Hi, I'm Tale Do!
1st Year at Sheridan Animation. I draw and post lots of things related to animation, books and Evangelion.

Hi, I love your art! I was wondering what kind of black ink brush you use that leaves such nice, grungy strokes? Your lines are so beautiful ;~;

Hi! I’m glad you like it, thank you. I use both of the Pentel brushpens, also Microns and the Pilot G-TEC 4!

inkmeister asked:
what kind of pencil do you use? i notice it leaves red marks behind, and seems really useful...but i dont' know if it's something special or not?

Oh, that’s a Prismacolor ColErase! It’s a regular color pencil, just a little waxier and easier to erase :]

In other words, I love you

I stared at volume 14’s new cover before something hit me like lightning.

Even as I mentally slapped myself for even having the GALL to consider this, I just… this can’t be, can it?

As some of you may know, I had the honour of briefly meeting Mr Sadamoto last September. In that meeting, besides a letter expressing my gratitude, I also gave him a color print, a close up of a smiling Shinji in his outfit from Evangelion’s final chapter. At that point, that outfit did not have a color scheme yet - the last chapter had been entirely black and white…

In the article describing the meeting, I wrote “I probably won’t ever find out what happened to my letter, or whether my gratitude got across - but that’s alright. Whether he knows it or not, just being able to meet him made me reassured on a lot of things I’ve been worried about lately.”

Honestly, I feel silly for even thinking or writing about this. There is absolutely no reason why he would have kept that print or even go as far as… there was snow to begin with and that shade of blue just fits the bill… but that doesn’t stop the devoted fan in me from feeling immense joy (and a bit of delusion)! I sure hope they will make a figure from this beautiful illustration.

It’d be nice if my little sister could also enjoy what I create someday! (We were supposed to create a title card for our animation.)

Disney came over today to present their newest hybrid short, Feast. They showed us a bunch of production art from the movie (beautiful color keys ahhh) and a few from Frozen, too. I really appreciate how much effort the creative staff put into this, there’s never enough of deliciously animated food. Thank you for taking your time to come! (and this inspiring poster)

1st Year whiteboard. This just randomly popped up one morning and kept growing... masterpiece 1st Year studios. The higher on the food chain you are, the bigger your workspace! As we're the wide-eyed greenhorns, we get the cute tiny one. One of the classrooms. Sheridan's program teaches classical animation! Pegbars and paper, baby! Our second year senpais threw a potluck party for us in their (huge) studio. These are the super cool Crayon Warriors. Life drawing! The school screened Disney's Hunchback today, with our layout teacher, who incidentally happened to be on Hunchback's staff. He showed us original production sketches, wow!

A small peak into the facilities and happenings around Sheridan College’s animation crowd. The assignment pace is murderous and we’re dedicating all our time outside classes to studio work, but everyone’s been doing splendidly. Is it guaranteed that the school will turn you into an amazing animator? Who knows, but they do a great job at providing us with a 24/7 environment to grow in!
