Obligatory dA logo journalObligatory dA logo journal9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I found out like on thee day they posted their 'upgraded logo' that they'd (likely) just stolen/copied the logo of another site
and it's like PAHAHAHA, really?
I know I should be mad or disappointed but... I just can't be. It's just fucking hysterical when you get down to it. An art site...supposedly centered around community and sharing art...steals a logo from another art site?
Although... I doesn't much surprise me since you know, despite all the utter bullshit they've had going on with art theft among their members and such, why wouldn't they gank another site's logo? I mean who needs copyright or reserved rights, right?
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh irony, you fickle fucker.
On a personal level I think the logo is rubbish. It's nothing but a 'z' with a line through it.
Is it a new minimalist phase or something?
My first cosplay..The story of how I got my first cosplay is one filled with.. Well.. Unlucky happenings, a bit of jealousy and also a lot of fun.My first cosplay..3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think I've been wanting to cosplay for like.. two years now? Yeah, I've been an otaku for quite a while now, but the 'cosplay' thing never got me anywhere. Why? Because I never knew how to get a costume. Besides.. I didn't know who I should cosplay.
I had watched various animes, but my favorite characters were either boys or.. I didn't like the clothes. I'm not quite able to cosplay as boys either. I didn't want to cosplay people who were just wearing a school uniform or anything of the like, I wanted something special. In the end, I started to think of Kagamine Rin. She's my favorite vocaloid after all. (Next to Len though.) But I didn't like the fact that you could actually see her legs and her belly, so I just couldn't decide if I wanted to do her or not.
At the same time, I was thinking about Crona. As 'he' wasn't a boy or a girl for sure, it was alrigh

Art Block AdviceHope this helps~Art Block Advice1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sorry writers, but maybe some of these tips will help you out too?
Disclaimer: This is just how I experience art block, I understand that it probably won't help everyone.
I don't recall experiencing art block in the sense that I don't know what to do draw, just that I don't like what I drew.
So I'm afraid in that respect- opening requests from people would help? If you don't know what to draw, perhaps being told what to draw would help???
Art block is a terrible, terrible thing. We’ve all had it. And writer’s get writer’s block. Unfortunately, I am only going to focus on how to get over art block and diminish it until it’s a mere hurdle that you can either step over or kick down. Whatever you prefer.
I have not had genuine, crippling art block in over a year. I’ve had moments- fleeting little moments every few months, but I get over them in half an hour at the most.
That probably sounds pretty n
I'm teaming up with SkillShare to offer classes!Hey everyone! So I've been in talks with the folks over at SkillShare.com to design and offer classes about drawing and illustration for their upcoming new topic sectors of their site.I'm teaming up with SkillShare to offer classes!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've always loved to share my knowledge and feedback for free, but the unfortunate truth is that it's incredibly hard to do that when you're flat broke almost 100% of the time. So at least through SkillShare I can make money while providing you guys with even higher-quality learning resources. SkillShare isn't a live, real-time service. Instead, the classes are based around the production of videos and additional materials that you attack at your own pace. [Think DigitalTutors but... not expensive.] Then you work on projects that I assign and share them with the rest of the class, where I and your peers talk and offer feedback and help one another. It's supportive and collaborative!
Now, what topics would you most want to see me cover as courses? What wo
Things I learned at: The Industry Workshops 2014Holy shit amazeballs... this past weekend....Things I learned at: The Industry Workshops 20141 year ago in Personal More Like This
But let me start of by shortly telling you what the industry workshops actually were.
(The artwork in this journal are from some of the lecturers.)
What is: #IW_14?
The Industry workshops took place last weekend August 29 to 31 2014, at 2 venues both located at Hoxton Square, London United Kingdom.
It was organized and hosted by a group of industry professionals in the fields of concept art, matte painting and illustration in film, games and freelance.
Let me name the people that profited the lectures and demo's from 10 in the morning to 8 in the evening, ending with a 1+ hour QA session as seen on the picture below.

Underdogs who get ripped offI'm sure a lot of people get down and out about not getting views or favs. I'm probably down around I'd say 80%. And I know why. It's because I stopped posting color animals and felines doing cool magic stuff.Underdogs who get ripped off2 years ago in Personal More Like This
On this note, it's rather easy to be popular on dA. Do something cool, and neat in color and be nice to everyone, even the bonafide jerks and hide your tracings and stealing well.
Of course not everyone popular does this crap. But a good amount does, a good amount meaning I feel it should be 0 but I already know 5 who does this out of the 100s I've seen. (I don't watch them though of course )
On this note if you see anyone on dA taking the easy way out on art who gets defensive or emo over their art, but ALSO causes you grief, just remember that they aren't being true to artistry. Anyone who does the drama llama over art isn't an artist imo.
That's why I'm a true fan of the underdogs on dA, especially the ones that get ripped off.
Why you no sequel?Hello, everyone!Why you no sequel?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm making this journal to clear some stuff as well as give you some updates.
First off, I'm very happy on the reception of the finale. I have given it a week to simmer and most of the feedback is positive. I was worried uploading this because the beginning and the ending of a story are what make and leave the biggest impression. The main reoccurring complaint I see is that the ending was dragged out. Really this was intentional and directive intention. More often than not I see complaints of rushed ending and no closure so I tried to make sure I closed everything with a nice little bow. For example, look at Return Of The King, there is still almost 45 minutes left in the movie after the Ring is destroyed and it's revered as one of the best trilogies of all time- not comparing my work to it of course, but I was influenced by it. Long story short, I rather have some people complain it was too long rather than it was rushed. You could always just close it as soon as tria

The Emotions of Writing It's hard to catch the true intensity of pain; not the physical kind but the deep agony of loss, betrayal, and the bitterness of love gone wrong.The Emotions of Writing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I remember an assignment in one of my first advanced lit classes from ages ago. Our teacher told us to write about the saddest thing that had ever happened to us and to explain how we felt in great detail.
This wasn't a class where you could write 'my grandpa died and it made me sad', or 'my dog got run over and I cried all night'. That wasn't what the teacher wanted; she wanted us to express in writing as best we could the full range of emotions we'd experienced. From the racing pulse, to the numbness of denial, to anger, to that gut wrenching acceptance, to the hot tears – she wanted it all.

Death of an empireOn the edge of the universe..Death of an empire3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I watch the life of the oldest sun die...
A black hole engulfing her slowly...
I feel for her....to die alone.....
I wish I could ease her strain....
Shooting stars fly past in groups of two...
Like guardians of the black sea...
They tell their queen her final goodbyes...
Her children surrounding her begin to shake....
Their empire slowly changes....
Its dead silent...yet there cries are all I can hear....
A tear runs down my cheek and turns to ice...
The final flashes of light slowly start to dim..
And rogue planets are all that remain....
Orphans with no mother...doomed to travel the same path until they to perish...

Goodbye Street GalleryIn few days, a whole year will have passed since the day I took over dA's Street Gallery as Street Community Volunteer.Goodbye Street Gallery3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A neglected gallery, full of misplaced images, but also with many worthy submissions.
I visited this galllery everyday, cleaning it (the 24h and 1month popular pages) and informing the photographers of the misplaced images (every single one of them), what Street is all about.
At the same time, 3 days per week, I featured a worthy image as a Street Daily Deviation, taking in account your suggestions as well. The featured images were not necessarily the "best" of the featured deviants. My intention was not to feature "bests" but to draw the community's attention, to active Street photographers, both experienced and new to the genre, in order to boost their dedication to Street. I am content because a lot of times I succeeded.
During this year, a lot of people helped me with their suggestions and with working in Groups, promoting the genre and de
