Commissons are open...and very cheap!!
Guys! Guys! After some messing around, I finally utilized my movie maker program for the first time last night, and put together a new video for you all!
I can now put opening title and ending title cards on my videos, and edit them for time. Hopefully, in future projects, I'll have music and other effects added, but for now, I'm just taking baby steps. Let's just pray all future uploads go smoothly. (You can upload the video to YouTube directly from the program, and my laptop gave me a scare when the loading bar was taking forever. I thought I had done something wrong. Turns out the video was just long, probably.
So, in this episode, I tried out doing some doodle tricks using letters of the alphabet. I covered A-M, and in the next episode, I'll do letters N-Z. [link]
In other news, I just watched Frankenweenie and absolutely loved it.
I'm a sucker for black and white movies (they almost never make them anymore), as well as references to various old films. So for me, this movie really delivered, and hit me with all kinds of feels, from laughter to tears. If you like classic movies (horror in particular), and your eyes can still register black and white, this is the movie for you.
And on a related note, not too long ago, I also saw Paranorman, and enjoyed it just as much. It's from the same people who made Coraline, and since I loved that movie, I was sure I'd like this one too, and I did.
There was actually a legit amount of creepy/scary stuff in it, though, so I wouldn't reccomend it for younger kids.
Great...now I'm compelled to draw fan art of Coraline, Norman, and Victor hanging out together. These kids sure know how to handle horror.
