Since a young age, I have always been fascinated with flight. Growing up, my parents were good friends with a group of pilots. They specialized in cinema stunt work for movies. Every time I had the opportunity to go up in an airplane or helicopter, I took it. In the photo below, I'm in the center seat of a friend's helicopter. It was so fun!
As a youth, I would draw all types of planes -- jet fighters being the most exciting. Growing up on a healthy dose of Star Wars and G. I. Joe also fueled my love for flight. Other kids were infatuated with jets, too, and could rattle off all sorts of information about their technical aspects. I constantly checked out huge reference books from the local library because I was always more interested in drawing them than studying how fast they could fly or how much thei

SO, it goes like this; anyone is free to post their character reference here, and I will randomly choose some characters I'll draw. The pictures will be flat-coloured/coloured clean scetches, and I'll post them in patches once atleast 3 of them is ready.
Please don't get disappointed if you don't see your character immediately - I'm planning to do these randomly from time to time, so who knows if I'll choose your character later!

Seriously, what do you think you achieve with a comment like that? Is the artist supposed to feel better that his/her oc looks like the fandom you're at the moment fapping to? Most of the artists I know want to be recognized for their own characters and ideas, and most of the time they haven't even thought - or better yet, heard - at all of that thing when the picture was created.
"This reminds me of--" is not a compliment. It's not a critique. It gives nothing new, but it makes you look like a snob who can't accept that when there is billions and trillions of people maybe might think of same kind of idea what someone else thought. If, as a comment, it's something, it's actually an insult of someone's imagination. Or, maybe, the person was actually inspirated about something. Let's say, he was inspirated by some pokemon. He liked the design and wanted

the thing about public domain is...Just because art is in the public domain does not mean the artist loses their rights over it.the thing about public domain is...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
just a friendly reminder that just because art is in the public domain does not mean it loses copyright value
and no artists you do not need to pay to copyright your work it is an automatic thing.
you only relinquish copyright if you state so yourself that people can use your work without permission
so unless you do that
they are stealing.

Poem - Impressive WorldThere once was a game called Impressive TitlePoem - Impressive World2 years ago in Personal More Like This
IT stayed online for quite a long while
But the fun times had to end
as the hackers came in
and FeralHeart made IT go out of style.
There now was a member; Big Ban
Who thought up a very good plan
with his coding skills at the best
he decided to hack -- err I mean test
the files of IT while he can.
.. as for IT shutting down, understand?
A year or two have gone and past
Flametail wanting his IT dreams to last
But the people he hired
had surely backfired
and due to this, ITr had died really fast.
Bigban had his own IT dreams too
and being hired for ITr, guess what he'd do?
Since Flametail was so easy to trick
BigBan stole the source code very quick
And it was enough to make Ritza's nuts blue.
After a few months of lying low
BigBan decided " ITr had to go.."
So he worked day and night
making sure his server was right
and released I.W. so everyone can know.
ITR did not last very long
but BB was still in the wrong
The "hack" attacks from ITr was

Ok so I have been getting a lot of messages recently from people saying they have the same problem with paint tool SAI so I decided to update this journal so everyone can go on working and saving files in SAI.
I don't know if there is a way to completly fix this bug but there definately is a way to avoid it!
I would like to thank FlumpyDuck for her very helpfull response:
"If you open a PSD in SAI for some reason it has a meltdown and won't save anything as .sai, so if - like I had - you've just done a couple hours' work and you don't want to lose everything, you /can/ save it as a .psd file and keep editing it from there. If you absolutely need it to be a .s
American Internet Censorship Bill Part 2Yesterday I posted a journal about my thoughts on the American Internet Censorship Bill that was being voted on by the House of Representatives. Within minutes of me posting I found out that the bill was defeated by a majority vote (though a very close one). So for now our precious internet is free once again, but it also raises an entirely different discussion...American Internet Censorship Bill Part 23 years ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of the comments I saw on the various websites I went to dealt with upholding the true definition of "freedom" on the internet. It was quite apparent that a lot of people who were upset at the idea of internet censorship were more or less concerned that they might have to be held responsible for their bad behavior online.
See, we all participate in illegal activity online. If you've ever downloaded a movie, or used a torrent, or uploaded images that weren't your own, or played an emulated NES game, or even uploaded video clips from a TV show to YouTube... you're technically participating in illegal activity.
About PricingAlright, I know this is a huge thing in the adoptable community (or, well, the art community in general). I just want to say that, while I know for some my prices may be seen as overpriced, in most cases they are auction adoptables and thus people only pay what they're comfortable with (and whether that be $10 or $100+, please be respectful to the people who do choose to spend their money as they like).About Pricing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I personally feel the art community is urged to underprice themselves. You don't have to agree with me, but that's what I've gathered from seeing artists over the years. But I'm going to talk about my art for this, specifically adoptables, so here's my breakdown: people are purchasing, not only character art, but the time it took to make as well as a character design. What that may be worth to one person may be worth something completely different to another, so I ask that you please respect that.
For auction prices going too high--I can't agree that there should be a point where

Panthera by $chix0r
When we launched the One Cat, One Fruit, One Clock Contest, we asked you to create artwork using three seemingly random things; a cat, a fruit, and a clock. We're excited that so many artists participated and we were really impressed by the creative ideas that were submitted.
The judges narrowed down those entries to 25 semi-finalists, and now the world-wide Chairman of Fotolia Inc., Oleg Tscheltzoff, has selected the final three winners.
Congratulations to the winners and thank you all for participating! And don't forget to watch #StockProject —there might be a new contest someday just saying.
NaNoEmoNagging NowIGottaReallyMakeThem EmotesNaNoEmo3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As many of you know, November 1st was the start of NaNoWriMo. It's an event that challenges authors to write 50,000 words on a novel in the month of November. I have seen other, similar events for different art-forms, such as NaNoMango. That gave me an idea. There has been a lull in creativity in the emote community. So, why not do NaNoEmo?! Basically, make an emote a day through November. Now, it doesn't have to be fancy. Even a simple static chat-friendly or legend revamp. The idea is to push yourself to create.
Now, the goal IS to create 1-a-day, but if something happens and you can't, don't sweat, just keep going. Let's see how close to the mark we can get.
If you are participating in NaNoEmo, please comment below and I'll add you to the list. It would be best i

Now, a lot of you guys out there are probably saying,
"Ugh what's she trying to say her dogs are just fat with swirl tailz!11"
Well, that may be, but if they were really as plain as a fat, swirly tailed anthro, they probably wouldn't sell as well nor be renowned for the traits that set them apart from the rest, which I'll delve into later.
So, here are some tips to creating something fun, successful (if you put in the work), and original!
For starters, pick an animal or creature to base your species off of.
Pick an animal you don't see used too often, OR pick something you KNOW you can give original traits.
What I mean by the above statement, is that if you pick a common animal, like a dog or cat, and basing them off of drinks or biomes (desert, forest, beaches), ec

PE: How to Scan and Adjust ImagesTutorial Time: How to scan and adjust images on Photoshop!PE: How to Scan and Adjust Images7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Hello everyone, welcome to this tutorial article of PE week!
well, you know, there is this youtube channel where there's lots of videos regaring tips, tricks and general advice for artists, and it is the best I've seen of the kind. But sadly, it is only in portuguese - hence why cinyu came up with the great idea of getting me to translate one of their videos!
I decided to pick up this one regarding scanning and adjusting images on photoshop, because that is one of the most basic, yet worst parts for many traditional artists. This tutorial is mostly for scanning black and white works, so it'll be more useful if you're working on manga/comic pages or inked art, but I hope it'll give you some ideas and help out in general on how scanning works.
I'll be translating the most important parts of the video, along with screenshots. Let's get started!
