ok pls consider this: kingdom birbs
(can u guess who is who and what birds they are??? lmao)
Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:
1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.
First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose.
So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose. I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.
Scribble it down
start to put on features
put on more stuff
fix stuff again
erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring
Whole head is a gesture!
2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first. You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.
So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face.
That’s the simplest explanation I got. Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being “on model” last!

Genndy Tartakovsky’s “Popeye”. Get hyped.
Kudos for Genndy and his team! The animation test of Popeye looks great so far. The designs are just well done even when there’s some tweaks on Popeye and Olive designs but it’s not change to them tho i do admit they made Olive really cute.
What i like about the animation is the facial expressions, Genndy and his team did a great job with the facial expressions, shows how the characters feel and act when they are scared, happy or angry. The movements are just amazing, the way Olive screams in terror and tries to escape or hide or how Popeye tells Olive that she doesn’t have anything to worry about when the pirate goons are beating him.
Tom Kenny voicing Popeye is a good choice since Tom already have been using the Popeye voice as Mitch from PPG and Sumo from Clarence.
2016 feels along time but i know it’s worth the wait, so far i’m excited to see this movie.
Every time this post comes around, I have to explain this.
Watch Dennou Coil, the most underrated anime pretty much ever.
- Yes, this is the standard of animation throughout the series.
- AND THIS IS A FILLER EPISODE.
- It’s basically about kids with what’s essentially Google Glass: The Game. The whole world is affected by this game. Traffic lights, school, anything.
- It’s good in the beginning and gets really, really good by the end.
- Shows the vulnerabilities of children.
- Well-written children in general. They fall under some tropes but they don’t suffer from the usual fallacies of writing children into series.
- And yeah, the filler episodes are really good. The whole series is worth watching.
Reblogging as a reminder to myself
wish this show was longer.
PLEASE WATCH DENNOU COIL IT’S REALLY COOL!!!!!
This is the episode I always think of when I think about how much I love the visuals in Dennou Coil. Still an amazing show that not enough people have seen.
- Platonic reassuring shoulder/arm/hand grabbing
- Platonic tight, meaningful hugs
- Platonic late-night deep conversations that end in at least one person holding back tears or sobbing
- Platonic sleeping in the same bed
- Platonic forehead touches
- Platonic staring into each other’s eyes like the other person is the world
- Platonic CUDDLES

Long post of sketches from tonight’s stream. Felt like drawing a style guide in response to the positive response to my recent GOTG sketches. I am still developing my style, and it changes constantly, like month to month, but here are some elements that are consistent in my style. Enjoy!

Okay, this new girl is really adorable.
I sense a new ship coming. And boy oh boy, are people going to eat this up.
You deserve it, Soos.
Has everyone forgot that Soos scored a 12 on the dating quiz!!! He’s a Total Hunk!!! XD
New Pokemon 3DSes, covers up for preorder ⊟
These limited edition Pokemon 3DSes, which will be hawked exclusively through Japan’s Pokemon Centers, aren’t going to up for sale long, so you’re going to want to preorder one pronto. They’re $336.99 each at Play Asia, but take note that they’re the New 3DSes that come with suede cover plates and custom Home menu themes. You can get either the White one with Kyogre or the Black system with Groudon.
And while the non-limited-edition New 3DS systems aren’t up for preorder anymore, you can reserve one of the 38 different cover plates for the system. They’re priced at $19.99 each, which is more than I expected, but I’m probably going to buy one anyway as soon as I somehow manage to pick a favorite. New 3DS charger stands (available in Black, White, Mint, and Pink) are available to preorder too. Thanks to NintendoTweet for the links!SUPPORT TINY CARTRIDGE Join Club Tiny!
“Behold the fate of all who defy me - no, who defy the Life Fibers!”
so, it’s commentary time. and i’ll keep this brief because i’m sure that other people will add to this as time goes on. CAN I JUST GET A WRETCHED SOUND AT THE WAY KORRA LOOKS? this is right after everyone is telling her that they’ll miss her. understandable that everyone wants korra to recuperate and get back on her feet and being at home is going to make that recovery process faster (or so everyone thinks). and this goes back to what everyone has said about the world being able to keep its balance without the avatar. korra’s face just makes me do the ugly crying face because it’s what’s happening. things are being kept in the balance while she’s gone. i know that no one means that she isn’t needed, but how the hell can she think about anything else? she’s gone through amon, unalaq, vaatu, and zaheer in a matter of months, right? and then everyone’s all BON VOYAGE, BABE! with sweet sentiments of course. and you see korra wave with a smile because she wants the last thing they see to be her smile and her looking somewhat happy at going home with her parents. but she’s leaving behind her second home - her friends, her role in republic city.
and i just want to punch myself in the face because it would hurt less than seeing korra this way.
p.s. i’m sure this leads to her swiping off that hair like HONOR.
