Manga Studio BasicsSo I've been asked what software I use to make my creator owned comic: Shadows of Oblivion. The short answer is Manga Studio EX. (the long answer is a lecture on how software doesn't make comics any more than a paintbrush makes a painting.... but I'll save you the speech.)Manga Studio Basics3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Manga Studio is a great piece of drawing software that takes into account everything a comic artist would need. Rulers, pens, pencils, markers, and brushes of all shapes and sizes. Nearly everything you'd need in traditional media to create comics is here in its virtual for you. Even my personal favorite, Blue lines! But some of you who may use photoshop may get confused. Some of the tools are similar, but not the same, it's a different interface by a different company, so things will be different.
So I thought for today's tutorial tuesday I'd show you two of the tools I us

I have suddenly run out of work to do at work, so instead of wasting time on tumblr and youtube
I wanted to open up a discussion here
a discussion about ART!
We're all artists of some form
we all deal with similar super frustrating struggles in advancing to the next level of our craft!
and I'm sure we've all thrown out our fair share of scribbles
maybe you can't draw feet
maybe you're having trouble with light sources
maybe you're all thumbs when it comes to photoshop
maybe you have some 4th different problem?
we can all help each other out!
so I ask:
What are you struggling with?
What do you need help with RIGHT NOW?
What road blocks are stopping you from exploding your potential?

Tracing and EmulationAfter reading through the comments in my previous journal, I feel the need to clarify a couple of things.Tracing and Emulation1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First: Tracing. Does. Not. Help. You. Improve. Your. Art.
Never has, never will and you’re kidding yourself if you think otherwise.
Second: Emulation is not tracing. People seem to be having trouble telling the difference.
Tracing does not teach you anything because all you’re doing is copying the line work of an existing image. All the real work has already been done. You’re not learning how the image is constructed or discovering for yourself how to use your drawing tools to create the desired effect. You’d be better off just outright copy/pasting the base image and saving yourself the time.
Emulation on the other hand, be it simply trying to recreate an existing image by eye or (even better) going all out and trying to adopt an existing style, does improve your method. By “reverse engineering&
No Excuses: I have artist's/Writer's blockFirst of all... What the crap is artist or writer's block? I mean, I understand what it is, but how do you get it? How do you run out of things to say, or draw?No Excuses: I have artist's/Writer's block3 years ago in Personal More Like This
From now on, I'm going to refer to this as artist's block as most of the excuses I hear are about art. But they apply to writer's block as well. (i just don't want to keep writing "Artists or writer's block")
So let me get this straight you want to draw something, but you don't know what to draw, so you're going to just draw nothing.... That makes no sense. It's like saying "I'm really hungry, but i don't know what I want to eat, so I'm just not going to eat anything." That doesn't happen. What happens is you say "I'm really hungry, I don't know what I want to eat, so I'll eat anything I can find." And that's how you have to approach your drawing.
If you want to draw, but you don't know what you want to draw, then draw ANYTHING. It doesn't matter what, just anything you can find. I know exactly what your thinking right n

Libertarians Don't Need To LieI would sooner advise you all to drink bleach than to visit the Daily Kos, as reading any of its diatribes is an excruciating experience that no human being with an IQ higher than spore mold should ever have to suffer through.Libertarians Don't Need To Lie2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would never consider writing for a site like that, and even if I did, I would probably be rejected for being too overqualified, seeing as I have more than one brain cell. Judging by its content, the writers are probably hired straight from crack rehabilitation centers.
Compared to other left-leaning blogsites, Daily Kos scrapes the bottom of the barrel. No, scratch that. This blogsite doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel. This blogsite isn't the bottom of the barrel. This blogsite isn't below the bottom of the barrel. This blogsite doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels.

Mythical or Magical the Crowned Princes of Horses
It’s a common error to refer to unicorns as “mythical” creatures, since they actually appeared in Greek natural histories, rather than mythology. Unicorns were thought to be very real, albeit well–hidden. They are possibly the purest symbolic essence of the cult of the “Majestic Horse,” usually being all white and reputedly only being in danger of being captured by virgin females. Whatever their magical origin and possible reality, they have long been captivating creatures in artists’ imaginations.

Holiday Card Project 2013Holiday Card Project 20132 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA
Never a waste.It's time for an overtired soul-searching journal! :iconimhappyplz:Never a waste.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have two hobbies. Writing and playing video games. I draw too, but I don't get the same, deep feeling of accomplishment and joy after finishing a picture that I do when completing a story or beating a game. The feeling is difficult to describe. Sometimes, I truly feel like these things are why I am here.
That being said, there are plenty of people who would laugh at that. "You shouldn't care that much about your hobbies. They are hobbies, not your life. You are wasting your time."
"You shouldn't care that much. You are wasting your time."
Have you ever had someone say that to you about something you enjoy?
It hurts. The things I love have made me who I am- for better or for worse. Writing and games have inspired me, hindered me, taught me, motivated me, frustrated me- the list goes on. I'm not saying that these are the only two things in life that I care about...but they are up there alongside my family and fr

They look like tiny versions of dinosaur ancestors who have survived into our age, like sharks and crocodiles, but actually they are of a separate evolution and not related. They have scary devil–mask faces, many even sporting horns—but actually, most species are quite human–friendly and can make affectionate pets.
Their endless variations in skin coloring and tattoo–like designs are what draw the artists’ and photographers’ eyes. The chameleons even “change clothes” all day long, wanting to always be wearing the appropriate colors for the “room” they find themselves in.
