READY for LAUNCH

These are some valid points. Why in the world is Nickelodeon trying so hard to make Korra fail? Like they show re-runs of ATLAB all the time and then act if as LOK doesn’t exist until its time for a new episode. It’s so weird.

Working on filling out an expression sheet for a character. I’ve always wanted to try one of these things but I kept forgetting. Hopefully I can come up with some really great faces cause most of this sheet’s categories are pretty good.

Studio Ghibli’s latest anime film When Marnie Was There directed by 41-year-old Hiromasa Yonebayashi opened in Japan with 461 screens on July 19 and earned a very disappointing 379,000,000 yen (about US$3,734,000) with 285,200 ticket sales in its first weekend. It took third place in the weekend box office following Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction in 1st and Maleficent in 2nd. The result was only 42% of his first feature film The Secret World of Arrietty, which made about 900,000,000 yen with 680,000 tickets in its opening weekend on July 17-18, 2010, in 447 screens.

For the past couple of weeks, it has been strongly rumored that Toshio Suzuki, Ghibli’s producer and co-founder, is now seriously considering the closure of the anime production division of the internationally acclaimed studio, after the retirement of his long-time colleague Hayao Miyazaki. In the latest episode of his “Ghibli Asemamire” podcast posted on June 27 before the release of the film, he actually said that the future of Ghibli depended on the results (both box office and critics) of When Marnie Was There.

So I pre-ordered Destiny for the xbox one today and got a couple of free beta codes! The Alpha was tons of fun so in case anyone’s on the fence about this game here’s a code:

Again, this is only for the xbox one beta. Have fun out there :)

Tuesday Tips - FOLDSMore on folds today. I will eventually cover all types of folds but today is about simple folds on everyday clothes (t-shirt, jeans). The key is to know what to expect and then applying what you know to simplify what you see in front of you (when life drawing). A lot of the folds dynamics on shirts and jeans come from the “memory” of the fabric itself. Denim is thick and is likely to keep some form of wrinkles or folds around certain areas (knees). A lot of zig-zag patterns around the knee is very likely. When pushed down on the feet, the denim fabric will bunch up and combine with the zig-zag pattern. Shirts and t-shirts will react to the twist and pull of the arms and torso. Identify where the pull (or tension) is coming from and work from it. I tend to draw the seams because they clearly express the volumes underneath.Norm

Preview of “The Iron Giant” toy by Mondo.

The Iron Giant Collectible Figure
The 16″ tall figure will have over 30 points of articulation, light features, and other fun surprises! Accompanying The Iron Giant will be a Hogarth figure, scraps of metal for him to munch on and a Seafood sign that has a removable “S” to put on his chest. He will also include an interchangeable head and gun attachment, giving a choice of displaying the figure as the regular version, or the “War” version! The figure was designed from the actual CG files used in the film, for ultimate accuracy.

Ugggh I really want this!

I want that 0___0
