Okay, sorry I’ve not put out more of the Transformers OC art here. We had Thanksgiving and then right afterwards, my ass got hit up with the sickness. Yeah, loads of fun. And since I was out of sick days and vacation days at work… I got to go to work sick, with sales reps breathing down my neck wanting stuff last minute for the holiday season. Woo.

Anyway, I’m feeling better now, and now even more so, because I went out and saw Moana today.

I’m gonna keep this spoiler free, but here’s the short of it…

This movie is beautiful. I’ve seen a lot of animated movies in my life. Seriously, if I wasn’t so much into being a comic artist, I would have pursued animation and be working at Disney, Hasbro, and Dreamworks like the rest of my friends. From stop motion, traditional cel to 3D. From low budget geek fests to high quality works of art to obscure European animations… I’ve seen a lot of cartoon movies in my 41 years of life. So I hope you believe me when I say… Moana may be the most beautifully and wonderfully animated movie I have ever seen. It’s been a couple of hours since I saw it and I’m still stunned out how utterly gorgeous it was.

The story is clean and concise as well. Story gets a touch choppy in the middle with a side-quest the characters have to go on, but really, overall… It’s pretty solid.

Voice acting is perfect and the singing is wonderful. I love me a good Disney musical and this is the best one I’ve seen since Mulan.  Usually in Disney musicals, there’s one or two musical numbers that’s falls a little short, and this one, like Mulan, does not have those shortcomings. (And yes, the Rock can belt out a tune with the best of them. You’re welcome.) There’s not a huge cast in this movie. It’s practically a bottle movie, with it being mostly Moana and Maui on a canoe for most of the movie. But damn, does it work and work beautifully. 

The short story is this: I cannot give enough praises to this movie. It’s the best movie I’ve seen this year. If you have even the slightest interest in seeing it, do it. You will not regret it. I know I’m planning on hitting it again.

Probably not happening. I have no real say over what goes on there anymore, and I'm not really associated with the group anymore.

I've been looking for the site but no such luck. Such ashamed because I really enjoy reading it.

I know. It sucks. But if it helps... There might be a little bit of closure coming up in a couple of weeks.

I've found last week this group:…
Maybe you know it, maybe not. But it's something that would be very good for you. You're a very good artist. ;-)
