Update Journal

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 29, 2018, 3:18 PM
:iconravesplz:

LOL omg it's almost been a year since I wrote a journal whaaat :'D

So, I've actually been working at Brown Bag Films in Toronto since late February, and since the 13th this month I've moved from one show there to another! \o/

Been learning Toonboom along the way and having fun in general. It's a really great place to work, and it feels so different from all the years I spent doing private online commissions, it's a nice change!

On my personal work, I still wanna continue fleshing out that Project Nameless thing I keep picking at (the wonderland circus idea) and eventually someday return to my Knights of the End idea, all I did was design those four masked guys and I already wanna redesign them lmaoo. Been toying with the idea of making a website just to dump the Nameless info on because I keep falling into the bad habit of posting random sketches and writing assorted OC facts in the artist comments, to the point of either repeating myself or contradicting myself lmao;;

I've also been working on a little dragony animation lately, hopefully soon I'll post a WIP at least on my twitter c:

Still working on that game idea as well that I've been working for a few years now, though it's basically down to a team of two now. It's going to be a long while yet until I can show anything for that, and maybe when I finally can, I'll be able to pick up steam with it if it gets any support ;v;

And I think that's everything for now! Thanks again to everyone who continues to enjoy and follow my work <3

THINGS

Journal Entry: Tue May 23, 2017, 8:00 PM
:iconpapmingplz:

It's been so long since I made a journal here omg

I'm sorry everyone aahh ;7;

I've been so busy in the last few months, you guys only see like 20% of the things I work on really. A lot of my time is taken up with making adoptables and doing commissions every month on FA, then a few days are spent each month to do some kind of personal art, whether it's fan art or OC stuff. That's the stuff I've been posting here that you can see, it's on my twitter as well. I haven't forgotten about the OCs like Spades or the Knights of The End masked guys that I was working on either! I said I wanted to be more consistent with my OCs and I meant it but it's been crazy trying to balance everything. That pokemon picture with Blaziken, Empoleon and Decidueye for example, I had been waiting for months to finally have a chance to draw that idea out. I've been meaning to design the Knights' weapons for a long time now, among some other pics I had in mind for them so I hope I can return to that soon. o(-<

Aside from that I had also been working on animations for my portfolio for a few months, as well as new business card art and setting up my demo reel and all kinds of stuff related to that. I went to an animation job fair and had an interview a few weeks ago at a local studio, so I hope I can hear back from them soon. Then amongst all of this, I've been working in little increments on a game with a couple of friends, though unfortunately it's still far too early in development for me to show. I hope I can reveal what it is eventually~ ;v;

So yeah haha, to sum it up I've basically been up to art, art, drawing, animating, designing, arting, ART ART, DRAW DRAW, and maybe a little bit of playing Zelda.

I also wanted to share my portfolio animation work on DA, but it won't let me submit the files since it's not swfs, so here's the links to them on twitter:

I hope all is well with everyone here too, and thanks for sticking around and following my stuff! qvq

8 OC Facts Tag Thing... Meme... CASSIAN

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 1, 2016, 11:15 AM
:iconpapmingplz:

I keep getting tagged for these things asfdgsdsfg

Cassian
Cassian Ref by Lanmana

1. Unlike Lias who was a human that was turned into a vampire, Cassian is a pure-blooded vampire that was born naturally. He is around 300-400 years old (I think?).

2. Cassian lives in a castle hidden by his powerful illusory magic, deep enough in a forest that it has gone undisturbed by man for centuries.

3. He leads a small village of vampires in this castle, where they are more or less stuck in the victorian age and ways of doing things. There are vampiric traditions, fashions and cultural differences to humanity present here, due to them being isolated from human civilization and progress.

4. His transformations include a bat, a horse, a wolf and a wolbat, which is a monstrously large and fearsome combination of a wolf and a bat. Because his main talent is illusions, he is capable of appearing as many other things if he wishes, but unlike his transformations, they would merely be a trick of the mind and he would not physically become the illusion he creates.

5. He and his brethren require just enough blood that is proportionate to how often they exert their more advanced powers. Abilities are limited in the castle by law to conserve their domestic human supply. They are capable of surviving many weeks comfortably without any blood if no powers are used, though transforming into something like Cassian's invented wolbat form results in him needing to devour an entire human to compensate.

6. Like all other vampires, Cassian cannot bear the sunlight, except for when he is in his wolf form. Over centuries he had strengthened his wolf form to reflect the sunlight with his fur and protect his skin.

7. If made to wear a limiter like Lias, not only would it suppress his abilities but it would cause great pain and discomfort to Cassian, almost as if he was being poisoned or drugged.

