Recently discovered this little site on drawing anime/manga characters. Haven’t had the time to read through the tutorial, but I’ll share it here because its really hard to find free tutorials on the web. Well unless you count forums but the you will have to deal with the OT (Off Topic) post and flames from people who think just alittle too highly of themselves.

The site has drawing tutorials (duhhh), resource recommendation and equipment recommendations theres also a forum you can post and discuss stuff.

Anyways give it a shot and see what happens you never know.

Breaking news today for the anime community in Singapore as Odex is declined the rights to view/take legal actions against the Pacific Net (a.k.a Pacnet) users it so badly wants to get at.

But don’t celebrate yet people for its not all rainbows and puppy dogs yet. On the contrary this might be a lot worst as, the presiding Justice Woo Bih Li has granted access of the names of the downloaders to the six studios that Odex had brought into the fray as those studios owned the copyrights and are able to sue if they want to.

Here is what was written on The Straits Times webpage.

Odex suit to get PacNet anime downloaders’ names dismissed
But the High Court ordered the Internet service provider to reveal names to six Japanese anime studios.

By Chua Hian Hou

“THE High Court on Tuesday dismissed anime distributor Odex’s attempt to obtain the names of PacNet (previously called Pacific Internet) customers who had allegedly downloaded the animated Japanese cartoons. Instead, it ordered the Internet service provider to reveal their identities to six Japanese anime studios. In a verbal judgement in the High Court, Justice Woo Bih Li said that since Odex could not sue downloaders under Singapore’s Copyright Act, there was no reason it should be allowed to obtain the names of the alleged downloaders.This is the same reason District Judge Ernest Lau had given for turning down Odex’s request for the names last September.

Odex had appealed the decision, and had subsequently made submissions to add six Japanese anime studios to its case. Justice Woo granted this request.

Since these studios owned the copyright and could sue, they will have access to the downloaders’ names, he said.”
