Color composition!A Couple of months past, the last book of James Gurney came to my hands. It was about color and light and it has the greatest review about the subject I've ever found on a book for now.Color composition!4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Because of that great discovery, I've decided to compliment it with my own experience and that is why I started doint light tutorials:

But I think that I did something wrong, I tryed to explain color composition just by working in 1 picture, and so that you understand that it is necesary that you see more than one.
That is why I decided to make this picture selection and show you some pictures that I think represent the color composition very well. Here they are ordered by issues:

So here's what we know:
- Action will take place in Japan, Hawaii, Las Vegas (that's the Mini Liberty, not the NYC original), San Francisco...and SOMEWHERE in the Pacific Northwest?
- Godzilla has been around since 1954...and the US military spent several decades just trying to KILL HIM.
- The MUTO creatures are in the trailer, as the flying one can be seen along with its long hook-like arm.
- There's SOME sort of egg-sack-thing on one of the nukes...could they be MUTO eggs?
- Cranston's character was involved in a nuclear accident in Japan 15 years prior to the film, and smells a conspiracy.
- Watanabe's character discovers some sort of massive fossil underground...
And there you have it

Thusfar, all that's confirmed are dual language tracks, but special features and/or whether or not any of the films will have their respective American-produced dubs (superior in quality to the "international" dubs) have yet to be mentioned. Given that it's a relatively small set from a new company under the Section 23 label, we can at least hope for more than the drag-and-drop releases from Sony a few years back.

As a huge fan of the original Japanese Godzilla movies, I was not dissapointed, thoroughly enjoyed it and my only complaint was having to watch it in 3D...
Also, Godzilla is pretty fat but i don't mind that so much.
Never been a fan of watching movies in 3D anyway - it costs more, glasses sit on my eyelids, eyes hurt after a while and movie theatres tend to be warm so i sweat a bit where the glasses contact my eyelids and have to wipe occasionally, and I dont like the movies to tell my eyes what to focus on, I actually like looking for little details/cameos/easter eggs. Plus I so rarely go to the cinema that my last pair of 3D glasses gathered the thickest layer of dust it possibly could and I had to buy another pair.

Instead, what we got could best be described as a sequel to THE TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA (1975).
Trust me, I wouldn't begin a review with a hyperbolic, attention-grabbing statement like that without explaining it. For the moment, let us turn back the clock and toss out a quick recap of the film's plot. Obviously, this review will contain a metric crapload of SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS, but you'll complain anyway, so let's get on with this.
After a mysterious event in 1954 regarding the Castle Bravo nuclear test and an unknown giant organism, the story jumps to 1999, where two scientists, Dr. Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and Dr. Graham (Sally Hawkins) are investigating a massive underground tomb in the

The moment you've think you've heard it all, another one falls from the proverbial heavens and onto our collective laps.
SciFi Japan recently posted an article that details yet ANOTHER failed attempt to do an American-made Godzilla movie, entitled "Godzilla Reborn".
And even more interesting, it would have been a direct sequel to "Godzilla 2000", written by the same man behind that film's American adaptation, Michael Schlesinger.

50 Years of Guarding the Universe
An American Doujinshi by Matt Frank and Josh Bugosh
In the year 1965, from the depths of an arctic glacier, awoken by an accidental atomic explosion, came crawling the Friend of all Children, the Guardian of the Universe, the Terrible Terrapin of Tokyo, GAMERA. Sweeping the Japanese box office, and quickly becoming an pop culture icon in his own right, Gamera captured the hearts of kaiju fans the world over, both young and old. After 12 feature films, Gamera’s 50th anniversary is upon us in the year 2015…and any rumors of a celebratory film were quickly silenced. As the months march on, it seems less and less likely that the mighty reptile will recieve his due, even as the kaiju genre enjoys a resurgeance in popularity.
Ergo, kaiju artist Matt Frank, best known for his work on IDW Publishing’s various Godzilla comic series, has begun work on a standalone story, The Last Hope. Intended to be produced as a one-shot, self-p

Anyway, congratulations to the VT crew. Now for a little story. First video I ever watched from them was the Doctor Who TARDIS mod (the one separate from A Skyrim Tale) when I happened to be watching a bunch of Doctor Who stuff that day. If I hadn't clicked on that one video, I probably never would have heard of them again, if at all, for a long time. I subscribed one year ago on July 17th, the day the Vacation Roleplay Map in Gmod came out.

Firstly, I went and saw me some PACIFIC RIM with the G-Fest crew. MAN what an amazing time at the theater - it was like watching a wrestling match. The theater rocked with elated cheers as steel fist smashed against reptilian flesh and bone.
As to the plot...I reached a strange revelation while at my table during the convention proper. If PACIFIC RIM, flaws and all, were an animated feature...would anyone have ANY complains about it? Personally I prefer the live-action-cartoon approach - it makes the universe feel all the more rich as a sumptuous visual feast.
That being said, the film isn't performing the way it should. It may pull a HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and stick around for a time, earning its money over a period of time, but it's not looking great at the moment. Go see it! And a second and third time! There's a lot riding on PacRim's success so go support it!

But there is one thing that I know, and many more of us know, is that even though A Skyrim Tale is coming to an end, it will be close to so many of the fellow adventurer's hearts, changing their look on the world of gaming and of VenturianTale. I, myself, will continue to contribute to the fantastic world of Skyrim Tale, with fanfiction and fanart. This is just so HARD to take, the end of my personal favorite VenturianTale series. It may even make a return, like A Minecraft Tale, or maybe even spawn a series of episodes of Elder Scrolls Online, but whatever the case may be, A Skyrim Tale will stay my best VenturianTale memory ever, and I will continue to enjoy the series' original episodes, and what is to come of the fans' loThis is the End1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Jon De Bont's GODZILLA - The Untold True StoryAs of today (May-31-2015) SciFi Japan has finally released the final part of their four part coverage of the cancelled Jon De Bont's Godzilla movie that was suppose to be released back in 1994. To many fans that grew up watching Godzilla movies from the 60s to the late 80s, these four part article is something that is very important within our lives as long time Godzilla fans. These four article marks the end of many fan debate among what happened during the production of the Jon De Bont Godzilla movie as well as shed new lights on what went wrong and what really went down behind closed door. While in most cases, these type of issues are meant to stay a secret from public's view, the cancelled Jon De Bont's Godzilla movie was something that I personally feel was needed to be reveal to the public (in most cases Godzilla fans) and I was happy that the guys from SciFi Japan was able to gather up and write these wonderful article for all of us.Jon De Bont's GODZILLA - The Untold True Story3 months ago in Personal More Like This

I mean, Spongebob, Family Guy, and G3 MLP will give me plenty to talk about for years to come, but I want to keep things varied and interesting. And remember that each show usually has at least one dud. I mean, Ed, Edd N Eddy was my second favorite Cartoon Cartoon, but even I'll admit that it had three duds (If It Smells Like an Ed; Your Ed Here; Sorry Wrong Ed). Also, I recently watched that top 10 most hated Disney cartoons in which Watchmojo proved themselves stupid by including Gravity Falls a show that I've heard nothing but good things about and insinuating that they didn't like it through their intro, and it reminded me of some shows that I really want to tackle, but I need good examples of them.
