In fact, it is a picture of a famous Japanese singer who sang in an all girl pop group named SPEED during the mid to late 90s. Her name is Hiroko Shimabukuro. Hiro for short. Unfortunately, they disbanded several years ago. I recently found out they are back together and singing as SPEED. Freelance Union Article: 5 Tips for Preventing Procrastination.

My Purpose For This Blog Has Changed

Originally, I wanted to use this blog as a place to post finished as well as some unfinished artwork. Now, I've changed my mind. I will post finished art and WIPs (works in progress) here. Also, I may post some tutorials from time to time. The content of this blog is a representation of my skills as an artist/animator and a forum to share my thoughts with the world about things I find interesting. So, if you're interested I'll post a my opinions of two movies that premiered in theaters this year in a later post.

Studio 4°C: Global Astroliner & Kung Fu Love



Global Astroliner is about a futuristic policeman whose been assigned to go to earth which is now a prison planet filled with waring gangs. His orders are to find a girl named Lala who is a super pop idol. In reality, she is an artificial life form whose purpose is to keep stability in a chaotic world. During the briefing this lawman is told he's got to go down to earth to retrieve her. This is where the story begins. In my opinion, the graphical style of the characters are reminiscent of Jaime Hewlett's Tank Girl comics, and his more recent work on Gorillaz. The look of the layout and design is much like JGR - Jet Grind Radio and, JSRF - Jet Set Radio Future. (Side note: I'd really like to get the artbooks to both previously mentioned video games.) This anime is well worth finding. Unfortunetely, I didn't see it on the Studio 4°C website. If you'd like find out what they're up to here's the link to their site. http://www.studio4c.co.jp/english/ Studio 4°C was one of the Japanese studios responsible for animating the ANIMATRIX for the Wachowski Bros. I'm not sure which Japanese animation studio did the segment with the exploding ambassador robot but, at the time of animating that particular sequence on the very day that particular studio was animating that scene. There was talk of not having keeping it in the finished film but, the Wachowski Bros. said to keep it in there. I'm glad they did. I like action movies and action comics but, to see violence up close and personal is a much different story. No amount of movie violence can prepare anyone for the real thing.

Kung Fu Love is about a girl named Hanako Kichijoji who for a reason not mentioned in this video she is hated the entire world except for her boyfriend who agrees to alope with her. This is another film I would like buy sometime soon as the graphics and action are top notch. The singer singing the song in this video is from the pop group SPEED. I think it's Hiroko Shimabukuro. Hiro for short. My avatar is a picture of her. Anyway, there's not too much in the way of story that was shown to tell you about. You either like wacky storylines that eventually get to a more serious point or not. (Not wacky like Trigun.) Just give it a try you may like it.

I Finally Updated "The Look" of My Blog.

I hope you like the new look. In case your wondering no, the color combination is not being used in anticipation of Halloween. This is how my blog will continue to look from here on out. If any of you are interested in checking out Colors! DS and you own or have access to a Nintendo DS Lite here's the updated info on it. The following link will redirect you to the new site. http://colors.brombra.net/moved.php Recently, the creators of Colors DS! have changed servers and their web address changed as a result. Here's the new address for those of you who don't want to wait for the new site to load. http://colors.collectingsmiles.com/ Also, if you own or have access to an iPhone or an iPod Touch you'll like reading about Colors DS! for these Apple products. Just go to the App Store on iTunes to purchase and download. Enjoy.

The green in this post is yellower than the green in past posts. I'll try to find a way to change the previous posts font color to be more consistent with the font color of this post.
