the importance of failingsOften times i see many artists on all levels expressing their expectations from their current progress and seeing it as they fail. They feel this way because the type of level that is set is not only high but its constantly changing to grow higher even as they are progressing passed levels of artistic skills.the importance of failings1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Imagine a horse rider holding a fishing pole with sugar(your artistic level you want to reach) by the end of the string. And you the artist is the horse pursuing it.You are progressing forward but your goal is also being set higher as you progress.
And of course you will never ever reach the level that is constantly changing and i think this is an idea that every eager and striving artist should be comfortable with. To be comfortable with failing.This is not to say that you wont reach new levels , because you will.The levels you set up when you started out are much lower then the levels you set in your current phase.
The tough part is of course to stay on trac

Digital Art - Why it's such a popular mediumThe World of Digital ArtDigital Art - Why it's such a popular medium2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Stepping out of the real world and into your imagination is an experience that is both shared and held close to all of us. Most of us here express it in our own way in respects to art and the art form. As time moves forward technology progresses on, that type of expression is finding new means and mediums to be painted upon.
Digital art has exploded with the modern age and with it brilliant and fantastic artists have emerged from its rupture. So why is Digital Art so popular.
Cordyceps by jeffsimpsonkh
What makes Digital Art so appealing that most would give up traditional art to move onto something more accessible. Is it money? Is it the potential to further your own artistic ventures? Some say all and others none of the above. It's all personal preference but I am sure we can all observe how popular Digital Art has become. Not just for the artists down the street but as
CA.Org/TAD Are Stealing Artist RoyaltiesMy name is Brad Rigney, I am an illustrator, some of you may be familiar with my art and also with my tutorial entitled "A Hostile Takeover" that Conceptart.org produced, distributed and later sold through Conceptart.org and The Art Department (TAD).CA.Org/TAD Are Stealing Artist Royalties1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First of all I want to thank those of you who have purchased my tutorial through legitimate means. Your support has been incredible, myself and my family can't thank you enough, the notes and letters I have received from many of you in regards to the tutorial have honestly been touching and inspirational - it's been an experience unlike anything I expected to find in this business.
It is that very experience which has prompted me to come forward and lay my cards on the table and finally expose what has been transpiring behind the facade that is being presented to you by these institutions, because you deserve to know the truth for your own financial and intellectual protection.

Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map

A drawing contest...(Winners Announced)Hey guys, I've been thinking about a few things, and thought of a great idea... Why not host a contest? And instead of offering my shitty art this time, I can offer out cash prizes, since I've got a little pool over here.A drawing contest...(Winners Announced)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So this contest here is basically a 2-in-1. There's going to be two categories, a writing one and a drawing one. Here's the basics.
Overall Topic: Veperine and Darius
(League of Legends)
A little information on Veperine:
Veperine my Summoner Original Character for League of Legends. Summoners are basically people who abide by magics and rules to bring forth combatants known as Champions to face off on the Fields of Justice. She serves her country, Ionia, in political matches for the League, but on her free time, she has fun enjoying the violent Noxians. She uses a double-edged spear for a weapon, and also uses red, lightning-like magic (can be seen in her reference down below). For more information on her back story, click here: http://veperine

JohnSu goes to AX 2013Hey guys, sorry I took so long! This year I'm going to try something a little different and not Flash-dependent. I wasn't really sure how much I was gaining by making the pages squiggly and separated by animated transitions, so without further adieu, here's my report on this year's Anime Expo, now with alt-text! (hover mouse on image for commentary)JohnSu goes to AX 20131 year ago in Personal More Like This
My biggest regret this year was being too busy and not getting around the artist alley more and visiting people and panels. Thanks to everyone who visited, and sorry to everyone who I didn't visit (or visited only very briefly)! I feel really rude in retrospect. I also feel like I didn't really get to see much of what AX had to offer this year by confining myself to my table for most of it.
Next year I hope to have some sort of book-type product at my table, but knowing myself, I will probably either give up or miss deadlines again and you'll see a repeat of the first two images in the report.
MAN, I sure got tired of drawing myself.

Please be careful WHAT you SELL for POINTS!Dear members,Please be careful WHAT you SELL for POINTS!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
as we all know this delicious new function has been enabled by DeviantART recently which allows you to sell content for points and keep the amazing amount of 80% of your share.
Overall this is a nice new function and we can't wait to see what you will do with it. We just want to warn you to be careful about one certain thing:
You should not sell high res files of your work for a small amount of points.
The few dimes people will spare by not having to pay shipping costs can do you badly.
There are a lot of companies, that take your dear work and print it on T- Shirts, books, posters and what not.
And in the past those companies at least had to put the efford into taking your art and retouching it. But shall you think about selling high res files for a small amount of points, greedy companies as that will have it even easier to take your art, distribute it big, and give you nothing of your share!

"MR. PEABODY!" Sherman shouted for the dog as he was dragged forcefully to the door. That was their door. That was their home he was being taken from, the only one he's ever known and this woman he'd never even met before was trying to take him. She couldn't do that!
They hadn't done anything wrong, him or Mr. Peabody. Mr. Peabody was a great dad! Not unfit! He wanted to scream that at her but it didn't come out and he couldn't pull away from her iron grasp. He was sure there'd be a bruise there later, he was absolutely sure of it!
It didn't look like anything could be done. His own protests did no good and neither did Penny's. So he looked to his canine father. He wanted to say so many things to him; that he was sorry he ever used the WABAC without permission, that he got into that stupid fight with Penny in the first place, that he was sorry for being such a horrible son, but all he could say was… "Mr. Peabody, she's hurting me!"

In terms of art, I posted a comment,
my next animation is gonna be Dark Souls General.
It'll be about 2-3 minutes long I believe.
I am animating Dark Souls next because I got
lip syncing practice in, so now I wanna try some
bolder actions. The main character has a helmet,
so no lip syncing needed. I can focus on bold movements.
So he'll be dodging a lot, fighting, and just kind of being
expressive through the eyes/body.
Should be fun.
Also! Google Adsense! This thing is rad! It's linked up to my youtube,

Fandom and OwnershipI recently saw an article where Mike Tyson is supposed to appear as a convict who was a victim of sexual abuse as a child. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/tv-column/post/nbc-moves-mike-tyson-law-and-order-svu-episode-up-a-week/2013/01/30/0dc276fe-6b34-11e2-af53-7b2b2a7510a8_blog.html . The reactions to Mike appearance on the show has kinda made me think about the power that certain pockets of Fandom try to exert over a show.Fandom and Ownership1 year ago in Personal More Like This
A prominent Rape activist, in talking about how sickened that she was by convicted rapist Tyson being on the show, talked about how fans like herself felt betrayed. She further when on to say that because the focus of SVU is on the victim that they feel like they OWN the show. Now, while I understand, appreciate and respect the touchiness of this subject, this woman couldn't just leave her objections to these grounds where her moral high ground does exhibit latitude. She had to approach it from a standpoint of OWNERSHIP.
