      Thank you, Goth :)!

  3. The Search for the next AO

    Oh. Well I feel stupid now, it never crossed my mind to look in the Plaques section. Aw well, but a non-plaque version would still be a great toon to have, though.
  4. The Search for the next AO

    I've suddenly just been in an editing mood, and I liked that 'A Hero at Last' suggestion so much, I thought I would try my hand at it.^^ Though, I'll understand if its not good enough to use on this site, after all, I'm not all that good at editing. (BTW, It looks a lot better on a darker background.) EDIT - Man, I am in the zone tonight! I really have no idea where all this energy came from, but I am having a blast! I decided to cut another one...

  6. Today was the last day of the film festival, and it was fantastic!^^ I got to present my award for best animated film in front of everybody which I enjoyed, and afterward, I even managed to have an engaging conversation with someone for about an entire hour! I was able to share some of my ideas and just enjoy myself.

    Really, the entire festival was an enthralling experience for me. Being able to watch all of these amazing and talented pieces of art, thus supporting all the artists who made them, greatly inspired me to forgo my own creations. This was honestly one of the best weeks of my entire life!^^

      @deepcanyon1Thank you! I really did have a great time, film has always been one of my deepest passions ever since I was really little, so being able to go to a film festival was like being a kid in a candy store for me.:chuckle: And no problem, I always like sharing some of my awesome experiences with others.

      And yes, I do create a little myself, though, not nearly as much as I would like to produce as of yet. But you can still watch some of what I have done on YouTube. I mostly do vlogs, but I have a couple short films as well, just look up the same username as I have here.^^

      i love to get to go places that have things to do that i love like artwork..then i can be like a kid in a candy store..we have the dali museum here and i love abstract art..and i have to go and check out some of your work on youtube. And if you ever become famous dont forget us little people  ;) and if I have trouble finding it on youtube i will let you know and maybe you can send me a link in a pm :)  

    4. XxGothsCanSmile2xX


      @deepcanyon1Abstract art certainly is expressive, that's cool about the dali museum for you! And if I ever do become famous, I will certainly try my best not to forget you guys, after all, I'm just a little person with big dreams myself as it is, it would be too hypocritical of me to forget.^_^

      As for my YouTube channel, sounds good! It shouldn't be too hard to find, but if you can't, I'll be happy to drop a link. I recommend you find my animated stuff, as I think those are my best work, but that's just my opinion!^^

  7. Tonight was definitely the best night of the film festival!^^ They only played three videos, but they were three of the most beautiful, imaginative, and creative films I have seen in a really long time.

    The first two were in sequence with each other. They are part of an animated series of short films known as ' World of Tomorrow,' which you can actually watch the first episode on NETFLIX right now, which I highly recommend. It may only be about 16 min. long, but it is so insightful I guarantee you'll enjoy every single minute. Otherwise, the second one in the series is only premiered at film festivals at this current time (as far as I know of), but I think it just might be better than the original, and the first one is amazing! And if I'm right, there might be more in the future, which I would be excited to see!

    The last film was a feature length film, animated entirely through canvas oil paintings in the style of Vincent Van Gogh. The whole film was about a man trying to figure out the death of Van Gogh, placed within a year after his death. This animation was the very first like it in the entire world, with over 100 different artist working on it all at once. The unique animation style along with a compelling story ark makes this film truly a magnificent work of art!

  8. The film festival was a bust last night. They couldn't hook up the blue ray player to the projector, so they had to cancel it and send everybody home.:(

    1. TheWolfandtheRose


      Maintenance! What is wrong with you? (not you goth Mainten). You were supposed to make sure everyone had a lovely time, and you blew it! Kitty had turned into a tiger and BIT YOUR ARM. Now you know how Goth feels. HISS.

      Shame it’s quite easy to attach a bluray player to a projector done it a few times at work 

    3. XxGothsCanSmile2xX


      @TheWolfandtheRoseLol!^^ It was a bit disappointing, but they felt pretty bad about it, too. In fact, the host of the event felt so bad that he even gave me a ride home just so I wouldn't have to walk in the snow. So, it's all good!

      @Moana of MotunuiThat's just it though, when the wires wouldn't work with the bluray, they plugged them into a regular DVD player just to see if they were functional, and it worked. So, thinking it was just a faulty bluray player, they brought in a brand new one right out of the box, and they still had the same issue! The projector just hated blurays for some reason.

  9. Post your Time Machine retrievals here!

    I just got the exact same toon for the second week in a row!
  10. First day of the film festival down! There have been a lot of deeply moving and inspiring films already, as well as others that were a little out there, but I am still really excited for the rest of it!^^ 7 more days to go!

