Now Playing Tracks

My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.

To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…

Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.

My only statement. My brothers’ are also online. Thank you for all your kindness, and goodbye for awhile guys. xo (via zeldawilliams)

I am glad Zelda knows of the support we’re all sending her and her family’s way. My day has been just so gray thinking about the loss - feeling the loss like a missing piece of myself. Sometimes we don’t know how much someone has influenced us until they’re gone. After all, what defines a moment? A connection? Two people sending out vibes will meet somewhere. Whether the conduit be a television, the internet, one-sided, in person. A connection is made. A moment is had. And I can honestly say that I’ve shared many with the late Mr. Williams and the loss is real. Best I can do now is take his advice and never lose my spark. <3

"You’re only given a little spark of madness.

You mustn’t lose it.”

- And now, a small preview about “how a comic book is conceived” :
In this case the book is “SKY DOLL DECADE” , a special edition dedicates to my comicc book series, that has more than 10 years.
It will be released in the USA very soon ! 
And the part I’m about showing you is the one closest to me : the final design, the coloring and the graphic design.

The gun without line ( pencil art by Alessandro Barbucci , obviously !).
- Noa without line 
- Noa ended
- The cover with design , with all the graphic elements ( by Barbucci, me and Matteo De Longis )
- The completed cover along with the back cover.
- And … THE BOOK ! 

I hope you will enjoy it ! 

———————————

- Una piccola dimostrazione di come nasce una copertina.

In questo caso si tratta du “SKY DOLL DECADE”, un libro dedicato alla mia serie che compie ,oramai, più di 10 anni .
E molto presto uscirà ( ! ) anche negli Stati Uniti, finalmente….

Questa che vi mostro in specifico è la parte che mi riguarda di più infatti :  il design definitivo del personaggio, il  colore e la grafica del libro.
Spero che vi piaccia  !

One of my favourite comics is the Skydoll comic book that came out for the US, years ago. “Chapter 4” has been “in production” for… more years. I really hope this has something to do with the newest chapters! I want more Skydooolll! <3

The Last of Us LIVE was amazing. This game comes full circle, Naughty Dog is a saint of gaming. They create this beautiful game, the fans fall in love with it, then the ND team gives us a documentary and a live show with reenactments. Whaaaaaat. <3

So I wanted to do something cool to celebrate 800 followers, so I did a wallpaper style image of the new Warframe Mirage (who is still bakin in my foundry)  Hope you guys enjoy it and thanks for thinkin my stuff is worth seeing and following me, means a lot.

All in all U14 is really cool and sets the framework for even cooler stuff (the ui could be a bit smaller though).

My brother’s so boss. <3!

This marks the first and last issue of my very own slice of life comic detailing my adventures in the real world.

You know what really helps you shake off the feeling of tiredness?  BLOOD FREEZING TERROR.

godDAMN I hated this about Michigan. But at least the streets outside at night weren’t overrun by roaches, like it is here in NC. But… those centipedes… those are made of the stuff of nightmares.

Hello there!I dont know how many messages like this you get, but I wanted to ask you about how you reached a place at dreamworks :D Where and what did you study during the years? I am currently studiyng graphic design and would love to study animation after Im done, but I simply dont know which is the best choice and how expensive it will be. I would be honored if you'd like to share you story with me, I admire your work a lot! :D Best wishes, Eleanor.

Thanks!

We have never had art classes, so we have been self-taught up until this point. We were also going to art school, but we left 3 weeks in of the first quarter of school for the job. So we did avoid  further expenses, and at this point, a certain degree hasn’t mattered. We graduated high school in 2012, and through 2013, took a community college course in history and some basics. Nothing art related. We unfortunately did not have art classes offered in our high school of local college (to help much with portfolio material, that is.) Plus, we would be in major debt. It was either a full scholarship, or no art school at all. (Full scholarships don’t do squat these days though!)  

It’s all about what you put into your work, how well you do it,  and putting yourself out there! 

We were discouraged in our younger years because of all the cool classes and opportunities that other people our age had in order to work towards animation. There were some summer art classes, but nothing that interested us for a particular career around our very small, rural town.
