Fantastic Custom Anime Figures Welcome to the World of Custom-Painted Anime/VG FiguresFantastic Custom Anime Figures4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Have you ever enjoyed a series of anime/manga/video games so much that you must have figures of the main characters? Oftentimes, one would go to online or local stores that sell anime/VG products and buy pre-painted figures to satisfy the urge. Well, this news article will showcase custom painted figures that are not mass-produced rather, they are figures custom built from a kit and then painted by the hobbyist/artist.
What Is GK?
Custom-painted anime figures are generally built from a kit of pre-made parts. The kit is called GK. GK stands for garage kit. It originates from the way it is usually made generally in very small batch (quantity in the dozens or less) and in a hobbyist environment such as the garage hence garage kit.

So You Want to be A Cartoonist?(This journal is made for people that are interesting in cartooning/animating, want to make it their career, etc.)So You Want to be A Cartoonist?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So you want to be a cartoonist? Well just like acting/voice acting, it takes a lot of hard work to get there. Once again, it does not happen overnight. The question is to a lot of us is how do you get there?
First off, you have to be drawing a lot (almost everyday). Drawing daily helps you improve your skills. The more you practice, the better you get. If you have trouble drawing something (like people), there are tutorial books out there that can help you and even videos on Youtube.
Next, you have to learn how animation works. Taking classes on it at a community college can help. If you can't afford to attend school, then look into books, or watch Disney DVDs that has "The Making Of." (I have actually learned how animation works thanks to Disney.) You can even watch "How to Animate" videos on Youtube --> http://www.youtube.co
How to Do Requests For BeginnersHello and welcome to the "How to Do Requests" Journal. This journal will explain each requests category (Request, Art Trades, Collabs, Point Commissions, etc.), how to keep the requests organized, tips, etc.How to Do Requests For Beginners3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A Request is when someone asks you to draw a picture for them of anything by their choice. Requests are mostly free art.
Most people that start drawing pictures for others usually start with requests before moving onto the other categories. Doing these can sometimes take a lot of time or no time at all. It all depends on what the request is. So, starting here would be good for beginners (just to get the idea and used to how it runs).
An Art Trade is when you and another artist (your requester) do a picture for each other.
This category is actually pretty fun. Some artists still like to do this one from time to time. Doi

10 beneficial things artists should ask themselvesHere's 10 important questions to ask yourself. Read them constantly as a checklist to make sure your are heading in the right direction and using your artistic potential.10 beneficial things artists should ask themselves4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1. What motivates you to create art? Write down your answer and think about how you can use this very important information.
2. What kinds of information have you been putting on the internet? The internet is the new resume. If I can find dumb pics or comments from you then other people can too...
3. Does your art express something interesting? Great art means something to its viewers, not just its creator.
4. Does failure push you forward? How you deal with failure will determine how skillfull you will become.
5. Do you enjoy arguing or flaming people's work? If you are the type of person to hate on others, it will come back to you. Especially with the internet and all the social networking.
6. Do you try out new methods/materials/subjects that might be unconfortable at first? Success is inevitable if you always choo
Don't Go to Art School (Response)https://medium.com/i-m-h-o/138c5efd45e9 <--- Read this, dudesDon't Go to Art School (Response)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I agree with this post but I've never told anyone to not to go to art school or university.
People ask me all the time what school do I go to (ALL THE TIME). I always respond "just a cheap state university", but it kinda of bugs when people want me to be specific when it really doesn't matter.
I don't like the bureaucratic system in my university. I think taking GE classes are a waste of time and should only count as electives. I hate how the university uses the horrible methods to teach us art since it never works. I hate how the Art Department does not offer a lot of classes compared to other departments.
I took over five Animation classes and none of them helped me. What helped me was studying from the "Preston Blair Animation book". I studied it on my own time when I was doing an internship in Florida (nothing to do with my career but it was fun).
I've seen students struggle because they were not taught properly how t

My Best Motivational TipWhen I become overcome with the guilt and shame and fear as a result of my constant procrastination, I have one trick to get me off my ass that works every time.My Best Motivational Tip3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, lots of other people and blogs and whatever are all like "look how lucky you are" and "puppies and rainbows" and "if you get it done now, you'll feel better" and lots of other positive shit. While all this stuff is true, I'm still playing Assassin's Creed II for like four hours a day. It doesn't motivate me at all. I still don't want to write a 500 word essay on the subtle differences between the book and the film adaptation of The Road that's due, like, tomorrow.
So here's what I think of.
"Michael Bay wants me to fail."
Insert your own celebrity arch nemesis if you want to, but basically choose someone so crap that it makes you angry. Preferably someone who's getting paid buckets of money to do whatever they do to piss you off.
Competitive nature and the desire to prove your chosen asshole wrong should take over.

I figured that I should just let people see what I have and offer help and advice. I am using Gamemaker and and this point any advice and help you can offer will help me out. I am not a good programmer...I don't even understand half of what I put in this...but I want to finish what I started.
Things you should know:
Blocks don't work
Powerups don't work

If you get hit by and enemy you die.

I know there are a lot of things missing. But seriously this is my first time and I already know it sucks so please don't be critical...I am an artist not a programmer.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could achieve the goals that we are working towards more quickly?
The world is speeding up all around us, and thankfully we're able to speed up as well and get more of what we want in less time. Here's some tips that will help you become the artist that you want to be more quickly.
Don't make mistakes - gain experience...
When you are learning if you think too critically of your work it may cause your brain some discomfort. The brain likes to succeed so when you don't quite get the results that you were aiming for, with the wrong attitude it can cause you some distress. Instead of looking at these attempts as 'failures,' you should see them always as opportunities to grow and gain experience.
The problem with looking at a work as a 'failure' is that it won't be too long u

Hot Topic selling artist's works without permission
A Tumblr post has been circulating, where Hot Topic is selling artist's works as T-shirts in their store, including popular fan art without the artist's permission, deviant artists included. It caught on wildfire when one user linked to deviantART's Submission Policy, stating users gave permission to dA by agreeing to their Terms of Service thereby allowing dA to sell it to third party royalty free.
