(...) Everyone has a moment when they think “I am a bad artist.” and they think that because they see a level of skill they have not achieved yet. If this is the case, every artist ever is a bad artist, because every artist ever has had some idea, some plan, some goal of a skill level or creation that they have not achieved yet. And that’s good. Learning and growth and moving forward are all good things, so instead of trying to be some fictionalized version of a good artist, let’s all be bad artists together.

EXTRA C. - Vanellope Von AKB48 Maeda? XD ENGLISH…EXTRA C. - Vanellope Von AKB48 Maeda? XD2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wreck-It Ralph recently opened in Japan, where it’s titled Sugar Rush. Besides enjoying the flick, Japanese moviegoers are doing something else: Comparing the character Vanellope to a real idol.
Namely, Japanese moviegoers are saying Vanellope looks like AKB48 member Ami Maeda. Yes, their eye colour is different, but their eyebrows, hair and facial expressions seem similar, no?
Maeda herself sees the resemblance. “Even today, while walking outside, I was told I looked like Vanellope,” she told Japanese TV. “I said, ‘Oh, thanks!’”
According to Walt Disney Japan, there’s certainly a possibility that Maeda was an influence.
While Sarah Silverman voiced the English version, Disney* seems to have looked to Japanese fashion and anime for Vanellope’s character design. What’s more, AKB48 contributed to the soundtrack, performing the song “Sugar Rush”. So maybe!

Turbo, and why his fanbase is so large.Oh Turbo... Why are you so popular? I mean, You appeared in the movie for like what, 30 seconds? Well I'm here to answer why!Turbo, and why his fanbase is so large.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I first thought of making this after my "Turbo: Fanbase" drawing ( shown here http://koolkakashi123.deviantart.com/art/Turbo-Fanbase-347693911 ). I thought it Had finally stumped me. Turns out I needed some rest, so after I got up this morning, I finally had my revelation!
Reason 1: Cute factor. Many people find this character adorable, yellow teeth and all. Why? Because he falls under all the categories under which people consider "Cute". ie: big head, big eyes, shortness, chubbyness, lisp. Humans tend to find these things cute. Why you ask? well check out this video and it will explain everything you need to know about cuteness http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0zConOPZ8Y . Also his helmet and racer duds are ADORABLE!!! Ahem *clears throat*
Reason 2: Personality. This character has a hilarious personality! Always being flamboyant, sarcastic, and over-all g

When Ralph goes to Tappers bar and runs into the Hero's Duty soldier for the first time, John Musker and I did those caricatures of game celebrities on the wall.
The idea was to have it replicate the feel of a famous New York restaurant called Sardi's, where the walls are lined with caricatures of celebrities.
Here are a few of the ones I did.
Our director, Rich Moore.
Big thanks to Rich for giving me the chance to do these!

This Mindless Zombie won't Sell OutIm not sure if its the same for you guys, but to me, when I just sit down and draw, I feel extremely relaxed and like I am in my own personal space, and I become a bit like a zombie. Somtimes I like to listen to podcast and music, sometimes I just listen to nothing and just let my brain wander while I draw, somtimes I talk to people while I draw. Drawing is a very intersting and relaxing activity that doesn't require a lot of thinking, I'm pretty much on autopilot when I draw, like a mindless zombie, and I love it. I can't do that when I am writing or studying though, like how I am writing this journal, I can't put on a podcast and write at the same time, because I need attention to both for it to make sense, one mind cannot multitask two story driven activities. I duno, I find that interesting. Like how I can't read while having a conversation either, I am not sure if any human can actually? If you can, please let me know of your superpowers. I may wanna meet you, and steal your powerThis Mindless Zombie won't Sell Out2 months ago in Personal More Like This

LiveStream Movie Marathon!IT'S DONE =3
So yeah, last week was a blast of nostalgia and memories, mixed with modern awesomeness, all provided by the wonderful stories and visuals created by the Walt Disney Animation Studios !
I’m glad I was able to put all together for said instance almost on the last minute LOL And I had a lot fun doing it, discovering and rediscovering many classics I barely remember or actually was never able to watch before; that was something that honestly, felt like a goal accomplished for me XD
This marathon also helped me to understand the many achievements, yet also misconceptions around, the WDA Studios…
Just to make the point: the idea of Disney only making fairy tales is not true, it’s only what they’re best know by… but in fact, there’s no absolute prominence from said subject related to other ones they’ve worked on;

