Vermouth talks (2): IMPORTANT NEWS!!Vermouth talks (2): IMPORTANT NEWS!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello everyone! This is Vermouth, and I'm proud to announce that "Like This" will become a serious webcomic.
Ok, but what do you mean?
"Like This" is a fan comic, so there are character not under our copyright, also the name "Laurelinad" is not an original name, infact I took it from an old game named Sacred. Don't hate me for that XD That guy was my very first love, I grew fond of him and since then, every male character that I create (in RPG, MMORPG, ecc.) is often named Laurelinad (laughs).
So, Laurelinad will change name?
Yes but it won't be that traumatic. Out of curiosity, I wanted to do the etymology of the name Laurelinad (since it's built with Tolkenian elvish language), and I discovered that Laur- comes from "gold" and Linad comes from "so
How tentaculas are madePeople keep asking about Love and Tentacles, but I'm sorry to say that comic is as good as dead. I might draw a picture once in a while because Frida can be fun to draw, but I don't even think about LaT most of the time, unlike my other comics which enter my head daily.How tentaculas are made3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But people are apparently dying to know if Tom and Frida ever had kids, and if it could even be done. So I'll give you and explanation on that.
Tentaculas have reproductive tentacles around their waist (the thin pink ones that gets thick when they get aroused). Males and females rub them against each other and release semen and eggs into water (in these modern times its usually a bathtub unless they're hippies). They are left to float around until the fertilized eggs hatch and the tiny young eats the un-fertilized eggs. Then they move on to swallowing each other, until only one is left. Sounds unpleasant, but that is why tentaculas in general are very healthy and handicaps are almost unheard of unless they get inj
How to get better at ArtTake your timeHow to get better at Art11 months ago in Personal More Like This
That's all I really wanted to say. I could launch myself into a book-long explanation of all the things to do to get better, of what to read and what to watch and what to look for, all the "how to's" and "do this"...but in the end there is one thing I've noticed that seems to get overlooked: people aren't taking their time. Slow down!
I can't tell you how often I've seen newer artists ask for a critique on something they did 'really quick'.
The worst thing I've seen newer artists do is ask for a critique on something they've done from imagination....
If you remember anything on your journey's to improving your art and finding yourself in art, it would be this:
1. Take your time. You cannot learn anything quickly. Just assume no one can. I can't. The artists I admire didn't. The masters didn't.
a. Don't skip steps. Take your time to learn how something looks before trying to do it from your head. Always

My photography course at HogwartsUuuugh you guys, my sleep has been so terrible. I woke up out of a pretty entertaining dream, though.My photography course at Hogwarts3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was taking a photography class at Hogwarts and Snape was our teacher. I think Ron and Harry might also have been in our class but I never did see them. Our assignment at the time was to get ten outstanding photographs of animals in their natural habitat and he told us we had to roll up our pant-legs and go wading in a swamp full of alligators and poisonous snakes if we hoped to get any good ones. He meant this literally. This was our assignment. (Oh, Snape! )
So I actually did it; I took off my shoes and wandered into the bog, dodging snakes and snapping away. I took so long about it that I missed the start of critique and I sort of ran into Snape with some of my classmates on a bridge while I was headed back to the castle. He was reviewing their photos (and grading ruthlessly, as he does). He saw me and said, "What are you doing? You knew we had critique."
I answered, "Yeah, I kn

If you are considering going into the industry....If you are an artist or want to be one, especially if you want to get into the VFX industry, you should watch this:If you are considering going into the industry....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It touches on a few things I feel are important to understand as an artist and even as consumers of art:
1.) Art is not an exact science. It can be difficult to put a price tag on it, let alone the often very complicated processes of making it.
2.) Computers are tools that facilitate our work but they DO NOT do the work for us.
3.) Don't get into this industry for the money. If you go into this line of work, you do it because you love it. If someone happens to get lucky or has a really great idea and he/she hits it big, GREAT! Good for him/her. But don't go in expecting that to happen to you. Chances are it won't. If you are lucky, you will find a nice middleclass job you can support yourself and your family on for a while...... until....
4.) Unfortunately, a lot of employers see artists as disposable. When they no longer need you, they will kick you to the curb an

History Repeats ItselfLast week a Connecticut action group going by the name of SouthingtonSOS held a video game burning event where local citizens were encouraged to bring various forms of violent media to be burned in a dumpster, no doubt a reaction to the recent Connecticut shooting.History Repeats Itself3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I wish I could say I am surprised about this, but sadly the whole media frenzy surrounding violence in video games and movies reminds me of something that already happened once and profoundly affected the media it was accusing: Comic books.
During the early days of comic books, things occasionally got a little risqué. EC Horror comics in particular delighted in rendering extremely gruesome images and disturbing themes in their comics, which were being sold to children unbeknownst to their parents (because naive parents at the time had no reason to suspect comics might contain "inappropriate" material). However all that changed in 1954.
German-American psychiatrist Fredric Wertham was upset about how disturbing some of those

Are you good at portraying people? Are you a fan of vampires? Do you like wolves or werewolves? Do you have a penchant for dragons and you like to draw? If you answered yes to at least one of these questions, you're in the contest for you!
Welcome to my first REAL contest on deviantart. (There was another, smaller, but that does not count ...).
This is a kind of statistical contest ... to the character that will be many times designed and therefore appreciated among my OC, surely will be granted to survive the final battle of the Way of Legends (or any battle).

Critiquing Critiquing StoryStory: Turns out you're doing it wrong.Critiquing Critiquing Story1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Everyone is- and what's more, anyone who tries to make a foray into storytelling without having mastery over their efforts merits endless scorn.
I've had the privilege of sharing advice with some other creators of late, and seen some of the (usually anonymous) criticism being leveled at their work. It's noteworthy for being intense, superficially sophisticated, and misguided.
Now, there are two kinds of creators out there. Those who don't give a fig for what other people think, and dismiss all criticism out of hand.
...Those creators tend not to improve.
Then there are those who care about the quality of their work, take pains to make it enjoyable for others, and are receptive to feedback.
These individuals have the most potential as writers, and are also most vulnerable to their efforts being permanently deformed by vindictive critique.
They'll be assured their characters are flat cutout

I came to that conclusion after I read a certain blog on Tumblr called "Artist Problems". On this blog people submit their thoughts and artistic problems they encounter as artists. When I saw one of those quotes saying: 'Artist Problem #204 - When you're sketching and people start watching over your shoulder', I thought that it's pretty good and it applies to myself. So I clicked 'Follow' button as I wanted to be enlighted by witty quotes and socialize with other artists in pain.
After that the great dissapointment struck my head.
Because out of tons pictures with 'Artistic Problems' written down I browsed on that blog almost NOTHING applied to me.
At first I thought ' What a bunch of lousy losers, how can they call it a problem?' But then I saw a lots of comments under every single picture 'OMG IT'S SO TOTALLY ME', 'YES, THIS BRINGS ME SO MUCH PAIN' and then
