So remember that 'difference' I wanted you to spotSo remember that 'difference' I wanted you to spot1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So do you remember these I made awhile ago? Well, why I bring it up is because.. well. nothing is going on and I don't need to make any journals (and I want this to stay on my front page for a few days atleast lol). So, again, what is the difference?
Nothing. They're both traced.
The bending forward is traced off of an animu picture. The bending backwards one, was traced over some real life stock. But yet, the 'original' is viewed as 'accepted' in this community while 'animu trace' is considered a no no. So apparently if you trace for an 'original' picture then it is not viewed as 'bad' but if you trace some stupid animu shit then you're viewed as demon shit spawn from the seventh hell of shitfuck. All you're taking is the 'pose' of the picture, as shown by this 'original' base. But if it's anime then you're stealing the picture as a whole and claiming the whole fuck as yours so it seems.
Just thought I'd say it
A noggin-nibbler.This is something that's been nibbling at my noggin for awhile, and the final tolerance-feather was finally plucked today when a rude comment was addressed to a close friend of mine.A noggin-nibbler.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
For a rather long time now, there have been massive complaints against doll and base-makers. Accusations, saying that base/doll creators can't actually draw anything on their own, and that they're simply unoriginal, creativity-lacking tracers.
You know what, though? If these makers/dollers weren't as popular as they were, you wouldn't give them a second glance. You wouldn't give a flying pickle, and you know it. You'd go about your business and wouldn't even half-bat an eyelash. I have several good friends who are WONDERFUL artists, both in AND out of dolling/base-making. Working with bases also helps curve one's proportion accuracy, as well. Personally, I rarely use them, but I can safely say that I've learned a thing or two from when I have used them.
It just really eats me up to see people ca

AttentionJust because someone doesn't doll exactly like you does not mean they are a bad doller.Attention5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Just because someone uses anime bases instead of 1-inch barely visible bases does not meant they are a bad doller.
Just because someone shades or details or face edits a certain way that you don't like does not mean they are a bad doller.
JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE DOES SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAN HOW YOU DO IT DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE BAD AT IT.
YOU ARE NOT THE FUCKING GOD OF DOLLING NO MATTER WHAT YOU MAKE YOURSELF BELIEVE.

I'm going to be as nice as I possibly can when I say this
Hours of work doesn't always equal skill
Look, I used to spend hours on stuff that, honestly, looked like complete shit
This, for example: http://mellow-match.deviantart.com/art/Gorillaz-OC-Red-217434495
I'm not saying that you're terrible if you don't make it into a group based on your skill level
And, again, I'm trying to be nice, but you should be mature enough to accept what is said and just work on improving so you can prove to whomever that you've got not only the skill, but also the will to be in groups like pixel gift groups
Groups like those are always going to be a bit pickier, since the point is to be making something nice for someone else, so they try to filter people accordingly
When they say, "You need to improve," they aren't saying that you suck and you should jump off a cliff and take your shit with you
They're just trying to keep each trade as even as possible with the skill levels of it's members

doesn't really work for a lot of people, I'm writing this to add to it.
When I find images to make into basses I don't always find the images from the REAL OWNER. I Don't claim to be the real owner as you can understand and I know I suck at drawing anything other than clothes and hair. Plus, when you post an image on the internet-chances are, someone will copy and paste it into there gallery on say facebook or photobucket. These people most likely don't "own the image" but they might have downloaded it on there Ipod or something. Personally, Im fine if someone takes my images and posts them around using them for fun or what not, and I respect you if you don't have the same opinion. But don't start bitching about it to me because im short tempered and shoots first.
If you're the one who owns the original image, SEND ME A NOTE saying you want credit or you want it taken down. IF, you send m

I've already blocked most of you because you kept coming back and commented on almost every little thing I did, but just in case there's still more, I'm going to be 100% mature about all of this.
I've credited the originals artist on the base. Okay?
I've changed the rules on my bases. Okay?
The originals artist speaks Japanese and seems hard to come in contact with, so I really can't do anything about asking about it. Okay?
If they do happen to see the base and ask me to remove it, I will. Okay?
I'm not just some 15 year old brat, I know how to respect people.
But, to the people who felt the need to keep commenting on my things telling me every little thing I've done wrong, I don't care about what you say. You're [the most of you] are blocked. You all are just looking for something to stir up. It's not going to work. Any hate comment I get is going to be removed, so you're wasting your time.
You where the brats here, I didn't need 100+ comments to learn my lesson. It wou

What time is it? RANT TIME :DOkay, so today's rant is about a certain base maker (I won't give out a name, because that'll just start drama.*shrug*)What time is it? RANT TIME :D1 month ago in Personal More Like This
OKAY, first off, they have a black list, which I guess is alright for people that break the rules BUT, they put people on their black list just because they don't like what the person did with their base. I mean, if every base maker did this, then, there would be A whole fucking lot of people who wouldn't be allowed to use bases.
Second, they once told me that they hated adoptables, and then they started making them. Yeah. Explain that, you can't can you? They also say that if people use their bases for adoptables they have to be free (I think), because they don't like the idea of selling things like that and yet they're selling adoptables. And they call me a hypocrite. And for what? I don't know, probably about my saying it wasn't fare to watch them upload stuff they made with bases that their watchers weren't allowed to use. I apologized of course but still.

HELP! I NEED HELP!I've been asked by a local art gallery to host "How to draw Anime" classes. Without thinking I agreed because hey? its a great way to get extra $$ for the wedding.HELP! I NEED HELP!2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Except for one small problem....
I've never taught a class in my life.
And apparently the gallery has advertised it and its popular as fuck. as in, theres a waiting list to sign up. O_O
the tentative date for the classes is June first and it will be a two-three hour class.
WHERE THE BLAZES DO I START!?! I didnt have a good experience with art classes (my teacher being the type who failed every student who didnt follow her style) so the only reference point I have is to point at a still life and say "draw that" which isnt technically useful in this situation. I really want this to be successful, not only for my wallet but to spread respect for anime/manga in this small town who's only concept of "Art" is paintings of flowers and sunsets.
Does ANYONE have any blog/forum/reference/anything that might help me get

The highschoolers are coming the first week of April to talk to us about stuff, and the counsuler that's assigned to you is gonna come over and discus what you should have on your schedule. And...IT'S MARCH AND THEY'RE SHOVING THIS STUFF DOWN OUR THROATS ALREADY. Why did this year go by so fast?
I don't even want to think about Barlow but, they're making us....
And to think all of this fear was acknowledged when Mrs.Fulsher asked me if I wanted to Honors English next year. I don't even know if I want to... It's times like this that I wished I was home schooled.

QAQ I was so suprised, omg.
Okay, so I went to musical rehearsals today, and we basically got all the materials we needed today. Like, the script, the schedule, and all that good stuff.
Then, it was the dreaded selection of roles. (Mind you, there's like, 38 people who are in the musical, and only 8 people get lead roles.) We were all sitting in our chairs listening to her read the names of the 8 lead roles.
LO AND BEHOLD, MY NAMED WAS CALLED.
And now I am singing 4 songs in the musical.
If you're curious, the play is School House Rock Live! Jr., and these are the 7 (or rather 8)roles.
(i'm just gonna put down the names of my friends here b/c why the hell not you don't know em. LOL)
