To answer a few questions you might have:

- Hermann isn’t with his cane in my sequence because I imagined the Jaeger Drive suit created for him would have that accounted for; It would be odd if it DIDN’T have protective braces for him within the armor. (much like Tony Stark in his Iron Man suit- he can lift a car because of that armor) I also imagined that he’s about to drift with Newt and in sharing that neural handshake he may not feel the pain from his leg temporarily.

- The Jaeger I designed for them is based upon the idea mentioned that a Kaiju-Jaeger hybrid could be a possible plot element. Burn also mentioned it to me at Dragon*con. Whether it’s officially gonna happen or not is up in the air. :) And the name I gave it? LYMPH-CODE. I’m a fuckin’ dork.

- I’ll be posting more sketches of Lymph-Code. I’ve thought out a lot about how it’ll function as a hybrid. I’m excited about those ideas! :3 All I can say is that NO part of the Jaeger design is USELESS, and that Newt and Hermann in my mind would have several times more screens to look at than the average Jaeger team due to biological feeds as well. ;) The electronic eyes fail? Wellp, no problem…we have other options here though the world may look very different through THOSE feeds. ;)

I’ve wanted to be a part of Pacific Rim 2 ever since it was announced. This is what I’ve put together own my own time with the intention of hopefully getting noticed by the right people. I’d love to be a storyboard artist and involved somehow in future Pacific Rim productions. I hope you all enjoy watching this little segment, and please help me by sharing it and spreading the word about my goofy little demo reel! 

Here’s hoping that I get a chance to work on PR professionally! :D THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT! 

I’m cleaning up my computer and found a ton of selfies from over the last year- Some of these photos were taken for reference for my drawing (that’s often how I work out poses- just turn on webcam and use myself as the model) others were to show off the clothing and fashion.

Uhhhh…

Aaaah, I know I should be getting back to work but it’s my coffee break right now and- Well, you know the froggie Newt took care of as a kid that I mentioned in this post? Now I’ve got this idea that I want to draw as a comic-

Newt was so worried about his little frog friend after the girl freaked out and sort of hurt him. His frog (we’ll call him Herbert huhu) wasn’t hopping around and Newt cried and took care of him, keeping him in his specially built aquarium and monitored him every day until his leg got better. Eventually he let Herbert go and tearfully said goodbye. He got worried because he never saw Herbert at the pond again the next year… he forgot about him for years. Then he met a certain frog-like man when he transferred to the Hong Kong Shatterdome. They’d shared letters, but the first thing Newt blurted out upon actually meeting in person was “-Like my frog…” Hermann Gottlieb took great offense and had no idea that Newt was actually enchanted by him and Hermann reminded him of a friend he had once who was a great comfort to him during sad times. Instead, Hermann believed Newt was insulting him by calling him a frog and hurled back an insult right away out of embarrassment. 

What he didn’t know was that Newt was secretly thinking that meeting Hermann was a sign that Herbert was still with him somehow. T^T 

Little Newton found it hard to make friends because he was 5 years younger than most of his classmates. But it didn’t bother him too much because his REAL friends came to the pond every spring. <3 Despite being clumsy in other aspects, Newt always took great care to shelter his pond friends and release them back ito the wild. 
(Also chubby kid Newt headcanon even tho the actor they got to play him as a kid was thin. Don’tcurr). XD also have a head canon that newt tried to give a frog to an older girl he liked and she called him gross and almost threw the frog. Newt ran home crying with his frog friend bc he was worried she hurt his leg.but that’s a tragedy for another time.

Is it bad that I kinda pretend I’m Newt making Japanese food? XD Tonight I’m watching Ghibli films and they always make me super hungry. So I put on some rice in my rice cooker and made Onigiri! I had a ton of leftover rice, so I also put together a little bento for later. 

Wasabi Sesame Onigiri (green), Beefsteak plant leaf Onigiri (purple), Plain onigiri with an umeboshi plum, and a little cup of Giardiniera- Italian vegetable pickles. I just added those in because I have such an intense love of giardiniera you have no idea. I used to fill up my salads with just pepperocini and olive salad when I was a kid. LOVE IT. 

