I enjoy reading the daily news and having a cup of coffee every morning. I scan the headlines on my laptop and eat up all the latest scientific discoveries, local weather, and international news. I enjoyed reading about the asteroid that came close to hitting Earth because it reminds me of how fragile and insignificant we are here on our little blue marble. Our place in the Universe is pretty much meaningless in terms of time and space, yet we think we are not only important but THE singularly important species. A silly thought in my book.
Also in the news I read this: http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2013/05/31/southern-baptists-to-urge-churches-and-members-to-cut-boy-scout-ties/?hpt=hp_t2 It seems a group of humans 16 million strong can't associate with another group of humans because of who they choose to love. It mak

Fantastic Artists Feature - May 2012This month is a special feature of some of my favourite comic artists!Fantastic Artists Feature - May 20123 years ago in Personal More Like This
Despite only having posted one page so far, I am very eager to see what will happen next in her beautifully drawn comic for the theme of "Lost and Found." She manages to convey in a single page a more profound sense of loss and desperation than many artists can achieve in fifty pages. The visuals are striking, and her characters are both aesthetically and emotionally appealing.
Equal parts humour and sincerity, her comic "Kay and P" is full of creative, well-conceived characters and engrossing dialogue. The interactions between the diverse cast members will leave you hungry to learn more about them... plus, where else have you seen a more charming and expressive animated skeleton?
Despite having a number of comic series under her belt, "Souffrance
Your Guide to Chain LettersThis is being posted because recently you received a chain letter that you may or may not have passed on.

My day with a pack of wolfdogs (photos)A month ago, I had the privilege of walking with a pack of eight wolfdogs for about two hours. It was a wonderful and interesting experience! These animals are beautiful both in looks and character. So much energy and intelligence. Always aware of their environment and yet very much in control of themselves.My day with a pack of wolfdogs (photos)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
We also walked with three small/tiny dog breeds and at first I was worried they'd get hurt when the wolfdogs were having their playfights out in the open (safe) country areas. But the wolfdogs never harmed the little dogs. All the wolfdogs ever did was sniff at them and then leave them alone.
The playfights between the wolfdogs would usually take split seconds, and they'd look very violent, but the wolfdogs never actually bit. They merely grabbed the other wolfdogs with their teeth. Not a single injury was caused.
Not saying wolfdogs are easy to keep as pets. In only my two hours of experience I came to agree with what their responsible owners had to say; "A wolf

I am dreadfully sorry for the wait for this
Lately I haven't had the time to sit down and look the entries over, so I am ashamed to say I haven't actually fully judged them yet.
I know, I'm terrible ;u;
I will spend the next week doing just that, and by August 20th, expect the winners to be announced.
Due to the fact I have withdraw all points as paypal in order to pay for my kitten's vet trip this coming friday, I do NOT have the points promised as prizes.
I will not be failing on this though, I will be earning the points back, and I aim to have all prizes paid by September 15th.
Again, Im sorry for this.
Real life comes first, and because of this its unlikely I will make a contest again, learning that I don't have the stability to properly deal with it.
So winners on the 20th, prizes by the 15th of Sept.

What the judges were saying: Usually we don't choose entries with preexisting designs, but this idea seems so Disney we simply could not resist! It seems like it'd make a great movie in the same line as Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers. An enchanting idea that made us wish we could watch it right now!

Common Digital Painting Mistakes FAQHi everyone! I'm so happy so many of you enjoyed my tutorial!Common Digital Painting Mistakes FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you for all your +favs and comments -- it's been awesome . A lot people have been asking similar questions which weren't answered in the original tutorial. Here's some FAQ that will hopefully clear things up:
1. How do you do this in Paint Tool SAI?
Unfortunately, I don't have Paint Tool SAI so I don't have an exact answer for this. However, I've heard that it's similar so you should be able to translate most of the Photoshop tips into SAI. Also, most of the tips are conceptual and function in traditional work as well as digital, so the program you are using shouldn't hinder you too much in applying them.
2. What size should I make my canvas?
This has been a really common question and the answer is that it depends on the complexity of the work and the amount of detail you are trying to achieve. I make my canvases in the thousands of pixels at least. A rule of thumb that I use is
