read all about it here ==> www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-…
this is one of the reasons why i am constantly encouraging you people to try really hard to create some of your own original material, cus that is what's gonna get you your own money. sure you can do all the fanart in the world, you can even take commissions and have someone pay you to make fanart, but dont go out there and use someone else's material as your own and expect people to pay you for it, especially when its something huge and recognizable .. cus that just puts way more trouble onto yourself

i'm not saying that making fanart makes you unoriginal, in fact i am notorious for having a gallery full of Godzilla and other stuff, but my point is to know when to draw the line, cus there is a difference between fanart and ripping off someone else's product. 

it may have been an interesting concept, but now since he went about it the way he did, we may never actually see what this was intended to be .. except a guy living out his dream of wearing a Godzilla costume and working with Anne Hathaway .. idk it sounds like some nerd living out his filmmaking fantasies.

idk, take from it what you will, im just letting you know there are consequences for some things 
due to all these comics coming from a WIDE range of sources, i need some of you guys to explain some stuff to me (if you can) i have done so much reading and google searches but not enough to come up with good ideas since i have an art block. and ive been left with a TON of questions for each fandom, so maybe some of you guys who are part of those fandoms can explain some stuff to me .. also Wikipedia may not provide me with the answers so that is why i am here 
(I watched the entire 25 episodes of Cross Ange because the plot description on Wikipedia wasnt good enough)

for example: 

Transformers: 
- why do giant robots from another galaxy need to have humanoid facial features?
- why do robots need noses and lips? or a beard and a mustache? or ears sometimes? i mean a head, a body, arms and legs make sense, but everything else seems kinda pointless for their designs, why would a robot need a mechanical beard or a mechanical nose? or any of those other things? 
- what was the point of that whole war on Cybertron that's going on in the first place? 

Superman: 
- is Krypton home to a bunch of humans in space or are they aliens who look like humans? 
- did they come from earth or are there alien races that look exactly like humans?
- what theme is the attire on Krypton? are they supposed to be futuristic or classical-renaissance-ish?
- what was the Codex in Man of Steel for? does that carry the DNA of everyone on the planet?
- is superman a guy with superhuman strength or is he only considered that because he evolved on earth? 
- were Zod's henchman supposed to be super strong or were they just suddenly stronger because they arrived on earth? 
- if kryptonians moved to earth would they become a race of Supermen? 

Gamera: 
- what the fuck happened to the new movie?

Sonic: 
- where did they come from? are they experimental subjects with powers or are they just anthropomorphic animals?
- is Dr. Eggman just chasing a bunch of talking animals with powers for no particular reason? 
- is he not phased that there are walking, talking, human-sized animals? what is this, the Looney Tunes? (i actually like the Looney Tunes)
- what does Sonic need all those rings for? 
- does he fight or is he just fast? 

One Piece
- what year is it?
- are they modern day pirates or is it in the old days but with high tech magical stuff?

Clash of the Titans 
- are the gods up in the skies actual gods? cus for some reason they can die 
- are they humans with superpowers who choose not to live on earth?
- if they can control everything on earth, why do they still need to battle?
(just for the record, i'm Catholic but i do not believe God Himself is all knowing or all powerful, or even in control of our fate and choices, and i do not wish to have a debate about this, please do not bring it up or i will remove your comment)

Gargoyles: 
- if Oberon can do anything just by thinking about it, why hasnt he taken over the world yet?

Star Wars: the Clone Wars
- what exactly happened with the Zillo Beast?
- why does it have 3 fucking arms? who designed this thing? 
- is there a backstory for that thing? i cant find any legit information about it

Sailor Moon
- is there a theme for the series?
- who exactly are they fighting? do they just protect their little region of home or the entire universe? 
- if so, from what?
- is this a magic themed series or a techno-based adventure? also if they were built to fight evil why do they wear tiny uniforms?

Evangelion
- WHAT'S WITH THE FUCKING INTRO?!

