STYLE RANTIf you ask me the word "style" is misused and underutilized to be of much use to people discussing something as vast and varied as art. Currently the way "style" works, is people will group a bunch of artists based on trivial common ground and then slap a "style" label to it with whatever word that happens nearby. Now when you hear that word, you think of one image in your brain to summarize a bunch of people. Most people think for instanceSTYLE RANT3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Indy style = Black and white autobiographical comics with chicken scratch linework.
When it should actually mean
Indy = Independent = Self made
Anime style = Big eyes, tiny noses, high saturation, cute shit
When it actually means
Anime = Animation in Japanese = Animation from Japan
An actual USEFUL way to define "art style" would be by motivation for instance:

Just deal with it...they told meHello guys, long time since I updated my deviant, from works to news and journals.Just deal with it...they told me2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now going directly to the point of this journal in matter, I am going to try to clarify some of the reasons for the above recently mentioned and I am going to be as honest as possible. During the last 2 or 3 years I have been growing economically, and raising positions in big companies as a front end developer and web designer, and had to travel long distances to reach the office in a very uncomfortable crowded subway which left me with very little time for studying and painting. At the begging it felt great, it was good, I was ok with it, but eventually things turned up to be like anything I have ever expected. I started to feel more and more sick every month; 3 bronchitis, flu, Pharyngitis and pneumonia were some of the diseases I had all in just about 6 months.
Recently I assumed a great position in my new company and the situation went from bad to worse, as if my body was actually begging me to stop
About Alps...Greetings all!About Alps...7 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you hadn't guessed, this is a club for fans of the supernatural creature the alp. Let me begin by explaining what an alp is.
If you want a good resource to start with, there is an entry on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alp_%28folklore%29 you can take a look at.
Ever since I first found out about these creatures I have been tirelessly seeking out any information I can on them. They go by many names and traits are sometimes altered due to regional interpretations and sometimes outright misunderstanding, which can confuse anyone trying to dig up the dirt on these little guys. That is why I started this club, to make sure people get the right idea. By the way, articles like this http://witcher.wikia.com/wiki/Alp are full of crap and have absolutely no resources to back them up, so beware. (and beware the nasty vampire boobs in the picture provided, too) Notice how the source links back to ITSELF. However it seems to be a wiki for a videogame, so ignore

Yo yo yo weird manga to recommend!ParasyteYo yo yo weird manga to recommend!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hey folks do you like David Croenenberg and 80's anime mindfucks and body horror in general?
If so, then read this shit. Just.... just read it.
I've just gotten started in this one and I'm hooked. It's a Korean manhwa about a teenager being sent to an adult prison, apparently for being a psychotic violent prick.
It's interesting because we get flashbacks to something pretty horrific he did, but when we look at him he looks like a meek little victim. Is his weak appearance a fraud, or is something else going on? I don't know but I can't wait to find out.
Trigger warning - It starts out as a true to form prison story so it includes some rather graphic rape scenes.

WARNING - There are spoilers in this review. If your own emotional reaction to revealing spoils is anger (as represented by a walking "meatboy" bag of unmotivated rage in this movie) then you best not read this review. I know the internet reacts differently to spoilers; and how those who are attacked to for revealing spoilers without warning have different emotions going on inside their heads. (Namely asking "Who is this guy?", "Is he really whining like a little bitch?" and "Is he pretending to be offended or is he just trying to get thumbs ups?")
But I think for the most part people listening to reviews want to know about these movies anyway as long as crucial plot elements aren't spoiled. Of course the fear that you will accidentally reveal such things is alw

Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

Regarding legal concerns for artists via MarvelMany of you have been privy to the recent discussions regarding the law suit between Mavel and Gary Friedrich over the ownership of the Ghost Rider character. There have been endless discussions on how this would affect artists in terms of selling sketches and artwork. It seems like at least once a year a story like this comes along that causes a stir, prompting many to proclaim that once again and, indeed, FOR REAL this time, the sky is falling!Regarding legal concerns for artists via Marvel3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, whenever stories like this came along and they were enough to give me pause, I've contacted my old buddy, Joe Quesada, for his take on things. I actually did that today. Ironically, before I even heard back from him, I stumbled upon this article with Joe and Dan Buckley discussing this very subject. They confirmed what I've been saying all along. I urge you to read the article. Furthermore, I urge you not to jump to radical conclusions over stories like this when they come along and, believe me, more will come along. Things are

1/2 package of ramen noodles with the flavor packet (chicken works best then again I don't eat beef)
1 ½ cups of water
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of sesame oil (or more to taste, I really like it even if it is strong)
1 teaspoon of fish sauce (do not use a lot of this, it is strong!)
½ teaspoon oyster sauce
2 Teaspoons rice wine vinegar
About 4 clusters of small oyster mushrooms broken up, 7 baby shitake, or whatever mushrooms you can get. Oysters are by far the best in this, be sure to cut the bottom off because sometimes they are very woody.
1 egg scrambled in a dish
Some green onions chopped finely
½-¼ cup tofu (however much you want/like)

Savrall Species InfoSavral Coming to EarthSavrall Species Info2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Their origin and how they came to Earth is unknown, even to the race itself. They just began to appear in different locations on the planet. They didn't even have any memory of their lives before they woke up on Earth. But as being a relatively peaceful and intelligent races, the humans welcomed them to their planet. And the race was given the name Savrall, which means "alien lizard". The race soon became a citizen of planet Earth.
It was a few years after their first appearance that they discovered they had the ability to shift into a humanoid form. And many spend most of their time around humans in this form, as it seems the humans were more comfortable communicating with something that looks more like them.
Due to not knowing anything of their own history, the only knowledge they have is that of the humans'. Savrall go to schools, work, and such thing a human does. Their lives are equivalent to a h
