Dismantling my PC for a few day. I'll be harder to reach here on DA, but it's all for the best. When I return, I'll get started on something special for you all!
The Torch Of Freedom Leading The Way

Well, folks. Something different today. A "Promotional video (In English) that shows prospective immigrants a different side to the city of Universal Peace.

"If countries were to take a proactive approach in handling immigration like this. If they were to allow people unfettered access to their society, then the movements of goods, ideas and creativity as well as peace, will reign." - Roybolqi Raqaz, senator for Saoka Migam. Greater Bay Area Republic.

The Citadel - Kill Box
Today, in light of recent events coming out of Charleston, I put together a quick video that will demonstrate what perception, in my opinion, is all about.

First off, let me explain a few things:

In the story I'm writing, a Kill Box is a training arena the size of a huge warehouse. In it, one may see a replica of a city block, or a jungle environment; or even a forest bed. The idea being that soldiers entering the army or being  trained, can have a far greater understanding of combat than ever before.

That being said, this simulation isn't about war or combat, it digs deeper into our psyche to expose what perception is truly all about.

So here goes:

When you saw the first clip, what did you see?
From who's view do you think you saw it?
And how did you respond?

When you saw the second clip, what did you see?
Do you think this gave an overall picture of what you were seeing?
And how did you respond to the overall aftermath of this and the first clip?

I guess I'd say happy viewing, and leave your answers in the comments below. I'd love to respond in due order!

The-Port-of-Riches
Isaac Thomas Riley
Artist | Hobbyist | Film & Animation
United States
From Boston, Massachusetts. Born and raised.
I am a starving artist and lover of love. A decent human being who wants to be loved and adored not by many, but by those few who've chosen to stay.

I was born in April of 1990 to a mixed-race family. My mother is Puerto Rican and my father African-Brit. Me and my brothers are as close as can be. (My baby step-sister has nothing to worry about.)

For most of my life, I designed and created music and literature. Only recently branching out into the joys of 3D animation. Like all youngsters with Asperger's, I thrived in my own elements of knowledge building and hard work. Unlike most youngsters, I was unable to read full sentences till I was nine, and yet I ended up thriving as a writer today. Middle and high school was rough for me. Bullying both social and racial bred resentment in my peers and ultimately friendship in some few who dared explore my mind.

College was even harder as I started to venture out into the world dealing with Schizophrenia and my dual diagnosis of Asperger's and Autism. But yet I continued to thrive. After a short crisis in high school, I vowed to push myself as hard as I can in a positive direction, and with that I have been successful.

In my formative years with 3D animation, I took care of three dogs (Huska, Goyo and Munchie) as well as two cats (Jasper and Alice.) I nearly fell through the cracks by the time I started college, but pulled myself together with help from my few friends. Quiet and philosophic as some might say, I've developed a close relationship with few people - all of whom continue to guide me today.

I've never had a romantic relationship, as I've found myself too immersed in my hobbies to have one, but as of late, since moving to Raleigh North Carolina and having no friends around to assist me and my mother/guardian adjust to life down south, I've found myself seeking someone to hold.

My new challenges are tough ones, but I'm sure that at some point I'll overcome them. I want to go back to school for writing and music theory to have better tools to develop my two greatest interests, and I also want to start having a small social life down here in Raleigh. Maybe also start working to help pay the bills in the house.

But like all challenges, I will overcome, persevere and grow. Hopefully there will be more people to help see me grow down here as there are up north.

So I leave you, my friend, with this. What's in a name?
I = Innovative
S = Smart
A = Accepting
A = Accomplished
C = Caring

T = Talkative
H = Hopeful
O = Outspoken
M = Musician
A = Able
S = Safe

R = Respectful
I = Impressive
L = Loving
E = Explorer
Y = Youthful

I love the colors scheme, but I do feel that you could use reference stocks to make the character's pose a little more realistic. But since it's a first try, there are no complaints here. ^_^
Really, I'd say, once you feel more comfortable with your growing talent, that you can return back and redraw 'Jessica" again. Does she have a back story? It'd be interesting to learn a little more about her, too.
