Pixars 22 Rules of Story Telling
9 is worth the price of admission, holy crap.
This is genius. So many great writing tips!
And this is why Pixar is a master in their field.
Why do I feel so weird reblogging this… this is the weekend dammit! Anyway, great advice.
Pixar you have no idea how much this actually helps me.
Some awesome leg tutorials done by n3m0s1s.
Because legs are the hardest thing to draw for me. Seriously, I’ll have a character with an awesome upper torso, then spaghetti legs.
Good tips on drawing legs and feet.
FINALLY I see so many tutorials for hands, faces and other parts of human anatomy posted on here, but never legs- and the one thing I find consistently challenging is knees and their surrounding area. I have been waiting for this post for SO LONG
Wonder Woman vol. 2 #210
#this is THE most important moment in comics to me #this is THE defining moment of diana #not only of wonder woman #but of d i a n a #there is NO hesitation #there is no mourning #there is no fear #there is what is right #there is what needs to be done #and there is a HERO who bears the pains #for the human race so they wont have to #diana will sacrifice EVERYTHING #and she wont hesitate to do it #y’all can fucking keep batman #but i’ll stay with diana any day
WAIT, THIS DOESN’T SHOW JUST HOW AWESOME DIANA IS.
This is from ruckawriter's run on WW (the best ever, imho). Medusa turns one of Diana's employees into stone (Diana is a full-on ambassador as well as superhero) and then challenges Diana to a fight. Diana is skeptical, but Aphrodite pretty much says, “Listen, we're not gonna take this shit from Medusa, you gotta fight her.” So Diana shows up pretty ready, blindfold, armor, all that. But it turns out Medusa has manipulated the event to be televised, so that after she defeats Diana, she can look into the screen and turn all the people watching into stone.
Just TAKE THIS SHIT IN FOR A HOT SECOND (all images courtesy of scans_daily)
Then the stuff above happens. YES, BITCHES, DIANA—WHO HAS RECENTLY HAD A SWORD RUN THROUGH ONE OF HER KIDNEYS— TAKES ONE OF THE SNAKES SHE CUT OFF MEDUSA’S HEAD WHILE BLINDFOLDED AND SQUIRTS THE POISON IN HER EYES SO SHE IS BLIND SO MEDUSA CAN’T FUCK WITH HER.
Why? BECAUSE SAVING AND AVENGING EVEN ONE MORTAL LIFE IS WORTH HER OWN GODDAMN VISION THAT’S WHY.
But after that badass “Never?” THIS PHOTO SET LEAVES OUT THE BEST PART. WONDER WOMAN IMMEDIATELY CHOPS OFF MEDUSA’S HEAD. NO HESITATION. NO NEGOTIATION. NO DESTROYING A WHOLE CITY JUST TO BEAT HER UP A LITTLE MORE. CHOP AND DONE.
DROP THAT MIC, DI.
DROP IT LIKE THE MAGMA-HOT SHIT THAT IT IS.
To Rucka’s credit, this wasn’t no false-ass sacrifice, either. She stays blind AND STILL SAVES EVERYONE’S ASSES.
How does she get her sight back? She does something for Athena and Athena grants her one boon. So what does our Diana do? Ask for her sight back?
NOPE. SHE ASKS FOR LIFE TO BE RETURNED TO A CHILD KILLED BY MEDUSA.
And Athena was like, “Shit, Wonder Woman, you’re better than all of us, I guess you can have your sight back, too.” And Diana’s pretty much like, “Fine, that’s cool I guess, I was still getting shit done without it.”
THIS IS WHY I HAVE A LOT OF GODDAMN FEELINGS ABOUT WONDER WOMAN.
A character who does the right thing because it’s the right thing to do? Yeah, I can see how DC/Warner would find that tricky.
Reading the the remarks attributed to David Goyer in this post on the Mary Sue (http://ipad.themarysue.com/themarysue/#!/entry/man-of-steel-sequel-writer-david-goyer-calls-marvels-shehulk,537cd075e56d0bb8535f2e2f) recalls to mind a bizarre meeting I attended in the editorial offices at DC back…
FLAMES! ON THE SIDE OF MY FACE!
We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to bring you David Goyer making the list of People Who Are Dead To Me.
Like I need another reason not to see your shitty Superman movie.(via jenniferwaltersesq)
My first fan animation of Wayforward’s little dancing Genie was so well received that I decided to try animating her again. Shantae is a really fun character and I can’t wait to play her new game!
After seeing WayForward’s new amazingly cute design of Shantae for their successfully Kickstarted game, Shantae: Half Genie Hero, I was compelled to do an animation of her. She is so adorable! I tried my best to do her justice.
My wife is a huge fan of Alex Ahad`s fantastic character designs with Stanley Whitefin being her favorite. So I decided to do an unofficial animation for her of Stanley firing “something akin to Iron Man’s Proton Cannon” as indicated on Labzero’s character concept page. In keeping with the science shark motif, I designed this particular cannon to be powered by vicious genetically engineered electric eels. This is my first post on Tumblr so I hope someone finds my animation amusing.
