another Journal SkinHere's my new journal skin.
I made a little animation of Saunders for it
In case you're wondering what he's playing; it's Slipstream by Jethro Tull.
The animation isn't perfect, but it was really hard to animate him playing that particular song on guitar... I know the song, and can play it easily on guitar, but still, animating it proved to be a pain
I hope you guys like my new journal skin
In case you feel like wasting lots of money (FULL)Status: FULLIn case you feel like wasting lots of money (FULL)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm still going through those requests, but I'm probably only going to pick like one more at this point. Meanwhile, I'm going to open paypal commissions! except more like horrendously expensive bribes
50x50 blinking/smiling pixel icons will be $12 each. More samples coming soon~
Medium-sized pixels will be $25 each. +$1 for blinking.
"WHAT!?" you yelled, jumping about a foot into the air.
"That's right," I replied grimly. "You're better off buying the pixel icons, those are only twelve each."
"B-but that's expensive as well!" you cried, tears starting in your eyes, now regretting ever having entered this miserable conversation.
"That's right," I replied grimly. "You're better off buying a donut. Or maybe a dozen. Surely, it would be worthier use of your money."
But I really do pour my heart and soul into these pixels, and the larger ones especially can take more than a day!! to do, which is ha
My thoughts on anime stuffOkay, so there's this really weird thing that I've noticed about being an artist that always strikes me as odd. About 95% of the time when I meet people and tell them I'm studying to be an illustrator, the first question I get asked is not "what are you wanting to do with that?" (which is pretty common though) but instead it's usually "Do you like anime?" :/ Which, that strikes me as odd. I mean, I know some people you can just look at and tell that they're "anime people" (you know the kind) but I've never really considered myself to be one of those people. >_My thoughts on anime stuff3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Soon to be Homeless + Total Update 4. 3 DAYS LEFT!Edit: So it looks like my updated total was off. So I need $150 and it's three days left. Before we have to move from our apartment. We have a place to go for a week, but other than other... nothing... *sighs*Soon to be Homeless + Total Update 4. 3 DAYS LEFT!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So as you know, I will be homeless soon. 3 days until my mother and I will be on the streets. We are a bit disappointed as we are only $150 away from our goal. This would keep us from being homeless.
I know you are all tired of hearing about it but I'm scared. Honestly, not for myself, but for my mother. She is all I have left of real close family. If she were to be homeless then she would lose her medical, and that would be death for her.... She has to take insulin shots six times a day. We wouldn't be able to afford one a day let alone six. I'm just scared of all this. I'm sorry that I keep bringing it up. I have noticed a lot of you getting sick of it, and angry, I apologize. But it is life and death...
So if you c

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die."
—Roy Batty, BLADERUNNER
Every time we open our eyes in the morning as each new day breaks, two worlds flow forth, each penetrating into the other, as the celestial portal gate separating them is once again raised. One’s inner world, of mind and being, pierces the outer world of light and raw data, seeking to hunt and gather mental sustenance. The outer world floods into our minds like a data tsunami, seeking to reconfigure the secret landscape of last night’s perfectly crafted dream state. Both worlds do battle to rearrange and make sense of the other. It is the yin and yang, by which we create and recreate the world – and the world invades and recreates each one of

NO YOURE A REINDEER
so a fat man in a suit rides you
in the freezing cold
you'll be named...tinsel
am i the reindeer that noone cares about
but everyone at the north pole loves you
and you have a story
where all you want to do is fly, and you cant
and an elf trains you
and soon you have to challenge a deer
do i win against the deer
and it's an amazing, emotional movie
YES SO IM BETTER THAN RUDOLPH
you're the first female reindeer on the team
and im fat
no you're no
you're a slender, normal female reindeer
do they have to drag me along cause i cant fly very well
with a jingle bell around her neck
...you learn to fly
and at the end fly finally with santa, and it's an uplifting underdog moment
oh i thought you meant
fly an airplane
i try to write an awesome christmas story
When Being Human Just Isn't Enough:icontechgnotic:When Being Human Just Isn't Enough4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The allure of Anthro Art is obvious to anyone who ever “owned” and loved a pet. (Only those who have never loved and shared lives with a pet speak of pet “ownership”!) Once a bond has been formed between a human and an animal the rigid distinctions between what is human and what is animal begin to fracture.
The definition of “being” becomes suddenly far more expansive. And soon the bonded human begins feeling spiritual affinities with the “animal” that are undeniably powerful and as “real” as any felt with other humans. The desire to leave all the lies and hypocrisies of human society behind and join in with a simpler and somehow more “honest” society of different beings in nature can become palpable and intense. “The grass is always greener…” and, oh!, to scamper across it on four liberating paws!

BrushesThis is somehow a continuation of the previous journal with a listing of tutorials I use.Brushes4 years ago in Personal More Like This
People ask me about what brushes do I use even more often than about me making tutorials. Unfortunately here I might help only Photoshop users as I've never used SAI or GIMP and my Corel Painter worked so unbelievably slow on my machine that recently I've simply uninstalled it.
To be honest, the brush I use most often is a simple round brush with tablet pressure controlling the opacity.
With that baby I paint almost everything starting from under-painting and ending on medium details. Yet, there are all sorts of different brushes I use for other things - hair, texturing, backgrounds, foliage and so on. Here are a few sets I have installed. I do not use every single brush from them and I've deleted most of them right after installation... sometimes leaving as much as 1-5 brushes from a set of 30. You can get rid of unwanted brushes by either using the preset manager in the brush menu panel or by cl
