give me a job on set or something

Hypothetical Handplates scenario in which Sans realizes he can teach himself Common.

(Ugh, tumblr is making them blurry for some reason so I guess full-view if you want the not-blurry version??)

Convoluted explanation incoming. Handplates is an Undertale fancomic by @zarla-s and if you like Papyrus and Sans, go read it, is good stuff. So I guess this is an AU fancomic of an AU fancomic? I dunno, the idea wouldn’t leave my brain until I did something with it. So. Zarla did a Christmas doodle where Gaster gave the boys a box of ginger cookies that had the word COOKIES on the side in big letters, and because my job gives me way too much time to think about random stuff, I realized something.

In Handplates, Gaster taught the bros to read and write Wingdings but deliberately did not teach them monster Common (ie: English) so they can’t read his nametag or anything. Thing is, Wingdings is a 1:1 substitution cipher for English. Every Wingdings symbol exactly equals an English letter; it’s not a different language, just a different set of pictures. As somebody who has taught herself a fair number of substitution ciphers, there are a few things you look for when you’re trying to translate a code and you don’t have a key in front of you. Most notably, single-letter words (in English they will usually be A or I) or double letters next to each other. Like the OO in “COOKIES”.

Sans is smart. Gaster has fed them junk food before and odds are good Sans knows how to spell “COOKIES”. The word is on the box in huge letters and Gaster just said it out loud, so it is fresh in Sans’ mind. That double-O is a huge tip-off. He would put it together that the word on the front of the box matches what’s inside. Once you figure out a few of the letters, it becomes steadily easier to decode the rest.

I feel like Gaster exposes the boys to enough Common (the nametag, food wrappers, computer monitors, the books Sans sits on) that Sans could pick it up with a proper starting point. Papyrus probably not, because he had a hard enough time with Wingdings, but Sans is eager for any opportunity to undermine Gaster and I’m sure he’d jump at the chance. In this comic he elects not to tell Papyrus, though. He doesn’t know Gaster has cameras in the cell (or even what a camera is) but he’s figured out that Gaster can spy on them somehow, and the last time Gaster caught them learning something he didn’t like, Papyrus got the ever-loving hell beat out of him. So Sans keeps quiet about it for now. And thus starts the long-standing tradition of keeping important secrets from his brother.

On the technical side, it took me a freakin’ week to sketch and outline this whole thing. Coloring and shading only took me like a day. In the meantime Zarla actually kinda addressed the cookie comic, but this was almost done by then so oh well. I’m finding my poses and proportions turn out a LOT better when I’m doodling skeletons, like what, drawing basic anatomy will make you better at anatomy, you don’t say?? A lot of this was a self-challenge to see if I could imitate Zarla’s art style, and I referenced previous Handplates comics a lot for the backgrounds and Sans’ face. Full disclosure: Gaster’s pose up there is basically copied from Zarla’s original comic because I was rushing through to get on to the actual meat of the story. He’s just here for setup. I had fun trying to figure out how to do his Lost Soul head though. Also, I hate Papyrus’ face from the front. Also also, it was tricky trying to convey “mentally translating an unknown alphabet into a known one” when pretty much everyone who sees this comic is already familiar with the “unknown” one and not the “known” one, but I think I pulled it off. 

TL;DR- I imitated somebody else’s style to do an AU of an AU; I am not Zarla; Zarla is the creator of Handplates and also Gaster’s pose in the first panel; I like ciphers too much and also I gave the cookies icing because that is the only kind of ginger cookie I know.

“Why are you filming this?” Misha asked as you set your camera down on the table, facing him.

“Because my job is multimedia, babe,” you reminded him, “You’re lucky you got me in the interview.”

“Am I getting preferential treatment because I’m dating the reporter?” he asked, and you groaned.

“Come on, Mish, let me ask the questions so we can give people something to watch.”

He smiled at you, a glint in his eye, “We could give them something else to watch…”

He trailed off, and you laughed, shutting off the recording there.

“We’re not making a sex tape,” you told him, firmly, before starting up the camera again, ready to get on with the interview, “So, Misha, your fans have some questions that I’ve promised to get them answers to…”

show us your computer set up/office!

That’s mine, where I spent about 100% of my day at. At least the window gives me some natural light so I can photosynthesize while I work. Pretty basic set up, but it gets the job done.

Here’s generally where we work when we meet. Just my apartment with our great white board hanging from the wall containing top secret development information. Don’t mind the flowers and balloons.. it was my girlfriend’s birthday last Friday. Got a giant new table recently which is nice when we are testing the battle system on paper or something. 

Hope you enjoyed this exclusive look at the inside of our state of the art development head quarters. 

Thoughts about the “Minority Report” pilot:

- amazing diverse cast, i’m impressed so far

- loooooove Lara and Meagan Good is incredible. also i want her her contacts, how do i get her contacts?

- dash is my tiny precious child and he must be protected at all costs

- i can’t decide how i feel about arthur and agatha yet but i’m intrigued

- they’re obviously setting up something between lara and dash, i can’t be the only one seeing this coming… right? i fully acknowledge that i’m shipper trash and i’ve made my peace with that

- i’m liking the friendship between lara and akeela, give me more!

