This is why the Doctor is RealThis is something that actually happened some time back, but I didn't really write it down or anything. Lately though, I was thinking about it, and I wanted to share it with my friends here.This is why the Doctor is Real2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To give a little background, everyone in my family watches (and loves) Doctor Who. I have a very young sister who has only gotten to see a handful of episodes of the new series because the rest would scare her, but she still was desperate to see more of the Doctor, so we started watching the classic episodes together. She's our little Whovian. She loves all the Doctors, especially Eleven and Four, and she said Sarah Jane is her hero because 'she must be, like, the bravest person EVER and I want to be brave like her.'
I guess that's why I wasn't sure what to tell her when one day she walked up to me, a serious expression on her little face, and asked 'Sarah, is the Doctor real?'
I was stunned. I thought she understood it was just a show. She's never even believed
MMD In defense of rip artists ...MMD In defense of rip artists ...2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
DeviantArts (DA) is probably unique in several ways, but the thing that I've found strangest and have had the most difficulty with grappling with is their tolerance(?) of "rips". Which is why I think this could be an interesting discussion.
"Rips" are models taken from commercial computer and video games and used for "something else". Make no mistakes about it, probably 99.99% of rips are illegal in the sense that they were "stolen" from something else. Which, given the existence of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), makes it kind of strange that DA tolerates any rips on their servers at all. May be they really do deserve the kind of reputation that they receive on other forums on the Internet, or they just aren't making enough money to be worth the bother to sue. Who knows? The fact remains is that at the moment DA seems to be a safe haven for rippers and nowhere are they perhaps more visible than in the MMD field.
Then again, there's ano
Toothless PlushIf you saw me at Otakon, you would have also seen the Toothless plush I was carrying as part of my cosplay. It was created by my very talented friend who has decided to make a few more! Some people had expressed interest in getting their very own Toothless plushie - well here's your chance ^^Toothless Plush4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Her new plushes are a bit smaller than the one I was carrying at the convention (36" long with a 48" wing span). Her first plush has hand sculpted eyes and claws but the rest will have cast resin eyes with sculpted gloss claws that I will create (as soon as my molds are done).
She also takes commissions and is a fantastic sculptor! She's considering joining our crew at next year's Otakon!

sad homepages in the social networking snowUgh. 2011 was not what i'd call a particularly good year. Figures that it was the 10 year aniversairy of MT and stuff, too. ; One casualty of the year was a lot of BS with my host and the loss of the server containing the Fredart and Sarah's Origami websites. I have backups, so i can put things back together, i just haven't had the time yet... that and the fact that i really want to change fredart itself into a site i actually use to post and organize stuff rather than an older, rarely used repository of my older work.sad homepages in the social networking snow3 years ago in Personal More Like This

The premise is, in the year following Discord's imprisonment, he is brought out of his stone casing to be offered a deal by Princess Celestia, in hopes of reforming him and training Twilight and her friends. Though stripped of most his power and confined to a simpler form, he still holds a variety of tricks up his sleeve to go back on his deal. Without the elements of Harmony, Twilight and her friends must each face Discord alone, without the help of one another.

We all start as beginners and take our time...but then certain points...there are times when we feel a certain way about our art.

AMAZING CHANCE ENCOUNTERAmazing.AMAZING CHANCE ENCOUNTER7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I know, it's name-dropping, sure, but it's also a chance in a bazillion...
I spotted Guillermo Del Toro at Oakland airport yesterday.
For whatever reason I felt compelled just to say hello, or forever kick myself. So…
"Mr Del Toro?"
"I just wanted to say hello. I believe we have some mutual friends…" and so it went for about three minutes.
I didn't want to push my luck, and everybody deserves their privacy. He was gracious, charming, and interested in who I was - which I believe says a lot about anybody. (My wife once put it very clearly - "it's as important to be interested as it is to be interesting…")
I was thrilled.
Soon we parted ways.
I emailed some friends like the big kid I am, grinning ear to ear.
Then I queued up for boarding.
By chance I had A1 - the first in line - and when I boarded...
there he was!
I asked if he minded if I sat next to him and he very warmly said no, not at all!
Long story short, we chatted like old friends

Art and perfectionismDear, deviantart fellow artistsArt and perfectionism7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Perfectionism can be a good and a bad thing at the same time. We strive for it, but sometimes the result doesn't exceed our expectations. And that's okay.
Not every single artwork you make has to be a masterpiece. Make some sketches, speedpaints, studies - just do something. See your flaws, be aware of them - and work on them. Don't put yourself down with negativity. It never helps. It takes time to learn, to gain new skills and make art. Through many hours of work we achieve what we want. And it takes time.
It's so easy to give up. To think - what's the point in doing this, if the artwork is never perfect. Art doesn't have to be always perfect, it has to be made. We have to get used to the fact that we'll never be good enough - there is a beauty in that, because we have something to strive for, to experience and observe.
Making art is difficult and yet it's fun. En

For some time now I have strumbled upon some movies that are mockups of other movies. Sometimes the whole theme is the same, sometimes just the movie poster. However they all have in common that they are pretty bad^^ I've been doing some research on this topic concentrating on 3D animated ones and came up with a list. It is not complete but sometimes its hard to decide if something can count as mockup. There is not really much known about some of those films and reasearch was hard at some point. However, I managed to find/take a screenshot for each of em.

The exact quote went like this: "even more of us (Risembol Rangers, formers of the latter, or not) know how much of a jerk he is to the staff of conventions, to other paid con guests, and to con attendees. Just why would you, the staff, resort to getting such a man onto your guest list despite knowing how rude and how much of a diva he is to any and everyone around him?"
I know rumors about Vic are nothing new, but I've never heard of someone actually questioning the con staff as to why they booked a certain guest! This person later apologized and said this: "I suppose he could've changed since the stories I've heard of first hand accounts in
5 reasons why we fail to get things doneDear, deviantart fellow artists,5 reasons why we fail to get things done9 months ago in Personal More Like This

As usual I had no idea what would be the topic of this journal, but I managed to think about and write down these 5 reasons why we (and I) tend to fail on things we want/have to do and I hope you'll find this journal post helpful.
1. Time management issues.
"I have no time for this", "If only I had the time for that" .. we tend to make these excuses, as if we all wouldn't have the same amount of time every single day. It's how we manage to spend that time, that matters. A lot of us have other important things to do, but let's be honest, if you have the dedication there are really no obstacles in your way. There will never be the perfect time for anything and with proper planning It's easier set the priorities for the right things.
They are everywhere. Especially on the internet. We tend to waste so many hours on checking what's new, reading bl
