About this Nicolas Cage situationEdit: I've just woken up to a night's worth of replies to this journal and people have made a great point about the fact that I could put these deviations in storage until the situation has ended, which I just have. If you are new to the conversation and wonder what kind of deviation we're talking about, they are the same kind of montages seen on that blog: http://niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com/About this Nicolas Cage situation4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
As you can easily guess from the stats on my profile, I don't post very often. I try to, because it's important to use the website I help build. So when last year, for fun, I made these montages I thought it might make people I'm in touch with on dA laugh, or at least smile at the absurdity of them. And some did. When I submitted them, fourteenthstar and her team saw that they could be controversial and they were discussed during a meeting with her team. I had submitted the images with default settings, so they made me disable prints immediately. That made total sense to me, I felt stupid f

InsightAfter the polemic arround my 14th tutorial, I must confess it's quite hard to hold my hindsight, to be humble. I am not as indifferent as I thought.Insight3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think I can add some words to the previous journal entry :
TUTORIAL : I did tutorials in the objective to share something about Art, about Creativity, about Step by Step...
Build tutorial is a complexe exercice because mostly technique/approach are intuitive. You can't learn the intuitivity.
I do it for free, and this time the cost seems very expensive for me
TRACING : Before the last tutorial, I didn't know this word " TRACING ". It evokes a cold exercice.
The misunderstanding is hard to accept. I wonder if you really read the tutorial. What I call " roughing " is the part where, if I need (this is not automatic), I add a layer with a photoreference to make a sketch/rough of the composition, mood, story... This layer is deleted once the painting start, as point out in the tutorial. This moment is indepedant of the paint

I'm honestly posting this journal to get my previous one off my front page. The more I think about it, the angrier I get, and unlike plenty of my fellow fans, getting mad when I think about Korra is definitely NOT what I want. I want to be excited and inspired. Please feel free to keep commenting on it and stuff, and I will try to get around to answering all your insightful comments, but for right now, my mantra is "I cannot change people" and I need a little distance. For the record- nothing bad has happened, everything is fine, I'm just trying to get the sour taste out of my mouth and clear up some of my bad juju so I can keep making fun fanarts!
SO! On a WAY MORE FUN note!
Check out this amazing article from Muddy Colors regular Greg Manchess-
Negativity in fandom, and the dreaded 'thoughI was talking with a friend about how some fandoms are super fun to be a part of. And some...not so much. I regret to say, as much as I love Korra, it's not a particularly fun fandom for me. Neither was Avatar. (They're FAR from the only fandoms that suffer from the problems I'm going to be "talking" (word-vomiting) about, but they're the ones I've had the most experience with.)Negativity in fandom, and the dreaded 'though3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Fandom has become a dirty word. I have literally been accused of participating in fandom. Wait, accused of what? For me, the whole idea of "fandom" can be summed up in one word: excitement. Man, I love getting excited about shit. And I LOVE talking to other people who are excited about shit! And then our excitement spirals around each other's and then we make awesome creations with that extreme excitement. EXCITEMENT-BENDING! This is what happens EVERY time I post a fanart, and I c
You know what annoys me? XDThe whole, "Why are you arguing? The characters are fake!"You know what annoys me? XD3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now hear me out, why this annoys me is because myself and others don't argue over the fake characters, we argue for the REAL people who have been in these situations.
There's a webcomic I read, in which the main characters are drugies, drug dealers, and just all together bad people. But you love them, because they're the main focuse. It's easy to love a mistfit, right?
But in this comic one of the main guys impregnates his girlfriend, who isn't a horrible person, but she is a little bitchy. They were going to get an abortion, but she decides she can't do it. Any-hoo, the guy's mom kinda treats the chick like dirt, and in the comment section plenty of people leave comments like, "Well it serves her right for being a slut!" or "Well she shouldn't have forced him into this!"
As if it's a one person effort to get pregnate.
All because the fans deam her as a bitch.
Now, the guy, he isn't a great guy.
But people love him because he's

About the Username Change and the Imeji CheinjiI never believed that name change would exist due to many valid reasons, but yet, they made it. Honestly, I've been wanting to change my name since long time. I'm in no ties or any desire with "Pearl" in any way which I named it when I was quite young. Also that name makes me sick sometimes- so a new name change is going to be a great, refreshing start.About the Username Change and the Imeji Cheinji3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, yes I do plan to change name yet my icon will remain not changed to keep people to recognize me. And here I want to write a journal about being really careful, be smart and think twice if we decide to change name: to not cause that kind of trend where "Oh I got bored with that name, lemme change onto another" and making a'la Japan's trend of changes known as imeji cheinji.
Firstly, try to imagine, if there is artist (or active watcher, popular artist, active friend or even troller which you dislike etc.) which you admire is known under Crystallox2* (and you probably will notice how many people also call that person as "Crys"

I wrote to her to thank her for the statement, and for considering the perspective of those who had found issue with the character.Like her, I am caring for a mentally disabled family member, and I told her my personal experience with how ableism has affected their life, and how they were bothered by the portrayal. I also told her how I was introduced to the issue via my mentally disabled friends, whose posts I reblogged on the subject.)
I also linked her to just a sampling of the harassment and death threats I have recieved from people who seem to think I'm personally responsible for the changes. I think she should know what sort of fans she was pressured into pandering to.

