Once in a while people will ask me what kind of brush that I used in photoshop. I kept meaning to make this kind of post so I could explain it better. So if you guys have anymore question about photoshop I will be glad to answer it and make another Q&A post.
1. WHAT TYPE OF BRUSH DO YOU USE, IS IT BASIC BRUSH OR A CHALK TYPE BRUSH?

Make sure under the Window> Brushes> Shape Dynamics> Size Jitter's Control is under Pen Pressure. This brush is useful for inking and blocking basic colors.

Quickie update-- thanks and apologiesHey all---- I thought I'd come up for air for a few seconds to give a quick update.Quickie update-- thanks and apologies3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been seeing lots of comments asking about why I don't answer messages or post more art. I want to offer my apologies. I just get so, so many notes, and my work is especially demanding these days. To top it all off, the last 6 months have been kind of rough for me personally and the combination of all these elements just means I don't have the time to answer.
Still, I want to thank every one for the constant supply of kind words, inspiring stories and compliments. I do get to read most of your notes (I think--- I hope!!) and the vast majority are so thoughtful. And with the kind of year I've had, it really lifts my spirits.
I'm hoping that by the end of the year, maybe during Thanksgiving or Christmas break, I'll be able to put together an FAQ. Lots of people ask for advice on how to get into animation, and I plan on answering that on

The ongoing disaster of the PS Vita.This list is for the North American release only. Some details are different in other regions.The ongoing disaster of the PS Vita.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You cannot transfer your collection of UMD based PSP games to the Vita.
If you want to play the games you already bought for the PSP you must rebuy them.
You have to buy an expensive proprietary memory card if you want to save anything.
Without an expensive proprietary memory card, many Vita games can't be played at all.
The battery life for the Vita is worse than the 3DS's.
Downloaded games are only about 10% cheaper than the same retail version.
AT&T is the service carrier for the Vita.
The cheapest phone plan only nets you 250mb a month.
The device has already been hacked.
The cheapest you can get a Vita (while getting the smallest memory card and cheapest monthly data plan) is roughly $295. If you actually want to get an enjoyable experience out of the device the most expensive that you'd have to pay (including the most expensive memory card and data plans) is $480. Neither of those price
Missing the PointI've been noticing a trend lately where people seem to deliberately be missing the point behind stuff in order to complain. I used to think it was just me, as I watched people write up lengthy articles nitpicking and "debunking" a comic I made because they simply missed the point, but I've started seeing it happening to other people too.Missing the Point3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently over on The Oatmeal, artist Matthew Inman made a joke about guy gamers vs girl gamers. The joke was pretty simple: A guy gamer makes a mistake and gets bitched out by his fellow teammates online. Contrast to that, a girl gamer makes a mistake and her fellow teammates try to comfort her, tell her she's doing great, and make suggestive comments about hooking up. To me the joke was clear, guys treat girls differently online. However, that's not how the rest of the internet saw it...
From what I've read of the whole Oatmeal flare up, the reasons for the hate seem grounded in the fact he depicted the girl as blond and bubbly (ie: stupid) and not as

Song from the other wallSo I've been living in my single room dorm for 2 years straight for college. There's a song coming the wall from the left side of my room from time to time, only in the bathroom actually.Song from the other wall3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's very well sang, like that of a professional singer, and it's a very old era song, like something from an opera.
I've always thought it is a very nice song, and didn't think too much of it.
But actually, no modern college student would sing a song like that, and it definitely doesn't sound like from a record machine.
I didn't give much thought about it since I'm surrounded by other college students.
But then, only now it came to me that the left side of my room is a locked room and noone lives in it.
I could hear the song so clearly it could only be coming from the left side of the wall.
Asked my neighbors around and noone even sings, not to mention the tenants change frequently in my dorm and I'm the only one who actually stay for 2 years in the same room.
I've been pretty blunt about this althou

