Tip of the Day: Believing is not DoingTip of the Day: A lot of times people might ask for advice and when they are told the answer, their reaction is "Oh I know that already." Believing in something isn't the same as acting upon what you believe in. Successful people DO the things they know they should do whether they like it or not.Tip of the Day: Believing is not Doing3 years ago in Personal More Like This

7 TIPS FOR THE 21-YEAR-OLD ME by Bobby Chiu
When I was a student in college working on my skills as a character designer, I’d had periods where I would sit at my desk working as hard as I could but having little to show for my efforts at the end of the day. I remember sitting there surrounded by blank pieces of paper, trying to come up with an amazing style that nobody had ever seen before. I would do one drawing and not be satisfied, so I would lay a new piece of paper over it, re-draw it with slight changes to features here and there. This would still not be good enough so I would put another piece of paper over my revision, make more minor adjustments trying to perfect this new style I was searching for.
I did this for weeks on end, tweaking and polishing over and over, working hard every day. But in the end, did I come up with a brand new style, something amazing that
Featured Artists!Hey guys! So apparently a lot of you did not get the notification about my last journal post in which I rambled about my travels to LA and Sakuracon, and announced the winners of the 50 Hand/Foot Challenge. Sorry about that! Must be one (of many) weird deviantART bugs. ^___^;Featured Artists!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
That being said, some of the winners were awarded with a feature of their art, so please take a moment to visit and check out these select images from their galleries!
A new drawing challenge should be posted later on this month. You guys have given me a lot of ideas, so thank you!
What a talented artist! So many lovely works across multiple mediums! Big fan of the costumes and lovely traditional work, but who can resist PONIES?! Awww they look so soft and cuddly!
Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)"There’s angst but it’s different. I think we’re rebelling now as a rock band. We’re trying to keep it pure, but we’re not playing victims anymore. We’ve realized that we’re one of the youngest bands at our size. So there’s a responsibility that comes with that, whether it’s to fans or to outside listeners who aren’t fans, to be the greatest American rock band. That was the goal. And it took a while to get there, but we’re just being the best My Chemical Romance that we can be."Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
“I write them wherever I may happen to be when I get hit with inspiration. A lot of times I just make notes of sentences. What I usually do is write paragraphs of free style, just really descriptive phrases and I’ll draw upon those phrases later. I try to get the sound before I get the lyrics.”

This was floating around on tumblr and I thought I'd share it here. I need to remind myself of this all the time when I'm feeling discouraged. Don't give up just keep working at it. Practice, practice, practice, etc.

PE - Project Animate Introduction + BasicsHello all and welcome to Project Educate - Animation!PE - Project Animate Introduction + Basics3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This week is going to feature stunning animation, interviews with amazing people and a strong focus on Pre-Production within Animation. Also during the week I'll have facts about animation that you might not have known about!
I'll be featuring amazing animation, helping newbies get their feet wet and how to upload your animations to deviantART. I will also be talking about web animation sensations on websites such as Youtube and Newgrounds.
Before we start, I'd like to push my Art History articles - I wrote two journals about the History of Animation up until 1990, so if you feel you dont know your Fleischers from your Windsor McCays then step this way!
Of course, though, animation exists everywhere and has done for hundreds of years! There ar
NewsHello, everyone, it's been a while! I thought I'd share with you what I've been doing these 1-2 months.News2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, well, tommorow is the deadline for giving in my animation project at school. *Sigh* I have very mixed feelings about this. It seems we'll get some additional time until 8th september to finish our projects (like adding music, painting some backgrounds) but still it seems that only 1/3 of what's been planned is going to be done by that time. In order to keep the plot going I decided to not put in some finished scenes from the middle/end of the storyboard. But no worries!- I still want to complete the animation even if it doesn't have a specific deadline.
It seems I'll have also more time to animate on my own - before the end of this month, I'll be oficially done with my school (at least for a year, that's for sure). I want to spend this year on setting up some things, finishing overdue commissions (I still have 4 and that fact alone doesn't let me sleep at night) and dra
The killjoys of dAYou know these people. "Japan isn't that great." "Wolves aren't that cool." "Yaoi sucks." "(Popular thing) is overrated!" Etc. People who express these opinions loudly, not just because they feel that way, but out of spite for the people who do like these things.The killjoys of dA3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When dealing with them, remember this - a person who tries to bring you down for simply enjoying something is usually just attempting to prove that they are a better, more sophisticated person than you are. And in that very act is the proof that they aren't nearly as sophisticated and mature as they wish they were.
So fuck 'em. Like what you like, and don't change under pressure. Because in my eyes, giving up something you like just because it makes you look like a stereotype is weak - holding on to it and proving you're more than that is strong.

