Back Our British Rail HeritageHello to all my watchers.Back Our British Rail Heritage2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What follows is an open email to the Office of Rail Regulation, regarding recent proposals which could hurt charter train operation in the UK considerably. Currently, if a charter train is delayed up to the point that it delays other service trains, the operating company in charge of the train is only liable for a maximum £5000 penalty fine. If the fine amount exceeds £5k, Network Rail picks up the remainder. Under new proposals, the £5000 cap will be lifted, and operating companies will be responsible for the full fine amount no matter how large, so if a delay runs up a £15000 bill, the operating company has to pay in full.
This is my email direct to the ORR, also forwarded to the NRM York and the NRM Shildon, and shortly will also be forwarded onto the PM David Cameron, DPM Nick Clegg, leader of the opposition Ed Miliband MP, Secretary of State for Transport Patrick McLoughlin MP, Mayor of London Boris Johnson and the London Museum of Transport:

Chakra What If contest, THE WINNERS!Greetings everyone, this is Arven, finally bringing you the results of Chakra – What If contest!Chakra What If contest, THE WINNERS!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First off, I'd like to say that it was really, REALLY tough to decide the winners. Everyone did such a fantastic job, and I'm honoured that so many people decided to participate in this project, either by submitting entries or by offering prizes Truly, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
As I said, picking only two winners per theme was truly hard. That's why I decided to select six runner-ups too, two per theme! Each runner-up will get a sketch, either drawn by me, or by Sally-Ce
And now, let us get to the core of the subject – the winners!
Theme 1: What if – Powers
Simply hilarious! I love how you showed not one, not two, but the whole gang of seven reacting to their powers being mixed up! You win a sketch from Sally-Ce

Petty Drama vs KindnessI'm so over petty drama and egotistical people. Been there done that when I was like 16 years old and I'm so tired of it. Don't get me involved in your drama because I honestly, do not care.Petty Drama vs Kindness2 years ago in Personal More Like This
All I want to do is draw and talk about art and fuck around like the derp I am. Enjoy my life.
Not stress over stupid crap and get myself involved in something that isn't worth any time or effort put into it in the first place. Some people need to get over themselves and there need to belittle others or at least leave me out of it..
I'm tired of the notes asking me to "Troll this person because she clearly referenced a piece of my art!" or "Excuse me, but my character had shades of brown before your character did" or "This person is copying your style" Or "This person took my idea! Can you help me!?" No. No I won't. Stahp it. D:

RandomI'm having a boring moment at school right now so listed some of my life goals to fill the boringness.Random2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. First earn crapton of money. Somehow.
2. Spend it all by accidentally falling into a pile of commissions.
3. Earn another crapton of money.
4. Spend it on the following (no particular order required):
- One-eyed Bibarel plushie. I want Molla plush to hang around with in conventions.
- Find a good fursuit maker somewhere and ask if they could use their awesome fursuit making powers in making hand puppets instead. I really want Wurr puppets.
- Actually Wurr plushies sound pretty awesome too. But I really want those puppets.
- Cat skull. Domestic one (stay away from anything that even smells like being listed on CITES and you know how many feline species are listed there)
- More commissions. Never too many commissions.
- Make people happy.
- Wolf skull replica, because real wolf is CITES. Do not mess with CITES.
- Cat. Living one. My life needs a cat.
- Oh, and pay off tha

QuantificationQuantificationQuantification9 months ago in Personal More Like This
One of the things I hate about the internet is that everything must be quantifiable. Without a proper source, no one will believe you, no matter how reliable your original info was when you received it. It doesn't matter if you heard it from a professor giving a lecture in college, if you read it in a book, read a report by a scientist, or saw a documentary that went into elaborate detail... if there isn't an internet equivalent, then you're seen as a compulsive liar.
Case in point, recently someone mentioned that my sketches look better than my finished artwork and I responded by telling them that there was science that helped back up why that phenomenon exists. But since I couldn't remember the source, I got trolled hardcore for saying that. Today, however, I stumbled upon a close enough equivalence. Here's a quote:
The sketchiness of line art mimics the natural lack of clarity in our peripheral vision. When we look at the real wo
A Scandal in BohemiaA Scandal in the Sherlock Holmes Canon?A Scandal in Bohemia3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This particular story gets so much attention and is probably the one story where fans most likely part and go different ways. For some reason if you think of Sherlock Holmes you think of Irene Adler just as quickly as of Moriarty. This woman has appeared in only one story and still is so dominantly in our minds when we read the others. There are so many other women in the stories, some I consider to be even cleverer as Irene, but they are simply forgotten. I guess it is two things that make us remember Irene so clearly.
For one it is the lack of her actual appearance and description in the story. Similar to Moriarty she is mentioned but never really shown and therefore our imagination carries us away. We give her meaning because she is hardly described, mysterious and hard to catch (in not the way you catch a ball when its thrown at you... but the way it looks and flies and behaves. xD )
The other reason is Watson’s account of the s

