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.1 year 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

Never let anyone tell you that something is impossible.
I lived by that when it sparked in me the possiblity of achieving something despite everyone telling me it being impossible otherwise. People have always told me it's impossible, that it's been tried. If you know what I'm talking about then your already on your way. What I will say to you ignore those who've been defeated by what they call "experience." Keep going and don't let anyoen tell you otherwise.
I know this might sound familiar even, never give up etc. But it's how I live my life even currently as there still are more "experienced" people who will criticize that I'm doing it wrong. It's the human spirit that'll keep us alive. This rings true to the events of my life, w

i don't like sharing details about this so i will leave it at this.
this has improved. it is not resolved but there is optimism.
which is good for sunstone as i can focus on this more !
so as things are looking right now, chapters 5 and 6 will be done this year with some bonus stuff. in a week or so i will post the final strip of chapter 4 in which we finish destroying what was built on poor unstable foundation. and then...

And lastly we have the Enemies Trailer. This is the special trailer for two reasons. One; it finally shows gives a first look at one of ME3's main antagonists, and secondly; it shows more Female Shepard. (And that Kaidan bloke, too.)

Nintendo Japan was warned last week that Junichi Masuda would make an important announcement about X and Y Pokémon in the Pokémon Smash this Sunday!
Junichi Masuda has already moved several times on tv trays to announce important information about the franchise.
Remember he presented in person Pokemon Black and White 2 and Zorua or Zoroark.
As expected, this spoke at the Pokémon Smash on Sunday, and by the merest chance, the Pokémon has announced a relationship with Mewtwo, it is a new Pokémon to the effigy of Mewtwo!
We are now determined on this exclusive info revealed in the company of our dear Junichi Masuda!
A question arises now on!
What is the name of this Pokémon and what degree is its link with Mewtwo?
It will be present in Pokémon X and Y.
Pro Naruhina Pro Ichihime rant and morePro NaruhinaPro Naruhina Pro Ichihime rant and more3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok this is my 1st rant about anything.
"Hinata is annoying"
Really? Since when is she annoying. She may be shy and quiet and reserved but she is certainly not annoying. She made stutter alot but that only adds to her sweetness and cuteness. She is a kind sweet caring girl.
"Hinata's love is onesided and can never be canon"
Really? It maybe one-sided now but as of the late recent chapters it seems to me like Naruto is slowly but surely reciprocating her one-sided love for him. It can become canon if the creator decides it shall be and so far Masashi is giving us Naruhina lovers what we want.
Hinata is a bright, caring, sweet, shy, gentle, timid, compassionate girl that is willing to sacrifice herself for those she loves. I love Hinata's character development. After being bullied and brought down by those who deemed her worthless, useless, and weak she went right back up and showed them. She worked hard and trained everyday so that she could be stronger and show ppl what she
Friday, Day 2 of Comic-ConComic-Con Veterans know there's an ebb and flow of patrons as the week progresses. While Preview Night can be frenzied with excitement for the con to come, there's also a notable saving of energy, knowing that the scant few hours of the first day will be nothing compared to the full-day smorgasbord for the remaining 4 days of the week. Thursday seems even more crazed by comparison, but of course, not all con-goers can get a weekday off. By Friday, electricity is buzzing in the air as cosplayers bust out their second outfit, comic-lovers bust out their second wallets, and area convenience stores are running dangerously low on comfy insoles and 5-Hour Energy Drinks.Friday, Day 2 of Comic-Con2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

I've started to get a few questions about my reaction to REmake being remastered for Playstation, Xbox, and PC so I figure I'll make a short public statement on the matter.
I think this is great! REmake is possibly one of the best installments to the entire Resident Evil series and I think it's gonna be awesome to have it on all these new platforms. On Gamecube the game was amazing and well beyond its time in terms of graphics. Unfortunately it was only for Gamecube and I think that was seriously limiting to the fanbase, considering the entirety of the series were originally found on Playstati

The Effectiveness of SimplicityI like to draw and look at rather complex works of illustration. Perpectiveful pinnacles of technical achievement, etc. However, I watch a good number of artists who use simplicity to great effect. Whether it be representing more complex objects and figures as simpler forms, or just a philosophy of "less is more," I can easily be just as impressed (if not more so) with the understanding and implementation of simplicity as I get with more complex works.The Effectiveness of Simplicity2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's a short feature of some examples of works I've seen recently that got me good. Enjoy!
This work by radsechrist looks complex (such as the third image which I'll be talking about a bit here,) and to an extent it is -- however upon closer inspection, the actual details and construction is quite simplified, even crude. And it's fantastic. The artist shows such a vast understanding of how and where to place detail that matters,

- Actually learn Japanese.
I've been wanting to learn Japanese for a while and I've already bought a bunch of books/CD's to teach me. That and I've always wanted to learn a second language. Would just like to point out though that I am not a weaboo, so you won't be seeing me going "Kawaii" or "Desu". Especially since when most people say "Desu", it's in the completely wrong context.
- Get Red Madness/Ruby Nuzlocke to the 5th gym
At the very least I want to get my Nuzlocke up to the 5th gym. I know it's likely I will, but considering that I wanted to get to it at September at one point, I can't be too careful.
- Improve in my Academics
I'm a lazy shit. Now that we got that out of the way, my objective is to do better in my College courses.
So what will your New Years Resolution be? And for the love of god people gimme good one people. No silly ones.

So this is basically a thank you to the two people making the PUBLISHED version of Nowhere Man possible - wonderful editor Kelsey :iconlovemesome2d: and the wonderful illustrator Rebecca :iconbeccaecka: to be honest I've done very little apart from designing the cover for it and that is all... so these two deserve huge rounds of applause and please offer it.

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
