Discovering W.I.T.C.H.




My Personal History of W.I.T.C.H.

In 2001 during the year of the first released issue of W.I.T.C.H., I was a 12 year old girl still in the sixth grade and drawing anime style characters, such as Sailor Moon, terribly (I am self-taught in free-hand drawing and I have never took a drawing class). I didn't know of its existence until I saw a commercial about a new animated series called W.I.T.C.H. on the Jetix channel. At the time I didn't pay much attention to it because I was into "Digimon" ( and still am!). A few months later when it was mid-way through the airing of the first season, I got bored enough to watch an episode. At first, I thought that it was interesting and okay, but I wasn't entire hooked yet. A few weeks later after watching my first W.I.T.C.H. episode on television, my family took me and my younger brother to the nearby bookstore. There, I saw the American (slightly censored) version of the original comic series. At first, I thought that it was one of those silly comic adaptation from the animated series and didn't realized that it was actually the other way around until I did some research. I sat there in the bookstore reading the very first 6 issues compacted into 3 books and immediately saw how much of big difference it is from the animated series. I started to watch more episodes of the series, including the ones that I missed and I started to do some more research on its history. By then, I was officially hooked. I fell in love with its unique ways of story-telling and artistic style and I felt that there was a certain charm to it that I have never felt before.

After waiting months on end for the American released, I got impatient and went online instead. To my luck, I was able to find a gold mine of comic scans online and began to read those instead. After years of reading WITCH, I also began to notice the difference as it transitioned itself from one saga to the next. I noticed the changes in the art styles, then the story-telling, then the entire thing which, I admittedly think, is now crap (the changes, not the entire WITCH universe). What was once a magical experience, I find WITCH now somewhat tasteless and a shell of its former glory. There were some issues that I still think was good, while others were so terrible and childish that it makes me preferred its rival, Winx Club, more than itself (Yes, it's that bad). I am now very disappointed that WITCH isn't as great as it used to be, and I find myself criticizing some of its new issues even more. Some people might ask me, "If you don't like it, then why bother continuing to read it?" My only answer is because I can't find myself to hate it entirely. W.I.T.C.H. has been around for a while and I fell in love with it as a teenager. Although I do find that it lost most of its magical touch, there are still some moments which I thought was wonderful enough for me to continue reading.

After ten years, W.I.T.C.H. has changed greatly, but personally, I still find that it still has that certain amount of charm that I just couldn't discard easily. W.I.T.C.H. comics has been a great inspiration to me in more ways than one, and to this day I am grateful to it. After drawing countless works, I finally made a small switch to WITCH art style. Although not best at first (as I'm still learning) I suddenly find myself drawing my own W.I.T.C.H. fanart calendar series, started my very first fan-comic side story of C.H.Y.K.N. (WITCH's predecessors), and now I'm slowly developing my new idea for a full blown WITCH fan-saga (called WITCH: Dreams of Lusteria)!

The Croods (2013)

:star::star::star::star-empty:



I never did find much entertainment in most of the films that Nicolas Cage was in these last few years. Not since National Treasure did his monotone characteristic acting trait brought much joy to the silver screen. After years and years of underwhelming films which Cage played in, you have to wonder if he's really losing his touch or if he'll ever find a different career path in acting that could be as great as before. It's not until DreamWorks' The Croods that finally convinced me of his hidden talent: voice acting. Cage's many previous films over the last few years tends to be dull, stupid, and...dare I say it? Barbaric? Yet, it's ironic that an animated film about a family of Neanderthals struggling to survive the barbaric world did Cage's voice shine!

The Croods stars Cage as the father and leader of a family of six named Grug. After so many of their neighbors dropping dead like flies or being eaten alive, Grug insist that staying inside their dark cave for the rest of their lives is the best way to survive. They only venture out to find food from exotic, scary, looking animals. His understanding wife Ugga (Catherine Keener), empty-minded son Thunk (Clark Duke), ferocious baby daughter Sandy (Randy Thom), and unbearable mother-in-law Gran (Cloris Leachman) accepted this life as they cowered being their rocky cave, tell stories about dying, and scraps for eggs and scorpions for food for the rest of their savage lives. However, Grug's teenage daughter, Eep Crood (Emma Stone) longs to get out, explore, and bask in the warmth of the sun and hates the darkness of her home. Every chance she could get, Eep would climp to the top of the cliff to get one last view of the setting sun, hoping that Tomorrow will come.

Tomorrow is full of mystery and the unknown, and to the Croods...it's dangerous. Sure enough, tomorrow forecast the end of the world as the continental plates are shifting...which means that the Croods will have to venture out of the safety of their (destroyed) cave and find another safe heaven. Luckily, Eep meets another person named Guy (Ryan Reynolds) who is a step or two up the evolutionary ladder because he uses his brain to think up of ideas on how to adapt, hunt, and live. He promised to show them a land of Tomorrow where the light will always shine, and if you're a worrying father like Grug with a teenage daughter going off with a strange Guy, you're just fighting for territory and dominance. But in order to survive the end of the world, the Croods must venture across dangerous terrains with Guy whether they want to or not.

The Croods is a very sweet and creative film, filled with family dynamics and fast paced chase scene that might make you dizzy in a good way. Mixed in the concept of hunting/gathering and necessary survival with the discovery of fire is a fun way to show that old vs new is a great battle to animate. Cage's usual monotone voice is still there, but oddly enough when given to an animated character, seemed much livelier than before! He managed to give life to an overprotective character who constantly fear for the safety and survival of his family, forcing him to state "Never be not afraid!" But his rebellious daughter finds his old way of survival boring and would rather learn how to live her life fully and she sees that in Guy, a guy whose head is full of ideas from fire, tools, and shoes! Like Cage, the voice acting in this film are fun and lively. Stone gives that expected tone of a teenager who wants space and Reynolds brings some comical relief when he's squirming from the inside of his log.

As always, DreamWorks does well in the department of animation and art as the landscaping design of this film's prehistoric world is a dazzling fantasy! The exotic creatures and the colorful vegetation would definitely put Ice Age to shame. Combine that with amazing voice acting and a fun and dynamic story line, you got a fun film. I seriously hope that Nicolas Cage would consider doing more voice acting in the future because this was fun!

I was wondering if you could do a movie review on "Dolphin Tale"(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolphin_… ) and "Dolphin Tale 2" (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolphin_… ) That is, if you have the time.

Tag, quality  deviant, you’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! La la la la
