A/N: I gotta admit, I really enjoyed writing this one -even though it took 5 friggin days- I really want to thank @imagining-supernatural for beta’ing this fic. She is amazing and had she not pointed out all that stuff this fic would probably be trash. Thank you so much <3
Film Meme | 1/10 Films ↓ Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas
You’re not thinking big enough, Sinbad. Steal the book for ransom and you can be rich enough to lounge on an island beach. Steal the book for me, and you can buy the beach. And the island. And the world.
I desperately needed to sketch something cute; since I’ve still got a ridiculously various playlist, painting another cartoonish John Segundus to some German not-quite-punk-and-not-quite-rockabilly felt REALLY good - so I hope I can share it with this image…
…aaand yes, that is somehow on the same shelf with painting another weird dark version of Ed Hogg; the process is rather meditative, mind that ;3
Top 6 favorite French cartoons ( also I got Pokemon Moon from Walmart on Friday I think)
Ohh this is a really good question Roya! Also congrats on getting pokemon moon :D As usual, it’s difficult to decide who ranks higher than the others (well except for number one) so they all rank close to each other for me :3
1.Code Lyoko: bless this show, one of the very few that managed to blend 2D and cgi really well, also the story was really good
2.Titeuf: this was really fun to watch as a kid, like a sitcom but for kids somehow XD And I can’t find a gif from the cartoon so have a pic from the comics, oh this poor dork and his weird hair XD
3.Oggy and the Cockroaches: imagine Tom and Jerry’s slapstick but crazier, and you got the main vibe of the show XD it’s quite creative, as it manages to convey a lot of ideas without any speech at all, that’s impressive
I wasn’t kidding when I said it’s crazy
4.Wakfu: oh well of course I had to include this great fantasy show! The world it’s set in is so wonderful and interesting, the characters charming, and the story is quite engaging, I love it
5.The Daltons: when one of the most memorable group of characters from a franchise gets their own comedy spin-off you know it’s going to be fun *thumbs up* Made as an homage to the creators of the Lucky Luke comics, from the same people who made Oggy, it keeps some of the silly slapstick together with a good dose of crazyness
6.LoliRock: Now, apart from the fact that I deeply love magical girl series, this show is really lovable, with interesting charming characters, pretty great animation (I love you guys at studio Inspidea in Malaysia, keep up the good work) and some cool worldbuilding and lore that we’re surely going to discover more in the next season!
Honorable Mentions because they didn’t fit the top 6:
Martin Mystére (Martin Mystery): I probably learnt more about myths and legends from this show than anywhere else, good supernatural adventure series
Totally Spies: from the same team as Martin Mystery, pretty cool story with an amazing main trio and good balance between their civilian life and the spy life *thumbs up*
The adventures of TinTin (1991–1992): Looking for adventures all around the world, and mysteries to solve? There you have it! It’s pretty nice to watch, and surprisingly relaxing to me, not sure why XD
I think a big part on this has to do with the silence during these weird moments. If you notice they are almost void of sound. (i’m talking lots of little moments in scenes adding up) It makes them a lot more creepy and intense…
I think it’s also because the rest of the show is so upbeat and fast paced. When it slows down and gets weird and silent it packs some serious heartbeat and shivers for the soul.
I’ve noticed that the color palet gets a drastic change as well. Like it picks from a certain variation and sticks to it instead of just bright and rainbow all over the place. It marks the passing from fun to “oh-uh” real fast! o.o
I dont know who made this youtube channel and why they so specifically seemed to target my my musical tastes of lowfi sad indie garage band punk and classic cartoons and anime gifs and spanish subtitles but this is my new favorite youtube channel now.
Twitter is so fucking weird. Like the BBS youtubers and extensions of that group are all just retweeting art or selfies of people wearing their merch or sending positivity and shit, and the Overwatch youtubers are complaining about updates and bugs/broken features that need to be changed, so relatively normal stuff.
And then there’s the TF2 YouTubers where one is laughing at a gif of a 90’s cartoon of skeletons using each other as motorbikes and another who keeps tweeting pictures of avocado and writing messages in binary code
If you haven’t heard, I’m independently animating the first Roz Wells + The Vortex cartoon, a short called “Ant Agony.”
Roz Wells + The Vortex is an animated series I’ve been pitching around LA for a year. It’s about 3 kids (Roz, Uma and Dee - a human, a gray “alien” and a sasquatch) who play in a punk band called The Vortex.
All the major studios have seen it, as well as a handful of other places, and all of them have rejected it, so guess what? I’m gonna make it myself!
I’ll announce more soon, like voice actors and a potential release date. In the meantime I’m shooting for late summer/early fall in general as a release date.
“I did an interview once where I was asked who I found attractive and I went on about cartoons and Nala from ‘The Lion King’ - and it’s a bit weird but various of my ex-girlfriends actually did look like Nala.”
“Learning lines is hard for me because I have the attention span of a six year old. That’s why being on planes all the time is so useful – I’m forced to learn out of boredom.”
“I had weird crushes on cartoon characters as a kid, especially April from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. She was so fit but of course I’ve never met her, mainly because she doesn’t exist in real life!”
Trade for drawsome-dreamer! She just wanted me to draw anything Steven Universe, so I took the opportunity to do an animation! Also, I don’t draw Stevonnie enough even though they’re one of my big faves. Sorry there’s little mistakes in it and stuff, heh… I was in a bit of a hurry. But, despite that, I think it came out pretty good. I just wish flash gifs didn’t save in 256 colors… :(
I picked up a bunch of new followers this week, so maybe they haven’t seen these…
These are gifs from a recent show pitch I made called Roz Wells + The Vortex. I brought it to Nick, Disney and Cartoon Network, but so far Nick & Disney have officially passed on it for the moment (CN haven’t said anything yet).
In the meantime, I still love it, so I put some info out about it here a while back to just let it out into the wild. I still plan on creating some animated Roz Wells content with or without studio involvement…
