about style copyingtoday I found out a girl copied my shading style while wondering on the Chinese micro blog community (which is quite similar to twitter), who had been copying suoh's style for quite a while. I was rather amused by this cuz my shading style is pretty hard to learn and copy since there's no such thing as 'where the shade should be', i just shade them where I like =x and as I expected she messed up the light source and the shading is a mess lol...about style copying4 years ago in Personal More Like This
the reason I wrote this entry is not really about me being copied, she failed at it and I dun give a shiet. I want to chat with u all on the issue of 'style plagiarism'. I know most people think it's all right to copy other artists' style as they are still 'learning how to draw'. I myself was influenced by many artists too, tho I never really copied their entire style (which includes lineart, composition and coloring).
I myself is against style plagiarism. first a style is like the spirit of a pic, and it's what makes people remember the artist,

rant #9000 : misanthropesAs of late I've tried not to offend people on my deviantart (choosing to take my rather obnoxious opinions to my tumblr instead), but I haven't done a rant post on my journal here in quite a while and as such felt it was... well, about damn time.rant #9000 : misanthropes4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Fact : A dislike or hatred for something, be it an object, an individual, a group of people, a continent, or a galaxy, does not give you superiority over it.
This is not to say that there are not instances in which it is okay to take the moral high ground over a group of other people (such as pedophiles, rapists, people who don't turn off their mobiles at the cinema...). I'm merely pointing out that the act of hatred does not give you instant superiority.
For instance, as an individual, I really dislike eating strong cheese. I just don't like the taste all that much; however, that doesn't give me a license to in turn feel like I'm better than people who do enjoy eating strong cheeses. That was kind of a ridiculous example, but, well...

Amnesia: Amnesia art would go here. Stephano, Jennifer, Mr.Chair and Piggeh wouldn't go here. They'd would fit better in the Bro Family folder. Barrels should go here because they are not part of the bro family.
Ao Oni: Ao Oni art.
Ju-On the Grudge: Ju-On the Grudge art.
Afraid of monsters: Pictures that focus on Afraid of monsters. Ruben would go here.
Cry of fear: Pictures that might have Pewdiepie screaming "FOR LADY GAGA!!". Cry and Pewdie did do something together on this but if it has cry it would go in the Cry folder.

Let me just share some facts with ya'll...So it's just a normal day and you're just browsing your all-time favorite website, DeviantART. But then something catches your eye, a Deviation with a nicely drawn full-body with an interesting design. You click on it and see that design sold for a whopping 200+ USD. THAT'S ABSOLUTELY CRAZY, RIGHT?? I mean how dare the artist accept a good few hundred dollars for a design that even an ape could've made. After all, art doesn't take years and years of practice and anyone can just pick up a pen and pop out some great anatomy and originality.Let me just share some facts with ya'll...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
OHH BUT THE ARTIST ISN'T ENTIRELY AT FAULT HERE. Oh no, it's also the buyer's fault for spending so much goddamn money on a piece of digital art that the artist probably copied out of a Vogue magazine (since designing is effortless!!). How dare the buyer spend their money on something they love and enjoy instead of donating it all to starving children in third world countries along with all their luxury goods (like computers, television sets etc

Feel free to read and share your thoughts if you want, but for the most part this is just to keep a record for myself ^p^///
Last night I had a really deep dream. I woke up not getting up from bed for a while... just thinking and thinking, and at the same time feeling silly I was thinking so much about a dream (I usually don't care about dream analysis/interpretations) but I couldn't help it, haha///
I dreamt I was very aged-... on the verge of dying, even. I don't remember much of what I looked like in this state, except everything was very white and I was wearing a white hospital-like gown and lying down somewhere, un-moving and unable to speak. In my dream, this was the "real world" - I was old, and I was dying. But as a dying old person, I "relived" my life again through a series of dreams (yes, like dreaming dreams within a dream-... Inception ^p^), where I was able to meet and interact with the var

Tutorial: How to hide knotsHere's a quickie tutorial I put together on how to effectively hide knots and make your closed seams pretty!Tutorial: How to hide knots2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tuck in your seam allowance.
Use a ladder stitch to close the seam. When you tug the thread the stitches disappear!
When you finish closing your seam knot your thread and place the needle into the same place your thread came out.
Push the needle through to the other side and gently tug the thread until you hear the knot pop through. You've successfully hidden your knot!
If you're using minky, take a needle and carefully brush the fur out of the seam. When you're finished you should have a nice pretty seam that's barely visible!

Eu não sou a melhor pessoa para passar dicas à alguém. Na verdade, eu nem me considero suficientemente capaz de dar algum ensinamento. Mas eu sempre fui muito curiosa e interessada com o mundo da pintura digital, ficando horas e horas e horas assistindo vídeos de 2 horas de duração no Youtube, livestreams intermináveis, a fim de aprender. Apesar da necessidade de se ter uma paciência (de ouro), foi o que mais me ajudou a aprender e a desenvolver os meus conhecimentos. Criando esse hábito, acabei conhecendo e desenvolvendo as técnicas que apresento hoje nos meus trabalhos. Provavelmente como muitos de vocês que agora me leem, cheguei a pedir a ajuda de muuitos artistas que eu admirava, e alguns até me ajudaram como podiam, mas a maioria simplesmente não se importa com o quanto

Full blog and details found here: http://dreamorchid78.deviantart.com/journal/Back-with-a-bang-and-CONTEST-303007033
The contest can be from line art to a painting (digital or traditional). You can enter up to three pictures. While you don't have to pick from the list (since they're just suggestions), the drawing must fit a fantasy scenario, person or creature. A hint will be to try to incorporate a scene along with a fantasy character. You can do either evil or good. Also this MUST be original design and artwork (we're avid art fans of fantasy and know a lot of work out there so don't plagiarizer someone). Also we will disqualify any thing that looks exactly like a dark elf from WOW, Lineage II, or any other game. I really would like to see originality in this and I

CritStop 03 - Art school vs self teaching?Greetings Concepteez!CritStop 03 - Art school vs self teaching?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Apologies for missing out on the CritStop last week. I was at a weekend long concept-design workshop which didn't leave me with much time to do a post.
I might run down some of the things we did in the workshop in a future post, but this week I thought I would do something a little bit different. I have been getting quite a few queries over the last few weeks about making the choice between formal training courses such as university or college over that of self-teaching and using online resources and short courses. One of these was Nyte-Tyme who wrote:
"I mentioned before that I am currently attending a school called ------- University. So far, my first semester of a Junior year here has been bad. Art history classes (which I think are somewhat necessary) a Physics of Light and Color class. A web design class and a video and audio class which was essentially a film class after awhile.

Yes, it's against the battle maison, but I don't care. It is one of the most epic battles ever, and it kind of shows how I use a whimsicott/togekiss combo. And how Nidoking is awesome. By the way, the match counts as a victory in my favor.

Pay the PayPal FeesHave you seen someone take commissions with the following in their terms: you must pay the PayPal fee (calculate it at a site like http://www.ppcalc.com)?Pay the PayPal Fees4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Every time I run across someone with those terms, I tell them this is against PayPal's terms of service. Some respond 'oh, okay' and remove it, others argue with me and say it's not against their terms. One person has said they will refuse to work on the commission unless I do pay the fees.
I contacted PayPal directly regarding this to get final word on whether this is a violation or not.
Here is my question:
When I am shopping online, I often see people have a rule that if you pay with PayPal, you have to calculate the "paypal fee" and add that on top of the price of the product or service. Some people will refuse to ship or work if they do not receive the "full amount" (without the paypal fee added in).
Is it against the paypal terms of service for these people to do this? What should I tell them
