i will work on it in 2013

For #throwbackthursday I flipped through a few pages of an old moleskine watercolor book. Back in 2013 I was really enjoying the texture of this paper, so I made more finished works in my sketchbook than perhaps I should have.

March 26th Atlus Stream predictions

Ok I’m calling it on these games that are most likely to happen (at least this year) and these are new games (minus Persona ports or remasters, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we got a few of those):

  • P3D (they’ve had like a year+ to work on it behind the scenes and have teased it, so I wouldn’t be surprised if we got it)
  • Catherine 2 (years ago they stated the would make it a franchise, each year it’s gets more unlikely but I’d love it to happen)
  • Deviliser (back in 2013 they trademarked this name, I’m thinking it’s SMT related imo or a new ip, heck didn’t they announce an SMT game for the 3DS? It could be this)
  • Project Re Fantasy (or at least a look into it, gameplay or story wise)
  • Maaaaaybe a P5 spinoff game (be it a crossover with P3 and/or 4 or by itself, that or they’ll be waiting till 2018 to do a few of them)
  • Maybe a P5 sequel (probably a spinoff game but yeah they might have one in the works, but I’m still aiming for that to be 2018)
  • P5 expansion DLCs
  • SMT port/remaster (to 3DS or Switch, hey I said minus Persona ports/remasters)
  • Devil Survivor/DDS/Devil Summoner or another Megaten game port/remaster or sequel
  • Another P3/4 spinoff game (one that ties up, or help ties up loose plot threads and maybe sets the stage for a P3/4/5 crossover game)
  • P5 anime announced (not game but I’m waiting Altus :/)
  • P4 Arena/Q/Ultimax anime announced (C’mon Atlus do the Labyrinth trilogy please)
  • P3 The Answer movie or anime announced (still waiting Atlus)

Ok Ken (and David). As much as I hate to make you guys famous or even respond to you directly. We all die one day and you're old so fuck it. Yea yea my 2013 performance at the Grammys was absolute shit. Technical difficulties, blah blah. Thanks for the reminder. Very much appreciated. Fuck that performance though. You think that's why I kept my work out of the Grammy process this year? Don't you think I would've wanted to play the show to 'redeem' myself if I felt that way? In reality, I actually wanted to participate in honoring Prince on the show but then I figured my best tribute to that man's legacy would be to continue to be myself out here and to be successful. Winning a TV award doesn't christen me successful. It took me some time to learn that. I bought all my masters back last year in the prime of my career, that's successful. Blonde sold a million plus without a label, that's successful. I am young, black, gifted and independent.. that's my tribute. I've actually been tuning into CBS around this time of year for a while to see who gets the top honor and you know what's really not 'great TV' guys? 1989 getting album of the year over To Pimp A Butterfly. Hands down one of the most 'faulty' TV moments I've seen. Believe the people. Believe the ones who'd rather watch select performances from your program on YouTube the day after because your show puts them to sleep. Use the old gramophone to actually listen bro, I'm one of the best alive. And if you're up for a discussion about the cultural bias and general nerve damage the show you produce suffers from then I'm all for it. Have a good night.

More concept art of Aloy, the lead character of Horizon: Zero Dawn. I worked on this character together with the rest of the character team for a few months in 2013. It was a huge honor working with Guerrilla Games and their inspiring, talented team! I’m so proud of them and the beautiful game they have created.

And I loved working on this character - hair is one of my favorite things to draw, so this was the perfect job for me, haha! These concept drawings make an appearance in this featurette by Sony: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bw5JnhbG558

Go for the thing you actually want to do.  

Many students, teachers and family told me studying 2D animation in school from 2009- 2013 was foolish because there were already no more 2D animation jobs, and that I should study 3D animation. But I hate rigorous, technical work, I honestly hate computers all together. I’m not built for that kind of thinking, and I’m not interested in it. I was and am far more interested in drawing and film making than mastering technology. I’m almost four years out of school now, and have now had far better career opportunities than many of my 3D classmates because I am passionate about what I do.

My senior year of college,  I narrowed the parts of the animation process that I am most interested in to writing and storyboarding. But, I was afraid to pursue those jobs because I knew from interning in studios that they were highly coveted positions. So, I went for cleanup and animation jobs, hoping to work my way up. I even got lucky and landed character design work down the line, though I’m not particularly interested in design. It was only when i started taking storyboarding classes, making storyboards in my spare time, pursuing storyboarding jobs, calling myself a storyboard artist, that those opportunities started to become available to me. And it turns out, I’m far better at storyboarding than I was at those other positions, because it’s the thing I enjoy the most. This is not to say “don’t take that cleanup job that pays the bills.” Take that job, and do online storyboarding classes at night, and read storyboarding blogs on your lunch break, make storyboard samples and comics in your free time on nights and weekends… Then, ask for storyboard tests, and test and test and test. It might take a while, no worries. Go ahead and put ‘storyboard artist’ on your website in the meantime instead of ‘illustrator’ or 'cleanup’ or whatever your more accurate fallback job is.

