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,

I will be sending them in batches (around 45 to 50 at a time). I'll keep this page updated as to which orders I have sent and not so, etc.
My trips to the post office for those batches respectively will be on the 11th, 14th, 17th and 20th. It's safer to not post all at once and this will give me enough time to rest in between since I'll have to pack everything / fill in forms :3c
As soon as I pack your order for the batch, I'll contact you checking your address again! I will be keeping hold of your copy no matter what until I get your OK to post it. It's better to be safe than sorry and it has been a period of time
The average it takes to arrive from around the world is a week or two! Though this may take longer or shorter, post has a mind of it's own \o/ I really hope you do enjoy the book!
I'm happy if you are interested i

Pressure Sensitivity in Paint Tool SAIWith this most recent edit, I put this journal under Art News -> Resources, for easier access!Pressure Sensitivity in Paint Tool SAI6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Okay guys, I know this is super popular post for this issue. I am just a person who owns a tablet. I don't know how to fix this problem for any tablet other than the ones mentioned. PLEASE read the ENTIRE post before posting a question or asking for help. If you have a type of tablet that I've reported doesn't work with this method, please don't try to do it and then post that it doesn't work. I also now own a Mac, and SAI doesn't have sense of pressure sensitivity with Macs at all, nor will they ever, because the person who made the program hates everything. If someone can make a Mac version, I'll post the link all over everything ever and love you always. o:
But I do use a PC at work, running Windows Vista and using a Bamboo Touch. I don't use SAI, strictly Adobe Flash, but when my tablet malfunctio
My Two cents on Portfolio ReviewsYou know, I see quite a bit of portfolio on a regular basis, and even more so when I go to comic con and CTN.My Two cents on Portfolio Reviews2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This time around was the same thing, I saw quite a few portfolios. Some good ones and some that miss the mark.
There were a few in particular that caught my eye.. a few extremely good ones, and a few that just didn't work, and I wanted to try and share my opinions about portfolios in general.
This is just my point of view, based on MY experience and definitely not a definitely law, rule, or "must do". Just what I noticed in many student's and young professional's portfolios.
The first thing that strikes me is how similar portfolios can be from one student to another..I can almost always tell when one student is from Art Center, San Jose State, Otis, Sheridan or any other major school. It's a good thing and a bad thing. Mainly a bad thing though
Just a few personal thoughts on portfolios since I just came back from comic con and saw a ton over there.
Your portfolio should be a r
5 Career Killers“Whatever happened to that guy? The guy that drew that thing?5 Career Killers1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Comic careers are like any other career in entertainment: if you don't stay relevant and adapt to a trend, you'll eventually peak and then bottom out. But there are more things that can help end a career. Here's a list of 5 that I've been thinking about lately.
1. SOCIAL MEDIA TAKE-DOWN
The creator does something that somehow goes viral, turning his (or her) readers against him. Bad behavior at a convention, sexual harassment online, or a semi-racist Tweet made worse by bumbling attempts to correct it. Or maybe the creator gets blamed for something innocent: innocent comments taken out of context, or involvement in a controversial project that he had no say over. Whatever the case, “social media take-downs” can harm careers, leaving a permanent black mark on your career.
I imagine this one is the most common: no matter how hard you work—and no matter how much a

A bit of a ramble from me to youHello everyone! Long time no see.A bit of a ramble from me to you4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm going to take this time to reflect on some things.
I was talking to Moorina and she inspired me to write this in detail and share with you all ^^
I've been doing doujin work and publishing in Japan for 4 years now... looking back, there has been a ton of sacrifices and bad decisions to be made. My life in general was kinda weird.
This is quite personal, but I though I'd share my life/experience with you guys.
My family was never well off. A lot of our friends don't know of our situation, of course. Our mother was gambling every single day and our father was never home. Mom would take all day looking around the house for hidden cash (stashed from my dad) while dad goes out to play pool with his friends. Our family borrows money from relatives and that's how we get by. If you go back to my journal entries from 2004, those were the days where we had to go to the internet cafe just to use the net because we couldn't afford to pay for anything per month

