How To Photograph Your Paintings
In this article I want to discuss a common problem that some traditional artists have. That's photographing your paintings. Whether it be for selling prints or just getting your art noticed online the importance of having paintings look great is key. If your fortunate enough to have a scanner for smaller pieces then that's great! But if your working on large canvases or paper then you can run into issues. The most common problem artists have are Glare, Blur and Color. All of which will be discussed in this article.
Anyone who has worked with acrylics and oils knows what a problem this can be when your trying to take a picture of a painting. This is not as much a issues for a artist working with watercolors

what dA has taught me about characterizationIt's a rant. You've been warnedwhat dA has taught me about characterization2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Recently, I purchased and read the novel "Divergent" pressured by the same friends who encouraged me to read "Twilight". Granted these novels aren't the same (and, honestly, I had an easier time swallowing Divergent)....but...I have to say this. I physically cringed within seconds of starting the book because the author broke almost word-for-word the most basic rule on characterization I learned from Orson Scott Card.
He says and I quote: "If they have a woman stand in front of a mirror and comb her long brown hair with the comb delicately balanced in her slender fingers as she looks into her own flashing eyes, such writers think they've done their job." They haven't. (btw, he said that in 1988 I believe...LONG before Divergent).
And before you go all dauntless on me, I get why that scene is supposedly significant, but I still had to stop for a minute and laugh at it because when I read that scene I immediately cross-referenced it to Mr. Card
Fifty Shades + Cinderella Fifty Shades of GrayFifty Shades + Cinderella7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Rotten Tomatoes: 25%
When a notorious movie comes out you know I'm going to have to watch it. That being said, I want you all to know that I didn't have to pay to see it (you can take that how you will). I ain't giving money to these a-holes.
This movie... yeah, it's a great promoter of romanticized abuse. When Christian Gray (LOL, fake name) comes up with his little sex contract he even has it so that he gets to pick her birth control and which doctor Anastasia Steele (LOL, fake name) goes to. Pretty sick, dude. He also says stupid crap like she has to take care of her body and only buy food he approves of - meaning basically that she can't get fat/unattractive.
The one saving grace of the movie would be that in the end Anastasia doesn't actually sign the contract and leaves the prick at the end of the film.

@ Rich Moore On Deleted Scenes and Sequel... ENGLISH…@ Rich Moore On Deleted Scenes and Sequel...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
IGN recently caught up with Wreck-It Ralph director Rich Moore to talk about the film's upcoming Blu-ray release, which features a never before seen animatic depicting one of the story's dropped video game worlds, Extreme EZ Livin' 2. The filmmaker also gave us an update on the sequel and his thoughts on what he'd like to see in a potential followup.
IGN Movies: So I first want to discuss this deleted scene and Extreme EZ Livin' 2. Can you talk a bit about the context of this clip, the Bobby Dunderson character, and how it originally fit into the story?
Rich Moore: Well, Extreme EZ Livin' was this idea that was floated out to Ralph by Bobby Dunderson, who was this kind of ne'er-do-well Hero's Duty character. He told Ralph about this other game that sounded like paradise. It was a place where there were no good guys, no bad guys, just guys -- and girls and sun and surf. It was kind of this Shangri-La where Ralph could forget his troubl

Moore, who directed Disney's highly successful animated film Wreck-It Ralph, previously stated that he would love to include Mario in an inevitable sequel, and now he says that he hopes to feature Tron.
(...) Wreck-It Ralph director Rich Moore talks a little more about a possible sequel. Considering that Disney's animated video game film earned rave reviews, grossed nearly $380M worldwide, and is up for Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards, a follow-up is rather inevitable. Moore previously expressed his interest in including Nintendo's Mario in the next film, and now, he reveals another character that he'd like to showcase: Tron, who was actually planned to have a cameo in the first movie. "I can't specifically remember why that didn't happen," says Moore. "...Of course, with a sequel, I'm hoping that we can find a way to see Tron himself in that movie." Played by Bruce Boxleitner in 1982's TRON and 2010's TRON: Legacy, the character

Been away for quite some time! I'm thinking about transitioning slowly back in though; I posted something the other day and kinda forgot how nice it is to be able to read and respond to comments directly.
What have I been up to? Mostly making games (both facebook and mobile), but I recently transitioned back to freelance to finish an interesting business-oriented book that I am finding pretty fulfilling. And some illustration work, and some other comics... Also working on my own stuff but of course freelance and commissions are a priority
I think I'm happier now than I've been in a while: I live in a pretty cool area, have cool friends who do lots of different and interesting things, and for the first time in a while, free time with which to do my personal stuff. Big change from my usual working-my-ass-off-and-barely-having-time-to-breathe schedule. Also freelancing lets me choose the kind of thing I want to work on, which is a nice change from games (for now). I really can't

Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”
– Guy Fawkes

From what I have read, someone hacks people's accounts and then it causes all sorts of problems that eventually lead to losing your account by either getting it banned or whatnot!
PLEASE READ, THIS IS IMPORTANT!
Rumor has it there's a hacker on dA, hacking people and blocking our friends to make them block us! You'll then be banned from dA.
Write the same warning in your journal to protect not only yourself but everyone! Here's another warning: If I'm being a jerk, saying stuff like "Shut up," "Get lost", or "I don't want to see you on my page anymore", that's not really me. That's the hacker.
Write all of this down in your journal too!
