The X-23 Tenth Anniversary Initiative.X-23 reaches her tenth anniversary this year. For every character this is a milestone, but for X-23 herself it's a biggie. With her being part of the X-Family, being named X-23, and god knows how many other X references can be screened in there, this anniversary is one that should be done large. It's her X(That's roman numeral 10) anniversary afterall.The X-23 Tenth Anniversary Initiative.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I'm calling out to all fans.
From Auguest 2nd, 2013 to October 23, 2013 an effort should be put forward to share new original works featuring her or fan pieces about her. Let's see if we the fans can unite to each provide for this window of oppurtunity so none of us are overwhelmed and all of us have much to enjoy.
August 2nd, 2003 was when she first debuted to the public through the X-Men Evolution episode.
October 23rd, or 10-23 as many write dates, is the extrapolation of her name. X-23 also means 10-23 when you break down the roman numeral X.
We also have 2013... Which is an anagram for 10-23. S

Traditional Art is Dying...?The Digital Age...This is something I've had to say for a while...!Traditional Art is Dying...?The Digital Age...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is something I've wanted to share for some time now and is something :iconGiname: and I (and a number of other worried artists) have spoken about for YEARS. I've never shared it (entirely) here on DA for a number of reasons (one of which being I didn't want to insult anyone) but now this issue is inhibiting my ability to enjoy art...
I recently saw a program for sale that had a box that said "Now ANYONE can be an artist! Create the look of oil paint, pastels and water colors in an instant!"
The rage and disgust i felt was nothing new. It was something I have since my first year on DeviantART.
I was inspired by the lovely :iconjael-randell: to write this. She wrote a similar journal sharing her views on this issue and kindly mentioned me in it. Here's her journal if you'd like to read it yourself

Most of my IRL close acquaintances and friends always ask me "Rob, why you work so much? Why don't you go out with us like you used to?" "Man, we used to hoop all the time dude, when are we getting back to the court?"
My response usually consists of "I... just got things to do." And I do. I'm practically at the computer almost 18 hours a day, hacking away at the game. When my wife gets home, I spend a couple hours with her until she goes to sleep, and then I finish up whatever work until I hit the sack.
Then they'd be the ones to go on how much they hate their job. Actually, its pretty funny: One of my closest dudes has an artistic background in music. He could be killing it in the indie scene even; he's a very talented dude. But man, he's dealing with chick-o-drama, always spending his free time (now on GTA5) playing games or going to the bar, and then have the audacity to go on how much he hate his jo

:.Nightmare.:He remembered the pain of losing his mother and the anger and helplessness he felt along with it. Jumping from rooftop to rooftop, he could see his target walking head of him. Quickly flipping off the rooftop, the building that was holding the cable he was attached to was demolished by an abnormal titan that smacked into the building hard, causing Eren to fall along with the rubble. Under the weight of the bricks that trapped him in place he felt the same helplessness his mother must've felt that day. How cruel history was to repeat itself like this, he couldn't move and couldn't transform, he was trapped like a bird in a cage. Trying to move, Eren felt the rubble press down on him harder, crushing him slowly as a titan came over at a painfully slow rate. It was like it was mocking him and showing exactly how helpless the solider really was. "Dammit...!" He didn't want to die here!

Wohoo! It is done! All the bios of the main RD characters are done! Woo! You know what this mean? Well, I'll tell you!
First, some people have been asking me if I am going to give those bio sheets for any kind of use. Well, I am happy to tell you that yes, I am giving them for free use. I just need to go through the PSD file and check the layers are named right and it is as simple as it can be. (there are MANY layers). I'll also change the fonts as the ones I was using are not common and apparently not free either so I am not comfortable giving them out with the PSD file. So, let me do that first but you can expect the Bio sheet very soon.
As for RD, there is still the minor character bios and especially Elisa's that I need to do but I think it has been long enough... Yes, I think it is finally time to start updating Dear Departed again! I'll catch up where the story is right now, maybe edit some of the old pages (dialog mostly) but yes! RD is back!

4 years ago 20. Feb. 2009, XNALara version 1.0 was born,
developed by :icondusanpavlicek:, the original creator of XNALara.
Now, 164 versions later http://xnalara.home-forum.com/t170-xnalara-xna-posing-studio-latest-version , XNALara/XPS 10.9.5 will support Speech Bubbles
I know it would be a lot of work, with a new menu needed, etc - so I don't hold my breath ! But it would beat having to save each image and load them into a tool like Photoshop or Movie-maker to add the subtitles...
... We love a XPS that would give more support to story-tellers. You too? ...

Acabo de ver que Damleg se retiró por completo dejando su fan/manga de Naruto, por que sus fans se pusieron super bravos y dramáticos. ¿Por que? Por que ella iba a vender su trabajo, iba a comisionar por cada pagina del manga.
No se por que estos mocosos, si, son mocosos XD.. creen que cuando uno hace un comic o mucho fanart de alguna sola cosa, creen que ya es la obligación del artista darles lo que quieren. Si el artista se ausenta, lo asedian y le dicen lo decepcionados que están de que no les de una razón, una "esperanza". Si cobran por su trabajo lo ven como un insulto.
¡Gosh! ¡¡Consiganse una vida!!

Like look at it. It’s on printer paper and has eraser marks everywhere and it’s just awful. They copied this from their phone during recess.OMG TRACE4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Yeah okay tracing’s bad, teach them now, they gotta learn at some point, etc etc etc. But let them take that hit from their own upset following, when and IF they ever make it to that point. Let them learn when they let down the people who support them. Most won’t ever get to that point anyway.
Because attacking these dumb kids with your legions or making a huge event out of it just makes you an asshole. A public spectacle asshole that beats up slow kids and thinks WAY too highly of its work.

Simple Life Drawing tipHey all,Simple Life Drawing tip5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Through helping students at CDA, one thing that I see a lot of is the tendency to just draw when the model poses.
To be honest you will get less done drawing this way. It's also important to learn how to sharpen your pencil properly.
When the model poses, take about 30 seconds and observe. If you've been practicing your mental manikin then this will
be easier. Starting with what is the model doing? Which way is the head oriented? Which shoulders is higher? Where
is the pinch and stretch side? Etc...
Doing this gives you a battle plan, even before you make a mark on your drawing pad. You'll be surprised at how much more
you edit your marks when you start putting down lines. Remember that even before you get likeness, lighting, form, etc.
your base lay in should be clear. Meaning that anyone who looks at it should be able to tell what's going on.
There will be examples of this soon and also in the BAD drawing notes book

You can still sign up for characters, but the due date for any character is February 6th, even if you sign up a week before that day.
Also, since we only have one month left, people who've reached their max amount of charcters can do a few more if they wish. Let's say... three more if they so choose.
For this collab, we will be drawing all the Disney girls we can!
