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

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?”

Converting Sims2 and Sims3 to MMD - A rough guide.Here's short instructions on how I figured out to do this today. I knew how to get the textures but had no idea how to get the mesh, so yh.Converting Sims2 and Sims3 to MMD - A rough guide.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
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"

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

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

I'd just like to mention publicly, that I, as well as artists in general, are not art vending machines.
You don't type suggestions in, and then have a slot where artwork comes out for free .
Important to Note: I am not addressing any individual in particular. If you think this is about *you* specifically ( whoever you are)- don't. This about the private notes I get, with alarming volume, where people feel they can simply request artwork from me for free. I get a *lot* of these. Which prompted me to post something about it. I usually just ignore them, or, if I feel particularly polite that day, I send them a note back saying I don't do requests.
But they never stop o_O. And it's not that I mind suggestions in comments under artwork, such as: "Oh, I hope one day you will paint _________." or, "

Three months on Deviantart now. Still no death threats or helpful suicide methods offered here, as there is in my hometown (I-/) Youtube. I miss home and do not understand the community and their "compliments." Through thorough searching the worst attitudes I have seen here are ignorance and indifference! And where in the hell is That One Guy Who Likes Hitler?! I thought EVERYWHERE had one. Note to self: Look up Nazi propaganda to try and find him.
Some good has happened. After my ship, The Firefox, crash landed here three months ago I have received a welcome from those I knew resided on this site who, in their broken English, have introduced me to the other natives. Seems more and more each day crash here and are quickly absorbed by the tides. They address me by my new name, similar to my old; Kn1ghtyKn1ght. Quite witty if I do say so myself

How To Sell Your Original PaintingsHow To Sell Your Original PaintingsHow To Sell Your Original Paintings2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In this article I will be discussing how to sell your original paintings. If your a artist you know how intimidating this can be when you've decided to venture into sales. It may even leave you with doubts about your own work, lower your confidence as a artist, and a bit fearful. Well have no fear! I have some tips from personal experience, as well as online references and advice from fellow artists that will help with your sales.
The First Step
Before we get into 'the meat' of things your very first step is Believe in yourself. Be confident about the accomplishments you've made. If your contemplating selling anything then you have to know you're good at what you do. Let that be your mantra as an artist. Understand that how you've acquired your skills, what you choose to paint, what your art looks like, and how
