I think it's safe to say my hiatus is over. I would hate for something unexpected to happen but I am drawing everyday and I can get on the internet again which is nice..."
Well...something did happen. Hurricane Sandy happened lol And luckily, all that happened in my area was a power outage. The winds were pretty ridiculous and they knocked over trees and branches and powerlines so I couldn't get online or anything. I also had a picture to upload for Halloween but now its late...but I'm grateful that these things are the least of my worries...other areas and people have been pretty devastated by the hurricane.
I hope everyone else who was affected by the hurricane is ok. I'll upload any pictures and update my commission journal once I get the chance.

Why people need to stop...... whining about female warrior and super heroine character designs.Why people need to stop...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Answer: In short, because they sound like whiny wannabe-feminist with major complexes and no knowledge of how art in a professional level works.
So a bit of background story, as some of you know, I was mostly oriented to fine arts, this has been changing progressively with time, and now, I'm more focused to character design and marketable illustrations. This has led me to a lot of research and self instruction via internet. But with the good, comes the bad. I wanted to write this entry for a while, because thanks to lack of experience I used to agree with criticizing the industry standards when it comes to representation of female characters, huge boobs, skinny frame, bikini armor stereotype.
And then, I stumbled upon the famous eschergirls tumblr account. http://eschergirls.tumblr.com/

Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!Years and years ago, at the beginning of my illustration career, a veteran illustrator got mad at me, and at a number of my colleagues, for charging too little. We all protested loudly. "But, dude," we said, "we are not veterans like you, with years of experience and stunning portfolios to back us up. We are newbies, and we need to eat, too, so we'll take what we can get. We're not in direct competition with you, so why do you care?" Then, we added, with great smugness, "Oh, and our rates are the current industry standard, so pthbbbbbt!"Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Except more than a decade's gone by, and I see that my colleagues and I are now veterans, with our own pretty portfolios and lengthy CVs. We have become the indignant illustrator's direct competitors, and we're not earning that much more than we were at the start of our careers. We're certainly not getting what he did, at the height of his. And we did this to ourselves. Oh, sure, we're not solely re

How to approch gesture drawingA mass approach to gesturesHow to approch gesture drawing5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Gesture drawing is often overlooked as simply an exercise to warm-up for long term drawings but I think rather, that it is an invaluable tool for training the eye to understand anatomy and the dynamic flow of a pose. If you can train your mind to capture the movement and balance of a pose, and the underlying anatomy that allows the pose to take place, you will improve your long term drawings. Often what students fail to understand in a gesture are the same things they fail to understand in a long term drawing. It is important to understand the dynamic balance of the pose, where the body contracts and expands, where the weight of the body rests and where the line of equilibrium flows. If this is not understood in the gesture, you will produce drawings that are stiff and lacking in life. Gestures are a great tool to study the model and produce quick sketches that are fluid and dynamic which hopefully will loosen up your long term drawings. It is al

Are you being honest with yourself?As part of becoming good at something you need to be able to reflect upon yourself. Judge your own abilities and work and consider the possibility that what ever you have been doing it wrong all along. Or perhaps you're actually being to hard on yourself and you're better than your conscious is telling you.

Signs that you might overestimate your current skills.

I can totally do this too.
This is not so hard, I can do this faster.
My work is way more interesting.
It's not fair that this person gets way more attention than I do.

Your support has been incredible, myself and my family can't thank you enough, the notes and letters I have received from many of you in regards to the tutorial have honestly been touching and inspirational - it's been an experience unlike anything I expected to find in this business.
It is that very experience which has prompted me to come forward and lay my cards on the table and finally expose what has been transpiring behind the facade that is being presented to you by these institutions, because you deserve to know the truth for your own financial and intellectual protection.

FAQ What happens if the other self dies? / Can my character die?FAQ1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Yes, it is possible for your character to die. However, to avoid characters dying left and right, character deaths will have to be discussed with a mod first.
If the other self dies, then your character will lose their memories of any events that relate to Go Taisho,
and be incapable of fighting on. You may demote them to a npc if that happens.
How many characters can I have?
Currently, members can only have one character. Secondary characters may be available in the future, if you have enough points accumulated.
Is it possible to have a character of more than one element?
At the moment it is impossible.
How many weapons am I allowed to have?
New and applying members can only have one weapon.
But once you have accumulated enough points, a secondary weapon for your character will be available in the shop for purchase.

In the world of Generation 48, the setting takes place in Tokyo and in the nation of Japan. Oracle, a talent agency works in the same area as many of our affiliate groups such as Tachikawa, Furuya, and Yukimura high school, placing our characters into the same universe. Members of Generation 48 are allowed and encouraged to interact with other affiliate group OCs and members in order to build a community of roleplayers who come together to have fun.
