9 Reasons to LOVE YOUR INK!1. - Ink can be used for drawing, writing or painting, anything you chose! You can use it with a brush, cartridge pens or drawing nibs, even a goose-quill will do!9 Reasons to LOVE YOUR INK!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
2. - Ink can be water-soluble or, unlike watercolor, waterproof. Once dried out, it stays where you left it, it doesn't run away from you!
3. - Ink can be watered down and used as washes, just like watercolor, but it can be used at full strength, achieving more consistent results!
4. - Ink, when dried on paper, results in a very appealing velvety surface.
5. - Ink is in many cases a lot cheaper than watercolor, even school quality (very cheap) inks bring lovely and very satisfactory results.
6. - Inks are colorful! Forget the black ink, you will be able to buy whole variety of colored inks. Also, you can mix them together to create many more colors & hues!
7. - White ink is a perfect assistant in many other techniques, use it to create highlights and special effects!

MY EFFING CAR CAUGHT FIRE. AWESOME.I wasn't really expecting to spend the other morning stood by the side of the road, watching my car going up in flames.MY EFFING CAR CAUGHT FIRE. AWESOME.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yet, there I was.
BEST. TUESDAY. EVER.
Don't ask me how it happened. I have no idea. Although, there are clues to be found in that the fire started at the back of the engine, near the top where all the fuel-related plumbing can be found.
All I know is the car began juddering, lost power, and after pulling over and opening the bonnet I found flames licking up the engine bay.
Now, it's common sense to (a) NOT open the lid to the engine bay and (b) move a large distance from your car if it catches fire. Everyone should know this. But fuck that noise, that's my fucking car, and the flames were small, so I had to do something. I had a giant bottle of water in the back in case I ever ran out of wiper fluid or needed to top up the coolant for some reason. So I grabbed that and doused the flames, sloshing it down the back of the engine. Where I saw the pollen filter ca

HOW 2 MAKE A WARRIOR CATS AMV1.) The song must be by Three Days Grace, Evanescence, or Mindless Self Indulgence. If it is not by one of these artists, it must sound very similar.HOW 2 MAKE A WARRIOR CATS AMV1 year ago in Personal More Like This
2.) Include at least 7 run cycles. The fewer frames, the better.
3.) Make sure to have one of each of the following: A closeup of the protagonist's eyes, gritted teeth, 3 red claw marks slashing across the screen, and bloody claws. (Bonus points for a single tear rolling down cheek)
4.) At least one character design must be slightly different than how it is described in the book series, so people have something to complain about.
5.) The AMV must focus on Scourge, Tigerstar, Bluestar, Ashfur, or Hollyleaf. (If not these characters, then the character in question MUST have a tragic / angsty past.)
6.) Trace every frame of your AMV from someone else's AMV, but never admit you did it. (If you get called out, claim that THEY copied YOU.)
7.) Character designs must be anime inspired. Characters can't be angsty if they don't have bangs and gian
Anti-Bullying Movie Fundraiser!Hello everypony!Anti-Bullying Movie Fundraiser!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The content of this post isn't very much related to ponies, but I believe that it's still something that's very important that should be talked about. It's about bullying.
As we all know, bullying is a major problem that many kids face today. Some of you may have even faced bullying, for being bronies, or any other reason.
This is why we should do everything we can to stop it, and to raise awareness, so that other people are aware of this issue.
This is why a group of friends of mine have decided to make a movie, to raise awareness about bullying, and to help bring an end to this terrible atrocity against innocent kids.
However, their project definitely needs some help, as it does cost money to help produce and promote the movie.
They have started an IndieGogo campaign, which can be found here http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/night-shadow
I am helping them spread the word about their movie, because I feel like I want to do my part to help stop bullying as best I can.
9 reasons to appreciate ACRYLICS1. UNIVERSALITY - Acrylic are probably the most versatile of paints. You can thin them with water and use as watercolor (they will remain permanent upon drying, unlike watercolor), apply them in full strength, create textures.9 reasons to appreciate ACRYLICS2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
2. COMBINABLE - This medium is very suitable to be combined with anything you wish - watercolor, ink, pencils, oils... Free your imagination and experiment!
3. NUMEROUS SUITABLE SURFACES - Acrylics can be used on paper, canvas, wood, metal and many more surfaces (this is true, even though they don't adhere towards some surfaces as promptly as oils). This is a great advantage, when you get used to this medium, you can paint at whatever material you've got available.
4. DON'T STINK - That's right, all of you that have experienced headaches caused by oil paint might just appreciate an acrylic vacation!
5. FAST DRYING TIME - Composition doesn't seem right after you put down your first layer? This is not a problem, wait half an hour
9 Reasons to PAINT WITH WATERCOLOR1. - Watercolors are FAST. They dry fast and you can finish a painting within one day. Given that you learn with every finished painting, you learn fast!9 Reasons to PAINT WITH WATERCOLOR2 years ago in Personal More Like This
2. - Watercolors don't stink. No dangerous chemical fumes, no headaches, usable around little children. Isn't that a wonderful reason!
3. - Watercolors are easy to clean. You don't make a lot of mess, and if you do, what water fouled, water will clean.
4. - There is no need for white paints. All the lightness is already given by your paper.
5. - Watercolors are practical to use outdoors. All your tools will fit into a small pocket.
6. - Watercolors are RELAXING. It must be the flooding, but whenever working with water and brush, your mind is set on ease.
7. - Watercolors bring transparent, delicate and ethereal results. Sometimes even a few well-lead brush strokes deliver sightly accomplishment.

