So as it turned out someone wrote the following message to me:
nah, i gave up on it ages ago... its not only hard but also frustrating and depressing... approx. 1 month for 1 min motion duration = got burned-out before i'd even finish it... so i raise up my hands in the air and just retire... don't have any spare time to make it. still have life and work to do after all... ahahaha...
Now this is not the first time I've seen something like this written and so I felt it would be a nice idea to write down the method that I use to do my animation work.
First off, to save you alot of time, this is not a tutorial on computer animation. There are plenty of excellent tutorials around on this topic all over the Internet. Rather this article gives you a method; specifically mine; on how to approach the process of producing animation. So if you're looking for a "How to" guide, this is not it.
Before anything else, let me categorically sta
Minecraft PVP VideoRemember a few weeks back when I asked if anyone wanted to join me in a Minecraft survival PVP game? Well, I recorded some of my gameplay with everyone and made a simple video. It's been uploaded to the Fresh Epic's youtube channel and you can watch it right here:Minecraft PVP Video2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been wanting to try and set up a Minecraft series of videos with other Fresh Epic members like Dayvi and Humon, but setting it all up has proved to be a little more complicated and time consuming than I thought... so I just started recording my own experiences. I'm not very good at PVP, but I enjoyed making the video and hope to make more.
If you've got some suggestions on what either I or other Fresh Epics artists could do/play in Minecraft or whatever, leave them below. Also, thumb up and like the video if you enjoyed it.

Mewthree Design Contest (with prizes) (Closed!)The-Mew3-Townside is hosting a design contest for the ultimate Fakemon, the Mewthree. The premise is simple. From August 1st to the end of August 31st we're inviting both members and non-members alike to participate in designing their very own Mewthree. There are a few rules to follow in this contest:Mewthree Design Contest (with prizes) (Closed!)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1.) Unless it is literally a black and white character, the Mewthree must be in color.
2.) It can be any medium you like!
3.) Drawing/art skills do not count here. It's all about your creative design, not your skill.
4.) The design must be new. No copies, and no old designs that you made from the past and already posted.
5.) The last image you enter will be the only one that counts, but you can enter multiples.
Here is a couple tips to help you win (you can see pre-existing designs by doing a search for 'Mewthree' so you know what not to do):
1.) Avoid certain colors. Black and red mostly. It's very common.
2.) Don't be too simple, like just change the colors of a Mewtwo.
3.) Also do

Artist WalkthroughThis walkthrough focuses on:Artist Walkthrough2 years ago in Personal More Like This
- guiding you as an artist and improving your artistic skills
So having said that... let's get started!
I have been drawing for a long time. Since I was little I would draw all the time on anything I could find. That passion for drawing and art has always stayed with me. But the problem is talent or potential will only get you so far. If you really want to become a great artist you will have to put in many hours of work. And you would preferably have someone there to guide you. Even now I am learning about basic skills I wish I had learned years ago. That is the problem of being self taught... you have to figure everything out yourself. Of course there are benefits to that too. Self taught artists are generally very motivated and passionate people. I have only come to the point where I am now just because I am passionate and slightly obsessed with drawing. But I want to know more, learn more and improve more. So that is why I am setting up this little drawi
New Pokemon Dungeon game on 3DSFinally a good enough excuse to get a 3DS, I was gonna get it anyway for Pokemon BW2, so I can use my laser gun and shoot some Pokes in my room, however it seems like Pokemon massacre was the only thing fun and unique about getting a 3DS for BW2... Well problem solved! A new Pokemon game has just been announced for the 3DS, and its none other than the popular spinoff series POKEMON DUNGEON! This time the game has a long ass name, its called Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Magnagate and the Infinite Labyrinth, a total of 14 syllables! Lucky this is just a direct translation to the Japanese game, don't know if they will translate it to something simplier with the western release. The game in the trailer looks dope, with 3D character models instead of the sprite ones from previous games, it also features the Unova Pokes heavily meaning you will have a chance of using Oshawott, Snivvy and Tepig.. I will probably use Pikachu again, no matter how many resets it takes. Umm what else? OhNew Pokemon Dungeon game on 3DS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
LimitlessI am amazing, I have and will continue to do great things, I am the right guy for the job, I am the right guy for her, I can do and be anything. Sounds arrogant doesn't it? But why should it? Why should someone limit how positively they see themselves? So that people don't think that you're a dick or so that you don't big yourself up to be something you're not? But what if you can be that something, what if you already are? People saying things like, "She/he/it is out of my league" implying you can't achieve a certain thing when someone else could, just makes my brain ache. Why can't you achieve something and even go further than what someone else has already achieved? It makes no sense to believe you're inferior to someone else in any way so long as you choose to attain their level of status in anything. Anyone can be with everyone, anyone can be anything, there are no limits as to how far you can go so long as you choose to actually go there.

