10th Anniversary by DangerRodent2004
10th Anniversary
This pic comemorates the 10th anniversary of Henry Takamoto, officially created January 17, 2006.

This is how 8-year-old Henry, Ryoko, and Eric first looked in March 2007, when I followed the footsteps of Marc Brown, the creator of Arthur. Before then, since January 17, 2006, Henry was originally going to be an adult, the characters were all going to be hamsters, and the hamsters were originally going to be Hamtaro-style before going anthropomorphic in December 2006.

Ryoko Nakamura, created in March 2007, was originally named Ryoko Watanabe. Because of there being a well-known Japanese singer by Ryoko Watanabe, her last name was changed to Nakamura in 2008. She was originally a fox squirrel from a moon called Rodentia where the people there are evolved squirrels. Because of the concept being too strenuous, by June '07, Ryoko was changed into a chinchilla and the series took place on Earth instead of a planet called Hamstern. Because of her originally being a fox squirrel, that explains the brown color!

Eric Yamada, also created in March 2007, was originally named Rick Yamada. Because of there already a fictional character named Rick Yamada, his first name was changed to Eric in 2009. He was originally a cottontail rabbit and was a refugee from an outlaw planet called Lagomorpha. Again in July 2007, because of complications with the plot, Eric was changed into an albino rabbit. Eric's world in the original concept was run by a tyrant who wanted to take over the star system. The concept was scrapped in July and changed in October to the outlaw planet being Arachnia, inhabited by spider people.

The styles have changed throughout the years until around April 2009 when the design changes were final.

This gives a happy 10th anniversary to Henry Takamoto

To a Fresh New Start by DangerRodent2004
To a Fresh New Start
This is my belated pic to kick off 2016.

Henry and Ryoko are on board a spaceship, doing the monkey, and dressed as New Years babies.

My symbolisms in this pic are the spaceship representing the future, the monkey dance to represent the year of the monkey, and the diapers to represent rebirth.

I hope everyone has a happy 2016.

KICKING OFF 2016:

I wanted to wish everyone a happy 2016.

I'm sorry I am late doing it because I caught the flu. Because I took my flu shot last October, it was less severe than without it.

I was originally going to do a submission inspired by this music video from 1983:



(This video won't play in countries where Veoh is blocked)

but decided to scrap it in favor of another idea, if not reinterpreted.

I thought this video is an epic way to kick off 2016 because:

1. It takes place in 2016.
2. "She's got the love monkey riding on her back" - Year of the Monkey.
3. The video looks very Star Trek inspired - Star Trek will celebrate 50 years on September 8.

Despite the flu and the extremely cold temperatures that hit, I am off to a good start!

My mom and I discovered that we have some money saved up to help us get moved to Mattoon. I estimate it to be about a third of the minimum of what we need, which led to my mom crying tears of joy.

Also, I bought a replacement hard drive to the one that crashed and I am hoping that the data recovery project will be a success because I have a lot of important, irreplaceable data that I can't get back, including some unfinished art and all of the 237 basic colors by Taiyo Shikisai KK.

As soon as I get my mom and myself moved out of Stewardson and as soon as I start taking classes at EIU, I would like to buy a new computer and get myself reconnected to the internet. I really miss talking to my friends.

Another good thing is that I found all the 120 basic colors by STAC (Saito Tele-Anima Colors Co., Ltd. - Toei Animation's animation paint of choice) and actually made it into a Photoshop swatch, but it is still in development until I get it finalized.

2015 REVIEW:

As for how 2015 was, it was actually worse than 2012 and 2013 combined!!!

The only good stuff that year were turning 30 on May 9, the graduation ceremony in May, Halloween in October, and Christmas in December.

The bad stuff, I don't really want to talk about it anymore because I don't want to be starting anymore drama and I don't want to go back to trying to end my life again. I will say that it began with finding out that Tiggertron70 passed away. Because of conflicts between my mom and me being on the internet, I ended up spending most of the time cowaring and farting around, worrying too much about who my friends are anymore. There was also the fact my move to Des Moines, Iowa, was shot down and I had to spend another agonizing winter here.

I am very desperate to throw all that pity party drama in the trash and move onto a brighter future!

May 9, 2015, was when I had my next milestone birthday. Besides turning 30 that day, I also went to the Town-Wide Yard Sales, held on the same day. The best stuff I picked up there were a Member's Only Jacket, an acoustic guitar, and a LaserDisc player.

The graduation ceremony went well and I have taped it off Your13.

Halloween was a lot of fun when I dressed up as a J-pop star and gave out candy to the trick-or-treaters. Afterward, I went over to a friend's house and watched "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" and its indierct and unsucessful sequel "Shock Treatment."

On Christmas, I got some A4-sized animation paper from Japan, an ACME-registered pegbar from Lightfoot Ltd., all 65 episodes of "Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers," a pair of snow boots, some sweatshirts, and a couple pairs of pants.

That Christmas was what led me to getting out of my depressed state.

MILESTONES FOR 2016:

Earlier this month, I had my 6th anniversaries on FA and DA. I haven't posted a journal on them, again, because I was sick.

Coming up on January 17, will be the 10th anniversary of Henry Takamoto, and I hope to get a pic for that done before then.

FUTURE PROJECTS:

Now that I got more animation paper and have worked on more model sheets, I have a couple projects I'm working on - a short film called "Mouse!" and the episode pilot of "The Life of Henry Takamoto." I hope to get all that done soon and that it won't conflict with my budget on moving to Mattoon.

UPDATE:

I forgot to add the URL to the video above ^^;

Christmas in 1987 by DangerRodent2004
Christmas in 1987

This Christmas, I decided to do a follow-up of this pic I did back in 2012:
fav.me/d5p6w5b

In 1987, for Christmas, the Takamotos got their very first CD player, a Technics SL-P111. The previous year, they got an RCA SelectaVision VLT-270, the Takamotos' very first VHS VCR.

As for their own gifts, Henry got the Real Ghostbusters Fire House Headquarters playset, the Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future Powerjet XT-7, the LEGOLAND Space System Cosmic Fleet Voyager, the LEGO TECHNIC 8055 Universal Building Set with Battery Motor, the Flexiblocks Flexiwheels Construction Set, the Flexiblocks Special TV Bonus Package as seen on TV, the Vehicle Voltron set, two Wheeled Warriors toys - Armed Force and Sawboss, two NES games - "Mega Man" and "Castlevania," three VHS tapes - "Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors: Deadly Reunion and Other Tales," "The Real Ghostbusters: Play Them Ragtime Boos," and "Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers: Chained and Other Tales," and his very first four CD's "Def Leppard: Pyromania," "Def Leppard: Hysteria," "Bon Jovi: 7800° Fahrenheit," and "Bon Jovi: Slippery When Wet."

His mom, Alex, got a new peacoat, a new scarf, new earmuffs, new mittens, three VHS tapes - "Girls Just Want to Have Fun: The Movie, "Midnight Madness," and "The Cross and the SwitchBlade," and her first four CD's "The Moody Blues: The Other Side of Life," "Queen: A Night at the Opera," "Kansas: The Point of Know Return," and Styx: Kilroy Was Here."

Henry is Playing Mega Man on the NES, while Alex is playing one of her CD's on the CD player.

This is the first time in three or four years since I did paperless digital art and I do apologize for any inaccuracies.
I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

I could do that for you. :)

I also thought of drawing a pic of Henry as a New Year baby to symbolize rebirth, which I'm seeking this year. I haven't come up with my half yet but I will think of something.
