Cosplay Photoshoot EtiquetteMy good friend hikaraseru has written a very good guide on how a standard cosplay photoshoot should be conducted in a conducive manner. I got her permission to post the entire article up, so hope you guys like what she is presenting to us.Cosplay Photoshoot Etiquette2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Want to plan a cosplay shoot, but somehow things just don't turn out right? Maybe the photos were not how you visualised them, or that the photographer seemed to be extra grumpy, or you just don't know what's going on? Read on for how to get the best out of your cosplay shoot:
The 4 Ps:
Having a plan is essential and should take up the most time overall in your shoot. Speak to the photographers closely, because they will be the ones producing the photos that will be the end result; make sure they are aware of the concept and background of the series you're shooting. Some photographers will want to do their own research prior to the shoot (reading the manga/watching the anime/looking up reference photos) - so make sur
Cute Story at Work todayWhile I was working in cleaning a theater room a little boy randomly walked in the room lost. He was like 2 years old, blonde hair with his pacifier. My manger told me to look for his parents. I wasn't sure if the boy was afraid of being alone so I made it into a game.Cute Story at Work today3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Come on kid, let's find you're mother and father."
And he wobbled right behide me following me. AHWWW!!! He was sooo cute! ^.^
I made it as thou we were seeking an adventure, because I didn't want him thinking he was a lost child. He was a boy off to a new world and to find his parents.
Soon after we found a man sitting on a bench looking at his iphone. I pointed to him and told the little boy,
"is that you're father?"
"Daddy!" He said as he ran off to the man who barley noticed the happy yelling for him.
I was kinda getting little mad and walked up to the man, "Is this you're kid sir?"
He said yes and held him.
"well becareful, he was alone in one of the theater rooms. you could of lost him."
The man looked at his kid
Devious Accents `15Have you ever wondered what goes on in the artistic endeavors of a Senior? What makes them tick?Devious Accents `151 year ago in Art Features More Like This
"Devious Accents" is a feature/interview series of Senior Members here on deviantART that aims to surface key features of each Senior and to show them to the community as a whole, brought to you by dAseniors--the official group for Senior Members on deviantART!
Finally, thoughts and sentiments from the Senior-side are revealed to the general community. Let's get started!
Joining us this week will be Kendra-Paige, a skilled photographer and long-time deviant!
MiloticScale: Why did you decide to make the leap and become a deviant?
Kendra-Paige: It was over nine years ago when I joined, when I was a very young teenager still grasping at expression. DeviantART was new and growing at the time, with a rather close-knit community, which was something lacking on other art communities. I believe that’s what drew me to the site at the time
5 Comic Book Truths (that I don't think are true)There are lots of tips, chestnuts, and other pieces of advice that I've heard over the years--tidbits of wisdom passed on from one generation to the next, from professional to professor to prospective student. Some of them are drawing tips, some of them are tricks to dealing with publishers, and some are general guidelines on how to survive in comics. Most of them are useful and true and will stand the test of time, but a few of them have become hackneyed platitudes and have gone unquestioned for too long. Here are 5 that I'm questioning...5 Comic Book Truths (that I don't think are true)7 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. READERS WILL ONLY LOOK AT A PANEL FOR 5 SECONDS, SO DON'T SWEAT IT TOO MUCH.
I understand the intention of this bit of wisdom, and I mostly agree with it: drawing great interiors is important, but at the same time, you don't want to get bogged down with small details that most readers won't even notice.
But here's my concern with this: if you treat every panel like it's disposable, then you're less likely to make an impact with reader

