Steven Universe Pilot
Steven gets a hold of a magical time travel device and does what any kid would do - he uses it to make jokes. But toying with magic draws trouble to his sleepy beach town and Steven has to step up and save the day - with more jokes.
Steven Universe is an upcoming cartoon created by Rebecca Sugar, former artist, composer and director for Adventure Time. It is set to air on Cartoon Network in mid-2013. It will be produced by Cartoon Network Studios.
I love Adventure Time, so when I heard Rebecca Sugar was making her own cartoon I was waiting in anticipation. Filled with gems, magic, and action this show is a must see!
i loved this pilot!!!!
WATCH IT IT’S ADORBALE!! Augh, a fantastic cartoon I get to look forward to. And I haven’t looked forward to something with THIS much enthusiasm in a long time to come. Steven Universe is going to be my new favorite show~

O-oh wow… Now that’s the kind of sculpture I’d want to be doing.
Everyone on my Tumblr dash, PLEASE watch this. Especially if you are a creative artist:
Adobe is going to scrap their hard copies (disks) for their software (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Flash), and have you pay a subscription for the latest software called the Adobe Creative Cloud. $50 per month. Could you really afford such an expense in the long run?
This is really disturbing. Please hear what he has to say, it really is a serious situation for working artists. Pass this along so others may know about the Adobe Creative Cloud and how horrible it is.
Yep… Just went to see how much Flash costs. You know, to just buy the program? Guess what? After spending a while looking, it appears that you CAN’T anymore. You have to pay an outrageous subscription fee. I hate adobe. Is there a petition going around to stop this nonsense? Because I want to sign it.
Thanks! I know a lot of artists and people who like art follow me. You guys should go sign that.
Today I just signed the petition in the voice against the Adobe Creative Cloud. For those who are not familiar with what the new Creative Cloud can do to you as an artist, I really suggest you watch this video.
For those who have seen, reblogged, faved, here’s the link (as shown in the previous reblog) to sign the petition. Anything can happen, Adobe really needs to know that many artists are not supportive of them controlling not just the software..but the content worked on the Cloud.
Signed! Boosting the signal, I prefer to be able to buy my software.
I’m not going to fucking SUBSCRIBE to Photoshop. What the fuck do you expect me to tell people, “sorry, can’t do your commission this month. Couldn’t afford the Photoshop rent”?
This is why I use Corel Painter :|b So few people seem to and I don’t understand why. It’s so much cheaper, super versatile, and doesn’t have this bullshit surrounding it :/
we need some brilliant programmers out there to write something better than photoshop, maybe something versatile and open source? i’d crowdfund that.
Painter, Art Rage, Sai, Open Canvas + (my all-time personal fave… seriously, even after Fenden brushes, I still revert back to it), and even now Manga Studios are ALL wonderful alternatives to whatever the HELL Adobe has decided to do. Heck, you can even get add-ons to Gimp, I hear, and make it exactly like Photoshop.
As far as Adobe’s OTHER suite programs… I don’t know what the alternatives would be, but I’m positive there MUST be cheaper alternatives out there…
Hi guys I’m obsessed with this shit lately because I don’t want anyone to have unhappy, unsupported boobs like I did. Even if you think your boobs and bras are fine, try it. It will make a big difference in comfort, support, and shape, even if you have small boobs or big boobs. A proper fitting…
Hey ladies and all folks who wear bras!! THIS IS THE SHIT I’M ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT WHEN IT COMES TO MEASURING YOUR BUST SIZE!!
Thank you SO MUCH for putting this all into one article! I’m going to encourage sharing this♥ TIMES A THOUSAND!

SHARE TO SAVE TUMBLR!
- Let’s try and get 100k notes
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features. One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market. By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users. Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way. It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community. With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users. Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily. A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated. By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger. I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed. No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users. Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadilAs much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility. I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.
reblogging again for this ^
Please don’t touch Tumblr, Yahoo. :| I will be very upset. Chocobo-Strider is making some very valid points up there. Whatever happens, I don’t want the mission of Tumblr to change from what it is now… I and many others have growing, dedicated followers and don’t want to lose the community we’ve all build with one another.
In this video Joe Bowers, an animator at Disney, breaks down some of his animation from Tangled and Bolt. He talks a lot about exaggeration, anticipation, and acting so the scene and characters will communicate.
I can’t express how helpful this video is for 2D and 3D animators. It’s a good reminder that you have to caricature real life movements in order for them to communicate in the best way, so people get it automatically. It’s also important to remember that all movement is based on real life movement.
I plan on watching this video several times, for reference, education, and inspiration. Great stuff!
(I should also note that Glen Keane was a supervising animator, and directing animator for Rapunzel on Tangled, and at the beginning of this clip Joe Bowers refers to him as ‘Glen.’)
Wow, very great animation compilation! I really enjoyed how he talked through his thought process.
I sometimes feel like I should make a series of tumblr friendly tutorials on how to handle files/resize things/correct use of backing/handling font for folks who self publish/can’t afford to pay someone like me to do it for them. Kind of like this one.
Keeping this on my tumblog forever. Good, useful stuff ahoy!
