Movie Talk: Animated Movie Poster/Cover RantSince my journal needs an update i thought hey, why not posting this here, too. This is an art site after all and should be interesting to you as well.Movie Talk: Animated Movie Poster/Cover Rant3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am someone who might be called a "cineaste" - because it's true. I friggin' LOVE movies. I love watching them, collecting them, doing research, listening to audio commentaries and learning about the backgrounds. And i always had a soft spot for animated motion pictures. Still do. Disney is awesome, so is Dreamworks and the not so wellknown ones.
Lately i went through my DVD-Collection once more and...i just realised again how MUCH i despise the awful covers that go along with most of the animated movie DVD releases. Especially when i recall the original theatrical posters - which are all (design wise) of sheer BRILLIANCE, full of power and emotion and actually dignify the movie's content. Not to be compared with the cheap DVD covers. Little comparison for you to see what i mean - because i felt like doing one.

COMIC CONThursday Edit: So I saw loads of stuff today, bought an official LOTR Fellowship Broach squee!!!! and I saw Mark Hemill. Anyone who is my age or of my generation and has seen the original Star WArs trilogy will know who he is XDCOMIC CON3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also, on the train back home, I sat with two guys and we spoke about all sorts of stuff, mostly old cartoons from the 60s to 90s. The old Batman and Spiderman were two, SONIC UNDERGROUND if anyone remembers that xDD AND... We even spoke about Rocky and Bullwinkle And a tad bit of PnF.
I love meeting people who are mature enough to have a casual conversation about things like these (including video games!) and not freak out if you like or not like a certain show. I love PnF, tho I stopped watching the episodes (I mean come on... they really kinda got progressively worse in th third season, tho there are a few stragglers). I can't stand the Fandom no more either, but no matter. I still love the characters and especially their creators.

Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more.
Men were deceivers ever,
One foot in sea, and one on shore,
To one thing constant never.
Then sigh not so, but let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into hey nonny, nonny.
Stupid Spider.I hate spiders. I really hate them. So much so that I have a kill-on-sight policy regarding them.Stupid Spider.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't even have that for wasps, and they're real bastards.
I think it's because spiders actively try to invade your personal space.
At least, that's what I always assumed they were doing.
After seeing this, it's hard for me to maintain my view that they're 8-legged masterminds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLw-9dpHtcU

Really Important Prayer Request! (Please Read!)(Read all about it here --> http://seekhim.deviantart.com/art/Pray-for-an-end-of-Mingi-338319168 )Really Important Prayer Request! (Please Read!)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So according to what I just read, there are children in southwest Ethiopia who are Mingi, or "impure". These children are considered to be cursed by spirits, and are believed to bring misfortune to their community if they are allowed to live.
The children who are Mingi are left to die or killed by means of drowning, starvation, or (in infants cases) 'have dirt stuffed in their mouths so that they choke to death.'
Please, pray for an end to this!

This is not meant to offend any shippers, I just felt the need to express my point of view. I will try to be as respectful as possible, however please note that I am also very blunt. Can’t handle that? I once again refer you to the top left corner.
I don’t expect anyone to stop shipping Jelsa because of this. I know that people will ship whatever they want regardless of what I say, and that’s fine. But if you don’t mind someone’s opinion, then please take some time to read this.

Interested in Eythan's birth? LOLAre you curious about it? Because, Eythan was indeed very based in Akira from Togainu no Chi, but there was a character I had when I was 12 called "Eythanel", that had this physic:Interested in Eythan's birth? LOL3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It all started when I got home an awesome game called Baldur's Gate II. I never played the first part but I was told I didn't needed to do it and the sequel was way better, so I got an addict-gamer that spent most of my free time playing this game.
When choosing my character, I felt in love in one of the designs the game provided. It was a grey-haired elf, so I decided him to be a warrior-thief (only elves could have a double-proffession!). He was good/neutral-alligned and I called him Eythanel. I loved his grey hair!! So I started to develop a "grey/silver-haired fetish".
You have no idea of how much I loved that character. I could never finish the game because I got stuck in the battle with the las

Watercolor papers review[Originally posted on my blog but I thought some of you might find this of interest here ]Watercolor papers review2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I frequently get questions about the paper I use for my illustrations, I thought it would not be a bad idea to make an in-depth review of watercolour papers: the ones I have tried, whether I liked or disliked them and why, their caracteristics, and what you should pay attention to when looking for a good watercolor paper.
Keep in mind that all opinions are my personal ones, and refer to how I work - the right paper for me may not be the right paper for you, depending on your personal techniques.
Also, I use watercolour paper because I almost systematically mix markers with watercolour and thinned acrylics, but if you use markers only I would not recommend them - they suck the ink out like crazy.

Commissions WidgetI just wanted to make a post to refer back to when people ask me about using DA's new commission widget. You may read all about this new widget here.Commissions Widget3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will not be using this widget for several reasons. First of all, I don't accept points as commissions. Second, I don't approve of the 20% cut of commission profits from using the widget. Third, I have virtually nothing for sale that meets the price limit. I understand that this is a method to convert points to usable income, but it's not worth the trouble it comes with.
You are of course free to do whatever you want, however I recommend to other artists reading this to go ahead and use your journal or a custom widget to accept commissions so that you can:
~ Charge whatever you want without a cap imposed by a third party.
~ Don't have to deal with the limitations of the widget.
~ You can keep all your profits
