with a quote from Roy Batty, the doomed replicant (android) who was given human emotions to be able to appreciate
all the wonders of life, including the visual, but afforded only four years of

8 reasons why 2014 is YOUR year!To all artists, big and small. 8 reasons why 2014 will be your year!8 reasons why 2014 is YOUR year!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. The online art community is bigger than ever. Finding them on Facebook, Deviantart, Cghub, Tumblr, Twitter, Blogspot and so on. It's massive!!
2. Google hangout. Such a great way of communicating directly to your fellow artists! And to keep the 'bound-at-home' artists form getting lonely
3. Livestreams, less direct, but easy to watch previous video's from awesome artists. See how they do what they do! And when they're live, you also get a chance to ask questions or socialize!
4. Online mentoring, sometimes free other times for a small fee, and now and then for the more in-depth a reasonable price, yet way intenser and personal than many (expensive) allround-artschools.
5. Concept-Artschool's. Yes! I see them more and more, mainly in America and Asia. Please bring them to Europe!!!
6. Conventions Get-together'
My Thoughts on Tropes vs Women...Honesty time guys. I've had a lot of people ask me my opinion of Anita Sarkeesian and Tropes vs Women. What I may have to say may not make some people happy, in fact, it might just piss you right off. But I respect my audience enough to be fully candid with them as I am similar to her when it comes to real matters and how they effect gaming and gamers.My Thoughts on Tropes vs Women...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
At best, I am indifferent with her. Don't get me wrong, I think her research is good, but a few things bother me. One is I just don't like her presentation. It's dry and really matter of fact, which to me is just plain boring. The information is good, but it's just hard for me to sit through. And yes I know that she is working on a book, or other scholarly work, and to do such, well you can't always be wacky. It just didn't pull me in. The other thing is she doesn't allow for comments.
"Gaijin you dolt! Do you even know the hardships she went through?! The rape and d
Missing the PointI've been noticing a trend lately where people seem to deliberately be missing the point behind stuff in order to complain. I used to think it was just me, as I watched people write up lengthy articles nitpicking and "debunking" a comic I made because they simply missed the point, but I've started seeing it happening to other people too.Missing the Point3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently over on The Oatmeal, artist Matthew Inman made a joke about guy gamers vs girl gamers. The joke was pretty simple: A guy gamer makes a mistake and gets bitched out by his fellow teammates online. Contrast to that, a girl gamer makes a mistake and her fellow teammates try to comfort her, tell her she's doing great, and make suggestive comments about hooking up. To me the joke was clear, guys treat girls differently online. However, that's not how the rest of the internet saw it...
From what I've read of the whole Oatmeal flare up, the reasons for the hate seem grounded in the fact he depicted the girl as blond and bubbly (ie: stupid) and not as

Disclaimer: I'm no lawyer, I do not work for deviantArt, I'm merely someone who has been doing photomanips for quite a while and has taken the time to read quite a few articles on the topic. The views expressed hereunder are mine alone. They do not reflect any "official dA opinion" nor are they to be taken as "legal advice". Furthermore, you may live in a country that hasn't signed any of the treaties that govern international copyright law, so you'd have to check with your country's national laws.

I'm sure many of you don't know the story of what I've been up to, so I'm going to summarize a very long story for you.
Back in April 2012, I posted an image of me holding my original HTTYD movie ticket, and had a long story of how the movie changed me. A friend by the name of Jeffrettalyn suggested I send the letter to Dreamworks, to hear what they have to say.
I was in my last semester of school at the time, and around the same time, a friend of mine suggested I make a plush and send it to Dreamworks. After spending some time thinking and questioning others about it, I decided to go forward with it when I could, and send both together.
I believe it was September 18th when I finally started working on it, and I didn't finish it until late February! After pouring in more time into this Toothless plush than any other before, I hesitated to send it away, for I had grown quite attached to it. I talked with many people, and tried to get as much support as possible. 5 Weeks
Console Generation RantThis generation of video game consoles has been completely off my radar. Even my fanboy lust of all things Nintendo can’t make me save up enough money to buy a Wii-U. I don’t know if it’s because I’ve become jaded over the last console war, or if I’m just moving on away from consoles into other avenues of gaming (ie: PC gaming), but something about this generation just defies interest for me.Console Generation Rant2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of it is just head inducing nonsense like this: http://www.theverge.com/2013/11/8/5080750/xbox-one-day-one-patch-required-to-play-games The Xbox One requiring a day one patch TO PLAY VIDEO GAMES. I mean, when the Ps3 launched it required a day one patch to play Blu-Ray movies, that’s not so bad though since you could still play games. But the Xbox One comes out and you literally can’t do anything with it if you don’t have an internet connection. For how much you paid for that device that’s pretty shitty.
And all the consoles are doing crap

Wouldn't it be nice if we could achieve the goals that we are working towards more quickly?
The world is speeding up all around us, and thankfully we're able to speed up as well and get more of what we want in less time. Here's some tips that will help you become the artist that you want to be more quickly.
Don't make mistakes - gain experience...
When you are learning if you think too critically of your work it may cause your brain some discomfort. The brain likes to succeed so when you don't quite get the results that you were aiming for, with the wrong attitude it can cause you some distress. Instead of looking at these attempts as 'failures,' you should see them always as opportunities to grow and gain experience.
The problem with looking at a work as a 'failure' is that it won't be too long u

Nerd/Gaming/Comic Culture Sexism VideosSince this keeps being a reoccurring topic I thought I'd lend a hand and put together a comprehensive list of web shows and youtube videos that pretty much explain or talk about these various topics. The vast majority of these will be from Jimquisition and MovieBob's various shows (because in my eyes they're the two biggest proponents out there discussing this stuff on a regular basis), but there's a couple other web shows too. They've been all categorized and easily separated so you can pick and choose whatever you wanna watch.
