TarriPup's Profile Picture
Tarri / Dreamstar
Artist | Student | Film & Animation
New Zealand

Name: Tarri (nickname)
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Blond
Birthmark: Red triangular mark. Turns purple in the cold.
Occupation: Student

Senior Student currently living in Invercargill, South Island, New Zealand, in my last year studying the Bachelor of Digital Media - Animation (Degree).

From the township of Dargaville in the Winterless North, on the island of the... uh... North Island, New Zealand, I gained my first Diploma in Digital Multimedia Production at Northtec in Whangarei (NI, NZ) before trading the warm-to-hot part of Aotearoa where no one knows what a winter is, to the most southern city this island archipelago, situated at New Zealand's butt.
But this butt blows no greenhouse winds to keep us warm - instead, I live in a realm of polar winds blowing in from the Antarctic, and where hail is bountiful.

I continue to study and live here, wondering what the hell I was thinking.

Along with the excitement of animating and drawing, along with the personal hell that are essays and research projects, I am also a published graphic novelist - sadly, not for sale under conventional means, and only one volume published at this time.

My goal in life is to get my art to awesome specs and to write awesome stories.
And possibly animate the hell out of them if I have time.

Summer Wrap-Up

I had plans for summer, yes - nice, juicy plans. At first all seemed to flow as it should - flew back home (using airplane power), doodled a little for the 3rd Year Animation Project (I wanted to have it all sussed before the new school year started), followed by a lovely Christmas and a great New Years.
Following that, the plan was to continue the concepts for the project, and begin the next chapter for Dreamspace/Splash.
This did not happen.
Into the New Year, with stress already on the family due to... parasitical natures, and the concern of my Nana (my father's mother), my Uncle suddenly collapsed and was rushed to hospital. He passed away, and it was pretty painful for us all.
Things got better from there [sarcasm], another uncle of mine suffered the same ailment as the one that passed away, luckily it was not as severe and it was successfully operated on.
My Oma (my mother's mother) broke her hip and needed surgery (this was when my uncle died, aka her son, and she woke up from surgery to that news).
And then I wake up one morning to Mum frantically on the phone to 111 - my Nana (my father's mother) had lost consciousness, and when we lay her down it was like she was staring into nothing.
And then she stopped breathing.
And we thought that was it.
But she started again and regained consciousness - I swear to god the universe can be a cruel bitch.
This all happened within 3 weeks as it was.
So... sorry if I haven't been very active or responsive to you, it really has not been a fantastic ride.

Animation Concepts

With my current papers, my animation project will not go ahead too quickly, but I am back at SIT and I have been drawing up some concept art, and doodling more ideas for the proposed narrative.
Nothing new really, apart from some concept art of the character I want to work with.

Game Cinematic Project

An exciting and interesting project in the works is a gaming cinematic - a couple of meetings have been had, and some basic ideas for the game, regarding characters, the world, and the basic feel and mechanic of the game will be.
Don't ask me for specifics - this is only the baby stage so far, and a lot of it is hush-hush.
But it should be an interesting project, for sure. :meow:

Dreamstar's Story - Continuation and Revamp

My little My Little Pony story which I started back in about 2008 or 2009 is something that has been neglected for a while, now. Can't really be helped - after all, there are many things happening which have kept me busy busy.
The story has somewhat paused, due to me deciding some elements should be changed in the chapters which are currently up. This includes an additional angelpony trait which I only hint at, and the swapping of family ties.
What family ties, do you ask? Well...
In the original version, Ruby is Seashell's cousin. However, I have decided it would make more sense, given the names of the characters, that Ruby should be cousins with Treasure. This means I have had to go through the chapters and reorganise interactions, dialogue, and indications.
This will actually add some extra sense into the story later, believe it or not - since Ruby only just arrived in Seasons, and the friendship between her brother, Crest, and a friend of his (who has yet to be revealed to you guys... patience, people, patience...) for a longer period of time, I can imply that Crest has lived in Seasons longer than the rest of his immediate family, and can also give the viable set-up that he stayed with his cousin Treasure.
...but he tends to sleep elsewhere *COUGH COUGH HIS FRIEND'S HOUSE COUGH* and yay~
Yes, I did imply that.
It's a teenage story.
Duh. =P
I will begin submitting the updated chapters as soon as I can.
Sexy sexy times~


That is my update.
Look forward to updates on some stuff on the odd occasion.
Oh and try to submit more art, but I will be busy this year, just a fair warning.

  • Mood: Hurt
  • Listening to: Homestuck
  • Reading: Bittersweet Candy Bowl
  • Watching: Chris. He is up to something...
  • Playing: Pokemon X
  • Eating: Student food.
  • Drinking: Student fluid.

This was a neat quiz. Guys guys, take the quiz and COMMENT what you got, and I MIGHT draw up a collage of some of us as our legendary selves! Which Legendary are you? --->… 

19 deviants said I am a Hoenn Legendary!
5 deviants said I am a Kanto Legendary!
5 deviants said I am a Sinnoh Legandary!
5 deviants said Not taking the quiz.
1 deviant said I am a Johto Legendary!
No deviants said I am a Unova Legendary!

Look just leave me alone!

Oh, so you decide to launch an unfair assault on someone, and then suddenly, when it comes back on you, you're the victim?
Doesn't feel nice, does it?
Well guess what! You brought this on yourself, there will always, ALWAYS be retaliation, there will ALWAYS be those that will feel sick at the sight of injustice, as such as you have provided other people to launch their collective defenses for Mel against you, and just seeing your responses made me sick to my stomach, to the point that I needed to actually waste my time on the likes of you. Not because I wanted to actually gang up on you, but because I can't sit idly by while you vomit such bile against Mel. You need to back the hell off and get the hell out.
If you have nothing good to say, then bugger off, no one needs the likes of you to make their lives shitty for any undeserved reason.

And word of advice.
If you ever decide to pull this kind of sick stunt again in a public place, you are going to have said public on your case.
So don't be such a damn fool, you bring this all on yourself because you don't think.

I doubt this, but I feel the need to ask, do you happen to take requests?
TarriPup Mar 15, 2014  Student Filmographer
Could you specify more? As in, I assume for art... do you mean requesting art trade, commissions, or are you just after free art?
Tibby-san Mar 15, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Trade or even free art. :meow:
TarriPup Mar 15, 2014  Student Filmographer
Free art is extremely unlikely - usually in terms of free art they are gifts for friends and people who I either respect greatly or have done something for me I greatly appreciate.
The reason I don't do free art is because I don't have a lot of time for personal art, heck sometimes it can take me days to finish a piece of art... not because it takes me a long time to do art, but because of how much time in the day I have - being a tertiary student doesn't really help in this freedom, especially in the final year of a degree. Hell, it's Sunday and I plan to go in to work on some assignment stuff... I now know not the meaning of breaks. xD

Art trades are not much more feasible given time constraints of the same reasons, but I would be a little more inclined to do art trades since it's like getting a little present in return. :meow:

Commissions I will definitely consider, though - since as a student I always need money, lol. I considered a part-time job while studying, but that would only hurt what time I need to study and work on my papers (some of which I am not too thrilled - Media Culture? Research? Anyone got fire for these?)... so I'm sorry if I have disappointed you, I mean I'm keen at the prospect of people wanting ME to do art for them, it makes me feel as though my art is actually worth something to someone, which fills me with fuzzies. :meow:
But again, I don't have much time in the day.

...but when I DO have some time, maybe I can. Probably the best time to ask me for a request is in the summer, when I have no assignments and such whatsoever. :meow:
So if you are really keen, think you can wait until summer break and then see what we can do then? :meow:
