Un monstre à Paris


Honestly I have never wanted to speak french, live in France as much as I have now seeing the trailer and snippet of "Un monstre à Paris"
What is this you ask?

Well let me illuminate this amazing film.

Paris,1910. Emile, a shy movie projectionist, and Raoul, a colorful inventor, find themselves embarked on the hunt for a monster terrorizing citizens. They join forces with Lucille, the big-hearted star of the Bird of Paradise cabaret, an eccentric scientist and his irascible monkey to save the monster, who turns out to be an over sized but harmless flea, from the city's ruthlessly ambitious police chief

"Un monstre à Paris", Le film
Réalisé par Bibo Bergeron
Le 12 octobre en salle

Eh? Ehhhh!? You can't be serious can you Rachel? Indeed I can and will! This is amazing! I want to own it. The designs are beautiful and capture all who wish to watch. The music is the baseline and the animation pushes it forwards.

Here is the musical snippet along with the trailer. Both in French and no subtitles but so worth it. So can I get some feedback? WOULD YOU WANT THIS!?

PPS - Within ten minutes pushed this out. Hehe...had to do it. The music makes me want to dance.

Champion of Kirkwall - Ruth Hawke

Indeed, I have holed myself up for a long time playing Dragon Age 2, one of my favourite games created by Bioware, coming in a close second to Mass Effect. Now at first I was a little peeved off with how the options became limited from three different races and three to four different options within that to three options and you had to be human...but my imagination got the better of me and I fell in love with the story as well as the designs. Qunari are my new obsession so expect some drawings of them shortly. However here is my character Ruth Hawke, a warrior -Tank class who defeated the Arishok with a single blow to cut off his head. Not a pretty woman but boy does she know how to party.

I am so bad at keeping promises...

Honestly. I am, I was so determined to post regularly and then work was all like 'let's boost your work to nine hour shifts.' I like the money, but besides that and sleeping, doodling in sketch book and no working scanner...screw it, making excuses won't cut it. Here is a cleaned up sketch of a style I was working on. Henry Bianco, a prince among commoners.

Oh God I'm ALIVE?...

Indeed, I should realise that perhaps my life might be better...influenced by my peers and other respected followers by letting them see actual work I do rather than hiding it away on my computer and crying to myself in wondering what is wrong with it. From now on I am posting at least twice a week with my own stuff. Or more.

So here it is my friends. My first shitty drawing for the...month? I shall say this is April although it is still about 9pm March 31st...WHATEVER! Tell me what you think? Have I improved? What shall you give me in wisdom and kick the crap out of it so I might improve.


Rachel Out!

Tim Burton has nothing on this....

Now, not saying that I don't admire Tim Burton but really, he ain't got nothing when going up against American Mcgees' Alice. This man is a pure genius in making the horrible, twisted version of Alice in Wonderland into a kick ass game. I adored the first one although at the time the graphics would have been called poor, something about a knife wielding Alice, bloody cards and a twisted Cheshire cat just...reeled me in.

After many years it is finally revealed that the new game; Alice: Madness Returns is going to be released which makes me tickled pink. The story continues from the first. Alice had been put into an insane asylum due to her parents death in the house fire, her wonderland is her sickness, she kills the red queen to save not only herself; mentally, but the rest of wonderland...and so she leaves the asylum free of insanity...or so we thought.

Returning to the streets of London, it is clear that Alice has started to regress back to her old ways. Memories blurring reality with her imagination...which soon calls upon the wonderland to return. Here are two of the trailer teasers that make me giggle with glee...gotta love the 3D animation. Enjoy!!!

The blood and teeth are nicely done!...Although I think she needs to see a dentist...

Happy Tree Friends - So cute it hurts...literally

I've always been impressed with Happy Tree Friends, for not only surviving as an Internet cartoon but gaining enough hype to become a well known cartoon on tv as well. For a short period of time. This small clippet of my favourite character, is a tale of a Buddhist monkey in a library...seriously kicks ass.