Don’t work in a studio in your fallback job and wait for someone to give you the opportunity. You might think because you are hard working at your compromise job, the management will reward loyalty with the job you politely asked for, or maybe were even too polite to actually ask for. They won’t give you that job. They probably won’t even help you get that job. So test within that studio if they’ll let you, and apply other places in the meantime while you keep paying the bills with that job.

There’s no excuse to me. Even people who want to direct can direct their own animated shorts in their spare time and build up a commercial directing portfolio from those shorts. You can do the same thing making crappy live action films with borrowed equipment in your spare time. It’s costly and time consuming, but you can throw your musician friend a couple bucks for the score, get a compositor buddy to throw effects on your short in exchange for some animation she needs, and buy a bunch of friends pizza to help you clean up scenes or hold lights or whatever. I’ve done it before.

I used storyboards as an example above, (read blogs during lunch, etc.) but apply that same tenacity towards whatever you want to do: vis dev, character design, comic penciler, stop motion fabricator, 3D modeler, whatever. I want to be a writer now, that’s the next hurdle for me. I’ve written two pilots and I’m taking it seriously, going to writing events, talking to people, refining my work and writing new material, and generally conducting myself as a writer. I have no idea how long, or even if this will take, but I’m pursuing it like it’s real because I enjoy writing, so I think I’d be good at it. Please don’t be one of these people that talks about all the stuff you’re “working on”, when you are really just thinking about working on that stuff. Too many of those in the world, please just go and get things done. “There are those who write, and those who talk about writing.” An adage I like. Apply it to whatever you like “There are those who design characters, and those who talk about designing characters…”

So please, everyone, go for what you want, don’t stop short now. You’ll be a lot better at your job when you’re doing the thing you like.

*inhales deeply* SO back in 2013, I made a shitty Ace Attorney PowerPoint so my bf could have context to all the shitty AA doodles I did. I’ve dug up this relic and decided to update it with all the hip and happening characters and plot. It’s spoiler free imo, except Mia, but it’s like known by anyone who has played past case 1-1, so….

AAI slides were done primarily by @doodleblah because I never got around to playing those and she loves them. Not everyone is on here because they’re just the characters I primarily draw so sorry von Karma, Kristoph, Dahlia, Fulbright, etc

Pond - Sweep Me Off My Feet

Sweep Me Off My Feet is the first single off Pond’s new album The Weather
Out on Marathon Artists on 5th May. The video direction was done by Matt Sav.

Pond is a psychedelic rock band from Perth, Western Australia, formed in 2008. Featuring a revolving line-up, the band currently consists of Nick Allbrook, Jay Watson, Joe Ryan and Jamie Terry.

Pond often shares its members with fellow Australian psychedelic rock band Tame Impala. Jay Watson is a full member of both acts, while Pond band leader Nick Allbrook contributed to both bands from 2009 until 2013. Current Tame Impala members Kevin Parker, Cam Avery and Julien Barbagallo are all former members of Pond, with Parker continuing to work with the band as its record producer.

Lyrics

Sweep Me Off My Feet
Hey, you, I’m not bold or cool or masculine,
Maybe you’re just waiting for the perfect Latin lover to walk in,
I’m not him.
Between my penis and my chin is Camembert and shame,
I used to be elegantly thin, I’m sorry babe, we both missed that train,
Oh, no, if I follow you all your girlfriends will know,
then i’ll wind up with the other fools waiting,
wasting his time following you ‘round,
another lonely guy with longing in his eye,
but you said your man was bringing you down.

Someone sweep me off my feet,
i am not an angel, i’m barely a man,
I’m lonely but I’m here,
Baby, understand,
Someone sweep me off my feet.

I’m a bit jittery right now, as I’ve reached a milestone that is over three years in the making. On and off since late 2013, I’ve been working on an animated series pitch, with the biggest part being a 45 second intro animation produced to completion. By myself.

In the grand scheme of things it’s short, but when I think about how often I had to put it on the back burner for a plethora of other responsibilities (ones that pay) for months on end, 45 seconds seemed like an eternity. Life threw me a curveball last year, and I’ve used the time since to wallow a bit, then find my footing, and with this project, and my motivation for working on it, it’s like announcing a new beginning.

I’ll copy and paste the video description:
“Space Is The Place is an animated series concept by Kellan Stover (Stovepipe). Join Roland, Ruth, Ralph, and Laika on their journey through the galaxy, where they’ll discover the science of space, overcome cosmic conundrums, and use teamwork to further mankind’s (alien-kind & dog-kind too) understanding of the universe at large.