Happy Anniversary (Felix and Calhoun)"So, do you have any plans for tonight?" Ralph asked the small handyman that walked beside him. The arcade had just closed and they were walking across the roof of the apartment building. "Happy anniversary, by the way," He added awkwardly at the end.Happy Anniversary (Felix and Calhoun)2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Felix looked up at Ralph and smiled, "Thank you brother! And no, I didn't plan anything." He admitted confidently.
"What, Felix didn't plan anything for his first anniversary?" Ralph teased as he remembered the elaborate plan he did for Sergeant Calhoun's birthday. It had been grand and a complete success. Therefore Felix must be joking, but the small man didn't answer "No, seriously?" Ralph lifted his eye brows almost in concern.
Felix laughed and rested a friendly hand on his brother's arm "I know, I know! I just thought that this time I could let her decide what to do. I'm going to say yes to everything she requests." He stood tall and happy. Ralph burst out in loud riotous laughter.
"Felix you know she's probably going to do
Wide content got Narrowed? The FIX??Okay, I got a blast of comments and notes recently because the people who were using the Wide Content code for their custom box widget stopped working.Wide content got Narrowed? The FIX??4 months ago in Personal More Like This
What the heck was the reaction for everyone!!
I know my friend, I know!!! Even my boxes are affected because of that.
The reason: It is due to the recent changes in the codes of devianART.com website (by the admins). And please do not go an ask them about it because they aren't going to fix it!! See the response below:
However, I have a GOOD news and a BAD news for you.
The BAD news is that the previous codes aren't going to work anymore.
The GOOD news (somewhat) is that I am working to find an alternate solution for this. I am also getting few suggestions from others for a workaround...Kudos for them and t

Someone linked me this video after seeing my Fashion Savvy Samus comic, and it quickly became apparent that a LOT of people defending Samus’s god-awful rocket boots were using THIS as their basis for argument. So, since this is the internet, I’m gonna respond to this video interjecting whenever I hear something I agree or disagree with.
1. I agree that we should separate Other M Samus from the rest of cannon based on the fact that it was conceived over a retcon of the character.
2. I agree that a lot of the hatred for Other M Samus came from her BADLY localized English translation and voice acting. I’ve stated many times that if the game had been left in Japanese with English subtitles, I sincerely doubt as many people would’ve had a problem with her “monologuing” than they do with the English version.
3. I do not agree that you should be “offended” that mal
Almost is Far from Actually (Felix and Calhoun)Sergeant Calhoun didn't leave his side after that moment. Even while Ralph and Venellope were doting over Felix, she was close by anxiously waiting, as if he was going to disappear any moment. She wished they could be alone, but she waited patiently until the celebration was over.Almost is Far from Actually (Felix and Calhoun)2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Felix could see the preoccupation in her eyes, and finally broke away from everyone and took her home.
As soon as the front door closed Felix was embraced in a tight hug by his wife. He knew this hug wasn't happy, but solemn, and almost mournful. He hugged her back and rested his head against her shoulder.
"It's ok, I'm here," He murmured and felt her tighten her grip around him. He rubbed her back in an attempt to console her.
Tamora didn't want to say anything. She was afraid that if she did something stupid would come out. Her worst fear had almost come true today. She had almost lost him, and just the thought made her chest tighten and feel barren. The fear she wasn't used to settled in making he
3 Legged Cat -updated-Update at the bottom!3 Legged Cat -updated-1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Mkay so, I have been disgustingly depressed this month. Earlier today, however, my cousin showed up unannounced, kidnapped me and took me to the Mall. Inside the mall was a pet store where any cat over 6 months was FREE to take home, plus a certificate for a free veterinarian visit! It's no secret to my family that I love cats, and I've been wanting one for a long, long time. (Though I've been hesitant, as any of my older followers might remember Spangles. R.I.P.)
So I walk in, and the place is flooded with people. Understandable, it's black Friday, after all. Second thing I notice is that it had about fifty dogs, and all but one were chihuahuas. |D We had to go all the way to the back to find the cats, and there were only three, if you could believe it.
I have a specific type of cat I like, Domestic Longhairs. Gorgeous long fur and so fluffy. The breed is known for being especially friendly, too. First cat I saw was a prissy looking calico that hissed at us. The