When I was in fifth grade,
a man followed my brother home.
I remember being on the computer
in the office right by the front door.
At first, it was a frantic knock.
My brother and his seventh grade friends
were quickly getting off their bikes,
my brother telling me to open the door.
I took my time getting up,
thinking they had forgotten their keys.
claiming to be neighborhood watch,
followed my brother and his friends home.
He saw them playing tag on their bicycles
on their own school campus,
yelled at them for trespassing,
threatening to call the cops,
and when no police arrived
he decided to take matters into his own hands.
He followed them home.
In his car.
He tailed them, but they saw him.
They tried to avoid him,
but when they got home
he pulled up and got out of his car
and ran up to our front door.

This journal is for starters who wants to start their own DA commissioning business.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO START
When you have enough watchers and people interested in your art.
When you have a closely-bounded community around your work/gallery
How many is enough I won't say, because it soly depends on the community around you and your work. Some artists can live on one patron, others need to live on millions of them.
If you need more exposure, do fanart. After all, people would type and search famous series, not your name. If they do type your name, you are famous.
If you don't want to do fanart, the other option is draw the cliche-category.
Pirates are selling, draw pirates.
Angels and demons always sell

2014 Winter Anime RecommendationTop recommendation:2014 Winter Anime Recommendation1 year ago in Personal More Like This
D-Frag! - Anime adapted from a manga. It's a comedy series based around a so-called 'delinquent' involving a weird club. The basic premise is straightforward but it's a funny and cute anime with memorable characters. The main girls are cute and the jokes are fairly decent though it heavily relies on the main character to be the tsukkomi while everybody else are being their usual brand of random-insane-weird. Some minor fanservice here and there, 4 episodes in and I think it's all around good enough to be a top recommendation. It skipped some chapters from the manga though.
Gin no Saji Season 2 - A second season for Gin no Saji. If you followed the first season, definitely follow the second season. It's still really good and it's also refreshing to see how educational this series can actually be. Also, many Hiromu Arakawa's signature style of character.
Mikakunin de Shinkoukei - A romcom featuring a destined childhood friends. The main strength of the comedy is obvio

There is an artist here an dA, who goes by the name of Sahtori-Kamaya, whom I admired for quite some time, and this is not just because she makes wonderful artwork, but for who she is as a person.
She is kind and friendly and has an inner strength that most people probably can't compete with. (In some regards she is comparable to Fluttershy, really.)
Sadly, life is not as kind to her as she is to everyone else. She has been diagnosed with cancer some time ago but she is determined to fight it, not to give up. Unfortunately, this isn't easy for her as life keeps throwing rocks in her way.
Her major problem is that she can hardly pay for her medicine or treatments. Most often, she can't pay treatment at all and medicine only partially. She can't go to work herself, since the illness is nagging health and no employer wants an ill employee.
Her Government won't give her the support she needs and her family can't (or won't, too), so the
PE: 9 tips to be more creativeCreativity isn't just an artist's concern. Creativity is about using your imagination in every endeavor. Believe it or not, you are a creative person already. However, these tips might inspire you to get the best of what you already have.PE: 9 tips to be more creative2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. GET OUTSIDE
This comes as a very first tip for a reason. Whether it's outside your house or outside your mind, changing your perspective will help the ideas flow.
2. DRINK ENOUGH WATER
Your brain functions much better when well-hydrated. Symptoms of mild dehydration include tiredness, headache, muscle weakness, and dizziness - these are certainly not going to help you to think straight.
Exercise produces endorphins that might as well be responsible for your next brilliant idea.
Dreaming is very important, inside a dream nothing is impossible. Use that to your advantage.
5. STOP WATCHING TELEVISION

A simple piece of advice for making charactersI've gotten a lot of requests from time to time from people asking me to basically critique their character and give my thoughts or help them work through a problem. Sadly, most of the time, those characters are some underdeveloped - meaning that there isn't much described about them beyond basic informations - and that makes it harder for me to give my thoughts.A simple piece of advice for making characters6 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, I thought I'd share a little process of mine when I make characters.
Base something off yourself or someone/something you know
First off, I know some people have difficulties in generating unique characteristics and personality quirks for their characters. In my experience, I sometimes base a character on an aspect of myself (not myself entirely, but usually one or two things about me). Or, I'll even base them on an aspect of someone I know or even a fictional character. So if you're ever not sure where to start with a character, think of something about yourself or someone you know to help get you

You really want to, you've worked hard to develop the skills you have and you enjoy every minute of doing what you love. And besides, people say that your artworks are...nice. Cute. Doesn't that count for something? Sure it does, there is no reason to panic and pointlessly push yourself forward. Enjoy your coffee break!
Besides, even if you didn't like the current level as much, there is absolutely nothing you can do about it at the moment. So many unfortunate happenings stand right between you and your dream. Recognizing any of the following?

You're right! After all, you are a human being, not a machine, waking up early every morning, heading to school/work, afterwards taking care of the household/kids/your homework, studying, you barely even finish all the tasks during the 24 hours that's been given to everyone.
