if you're trying to hire them lol. This is drama related, i was blocked on a thread that concerns a potentially scummy company before they blocked me for showing how they were being unprofessional. If you are from that forum thread, this is what my last response would have been. Everyone else (my watchers), please feel free to ignore!
Yes, who has more experience getting replies from companies, an artist who applies for many jobs with small and large companies or one guy who worked at one (or a handful) of companies?
Professional people do not call legitimate complaints "bitching", they do not call people "butthurt". They do not contact someone first and then stop replying (I never applied, in case you have trouble reading, you guys messaged me first). It may have not been totally professional of me to air this out publicly (my want to protect other artists can override professionalism some times), but if you were a pr
Something that bothers meWOW YAY RANT TIMESomething that bothers me10 months ago in Personal More Like This
There was a post on tumblr poking fun at people who say that "digital art isn't real art" and it made me think about how DUMB you have to be if you really think that.
I don't understand, I mean do they think you press a button and it makes magical art? No. That's not how it works. It takes time and effort just like if you were drawing on paper or painting. I've painted a picture before, and to be honest, its pretty much the same exact thing as drawing something on sai. You colour with layers, and you make more and more layers on top of that until boom you're done. A normal picture for me usually has about 30 something layers in the end, and I merge some of them, too. This picture has 39 layers. It took me about 2 days to do. I didn't press the magical button on sai to do it for me.
This picture took 44 layers and also like 2 days. I don't see how its not "art" just because I drew it on the computer
instead of paper. What's the differe

just kidding hahahahahahaha I got youuuu
okay but seriously, why is everyone leaving all of a sudden? After Puni deactivated, it became some kind of trend or something?
Okay, I might sound like I'm blaming Puni or something, but that's not true.
Maybe I don't understand because I don't really get trolled, but, I got trolled a lot on my very very very old account, and I didn't give a shit.
It really upsets me that ppl let others get to themselves so much, they feel like they need to leave a place that can actually be a great place..... eventually at least. I have hope that dA will restore order.
All I can hope for, I guess, is for those ppl to come back against all odds. Because I believe what everyone needs right now is a break.

I'm disgusted that there are people out there on the net who target Bronies and subject them to the kind of bullying and humiliation you've very eloquently reported on in recent blogs. I don't understand the My Little Pony thing myself, but there is unequivocally no justification for that kind of behaviour, period.
That being said, I must say I think you are wasting your considerable talents on this subject, Tygerbug. I remember opening a national newspaper here a few years ago and seeing your work in an article on fan animations of missing Doctor Who episodes. It's your life, and you must of course spend your time as you see fit, but I kind of wish you were still into doing that because it really had legs. Not to mention your excellent She-Hulk fan film too! Not just that either-- some of your portraits of people you've posted here are top notch

HomestuffCertain people are trying very, very hard right now to paint Homestuck fans and Pony fans as dangerous lunatics. To these people, fuck you.Homestuff1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Homestuck in particular, since it's independent and not corporately-owned, and it's intelligent and complex as hell and doesn't talk down to anyone. We need a lot more entertainment like that. We need a lot less people telling suspicious stories which may or may not have actually happened and saying the entire fandom is like that.
Both Homestuck and My Little Pony have something in common - What non-fans see when they look at the characters is very different from what fans see. It takes a long time for Homestuck to really get going, so people see a very simply, perhaps even "poorly" drawn comic in which nothing ever happens.
How many times have you heard this? "I gave Homestuck a chance. He had no arms and you had to enter his name and there was a magic chest and it's stupid and I give up."
If Homestuck was a 2-hour movie, these people quit within

Full-on Rant #2This is pretty big because I see it all the time. Not just with people here, but everywhere. It's practically imbedded into people.Full-on Rant #21 year ago in Personal More Like This
This whole self-righteous crap. You can see it on the front page a lot.
This kind of goes along with my last rant about pretentiousness. Here's my favorite one:
"Don't judge a book by its cover."
Sure. Fair enough. Though the problem with this is that most of the time, you actually CAN. If you see a guy walking down the street with long hair, dressed in black and wearing makeup, is it unnatural to assume that he likes death metal? Uh, NO?
I've just grown absolutely sick of how people think that they're so morally right when I guarantee that they do it too. Here's another that kind of goes with the last one:
"Beauty is on the inside."
Yeah, I'm absolutely positive that you're dating that one girl for her awesome personality. No. Looks definitely play a role. You wouldn't date a cave monster for its "rockin' personality". I'm just....urrrrgh. I thought this
A LightKeep in mind that everything you see on television and in the news is in some way controlled by about six corporations, and other wealthy interests. That includes all our politicians. The goal of corporations is to make money, more each year, without any regard for morality or its impact on the world, beyond what they can get away with legally.A Light1 year ago in Personal More Like This
We also live in a media-saturated culture. When you're watching something engineered to make money, the rough edges get smoothed away and things get dumbed down to make it more palatable for mass consumption. It's easy to make that mental leap from "this is dumbed-down" and "this is all owned" to "the world is dumbed-down" and "I am owned."
But the world doesn't change that quickly. You go outside and there's still the same sun, the same grass. If the media wants you to be a brainless consumer, that doesn't affect you or change anything about how you are..
If we listened to what other people expect of us, and think of us, and the limited opinion

In 2003, Jason Russell, that founder of Invisible Children went to Africa to talk to one of the kids who went to the safe house to avoid those kidnappers, who are called LRA, which is led by the one and only... Joseph Kony.

EDIT: HOLY SHIT! I actually got my modest Giratina! I was sitting there SRing watching Jack McCoy discuss a capital punishment case and BOOM! There he was! @_@ I am so pumped!
I have been playing Pokémon Platinum lately and I have decided that I want a shiny Giratina. I've never found a shiny in Pokémon and I want one! :iconlatantrumplz:
I have tried the chaining thing and I have tried breeding using the MM method and I have yet to get one. I figured that the one that would take the least amount of time and effort would be soft resetting with a modest Abra in the lead (for Synchro reasons. I'm hoping for a shiny, modest Giratina ).
I am somewhere around 8 days of soft resetting and still I am a shiny-Giratina-free-environment It's not very hard and/or time consuming really.

This is not directed at any one person, I have seen this happen often between many artists here on DA, and it doesnt bother everyone, but its something that can hurt another persons feelings so...here we go.
As I spend my time here on DA, I have come to notice that some artists, when commenting on others art, some people go ahead and say certain comments that arent really very pleasant to hear, honest or not.
"This is better than I can do"
"I wish I could draw as good as you"
"I suck at drawing this stuff, you're better"
Anything along that line.
Please, keep in mind.
More often than not, those artists that "cant draw as good as ___" actually PASS those artists in skill later on.
AS LONG AS THEY REMAIN POSITIVE!
As long as you stay always negative and bash your art, it wont improve D: You must be confident that you can improve in ti

One of these journals cause I'm finally tipsy while having access to the internet. Normally my spelling improves with alcohol (weird, I know) but tonight beer seems to be hitting my system harder than normal (which means letters start to replace others at times so my spelling goes back to normal). SO YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.

Plus I am really enjoying just learning art things. Hated high school with such passion, but I still did well. Kinda feel rewarding to have fun at school for once, ya know?
Also feeling kinda bad about stuff. I had an awesome summer heading to Finland and being there for a month. Pure. Bliss. But ever since I got back it was kinda "eeeeeeh not to great but not too bad". Have a few things hanging over my head
guysOkay, I probably have no right to dictate what is and isn't pixel art (I don't even do it ((often))), but I don't think that drawing a picture as you normally would but with the binary tool in Paint Tool SAI = pixel art.
