Knew I would fall if I tried
So I held back for a while
You pushed me so hard, I had to go
I tried to be strong, then I failed
I would like to say this
Just in case you didn't know
Well your soul is fractured
I know what it's like as well
I have sold my soul
I traded it for hollow gold

Definition Of a FriendYour best friend is the one who's laughed with you, cried with you, and despaired with you. Your best friend is the one who loves and accepts all the strange or quirky things about you. Your best friend is the one who's shirts are stained with mascara from your tears. Your best friend is the one who can look at you and have a whole conversation without moving their mouth once. Your best friend is the one who's seen you at your worst, and said you were the best. Your best friend is the one who fought for and defended you-even when they knew you were wrong. Your best friend is the one who can honestly say "I love you." and not think twice about how it was taken. Your best friend is the one who crashes on your couch at four in the morning. Your best friend is the one who kicked you in the ass and straightened you out when you were about to make a big mistake. Your best friend is the one who knows you inside out.

A wise man can learn more from his enemiesA wise man can learn more from his enemies than a fool from his friendsA wise man can learn more from his enemies1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I felt Inspired by many things in my life.One of thing i am still learning is how to deal with haters. and today i feel better, I saw Movie Rush today. It give me some good inspiration, So i am putting it all together so that somebody facing problem from haters or enemies and feeling depressed just like me (not now , in last month)
Here is my points
1) This is internet, anybody can Abuse anybody if they want.If you want to learn to deal with it, just look at Politicians,Film Actors etc etc.. they all are having the Abuse problem from all their haters.They dont care really, because they Realized it before us and that's why they are now Proud and became famous.
2) If someone is spreading some bad news or anything about you, Consider it as a free advertisement.Don't care about reputation.Because after all people love for what we are currently doing

Unsurprisingly, that high quality of work leads to them either having their work ripped off or operating in fear of that happening. They, quite rightly, want to protect their art with a watermark, something which I'm not against at all.
What I am against, what I hate, is people using that god-awful DA watermark.
If you are a good artist: don't be a lazy git. Make your own watermark, use your own logo. You'll protect your work without doing it the disservice of having some automatically-generated arse-smear ruining it.

#89: Frequently Asked QuestionsOk guys, I think it's time to do a little FAQ, because I read the same questions over and over.#89: Frequently Asked Questions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let me see if it's useful for somebody.
OMG, what is this?
It's a fractal, baby!
What is a fractal?
It's a really difficult question to answer, but I'll try to keep it as simple as I can. So, fellow fractalists, if you're reading, I won't be that precise in answering.
Wikipedia says: "A fractal is a mathematical set that has a fractal dimension that usually exceeds its topological dimension and may fall between the integers."
Wait, what? I didn't even understand myself.
Ok, a fractal is basically the repetition of a same "image". This image can be repeated with its original dimension or fractal dimension (it can be resized).
For example, let's pick the Romanesco Broccoli (the image is from Wikipedia):
As you can see, it's a repetition of the same "peaks" over and over, each of them with diffe
The Real Dangers in Depression TreatmentsIf you want to help at all, +fav this journal. If you or anyone you know is affected by depression, any other kind of mental illness, or have ever been taken advantage of, -please- +fav this journal. The best way to help people at risk is spreading awareness, and my goal is to get this essay on the front page of Deviantart, so that more young children out there that might be at risk are informed of what's going on.The Real Dangers in Depression Treatments6 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, as my last journal implied, there was a recent emergency in my life that affected myself, my boyfriend, my boyfriend's mother, and most importantly, my boyfriend's sister. I would advise you to read the details here: before you go any further in this journal; she says it very well, and had more insight on what was happening behind the scenes than I do, as I was one of those outside the scene trying to help get in.

