About male anatomy...It's been A TON OF TIMES that I get the same question:About male anatomy...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"How do you draw male anatomy? Could you give me some tips?"
I will be honest: I don't know!! I can tell the way it all started though.
My sister's a doctor, and she bought Sobotta anatomy atlas, drawn by AWESOME doctors and artists. The edition she bought has got two HUGE books full of medical illustrations of bones and muscles, very detailed veins, tendoms, with sections, skinned corpses, etc. I got totally fascinated and I started to study myself but I was not good enough to draw all those things I learnt.
Then, I had one year of anatomy classes at my art studies in the University. My teacher was just BRILLIANT. He really loves human bodies and he gave us the best tips possible (and he likes manga/anime!!). We visited real life corpses so I could understand better how muscle insertions and tendoms worked. Then, the teacher asked us to draw like... 200 works in 9 months. It was CRAZY and I hated him too much. B

I urge you to watch this video.
Jane Elliott once did this experiment. She divided her class of 8 year olds into those that had blue eyes, and those that had brown eyes. The first day, she told the blue-eyed that they were superior to the brown-eyed, gave them special privileges and explained why it was scientifically accurate that people who had blue eyes were smarter, more efficient, beautiful, etc than those who were not. She made the brown-eyed kids wear brown collars and degraded them, chastised them for making petty mistakes, and told them they were ignorant and argumentative when they tried to tell her that they were not. The entire classroom's attitudes took an entire 360. The blue eyed kids did better on tests and became arrogant and bossy, while the brown eyes became timid and submissive to the blue eyes. Even something as simple as getting one question wrong on a test became a testament to how stupid and insignificant the brown eyes were. The next day, she

Klaus : more than just a pretty boySo, I've always gotten a very positive response from readers and watchers whenever Klaus is mentioned, but for those who have not read my book and especially my final draft, I don't feel like you know him well enough. So I've decided to share a few new Klaus scenes that I've written recently to develop his character more.Klaus : more than just a pretty boy3 years ago in Personal More Like This
around Chapter 8 at Edith's dinner party in late June
"Would you care to accompany me to the veranda for a cigarette?" he asked. "There's one on the second floor, and it's getting a bit stuffy in here."
I agreed, and soon we were standing out on the lanai, elbows leaning upon the cool iron, the brisk summer wind rustling the ivy that crawled up the side of the railing. Klaus pulled a pack of cigarettes from his waistcoat pocket along with a lighter. Imprinted in the copper were the letters K&K, and suddenly I wanted to ask him what had happened the other day—what Heinrich had said about choosing the Gypsy over him. I didn't have time to ask though, because K

Wreck-It RalphI'm not putting any major spoilers in here, but this is....easily the best film I've seen all year. Can't remember the last time I saw an animated film that made me feel happy and sad at the same time (in addition to making me laugh). The closest thing I have to a 'critique' for the film would be that I sort of thought Ralph would explore more than just two other games (Hero's Duty and Sugar Rush) in addition to his own, but otherwise it's really difficult for me to think of anything I didn't enjoy about this film.Wreck-It Ralph3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also, just so you know: pop culture references, references everywhere. (and done in a way that was funny and not irritating at all). Plus, at first I wasn't sure if Vanellope was going to be a character that was going to be irritating or not, but she was actually really funny and I actually felt sorry for her at times omg. (Kinda glad for that because I hate it when a bunch of people rave to me about a character in a series or a film and they turn out to be rea
Oh, the memories... XDDude, I just randomly had a very amusing flashback.Oh, the memories... XD2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was about 8 years old, and we had a goose now for some months. My grandma got it from our neighbours, as a sign of friendship or stuff like that. We decided to call it "Auguste", after a children's story and raised it as a pet.
I remembered that day, when my family was having lunch together. It was a sunday.
We all enjoyed my grandmother's exceptionally delicious cooking while sitting in the garden and enjoying the nice weather. Suddenly, my grandma said: "You all sure know that we are eating our Auguste?". Very educational. Yes, my grandma is really...ehm...nice.
My mother looked seriously disturbed, ha ha. Like "Noooeez!"
I'm writing this in my journal because I wanted to share those nostalgic memories with you.

