How I almost had the coolest thing in my basement.So I was walking down the tunnel at the Oval last night and I saw a flyer and standing next to the flyer was a team. It basically said: "Adopt a Hockey Player." No, really. It's an entire team. It came with a phone number so OF COURSE I immediately call them.How I almost had the coolest thing in my basement.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
ME: "You're getting rid of hockey players?"
Them: "Um. No. We're looking for host homes for the players. They just need their own room, a place to shower and do laundry, and food available for them."
ME: "You mean I can put a hockey team in my basement?"
Them: "Well, at least two, and upwards of four."
ME: "Four WHOLE hockey players?"
Them: "Oh don't worry, we'll compensate you for them."
ME: "Let me get this straight, you'll pay me to keep four hockey players in my house?"
Them: "And just to clarify, you just need to keep the fridge stocked. They eat a lot. But you don't have to actually cook for them."
ME: "So you'd pay me to have a hockey team in my house, and
I am an unawares perverted idiot.So I'm at the press today running off a bunch of prints for the team and as each one comes off and is nicely trimmed they are handed to me to stuff into a portfolio so they don't get damaged on the way to the rink. The folder I was using was exactly 11x14 as were about 90% of the prints. This made for a tight squeeze and led to my many frustrated exclamations of "Oh my god, will you just get inside already," as well as "No, it's not too tight, you will fit," and several variations of "There you go, that's it, just slide right in nice and smooth," and the eventual thrilling, "YES!"I am an unawares perverted idiot.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Needless to say the entire printing office was staring red-faced and open-mouthed and I was so engaged in my work that it took me several portfolio-stuffing minutes to realize this...and why.
My post office already likes to harass me thanks to a crazy Canadian who likes to send me sexual things for the holidays and LISTS THEM ON THE CUSTOMS LIST.

I have been having cunneckshin troubles. To pass the time, I have been working very hard. ....Working very hard at re-watching the entire Death Note series.
I forgot how good it is. Goddamnit. It's so good. God. I'm obsessed all over again. I've even made some new Death Note comics. I'll be posting them soon.
Now, before I tell you a story about something that happened to me the other day, I want to show you this cool little thing I have found called formspring.me.

Manga Studio Walkthrough: Part 3- Wavy Text- TextWavy text, speech bubbles, custom speech bubbles, outlined text. TEXT GALORE! Yes this one is covering Text 8D I always see that someone uses photoshop for wavy text even though manga studio can do it or they use photoshop for that white outline but in manga studio it's a matter of a click of a button I will show you how.Manga Studio Walkthrough: Part 3- Wavy Text- Text3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I will show you also how to auto screentone speech bubbles for that dark foreboding feeling.
Click on the text tool, it's the icon that looks like the letter A. Click on your art work in the panel area you wish to use text. The properties panel will appear as above. Where I have pointed out in red, tick for out line. Change the number up or down for the thickness of the white outline.
Tick and adjust the other options for other effects. Now for the speech bubble click where I marked in red the tab called Dialogue Balloon Settings.
Click generate Dialogue Balloon and a new window will appear
Jealousy on deviantART......Is a dangerous, dangerous thing. And really, it's not worth it I think I've finally realized why I was in that art slump for so long, and only drawing portraits. Because, like every other artist on deviantART I aspired to be recognized for my art-- not for fanart, but for my art. And since headshots were so much easier to draw than full bodies and because they always seemed to get more recognition than artworks that I actually spent time on, I got into drawing them more often. Until sooner rather than later, I just lost inspiration to draw full bodies.Jealousy on deviantART...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Then things get worse when I started comparing my work to other artists. I don't know HOW many times I've encouraged other artists to do art for themselves and never compare their art to others. But for the longest time, I was doing it without even realizing it! Always obsessing over the front page, comparing my work to other artist's-- it's especially worse when you see a younger artist getting more recognition than you; but m

One for strands and a soft brush like below where it says 6, 19 and 19. The first three brushes displayed:Braid Tutorial- Photoshop and SAI Friendly2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
First draw a line in the direction you want your braids to be in. Curved or straight.
Next draw a thick diamond shape, boxy if possible. Then from about halfway attatch another diamond shape.
Continue this all the way down your guideline. You will end up with something like this below.
Colour a flat base. The midtone of your braid and reasons why will be mentioned as we go.
If you are a cell-shader this tutorial will give you an idea on what to do but this is more aimed at realism and semi-realism but ask for help if you want to see this in other styles. Moving on.

I've had a few health hurdles that I can't describe on here (lady part issues, truly, I will gross out male viewers and we don't want that!) and I have been kind of bedridden trying to rest enough. I still may need a surgery to fix an issue but I will be alright. We'll hope it doesn't get to that point.

Alright, first off, Ms. Rose is doing wonderfully. She is two weeks old today! She is putting on weight and keeping me, Sue and Tim up all night with crazy newborn ANTICS. Phoebe and Miranda are adjusting well. Phoebe is a tad jealous but I think with some patience she will see that Rose is no replacement for her. Miranda really likes being a big sister so far and is helping me with all sorts of things like grabbing diapers and singing to the new baby. I am so blessed to have my family. I love them all dearly.

