Yang vs. Tifa: End It Now Please
So like, I'm pretty sure every Death Battle fan knows that Yang vs. Tifa is their most hated episode. And after seeing so much hate, I've decided its time for me to take a stand and end this bullshit. I WILL NOW DEFEND YANG VS TIFA... ...'S JUSTIFIED HATE. So I could tell everyone why I think Tifa claps her tits together, creating a shockwave that rips Yang's flesh off casually but I think we all get it by now: The episode is wrong and most people who defend it are just triggered over their 1-dimensional RWBY characters losing. I'm rather going to discuss the aftermath of this bad episode. Ever since its release, its strange. I barely a

Things Life Throws You
Here I am sitting at my desk at 1am staring past the monitors thinking about life. Another year is almost over. And man, what a year. I would be lying if I said it has not been the most difficult year I've ever experienced. It has been loss after loss. Losing battle after losing battle. I've fought to stay hopeful and positive only to be met with more loss and disappointment. Every area of my life has been shaken and flipped upside down. I still keep a smile on my face for the people around me. Still making a living to support the little ones who now live on the opposite side of the country. Facing daily memories and reminders of i

I'm getting faster. Much faster. I know understand part of adding texture and punctuating rhythm to my movies also means adding more variety to my life. Years ago when I was in better shape I made Haloid in just over 2 months. Dead Fantasy 2 was made in about 4 months. These days as I get older and gain more skill. Somehow I seem to be getting slower. And part of it is re igniting my passion for things.

My movies have always been very rhythmic. And exercising rhythm in my life adds haste to my process. In an odd way, much like dancing adding texture and beats to my work means being ok with going slower. By learning how to be faster.

Im an open minded individual, Even though I don't believe in heaven, god, or an after life, I do hope that we relive the time line and do our lives over again after we die. Only small tweaks here and there. Hopefully one of the time lines, I get to meat you. Your words are helping me out of a hole I dug myself into. Thanks. You were better than Jesus.

Looking at his page and seeing his last journal made me start sobbing yet again. I hope his account doesnt get taken down just because he can't be active on it anymore....

There's that wasted name account here in deviantart for 11 years and still around. I doubt his would be as he have done inspirational work and artist figure. He would be one of the many who will be remembered as an inspiration artist here in dA and one who will be my hero and my inspiration for my animation career. Thanks to Mr. Oum.

I find it ironic that this is the title of his last journal, and that the one before it was titled "The Other Side".  At the same time, I find it kind of uplifting.

At the point I had writing that message he was still well. Yes, i had herd the news. He passed just under a year later after I wrote. I never herd from him. Miss his wonderful personality and amazing skills.  One day I do hope someone will lovingly continue his work. What a sweet dedication that would be.

Master-ofmanga's avatar
Dead fantasy, sorry, but it's never going to be completed. But RWBY's currently on season 4 so...I guess it's time for you to start binge watching.
