SWAMP THING: The Orchestral ScoreGot a weird treats for you all,SWAMP THING: The Orchestral Score3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For years, whenever I've been intensively drawing a comic project I often felt the need the write myself some music. I've found out multiplying my creative output mysteriously benefit them all. There is, usually, no link bridging my Comic and musical world. Some fugues and some String Quartet sketches have been paired with Batman Incorporated for instance.
This time, being so enthusiast for swamp thing, I went and wrote the scored for issue 7 & 8. OK, not really, but I've tried to cover their thematic stuff in a 3:16 of Full Orchestral Music.
Here a breakdown of the cues:
00:00 The timeless mystery of the Green
00:49 Growth and fate of the Green Warrior
1:36 The Rot
2:00 A bit of actionny big battle for those who got bored until now.
May you enjoy this roughs mix.

Dragon Sculpting Tutorial on YouTube!Alright guys here you go! I finally made a video of me making one of my dragons. The video is pretty long, about an hour, so watch it when you have some time to veg and watch some sculpting. I was going to just make it a time-lapse, but ended up narrating the whole thing, so instead you get to listen to me babble on about sculpting for an hour while I'm making the dragon. It was actually pretty fun to make, so I think I'll make a pony one in the near future as well!Dragon Sculpting Tutorial on YouTube!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Leaderless Revolution for the 21st CenturyA little while ago, I read a book called The Leaderless Revolution: How Ordinary People will Take Power and Change Politics in the 21st Century by Carne Ross, a former member of the British Foreign Office and delegate of the UK mission to the UN who left his job after seeing how so-called "representatives" represent themselves and the interests of their biggest supporters (such as multinational corporations) rather than the people of the society who elected them or who they were appointed to represent. Ross believes that this removal of agency from the people themselves to representatives, and the alienation it causes, is responsible for much of the conflict in the world. Therefore, he supports a leaderless consensus-based directly democratic government, i.e., anarchism. He gives precedents for this type of government in societies from pre-industrial tribes to the anarchist communes of Spain in the 1930s, the latter being the subject of George Orwell's panegyric HoLeaderless Revolution for the 21st Century3 years ago in Personal More Like This
DA COMMISSIONS: WTF?I wanted to share this post I've seen on Tumblr. As a professionnal artist, I already know that I underprice my commissions. When you are a freelance, a drawing is generally 500€ to 1000€ when you're a beginner. On DA, I generally sell them at 30/50€. What to think about the new commission system, knowing that I'm already leaving my commissions for a low price?DA COMMISSIONS: WTF?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
You can easily understand: why do you open commissions then?
Well,I love drawing for other people, and most of commissionners don't even know the real price of a drawing (now you know!). But when I open commissions, this is because I've got the time, because I love to share with commissionners, to know their universe, OCs...and because it helps me to buy new fabric for reenactments too, for sure. But... Well... Shame on you DA! O_o
How can you sell a service for only 0.2/0.4$, knowing that DA takes 20% too?! O_o
It may be a good news for commissionners, but DA, you're killing the artists by making people think that a drawing cos

Well.... I'm not getting any sleep...I just watched V/H/S and well......the title speaks for itself. Seriously this has got to be one of the most freakiest movies out there. I am a huge fan of found footage films. But this one really scared me. Now I am going to be stuck watching Adult Swims Toonami cartoons. Like I know what the heck is going on in that cartoon called Bleach. When I first read that the title was called Bleach I really thought that there was going to be a bunch of Clorox bottles fighting crime or whatnot. But instead, all I got was a bunch of demons and monsters and swords and ...things......and people talking about who knows what. I guess if it gets bad I will go watch Food Network and learn how to make crème fraîche.Well.... I'm not getting any sleep...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Right first off this is not a rant, in fact, this is a study. Yes, an odd thing to study, don't judge me, however I've wanted to do this for a long, LONG time but only recently got the proper research down. The thing is yes I used to be a fangirl, not a major one, and to be fair I used to be a lot of stupid things like a fan of Twilight, but looking back now myself and at current proper fangirls, and also the actual Jeff the Killer story aka the original... I have come to an, interesting discover on why something intended as nightmare fuel is now desired by so many teenage girls.
Firstly if you look at the original image and current representations, they are very very different, especially in looks but also personality to what Jeff was originally shown as. I figured after a lot of thinking this is because the original Jeff didn't have much of a personality. We know he was insane, but, that's about it. As a human he didn't have much development as a character, neith

Creepypasta FandomA lot of people are asking; why exactly are people leaving the Creepypasta fandom? The Creepypasta fandom is large and vast. Most are brought into here by Slender or Jeff. I could say Jeff was my first Creepypasta but truly my first was the Bunnyman. But I digress, the reason people are leaving is pretty simple because when you think about it's being killed by some simple stuff that easily kills fandoms. When this kind of thing happens you often wonder and think about it watching it eventually fade away. When some people are simply growing out of the fandom others are leaving it for reasons that people can agree with. That also goes to things that can effect other fandoms; growing out of it is one of the biggest things. Remember when Spongebob was the biggest show on the planet? Or when everybody every time you asked what time it was they blurted out "ADVENTURE TIME!". Most of the time people just grew out of it, but the death or maybe eventual end to the Creepypasta fandom is coCreepypasta Fandom2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What I count as a real CreepypastaWell in my last journal, http://gingaakam.deviantart.com/journal/Jeff-is-a-human-No-way-391361872?offset=25#comments, some people pointed out that in a story like 'Jeff Versus Slenderman' Jeff did something or something immortal or some shit like that.What I count as a real Creepypasta2 years ago in Personal More Like This
FIRST OF ALL, Let me take this time to quote myself:
'ALSO, this is only taking facts from Jeff's ORIGINAL STORY, fanfics and things like that will not be taken into thought.'
ONLY HIS ORIGINAL STORY. But I should also point out what I consider 'real creepypasta'
Crossover stories such as Jeff Versus Slenderman/Jane, I do NOT count as creepypastas. For me they go into a sub category of fanfic, into one of crossovers. And as I've said, I don't read fanfics. Most of the time.
This type of story would be like if I wrote a story of Jeff encountering Kagekao, probably before they knew each other so would be enemies; or at least not friends. It's a crossover, but NOT a creepypasta, a crossover story.
Just because a crossover

OMG EVERYONE IS SOOOOO MEAN TO TWILIGHT/HETALIA/FURRY/YAOI FANS! WE'RE JUST THE INNOCENT VICTIMS!
Oh fuck no you're not. The first two and the fourth listed are probably the least innocent and the third is just stupid. Yes, I'm calling my own fandom stupid.
Twilight and Hetalia: If your fans weren't so batshit crazy and attacked the fuck out of people who don't like it, MAYBE PEOPLE WOULD RESPECT YOU MORE. I'm sure there are reasonable fans, I'm friends with several. But you can't just blame all the shit you get on how omgmeen others are. You have to accept the responsibility of being a fandom known for housing fucking insane fans.
You know I get at least one comment, e-mail, or note every three days or so from one of these two fandoms either screaming at me for not liking it, screaming at me for spreading the hate, or both? Yeah.

In _____ We TrustIn response to a recent petition, the phrase "In God We Trust" will stay on US currency. The reasoning included these points:In _____ We Trust2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"While the President strongly supports every American's right to religious freedom and the separation of church and state, that does not mean there's no role for religion in the public square."
"A sense of proportion should also guide those who police the boundaries between church and state. Not every mention of God in public is a breach to the wall of separation - context matters.
"That's why President Obama supports the use of the words "under God' in our Pledge of Allegiance and "In God we Trust' on our currency and as our national motto. These phrases represent the important role religion plays in American public life, while we continue to recognize and protect the rights of secular Americans.

The more complex/important the character is to your story, the more awesome their introduction should be. Show them doing something they would only do, and also show them reacting to something that requires a little extra effort from them in a way that shows how they use their extra effort in a unique way. If your character isn't that important, don't give them an awesome intro since we'll be wanting to see more of that character.Don't copy the ideas of others: do the thing that others will want to copy. I call this "the anti-cliche rule." If you saw another story and thought, "I should totally do that," only give your uni

Another rant -_-Alright, This time, I'm making a rant on the Creepypasta fanbase/fandom.Another rant -_-3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. I hate it when I see people saying that they are "dating Jeff" Or anyone else in the Creepypasta fandom. If they were real, They wouldn't be looking for someone to fuck. They would be looking for people to kill. That's not the worse part, Though. I hate it even MORE when someone ships their characters with an original character. I mean, I can understand shipping a canon character with another character (Hell, I even ship JeffxMasky sometimes) But I HATE people who ship their OCs (Or should I say, Their Mary-sues).
2. I also hate how people are saying that they/their OCs could beat any of the canon characters. Alright, Let's say that the Creepypasta characters are real, And you say, "I could beat *insert name of any creepypasta character here*" Well, How would you like it if that character was in your room that night? Yeah, You wouldn't like that, Would you?
3. Ok, I can understand if you draw some of the canon
Guide on how to create vector-style rasters (OLD)EDIT - Dec 08, 2013 - This is OLD, like really, really OOOOOOLLLLD and outdated, and there are better methods out there. I don't even do vectors this way anymore. That said, it's still useful as a guide on how to use the pen tool to make shapes specifically for pony vectors in a manner where they're layered efficiently easily modifiable. Just felt the need to point this out as I am still getting messages from people who don't understand that this is old and that I know there are alternative methods.

Before I say anything, if you're familiar with proper vectoring at all then once you've heard what I do you'll realize I'm not making "true" vectors with the process I use. This might seem a bit odd because what I do means that if I wanted to make a larger version of the image I would basically have to scale the paths I've made and re-"paint" the whole image, but I'm just doing these for fun so I make them large to begin with; the end re

I got a few requests to include the list in a seperate journal entry, so here it is! I was also requested to include download links/info etc to the games. I'll do my best, but I haven't got time to search for all of them/play all of them, so if anyone could provide me with links, brief descriptions, or titles of new games, that would be fantastic!
For some of the games there will be a lack in information, usually either for a plot synopsis or for warnings regarding triggers, gore, violence etc. These will usually be caused by my not having played the game, so if you see one of the listed games lacking information, please feel free to provide it
