Same Face SyndromeExample:Same Face Syndrome4 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's not a good thing when your characters essentially look like the same person just cosplaying others, y'know? When you have only a few different ways of drawing a face shape, eyes, nose, etc, it's not good ._.
It can be pretty hard to break the habit, expanding your style though. I think I used to struggle with it too myself :\ Though nowadays I like to think I've gotten better '_';; I try pretty hard to draw people with their own unique face.
Anyway, I've seen a LOT of artists, lot of popular ones, who suffer from this and it disappoints me, especially when they've got talent D8 Most of the perpetrators tend to be anime artists, though I've definitely seen anime styles where this isn't the case. Also "same face syndrome" can actually work for certain styles, especially if it's intentional.. Just, I dunno. I think it'll be better for your art in the long run if you're able to make your characters distinguished without ha
Great Women of History 1 - HypatiaI was reading through my brother's high school history textbook today, when a thought struck me: I've thumbed through 30 pages, and I haven't seen a SINGLE woman's name. Over 50 percent of the population is female...so why the paucity of historical figures?Great Women of History 1 - Hypatia4 years ago in Personal More Like This
And thus I decided to start this mini-journal series, because there were plenty of amazing, influential women in the past. We just don't talk about them much.

Hypatia, The Last Librarian of Alexandria
Imagine a library - the greatest anywhere on the whole surface of the Earth, charged with collecting all of mankind's knowledge. Imagine halls filled floor-to-ceiling with countless texts, perfumed with the stories and discoveries of people from the farthest corners of the globe. Such a library was founded some 300 years before the birth of Christ; it was part of the Museum of Alexandria, a vast research institute in modern day Egypt, which also inclu

Tutorials and Commissions!Hey guys! This Friday I will NOT be open for new commissions. I am a couple days behind and I need to be conservative and catch up before it gets ahead of me. I'm sorry to those of you who I spoke to in my stream about getting a commission, but I promise to open again next week on Friday!Tutorials and Commissions!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of people have been asking me about making a tutorial or giving art advice lately. I want to remind everyone I do have a tumblr account on which I post small walk-throughs of my art! I JUST posted one today going into a little detail about a new technique I've been messing with, so it might be fun to look through those if you were looking for any kind of art instructions from me.
Also, in my profile I have a link to my friend DimeSpin's list of amazing art resources. She has vetted every single one, I urge you to take a look and explore these options!

Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"

I have two possibilities of getting jobs. With one place I go tomorrow for an interview. And with another place, they are going to call sometime this week about an interview. So things are starting to look up.
As for Stars and Stripes Forever, I'm being iffy about things, as always. But stuff's coming along well, can't complain. I have been reading about Tennessee and Wisconsin a lot. Mainly on account I'm doing TN's profile next, and I'm possibly gonna be working on Wisconsin's at the same time. Lol let's see where that gets me.
Also, today I was thinking about life in general and talking about where my life is going. Well I was talking with my older brother about stuff like this. I told him that I'm comfortable where I am, but at the same time not so comfortable. I finally told him that the only thing I really wanna do with my life, is just road trip America. That is all. Like that is seriously the only thing on my bucket list. Alo
Another yearNot much can be said about 2011, it was a sort of lukewarm year for me. I started to use my neglected tumblr, thinking that I wouldn't become addicted...and I did. I have met some amazing people both on that site, and here on DA. Some of those people that I have met this year includes, but not limited to: yesthisismak, TopazRaven, GryGirl8, DrDevone, chibi098, Ember4501, AwesomeLurker, BrochachoNacho, Gryffgirl, Antiloqax, Angeliserrare, boscaresque, brittykittycoco, nannerpenn, and so many more amazing people.

5 Things About Me:
1.) I am a native of Worcester, but I only lived there for the first 3 years of my life. Now I'm in a town that is practically Worcester ha ha. I want to move to Boston when I'm older though.
2.) One of my cousins, who is a history buff like me, lives in London. Her wedding theme was "Old England meets New England" which was adorable owo.
That moment when I try to be consistentGot a couple of books on Early Colonial America and daily life. It's fun reading it, because our eating habits have changed greatly from them. Our day to day activities have changed greatly too. It's really getting me in the mindset of how life was back then. Which is sort of fueling me when it comes to scripting out pages for Sasf. I also got a book on Puritans in New England, and how they lived differently from everyone else. They are...a very odd bunch. Or maybe it's just me.That moment when I try to be consistent4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, I have come to the conclusion that I would never wanna live back in that day. Yeah I'm sure the work would put me in shape and all...but I love my time too much XD
Hope school and things like that is going well for you guys. Wish you good luck in your endeavors

Guys. Guys. Guys I'm sorry, I just say J. Edgar.AND NOW I CAN'T! SO MUCH LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Guys. Guys. Guys I'm sorry, I just say J. Edgar.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
And, yeah, it was pretty much complete speculation but I sincerely hope that he was a homosexual and was in love with Cylde Tolson because It makes him more understandable and likable... I mean no one really wants to like J. Edgar Hoover... but I think if he was gay it would bring a little love to his life
And... so I'm a little be guilty feeling about shipping it but.... It was the most adorable thing and I don't really know much about Mr. Hoover or Mr. Tolson, but I can say for certain is that they are in a One hundred percent bromance and they did love each other, even if not sexually.
Over all, I think I liked the movie so much because of the touching emotional parts, but other people who are in it more for the history will be a bit disappointed of the way the non personal life portions were handled.
anyway, If you were a Daffodil J.Edger Hoover, I think you should be a proud one <3

I still want to take a day and go back up to Mt. Mitchell and hike around more for you Mary, since you really seemed to love those pictures I got of it during winter.

I might resume the Bionicle project during the summer. As of now it will remain on hiatus.
I do think you'll see a 2011-2012 sketch dump though (as I'm always sketching) and you'll probably see a Toa-Mata Wallpaper soon. Unfortunately, you likely wont see any long term rendered and polished work for a while due to focus being placed on my professional site.
What I plan to do for bionicle is a portrayal of Makuta and Matanui as mythological iconography, such as
and a redesign of a Bohrok, TakaNuva and a Rahkshi.
This, however, is a reduction of what i originally planned to do.
I obviously bit off more thanI could chew.
For example I will not be doing the Toa Nuva. Knowing how much time it took to create the original six...I'm not doing them again, lol. Keep an eye open Just in case they ap
