I want to let you know that I have more than I need now to take care of the major things-- I've sent a print to the artshow already and I should be able to go to the doctor by the end of next week. As strange as it sounds, please allow me to earn whatever else money I could use--I will still open up commissions and hopefully earn enough to make a trip to California for the Korra Artshow thats well into March (so I have a good amount of time, I just have to handle the work).
If it means anything at all, take all my thanks. Keep being the amazing people that you are; this includes those who shared their hard earned money with me as well as those who shared their words of support. I will brag about you guys to everyone I know lol, your support means so much, you have no idea. It just makes me want to work harder and do better and be better. The only wa

The power's back onMy apartment just regained power today after the hurricane. It's been a pretty interesting four days.The power's back on3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I actually ran through the storm twice on Monday. It was pretty intense and terrifying and you should seriously never do that ever.
While the power was out I reread a the first Lemony Snicket book, learned how to paint (which I'm still terrible at), cooked all of my food so it wouldn't go bad, slept in three different places that weren't my bed, played hide and seek with a bunch of Filipino children, ate an entire jar of peanut butter by itself, took two broken street signs, made friends with the power guys, and became extremely frustrated with my phone for accepting texts on limited cell service but not being able to send them.
Alot of Jersey City still doesn't have power, so I guess I lucked out. Still, it was pretty fun not being distracted by computers and all that for a while.

This Saturday (check your local listings) here in the U.S., YOUNG JUSTICE: INVASION returns once more to Cartoon Network. With all the drama this well-made series has had to suffer behind the scenes, it would be no wonder if the fans have long since deserted it. It was never fair. It was never respectful. But it was also never within the control of Warner Bros Animation. C'est la vie. So, if you're still interested in the adventures of our Team of young and just heroes, please do tune in again, and settle back for the fun.

New deviantART ThumbnailsHey folks!New deviantART Thumbnails3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may remember a while back we showed off some brand new thumbnails in #hq's Journal. Well, after many weeks of porting and tweaking based on community feedback, we finally got these brand new thumbs ready for beta testing!
The new thumbnails
UPDATE (May 19, 2012): Based on feedback received, we've updated the new thumbnails to be justified. Thumbnails are now spaced out across the rows, making them flush against the left and right sides of the page. When a browser's window is too small, justification cannot happen without leaving larger awkward spaces. In these cases, justification is turned off and thumbnails become left aligned. We think these changes present the most appealing interface for both cases.
For those of you who didn't see the new thumbs when they were previewed a month back, here's a re
Beware The BatmanI caught the first episode of Beware the Batman.Beware The Batman2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What a pile of rancid, charm-free, cheap-looking, poorly written, spineless, generic pap.
To start with, I hate the character design. There's nothing memorable about anyone you see on screen, with the exception of Batman's strange cranial deformation. It looks like someone's been hitting him over the head with a mallet, which is entirely possible given that Alfred has turned into Cato, from The Pink Panther: randomly attacking his employer to keep him on his toes.
And then we have the villains. Batman has, arguably, the best Rogues Gallery in fiction. It's that which makes his stories so interesting, not the brooding. You'd think with the opening episode, they'd want to start strong, or at least hint at some major threat, lurking in the shadows.
Instead, they give us a man dressed as a pig and a frog-man that burps.
And what's with the f**king laser guns?! If any one franchise is ideal for carrying an anti-gun

