Picture of the Week

Run, Shin 2010 by Shinerai
"So I hink this is my fourth Shinerai run animation. I was kinda doing them a year apart, but then I kinda failed and didn't do one for a while. Due to the loss of several hours of work on a commission, I haven't been entirely motivated to draw a real piece and saw a redline I did of a friend's run animation a while ago in my Photobucket. I decided why not make a new run for Shinerai, then!

I don't know what it is with me and run animations, but they're fun c: It's a shame I didn't finish my zyxmet one. I'm not overly concerned with how small the image is since this is technically a WIP. I hope to EVENTUALLY Detail it a little more and color it. But for now I'm pretty tired of drawing the same thing over and over again so I doubt it'll happen soon.

anyway, Shinerai are belong to me. downloading wont make it bigger.


[EDIT] I guess explanation on the way I drew it. There are several different types of runs in the real world, I chose this type of run since I imagine Shinerai to be more of a bounder than a galloper. He's got some pretty long back legs so I figure a lot of the power from his run comes from those throwing him forward, so I wanted a good amount of air-time though I think it could have used another frame. All and all this animation is pretty slow and 4-5 frames more than I usually do for a run cycle, but I liked it and didn't really want to do the tweening I'd need to if I deleted a frame. So there."

Philosophy Friday

As part of an ongoing study I will be putting up a word every Friday.
I would like you to comment on the post what the word brings to mind or to answer one of the questions associated with the word.
 This week's word is

Death

How does it effect you to know someone has died?
Does it effect you more the closer that individual was to you?
Is in an ending? A change? A new beginning?
What do you think of when you look to the future?
Are you afraid?
No, then what do you feel?

Artist of the Month: AsheRhyder


AsheRhyder is the creator of a doujinshi titled Roommates that combines The Phantom of the Opera, Sweeney Todd, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings, House, Doctor Who, Labyrinth, and on and on.  It is incredible the way she has managed to blend the various universes into an incredibly fun read. I am increasingly impressed by her style and have enjoyed watching her shading techniques change overtime.

Here is the first page:
 This comic actually prompted two others Girls Next Door by Pika-la-Cynique and Down the Street byHeroesDaughter.
