Whatever Happened to SpongebobNo I'm not talking about that episode; I'm talking about the show. I'm genuinely curious as to what happened to the Nicktoon Spongebob Squarepants over the past ten years. It went from a charming and funny show to one of the most mean-spirited, disgusting, and perverse shows that currently exists. Rebeltaxi99, a popular cartoon reviewer always says that people are complaining that the new episodes aren't as good. That's not true. The episodes are HORRIBLE. They have ranged from annoying to vile to cruel. A drop in quality would mean that we've gone from shining stars to plain mediocrity. Instead we've gone from episodes about selling chocolate bars door-to-door to episodes featuring a grotesque infected splinter and episodes making fun of suicide. I need to know how this happened, how it was allowed to happen, and more importantly--could this happen again?Whatever Happened to Spongebob1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Now, let's get the facts out of the way. From the very beginning, Spongebob was Nickelodeon's most popular show. It got

SH*yay*Pro-life protesters on TV. Two pro-life girls going to protest at a school they don't even go to, holding up a sign with graphic pictures of dead fetuses in plain sight of students going to class. Group of students ask teacher to do something about the sign so the teacher and someone else take the sign and run for it.SH*yay*1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Then the two protesters are interviewed on Fox News and their reaction is;
"Oh, that teacher was just doing it to get attention."
Excuse me, bitch. Who was the one holding the sign with pictures of fuckin' aborted fetuses on it?
For that matter who's the one sitting in a newsroom being interviewed about the whole thing??

Real Scientific Danger of My Artistic InfluenceOne of the many complaints lobbed at me is that I have enormous influence on a younger generation and therefor it is incumbent upon me to shape up and fly right so these young tikes get the best artistic advice possible. IE: People worried that my “bad art and methods” are corrupting the next generation of artists and therefor I should stop making art altogether to prevent this.Real Scientific Danger of My Artistic Influence9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Setting aside the ignorant and harmful messages that this sends to young artists (such as the ignorant concept that all young artists only ever follow ONE artistic influence their entire life and aren’t influenced by ALL the art around them at all times), I decided to see how much credibility this “fear” actually had... using MATH.
So I have about 57,790 watchers on DA. I’m not counting other sites like Facebook or my website because there’s obviously some overlap, and some of the people who hate me will fill in that gap. So roughly 57,790 people on the planet watch me.

Art StylesThis is not some journal about personal woes. I just want to talk briefly about some attitudes towards realistic (and other) art styles that I've come across that... It just kinda seriously bothers me that people think that way about me and other people and themselves.Art Styles10 months ago in Personal More Like This
So here it is; Drawing realism does not equal elitism.
I don't draw realistically because I think it makes me better than other people and I don't know anyone else who does either. I draw realistically because I like drawing that way. Because I'm very particular about details and drawing little tiny details makes me ridiculously happy. It's just how I like to draw.
It doesn't make me better than you or anyone else.
I don't think any of you are below me because you draw anime/manga or cartoon styles. More power to you because I tend to struggle with it, honestly.
And if we all drew the exact same way, all our art would be the same and it would be boring as hell.

Or madam. As you prefer.
I have an update- the reports are true. Volume 4 pencils are done! Every story page in the book is penciled, and merely awaits color, your eminence.
Chapter 10 is blocked, and nearly all of Chapter 11. Chapter 12 is in the works. So I ought to be able to bulldoze in and start shading up a storm. I'm hoping I can KO about a Chapter's worth of shading every month.
To hit that stride, I'll have to take a break here and build a Prelude pad, KO a few commissions, try to get caught up on e-mails and... egads, when is the last time I replied to someone in the art accounts?
Bad, bad David.
I'm being stingy with samples from Volume 4 here because I want to avoid spoilers. But have some random art advice:

Now You guys might notice why my rant Trilogy on "You know who" is on private as of now.
Because recently on what I just discovered is that "You Know who" is beginning to falsely flagging the videos and trying to get them taken down.
I am not taking the risk to having my rants being taken down because someone can't handle the freakin truth.
Until then, the Trilogy Rant will not be on public for awhile, cause I do not wish to have my Youtube account terminated for bullshit reasons.
Make sure to spread the word about this. ~Aqua
Thoughts on saddles in MLPOr "my brain at three in the morning".Thoughts on saddles in MLP1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I find myself puzzled at the thoughts of saddles in the MLP universe. In my exploits of mentally roleplaying characters for my comics they seem to see saddles as fashion statements, while a good portion of the Brony fandom consider saddles to be just short of sex toys.
But consider these;
Mind you they put these things on with the full intent of wearing them in public. If saddles really are a fetish thing in Magical Ponyland then why in
Equestriathe world are they wearing the things in a public place, where others are bound to see them and form not-so-safe thoughts in their heads?
I will simply continue to believe they're a fashion statement don't you mix your dirty thoughts with my ponies D:<

I saw them as a challenge that I always happily a
