First of all, before reading this, step off of those high horses of yours and open your mind to what I'm saying.
Are you off? Safe and unsaddled? Not tied up in the bridle? Good!
Before I start talking about tracing let me give you a bit of background information on myself. Me? I'm a very arrogant person sometimes. I often believe my way is right and always will be right, even if it's dead wrong. No matter what other people say to me, a lot of the time I have to realize the truth myself before believing it. As for my beliefs on tracing - I never really cared about if other people traced or not. It never got me mad nor did I care to report it on this site because I thought people would just make themselves look stupid doing so.
Recently I have been hating my art furiously (hence the empty gallery) so I sat for a while a couple nights ago and wondered WHY. Why do I feel my art is so amateur, and lacking, and underdeveloped for my age?

A small talk about pricing your artYou're creating art. You have the passion, you have the skills. Why not make some money out of it then? It's a good idea, right? A lot of people live from creating art, and even more earn some money on the side by taking commissions. You should give it a shot!A small talk about pricing your art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So... How much money is your art worth?
It's a hard question to answer for those who are just starting their adventure with selling and creating art for money. Is its worth equal to the price of the materials you used? Is it equal to the value of the time you've spent on creating it? What about the emotional value you put into it? Should your education influence your prices?
No matter if art is your job, hobby or a pastime, you should never undervalue it. In this article I will try to give some tips as to how assess the value of your artwork and touch the problem of too low prices.
We're in it for the money.
Let's be honest - if you're reading this then you probably want

Hi!Hello people...Hi!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just realized, I'm so cold all this years. I rarely reply to comments, even notes, its like I only care for commission related.
But believe me, I didn't mean to!
So many things happen and they're make me not capable to even do it.
I felt guilty, because this site, this certain community gave me so much, will to push harder, to get better, even money for living.
And I'm start thinking, why didn't I give something back?
Starting from now, I will start to re-organize, redesign, or maybe develop something new for anything related to this site.
Maybe like make new CSS for my journal, organize some contest, and make a proper commission rate list.
I need to be more grateful for my miserable existence.
Lets see what I've got!

I'll resite this quote from my pal :iconunknow-akatsuki:Unknow-Akatsuki:
"I don't feel motivated to work here anymore. I still have motivation to draw, but other things now (like sprite sheets for The Spriters Resource)...I also don't get much motivation from my watchers as I would like. I have 697 watchers, but only like 5 care about what I post. Even then, alot of the work I'm proud of, or want to do (my original characters, I'm so sorry), gets overlooked by fan art and perverted works."
I've also tried working a bit on the Wiki, just to start up a format that'll allow me to explain the different plot elements a bit more. So for those of you that still care, there's that you can look forward to.

Wczoraj obejrzałem coś obok czego po prostu nie mogę przejść obojętnie i muszę się o tym nieco porozpisywać. Mowa będzie o Anicie Sarkeesian i jej ostatnich filmikach o seksualizowanych kobietach jako dekoracji w grach komputerowych. Znałem ją już wcześniej i uznawałem za osobę mówiącą kontrowersyjnie, ale mającą też nieco racji. Piszę teraz nie dlatego, że śmie ona krytycznie mówić o moich męskich zabawkach, ale z powodu rażącej ignorancji i niekompetencji.

Well, it's without a surprise that the world didn't end yesterday. I mean, really? Our calender ends all the time in December it should be no surprise that when the Mayan calender ends, it, like ours, just starts all over again.
I will say, however, I have been feeling weird. Now I know for fact, I am an Empath (had a qualified spiritualist with a degree in Metaphysics tell me) so I'm just wondering if humanity is indeed going through a shift in our way of thinking... or I'm just suffering from some serious jet lag. (I'm in America for those who didn't hear me screaming about that every opportunity I got.)

Song Review: 'Default' by Django DjangoBand/artist: Django DjangoSong Review: 'Default' by Django Django3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Album: Django Django (2012)
Genre: Art rock, indie rock
Link to song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?vDjpOrlfh0Y
About a week ago, I decided to go on another rampage of discovery, looking for several new bands to listen to and fresh sounds to add to my iTunes collection. To do this, I decided on a simple task: Go to Metacritic and look over the top-rated albums of the year. In this method, I'd be finding surefire critically acclaimed music, and maybe a great debut or two.
I struck gold with Django Django.
Possibly their most popular song (challenged by their first single, Storm), Default starts out... interestingly. A voice stutters (with the evidence of computer-play as the culprit being obvious) as psychedelic noises somewhat recalling 90's dial-up internet and a bouncing drumbeat lead into the song, the guitar blending into the background. In the 20 seconds you hear this for the first, you have half a compulsion to s

I can't begin to describe how incredibly happy I am.
I have an amazing girlfriend, an amazing business, amazing colleagues and not a single worry in the world. When somebody however, tries to tell me in so many words "fuck you" because they can't handle the fact that I'm happy and moving up the world, guess what? Zero fucks are given.
I'm not interested in being dragged down and wallowing in self-pity and self-despair. Those days are over. They're an ugly part of my past that are just that. My past. It can stay there.
I look back at my history and realize that, right now, it seems like it was all just a dream. In a sense it is... It doesn't exist anymore.
People who can't let go and live in the past are trapped in identifying themselves with their past.
I don't regret my past. What's the point? All those experiences have led me to be who I am today and I'm proud of who and what I am. I am the one half of someone else's heart. Y

Yesterday my home country, the Czech republic, celebrated one very important and wonderful anniversary. TWENTY YEARS OF FREEDOM! Exactly 20 years ago, famous ,,Velvet revolution started and it finally brought us freedom and democracy.
And I want to tell you more.
It was a result of the historical evolution, result of the World war II, but also Czech blame too. The communist party took power in my country in 1948.
This was the beginning of totality, which lasted for 40 years.
I can not describe all the terrible things which happened during the communist rule.
Just to make YOU, people, who never lived in any undemocratic country, understand:
after 1948, all the political parties were in fact dissolved or they became the part of the only offical party the Communist one. So no democracy. No free elections.
all the media, TV, radio, press were under Communist control and were regulated with censorhip. Police was arresting people, who politely

The authors also held a seminar where they spoke about the early years of the Games Workshop, which they founded. During this talk, they touched on the cover art of the game books, and how their publishers wanted illustrations of fairies and mushrooms and pretty things, while Livingstone and Jackson wanted imagery of things that would tear your face off.
They won. More or less.
Generally, all the FF game books have the same covers wherever they are released. So, Deathtrap Dungeon looks like this in most corners of the world:
