I WAS MOST PERTURBED/DISTURBED/ANNOYED/JAXTAPOSED TO DISCOVER THAT OUR LOVELY UNIVERSE IS SHRINKING!
AS A CONSTITUENT OF THE UNIVERSE AND HIGHLY RESPECTABLE REPRESENTATIVE OF PLANET EARTH AND KING OF THE NATION OF CAPTANIA, I FIND THIS UNSUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT UNNACEPTABLE AND MUST INSIST THAT YOU TAKE ACTION TO RETURN THE UNIVERSE TO ITS RIGHTFUL SIZE OR AT LEAST PREVENT ANY FURTHER REDUCTIONS.
I KNOW, YOU THINK IT'S OKAY, THE UNIVERSE IS INFINITE, AND YOU THINK YOU CAN JUST IGNORE THIS ISSUE IN HOPES THAT IT WILL GO AWAY.
HOWEVER, ACCORDING TO MY CALCULATIONS, THE END OF THE UNIVERSE IS INEVITABLE AND WE HAVE ONLY 60 CYCLES LEFT AT BEST, MAYBE 80 UNTIL OUR UNIVERSE CEASES TO EXIST ENTIRELY, IT'S ENERGY PERMANENTLY SHIFTING INTO ANOTHER STATE OF EXISTENCE.
OH BEHALF OF THE PEOPLES OF CAPTANIA (POPULATION: 4) I APPEAL TO YOUR HYPER-GALACTIC-MIND TO CONSIDER MY CASE AND HAVE IT REVIEWED BEFORE THE END O

To anyone who finds these memory cards,
and the messages left within...
My name is Charles Snippy. I am probably the last sane human being left on earth. I know not whether you will understand this message. I know not whether you'll even be able to decode the ones and zeros on these data cards. I know not whether my voice will even reach anyone.
I know not, whether the microscopic drives will last long enough and whether the plastic and metal which composes them will not disintegrate into dust as centuries pass or whether the titanium shell encasing them will remain in place or be consumed by the ever-changing landscape, lost forever.
And yet I still have hope that someone will find the story of my life, long past and learns something of use from it.
If you are still human, then this will be a story about the collapse of civilization of your forefathers through greed and arrogance.
If you are some other species entirely, then it is a story about how our human race was extin

ARGGHHHH my boonnneeesssss are so hurrttyyy. Call it Arthritis, joint pain, overworking, etc. ... You probably have it too.
Playing lots of fighters on arcade sticks and a few obsessive years of Beatmania doesn't help.
A year ago I started taking Black Cherry Extract, on the advice of my dad who has horrific knobby hands that look like his fingers are made up of old blocky G1 combiner transformers. I noticed absolutely no pain in like a day, if not hours.
1000mg a day. Do it.
It's got be BLACK cherry though. Tart cherry of regular cherry won't cut it. They're alright, but not as good.
ANYWAY. Ran out a few days ago. My hands hurt like hell... going to GNC when they open.

It goes without saying that a Wacom tablet is a must have for any digital artist or even the hobby art enthusiast. Released early this year the Intuos 5 is available in multiple sizes and proportions, and it includes 60 degrees of tilt sensitivity (50 degrees in small model) and 2048 levels of pressure due to EMR (Electro Magnetic Resonance) technology in the Wacom pen. The Intuos 5 also has touch controls on the drawing surface, allowing the user to manipulate the canvas with multi-touch gestures.
If you know someone that already has a Wacom tablet think about accessorizing! All tablets will need new nibs from time to time. http://blogs

Cthulhu is Still Calling
Written By techgnotic
Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq

That song works surprisingly well for this journal. ANYWAY.
SO! Hey guys! You can actually go vote now on my current poll about trolling: http://skirtzzz.deviantart.com/journal/poll/2883578/
I worked for a company all last year that dealt with internet bullying. Trolling most definitely falls into the same category. Which, in my case, I find it ironic when I get rude comments and trolls- it's like setting fire to a fireman's house. We studied the whole concept so deeply at work- as to why people troll in the first place, and the list goes on and on, but it really boils down to an overall insecurity, which the safety of a computer screen can easily bandage.

Titan FormulaQuite often in comics, we creators look for formulas or tropes to work from. A formula is essentially a recipe... While you can make slight alterations or changes to it, in the end, you still got to follow that recipe somewhat to get something that approximates what you're baking. If you deviate too far, you get into the realm trying something new. Now most people will say that trying something new is a good idea, and you're right... When it's actually a good idea. Taking my late mother's delicious taco salad and swapping out the ground beef for seasoned chicken? That's a good idea. Taking taco salad and swapping out the ground beef for oysters? That's disgusting and you deserve to get sick. It's like storytelling as well. Following a formula is not a bad thing, in fact it can be exactly what's needed, otherwise you end up with Oyster Taco Salad. (Bleh!) There's a set formula for what the character you're working on has. It's okay to have ghosts in Star Trek, but you better make sure yTitan Formula2 years ago in Personal More Like This

A beautiful momentToday, after a manic week I went down by the riverside with my friend Scott. We saw the sun just before it was setting so we decided to move from our nice shaded grassy area to get a better glimpse. As we walked down we found a bench with a nice view so we sat there and took in the sun. Right above us was a single cloud that was raining ever so subtly on to us. And then I looked over to Scott and asked if that means there was going to be a rainbow? And in that exact moment a rainbow appeared. It was so utterly beautiful I wish you could've seen itA beautiful moment1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way, no rigid process you must adhere to, no shoulds or shouldn'ts except those you designate for yourself. This is one of the fun parts of being an artist, really - have a heady good time with it.

PE: Importance of AnatomyThe importance of anatomy.PE: Importance of Anatomy2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Understanding anatomy is crucial to many aspects of your art.
You'll notice that anatomy is essential for drawing. It becomes difficult to accurately draw a complex pose, or even a simple one, if you don't understand what's under all that skin or fur, or even bark. Knowing how everything fits together is important.
Once you notice where that certain muscle is, shading and form become much more accurate and more natural. Knowing why the nose and eyes fall where they do make it much easier to draw from memory, and nail that natural look you were going for.
Learning the anatomy of the subject you're going to draw is quite important, and will definitely help you on several levels.
It's also easier to drawing sequences of movement. One will know what connects to what, and how they move. What is possible, and what isn't. (Range of motion)
Drawing people and other animals can be intimidating. Once you have a solid foundation, it's much easier