In the panel you intend to use for you building or 3D object use the tool shown in the red square. Options will appear though I hid mine for now to show you what the 3D plane looks like. When you select the tool click and drag to the borders of your panel.
Now the properties panel will open for what you wish to put in this area. This can range from guns to motor bikes to housing and city scapes. The best part however is that you can build your OWN 3D objects to place in here. I'm going to show you how to arrange in perspective, change to line art only or line art and toning.

Gay Parenting Doesn't Turn Your Child GayLately, many people say that gay parenting turns your child either gay or lesbian. Oh really? So, them why do straight parents sometimes have at least one gay child in there family? Like, I was born from straight parents and I am homosexual. Overall, your point is invalid. It is very common for people to talk bad about gay parenting because it is not seen in real life most of the time. Me and my fiancee LoveDolly are both mothers-to-be and we have gotten some insults from people because of that. Some people even said our son might be gay. Like, please STFU. He's a fetus! How are you supposed to know his life? Then, every time people encounter a straight couple being pregnant, they think it's all cute and sweet. But, when me and Dolly announce it, some people are disgusted. I do have some people who do accept it though, which is good. But I am only talking about the ones who think it's weird. Besides that, some people even said we shouldn't have kids to begin with. Me and Dolly areGay Parenting Doesn't Turn Your Child Gay4 months ago in Personal More Like This

This tutorial set will cover text and how to do comic style wavy text with a white outline. Panels dones with the panel ruler so when you draw in the panel nothing goes outside said panel without the need for selection tool. Screentones, custom tones and other ways to tone. Inking if I get far enough. And 3D materials for setting up scenes.
FIRST STEP: MAKE YOUR DPI 1200!!! You can change those at any point using layers alone! I'll elaborate more later.
In the below image. Hide beginners mode. Open the Navigation window, Colour, Layers and Tool Options in the Window Tab.
Where I have marked red go to the tab called Rulers. Left click and the option shown will appear. Choose Panel Ruler Layer.
In the image below, use the two tools pointed to, to cut and adjust your panels.
I Have an Amazing Brother (Very Heartwarming)So yesterday when my brother along with his family came to visit, they told us something that sparked our hearts. My brother said to me, "You guys will be great mothers to your son. He is lucky to have very nice ladies in his life taking care of him." That message made us smile. Then, my sister-in-law said a message to us saying, "We know that the both of you will be amazing parents. It is quite difficult raising babies, but once they get older, you'll start getting used to it and it'll get easier." They even told their kids that homosexuality is okay and if they see two moms or two dads, they shouldn't be rude. Their kids are still excited about their new cousin even though there are two aunts who are engaged having this baby. They're also the only family members of mine who are certain to coming to our wedding in summer 2015. I swear, my brother is one of the best people I have ever encountered!

13 years ago todayToday marks the 13th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the United States. Take a moment and reflect back on the senseless loss of innocent lives cut short by the attacks on the World Trade Towers and the Pentagon. Say a prayer for the brave souls who while others rushed out of the World Trade Towers, rushed in to save those that were trapped inside. Knowing the extreme risk did not deter them from their job and in the end so many paid the ultimate price. Stop for a moment of silence to honor the heroes of United Flight 93 who stood up and fought back against their attackers preventing them from reaching their intended target. In doing so they became the first to perish in our war on terrorism.13 years ago today6 months ago in Personal More Like This

I went to get a 32 week ultrasound a few days ago and the doctor said that he (the baby) is currently 7 lbs. After he is born, I will be off of school for a year.Pregnancy Update!2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have also gotten a new due date, too. The doctors definitely say it is not February 17, but instead February 8. We also picked a new middle name instead of Dmitriy. Dolly didn't think Dmitriy went well andI got bored with it. So, his new middle name is Sage. Yes, I said it. I think it sounds well with the name Viktor rather than Dmitriy with it.
I packed my hospital bag already and know what I will bring. Most people bring bottles with them, but I don't need one when I got boobs. When he is born, I will show you pictures and write information. Here is the information I will use:

Moonblog #20 - My Newest Watcher.Moonblog #20 - My Newest Watcher.1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Guys, short and sweet. My newest watcher is Rose Dhayna Frank. My new baby girl came 37 weeks via a c-section. She is so beautiful and doing very well. A healthy seven pounds and eight ounces! Big for that gestational age and also roughly 19 and a half inches! She is slightly preterm but does not require the NICU!
Her name Rose Dhayna means Rose Luck. Yup, Dhayna is Sanskrit for lucky, wealthy and gifted. Rose was picked for a few reasons but mostly because her daddy courted me by showing me a giant rose bush in front of our future home. He was so cute and excited because he knew how much live plants mean to me.
Dhayna follows the tradition of all my babies having Sanskrit middle names. I am Pagan but I realize my girls may not choose this path for themselves. I gave each of them unique but 'normal' first names. If they do follow my path, then they can ask me about their unique middle names. If not then they don't have to use them and will be loved and accepted either way.
I realized i
