The Pitfalls of Speed PaintingI've been meaning to write about this for a while now, but recently a video popped on up Ctrl+Paint about the same topic and it encouraged me to finally talk about it. It's a practice that's been misconstrued and misunderstood for a while now, so I wanted to help people get a proper understanding on the subject.The Pitfalls of Speed Painting4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Speed painting has been something of a fad for 4 or 5 years now, even back when I was first starting digital work. Like many artists out there, I thought, "Sweet, I can do really cool work, really fast!" And like many artists out there, in the back of my head I was probably thinking, "This is easier than learning the normal way!"
Well, here's the main problem in regards to speed painting. Any of those really cool, realistic and well done speed paintings you see are done by professionals who have been painting for years and years. These a

...seriously guys?There's drama...?...seriously guys?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
you're going to encounter "dramatic" stuff through out your WHOLE life, if you don't know how to deal with it then you're going to have a really hard time at school, work, blah blah blah.
Now, I'm not sure if there's any major issues right now, but I'm just going to point some things out since this "drama" is always coming back
1) deactivating- do NOT say you're going to deactivate, that makes some people worry and EVERYTIME people either don't go through with it, or they just come back. if you can't deal with it just say you're taking a break, don't completely deactivate.
2) "duplicates/clones"- ...are we seriously going to argue about that still...? I'm pretty sure everyone stopped caring about that back in August. Now, let me just say this... I'm not sure about everyone else but I didn't like there being more than one of an account because it became confusing and complicated. I don't want to see any more issues about that because eventually we gave up

Let's talk about bullying.I know this may come as a shock to most of you (a-hem), but I was a weird kid. I was awkward. I had funny hair and bad skin. I liked creepy things. All those "mean" teachers who seemed like they hated everyone? They loved me. Meanwhile, some of the really popular teachers were calling my parents to express concern over the stories I wrote (for which I can't actually blame them. Subtlety, like pimples, takes time to master). So, yes, I got my share of bullying. Every day. Everywhere. And the sad part is? There were kids who had a rougher time of it than me, but I didn't feel like I could stand up for them without making my own situation worse.Let's talk about bullying.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It shouldn't be like that, but it still is. You can tell kids "It won't be like this forever" but it's impossible to see that far ahead when just getting through each day without being noticed is an impossible feat. Just when you think you've had a good day, some well-meaning Home Ec teacher gives you an award in front of the whole school
DC puss out.While at my local comic-book emporium, I had a quick leaf through Harley Quinn #0 to check out the winning page from DC’s recent talent search.DC puss out.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It didn’t do much to dampen the disdain I harbour for the big-name comic companies.
For a start, I’m not sure how that page was selected as the cream of the crop. Bravo to the artist for being selected, sure, but there were far more dynamic, lively examples I saw posted here on DA, and I'm genuinely surprised that none of them were chosen. The page selected feels just as stiff, stagnant, sterile and devoid of life as much of the other stuff DC discharges onto the shelves (which might have been why they ran with it).
The main gripe I have, though, is that they changed the final panel.
For those that (somehow) missed the whoo-haa that the whole talent search kicked off: the script DC provided to their would-be artists called for illustrations depicting the titular Harley trying to off herself in a series of absurd ways: holding

My deviantART StoryOK I'll biteMy deviantART Story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I've almost been on this site for 10 years! In December it will have been 10. The only reason I started using my account was because my friend AmandaTurnage started using hers, and I wanted to be cool too, although I'd browsed here before that. The word "deviant" kinda turned me off initially (thought process "hey no I'm not deviant"), but now the word has lost nearly all of its original meaning, haha.
Without deviantArt I'm not sure I'd be where I am today, with just enough internet-cred to make friends with all the cool artists and get enough money out of my hand and to continue to put food in my mouth... but I've gone from idly doodling my characters (who got to go in The Meek 4 years later) and drawing reptiles/ dreaming of being an independent artist, to doing Avatar fanart, making tutorials and finally doing paid art for soulless corporations. I've circled back around now though and am spending my time again drawing my characters and planning comics, and doing meani

HellosHiya,Hellos1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Been away for quite some time! I'm thinking about transitioning slowly back in though; I posted something the other day and kinda forgot how nice it is to be able to read and respond to comments directly.
What have I been up to? Mostly making games (both facebook and mobile), but I recently transitioned back to freelance to finish an interesting business-oriented book that I am finding pretty fulfilling. And some illustration work, and some other comics... Also working on my own stuff but of course freelance and commissions are a priority
I think I'm happier now than I've been in a while: I live in a pretty cool area, have cool friends who do lots of different and interesting things, and for the first time in a while, free time with which to do my personal stuff. Big change from my usual working-my-ass-off-and-barely-having-time-to-breathe schedule. Also freelancing lets me choose the kind of thing I want to work on, which is a nice change from games (for now). I really can't

Sherlock vs ElementaryThe concept of taking the world's greatest detective out of his Victorian era setting and dropping him into 21st Century London shouldn't have worked. It should have failed as miserably as I thought it would.Sherlock vs Elementary4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hooooo. Was I proven wrong on that one.
The scant six episodes of Sherlock contain some of the best material the BBC has ever produced and proved that the detective can work his deductive wizardry in any time period.
Which is probably why CBS have gone all Chinese and are ripping it off.
When I heard that there was going to be an "American version" of the show; the eye twitched but didn't bat. This happens, and often HAS to happen. A show must fit with the scheduling, and US series are a lot longer than those on British TV, so things have to be stretched.
THEN I learned that it's NOT a remake of BBC's Sherlock, but a brand new series called "Elementary", which is "radically" different because it's set in New York.
Unsurprisingly, the Beeb are a bit miffed by this.

Illustrations...A lot of work I see passing by now a days is illustration, promotional artwork or so called "hero: pieces.Illustrations...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Concept art that has turned into an illustration or just illustrations which have concepted elements in them.
For those who don't know, a concept piece should define the materials and shapes well enough so that a modeler can model it, a special effect guy can make it, a costume designer can make it etc. From most movie and game company's the concept art never sees daylight and the work that does are promotional pieces which are very different from the actual concept work done in the pre-vis (or pre-visualization) phase.
I was thinking about adding an illustrations folder to the groups gallery for such work so that there is less confusion about this matter.

Below you will see images along with numbers and a description of each tail and it's number. The numbers of each tail start from the left, to the right, if multiple tails, it starts from the top left to the bottom right, going 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. Each tail you see in these images is the exact tail you will receive if purchased. I guarantee you satisfaction on my tails, these are all clean, beautiful, soft, prime tails I've taken the time of fixing up and making them more than worth the price I'm selling them for, I'd sell them for more, but I don't want to be ridiculous, my goal is to be someone a person looks to when interested in a part of an animal, knowing that not only is the price

This entire journal is, in ways, a response to the recent postings on EqD about the youtube take downs, the pony archive destruction, and other related situations. Seth has been very professional on those postings, as well as others including Pixel Kitties who have done very good at setting a lot of bronies straight, and for reasons I'm not sure, I just felt like adding my own few cents into this mix. We need more bronies like them, who actually take time to think things over and look at the problem from the other side. I like to say I do also, but this isn't about me so I'll cut that crap.
