I'm Home/Hotel Transylvania/Tagged, FluttershyI am back from Korea, ( i came back last night, but the internet wasn't working for me to post this) and it was lovely, we took a tour there, so no wasting time, its winter there, that I'm not so used to it, since i live in Indonesia, after a few days we got used to the cold (either that or the temperature went up) we went to Jeju Island and Seoul, sadly i don't know why i don't remember half of what i did while i was in Jeju Island, i hope it will come back to me soon. I was a bit terrified that might freeze my fingers and toes, especially in Nami (?) Island, thankgoodness i made it, a bit unfortunate cause i couldn't enjoy the beauty of the sun, warm/cold colors, and the beautiful scenery, all in thanks to me getting a headache, I could have taken a lot of beautiful pictures. but yeah, the tour was quite fun.I'm Home/Hotel Transylvania/Tagged, Fluttershy1 year ago in Personal More Like This

I'm getting pretty sick of this site...Its hardly a site for art anymore. I like self portraits, and in the 4 years i've been here my favorite way of finding new artists is by browsing new self portraits. Its hard to take an interesting self portrait, its easy to point a camera t your face and take a photo, but hard to take an interesting one, and its served me well so far. After maybe 4/5 pages I would have 20-30 tabs open of both male and female self portraits, and from there around 10 new artists to watch. But now all you get is very poor nudes, not artistic, not even close, just dull meaningless photos, even from thumbnails its obvious a lot of them are stills taken from videos. I trawled through 20 pages today of new self portraits and found 6 I liked. A lot of people I used to see and talk to on here have either left, only come on every few weeks or just dont reply any more, and there is noone new coming through to replace them. ive not uploaded in a while, ok ive had outside issues that have held back my creativity,I'm getting pretty sick of this site...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Naxerik Species InformationThe NaxerikNaxerik Species Information1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Also known as the 'Devourers of Nightmares,' the Naxerik is an ancient being, widely feared due to its demonic appearance and its close connection to humanity's most terrifying nightmares. However, as most do not know, the Naxerik feeds upon these nightmares, thus eliminating them from the Dreamer's subconscious and leaving them with a calm, almost euphoric feeling.
Each Naxerik has the ability to reconstruct any dream they have "Seen" (not necessarily that they have eaten) from the mind of a Dreamer. These constructs are mere illusions, but can fool every sense as long as the Naxerik has the energy to hold it up. This ability is the only Naxerian defense, used to protect themselves from enemies by damaging them mentally with nightmares they have Seen.
Naxerik are commonly very peaceful beings, choosing to feed on a Dreamer's nightmares and move on. Some will single out a person and opt to stay with them, be it openly, or lur

Interesting Comic Convention fact #3Artist Alley booths can be grouped into General Categories. I have been collecting data for years, and here for the first time, I present my findings:Interesting Comic Convention fact #39 months ago in Personal More Like This
The Seasoned Anime Artist Booth: these artists almost always have 11ft diplsays, usually constructed from collapsible shelves or plastic piping. The artist themselves can sometimes be glimpsed through a tiny gap in their wall of artwork, usually drawing away, only emerging to conclude a transaction, and then quickly receding back to the safety of the artsy fortification.
The Shy Kickstarter Booth
These are the Artists trying to push their very first comic series, book etc. These artists are new, frightened of loud noises, and unsure of their surroundings. They can mostly be seen at sparsely filled tables. hiding in a sketchbook, awaiting to be discovered.
(they get much better by show 2)

May the Fourth/Revenge of the FifthSo I missed May 4th but Happy Follow-Up-To-Star-Wars-Day everybody.May the Fourth/Revenge of the Fifth7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I had stuff I wanted to draw to commemorate this day as usual, but after breakneck-animating for weeks and losing sleep over my finals, I'm just not in the mood to exert myself over drawings right now. I've spent all weekend thus far sleeping in, running Star Wars marathons, and playing on my SWTOR toons. All of them.
In the meantime I guess have these two new roleplay logs instead:

Hand Drawn AdviceSharing your traditional art can sometimes be a pain. In this journal we will talk about one way to digitally share traditional work, by taking a digital picture of it.Hand Drawn Advice1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The basic idea is simple, take a picture of your work in order to share it with others
The easiest photo to take is to just quickly take it inside with a cell phone. Oftentimes the weather isn't so great, or its night time, and a cell phone is all that you have; besides, this picture doesn't look TOO bad right?
But even if you don't have a fancy camera, not forcing your phone to compensate for a dark indoor setting will immediately help your photos turn out more nicely
BUT what if you have a fancy camera?
using a dedicated camera will further improve your photographs
I use an Olympus E-PL1, which is a hobbyist camera, if you have a fancy DSLR camera you can expect even better results
however if you want to accurately display what your art naturally looks like...

Devious Journal EntryMkay this is getting very annoying. xD so I guess ill just put up my two cents when it comes to this issue.Devious Journal Entry5 months ago in Personal More Like This
long text is long
I am not here on deviantART for anyone, I do not draw to please anyone, nor am I here to be used as a feature machine
This rant obviously does not include trades, gifts or commissions xD
The biggest thing that irks me is that people think, just because a lot of people have decided to follow me, I somehow have a obligation to use that to "help" other artists with amazing art get recognized. This is bullshit. Its not my or anyone elses responsibility to make anyone get attention.
IF someone really wants attention, I think its fair that they work for it instead of sitting on their l azy ass waiting for others to do it for them. Remembering back to my own first months here on dA it took me atleast 4 years of being very active. I MEAN uploading stuff almost everyday/commenting back to people, drawing trades and gifts.

Finnedyria CONTEST RESULTS!I have gone through all the entries and i have finally decided who I like the best and feel works the best into the world! I also wanted to choose entries that did not look to much like a finnedyr to begin with like bodyshape. THERE WERE Lots of amazing enteries! but could only be 4 winners! The criteria I wrote down at the beginning of the contest had a lot to do with why I choose the ones under and why I didnt choose others. I felt like the ones under really fit the criterias I added. I had many other favourites to, but I felt many of them looked to much like cats or dogs, which might be the reason why they did not get picked. BUt great work! fun to see so many people design creative things!

Know your Basics - TexturesThere are a lot of tutorials out there on how to create / photograph texture as well as how to use them on a technical level, but the question of why and when to use textures is rarely touched. This article wants to fill that gap and therefore looks at texures from a slightly different perspective.Know your Basics - Textures9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Textures in Manips as you know them
For a photomanipulator, the first thing that comes to mind when hearing the word "texture" are images that can be used in soft light or overlay mode to texture a manipulation or parts thereof. What most manipulators therefore have in mind, are images like the following:
Beautiful textures, sure, and useful, too, but have you ever thought of doing more with them than the aforementioned overlays? And have you ever considered using other kinds of textures, too?
