Tracing gets you nowhere.I remember when I was a kid, I'd record Saturday morning cartoons, play them back, pause the image, put a piece of paper over the screen and trace my favourite characters.Tracing gets you nowhere.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now this was really hard in the VHS era, because a paused image on a VHS is usually either broken up or shakes so much that you’ll have some kind of fit if you look at it too long, it depended on how cheap and sh*tty your machine was.
But I worked really hard at it, man. I spent ages getting the linework just right, I was so careful, and when I peeled the page from the static cling of the bulbous, cathode ray tube screen, the character looked exactly right on the page. And you wanna know what I took away from that endeavour? What all that effort taught me?
Jack f**king sh*t.
You don’t pick up or develop any skills by tracing. You don’t devise and perfect your own methods by tracing. You do not progress as an artist by tracing. All you get is a loss of credibility, especially in this day and age, bec

Last night...I was a foolish young woman. I behaved selfishly, and in a moment of pain and hurt and anger, I hurt myself. I tried to OD in rebellion to those around me who mock me for the simplest things, and have their jolly fun at the expense of my emotions. I...did not know how much of my painkillers I took. A handful, at least...the rest of the bottle that I had. In a moment's clarity, I realized my terrible mistake, and I fell flat on my face before God and begged Him for mercy...for I didn't know if I was going to live or die in the next few hours. As I prayed and sought forgivness for my selfish sin and self-destruction attempt...I felt the Spirit of God come to me and say this, "Dani...you have forgotten why you are alive. You need

From 2009 to 2013 I went on hiatus from Youtube. There were a few reasons for this happening; One of the major factors being a hard-drive crash which wiped nearly all of my REMusical base content. It took a long time for me embrace the change and seeing it as a way to improve myself. I also had my college art projects and studies to focus on during that time.
However, there was another reason I needed a break that I wasn't very vocal about. Truth was, I felt the Youtube community surrounding my videos had become excessively negative over time. What started out as something simple and fun had slowly t
Batman RevealedZack Snyder just released a Photo of Ben Affleck in the new Bat suit I have the photo and the enhanced version of it below.Batman Revealed1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I am a huge Batman fan (He's my favorite comic hero) and when I first heard Ben Affleck was going to play him, I was upset, however, over time I gave it some thought and I decided I would give them the benefit of the doubt because I really liked how they did Superman... Well after seeing this photo, any and all doubt I previously had is gone! This suit kicks ass! The more I look at it the more I like it!
It's also the closest Batman has ever got to looking like he does in the comics and as you guys know I'm a big comic book fan.
Anyways, I would love to hear your thoughts on it. Do you hate it? Do you love it?
These images below are what I believe the suit was based off of, or at least what they got the most inspiration from.
Tu Patron TrollOkey, la mayoría de personas dice 'Kanaya es mi patron troll porque soy del mes tal' y sí, chévere que seas de ese mes pero dude...así no se saca tu patron troll .__.Tu Patron Troll2 years ago in Personal More Like This
En Tumblr hace tiempo lo han estado poniendo, pero está en inglés y la mayoría de nosotros no entendemos bien lo que dice 38'D (incluyéndome). Al final esto es lo que entendí:
1! Tu fecha de cumpleaños. En mi caso es el 25 de agosto= 25/8 pero como HS y casi todo lo relacionado con el webcomic es en inglés, pones tu fecha en inglés...al final todo para poner 8/25 .U
2! Ya lo tienes? bien, fue fácil no? ahora separalo por dígitos: 8/2/5. Gr8!
3! Súmalos. No 8+25 (en mi caso), sino 8+2+5
4! La suma (o la respuesta) es tu patron troll! //por el orden de la lista de signos//
5... Wait, me salió un número mayor que 12, ¿qué hago? Lo único que tienes que hacer es dividir tu respuesta entre 12. Si te sale 1.5 o menos tu patron troll es Aradia (0u0). Si es 1.6 o un número mayor, entonces es Tavbro }.D i mean, Tavros

I have been speaking with Yeti through notes over the past few days, and he has been very willing to fix the situation. He has sincerely apologized to me and removed the videos that contained traces of my artwork, contacted his Partnership employers about the de-monetization of the videos that have other traces. He willingly admitted to tracing, but did not understand that [all] tracing was wrong. I've given him some information on the matter and why it is morally, or in some cases legally a bad thing to do. He was glad to learn from this and plans to apply this to future animations.

Update On My YWAM Mission TripSo, just over a year ago, I decided to join Youth With A Mission (YWAM), and attend Cowboys With A Mission (curious? go to www.cowboyswithamission.com) in Wyoming in April of 2014. Since then, I have been working very hard and raising the funds needed for the three months in Wyoming and the two to three months overseas. Initially, the tuition cost was $6450, but due to the fact that I will be going to Mongolia for my overseas outreach, the price rose slightly to $6950. Beyond that, I was informed that I would need extra funds for travel visas, shots, and for emergency (since I will be working around and with livestock, both in Wyoming and in Mongolia), so I set a $8500 goal to cover the tuition and the extra funds that would be needed.Update On My YWAM Mission Trip2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Dragon Ball: GYREWar had come. It had come abruptly, but not without warning. For years, we could see moons crumble in the dark... and see suns fade in the day. In the beginning, we heralded a God as the cause; an angry God laying waste to the worlds of heathens. It's sickening to think how naive we were.Dragon Ball: GYRE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When our sister moons began to fall, scouts were able to identify the true cause: an army. An army bent on galactic conquest, led by someone that was more ghost than Commander. They called him "Frieza, the Resolute", an Algidi warlord. Reports identified his methods of planetary takeover to include slavery, terraforming, and genocide. Worlds he deemed unbefitting to his agendas, he snuffed out entirely, leaving them as barren wastes or black holes. And we were next.
We took what little time we had to prepare for what ultimately was a futile resistance. But even so, our Saiyan pride would have it no other way. Our technology was far supe
