Annoying things about ProtagonistsI just read an arguably excruciatingly terrible series to the end because I'm masochistic :iconsulkplz: and also because I like to give the author time to redeem themselvesAnnoying things about Protagonists1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not going to name this series because I'm trying to brain bleach every part of it from my memory :iconbrainbleachplz:
but nevertheless the Protagonist was so painfully annoying that I cheered when I thought he had been killed off
(But of course not, he gets resurrected and with even more world obliterating powers. yay. )
Anyhow this inspired me to make this short list just off the top of my head of cliches and tropes
that I find annoying when handled badly by an author, or things that aren't given any reason or context
or simply seem implausible that jar my suspension of beleif and ruin my experience.
My friend wanted to see it so I thought I'd ask you guys if you could lengthen the list
Now I would like to disclaimer that this is my own opinion and that any of these ideas can be handled well,

Self Portrait Challenge!Ok, so this is kinda linking back with something I thought about doing aages ago. But the main idea came from talking with some of you lovely people and the comments from this journal here: http://fav.me/d61xe9iSelf Portrait Challenge!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The power of self-perception, and the confidence (or lack thereof) you gain from it, does affect how you act and the choices you make in your life. And no I'm not talking about the whole "you are beautiful" thing so much as, how you see and percieve yourself. How we see ourselves is completely different to how other people see us.
I do notice this a lot, being a stock artist and having lots of artists draw me. One was worried that I'd be offended that he drew my legs a little large or something like that. Hell, doesn't bother me. Draw me as you see me, as how you percieve me, as how you want your art to turn out. The rest is superfluous really, since I play a character in my stock sets and none of them are really set as a piece to show me as well, me.
So that's my idea. Kinda l

Update about My Cancer, Good and Bad News.Hey guys, I hope everyone is doing great, I wanted to give everyone a quick update. I wanted to let everyone know how things were going and what I have been up too. As always thanks to everyone for all the amazing support and kind words from my last journal.Update about My Cancer, Good and Bad News.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Since that last journal, I have been busy fighting the cancer and went thru a couple of more chemo sessions. I just had a new one a couple of weeks ago and while I was going thru that session, which is over a week. I noticed that I was having trouble breathing and a couple of times nearly passed out. During a session, one of my nurses took some blood to check the oxygen content and found out it was extremely low. The doc was worried about that and they took me to the Hospital where they did some scans on me and found out I had some blood clots in my lungs, they moved quickly to get me in the hospital and start meds to fight the blood clots before they had a chance to move to my brain and kill me.
In the hospital, I was given d

LIGHTBULB!!!!!!!!!!!!!ok, so a lot of you saw that i was deleting my account cus of my mom and all but thank to oldschoolhipster I have a brilliant idea that just might work.LIGHTBULB!!!!!!!!!!!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
ok, so the whole reason why I want to delete my account is cus my mom's concerned that im depressed and my art causes her to freak then she ambushes me with all these stupid conversations about trust and feelings and crap like that. ugh. ..its all just really annoying. Even though I really feel just fine. Shes going on about how she loves me and wants to protect me and blah blah blah. But i've gotton soooo many comments and notes about not quitting and my talent and stuff, so I want you guys to help my mom see that. If you have any time, please leave a comment on this journal explaining why making art (even depressing art) is good for me.

a new meme of sortsSo I've had this idea for awhile now for a meme. What it is,is you draw your character as a bender of sorts from avatar, and no not the avatar its self. I my self will be drawing ivan and color as benders; ivan- fire and color- water. I thought this would be pretty fun to do being with korra just ending and all.a new meme of sorts3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The two rules of it is you have to make your character in there human formNOT there AU school form, and as stated it can't be the avatar just one element per person.
Or if you want:
I hope people do this and if you do link me the pictures id love to see them .
so i've seen some people dont watch the show but want to do this so i thought id put some guide lines i guess? Ok so here we go:

Emulation and CreationI write this because I see a lot of this on Deviantart, and a few other places, and have been guilty of it myself way back when, so thought it might be good advice. I use Games Workshop as an example because thats what I have experience in, but it's equally applicable to super-heroes, manga, anime, all the popular genres.Emulation and Creation1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I loved drawing since when I was small, so when I came across Games Workshop, obviously I finally found a thing to draw that suited me and what I liked. There was no internet back when I was a kid, at least not freely available internet, so all my influences came from the codex's GW used to bring out. So I basically began to copy John Blanche, Adrian Smith, Mark Gibbons, all those fantasy artists. Harmless enough, it was essential drawing practice at the very least, and schools were never really supportive of that kind of art anyway, it was always paper-mache masks.
I wanted to be an artist for Games Workshop, because thats what I liked. I used to draw that stuf

Interesting Comic Convention fact #3Artist Alley booths can be grouped into General Categories. I have been collecting data for years, and here for the first time, I present my findings:Interesting Comic Convention fact #32 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Seasoned Anime Artist Booth: these artists almost always have 11ft diplsays, usually constructed from collapsible shelves or plastic piping. The artist themselves can sometimes be glimpsed through a tiny gap in their wall of artwork, usually drawing away, only emerging to conclude a transaction, and then quickly receding back to the safety of the artsy fortification.
The Shy Kickstarter Booth
These are the Artists trying to push their very first comic series, book etc. These artists are new, frightened of loud noises, and unsure of their surroundings. They can mostly be seen at sparsely filled tables. hiding in a sketchbook, awaiting to be discovered.
(they get much better by show 2)

Where does one start with getting into your world? illustration? Animation? General fine art? I’m 28 and looking at rebooting my life by advancing my favourite lifelong hobby into (hopefully) a better job, but to risk 3 years of my life and upwards of £30k, I don’t want to go in the wrong direction right at the start.
