of course i can handle animals

hexvia  asked:

Hey I was wondering, been following you for a long while now and just thought of asking- As a storyboarder do you think It's okay not to do animation? as long as you do good boards you're okay? because I really don't want to do a whole program on animation and want to try for animation concept art. and also any tips on how you get to be a storyboard artist in general. I'm sorry this is out of the blue! (im taking a boarding class rn btw)

When I look for board artists to hire it’s always a plus (A BIG BIG PLUS) if I find out they can animate. If you’re boarding for TV overseas studios will be literally tracing your boards as animation keys. You don’t have to be Milt Kahl but you should have a basic knowledge of animation. I mean, that is… The field you want to get into after all haha. 

As for how to be a board artist… Make boards! Find scripts online or write your own and board them. Study films and TV and how they handle the camera. Make comics! And, of course, always put your work online so people can find you.

hey! i think ur art is p cool c: any tips for using ps?

thank you! here are some super quick things people may not know going in:

  • smart objects
  • masks
    • clipping masks
    • layer masks
  • adjustment layers
  • liquify, general fliters
  • blending effects
    • for layers
    • for brushes
  • grids, guides
  • history/save states/snapshots
  • importing brushes
  • workspaces
  • dark magic
    • quick exporting
    • what a contact sheet is
    • batching, scripts.

this will all be in PhotoshopCC. This is the more technical side of Photoshop instead of the fun drawing side, because let’s face it you’ll already learn that in time. This is stuff to make drawing digitally or editing or whatever easier, faster, and less trouble. These are shortcuts and smart things basically.


smart objects!

touching up? use smart objects!! please!! When you size them down they still maintain the data of the original, so you can scale and re-arrange without data lost (you can’t draw on this layer as a smart object though!). do this please. to undo this look for “rasterize layer”

this also means filters are clipped onto the layer but aren’t actually changing the layer. You can then turn them off, delete them, ect. without any repercussions. Smart objects will be more data but they are safe bets.

you won’t see this for drawing and painting but when you’re editing your drawings for maybe a poster or compiling them this is super useful!

I feel like Bioware should sit down their animation team and have them watch Naughty Dog games like a movie and take notes.... I love Bioware, but they're art direction needs work.

I posted it before, but I highly recommend watching this video about animating Conversation Systems in games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age. In it, the series Extra Credits specifically compares it to Naughty Dog and talk about how it’s a lot like comparing apples to oranges.

“Through a combination of extensive performance capture and hand-keyed animation, [Naughty Dog’s] team custom-animates not only every single cutscene, but a lot of performance moments that happen in gameplay. Every physical action, every facial expression, all the lip sync for every character speaking every line - it’s an immense amount of work and they do an incredible job of it. But this approach isn’t really feasible for most games and it definitely isn’t feasible for a Bioware game. See, Naughty Dog’s approach works for them because a game like Uncharted is only 8 to 12 hours long and has an almost entirely linear pre-determined story with a fairly small cast of characters. No matter what happens in-game, those cutscenes are going to play out the same almost every time, meaning that the animation team really only has to tackle around 3 hours of cinematics and maybe six more hours worth of interactive gameplay story sequences. The reason they can animate every scene to such a high level of quality is specifically because they’ve kept such tight limitations on quantity. And make no mistake, off the ring even that many hours of bespoke cutscene animation to that level of polish is a huge undertaking, requiring a bunch of highly-skilled performers and a much larger than average animation team. Meanwhile Bioware is a studio known for RPGs, games with tens of thousands of lines of dialogue, spoken by hundreds of different characters. Games in which the player can make choices that alter the course of conversations and impact the larger story. Where Naughty Dog has to handle maybe 8-ish hours of animation conversation, Bioware’s team has to tackle something closer to 40 hours.

I recommend watching the full video. It not only goes into how a Conversation System works in order to address the animation needs of a story-fluid RPG, but also makes some educated guesses as to why the animations in Andromeda failed to meet their mark. 

Also, while the animation in Andromeda was lacking, I thought the work done in Inquisition was really good, with facial animations that often had a level of subtlety that impressed me. 

So no, I can’t say I agree with you. Andromeda’s animation problems were a mess, but watching Naughty Dog games play like a movie wouldn’t do anything to address the issue.

Hello!! You said you wanted to write about Carlos and I want to read about Carlos so maybe I could prompt something like Carlos feeling out of place, wether its in auradon or the isle, and the rest if the vk helps him with it and stuff? And they're just really good friends?? You could add jaylos if you wanted to or something

Thanks for the prompt, I love everything regarding Carlos so this is right up my ally!

I’ve also been looking for some Carlos/Mal things because I think her dominance and his sweeter nature work well together. So this focuses on them a lot. This was also inspired by Simon Says by Inthemadhouse (aka, same person who writes Detours).

Enjoy!


Simple tests, Fairy Godmother had said, just to…see where you are academically!

Which was bullshit, Carlos knew. He just sat in a room with some dude in a beige jacket who asked him normal questions. Nothing about science or math or even studying. Like he just wanted to see how Carlos interacted with another human being.

“It was that bad, huh?” Mal asks from her bed. He had come straight to her room after meeting with Dr. Doppler because…that’s what they always did. He always went to Mal, just like Evie and Jay did.

“How can you tell?”

“I can hear your pouting from over here,” she still doesn’t look up from her book, though Carlos knows she’s not reading. Mal is trying to pretend her attention isn’t on him. Her eyes aren’t moving from the one spot on the page, but Carlos appreciates the gesture. “What did they do?”

“He asked me about school a little bit, then tourney. Other extra curriculars. The Isle. Dude.” The dog perks up at his name and Carlos scratches behind his ears. He settles against the chair at Evie’s desk where he has laid out his own notebook.

“What makes that bad?”

“They were hiding something.”

“What were they hiding?” Mal’s voice is entirely uninterested but she continues when Carlos doesn’t answer. “If you didn’t know, you would be freaking out. You have some sort of clue to what they’re trying to hide.”

This is why Mal is in charge. She’s logical and upfront, she does not pretend to be dumb and she asks straight-forward questions.

Still, Carlos fiddles with Dude’s collar before answering. “They think I have something called autism.”

Mal snickers and doesn’t bother hiding it. “Duh. I could have told you that.”

“You know what it is?”

“Yes, and I know you do too.”

Carlos shakes his head. “That was not my point. How do you know what it is?”

“You’re clearly abnormal, even for Isle standards,” she says as a fact, not an insult. Mal shuffles under his bed before tossing a book at Carlos. “I wanted to know why.”

Something twinges in his chest, the same way when Dude licked him for the first time or when Evie asks to hold his hand.

The book is a paperback, the title has something to do with disorders, but Carlos flips to the page that is marked. Words like repetitive behaviors and social impairment are highlighted in purple (of course), along with an entire paragraph discussing the benefits of interacting with animals.

“I’m the leader, I take charge for the group.” Mal explains even though he doesn’t ask. “If you’re different, I need to know what I need to do to work with that.”

“You mean you need to know how to compensate for what I am incapable of doing.”

“Not what I said,” Mal snaps because she knows he can handle her frustration. “When I made you throw that howler at your house, you ran away with Evie, the night you put the whole in the barrier. At first, I thought it was because maybe you had a crush on her, but it was because you were overstimulated, right?”  She glances at him from the corner of her eye. “Too much noise, too many people, you had to leave.”

Carlos nods.

“I need to know shit like that in case it happens again. I need to know to get you out of the commotion so you can chill.”

“I can handle myself.”

Mal snickers again. “No kidding. You survived Cruella de Vil, you could survive the end of the world. But you don’t have to do it on your own. Even if you could.”

His chest twinges again. “I was always paranoid,” Carlos admits, running his hands through Dude’s fur, “that I was crazy like her. I thought I would lose my mind as I got older and thought everything I did were just early signs.” He smiles. “But I’m not crazy. I am…autistic.” The word still feels weird on his tongue, but he should probably get use to it.

“No one ever thought you were crazy. At least, I didn’t.”

“Just abnormal?”

Mal laughs. “Yeah, just abnormal.”

“They want me to take different classes. Advanced classes.”

“We both know you will succeed in them. They’re probably better for you too.”

Carlos hesitates before pushing himself out of Evie’s chair, moving toward Mal’s bed. He sits on the edge, not touching Mal, but he could if he reached out for her. “I’ll be separated from you guys.”

She nods. “You will survive that too.”

Which is true, Carlos made it through the Isle on his own for fourteen years before meeting Evie and becoming friends with Mal and Jay. He will make it through some hour-long classes without them.

A movement catches his eye. Mal has placed her hand, palm up, toward him. Carlos accepts the gesture, places his own in it, but does not lock their fingers.

