Hello!Back from the dead.Hello!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've kinda disappeared for a bit, and wanted to write a little journal why I've left Facebook, Twitter and kind of my online persona. If you care to read, down below you will find my reasons. I hope you're well, and will try to post more art soon. Feel free to discuss below your opinions on the matter, and I'll try to reply. My answer goes far beyond "I've just been busy!" and maybe you too will connect with how I've felt:
The other day I received an email from a fellow follower of my work, asking the question of why I left Facebook. Not that everyone should know my daily activities, but if you haven't noticed, a couple of months ago I had deleted my FB in order to focus on my property LMS, as it's shaping up for film, and the next book in the series, LMS: Welcome to America
Now before I continue, this is strictly my opinion. I know people like to get angry online, so if you disagree with it, you have every right to
Need for ToleranceFrom Reddit:Need for Tolerance4 years ago in Personal More Like This
(This is pretty obvious so I didn't think I need to point it out but it seems that some people need to hear it: No, I don't think all religious people are like this. Yes, I do know these are extreme cases. But the point is that these are all recent events and we shouldn't live in a world where this kind of intolerance still exists. I've lost count the number of times that I've been harassed by Christians so the next time you see someone picking on gay people, saying atheists should be killed, don't be a bystander and just let it happen. Speak up. Stop a crime before it happens.)

20k pageviews, new name, more art ?Hey you few who read my journals !20k pageviews, new name, more art ?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, holy sh*t 20k pageviews !
I have been comparing my stats to some other artists here in DA
and i have found an odd stat difference.
Many people have far more pageviews than me but far less views on their art. What gives ?
For me the gallery stat site says ;
Jscene has 20,132 pageviews total and their 129 deviations were viewed 157,980 times.
Am i missing something obvious here ?
So i decided to change my nickname from Must1 to Jscene.
For me it seems a bit more professional and fun to pronounce than the earlier.
Let me know what you think ! I am totally happy with it.
I'm about to get a new lens to my arsenal today, it's an ultra wide angle lens.
Canon EF-S 10-22mm F/3.5-4.5 US , so i'm surely gonna start uploading more content here.
Hope it's a good thing !
Hope you all are doing well !

Newton's First LawAn essay that I wrote the other day for the Interdisciplinary Studies application explains clearly why Gaming/Animation is not a suitable or relevant area of study for me and why it would be more beneficial to me to study Art (Illustration), (Creative) Writing, and Spanish together as one major. I'll spare you the read, but in summary, my life goals have changed, and to switch majors at this opportunistic time will help me reach my current goals.Newton's First Law2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know, I know, it sounds so much cooler to say,
~"Yeah, I'm majoring in Gaming/Animation."
-"You mean like, making GAMES? And ANIMATIONS?!"
~"Yeah, 'spretty awesome, huh?"
But I'm optimistic about this, and I already feel less stressed-out about the coming semester as compared to thinking about returning to the MacLab. I think this will be good.

Writing adviceI have had several followers say "I wish I could write as well as you." And I usually think, "There's no reason why you can't."Writing advice3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Writing is just another form of art like painting or sculpting. Almost no one is good at first. You have to practice, practice, practice. But failing that, I thought I would share some of my thoughts and experiences on learning how to write well.
First off, you have to have pretty good grammar. It is the essential foundation of any written work. I don't think anyone has perfect grammar. English is too clunky a language with our thousand rules. It's part of the reason professionals have to go through several drafts of their works and we have editors.
Don't use numerals. Don't say "She was 7 years old." Say "She was seven years old." I can't tell you how many times I've seen fanfic writers do this. It breaks the flow of the narration for me.
Watch out for tense drift. This was one of my greatest hurdles. Sometimes when I am particularly investing in a scen

Premium Content Platform?Hmmmm....Premium Content Platform?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
OK, this isn't a rant, but if you're gonna use this thing, be VERY careful. I personally think it's a bad idea, but this isn't my world. Yeah, this kinda system definitely works for music. But for visual arts though? Mehhhhhh....
It reminds me of this "Mr. Krystal" guy who, a while back, asked if he could pay me $20 for the high-res file of . That's how much I sold the prints for at that time! PUHLEEZE. I wanted to reply and say "Sure, for $20,000; and you can do whatever you like with it".
I just wouldn't upload a very high resolution piece of artwork to sell. That's just personally handing someone a paid invitation to come and throw it up on mediafire or piratebay. Or better yet: print it out and going to conventions to sell. That's the problem with digital art compared to original traditional art. You can't really sell it. Making an atte

First set of thumbnails (2x3) complete. That's 17 pages (which sounds short, but I really don't think it is. Especially when you add the 12 pages of ads.)
Last night I worked on supersuit design, but it ended up mostly staying the same.
Changed the haircut, I think.
Settled on a face.
Decided on the name.
Chose an inking style.
Next comes the second set of thumbnails (2.5 x 4?) with slightly more detail.
Skyrim Dawnguard *Warning Spoilers!*AGAIN, I WARN YOU, SPOILERS AHEAD.Skyrim Dawnguard *Warning Spoilers!*3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some highlights of Dawnguard:
SYNOPSIS: The story of Dawnguard involves the return of a vampire lord named Harkon, who seeks to put a stop to his greatest enemy: the sun. Harkon intend to use the untold power in the ancient Elder Scrolls to accomplish his goal, while an order of vampire hunters (the titular Dawnguard) hopes to stop him. The conflict puts players in a position to choose sides; fighting alongside the Dawnguard to defeat Harkon is one option, but you can also join forces with the undead and expand your own vampiric powers. Like the civil war quests in the base game, your choice changes the quests you undertake. "We present players with both sides of the storyline pretty early in the DLC," says lead artist Matt Carofano. "There is a lot of unique content depending on which side you choose."
A castle. Just a few weeks ago I was thinking how cool it would be for the Dragonborn to own his own castle.

My employment at a camera store has been both enabling and crippling to my photography. I work 5+ days a week, so I don't have much spare time to take photos, and I am constantly surrounded by people with so much talent that it can be disheartening. But do not fear! I am learning a lot from said people and hope to apply it in my work. My next milestone will be getting wider shots and using my strobes.
I have been modeling for some coworkers and the results have been very encouraging. I am getting better at it! I hope to share some of them with you soon if the photographer doesn't mind. We traveled to Portland and did a late night shoot until 3am with cityscapes and even on a bridge. I was running out during the short periods in which cars weren't coming. It was all very excit

with a tongue rough as flint,
