The bit before you have to start ...

Damaged Protagonists

Banes at 12:00AM, March 31, 2016




A well written protagonist will generally have some flaws, starting out as an underdog of some kind, with lessons to learn and improvements to make over the course of the story.

Character Profile: JUGHEAD.

Banes at 12:00AM, Aug. 6, 2015



I'm not sure who the first fictional character was that I became attached to. The Cat in the Hat? Superman? Jason Voorhees, maybe?

In any case, Jughead Jones was somewhere in that early group of beloved characters. I liked Archie, and envied his dating life with Betty and Veronica ...

Banes at 12:00AM, July 23, 2015



Years ago, when I did my first animation and posted it online, looking for attention like always, there was one comment that made me defensive, annoyed, and eventually, thoughtful.

I had no idea about animation timing or any of the little rules at the time; I just wanted to do ...

THURSDAY FEATURE --> Servant of the Servants of God

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, April 26, 2012



The pope in the Servant of the Servants of God is an evil, rotten, unscrupulous, drunken bastard. And that's just where the humour comes in! He's horrible, immoral, deviant, racist, murderous, greedy, nasty, lazy and funny to laugh at. He's often helped out by an almost equally ...