Action-Adventure Storyboard Online Workshop
FEB 7th, 2015 ~ MAR 28th, 2015
Sat 10AM - 12PM (PT) @ FUZE Web Meeting
In the past 8 years of storyboarding in the entertainment industry, working on action-adventure shows, like The Legend of Korra, TMNT, and Ben10, has been the most unique and thrilling experience of my career. I’ve learned and gained so much and they satisfied my artistic craving. I heart Action-Adventure animation genre!
I'm hosting an 8-week storyboard online workshop where I'll share basic principles and fundamentals of cinematic storyboarding and demonstrate how to apply them into an actual storyboard execution. From story beat breakdown to composition to laying out camera lenses to character acting and more, from basic technical skills to the creative process, I will share the important key knowledge of cinematic storyboarding. And I’ll demonstrate to you, step-by-step, how I storyboard.
I know there are many other
REAL CREATIVISM LOGA lot of people ask me what do i think when im drawing, whats your creative process, and what are the magical fairies you are thinking while you draw, about life, beauty and wisdom of the world. You will be surprised how thats not what i think while i draw and how this process repeats all the time while i draw.REAL CREATIVISM LOG3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The purpose of this journal its to let people know how we are all filled with doubts agony and stupid funny things while we draw. So you wont feel you are doing something wrong.
Will be cool if this became a spam, and people started to share in their journals the same way i did while you are at work.
Okay, lets star, first the setting, if you had seen the tv show 24, picture that way while im drawing, with several cameras on my sides, this will make the reading more funny, if you havent seen the show picture this sound each time you read time passes, while im drawing.
Okay lets start.

Many of you are probably aware that we did a giveaway on Tumblr and Facebook a while back - don't worry we haven't forgotten about it.
We apologize for the delay; we were busy with preorders.
Tumblr winners have been notified, but there is a problem with Facebook due to privacy settings.
We could only see the list of people who shared the post AND had a "public" profile. And as you all know, many people have their Facebook on private because of security reasons. We didn't know this before the giveaway because we aren't that familiar with Facebook.
To make up for this, we are giving away

This journal I decided to make it helpful. (hopefully) ^^
If you like to paint digitally, it doesn't matter what program you are using.
As long as it is functional enough for you, and you enjoy painting when you use it. ^^
I love to try all painting programs, it's like exploring!
Though we already know that Photoshop, Painter and Sai are great, but there are free ones
that good enough to create artwork as beautiful as those programs. ^^
Many times that I randomly posted about them but this time I want to collect them all here!
So it will be convenient for you all to check and compare them.
What I can say is that I'm grateful and appreciate those creators who spent their time and hard working and share them to us.
That's why I want to support and share them to you all!
Thankyou and Fanime 2012!Thankyou for all the comments and even sharing your stories! It was hard to write it out (and we didn't even go into the details! lol;; ) and I felt really shy about it, but it was a learning experience ^^ I wrote from my point-of-view and what I had to say about it~ both sis and bro have their own stories about it too, but that's for them to write out if they ever wanted to ^^ When we went through all that, they were so poised!!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year!
2012 has been quite tough on me and my family (yep, the problems I've mentioned before just escalated and it's affecting us even more) but we are all looking forward to 2013 with more determination.
All we can do is support each other and try to help our parents.
I got a PS vita for cheap from my bro, but as my Christmas gift he and sis got me 16 GB memory card, P4G and Ragnarok Odyssey. I didn't start P4 yet, but played RO which was quite fun! I am so in love with my vita! I bought FFT:WotL again.. it's like my 4th time playing it. My favourite game of all time~ then later bro got me a 3 month plus account to try it out... FFT was for free there lol But I downloaded Gravity Rush~ I just finished Sound Shapes, it's such a cute game!
