I'm going to run away to Kansas and become a ventriloquist  
Yesterday at D-Land was quite fun! It was raining most of the time (not hard rain, but enough to require hoods and umbrellas), which drove away most of the crowds. This made the lines super-short, so we pretty much ran through all the queues and onto the rides. I have never seen a ten-minute line for Space Mountain before; it was kind of mind-blowing.

We also got lots of candy, om nom! We ran into a Roxas and a Halloween Town!Sora, and of course had some geekout moments. A lot more people recognized KH outfits; Halloween is usually a good time to go for that. XD

Also, I haven't even played Professor Layton before, but holy crap that Layton / Phoenix Wright crossover looks like ten flavors of EPIC. I'm gonna need to pick that up, because daaaayum that is awesome.

Aaand I guess this is the end of the KH 30 Day Meme! I'm kinda going to miss doing these. XD At least it was fun to do!

Kingdom Hearts 30 Day Meme
Day 29 - World/Disney Character you would most like to see

I HAVE WAY TOO MANY, FFFFF. I really want to see a Pixar world; either Toy Story or Monster's Inc., because they'd both work well as worlds to run around and fight in (and I have a huge soft spot for Monster's Inc.) Oh and I REALLY want a Bambi world, if for no other reason than to see the heroes run around as deer. I would also like to see Atlantis, and as for characters, I would scream and explode from awesome if they had Marahute/any aspect of RDU in there. Or the firebird from Fantasia 2000 as a boss. *_*

Day 30 - Biggest Wish for KH3

- I want to see a Sora/Kairi kiss, dangit! They're way overdue for one! BUUUUT, Nomura knows his audience way too well, so that's never gonna happen. Other BIGGEST WISHES:
- Again, any Pixar worlds. I know they mentioned the possibility once, and that makes me go *_*
- Let Kairi fight with us for once! Make her a party member or something!
- Getting to run around the big island of Destiny Islands instead of just the kids' island. Meeting their parents would be awesome.
- A mention of OSWALD.

...Yeah I have too many wishes. 8D

Since it's just about the end of the term, there will be some final projects going up! Aaaand this is one of them. o_o

For my Animation for Games class, I wanted to do Phoenix Wright as if he were a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, since then hey, I'd actually have fun doing it. XD

- Obviously this isn't an actual model of Phoenix Wright. I wish I had an actual model, but I just didn't have the time to actual model and rig and skin a whole new Phoenix. Plus it would probably look crappy because I suck at rigging. :P So, have Generic Naked Guy I Grabbed Off The Network instead.
- I didn't get the chance to do a bunch of moves, like A-down, all of the A-arial moves, the hit/hurt moves, the grab and throw, etc. The walk and sprint took up a lot more time than I thought they would. Maybe if people really really really really want the rest I'll get to it sometime? o_O
- Obviously didn't have the resources to do a Final Smash attack. I at least wanted to get the B-moves in there.
- The music is from Cadenza; sorry that it cuts off like that.

BUT YEAH. That was an interesting exercise. XD; It's really crazy how many assets you actually need just for one character in game animation.

Digital sets tonight. My stuff needs so much work, cryyyyyyyy. DX

Drawing: Catching up on LG, plus I restarted that KH fanart because the first pass was made of ugly. Looking much better now. And I'm suddenly been getting a big fanart urge. Need more ideas!

Not another art dump?!  
IT'S THE LAST WEEEEEEEEEK OF TERM OMG. I'm so ready for the break! ;_; And we pretty much have the whole two weeks this time, except for one makeup on Monday, but I can deal with that. YAYZORS. (I really wish that WDW trip had worked out, though. D:)

On Sunday John subbed our character design class, and he brought in a model for us to do figure drawing. OH MAN, JUST WHAT I NEEDED. I really have no clue why I'm such a lazy ass and don't force myself to draw from life more often, particularly using John's methods (his methods being sending a big FU to rigid anatomy and just making an interesting drawing), because every time I do it I feel like I've loosened up all this artistic tension and still learned something new.

So have a crapload of stuff I did for that Sunday (and it's all the same model, FYI).

These figure drawings include bewbs, uh oh )

Also, some fanart )

Gonna crosspost all of this to dA, so be warned. /o/

Of course, there's a new Lunargyros page today. Yikes, gotta catch up, I'm behind...

Drawing: But first, I've got to finish up character design and digital painting homework, since it's the LAST ASSIGNMENTS. o_o Doin' that most of the day today, then tomorrow, turtles and sharks...

Writing: Stuff here and there.

[ profile] gaelic_bohemian and [ profile] corrielle, I've registered for Comic Con now and you're both under my name. I'll forward you the email with your confirmation numbers and such; they'll need to be printed out and brought with you. I also think you need to be with me when you register? Em, you owe me money for your ticket in particular. I don't know how much the normal passes are, but it may not have been as discounted as you hoped. :/ Anyways! Got that settled for this July, woot! And I am planning to attend all four days and preview night; I'm just going to end up skipping whatever school then.

Completely unrelated: Does anyone out there have audio clips of all the various lawyers' versions of "OBJECTION!" from Phoenix Wright, or do you know where those could be downloaded? (Preferably not in a Windows-exclusive file type, but I can deal with it.) I wanted to try a bit of dialogue animation just for fun, and thought it'd be fun to do see what character I can get from PW's various OBJECTION!s. Probably would not do it for characters like Apollo and Klavier, though, since I haven't played Apollo Justice and don't really know their characters well.