  11. 2017 Spookiest Cworld Contest

  12. For that film festival I mentioned a while ago, I just got to make the Jury Prize award as well, and this is what I came up with...


    also Trick or Treat!^^

  13. OMGosh! I have just discovered white chocolate hot cocoa mix, and it is incredible!:headbang2:

  14. Happy National Cat Day everybody, meow!^^

    1. TheWolfandtheRose


      Hooray for felines!

  15. How many points do you have?

  16. We got snow here today!^^ Then the power went out for about an hour.

    1. Volcom


      I didn't get snow but my power was out in the morning too!

  17. Well, I'm about to put my cat into her carrier for her vet visit... Wish me luck!^^

    1. deepcanyon1


      good luck and hope everything is ok with her :)

    2. XxGothsCanSmile2xX


      @deepcanyon1Thank you, and she's fine, it's just her annual visit. The hard part was just trying to get her in the carrier!^^

  18. In accordance with my last post, here a couple of pics of my costume!

      Really awesome!

  19. My school held a costume contest today, and they determined the winners based on how the audience reacted to each person in the contest. The louder the cheering, the better your chance at winning. Long story short, it looked like I was about to win, until this girl in the very front row - who didn't realize right away that people where supposed to cheer loudly for their favorites - decided to make up for lost time by straight-up screaming like a banshee for the next three contestants after me allowing all of them to win instead.

    Now I'm not typically a sore loser, but right after the contest, so many people kept looking at me with sympathetic faces, and one girl - who happened to be an officiator of the contest - even came right up to me and apologized to me for not winning anything. That is how you know you got screwed over!

    It has just not been my week.

      @theflash999d Sure I'll do that, just give me a moment to take and upload the picture!^^

      @TheWolfandtheRoselol! Yeah, I wouldn't doubt if her throat was, I'm sure she'll need that lozenge!^^

      I wouldn't be surprised if that's why she did it, although, I got to say that one of the winners really did have a pretty cool costume. He dressed up as a video game character, and I swear he had every last detail down to a science it was that awesome! Even I would have voted for him for 1st prize over myself, but I would have at least clinched the second spot.

    3. Xavianangel


      I'm sorry that you lost, but at least you had the majority of the crowd on your side for most of it. It sucks that one person ruined it for you, but at least she's gonna have a sore throat a while. 

    4. TheWolfandtheRose


      @Xavianangel won't let me do the laugh face, so *laugh face*

  21. My teacher regarding my film project: "This is the kind of b-film I'd like to edit."

    Me *in my head*: "Translation: This is the worst project in the class." -_-

    EDIT: I decided to post it on YouTube if anyone cares to watch it.


    1. TheWolfandtheRose


      I want so bad to say something comforting but everything in my head sounds so lame.

    2. XxGothsCanSmile2xX


      @TheWolfandtheRoseIt's alright, just knowing that you're trying to be sympathetic is enough for me. Thanks!^_^

  22. This actually exists!

    This is something that I really have seen. Four-way chess... yeah!
  23. This actually exists!

    Have you ever seen or heard of something that seems so bizarre, you can't believe it actually exists in real life? Whether it's something totally weird that you think shouldn't exist, or it's something so awesome it instantly makes you scream, "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!" This is the place to post and talk about real life objects that simply blow our minds. To start, this picture is of an actual lamp that exist, and you really can buy. It is a hanging lamp in the shape of the famous 'question block' from the Mario games, and to turn it on, you actually have to punch it from the bottom of the block. Now it's your turn, what are some things you can't believe actually exist?
  24. My school hosts an annual film festival each year, and apparently one of the classes I happen to be in gets to make the award certificates for each of the categories. So we all drew categories from a hat to see who would work with what, and thank my lucky stars, I got to work on the award for 'Best Animated Film!'

    Now this is for a very artistic class, so it's more than simply printing out some text with maybe a fancy boarder around it. We're actually meant to get creative, as long as it still pertains to the category we got. Since I work best with/on computers, I whipped this up on Gimp for it...


    The boarders are storyboards of actual cartoon shows/films, I created a couple of lens flairs, got a few stock images for effect, and even added some of my own animated characters!^^

    Although, I should probably mention that the official finished product that I turned in looks a little different because I accidentally got the size proportions wrong on the boarder strips, which me and my partner printed first - and later accidentally glued one of them upside-down - but despite me telling him that I could fix it, my partner was just too lazy to print them again.

    Otherwise, feel free to tell me what you think!^^