It's currently on Youtube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWbr5z1Uu_U
There may be an issue watching it outside the UK, but if you've an interest in gaming culture I'm sure you can track it down elsewhere.
It's well worth a watch.
You'd be surprised at what holds the #1 spot!
Inspiring GamesI’ve been asked to list which video/computer games I like. I actually compiled a list a while back, with the intention of writing something slightly lengthier than a journal update.Inspiring Games2 months ago in Personal More Like This
The list is not so much what I think are good games – games age and some of them now play like a dog – but they are titles that most inspired me. They either introduced me to new concepts or changed how I saw things.
I won’t go into detail on why each was important to me (that’ll take too long to write!) but if you’re familiar with both my work and these titles, you’ll probably spot where I picked up certain things from.
(Listed in the order of which I first played them)
Cops and Robbers (C64)
The Last Ninja (C64)
Spy vs Spy 2 (C64)
Sonic the Hedgehog (Megadrive)
Sim City (Mac)
Prince of Persia (Mac)
Diggers (Amiga CD32)
Monkey Island 2 (Mac)
TIE Fighter (PC)
Alone in the Dark (PC)
Ultima Underworld (PC)
'Don't Feed the Trolls' needs to die.I wish I was joking, but another bout of sexual harassment against women creeped up this week (only days after the Might No. 9 fiasco). This time in the form of an indi video game a woman is trying to get green-lit to Steam. The game is about depression and is just suppose to help people understand what it’s like living with it, and for this “grievous” action she’s been the target of harassment campaigns. She’s received harassing phone calls, death threats, her personal information and addresses posted for everyone to see. She’s had to change her phone number to stop the harassment, and even pulled the game originally to try and calm this crap down.'Don't Feed the Trolls' needs to die.7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Bravely, she’s decided to post it anyway and is trying desperately to showcase how awful, hurtful, and disgusting our gaming community can be when we stay silent.
You can “justify” your reasons for hating her. You can convince yourself that sending her harassment and hate messages is for

BUT BOY DO I FEEL GOOD ABOUT MY ART.
and you should too!
Tips on becoming the artist you want to be
✸ note that these are tips on how I've started- everyone is different! Learn however you want to learn!
1. STOP DRAWING ONLY FOR OTHERS AND JUST START DRAWING FOR YOU
Ok so this for me was the hardest step. I never ever drew for enjoyment. Even when I drew my characters I wasn't really having fun? What you should do is stop all commissions. Stop all trades. And give yourself one day to draw to make you happy. Even if you don't improve at all you will start loving your art! I know I do!
2. FIND ART THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY
What is better than finding a style that you really love? Than looking at all this art from people that inspires you? NOTHING. (okay maybe besides starbucks and kittens but still!)
when you fin
Troll pollution?What's up with all the troll accounts of really bad taste lately?Troll pollution?1 week ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I wish dA would simply ban these people, when they are polluting this site on purpose and act like total jerks screaming for attention? (I mean, it's not even funny at all.) There are these people I have to keep reporting, since they upload commissioned works and my clients are really unhappy about it. Once it gets taken down, I have to report it AGAIN AND AGAIN since it get reposted again!? I have MUCH better things to do than deal with kids like this.
And they accuse the real artists to steal from them when the trust is so obvious? What kind of trolling is that, are they even trying?
And the death threat jokes...
This have gone way too far beyond stupidity x__x
I'm not sure if people realise they can get in LEGIT trouble for doing things like this? (but they are probably too young and ignorant to care) are they really that desperate and have nothing better and productive to do? That's really... sad.
Now it's just extre

My Progression as an Animator at DisneyA friend of mine is writing a book on animation fundamentals and asked me for a "paragraph or two" (which I can't do) on the subject of timing. I considered it and ended up writing about my progression of learning while a Disney animator in the traditional animation days. It was good therapy for me to really think this through and consider the order of things. I hope you enjoy it. "Like" or "fav" this so others will see it too.

My Progression As A Disney Animator
by Tom Bancroft
Walt Disney is quoted as saying that it takes 10 years to make a great animator.
When I was first coming out of California Institute of the Arts and joining a Disney internship in 1988, hearing that quote was devastating. 10 years? That's FOREVER! I wanted to be a full-fledged Disney animator in TWO years! I rationalized that that was a way of thinking from the 40s and today, we move at a quicker pace, so-
