Anti- Bullying SpeechDear bullies, You see that 15-year-old girl holding hands with her one-year-old son that you called a slut? She was raped at 13. You see that boy crying that you made fun of for being a cry-baby? His best friend committed suicide last night. You see that girl that you make fun of for having all those bruises? She is abused by her parents. You see that bald woman that you made fun of? She is dying of breast cancer. You see that old man that you called ugly? He got a serious injury to his face in the war. You see that man that you made fun of for having all those burns? He ran into a burning hospital to save his dead daughter. You see that girl that you called fat? She is starving herself. You see that boy you called stupid? He has Down Syndrome. Like this journal and re-post if you are against bullying. I bet that none of you will re-post this journal. But I did. And I hope you do the same. And I hope you find the power to defend yourself and others aganist any kind of bullying. Stay stAnti- Bullying Speech6 months ago in Personal More Like This

Keeping up with the NEWS around these partsYee haw?Keeping up with the NEWS around these parts1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, since I hate properly addressing what's currently happening with the film and all other things, here is a simple numbered list to keep it...simple.
1: Going to be getting the entire adobe suite including flash and Dreamweaver soon.
2: If you didn't hear, for all you Digi-fans, The OFFICIAL first season of Digimon (US dubbed version) is released. (35 bucks at Walmart) and the second official released season will be out March 2013.
3: Been sick this week, so nothing new lately for the film, but once I'm up and running I'll be focusing on voice clips (auditions), story/script with help from the editors, music/score from haloflooder, and I'll finish all concept art. (which quite honestly, I'm getting sick...2 years of it ya know?)
4: Planning a behind the scenes for the film with Mr. voice of Johnny C. (His name has been withheld! -creepy dark voice-)
Any questions about future plans, or just questions about the film, ask away... I just might feel like answering. Stay tune

BLOGSPOTHey guys. Yea I haven't been around much, doing alot of drawing and learning! Not many 3d pieces for the next two years- going to be focusing way more on traditional and painting. Good news though, when I'm done with Art Center (or even the next two years of work) those traditional skills will help my 3D immensely, and I'll be able to create some epic environments...BLOGSPOT1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you would like, I invite you to check my blog: http://fmacmanus.blogspot.com
I will be posting sketches and paintings on there, daily to weekly. The work will be crappy at first of course, but working till 2AM every day will make me improve pretty quickly. When I start at AC, I'll get another jump in skill...
Hope you guys are doing well. Peace out

Reading Stan Lee's How to Draw ComicI love Marvel comics, but c'mon, how practical is Red Sonja's fighting costume? She'd be bloody mess after her first battle - she has no protection.Reading Stan Lee's How to Draw Comic2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I do like Stan Lee's quote and find it inspiring: "What exactly is a style anyway? One school of thought is that a style is everything an artist does wrong. Follow that? If the artist did it right, it would look like a photograph. So everything an artist does to adapt reality in his or her way onto the comic book page becomes his or her style."
Artists: Protect Your ArtworkIf you've ever done some good fan art, you know people love to treat it like screenshots. They think they can report it, edit it, and even recolor it. Even some of you in the original art area have been a victim to people messing your your artwork without permission.Artists: Protect Your Artwork6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
We've all heard it several times "Watermark your stuff. Watermark your stuff" yadda yadda yadda blah blah blah. But there are more ways to avoid art theft. Here's some I've found useful.
1. Watermark your work
You've heard it before, and I'm gonna pound it into your skull even more. GIVE YOUR ARTWORK A WATERMARK. Give it your user name and make it something people can see. Come on guys. I know it's not something we enjoy, sticking something all over the works we slaved over, but it's important. Also, you may get more people willing to help when your work is stolen if you do this. I know I sure feel worse for somebody who at least attempted to protect their work than somebody who complains about it but refuses to do
Image theft: Helpful info and interviewLately, over the last few months, and really, over the last few years, there has been a lot of talk about image theft, and copyright infringement. There is little that can be done about it, its just a fact of eLife they say.. It is if you let it. There are several ways to combat image theft, be it in photoshop, or in the court room.Image theft: Helpful info and interview6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So you've been ripped.. Now What?
Firstly, let me say that image ripping is wrong, but we all rip music, so there is also the debate about that.. Is it wrong? Some argue the fact that people are collecting your work, using sites like flikr to collect their favorite images into one place.. Is that wrong? YES. deviantART offers free accounts with a favorite option.. Which i have seen many an account with only favorites.
That leads us to blogs. One of my images was used on an emo blog based in Russia, i couldn't understand anything, but after having it translated, m

