I just realized.If time travel were ever possible, wouldn't we be seeing people in time machines coming from the future? o_OI just realized.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
or would they be so secretive about being here nobody really knows about it?
or does the government know about it already, yet they're refusing to say anything to the public in order to pacify us?
THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW.
Project Sketch 'Em All UPDATEProject Sketch 'Em All3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok we're back, sorta. School is a terrible environment for art. And I have a lot of people who can vouch for that XD Anyway, the point is, I won't be working on it at 10 a day. Not for now, anyway. What is going to happen instead, is, I'll be drawing the remaining Pokemon first, then :IconAldenlite: will vector them. After that I'll color them all at one go, and you guys will see the complete collection. About time, I know. It's coming to the end of a school term, after which I have a week to rush up my homework, and of course, the project. Hopefully I can get it up by then.
Anyway due to the new sequence of actions, we'll actually need 3 progress bars to handle this.
Sketched: 644/725 (Reuniclus)
Vectored: 600/725 (Seismitoad)
[Star!][No Star] - 83%
Colored (And Complete): 560/725 (Serperior)
[Star!][Star!][Star!][Half Star][No Star] - 77%

Never laugh at beginnersA clear explanation of why you can not laugh at the kids and beginners.Never laugh at beginners2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some users (not just spectators, but also good artists) young authors criticize, laugh at "curves" works. This is silly, especially when the authors do not ask for criticism.
Criticism does not work, it just hurts. Assist cautious practical advice and training. The importance of studying anatomy, drawing and theory to understand himself. It is impossible to impose.
The only important thing: the love of his work, love for the intermediate result and a great desire to paint / sculpt. It is better if the young author will draw hundreds of pictures a month of unsuccessful than successful one once a year.
At the same time, it is important to invest ourselves into work, rather than mechanically drawing the line. But investing is not possible if you do not love yourself and your creativity.
I started sculpting in 2006. If I were recaptured desire, if not there were people who liked even the first of ... I'd never sculpted

Hey! Just letting you all know that every-now-and-xen made a tutorial for using this Calculator! So if you're having troubles with my wording for it, please check out her tutorial at this [link]! In addition, she also provided a site and a how to for finding the actual color at the end, so please do have a good look there too!
OKAY GUYS, HERE'S THE DEAL WITH CONTACTING ME ON TUMBLR, don't send me an ask there about this calculator unless you honestly can't figure something out. Also, if you have a question, check the second link below (which has answers to questions) to see if someone else asked something similar to what you want to ask.
On that note, please realize that I made this OVER A YEAR AGO (back in early 2011) and that NEW INFORMATION has come out since then in the comic and that Hussie has also released information

(My friend told me this theroy and I believe none of it!)
Yeah, I really have to get this off my chest. There is apparently a new planet discovered called Nibiru. And on the 21st December 2012, 'the day of all our death' or in more logical terms, the day the Mayan Calender ends, it'll crash into Earth. YET, killing no one and just bounce us out of the Milky Way. 21st to 24th, there will be a 3 day of total darkness and then we wake up and continue life.
WTH?! Was my first reaction when I heard this. So I thought of a few questions
1. How we going to just be bashed to the side without death?
2. Wouldn't we just die without any sunlight or warmth?
3. Wouldn't we just bash into things if we were knocked out of the way?
4. We simply cannot just leave our galaxy
I did some reseach that completely confirms that nothing will happen --> http://www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/features/2012.html#nibiru
Well, what do you think?

So many artists underpricing...It makes me really sad.So many artists underpricing...4 months ago in Personal More Like This
When an artist you want to commission finally open their commissions back and all of their slots are taken in less than a minute.
And I'm sure all the slots would still be taken if the price was increased of x2-x10.
So many artists are still underpricing themselves. People make it a standard for art to sell for so cheap and whenever someone charge more than this standard, which is probably still underpriced, people complain.
By underpricing yourself, you are also contributing to keep the price standard of art low on this site. Charging low can be insulting to other artists, but also to yourself.
Please, don't ever feel like you need to underprice yourself, because of the fear of what other might think or say. You art is worth more than that. There will always be someone complaining, you cannot please everyone. Your time, the efforts, the skills you gained over years of hard work, is worth far way more than a few cents/points.
If you ever open your commissions an

Soooo much thanks to the creator of the video for turning my comic into something so cool!

It will return; hopefully very soon. So just sit tight and INK will be back! Until then, watch that awesome video!
Being humanI like being a human. I think I would remain a Homo sapiens even if I could choose any animal to be... but there are a couple things I don't like about it.Being human9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I think what I hate most about our modern human life is the concept of time being chopped into blocks, like hours, days, weeks etc. Days do not really have names. It gives me claustrophobia to have that calender grid laid out, covering my past AND already covering my future! It is my own, pristine untrammeled future! Keep that stupid concept of time off of it!
No way to escape it.
AND my ticking clock is sitting here, chomping up time in little bites like- like PAC MAN ... argh!
That, and I wish we had tails.
What do you NOT like about living life as a human?
Yes, of course , there's the problem that humans seem to be genetically wired to hate and massacre each other for no good reason, but I'm talking about more mundane things about physically or mentally living your life

You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time.
A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up. She's screaming your name. Your brother, so confused, runs to go tell Dad that "Mommy is crying and sissy won't wake up."
Your dad runs to your room. He looks at yo

Art StylesThis is not some journal about personal woes. I just want to talk briefly about some attitudes towards realistic (and other) art styles that I've come across that... It just kinda seriously bothers me that people think that way about me and other people and themselves.Art Styles5 months ago in Personal More Like This
So here it is; Drawing realism does not equal elitism.
I don't draw realistically because I think it makes me better than other people and I don't know anyone else who does either. I draw realistically because I like drawing that way. Because I'm very particular about details and drawing little tiny details makes me ridiculously happy. It's just how I like to draw.
It doesn't make me better than you or anyone else.
I don't think any of you are below me because you draw anime/manga or cartoon styles. More power to you because I tend to struggle with it, honestly.
And if we all drew the exact same way, all our art would be the same and it would be boring as hell.
