Lunar Lotus Festival-Development BlogI'm going to use this journal as a sort of development blog to keep track of progress on my Lunar Lotus Festival Dating Sim game. Editing the artist' comments under the demo to reflect changes was becoming a bit tedious so hopefully this method will work better.Lunar Lotus Festival-Development Blog3 years ago in Personal More Like This

ABOUT THE GAME
The goal of the game is to find Rhea a date to the Lunar Lotus Festival which is 30 days away. In order to do this you'll have to travel around the county talking to eligible bachelors and raising their affections for you. The higher their affections at the start of the festival, the better the ending you'll be able to achieve with them. Along the way you can participate in various tasks given to you by other characters such as going on fiend hunts, shopping, item quest and
AngealxGenesis Contest Prizes!!! (Finally -___-)I am a horrible horrible person and life sucks a lot sometimes. Sorry again for being away. You guys made this really difficult for me to choose winners! (I decided to have sort of two second and two third place prizes because I really couldn't decide and still can't really decide on winners ://///). I wish I could give everyone a prize. Thank you all so much for your entries!!! When I started this I was happy to just get enough entries to cover the prizes and was surprised to receive many more than that. I adore each and every one of them and have them cycling through as my desktop background XD. I will note the winners following the posting of this journal.

Life at the moment -Last night Israel agreed and signed on a humanity ceasefire, which earlier today was even extended until 00:00 tonight. Yet even still, just now, Sunday morning here in Israel, Hamas has broken the ceasefire by shooting more missiles towards us. I can not tell you how terrifying the situation is for someone who actually live in this situation for 20 days of war, and more so, for years upon years of living under the constant threat of Hamas missiles (more than 12,000 rockets were shot towards Israel in the last 12 years!). At the same time I cannot explain to you the sadness I feel towards innocent civilians in Gaza who also live under the terror regime of Hamas, who constantly and deliberately using them as a human-shield and as leverage for its own propaganda!Life at the moment -7 months ago in Personal More Like This
How long can Israel hold its fire while living under this threat?
What would any other country do, especially when in ceasefire?
As an Israeli, I can tell you that we are NOT at war with the Palestinian people! We are at war aga

deviantART has given me the opportunity to perform two Community Volunteer positions here:
I am the Science Fiction and Space Art Community Volunteer.
I am also now the new 3 Dimensional Art Community Volunteer.
One of the duties of these positions is that I can feature artwork from these categories as Daily Deviations.
I browse through these categories daily in search of deviations to feature as Daily Deviations.
This feature is to help the artist and their work gain more exposure, and it's genre and/or medium gains more community awareness as well.
But I need your help.
Have you seen a work of art here on deviantART which you have found so impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large?
Do you know an artist of whom deserves much more exposure?
Would you like to put a smile on someones face and make their

Stockers I Hate, Feature EditionSo, the stock community has grown and improved so much since I first started producing stock, and there are so many stockers whose stock I love.Stockers I Hate, Feature Edition2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
These aren't them. The stockers featured here are the people whose stock is so good, that I hate them out of pure jealousy. They tend to be people with resources or abilities beyond the scope of my own, and much the same taste. I'm only featuring stockers that primarily produce male stock, because that's what Ari and I do. If I featured female stockers I envied as well, we'd be here all year.
The first that has to be mentioned, of course, is jademacalla. I've hated him from day one, in a good way. His stock is awesome, and often makes me think "That must be uncomfortable."
In the vein of obnoxiously athletic stockers, I'd be wrong not to mention DaeStock, 'cuz, well, Duuuuuude. If you're looking for epic displays of male physicality, he's the stocker for you.
I also hate (in the good way) Nemesis-19 Not all of his stock is up my
Tips for Starting Commissions I was thinking about my last journal, where I asked why everyone and their cat wanted to sell commissions so badly. I recieved some really insightful answers.Tips for Starting Commissions9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I also had a lot of people asking me "How much should I charge for my work?"
I'll add a Disclaimer right here in front, as for whatever reason, something always offends someone :iconstunplz: . So I'll start off by saying, this is just my personal journal, and I'm just one person who has some experience with this. I'm not making a judgment on who should sell what, just writing some things I have personally learned along the way.
Well that's out of the way :iconyodawgplz:
So most artists starting off go through a period of confusion on how to price work. They get a lot of suggestions, or theories from well-meaning people such as:
"Artists always undervalue themselves. Don't charge less than minimum wage per hour"
This is true, and I agree. However, unfortunately,

'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi

Didja like EMPOWERED vol.7?(SPOILER ALERT!)Thought I'd post a journal for any deviantART readers wanting to weigh in on Empowered vol. 7, the latest installment of my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy" series published by Dark Horse Comics, on sale as of today.

Anyhoo, feel free to post your opinion here in the comments, which will hereafter be SPOILER ALERT Central for anyone who's not yet read the book; beware, virgin readers! (No, wait, that sounds bad...)
Side note: Despite an exhaustive corrections process, several maddening typos still snuck their way into Empowered vol. 7's 224 pages (just like the ninja who are the books' subjects, come to think of it). Example: My apologies in advance for the inexplicable, uh, "misspelling" of the Japanese kana for "Ikuzo!" during one of the two times it appears in the book.
And now, the mandatory floggery:
Art TradesOk, so, I saw this idea and thought it might be a good way to get me motivated for arts again. See, I learned something about myself. Unless I have a clear plan for one my characters or there's someone waiting on something, I tend to slack on the art front because I get so many ideas and just feel swamped. I also really need to work on doing ink lines by hand and finding a pen that I think works well with it. So to kill two birds with one stone, I'm going to offer art trades! The catch is, you'll need to finish yours first.Art Trades2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1: Look at the list below and pick a character you'd like to draw, and get crackin! It can be any of the characters there, or if I've missed one of mine that you like a lot, that's fine too. Basicly, any in this folder are fair game.
2: Draw that character in your favorite medium. Which means hand-drawn, CG, detailed sketch, pixel, etc. Hell, i
