Wheatley Puppet FAQWow! So it's been over a year since I started my puppet project and I'm still getting messages and questions about Wheatley every week. You guys are nuts! In the best way. <3 I can't thank you enough for all the interest and kind words. It's been a great year taking Wheaters to conventions and getting to know fellow Portal fans. :3Wheatley Puppet FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you've sent me a message on devart, my blog or youtube there's a good chance you've learned that I'm really really horrible about answering messages. You guys have been so patient with me and I've been meaning to sit down and write a better faq for a while now. I've got my coffee so let's do this thing!

Q: Can I make my own Wheatley puppet based on yours?
A: Sure! I've seen a few folks take a stab at their own Wheatley puppets since mine went up. It's really flattering that people like my weird ideas enough to give them a try.
Q: Can I buy a puppet from you?
A: I'm afraid I still don't have any plans to sta
Rooke's Character Building ExerciseThis was something I came up with when I was bored yesterday, and it turned out pretty fun. So you're welcome to try it.Rooke's Character Building Exercise2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Something very important to storytelling is creating unique, realistic characters who have thoughts, dreams, goals, and impressions all their own. Sometimes creating characters can be difficult if you don't know where to start, or if you can't seem to break out of certain stereotypes with your characters. So I made this little exercise in character building, just as a jump start to creating some random, interesting characters.
First, we have our two columns - TRAITS, and ROLES. A trait is an adjective. A role is a job or a "purpose" a character has. Most good characters have complex purposes and roles that they fill, far more than a single all encompassing word. But you can use these as starting points to creating characters.
What I did was make a list of 32 "traits" and "roles", whatever I could think of off the top of my head, that could be applied to stories of

How to get the most out of your keywordsThe keywords of your prints play an important role in how your artwork is discovered using our Print Shop's search feature. This will enable you to search through the prints available on deviantART using their keywords. Here are some tips for using keywords that will help people find your work:How to get the most out of your keywords9 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Use as many words as you can
The more words you use, the more times your print will be viewed. Let's say, for instance, you are posting an image of some lovely roses. Some keywords you may use are "roses, flowers, plants, nature, Valentine's Day, romance, love, gift, bouquet, red, bloom, blossoms..." and anything else you can think of (while keeping it relevant, of course).
Keep them on topic
Sure, putting in "Harry Potter" and "hot girls" will get you more hits; however, there is a very slim chance the people searching for those words are going to buy your print if it doesn't have to do with the subject they've searched for. Try to keep your keywords rel
Overcoming Creative BlockI think every artist has creative block from time to time. A friend of mine did recently, so I typed up my own remedy for it. And I liked how it turned out, so I think I'll post it here too. This is my advice on how to get past creative block - whether it's art block, writer's block, etc.Overcoming Creative Block2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's what you do -
Go find a book or comic book you haven't read. Read it. If you haven't read the Bone series by Jeff Smith, or the Bakuman series (it's a manga), then go find those, and read them. Read the Inkheart trilogy. Read Elantris by Brandon Sanderson. Read Endymion Spring. Find a story and lose yourself in it.
Watch animated videos and movies you haven't seen. Here's a playlist of animated videos I liked. Pick a few and watch them, and really think about the artwork being created there. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?listLkDDYT9uliZfNKCIelqyVcQO_p_e0O7Jn&feature=mh_lolz

My Mission papers are in! I wonder where I'll go..Hey, guys! Big announcement!My Mission papers are in! I wonder where I'll go..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, those of you who come to my livestreams are well aware of this fact, as it comes up often. But for those of you who don't know, for the past year or so I've been trying to go on a mission for my church. Mission as in "missionary". I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, nicknamed Mormons, and I've always wanted to serve a mission, ever since I was a little kid.
The way it works, is that I had to complete my paperwork, which included medical forms and dental and all sorts of stuff. It took a long time, because I had to complete the medical requirement, which had a weight limit for health reasons. It took me a while to lose the weight, but I did! And I finished all my paperwork, and I got it submitted!
In around two weeks, I'll be getting my call in the mail. It'll tell me where I'm going on my mission, and when I'm leaving (could be anywhere from a month from then, to half a year from then.) I could go anywhere, and I'll be sp

Part 1: Submitting with POWER
I know there are a million "how to be popular" guides on DA and a million more parody versions of them. This article isn't about becoming popular, or starting drama or racking up pageviews as fast as possible for the sake of seeing a larger number.
This article won't make your art better, or make you more a more popular personality. However, what I've noticed is that many artists are missing out on feedback and exposure that they should be getting if not for a few common mistakes. Time after time, I've read on Artist's Confessions, or just browsing through members' personal journals that their gallery doesn't recieve any traffic and they can't improve because they're not getting any feedback. They feel like their lack of popularity is a personal statement. That their art isn't worth looking at. This is entirely untrue.
Hopefully this will help you, the underexposed artist, to b

I've seen comic how-to-get-started guides before, and they're all so ninny-nippled they word it like anyone can make a comic, wow, so magical and fun!
Wrong. Everyone and their pet dog has a "story" they want to "write" or "make a comic of." Face it, it ain't gonna happen for 99% of us. You gotta have self-discipline and stubbornness to get anything done. And you can't just avoid the stuff that sounds too hard. It's a package deal.
1. Having a character doesn't mean you've done anything. Maybe you've spent a year deciding on the perfect hairstyle and three years before that developing his complex personality, and technically, you spent the entirety of your high school career on him too, since he's a "redesign" of an old fancharacter--who cares! Making characters doesn't take years. In fact, you're hurting your story by keeping characters around for that lon

It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

Assasins creed lll had the slowest start ever, but it got better and better and then all of a sudden your this kid who runs around playing which turns into the most dull character ever. ANYWAY Lots of intresting things were going on in the modern part of the world, and we were super exited to see what happenend. We end up killing the best character in the game (Haythem, which is connors father, and a character you got to be earlier in the game)
AFTER that, the game just went down in exitement and the horrible ending, it has to be worse than watching the movie room.
TIME PASS, and the new game comes out BLACK FLAG, and its about priates. The trailer looks super promising! It looks epic, so we buy it to play it.
Its nothing like the trailer. The sailing is worse in this game than the previous, THERE WERE A BUG fromt he beginning til almost
