Fond of scary things? And beautiful concept art?

Journal Entry: Sat May 10, 2014, 8:16 AM


If so (for the first part "scary things"), then please check out my animatic right here in my journal, yo! Right below! C: 
Story behind it: we had to choose a random scene from a story we made for our Visual Development course at Ringling, and so my story "The Mimic" is about an explorer coming back from a long expedition in Antarctica to visit his little sister and her fiance. But there is something pretty uncool about him that they can't put a finger on.
Till it's too late, of course. c:



Speaking of this animatic...
Do you guys love concept art? Do you guys love beautiful art in general? Animation and cartoons and exaggerated styles of varying kinds? Do you guys love the inspiration it fills you with, all the way to the very top o' your artloving soul? 

PLEASE PLEDGE TO OUR CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT BOOK DESIGN UNSCRIPTED ON IT'S KICKSTARTER PAGE!

Every $1 counts! If you wish not to pledge much, just $1 will help us out! If not, then please spread the word!

"DESIGN UNSCRIPTED"!



Dang straight! We visual development artists (well over 25 of us!) are putting together a book TEEMING with concept art and general gorgeousness! (My work included as well, in case you're curious; and it's stuff I never showed you guys before)! :D

THERE WILL EVEN BE DIGITAL COPIES OF ANIMATICS WE MADE.

We are so close to our goal, too! WE ONLY HAVE 6 DAYS TO //AT LEAST// REACH THE STRETCH GOAL.

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!
PLEDGE MONEY IF YOU GOT IT!
Help us make this a reality, guys. It'd mean a lot to me. c: We only have a few days left.

From the looks of things, am I a cartoonist, crawling like some spineless twit through the roots of this website? Most likely.
A illustrator, called Andi, welcomes you to this wasteland of pencils and ink and whatnot.
Will her love of cartoons quench her thirst for something more?
Will she be spared shameful boredom?
Let us gloriously hope.

WELCOME, NEIGHBORS

Forgive thy Enemy by CountANDRA
Forgive thy Enemy
My entry for the Kubo & The Two Strings Contest.

Gonna be real here: the characters of Kubo are magnificent, but my favorite has always been the Moon King. A blind deity so cold, so perfect, so lacking in humanity, he could not see nor feel the warmth of a human's soul, the bitterness of grief, nor the sorrows of failure. How could one be so lonely, so fearful as to deny emotion, to deny pain? Does that make him cowardly? Perhaps. But it certainly did not make him as powerful as his grandson.

I believe one of Kubo's grandest obstacles was no doubt his climactic fate when it came to his grandfather: his willingness to be kind to his enemy, rather than strike him down at his weakest. The Moon King and his evil daughters have taken everything from this boy - everything.  
But he did not take Kubo's humanity. 
They fought. Anger rose. Rage swept the world in a torrent of chilling moon dust. 
And in the end, when the Moon King is human - weak, mortal, defenseless, lost, looking to Kubo for help - the boy does not shirk from him. He has the bravery, the maturity, and the willingness to help this man.

In a way, Kubo saved the Moon King from himself. He could have killed him, but he made his choice: mercy. I could think of no one more heroic than this kiddo (and nothing more traumatic than color dodge layers).
