What Spyro's Kingdom WasWe finally have visual of what the first game concept of what Spyro's Kingdom looked like.What Spyro's Kingdom Was3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Apparently, this game was originally going to be a MMORPG, in the Legend of Spyro-themed universe. The Portal of Power is mentioned, and we were going to have to use toys to play as our dragon characters in the game world. And just like Spyro's Universe, we customize our lairs. This game idea was proposed to Activision, but it was rejected.

Quick Tips: On Referencing AnatomyReference from real life whenever possible.Quick Tips: On Referencing Anatomy4 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you reference or copy from another artist's studies/sketches/art, you may be copying their mistakes as well. Furthermore, an artist's studies are their notes and --just like with history or chemistry notes-- copying someone else's notes will not help you fully understand the material. To completely understand anatomy, you must take your own notes and build your own understanding through observation.
This is probably a no-brainer for many artists but... scruffynerfherder and I were talking about this last night, and with the increase of "anatomy studies" showing up on dA's front page, it's been on my mind. DA's resource category has some great material, but I also feel like there is a lot of misleading information taught by amateurs who really probably shouldn't be teaching things like shading or anatomy, because they have a less-than-stellar grasp on it themselves. I'm not trying to knock anyone here, but it's a bit tr
Project Sketch 'Em All UPDATEProject Sketch 'Em All4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok we're back, sorta. School is a terrible environment for art. And I have a lot of people who can vouch for that XD Anyway, the point is, I won't be working on it at 10 a day. Not for now, anyway. What is going to happen instead, is, I'll be drawing the remaining Pokemon first, then :IconAldenlite: will vector them. After that I'll color them all at one go, and you guys will see the complete collection. About time, I know. It's coming to the end of a school term, after which I have a week to rush up my homework, and of course, the project. Hopefully I can get it up by then.
Anyway due to the new sequence of actions, we'll actually need 3 progress bars to handle this.

New patterns and commission optionsSo.. this weekend I've been working on finalizing the new patterns i've been working on, that i've mentioned before. I noticed rather soon when I started testing them with fabric that they still need some tweaking before I can offer these as new commission options. These prototype plushies will be available at extra cheap prices once they're done because of minor pattern flaws.New patterns and commission options8 months ago in Personal More Like This
The following options will be available soon:
- Sitting (universal pattern meant for felines, canines and other species.)
- Howling wolf head
- Medium floppy
- Feline version of standing canine pattern
- Small standing (universal, same size as small floppy but with fixed pose)

Selling 50% of my feather collectionHey all,Selling 50% of my feather collection7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm going to sell about the half of my feather collection. I'm am planning to live somewhere else because of my study, in the middle of an city! Pretty exiting, but also a huge wakeup call because I really have too much feathers stored away.
I'll be sorting them out today and tomorrow, and I am going to take a lot of pictures and put them here online.
To give you a sneak peek of what I'm going to sell:
Eagle - Caracara - Penguin - hyacint macaw - argus pheasant and lots more!!
So look out for a load of feathers for sale!

Unfortunately, I'm having to sell my molds and casting supplies due to a very unfortunate development...I'm apparently now allergic to uncured resin. Regardless of wearing proper gloves and protection for myself, I still break out in a rash. So, my loss is your gain!!
I'm not going to stop making suit heads guys, don't you worry there. I'm just having to go back to my old school method and go with all foam construction. Any resin parts that I need will, unfortunately, have to be outsourced.
I'll take some pics and add them shortly. For now, I'll go ahead and list the items I have available for sale. Will sell individually, or all of them in a bundle if you give me an offer I can't refuse. This is PERFECT for starting your own suit making business. I just ask for credit for t

