Yeah. I try to make beautiful 3D women.Regarding all the stuff that has come up in the last year about women in games, and tropes in videogames etc etc unequality and all that. I wrote this over at polycount but sharing it here.Yeah. I try to make beautiful 3D women.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not sorry at all that I am in the pursuit of beauty in my work.
I'm not going to stop for anyone. I do what I do, because I enjoy it.
For years all I built was big space marines and ww2 soldiers, no one ever once told me back then I should 'diversify' and 'do something else' no one ever hassled me either it's just pretty much accepted. Pretty girls though?
Well you know what, I call BULLSHIT.
If you look at my work and all you see is a sex-doll, that's your business not mine.
I never intended any of my girls to be this way. None. If you ask me about any of them, instead of taking them at face value like so many people do, you would discover that they all have intricate back stories, and all mean a great deal to me personally due to what was going on at the time in life etc.
Why Do I Ship Fang/Lightning?Zerrat asked this question over on the Fangrai February website (http://fangrai-february.tumblr.com):Why Do I Ship Fang/Lightning?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Basically, I want to read people waxing poetic about Fang/Lightning, so here is a meta question for you all to answer as you see fit. What made you ship Fang/Lightning, and what do you like best about this ship?"
This was my response:
I could, I suppose, provide a somewhat poetic answer, but I would much prefer to give a simpler one.
What drew me to shipping Fang/Lightning? The answer, I think, lies in the depth that these two characters have.
Lightning is like a marble statue left to face the tearing winds of chance and fate. She's been scarred - irrevocably so - by all that she has endured, but rather than making her ugly, her suffering has made her magnificent. The harshness she has, the strength, all of these things stem from her desperate need to protect her sister. Yet the very things that make her capable of protecting her sister are also the things that drive her sister away.

Tossing Around Another IdeaThe cottage was almost an hour’s walk from the nearest village. It was a small thing, and a rough wooden fence separated it from the dirt road in front of it and the thick, dark woods behind it.Tossing Around Another Idea1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It was a few hours after dusk, and the woods had fallen still and silent. A lone figure stopped in front of the house, eyeing it with something not unlike distaste. Then the figure was opening the gate and walking briskly toward the front door.
"You can stop right there." The voice came from the shadows, a low, predatory growl. Green eyes gleamed in the dark, and something inhuman stirred beneath tanned flesh.
The figure stopped and pushed back their hood revealing pale skin, blue eyes, and pink hair. Full lips curled in a mixture of amusement and contempt.
"How little you’ve changed, Fang. You’re still living in a hovel." The pink-haired woman chuckled. "Still worrying about the humans, even after all these centuries. You’ve gotten soft."
Fang snarled. “It

Witchhunts among artists.I was very reluctant on writing this journal, as I often just want to inspire and write uplifting things. This topic is a little less so.Witchhunts among artists.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
The word 'Witchhunt' comes from a time were some women got accused for being witches because of their beauty or their way to modern way of living (being a single mother or non-christian in times where that was absolutely outrageous). Those women would get ridiculous tests to proof their humanity from which they ultimately would die (burning on the fire stake or getting drowned in a river.) The fact that they did not survive it would proof that they are human and not a witch. We all know that there are no immortal people.. so no woman had ever survived it.
Now when we talk about Artist Witchhunts it's pretty similar, an artist would get accused of using unorthodox methods or plagiarism. No one likes plagiarism and

Parts of 'Brave' I worked onMany people have asked what parts of the film "Brave" I worked on so I figured it might be best just to post a journal entry about it. Warning... if you have not seen the film there might be some spoilers in this.Parts of 'Brave' I worked on3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My role on the film was "Master Lighting Artist" but my general role is "LIghting Technical Director". Don't let the word "director" confuse you. I am not the head of lighting, it's just a term for every Lighting Artist that means our job tends to be technical and most of the "directing" I'm doing is kicking computers to get them to do what I want. For those who do not know what "lighting" means on a 3D animated film let me give a quick description. Pixar movies are not hand drawn like traditional animation. They more closely resemble stop motion film where a physical 3 dimensional puppet is made, a set is built, real lights are put in place and then an animator moves the puppet slightly then takes a picture, moves it again and takes another picture, until you have a whole "s

"Be crazy, Be Weird. Don't be afraid of what anyone thinks. Just Do You."
Silence is the sound of the area. Silence is the sound in my mind. Silence is the weight over my heart as I find myself in the middle of a small parking lot. The only light is the coming from the side of the store, cast down on the sidewalk that I quietly walk to. There isn't even a star in the sky. I look around, give the white building wall a glance, and then look forward. Slightly curious when I see a small group of people standing in front of the entrance. I can't make out their faces, I don't know who they are. But there is one figure that I recognize. One figure that makes my heart skip a beat and lift upward into my throat.
The confusion in my mind and my heart are deeply outweigh by my curiosity. Could this really be her? She's standing with these three other people. At this point I don't even bother to know who these other people are. My eyes are only

The war against the fal’Cie continues. Desperate to secure further funding, the Eidolon Program has formed links with powerful corporations and the criminal underworld. However, even these sources of funds have proven insufficient to sustain the war effort.
As commander of one of the world’s most important Arks, Marshal Claire “Lightning” Farron has led the search for alternative sources of funding. Her alliance with Shinra has resulted in billions of additional gil for the Eidolon Program - money that has been spent repairing and improving the massive war machines under her command.
Now, with another funding crisis looming, she has authorised her finest scientists and researchers to take whatever steps they deem necessary to solve the problem.
She wishes she hadn’t.

It's been a while, so an update regarding your LMS re-print book order feels due...
If you haven't received any prior confirmation, please let this email serve as receipt of your order, as well as your payment - and once again our appreciation for the continued support. In an ideal world, we would have shipped books by now, but, due to some quality control issues, are falling a bit behind schedule.
All fixable issues which are currently being addressed overseas, and we hope for your understanding and assume that, in the long run, maximum quality dominates - in importance - over breaking speed records (at this rate, we won't be accused of the latter.

Attend life drawing classes over the summer. Blegh.
Take a sketchbook with you everywhere you go, and fill up ten of those bad boys at the coffee shop. Pfft.
Let's be honest here. We all want to become better artists, like, right frickin' now. We don't even want to have to suffer through hour-long tutorials of some pompous snooty hack bloviating over the intricate methods of drawing eyes on YouTube. We want progress, we want improvement, and we want it on our desk in ten minutes ago!
Fine, fine, I hear ya'. While these aren't going to make an instant Leonardo da Vinci out of you, these might get you up to...ehh...Basquiat caliber. Sure, I've made tutorials, but those are more about setting up Photoshop for the sake of coloring an image, and not so much building yourself artistically. Those are more technical lessons.

The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.Concept art is getting bigger and bigger. More people know what it is nowadays, it gets shown in the media more often and more books get released. This automatically results into more people wanting to become concept artists. So many artschools are now creating special courses all towards game art or concept art. (Game art can also include UI design, 3D modeling etc.).The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Yet it is a fairly new thing to most people and the idea of "becoming a concept artist" has grown rapidly over such a short time that a lot of people who are new to it seem to get a lot of misguide info. I am going to try to list this misguided info and direct you to the correct info.
(Again I would always advise you to do your own research and form your own knowledge and not just simply agree with what you read online, not from anyone, not from me. Even though i'm right .. ofcourse. *wink *wink )