All design, animation, illustration, and music created by Kellan Stover. © 2017

For questions and inquiries: kellan@stovepipe.design”

There is more to come, as loads of supplementary materials, scripts, a pitch deck, and website are still needed. But for now, this first personal victory. If this seems at all like something you wish existed in full cartoon form for yourself or someone you know, or you just like me, my work, and want to help me out, please share this. The more eyes on it the better. Thank you all very much.

I decided to doodle up some of my oldest and most treasured characters, Kade (top) and Chris (bottom)!! HAH.

And after finishing these, I decided to compare them to some of my old work.
The improvement is ridiculous, so I figure I’d share it with you guys:

2012:

2013:

2014:

2015:

2016:

So to all the artists out there who feel they’re not improving, trust me you are!

Improvement happens very gradually, and you often don’t even notice until you look back on your older work. Just keep at it, and you’ll be rewarded. Art is a journey, and learning to love the journey and stop racing for the finish line is the first step to being a content artist. We’re all learning new things every day.

And as usual, never stop drawing!! <3

anonymous asked:

Are you vegan??

Part time lol.
Let me clarify: I’ve given up meat completely. Slowly giving up fish and I’ve given up dairy except for cheese, it’s so difficult but I’m working on it. I haven’t drank milk since 2013. The aim is to be on a plant based diet by the end of the year and indoctrinate it into my lifestyle by the time I become a mother.

Three SERIOUSLY UNDERRATED Movies I just watched recently:

1. Strange Magic

Originally posted by magically-strange

A work by freaking Lucasfilm/George Lucas himself!

Did not expect it to be a musical, very much cringe worthy—but once you look past that, this movie has stunningly beautiful animation! 

Not to mention the plot is actually kind of interesting. THIS coming from the same man who brought us STAR WARS and we know how well those relationships work out half of the time *cough* Anidala *cough*—but it is a movie ENTIRELY about LOVE! I kid you not. 

Though a few places are indeed very very much a cringe, other parts have me squealing like a fangirl! I wish I would have heard about it sooner!   


2. Epic

Originally posted by zombie-chaser

So I guess 2013-2014 were just the years to have stunning visual animation for forest-related characters, in movies that both basically flop in the box office.

Epic was a little slow at times, but it was funny, unique, and had a few very memorable characters! 

I will not lie to you, I am a sucker for ships, and Ronin and Queen Tara never cease to make my heart ache for a whole week after I watch this movie. T_T If you watch for nothing else, at least enjoy the beautiful visuals, A-list voice acting cast, and the FRICKING relationship between the Queen and the most badass guy in this whole movie!


3. Book of Life

Originally posted by waterinmychest

So, aside from slamming me with the crippling nostalgia of watching El Tigre on Nickelodeon as a kid, this movie is witty, gorgeous, and (again unfortunately) more of a musical than I typically look for. 

STILL! I cannot believe it took me THIS long to watch it! It was fun, exciting, and busted all sorts of chops for various people and stereotypes. 

Plus, the fandom for this movie is ridiculously awesome! Jorge R. Gutierrez is very open with the fans with his info/rumors of sequels, and the voice cast nearly killed me. Channing Tatum was one thing, but DIEGO LUNA is the main character!  We’re talking Cassian Andor with more than 5 lines of dialogue and a leading role! ❤ ❤ ❤

And let me tell you about La Muerte and Xibalba—the OTP I didn’t know existed or that I needed in my life—their personalities are so different from what I was expecting and I love everything this movie did to make me think vs what I saw. 

Plus it is produced by Guillermo Del Toro—I’ve been seeing his name so much recently—seriously, what does this guy not do!?



So those are the 3. This is just my opinions of things based on recent exposure to the films, and they aren’t the best movies I’ve ever seen by far, but they were enough to be exciting and they definitely deserve more love than they were given! —or at least more exposure so it didn’t take me this long to watch…

Want to clue for looks?

I need your help, anyone that wants to look. Because of our metas revolving around the bomb going off when given the correct date (just like in The Empty Hearse), there might be a date hidden in series 4 that would give away the plan.

For example, the code to the bomb was “051113” – the date Lord Moran wanted to set it off. November 5th, 2013. Because of the subtext, we know villains’ codes don’t work – only the code assigned to Sherlock or John will set it off.

We know this code is a play on January 29th.

The “dead for a week” reference in The Six Thatchers? Yeah. That’s the week the bomb didn’t go off. January 22nd. Sherlock was dead for a week.

Eurus has that specific launch code assigned to her, but of course she couldn’t set it off. Her holding cell id number is 18992201 – January 22nd, 1899 – five years from Holmes’ Reichenbach. This is true in both Doyle canon and BBC Sherlock.

So where is the bomb’s launch code? We saw the bomb stop at 1.29 - January 29th - but is the code given again? Could Moffat repeat himself, considering how much he loves number codes?

There should be a number assigned to either Sherlock, John, or Mrs Hudson within this series that includes “2901” and possibly a year. It could be “290117” or “290199” or a similar combination.

The game is on

Find that, then i think it’s safe to say this isn’t just coincidence.
