TO THE ASPIRING ANIMATORS/CREATORS OUT THERE..."The Japan Image Council has opened its call for applications for the Animation Artist In Residence Tokyo 2015. If you’ve had a film that has screened in an international festival or exhibition, I strongly encourage you to apply. As a previous resident of the program, I frequently find myself thinking about my wonderful experience in the residency. With each passing year, the amount of applicants for the residency has grown significantly, so I can only assume the competition will be even tougher this year. Even so, this opportunity is too great to pass up, especially since the application is free.TO THE ASPIRING ANIMATORS/CREATORS OUT THERE...7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Alongside the prospect of time and funding to work on your own project, the residency is built for those who want to experience and discover the works of Japanese animation artists, both old and new. Meeting independent directors, interacting with student filmmakers, and visiting animation studios were frequent occurrences throughout the residency. The amount of cross-pollination that o
Ahri Cosplay - Tails TutorialHi again loves!Ahri Cosplay - Tails Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So sorry it's taken me so long to post on here for the next section on the Ahri cosplay. I have already done a tutorial on her sleeves, skirt and her top. I started her tails first and finished them last because well, they were rather frustrating, and I am in the process of reworking them. Once I completely finish my rework on her tails, I will post another how to!
As always, the pictures will be numbered ;3
What you will need:
*At the very minimum you will need 2 yards of white fake fur. I am lucky enough to have an enormous fabric place called Fabric Depot which has it's own section for fake furs! I got one that was long, straight, soft and beautiful! Fake fur can be pretty spendy, I got mine for 29.99 a yard (1)
*Firm Foam (I cut mine appropriately) (2)
*Stuffed animal stuffing
*Industrial Strength Velcro
*Some fabric or a small belt.
*Some hot glue and a hot glue gun
*Some (preferably) white velcro
First you will decide how large you want your t

Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?Hello everyone!Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Before you read, please keep in mind that my intentions are not to blame, insult, criticize, or say anything harmful about anyone! The intentions of this feature if anything, is to motivate us all in improving the group system and dA as a whole! ALSO this is focused more largely on photography, digital art, and a few other mediums, but I don't claim to speak for the cases of other mediums and types of groups that I am not familiar with.
EDIT: To make things clear, I don't believe dA or Groups will ever be "dead" in the sense of them not existing anymore, or members in both factions not existing either, I'm using "Death" more metaphorically perhaps, in saying that the way the group system is intended to be working, has been failing, and needs improving in order to not fail its purpose, and that dA needs to do something to strengthen the community sense and interactions between members both in groups and in the dA com

Cry Fan Art ProjectHello.Cry Fan Art Project2 years ago in Personal More Like This
12341smiley is doing a project to help cheer Cry up and asked our group to announce this, so here it is.
To "show appreciation and love for him and everything he has done for our community, I had an idea. I am trying to get people to submit as many fan arts as possible so that I may make a huge collaboration of the arts for Cry in a video. People can submit art here http://marstar1234.tumblr.com/ at my Tumblr, in the submission box labeled "Cry Fan Art Project"." "The more fan arts that this project gets, the better. It would be a big help to the project and will hopefully help to repay Cry for everything he's done for us and help cheer him up and show him our support."
Deadline: New Year
Limits: None, send as much as you want!
Don't have Tumblr? Well mazoneko is volunteering to help with this issue. Send your artwork to mazoneko and he will do the rest and credit your dA name.

Hetalia Reader Insert ContestAlright, this is a contest for those of you who write reader inserts for Hetalia. Now, like any other contest, i have to go over the details and the rules.Hetalia Reader Insert Contest2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The theme is 'Dirty and Gritty'.
And no, not having a shower in week is not what it means. I'm looking for a down-to-earth story, one that shows the gritty underbelly of life, the hard part. Like of the men and women without a home, the girls dancing in the redlight districts and brothels, the ones working multiple jobs to support their families, murderers and crime, racial and social injustice, people succumbing to greed and lust, gold diggers, the greasy haired loan sharks. I want that harsh, dirty, gritty part of the world.
Now, the rules are:
1. Oneshots only, please. Please no little drabbles, and no multi chaptered fics.
2. Post the link in the comments please, and i will add them to the Contest folder. I can't put your story in the contest if i don't have a link to it.
3. Please limit how many stories you enter. It's alright

Joan of Arc
Joan of Arc (1412—1431) is the ultimate iconic rebellious teenager. In nineteen years she lived a fuller and more exciting life, effecting the future histories of the two most powerful nations on Earth, than most can even dream of, and then died a martyr’s death for her cause and beliefs, for which she was declared a saint 500 years later. Her story has been told in many novels, movies and comic books. She was the girl who God gave a mission to drive the occupying English out of northern France. So fervid was her demand for action that she was made an advisor to the French high command and led them to victory after victory in the cause of F

Disney vs Lucas ArtsIf ever you bring up Disney in a conversation, people immediately recite tired old issues with the company that haven't been true for a long time. For example, complaining about the excess of half-assed sequels. That was part of Michael Eisner's regime. When he left the studio the quality Disney was producing suddenly skyrocketed considerably. Likewise the excessive merchandising and branding of Disney related products has also ceased to be as all-consuming now that Eisner is gone. In fact, a lot of the main issues people had with Disney during the 90's and early 2000's was a result of Eisner.Disney vs Lucas Arts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since Eisner left, the Disney studio has done a REMARKABLE job in clearing their name of many of the atrocities they had committed during his regime. They promptly turned the animation department around and have even begun doing 2-D animated films again after Eisner said "no." Granted, at the moment 2-D is still in hiatus, but the situation isn't as dire as it use to be and there's still promise

in the bone
of holy fire, the night
ate away at it all,
that acid tide -
it ate away at
the bud in the mud
and the blood,
it burned their bodies
but left their ghosts
so they could be
and then a wild
man, a monster
pressed his thumb into
the air, he drew
a cross upon his face
i am drowning
i am drowning in light
i am drowning
in the white
and the gold
as he sits
at the end of my bed
and he shouts -
i don't know
and i scream, god, please just
let me sleep!
let me sleep
in the cold barren ground
of the earth,
let it pull me right in
through its mangle -
and i feel a sting
in the crook of my arm
when they come
