1. You will have to reduce your story to one page. This is called the query letter, what you write when you try and land a legit agent or publisher. You basically say "Hey, this is what my story's about, how long it is, and why I chose you to look at it." It is, in my opinion, one of the most difficult things a writer will ever face. All your nuance, your subtle build-ups, your "yes, buts", and your "no, wait, there's more" all have to be condensed to three paragraphs or so. No query letter is really allowed to be longer than one page, because no one has tl;dr worse than a literary agents or his or her minions. Not only that, queries show off your writing style and what you value in terms of story. A good query gets somebody t

(...) Everyone has a moment when they think “I am a bad artist.” and they think that because they see a level of skill they have not achieved yet. If this is the case, every artist ever is a bad artist, because every artist ever has had some idea, some plan, some goal of a skill level or creation that they have not achieved yet. And that’s good. Learning and growth and moving forward are all good things, so instead of trying to be some fictionalized version of a good artist, let’s all be bad artists together.

Folks I cannot stress how exciting this new year is going to be.
I'm in the process of applying for an Internship at Archie Publications Inc. for the Summer of 2014. Fingers crossed that everything will go smoothly - all the paperwork from Immigration US/Homeland Security can be a real pain in the butt.
Anyways now that I'm done with the first semester at the Academy of Art (averaging B/B+ grades!); spent quality time with me best mates via :iconchemb0t: and :iconevanstanley: for Christmas and New Years; and wished my family and friends a Happy New Years it's time to make full use of my three weeks before school starts this Spring 2014.
So here's the plan.
Before I make my way to the offices of Archie Publications I'm preparing another portfolio piece to showcase.
The project is entitled PIRATE PLUNDER PANIC. The purpose is twofold - the first one has already been explained above but the second is to say a
EXTRA C. - OST Lyrics - Wreck-it, Wreck-it Ralph! ENGLISH…EXTRA C. - OST Lyrics - Wreck-it, Wreck-it Ralph!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok, following the line of sharing with you the lyrics from the original themes of the OST, here I let you the ones from my personal favourite: Wreck-it, Wreck-it Ralph by Buckner ‘n’ Garcia, who were previously famous for writing video game-themed songs in the 1980s, like Pac-Man Fever =3
I love this song a lot since it describes the Fix-it Felix Jr. Game mechanic and backstory so well… allowing you to appreciate the characters from both points of view ^^!
Wreck-It Ralph is a giant of a man
Nine feet tall with really big hands
Living in a stump on his very own land
Until his world went crazy.
He was minding his own business on the day they came,
They showed a piece of paper saying "eminent domain".
They built an apartment building saying progress was to blame,
But he got mad, and he turned bad
Brick by brick, he's gonna take his land back!
Wreck-It Wreck-It Ralph as fast as you can!
You know you can do it with your colossa

1. Work on something else. I know, I know. You've been working on that story of yours for twelve whole years, and it's your baby. Sure, it may have been inspired by that Dungeons and Dragons session you had when you were thirteen, but you're going to make your fortune with it! It's the next Harry Potter! When my pals and I have gone to writing conferences, we've made note of an interesting phenomenon: when someone has written a first novel in the fantasy genre, it is invariably a sword-and-sorcery novel or a portal fantasy. I will bet money on it: show me a first novel and I will show you a sword-and-sorcery or portal fantasy. There's nothing wrong with sword-and-sorcery as a genre, don't get me wrong. It's just that in writing

Well, rumors about a second movie were here and there right after a few months the 1st one premiered, and we all were talkin' about "plans" on making it... But instead of 10 months old announcements, this one actually is fresh, just from a few days ago...
Basically Wreck-it Ralph 2 is on the go; there's no proper info. exactly (there're mentions here and there about encounters of the alternative universe kind between Ralph and another version of himself from other game, etc, Tron included, etc, etc) on what's the plot going to be or whatever... but Rich Moore apparently wants to "pay his debt" and include Mario on this second installment.
I've been really exceptical with the sayings on the whole thing, but this one seems legit so far...
Honestly, I don't care how much we will have to wait for it, the good thing to know is that is going to be

Get Healthy, Get Happy
If you're on a computer, you're most likely in a first world country. You don't have to worry about starving, and you dont have to worry about hard labor that overworks you to exhaustion. In fact, chances are alot of us have the opposite problem. We often exercise too little and eat too often. Now thats its spring, alot of us will want to do this challenge anyway, so here goes!
(Kudos to anyone who starts this challenge and continues to do the previous challenge as well)
These challenges will be harder for some than others, so I’ve included three levels of commitment.
Level 1: baby steps
Cut your junk food and fast food in half. Go for a 5 min walk everyday. Think about what you are putting into your body and if its an addiction.
Level 2: sprint
Cut out all junk food and fast food. Do basic exercises for 10-20 mins a day. Think about how you are treating the body G

