Leia is the girl to the left and she is a highly praised luminary. Before she embark on her yearly pilgrimage, she’s must chose among the handpicked army of crusaders to accompany her. In the end, she choose Christopher, the bottom-of-the-barrel warrior she befriended last year and she wouldn’t have it any other way.

Sorry if someone asked this before: On some of your recent works (i.e. Broken Toy arc, Before You Know It arc, etc.) I noticed a lots of blues and purples were being used. Does the color palettes mostly reflect the environment/mood? Do you find cooler colors easier to work with than warmer?

Yeah! The color palettes are largely indicative of the mood. They’re somewhat arbitrary in instances, too, but I pick them hugely based upon what colors “feel” correct to me at the time. But also, working in monochromatic palettes is a lot easier when you have to pump out dozens of rendered images in 3 days. I can do a full painting from start to finish in like 15-20 minutes, but that’s still many hours of work when there are dozens and dozens of paintings. So it was both a matter of mood, and of convenience.

Sometimes I’d spend longer rendering pieces, though, because that, too, added something to the atmosphere or achieved something I was going for. For instance, in Broken Toy Part 3 (Beleth Goes to School), I spent extra effort on the colored sections so they were nice and clean and rendered and in stark contrast to the ink sections. I wanted the environment to feel very “real” so that the dream sequence felt very surreal, in turn.


My curiosity peaked enough for me to watch The Cat Returns for the first time a few days ago…shocker! 

Another shocker! I liked it despite how short the movie was (about 70…or 80 mins). Whimsical and funny…It felt like the crew put alot of effort for that time span, with a few holes here and there. And to commemorate this lovely experience, I present to you fanart! :D

“Playing with Dolls” Senior Thesis Film

My name is Keia and I’m a digital film student at the Art Institute of Dallas. I’m at the point now where two groups of film students must work together to create their Senior Thesis Film project.

Our short film, “Playing with Dolls” is about a lonely woman luring victims into her house to create the perfect family.

Making a film isn’t cheap however. Part of the challenge is that we need to raise funds to support our expenses. Our goal is to reach $6,000 and so far, we’re currently sitting on over $300.

We’re not asking for much, just $20 alone is enough feed a couple of our cast and crew members for a day.

It would really help us out if you did just as much as sharing this to everyone you know. Also check out our awesome rewards for all of our sponsors.
