WELL THIS EXPLAINS IT(x)

Have you ever seen something completely baffling but also technically excellent? I can’t believe how well this person edited Jane into Treasure Planet so she and Captain Amelia could fight the bad guy from Osmosis Jones. “Man,” I say to myself, “I could never make this bizarre music video about beloved animated characters becoming ghosts.”

THIS IS WAY MORE IMPRESSIVE THAN I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE LIKE HOLY SHIT MAD RESPECT.

This is it.  This is the pinnacle of nerdom.  This is the greatest height of nerdery that has ever been reached before.

Peter in Loki’s body on a bus downtown to the real Loki and making an excuse that he’s going to a comic convention.

Never will such levels of pure fucking nerd ever be seen again, it’s just not possible.  This is a beautiful day, I am glad I am alive to experience this, god bless.

I’mma let you finish, but the pinnacle of nerddom is actually this sequence in the fourth issue of the 2005 Giffen/DeMatteis/Maguire Defenders:

Do you know who those fashionable gentlemen are? They are Dr. Strange and Namor. They are hiding for Dormammu on a ravaged Earth.

Do their outfits look familiar? That’s because they’re the same motherfucking disguises Kirk and Spock wear in the 1967 Star Trek episode “City on the Edge of Forever.”

You know why Peter Parker looks so downtrodden on that bus in his shiny-ass horns? It’s not because he’s trapped in Loki’s body. It’s because he knows his cosplay game will never be this fucking on-point.

IMPERIUS. MOTHERFUCKING. REX.

oh my god

HOLD UP

THAT WAS NOT THE NERD PINNACLE EITHER.

the highest nerd reach was on march first, 1999 in JLA when martian manhunter went undercover as a japanese woman only to have his real identity discovered by bruce wayne.

Why is the name the giveaway and not the fucking space green pant suit? because j’onn chose to name himself after the real name of fellow martian sailor mars:

this means one of two things. A: the jla and the sailor senshi live in one universe and bruce just knows everyone’s god damn business or way more likely that B: BOTH MM AND FUCKING BATMAN HAVE READ/WATCHED SAILOR MOON AND ENJOYED IT ENOUGH TO REMEMBER HER GOD DAMN NAME. KEEP YOUR CONS PETER, AND GREAT CLOSET COSPLAY  BOYS, DID YOU FIND THAT AT A THRIFT STORE? TIME TO GET OUT THE WAY BECAUSE J’ONN AND BRUCE GOT ANIME TO WATCH AND THEY HAVE NO TIME FOR YOUR BULLSHIT.

Martian Manhunter: Agent of Love and Oreos, the pretty skimpy suited soldier of Mars! In the name of Mars, he will out nerd you!

This post is gold

STOP USING PEOPLE’S SELFIES AND COSPLAYS WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT TO MAKE HYPNOSIS PORN

if you want to ask a bisexual or asexual person about their sexual history to verify that they’re queer, but you don’t want them to take it the wrong way, try this useful communication technique:

give them twenty dollars and go away.

Same with lesbians who used to date men and gay men who used to date women.

Thus, the logic of the feminist argument to “Teach men not to rape” is revealed.

Yes because it’s such a radical notion to expect rapists to control themselves.

Uh, we do tell thieves not to rob, though. We actually spend a lot of energy teaching kids that stealing is wrong. We keep trying to teach them it’s wrong through their teens and adult years.
And when someone gets robbed? Cops don’t ask them if their front door was locked. They don’t ask them if they invited the thief into their house and maybe said the thief was free to take things before changing their mind the next day. And this is true even though sometimes people do get robbed by folks they invite in under false pretenses.
Cops and lawyers and judges don’t work together to make people who get robbed feel like shit for not installing extra security systems or putting bars on their windows. They don’t use people’s former history of inviting neighbors in and letting them borrow stuff to argue that they had no right to expect someone to respect their property. The media doesn’t talk about how the thief’s promising life was ruined by their victim’s decision to prosecute.
Your metaphor is bad and you should feel bad.

I do love a good false analogy.

MIKE ROUSH / The Hidden Life of the Burrowing Owl / 5:16

I have always been fascinated by wildlife documentaries. As a kid I would take my mom’s camera and try and get as close to the neighborhood animals as I could. Most of the time this would mean long hours sitting motionless on the back deck with bird seed sprinkled on my lap and shoulders. I never got the shot I wanted, so when Chris and Shannon  asked me if I wanted to make an animated film for Titmouse, I said yes before they finished asking.

Early thumbnails of the burrowing owl.

Rough turnaround.

"Owl" was animated in Flash. I used a technique where I would animate traditionally very rough, then I would take a second pass cleaning up symbols that I would be able to reuse later. Most of the final animation you see in "Owl" is puppeted symbol animation with hundreds of symbols and a different puppet for each shot. This way I could get the detail and animation quality I wanted.

image

The Flash break-down on one of the owl puppets. Lots of feathers!