The main theme is for your sonic OC in outfits from Tron:Legacy. You are supposed to create your own scene if your oc was in the movie Tron:Legacy. If you hate the movie, then too bad.
1. Use your Sonic OC's (max 3)
2. You search up "Tron legacy clothing for men/women" and find clothing for your oc to wear or you make your own. If you use google, link me to the costumes you've used. Condition: The costumes must not be from the movie. It needs to be costumes other people made. (Male OC have the excuse to use the costume from the movie)
3. The scene you portray must be your idea, not in the movie. In brief explanation, it must be original!!! You're drawing one picture with your oc, no animations allowed. Screenshots are ok.
4. No mature content at all!!
5. You must make it yourself! No collaborations allowed!

In the Judging Section
What the judges were saying: Usually we don't choose entries with preexisting designs, but this idea seems so Disney we simply could not resist! It seems like it'd make a great movie in the same line as Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers. An enchanting idea that made us wish we could watch it right now!
What the judges were saying: Another great example of a Disney-fication of classic literature. DubyaScott came up with very animate-able designs and even created a sidekick character in classic Disney fashion. It's another movie we'd just love to buy tickets for!

Champions of the First 100 (Part 1)A lot of people tend to ask me certain questions about what I review. Like... what has the worst animation, what has the worst messages, and etc. So... I thought it would be fun to go through the first 100 Animated Atrocities (and every 100 afterwards) and tell you which ones I think have got the worst qualities of each category and a few other new categories that people have been asking me about. Also, I'm not looking at the atrocity sheets. This is totally from memory. So, let's go in order, starting with...Champions of the First 100 (Part 1)2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Atrocity Champions: Most Ear-Grating Audio
I've said it many times, that one of the things I hate dealing with the most in my reviews is cringe-inducing audio. I seldom complain about it because it's not a common category of bad (excluding annoying voice acting), and even then I tend to avoid them. It's very hard to convey to my audience how annoying sound is, without subjecting my audience directly to them. However, each and every one of these is burned into my memory bec

Fairly OddParents and New Character SyndromeSo, I've decided to start a journal series where I go further in depth with one particular topic brought up in any given review of mine. It's not so much to talk about said episode, but said topic that that review introduces. Both admirables and atrocities and even MLP reviews may have a bigger topic to talk about, but I can't say that EVERY single review will have an expanded topic. Sometimes it'll be serious topics, like One Coarse Meal's tangential topic of when jokes go too far. Sometimes it won't be as serious, like following Return of Slade's logic is how the dark age of animation began, and even back then people did those things out of necessity and not inherent laziness. Sometimes, yeah, what I talk about will be tangentially related, like Doggy Poo's when is an idea dead on arrival?Fairly OddParents and New Character Syndrome6 months ago in Personal More Like This

Well currently I am going through Finals and the last days of my school semester, so I am going to be busy. So I have no time to make something similar to the 100 watchers special I did in October 2013.

Dream came true (TF2 + Leeroy Jenkins meme)So one day I finally watched the Leeroy Jenkins meme video ... (origin: World of Warcraft)Dream came true (TF2 + Leeroy Jenkins meme)9 months ago in Personal More Like This
...and then the next night, I had a dream where I was playing Team Fortress 2 with a friend (not specified in the dream, but I know it's a TF2 playmate) - his Steam name was "LEEROY" and mine was "JENKINS". And we were performing the medic-chain, where one medic activates the uber to make both of them invincible, while the other builds up his/her Ubercharge before the first uber runs out by trying to get 4 sucessful hits with the Ubersaw, each hit filling up 25% of the meter. When the first medic's uber runs out, the other medic activates the second one while the first medic switches to the melee weapon (Ubersaw). Rinse and repeat - a never-ending cycle of hilarity. XD
In the dream, we were getting this in the killfeed at the top-right corner of my eye (screen):
" LEEROY + JENKINS [Ubersaw kill icon] [player who just got killed by us] "

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Salmos 23 (Reina-Valera 1960)
Jehová es mi pastor; nada me faltará. En lugares de delicados pastos me hará descansar; Junto a aguas de reposo me pastoreará.
