Hi everybody I'm Sarah
I love to draw stuff, reblog many things from tutorials, concepts ,fanart and art.
I love cartoons old and new.
HEY GUYS WHY AREN’T WE TALKING ABOUT MARGARET WINKLER
Seriously, for this website, she should be hailed as a goddess. If you’ve ever watched some early cartoons, you may have noted the name M.J. Winkler as the distributor. This lady was pretty much instrumental in getting the early animation business off the ground, like you have no idea.
See, because when she was working as the personal secretary for Henry Warner—as in Warner Brothers—she kept telling him “hey, seriously, we really ought to be putting more money into this animation stuff, it’s really going to be big.” Warner shrugged it off, because hey they had cartoons of their own what was the big deal right? Eventually, she bugged him about it so much, he said if she was so into it, why didn’t she just distribute it herself? So she did, and with his approval she started her own production company.
For one, she handled getting Max and Dave Fleischer (Betty Boop, Popeye, basically masters of everything and did it all way before Disney did) into theaters, but most important to her was making sure Pat Sullivan Productions got a contract, because she saw Felix the Cat and knew that shit was going to blow up. They did! All of them had found success on their own, sure, but it was Winkler’s business sense that made them BIG. She knew where to make connections and put money. Her approval and support was vital for success in the early animation industry, okay?
Then she gets to look at this weird little cartoon from some dinky little business in Kansas City, of all places (pretty much all animation was in New York, back then), making shorts called “Laugh-O-Grams.” This specific short was called “Alice’s Wonderland.” It sucked. Wow, it was bad. The animation was cheap, repetitive, obnoxiously long, confusing, and dull. And bad. So bad. Wow.
Margaret, though, somehow, saw a glimmer of potential buried somewhere under the blandness. So she called up the head of the company, some asshole named Walt Disney, and told him that she’d distribute this thing and give him a contract if he went and studied some Felix the Cat and came back with something better.
Yes that’s right. It was her doing. She made it possible. I can’t imagine ANYONE else would have given that dreck more than a glance, but she goddamn knew.
Sidenote: a few years later, though, she got married to a man named Charles Mintz. Maybe if you watched Up, you might remember a guy named Charles Muntz. He was the bad guy. It’s not a coincidence.
ANYWAY what you need to take away from this is that Margaret J. Winkler is a wonderful beautiful person who made everything we love today possible and she was the first big female name in animation and wow what a boss so great

FusionFall Headcanon #5: Numbuh one becomes an Adult
This is a recent headcanon. I was wondering, since Nigel’s Father newphew, and since we know Father has dark powers, and his father had those too… what if Numbuh one is the same?
All happened on a normal day for the Townsville Park crew. While giving missions away, Fusion Max appeared from the Fissure and using one of the Heroes managed to get out of the Infected Zone.
Everyone started fighting; the Scotsman went helping the young recruits with the fusion minions, while Max and Nigel took care of Fusion Max.
During the fight Max did his best to protect the KND, saying that “kids should be protected by adults”.
Numbuh 1’s faith in adults started growing, and wanted to help the plumber, but all his attemps at attacking Fusion Max failed.
The sight of the friend in pain was too much, and what’s in the comic is the consequence.
Now for the power: in my headcanon, the “dark adult power” can be activated only if 3 requirements are satisfied:
1. Trust an adult;
2. Have the dark inside your heart -in this case, Nigel was hating the Fusion for attacking his friends-;
3. Hitting puberty.
In that moment, Nigel had all the requirements. Obviously, you need to have the power in your DNA since you’re born.
The fact his father isn’t like the rest of the family it’s only because he was decommissioned before meeting all the requirements. Once you turn like that it’s almost impossible to go back, because the power gets you and you start hating even kids. Of course it’s not so sudden, it becomes permanent after turning black at least 2-3 times.
Max managed to stun Numbuh 1 before it could go worse. When the KND opened his eyes again he was afraid this thing could compromise his position. Fortunately, Max managed to alter the memories of all who saw what happened, and promised to never reveal it.
Nigel started really to think that not all adults are so bad.
Hey guys, have some sharks I drew last year.
Cookie-cutter shark, goblin shark, and Chum the mako shark from Finding Nemo.
Because sharks are badass.
Concept art for Scaler (Gamecube, X-Box, PS2). It was a budget mascot platformer that no one played. Which is a shame, because this game was awesome. It had a world where everything was reptilian. Everything. And if you stepped through a portal into this world, you’d turn into a lizard. And one guy actually turns into a scary sea serpent in a pool of acid and it’s great.
Sorry for the really, really poor quality (except for the instruction manual scan), but literally the only way to find this concept artwork is to either own a copy of this now out-of-print and fairly obscure game or to watch a Youtube video that has a concept art slide show.
