This is a little present for you, ksclaw . A way to thank you for everything you do here on tumblr and for all the times you helped me. I’ve been dreaming to draw your muse Ebony for a while, and I finally found the courage to. I’m sorry she doesn’t really look like your Ebony, but I’m not particularly skilled with human faces. I tried my best, I hope you’ll appreciate it

i’m so done with this disney vs. dreamworks fighting

okay I don’t really get involved in the whole “but people on the internet are wrong” thing but i s2g i’m going to my grave fighting about this whole disney/dreamworks bullshit where people who know nothing about animation get to make these grand sweeping statements and basically just trash movies that a lot of incredibly talented people worked really hard on

like okay this whole fucking thing about the ice in rotg/frozen and “omg the ice in frozen looks so tacky why are people talking about how good the animation is in frozen fuck disney long live dreamworks”

but here’s the thing: FROZEN’S MIND-BLOWING ANIMATION ISN’T THE ICE

 like please please please get this into your heads. yes, the ice in frozen DOES look  tacky. yes it looks AMAZING in rotg. 

and you know what? the community KNOWS rotg has awesome ice – they even gave a talk about animating jack frost’s frost patterns at SIGGRAPH, which is basically THE graphics conference. so like okay sit down, people ARE acknowledging rotg for having great animation.

this is why the comparison doesn’t work – rotg gets the beautiful ice animation, and frozen has the snow. this is like GROUNDBREAKING technology that no one has ever been able to do before (not even rotg), and it’s something that should be celebrated, not bashed. And, they presented their snow paper at SIGGRAPH the same year rotg did.

this is AMAZING stuff, just take a look:

this is incredibly advanced math and physics and computer science it’s not just some like artistic choice here there is so much time and amazing human intelligence here can we just take a moment and APPRECIATE IT 

so anyway please for the love of sweet baby jesus can we not just blindly hate on a studio that’s bringing SO MUCH RESEARCH AND DISCOVERY to the field??? dreamworks wouldn’t have had a fucking chance if pixar/disney didn’t step up and make animation such a critical field of study

what if we don’t pit these two companies against each other but instead celebrate their individual accomplishments?? thanks.

I see a lot of people mixing Guardians of Childhood books with the Rise of the Guardians movie, and I’m totally into that, I love it when people do that, 

but the books and movie are actually pretty different. I wanted to make a fine line between what is in the books, and what is in the movie. That way, people won’t get confused or we can look at things from a different perspective. 

I probably have left out a lot, and maybe forgotten a few things, but these are just the basics. 

There are still a few books yet to come out for The Guardians of Childhood, so we don’t have full confirmation for a lot of things. 

As for the movie, I really don’t see a sequel happening anytime soon, so I just went with the information we were given. 

Otherwise, feel free to use this as a reference for any art or fan fictions you guys want to make! Any questions? Go ahead and ask~ <3