I can’t take full-shots yet, but I’ll have more pics as Otakon rolls around! If you can believe it, I have ONE MORE COAT to put on that helmet to smooth out a couple rough patches.

Just me musing about something I noticed- THE CON VOICE. X3 Not an authoritative voice in general, not a louder voice, a specific tone that I’ve only ever heard people directing lines and other crowds at conventions use! XD

Also let it be known that I respect all volunteers and staff at conventions I attend and have attended. They are what makes the con go round, and they work very hard. I’m friends with a good number of them, and have had classmates who volunteer at Otakon. These are just my observations about the uniform shift in voice tone that I’ve noticed people take, unique to conventions. ;)

omg this is so true like 

pizza-shinobi & feuervogel - I think the closest other instances I’ve heard it at besides cons personally was my days in theater as a teen (even then the director seemed to favor a very similar tone, except the inflection would always go up instead of down- she wanted us to like her so I think she was uncomfortable with sounding “harsh” loool), but there’s something so MUPPET like to the cadence of con staff SPECIFICALLY that tickles me! XD Agreed it’s def a mix of the projection and enunciation. Opposite is when someone’s clearly trying to avoid teens thinking they’re uncool so they actually enunciate LESS and put on a weird “Uhhh heyyguyyys” drone! I think it’s interesting how people change their tone sometimes without even realizing it.

Taking a moment to look back through Dragon*Con 2013 photos, savoring each one and looking at each person’s face closely-

This post is dedicated to my Hermann’s (mudora) uncanny Burn Gorman facial expressions. :3c I think she’s really freaking spot on with channeling him and I present some photo evidence. ;)

bigdrunkgay wanted an old grumpy Hermann rat! :3c He probably worries that little mouse Newt’s greed and daring runs out of their nest for food will get them caught! Followup to This Post

Super excited, because I just ordered my crepe hair and pros-aide adhesive for Charlie Kelly’s beard. :3c Are we doing this? Yeah, we’re fucking doing this.

kawaii-necromorph - Sure! I went on ebay: The crepe hair is here and the Pros-Aide is from this vendor. I should be getting my items sometime this week or next. I haven’t bought from those two before, so I can report here to let you know once I get my items safe and sound! Just consider me the crash-dummy ;D. I went with Pros-Aide this time instead of Spirit Gum because, as my cosplay partner can tell you… I hate the smell of spirit gum and it makes me want to scream lol! (Cosplayed Jigen from Lupin III for like, 3 years off and on so yeah)

kawaii-necromorph my Crepe hair for Charlie’s beard and mustache arrived today! :D So you can trust the seller in the link above! I’m still waiting on my Pros-Aide and sent a message to the seller today; they’ve given tracking info but it hasn’t updated for four days. We shall see! Hope this helps~ :3image

Hey there kawaii-necromorph - My Pros-Aide FINALLY arrived in the mail today. While it’s the right product, I honestly wouldn’t recommend dealing with the seller I purchased it from on ebay. They’re a little shifty- they responded to my questions about the shipping but never explained why the tracking number was and REMAINS invalid. They also refused to answer my question about where they are mailing it from, and got defensive when I told them I would like tracking information. Then I found out that they only put in the tracking number last Monday. So they acted like they shipped it, and hoped I’d be satisfied. But they didn’t really mail it until THIS Monday. Not a terrible delay, but I didn’t like the fact that they waited a whole week to actually put it in the mail and tried to make it look like they mailed it earlier. 

Damn guys, I’m working on a project of my own making right now and I’m super excited. It’s all part of my (ridiculous) mission to be a part of Pacific Rim 2. I’m every bit aware of how much of a long shot it is, but either way I’m gonna try- better to try and fail than to regret never trying at all. I’m just combining two of my goals- work professionally in my field as a storyboard artist and work on something that I love with all my heart in the process. The chances are that when I do finally get my first paid professional gig it won’t be something quite so big, but in this case I’m operating on the idea of shooting for the moon. I’m going to reveal what I’ve been working on VERY SOON.