“You’re still Carlos,” she murmurs, thumb stroking the back of his hand. “Not Autistic Carlos, not Carlos in Special Classes, not Abnormal Carlos. Just Carlos. Our Carlos. 

It’s some sort of special privilege to be Mal’s, to belong to her just as much as he does to Evie and Jay. Maybe it doesn’t mean anything in Auradon, but it means something to him.

“This doesn’t change anything.” Mal squeezes his hand lightly. “Whatever comes, whatever they say, we’ll deal with it together.” And Carlos knows that’s the truth because Mal doesn’t bullshit like Fairy Godmother and psychologists. She is genuine.

And that’s all he really needs right now.


So this is the first time I really tried to write Carlos with some autistic tendencies and I think it came out well, but if anyone disagrees, please tell me.

I really wish we were able to see more of the friendship between he and Mal or even he and Evie. Platonic heterosexual relationships melt my heart.

I hope you enjoyed this and I encourage everyone to send me more prompts!

Girl Survives Wolf Attack (Caught on Camera) - my ‘pet’ wolf tried to kill me

Could you remain this calm? If not - DO NOT GET A WOLF OR WOLFDOG OR INVOLVE YOURSELVES WITH THEM IN ANY WAY.

Wolves and wolfdogs will challenge you. Unless you can remain as calm as I do in this video you will be killed or seriously injured. Ask yourself honestly if you can show no fear and stay calm through this attack. If the answer is no— then wolves and wolfdogs are not for you.

This is reality. This is an educational video. This is not meant to demonize wolves. I have no fear of Lorne and we were playing again by the end of the night– no hard feelings. This is a wild animal. An apex predator. Remain calm, balanced and show no fear– or you are putting your life at risk.
Lorne was stung by a fire ant and re-directed his aggression at me.

He grabbed me by my skull, sunk his teeth into me and dragged me into a corner. He had a good grip on me and I was bleeding profusely and of course in pain. He would have certainly ended my life in a quick second had I not remained calm.

It would not have been his fault. It would not have been my fault. It was miscommunication. Can you handle understanding that? That wolves are wild animals and you cannot change their nature. Are you willing to accept them for who they are? You have to in order to live with one or you are setting yourself up for a disaster.

I love Lorne with all my heart and I repeat: There is no hard feelings and I don’t blame him. Fire ant bites hurt. Could you be this understanding and forgiving?

This video is very old now and Lorne has challenged me since and I love him all the same. Would you still love and keep him after this?

Be honest with yourself and you will know if wolves and wolfdogs are for you.
_____________________________________________

To have a wolf, you must became a wolf.
_____________________________________________

I will likely not be answering questions or commenting on this video. I may do a follow up vlog and explain the situation in detail. I am aware this video will get a lot of negative comments questioning my ability as a behaviorist and my ability to handle wolves and wolfdogs in general. I do not care. This video is important for all the reasons I stated above. Thank you again for watching.

Respect the wolf. Always.

Thank you.

Epilogue:

I will add also that it is very rare to capture something like this on film and I am putting this up for that purpose alone. Knowledge is power and videos do not lie.

This video is completely unedited and can serve to help others make decisions that are wise and help humans to help wolves better. It is a shame that the camera was knocked from my hands and that as he viciously attacked me it was knocked off at the moment the video cuts out. This is completely unedited.

But you can hear the intensity and I assure you that not many people would have gotten up and walked away from that; only to come back in the evening and play with him.

I am certainly not the only one capable of handling this situation without serious crippling injury and likely death– and you reading this may be one of the rare people who could do what I did.

But again– ask yourself– are you one of the rare few percent that could?

i could use some money, cause my cats need to be spayed and my parents have bigger things to deal with so they’ve put it off cause of the cost but i don’t think i could handle taking care of any kittens they might have. so I’m opening up commissions. honestly I don’t have set prices, just pay what you can really. of course something like a full body commission would probably be more expensive than a simple head shot, so keep that in mind. anything is appreciated though.

i CAN draw animals, but not humans, I’m sorry. but i can do both furries and ferals, and most species. i will do gore and light nsfw, but i won’t do like, fetish hentai or anything. just tell me if you’re unsure and i’ll let you know! 

be sure to specify if you want a background and what you want it to look like, and if you want detailed shading or not!

