Wait ... what is "now", anyway? I ... let's see...
Hmmm, well ... there is no such thing as the "present". All things actually exist at the "same time". It's a huge misconception of people's picture of time.
When an object moves through space, it moves slower through time. If I wave my hand back and forth, its clock runs slower, so it stays behind the rest of me in time. It is now in the past relative to the rest of me. But my hand is still here. If what people call the present were a moment constant in time, then my hand should be gone, as I just sent it into the past. This is true for all particles in the universe. So why are we still in the "present"?
The answer is that there is only 1 space. If you were to travel into the past, you would still occupy this space. You have 4 coordinates; 3 for your point in space and 1 for your point in time.
Even a time traveler who goes 10 minutes into the past would still be visible here, because he o

Hyping It Up Before It Exists
A lot of people will put up promotional artwork, covers, character references, and other related work for their comic before putting up a single page. People often say if you want to write a book or you want to lose weight, it's best that you not tell anyone. When you tell someone you plan on doing something, they will praise you for it. The problem is, you are now receiving praise for something you haven't actually done yet. You don't have to work for that praise; the mere act of saying you will do something rewards you the same external way you would get for actually doing it. Sadly the result is many people are content to stop there. It's not even a conscious decision, but a lot of people will get caught up in the hype without realizing how hard making a comic actually is. Hold off putting up anything related to your comic until you at least have a few pages up; it wil

The reason I wanted to tell you is in case anyone had any other ideas that might be well suited for it, or if you had questions that might give me an idea of more things to include.

Developing Artists FAQHey everyone, just wanted to make a new journal about some stuff that's goin on in my head, and to those who care feel free to read.Developing Artists FAQ2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I've just graduated with a BA in the Arts (WOW SOOOOO HARDCORE) in late April. Aside from handling small freelance and commission stuff between my spare time, I also started working full time at a local mobile game studio as a concept artist and animator.
Now thinking back on my journey so far, I've met a lot of obstacles and obviously overcame many of them, and the ones I didn't overcome I keep on trying. For the longest time, while being in this online art community filled with countless talents of various degrees, I have sought knowledge amongst the community here, and in turn people have also came asking for knowledge in return. While I specialize in the entertainment industry as a visual production and sometimes pre-production artist, there have been many learning curves that I had to tackle by myself, because lets face it, if school wa

These are my most Frequently Asked Questions and most commonly received comments:
1 I Have a Request For a Stained Glass of (Insert Character Here)!
Firstly, check my gallery. Specifically the folders titled "Stained Glass Project" and "Commissions". Is your request in either folder? Yes? Alrighty then! You no longer have to request it. No? Well, the only stained glass windows I have plans for are those on my donations list, which can usually be found on my profile page, or my current commissions list, which can usually be found below the donations list. If the character you suggested is not on either list, I do not have plans to make a stained glass for him/her. You will have to make it a commission.
*(As of August 9th 2012, I'm reserving the right to change my mind for any future Disney or MLP characters.)
2 Why don't you have a stained glass for Aurora AKA Sleeping Beauty, Snow
TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS...."The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who'll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you're sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that's almost never the case." - Chuck CloseTO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS....1 year ago in Personal More Like This

I'll pretty much make a stamp of any character in the MLP:FiM series as long as I can get a clear picture of them. I'm only using vectors (since most are free use, just need to give credit) or literally screen grabs from the show though, OR if you have one of your OWN works that you want me to use instead. I don't want to steal anyone's work.

I, and possibly other admins, will be reading these books before deciding to feature them. We are not critiquing these books, but rather, checking to make sure the quality is decent and not a waste of your time or money.

My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you
