Bosch: Lampoonist or Serious Visionary?
Creator of some of the most bizarre and frightening artwork in the history of art, scholars have long debated who exactly Hieronymus Bosch was and what was the meaning and purpose of his “over the top” grotesqueries (c. 1450—1500). His most famous work is the triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights. Panel One depicts Adam & Eve in Paradise. Panel Two depicts the earthly delights: nude bodies, exotic birds, bowls of fruit. Panel Three depicts Hell’s punishments for partaking of the delights. Centuries later, scholars debated whether he was a radical religious heretic or a satir

Tutorial Tuesday: How a Comic is MadeSomeone had asked me a couple weeks ago how comics were made. I first thought they were asking how the physical book was printed and stapled and distributed. But it turns out they were asking how a book was made from concept, to writing, to the art. And I realized, unless you have been a life long comic fan, the answer isn't that obvious. So I'm going to show you step by step how a comic is made. I'll be using my comic Shadows of Oblivion as the example, however most comics are not a one man show like mine, most are team efforts, so keep that in mind as we go through this. Each stage is usually executed by one person who is an expert in his or her field, and rarely does one person do all the work.Tutorial Tuesday: How a Comic is Made2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Step 1: Plan Out The Story
This stage is usually executed by either an editorial staff at large companies, by licensors if it is a licensed property, or by the writer for small or inde
Tutorial Tuesday: PortfoliosSo you want to be a professional artist, and you have an opportunity to show off your art to an editor, or art director. But you have to put together a portfolio. First impressions count, so you have to make sure you do this right if you want to be taken seriously. And you're friend Shono is here to help!Tutorial Tuesday: Portfolios2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The key is professionalism. If you want to be taken seriously, you have to look like you take this seriously. When I first started out my art sucked... really really bad... but I conducted myself very professionally, and presented my art professionally. So even though my art was terrible, and I was not going to be hired, the editors and publishers I talked to treated me with respect and took me seriously, as they could tell I took it seriously. In fact many many times an editor, after critiquing my art and telling me why it sucks, commented about how I presented my work.. This was often followed by him giving me his card. Even thou
Tutorial Tuesday: FacesOkay lets draw some faces! Before we jump in let me just say that this tutorial is for the general guideline to draw faces. Every human being is built a little different so even though I'm going to give you a guideline on how you should draw faces, know that these are the average proportions. As in if you took every human being on the planet and averaged their proportions you'd get something like this. But individuals will have eyes that might be slightly farther apart. or noses that are longer etc. So use these as a starting point then exagerate certain features to create you're own unique looking character.Tutorial Tuesday: Faces3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also this tutorial is for those of you at the starting level, for those of you who have no idea how to draw a face properly and you've just been drawing features haphazardly and hoping for the best.
So lets start:

Tutorial Tuesday: CompositionOkay so you want to make a an amazing piece of art, and despite the fact your anatomy and perspective is great, the art just doesn't look right. Why does does your art still not look amazing? It may be the composition.Tutorial Tuesday: Composition2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who are new to art or the concept in general, composition is how you arrange or compose the subjects in your drawing. Believe it or not, regardless of how well you draw the composition can make or break the art.
There are alot of ideas and theories in composition, not all apply at all times, so I'm not going to bog you down with all the little details, and just focus on the 4 major composition concepts I use in my own art. Ready? GO!
1. NOT IN THE CENTER.
(and no horizontal or vertical lines either)
I lump these two together because its everyone's instinct. Every kid does it, and every adult who isn't told other wise does it. Everyone always wants to put the subject of the art smack dab in the middle and use all vertical
SNIPPY: evidence"Blasted mug!"SNIPPY: evidence2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I looked at it hatefully.
"This is all your fault!"
I attempted to throw the mug at the Arbitrator, to smash it, to let go of it.
Nothing of the sort was possible.
I flailed left and right. The mug did not budge. I could not let it go, no matter how hard I tried. It was as if it were glued to me with a strange static-like substance. It rolled between my fingers and from one hand to the other, but it was as if I were made of iron and the mug were a powerful rare-earth magnetic bearing coated with oil.
Why can't I let go of the mug?!
Did the Arbitrator's reconstruction of my organs have anything to do with this?
Upon giving up to prying the mug out of my hands, I turned to the Arbitrator and spoke.
I made my case calmly and clearly, pressuring various facts that my DNA couldn't possibly be on the mug and that I looked nothing like Captain and that it might as well scan my memories for evidence or something of that sort.

Tutorial Tuesday: Comfort ZoneSo I'm going to be trying something different here on Tutorial Tuesdays. I see a ton of tutorials out there on Deviant Art and Tumblr on how to draw. 99% of them are great, but i noticed something: They're all about the same things. You can find a dozen or more tutorials on how to draw faces, or hands, or bodies, or any of that stuff, and most of them are great. So I started thinking to myself, "why do I want to do tutorials about things other people have already done?" Unless I can add some insight to the process I haven't seen before, or contributing anything new, I might as well just refer people to the tutorials that have come before me. It would save me time typing these up, and you'll get the same benefit from it.Tutorial Tuesday: Comfort Zone2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So from now on Tutorial Tuesday is going to be about things I have never, or very rarely ever seen a tutorial on. Thats not to say I'll never do a tutorial again on how to draw faces or hands, but I'm not going to do it un

Issue No. 1|Archives
I was inspired to create this series by naikki while looking through her gallery of diverse artwork and reading through her journals which are focused on her favorite inspiring writers and thinkers. I felt certain there must be beautiful artwork in the form of portraits and tributes to these writers and their stories. I found most of naikki's choices of quotes to be inclusionary, redeeming and welcoming to any artist on their own path. Instead of just crediting naikki with the inspiration for this new series on depthRADIUS, I also invited her to provide a quote about Herman Hesse of her own to kick off this series.

$2.50 healthy meal for the poor or cheapIt's a well-known fact that people with lower income levels in the West generally have a poor diet. That is one of the major factors which determines their lower life expectancy, and poorer general health. The big question for me is 'why'?$2.50 healthy meal for the poor or cheap2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am a cheapskate, and often times enjoy eating cheap food. I am also a health and fitness nut, so the food I eat must be healthy. I have a genetic predisposition to being overweight, but I have around 6% body fat due to my diet and exercise routine. For reference, my deviant ID below is probably just over 10% body fat. I am also lazy, so cooking for a long time is out of the question. Turns out that all of these conditions are easily satisfied.
Let's suppose you are poor and you have a minimum wage job. I'll give you a brief outline about how to feed yourself for ~$10 for a whole day with just about the healthiest food you can eat for ANY amount of money. That's right, you can eat better than your neighbor making over a hundred grand.

So even though the final episode of the season aired on Saturday and all may seem lost, the YJ fandom is still going to try just as hard (maybe even harder!) to let Cartoon Network keep the show alive.
If you want to stay updated on what you can do to help, you can join the group YoungJustice-Season3 and follow the tumblr blog HelpSaveOurHeroes (http://helpsaveourheroes.tumblr.com/) to stay updated on other fandom projects, like weekly twitter campaigns, to help save both YJ and GL:TAS.
Also, I think the best thing you can do right now, if you're able to, is to buy merchandise! Cartoon Network is cancelling YJ and GL:TAS because it's not profiting enough off of them, so purchasing episodes and the companion comics will show the network that it can make money from these shows.
And if you want to write to Cartoon Network, please remember to keep it civil and polite.
This is no time for any of us to give up! I have faith that we can save our show, but we all need to d

I'm not sure if the story of how I became a writer is an odd or interesting one, but I've been thinking about some things lately, and I decided to share it with you all.
I was either nine or ten, and I had just began to see the use of computers. 90% of my friends had a MySpace. MSN Chat, or whatever, and even though I didn't exactly want those, I wanted to "surf the web" all on my own. So, after much begging of my parents, I finally got an hour on our crappy old desktop. I was ecstatic. You want to know what the first thing I Googled was?

Okay, so I just received a note on the Hetards admin page from :iconcaptainjellyroll: about a notorious USUK basher that has been stalking USUK fans and attacking them as of late.
Now, I myself personally know this basher because she used to attack me relentlessly for days on end. Jelly asked me to make a journal to warn others about this, so that is what I am going to do.
I used to like USUK a lot but that was only for about a year (not until I discovered my avid love for Naruto and SasuNaru (they should fucking have sex already Goddamn)). I am, and have always been (in the bottom of my heart) a SasuNaru fangirl, but back when I was about 16, I shipped USUK like I was sailing the Armada. It was my first OTP (still is) and I loved it. I faved everything USUK and eventually got my inspiration to create my soldier based story "War Effort" .

Teen Titans: Birthmark Screenshots!For some time now, I've been wanting to do a picture of Raven from the Teen Titan's episode "Birthmark". Somehow I've just not gotten to it. Well today I decided to fix that, and started looking for some screenshots from the show for research. And...ugh. Nearly every screenshot I found was worthless. Having no choice, I pulled out my Season 4 DVD of Teen Titans and decided to grab some shots myself. (I even photoshopped a few images that were camera panning shots to make one image) Since it was a process, and maybe others have had this same frustration, I decided to upload a few of my shots for everyone.
