Staying MotivatedWhen people hear that I'm a freelancer, they usually say one of two things.Staying Motivated4 years ago in Personal More Like This
1- That's AWESOME. You get to work whenever you want.
2- That must be HORRIBLE keeping yourself motivated.
I never really had a problem with the motivation part until recently, until last week it clicked with me why, and how I had been self-medicating up to that point. So with that in mind, I'm gonna share some ways I find useful of staying focused.

Wanna kill yourself?Wanna kill yourself? Imagine this. You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time. A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up. She's screaming your name. Your brother, so confused, runs to go tell Dad that "Mommy is crying and sissy won't wake up." Your dad runs to your room.

I am a bit disappointed with how this contest turned out. I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE the pictures that I did get, though! But as I was deleting people from the list..I counted almost 15 and the 10 who told me in notes. So that's 25 people who didn't take part due to being busy (OMG..I am so sorry.. ;n; ) or just didn't feel like it. I was hoping since it involved your own OCs it would give more incentive, but I guess I was wrong. This was also judging whether or not I should host any upcoming contests. Anyway, I LOVE the pictures you
Drawing lessonsAnytime someone asks me for resources and lessons on drawing well I always tell them to learn the fundamentals and draw from real life. Few people take me at my word and go looking for that.Drawing lessons3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well Dan Norton, :icondingo107: , the guy who brought us the new Thundercats gave us DA users an AWESOME chance to look at how the fundamentals work using DA's Muro App (which I gotta say is brilliant).
So take a look at this and you'll get a great jumping off point on how to draw well and draw properly.

This one is on drawing in perspective and drawing props/environments within a box. It's pretty slick.

Some thoughts on commissions from a commissioner.I commission art a lot. I've commissioned from many different artists all over the world. And after several years here are a few on my own personal thoughts on commissionsSome thoughts on commissions from a commissioner.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. List you prices.
- Whether its flat rates or by the hour, artists that commissions should list their rates. Most the time the old saying "If you have to ask, it probably costs to much." really comes into play here. I'm so much more likely to commission someone where I can gauge my budget. I myself am a single income family of five. That means I have a budget. A budget means I shop around. So that means when I am comparing artists if I know what I can spend with one and not the other, I'm more likely to go with the one I know I can budget.
2. List your customers.
- It is so much easier for a person to know where they stand when you have them listed.
2½. Update your customers.
- Most artists have an idea how long something is going to take. Now it's understandable that the idea isn't always acc
Cosplay SaleHi friends,Cosplay Sale2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've just too much stuff lying around, so I thought about selling again a few things I probably won't wear anymore.
If you're interested in any of them, feel free to send me a note!
SHIPPING: The shipping costs depend on where you live. They'll always be added to the cosplay's price, but of course I don't know yet how much the shipping will cost in any case. I'll keep them as low for you as possible. I ship worldwide!
SIZES: All sizes are Small / GER: 34 / 36
PRICES: All prices are what I had to spend on the materials, nothing is added for the tailoring because I wore them before. In some cases it's even less than the material costs. Please respect the prices, I only used the best suitable fabrics so they're often not the cheapest ones. But if you want a cosplay really badly but you can only pay a little less than the price, we can talk about it. I hope that's ok for you!

Colorists: Having Difficulty Finding A Skintone?This happens to me all the time.Colorists: Having Difficulty Finding A Skintone?3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I'm starting out an image, and for the life of me, I just cannot determine what color I should use for the skintone. I wish I had a crystal ball that would show me thirty minutes into the future so I can see just how a character will look after applying all the necessary shading, anatomical detailing, and highlights based upon the base color I use. A lot of times, it'll appear too faint, too desaturated, or on the flip side, way too bold and gleaming like a bronzed deity caked in a thick lathering of walrus grease.
Which is delicious, by the way.
FORTUNATELY! The folks at The Humanae Tumblr seemed to have a crystal ball of their own. Not so much one that shows the final product of my work, but one that certainly told them of my many incredibly frustrating endeavors into spending a good chunk of time shading a character's skin only to realize the base tone was absolute g
MetamorphosisMonths back, I wrote a comic about Jane Fitzpatrick's backstory (which is technically completely 'original,' as Jane and her background are totally separated from any Avatar characters or elements) which was accepted to be included in Grayhaven Comics' upcoming project, 'You Are Alone.' The project's Kickstarter was successful, and so this comic that I wrote and DoodleBuggy did a brilliant job bringing to life is supposed to be published later this year. You Are Not Alone will be: "A 200+ page anthology of hope with tales of overcoming bullying, homophobia, racism, depression and abuse." You can find more information about it here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1429812861/you-are-not-alone-1Metamorphosis2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The comic is finally done! And you can read it here:
It is a standalone piece written for elementary/high school students, but it also serves a small slice of backstory for Jane's character.
It's been a pleasure to work
