Confessions - Learn from MeOkay, I'll be trying to make this simple. To explain the latest journal, and to share an experience that might help others that are in the same boat as me.
First things first: The original problem.
Ever since age 10-11 i've developed a very abstract way to see things. I've started thinking more and more how it would've been, If I could control the world. If I could be anything.
Create my worlds, live my worlds, die many times but keep the experiences before.
Rebirthing myself in another body with the experience I have now: I would be great. Phenomenal. I could fix my past mistakes.
And be so much more. Live so much more. Without fearing consequences. The world itself would be my playground.
It has fascinated me since, greatly. ( Monochrome is the artistic embodiment of this abstract emotion and thought.)
It has also been the fuel to my (soon to be developed) depression and suicidal thoughts.
I hate not having control. I hate having to feel bad, when I thought that by dying I would esca
Simple Tips for Adoptables- DON'T shade the designs. Don't make /too/ overly detailed linearts, either. (As in every single scale in its body, unless the critter is actually plated).Simple Tips for Adoptables3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You're making a design sheet, not a detailed painting. You're aiming for technicality : clear features, colors and markings, not emotional/artistic impact.
Over-detailing can appear intimidating. People usually like adoptables they can easily re-draw.
- THEME AND COLORS
It's good to have a general theme for the adoptable. Such as, for example:
cute little owl? = cute, toned-down , sweet colors.
You can also make an extremely "wtf silenthill horror" - creature with sweet colors, it adds to the "contrast".
Overall, try to keep your colors to a certain degree. Don't overuse sharp colors. Mix them together with lower tones, neutralize whatever comes out too eyeraping so it looks good.
Overall, don't overdo NOR underdo the pricing.
Protip : 80 is 1$
I personally wouldn't price anything UNDER 1$/80

I first started off on deviantART three years ago . That's around the same time I stumbled upon Harmonie's page and fell in absolute love with her art. That night, when I was browsing through "kewl digital artz" of other artists, I stumbled upon this little piece of hers http://fourth-star.deviantart.com/art/Like-a-Whirlwind-resubmit-277303722 and just stared in awe for the longest time. I still remember how shocked and surprised I was after I saw her page and browsed through her art. By three months, I had memorized almost every single description and deviation in her gallery and went through every tiny detail on her profile.( I was quite the stalker indeed oops)
She became my ultimate idol. I could comfortably say that I could've officially claimed to be your biggest fan. I went through everything she had ever posted relating to art

Thomas and John Knoll: the brothers behind the magic
Back in 1987, Thomas Knoll was working on his Ph.D. thesis as part of his studies on image processing at the University of Michigan. He had bought a new Apple Mac Plus to help with the thesis, but was frustrated by the fact the computer wouldn't display greyscale images on the monochrome monitor. This issue wouldn't stop him and so he decided to write his own code in order to be able to see the images in his new computer.
His brother John was coincidentally working for ILM (Industrial Light and Magic) on image processing at the time and discovered Thomas' code during a holiday visit. Clearly impressed by his brother's achievements, both began collaborating on a bigger applic

Kony 2012 (update)((please scroll down for the update))Kony 2012 (update)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few people messaged me regarding this. Tonight, I finally got around to watching the video, and I felt I had a moral obligation to spread the word myself.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4MnpzG5Sqc Everyone should watch this, and everyone should share this.
Until now, I'd never heard of this man. For over 20 years, he has been snatching African children from their homes, turning the boys into soldiers and the girls into sex slaves. He forces them to kill their own parents, and turns them into his own personal army.
To this day, he hasn't been captured. Most of the world don't even know his name. Until tonight, I was one of them.
Please spend 30 minutes of your time to watch this, and spread the word. If we could only remove a single evil individual from the world in our lifetime, this guy would likely be top of my list.
The internet is one of the single most powerful tools that mankind has ever had, as an international community.
