Rule 34My latest little pony-themed comics have brought up some more questions about whether I'll ever do Rule 34s on these things. Well, no. I haven't fully analyzed the reason why I have an aversion to Rule 34 things in general. The more I know about a particular cartoon, either from the past or from a present following, the more of an "eh" reaction I have to fan-made adult images I run across. What I feel when I see it isn't dissimilar to seeing a celebrity's face photoshopped onto a nude body. No matter how well done it may be, there's a level of "I just know too well how fake this is" involved. This may seem surprising, since the jests that I draw are sometimes of an "after 9pm" subject. But these are just purely playing on embellishments of character, rather than a desire to elaborate on a cartoon character's personal sexual motions (or their genitals). I suppose as close as I've come was the human version of Zecora, which, while a nude, wasn't very explicit or sexual. It didn't show muRule 343 years ago in Personal More Like This

Hate Mary Sues? Don't we all!With the creation of several self-publishing websites such as Lulu and the general standard of what is deemed to be publishable declining, every thirteen year old girl and her pet goldfish believe they have what it takes to be the next big author. In an attempt to churn out a book series of six-hundred pages in one weekend, many juvenile wannabe authors neglect the very building blocks of their fiction: the characters.Hate Mary Sues? Don't we all!6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Most of us have heard the terms Mary Sue and Gary Stu before heck, they may have been aimed at us before but how many of us actually know the definition of a Mary Sue? We simply believe that a Mary Sue/Gary Stu is a badly-developed character, but are we aware of what defines a Mary Sue? From my personal experience, a Mary Sue/Gary Stu is a character who:
Has barely any [exploitable] flaws.
Is virtually perfect. (These two are pretty obvious)

So I heard it from the admin's mouth...... that apparently we can have lists of people in a sense of a "wall of shame" (even though http://communityops.deviantart.com/journal/Vigilante-Oriented-Groups-258215711 said we couldn't), so I'll wait until I get a response from the admin and if she says it's ok, then I'll be prompted to post to the Forums and a journal of all the admins who don't do their jobs (in the same sense that a list I reported is in) and there'll be a nice little note on the side saying that if you get one of these admins responding, to resubmit the report because obviously they're not the one for the job.So I heard it from the admin's mouth...3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Aang Inspired by Invader Zim??YES! Aang, from Avatar: TLA, was indeed inspired by something from Invader Zim!!!!! I am reading a published interview between the creators of Avatar: TLA, Mike DiMartino, and Bryan Konietzko. Bryan used to work as the art director for Invader Zim, and when the show was canceled, he decided not to look for another job--instead, he worked with his partner, Mike, as well as Nickelodeon, to talk about floating a new cartoon for the network. In this interview, Bryan makes the following statement about the Zim/Aang relation:Aang Inspired by Invader Zim??3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Mike and I went back to square one. We laid out every idea we had on the table indiscriminately, and I dug through every random personal sketch I had done during my time on ZIM. I found a drawing that I barely remembered making, a lineup of three characters: a robot cyclops monkey with an arrow on his head holding a staff, a morose-looking balding human man in his forties wearing a futuristic outfit, and a bipedal polar bear--dog hybrid.......

Checking inOk, I've obviously been terribly boring lately. I'm working on stuff, just not any stuff I can share just yet. So just to spice things up around here, I'm going to be posting a little bit of My Little Pony art. Season 2 is right around the corner, so I think it's ok now to share just a little Pony development art since it's all old and stuff. Unfortunately, they are all sketchy, uncolored pencil drawings, so even though I'll be posting them in my main gallery or now, I'll be moving them to scraps a little later.

