See you at Anime Destiny!Hey guys!See you at Anime Destiny!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is will be the last con of the year for me, and what better way to end it than at the con held by my very own university I'll be at the annual Anime Destiny convention this November 16 at the Clark Kerr Conference Center at UC Berkeley, CA. As usual, I'll be in the Artist Alley with prints and books.
This year the Artist Alley will be in the Krutch Theatre due to construction of the usual location. Anime Destiny is a small con, but it's also one of my favorites because I get to see a lot of my old Berkeley friends there, and meet news ones as well. If you live in the bay area, come by and hang out!

HOLIDAY CHARACTER DESIGN CONTEST
Hey all! Sorry for being late in getting this ready, but welcome to the Holiday Character Design Contest. For those of you who aren't familiar with my webcomic Holiday, here is a link to the site; http://holidaycomic.net . Go take a look!

PE - All From One BaseA little under a week before Dolling Week began, mariiiis-dolls sent me a note with an amazing idea...PE - All From One Base3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
"Many people don't think dolling is very difficult, because we use premade bases and therefore don't put much effort into our dolls....But we do.
How about choosing (or creating, even though it's very spontaneous) a base, and a few dollers with diverse styles who should use the same base? Everyone would doll in their own unique style, to show that bases are more an inspiration, a point to start or a kind of 'collab' with the base maker, rather than a crutch? Maybe even a small description about the techniques the dollers use, technical details (like colors, time spent and so on). Dolling can be much more than using the base because 'we're lazy' - we use bases because we want to work with different styles, and combine styles of our own with styles of the base maker to create unique work."

Perception on the InternetYour average user on the internet can generally say whatever they want about an issue. It's alright to voice an opinion because no one is really going to track you down and attack you for having one (unless you're doing it in a really really public place like a forum or chat room). However, as I've become somewhat popular online, I've noticed a perception from people that I must maintain a neutral and unbiased outlook at all times on every issue.Perception on the Internet4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Regardless of what that issue is I'm not generally free to express my opinion without first listing a whole bunch of qualifiers for "why" I feel this way, or by making it very clear that it's OK for you to disagree. You are not allowed to "sum up" an experience, and it's greatly discouraged for you to generalize. I've notice that this mentality has greatly affected my writing style as it forces me to tip toe very carefully around every issue I address.
Using my most famous example: I am not allowed to say that I enjoyed Metroid: Othe

Judging will commence shortly. Stay tuned!
Welcome to my first ever contest, I hope it will be a blast! I am very excited.
themes and objectives
The theme is very simple. As a lover of World Crossovers, this contest will be about that. Your Characters and Mine. But it's not just ANY world crossover; I believe this one should be imaginative at best.
The Objective is rather simple;
Choose one of my characters and pair them up with one of yours, but not just ANY character. One who you think would be the most unlikely or forbidden friend to my own.
Imagine a scene or situation where they would have met each other, and illustrate them in that situation and scene.

The icon-set I posted yesterday is being reblogged like crazy.
Except... some random person took it upon himself / herself to remove my artist-comment.
NOT COOL. No exposure and no info about the rules of usage!
I did reblog it, adding a mini-grump and the comment again, but at this rate the damage is done.
Tumblr, I LOVE YOU but I don't love this. Seriously.
This is frustrating and exactly what I feared when those pixels started blowing up.
Here's hoping no one reposts / changes the source. I s2g.
EDIT: so I found out who removed the comment / credit and this happened.
Fuck you too, man. Seriously. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
Freelancing tip: Make Better ArtI was pondering art and life as usual and this topic came to mind that I felt was worth writing about. As a freelancer, especially just starting out, don't limit the quality of your work based on what you're being paid. Entry level rates are terrible, we're all trying to fix that, but in the meantime you have to play the game if you want to have a career in the arts.Freelancing tip: Make Better Art3 months ago in Personal More Like This
To escape the sticky swamp of entry level jobs, you need to produce better work and market that work, which will never happen if you're always taking shortcuts to get your work done faster because, "They're only paying me X, it's not worth spending more than X hours on."
To grow your career, you need to create artwork that's worth more than what you're being paid, for three reasons:
1. If you do that for long enough, your existing clients will pay you more because they want to keep you.
2. If your existing clients can't pay you more, your increased work quality will attract (with the help of your proactive marketing) bette

DEAR TEEN ME: The Contest. (Warning: EPIC prizes!)This journal comes to you from PinkyMcCoversong!DEAR TEEN ME: The Contest. (Warning: EPIC prizes!)3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So you might have heard of this little book I co-edited called DEAR TEEN ME. It's an anthology of letters from authors to their teen selves. The authors in the anthology range from best-selling and award-winning authors to some fabulous up and comers. I know that no matter what, if you pick up the book, you'll find a letter or two (at least!) that speaks to you.
This is our fancy Amazon/Goodreads/B&N/Book Depository/Pick-your-bookseller blurb:
DEAR TEEN ME includes advice from over 70 YA authors to their teenage selves. The letters cover a wide range of topics, including physical abuse, body issues, bullying, friendship, love, and enough insecurities to fill an audit
