15 Things. Go.

Well, I just accepted a 30 day challenge for the next 30 days or posts Here’s my 15 things.

1. I watch a lot of Cartoon Network. Well, just cartoons in general.  Anime does not count as cartoons, by the way.

2. Just so you know, I do like anime. A LOT. I’ve watched DBZ, Inuyasha, Trinity Blood, Blood+, Fullmetal Alchemist, Fooly Cooly, a bit of Ouran Host Club, Naruto… and the list goes on! I used to like Pokemon before too many series started to become apparent.

3. Over the summer I tend to go crazy with things, especially video games. I once played 12 hours straight on summer (aside from dinner). Want to know when I stopped? About 6AM.

4. Know what? I used to think the game Kingdom Hearts was stupid. Why? Disney characters. By then the sequel Chain of Memories was on Gameboy Advance and then when seeing someone progress through the game I saw someone from the Final Fantasy series. Total WTF moment.

5. My tools of the trade when drawing are Sakura Micron Pens or Sharpie pens. Remember my Adventure Time post?

6. My favorite creatures of fantasy are angels, dragons, phoenixes, imps, vampires, hmmm, let me think… how about androids and warmechs?

7. I don’t think Disney was as good as it was before. Only a handful of movies that it makes nowadays are worth the treat, visual or otherwise. Alice in Wonderland and The Princess and the Frog are notable examples.

8. My favorite pieces in chess are the queen and the rook.

9. I’m not a big checkers fan.

10. I bet I’ve had weirder dreams than you, the reader. They’re dreams so odd that not even Alice in Wonderland’s colors are trippy enough as the concept of my subconscious. No, don’t wish to have weird dreams. They’ll keep you up at night.

11. You say Jersey Shore I say Looney Tunes and Family Guy. You say Call of Duty, I say Final Fantasy and Super Mario.

12. My favorite genres to write of are sci-fi, fantasy, and supernatural.

13. I like animated films more than real films. They get better ratings.

14. My favorite animated film that is not from Disney, Pixar, or even Dreamworks is Coraline. It’s also the creepiest animated film I have seen. Button eyes, much?

15. I love life, friends, and family, and mostly everything. I’m as easygoing as can be. I’m very eccentric at heart as you will see in the next 29 days.

Write or Die (not really)

There’s bugs outside, some inside, some venomous, some not. Some with eight legs, some with wings, and some that move so fast across your floor. That’s the gist of summer aside from hot temps and the too-sought swimming pool.

Oh, and there’s Write or Die. Write or Die is a website to help you improve your writing speed; you can set your word count but there is a given option of time given to do that word count and the difficulty. The higher the difficulty, the more repercussions there will be. On Easy mode, it just tells you through a pop-up that you still must write. Normal, it plays some annoying sounds from the Peanut Butter Jelly Time to demonic baby noises. On Kamikaze Mode… oh, you don’t want to know….

I use this because I’ve been wanting for two years now to write Four, my novella for fun, with a “too-good-to-be-true” concept. I haven’t been doing that good for the past two chapters, and I’m only 25 percent throught chapter 3.

Yeah, I need to keep up the pace.

And I’m stressing. So I guess I’ll go play computer chess.

Lois in Wonderland

“Alice at last. You were as dimwitted the first time you came bere before; I believe you called it Wonderland as I recall.”

Who’d be able to dream of talking, anthropomorphic creatures along with some bloody big headed queen who controls their world? Lois Griffin probably would. She did at one point have a dream where she tried drowning Stewie, so why not a dream of some world with trippy color?

Lois – in my opinion – would probably be dressed quite sexier than Alice in her dream, and what of her other family members? What would they contribute to the storyline? Peter probably would be the March Hare or the Hatter – both being absolutely crazy and having no control of the zany things they do. Chris would be (with use of CGI) the Tweedle Twins, both very dimwitted. And her son, her youngest son?

Down With The Bloody Football Head! Art (c) by Shigune Matsui

Yep, the Bloody Big Head Red Queen. I figured that since Stewie likes to cross dress, was royalty in his past life also, and in specials such as the parodied renditions of Family Guy’s Star Wars was a villain, I made him the Red Queen. I did this concept since 2010 for the same reason, however I wanted to elaborate more on it.

He still keeps the heart lips that Red Queen does, the heart hairstyle, but the dress is a little different. He keeps Meg as his warm, fat pot bellied pig like in 2010 movie. Meg doesn’t get much glory in the series, and any glory is pried away by the Jaws of Humiliation.

She may have smashing good looks at age 40, but can she defeat the Bloody Football Head and “her” forces?

DeviantART is a sort of claymore….

 

I’ve been though DeviantART, looking at pictures and sketch dumps in order to inspire me, should creative block come to feast on my mind. It’s a creativity paradise: digital art that is spotlighted every week, traditional artists (me being one) with pretty good sketch dumps in pen and ink, and many more.

However, DeviantART does have its double edged sword properties. There have been people who trace and get over 1,000,000 pageviews, people who get pageviews by usings “bots”, and people who don’t use much creativity when they know they have enough to do a picture, etc.

I’ve come across users who make OCs, original characters by making actual, established characters, then changing their hairstyle and clothes with the paint brush function, usually in MS Paint. Ever seen a black haired Sonic the Hedgehog or a Blue Sandy Cheeks?

So that’s why I left. And I’m not posting anymore sketch dumps. They’re all going here.

Adventure Time! sketches drawn by me.

Yes, I enjoy sketching out cartoons and anime and also video games. If you want a request, just tell me in the comment box below and I’ll get to you right away.

Daily Post #135 and My Movie Picks

What is the film that I have watched the most? Well, I have no absolute answer, so to make it more interesting, I will count down my top movie that I’ve watched for the 2011 year, thus far.

1. Alice in Wonderland (2010)- I’ve been wanting to watch this movie for over a year, I’ve actually drawn some creatures of my own just as homage to this visual treat.

Yay- As I said, it’s a visual treat for the family, being that everything is live action/animated and in stunning CGI (I especially liked seeing Marmoreal). The Red Queen and her tantrums beginning with the words “Off with his/her/their head(s)!” was one of my fave moments.

Nay- It didn’t have the same charm as it did in the original Lewis Carroll books. The Queen of Hearts and the Red Queen are all one person (only the Queen of Hearts sentenced people’s beheadings, not the Red Queen), which makes it a bit confusing for fans of the original Disney movie. I also did not like how they changed Mallymkin, the Dormouse’s gender. In the books and the original movie, the Dormouse was a male, but Mally was changed to be a female.

Also, the Jabberwocky vs Alice fight irked me… a bit. It was awesome seeing the Jabberwocky spewing electric flame (which earlier on killed one of the White Queen’s knights who onwed the Vorpal Sword). However, seeing how Alice killed the Jabberwocky and The Red Queen’s troops rising up against her is like a cliche “Slay the Dragon, Save the Town” kind of concept. Oh, and where’s the White King?

We all know the Red King was decapped by the Red Queen (because the king wanted to leave her for her pure sister).

Final Verdict- 4/5: Putting aside the small changes that Tim Burton put in his film, the film has its funny moments, serious moments, and moments that will bring the family together. Every chance that I get, I always watch this film, especially the part where Alice undergoes the name “Um” (from Umbradge) and how she is instantly liked by the Red Queen.

I suggest watching this if you are one of those aesthetic conscious people.
