“Have you heard of Patreon?”
“Why doesn’t your site have a Donate button?”
Put simply, I have this (evidently archaic) opinion that; if you want to make money, you have to do the work first. I don’t like the idea of taking money off people unless they get something for it immediately, not [insert timeframe here] down the line. It feels like a scam. That’s why I produce all those cheap digital comics: to finance my larger projects (and which is why I get pissed off when I find them being distributed freely online, because it slows everything down).
Even for large projects, like video-games that only have a niche audience and which big publishers won’t ever assist: I don’t see crowd funding as a particularly good way to go about getting production capital. I prefer the early release approach, such as that Mojang took with Minecraft.

Not Gadot!It was announced a few days ago (I’ve been outa the loop and didn’t hear till this morning) that Wonder Woman will be showing up in Man of Steel 2: Batfleck Rises.Not Gadot!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It’s also been hinted that other familiar faces from the Batman universe will either appear or be referenced.
First concern at this news is that they’re moving too fast. WB are looking enviously at the cash-cow that is The Avengers and are force feeding their own franchise all manner of unhealthy things in an effort to hasten its development.
If they don’t devote the same amount of time to character development as the Marvel films did, the general movie-going audience isn’t going to have a real desire to see a JLA flick as they will simply feel no connection to the characters.
Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America. There were 5 movies before we got to Avengers. It made people invest in the universe that was being presented.

The Happy World of Haribo...oh...OH...OH, GOD!!!I like to take a bag of Haribo gummy sweets with me when I go to the cinema. It's cheaper than buying the over-priced rot they sell in the foyer, and thanks to the industrial waste they're quite obviously made from; it can take the length of a movie to chew through a bag of the things.The Happy World of Haribo...oh...OH...OH, GOD!!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Overthought, Underbaked: The Controversial New DA Logo
So, in response to requests for my thoughts on the new DA logo — and being disinclined to type the same response repeatedly — I will lay out my impressions here.
To paraphrase a certain swordsman: "You keep using that logo, but I do not think it conveys what you think it does."
The new logo is certainly clever, and as a designer — setting aside any resemblance to the platzkart.ru logo, accidental or otherwise — one can easily imagine the careful thought that went into its concept and execution, but...
If there is one thing that I took from my schooling in graphic design, it was the importance of clarity: of meaning, of import, of impression. This was true for any work, its composition, it layout, its style — its effective visceral message. Logo design, above all, is go

Yeah, this'll end well.....Let me try to wrap my head around this: certain parties in the U.S government don't like the idea of assisting the poor, of the county they serve, with health care expense, because of the cost.Yeah, this'll end well.....1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Their "solution" to this is to shut down the government (something which isn't possible in any other nation on the planet), which will cost more, decrease public spending, lower the demand for imports, damage global economy and generally tarnish the U.S's international reputation even further?
The rich making others suffer in an effort to get their own way.
I believe that's called "tyranny".
“Dreams” by Fitzgerald Scott"Dreams“Dreams” by Fitzgerald Scott4 years ago in Personal More Like This
What are dreams?
Moments etched in time
Swept in strokes on twilight canvases
Vast as the cosmos
Quiet lullabies echoing through the purple dawn
Farthest reaches of imagination, fulfilled
Leaps and bounds
Hidden beauty in unexpected places
Sculptures of perfect imperfections
These are dreams
Sublime journeys beyond the extraordinary
Sad shadows of requiems long ago
Forms and formlessness
Textures that radiate cascading visions and colorful sounds
Dreams that shimmer between wishes and stars
Through infinite possibilities"

When I first sold LMS to Paramount, a lot of people asked me: "How much money did you get?" "You're probably rich now, right?"
I mean, the solid gold mansion I bought was just a little gift to myself...but...
Ever since I was little, I've known I wanted to draw. From the day my parents put a pencil in my hand, this was my future. I just knew it, I had that gut feeling. So I stuck to it, and thankfully it took me to heights I'd have never imagined possible. Now with my new book Redemption heading off to studios soon for a hopeful movie package, I can't wait to see where this new road takes me.
That said, there's something else that tops all of this.
The other night I went out to visit my girlfriend's cousin and her family. Incredibly kind people with very sweet kids. Other than the two parents, there were 3 kids, but the one who caught my interest was the eight-year old boy, Diego.

10 tips about drawing #3 - ShadingThird round of 10 simple and effective tips about drawing, this time a bit more spesific, time to delve into shading, the one area I feel I have progressed the most.10 tips about drawing #3 - Shading2 years ago in Personal More Like This
**This is my own personal take and oppinion about shading, take it with a grain of salt **
1. Shade and blend An extremely common way to shade, but not only overused but more often than not used incorrectly.
You lay down a value pref. with an HB or softer pencil and blend it into the paper from the dark to the light, but the thing here to remember is to not go too hard in blending at first, if you do it is very tricky to manipulate the values after.
Think of the tooth of the paper like grass, don´t just stomp them down on the first go, gently grace the paper with a blending stump/tissue/q-tip etc and once you start to approach the desired value you can go a little harder.
2. Directional blending Much as 1. but directional blending means you always blend following the curve of what you are drawi

Cooks are in charge of making meals for the team. :3 BE CREATIVE WITH WHAT YOU MAKE! (Like, alien squid with a hint of salt~!) You can announce the type of food everyone will have up to 3 times a day. Unless you like eating.
Boring, huh? To make it more interesting, you are also responsible for CATCHING the food you cook and harvesting the alien plants you cook.
The cooks are generally sneaky... sometimes spying on other team members to uncover their darkest secrets... I mean, what else can they do all day besides cook?
Same-Sex Marriage.... Sorry, yeah, I may be going into a bit of a rant here, just for a brief warning.Same-Sex Marriage.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, same sex marriage... WHY is it not allowed? What exactly is peoples problem with it?
Sorry if this is a bit out of the blue, but recently in England there's supposed to be a big vote or something about whether homosexual marriage should be allowed, and a lot of people are apparently saying it shouldn't be.
Now some people think same sex marriage is 'traditional' or whatever, and of course there's the religious views, but apart from that... What is wrong with it? Marriage isn't even that much of a religious thing, I mean its literal meaning is 'is a social union or legal contract between people called spouses that establishes rights and obligations between the spouses, between the spouses and their children, and between the spouses and their in-laws.' In short its just a contract binding two people together. Why should that not be allowed for same sex couples?
From purely the relationship side of th