The Faithfully FearfulI think there's a very fine line between love and fear, or rather, they co exist perfectly instead of being separated by a line; they are two sides of a coin. And in relationships, you're constantly tossing that coin, like heads or tails, it's a 50 50 gamble on what's going on between you and your lovely. People who put in work, time and effort and who are real lucky mostly land that love side, things are going well and you couldn't be happier. But it only takes one fear flip to shake your foundation from time to time. And like love with its allies o happiness, fun, caring and so on, fear also has his lil team; paranoia, defensive behaviour, rash actions / outbursts. Just because you experience this on that one unlucky flip of that coin doesn't mean things are going bad! understanding that love is not pure and if something negative happens between you two then it can't be true but rather, love is the outcome through hardships and happiness. being fearful is normal, staying faithful isThe Faithfully Fearful2 years ago in Personal More Like This

100%Your happiness is a great and invaluable thing! We all want to be happy, but to what extent? Some people prefer limiting their happiness on account of playing life 'safe', others risk it all to experience that maximum thrill of happiness. Pondering that in my garden as the sun just set today, it got me thinking. Relationships work very similar to that style too. Here's an idea I have...100%2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Single = 50% Happiness
In a relationship = 100% Happiness
Single = 50 Sadness
In a relationship = 100% Sadness
By deciding to live life single for a time, you're your own person, what you achieve is your own, you're 'safely' in the 50% zone at all times, never shifting, you're happy to some extent, yet something eventually feels missing. You're neither on top of the world, nor are you down in the dumps.
Deciding to share your life and become some what dependent on another person however, yields experiences and opportunities beyond any boundaries! It unlocks your potential to be happy completely and

EVO Results and Twisted Princess Wendy!!!Hey everybody! I hope you all had a great weekend!!! I know I did because the EVO Championship Series (biggest fighting game tournament in the world) was this weekend. Unfortunately, I was a stream monster this year but that didn't take away from the hypeness of the matches. The Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament was intense all the way through. I loved it! I was upset to see Combofiend lose but he's still one of the best players in my opinion. And Filipino Champ's Dormmamu is awesome! He can be of somewhat questionable character sometime but his Marvel skills are on point. As for Super Street Fighter IV, I felt the matches leading up to top 8 were more exciting than the top 8 themselves. Oh well. All that matters though is there was a huge representation of different countries in the finals as well as character diversity which was really awesome to see.

First, because always will be there supporters and haters, I can understand that. But when people at beginning come as "supporters" and "friends", but for unknown reasons, after some time, this people just stab you in the back, this is the worst. Also, many people don't have enough guts for tell you directly but spreading hate to people and then, without reason, unknown people begin to hate you. I really don't care when unknown people hate you, but when are people that you know, told you good things in the past or you made favors to them, is just disgusting.
Some people probably know what I'm talking about, and this is something that I really didn't care at beginning but because the massive hate spread, suddenly I begun to receive much hate from people and somebody told me from where came this h

Today is the blackout of many websites in protest against the absurd law SOPA and PIPA that support censorship and is a danger against internet freedom. This law could affect not only United States but in a future, other countries if this isn't stopped. Many sites like Wikipedia, Google, Twitter, Facebook, etc, are putting a message of blackout and ask U.S. people to sign petitions to the congress people against this law. These days this law has been discussed in the congress and in The White House, Obama's administration is against this law but they just "freezed" it but not stopped entirely yet. I think MMDers we can do something too, you can see dA is supporting this measure too, you can see the "debate SOPA" thing above.

Symbol(s) for the non Premium DeviantsHello my Ryceballs. So eversince DA's recent symbol changes, I have been hearing a lot of complaints. Mostly about how regular non premium members don't even get a symbol. It makes them feel like they are not important. Its ok I hear ya I hear ya. And you know me, I am all about the people. Ry-Spirit cares. So I thought about this a lot and try to think of an appropriate symbol that best suits our non premium friends, at the end I came up with a symbol... WELL I say a symbol but its more like a string of symbols. I feel like this is the only option for it to work.

Opinions pleaseOpinions please?Opinions please2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So me and my friend Anthony are doing a cover of Ah, it's a Wonderful Cat's life, and of course I am going to be drawing a PV for it. The thing is, it'd be much easier to just trace right over the original drawings and draw ourselves onto it (although less sketchy and junk), but I know there's probably people who'd be totally against that Drawing an entire PV for it will take a really long time and I don't think I'd have the time for that, since I like to go all out with stuff like this, and tracing it would be much easier. Of course, I'd credit the original artist ect. ect.
:I So.. would it bother anyone if I traced the PV? I've seen in many times and it hasn't seemed to bother anyone, but since this is the DeviantART community and all and knowing how deviantART feels about tracing.. what are your guys' opinions?
ColoursOur ability to reminisce, ponder and imagine is such an amazing gift. I was walking through the local field today taking in how vibrant the day looked. The grass was tinted a pale yellow as if high lighted from the sun, the trees kept their green despite the up coming autumn season and the sky was such a deep blue with just the right amount of white clouds. The scene looked as though it was art on a canvas brought to life. The idea I was walking through a creative art piece made it almost effortless for me to enter and paint my own creative thoughts in my day dream state.Colours2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm a dreamer, so it only made sense my head was up, eyes fixated on the sky as I let my mind wander. As I did, my mind instantly took me to my most cherished past memories, the things I attach my identity to and the future I intend to make a reality. While I did all of this, all I could think of was her name and how easily she fit right in with my cherished memories, attachments and my future.
