WOAH, WHAT. I was in the "honorable mentions" for two categories! :D

Best Antagonist: Steven Stone (Ruby Nuzlocke) and for Top Producer

That's so awesome!!! I'm not even sad I didn't win. :XD: I'm glad that my comics got some recognition! :) Thank you to those who voted for my comics! :D :heart: :hug:

My comics were voted/nominated/shortlisted for these categories, though: 
 
Steven Stone -- Best antagonist character
Eliza and Steven -- Best non-canon relationship (any unofficial pairings made popular by creators/fans, including cross-canon relationships between characters from different creators)
LizDraws -- Top producer (these people have incredibly profilic - they've made so much Nuzlocke for you to read!)
LizDraws -- Super Pokefan

Here's a link to all the winners: fav.me/d7z5t8m, and do check out their comics/stories! :D

--------------------------------------------

Last week, I spoke to an animator who graduated from an animation school in New York and he showed me his illustrations. They were brilliant. :heart: He told me he studied traditional animation, and he told me that he met Henry Sellick (The Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline, James and the Giant Peach) and he said that Don Bluth taught (I think he's still teaching, I'm not sure) anatomy at his school! Freakin' Don Bluth, man!!!! I was so shocked that I cried. I wondered what this guy would think of my sketches. :XD: So, I told him that I wanted to become a storyboard artist and I showed him my sketches and for fun I showed him my comics.

He told me that the art I'm doing is a good start. He told me he saw much worse during his freshman year :XD:  He told me that I tend to give my characters "pointed chins," you know, the anime look? :XD: But he also told me that he likes most of the designs for the characters, and that the style is reminiscent of Butch Hartman's, Jhonen Vasquez's, and Genndy Tartakovsy's art styles. Which made me happy, because that's sort of what I was going for! I don't think I've shown any of you guys those sketches, but to be honest, I kind of don't want to. I want to keep them to myself. My original characters, my original series, and all. I don't want to risk it being stolen or something. :XD: 

So I showed him my nuzlocke comics for fun, and he told me that it was good practice for being a storyboard artist! :D :boogie: He also told me to NEVER use deviantArt as my site for my profession or to put my portfolio up here. I told him that I don't; I'm here for fun. :XD: Nuzlocke comics and whatnot, that's just all for fun. I don't make money off of it, it's just something to do in my free time. 

After that, we ended up fanboying/girling over Don Bluth's work. We, and my roommates, ended up watching The Secret of NIMH, a beautiful movie! I recommend it for any animation fan! :) And, after that, he got drunk afterwards. :XD:

So overall, he told me that I'm doing good for starting out, but I have a lot of training ahead of me. He told me to practice drawing different types of faces, shapes of heads, and practice more on anatomy. He also told me to flesh out my style; learn how to draw in different styles. Honestly, I'm glad he criticized me and gave me advice. :lol: Because, you need criticism. You need it to learn from it. You learn from your mistakes. I always get criticized by my art professors. :XD: But the critics aren't being mean and "misunderstanding." They are trying to help artists, to break them apart and put them back together again, improved. They are teaching us how to become better. :heart:  

So, I'm happy I met him. :)

-------------------------------------------------------

So, yeah, as I've said, I'm busy with school and in my free time, if I do get some, I spend it with my friends and I sketch in my sketchbook. I've been doing a lot of traditional art, mostly with crayons. Haha. I'm drawing way too much FNaF's in my sketchbook. I need help And :iconoctotrash: and I are thinking of doing a FNaF's collab! :boogie:

My class schedule is much busier than I thought it would be. I mean, fuck. =__= Sometimes I have to do all-nighters just to get some work, readings, or anything done. And I barely have anytime to hang out with most of my friends. :faint: This semester is going to take a lot out of me. >__< But, I know I can make it through! *is determined*

The nuzlocke will be put on hold until either I can find some free time, or when I'm done with this semester, which should be in mid-December. I really need to be in the mood to draw it, and if I'm not, I'll slack off. U_U So, please try to understand. :heart:

------------------------------------------------

I just noticed I've been a member of this site for 6 years now. Awesome! :D
