Simple fan edit by Dejicita on Twitter. Looks 100000x better; more expressive face, smaller cranium, A+++.
The handwriting says “quickly fixed in SAI”.
lol, this. I don’t understand the people that keep telling fans who dislike the animation problems to shut up and use the reasoning that “It’s supposed to be like the manga! It’s supposed to look like that because it’s based on the manga!”. It DOESN’T look like the manga. It’s not nearly as expressive as the manga is, and it has a lot of technical issues.
No one actually has a problem with the manga style, but rather how badly they executed it in the new anime trailer.
I’m so tired of being told “NO IT LOOKS LIKE THE MANGA JEEZ DON’T YOU KNOW ANY BETTER” when it looks nothing like Naoko Takeuchi’s art style.
that simple re-edit fix is super appealing and way better! look, her eyes are focussed! they’re in proper perspective! her hair’s been pulled back to keep the focus on the actual importance of the scene here (the…transformation) and my goodness, look at how much the edit looks like Naoko Takeuchi’s style and how expressive it is.

I felt like painting some gold!

rooiphine asked: Hey there! I've been following you for quite a while now and I truly admire your work! I just wanted to know if you know of any jobs that are highly related to concept art work in the video game industry but don't require a ridiculously high skill level. I'm sort of trying to become an artist myself, but I'm not really any good and worry about my options. Even though art is somehow my main skill, there's just too much I still can't paint properly, I have no style, no technique...What to do? :' (
Oh boy. *Sucks in a deep breath*
Well thank you, first of all. I have to say I’m obviously not aware of -every single job going in the concept art industry- but: are there many that don’t require a high skill level?
No. Not to be a downer, but it’s highly unlikely. It’s a specialized, highly competitive industry. There are related jobs, of course, texture artists, modellers… but they don’t require less skill, just skills in a different area.
Perhaps it’s just something that’s meant to be more of a hobby? Get some practice and some confidence! Not having a job in the industry doesn’t make you any less of an artist.

I haven’t sketched for myself in what feels like ages. So it was time for Damien Rice and short haired girls <3
Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture
Ever since I first watched Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture I’ve rewatched it every year or so. It’s one of the most inspiring, funny and moving things I’ve had the pleasure to watch. It really stayed with me. If you ever need a good dose of perspective or a reminder of why you’re chasing your dreams; it’s this right here. Everyone should watch this at least once!