(to be fair, i started watching Attack on Titan last summer, and i was not expecting people to die in the FIRST FUCKING EPISODE, and the intro was pumped full of evil terror and adrenaline, so whenever i watch any other anime about fighting monsters or people maybe dying, i hold it to those standards)
- why does the intro for a show about giant robots fighting giant monsters sound like a jazzy bar sung by a woman in a shiny dress? i feel like a rich business man getting drunk at a classy bar at the end of a day, not like i'm about to watch some monsters get blown up
- did this work for some people? if so then someone explain it to me 

Digimon
- i only watched a few episodes of the first series .. are they stuck in a world that doesnt exist?
- maybe i should watch more before i start asking questions 

Monsters Inc. 
- its a world of MONSTERS, where some of them work at a company named MONSTERS inc, and that some of them graduated from a place called MONSTERS university .. where they are judged on their ability to be scary
- meanwhile if you make it a story about humans then it would be called HUMANS inc, a world of HUMANS where some of them work at a company called HUMANS inc, and that some of them graduated from a place called HUMANS university ... where they are judged on their ability to be wasteful and kill other humans 
- idk anybody else see a problem with that? or do we just go with that cus its Disney?

Deviantart:
- why do you guys say "you're welcome" after someone says thank you? all you did was compliment their artwork, its not like you did them a favor 
- is somebody getting a boner from my comics? i get the feeling that somebody wants me to draw kaiju porn
- thats why i have to be super careful to make sure my stuff is not erotic 
- if you guys want me to give you a boner, you're gonna have to commission me 
- no that is not a metaphor for prostitution, everybody needs to work to make fuckin money, ok?!

Cthulhu
- is there an official image of this bastard?
- he has 2 arms, 2 legs, a vague man-like body and an octopus for a head with dragon wings.. except there's nothing but fanart on the internet 
- i have no idea what to use as an official reference .. would it piss you guys off if i just invented a new version? it wouldnt be big and tough though .. some of you nerds are gonna hate me
- also if he's so powerful and evil, why hasnt he killed us all by now?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
(the fact that they were originally intended as a joke means that i cant take it too seriously, but then again it has a huge-ass fandom so here we go) 
- why do  they look like men in turtle suits? 
- are they battling aliens or robots or magical monsters .. or just street mutants? 
- what's the theme? what are they going for?
- how did it get so popular? 
- also is there a reason they look like men in turtle suits?



ok so that probably didnt go as planned, but i hope somebody out there knows something .. im kinda skeptical about what kinda fan-based rage comments im gonna get but oh well.. its quicker than wikipedia apparently 

that is all :iconwhatthefuboomplz:
Golden Smacklejaw - 2015 concept by RoFlo-Felorez
Golden Smacklejaw - 2015 concept
Its been a long time since i've started to develop the designs on these guys a bit .. or at least one of em

this is probably the most iconic member of my little project, for a while its been left as a still-developing original story.

for now its known as Constellation Draco; a story about a parallel universe in which earth's natural history of evolution is rewritten by creatures of mythology, and the story of a Knight, a Goblin, and a dragon chick who work to unite the people and creatures of the world in an effort to create peace and balance, and the story of a modern day historian who aims to learn the stories behind the fossils they left behind. 

for years i've been working on this project, but only certain aspects have been developed here and there, mainly the designs of the dragons, making them more plausible and giving them exactly what they need to fly. most of it sacrifices the traditional dragon designs, but i hope to find new designs that allow them to still be awesome yet realistic. other aspects of the story have been developed over the years to give the story the meaning and impact it deserves, in order for people to understand why their work is so important, and hopefully change what it means to create harmony and balance despite the struggles of medieval warfare and conflict.

so for this old thing i kinda didnt feel like doing a fully rendered model, so i just made a chibified wyvern design with a few updates, cus all i set out to do was to find a good concept for a new color scheme. the golden patterns remain more or less the same, but i wanted markings that would fit a little bit better. maybe i'll apply this methods to the other dragons as well.