8. Cassian was actually a humanized and renamed version of my vampony, Paradox :') They're both like separate characters now haha;;;
Paradox the Vampony by Lanmana



I was going to do facts for Veil but I couldn't think of what else to put LMAO;;;

Here have a rough concept of an older version of him though :'D

Coming Up in October

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 22, 2015, 9:08 AM
:iconnashaplz:

This month has been crazy busy so far, just trying to save up money in general because I had spent so much in the past few months on dumb stuff like nendoroids...

*COUGH COUGH*






And I joined a Rune Factory rp group so I was busy making an app for that as you may have seen, I've been participating in a month-long mighty no.9 contest in the backer forums where I've been designing robots every week, did birthday presentos and bronycon work and just everything everrr 

weh. o(-<

And so, next month I'll be doing another design challenge with friends like I did in June, so hopefully I'll survive through that. There was a second part to my Paradox and Veil comic in the works, but in the last few months things (as you can see) have just kept coming up and taking my attention away from it, so that's why that's not done yet. Lan is the gomen :c

I honestly haven't even been able to work on it this month because of that contest stuff and now the design challenge will likely impede it as well. Keep in mind that every month, in order to pay my bills I'm doing adoptables and commissions over on FA so all of these things combined basically results in me drawing and designing until my fingers fall off. Now you know why I never usually do comics, I'm so slow, ahahaha;;;



Never: HOW ARE YOU NOT FUCKING DONE THIS YET?
Me: WELL THINGS CAME UP AND IT'S A LOT TO DRAW OKAY AND I DIDN'T HAVE TIME--
Never:

RED ASH ANIME by STUDIO 4C (7 DAYS LEFT!)

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 22, 2015, 9:42 AM
:iconravesplz:

EDIT: Just updated with the beautiful new image board shown in today's update! There's seven days left and it's almost reached its goal now! Studio 4˚C is going out of their way to sweeten the deal and is paying heavily out of pocket to see this through. If you love anime, animation and enjoy their work please consider giving it a look~

LINK TO THE KICKSTARTER HERE
kck.st/1NGRGNl
kck.st/1NGRGNl
kck.st/1NGRGNl
kck.st/1NGRGNl



THE WHAT:


Studio 4˚C is doing a kickstarter for a new 18 minute animation (with 50 minutes of total content on the disc) about epic, fast-paced treasure hunting and exploration! It will be available in HD in Blu Ray format once (if) it's made~

Achieving stretch goals will help make it more into a full length, feature film! The more they get, the longer they can make it!

And a big, BIG feature is that if you become a backer, you actually get to make your own story ideas, character designs, robot designs, ANY KIND OF IDEA and show it off to Studio 4˚C, and they might actually add it into the animation!

For example, here's my Red Ash characters that I'm working on that I will be pitching to them eventually as random background characters:

redashOC by Lanmana


THE WHO:

STUDIO 4˚C! They are the studio that is responsible for a great portion of the Animatrix, for Batman: Gotham Knight, for Halo Legends: "Origins" and "The Babysitter", for Mind Game, for Tekkonkinkreet, and the ThunderCats 2011 anime! And much more!

  


THE WHERE:

/LINKS TO IT MORE

kck.st/1NGRGNl
kck.st/1NGRGNl
kck.st/1NGRGNl
kck.st/1NGRGNl


THE WHEN:

The kickstarter is happening right now! It will be ending in less than 12 days though, so if you're interested in supporting their animation, think fast! It's already more than halfway funded, but it's in a bit of a pickle right now so it could really use some support! :D


THE WHY:

Studio 4˚C is working alongside Comcept to help create a new IP with Red Ash. It is something that might strike a chord with fans of Mega Man Legends games, and the enchanting story and fun characters those games brought to life. Of course, Red Ash is it's own brand-new thing too, so you don't have to be a fan of Megaman or even a gamer to get into an animation about treasure hunting! These are all new characters in an all new world for us to bring to life~

The game and the animation are it's own separate things too, and Studio 4˚C has free reign on how they want to portray the same characters and the world they inhabit. By using Kickstarter, both the animation and the game have a chance to be made with complete, artistic freedom! No smelly publishers mucking up the original vision, taking things out, censoring, imposing near-impossible deadlines and shoehorning stupid things in last-minute.

Also, by using Kickstarter we as backers get a front row seat to watch these things being made behind the scenes, and get a chance to be a part of that creative process~




I also check the kickstarters frequently so if you back then idk, you might see me around in the comment section~ :D

So if any of this strikes your fancy, go give it a back!
