A lot of people have messaged me about the 30 Day Challenge list. I hadn’t realized the link on my old post was down, so I’m reposting it now, as well as letting you all know for the next 8 weeks I’ll be posting every Monday with animated illustrations. Hopefully I can brighten up your otherwise dry work week Monday!

UPDATE: Sorry I fixed the list. There was bunch of dummy text in there. It’s all good now

Hi guys! Sachin Teng did this fabulous 30 day challenge and it motivated me to try my hand at it as well. (and if I made it through the Daily Draw February, this should work too!)

So here is to motivation and new work! *cheers!*
Also if you somehow don’t know who Sachin Teng is, go see THIS AMAZING PERSONA AND THEIR WORK right now. :D

Social observation project!
Ended up as an animation.

Some proof that I was indeed working these days. :P

Though I wish I had the time to practice animating stuff that I feel like actually matters.

R.I.P and thank you for the masterpieces you left behind.

As an aspiring animator, I greatly look up to masters of the medium. Satoshi Kon is unmistakably high on the list. Such imaginative worlds, rich storytelling that leaves you breathless, beautiful animation and characters with so much diversity and charisma.

There are no words that can describe the respect I hold for you.

Oscar nominees Best Animated Feature 2014

Earlier today this article was brought to my attention, in which it becomes clear that some of the Academy voters have little to no respect for the animation industry. They openly admit not having watched the nominated films and/or claiming that animated films are for kids, so they didn’t vote. Even the ones shown in the article that did vote barely motivated their choice.

I find this extremely disrespectful of the animators who poured their heart and soul into making these movies, only to have their work be pushed aside without a second glance by the judges of one of the most prominent and well known film awards out there. As an aspiring animator, I am deeply insulted.

Please note that in this post I am expressing no opinion on whether Frozen should have won or not. I think it’s a wonderful film, just as all the other nominees. I am simply saying that we deserve better.

What they did is disrespectful to the creators of every single one of these films, even Frozen. By barely motivating their choice, they make it look like they voted for Frozen simply because of Disney’s status in the industry. Because it’s Disney, and it made a lot of money, so it had to be at least somewhat good. To me it seems like some of the voters just defaulted to voting for the Disney film, and nobody likes to win by default.

Don’t get me wrong, I too have been guilty of loving Disney simply because it’s Disney, but there is so much more beautiful animation out there and it deserves to be taken into consideration. And if Frozen won, it should have won because the majority of the voters thought it was the best film, not because part of the voters was too lazy to even watch the nominated films.

Just got my package from Tokyo Otaku Mode. Those official Rebuild of Eva notebooks are looking gorgeous. *fangirl screams* They are definitely the real thing, there is the whole “Nerv/serious bussiness” vibe to them on the inside too.Inner otaku is pleased.

Took some awkward selfies for reference for alter ego characters taking their selfies. Mindception.And practicing sketching Aaron for a change. Still figuring out his proportions and stuff.This is one of the rare moments with Lora being casual. Just look at that gorgeous pose (not to mention the sexy reference photo used).