Even more completely unrelated: I had a disturbing dream last night, but while I was having it, I kind of felt like I was participating in an old 80's horror movie and therefore somehow knew what was going to happen next, yet I couldn't stop it. D: Something about a stilted neighbor wanting to kill off all of my friends and family through various methods, but at the same time providing each person with one tool or object they could supposedly use to thwart their death, but only if they were smart enough to recognize when and how to use it. Case in point: I received snake venom antidote, but was also delivered this big poisonous snake that I was trying to wrestle into submission. DX I guess an antidote is kind of cheating, but apparently the killer liked me best. Either way, the whole feel and look to the dream was really unsettling.

Actually related: It's really sad when GOOGLE makes a better spellcheck than Microsoft Word does.

So my Character Skinning class was cancelled today! (We'll have to make it up later, but oh well) So that means no school. ...So I basically spent the rest of the day finishing the last case of PW3. 8D

Spoilers and capslock like the dickens for PW3 )

Aaaaand since this was the third game I've finally finished, my thoughts on the series as a whole:


Also, THANKS TO THE DUDES ON IM WHO LISTENED TO ME CAPSLOCK. XD And even now I can't help but capslock! Go figure.

P.S. That one secret in FS the other day? DAAAAAMN, now I want Phoenix as a playable fighter the way I'm dying for Sora to be a playable fighter! I mean come on, defense attorney goes up against Mario/Link/Kirby/etc.? It'd be BADASS. Maybe he could be an assist trophy. I wish it would happen. :P

More Phoenix Wright chat  
As GG and others can attest to, I had many capslocky reactions to starting the fifth case of Trials and Tribulations... )

I'm not yet sure how I feel about Toy Story 3. I trust Pixar to be awesome, yes. But what's with this obsession with 3D? I only saw part of "Meet the Robinsons" in 3D and it was making my head spin worse than "Cloverfield" did. MTR was fine without 3D! If you want people in theaters, I suggest pursuing other venues!

So I just got back from seeing "Cloverfield" with [ profile] yamikonumber7!


So, my bottom line: If you a) Like monster movies, b) don't mind staring at peoples' feet walking through rubble for about a third of the movie, and c) don't mind scary stuff/blood/explosions, go see it! It's a unique moviegoing experience. :3 And Yamiko was clinging to me a lot of the time, LOL.

Aside from that? I have bravely been pressing onward with Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations! I am currently on the third case! And since I was chatting with [ profile] ggmoonycrisco yesterday as I was playing the game, here's some snippets of my reactions to the case:

Phoenix Wright 3-3 spoilers )

BTW, I have correctly guessed who Godot really is, OHYEAH. And now I'm gonna go play more of that case... /o/

First post of 2008 is...pretty standard!  
Curses! I got the crummy computer at work, so now not only is there no Firefox or AIM, there's also no music, and it's gonna make me go NUUUUTS. The weirdest thing is, the computer doesn't even seen to have a disc drive. I mean, obviously the disc tray is there to load CDs into and all, but the computer doesn't even list a D-drive in the "My Computer" section. How is that possible? D:a

Could be worse, I suppose. The computer could be running Vista. But I will be a sad thing without tunes to listen to or people to talk to. ;_; ...Or maybe this job just spoils me ridiculously; I don't know.

Oh yes, New Years evening was quite fine; hung out with everyone at the Ranch, where we watched some Doctor Who and "Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind" (although I fell asleep at the end of that one.) Em got a new DVD player that lets you play things directly off of a flash drive. :O Pretty nifty! Also that day, I went ahead and bought PW: Justice for All. XD Because dangit, these games are fuuuun.

Then on New Years Day, I drove on down to Disneyland for drawage. Man, if nothing else, going on the 1st was great because there was NOOO TRAFFIC. Although it was really kind of strange doing D-Land by myself...I've always gone with friends or family or some other. But I did get some pages' worth of sketches...they just happen to be on my home computer right now. :P Dunno whether I should try and do color finishes on any of them or not. Things I noticed:
- Both cast members and random strangers will stop and talk to you more if you're sitting still. I actually had a couple kids draw in my sketchbook 'cause they wanted to stop and draw, too. XD
- Speaking of, kids use their mouths more expressively than adults to.
- And speaking of speaking of, I suck at drawing mouths. D:

In the meanwhile, I guess I should really get to drawin' since I have the free time. Thankfully I also have PW. XD I just started the third case. A-and...I dunno what to think about Pearl channeling Mia. Except maybe D:. And dude, those psyche-lock parts were sometimes harder than the trial itself!

And almost forgot: there was a new Lunargyros page last Tuesday!

UUUUGH YES. So an hour or so ago, I FINALLY FINISHED PHOENIX WRIGHT YAAAY. (Yes, I'm already done with the game. I've basically been playing it for eight hours straight during work, with nothing else to do. :P So now! My thoughts, in complete randomness and no particular order:

TAKE THAT! (watch out for spoilers) )

...Soooo I'll probably go out and get JfA pretty soon, if not tomorrow, since I have that handy gift card from [ profile] chobit001 to spend, anyway. XD; I know I should be getting back to "work," but at least I...still have the week before school starts? 8D; And the nice thing about these games is that they're not hugely time-consuming, like say, Pokemon or some such. I can get through the game and have fun with the characters without tons of time investment.

Uhh, I was gonna talk about New Years/end of 2007/beginning of 2008, but I don't think I will now. XD; That'll be tomorrow.
