Like millions of kids growing up in the 1980s, I spent many happy hours imagining what it would be like in the rosy future when George Lucas made new Star Wars movies. It was almost as difficult and delicious to imagine as adulthood.
Return of the Jedi came out in 1983, but many, many years would pass before we had new stories. In the meantime, we created our own stories with fan art, fan

BullshitSometimes people try to pull some shit that is so shady it hurts my brain.Bullshit7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I was recently contacted by an online retailer who wanted to "promote" my artwork by putting it on their products that they sell, such as tee-shirts, prints, and who knows what else. People, by no stretch of the imagination is this promotion, this is straight up asking to use my work for free as if they're providing some sort of service to me. This is exactly the sort of thing that I would normally sell my artwork for, which is how I make my income.
To any young artists out there, please don't ever fall for some crap like this. From looking at his website, it looks like no one has fallen for it yet, but I've seen other, similar, predatory business models that have successfully exploited artists. When you make artwork you put in time and labor, and you should never give that away for free, especially not to people who are trying to make money for themselves, but aren't willing to sha

Rest in piece, Monty. We'll miss you.
Guys this does not mean the show is over. You have to remember that RWBY (just like RVB) has its own staff of animators that work the show. Its not Monty that animates the whole thing on his own. Not to mention that Miles and Kerry are the ones in charge of the writing of the show. Monty was the Creator and the one who helped push the show along. If anything the decision to continue the show will fall into the hands of Miles and Kerry.
Do not fret. I do not think they would want to end Monty's dream because of what happened. If anything the one true thing they will have to decide on is who will voice Re
Beware of malicious 'art theft' websites!I believe I made a journal like this in the past, but I have new watchers since, so I'll say it again.Beware of malicious 'art theft' websites!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are quite a few websites being called out for "art theft", where you use the website's search function, and your artwork will almost invariably come up. The current one I've seen is called "Axsoris", which sounds delightfully like my favorite pairing in Kingdom Hearts, but is in actuality a VERY dangerous website loaded with malware, so not only will I NOT provide a link, I will also warn that you don't even try to find it.
There are two important things you need to know about websites like these:
1. They did not "steal" your art. ...YET.
The art is "stolen" (if you want to call it that) as soon as you or someone else searches for it. This is some new script malware-spreading websites are using, and while the intent is to dupe unsuspecting people who wander across the website to use the search, this works EXCEEDINGLY WELL on concerned artists who worry that their ar

Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”

The game is about the size of a moderately–large photo booth, and it weighs around 1,000 pounds. To enter, you open a small door and take a seat inside the compartment. In front of you rests an almost impossibly large curved screen, as well as the left– and right–hand controls. This is the type of chamber you may enter

When his father, a representative from earth, brought his family with him on a trip to the Citadel, he thought he’d get his chance. He had no way of knowing how right he’d be. While Representative Jaron Brant was away in a meeting with Counselor Udina, his family’s hotel room is unexpectedly attacked by a gang of alien mercenaries and Evren is kidnapped. And it’s up to Commander Shepard, first human Spectre, to bring the boy home safe… before his kidnapping triggers full scale war with the Terminus.

Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a