Double-M Double-S time!Hey everybody! I just paid my rent, fixed my brakes, and did my taxes. Coincidentally, I think it's time to open some commissions! Here's the drill:Double-M Double-S time!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Comics are hand-drawn on 8.5" x 11" paper.
b/w (pencil & ink) page: $30
color (traditional or digital) page: $60
Please keep the approximate panel count down to six per page. And if you supply dialogue, keep in mind that I may change it slightly to fit the artwork. Also, keep it simple as far as characters go. 2-3 characters works best for this.
2. Thrandrall (more of a series of pin-ups, but I'm putting it here in terms of workload)
Pin-ups are hand-drawn on 11" x 14" watercolor paper, and I'll more than likely do watercolors for all pin-ups.
b/w (pencil & ink): $30
color (traditional or digital): $50
Pin-ups are single character. If there's a duo or something you absolutely need, we'll work something out rate-wise.

Thank you for the support, I can't wait to hang out over ChristmasPlease wash up your dishes and don't leave bits of food in the drainI wish I could of been the only girl for you.
2. One of my insecurities.
My slightly soft body, namely my breast, which really could be a tad smaller.
3. What turns me on.
my legs being stroked, kissing, generic stuff like that.
4. One of my bad habits.
saying sorry all the time, often over random things that aren't my fault.
5. Who I wish I could be.
No one, I just wish I was a better version of myself.
6. Where I want to be right now.
In a different country, namely outside of Europe with enough money to explore it properly. (Lets say Japan, South Korea, Canada)
7. The last thing I ate.
stir-fried vegetables (red onions, cabbage, peppers, carrot, bean sprouts) with some herbs
8. Sexiest person that comes to my mind immediately.<
Commissions!So, um, I decided to try my hand at the whole commissions thing that's all the rage with the kids these days.Commissions!4 days ago in Personal More Like This
-$4 for a character sketch
-$8 for a digitally inked character
-$12 for a digitally inked character with flat colour
-$16 for a digitally inked, coloured, and shaded character
Any extra characters in the picture will cost $4 per additional character.
If you would like a coloured background for a picture with flat colour or shaded colour it will cost an additional $2, otherwise it will just have a transparent background.
I'm fine with drawing just about any character, although there are a couple of things that I won't draw.

This is one year old journal, but I have great news - I just read that in local ZOO, baby arctic wolves were born again!
They still stay in a burrow, but as soon as they get older and leave the den, I will do my best to bring you some photos
Photos in this journal were taken in 2011

The quality is very bad, they were some 20-30 metres from me, but I think you can still enjoy their cuteness

"I want to be a better artist."This is a sentiment I hear often on dA. It's usually followed by a question regarding how one should go ABOUT becoming a better artist."I want to be a better artist."3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've no doubt made journals like this in the past, but here's another one. This page was in dire need of an update, either way. : )
I could probably talk your ear off for a mile and a half about why I should be the last person you ask for creativity-boosting advice. Aaaand I have my reasons for this, but that's not really what anyone who writes me wants to hear, I think. It's just a fair warning. I'm not an accredited teacher, I was far from the most capable person at my college, I've made a metric crapton of mistakes, and I am nowhere near where I'd like to be in my own personal artistic endeavors. If that doesn't bother you, well, keep on reading!
The best way I could aid anyone interested in bettering themselves would probably be by giving you the advice that inspires me the most. Stuff I've heard from frie
Copic Markers and Pony colorsI get a LOT of questions regarding what colors I use where when it comes to the ponies, and I keep saying I'm gonna make a little guide. Well, let's give it a shot.Copic Markers and Pony colors2 months ago in Personal More Like This
For the majority of my covers, I use Copic markers to color. Copics are light-fast, alcohol markers... not unlike a classic school marker, but higher quality. I prefer Copic over other brands primarily for a few reasons: Variable tips (markers, fine, brush, etc), better blending, and they can be refilled! This is the BIG selling point to me... this means you can buy the marker once, and continue to refill. It also means you can custom blend colors should you desire. Copics also guarantee that if you buy Y00 yellow, and then buy another down the line, the colors will match. I've bought the same marker color from other brands and had them not match. I will use other brands here and there for very specific colors or effects, but Copic is 99% of my marker work.
So... when I do a cover or whatever, I do basic ink lines first wit