EBF4 on Steam?!So, I was playing The Binding of Isaac, and thought;EBF4 on Steam?!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Hmm, people talk about this as if it were a real game, even though it's just a Flash game!
I want my games to be real games too..."
And then I realized, neither Steam nor Kongregate require exclusivity for their games.
I could release EBF4 the traditional way, for free on websites, but with microtransactions for bonus content, and also on Steam for a price, but with all content included.
Plus, there's quite a few advantages to having EBF4 on Steam:
The game won't need to have any advertisements or branding in it, so interfaces will be a bit less cluttered in general.Since file size won't be a huge issue, I won't have to compress any music or bitmaps.You'll have the option to play full-screen, which you don't have in a browser.
It would also be a convenient chance to sell the soundtrack, and I see a lot of games are doing quite well with that.
Overall, it would be a better experience for the player, but it would clearly b

here it is:
Just 90 Pounds?
I stood up off the toilet and buttoned my jeans. I had to pull them tight, the 42" waist now a good 4" too small. My belly bulged. It didn't help that I'd just had 2 big mac meals, a milkshake and coke. My stomach ached a little, I'd been pigging out all day and was probably full before I'd even entered the mcdonalds.
I'd really let myself go since moving out to live with my girlfriend. I'd been 140 pounds just 6 months ago, I was now around 230lbs, although I hadn't weighed myself in months. It was depressing to see the numbers going up and up and just made me want to eat more. The most noticable part of this 90 pound gain was my belly, it was so round that I looked pregnant. That and my double chin had attracted the concern of my friends and family
Lighten up or burn out.Well first off, somehow I accidentally deleted over 3000 comment notifications. Do not ask me how it happened. I was about to start working on catching up on comments and went to organize the list and somehow POOF deleted them. The comments are all still there, I just have to go through each deviation individually and look through the comments...which takes way more time... so basically, if I haven't answered your comment I might not, because I may just miss it. So I really apologize for the screw up on my part. If you have a question you really need an answer to, or want an estimate on a future project, please send me a note. Those are much harder to lose.Lighten up or burn out.3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Tomorrow, is the first blank page.......of a 365 page book. Write a good one.Tomorrow, is the first blank page....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Every year is like a chapter of our lives.
The object of a new year is not a celebration of a new year, nor having a new number displaying in our callendar but it is where we should have a new soul.
To sit down and think over how to improve up our lives.
Also is not a day to cry out loudly how our past year was unsuccessful and impatiently wait when it will be over, start a new, but to learn who we are and how we can move forward.
I'm not here to wish a good New Year Eve since it's not the only day which will decide how our new year will be like… however what I truly wish you guys lots of joy for every day for this year, as well for next year- regardless what is the day or what's happening. Every day is a miracle and a proof of our existence.
Smile to yourself while looking at your image reflected by mirror and don't be shy to say "I love you" to yourself. And lots of love to all livings forms, animals and nature and less interest to mater
ConfessionOkay um I don't really know how to say this butConfession3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When people ask me if I'm really the one who wrote My Immortal, I answer no. But the truth is
Yes it is actually me. I didn't talk about it because I am obviously deeply ashamed of this piece of crap, and because I'm still trying to get over the crap that was going on at the time.
In 2006 I was 15 years old, and as I might have said here, or you can tell is you know my personal Tumblr, english isn't my first language. Back then I was still learning and my english was really really really bad Even in French I wrote like shit, so my english was a million times worse because I'd barely learned it in class and what I wrote was mostly learned from message boards and chat rooms. I thought that if I wrote "2" instead of "to" etc, people would think I was a native english speaker. Yes I was really stupid.
I hadn't actually read Harry Potter. I had only seen the 4th film and I tried really hard to be "goth" at the time, so witch

Anyways, yeah, that finale was a whole lot better than I was expecting. My eyes were not ready to take in that amount of awesome. I was expecting a lot of cheesy-ness but there was none. The pacing was probably the best pacing for a finale or premiere so far. And it just felt longer which was great. I wanted it to be longer. I wanted it to last forever! There's just way too much to talk about in the finale so I'll let you read other people's reviews and stuff. Mine was basically what you saw up there ^^^. What else is there for me to say? I would like to note though, that Discord giving Celestia flowers at the end had me freak

When the garden of Eden was sealed up, the guardian at its entrance was tasked not only with keeping humanity from the fruit of eternal life, but with containing the life within. Neglected and overgrown, the garden has become corrupted and teems with hungry and twisted intelligences. Legend has it that when no good remains in its walls, Judgment Day has arrived and its inhabitants will be set free upon the earth. Until then, some purity still clings to the heart of the garden… but how long will it last?
