Communities rely on Pillars made of HeartCommunities of all kinds are held up by pillars made of heart. Typically embodied by people who let the weight of their community rest on their shoulders, willing to let life be life. Sometimes it hurts, and sometimes it's comfortable. Regardless, the result is a halo that surrounds all participants in a community. The healing light of being mothered, fathered or cared for.Communities rely on Pillars made of Heart1 year ago in Personal More Like This
These are very special people who take this role in your community. Maybe this person is you. In which case, please be you today, and every day. Because you are very important.
For the rest of us, we all know who the pillars are that hold up the communities that we care about. We all know the value of what they do, especially when we stop to think about it.
There is nothing in life that I have ever found a deeper admiration for than people who take on this role. Pillars of Community. When a human being digs their heels in, claims territory and begins to show Love towards a group of people, they begin to embody

Back to School and Accepting CriticismI am sick to death of people bitching to me that I can't accept criticism.Back to School and Accepting Criticism3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And I'm tired of people thinking that I don't WANT constructive feedback or that I block anyone who "offers" it.
But because I'm tired of writing long defense journals trying to open people's eyes to what I think is noticeable improvement on my part.... we're gonna try something a little different.
I think the best way to tell if I am accepting criticism is to SEE it in action. So this is what I'm gonna do. Each week I am going to post something I'm working on, be it a page from a comic, an illustration, or whatever. I'm gonna start with the pencil sketches and I'm going to allow everyone everywhere to critique it.
But hang on... I don't just want people writing longwinded essays pointing out what's wrong with it and how to improve...
I'm a visual learner and I need to see what I am doing wrong in order to get better. You'll be able to download it and draw on it, resubmit it as a link in a comment, redraw it ent
How to work smarter and not harder on commissions:iconsaniika: Hi all!How to work smarter and not harder on commissions3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am currently for several years now a freelancer earning my living with commissions and other side projects. Throughout the years I have made quite a bit of discoveries, tested what works for me or not and here is the compiled result on how to improve and make it easier for you to work on commissions. Some things might work for you better than others, but that's the trick - figuring it out on your own and finding whats the top for you.
Tip 1 - Create template responses
This is mostly helpful for saving up time. When I started I typed everything manually over and over again, however as my business picked up and I got more busy, templates helped me a lot. Templates shrink the time spent on correspondence. When you are doing everything on your own and don't have a secretary to take care of it, pre-typed text save time and hassle. For example you won't ma

Mewthree Design Contest (with prizes) (Closed!)The-Mew3-Townside is hosting a design contest for the ultimate Fakemon, the Mewthree. The premise is simple. From August 1st to the end of August 31st we're inviting both members and non-members alike to participate in designing their very own Mewthree. There are a few rules to follow in this contest:Mewthree Design Contest (with prizes) (Closed!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1.) Unless it is literally a black and white character, the Mewthree must be in color.
2.) It can be any medium you like!
3.) Drawing/art skills do not count here. It's all about your creative design, not your skill.
4.) The design must be new. No copies, and no old designs that you made from the past and already posted.
5.) The last image you enter will be the only one that counts, but you can enter multiples.
Here is a couple tips to help you win (you can see pre-existing designs by doing a search for 'Mewthree' so you know what not to do):
1.) Avoid certain colors. Black and red mostly. It's very common.
2.) Don't be too simple, like just change the colors of a Mewtwo.
3.) Also do

Aphrodite Contest - $1000 and more in prizes!Have you ever wanted to have your concept art idea used in a comic? Well you have your chance now (unless you are already a published pro and this shouldn't be new to you)!Aphrodite Contest - $1000 and more in prizes!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In short we are holding a concept art competition for the character of the goddess Aphrodite for use in our ancient Greek mythology series, Theoktonia!
In our poll we asked you what would you wish to win the most, in a concept art contest for an established comic. We heard you, we considered your votes and the best part is, aside the money prizes (1000$ in total), the top winner will actually declare Aphrodite's looks in Theoktonia!
Talk about permanent recognition right?
Actually there is an even better part, the community will decide by voting their favorite concepts! Yay for democracy!
This will by no means be just an illustration contest. All visual media will be accepted, be that 3d art, computer art, traditional art, photography, you name it!
So if you can't draw, grab a camera and cosplay!!

My name is Cameron Paris, 22 - and I am a self taught graphic designer who has created multiple working websites, logos, t-shirts, business cards, animated shorts and more. I am addicted to making art on the computer, with markers, and several other techniques. I love helping people find their inner imaginations.

What homework judges had Well, each judge had to choose 8 semi-finalists from each category (there was drawing category and painting/coloring category). Here in the journal I posted top 10 drawings/paintings which got most votes, from each category (paintings in journal are not in order from many to less votes...it's random).