One of my favorite parts of making this film was having to get out of the studio and go on location. I found an amazing place in central California called The Carrizo Plain using google maps. I spent the weekends driving all around taking pictures and exploring. Fun fact: The burrow used in the short was an actual owl burrow. On one of the days I was taking photos of the burrow one hissed at me from inside the burrow with it’s rattlesnake like call. It scared me nearly to death.

image

This is how I made all the “live action” backgrounds. I drew a storyboard of what I wanted and photo collaged lots of pictures together to make it look like what I drew. Unfortunately these places don’t exist in real life.

image

Whenever the owl had to touch the flower or fork, I took hundreds of photos, cut them out in photoshop and animated them. Fun.

image

On location I used a couple stand-in models to get the lighting right and a maquette when animating for inspiration.

I had a great time making this film and when I was done we were lucky enough to show it at festivals around the world. After 4 years the “Owl” showed at more than 40 festivals, in over 25 countries. 

Can’t wait to do another one.

there is no one expecting dick to taste good though. i’ve never ever once met a cis dude paranoid about his genitals tasting weird or salty or sweaty or whatever. but of course pussy has to taste like fruit and whatever. OF COURSE.

MODELED AFTER asheathes's WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD

THE SCHOOL OF ONE THOUSAND NAMES:
In addition to the five static schools of witchcraft and wizardry on the North American continent, there is another school which has catered to students for thousands of years. It has no name and no location: some years the patchwork band of longhouses, teepees, and kivas appears in the Pacific Northwest; other years it sits on the tear-stained earth of Oklahoma; some years it resides in Canada or the upper reaches of  Alaska (a bit of a challenge for students from arid desert regions). The teachers come from the Salish, the Cherokee, the Navajo, the Iroquois, the Chippewa, and hundreds of other indigenous tribes. Rather than separate into houses, the students maintain their tribal ties: there’s no small amount of friction between different nations with historic feuds. The school has a legendary reputation for record-keeping and cultural preservation; students are also at the forefront of magical innovation, constantly searching for new answers to age-old questions (such as magic use in major urban areas). Wandless magic is common, but even more common is the process of creating one’s own wand: an elaborate ceremony that varies depending on tribal origin. It is considered a great privilege to collect a wand core from a mythical beast.Every summer there are huge celebrations combining dance and magic: families travel from all over the world to join their children at the school.
I’ve posted this before, but it needs to be posted again for another reason.

digital-darwinism:

I’ve talked about doing this for a while now, but I finally sat down and came up with an actual plan. I’m more than willing to do commission artwork upon request, and this also includes your original characters.

image

Why am I doing this?

I was out of work from March until the end of July. The job hunt in my city isn’t so great, considering the job fairs are limited to the state’s university students only and I attended a private women’s college instead.

(Update: I started a new job on July 19th. It’s a 40-hour position and pays $20 an hour. I’m getting to use my college degree and I love it, but it’s a temporary position that will end in December.)

I had a subsidy coming in from my immediate family, but it’s quickly running out. Not only that, but I have had a series of issues come up since the first time I posted this signal boost:

1. I have moved to another state and may soon be changing addresses again. My sister is serious about buying a house and I’ll be paying rent. At present, I’m unsure how much this will run me.

2. I was laid off and have been searching for work since before the first move. Do you have any idea what the job market is like for English majors?

3. I am going to have to pay people to help me move my heavier things and no one has given me a cost estimation.

Here’s a few examples of what I can produce:

Head Sketches (Icons and Avatars)

3/4 Body Sketches

image

image

Full Sketches

image

image

Multiple Character (SFW, but I can also do NSFW)

image

Of course, all of these are in full color and full shading. I am willing to knock a few dollars off for line art only and flat color. Here’s an example of each:

image

image

What is my rate?

After conducting a little research online for what is average, and understanding that there are much better artists out there than me, I’ve come up with this system, which is in USD:

  • Avatar/Icon Commission ($15 full color and shade, $13 flat color, $11 black and white line-art.)
  • Bust, 3/4 Commission ($25 full color and shade, $22.50 flat color, $20 black and white line art.)
  • Full Body Commission ($35 full color and shade, $32.50 flat color, $30 black and white line art.)

When it comes to adding an extra character to an image, I’ll charge $8 to $10 extra on a bust or 3/4 sketch and $13 to $15 extra in a full body commission. There will also be an additional $5 if the art is NSFW.

I also have a few promotionals:

Avatars:

  • Buy 3, get a 4th free
  • Buy 5, get a bust sketch for free
  • Buy 10, get a full body for free

Bust or 3/4s:

  • Buy 2, get a 3rd free
  • Buy 4, get a full body for free

Full Body

  • Buy 3, get a Bust or 3/4 sketch for free
  • Buy 5, get a 6th full body free

Payments will be handled through PayPal (I now officially have one). I don’t mind sketching your original characters (in fact, a few of my examples above are OCs) and I’m not choosy over fandoms. If you’re interested, shoot this account a fan-mail or private message and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

GUYS THIS IS SKYE SHE’S MY BABE AND SHE’S SO GOOD AT ART LOOKIT THAT GO BUY IT
