BrushesThis is somehow a continuation of the previous journal with a listing of tutorials I use.Brushes4 years ago in Personal More Like This
People ask me about what brushes do I use even more often than about me making tutorials. Unfortunately here I might help only Photoshop users as I've never used SAI or GIMP and my Corel Painter worked so unbelievably slow on my machine that recently I've simply uninstalled it.
To be honest, the brush I use most often is a simple round brush with tablet pressure controlling the opacity.
With that baby I paint almost everything starting from under-painting and ending on medium details. Yet, there are all sorts of different brushes I use for other things - hair, texturing, backgrounds, foliage and so on. Here are a few sets I have installed. I do not use every single brush from them and I've deleted most of them right after installation... sometimes leaving as much as 1-5 brushes from a set of 30. You can get rid of unwanted brushes by either using the preset manager in the brush menu panel or by cl
Fari [fair-ee]Fari [fair-ee]Fari [fair-ee]3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Fari are rare creatures that are found in all parts of the world, but they originated from the planet, Venus. They were named after 'fairy's', mythical creatures with magical powers, found in storybooks and folktales. They usually hide from humans and are very shy creatures. There are around 100 different types of fari but the three main groups are winged, Fari with feathered or bat-like wings, spiked, also known as "spine". They have very sharp quills that go to the top of its head down to its spine and just plain fari, they have no unique traits. Winged fari are very delicate due to their fragile bone structure, while the spine fari are strong and durable. They can adapt to any surrounding, they can even adapt to human and animal lifestyles. Fari can possess some magical properties. Some fari who do not have this usually are stronger, and smarter. Some even made their own magic, sealing them in glass spheres called "orbs". Male fari are usually bigger in size while the
How Hetalia Affects My Life...Well, to begin with, my computer is running EXTREMELY slow from all of the Hetalia pictures and stories I have on it. All I talk about now-a-days is Hetalia. And since I roleplay Italy(And Prussia, and America, and Cuba... Wow..) I will just go around my house saying, "Germany! Ah, Germany!" I got my brother to start saying "PASTAA~!" I have an RP account for America on Facebook. I practically spend my whole day RPing and watching Hetalia. Not to mention, I ran out of my hose yesterday screaming, "AUSTRIA IS A LITTLE GIRL MAN BOY!!"

Not Even Anita Deserves This!It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of Anita Sarkeesian, but I wouldn’t say that I hate her. I wouldn’t even say that I’m against what she stands for. Ultimately, she wants more and better female representation in video games, which I’m sure most of you also want as well. What I’m against is how she’s trying to go about accomplishing this, which leads to her grossly misrepresenting games and gamers. At best, she’s disingenuous; at worst, dishonest. But she’s not evil, and she’s not deserving of death threats like this:Not Even Anita Deserves This!10 months ago in Personal More Like This

PETA is upset with Pokemon! OH NOES!!1!So yeah, I was scanning through my inbox just now when I found a bunch of notices from a group I belong to:PETA is upset with Pokemon! OH NOES!!1!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
(Incidentally, great group. Everyone should check it out.)
Anyhoo, some of my fellow Anti--PETA members were upset about this little piece of news.
Oh yes, it's true. PETA is in fact protesting Pokemon. They say it encourages animal abuse. They even made a little game to illustrate their point. Bless their hearts.
I hadn't thought about Pokemon in a long time and this whole "protest" really takes me back.
Hey, remember when there were only 150 of the little buggers? Remember when getting a Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and a Charmander on one save file without cheating was, like, the ultimate Holy Grail? Remember when you threw a pokeball and then you practically snapped your Gameboy in half jamming A+B+DOWN a

Alright so, a friend of mine named FireNationPhoenix was telling me about a certain, bible thumping brat we all know, who goes by the name of TheiCarlyAngel. She said that Carly will not leave her alone and that she is getting stressed by her and actually gave her some advice about some things.
But Carly's reply and reaction to Phoenix telling her to "Leave her alone" was just the most f*cking annoying thing I have ever seen in my LIFE and I just have to respond to it, because she was that much of a coward to block me and of course like ALWAYS, accused me of harassment.
I have been around annoying little brats before, and way younger then what Carly might be. But this might be the most ANNOYING out of anything, I was annoyed of for 15 years of living.
Here is one of Phoenix's comments to Carly:

Now before you (Joanna) tell me that, "But look at the deviations that are burning the bible" "Look at all the stamps that have the bible in flames" Let me tell you something.
The bible, is just a book. You can replace that any day, at any time, whenever you want because there are many copies you can find in libraries and book stores. So as of right now, that side of the argument is invalid. Now, the fact that you said "Well it's offensive to me that they are burning the bible" Yeah, I can see how it is offensive towards you but the thing is, that is someth
Top Ten Worst Total Drama Episodes I've been thinking about it, and I've come to the conclusion that Total Drama isn't getting bad. It's always been bad. Every season has had some pretty awful episodes. And I got bored, so I figured I'd figure out what the top ten worst are. Of course this is entirely opinion-based. These are just the episodes that I find to be bad, not the ones that are universally considered awful. If you're wondering, I might make a best list later on.

