to do your own research and form your own knowledge and not just simply agree with what you read online, not from anyone, not from me. Even though i'm right .. ofcourse. *wink *wink )

The back story of a Prime."You see that mech, the one who looks like he has a storm cloud over his helm? You do? Excellent. I wish to share his background with you about him."The back story of a Prime.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
He was a young mech, he didn't know it, but long before the Autobots ever thought he was alive, his mother had no choice but to abandon him to take his sister to safety, heh, your wondering; "What kind of mother does that? Leaves a youngling behind, disgraceful!" Well, truth be told, the mother thought he was dead. He didn't cry, he didn't move...
Many eons later, no earlier was he in his young childhood days. He was in a group called 'The Resistance'. A mix of Neutrals and Autobots, but this band of merry badaft Cybertronians worked outside the law. They trained sparklings at young ages how to kill, where the weak points in a body would be. "Always aim for the spark..."
That mech met someone, a young femme who was normally teased for her being such a small size, she reached no higher than his hip but they were the same age. Her name was
Sad NewsI've got a small bit of sad news, guys.Sad News2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This morning, my dad and I had to take my brother's cat to the vet's to be put down.
She had arthritis and the medicine we gave her was not working, and we didn't want her to continue to be in pain.
I normally don't cry or stress about this sort of stuff because it happens all the time at my grandparents' farm, but there were a few factors that did make me cry:
-We had her and her brother for probably a little over ten years, so they've been in my life for the majority of them (Got them when I was in kindergarten.)
-She was my brother's cat, and he didn't get to see her before we took her to put her down.
-As my dad and I were leaving the vet's office, I could hear our cat meowing from the back of the vet's office, like she was calling to us.
So, we brought her bed back and now we just have my cat, Simba. Even he seems a little subdued, like he knows his sister is gone. And it wouldn't surprise me; a few years ago, Simba was sick and was gone for

Now, I'll just keep short on the idea that not only did a lot of people ignore my previous requests to not put comparisons (some of which I'm fairly certain responded to the journals) in favor of an even greater peeve of mine.
Is the height of knowledge for everyone under the age of 30 really restricted to things they've seen on television?
Seriously. I have someone in something that is supposed to resemble fatigues and the first thing like.... 75% of the people who don't read my journals thought was 'Naruto.' Never you mind that fatigues have been used by soldiers and outdoorsmen and boyscouts alike long before Naruto even existed, this is the first place their minds go to is ninjas.
It was like the time when someone responded to a fur-lined coat I drew on one of my characters thinking it was inspired by the Avatar Water Tribe clothing. I mean, really? Have you never heard of eskimos? Or siberians? No, no, I'm being too generous there, we'll narrow it to f

Lilly and Halfdude's Oil Change VideoHey y'allLilly and Halfdude's Oil Change Video1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sorry for the inactivity lately, I've had drawings in mind to do.. but with these commissions pending I kinda have to focus totally on them for now. I'm closing commissions for a bit so after I get the next 5 or so done I can have some time to draw my own stuff for a bit. I think I'll reopen them again later too.
Anyway, I wanted to let you guys know that I changed Lilly's oil and filter a couple weeks ago.. she desperately needed it.. even more then I thought till I actually started doing it! *is horrible owner* But anyway, she and I decided it'd be a nice opportunity to make my first how-to video and to help YOU guys know how to change your own oil on your cars. So any of you who've started feeling more for your cars because of my art (like some of you have said) you might like to know how to show your love and caring for it and do the oil change yourself. I'm sure it beats having it done by some tired fed up technician at Jiffy Lube.

You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.
Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely.
But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons an

Designation; Striker speaking. This is just a log of my thought's... I need to let them down somewhere.
I guess this all started when... I found out my mother wasn't... really my mother. Just a fake shadow. In those days I felt so alive, so to say. So open and able to live, I felt like a normal teenager. A young Autobot on her way to the front lines, how I wish I had accomplished that. I learnt I was adopted at birth, my mother died risking her life for mine - Give one take one, I guess. I had to find out who my real mother was; Blasterstorm her name was, proud and young as she fell for my real father who I no longer see; Smokescreen. I looked exactly like her to him, but not the exact same. Sometimes I wonder if he felt differently of me because of that.
Well, my adoptive mother who I don't even want their name to slip past my lips ever again took me in, loved me, cared for me, I felt whole. Shortly after I met a young mech who
