That strange feeling of validation you get when an artist you admire follows you and likes your work

Noclip by Eva Figueroa López
"Noclip" is a fake trailer, for a movie that, for now, is not going to be made, about the incredible power of its characters to defy the physics of the world they live in, almost as if they were cheating a videogame. With this project, I wanted to both experiment with the concept and improve my animation skills. Hope you all enjoy watching as much as I enjoyed working on it!
Really, give this a watch.
A type of female warrior belonging to the Japanese upper class. They are sometimes mistakenly referred to as female samurai, although this is an oversimplification. Onna bugeisha were very important people in ancient Japan. Significant icons such as Empress Jingu, Tomoe Gozen, Nakano Takeko, and Hōjō Masako were all onna bugeisha who came to have a significant impact on Japan.
Nonetheless, for thousands of years, certain upper class Japanese women have learned martial skills and participated in fighting.
Between the 12th and 19th centuries, many women of the samurai class learned how to handle the sword and the naginata (a blade on a long staff) primarily to defend themselves and their homes. In the event that their castle was overrun by enemy warriors, the women were expected to fight to the end and die with honor, weapons in hand.
Some young women were such skilled fighters that they rode out to war beside the men, rather than sitting at home and waiting for war to come to them.
And to add to this:
Women have always fought.

Please see my commission model. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AuV0vpqU2c7YdE1GZzhSaXpBSW5WOGhDNzlGa1cxaVE#gid=0
Hey guys! My wife is open up for commissions! She does awesome characters, so contact her if you’re interested!
Since I caught my wife’s cold, I’ve drawing rather than crawling back in bed with my eyes wide open. 2 out of maybe 30 today. At this rate, I’ll need a new sketchbook.
Today has been one of those days where I type up long, thought out responses to people on the internet, and then delete them when I’m done.
I guess I don’t want to hear their reply so bad that I’d rather not speak in the first place.
Being insecure: Tomáš Jech at TEDxExpressionCollege
Success doesn’t make your insecurity go away. This guy worked at Pixar, Bungie, and Blizzard being miserable and beating himself up until he had an amazing realization.
Artists! If you’re done working for exposure and want real artistic opportunities to come to you, here are ten questions…
Looks like there’s some things I need to change…
Saw a screening of Frozen at CTNX
And Shoomlah was sitting behind me!
Disney has not been the best with marketing lately. It is not a tangled clone, so tumblr:
It was amazing, and when it comes out you should see it. The writers and animators and directors at Disney know what they’re doing, even if their marketing team doesn’t.
So shut up, and watch it (when it comes out), its so good.
And the snowman Olaf was also marketed badly, he grows on you! I really liked him, he really wasn’t as stupid as I thought he was going to be. Remember, Disney marketing: bad. Disney animation: good.
