Sick ass art tips.I've came across an art tip recently from Will Terrell (An artist and a youtuber) and it really stuck to me as a mean to improve my art- immensely:Sick ass art tips.4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Give your drawings a story.
Take this drawing I did recently as an example:
It would've been fine if I sketched a bust shot of Chrysalis and leave it as be. It would still be pretty, but it wouldn't be as interesting and it would leave little for the viewers to infer. For instance: Is Chrysalis finally a member of the equestrian society and is at long last allowed access to conventional coffee? Or did she return from a successful raid and is enjoying a cup of coffee on her coffee table? Or who is to say that's even coffee? Maybe it's liquefied love. So many possibilities! And that leaves the viewer with something memorable! Or I guess, I can't read you guys' minds.
So that's my tip of the day!
And I'm interested in hearing the art tips you guys find the most relevant/helpful
How did I miss this?! (And no one told me?)So I'm watching Wreck-it Ralph...sort of (I want to draw Vanellope, so I needed some reference). The DVD is on silent on my computer while I watch The Daily Show and work on some plush (I'm a bit of a multi-tasker) since little Nellie-P doesn't show up for a while. I look up at just the right moment, and for a SPLIT SECOND notice this graffiti on the walls of the terminal:How did I miss this?! (And no one told me?)10 months ago in Personal More Like This
...In the theaters, I saw the "All your base" graffiti on the right, but TOTALLY MISSED THAT SHIT ON THE LEFT.
...I had said I was spitefully amused by the lack of Final Fantasy references in this Disney movie about video games, after Square went all out and made an entire video game about Disney movies.
And well, I was an asshole who misspoke, and I apologize. There was indeed a Final Fantasy reference.
I'm not sure why, since this is an arcade community, but if Leroy Jenkins can be on the wall, why not Aerith?
Well played, Disney. How the FUCK did I miss this? I've seen the movie like 80 times by now (OK 5, but wha

...Why aren't more of the people I watch making journals about this...? This is AWESOME!
But, I do know from previous talks on this subject that some of my watchers will absolutely NOT be happy about this, but please remember that this does not mean that the Vatican will be forced to recognize gay marriages, and churches will not be forced to marry gay couples. This is for the sake of people who have different beliefs than you do - people who do not have to follow all of your religion's rules, as they are not involved in it.
Every human being deserves equal rights.
And don't anyone say something BEYOND STUPID like "NEXT WE'LL BE ALLOWED TO MARRY DOGS!", because if you don't see the difference between consenting, loving human beings marrying one another and humans marrying creatures of another sp

OH my god.
Oh my GOD!!!!!
My stupid irl brony friends who I love dearly haven't watched it yet so I have no one to geek out with, but oh dear god BEST. EPISODE. EVER. Season 2 was amazing! It was so great, even better than the first season, both in animation, story, and music. DHX studio loves us. Now I'm going to rant about the episode because this is my deviantart page and I do what I want.
Beginning spoilers: Queen Chrysalis was awesome, already starting on silly humanized sketches of magical wickedness. I was really hoping the villain was a twisted Trixie or something. It would have been a way more interesting plot twist if the silly little attention whore unicorn became a demonic overpowered witch. But the coolness of a changeling queen is okay. Also, I can't believe I'm actually about to say this but did anyone else see Dash kiss Fluttershy?! O_o Oh, and Colgate talks. And Lyra talks. And Vinyl fucking Scratch, showing up with
Internet Strike (Update)Okay so today, January 18, is the internet strike against SOPA. From 8am to 8pm a lot of people are going to be off the internet to protest censorship, including me, so I'll have plenty of time to work on page....what the hell page am I on?....uh 29 and 30 of Cupcakes. And an entertaining commission. I guess if you are forced off the internet, you are forced to do work. Right now, the president has sent the bill back until it is rewritten, so for NOW there is no immediate threat until it comes back out (please don't bring any political hate to the comments, please). So the best thing we can do is just stay offline, go outside, and get some sun. Maybe go shopping for books or hardcore porn. Or do your taxes or some shit. Up to you, that is if you are participating.Internet Strike (Update)3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Interesting! Re:Video game character personalitiesI realized something while talking with Team-Lemon-Tea, which I thought some of you (particularly the younger crowd out there) might find interesting.Interesting! Re:Video game character personalities11 months ago in Personal More Like This
We were discussing the personalities of video game characters, and how different it feels to play a game where a character speaks his mind, versus one with a "mute" character whose personality is not entirely clear.
Team-Lemon-Tea mentioned that a character with no personality made her uncomfortable, because she had no point of reference for how the character is supposed to act, canonically.
...And since I am actually far more used to seeing the "mute", "blank" types in my games, this perspective was very interesting to me!
This was part of my side of the conversation, describing how I first reacted to "talking" characters:
"When I first started playing games, none of my characters talked. EVEN in the RPGs. xD I'm straining my brain to think of a character that talked back then, and I can't. The first time I met
My response to ArianaTheEchidna's ArtTheft JournalWell, :iconarianatheechidna: I guess there ain't much we can do about the art thefts, cept try to tell em they're doin wrong and that they need to fix it or get reported and banned, not all will listen, but those who will, might be better off.My response to ArianaTheEchidna's ArtTheft Journal1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Even I was an art theft once, but I always put it all on Photobucket, rather than up here on DA, cause I knew I'd get in trouble here.
Also, as for my pics, my reasons for using bases, I get bored fairly easy, and I for some reason loose motivation to draw on paper and pencil, also I just find it a bit easier, I don't wanna have to deal with having to erase and redraw the same thing over because I can't get it right, and then deal with annoying erase marks that I can't get rid of.
Okay, so I'll still have to erase and redraw, but it's alot quicker than on paper.
Okay, yes I do put more time and effort in them. That usually takes up...like, almost an entire day, which in all honesty, I wish It didn't cause I'd like to do other things during that d