1. Submit 5 pages of black and white sequential art (along with application below) to Murphy.Apprenticeship@gmail.com . The pages must be inked, no pencils and no "darkened pencils" using Photoshop. I want students who can do both! Because I use traditional tools (pencil/ink), I'm more capable of teaching students who also use those tools, but I'm happy to accept digital inking as well. However, if you work digitally, be prepared to bring your own computer/wacom/cintiq materials.
2. The pages can be from any genre/character/script you like. Feel free to write your own story, or use a profe
5 Ways to Avoid Being DiminishedThere's a discussion brewing in comics about artists being more diminished as of late--that readers, reviewers, and publishers are focusing too much on writers rather than the artists who draw the book. I agree it's happening, but I'm not sure it's worth sounding an alarm over. I never felt diminished, but maybe I'm part of the exception. Maybe it's because I'm an artist and a writer.5 Ways to Avoid Being Diminished5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Either way, I do have a few thoughts on what artists can do to pull themselves out from under the rug.
1. DON'T DRAW LIKE A COG.
If you conform to a "house style", then you're at higher risk of being treated like an interchangeable cog in the comics machine. Yes, you're more likely to get consistent work, but you won't stand out as much. Therefor you'll be sought after less by big name writers, you're less likely to make a lasting impression on reviewers and readers, and you'll have a harder time getting raises (12 others draw like you and for less money).
I also suggests inking yourself if it helps. Penc
World's Finest Interview and DC Nation ClipSo a few months back I did an interview for the awesome folks over at World's Finest online regarding my work, we mainly talked about Young Justice and my DC/WB stuff, but we covered some other things as well, including how I broke into the industry and my process and approach to art and design. Anyway, the interview is up on their site now and I just thought I would let you guys know so you could check it out. I get a lot of questions from young artists on this site who want advice or insight into pursuing a career in animation, I think I might write up a FAQ tab for my page compiling the various answers I have given to aspiring creators over the years because it's getting harder and harder to answer individual requests for advice. Anyway, until I do I think this interview might actually shed some light on some of that stuff for now.World's Finest Interview and DC Nation Clip2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Artists of DA SHOWCASE #1Every artist can sometimes use a little extra support, a boost of confidence, or just an opportunity to shine. I've been fortunate to have had a 16 year career in art, doing what I love to do for a living. Along the way, a few veteran artists have encouraged me, given me guidance, and have cheered me onward to becoming a better artist. Over the years I've tried to do the same for other artists in one fashion or another, and I hope to continue to do so. The DA community has been very, very kind to me over the last 5 years, so I want to personally thank everyone who is watching me, faving my work, and leaving comments. It truly makes a guy feel appreciated!Artists of DA SHOWCASE #12 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'd like to start a trend of supporting other artists here in my DeviantArt journal from time to time. I've already been doing that, but I'd like to do this more often. With your help, a lot of artists who don't get the traffic they deserve might finally get some recognition. Who knows...maybe YOUR art might just find it's

So this whole Superfamily thingI don't know, I can't get into it.So this whole Superfamily thing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Don't get me wrong, I fucking love Stony. It's pretty much rocking my entire world at this point.
And I love the idea of Steve and Tony adopting a baby...
It's just the fact that it messes with Peter Parker's canon that bothers me. His parents are supposed to be dead, and he's supposed to be raised by his aunt and uncle. That's how his life is supposed to go. That's how Spiderman is supposed to happen.
I don't like messing with that. Spiderman is like my favorite superhero.
You know what I'd like to see?
What I think would not only make more sense, but would benefit Steve, Tony, and their adopted child?
Mindy. Mindy fucking Macready.
From Kick-Ass, remember her?
Yeah, now it's coming back to you.
Her father was killed at around the 2/3rds mark of the Kick-Ass movie. Which leaves her completely parentless at about 11 years old.
Now, I know it's canon that she ends up moving in with Big Daddy's black friend and going to middle school, bu

I hope it helps!
1. You need a draw.
Ill be using a old one of cake!
2. Save/Export it as BMP! This is important, if you dont save it as .bmp the glitching wont work!
3. Now that you have your .bmp file open it in WORDPAD, yes the normal text editing program!
4. And after you opened it in wordpad it will prolly look something like this:
5. DONT CHANGE ANYTHING!
Just click save!
4. And after that, your picture will look something like this:

If you want a different glitch version just open A COPY of your drawing (bmp) and drag a picture or gif file into the code!

To install these plugins, download them, open up your Extension Manager, click ‘install’, and select the .zxp or .mxp file. There should be a description in each file of where to enable the plugin in Flash.

These are a collection of tools to suit your fancy. Most of them do single functions, so read their descriptions and decide what would be useful. I've listed some of the ones I recommend.
For assets and puppet rigging, I would recommend libAppend and Search and Replace, which allow you to rapidly name and rename symbols.FrameEDIT and FrameEXIT make editing nested symbols easier by taking

How To Deal With ART BLOCKSOk, if you guys are still wondering, this post may help you. Its just a way I go on about it.How To Deal With ART BLOCKS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, what is an art block? Just like writer's block, an artist gets an art block. Its a state where you either; can't think of anything to draw, your drawings turn out crap, you're just not getting your drawings right, or just uninspired.
So how do I deal with it?
The very first thing you MUST do is to actually STOP DRAWING. This is your brain telling you to take a break.
If you force yourself out of an art block, it ALWAYS shows. It will look rushed or unthought of.
Second, is try and do something else NOT related to art/creativity... Go for a run, watch TV, read a book, play games, see friends etc.
Third; try and listen to music. Calm your brain and get rid of your thought process. Music is a way of simulation, sometimes you will get inspiration from it.
If you have an idea of what sort of thing you're after but just cant get it right in the end, this is where I think music helps. E