Simple Life Drawing tipHey all,Simple Life Drawing tip1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Through helping students at CDA, one thing that I see a lot of is the tendency to just draw when the model poses.
To be honest you will get less done drawing this way. It's also important to learn how to sharpen your pencil properly.
When the model poses, take about 30 seconds and observe. If you've been practicing your mental manikin then this will
be easier. Starting with what is the model doing? Which way is the head oriented? Which shoulders is higher? Where
is the pinch and stretch side? Etc...
Doing this gives you a battle plan, even before you make a mark on your drawing pad. You'll be surprised at how much more
you edit your marks when you start putting down lines. Remember that even before you get likeness, lighting, form, etc.
your base lay in should be clear. Meaning that anyone who looks at it should be able to tell what's going on.
There will be examples of this soon and also in the BAD drawing notes book
Book 2 for later this year? + MORE!At a Nick Animation press event, some news more news was released about various nickelodeon animated shows including The Legend of Korra.Book 2 for later this year? + MORE!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, nothing much was released save for that the date was coming later this year, and an exclusive clip (I'm hoping somebody will upload it somewhere, if anybody finds it please link in the comments!)
While this isn't much news, keep in mind that the last time we got a year date it wasn't actually so far away from the actual date. Even so, "later this year" could even still refer to as late as next fall, or even winter. Still, it's nice to know it's coming this year!
"Exclusive clip?" Yeah, you read that right!

I'm not gonna lie, when I was writing that Journal yesterday I wasn't expecting by a long shot to see such a deeply touching solidarity from all of you people ;_; Like, all the advertising, support and stuff, is something that I haven't even thought about AT ALL.

Things I Wish Comics Would Stop DoingLater this week SYAC will be posting a series of “Things I Wish Comics Would Stop Doing” strips. This is the start of what might be an ongoing series within SYAC in general, though it really depends on how well it goes over...Things I Wish Comics Would Stop Doing1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In the past I’ve drawn my own artwork to explain things, but that’s always resulted in people accusing me of not knowing what I’m talking about and demanding actual sources. I don’t like the idea of using actual sources because my criticism of these techniques could easily be misinterpreted as criticism against specific artists, which is entirely the wrong idea. A lot of the time, these are pervasive techniques used throughout the mainstream (American) comic industry and are not the fault of any one particular artist. It’s more of a condemnation of perpetuating “bad habits” than anything else.
As a result, this new batch of “Things I Wish Comics Would Stop Doing” strips will feature actual artwork
'I Need Feminism' because it's funnyResponse to by CorporateRockWhore'I Need Feminism' because it's funny1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I need feminism because
It’s acceptable to call me a slut.
You do realize that you are calling prostitutes inferior? If there is nothing wrong with being a prostitute, there is nothing wrong with being called one. I don't think there is anything wrong with being a prostitute, personally, so long as no coercion is involved.
If we consider the meaning "Slut is a term applied to an individual who is considered to have loose sexual morals or who is sexually promiscuous" then the problem is even less obvious. Stop treating it as an insult and just say "Yeah. So what, Mother Theresa?"
I need feminism because
It’s okay for a guy to slap my butt.You are talking about frivolous sexual harassment lawsuits, rights? I've had my butt slapped by girls. If they are crossing the line, I tell them.

Witchhunts among artists.I was very reluctant on writing this journal, as I often just want to inspire and write uplifting things. This topic is a little less so.Witchhunts among artists.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
The word 'Witchhunt' comes from a time were some women got accused for being witches because of their beauty or their way to modern way of living (being a single mother or non-christian in times where that was absolutely outrageous). Those women would get ridiculous tests to proof their humanity from which they ultimately would die (burning on the fire stake or getting drowned in a river.) The fact that they did not survive it would proof that they are human and not a witch. We all know that there are no immortal people.. so no woman had ever survived it.
Now when we talk about Artist Witchhunts it's pretty similar, an artist would get accused of using unorthodox methods or plagiarism. No one likes plagiarism and

“For the 2013-14 season, the network will also roll out new episodes of returning hit animated series, including season two of The Legend of Korra, SpongeBob SquarePants, The Fairly OddParents, Winx Club, T.U.F.F. Puppy, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness and Robot and Monster.”

Tip of the DayMany times if we don't know how to do something or achieve something we feel it's not doable. Successful people will find a way even if they don't know the answer at first. Sometimes the best way to find the right way is to try as many ways as you can think of. The road to success is paved with failures. Stay positive!Tip of the Day4 years ago in Personal More Like This
