Okay, I need to write about this because some thousand people are bombarding me with requests with no idea about the pattern I'm going with in a particular sector of my keyblade arsenal, those being the Dreamworks/Don Bluth/Warner Bros/Miyazaki/Other-not-animated-by-Disney KB stuff. Some people take a look, they get all stoked, and they're like, 'ooh do digiMon and couragethe cowardly doge and frekazoyd and xiaolin xowdown and ghostbutters or ill die plzplzplz!!!!!!1!'
And I'm like
I get sick of saying no.
I say no, not because I don't like whatever the show is. It's because they're not FILMS. The difference? With films, it takes about 2 hours to gather ideas for a KB, and for shows I would need several episodes watched, and maybe a whole season or two just to play it safe, adding up to 10-20 hours. Barely worth it.
Plus, while there are lots of films, there are like ten times as many shows. I don't even have to do the math.
So yeah, for these reasons, I can't accept requests based on shows on cartoon network or nick or whatever.
I have done a couple though, I just need to be much more selective of shows that I do KBs for, and I do them for different reasons.
For example, I made Reaper Knight, a KB for Batman TAS, because soon after I made the Lego Movie KB Master Builder, I got to thinking, well if S D & G are gonna run into a lego Batman, they should probably know about real Batman first, and who better than the TAS Batman?
There's also Buffer Buster, my special Thomas KB, which I made for pairing up with I-Think-I-Can, and also I'll admit I'm kind of biased because the ol' #1 blue is one of my childhood heroes AND I DON'T CARE WHO KNOWS IT, SUCKERS!
Anyway. Point is I only do whatever not-Disney tv shows I feel like if I'm up to it. It also helps if they have a movie to go with them (Lookin at you, Transformers 1986.)
Besides, I'm saving the trouble for an arsenal of ARE-made-by-Disney Shows. Y'know, Gravity Falls, Gargoyles, Wander over Yonder, Ducktales, Recess, blahblahblah, and all that coming you way but those are for another day.
And really I'm just doing all this keyblade stuff because I'm waiting for my homestarrunner.com buzz to kick back into gear again.
Till then I'm stuck with Little Nemo, Paranorman, American Tail, Watership Down, Nausicaa, not in any particular order, keep your pants on people, uugh, the list keeps piling up, ratsa fratsa ratsa fratsa...