A game called PathologicMore than anything this is a review of a PC game called Pathologic. Why? Because I feel the need to talk about it, and maybe, just maybe, introduce it to someone else who will also find it appealing.A game called Pathologic3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's not my impression that this game is well known at all, and that is really a shame.
There is something very special about finding something that connects perfectly with your tastes in art, your thoughts about a medium, the kind of stories you want to be told. For me it doesn't happen often, even less so with games which rarely focus on anything more than superficial entertainment - Fun to play, but easily forgotten.
Very few have explored what games are capable of as storytelling devices; as a medium that can truly engulf the player and get under their skin.
A couple of weeks ago I first heard of this Russian game from 2005 called Pathologic. I came across it while looking for indie horror games, but when it peaked my interest and I read about it, it became clear that

Should Today's Technologies Inspire?
We got to interview a visionary futurist with an eye on technology about what would inspire today's comic book writers to create our next superheroes with knowledge of real technological and scientific advancement.
You never know when it’s going to happen – that otherwise quotidian moment when you suddenly realize your entire thought process has just been tripped up and cast down a cerebral rabbit-hole destination unknown. Little did I know that what began as a typically pleasurable lunch with spyed and makepictures during the San Diego Comic-Con last year would morph into a mind-expanding mental wormhole voyage to the future courtesy of another guest at our table, JordanGreenhall, known to me only as the co-founder
The erasure of human history.Let me tell you a little bit about the House of Wisdom.The erasure of human history.2 months ago in Personal More Like This
It was founded in the 8th century, eventually becoming based in Baghdad, and was a major intellectual centre during the Islamic Golden Age. Scholars there made it their business to collect as much information as they could, from all corners of the known world. They would collect books and texts and return them home for translation. It made the people of the Islamic world among the most culturally advanced on the planet.
They constructed astronomical observatories, they forwarded the science of medicine, mathematics, chemistry, zoology, geography and cartography. They drew upon the work of both those who had come before, and their contemporaries, and then advanced it. Many inventions from the Islamic Golden Age have had a legacy that lasts up until this very day:

The winners have been announced!
Hello everyone! You all are really getting into this and making some nice stuff. It's awesome to see such talent show up to the party.
Unfortunately I have some bad news, but I also have some good news.
FIRST THE BAD NEWS
Due to real life circumstances beyond my control, there is no way I will be able to keep the end of September deadline. In fact, it just won't be possible unless I am really hasty with judging the entries or end the contest early, and either of those actions just aren't fair to you.
NOW THE GOOD NEWS
However, in order to make it up to everyone, I'm making a few changes.
First, I am extending the contest deadline by about one week making the new end date October 8, 2012. Not only does this work infinitely better for me (ie makes it possible for me to be here), but it allows you more time to add/finish/edit your entries.

For many of us, the first “art gallery” to command our attention (and constant, even daily, monitoring) in our
lives existed within the pages of the local newspaper. It was called “the movie section” and its ever-changing movie
advertisements were like little frames that rarely contained less than pure magic for young imaginations.
The Film Poster has existed since the earliest days of silent movies and the pulse-elevating excitement of the
first sight of an upcoming adventure, action, or sweeping love story that we might have only “heard good things about”
still packs a psychic punch throughout movie lovers today.
