Let us never speak of Brussels Sprouts again.
This is “Hikouki-gumo” (lit. Contrail) from Yumi Arai’s debut 1973 album of the same name. It will serve as the theme song to Hayao Miyazaki’s new movie, Kaze Tachinu (The Wind Rises).
Arai previously provided the theme song “Yasashisa ni Tsusumareta Nara” for Miyazaki’s 1989 release, Kiki’s Delivery Service.
So beautiful <3
Another request for Jean who wanted Sailor Superboy and Tuxedo Batgirl (Cassandra Cain). I’ve never drawn Cassandra Cain before…
Still looking for more requests! Did I mention they’re free?
AHAHAHAHAHA YEEEEES XD
Okay, this TED talk is really rubbing me the wrong way this morning, especially some of the comments. This man wanted to make a scifi film, but had no budget, so he just went around and asked all these big-name artists to do work for him (concept art, preproduction, acting,…
Real artists are still real people and real people will always have real bills to pay and real families to support.
DO NOT WANT.
I do. I want to actually see that.
So there is actually a story behind this, which is that lo these many years ago, I played Sirius at the very start of the Milliways Bar…
…you’re going to make me draw this aren’t you.
Hay animation cozins. Have you ever seen a cool shot that made your head spin and left you wondering “How did they do that?!”
Or you’d like to hone your composition skills but not sure how to do that?
Film Studies are your friends.
The subject came up at lunch today, and I cannot stress how useful this was to me when I started storyboarding. It’s one thing to see moving images on screen, but something else entirely when it’s time to draw them, isn’t it.
Since I didn’t formally study animation, this practice helped me understand the movement of elements on the screen, composition, perspective and shot flow. Plus, it helped me develop a more confident shorthand. :D
I still do this now whenever I want to understand how a complex shot is put together. Like all the crazy action tracking shots in Attack on Titan, for example! :D
I highly recommend that you try these for yourselves. Don’t spend more than 1-2 minutes per panel and do them in ink! It’ll stop you from second guessing and help you develop trust in your linework.
Olga you did this for me, right? Right?? ;D

Lol, my name is Jean-Ak. Like I slid across the floor as I introduced myself to someone, “Hi I’m Jean-ACK!!!”
Jean and I have special conversations that lead to things.
This needs no explanation. Hulk sparkle pants
HULK IS HULK AND HULK IS A PRINCESS
Amy Dallen is one of the most delightful people in comics! I frequently go to House of Secrets, the comic book store where she works and she is the reason why HoS is one of my favorite comic book stores in Southern California. Amy knows comics, Amy LOVES comics and Amy is an interesting and verbose person about comics and other nerd things. After seeing her on Wil Wheaton’s ‘TableTop’ show, I and many people told her that she needs her own show, maybe about comics. Geeks and Sundry now have given her that show and I am GLAD! I hope everyone will watch the show, support Amy, and maybe learn a thing or two about comics that they didn’t know before. :D
