A little opinion...About the frontage thing... I think more than change the "popular" system, a new options set for the frontage are needed. This is not because I could be somewhat affected by the change, my pics keep appearing in FrontPage and the watchers are still following my work (and I thank you so much for that ) but because I saw a lot of people misplacing art and taking advantage of the new system, helping even more to create the odd idea of a popularity "goal/prize". I like the idea of the popular frontage because it works pretty much like a musical ranking and it was a tool to know public´s preferences: wich kind of concepts/ideas/colors/styles works better and like a test to know the effect of a specific work. Somewhat of democratic voice, that helps to know to the public a bit more.A little opinion...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before you ask, NO, I don't think that the goal of an artist is to be popular and I don't think that "popular=better" I saw both as different parameters that sometimes goes hand by hand and sometimes runs

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another “ism” on the art world horizon, what with the growing accessibility of all
art technique and technology rendering all the “schools of art” equally available and doable and therefore making impossible the dominance
or even existence of any current art “movement” … comes “suggestivism,” the “ism” best summing up what art is in our lives today, defined
more by what it is not, rather than what it is.

Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map

[EVENT] New HorizonsThere's the sound of plastic on rock as Vriska rolled the dice, a creeping grin growing on her face. Of course, her luck was ever present on the roll of the flourite octet, and as quickly as all the dice landed, randomized numbers glowing brightly on the flat faces of the dice, a humongous pair of scissors appearified out of the air and sliced through the chain tethering the troll base to the ruins of Alternia, someone else's Alternia. As the heavy metal of the chain landed on the ground with an earthquaking rumble, Vriska scooped up her dice and quickly absconded into the base. Kicking down several doors and scaling several stairs, it wasn't long until the azureblooded ghost-girl found herself in a small cockpit at the very top of the base that all the other trolls and humans called their home of operations; quickly wardrobifying herself into the stainless, pristine pirate uniform, she flipped on a big, domineering pirate hat and slapped a cold, gray hand onto the steering wheel of th[EVENT] New Horizons1 year ago in Personal More Like This

If you have the guts I didn't, to watch the whole video,
then even if you stopped halfway, you'll see the eyes of a raccoon dog, skinned alive, stare into the camera, while clinging to its hopeless life.
For clarification, I am not in anyway a supporter nor am I affiliated with PETA.
So if PETA is another concern and problem, then it's just another one we'll have to fix.
And yes, this specific one is staged, but my point isn't that this is how people skin animals, it's that these animals are dying REGARDLESS of the cause and reason behind it.

I have recently gotten notes about my Stylized commissions and I have NOT REPLIED thus far.
For one, I would like to apologize to anyone who has asked, but I thought just knock out all the notes in one sweep.
I will be temporarily removing my Stylized work from the options because I did those only for a short while for Experiment species.
I don't think I'll be using that style for anything else, so I am afraid those examples are a bad sort of thing to advertise for.
Not to mention they're quite old... :'D
BUT. Regardless. I'm afraid I will not be doing Stylized until I think of a better style that is universal for any character.
On another note, I would also like to add that I have been slow to do any requested commissions as of late.
I have been somewhat absent, or just not in a drawing mood (and if you know me, that's both rare and very strange behavior for me.) lately, being at lea