Animation techniques and more Ghibli thoughtsIn my last journal I mentioned the strange effect of seeing super cartoony flat characters moving around in a hyper realistic world. There's actually a name for this, it's call the "masking effect" and it was quite elaborately detailed by Scott McCloud in his book "understanding comics."Animation techniques and more Ghibli thoughts4 years ago in Personal More Like This
In comics, frequently the main characters are portrayed as cartoony and simple, while backgrounds often get very detailed. The basic concept is pretty simple. The more cartoony a character is drawn, the more appealing and relatable it is to us as we can more easily imagine ourselves in the role. The more realistic something is, the less of a personal connection you have to it. This is why villains tend to be drawn more realistically, and heros more cartoony. But it goes beyond just the characters... the environment also is affected.
If a person in a cartoon picks up a sword and starts swinging it around, the sword becomes an extension of their body and since it's animated, it becomes a drawn thing whic

Dinosaurs in media (help appreciated!)Hey, peeps! Feel like helping me with a little research for my thesis?Dinosaurs in media (help appreciated!)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Tell me a few things about what you think of dinosaurs, and try not to let my way of drawing them influence your view (pretend you’ve never seen me draw dinosaurs, mkay?) I’m trying to look into how dinosaurs are portrayed in media, and how that affects how people think about them, and figured that personalised answers would be a lot better than “somebody in the internet once said” (“person A of the people questioned for the study” sounds better than “my brother’s friend’s aunt’s dogsitter’s cousin twice removed once heard this rumour”, you know). I don’t need your name or who you are, I just need to be able to point that these answers came from real people. Bonus points if you can get someone to answer this who doesn’t know me at all (and thus can’t be influenced by my view of dinosaurs).
Thanks in advance! I really appreciate
Body shapes..My last picture and some other stuff made me think about the body shape topic.. againBody shapes..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
..and I wanna take the opportunity to write something down that is on my mind for a while and that I actually just really really understood yesterday..
Since I can remeber, I was chubby and it bothered me to death..
I'm not even really fat, actually I just have a few pounds too much.. but it still governed my life a lot..
I was never bullied or anything, but I always felt like everyone was talking about me, staring and laughing at me. Today I think I was just paranoid, but that didn't really helped me back then..
I was that unconfident, that I worn long shirts and pants for many summers, so people won't see my naked arms and legs.
I loved swimming, but I didn't for over a year now because I'm afraid of the glances..
I don't wanna meat new people or online friends, because I think they will be shocked or disgusted by my look..
I hate it if people touch me since it always reminds me of how uncomfortable

Wolf Drawing Lessons (update)I was wondering, would any of you guys be interested if I went on Live Stream to have a little "wolf drawing lesson?"

While I'm not perfect and no expert, I can give a few pointers and answer a few questions.
Maybe I can make it a weekly thing on Wednesday nights or something? I'm just saying Wednesday nights for the heck of it, I don't know what day of the week I would choose... Maybe Saturday nights?
What do you think?
These "lessons" could also branch out into other things as well.
Oh and by the way, this wouldn't be an individual thing, the stream would be open to anyone who wants to come.
A lot of you have been asking about saving the video, so yes I will be recording the video and saving it to Live Stream or uploading it to youtube if you miss it for whatever reason.

Music for 'Pull Down Heaven'I wanted to share this gorgeous song: https://soundcloud.com/sound_of_a_horseshoe/almost-sleepingMusic for 'Pull Down Heaven'1 year ago in Personal More Like This
"Almost Sleeping" was composed by SimplyHorse, inspired by "Pull Down Heaven." It's beautiful and haunting, equal parts somber and romantic! I fell in love with it immediately.
If you get a chance, check out his work. He only has three songs on soundcloud at the moment, but they display an impressive variety in style and influence.
Also, if anyone is curious, I sometimes listen to music while I am working on art, most often while planning the thumbnails for my comic pages. Some songs tend to stick out as a bit of a soundtrack, and I listen to them regularly. Here is a list of the ones that I felt particularly "spoke" to me, and the scenes that they go with.
Young Linan's Theme/The Architect's Gift
"Bioresearch Lab" from the SaGa Frontier soundtrack