I quit my job.I had to. Being stuck in retail hell for years was getting to me. There's only so many times you can deal with disrespectful self-entitled customers daily, especially when you have personal goals and aspirations that have nothing to do with retail or the success of the business you're working so hard for. (with little acknowledgement.) It's not that I never put my heart into my job -- I even made some great friends there.

You hide behind curtains because the world sneers at you, whenever you take the stage. Strangers and even those closest to you are cold and cruel, hellbent on treating you as if you're nothing. A waste of life. Simply because of who you choose to love.
The truth is: you're far more beautiful than every star in the sky. You're worth more than every jewel put together. Your light is precious, valuable, and when you share it with your significant other, the two of you complete that beautiful, heavenly light.
You are more than wonderful. You deserve to be seen and heard.
You are human. You aren't worthless and unholy.
Love is love. It is as pure as the snow, and warms you like sunlight. Like all other humans, you deserve to love, and be loved. When you find your special someone, your heart sings. And all should be all right, but it isn't.
You aren't alone. You'll never be alone. I'm behind you, and so are many others.

God: Weapon of Mass Destruction? This morning, my family and I watched a sermon from our favorite pastor, Dr. Charles Stanley.God: Weapon of Mass Destruction?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
He normally hits it home with me, delivering messages about God's unwavering love, and how Jesus Christ died on the cross for His children, and eternal compassion. But this morning, we were definitely on two different pages, because all he talked about was death, damnation, and how all of God's unholy children are going to burn in Hell for all eternity. In his sermon, he included gay people and everyone else that doesn't follow the Ten Commandments.
In other words, according to that sermon and a Hell of lot of other people's sermons, absolutely NO ONE's going to Heaven. Except newborn babies, people that live under rocks, and animals. And you know what? At the very end of today's sermon, Dr. Stanley said: 'God, please don't turn away any of your children'. 'Friends, please accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your savior'.
That sermon alone would've turned off a whole TON of people t

Universal background checks will not keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Anyone who says otherwise simply does not understand how the black market operates. Such policy has never worked for drugs. Drug prohibition has cost the tax payers over a trillion dollars. Just because a gun can kill and marijuana can't is not a good argument as a reason to claim drug prohibition and further gun regulations as not being the same thing. Drugs are what fuels the violence in the streets. Universal background checks will not keep the GUNS out of the HANDS of criminals regardless if guns can be used to kill and marijuana can't. Guns being able to kill someone as a reason for the universal background checks is irrelevant, a

You do not need to have read any of my fic to enter this comp, just a knowledge of the Mass Effect trilogy is required. And it's open to all artists and writers.
I am looking for a new OC to either tag along with, or taunt, Shepard and her crew. This character will have the potential to become a big part in future instalments of Resolution http://ezri-krios.deviantart.com/gallery/40873359 and possibly other fics as well.

Believe In YourselfJust some friendly artistic advice from someone who has been drawing for nearly four decades...Believe In Yourself2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Believe it yourself. When you sit down to draw, believe that the outcome will be successful. Failure at drawing comes from not trying hard enough, not working hard enough, and not believing that you can get the job done. Success comes from working hard, learning from past mistakes, and believing that you can and will rises to the occasion. If you are confident that you will do well each time you sit down to draw, you will do better work than the time before. You might not always get things right, or be satisfied with your outcomes, but you will be moving forward as an artist. Repetition. It's not the only way to improve, but it's the only GUARANTEED way to do it. The more you draw, the better you'll get at it. The more you ink, the better you get at it. The more you color, the better you get at it. Never fear your drawing table (Wacom, etc). You aren't going to be dismantling nuc
