PE - The Beef with BasesWelcome to the Beef with Bases article. This may get a little controversial, so put on your heavy duty hats!PE - The Beef with Bases3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
By now, we should all know what a base is. But just for a refresher - A base is a bald, naked figure for people to 'doll' clothes onto. Lately, more people have been making animal bases as well. Some argue that since they can't be dressed up, they aren't proper bases. But a base is a vague term to begin with.
Why do so many people make bases? What's the allure? Many people just start doodling and end up with a body they don't plan on finishing. So why let it go to waste? They fix it up a bit and let other people use it, so maybe others will find inspiration where theirs left off. Other times people are inspired by a pose, and want to practice their anatomy and draw the body. Sometimes people even have an idea in mind - say... a big set of mermaid poses! And more frequently, people see a piece of art t

Averus Ramba-lambalingIn response to the response I got from this: , a lot of people actually wanted to know more about him . m . I was very surprised, really xD; So, I decided not only would I write about Avreus, but how the miniverse came to be.Averus Ramba-lambaling4 years ago in Personal More Like This
"miniverse" is so cannon now to call my 5 worlds of existence haha. they can be seen here, and it may prove useful to look back to reference while reading this freakin' wall of text: http://img838.imageshack.us/img838/233/theuniverse.png
this also explains a lot of the Other World's religion, known as Avaycism, too. So, the mythology goes as follows:
Averus had always existed, and never not. He was simply there since time had began, resting peacefully in a deep slumber. When he awoke, he found himself in an expanse of whiteness that extended every which way, seemingly with no end. He wandered about in this blank world with no real purpose or direction, and fate had it that he finally found something other than him that existed.
Yamino's Coloring TipsA lot of people tell me they like the way I color! It's pretty easy once you learn the tricks. I made a set color palette for each character (keeping their base colors consistent in any setting), then add shading and lighting effects over the image.Yamino's Coloring Tips3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

And here is the Photoshop file to see how I layer the effects. Hope this helps.

Hello, welcome to Dolling 101! We'll be going over all the basics that every beginner doller should know. There's a lot, so let's get to it!
Lesson 1: Terminology/Vocabulary
What is a Doll?
It might help to begin this article by telling you what you're reading about! A doll, or as we call them on DeviantArt, Digital Dolls, are small graphics, usually pixel-art, of people and characters. People create these by taking a base body another person has made, and creating art on it - designing clothes and hair, and turning the blank template into whatever kind of character they can imagine.
I will go over dolls more in detail, but that's the very basic description. Please, read on!

Bases! You're probably familiar with this term. That's right, those pixel line-arts of bald/naked people that

I started this journal because I had been dissatisfied with my art skills so since May 28, 2011, I've been on the hunt for material to help me out. PLEASE NOTE: This journal gets UPDATED! So check back every few months or so for anything new! And if you find something useful, please suggest it! If you have your own collection of resource links, please share them! And if you're browsing this list and encounter a site link that no longer works, let me know.
ANNOUNCEMENT! My journal is becoming too big. So soon in the future, I will be making a PART 2 to this journal. Some of these sections will be moved there, and the ones left behind will be expanded upon!!! Please continue to leave suggestions. Let me know what has helped you out. I would love to know.

fandom things I don't understandIf there are two things I don't understand with fandoms it's when:fandom things I don't understand3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) People say "so-and-so doesn't get enough love" or "this character could use more attention" when it's actually one of the most popular characters in the fandom and you can find at least six billion pieces of fanart or material related to said character by doing one search alone.
2) People think they're "special" or "just weird like that ^__^" for liking 'psycho' characters. The "lol yea im sort of different becuz my fetish is crazy guys/chicks/characters and i guess that makes me strange lolol xD" variety.
Because seeing at least ten million characters, original or established, with the same 'tude grin, blood-covered mouth, goffick or scene attire, and "i-will-lick-this-bloody-knife-to-show-how-hardcore-i-am" generic anime "crazy person" pose is something you'd never find in a million years.
Actually, no. I do understand. I just think it's dumb.
That is all.
Edit: To prevent misunderstanding, that's not to say there

So! If you don't mind me butchering your face as I attempt to draw it, I would love if you could send me a photo of you! Simple face picture, you can be making a strange expression or not, but I'd like it to be decently big in size (so i can see enough detail XD) and umm....... bust-up. I don't want any crazy arms flailing around or anything ;_; just a face. Maybe shoulders and chest, but yeah.
You get it.
But if you don't! Something like this:
I'll attempt to draw you if um... if I ever get around to it. ;A;

Artists on Writers - No. 1, Hermann HesseArtists on Writers - No. 1, Hermann Hesse2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Issue No. 1|Archives
I was inspired to create this series by naikki while looking through her gallery of diverse artwork and reading through her journals which are focused on her favorite inspiring writers and thinkers. I felt certain there must be beautiful artwork in the form of portraits and tributes to these writers and their stories. I found most of naikki's choices of quotes to be inclusionary, redeeming and welcoming to any artist on their own path. Instead of just crediting naikki with the inspiration for this new series on depthRADIUS, I also invited her to provide a quote about Herman Hesse of her own to kick off this series.

Nothing's better than nothingOh god.Nothing's better than nothing3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well... this time I have a really good excuse for the lack of new comics and my general inactiveness on here. There's been some family dramarama going on this past month or so, resulting in me having very little time or privacy, since I'm sharing my apartment now. And I don't think the situation will change anytime soon, but I will try to get more organized and adjust better after the easter holidays. So you can expect some new stuff by the end of next weekend.
But for now, I offer you some of my old, pointless sketches:
I've gotten a bit better since my last depression-fueled journal entry, mostly because I'm constantly getting distracted, but anything's better than the mindset I was in then.
So, yeah, I don't really know what else to write. So much happened since the beginning of March, that there's no point trying to put it all down in words, so I won't even try, so here's a picture of Adam Jensen, Snake and a couple of Shinkies being all kawaii

The one who lived...I had a creepy dream last night.The one who lived...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It was pitch black darkness, a rolling gray mist surrounded the bottoms of charred dead trees. The world seemed to be in black and white as a huge search party combed these dry dead woods looking for two boys, aged 9, who have gone missing. Everyone is convinced these two have been kidnapped. At some point people start hearing whispers. They recognize the whispers as the voice of a child, a boy and immediately know that it's one of the boys whose gone missing, but no one can figure out where he is, or which one of the two boys. So they call out, asking him who he was, and the boy whispers "the one who lived" and they'd keep asking but he would never give his name.
cut to 20 years later (present day)
Two boys around the same age go missing in the same woods... i think in my head they were Ben and Chaba, but in the dream I wasn't present day me so it couldn't have been them, plus they were 9, ben and chaba are 19 and 21 respectively.

The wind was not in our favor as it blew the flames towards us. Mom and dad immediately turned on the hose and watered down our house and the palm tree in front of us which was directly in the line of fire, while i called the fire department... first time ever i've dialed 911.
The fire was taken care of, but it was definitely an exciting few minutes. and the only casualty was a 20 year old palm tree which completely turned to ash...
2013 is already shaping up to be a very exciting year.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
3am update : apparently the fire dept comes back to check on fires to make sure nothing started up again?

But yeah, if you guys do celebrate it in your country, have a safe halloween xD
This day actually holds more meaning to me coz it's also the birthday of my youngest sister, Kiola! (I have and always will make fun of her name. lulz)
She's just this adorable little thing who turned 8 today

Plus, today's also the anniversary of my dad's car accident which resulted to him getting hip surgery ._.

I have grown very angry, and tired of these vicious rumors that are killing people and even scaring kids at the age of 4 years. That should not be happening! These kids do not need to hear this crap because they are going to worry themselves over it. Many people are now committing suicide because of this crazy garbage! The only thing that is going to happen on Dec.21, 2012 is a polar shift change! A polar shift change! That means prepare to get your butts warm because we are going to have a very cold winter!

My brother's friend, whose been a jehovahs witness all his life (he's 28 today) has never had a birthday in his life. Well my brother decided, after over 10 years of friendship, this year he would give his friend his very first birthday (Ivan left the religion a few years back, so it wasn't a question of disrespecting his beliefs). Together with a handful of friends (it was supposed to be 10... last count there's still around 25 people floating around... but the music if mostly turned down so that's about half of what we had earlier) they decided to throw him a surprise party. And boy was this party full of surprises.
October is also the month of halloween so we had a lot of people coming in costumes. It was a last minute addition to the party, we have a big box of halloween supplies so I pulled out two long skirts, a sash of fabric, a pirate shirt and a long wig and then came out of the garage as a gypsy. It was a pretty nice costume o

"I've mentioned this before, however, that was a long time ago when I had less of a following and perhaps less of an impact.
When you tell a fellow artist "Oh I wish I was as good as you!" or say things like "You're so talented I'm just going to stop making art/killmyself/cry", you don't flatter them. At best, you're merely raising them up by putting yourself down and they don't want that. At worst, you are making them very uncomfortable or actively distressing them. Even if you think you're joking, remember that this person probably hears this very frequently. It's a sore point. They may have some kind of emotional response to it beyond irritation.
So, let's go over the basics:
Wow, you've got a lot of skill!
You inspire me to work harder to become as good as you are.
Oh, you're so talented, I wish I was as talented as you!
You're so talented, I give up.
Remember that your words have an effect.
Yes, thank you! W

You know what I think Makorra might actually be right now?
The writers punishing the Zutara shippers who shipped it even after it was made clear Mai was Zuko's girl, and Katara was Aang's, and wanted the couples to break up and made it scarily clear.
Both had significant or close to significant others, and yet there was quite a vocal fandom that wanted Katara to drop everything for Zuko, or vice versa, without even caring that these relationships were legitimately written and lovingly fleshed out
I mean, look at it
Fire Nation guy dating a rich-ass nonbender, and the people wanted him to drop the nonbender's rich ass for a water tribe girl he barely knows
Differences here is that Mai still loved Zuko because he didn't leave her for another chick. Katara was hostile and didn't trust Zuko unconditionally. Zuko still had his honor and pride, and reconciled with Mai. And he had a lot of character development BECAUSE he didn't pull relation
