THE BOOK OF LIFE
OH MAN I WAITED SO LONG AND IT WAS SOOO WORTH IT If you had any concerns about whether to see it or not, DO IT. You’ll be a richer person having done so
La Muerte tho, my perfect goddess, I am not worthy omfg she’s the best character in anything ever, I mean I love everything about this movie but oh my god. I hope Legacy comes out with a figurine, I don’t care how much it is, I have to have it.
Post for today: Carmen! Again, character designed by Sandra Equihua, I just do orthos / 3/4 view paint based off of her original art.
Her skirt was originally made of tiered wood like this, but was changed, I assume for animation purposes. Again, fun to paint this one because she is so colorful and varied in materials/detailing.
i think this could be useful for the people who is not totally sure about spend their money in this movie, it has their good and bad points, but generally is a great movie, so please, let’s show them that “An Hispanic story” can be as good as any other one, or even better!.
This is perfect! I had no idea they wanted to do a trilogy
GO SEE IT GUYS! WE CAN DO THIS <3
Support the hell out of this movie, everyone! If you love animation, beautiful art direction, helping small studios compete with the big guys (this was possibly the first ever major animated feature made entirely in Texas), POSITIVE REPRESENTATION IN FILMS MADE MOSTLY BY PEOPLE OF COLOR, and just plain entertaining movies, go watch it immediately.
Just a fraction of the cool stuff I learned when researching women’s history.
Rosalind Franklin did not just help. She actually discovered the structure before - Watson and Crick stole all the credit after building a stick and ball version of it.
The first known author and poet in history was a woman - Enheduanna.
The first known chemist was also a woman - Tapputi.
CAPSULE ANIME REVIEWS - SHOUJO KAKUMEI UTENA (TV)
I could literally spend the next 16,000 words on how much I love and admire this series but as this is a capsule review I will simply say this: if you have not done so yet, WATCH THIS SERIES IMMEDIATELY. On the mental list of ‘Masterpiece’ anime I keep in my head Utena has always been in the top 3 (the others being Evangelion and Millennium Actress). Richly plotted and often impenetrably symbolically dense, Utena takes what appears to be a standard Magical Girl story and weaves heavy questions of sexuality, control, and psychology into a thick woolen jumper of apocalyptic self-realization. Artistically speaking the animation is without equal. This is one of the most singularly unique anime ever produced and it was said that the producers didn’t understand what was going on but the ratings were high enough that they didn’t care so the series continued for 3 seasons of 13 episodes. (5/5)
I adore discussing Utena and watch the entire series once a year (I’ve been doing this since 2006, so 8 years) so if anyone has any questions or wants to discuss message me!
"Women are more likely to be attracted to personality and men are more likely to be attracted to physical appearance"
woah maybe that’s because we teach women to see men as people and we teach men to see women as objects
The Curse of Kazuo Umezu (1990)
idk why introverts have a reputation of being quiet and shy people who’d rather be alone. have you ever been friends with an introvert who’s decided you’re worth their time? we turn into the clingiest, most needy pieces of shit on the planet because there’s so few people we actually can stand
A Xibalba doodle that I took too far.
I couldn’t help myself, I just watched the movie today, and I’m full of Book of Life movie juices and feelings I cannot describe to you.
If you get the chance, go watch this movie, especially if you have a cultural connection to Mexico and the Day of the Dead. It made me miss my younger years when I lived over at Mexico and celebrated this awesome holiday.
Jorge Gutierrez always reminded me to be proud of my heritage, man.
