Hey guys!
Since I had a great time writing the factoids for one of my OCs, I figured I would do another one!
Once again, this just gives little facts about the inspirations and creation of the OC in question.
Today's OC? None other than my original OC: Ace the Silent Assassin! :love:
Ace and Gizmo: Improved Cuteness by animedugan
Alrighty! Let's begin!

Did you know that:

1. Ace's character is based on three different female characters: San from Princess Mononoke (her agility in combat as well as her serious nature), Makina Hoshimura from Corpse Princess (her fiercely independent personality and her need for vengeance), and Angela Cross from Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando (her masked persona as well as her name)

2. Ace's full name is Angela Dianne Cross. Her name was inspired by Angela Cross from the Ratchet and Clank series, and her initials are nearly identical to my own. (ADC-Ace's initials and ACD-My initials)

3. Ace was given a mask because I originally had NO idea what her face would look like. In fact, I never intended to reveal her face nor give her one.

4. Originally, I was going to make Ace a mute....unable or unwilling to speak. It wasn't until I met :iconnikolad92: that I decided to let her be a tad more social. :)

5. Not long after Ace's creation, I was introduced to the Portal series by Valve. I fell in love with the little turrets from the game, and decided that Ace would be given a little robot companion....thus Gizmo was born :heart:

6. Ace is the only OC that I intend to put into different universes. Three examples include the TF2 universe, the Samurai Jack universe, and the Jak and Daxter universe.

7. Thus far, Ace is the only OC I have that has gone through a change in both outfits and style of art.

That's all the factoids on Ace for now!
Hope you guys enjoyed, and take care guys!

Hey guys!
So just came up with a fun little journal that I like to call "OC Factoids" where I give you some little facts about a certain OC of mine :aww:
Today's OC will be: Aelita Eckhart Aelita: Ear Twitch by animedugan
Let's begin!
Did you know that:

1. Aelita was originally going to be paired with Leonardo of the main four in TMNT. That is, until I got to adore Raph's character. I felt as though he needed a little love~:heart:

2. Two characters that inspired Aelita's character are as follows: Aelita from Code Lyoko (her caring personality and her name) and Raven from Teen Titans (her powers of telekinesis and her darker "persona" while trapped on a Kraang ship)

3. Aelita's hair design was inspired by other fanart of TMNT on DA! It was a hairstyle for a 2k12 concept of the character Mona Lisa.  The link to it is here: tmnt-monalisa.deviantart.com/a…

4. Aelita's elder brother, Jeremy, is actually the name of a character from Code Lyoko as well....significant difference being that Aelita and Jeremy from Code Lyoko were boyfriend and girlfriend.

5. I wanted for Aelita's voice actor (if she ever had one) to be Tara Strong. However, after hearing Marceline's voice actor (from Adventure Time), Olivia Olson, sing and talk, I fell in love with her voice. I just had to pick it for Aelita.

6. I got Aelita's "ear twitch" habit from a Sonic the Hedgehog comic.
The link to it is here: www.deviantart.com/art/Twitch-…

Well, for now, that's all the Aelita factoids for today!
What are the factoids for YOUR OCs? Write it in the comments or make a journal if you wish!
And as always, take care you guys!

Hey guys!
Another little thoughts journal. On what, you ask?
Well, the title, as usual, says it all. The newest short film of Frozen called "Frozen Fever."
From what I have been seeing, there are two responses to it:

1. HECK YEAH ANOTHER FROZEN!!!! YEEEEEEAAAAAAH!!
2. NONONONONONONONONO!!!! WHY DISNEY, WHY?!?!?!?!

My response?

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... :shrug:

I dunno. I liked the movie when I first saw it....it was beautiful, nicely written, characters well developed and likeable.
But after a while I started to realize.....it's getting too overly hyped for it's own good. I mean, it's cute and all......but is it really worth such extreme reactions to it? I don't hate it, but I don't absolutely love it either, you know? I feel like this "new installment" is completely forced.....not like the movie itself. The movie definitely had some heart put into it. And I'm sure there was a bit of heart to it as well. But it feels like....one of those situations where you are forced to do something out of an intense amount of peer pressure, you know? To get people to shut up about making a sequel to it.

Well, in any case, I'm not too keen on them making a sequel to Frozen. (Please don't hate me for that ^^;) Sorry, but I'm not. Reason? Disney's track record of making absolutely TERRIBLE sequels to classic Disney movies. And I mean it. TERRIBLE. Let me give you some examples of this:

1. Cinderella II: Dreams Come True
2. Hunchback of Notre Dame II
3. The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea
4. Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure
5. Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas

There are many other examples, but I'll leave it at five. And only reason I haven't explained is because this journal would become longer than it should :X

Well, that's my take on it. What do you think about new Frozen installments?
If you'd like to share, post a journal or post it in the comments below!

As always, take care guys!

Hey guys!
Just thought I'd share something a little funny with you guys.
So today, I was wandering in the mall, just to see if there was something OTHER than clothing and Apple stores (no success in that department, obviously) when a sales lady from one of the kiosks stops me so I could try a free sample of something. I told her "No thanks," when out of the blue, she asks me my age.
I told her the truth (I'm 23).
Her jaw DROPPED. Literally. DROPPED. She had THE most surprised look out of anyone I have ever seen thus far. Apparently, she thought I was 15 or 16 from my appearance. And right then, I felt like laughing a little bit. It amused me for the first time in a very long time.
What's funny is that in the past, my younger appearance always bugged me. I wanted to "look like an adult" back then. In fact, it was one of the few things that bugged me the most, and had me overly self-conscious about my physical appearance. I feared that because of my appearance, no one would take me seriously.
Now, I don't mind it. I actually find it funny that people get so surprised about my true age. I even find it funny that I was even bothered by this at all.
I know this isn't hilarious or anything to most people, but I figured I'd share that little bit with you guys :)

Well, as always, take care you guys!

Yep, as the title implies, I'm going a little bonkers right now. Mostly because I am getting impatient with the progress of my PC being fixed.
I have sooooo much drawn and ready to upload, but I still don't have a means for coloring or uploading it!
Gaaaahhhhh!!! I really wanna uploadddddddd :X

Yep. My name is Anne Dugan :) I love drawing, and have loved it ever since I was a kid. I love to look at other people's artwork, and in each pic that I see, I know that everyone has worked hard to get them the way they are.
I hope you guys enjoy my artwork just as much as I enjoy yours :D
P.S. Do pardon the fact that my artwork doesn't have much background. I am still in the process of learning how to draw it :P
