This journal exists because the other one's getting old and i needed something to keep this interesting. Also, the amateurish journal skin i created years ago annoys me and since i'm an absolute N00b when it comes to CSS i thought it would be best to finally remove it.
The last nights i was biking through our town to do nightshift (i love doing that. Not a single soul around and you realise how quiet even the civilised parts of the world can get) and while letting my thoughts flow i was grabbed by some intense nostalgia for some reason. I remembered my childhood especially and....how ridiculously naive i used to be back then. The way i saw the world, all the things i had to learn and understand first (the very anatomy of „sarcasm" for example).
I remembered some cases that appear especially wondrous to me nowadays when i think about it so i thought it would be funny if i share some of them.

Can someone explain "renders" to me?I've been bumping into this more an more so I decided to share my RAEG.Can someone explain "renders" to me?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So there is this group of people on dA who take some already existing art and cut out the backgrounds. That's all. They find some artwork, usually anime fanart, cut the background out, add their own watermark and BAM post it to their galleries as a free to use stocks without the permission of the original authors.
What's most infuriating there is almost always a disclaimer such as this one :
Oi, dumbfucks! Yes I'm talking to you. Why should anyone credit you for something that you did not create. You've contributed nothing. You've cut the background out, something that in most cases, can be done basically automatically by a computer program with a little to no human assistance.
The whole dA's category for stock renders is flooded with this shit --> http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/stockart/3drenders/
I'm sorry but I was under the impression that a render is a 2d image generated from a 3d
Well gosh darnit, son of a biscuitThis is a black Tuesday for dA. All my favourite accounts are getting banned one after another.

I will have to completely reorganise my breakfast schedule because of some overzealous admin. Usually I wake up, prepare nomnoms, settle in front of the computer and search for some morning drama. butthurtbrigade was one of my favourite places to acquire my morning dose of concentrated baawws. Now when it is gone I will be forced to actively search for the dramas elsewhere and I don't like that.
My breakfast should look like this:
And now for a few days will look like this. Which is mostly inconvenient and you should care because...umm...yes, because yes.
Quick Photoshop QuestionHey! Just a quick question to fellow photoshop users.Quick Photoshop Question1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I accidentally presses some keyboard button which created this strange mark on my work file:
It doesn't do anything and doesn't really cause any problems but it annoys me that I don't know what it is and I can't get rid of it. Does anyone know what tool made this so I can get rid of it?
Edit Well that was fast. Thanks for the answers. It was the pipet tool and I was able to drag it off the canvas while holding ctrl. Thanks!
Fur Fabric Rant X"DGod its soo hard to find good Faux fur fabric in the colors you need.. most place I got swatches from, their fabric doesn't feel anywhere closes to the soft stuff toy companies use, also end up not looking like the color in the photo.Fur Fabric Rant X"D1 year ago in Personal More Like This
you also have to make sure to ask if its knitted back or woven, because it will change the look and feel of your plush depending on what one you use. (some ppl say)
sometimes they don't have the pile size right and it ends up being way shorter then expected or cheaply made..

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. That's why I thought it would be a good idea to share some titles I owned or came across and used them through the years. Hopefully someone will find this list useful :3Anatomy books1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
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
"Human Figure" by Jose M. Parramon
Books that are pure unrefined shit and should be burned on sight:
Anything from Christopher Hart

I finally got my own printer, so I'm printing up fuck loads of book notes and things.
And also my lovely Siamese fighting fish Spike died
I have a new one, who is a beautiful dark blue and turquoise in colour. I named him Vince after Vince Noir from 'The Mighty Boosh' because he's one FABULOUS looking fish.

20 Point Commissions!YOU HEARD RIGHT MWAHAHAHA!!20 Point Commissions!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
THAT'S LIKE 25c FOR A DRAWING!!
HOWEVER: There is a catch- you could get a simple cartoon sketch BUT you might win a proper, full colour headshot..
I'm doing this because I need another 200 (though more would be even better of course..) to reach 1000 so I can give them away in a contest I'm planning
So yup- comment here with a link to the character you want, donate 20 points (or more if you're feeling generous ) and I'll link you to them as soon as they're up I'll draw any character or person and there is no limit (well, within reason..) of the number of pictures you want!
This is the kind of thing you can expect:
(I do spend more time on those who are generous hehehe XDDD)
AAAAND one person'll get a proper headshot painting I'll use a random number generator to choose, with anyone buying more than one getting more numbers.
ProgressAlright. I'm sure that some of you people know about the new series that I've posted starring Megan. Since I couldn't think of a proper name for the book, I just decided to call it, "Megan's Story." So far, on chapter 2, I think that I'm one-third of the way of being done. I should prooobably have it submitted in the next few days or so. Sorry that I can't do a chapter a day, but there's a lot to write, and not much time to write it, considering the fact that my medication only lasts for so long. So, yeah, there's the progress of Megan's Story: Chapter 2.Progress1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In all honesty, I'd have to say that it's, like, ten-billion times better than Symphrax's Massacre. Seriously, Symphrax's Massacre had no real... plot. Just a demon placed in front of a bunch of soldiers and... yeah, mindless slaughtering. It was holding me back, because it got rid of a whole lot of possibilities. For example: he kills all the people. Then what? Seriously, it's... just weird, when all the people are dead and gone. Tha

Being the...nerd I am I had to dress up when I woke up. Which was twelve, even though the kiddies don't usually come around until 4:30. I literally freaked out running around trying to dress myself up as Pinkie Pie - merely with a simple white shirt, pink polka dot skirt, custom made pink apron with pocket with the cutie mark stitched in, and my fucking fabulous pink curly wig that I miraculously managed to fit onto my head.
Though by now my wig net thing is starting to sag. I have too much hair.
Kids started to come as usual. For some reason our neighborhood, even though according to my cousin there were only around four doors (ours included) open, we got swamped by a million kids and those teenagers that only put on masks and/or hoodies and call it a costume.
They suck so they always only get one bag of the sucky brand of chips while the little ones get delicious bags of chocolate.

I've been soooo sickAnd I'm getting over it. But I've been blowing my nose so much that I've been experiencing a lot of bloody snot and minor nosebleeds. And I just had the thought that hey, I could've been painting with this blood. But I can't deal with the fact that there is snot mixed in. Even though most of it is crystal-clear, and not that repulsive yellow stuff.I've been soooo sick1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So now I wonder if the fact that I can paint with menstrual blood but not with bloody snot means I value my vagina more than my nose.
And how awful it would be if I woke up one morning and they had switched places.
And even if everyone else had had their genitals switched with their noses, it would still be awkward and unpleasant.
And you wouldn't be able to really kiss anyone in a chaste and platonic way anymore, because your fun bits would be lurking there right above your mouth.

I'm sick of...Living in this fucked up world.I'm sick of...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well..it's really difficult to explain..But right now I fucking hate this world and mostly everything on it.
I've actually convinced myself that there's a better place out there for me, somewhere like in the film Avatar or Atlantis or whatever. And it sucks because I'm stuck here on this shitty planet that we're destroying and I can't do a single fucking thing about it!
I can picture my life on a different world and it seems so...Perfect. And I don't want to live here anymore.
I want to be a positive change in this world, but I'm only a simple 18 year old with no job, no money, a fucked up family and nothing to hope for. I try to block out the negativity by helping people in need, but sometimes I need a helping hand, too.
I feel like the only way to escape every single shitty thing that has happened in this world is to kill myself. I know it sounds stupid, but I honestly don't care right now...Fuck, I don't care anymore.