A lot of you might only remember this episode for taking place in Area 51. That’s the only reason I remembered it. But when compiling this list and picking from a number of Season 3 episodes, I remembered everything this one just does wrong. First and foremost is Courtney whining the entire episode about he
TV review: Randy Cunningham, 9th Grade NinjaSometimes I think that what Disney really wants, is to stop doing tv animation altogether. Kick Buttowski has been cancelled. Motorcity has been cancelled (not that I liked it much, but still). Craig McCrackens Wander Over Yonder is postponed. Gravity Falls is on hiatus, possibly until over Christmas, and Disney seems to have some difficulty acknowledging that show's massive popularity.TV review: Randy Cunningham, 9th Grade Ninja3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And yet, an all-new animated Disney series has slipped under my radar this autumn: Disney XD's Randy Cunningham 9th Grade Ninja. Yes, the title is trying to tell you way too much (his name, his age, and what makes him special), and it's a typical high concept: Junior high school student has been chosen to be the ninja protector of American everytown Norrisville, and with the aid of his funny, fat best friend and confidant, he fights an evil trio made up by a demonic wizard, a power-hungry billionaire and an evil scientist. It's a cliché storm, but it succeeds by being ever tounge-in-cheek.

Anyway, my protip: Don't add people if you don't like the look of their character...seems like common sense, right? Unfortunately not.
You see, as some of you may or may not know, I have a Tentaspy character. I have a thing for monster-y critters, so Tentas are right up my street. Some people DON'T like them, and that's cool...but don't add me and then proceed to bitch about me being a Tentaspy character on Facebook. That's like me adding a person that plays a character I cannot stand and then bitching about it. It's just...not cool.
Now. I realize Tentaspies/Nagasnipers/whatever may not be wanted in a RP that's based in the 60s and closer to canon...but the group *I* happen to be in is a bit more of a "Fantasy Fortress" anyway.
TL;DR version = If you RP something closer to canon, cool. But I want to do something a little more...unrealistic. Some things I can't necessarily do IR

Gay MarriageI have not been very vocal on this issue. But I feel I should address it, as it is something I have fairly strong views about. I am a conservative, that much is true. However, I have always tempered my conservatism with more progressive viewpoints. I believe that we should keep what was good from the past, but adopt some good things from the future. That is why I have been a longtime supporter of gay rights. I believe in equality for gay and lesbian couples. I believe in worldwide legalization of gay marriage and the repeal of the anti gay laws in places like Zimbabwe and Uganda (achieved with a fun little thing called colonialism). On the night gay marriage was legalized in Britain, I did not feel the wrath of god would destroy the nation, I did not fell repulsed or angry. I simply felt proud, proud to be British on that day.Gay Marriage1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So I endorse gay marriage entirely, and condemn homophobia in any form. The crimes comitted against gay and lesbian people across the world are just that:
Tutorials and techniquesQuite a lot of people keep asking me for tutorials and to be honest I see no point in creating yet another strip on how to paint skin/clothes/light/carrots/whatever. There are so many of them out there that it would be simply a waste of time to sit and basically copy what's already been told.Tutorials and techniques4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Instead, I've decided to make a compilation of different tutorials and charts that I personally use to learn how to paint.
The most important thing you need to learn even before starting to read a tutorial is that all walk-throughs are meant for you to understand how things work. My point is that after reading and later practicing a tutorial called 'how to paint a glass duck' you should be able to paint not only a glass duck but also anything else made of glass. You should concentrate on understanding the rules and patterns instead of trying to copy what you see on the image. Otherwise you'll end up knowing how to paint only a few things from only one perspective and one lightning pattern.

You are not a loyal fan.

Who does the art?
Yet you claim it is us ARTISTS who provide you with ART to share that are creating all your problems and we should just think like you do: that our art means nothing and should just be given away for free to anyone who wants it.
Buckle up Loyal Fan Katherine.
That will never happen.
An Apology Please
I didn't want to waste time creating a journal about what has happened. I didn't want to put it up. I didn't want drama. I, quite frankly, have no time for this - I am a single mother with a full time job and a young child! WE as a fandom don't want this at all, we don't need it or have time for it. Yet the fact remains that you were editing fanart without permission. You have impersonated people (me and MeganEliMoon ). You have continued to falsely accuse people of theft (repeatedly).

Yeah guys. There's so much creativity in "subject a buttfucks subject b while subject b doesn't appear to be enjoying it".
I'm not a porn person. I'm going to say it up front. This does not mean I will berate you for enjoying it.
BUT, dA is not a pornhub.
I'd leave these groups if it wasn't for the fact some nice CLEAN actually game relevant art didn't seep through. But it's like finding a needle in a haystack, and this haystack is made of penises.
Yeah, yeah. Just call me a whiny bitch and get it over with. I won't mind.

I'm going to take this time to reflect on some things.
I was talking to Moorina and she inspired me to write this in detail and share with you all ^^
I've been doing doujin work and publishing in Japan for 4 years now... looking back, there has been a ton of sacrifices and bad decisions to be made. My life in general was kinda weird.
This is quite personal, but I though I'd share my life/experience with you guys.
My family was never well off. A lot of our friends don't know of our situation, of course. Our mother was gambling every single day and our father was never home. Mom would take all day looking around the house for hidden cash (stashed from my dad) while dad goes out to play pool with his friends. Our family borrows money from relatives and that's how we get by. If you go back to my journal entries from 2004, those were the days where we had to go to the internet cafe just to use the net because we couldn't afford to pay for anything per month
Pluto missingIt's been a week and a half since we received news of Pluto's demotion to Dwarf Planet. Apparently, Pluto had a heated discussion with Uranus over the decision and hasn't been seen since. The Moon believes she has locked herself in her room and is refusing to speak to anyone. When asked what evidence she has to support this statement, The Moon offered up "Well, that's what I'd do."Pluto missing9 years ago in Personal More Like This
Further inquiries were made to Uranus over the argument they had before Pluto's disappearance. "All I'm saying," she said, "is that I read the report and I understand why the scientists came to their conclusion. They are scientists, after all. Don't get me wrong, I like Pluto a lot. She's.... very 'interesting.' But I don 't know what she's so upset about. I mean, Milky Way, The Moon and The Sun aren't planets either, and you don't see them getting all uppity about it."
