First of all I want to thank those of you who have purchased my tutorial through legitimate means. Your support has been incredible, myself and my family can't thank you enough, the notes and letters I have received from many of you in regards to the tutorial have honestly been touching and inspirational - it's been an experience unlike anything I expected to find in this business.
It is that very experience which has prompted me to come forward and lay my cards on the table and finally expose what has been transpiring behind the facade that is being presented to you by these institutions, because you deserve to know the truth for your own financial and intellectual protection.
I've waited to come forward about it because I've wanted my mo

POKEMONSOk i started my sapphire pokemon game again and so begins the adventure of Breasts.POKEMONS1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Breasts arrived at little root town and leapt from the back of the truck his mum had shoved him in. His mum ran outside and screamed BREASTS GO SET YOUR CLOCK MAN.
After setting his clock to some vague time Breasts ran downstairs only to get grabbed by his mother and thrown at the tv. BREASTS LOOK ITS YOUR DADDY oh wait you missed it GO TALK TO THE OLD MAN NEXTDOOR.
Breasts left with a tv imprint on his face and headed off to find the old man. He found him being mauled by a savage zigzagoon. Breasts reached into the bag n threw the ball he grabbed n out popped chuck norris in treecko form.
Happily skipping around the pokemon world Breasts beat up May and a few other trainers and picked up 3 more pokemon. Wingull, Poochyena and Zigzagoon.
Now wandering around the forest of.....bugs Breasts is slowly working his way up to the elite four.
what will happen next time DUN DUN DUN

So yesterday I was sleeping over at my friend's house and we were eating dinner. Before dinner I suggested we tried to make some cutouts! I was inspired by :iconRandomPickle1: to do them! So anyways we started on our cutouts then ate steak for dinner. :icondragoneat: I saw on the TV that there was a severe thunderstorm warning for our area! :iconexcitedlaplz: So I went outside and saw the menacing, grey/black Cumulonimbus. The storm was nothing, just high winds and heavy rain coming from the north. I have to admit, that storm was fast moving! :iconlarainplz: So we finished our cutouts until the storm was gone. We looked out the window to find... A GIANT DOUBLE RAINBOW!! :iconspongebobimaginationplz: Then we went outside for a better look, and AN ICE CREAM TRUCK CAME DOWN THE STREET! I'm not kidding, all of this is true! My friend got sour lemon ice c

WALLY DIES?!?!?!!!!!!!!! OH. MY. SPEEDSTER. Okay, so first off- I'm so sad about that, and as many of you (really all of you) should know, I'm sort of a HUGE Wally West and (in general) Flash fan. I have watched Young Justice avidly for a very long time now. So just to be clear, I love the guy to pieces. Always have and I always will.
Now. I actually think that is the bestest thing ever! First off, how heroic! Every single person out there cannot deny that they want their hero to have his/ or her last stand to be for something BIG. Something major. Something IMPORTANT. And Wally gets that. Not only does he get to die doing the thing he truly loves most (well, other than his family and friends) but he gets to die alongside Flash and Bart.

First, Everyone who joins this contest MUST advertise it to other people shamelessly (Because i'm a jerk like that!) and must draw one picture.
The deadline : The second of september (My brothers birthday) but if everyone is done before then, then I will close the contest off early. but that wont happen
Maleek :iconkokoblu: is the second judge, and also, will be nagging everyone who joins in. So if you join in, every 2 weeks or shorter, he will remind you about the contest.
If you wish to add some prizes, you may~ it helps, y'know~

Concept Art or Illustration career?Concept Artists are usually used at the beginning of a project, a movie or a video game for instance.Concept Art or Illustration career?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
They are skilled at inventing characters, props, environments (exterior and interior), weapons, vehicles etc.
They are briefed first, and then (depending on the project budget) are expected to sketch/paint a number of rough idea's for the required design.
Once an idea has been chosen (by whoever is in charge of the art design) the artist will be expected to develop the idea into something less rough but with more detail.
Once the person in charge is happy, the design is then given to another artist such as a 3D modeler, a costume designer, a matte painter etc who will then 'build' the design to be used in a movie or video game.
Concept art is not important to the average consumer. Concept art is generally 'disposable' art. Usually it is only specialist artists who purchase concept art books that contain the art from a particular movie or game.
The Concept artist will most likely see hi

I initially joined up as a regular member with ConceptWorld a few months back because as a budding concept artist I was looking for a group to really get involved in and it certainly was the best concept art group I found on DA. Oh there are others out there, but none that are focused not only on showcasing some really awesome art , but also on being actively involved in developing the community.
Did I mention that we ( I can technically say we now can't I? ) also produce a digital magazine all about concept art called Concepteez, and best of all, it's TOTALLY FREE. Why wouldn't you go check it out really?

So yeah as you folks might know, I watch a fuckton of people on dA (3,429 as of today). Among them, only a very few select individuals were added because I consider them as ''friend'' and even then a good portion of them have mad skills. So in the end I can safely say that I watch at least 3,400 individuals for their skills alone.
While a lot of them have the pageviews they deserve, a good portion of them go unnoticed because X or Y reason, whichever the case, it absolutely ENRAGE me to see those case. While browsing dA I encounter plenty of unskilled folks being sickenly popular for the sole reason that they drew some sorts of shitty naruto

Wacom Driver Not Booting Properly?Time To Share Some WisdomWacom Driver Not Booting Properly?9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Trouble with your Wacom driver not booting properly on windows? For the longest time I had problems with my Wacom tablet being ready to work once Windows finished booting. When I picked up the pen it just didn't move. When I tried to open the Wacom Tablet Properties I got the message that the driver did not load or something. Only way to resolve this was to reboot the machine. Not via 'restart' no... a complete shutdown was necessary. Very annoying when your Windows takes a while to boot. Mine surely does.
Recently I had enough and started to look for a solution (for the 10th time or so). With the difference that I seem to have found one now. Don't bother with the Wacom forums. As far as I can see they don't have much of a solution. But anyways. What can you do to solve the issue? Well, time to share some wisdom. Here we go:
