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

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!)3 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
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.
Rat Anatomy Compilation.Rats are very fascinating little creatures. They have small hands like humans, minus the thumbs. They are intelligent and social, and each rat has a unique personality. They can also easily stand on their hind legs, making them an easy transition to an anthropomorphic form for stories and art.Rat Anatomy Compilation.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, though, they are damn difficult to draw, and there are precious few resources for those wishing to delve into their anatomical structure (certainly me included). So I will be collecting references, both photos and drawings, that I think might be helpful to someone looking to draw my charming friend Rattus norvegicus (and perhaps some of his closest family members). I will probably add to this from time to time as I find new resources, so please feel free to suggest things that you think might be useful!

So we know what pixel art is. Great. But now how do you shade pixel art exactly? Can you just swipe your pencil tool over the image like you do with a brush tool in order to create shadows?
As we recall, real pixel art involves the careful and thoughtful placement of most, if not all, of the pixels in the image. So we need to know the correct way to add shadows and highlights to our pixel masterpieces, yes? Well here is one way to shade pixel art:
Dithering is when you pixel two or more colors in a pattern to give them a blended look. You can dither with any two colors and it will
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.

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
ZERO!! It's At ZERO!!So an amazing thing happened this evening!!ZERO!! It's At ZERO!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was on deviantART just about the ENTIRE day. I was responding to my overload of messages that I seem to have a constant ever flowing mass of. (Sorry for not posting anything for a while though, I've had so many papers due.) And then suddenly, the messages in my inbox slowly began to decimate. I refreshed the page and finally!! I got down to the DOUBLE DIGITS!! So I kept on going, responding to messages, leaving others, deleting activity messages, looking at group messages and updates, and then I refreshed again. I WAS IN THE SINGLE DIGITS!! Down to my last few messages, I replied and commented and read journals. Then I refreshed.
And to mine eyes lighted by the glow of my laptop screen, I saw it. ZERO MESSAGES. *le gasp*
I hadn't seen such a thing in a long time. I almost forgot it existed. But there is was: ZERO. That little "0" at the top of my screen. It was so... strange, out-of-place, and an oddity in my life on dA. But it was there.
Continue? 10...9...8...Ever heard of the saying 'life is a game'? I think there's more wisdom and truth to that statement than what it implies. Like the beginning of most games, you start of with minimal information of your story, you have basic skills and experience and you're given a handful of 'extra lives'. Similar to RPG's your story is shaped through your decisions during the game, will you choose to be the warrior or mage? Hero or villian? How will gain your EXP and how you improve your character's skills?Continue? 10...9...8...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As we journey through our RPG, we gain levels and with it, our character grows. Becoming stronger, more intelligent, more able. And bit by bit, we find out a little more about who we are, our story and our purpose.
Like any game, we also have to face our rivals, our 'bosses'. They don't need to take the form of a person per se, your boss can be anything, a phobia, obstacle, challenge. Sometimes we lose against our bosses and expend an extra life to have another shot at our story. What did we do wron

1.) An Orange is actually a type of berry not a fruit like how an apple is.
2.) Ants can survive underwater for 14 days.
3.) Dolphins can have the intelligence of a human 6 year old.
4.) Starving yourself can cause you to gain weight.
5.) You are more susceptible to an ear infection if you have a respiratory infection.
6.) You don't need milk to survive, humans are the only creature on the planet that drinks milk after infancy. Dark green, leafy vegetables render 4X more calcium then milk.
7.) The rays of the sun give you Vitamin D and also improve your mood.
8.) It has been proven that students who take an art class of some kind (band, choir, art, drama, etc.) have higher thinking ability then students who don't.
9.) If you have to ask yourself if it's a good idea, it's a bad idea.
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 Fearful3 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.

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

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. And I have used myself as an example of what the symbols would look like if I am in fact a regular deviant.
