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

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

News about wolves :(Hello pals,News about wolves :(2 years ago in Personal More Like This
sorry for kiriban winner, you will be featured soon, I did not forget you I just write some sad journals and my mood is far from nice, so this is not the best time for kiriban.
By the way, there is a new one: send me a printscreen of 1 022 222 pageviews and you will win a feature (no feature for porn or animal cruelty, ok).
Well, I have news about wolves, as I have promised to keep you informed.
If you do not know what I speak about, check this journal, please!
Two ZOO Brno's employees answered my question about wolves and one of them was a zoologist, so I think we can consider that reply trustworthy.
So: as you probably already know, my beloved Atila, famous alpha wolf from ZOO Brno, died. He died of old age (10 years). His death is the cause of the current bad state of other wolves. The death of the alpha is followed with a lot of stress, as the hierarchy of the pack is completely crushed and in terrible mess.

About Lester (or: The WTF Les Advice Meme)Long time no entry! Awful, because theoretically, there are so many themes and topics that i prepared (for such a long time!) and that i want to talk about but as always - time is and always was quite the luxury.About Lester (or: The WTF Les Advice Meme)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Aynway, i'm tired of seeing the last journal entry, so it was time for something new.
We all (or the internet generation at least) know those advice memes. And even if you had never heard of them, you will most likely recognise them if you see one.
Long story short: I had fun in making some with (or rather, about) Lester, one of my best known canon characters. The idea behind it? A (humoristic) character study actually, derp. D8
Because if you can make fun of your character like this, debunking all his quirks, deficits and flaws, you will see how believable and real he actually is - or not. For example, are you unsure if you have created a Mary Sue? Try this, that'll show.

Should You Become a Professional Artist?Community WeekShould You Become a Professional Artist?8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Do you enjoy art passionately and are considering doing it as your job, but have some worries such as;
Will I enjoy it as much as a job?
Will it be hard getting a job?
Will I become a starving artist?
If you're like me, you're asking yourself those questions and are letting them give you a hard time deciding whether or not to pursue art professionally. My health teacher told me, as we digressed from our topic of smoking, that to know whether or not you want to do a job, you have to hear what it's like from someone who's already doing it. That's why I decided to do an interview with professional artists on dA to give me, and hopefully many others, answers to these burning questions and an idea of what it's like to be a professional artist.
Okay, well let's get to it then

If you're not familiar with this word:
pro-cras-ti-na-tion |prəˌkrastəˈnāSHən, prō-|
"the action of delaying or postponing something."
Why am I talking about this?
Well, a year ago I used to be a professional procrastinator. I've imposed the 365 Days of Doodles challenge to myself for this particular reason.
While procrastination is to some degree a natural phenomenon and can’t be completely eradicated, you can use the following strategies to get in the habit of getting drawings done.
Mind that these are not golden rules or such, just strategies that work fo
What is Originality to you?I was thinking the other day about creating original art. They say there is no such thing as originality, that every idea has been done, so I'm wondering what your definition of originality is? I probably look at 100-300 pieces of art every day on my DA, tumblr, artstation, draw crowd, conceptart, and I would say only about once a month I come across a piece of art that is something I've never seen before, or at least a subject matter that I've never seen presented in that way.What is Originality to you?1 month ago in Personal More Like This
To me, it's a combination of things. The most important element that catches my attention is when a picture tells a story, or makes me wonder if there's a story behind it. I don't mean comic books or anything, but sometimes I'll come across a piece of art and say wow, I'd really love to know more about what's happening here! One of my all time favorite artists is Yoshitaka Amano, because (and I know he does concept work for games) for stand alone images he always captivate me in a way that I want to know the sto
