Big Ben ResponseA succinct summary of the recent complaints:Big Ben Response2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"You somehow magically gained the ability to draw near-photorealistic buildings overnight and you choose to use this amazing newfound skill to draw a building in the background? Get serious dude."
This is a redrawing of Big Ben (using a different reference photo BTW) to show that I am actually capable of drawing architecture just fine. I only used the computer for the poster version because I wanted more control over it.
I'm gonna be leaving Big Ben the way it is in the poster. There's nothing to "own up to" about it other than saying "sorry I used such a recognizable image source of a popular and well known landmark as reference." I did not trace.
Curious that so many of the people crying "copyright infringement" over me using reference are also the same people who take my comics and make "parodies" of them by cutting, rearranging, and re-uploading th
Big BenSo in case you haven't heard yet, some kind YouTuber found the reference image I used to draw Big Ben for my London poster, warped and skewed it to match the angle, and made a rather catchy song proclaiming how I traced it while the image flickers back and fourth between the photo and my drawing as "proof."Big Ben2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know I have haters out there, and some of them seem to have unhealthy obsessions with finding fault in everything I do, but this is taking it pretty far, don't you think? Even if it were traced, Big Ben is such an iconic image that you'd be hard pressed to find a different angle to work with, especially since it's box-shaped and all sides look the same.
I should probably point out that if you see pixelation in the tower, it's because the whole image has been reduced and saved at only 60% normal JPEG compression. It's a trick used to keep the image good enough to be seen but bad enough to be printed, thus encouraging sales on the larger non pixelated poster.

The Harvest Goddess is a B****I've been playing through Harvest Moon: A Tale of Two Towns and it quickly became apparent that the Harvest Goddess needs some sort of medication to keep her emotions in check.The Harvest Goddess is a B****3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Shortly after starting the game I got the cut scene explaining the situation: There exists a place with two towns separated by a mountain connected by a tunnel that goes through said mountain. One day two travelers bumped into each other in the tunnel and raised their voices slightly. The Harvest Goddess promptly stepped in, chastised them for being inconsiderate enough to accidentally bump into each other, then proceeded to bring the whole tunnel down effectively dividing the two towns just to teach them a lesson (stop me if this sounds like Omashu's origin from The Last Airbender).
Having separated the two towns over an insignificantly stupid quarrel, the Harvest Goddess then gets really depressed and decides she can't be bothered to remove the roadblock she put there herself, whereby she turns t

Art Theft and Stuff..I'm writing this because I've had a sudden surge of people telling me on my profile and a lot through private Notes that they're finding my work all over the interwebz (and thank you very much! I really appreciate your efforts to inform me!) . I think I expect that, as it's an unfortunate reality of posting online, but in light of the vastness of the internet, I believe in picking my battles when it comes to this stuff.Art Theft and Stuff..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For example, a few people have directed me to small roleplaying Sites that are obviously made by a handful of people. They used my artwork just on profiles to represent the characters ( mainly FF7 based). I feel this kind of use is ok with me. They aren't claiming it, they don't remove my watermarks, they aren't making money off it. They just have a small online RP community and are having fun. I like people to enjoy my work like that and if it contributes, that's kind of nice . ( yes! Art can
Revamp Information and our Apologies.⚜ In the Process of Re-vamping • • •Revamp Information and our Apologies.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We apologize for the sudden and abrupt change of PGA's typical normal day. Unfortunately Kikkun has retired from being our founder. The reason behind her leaving is the fact she simply felt that dealing with PGA was more of a chore than any fun for her. There is no one to fault for this and she was a great founder and we will all miss her so. Pangoro-hime is our new founder and as such she decided she wanted to re-vamp PGA in an effort to keep the group from dying.
Please bear with us as we arrange the school for better preparation for you and in hopes for more fun. We've got a few surprises ahead for you guys so don't give up on us now. We're going to make PGA come back with a bang!
New York Comic Con*drum roll and a little dance*New York Comic Con2 years ago in Personal More Like This
....I'm going State side!
Yes indeed, I have a place in the Artists Alley at New York Comic Con! They hand select the artist and I couldn't believe when my application was accepted! I will be there for all 4 days starting this Thursday. I'm so excited, I've been so busy lately it hasn't had a chance to sink in. It'll be my first time ever going over to the States, I have a couple of days after the convention to myself, so I'll get to explore New York a bit at least. Can anyone recommend things I should do/see there? Especially on the look out for lesser known excitements. It's the furthest I've traveled for a convention, and with outgoings so high I'm really not in this one for the money Apparently half my dA visitors come from the US, and it's been my dream for a long time to go out and meet some of you! I'll do a journal cataloging all the funz when I'm back so you all can enjoy
So who's going to be there? *crosses fingers*

Sins of an ArtistI've been under fire recently for having the audacity to admit publicly that improving my art has never been, and never was, an ultimate goal of mine. Apparently that's like committing some sort of mortal sin in the art community. I've had trouble expressing myself about it too, because brushing off improvement for improvement sake makes me look like I'm uncaring, egocentric, and stubborn. But after a recent post I was given much more clarity in understanding the issue and I wanted to share my thoughts with you.Sins of an Artist2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the recent exchange I was basically told this: "If doing what you love isn't about dedicating your life to improving your art, you aren't an artist."
Maybe I'm old fashioned, but making art has never been solely about the technical expertise. Even in college, outside the handful of foundation courses you take in freshman year, perfection of the craft is often secondary to concepts and ideas and your ability to evoke feelings and emotions in your audience.

and those two words really don't seem enough to express my gratitude.
I've just spent the last week going back though my DA messages, replying to notes, comments, checking out peoples art. (and I've still got a few more to do XD) That little thing called life got in the way of me keeping on top of my incoming DA messages, and so I had a few good months worth to read through again. Hundreds I replied to, thousands I read through; every single one, and I appreciate each. Many people just like to leave one word, others pour out their heart. I am infinitely amazed at how many people show their kindness towards my art.
I also made a collection of the art people have said I helped inspire them to make: http://destinyblue.deviantart.com/favourites/51860413 how crazy cool is that... to feel you've inspired people...
