BLANKPlease ignore and delete this journal from your message center.BLANK3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This journal is a placeholder, I will add content to this journal at some later date. I upload many journals at once so that you can easily delete them all at once. The alternative is to upload journals one at a time which is far more cumbersome because I need to move the front page journal every time as well. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Lesson from some kids. //life.I'm just going to get right into this.Lesson from some kids. //life.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The other day I was sitting in class rather frustrated with everything and the people around me. I'm in a split class with grade 10's, 11's and us... the 12's, so there was about 15 minutes left in class and i had noticed this grade 11 boy glance over at me every so often.. thinking it was strange i finally exchanged a long look with him, it caught me off guard when all he did was smile at me then turned to leave. Now i've never talked to him, and i know he didn't mean anything with the smile. But the look he gave me almost said: "you look upset today but thats ok, smile with me?" So i smiled back.
That actually changed my outlook on my entire day. Something as small as some kid sharing a smile with me, It kinda made me think about how simple the whole thing was.
Sorry i'm just blabbering my feels towards the world.
Then today a little girl in my other art program was just talking about how excited she is to grow up and graduate and move out an

Then stop stealing peoples shit to impress others. DUH.
"4 years of this, that is long enough and a stupid grudge
because of Art/Poses/Characters/Ideas and everything

Yeah, four years and you still choose to steal and lie and hide behind password protected TUMBLRs.
Take a hint. You wouldn't have to deal with this if you'd JUST FUCKING STOP STEALING.
No you can't copyright poses but IT'S OBVIOUS that you are referencing and WHO you are referencing. You could have the COURTESY to CREDIT or just tell people what you looked at to get a pose idea from.
Okay, if the poses you are using are SOOOO generic, then why referencing again and again from Uriko or Katie or Tofu, hm? WHy not find that SUPER GENERIC pose on google? Funny how they're SOOO generic yet you keep referencing from the same people over and over and don't bother to credit. Yeah I saw you credited Tofu on that ONE pic out of the hundreds you've made but in yo
CHARACTER DESIGN CONTESTSo, if you read my journal, I have restarted working on my comic; "Help?"!CHARACTER DESIGN CONTEST2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Long time ago I had a character design contest for the comic where people designed characters that WILL appear in the comic, and since it was so successful(I love them!) and was so fun, I thought HEY LET'S DO IT AGAIN!

OC-DESIGN-CONTEST (Endline changed)THE CONTEST ENDS ON THE 4TH OCTOBER!OC-DESIGN-CONTEST (Endline changed)2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Feel free to join the Contest!
EDIT : There will be 5 Winners! Highest Price is 200 Points!
You can win multiply times, so do as many designs as possible, please X3
For the contest, you have to draw one or more of MY characters.
I wanted to make 6 guardians, but just one single one has a design.
The other ones are just ideas, but I have no idea how they could look like.
So my idea was that you could make a design for the 5 guardians.
They all have 1 single diamond on one of their bodyparts. You can decide which part of the body. (expect for boobs, bootys, sausages and pussys. I don´t want that )
Every single guardian has their ow

How to: Make thumbs big in features?I get this asked a lot!How to: Make thumbs big in features?3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Back when they introduced sta.sh, I didn't really use it. Because it seemed hard to get used to. I always wrote my articles in the old way.
Then I toyed with it a little and noticed that is is something really awesome!
Not to mention that the only way to make articles and journals is through Sta.sh Writer.
So I assume not so many if you know that there is a way to make thumbs big!
That is actually pretty easy. All you have to do is add big in front of a thumb code!

This is the "regular" size

Of course: without the spaces between the colon ( : )

With the growth in popularity of the e-book many authors are seeing a glimmer of hope and realizing that they can get their work out there without having to break into the velvet roped publishing house exclusive party. This means that you will begin to get even more solicitations from those authors looking for artists to bring visuals to their words.
If you have a website or have done any degree of online advertising of your artwork, you have probably gotten an e-mail with a similar message as the title. If not, you will at some point. It's best to be prepared now. For those who have gotten it, nine times out of ten you aren’t sure how to respond to it, what should you ask, how do you respond?

Tutorial Class!Hey creeps!Tutorial Class!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get messages daily asking how I do what I do... and it's hard to explain in an e-mail. It normally ends up sounding like, "well, you know, you just... draw... a thing you like..." So it gets difficult to explain things like using a light table, detailing multiple sketches, how to choose an effective composition, or the mysterious things I do in Photoshop.
Well, my darling creeps, I have good news.
I was approached a few weeks ago by the fabulously enthusiastic people at SKILLSHARE to teach a class specifically on my style, and how to develop your own. They're filming me while I go through my steps, and I get to walk each student through it. Killer.
How this works is you enroll in my class on Skillshare: http://skl.sh/18l2qyx

Crafting CONTEST: And the winners are..... 21-05Sorry it took a while guys but this was possibly the hardest choice i've had to make as a judge EVER! (and kinda wrote an announcement before but DA ate it -_-')Crafting CONTEST: And the winners are..... 21-052 years ago in Personal More Like This
Making a selection, and then narrowing the top 5 entries down to three really pulled at my heartstrings and my co-judge and friend wolfie1998 felt exactly the same about it. Each participant sent in an amazing entry that a lot of time and effort has been put into so in order to even make a selection we had to be very strict and look at every little detail. (I hate being a nitpicking critique lol). We judged each person on the followin qualities:
Does it fit the theme Animals/creatures
The winning crafts have to be related to the theme somehow. Sound logical enough, right?
If there's anything I love about being creative , it's the endless possibilities and different styles that one can create. Not one entry will look the same. I've given the contestants of this contes
Contest! - Now Closed / WINNERSHi Guys, it's Contest Time!Contest! - Now Closed / WINNERS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may have noticed with the jewellery I have made over the past year or so that I add little stories and things to them, in this contest I'd love these stories to inspire you to draw, write or create anything based on these stories that I have come up with!
You're free to elaborate on these stories, add to them and draw inspiration from them, you're totally free here but you have a better chance of winning by sticking as close to your chosen story as possible c:
For example, if you like the sound of a character, you can draw that person or if you like a certain story and want to write more about it then that would be perfect!
