Why I Cannot Stand Axis Powers HetaliaEDIT 5/11/2014: Guys. GUYS. STAAAHHHP. This journal is fucking FIVE YEARS OLD, and that's about how old all of you are acting. I would say sorry for ~ruining your life~ by venting about your favorite sparkly animoo, but I'm not. And if your whole identity is really tied up in a fucking fandom, you have serious issues. Seek help. Disabling comments when I can, because whether you're trying to prove some stupid point to me, defend me, or logic this out with me, you're all equally retarded. Go home, boys and girls, show's over!Why I Cannot Stand Axis Powers Hetalia6 years ago in Personal More Like This
So a few friends have been asking me lately what I've got against this inexplicably popular series that seems to have popped up recently called Axis Powers Hetalia. They love it... and I HATE it. Hate it hate it hate it!!! But the mere fact that it fills me with boiling rage everytime I think about it is not a good enough reason for them, so I guess I'll try to piece together why it pisses me off so very much. -I'm- not even entirely sure why I d

How to determine what you should charge for your work
In light of the absolutely horrendous commission page DA started up which encourages artists to sell their work for literally pennies, let me talk about pricing artwork. Or more specifically, how I price my work.
This...guide? Advice? Thing? Highlights what I've learned about pricing throughout the last few years. I do not touch on the subject of beginner pricing, simply because there are no set guidelines for that and beginner pricing usually ends up being extremely subjective. This guide assumes that the reader is somewhat experienced in their craft and is looking for pointers on pricing. However I still highly encourage beginners to read! This is what pricing should be like, not mere pennies for hours upon hours of work. This also focuses on crafts and sewing but a lot of it is s

So I stumbled upon this quote quite a while back and it’s been one of the ones that has kept me pushing through even through the toughest times, so I thought I’d share it with you guys to keep you all motivated as well. If you want something to happen in life, you’ve got to make sacrifices, there’s really hardly a way around it. You may need to go to extremes, and if you are willing to, there will be so many rewards to reap at the end, you just have to keep pushing. Doesn’t matter what anyone thinks - whether it’s your family, friends, boyfriend/girlfriend, etc. - you must do it for you. This is in no way shape or form a selfish thing to do. If anything, anyone who is wanting to stand in the way of you and your dreams is the selfish one.
I’ve gone through many ups and downs throughout my artistic progress, as I’ve mentioned before, and I’m sure anyone who is passionate about their dreams could re

I finished the model, some of the rigging stuff and some basic materials.
I tried to stay sort of close to the official model (like always) but I made some slight changes here and there. (like always )
-The shoulder pads are bigger and have a more defined, sharper form
-The eyeball is very reflective, unlike the pitch black one in official renders
-The thighs and upper arms have a slightly different shape
-The armor on shins and lower arms are sharper with more distinct edges
-Small additional air vents on the back (not visible here)
Instead of a regular metal material I went for a car paint look for the blue and the red materials. I think it looks better, what do you think?

Oblivion FeatureOblivion Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion is one of my favourite games of all time, surpassed only by Morrowind, and I've been planning for a long time to put together a feature with original artwork. Unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since almost all Oblivion-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
Oblivion is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2006. The central plot revolves around the efforts to thwart the fanatical cult Mythic Dawn that plans to open the gates to the demonic realm of Oblivion. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are quest lines for several guilds, and many side missions. Despite being less diversified and immersive than Morrowind, the incredible amount of quality third-party add-ons add a lot of scope and replay value to the game.

So as it turned out someone wrote the following message to me:
nah, i gave up on it ages ago... its not only hard but also frustrating and depressing... approx. 1 month for 1 min motion duration = got burned-out before i'd even finish it... so i raise up my hands in the air and just retire... don't have any spare time to make it. still have life and work to do after all... ahahaha...
Now this is not the first time I've seen something like this written and so I felt it would be a nice idea to write down the method that I use to do my animation work.
First off, to save you alot of time, this is not a tutorial on computer animation. There are plenty of excellent tutorials around on this topic all over the Internet. Rather this article gives you a method; specifically mine; on how to approach the process of producing animation. So if you're looking for a "How to" guide, this is not it.

"I'm going to try to disipate some doubts about CSW, I know you have been waiting a long time so I'll try to answer the most common questions:
First and most important is that the project has not been cancelled. We started to work professionaly and we have been expending a lot of time
without developing fully CSW to improve ourselves in other areas and taking a break doing different kind of things.
The truth is that we still have a lot of things about CSW that we haven't showed yet and some day will be shown;
my advice is that you just keep going on with your lives and someday you will find some update, but for the moment there isn't none.
Nothing of this can be published on the main site because we lost access to it a long time ago, we talked about that time ago. Also we can't release a first version
and then update it with downloable characters because the core of the game is not done, you might think it is by the videos, but it's
