CT WIPs - TVB The UnfinishedAlmost forgot to start this journal! I want to release every unfinished TVB song I have to you guys so I'm obviously gonna need a new pic of the bandCT WIPs - TVB The Unfinished1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Concept: So the songs aren't all polished up or done, yet I want to release them for download anyway. Draw band members Rion, Abbey and Gibson in a way that reflects that.
Canvas size: 1000x1500 at 100dpi.
Brush used for sketching: Pencil sketch (16x16) scaled at .40, brush dynamics: Pressure - Opacity and Size.
Their hair is unkempt and they're not fully dressed; you can see their underwear.
Even though Gibson is considered the leader of the band, as the shortest, Abbey is in the middle for composition's sake.
Facial expressions should sum up each member. Uncertainty, neutral, and outgoing.
Neutral stance for them all because I love those indie album covers with th

Weirdness....Alright, awhile back I did a review on an absolutely terrible book entitled "1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die," a book that was riddled with errors. Table of contents directions lead to wrong pages. Some titles in the table of contents used one regional name, while the actual entry used a different regional name (Freak Out/Stretch Panic). There were also typos and spelling errors. Sometimes games like H.E.R.O. and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. would be at the top of their letter section, and sometimes they would be where they would if they didn't have any periods. Not to mention that they didn't know how to alphabetize at all. This book is probably the only place in the world where Super Mario Bros. comes in between Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario Bros. 3. And that's in the table of contents.Weirdness....7 months ago in Personal More Like This

Vimeo-NoApparently my vimeo account got taken down or something.... with no warning. I won't say for no reason because copyright bullshit and shit. I'm not really bummed at all. I've gotten all of my videos saved in backup and I'm sure that many of you guys do too. But, let's talk about importance. First of all, any planned reviews of FOX shows (Regarding Margie, Herpe the Love Sore) are going on hiatus while I sort this out. But in the meantime I'm done relying on other websites for this shit.

Growing Around Voice ActingOkay, we are now at the stage where we need voice actors to move on even further. We only need five of them: one for Robert, Linda, Timmy, Sally, and Kathy. However, you need more than just a fitting voice for each of them, you need to prove that you can voice a wide range of emotions, particularly: happy, sad, angry/annoyed, embarrassed, and surprised. So, what lines do I want you to read?Growing Around Voice Acting10 months ago in Personal More Like This

I've missed you all and apologize for the next chapter's delay, but this trip was much needed. I couldn't focus anymore. I have book six completed, yet couldn't bring myself to post a chapter. I needed a reboot in life.
I spent the day hiking in the mountains, enjoying the views and doing my best to reflect. As hard as I tried to think on my life, I couldn't. In fact, I found myself very emotional. Sitting there alone in the woods brought tears to my eyes. This was the first lesson I'd like to share.
Guys, you are no less of a man for crying. Regardless of what society deems as acceptable, DON'T BUY INTO IT. You are allowed to breakdown and cry. You are allowed to FEEL. Empathy is not a weakness, it means you are human. You are not alone. Cry. Free yourself of bottled up pain.
Girls, a man has every right to cry. It does not make him wimpy, wussy, or pathetic. It shows that he admits his emotion. I know most of you under

Growing Around voice acting resultsSo today Kyle and I have gone through pretty much all of the auditions and chose the ones we found most suited to our cartoon. In the next few days I will by writing the teleplay and you should send me in your finished lines. Now here is what you've all been waiting for, who gets in. These are all based on the username of where they put their audition. Here we go:Growing Around voice acting results9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Sally will be played by You'reMyGlowstone (also known as Lumi)
Timmy will be played by Jadyn W.
Robert will be played by VoodooRaisins
Kathy will be played by Niku-Chan
And Linda will be played by... I'm not sure. You see, we didn't find any voice actors who really suited Linda, so we've decided to extend auditions for her and only her until August 30th. If you still want to be a voice actor you will have to audition for Linda. Give it your all and I'll see you soon. Good luck once more,.
Derek Landy Book SigningSo.Derek Landy Book Signing3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I recently attended a book signing by Derek Landy who is on tour at the moment promoting his new book Kingdom of the Wicked, the 7th book in the Skulduggery Pleasant series.
Due to the popularity with fellow fans of my drawings illustrating characters and scenes from his previous books, I thought it would be nice if I cleaned up a few old drawings, put them all on a page together and give it to Derek as a gift, a way of saying thanks for giving me material to practise character design on.
On the day, I asked him if I could give him a drawing, he said yes so I handed over the page. He looked at it, looked back at me and exclaimed, "It's you! You're the one who drew these!"
I could only stare for a moment in confusion and say, "Yeeeeesss... it's me...? If you recognise any of these drawings then yes, I'm the artist...?"
"Yeah, I recognise these! I've seen these before online!"
"OH, WOW!!" (My brain was yelling something stronger) "I had no idea that you've seen my work!"

