"My art isn't worth it"
"People won't pay what I want"
"Insert a million excuses here"
This is you! Or rather I should start off by saying this is all of us because I don't believe in playing the victim, we are equals here. We have all said it at some point in regards to sales. I personally have said it plenty of times. You, the reader are probably no exception.
Pricing is difficult, I offer my service and advice to who I can but at the end of the day I can't reach everyone to give you this talk. So I am writing this general journal about why your art ACTUALLY does not sell. I am going to try to be possitive but this journal may be harder to digest then most of the other informational journals simply because of the nature of the reason under pricing occurs. Which is because the seller has no self confidence, no experience, and is making business about their worth as

The Lion King - 20 Years And Still Roarin'Holy butt on a bagel....for the first time in my life....I actually feel old right now.The Lion King - 20 Years And Still Roarin'11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I think most of you already know this, but for those who don't, I'll refresh your memory...
The Lion King is my favorite movie of all time.
I know that sounds weird coming from me, considering all the crazy shit I draw. While I go on and on about the films of Ralph Bakshi and any animated shlock aimed towards adults, Disney was my first exposure to animation and inspired me to do what I do today. And it's so shocking to find out that the film that blows my mind every time I see it is turning 20 years old tomorrow, on Father's Day of all days (which is sort of a fitting day, given the father/son relationship shown in the film).
Sadly, I didn't have time to draw a tribute picture, due to my busy schedule. So I'll just talk about how much the movie means to me. Not from a snobby animation critic's point of view, just from a nostalgic point of view and how much it shaped me over the yea

OH and it's slightly inspired by this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kgsK1CNPWI&feature=related
"Are you better now?" Laura asked her best friend. A pair of brown eyes stared down sternly into a puddle of clear blue ones.
"No problem," she answered, muffling through the scarf Laura had given her so many years ago. She dropped her blue eyes from the questioning brown stare, and touched the scarf uncomfortably. She d
Texas Abortion Bill FilibusterIn case you live outside the USA and haven't heard of this yet, Texas was preparing to vote on a radical bill that would effectively outlaw abortions within their boarders. Senator Wendy Davis came in early in the morning with the expressed intent of filibustering: The goal being to delay the critical vote.Texas Abortion Bill Filibuster2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wendy Davis talked for 11 hours straight. No food. No drinks. No bathroom breaks. She couldn't even pause for a moment to take a sip of water or else she'd give up the floor and the vote could get underway. 11 hours straight she talked and just before the midnight cutoff she was interrupted, and the vote began... only to become absolute pandemonium as the crowd watching protested the interruption.
The GOP insists that the vote carried and passed, while the Democrats insist that they were still taking votes after the midnight cutoff thanks to the chaos that ensued. This is going to be one of those instances where the GOP are gonna try to lie and shove their way through our diplomatic

I've been thinking of starting my own animation business, but I'm divided on the name: I'm between "Tranimation Entertainment Studios," "Tranimation Entertainment," or simply "Tranimation Studios." Which do you prefer? (Also, I made a new poll. Please vote and comment. I'd love you read any thoughts and opinions.)
I want to start off with an animated web series for JELLYBEAN AND PINTO, using hand-drawn art, Photostop, Flash, and Wacom tablet in a similar 2D-plus-digital media animation to MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC.

Basil's height: a more accurate answer!Looking back at old journal dates, the last time I talked about Basil's height was on April 4, 2011. That means for two years I've been wondering what is the exact height of the famous mouse detective and never getting a definite answer...until now! I recently had a one-on-one talk with a Disney animator, and what he told me was extremely helpful!Basil's height: a more accurate answer!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, the circles on animation height charts represent 'head units.' The height chart of Basil and Dawson uses heads to determine their height. Basil was given 4½ heads, Dawson was given 3. Talking to the animator, I asked him if the heads could also stand for inches. He believes this is true because, being mice, they would be measured that way, whereas humans would be measured by feet.
He also told me that, in animation, the characters have to be made larger than usual size, and this definitely includes mice. Animating a mouse at normal size would be too small. The animators have to increase the body mass to a bigger size so t

Who knew a story like this turned out to be a hoot when it was all for a test run on how i would interact with the world of the Great Mouse Detective. Not to mention it would spawn inspired spin-offs!
I couldn't be more proud of this story because it was the first completed fanfic that had many of my friends pushing me to finish. It brought me many friends and fans, so I'm happy for this story to have come a long way.
Thank you all for keeping the story alive today. I'll forever love the Great Mouse Detective and I'll forever love the story I left on the internet.
So, as a small tribute, if you read my story, tell us what you thought about it. What is it about the story that loved the most? Hell, even I'm curious. Leave a comment about it, if you choose!
Happy Anniversary, Through My Eyes! Thank you...for everything.
The Ultimate Disney Questionaire(Shamelessly stolen from YouTube)The Ultimate Disney Questionaire2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. What is your favorite Disney movie?: The Great Mouse Detective. I have been in love with Disney mice (and rats) since Mickey's old cartoons.
2. Who is your favorite Disney heroine?: Mulan. I look up to her. She's badass, but she has her faults. And her movie kicked so much ass.
3. Who is your favorite Disney hero?: Robin Hood. He's just so awesome it hurts. And Basil is a close second, but all the fanfiction turns me off of him. Sadly, few authors do my favorite mouse (other than The Mouse of course) justice. He's far too OOC in most fanfics.
4. Who is your favorite Disney sidekick?: A tie between Dawson and Baloo. Dawson is patient, loyal, and lovable. Baloo was always one of my favorite characters due to Phil Harris's legendary voice acting, and he's just too cute. :3
5. Who is your favorite Disney villain?: Professor Padraic Ratigan. This guy...I can't help my insane love for him. Charming, witty, and nasty to boot, he's been my favorite baddie s

Animation Job FAQ
Q: How can I get a job in animation?
The absolute best thing you can do to get into animation as a career is to go to art school. Not only will you learn how to draw and how to SEE, you will meet people, students and teachers alike, who will give you new perspectives and will likely be the sources of your future jobs. (My first job came from one of my teachers.)
There are several schools that have fantastic animation programs that cover all facets of the atr form. Schools like the one I attended, CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF THE ARTS, will teach you animation (2D and 3D,) character design, storyboarding, bac

My Deviant Art StoryWow okay, so 7 years ago I was a year on Deviant Art and I don't even feel like posting my artwork because the majority of it was really bad MS Paint drawings. I don't have a whole lot to say right now mainly because I'm tired, watching a movie with a friend of mine but people were doing it and I felt like recounting my story to an extent. I was a little punk for a while, kinda wanting to be director for the longest time, now I'm going to graduate school wanting to be a writer. 7 years ago I was...wow....I was still in high school which is kinda crazy to think about, kinda really crazy to think about because it feels like time has flown by while on Deviant Art and where did all the time go?

Anyway, I went as Death the Kid again, becuz I had no money and time to make something else. It was fun to meet others from Anime USA, since I was the only Kid walking around with a Rapunzel backpack. LOL
So, I was walking in the Artist's Alley, and I passed Rikki's booth. The pictures of GIR on his table caught my attention and I moved on. But then, I did a double-take, literally, and I stared right back at him, and he stared back at me, letting out a small wave. My reaction: totally unexpecting for him to come. Apparently, he decided to come to Katsucon at the last minute as well. Who knew, right? I shook his hand, took a picture to prove my dad I wasn't joking, LOL, and my friend requested for him to do the DOOM song.
Rikki: It would take 6 months to sing it. X3
