Adopt Groups list [365 groups]Adopt Groups list [365 groups]1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've had a few people ask me for my list of adopt groups I submit too so I thought I would just post this for you guys.
Its easier to copy paste group names when submitting to a lot. :>
There are a few different sections in the document.
○ Points only groups and Cute are groups have one page each only and are at the bottom of the document.
○ Cash/money groups are at the top with 13 pages, 25 groups per page.
When submitting auction adopts I split it up and submit to only a certain number of pages a day throughout the day. Dunno if it actually helps but.

(A) Theme : Friendship/ Courtship/ Hatred/ Love
Show any Saiunkoku Monogatari character(s) expressing any kind of emotion, such as love, hate, jealousy, envy, joy, sorrow, etc. (It does not even have to be emotion towards another human … it can be towards an inanimate object, like Shurei's love of money! ); or show the characters in a relationship, such as friendship, courtship, kinship (brother-brother, brother-sister, father-daughter, etc.), rivals, mentor-disciple, master-servant, boss-subordinate, courtesan-client, and anything else you can think of!

WALT DISNEY ANIMATION STUDIOS: Steve AndersonEmotional CreaturesWALT DISNEY ANIMATION STUDIOS: Steve Anderson2 years ago in Personal More Like This
letter written by Steve Anderson, director at Walt Disney Animation Studios
"Artists are emotional creatures. We feel things deeply. We see the world around us, react to it and base our work off of those reactions. Our work represents ourselves. It’s us. Not just what our bodies can produce but what our minds and hearts have to say.
We want people to like what we do. If we didn’t, we’d just draw, paint, sculpt, dance, act and write in our own living room with no documentation or recording of it. But we don’t do that because we want our work to be seen. We want to express ourselves to people and, in turn, produce a reaction in them. Our emotions create the art and our art creates emotions.
But there are days when our emotions get the best of us. They let us down. They d
Solved Wacom Intuos 5 Issue with Paint Tool Sai!!Hi Guys!Solved Wacom Intuos 5 Issue with Paint Tool Sai!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Gosh....real long time since last post, but I thought I should put this up for those who are suffering the same issue with Wacom tablets and paint tool Sai.
Issue: I recently bought an intuos 5 to replace my old previous graphics tablet. I installed the intuos 5 with seemingly no troubles at all. It worked on photoshop just great, but as soon as I tried it on paint tool sai, it resulted in terribly lagging flat lines, with no pressure whatsoever. I thought that it might need an up-to-date driver so I d/l that from the wacom site and installed it - still with no luck. I removed the file utility preferences and still nothing. I figured i'd give up on using paint tool sai forever until I found this post:
Solution: "Unplug the tablet, uninstall the drivers and restart Windows. Go to device manager and remove any remaining Wacom entries there from the HID and Mice sections. Also remove remaining files wintab*.* from SYSTEM32 and SYSWOW64 as we

CritStop 03 - Art school vs self teaching?Greetings Concepteez!CritStop 03 - Art school vs self teaching?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Apologies for missing out on the CritStop last week. I was at a weekend long concept-design workshop which didn't leave me with much time to do a post.
I might run down some of the things we did in the workshop in a future post, but this week I thought I would do something a little bit different. I have been getting quite a few queries over the last few weeks about making the choice between formal training courses such as university or college over that of self-teaching and using online resources and short courses. One of these was Nyte-Tyme who wrote:
"I mentioned before that I am currently attending a school called ------- University. So far, my first semester of a Junior year here has been bad. Art history classes (which I think are somewhat necessary) a Physics of Light and Color class. A web design class and a video and audio class which was essentially a film class after awhile.
