Prophecy of 7 picked up by Disney/Hyperion!Hey guys,Prophecy of 7 picked up by Disney/Hyperion!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I haven't written any journals in a while due to college assignments and life. But I thought I would just write a short journal about a really amazing thing happening a few months ago. I received an email from Joann Hill who is the art director of Disney/Hyperion publishing, and she said that they wanted to buy the rights from my 'Prophecy of 7' painting.
Apparently they saw this edit of my painting, in which someone has slapped on the title 'Blood of Olympus' and they now wanted to use it for a poster accompanying the final book to sold in select stores like Walmart.
You can see Rick's post on Tumblr regarding the case here :
Anyway, I still can't believe it to this day, and I'm just so happy that I can take part in the Percy Jackson series however little. I just feel so honoured and blessed and I want to thank all my followers who have been very supportive of my work. Thank y

In Defense Of Art, The Artist, And The TruthNote: This journal entry is a response to another one, "In Defense Of Making A Living Through Art" by Droemar. My argument began as a long winded comment that mirrored the sentiments expressed there, but attempted to provide a different perspective on the matter as well. It has now been added here by request. I encourage everyone to give the original journal a read, as the subject matter it tackles is important, both mercilessly heartfelt and honest. At times it requires great bravery to stand up and admit the truth; I commend the artists that do it every day of their lives, but perhaps it's time the rest of the world learn something of courage too. I suppose this was my attempt to do so, and whether or not it changes anything in your life, is up to you.In Defense Of Art, The Artist, And The Truth2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This whole issue pisses me off.
Let me start by saying that I don't know if this post, my post, changes anything. It probably doesn't, but it's a perspective that I think desperately needs to be hear

Medium - Tilt-shift effect on Photoshop.Hello, I'm back with tutorials, and for the first time it's about edition on Photoshop. The objective will be making a miniature looking picture (tilt-shift). I'd say the perfect photos for this effect are those taken from heights, like on top of a building or on top of a mountain or something similar. Nevertheless, you can experiment with other kids of pictures and then tell me or show me the results. I'm always interested on knowing more.Medium - Tilt-shift effect on Photoshop.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For this tutorial, I've chosen an archive photo from Paris, taken on top of the Arc de Triomphe, and showing La Défense in the background:
And after some basic edition on Lightroom 3.4 I get this:
I'll explain now how ot get the tilt-shift edition step by step:
1st - We open the picture on Photoshop, and we turn on the "fast mask" by clicking here:
2nd - With pencils at 2500 and strenght at 0%, we paint the area that we want to look unfocused to make the tilt-shift.
3rd - We turn off the fast mask mode, and deselect and invert the selection:

"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
2014: This is the 3rd year of the project. There are many people supporting it, featuring it in their journal and offering art. BUT... There have been NO trees planted for it in the last year (I don't count mine). So, instead of talking about it, how about getting up and actually planting a tree, if you are able to? There is a lot of wonderful art waiting for you as a reward!
Trees are important, valuable and necessary to our very existence. It's not too hard to believe that, without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. Trees are the largest and longest living organisms on earth. To grow tall the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. It is able to take water and

Voice In COTW?Hey folks! I need some ambient crowd chatter for the new COTW (which I finished animating, how I just have to regather voices and then send it to our musical friend Dan to get a score), and I thought instead of finding a generic one, I'd make one from whoever wants to send in stuff? You can say whatever you want (no swears please), just make it vaguely relevent to Cow of the Wild and in the tone that's requested.Voice In COTW?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

2. Luna says, "Everyone stahp, this isn't cool" and the crowd mumbles things like, "who's that?" "what's she saying?" and just other curious questions about who she is and why she's challenging Fang.
3. Someone speaks up to agree with Luna and suddenly everyone is very conflicted - they mutter things like "maybe she's right" "maybe he's wrong" "what i

The Day of Thor and the 7 PlanetsThe Day of Thor and the 7 PlanetsThe Day of Thor and the 7 Planets3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today is not just my birthday; it is also the day of the Norse thunder god Thor, after who I was named. It is a day we call "Thursday". Perhaps you never realized it.
In fact, all the 7 days of the week are named after gods and "planets".
The word planet comes from the ancient Greek word planētēs, which means wanderer or wandering. A planet was defined as a celestial object that was moving against the background stars, meaning it was a close object, wandering across the sky. In ancient times, you could see 7 of such objects with the bare eye, and thus we had 7 planets. Those are Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, the sun and the moon.
Vettius Valens, a Greek astrologer, was the first person we know of who associated the days of the week with gods. He wrote it down in the year 170 and used the following order: Sun, Moon, Ares, Hermes, Zeus, Aphrodite, and Cronos.
The planetary week names passed from Greece to the
Disney Faces Backlash over Merida RedesignMain points:Disney Faces Backlash over Merida Redesign2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Disney department in charge of the princess line is apparently male-dominated, which explains the careless thought behind the redesign
Brenda Chapman (Merida's creator) has officially voiced her outrage regarding the matter
Disney has replaced pictures of new Merida on their website with old Merida, which likely means they are working on redoing the atrocious work they've released

Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKSSo... that last journal was a doosie wasn't it? 500+ comments and counting! Yikes. I can always count on Anita Sarkeesian to give me tons of views, lol. All joking aside, that was a very serious batch of discussions. Anytime we talk about sexism and objectification of women in gaming or geek culture, it's sure to get a lot of responses.Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sadly since Anita is such a hot-topic around the internet, there was more than one person who were trying to claim that there actually isn't ANY issue with the game industry involving sexism at all. To them, this whole idea that women are marginalized or objectified or treated badly both in the gaming industry and in geek culture is just false. It doesn't exist. And any attempt to explain why we need to change things is inherently flawed because there's no reason to do so.
So in the interest of trying to debunk that bullshit, I made a list of sources I accumulated around the internet to prove that this is indeed a problem. I think everyone can benefit f