- the pacing is very good so far, they did a good job at introducing the world and showing where things could go without giving away too much- the futuristic scifi techy stuff is the way to my heart, it’s like fringe meets almost human meets person of interest and i’m so here for itSolid pilot for sure and I’ll definitely be watching… but don’t fuck it up Fox.                       

So as I said with my commissions post I am going through a real hard time right now with my job being unable to give me work, and me having gone through surgery. So i shall be doing something in which I normally save for conventions and that is selling pins. This is only a temporary sale but I shall be selling the above pins in which you can put on your bags, your hats anything. 

For the above set it is $20 Shipping to the states: +$3

I’m also open to custom pins if you aren't’ interested in the ones above, please message me if you’re interested and and if you’re interested I also do commissions as seen here. Thank any of you that can help. 

Sugaring From Home 101

I get this question a lot and I feel like a lot of girls are afraid of their parents finding out. Personally me and my parents aren’t that close so I don’t necessarily feel weird keeping things from them. I live with my mom and I love her and if anything ever happened to her I’d be distraught. However she’s really annoying for lack of a better word so I learned as a teenager to not tell her certain things just for everyone’s sake. So basically I feel like sugaring from home works for me because I don’t really care and sometimes not giving a fuck is the best way to get away with something. 

However if you’re a little more thoughtful than me here are some tips. Disclaimer: I’m not encouraging you to lie to your parents.

1. Get a vanilla job.

Vanilla jobs are great especially if you can work somewhere like a business/office setting because businesses often have big projects, bonuses, dinners. It really helps to work as an excuse for you going out for dinners, coming home late, having extra money. When I was a business major I got a lot of jobs in theses big office buildings and it was great because I always had an excuse and I was always surrounded by men in suits. Vanilla jobs are also good because they give you something to fall back on if you’re having a dry sugaring season or if something abruptly happens in your relationship. Not to mention you probably don’t want to be a SB forever and at some point you need a career to fall back on and it’s never too early to start making connects and learning.

2. Don’t be awkward. 

Seriously. If your mom or dad asks you about a purchase like a bag for example don’t be awkward and nervous and make something up ridiculous. Be calm because if you’re calm it gives them no reason to worry. Say it was on sale. Say a friend gave it to you because she didn’t want it. Say you put it on a store card. Don’t be awkward. 

3. Don’t be stupid.

Get a safe and hide the safe. Don’t leave your allowance lying around your room for someone to stumble upon. 

4. Say you volunteered for something at school.

If you’re in college say that you’re part of student government and you have a meeting. Say you’re part of greek life and have a event. It’s important that you actually do join some of these things so that on occasion you can bring home things from meeting/events. Or even just have the club shirt so it doesn’t scream bullshit. 

5. Don’t stress

I credit all my success to this. If you try to hard you overthink and you fuck yourself over. Don’t make it your life goal to hide everything from your parents because if you’re old enough to sugar that means you’re an adult and you’re old enough to have your own life and handle your business however you see fit respectfully of course 

Side note: Everything is not for everyone. Sugaring from home might not be for you. And thats okay.

wow sorry i haven’t been here in a long while,
i just wanna tell you that i’m not dead which is
a good thing i hope.

i’m still looking for jobs and a few days ago i
had a psych eval that was set up with disability
in the process of possibly getting disability if
there is sufficiently enough wrong with me.

or whatever.

however the problem still stands that i have no
source of income and i rely on donations and what
small amount my dad gives me from time to time. 

i’m coming up to have to pay rent soon and i’m
literally below 150 USD in cash in my account and
so i’m going to be in a pickle since rent  + internet +
 electricity is over 270 USD
which is something i
don’t have.

if you guys could either send a donation to my new
US paypal email at megatronofficial@hotmail.com
or simply reblog this it would do me a great help until
i can secure a job or get disability. 

Somebody not Something

I’m a highly qualified 1st AD, and I have stories out the ass of having to remind male crew members on set that I am in charge. The first story that comes to mind though was one of my recent gigs. I was shooting with A&E in Florida. At lunch, the director told me that he wasn’t going to give me the job until someone sent him my picture. He went on to say he didn’t care how I AD, as long as there’s something pretty to look at on set. He called me “something pretty.” He called me a “Something.”

Thursday-June 11th/2015

An exciting day today with our first teaser of “Zootopia” being released! I really like the first look, it does a great job of setting the tone of the movie, gives us a glimpse of the characters and doesn’t give away any plot:)

Today I had my mid-show feedback with our Animation Directors Renato Dos Anjos and Tony Smeed. This is something unique to Disney Animation, where the leadership will meet with every animator halfway through the movie, review their work and give you feedback. These guys are the BEST, although I still tend to get nervous and awkward as shown above.

All in all, it was a positive meeting and they gave me some great constructive things to work towards. One of the major points was to simplify my ideas in my shots. For instance, I tend to over-complicate the scene and move characters around just for the sake of moving them. Focusing more on the story points and what’s driving the idea and motion, along with working to support the sequence in continuity is something I’ll be focusing on in the future.

I love that our department goes out of their way to give feedback, we all have things we can work on and it keeps us growing as a team!

Jurassic World tomorrow!!! So excited!!!!!

you know what always gets me? in the stork job when parker and the mark are on the balcony at the party and they show the skyline behind her…its the wrong fucking skyline

not to be eliot or anything but its a very distinctive skyline and if the episode is set in belgrade, serbia dont use florence, italy as the cityscape pick something more generic
