Another GIF from the Korra season 3 finale.
More beautiful animation- I love how she twists as she takes off that rock pillars’ top.
There were some
insaneawesome shots in both episodes and great choreography for the action sequences.
This whole exterior action sequence between Korra and Zaheer is co-executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos’ storyboarding/fight choreography masterpiece, especially the 20-plus-second continuous flying shot. It was a herculean undertaking, and he had some help cleaning up a few of the scenes by Owen Sullivan (on this one) and Shaun O’Neil. If you didn’t already know it, Joaquim is a force of nature when it comes to action animation!

GoFundMe is allowing a campaign for people to donate money to Darren Wilson, the cop who killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.
When called on this, and how it violates their ToS, GoFundMe’s response was to delete the hateful, disgusting, racist comments from the donations. They refused to end the campaign. Apparently it is only “promoting hate, violence, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime” if people can see the deplorable sentiments behind the donations. Somehow deleting the evidence of those sentiments magically changes what those donations are for: rewarding a police officer for killing Michael Brown.
This is absolutely a direct violation of GoFundMe’s ToS, yet GoFundMe is refusing to act. These are people giving money to an individual that gunned down an unarmed black teen. He is profiting from this killing, and it directly promotes racial intolerance and violence. There is no reason why GoFundMe should allow this campaign to continue…
… Except that GoFundMe gets 5% of the cut. In this case, 5% of 235k is $12,500. GoFundMe and Darren Wilson both are profiting off the killing of Michael Brown, and GoFundMe has decided they’d rather take their cut of the money than follow their own ToS. $12,500 is apparently what it takes to abandon justice.
Please, join in the boycott of GoFundMe, and consider signal boosting this.

The online review Digibro spreads awareness of just how much anime depends on sales from SO FEW people, how we take it for granted, and how there are so many behind-the-scenes business horror stories that I wasn’t even aware of! Just be prepared for some really fast talking!
Watch it, for the sake of Digi’s broken foot!

Going on right now in Ferguson: Police are raiding a church that has been stocked with medical supplies, food, and tear gas recovery kits for community members engaging in protests. This cannot be allowed to continue.
Stand up, speak out.

＊ New commission post + more offers + lower prices + my situation. ＊
Thank to everyone that contributed to my last commission before the changes! As I’ve been practicing lately, and I think I’m able to handle more quality work in a short amount of time. I’ve also lowered the prices for a bit as well.
I was not able to address my current situation as to why I’ve been needing commissions because I felt a bit uncomfortable and I was hesitant releasing personal issues in the open, but I want to emphasize at how urgent it is now that I need money at this point.
- I have been away from home for almost 4 months without legal papers. Long story short I’ve run away from my abusive parents due to my mental illness and because of the urgency I left almost all of my belongings back at home including legal papers. I am currently living with a roommate trying really hard to pay for my bare necessities, and as grateful as I am, I do not want to rely on them too much. I need money to hold myself off since I cannot have a job without my SSN (my parents did not allow me to memorize it) as well as to afford new copies of my legal papers so I can get a job soon.
- I need mental help and money for medicine. As I addressed earlier, I’ve run away because of my mental illness, and this was because my parents that contributed to my illness did not support me and did not allow me to get help. As I result, I was forced to run away for the sake of my mental health. I need money to get professional mental help in the long run. I am currently in contact with my practitioner who is helping me provide pills for my illness, but I am not sure how I can keep relying on her for free any longer. I wish to pay for my own medicine to ensure that I get them since continued usage is important.
- Before I ran away, I was also recently diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease, or hypothyroidism, which forces me a new diet that I cannot afford. My diet consists of gluten-free choices, and because they tend to be more expensive than regular choices, shopping is very hard with little money. This diet is crucial because I am currently not taking any medicine for it, so the only way for me to improve is to adapt to my diet.
- I am paying for my own phone bill every month. A simple necessity, I need my phone for emergency purposes. My roommate has work and cannot attend to me 24/7 and I need to keep in contact with some family members and my practitioner. I need to make $50 a month to keep myself at bay.
And that’s all there is to it! I would appreciate any help you can provide and if you cannot help, simply reblogging or spreading the word would be great help!
And as always, prices are under the cut!
