A TRIBUTE TO REALISMA TRIBUTE TO REALISM2 years ago in Personal More Like This
-Why don't you just take a photo and a bunch of other stupid yet justified questions-
After years of being bothered by the same question , I have finally decided to write down my feelings and thoughts about this issue. And I think the timing is perfect considering I've somehow reached a stage of finding satisfaction in my own work; which will hopefully result in this journal being informative, interesting, maybe even educational, but above all stop people from being prejudice. If I had written it earlier it probably would have resulted in ranting and raging, at least to some degree.
I hope you will enjoy this read, but unless you think you can relate or learn more about some things, stop reading because this is going to be LONG
Let me start by asking you - what about your own work makes you feel like an artist? What makes any of us 'artists'? Many people imagine artists to be somewhat like mad scientists, but the
Introduction about making handmade booksINTRODUCTION ABOUT BASIC TOOLS TO MAKE HANDMADE BOOKSIntroduction about making handmade books2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Today I'd like to share with you some basic tips if you're interested in making handmade books. I've learned how to do that a few terms ago, at the university. As an art restoring adept I've been through the old, traditional ways of making books and added some modern touches to simplify that. I'm going non-professional so far, without expensive equipment, so if you'd like to give books a try you don't have to invest that much
The first and obvious thing that's needed for our book is paper. At that stage you have to decide what kind of book you'd like to make - you need lined or squared paper for notebooks, journals, cookbooks and basically everything that's meant to write in. Sketchbooks and scrapbooks require nice smooth plain paper and photo albums work best with thick and durable paper. Of course those are basics, you can use decorated paper or one suitable for

20 Years of Spider-Man ImprovementHey Friends--20 Years of Spider-Man Improvement3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I moved recently and things have been busy, so I won't be able to get a new comic up this week. I'm working hard on it right now though-- it's the biggest one so far-- the title of the essay is going to be: "Hug the Elephant." Please stay tuned!
In the meantime, I wanted to show you something special. I was digging through old sketchbooks while packing for the move and I found these little gems-- drawings of Spider-Man I made from age 6 onward. I've been drawing Spider-Man periodically for about 20 years!
Here's my progress!
Seeing improvement is fun, isn't it? Today I decided to draw another entry to the spiderman series:
I want to encourage you guys to revisit your work every month or so. If you are consistently making things, you'll be able to see a progression in your work, which helps you keep going.
See you next week!

A rantI've noticed this on the internet for a while, but only in the past 3 years or so has it really exploded.A rant2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Why do people online feel the need to be "marginalized" or "oppressed"? There's this overwhelming current of "I'm special, I'm different than the rest, pay attention to me." This is present in fandoms, blogging, and social media in general. It's like being disadvantaged has suddenly become a thing that people want. It makes no sense to me.
For example, "bronies". Don't get me wrong, I think MLP is great, and I'm a pretty big fan. But I don't call myself a "brony". I don't wrap my identity up in the fact that I watch a cute show. I'm not "breaking societal norms" or "being oppressed by others" because I watch a damn show. It doesn't define me. I've seen bronies online talk about "coming out" to their family and friends about being a brony, and equating it to the struggles of LGBT people's "coming out". This is extremely offensive, whiny, and reeks of privilege.

From Myth And Legend
“The wind within the trees was a whisper that spoke our tongue, and the stars in the sky shone on the gods of our heavens, alight and alive. What is science against alchemy, we asked them, what is coincidence against prophecy? Kings and beggars stand equal as fates unfold and worlds awake, as heroes rise and deities fall… among nymphs and mermaids, against harpies and sorceries, we must stand as one. Will you brave the lands of myth and legend with us?”

I just got "SimPE" the sims2 package editor.
Then I opened the ".package" file downloaded from a sims2 site.
------Getting the 3D body---------
To extract the 3d body you need to use a sim2 package with a mesh file in it.
Click on the list of files that says GMDC, and on the lower left check all the parts in that box that says "Generic Rcol Editor"
Click on preview to see a small image of what it looks like.
Then click "Export" and use DirectX Exporter. Then import the x file into PMDeditor. I think you need to scale it "x10" to see it, not sure though. But yeah. Then you just need to assign the materials.
Open the package containing the textures you want.
Scroll down on the left and select "Texture Image"

Vance's storyYea I made a short background story of my OC VanceVance's story4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thanks to CookieZoela, she fixed my awful grammar ;u;
Even at the age of 9 Vance didn't really have an interest in becoming a Pokémon trainer as a matter of fact he didn't even quite like Pokémon as he only cared about playing outside like a typical kid.
One day though Vance asked his dad if he wanted to have a trip, just him, his mom and his dad without bringing their Pokémon with them because he thought that his dad, being a Pokémon ranger and his mom a Pokémon breeder, spent too much of their time with them instead of being with him.
Vance did have a point though for his dad owned a very loyal young treecko, and it refused leave his dad's side, that alone showed how his dad put too much of his passion and interest in his Pokémon. They even had a hard time leaving his father's treecko behind but eventually his dad managed to ask treecko to patiently wait for him as they would only be gone just f
Digital painting tips for beginners.I'm not the best person to give advice about art, once I do not consider myself an artist (yes, it's true lol). But I've always been very curious and interested with the theme "digital painting", and I spent (and still spend) hours and hours watching videos 2 hours long on Youtube lol livestreams, etc.. I think I'm the only person who has the patience for it, hahahaha, but it was what helped me to evolve and learn all the techniques I know now to perform my work. I asked the help of many artists that I admire, and some even helped me, but most of them do not care how much you want to learn. Thinking about it, I decided to make this journal to pass them what little I know, and I hope that this is helpful for someone. Are simple tips and a little obvious, but unknown for some people who just started in this world full of possibilities. I only ask, first of all, for you dont give up. The difficulties were made to be overcome.Digital painting tips for beginners.2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

There’s something about the brilliant colors of the dying leaves of autumn that reflects the wonders and the sorrows of life. It’s as if by waking up each morning into this beautiful world of natural colors, we are being given our bittersweet reward for surviving another year on the planet. We are regaled with a brief seasonal ceremony of the turning of the leaves, nature’s gift for our eyes as a promise she will soon return after her yearly rest. And then it’s time to let winter’s grey pallor unfold over us in blankets of dark cold rain and bright brisk snows; we sleep, the autumn’s leaves having promised

Some rather prudish individuals have complained that it looks a mite dubious, while the owner of Dirty Bird has insisted that people are seeing what they want to see, and not what was intended.
It is claimed that the logo is simply the lower case initials of the company placed back to back in order to form the neck and wings of a cockerel.
Seeing one of Dirty Bird’s recent promotional images, however; one might be given cause to doubt their professed innocence.
And people ask why I like living on this spiteful little island