Service Dog Crash Course #2: Preparing for Puppy

I’m sure you can probably find a million and one articles online about how to prepare your home for the onslaught of a new puppy, so I’m going to keep this one brief.

Getting a service dog puppy is really not much different from getting a regular puppy. You still need the basics, and then some. Below is a shopping list of sorts for what I believe is essential before bringing your puppy home.

This is an opinion brought to you by a rancher, who knows quite a few other ranchers and dairy farms.

I recently watched a documentary called Earthlings, which gets praised on a lot in the Vegan, animal rights, and animal welfare tags.

This documentary is complete, biased, exaggerated, and twisted bullshit (At least when it comes to beef and dairy, which is what I’m talking about)

It opens on beef with branding, showing an animal being hot ironed on the face. In my state, you cannot register to brand a cow on a face. In fact, the face is the least common branding site available, as it can damage the cow’s jaw and make it difficult for her to eat. The most common branding site is the hip, rib, and shoulder, but the documentary simply says, cows are branded on their face.

Does it say why? No. Because obviously we scar our animals for fun, right? Cattle don’t have microchips like a dog. If your dog gets stolen, you can usually find it because of it’s Microchipped. Cows don’t have that. Cows are so expensive, they’re like gold, so often Ranchers brand their cattle. If a cow has a brand, she cannot be sold without the brand owner’s authorization, meaning, someone can not steal young, healthy animals from my pasture, and sell them for slaughter.

Next they go on to dehorning, stating that it is cruel, painful, and often done with simple pliers. HAaha.

If I have an animal, I don’t want to ruin it by painfully tearing off it’s horns. This animal will never let me touch it again!

Most cattle, and I DO mean most, are dehorned either as calves (Less painful, not remembered), or have a shot to numb the area at the base of the horn before it’s CUT off, not YANKED off. This way, the cow can still be handled.

Does the documentary say WHY cattle are dehorned? Does it mention that a cow with horns is a danger to itself, humans, and other animals? No? Of course not!

Beef cattle are not stuffed into trailers until it’s so full the animals die. This makes absolutely no sense. If the animals die before they reach the sale ring or slaughter house, no paycheck for you! You make less money if the animals die before slaughter.

Nothing the documentary covers is explained why. WHY do they do that? It’s biased. It makes it seem like ranchers and farmers WANT to hurt their cattle. They don’t. Most of us get attached to our cows. It exaggerates EVERYTHING

Dairy

According to the documentary, Dairy cattle are CHAINED to their stalls, in their own feces, with no water or food, pumped full of hormones to make them milk more. Wrong.

A dairy barn consists of a long isle down the middle of the barn, with a large alley on each side for the cattle. The cattle can walk down the main alley, or lay in a padded stall. They can stick their head through railings to eat food specially mixed to meet all their needs, or drink water. Dairy barns, because they produce milk that MUST be clean, cannot milk a cow pumped full or hormones and chemicals, and clean their barns daily to avoid bacteria. WOW! It’s almost like we take care of our animals so they produce! WHO KNEW?

Most dairy cattle are allowed to graze in a pasture with their calves, until they’re milked in the morning and the evening. Others keep their cows in a well airated barn. Calves are removed to avoid injury! Calves are often kept it smaller pens, with calf huts, pads, soft bedding, and even blankets! It is counter productive to not care for a calf. A calf is your future cow! Dairy farmers feed them the highest quality milk so the calves grow into strong, productive animals.

Dieing cows are not left in the isles. If a cow begins to appear sick, a vet is called. Simple as that.

The documentary states that a cow’s lifespan can reach 20. WRONG. at the age of 8 or 9, a cow starts to lose her teeth. If you kept a cow alive until 20 she would be malnourished and miserable, unable to eat. The average cow lives until 8 or 9, at which point they are sold. It would be cruel to keep an animal who cannot eat or fulfill it’s own needs.

Cows do not, on average, die at FOUR YEARS OLD because of exhaustion! Four years, at almost any dairy or ranch you visit, is a cow in her PRIME! We do not run our animals to death. We do NOT torture them.

You don’t eat meat? Great! Do your thing! Eat your veggies! That’s fine! But don’t make me out to be devilspawn if I eat meat. Don’t make me out to be cruel, (As stated by the documentary, as cruel as hitler to the jews), because I raise cattle. Fuck. You.

