Some Drawings

Jul. 4th, 2013 | 10:44 am

bout time I've gotten around to posting some of my drawings lately.

First off, the work in progress. I did a group drawing of Jack, Merida, Hiccup and Rapunzel hanging out and painting. I want to colour this in watercolour, but I couldn't resist inking the original sketch first to show off.

Big Four PaintingCollapse )

And next up, for Brendala, some Sly Cooper sketches. XD There's nothing quite special about these, but I really want to try sketching some random scenes from the Sly 4+5 AU we've been plotting together.

Tooth Cosplay

mood: chipperchipper

As promised, here's a photo of my flapper girl Tooth cosplay and the other Rise of the Guardians cosplayers I ran into.

Photo AheadCollapse )

With that said, Stu and I are already thinking of what cosplay to do for Hal-con 2014. (We're not going to 2013 one cause we just don't have the extra money for it this year.)

I want to do two cosplay and one of them will be my steampunk costume, however, Stu is thinking about doing a young North from the Guardians of Childhood novels. So, to go with that it has me thinking of either trying to do Bunny (novel or movie), Katherine for just do my flapper girl Tooth costume again. I think anyone of them would be good, but I wouldn't mind opinions.

Awesome Geeky Day

Jun. 28th, 2013 | 08:38 pm
mood: cheerfulcheerful

It's the first day of Animaritime and so far it's been a good start.

We actually didn't start the day by going to the con, but rather to the Strange Adventures, our local comic store because Brenda Hickey was doing doing sketches for people. For those who don't know, Brenda Hickey is one of the artists that's been doing the My Little Pony comics and in fact her Micro-series on AppleJack comes out this much.

The artist who's doing the Powerpuff Girls comics was also there and they were both super friendly. I was able to get a cute Applejack sketch from Brenda and both a Rainbow Dash pin and snagged a Twilight pin for Isa.

After that, we went to con. I had thought of doing two cosplays plays this year, Lina Inverse and a flapper girl version of Tooth from Rise of the Guardians, but I ran out of time. So, I just stuck with the Tooth cosplay. I was so relieved when people were reconiging me and that I ran into two Jack Frost and a Bunny cosplayers there. I made sure to take pictures which I promise to post later.

Our biggest event today was hearing Brad Swaile speak, who is a voice actor. He was really fun and he showed up photos of past costumes and drawings he's done. Man the guy is talented and I can't wait to see his voice actor panel tomorrow.

And that's mainly day one, will probably have more news later. ^_^

Music Video

Jun. 17th, 2013 | 12:09 pm

Stu and I are now back from the Time Traveler's Reunion and we had a great time. We would gladly do it again. I plan to post photos of our trip later.

Also, after a long while I got around to making another music video. It's basically about Jack Frost, Rapunzel, Hiccup and Merida. See, on tumblr, these four characters kind of got group together and now they're called The Big Four/Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons and it's basically it's own fandom.

The idea if basically these four characters hanging out as friend. Yeah, tumblr took four random characters and decided they would be best buds. It's a weird place like that.

Anyway, it lead me to making this.

Road Trip

mood: awakeawake

So, tomorrow Stu and I are head to the Time Traveler's Reunion in Nova Scotia. We got all of our costumes set and I promise to take a lot of photos. I'm really looking forward to it, it's the first time they're doing it. Hopefully, if it's a success they'll do it every year. ^_^

In other news, I almost got a long ROTG fic done that I've been working on for the last couple of months. Once I get that out of my system, I plan to get back working on my original steampunk novel. My goal is to get that done by the end of summer since I just have a few chapters left to go on it.

Epic Review

May. 26th, 2013 | 08:48 pm
mood: geekygeeky

Stu and I saw Epic today and I really enjoyed it.

The story did feel disjointed at points, and there are some "how this world work" questions, but it had great characters, especially for female ones. I loved the queen and wished we could have seen more of her. (She got to be badass in a ball gown, that would be fun to cosplay) Also, the characters designs were terrific, I'm so glad I got the art book for this.

I do have to disagree with people that keep comparing it to Ferngully though. I get why that's the first to come to mind since both stories involve a human getting sunk and having to help save the forest with the little people that live there. Yet, I feel that's not really a fair comparison.

However, I would argue Epic feels much more like a fantasy movie than Ferngully (like Alice in Wonerland or the Wizard of Oz). To start with, the human turning tiny is not that unusual. There have been plenty of other stories that have done it, Ant Bully is the first to come to mind, Dot and Keeto, although I doubt anyone even knows what that one is. Heck even Alice did it.

The big difference is that Ferngully was more of an environmental film (with a very cheesy in your face environmental message). You could argue Epic had one too with showing how important the forest is, but it's not shoved in you face as often as Ferngully did.

Also, one big difference is that in Ferngully the main villain was powered by toxic fumes made by humans as well as the humans were also helping destroy the forest by cutting it down.

In Epic, the villain's main power is rot which is a natural part of nature. The villain just wants to upset the balance and destroy everything. Humans aren't even involve in his evil plans, and I'm rather glad cause that would have been too cliche.

Overall, Epic is a good movie. Best movie of the year? Probably not, but a good fantasy film with a good cast of characters. I would see this again.