The life and death of traditional art.THIS WEEK IN ARTWEEK:The life and death of traditional art.6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Is traditional art becoming a lost art form? From the looks of it, yes. Scanning the front page on dA, one seems to see less and less traditional art every year. Of course, times and methods change- but doesn't this put disadvantaged creators at a well, disadvantage? Is there a bias against traditional art developing on deviantart? Where did the idea come from that going from paper to digital is a "step up"? We see this in other media as well. We ditch hand-drawn 2D animation for 3D, then wonder why the quality suffers. We inject our lines with stabilizers and homogenizers, then wonder why it tends to look the same. We force talent- instead of allowing it the time to grow naturally, we want to be good right now-- and take shortcuts to get there.
Maybe it's the fact that everyone started with paper, and familiarity breeds contempt. Maybe it's because all the big artists almost exclusively use digital art. Or something else entirely-
But one artist I know reb
Sexiest Female Game Characters (in my opinion)Compiled for no real reason other than that I felt like making a list. Might do some fan art, tooSexiest Female Game Characters (in my opinion)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
List is in order of appearance:
Princess Daphne (Dragon’s Lair, 1983)
Daphne is a cliché, blonde damsel in distress, yes, but she’s a cliché, blonde damsel in distress that was animated by Don Bluth, who had a stack of Playboy magazines on hand while he was drawing her.
Tyris Flare (Golden Axe, 1989)
Like a Frank Frazetta pic come to life….and then dressed in a bright white bikini by the Censors.
Also: That 360 game of hers really wasn’t that bad.
Blaze Fielding (Streets of Rage 2, 1992)
At some point between Streets of Rage 1 and Streets of Rage 2, Blaze must have washed her costume at the wrong temperature, because there’s a lot less of it. The horror.
Cammy (Super Street Fighter 2, 1993)
Chun Li had legs. Cammy has LEEEEEGS. And a perpetual wedgie.
Felicia (Darkstalkers, 1994)
C’mon. It’s me.
Writing, Roleplay, and a Little In Between(TL;DR: Actually, you may want to read this. So please do. If you're disappointed with reading it, yell at me in the comments for wasting a few minutes of your life. I hope you aren't, though!)Writing, Roleplay, and a Little In Between10 months ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you may know, writing is something of a passion of mine. From a very early age, I always knew that it was the characters in books that fascinated me, and I always wanted to take hold of the stories and make them something different somehow. I wanted to explore where no one has gone and break down the barriers that were words on a page, to make them something that wasn't written in stone.
Obviously, it's impossible to really change something that's already been written. Oftentimes, you don't really want to! And in any case, that's what fanfiction is for. But sometimes, just sometimes, you can explore a universe with others. It can be your own, or one you both enjoy, or perhaps one a -group- of individual people enjoy and agree to play together in.
But not everyone is a writer. T
advice on some stuff to look up before tutorialsso im gonna be starting to make some tutorials soonadvice on some stuff to look up before tutorials3 years ago in Personal More Like This
before that you should look up some informations
you probably noticed that in my work it is often hard to distinguish if im using a zbrush model or just painined it all in photoshop
reason for that is simple.
my realism rendering is greatly based on 3 d rendering processes.
by this i mean as i learned 3d i became aware of the stuff we usually visually take for granted.
qualities of material, importance of reflectivity, ambient occlusion, and subsurface scattering.
to any 3d artist these are everyday terms, while 2d artists usually paint them without often even being aware of wheat they are really doing
for instance , a 3d artist will at any given point use 2 types of shadows. cast shadows from a direct lightsource, and ambient occlusion shadows which naturally appear more intensively the closer planes of an object are together.
i can get into this and make it a long discussion , but easier w
What have we become?This world, the internet, this website, Makes me feel a bit sick.What have we become?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The internet opened my eyes to a world outside my house, outside hardship, bully and abuse. Thus it where good, but it is heading down a faceless path where bully is seen as good clean fun or trolling. Where people get rewarded for copying while I got humiliated and laughed at in art school, my technique or the fact that I drew it with a blue ink pen impressed nobody. I left art school and went to another school, stopped drawing for a while.
Created things I felt where original. As many of my friends, and close friend does. I write short stories or books.
(Queen-Soulia as her a talented writer that is ashamed to show her work, due to the cruelty of the internet.)
People punish original ideas and creativity creations with either mocking or blame of idea theft.