Apparel Collection: Deviant BARKFrom sheepdogs to wolves to coyotes, dogs are inspirational in their energy and passion for nature and all life has to offer. Join us in appreciation of our furry canine friends with this cuddly deviant BARK tee!Apparel Collection: Deviant BARK3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We love creatures of all shapes and sizes. I grew up with dogs and have always loved them as friends and adventure buddies. This concept started out as sketches in my black book, and I worked out many styles.
From foxes to long cats to wolves to simple barking dogs, I was drawing them all in marker, ball-point pen, and pencil. I liked that each of them had a different feeling that was really accentuated by the choice of drawing tool.
During this process, I went to a drawing party, and there was a fun little canine there named Dexter. I considered him for the piece, along with some other dog friends of the same breed. Using brush pens, china crayons, and thick markers, I ended up with a multi-media piece that I think truly captures this little guy’s atti

Whatever this movie may lack in story or direction, it makes up for it in the wardrobe department. So here's some things to keep in mind if you have main characters, or just want some ideas of how to bring out your characters qualities or manipulate your audience. XD
Keep in mind, you don't have to actually use your character's entire color pallet in their clothes, This is just a beautiful example of how they utilized the many layers of clothes to actually layer all of Neeson's colors around his face, creating a great balance to his image and drawing the viewer in.

Dracula BeginsDracula Begins10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Halloween fast approaches…
…and with it, the latest re–make, this time an “origins” story, of the “Dracula” legend (“Dracula Untold”, October). For some magical or medical reason Dracula so stimulates and fascinates our psyches that it has survived and thrived since publication in 1897. Rather than present a synopsis of the original novel’s narrative for the few of you that haven’t read it or seen at least one of its movie versions, what is offered here is a rough charting of the evolution of this story.

"A plan was flying from tokyo to LA. Suddenly one of the engines goes down, and the plane crashes on a deserted island with only three survivors: an american, a japanese, and a freanch. The american(being an american) started giving orders. He tells the Japanese: "You, goes get some supplies!" and the Japanese runs away. The French: "You. goes build a cabin in the woods!" The French guy walks away "As for myself ....i'll start a fire." After a while, the american joins the french and after two weeks, they have a beautiful cabin in the woods. But the Japanese still hasn't come back. Wondering what could had happened to him, the French and the American decides to go out to look for him. After two days the japanese suddenly jumps out from a bush and yells: "SUPPLISE!!!"
there were tons of funny jokes but this one made me laugh the most XD

I'm doing Cover # 3 for the official Adventure Time comics! Words can't describe how excited and flattered I am to have this opportunity! When I was first offered the job, I had to take a break from my desk to DANCE. Working on official comics for one of my favorite cartoons has always been a dream of mine. I'm thrilled to be working alongside with webcomic royalty like Ryan North and Emily Carrol, and the other amazingly talented creators on board. <3
Here's a little teaser! I'm told the final colors for this cover may be tweaked slightly in the final. Shannon Watters (editor of Boom! comics) requested a more girl-centric cover, so as you can guess I really had a field day with it.
I may be doing more work for the comics in the future, but I'm not sure I can comment on that just yet. Stay tuned, an

I've seen people troubled by not having constant style, people thinking their style is not original enough, people making a bold line between their two styles, people trying to get rid of one style...
My humble opinion on this is that you should stop wasting your energy on torturing yourself and just draw. Draw whatever you feel like.
Unless you're being paid for certain style but that's not what I want to talk about now.
What I want to talk about are all those personal pictures you do for self-improvement or supposedly for fun. "Supposedly" because if your main purpose is "fun" I don't get why you should worry yourself with "omg is this style all right what will my watchers say?"
Well, your watchers will get pretty bored if all in your gallery look the same. And also, there's not much space for improvement. Talking from my own experience, I was totally charm

7 TIPS FOR THE 21-YEAR-OLD ME by Bobby Chiu
When I was a student in college working on my skills as a character designer, I’d had periods where I would sit at my desk working as hard as I could but having little to show for my efforts at the end of the day. I remember sitting there surrounded by blank pieces of paper, trying to come up with an amazing style that nobody had ever seen before. I would do one drawing and not be satisfied, so I would lay a new piece of paper over it, re-draw it with slight changes to features here and there. This would still not be good enough so I would put another piece of paper over my revision, make more minor adjustments trying to perfect this new style I was searching for.
I did this for weeks on end, tweaking and polishing over and over, working hard every day. But in the end, did I come up with a brand new style, something amazing that
