It’s wrong to be attracted to an animated fox, right?

This is the “Target Practice” sericel released by Disney for collectors (a sericel isn’t an original production cel from the film itself, but a limited edition issued from the original animation art). Several of my fellow Robin Hood appreciators have this piece, and I sometimes set aside some time to just…appreciate it. And appreciate Robin, of course. Forty years later, my crush on him remains as strong as ever. But I digress. Take a look at Robin and Skippy’s aiming stances. Going under the assumption that they’re aiming at the same target, I feel sorry for whomever that might be. Let’s further assume the target in question is about Robin’s height. Skippy, being seven years old and probably not a very skilled bowman, will have a weaker shot than Robin, and his arrow is probably gonna drop a little on its way to its target. Which means some poor bastard is about to take an arrow directly to the crotch. Robin’s arrow, on the other hand, is likely to take a straighter course, since he’s both stronger and a master archer—hell, even his broken arrows hit the bullseye, as the movie illustrates. His arrow’s gonna hit the intended target right in the throat. Neither of these are necessarily kill shots. You might consider that a good thing, since it’s generally considered better to shoot to wound and/or distract than to actually kill—but the intended target, at best, is gonna wind up castrated and voiceless. I think I’d rather be dead. O.o I’m not really sure what my point is here, or even if there is one. It’s just one of the places my mind tends to wander. Basically, if you go by this pose alone, both Robin and Skippy are kinda sadistic bastards. Don’t care. I’d still do Robin in a heartbeat. C: EDIT: A friend of mine helped paint a vivid mental picture. Imagine the Sheriff of Nottingham writhing in pain on the ground, slowly choking on and drowning in his own blood, screaming in a high-pitched squeal as he tries to yank an arrow out of his groin. Pure Disney magic! You’re welcome. C:
DISROBIN’ HOOD! Um, Robin…I can’t help but notice you still have clothing on. Fix that. Now. C:
Clear has recently demonstrated how not to deliver customer service. They lied about a known coverage issue, and took six weeks to tell me they could no longer provide the service for which I was paying.
For almost two years, my Clear connection was fine. On October 17, 2013, my 4G router started having connection problems, and was offline more than it was online. I’m a freelance writer, and need a reliable connection; if I can’t do research online, I can’t meet deadlines.
I called Clear, who said it was a tower issue, and there had been other similar complaints in my area. (The local tower is less than a mile from my home.) They’d issue a “Level 2 Technician Ticket,” and the problem would be fixed within 24 hours.
It wasn’t—and as you’ll see, never will be.
Over the next six weeks, I called Clear several times, as my connection was getting worse. Eventually, I was lucky to have 30 seconds of Internet access before the router would lose its signal. Every time I called, I got a new story—or a rehash of an old one. Among their many excuses:
Faulty Ethernet cable (this was replaced twice)
Faulty Ethernet card (this was also replaced)
Faulty power cord (power was clearly getting to the device)
The router needs to be unplugged and plugged back in (this was done dozens of times)
The router needs to be fully reset (again, this was done dozens of times)
Bad weather (the weather was usually clear, warm and windless)
Faulty Internet browser (I installed and tried seven different ones, with identical results)
Router position (I moved the router to every location I could in my apartment—no change)
Your entire state is notorious for poor coverage (!)
Bird migration (!!)
Clearly I was doing something wrong! (I’m not perfect, but I’m also not stupid. When you try something a tenth time, it’s not gonna work that time, just like it didn’t work every other time.)
When they thought it might be the router itself, they replaced it—to their credit, free of charge. But it didn’t work. The whole troubleshooting song-and-dance started again; they even had me reconnect the old router! Whenever I suggested the local coverage might be lacking, I was firmly told that was not the case.
After six weeks of frustration, I was finally told, due to “tower re-sectoring,” there was no longer reliable service available in my area—and this had been a known factor from the beginning. I asked when it would be fixed, and was told, “It probably won’t.” I was screwed—and had been all along. And they knew it from day one.
It’s a lesson learned, and one I felt compelled to share: Clear is not only unable to deliver what they promise, but they’re cool with lying about known issues. That’s unacceptable.

Over the past few days, especially on furry-themed Tumblr accounts, the images from CrocPond have been going semi-viral. For good reason, too; it’s really good character design and animation. Sadly, however, it looks like what you see online is all you’re ever gonna see. FatCat Animation out of Tempe, Arizona was the studio that created CrocPond, and due to a bad economy and corporate mismanagement, it looks like they’re permanently down for the count. You can take a look at two in-depth looks at the situation by clicking HERE and HERE. It’s a shame, too. Just from the strengths of this video trailer for Dex’s Gym alone, it looks like it would have been something really nice. Unfortunately, animation is really expensive, and if you’re a small studio, getting a project off the ground can be a tough climb. On a personal note, I’m sad to know we won’t see more of Dex. He is one sexy kangaroo.
I noticed in the notes to this photoset that no one really linked to the source. This is some great, expressive animation, so I thought I’d fix that. The kangaroo character is named Dex, and the animation studio is called CrocPond. Click on the name of the studio for their web page.
HOLY CRAP those expressionsssss
WHAT IS THIS FROM???
I DO BELIEVE I HAVE A NEW MAN CRUSH NOW <3
must know more =D
Yoshils recently commissioned me to color and shade this picture that Ressie drew for him. It’s the first time I’d ever colored anything by Ressie, and it presented some new challenges—but I think it came out pretty good, and they’ve both given their permission for me to post the final result. Yoshils finds out that no matter how huge you may be, there’s almost always someone bigger!You can view the original line art for this image by clicking THIS LINK.Line Art, Ressie © RessieYoshils © YoshilsColoring © Cashew Lou
HAPPY 40TH ANNIVERSARY TO ROBIN HOOD! On November 8, 1973, Walt Disney Productions released their animated feature Robin Hood. It’s become one of the staple movies to many in the furry fandom, and for good reason, I think; it’s an ideal example of engaging and enjoyable anthropomorphic characters. I remember being a lad of eight years of age when Robin Hood came out, and initially I was excited to see it because I was a huge Roger Miller fan—in fact, I still am. Miller’s songs are wonderful, no doubt, but the reason I became such a hardcore fan of the film is Robin himself. I love his personality, his character design…and Brian Bedford’s voice was just perfect for him. He was my biggest cartoon character crush back then, and still is, four decades later. I could gush about this movie—and its title character—for hours, but suffice it to say I will always and forever be a Robin Hood fan. I am happy to see its reputation is still solid after forty years.
I’m happy I got permission to post this one; I love coloring Ziude’s work, and this pic really pushes my buttons! Big, buff fox Listix does a few squats with some…motivation down below.

With the kind permission of those involved, I’m posting this coloration of this image that Fairbank commissioned from Cooner. It looks like that serum Jakebe is holding is VERY effective! Will Toga’s posing pouch maintain its material integrity? Do we want it to?
