Help!! I'm In The Past!!! D:I mean it! I'm actually in the past right now!Help!! I'm In The Past!!! D:2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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
Chasm Crossing Update#7 (gifs and pics)This is where things will get more quiet on my end and slow. Some of you are familiar with this stage, but this is the time where an animator is fairly busy with behind the scenes stuff. We aren't necessarily inactive, but we aren't also showing too much work or things we're working on. I may throw up a few screen caps here in journals or on my main deviantart to keep the audience knowing that I'm working on the project. Even so, I'm going to keep those few and sparse as to not spoil anything >.>Chasm Crossing Update#7 (gifs and pics)4 months ago in Personal More Like This
There is alot of content to be drawn and animated. I'm in the stage where I'm starting to lock some scenes down for animation. The first 30 seconds of CC is almost done (gotta finish dem backgrounds), but that's such a small number in comparison to the rest of the project T.T
Along with animating, there comes to audio cutting of dialogue which I recently found taxing. If I'm not animating, I'm cutting audio. If I'm not cutting audio, I'm story-boarding. If I'm not story-boarding, I'm lineartin
Need your input for a Photoshop guide!Hey everyone! Just wanted to give you a heads up that I'm working on a super long, detailed guide to maximizing your workflow efficiency and file/layer management in Photoshop. There are also a lot of other assorted tips and tricks in there as well.Need your input for a Photoshop guide!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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. Some of it will be obvious to some of you, but I've realized over time that things that I assume everyone knows end up being largely unknown by a lot of people.
Currently, here is a portion of what I have:

Arnaq x Ulvar Litter!Alriiiiight. It's time to share my big news here before I'll forget!Arnaq x Ulvar Litter!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
After very long time of waiting for the right moment both in the space and time, finally I am expecting to have official Greenland dog litter collaborated with my trusty friend and Nordic Storm kennel… where mother is going to be my Arnaq!
There is a long story behind which involved a lot of planning and a few of amazing happenings that led my one of my (impossible) dreams to come true- but that's story for another time. I'll have my own Greenland dog/Gronlandshund/Greenlandic Inuit Dog/Qimmiq litter of puppies (and very first GH dogs for United States!) - where parents are going to be my Arnaq (dam) and Ulvar (sire)!
Bragging out is definitely not in my style but I can't resist that where I must mention as being an active person in Gronlandshund activities- I think this litter will be one of the best ones with it's purpose as working dogs since centuries- for western country climate, of co

TALENT IS EARNEDTalent is EarnedTALENT IS EARNED5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I get it. There are some people out there that do have some extreme capabilities right out of the womb, but this is targeted to those who are average joes, who think they can’t do things that a person with ‘Talent’ can.
Let’s start by defining the word ‘Talent’. According to dictionary.com it states
1. a special natural ability or aptitude: a talent for drawing.
2. a capacity for achievement or success; ability: young men of talent.
3. a talented person: The cast includes many of the theater’s major talents.
4. a group of persons with special ability: an exhibition of water colors by the local talent.
5. Movies and Television. professional actors collectively, especially star performers.
This definition, in my opinion, is misused when said to me. Because to me it implies that what I do, is specially natural to me and

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

There’s something about the brilliant colors of the dying leaves of autumn that reflects the wonders and the sorrows of life. It’s as if by waking up each morning into this beautiful world of natural colors, we are being given our bittersweet reward for surviving another year on the planet. We are regaled with a brief seasonal ceremony of the turning of the leaves, nature’s gift for our eyes as a promise she will soon return after her yearly rest. And then it’s time to let winter’s grey pallor unfold over us in blankets of dark cold rain and bright brisk snows; we sleep, the autumn’s leaves having promised
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....2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Night Raiders - v1.0Hey everyone! I've made a survival minecraft world! It's called Night Raiders! The map was created and designed by me and Darcia, with help from Ashley Staggs.Night Raiders - v1.02 years ago in Personal More Like This
*Two team PVP survival map! Red vs Blue!
*6 players per team for a total of 12 possible combatants!
*Simple automatic player drop system makes the map easy for admins to setup.
*Two unique worlds built from the ground up!
*Both sides have ores and resources the other side needs!
*Lots of hidden pathways, secrets, and treasures sprinkled throughout both worlds!
*The only 2 doors connecting the worlds open and close depending on the time of day and weather conditions. During the day they're closed, but then at night they open up!
*Sneak into enemy territory and steal the precious resources you need to level up your weapons and armor!
*Defend your land from outsiders!
The map is free to download, but I would like to encourage people to visit the site via the following adf.ly http://adf.ly/DIR5n . I know everyone hates those links,

New Brushes In Sight for Arrival
Hello everyone, now normally we release an exercise yesterday but today we are letting you guys know we are working to create easy to download brush packs that you guys will be able to download in a single click! So the focus for the next two weeks is going to be shifted, which would normally be on exercises to creating some fantastic brushes. This has been something I’ve wanted to update for some time. There’s no reason the brushes should be separated and hard to download all of them. Next Friday we will have a new page with a one-click, easy to download brush pack available.
So my question to you: What brushes do you want me to create by next Friday?
Let us know HERE.
I already have new metal brushes, silhouette brushes, and painterly brushes
Premium Content and how I feel about making moneyHalloPremium Content and how I feel about making money2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's a new feature called premium content that allows users to make file downloads available for a charge. This seems to be something with a vast range of different possibilities that range from quite nice to to quite lame. Of course we are all always against commercialization and sell-outs and everything and don't want things to change but there are some interesting options here.
Obviously everyone is going to know whether or not this is something he or she could use and how much sense it's going to make for what you do specifically but there's two points I want to adress.
I always thought it was lame when people sell stuff like brushes or psd files. This is probably just my personal opinion and many will certainly disagree for valid reasons, but I think, if you make some brushes, and you ask money for something as tiny as that, you are lame. Sorry. Actually, the point here is not that it will kill someone to pay like one buck for something tiny, it's just that it change
