Important News on the MLP ComicIt looks to be pretty official, according to our editor, that the MLP comic has been pushed back two weeks to Nov 28 for street release date.Important News on the MLP Comic3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before anybody gets upset (like one jerk on Twitter did), keep in mind the scope of this production: This is not a fanmade comic as some seem to think it is: This is a fully licensed comic book from a major Comic publisher done in cooperation with Hasbro. It is also one of the most highly anticipated comics for the entire fall/winter schedule. As such, we'd rather do it well than do it fast.
The orders for this book have far exceeded what was first anticipated, so a little more padding in the schedule is going to help to ensure the product can meet the demand
I also want to remind everyone: I am NOT The distributor/publisher... I just draw it. You cannot purchase the book directly from me. Here's some ground I've covered a number of times, but I keep getting asked... so here we go:
1. WHERE IS IT SOLD? This will be sold along all the other comics

Movie Talk: Pacific Rim ReviewAh, yeah, Guillermo Del Toro. To me, his name was always connected to Pan's Labyrinth, being the first Del Toro-movie i ever watched and which was indeed pretty impressive. It was later then when i realised that he also caused Hellboy and other things that would seem unlikely at first but – whatever; this guy got my interest after all and thus it was just a matter of fact that my ears would go all alert when there was news about Pacific Rim. (but before i start the babbling: why even talk about that at all? Well, because i simply love movies. And cinema. And i just watched it. And because i enjoy sharing thoughts. Duh.)Movie Talk: Pacific Rim Review2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, what's the story.
Somewhen in the near future giant alien creatures emerge from a breach within the depths of the pacific and overrun the coasts. Thus, humanity adapts to the new danger and creates giant robots called Jäger, driven by two humane pilots to fight these critters. The story is introduced by ex-pilot Raleigh Becket off screen and even though the au

Our superficial societyLet me begin with a short anecdote:Our superficial society3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was in a hotel room with friends, on the last day of what had been, until then, an amazing holiday. Much like this journal, the topic of conversation quickly turned to girls and relationships.
We somehow began talking about bases, and to which one each of us had gotten. For those who have yet to come across the term, it's a baseball analogy where 'first base' is kissing, followed by progressively more intimate actions, and there are no prizes for guessing what 'a home run' signifies. I announced, with neither pride nor shame, that I have yet to reach first base at the ripe age of 17; this was received with a mixture of shock and pity, which baffles me. One then went on to say that he should set me up with one of his female friends, which I outright dismissed.
The story gets mildly more interesting here. Fast forward a few hours: after having visited the bar, we return to the hotel room, with one of my friends managing to get himself incredibly drun

Same game, New mapMy Dear Denizens,Same game, New map1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I am sad to report that I have been greifed nearly ten times. My farm animals have been repeatedly slaughtered, my home ruined over and over again, my chests smashed, and my hard earned items taken. I tried to ride out the continual wave of vandalism and theft, but after one particularly horrific attack I am very sorry to say I lost my patience. In creative mode I removed all traces of my farm, freed the animals I still had left, and moved to Jeff’s hotel.
Sadly, that too was attacked. Though thanks to you, my dear Denizens, I did not see the damage because you had repaired it. This is a burden you should not have to bare, and I am sorry I have not been able to protect you from this.
I could give you excuses here, telling you why I’ve not been better, like how I wasn’t ready to take on the job of running a server, or how I don’t know Command Block code, but the reality is that I have simply tried to ignore

Ni hao, everyone. Allow me to introduce you all to my MOC and travelling partner, the Elephant!
Hey guys. This keyboard is far too wide for my little legs.
The Elephant and I have spent the past two weeks on holiday in China. I thought I'd share what happened!
I hate to start with something uninteresting, but the travel to Beijing was relatively uneventful. A brief stop in Zurich followed by The Avengers on a screen too small to do it justice… yeah, nothing of note.
Oh goodness, the journey was horrible. For a start, I didn't even know I was going until the night before; my shelfbud

You are always welcome to draw something for Katie, but I'm no longer offering art back. She is better now.
Please consider ing this journal if you support it; it may get more exposure, which would give Katie more art.
...So, as my scrap-watchers know, my little sister Katie is sick. (I mentioned it here for those who wanted to leave her a comment.)
Well, her cough worsened and today she is in the hospital with Dad. Her fever hit 105 degrees Fahrenheit, but it is lower now and she is getting the best care that they can give her. It's pneumonia again, and she'll probably be in the hospital for several days before she can come home.
Among other things, she took her Kindle Fire with her, so she has internet access—i.e., I can e-mail her a link to this journal.
Edit: Katie's internet access at the hospital is not very great, so she will be seeing all these pictures when she arrives home! Dad believ

I will be leaving dA for two years..Hey my awesome watchers and friends!I will be leaving dA for two years..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, yes, like the title says, I will be leaving dA for two years as of the 18th of April, so in about a week. This is a tough decision, as dA has become an important part of my life, because I am actually trying to build up a living with my art. But you should know, that I am a Mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.. ) and I am 18, close to 19, so I am going on a mission. That means I will be going to the Alpine region (Switzerland, Austria, South-Germany) and talk to the people about what I believe in. You have to know, that this is something I carefully considered and I have a strong belief in God and so I want to share the joy my religion has brought me. The mission will be for two years and I wont have the time to upload any art to dA. My sister PixieCold will keep you up to date through journals on my page here, so you know what I am doing and how my life is going!

Hero Faffory Live ActionYou read that right! I am pleased to announce that Hero Faffory is now moving to YouTube!Hero Faffory Live Action2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Gone are the days of 8-panel limits and cramming text into every corner! With video format I can finally introduce elements of speed, sarcasm and sound!
Of course, I'm not just going to bore you with the details! You want to actually see this change in action, right? I've taken the liberty of making a pilot episode, which you can view here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgMsimFBvOQ&feature=youtu.be
So, just to clarify, this was nothing more than an April Fools' prank. Hero Faffory is going to stay as a comic for the foreseeable future, not a video or stopmotion or animation or anything like that. Far too complicated and time-consuming, in my opinion. As if the date, timestamp of 1:04 and the massive 'April Fools' sign at the end of the video weren't obvious enough, right?
That said, I did really enjoy making the video. I assure you, the link is not a virus or scre

Bionicle ElementsSo I'm reading through the list of fan elements in the Bionicle universe that aren't official elements (for those who don't know, Nuika, my self MOC is a Toa of Kinetics, and that element was never accepted as canon, but it is canon in my version of the universe) and I wanted to broaden the variety of elements in the world. So anyway, looking through this list, there's a couple of good ones... but loads of fucking retarded ones...Bionicle Elements3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Blood... Seeing as they're mostly mechanical...
Ditto... Fucking what? How could you control that?!
Love... Mata Nui and the planeteers apparently...

Divine Energy... Basically Superman on roids. Someone got a bit too carried away with their Mary Sue self MOC

7 TIPS FOR THE 21-YEAR-OLD ME by Bobby Chiu
When I was a student in college working on my skills as a character designer, I’d had periods where I would sit at my desk working as hard as I could but having little to show for my efforts at the end of the day. I remember sitting there surrounded by blank pieces of paper, trying to come up with an amazing style that nobody had ever seen before. I would do one drawing and not be satisfied, so I would lay a new piece of paper over it, re-draw it with slight changes to features here and there. This would still not be good enough so I would put another piece of paper over my revision, make more minor adjustments trying to perfect this new style I was searching for.
I did this for weeks on end, tweaking and polishing over and over, working hard every day. But in the end, did I come up with a brand new style, something amazing that
Anatomy booksI'm frequently asked how I learned to draw and the answer is very simple - a large part of my knowledge is self taught from books.

Books that are awesome:
"Anatomy for the Artist" by Sarah Simblet
"The Artist's Guide to Animal Anatomy" by Bammes Gottfried
Books that are good:
" Drawing the Head and Hands" by Andrew Loomis
"Figure Drawing for all it's Worth" also by Andrew Loomis
Books that are ok but from the time perspective I do not recommend them:
"How to Draw Heads and Portraits" by Jose M. Parramon
