SNIPPY: FLYING DAYENTRY 3647:SNIPPY: FLYING DAY2 years ago in Personal More Like This
November something something.
I've got to come up with a better system for telling what day it is. Maybe I could scrawl numbers on the back of my shoe? Nah, that sounds like something silly that Pilot would do.
I'm currently carrying a calendar that says 2012 on it, but I am pretty sure that these days aren't correct anyway to our year and Captain keeps scribbling things in the margins whenever I get distracted enough for the calendar to be snatched out of my hands. I found the calendar more or less intact and it's kinda impressive that it lasted from way back in 2012. It must have held some sort of personal importance to it's owner to seal it away in a plastic container with words "the Mayans were wrong, trust no-one!"
I've been trying to keep track of how old I am, but I keep forgetting to check off every day in the calendar or maybe captain is messing off with me by erasing my checkmarks.
Something tells me I shouldn't be telling Captain about my birthday anyway. I would
A MLAATR Short In Production: Needs SupportThis comes to us from :iconvcubestudios:A MLAATR Short In Production: Needs Support7 months ago in Personal More Like This
My fellow fans, it is now the ten year anniversary of the Nickelodeon hit show “My life as a teenage robot”. Created by master of animation Rob Renzetti, often considered to be Nickelodeons 1st true fairy tale, & lasting 3 seasons, do you really think it got the climax it deserved? In fact, how many shows can you think of that failed to receive a proper end? If it could go on for a fourth season, how would we know? & is there anything we, the fans, can do? There are many things one can do as an active member of any fan base he/ she chooses.
This is one of them. About a month ago, me and a small team of animators & artists, some of which are veterans of “Double Rainboom”, began producing an online series on our new channel, New Toon City. The show we plan to start out with is called “Revised!”. This series, along with many others from us, will attempt to create a stable community that celebrates any moving o
ENGIE: RegretsI was at first too stupid to see that we were no longer using ANNIE but Annie was using us.ENGIE: Regrets2 years ago in Personal More Like This
She was a goddess in the machine, our search engine.
We used her to collect and share knowledge and in return she had started to use us as her processors. It was an unexpected transition and it took a long time, thus I failed to notice it, failed to stop it. The new organism had come to life in which we were only neuron cells of her massive mind, that spanned continents.
Humanity no longer had a chance to survive in it's current state. We had poisoned the oceans, we had scorched the earth and blackened the sky in our quest for power.
The world we knew was dying. I knew that this decade would be our last. The city would fall to the Zone, sooner or later.
Research notes from the last report of Charles Snippy terrified me greatly. They had found something horrid in the Dead Zone. Something that killed them all.

Anatomy of typographyTYPOGRAPHY SERIES:Anatomy of typography1 year ago in Personal More Like This
01 – Anatomy of typography
02 – Ligatures
03 – Numeral sets
There have been many images going around the Internet explaining the basic elements of typography but most of these sources are incredibly basic and incomplete. That's why I decided to come up with my own version and be as complete as possible.
I excluded several things like diacritics, the different ligature types, numeral sets etc. to avoid making it look too chaotic but most of the basic elements seem to be there. I will focus on diacritics, ligatures and numeral sets later in this ongoing typography series.

KHR to end is false? (all KHR fans please read)so yesterday i just created a new poll about the KHR manga ending....KHR to end is false? (all KHR fans please read)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
i know every KHR fan is sad.. first the anime, now the manga right? :/
well, DONT WORRY!
firstly! i do not know where you heard the news from, probably from a website, fanpage, or a friend.
Look at this tweet https://twitter.com/AnimeNewsNet/status/263732312838123520
Shonen jump did not announce the end of KHR. neither did animenewsnetwork. it was, as stated by the tweet, a personal opinion that somehow spread like wild fire. O-O
those who read naruto might probably know the naruto manga will end soon because ANN has annouced it, but KHR's end was not.
I will confirm whether if the manga is really going to end when i get my issue of Shonen Jump weekly tomorrow or on saturday.
Secondly. do be reminded that such rumours can be easily spread and believed, just like the Justin Bieber having cancer thing. It was made believable because people had spammed chatrooms and made false information that made JB having cancer

After getting out of a slump, I wanted to share this story of something I went through a few years back. Bit of a read, but thanks for sticking through it
As you know, Comic-Con is arriving and as I prepare for it, I grow more and more anticipated with anxiety/joy in regards to the re-release of Last Man Standing.
As long, challenging, and mind-opening the creation of LMS was, something really stuck with me.
Before I had created LMS, I wanted to work for WETA Workshop. To those that don't know them, they've created props, designs, sets, costumes, and more for The Lord of the Rings, Avatar, District-9, Elysium, The Hobbit and many more films.
I was obsessed and inspired with them. The creator, Richard Taylor was always a huge inspiration to me. After viewing supplements on the Extended Editions of The Lord of the Rings DVDS, I knew right there: I HAD TO WORK FOR THEM.

i have seen in my life many artists who proclaimed they want to develop their skills, and kept bashing on everyone and everything on the way....and for some reason those guys never got anywhere...
here is why..
there is a value to different approaches, different styles. realism, manga , cartooney disney, my little pony, furries....don't waste your time tryint to bash any of the stuff you don't personally like
you are missing out, bigtime!
see there is a reason why that stuff is popular. and by that i mean on the visual side. so instead of flaming , trolling and bashing, try understanding the inner workings of it.
here are some specific examples
realism- it is a wonderfully complex base , reflects one's skill in capturing reality, but in it there are differences between photo referenced, real life work and no reference. ALL HAVE THEIR VALUE AND IMPORTANCE! from photos you can learn alot, gain analytic skills, develop an attention to

Which is the best score, the higher number the less good it is ;;;
It is pretty fun to test out and I´m really curious about my watchers score, and I wonder if it reflects in their art!

