Proof that I should never date~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Proof that I should never date1 year ago in Personal More Like This
(I posted this on my Tumblr page, as well.)
Call me a late bloomer. I'm 21 and only went on my first date a few months ago. I've always been so gung-ho about my education and starting a career that dating was just never really on my radar. So when a guy from one of my English classes asked me out, I stared at him, blinked for a few seconds, and then agreed, thinking all the while that there had to be something wrong with the dude if he wanted to ask me out. I had, after all, just finished talking about why I liked to paint John Keats' death mask.
But despite my trepidation, I went out with him anyway. It was okay. He was nice enough. But I couldn't shake the feeling that there was something off about this guy—aside from the fact that he incessantly texted me poetry, wh
Exploring Art 30: Theft and value of an artistHey guys. I've written about copyright law in the past, but there are some things I just.. never thought to mention. However now that Sarah and I are working together, we're dealing with several types of art theft at once. Everything from the recast dolls situation (where someone buys your doll, makes casts of it, then sells it to the public. Yes this is illegal, more on that later), to someone submitting my art to a game company as their own for a job. In many cases we are dealing with ignorance, so I thought I would clarify a few things.Exploring Art 30: Theft and value of an artist11 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This is going to take a while.
The Recast Situation
There is a new trend in the ball jointed doll industry, where people are taking dolls and sending them to 'professional recasters'. These people then make a mold of someone's doll, and recast it. They then proceed to sell the doll to their customers. The artist receives no compensation for this, nor is allowed to even have a say in anything from the quality of the resin, to the
AbuseI'm sorry, I need to write this.Abuse6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I got a letter, from a young person who I will not identify (and will try to keep this vague for them). But they wrote me asking if they were wrong for the way they feel. They are being abused at home, and their family member is being abused as well. They're scared to do anything, and it's a complicated reason why they're scared.
I want to say this out here, because this isn't the first time I've heard things like this nor will it be the last. I want to say it publicly for those that are too scared to reach out or just don't realize that they deserve better.
It's scary, when you're young and frightened and your family is being hurt but you don't have a way to fix it and you're not sure if you even should. It's beyond scary. It's terrifying. You feel so alone and lost, and you don't know where to turn. I'm going to say this once, I'm going to say it a thousand times. You are not alone. There are people who understand. And you deserve better

Kyo ProjectAs some of you may know, Kyo has fallen ill (vocal cord polyps and severe laryngitis) and the NA tour has been cancelled, the band's resumption of activities unknown at this point in time.Kyo Project2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Due to this news, we have started a 1000 crane project. Anyone who wants to be involved, simply fold your cranes and think of Kyo as you fold them, wish for his wellbeing and his recovery. Put your good will into them. Once you are done with your cranes, please post a reply here (or Note me) with how many you have folded and it will be added to the running tally.
EDIT: WE HAVE REACHED OUR GOAL FOR 1000 CRANES.
We can see if we can reach 2000 for a second wish for the band if we want. However, since I've folded over 400 of these in 6 days myself, I'm done for the time being. My fingers are all swollen, lol.
EDIT: We have reached 2038 cranes. Good job everyone! It's amazing to see the support here.
10 Myths About IntrovertsI came across this list recently and felt like sharing it. I am an introvert, myself. I found myself completely agreeing with all of these things !!10 Myths About Introverts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Myth #1 Introverts don't like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don't talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won't shut up for days.
Myth #2 Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don't interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don't worry about being polite.
Myth #3 Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don't see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure t

Comic Composition GeekoutSPECIAL GUEST STAR (against his knowledge) IS :iconandrew-ross-maclean:Comic Composition Geekout1 year ago in Personal More Like This
You guys know when I get really excited about art geekery, I JUST CAN'T KEEP IT IN. I also feel like composition is a really hard thing to learn, and all you can really do is try to learn "what is good" in composition, and then try to find examples until you can recognize it. In addition, composition for comics is extra hard because you have to worry about the overall flow of the page as well as the composition of each individual panel.
So I was doing my spring cleaning of my message center and came on some new comic pages he uploaded, all of which are awesome, but take a particular look at this one:
This page is AMAZING. I started watching this guy for his slick style and stayed for his crazy composition skills, and this page makes a particularly good example because his work is so clean and straight-forward, there's not a lot of noodling to distract from the motion lines.