also check out SpaceTaco101's Spore version of my beloved dragon == > spacetaco101.deviantart.com/ar…

for those of you who wanna learn more about the story (for those of you who actually care about my original content) check here, its still developing ==> roflo-felorez.deviantart.com/g…

Constellation Draco and the Golden Smacklejaw belong to me, along with the other characters involved in the story. Spore version belongs to SpaceTaco101 :iconspacetaco101:

and now for something that will actually get me a job one day! Hooray!! 

here is the cleaner, slightly higher resolution flash animation starring Erica the 50's model and her message about being careful with high heels, now with sound and voice-over done by THIS mu-fugga right here == > :iconroflo-felorez:

leave a comment and stuff so that potential employers will think its legit and stuff, i wanna get animation jobs people!! 

animation: me 
voice over: me
characters: me
music: Megacorps Store ( Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando )
as of recently i've counted roughly 47 or 50 suggestions lined up at the moment ... and more are pouring in

i tried to get some out of the way by uploading 3 new comics at a time, hoping that it would clear out the list faster, but instead it just accumulated more comments every time i uploaded something. at this rate I predict that eventually i'll reach 100 within 2 months, and 1000 within the next year, by then i'll have so much that i can no longer count them

so i've decided not to care about em anymore.. i'm not gonna stress myself to get to every single one of your ideas. when i started i had maybe 4 or 8 that i could do, and i had a schedule in which i would get to them in order, but now i have way too many and i have been getting pretty heavy art blocks trying to do research and come up with ideas .. but not anymore 

im not gonna guarantee that i'll get to every single one, i'm just gonna pick and choose any random ones that i feel like doing and then go from there. of course the rules still apply, but as of doing a headcount on the comics, im not gonna worry about that anymore 

and i'm probably gonna hate myself for saying this but ... go ahead and leave as many suggestions as you want 

have at it

Wanna learn more about me? Wanna see more art pieces before they reach deviantart? Go to my photo albums and look for my art album. First add me as a friend so we could talk about art trades and collaborations :)
just tell me who you are on deviantart.com first :P

Link to my facebook page :www.facebook.com/profile.php?i…

Most people call me RoFlo, but since that name's taken on deviantart apparently, i had to add my gmail name to it :P

I'm studying to become an animator/conceptual artist/filmmaker (if possible) to work in various studios and possibly Universal Studios, with hopes of working on big projects and changing the world with some of my own original concepts.

my girlfriend is also studying to become an animator and we are both doing everything in our power to achieve our goals together <3

on this page you will see a lot of OC's, 24 different stories which contain a vast amount of characters, and also a high tendency for fanart mainly in the Kaiju area, i'm sorry but i'm also not sorry for that :P

btw i also run the Kaiju Ask Blog, if you wanna participate go here ==> roflo-felorez.deviantart.com/j…
- link to my tumblr to participate further ==>roflo-felorez.tumblr.com/

ALSO i'm taking commissions from time to time, but always ask just to be safe
- GOING RATES:
*light sketches in black and white pencil = $5.00 (example ==> roflo-felorez.deviantart.com/a… )
*sketches and flat colors = $10.00 (example ==> roflo-felorez.deviantart.com/a… )
*sketches and toned colors with highlights and shades = $15.00 (example ==> roflo-felorez.deviantart.com/a… )
*colored drawings with realistic designs and tones = $20.00 (example ==>roflo-felorez.deviantart.com/a… )
- and a $1.00 fee for backgrounds cus i usually leave out the backgrounds

Don't listen to people who tell you how much of a failure you'll be.
Don't change yourself because others say how unattractive you are.
Don't give up just because you've tried repeatedly to do the exact same thing.

It's your life. Make of it what you want, just be happy with the life you are given. Its life, and it belongs to you.