I need a huge favor...For those of you that don't know (which most of you don't) my boyfriend and I have been together for over 5 years...online. Thanks to skype we are on webcam everyday and every night, literally we fall asleep with each other (silly right? but sometimes it helps my security issues :/). This past February I finally met him for the very first time, he came up here. He saved up and spent his hard earned money to come see me (and the Swedish House Mafia concert of course!) And I felt like I had fallen in love all over again, it was breathtaking, unbelievable, extraordinary. But unfortunately it only lasted a week. A week of full love and bliss. All good things really do come to an end I guess, or do they? Eventually he went back to Texas, thousands of miles away and it was back to online. That was the hardest few weeks of our lives. Now it's my turn to come see him. But with what money? I have no job...I'm a full time student with over 11k in student loan debt.

Tokyo Zephyr Update & The Next Odyssey Project
Greetings fellow Light Train Travelers. Thank you for your continued patience.
We have made our choices for the artwork for Chapters 7 and 8, the three poems and the line art that has been chosen to be included in the book. Two of the line art pieces are for the end pages of the book. Those along with another line art piece still need to be colored so we'd like to offer up a last challenge to the community. All you top flight colorists out there we'd like you to take your best shot at coloring these pieces. Then we will be ready to publish right away after that. The best pieces will be included in the book. Your last chance to be a part of this charitable cause. You have until October 1st.
I will be announcing the next Odyssey project within two weeks. We will have a very special guest joining us on our next O
What Makes an ArtistI believe what makes someone an artist is their drive and passion for making art. I think an artist is more of someone who loves creating art and has fun doing it, rather than someone who just has a talent for it.What Makes an Artist1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I know someone who was (maybe still is).. intimidated by other people's artwork because it was so much better than theirs. This someone would think to themselves, "Oh, I'm a terrible artist because I cannot get to this level of superior artsyness ksjajkdfcriesincorner."
It's not about that.
You can only be a great artist when you accept the fact that some people will have a greater talent in this ability than you. I used to be this kind of person, I thought I couldn't get a career in art if I couldn't paint as good as this girl who was two years younger than me. But then I learned I couldn't be an artist if I always told myself I can't.
That's another thing. I think all great artists out there eventually learn that you can't be an artist if you keep sa
The Dead Places: The Visual Delicacy of DecayIt’s easy to think of art in terms of what is instantly pleasing to the eye, of that which evokes a feeling of joy and hopefulness and blissful peacefulness or ecstatic exultation. This is the consideration of art as something that helps propel us forward through life – to out future great deeds, our career victories, or dreams of coming big events. But there is a peak to every life. At some point all people, and all places, and even all ideas have to begin the inevitable decline that is the other balancing half of a lifetime.The Dead Places: The Visual Delicacy of Decay2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

Welcome to the contest journal! Now it's everybody's change to show me how much better they can make art that I once did.
The idea: Make one of my old artworks again and do it BETTER than I did.
[Take this as encouragement. Everybody regardless of the skill level are allowed to join.]
Choose one of my artworks (folder of acceptable works below) and make it again and better than I did! Use any media you like (exception: writings, of course because you should remake an image), use your style (realistic, cartoonish, all welcome), change the perspective, change the poses, make better background, make the IDEA OF THE IMAGE be better than I did! Everybody are allowed to enter; watchers, lurkers, stalkers, random passerbys and everybody between.
A Contest in Time A Milestone of the New AgeWhen deviantART and Five Four decided to let the community take the lead, it is only with the passage of time and chance moment of retrospective that the memories of an event from a decade past reveal that event to have been a harbinger of things to come – a prescient preview but of how people would very soon be changing the way they live their lives, and even defining their lives; a fundamental turn in what is to be valued in life and how to live it. The event of note occurred at the dawn of a new century and involved a group of young men were starting up a new apparel company not so much as a way to get rich (the old century paradigm) but as a way to express themselves and their lifestyle (the new century paradigm).A Contest in Time A Milestone of the New Age2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

Apophysis Image Rendering & MultithreadingThis article relates to the fractal program "Apophysis" (Apo), but may also be relevant to other image rendering programs.Apophysis Image Rendering & Multithreading7 years ago in Personal More Like This
In Apo, there is a setting in the OPTIONS menu where one can specify the number of rendering "threads" to use. This has a direct impact on the amount of rendering time an image takes to render. If set to OFF, the image will render as if it was using a single CPU. If set to 2 or 4, the image will render in much less time, because it has 2 or 4 CPU cores of which to take advantage.
People who have Intel CPUs, which have hyperthreading (such as some Pentium 4's), can set this option to 2 if they wish (DO NOT use higher than 2).
Don't know how to get an image in here, so here is the screenshot link showing this setting option. http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/46008841/?qo=1&q=by%3Azsteve+in%3Ascraps&qh=sort%3Atime
Hyperthreading (wanky marketing speak), basically means the CPU has "two threads" with which to perform its data processing (sort of like two C
