Things you should never ask an Artist to doI write this to not spark a debate or judgement, only to share my personal opinion and experience in hopes of benefiting you and offering insight to people thinking about hiring an artist.Things you should never ask an Artist to do3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Things you should never ask an Artist to do:
1. Free Work.
Do I really have to explain this one? You wouldn't walk into any other business offering a service and ask for free clothes or a burger right? No, you pay for them without question and they take a lot less creativity, time to make and cost a lot less. Why ask people to work for free on something you couldn't make yourself? If you believe in your vision, then I suggest find funding for it to pay the people doing the work for you. This goes for family as well, don't get me wrong, I love my family and enjoy doing something for them but it means so much more when I OFFER to do something for free than when it's expected. Let the artist decide whether or not they want to give their time for free without asking them, as a rule treat them with res
What James Vega hatin' says about youThere are many factors that make a particular character resonate with a particular type of person. I find it fascinating when a character, especially one that gets so little actual story time in the Mass Effect games like James Vega, inspires such vitriol in an engaged audience. Everywhere his story is discussed, someone posts a nasty comment that they hate him or call him names.What James Vega hatin' says about you2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I'm not arguing that the game creators didn't drop the ball on his story. He could have been much more interesting. But the qualities that Vega's fans see in him don't go skin-deep. Even his physical appearance hints at a hidden depth, which almost always affects other areas of life and character development. This is the reason why I started writing the James Vega origins story, The One That Got Away, to show how these shallow elements, hinted at in the game and the boring Homeworlds comic, could have been made into a really interesting story and likeable character.

The Leviathan and the Death of HopeWarning: contains spoilers concerning the Leviathan DLC, Mass Effect 3 and my notions about what good writing is. Duh.The Leviathan and the Death of Hope2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are moments when I wish I could just turn off my writer's sense at a whim and "just go with it". Ignore that a story in a game, or a movie, or a book, or a TV show is flawed in my opinion, just to enjoy the views, get an adrenaline rush from all the flashing colors and have fun. And truth be told - it usually works that way... Just not for the universes I tend to care about. If you got me invested in your franchise, I will expect you to deliver the goods. 'Tis how the cookie crumbles.
Which brings me to the Leviathan DLC. I've seen a lot of positive reviews and emotions towards it popping up all over the internet before I was even able to check it out myself. My hopes were high, and, initially, I loved it. It had a sense of exploration Mass Effect 3 was seriously lacking and the TGES Mining Base really reminded me of Noveria... It was spot on.

Mass Effect 3 Mercer ModFor those of you that STILL don't know why I've not been doing anything productive recently it's because I've been working on a mod for ME3 that replaces Kaidan Alenko with Alex Mercer.Mass Effect 3 Mercer Mod5 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is starting to feel like an important thing… so I gave it it’s own tag on my tumblr blog #ME3MercerMod
Check out the progression of the mod there.
I’m attempting to make a link to said tag on my blog… it appears that tumblr needs time to figure this shit out.
in the meantime I had a small realization while working out bits and pieces of the mod…
because of the stupidly inefficient way ME3’s PCC system works, Kaiden’s armor retexture available in the N7 Collector’s edition/Digital Deluxe Edition etc. is actually a completely separate mesh along with the retexture. What does this mean? It means I can replace it with a whole new mesh and set of textures… and I FUCKING D

From the Personal Memoirs of Garrus Vakarian.
It was one of those conversations that I wish, in retrospect that I had never really started. Jane didn’t like me bringing it up and I didn’t really like finding out something that I had always suspected. It ended well, but not because I won the ... argument.
It began innocently; she was washing a teacup at the kitchen sink. I came up behind her and nuzzled her neck. She squirmed away, skipped over to the kitchen door and with a lascivious smile beckoned me into the yard with her index finger.
“If you want it, catch me if you can.” Jane said and sauntered away out into the yard.
I’d been lead on this merry chase many times before; all through the house and half the yard. The last time, we ended up making love on the potting ta

Axios is interesting, powerful, flawed, sympathetic, and could go either way on the paragon/renegade scale. He is something completely different, yet he fits into the ME universe beautifully. Dinky-Mew has clearly worked hard on creating this solid, realistic, plausible, character, with huge potential to be developed in many ways.
For Res specifically, his mind trick is going to be delicious, and have some unexpected consequences when he meets Shep. Axios is both an abused victim and a spoilt brat, not a common combination. He has much learning to do, a
James at 16In this weeks' chapter we follow an important day in the life of James at sixteen years old. To this end, I've gone back on what I said before (that I wasn't going to try to find concept pics of James at every phase of life) and now bring you a picture of what I think James looks like at this age. Incidentally, I think this is much closer to James than the last one I chose. Teenagers change a lot anyway.James at 162 years ago in Personal More Like This

Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank***WARNING: THIS IS A SUPER LONG AND DETAILED POST!***Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get a lot of questions on how waselreins and I did the body makeup for our demon sisters cosplays. So here I'll tell ya'll how we did it, in addition to the whole story about the limo entrance. With pictures!!
On Saturday morning, I woke up at 5 AM to get ready for Kneesock. The limo was going to pick us up at 12:45 PM and I had to help the others get ready so I woke up the earliest to do as much of myself as I could. After the necessary prepping (shower/wash face/brush teeth/moisturize) I put in my contacts and wig cap first.
I used Ben Nye MagiCake Aqua Paint in red for my face and ears. I was told afterwards it's pretty bad for your skin so next time I'm gunna use Kryolan or Mehron, but for Fanime Ben Nye worked perfectly fine for me. Here's a bit more info on it here: http://stageandtheatermakeup.com/bnmagiaq.htm
Instead of water to spray onto the red makeup I used LiquiSet and a foundation brush to apply it to my face.

I guess some of you might have already seen this in loish 's journal, but I think we should spread this around.
Basically, this community is using a BUNCH of artists' works (my has already been taken down, since I've asked and linked to it), but from those I've recognized the community still uses loish, andrahilde , Apofiss, andaglas and a whole lot of other DA artists' drawings for their purposes, without A SINGLE CREDIT.
They even make (made) magnets for selling using the works.
More of that, as I've been trying to contact the admins of this group, and I've been told that "Oh, don't worry, nobody was making millions using your work" and "Don't worry, there were only a few magnet sells and the community doesn't do it anymore blah blah". As I tried to make them understand they have NO RIGHTS for using other deviants' works whatever the hell they want without giving the original artist credit I got told that " I do never erase the artist

Advice for holding your own art exhibitionHey everyone,Advice for holding your own art exhibition2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I recently was contacted about advice on hosting a show to exhibit your work.
I thought it would be really useful thing for you guys to know this because at some point or another you will have the option to exhibit work to the public. Exhibitions are a great tool to market yourself, and your work to potential clients and art buyers.
Remember...Exhibitions should never be scary or intimidating as long as you are focussed.
Galleries, like everything else, are a business. They rely upon the custom of exhibitors to ensure their space is always looking top-notch and full of cool and interesting stuff.
I have created a few tips that can make your exhibition experiences rewarding and hassle free.
1. No Artwork – No Show
Before deciding to go through with the exhibit, an artist should always make sure their work is ready.
2. Doing it solo, or as part of a group?
One of the biggest things to ask is if you want to exhibit as a solo artist, or as part of a gro
