Tutorials and techniquesQuite a lot of people keep asking me for tutorials and to be honest I see no point in creating yet another strip on how to paint skin/clothes/light/carrots/whatever. There are so many of them out there that it would be simply a waste of time to sit and basically copy what's already been told.Tutorials and techniques4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Instead, I've decided to make a compilation of different tutorials and charts that I personally use to learn how to paint.
The most important thing you need to learn even before starting to read a tutorial is that all walk-throughs are meant for you to understand how things work. My point is that after reading and later practicing a tutorial called 'how to paint a glass duck' you should be able to paint not only a glass duck but also anything else made of glass. You should concentrate on understanding the rules and patterns instead of trying to copy what you see on the image. Otherwise you'll end up knowing how to paint only a few things from only one perspective and one lightning pattern.

TPP The Dirtiest Trade Deal You've Never Heard OfUpdate July 3TPP The Dirtiest Trade Deal You've Never Heard Of2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Good morning, following your comments I messaged the EFF, foundation responsible of defending your rights in the internet to let them know that their petition is archived, since I'm not sure if they are aware of that. In meantime I updated the petition link with another one available on their website, which you can find in here: Contact Your Lawmakers and Speak Out Against the TPP (U.S.) It's in a form of auto-generated message on the right side of the website, you can edit it to your own needs of course or write it on your own, it's a nice solution though if you don't know how to put it all in pretty words. It basically covers up your concern about TPP as a consumer and constituent, asks for releasing the secret documents so they could be available to public and asks for the right to have any input in TPP agreement (remem
RaroOdio la palabra ''raro'',Raro2 years ago in Personal More Like This
esto es raro,
me siento rara,
todo es raro.
Porque simplemente no podéis disfrutar y ser felices?
porque no os dejáis llevar ? ,
tan solo quiero ser feliz,
tan solo no quiero estar sin vosotros.
Por mucho que me pregunte no os lo preguntaré,
ya he sido la persona que agobia,
persona que ya no quiero ser,
os queréis distanciar de mi? , adelante.
Yo me canse de luchar con mi cabeza,
de intentar saber que es lo mejor para mi,
lo mejor para todos,
y no tengo respuesta.
No os dejo ir porque quiera,
pero si lo único que nos mantiene juntos es mi terquedad,
no quiero, no os quiero mantener a mi lado,
aunque seáis importantes para mi.
Hay otras que quiero mantener a mi lado,
vosotros me importáis mas de lo que pensáis,
pero quiero que estemos bien todos,
simplemente no se si tenéis ganas de verme.
Simplemente, no se si queréis algo de mi,

I'm (Not Really) Back.I'm on Prolonged Hiatus.I'm (Not Really) Back.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
All right, I apologize for my prolonged, unannounced hiatus. I have been doing a lot of stuff for college, and at the same time, I had been doing a lot of soul-searching (coming up with new ideas for Solitude and One Less Lonely Gurl) and Bible studying as well. I realized that my mind has lapsed a bit in some of my discussions with those who have commented on the controversial stamp I made about the issue of the Bible and homosexuality. Furthermore, I had been preaching the fact that the Bible does not actually condemn homosexuality to my friends IRL, and so far, I'm succeeding. But I must tell all of you that I am but a beginner in this study about this pertinent issue in this era of Church history, and I have not much information about the topic yet.
By the way, I have heard what the Pope himself says about this issue via a comment on my profile by one wintersofboredom.

On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.

What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

Hope you all are enjoying this festive seasons, and may the weather be fair to all of you in the northern hemisphere.
I just want to let you know that I will be postponing any artworks or activities in DeviantArt for the time being until further notice. My father has just been admitted to the hospital in a critical condition.....so I will be flying straight back home to Indonesia in the next 12 hrs to see him. After that, i will have very little time to access my account once I'm there.
For anyone that has their requests pending that I can remember so far, I will have to drop it for now and would like to apologize for failing the commitment. As for any comments, replies, correspondences and notes, I will try my best to get back to you but i cannot really promise it will be anytime soon .
I hope and pray that everything will turn out good and better, and that may this month gives us plentiful blessings and health
Until then, wishing you all to have good days ahead.