Animation Job FAQ
Q: How can I get a job in animation?
The absolute best thing you can do to get into animation as a career is to go to art school. Not only will you learn how to draw and how to SEE, you will meet people, students and teachers alike, who will give you new perspectives and will likely be the sources of your future jobs. (My first job came from one of my teachers.)
There are several schools that have fantastic animation programs that cover all facets of the atr form. Schools like the one I attended, CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF THE ARTS, will teach you animation (2D and 3D,) character design, storyboarding, bac
The Jochannon art no-theft guaranteeI have a lot of written works here on DA: most of it, I have no plans for selling or making any money on; fan fiction, various articles and opinion pieces, Quotes of the Day, etc.; as a general rule, if you see it in my gallery, you can feel free to copy it, share it, pass it around to your friends, as long as you link back to me and give me my due credit.The Jochannon art no-theft guarantee5 years ago in Personal More Like This
The one thing you are not allowed to do with my art, categorically, without exception, is to sell it: if I find out that anyone but me has tried to make money from my work, I will take it as a personal challenge.
The same for any work I have published: if a writer publishes his or her work with me, I am taking it under my personal protection.
So don't fuck with me.
There's an old saying from the early days of the printing press: 'never pick a fight with a man who buys ink by the barrel.'
What does that mean? It means I am a publisher: I know a lot of people, a lot of people read what I write; if I find that you have stolen my work, o
Guys, stop being such idiots about SOPAFine!Guys, stop being such idiots about SOPA3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll post a journal about SOPA.
I oppose it.
- It forces major reindexing of websites in the databases of massive search engines like Google, forcing these companies to waste manpower doing housekeeping whenever the government messes something up.
- Google is already combating illegal websites and content in an identical fashion to what the government plans to do. Only difference is that instead of being on a nationwide level, Google's effects are worldwide, and Google's work is accomplished by highly skilled tech specialists (not convoluted court/legal systems) that are not supported by taxpayer money.
- As we saw through MegaUpload yesterday (great timing, A.G., do you also plan to announce you have stage 3 prostate cancer while toasting your daughter's wedding?), the government doesn't even need SOP

Watermarks (And How Not To Use Them)Doesnt it annoy you when you find a wonderful piece of art, that is all but ruined by a big, ugly and obnoxious watermark? I know that its something thats happened to me plenty of times.Watermarks (And How Not To Use Them)4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Unfortunately, on the internet, there are people who try to take credit for other peoples work, and watermarks are a relatively effective way of preventing this. But a watermark should not spoil an image; and a big, ugly obnoxious DeviantArt logo in the middle of an artwork does exactly this.
So, How does one make a watermark that doesnt spoil an artwork?
Making Your Own Watermark
For this tutorial, I will be using <a href=http://www.gimp.org/>The Gimp, a free alternative to Photoshop. The process should be similar using Photoshop, or other similar programs, but please note that this will not work with MS Paint.
The hardest part of creating a watermark is thinking of what to make. For this tutorial, I will be making a very simple watermark wit

Challenge/Edit/ I'm doing that stupid thing again where I half-finish a ton of stuff, and then get sidetracked into drawing dragons for no reason. I am getting closer to figuring out what my problem is, though.Challenge10 months ago in Personal More Like This
To the three people who watch me, be warned- I'm doing a hundred themes challenge. I've had the worst writers block for so long. I can think of stuff I want to write, but whenever I try to put pencil to paper and actually write, I end up hating it all. So, to make myself actually finish something, and hopefully figure out exactly what the problem is, I'm going to do different challenges until I get results! Number one on my list is AngieChild's. I'll update this journal with links to them as I submit (mostly as a way to keep track of my progress).
The universe I'll be using is one of my own, so it'll be all OC's.

Irken Facts and Script (review)Sometimes I just need to repost things just to review, and give info to new watchers that want it.Irken Facts and Script (review)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's some info about Irkens, to be placed out there, and what I promised I'll post for someone.
The Irken PAK is a machine or artificial intelligence attached to each Irken's spine, which holds the Irken's memory, knowledge, personality, a charging cell, atmospheric processor, and a auto-reset that will 'reactivate' an Irken if they suffer a fatal injury. If the PAK is detached from the Irken's spine, the Irken will die in ten minutes. When this happens, their PAK can be reused and placed on a new Irken body, however the knowledge of the expired Irken is drained first. It keeps track of their station and rank in life. It is also what brings Irkens to life when first born by shocking them awake. The PAK is only compatible with Irken biology. If attached to another lifeform, the PAK will destroy and kill them in just as much time as it takes for an Irken host to die without it, but no

Attend life drawing classes over the summer. Blegh.
Take a sketchbook with you everywhere you go, and fill up ten of those bad boys at the coffee shop. Pfft.
Let's be honest here. We all want to become better artists, like, right frickin' now. We don't even want to have to suffer through hour-long tutorials of some pompous snooty hack bloviating over the intricate methods of drawing eyes on YouTube. We want progress, we want improvement, and we want it on our desk in ten minutes ago!
Fine, fine, I hear ya'. While these aren't going to make an instant Leonardo da Vinci out of you, these might get you up to...ehh...Basquiat caliber. Sure, I've made tutorials, but those are more about setting up Photoshop for the sake of coloring an image, and not so much building yourself artistically. Those are more technical lessons.
