or drawn #TheHurtIsReal
I find the idea of sending animation overseas pretty.. ehh
so naw, doing my thesis is moreso showing me what I’m capable of in a short amount of time, and the people I can trust to be colorists for me in future hahaha
hey so life is expensive and so I’m reopening commissions! I will pretty much draw anything except for excessively violent or 18+ subjects.
prices are per character, and if you’re interested, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org!! paypal only!
As a policy I won’t start until I receive full payment, and because of my workload I’m only opening 7 slots. You can do whatever you want with the finished image (use as an icon, printing it, etc.) but I still retain the rights to the image, so no commercial use.
Feel free to email me with any inquiries! Thanks!
SO! if all goes according to plan, in a number of weeks I will be in dire need of colorists for my thesis film! My film has a large amount of scenes, short in length but they are DEFINITELY going to take up all my time just to ink alone, so I will be needing an army of colorists willing to help me finish my film on time!
Now I am trusting people I know well first, before spreading it out to anyone new who is looking for an opportunity to get their names in the credits, so if you know me and think you’d be free enough to do some coloring for me, definitely hit me up!
To anyone new, coloring is not a difficult task, But it is very important. I will be giving all the colors and instructions when I hand out the scenes, but I’d appreciate if you gave a brief description of yourself and your experiences in art so that I can feel comfortable enough trusting you with any scenes, along with a link to your artblog/portfolio.
I will most likely not choose every single person who asks to be a colorist, I will be treating it like a job, looking at portfolios and choosing people I feel I can trust!
Your name will go in the credits of the film if you assist!
as well as a personalized message and sketch from me that I’ll mail out! <3
to contact me about being a colorist email at
or send me a fanmail ask here!
Also having a dropbox account is ESSENTIAL!
REBLOG since I’m still in need of willing colorists! I still will be having a good batch of scenes for coloring, so if you will be able to do some coloring in March, let me know!!
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.