'GENECONOMICS' : a Motion Book script exampleUPDATE: The art is starting to come in for this book:'GENECONOMICS' : a Motion Book script example2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As it gets completed we will be posting the process of how this script becomes a Motion Book, and goes to print! So if you're interesting in the process stay tuned!
I've been asked a couple of questions about designing comics with the 'motion book' mentality in mind. Because motion books are dynamic and not static, you can create stories in a format that incorporates a motion book foundation. Where traditional comics deal with page layout, motion books deal with how that layout flows and evolves over time (Treatment: Tokyo is a great example of this).
I have an animation background, so the writing I've done in the past reflects this. Below is a script for a property I'm developing that I wrote as a motion book- so the format is taking into account how it would be interpreted at the art stage and motion book creation stage (and for that reason the format sort of bridges the 'animation/cinema'

So, I've began uploading my FOX reviews, starting with that Allen Gregory review, and now two Family Guy reviews (Fresh Heir, and Seahorse Seashell Party). But isn't it like three strikes and you're out? Yeah. And the reason that I uploaded two Family Guy reviews is that for some bizarre reason my Fresh Heir review slipped past the computer. But the other two videos are under dispute. I don't know what's gonna happen to them. I can only tell you what I know.Fun with Copyright8 months ago in Personal More Like This
The process goes like this. If your video gets matched with copyright ID, the company that did it has an opportunity to track it, gain ad revenue from it (which Hasbro does), or block it; either in one region (UMG, and it's usually Germany for some reason because I don't know), or worldwide (FOX). From there you can dispute it. They say that knowingly submitting false disputes

What's the Difference Between....Allen Gregory and Brickleberry?What's the Difference Between....7 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is a genuine question because I genuinely don't know. It's no secret that I tend to not like adult cartoons. The formula seems to be say something purposefully offensive to piss people off and mix it with as much raunch and sex and violence as possible and boom you've got a hit on your hand. Yet, the difference between Allen Gregory and Brickleberry is that one gets cancelled six episodes in and the other goes on for three or more seasons. Yet, they're both the same kind of shock for shocks sake. If one is popular, logically the other should be.
There are obviously good cartoons aimed at adults like Futurama, but sometimes it's extremely hard when I'm reviewing a show like Adult Party Cartoon or Mr. Pickles (and no, it's not a goddamn Rugrats episode) to not feel like I'm critiquing a hentai for having porn when a deer eats a placenta or a dog tears off something's head. When reviewing Breadwinners I know that a children's carto
Growing Around Writing AuditionsPerhaps I didn't let people play to their strengths... or perhaps I had released the original audition template too soon. So, let's try this.Growing Around Writing Auditions9 months ago in Personal More Like This
As you've noticed, each of the four main characters now have their own episode (Linda's is the pilot). Besides the pilot, they're all in their first draft so minor details will change, but the most important things are there - the characters, their traits, and the world that surrounds them. This is what will be considered "canon." Alright, let's get down to business with things. But I'm going to have to be serious here. I can't believe I'm saying this, but kids are still kid. They age normally. Adults are still adults, and the adults are the biological parents of the kids. The kids are just in charge.
Challenge: You are to write any type of plot you wish (that can fit in a children's show). The only thing that I require is that it at least features all four main characters: Timmy, Sally, Linda, and Robert. They all need to speak at le

What Hurts About Shorty McShorts' ShortsSo, I've got some mixed reactions to what I'm going to be reviewing Monday (the script is already done, if you're wondering. There's no turning around on this). Most people don't seem to remember it and for good reason. A lot of them star unlikeable character (Dodger Dare; My Mom Married a Yeti; The Phabulizers); a just plain stupid (Bozzelbag's Zip; Boys on Da Run; Mascot Prep; My Mom Married a Yet... again); or are plain cliche. However, the cliche ones are really what hurts the most. Take Too Many Robots for a good example:What Hurts About Shorty McShorts' Shorts11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Too Many Robots is about a teenage Bubbles from the Powerpuff Girls who stole Applebloom's voice who moved in from the country to her mad scientist uncle... or something. That sounds like a great idea, right? A little girl with little technological experience coming to live in a house ruled essentially by robots. That has a ton of potential, but what do they do? They have her completely resist the robots and tell a cliched st

A company that you've never heard of and doesn't own the actual content has a third party claim on your video. The company that was claiming Spit Collector was one of the companies like AdRev for the 3rd Party. I believe it was something like M4G or something? Oh yeah, that's the first problem: you cannot view who in the past had claimed your videos. There is no tab or file to see who had previously claimed your videos, which means that people can indiscriminately remove videos with no consequences if someone didn't remember who removed their video. Which is kind of hard to do when they're made up of random characters that is guarant

I want this one to be very, very difficult to get accepted. The basic rule is that you need to write a script in the same format as the pilot and it must be between 1800-2100 words. I am going to give you five "episodes" to choose from. Pick one of them. Each one of them is given a possible glaring pitfall that you must avoid. I'm also assuming that you know the basic concept of the show. If you need more details about the characters, don't be afraid to ask any questions about them. In fact, here's everything I know about each o
