Season EnderYellow~! Its been awhile since I made a write-up for my gallery (more than a year?).Season Ender2 years ago in Personal More Like This
2013 has been a very busy year for me because of work and freelance (mobile app development) --- causing me to hibernate in photography for more than seven (7) months.
Aside from work, my favourite lens (Tokina UWA) got himself some fungus and my EOS 1000D got injured (like hot-shoe problem and sensor dust) --- as a result, I end up rejecting every invitation because I don't have any gear to use on --- and it took me awhile to send it to a server centre because of tight schedule
On a brighter side, I think this incident is nice because I still have some awful backlogs to catch-up with from 2012.
PICKING A NEW CAMERA
SO FAST FORWARD: Finally I got myself an editing device (a Macbook Pro for obvious reasons) and a new camera (Fuji X100S) because of my freelance.
Lots of my friends are asking me :
"Why pick a non-interchangeable camera…?"
"Why pick X100S..?"

CS 5 Brushes downloadI get questions about what brushes I use every now and then, and since Mega is giving away so much free space I thought I might as well throw them online. I'm not sure if the texture file is embedded correctly, so if these brushes are missing texture, please let me know and I'll upload that as well. For comparison, this is what a sample stroke from the third to fifth brush ought to look like (the first two brushes don't have a texture, one is the default hard edge round, the other is similarly standard) : http://i.imgur.com/zE3oOqx.jpgCS 5 Brushes download2 years ago in Personal More Like This
ANWAY, YOU NEED PHOTOSHOP CS 5, or higher, in order to use these brushes. Any version below won't have the 3D brush feature and I have no idea what will happen if you load these brushes into CS 4 or lower, but I'm assuming they just won't work. Sorry.

HOW TO GET PUBLISHEDThis is an old piece I wrote and posted a while ago, but just recently people have been asking what my experiences were with regard to publishing and getting published - so here it is again, with a few new notes added about dA and Madefire!HOW TO GET PUBLISHED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a very honest view based on 27 years experience as a writer, artist and publisher. The point here is to try to HELP you go into the business enlightened and with open-eyes, knowing what to expect. IT IS NOT INTENDED TO PUT YOU OFF! However, you should know that getting into comics is NOT easy - as too many people frequently imagine - and neither is it a glamorous 'rock-star' existence. It is hard work, as are all trades, and it should be treated as such. I see too many people despondent and badly hurt by their experience, and this can be avoided if you know what you are getting into right from the outset.
Getting into comics is something a lot of people want to know how to do, but there's a lot of questions you w
Whatever Happened to SpongebobNo I'm not talking about that episode; I'm talking about the show. I'm genuinely curious as to what happened to the Nicktoon Spongebob Squarepants over the past ten years. It went from a charming and funny show to one of the most mean-spirited, disgusting, and perverse shows that currently exists. Rebeltaxi99, a popular cartoon reviewer always says that people are complaining that the new episodes aren't as good. That's not true. The episodes are HORRIBLE. They have ranged from annoying to vile to cruel. A drop in quality would mean that we've gone from shining stars to plain mediocrity. Instead we've gone from episodes about selling chocolate bars door-to-door to episodes featuring a grotesque infected splinter and episodes making fun of suicide. I need to know how this happened, how it was allowed to happen, and more importantly--could this happen again?Whatever Happened to Spongebob1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Facebook is bad for artists?I had some interesting findings after posted a poll on DA regarding my Facebook Fan Page. Many have commented that they are against Facebook and discourage me from posting art over there due to various reasons, and one of them due to the possibility of having my art being used freely by this social media site. So here are my thoughts based on my experience running a FB page for a year.Facebook is bad for artists?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The main reason for me to set up a facebook page, is to extend my fanbase beyond DA, to the not so artist-oriented demographics. I have been using DA, and only DA, as my art HQ for the past decade and will always be. Facebook is acting as an outpost to connect with my fans in a more responsive manner due to the convenience of making posts, replies, making announcements and sharing images. Honestly, it is not my intention to choose between DA and FB, but to use both concurrently for different purposes.
So far I have not encountered any incident of FB using my images for advertising or any other comm

In this article we will expand that typeface and add italics and alternate weights.

I think they were intrigued by the action/comedy blend of the series, and liked the school setting as it's relatable to viewers. They definitely seemed interested in the fact that this series has more female fans than male fans, and that we've achieved this level of succ

EVEN MOAR SKIN SWATCHES!
The best way to improve is to draw from real life. That's the best way to learn. If you don't know how to draw a certain angle of a hand or an arm, you shouldn't fudge it, you should always look it up and figure out how to draw it right. Hiding the hands behind the body is a no-no, people! The proof of bsing is easy to see: http://neofox.deviantart.com/journal/ART-knowledge-is-power-282518336

OMG dA hates NarutoOk, so there's been a bit of drama today because a few Naruto images have been removed. People are blaming hackers and trolls and biased admins, but here's the real deal.OMG dA hates Naruto4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today we received a report about a group that was focused on sexualised images of the girls from Naruto. On inspection there were found to be well over a thousand images that broke our policies regarding underage characters. We removed these these policy violations, but as you can imagine, so many images being removed there was a bit of a stir caused. A very small amount of images were removed accidentally, but we've restored the ones that were and have been notified about. But we're talking less than1% of the images removed.
So why was all this removed?
In short deviantART does not allow the sexualisation of any image involving a human minor, real or fictional.
I know this seems a bit vague and it is clarified a bit in :faq248:
But what does that all really mean? Why is it so vague and subjec
