#SixWordStories: Monthly ShowcaseA type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.#SixWordStories: Monthly Showcase2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In our feature articles, we will be showcasing six word stories submitted to Freestyle folder.

Yet we all do it. Either aware or unaware.
It all starts when we see an artist here whose work we like a lot.
Most of us have been there. Seeing the work of an artists that hits a soft spot in you, for whatever reason that might be.
You admire it, but at the same time you feel sad because you realize your level is still miles away from this artist, and you will probably never be able to do the same.
But despite everything, you start following this person. And you keep following him.
Because somewhere deep in your soul, you hold the believe --or rather, hope-- that when you watch it long enough, it will reveal it's tricks.
That it will inspire you in some way. And that you'll be able to do the same.
Unconsciously, we all build images of our idol.
It's human nature, I guess. We fill in all the blanks. The things that we don't know from this person.
Because an idol isn't a person anymore at that point. It has become an ico

My Two cents on Portfolio ReviewsYou know, I see quite a bit of portfolio on a regular basis, and even more so when I go to comic con and CTN.My Two cents on Portfolio Reviews2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This time around was the same thing, I saw quite a few portfolios. Some good ones and some that miss the mark.
There were a few in particular that caught my eye.. a few extremely good ones, and a few that just didn't work, and I wanted to try and share my opinions about portfolios in general.
This is just my point of view, based on MY experience and definitely not a definitely law, rule, or "must do". Just what I noticed in many student's and young professional's portfolios.
The first thing that strikes me is how similar portfolios can be from one student to another..I can almost always tell when one student is from Art Center, San Jose State, Otis, Sheridan or any other major school. It's a good thing and a bad thing. Mainly a bad thing though
Just a few personal thoughts on portfolios since I just came back from comic con and saw a ton over there.

Duel of the fates

Famously said by many, “Ninety percent of success is showing up.” How true it is about a soul killing combination: looking at what our own first efforts in any endeavor, particularly art, result in, and then looking at the works of far more experienced artists. Giving up always seems the logical, if panicked,
Womens Rights againHonestly Tired of itWomens Rights again10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I’m honestly sick and tired of making comics or journals or whatever about women’s rights. But it seems like every week there’s a new story about how some asshole guy makes some sort or sexist remark, or how women are being excluded from some place, or killed in others... I’m so sick and tired of it all. I wish I didn’t have to talk about it all the time because I think “women’s rights” are really just part of having “common sense,” but apparently the rest of geek/gaming culture doesn’t think that way.
I was going to make a couple of comics for SYAC elaborating on these recent issues, but I just don’t feel like it anymore. I don’t want SYAC to become a preach-wagon for Women’s Right’s issues more than they already have. So instead I’m bringing you the rundown in this journal instead of making more comics about them.

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunderstood subject

Character Design: An introductionCharacter Design: An introduction2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

the children eager couldn't wait to celebrate like every other year,
Unfortunately today a call came to many,
I'm sorry to have to tell you this but your child will not get to see those christmas lights a plenty,
Instead you will be burrying them in the cemetary,

be strong for them and we'll be strong for them too,
Tonight before I lay myself to end this long sad day,
I won't forget to fold my hands and pray.

This is for the 20 children and 6 adults who lost their lives today. It makes me sad that those young ones didn't get to bring in the new year with their families. Not to mention the adults who had families also. It's really sad, but we can't hate the man who killed them because we don't have that right, though I'm sure we all agree that he dissapointed us by hurting so many people in such a short time. But

Introduction to Printing Techniques: Part 1IntroductionIntroduction to Printing Techniques: Part 14 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Printmaking is a process where multiple original images, prints, are made by printing from one original source onto paper or other chosen print surface. The original plate is called matrix and it can be made of various materials. The image is transferred from the matrix using different printmaking techniques either by hand or by using a press.
The prints created by printmaking process are original artworks having an element of originality, so they are not considered as copies. Each print is signed, titled and numbered by the artist. The impressions printed from the same matrix are forming an edition.
This article is divided into two parts and it introduces shortly some printmaking techniques with artwork examples.
The Part 1 introduces relief printing techniques such as linocut and woodcut.
The Part 2 introduces intaglio printing

It has come to our attention that a sizeable majority of you are having your six word stories declined by us pending approval during submission. If they are not declined, then they barely scrape through. Writing on behalf of the admins here in this group, we have discussions on what is acceptable and what is not, and the amount of pieces that are not acceptable has increased in the past few months.
The concept of a six word story can be difficult to understand, though writing a six word story can be even more difficult for some. As a result, we strongly suggest that everyone revisit what a story is and is not, specifically this blog in which we have underlined some features on what makes a six word
