I AM SO UPSET YOU GUYS HOLY GORGONZOLA.

So, you know every drawing you've ever seen me do ever? From the very first warriors episode to the last digital painting I did? All of that was done using the same tablet and gUESS WHAT JUST DIED TODAY.

It was eight years old. I downloaded ToonBoom and was learning to use it with tutorials anD MY TABLET STOPPED WORKING AND WORDS DO NOT EXPRESS HOW UPSET I AM I DO NOT HAVE 200 DOLLARS LYING AROUND TO REPLACE IT OH MY GOD.



I don't even know what to do right now I am so upset. Aw.

I'm gonna see if I can get like an "early christmas present" from a parental unit or something because I really don't have 200 dollars to throw around, and i know if I asked for one for Christmas I'll get it but I CAN'T WAIT TILL DECEMBER GODDAMNIT, I HAVE STUFF TO DO, FOR CEREAL, THIS IS NOT OKAY WHAT DO YOU EVEN DO IN THIS SITUATION NO.
Hey so... I got a new computer an Pencil doesn't work on it anymore so I'm looking for a new animation program. Does anybody know of any? I could get flash, but I don't want to work in vectors (that's mostly what flash is based in, yes?), and I have photoshop cs6, does that animate well? I've never been able to figure it out.

Let me know if you guys have any ideas ):
When I was a child, my mother took me to see the frozen carcass of a wolf hit in the winter. The train had cut the animal clean in half - it’s forelegs and head lay on one side of the tracks, it’s hindquarters on the other. It was petrified in time and perfectly preserved by ice, its mouth still curved into a startled snarl. Those tracks had scared me ever since. But they didn’t scare you. I don’t think anything did.
You held out your hand, bare feet on wooden planks and metal. Drunk on Birthday Cake Vodka (stolen from your sister), we’d tumbled into the forest in nothing but our bikinis and wandered to the tracks. You laughed and said you’d done it a thousand times, promised I’d love it.
I took your hand hesitantly. My palms were cold and sweaty - a fact which always made me self-conscious. You didn’t seem to notice as you tugged me down the twisting path. The rocks between planks stung as they poked into my feet and the metal was icy cold. You didn’t notice that either, laughing and talking the whole way through. I was silent.
Eventually the ground around us fell away into crumbling crags, and it was just tracks on support beams over water. Way down below us was the lake. The water was placid and still as ice, and it reflected the sky above with breathtaking symmetry. You let go of my hand and sat down, dangling your feet over the edge. I sat down too, but tucked my legs beneath me.
You told me that you used to come up here with your sister. You’d sit on the tracks over water until the last possible moment - until you heard the train’s whistle - and then you’d jump into the water just as it roared past. You said there was a kind of freedom in it you’d never found anywhere else. Your drunken tongue grasping for words, hands sketching shapes in the air, you couldn’t describe it.
“It’s like nothing can touch you,” you finally said.
All I could think of was the wolf. I told you I wanted to go back to the house, but when I tried to stand up, you grabbed my hand.
“We’ll do it together. I won’t let go.”
All I had to do was jump when I heard the whistle and the water would catch me. You’d be right there. You wouldn’t let go.
When the whistle blew, you jumped. It looked like you were flying, stars above, stars below, you were otherworldly, suspended in the sky, floating. Free. Untouchable.
But you let go.
Frozen in fear, I couldn’t move.
All I could see was the wolf.
You let go.
The tracks shook in the wake of the oncoming train.
You let go.
You splashed safely into placid water, shattering the icy mirror of stars.
Blinding lights, screeching breaks.
I couldn’t jump.

Hey, I'm Maddy.

I'm tribbleofdoom over on le youtube where I animate a show about wolves and a variety of other fluffy creatures so if that piques your interest, you can mosey on over there.

As far as the about me dealio goes, I'm pretty dull. That won't stop me from going on about myself for an hour, however.

I love me some Power Metal, Pagan Metal, alternative and indie moosic. I'm a ridiculously over-the-top fan of Bioware games (KotOR, Dragon Age: Origins, The Mass Effect Trilogy etc) but I love pretty much any RPG I can get my hands on.

I'm a huge fan of Star Trek, Farscape, Battlestar, Red Dwarf and all other sci-fi ever. Duplicitous as ever, Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones are also things I will devour with the hunger of a thousand ravenous wolves. Also, Avatar cartoons because shut up.

My favorite book is Harold and Maude and you should read it.

I'm an exceedingly shy individual, I get tongue tied easily, and I'm always sleepy.

I want to work in the film industry, and I've gotten into a program for screenwriting at university, so hopefully I'll end up with a job doing that. Preferably for TV. Because that'd be pretty sweet.

My goals in life include: Writing and publishing at least one book, living in New Zealand, traveling the world, skydiving, not dying until I'm old.

Anyway.

Say hi if you feel inclined. I don't bite. Unless you are made of chocolate. In which case I do bite. Sorry.

Narcissistic rant out.

PS -

AWESOME PEOPLE

Hi, I am one of your many fans. Ever since 7th grade I have watched your YouTube series of Warrior Cats and COTW. I was inspired by you to start doing more awesome drawings. I always showed my friends your videos and said,"Isn't this person awesome!?". I am pretty sure they thought I was crazy. I am going to be a Senior next year, and I still love your art. I am proud to call myself a follower of tribble-of-doom. I wish you all the best!

Sincerely,
             Your fan.

Hi there!

Thanks for watching! Yep, I'd be happy to help with anything you need :) I'm not really the best person to ask, but I can probably handle simple questions :P Otherwise you may have to ask a more serious artist. Anywho, yeah, ask anything you like :)

And haha, Rune's a big jerk, I don't know why anybody likes him.
