I... Oh...BAD MISTAKESI... Oh...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I had a Kanji quiz in Japanese today.
I was so excited because one of the Kanji this section was 村 (mura) as in the "mura" in "Hanamura". I was all, "I'M GON GET THIS. IF I MISS THAT ONE, IT'LL BE SO EMBARRASSING."
I got the Kanji right.
I wrote the hiragana wrong because I got too cocky and I don't often use the む (mu) character.
So I wrote まら. (mara)
As in "penis". :iconpersonaplz:
THIS IS MORE EMBARRASSING THAN WHEN I MADE A SIMILAR MISTAKE IN THIRD GRADE ON A SPELLING TEST.
AND TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, THE CONTEXT OF THE SENTENCE THIS CHARACTER WAS USED IN WAS,
"A TOWN IS LARGER THAN A VILLAGE".
"A TOWN IS LARGER THAN A PENIS"
SO NOW YOSUKE HANAMARA

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go present my Concept project on Freudian psychology.

Full blog and details found here: http://dreamorchid78.deviantart.com/journal/Back-with-a-bang-and-CONTEST-303007033
The contest can be from line art to a painting (digital or traditional). You can enter up to three pictures. While you don't have to pick from the list (since they're just suggestions), the drawing must fit a fantasy scenario, person or creature. A hint will be to try to incorporate a scene along with a fantasy character. You can do either evil or good. Also this MUST be original design and artwork (we're avid art fans of fantasy and know a lot of work out there so don't plagiarizer someone). Also we will disqualify any thing that looks exactly like a dark elf from WOW, Lineage II, or any other game. I really would like to see originality in this and I

What’s next for our superhero role models?
Is Time Travel the next sci–fi bellwether?
Time once was that the “Hero” business was so much simpler
Whether you were Beowulf, Ulysses or Flash Gordon, you simply accepted that by birth or circumstances beyond your control, you were a special and exemplary specimen of humankind elevated above normal commoners.

Quick 'looks like...' comments rant QUICK DISCLAIMER: I posted this rant on Tumblr a while ago, and meant to post it here, but I forgot. And then today I got a comment that reminded me of it. This "Looks like..." comment thing really does get me rather upset, for the reasons outlined below, but please know I'm sharing this rant with you guys on the off chance that it'll help or encourage anybody who's been brought down by user comments recently, as well as educate younger artists how to constructively respond to this one set of user comments. That being said, please note I do use harsh language (no curses, but I am rather harsh) to drive the point home. It's not my new "thing" to be this mean.

Color Inspiration - RedHello again!Color Inspiration - Red2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This is the first of a 7 part journal about colors. I'll take the opportunity of the 7 Days Color Challenge to share some material I've been gathering recently.
Hope you find this interesting for either the challenge or future projects. ^_^
Red has more personal associations than any other color. Recognized as a stimulant, red is inherently exciting. Red draws attention, so a keen use of red as an accent can immediately focus attention on a particular element. (shout out to extroverted people, that's your color (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*)
Red is particularly interesting because it's on both ends of the emotional spectrum. On one end there's passion and love and on the other there's danger, fear and anger. I'm wondering which of these emotions you most associate with the color red. ^^
It's the first color bab

DON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah BradleyDon't go to art schoolDON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah Bradley2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The traditional approach is failing us. It's time for a change.
I'VE HAD IT.
I will no longer encourage aspiring artists to attend art school. I just won't do it. Unless you're given a full ride scholarship (or have parents with money to burn), attending art school is a waste of your money.
I have a diploma from the best public art school in the nation. Prior to that I attended the best private art school in the nation. I'm not some flaky, disgruntled art graduate, either. I have a quite successful career, thankyouverymuch.
But I am saddened and ashamed at art schools and their blatant exploitation of students. Graduates are woefully ill-prepared for the realities of being professional artists and racked with obscene amounts of debt. By their own estimation, the cost of a four year education at RISD is $245,816. As way
Tired of the Video Game IndustryWith the PS4 on the way, the gaming industry is alive once again reminding us how dull and boring and... wrong... it is. Here's a quick summary of some of the things I'm sick to death of hearing about when it comes to video games.Tired of the Video Game Industry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Polygones = Emotion
I'm sure you've all seen the jokes, but this one stems from David Cage, who gushed over the tech demo of an old man's face for the PS4, remarking about how the only way to get "true" emotion is by bridging the uncanny valley with high resolution models, hi-def textures, and realistic shaders. "True emotion" of course can't be found in books, TV, or cartoons because none of those things can depict the exquisite details of a wrinkled face in true HD glory. I'm sorry to say this, David Cage, but if I can get an emotional response out of 16-bit pixel sprites from Chrono Trigger, or a pictureless book... your logic is faulty.
I'm really getting tired of everything wanting to connect to everything else. I know

“Hush, my friends. Let me tell you of those gods whose lore has left our lands, of the long–dead songs of angels and demons; let your hearts brave the ill–luck of broken vows and breathe the influx of borrowed spells. Walk with me on the winds of a victory of kings, and tell me now: whose flock will be crushed under the blow of defeat? Will you bathe in the white solace of the banners of salvation, or burn in the fiery fire of the warriors of damnation?”
