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!1 year 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
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
FCU777 RantYes. I am ranting on a person who is Christian and using the bible against this person. :iconfcu777: You have offended lots of people with the way you treat them and the way you treat others. Along with the fact YOU shove beliefs down people's throats when Jesus never did that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbvTyx1OIcQFCU777 Rant9 months ago in Personal More Like This
To make one thing clear YES I don't believe everything in the bible. But there are different types of Christians I'll go over another time. And I'm sorry if I mumble and stumble over my words this video I recorded when I was a bit stressed and sleepy. And basically this person does have huge flaws in their arguments. They often ignore legitimante questions and/or block the person. And use the bible just for their own benefit.
And there are Christians who are OFFENDED by this person. She says she's not spreading hate when she is! She may not realize it but SHE IS!
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.

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.
Voices against Discrimination #1 - LGBTdis·crim·i·na·tion: the practice of unfairly treating a person or group of people differently from other people or groups of peopleVoices against Discrimination #1 - LGBT1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I believe a good question would be why do we discriminate?
A simple answer is because we're taught to fear what strays out of social norms, reject the difference, and try to be as normal as possible in order to be accepted in society.
That's a lame answer isn't it? Sadly, most of it is very, very true.
However, here's one thing that we should realize, times changed, we're a new rising generation, unlike our fathers and mothers, and difference is everywhere.
Voices against Discrimination is a blog series aiming to shed light on different part of our society, a window into things and people we usually fear, in hopes that we can make a difference. We chose the first issue to be about the LGBT foundation because it's a big part of our society, and as most of you know, August was pride

Okay, so some time last night the user "Radical-Hat" decided to post me a comment (16 hours ago at present). And yes, I don't think that names should be hidden this time. This person has made themselves fairly well known. Here is the original comment that they left:
"Your show idea is very bad and won't be picked up. You're going to block me for actual critisism, I know, but I'm going to screencap this for truth.
Your character designs are literally the most generic white people ever. Brown hair. Green/Blue eyes. Anime style. Wow so good. Not. It is so generic and wont get noticed by anyone.
The names are also generic as fuck

You are not a loyal fan.
Do you know what makes your group unique, special and fun?
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).

Today, I actually finally got an acknowledgment from Craig Pravda. This guy is A) the name on the paypal account of art4love, and B) shows up on a couple of other shady websites with Chad Love Lieberman, the dude who stole my art, other people's art, rather foolishly Marvel and DC's art etc.
So Craig Pravda has a Google+ account. There is one public post on it. It is about seafood. For lack of any other contact option, I commented there, asking (quite politely, might I add!) about how I could reach Chad Love Lieberman.
Today, I actually got a reply. So far as I've heard, this is the first comment any of 'em have made that I've run across.
For those not on Google+, it says the following:
