how does your music taste influence your art?Slow day today, so let's throw up another discussion topic:how does your music taste influence your art?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Everyone has tastes in music (I hope) and it impacts us on a very personal level. It changes how we do certain things in our lives and odds are, its the reason we do certain things artistically, either by listening to it while creating art or actually going into the work we make (aka, me shoving excess amounts of AU5 music into my animations).
How does music affect your art? What do you listen to? Does the mood of the music impact the themes of your art?
In my case:
Being an ex-music producer, my character Syron has roots and even fundamental attributes that deal with music, more specifically, Dubstep, and drum and bass. (which explains the wubwub jokes people throw at me alot *stares at Toughset *cough*)My animations use music. Let's face it, not everyone uses music, let alone teh wub wubs in animations, but I feel that in an animation, sound plays a HUGE role in immersion and environment

what happened to zuko's mother?Dark Horse continued to up the "Avatar" ante with its graphic novel series "The Promise," which helps fill in the gap between the end of "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and "Legend of Korra." Written by "American Born Chinese" creator Gene Luen Yang with art by Gurihiru Studios, the three-part graphic novel series wraps in September -- but that doesn't mean it's the end of Avatar Aang's adventures.what happened to zuko's mother?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This weekend at the American Library Association, Dark Horse announced Yang and Gurihiru will return for a second "Avatar: The Last Airbender" graphic novel series called "The Search," which explores the biggest unsolved mystery in "Avatar" lore: what happened to Prince Zuko's mother?
CBR News spoke with Yang, a longtime "Avatar: The Last Airbender" fan, about his work on "The Search," wrapping up "The Promise, his feelings about "Legend of Korra," the challenge of linking the two shows and their characters together and the return of Princess Azula. No release date at this time. Go look at this

You guys sent in some great ideas! It took us hours to decide which ones to choose. But in the end, we went with the most creative, abstract, and conceptual themes. Simpler themes would have lead to a hundred of the same drawing, but the words you all sent in are GIANT umbrellas to much smaller prompts.
For instance, many of you sent in ideas like nostalgia, time, memory, future, generations, etc. and momentous can cover all of that. Everyone wins with this theme.
Then we have Seasons, which was chosen based on popular demand.
Just for clarification,

Last week at E3, the excitement, creativity and future of our industry was on display for a global audience.
For us, the future comes in the form of Xbox One, a system designed to be the best place to play games this year and for many years to come. As is our heritage with Xbox, we designed a system that could take full advantage of advances in technology in order to deliver a breakthrough in game play and entertainment. We imagined a new set of benefits such as easier roaming, family sharing, and new ways to try and buy games. We believe in the benefits of a connected, digital future.

Thank you for the postive vibes.
The results of the latest Poll are highly amusing. There's like a hair's breadth distance between the two options asking for the reveal of Jareth and Sarah's respective [assumed Dirty] Secrets. And the sexy vote beats the fluffy. Ahahaha.
And predictably enough with S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson showing up, the requests for a cameo by fangirl-favourite Loki are snowballing. (Aha. Snowballing. It's funny cos he's an Ice Giant. And adopted.)
Loki. God of Mischief. Multiverse-level troll.

Stolen ArtworkGood morning all my fabulous ghouls!Stolen Artwork3 years ago in Personal More Like This
China Glaze has formally apologized, and have personally apologized to me - for which I am extremely grateful. They're now going after the so called "artist" who ripped me off, and have offered me compensation, and a job! So rock on China Glaze! And thanks to all of you guys for your support, and the flaming messages sent to the company. I really think that all of the outrage opened their eyes as to what happened, and that caused them to reach out to me. Way to go creeps! I <3 you!
Here is the earlier post:
I have some unfortunate news this morning - I was alerted that the beauty supply company China Glaze has mutilated a few pieces of mine - and some from other artists as well - to advertise their Halloween nail polish collection "Wicked."
This is upsetting, not just because it's a horrendously bad Photoshop job, but because they didn't ask for my permission, or offer any compensation at all. It's disgusting, and I'm pretty hot a

Go ahead and make it brown if you want, but other colours will set your designs apart from the rest.
A good deal of you have heard of Nikita the Malamute, Dimitri's first "serious" girlfriend/lover. If you know about her, you also know she backstabbed him (literally) and left him for his brother.
I thought it'd be interesting to hold a contest where people draw what they think she looks like.
She must be a Malamute, preferably black and white and with icey blue eyes.
She must be Russian or Ukrainian, and the daughter of a Mob/Mafia boss.
She can't be over 24 - 27
She has to have selfish, sly and seductive traits included.
Feel free to do whatever you like with the design, personality, and even backstory, but you HAVE to include the traits/design must-haves and story sections that I've inc

If with the rest I feel compelled
to try and write a villanelle,
spill my ink and break my pen
and do not let me try again.
And if like Keats I crave an ode
on Grecian urns or autumn roads,
break my fingers, steal my pen
and never let me write again.
With meter and with rhyming verse
I try to dress my humble words,
arranging them into sestinas,
change epigrams to terza-rimas.
And if I think I have the skill
to pen another kyrielle
come and smash this laptop screen
and never let my words be seen.

Don't deny that you traced and say that you "referenced" it instead.
Don't advocate the above actions by making a tutorial out of it.

Oh good! I caught you! I need to make sure you guys see this!
Well! I've decided that I'm going to do another contest! My second one. I had so much fun with my previous contest that I've been thinking so much about it to see what I can do! And I think I've finally decided on something.
This is going to be a contest with a very large time limit, but with nice prizes! There are two contests that you can participate in, with two separate prompts.
PROMPT ONE: THE PROTECTOR
There’s nothing more comforting knowing that there is someone that would lay down their lives to protect you, your rights, emotions, and feelings. A mother will protect her child, a soldier would protect his country, and a political hero would lay down their life to ensure citizens are guaranteed their human rights. Protectors are not necessarily literal, physical beings, but in times are often spiritual, religious, and
