Following the guest strip by Tiggs, I've just uploaded a new and 'disgustingly cute' comic at www.a3s.co.uk
Ten things about YOUOne of those ten things memes. Just ten random things about myself;
1) My name is Marc, but Im also known as Maku-neko, Dante Kimachi, and Dante Graywards.
2) I often feel trapped due to how the current society works, I cant go on further uni courses, cant explore the world, and rarely have time to do a zillion other things Id rather be getting on with. Need to win a few million pounds.
3) My friends mean a lot to me, Im ecstatic when theyre happy and depressed when theyre sad.
4) I sometimes get some very violent scenarios played in my head, often involving me fighting/killing chav types. Id like to think that in a real fight Id fair quite well, very few have actually seen me in proper attack mode.
5) I have this thing about needing to wash my mitts after handling food, possibly linked with not wanting to get console control pads greasy, I dunno.
6) I know where my towel is.
7) I supply my own sound effects for most sit
Stuff and things #089The rough scripts and sketches for Automatic Freestyle still haven't been fully sorted but at least I got a bit of a start on them all, it's really in such a state. Maybe I'll have more chance in the Christmas and New Year holiday.
Quick recap of life in general since the last update;
* Work at the office has been insane
* Keep catching colds
* Being hyper excited about going to Japan in March 2010
* Had a couple of epic nights out with peeps
* Had some more visits to other awesome friends
* Had a birthday (I'm 28 now)
* Ruth made epic Kuro and Shiro models which could possibly end up being official a3s merchandise
* The DSA finally allowed me to pass the often rigged driving test
* Lost lots of time buying and sorting Christmas pressies for people
* Read the new Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book
* Rinsed through New Super Mario Bros Wii
* Scoffed a lot of chocolate
* Saved the world from complete destruction and no one noticed
Unloved shirtI wanted to buy a shirt on the cheap to zombify for Halloween.
Most were around £20 but I found the clear-out section and saw this sticker on the one I bought;
"This item has previously been on sale at the higher price for at least 28 days in the past 6 months in at least 5 Next clearance or Lime stores."
I felt so sorry for the shirt. Poor shirt *sniff*
The price was £5... the till rang it up as £3.
I'm gonna feel bad when I rip it up a bit and splatter it with fake blood.
Dante returns... sort of... ish.Finally found some time to update my dA and check out... erm...

Me, the 13th Duke of Wybourne? Here? Updating my dA account? With my reputation? Surely not.
It'll happen some when... maybe.
So... so busy T_T
Your Shikamaru and Temari photo requestsGah, will I ever find time to reply to all the comments and upload new stuff here?
Anyway, yes, your Shikamaru & Temari photo requests!
This May (just before Expo), Ill be cosplaying Shikamaru from Naruto and attending a photo shoot. There are various plots and plans, but Im also open to suggestions from the fans of the character.
Is there any particular pose youd like to see? Any scene from the manga/anime we could try to homage?
Well also be joined by a Temari cosplayer for some ShikaTem photos, so say if you have any requests involving those two characters.
If your requests are based on fanart or the manga/anime, link me to the pic and well see what we can do ^_^
Christmassy '08 season noteEveryone been having a good holiday?
I'm still having a major catch up with the online stuff. dA will have my full attention at some point soonish along with new uploads. Sorry I'm not replying to everything right away.
A particular exceptionally awesome person I know gave me a dA subscription!
I have no idea how it works, how long it lasts or what it really does.... is this the full list?

Mostly the same as the last entry, I'm still trying to get on with various projects and also do lots of other things. Full time work does somewhat get in the way of world domination.
I had an interview for a part time art/computer teaching job in a college and essentially got the job, but I had to turn them down because it just wasn't feasible due to the distance and the few hours they only needed me per week. Was a shame because I really liked the place for several reasons. I was able to help a little with a few things and some advice, but yeah, had to miss out on that one.
The anime convention, Amecon 08, was excellent, and hopefully I'll have a report up at some point, although don't hold your breath, I still have finished the one from 2007. It made me really happy to meet up with some new and old friends. The only down-point was that there was so much going off at once that we missed out on a lot of stuff.
Stuff and things #082The weather can't make its mind up, chilling winds and pouring with rain, or bright and hot clear sunny days. May is going to be a busy month, I'm going to be all over the place, visiting far-off friends on certain weekends, taking tests, going on a 'team leader' course at work June is already starting to get booked up, no wonder it feels like the year is flying by already.
The past Free Comic Book Day and general hangout was fun even if illness befell some of our number. I'm doing what I can to chill-out lately, as I keep getting ill myself and generally slip into the old routine of excessively stressing and not sleeping well. Getting back to making time to play some games isn't overly productive but it is a lot of fun and makes for some nice escapism. 'FF:CC:Ring of Fates' on the DS does this well, and so does the excellent 'Mario Kart Wii'. At one point Chibi-Kiki and me were playing against Ven and Fish (on wifi) while using Skype to communicate. It worked rather well actuall

Welcome! Welcome! And thank you so much for your interest in my work. Regardless of what got you here, I really appreciate your time and energy.

YouTube stuff + Update stuffSo, things are little bit hectic right now, and YouTube has been giving me a bit of hassle lately. I seem to have been losing subscribers since my last stream on my main channel, with a very big loss on my last Animated Atrocities upload, which is worrying, especially because any theory that I've had towards the numbers doesn't fit all of the evidence. (If people were getting sick of me talking about Growing Around stuff, then I should have had a positive turnaround when I uploaded an Animated Atrocities video). Add to that that like every single video this year has been copyright claimed, and let's just say that things have been discouraging as of late.
Other than that, I'm trying to stay optimistic, although the hot summer is making that a little bit difficult. But, some stuff that's coming up I guess. Most importantly is my Animated Atrocity review - with the upcoming Rugrats reboot, it's time to tackle Angelica and Suzie Preschool Daze, that show there that lasted four episo

16 Examples of how NOT to Pitch a LoglineI joined a Twitter dealie where you pitch to agents over Twitter, and I swear I learned more in one day about pitching than I have reading any number of how-to-write books.
A logline is a one sentence pitch of your story. It can be used on Twitter, but it's also used in person as an elevator pitch. It's the distilled essence of stakes, story, and character. Some people find it frustrating and intimidating, but I find it easier to do a logline than a query.
I got a few bites from agents, so I was quite pleased. I gained a lot of sympathy for them around 3 in the afternoon, though. Every pitch starts looking the same, and the really, really stupid ones start standing out. Some suffer from bad metaphors, bland stakes, or simple incomprehensibility. I've got 16 examples right here for you, so if any of your loglines look like these, you may want to consider a rewrite. (Incidentally, don't post your own loglines for my perusal. I'm not going to sit here and tell a bunch of people they
Hyper-Surreal Fractal Chess Set - The GAMEThe 3D PRINTED
The Project I have been working on subconsciously for years, which I mentioned in my previous post is now finished.
--- The Hyper Surreal Fractalic Mystical Chess set - My Masterpieces ---
The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet.
A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and Dalís sets.
Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!
