Behind the Magic - Pacific Rim - The Kaiju

The way ILM brought the Kaiju in Pacific Rim to life is one of the most spectacular things I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing. Everything about the Kaiju is on point and no detail is spared. Even the way they animated the fat jiggling on Leatherback amazes me. I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again: the people at Industrial Light and Magic are truly the best at what they do.

INJURY

ddanvers:

a/n: Again with the screwing around with pre-PR characters. Duc and Kaori Jessop are the husband-wife duo who piloted Tacit Ronin. They don’t actually have personalities, faces, or even anything beyond their jaeger and nationalities, so here’s my take on them.

“No.”

Kaori’s rejection is sharp, her decision firm and quick as you please. Beside her, her husband snorts derisively and twists the steel ring around his finger, a nervous habit borne of the fact that he isn’t yet used to its presence. He brushes a gentle hand across the back of her neck, shrugging nonchalantly at the doctor as if to say, what can you do? Say no to her? Duc Jessop had always known that the Shatterdome in its entirety would cave in on itself if she willed it to be so.

A little while ago I held a giveaway for copies of my Mako Mori print, and I planned to give the first-place winner a small ink sketch in addition to the print. Weeelllll I went a bit overboard!

The winner, sweetlittlepuku, asked for a drawing of Tacit Ronin, the Japanese jaeger that only makes a brief cameo in the movie. I was daunted at first because mechs are waaaay out of my comfort zone, but I decided to take it as a challenge and do a full illustration, seeing how well I could translate a giant robot into ~my style~ without losing the spirit of the original design. Thankfully Tacit Ronin is sorta one of the more organic-looking jaegers to begin with, so it actually turned out to be really fun to translate the design into more flowing, streamlined shapes!

I hope you like it, sweetlittlepuku :D You’ll be getting a large print of this in the mail in addition to the Mako Mori print you won!

If anyone is interested in buying their own print of this, you can get one at my store, right here!

Master Angel Sabrin, the character I let my best friend, epic-artist-nerd create for the roleplay I do with another one of my friends. 

It was Just Because day today so I drew this for her. (Just because day means gifts for no good reason) I also had to sit through a party for a three year old so this was entertaining enough. 

Angel Sabrin belongs to her. Go check her art out her art is amazing. 

Art belongs to me ^^

*LOUD SCREAMING* ALEX I LOVE THIS SO MUCH YOU DONT EVEN UNDERSTAND. THANK YOU

No, Jack Sparrow is the entity of “shipping”.

Fun Story: My director kept telling me and my tenor sax buddy to play softer. No matter what we did, it wasn’t soft enough for him. So getting frustrated, I told my buddy “Dont play this time. Just fake it” 
Our Band Director then informed us we sounded perfect. 

To my readers: “p” means quiet, “pp” means really quiet. I’ve never seen “pppp” before haha.
On the contrast, “f” means loud, and “ffff” probably means so loud you go unconscious.

I had ffff in a piece once and my conductor told me to play as loudly as physically possible without falling off my chair…

Me and my trombone buddies had “ffff” and he sat next to me and played so hard that he fell out of his chair.
The lengths we go for music.

Okay yeah so I play the bass clarinet and the amount of air you have to move and the stiffness of the reed means it only has two settings and that is loud and louder, with an optional LOUDEST that includes a 50% probability of HORRIBLE CROAKING NOISE which is the bass equivalent of the ubiquitous clarinet shriek.

One day, when I was in concert band in high school, we got a new piece handed out for the first time, and there was a strange little commotion back in the tuba section — whispering, and pointing at something in the music, and swatting at each other’s hands all shhh don’t call attention to it. And although they did attract the attention of basically everyone else in the band, they managed to avoid being noticed by the band director, who gave us a few minutes to look over our parts and then said, “All right, let’s run through it up to section A.”
And here we are, cheerfully playing along, sounding reasonably competent — but everyone, when they have the attention to spare, is keeping an eye on the tuba players. They don’t come in for the first eight measures or so, and then when they do come in, what we see is:
[stifled giggling]
[reeeeeeally deep breath]
[COLOSSAL FOGHORN NOISE]
The entire band stops dead, in the cacophonous kind of way that a band stops when it hasn’t actually been cued to stop. The band director doesn’t even say anything, just looks straight back at the tubas and makes a helpless sort of why gesture.
In unison, the tuba players defend themselves: “THERE WERE FOUR F’S.”
FFFF is not really a rational dynamic marking for any instrument, but for the love of all that is holy why would you put it in a tuba part.

This is the best band post 
Everyone else go home

Oh man, so I play trombone, and we got this piece called Florentiner Marsch by Julius Fucik, and we saw this

which is 8 fortes. We were shocked until,

that is 24 fortes who the fuck does that

Who does that?

This guy. Take a good look - that is the moustache of a man with nothing to lose.