The shit thing about that documentary is it preys on people who have never been on a farm or dairy. If you’ve never been to one, it’s easy to believe things like this. If I made a documentary about how vegans grew their food, and showed it to people who have never met Vegans, or seen how crops are grown, I could easily exaggerate and make Veganism seem horrible, like this documentary does to livestock owners.

Please stop hating on ranchers and farmers. Please?

hi! do you have any advice for sticking with one family (not getting bored of them) and not rushing your gameplay? thanks :)

Hello :) That’s actually a pretty good question I hope I can answer. I’m the kind of person who does get bored easily while playing the sims. I think I’ve never seen a gen 4 born in my game. But with the Woods, I hope to change that and I’ll give you the advices I gave myself. 

Disclaimer: I always find it difficult to write exactly what I mean because English is not my mother tongue and some things are not that easy to translate. ahah I hope it’ll be clear enough though and sorry for making it that long. I think I lost myself a little and I diverged from the initial subject but oh well, maybe it’ll help someone! 


Don’t compare your family to other simblrs’ family. I think this is very important because I know I did & it always made me dislike my sims and want to restart everything. It’s never a good thing to compare yourself or your creations to others and your simblr is no different. Be proud of what you do because no one can do it just like you and that’s why it’s so special.

They have captions. Dee with Dipper and Mabel (x)

  1. In response to chocostarling‘s tags in (x) and I really wanted to draw her Deus! (he’s a bit rounder than Dee) <3
  2. Stan didn’t like her (because he’s tired of all this Gravity Falls weirdness affecting his family) until she showed him how cynical she can be.
  3. Being a thought demon, Void can see how hard Stanley worked to get Ford back to their dimension, so of course she disapproves of Stanford’s attitude during their discussion. 
  4. All the demon guardians have some kind of nickname. Some handle it better than others. (Sorry Dot. And Pi Mo -rick sanchez voice- I don’t give a fuuuuuuuuuck.)

Day 30 Animes You Wish Would Have a Crossover
Uta no Prince sama and Love Live

Want to join? Check out the challenge list right here

I’m pretty sure some of you are not surprised of course I love both Uta no Prince sama and Love Live and I want a crossover to happen. I’m pretty sure the Love Live goddesses can handle being around these uta princes. Plus I can see some of the characters get along in a non-romantic way. Like Camus and Eli, Otoay, Rin, and You. Masato, Maki, Kira and Riko, Nico and Nagi, I could go on forever but I’ll just stop there for now. Even a live concert with the seiyuus if fine with me too. I swear this would be like the ultimate dream crossover.

GUYS, GUYS. LITERALLY LOOK AT THIS. LEE FREAKING SUNGJONG IS TADASHI HAMADA IN DISGUISE. I KNEW IT. CAST THIS MAN FOR A LIVE ACTION MOVIE OF BIG HERO 6 IMMEDIATELY. 


SOMEONE THROW ME IN A BLENDER. I CAN NOT HANDLE THE FEELS. OF COURSE MY BIAS WOULD HAPPEN TO ONE DAY LOOK LIKE MY FAVORITE CHARACTER FROM MY FAVORITE ANIMATED MOVIE. LEE SUNGJONG GET OUT OF MY HEAD AND STOP BEING ALL OF MY WEAKNESSES.

A girl I have on facebook is one of those vegans who likes to preach about it a lot, and she’s always posting things saying ‘if you eat meat you don’t really love animals’.

I eat meat and I love animals, I spend a lot of time reading books and watching documentaries on animals, and I try to do a lot for animal charities. I’m also saving to do an animal behaviour course while I work. There’s no set standards for who qualifies as 'loving animals’ and who doesn’t but I’m 110% sure I do.

Conversely, while I won’t dispute she may love other animals in her own way, this vegan girl has a lot of pets and is notorious for not looking after them, at all. I’m talking not feeding them for days on end, unsuitable cages, overly rough handling and so on.

Even if you don’t have a particular interest in working with animals or whatever, you can still love animals even if you eat meat. And not eating meat does not mean you are suddenly incapable of mistreating animals, suggesting you don’t love them as much as you claim.

(Apologies for ranting on an individual case, but I have seen the general notion passed around a lot more recently on tumblr too)

NOT so easy on the eyes.  Visual Spoilers.

I don’t know if anyone has been glutton enough for this kind of punishment; it really kind of made my gut hurt.  But, I went through and did the best I could to cap the microseconds after the Kanan/Maul incident, and…

I’ll put this below a cut, because I know how vehemently I avoid spoilers of any kind….