Modeling tipsI have been receiving several messages asking me for modeling tips, and I can't honestly spend my time answering to each one of those messages, even though I sometimes feel identified with the ones who send me those, I just don't have enough time, and most times I can't even read the messages I receive unless they seem to be job offerings or interesting proposals. I love seeing new messages in my inbox, even if I don't answer or even read them, just looking at those in general makes me feel supported, thanks. But the thing here is (sorry, I am not a concise person and in my personal profiles I am gonna be as long as I wish to be) that I am making my personal tips to give my honest opinion of what is best to start into alternative modeling. This way I can give this information to more people than I could give otherwise, and since this message is made comfortably and with enough time, it will probably be a lot better advice than it would be if I am just trying to answer in two minutes aModeling tips2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Alice X. Z. - Living Rainbow Taking FlightThe vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable. The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.Alice X. Z. - Living Rainbow Taking Flight2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

Reddened skiesThe skies are crying.Reddened skies2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Why? You may ask.
They are full of anguish.
Why are the skies red? You may ask.
Because they're full of blood that's been shed.
It's sad and alone. Full of nothing but clouds.
Sad and sulking.
Why are they clouds heavy and grey?
Because they're full of the hate and anguish. The lonely sorrow.
Why are the clouds crying?
Because they're spilling their veins. Shedding their blood and sorrow. Crying to the world.
To stop the hate.
To stop the sorrow.
But unfortunately there is:
But then it makes me realize.
This is what I feel in the depths of my soul.

Resurrection CH 18Lexa sat there disgusted of Tamashī's transformation it was something she'd never seen before. The sight of him make her paralyzed with fear. She moved her head to see how everyone else was doing and saw that Ochita and Satsugai had transformed as well they weren't as terrifying as Tamashī but they were equally dangerous. Lexa saw her friends in danger Cati was limping and fighting of Ochita's claws while Peky lay on the ground with a broken legs, unable to assist Cati. Lexa turned her head once more and saw Kitty fighting for her life as Satsgai literally bit a chunk of her neck off while Merl jumped on Satsugai's back and tried to strangle him but Satsugai on perposly fell on hiss back with all his weight to make Merl a cusion to fall on and to crush her with his body making her let go. Lexa turned her attention to the battle infront of her Tamashī, Mel, and Toni fighting to the death.

Really irritated by part of the community here :/Okay, it's been few years since I was ranting on DA but the time has come. Everyone has a pet peeve and mine is being told that "this looks like". I very often state that I use no refs for the faces and if I did, and certainly if it was somebody famous (as it would be very obvious, right?), I would write it in the comment. But no. Still many people assume it just has to be a portrait of someone, often someone I'm not even familiar with, just because this is their first impression. And yes, I get it they (mostly) don't mean anything bad. But to me, and you can call it overreacting, it feels like I'm being accused of art theft every single time it happens. Even if I know this is ridiculous (like when people accuse me of stealing my own art from myself, not checking their sources beforehand and, believe me, it happens quite often).Really irritated by part of the community here :/2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I don't know if you guys are still into your resolutions - but I'm still trying to achieve mine . Here's just a few of mine (I made like 25 so I keep myself productive. If I finish 3 I'd be happy ).
1. Read 5+ books this year. When I was younger, I used to read 30+ books a year. It's a shame I don't have that kind of time anymore, so I'm shooting for a mere 5 . (1/5 so far)
2. Do something creative every day. Photography/painting/graphic design work. - Still working on this one, but it's improved. I've gotten it to about 4/7 days a week now .
3. Stop drinking soda. - Haven't gotten around to this one yet since I started working nights on a regular basis for the past month+

Exploring Art 44: BrainstormSo. I have the flu. The great thing about being sick is that you're stuck in place for so long, that your brain kind of roams like crazy. If you're not used to that, well it can be a really surreal experience. But the way my thoughts have been jumping all over the place put me in the mind of a question someone asked me a while back.Exploring Art 44: Brainstorm8 months ago in Personal More Like This
"How do you get your ideas". That's usually followed by talk of being in a rut, stumped, not really sure what think of, etc. I spent the past week giving ideas to people (and if I didn't get to your question in a comment, they get lost SUPER easy as I have 717 if them to reply to right now. So message me on a note) and it confused my friend. She watched me go 'one sec need to post some ideas' and then type for a few minutes before bouncing over to go and help her with her project. It was a foreign concept to her, that ideas are a dime a dozen, and that to me is not a state we should be in as artists. Do you guys remember my Ideas painting? I posted it after
