letter written by Steve Anderson, director at Walt Disney Animation Studios
"Artists are emotional creatures. We feel things deeply. We see the world around us, react to it and base our work off of those reactions. Our work represents ourselves. It’s us. Not just what our bodies can produce but what our minds and hearts have to say.
We want people to like what we do. If we didn’t, we’d just draw, paint, sculpt, dance, act and write in our own living room with no documentation or recording of it. But we don’t do that because we want our work to be seen. We want to express ourselves to people and, in turn, produce a reaction in them. Our emotions create the art and our art creates emotions.
But there are days when our emotions get the best of us. They let us down. They d

Artist Block and New YearsWell actually it's not much of an artist block as a lack of motivation. Like, I know I've got gift and adoptables to do but I'm just not feeling it.Artist Block and New Years1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I always make excuses not to do stuff and it's sooooo frustrating to me and those who are waiting I'm sure.
I haven't been eating as healthy as I usually do and not exercising due to slight depression and anxiety. Tomorrow is looking promising though. Hopefully, this year I will be able to get it together and stuff

So let me start to say if you have gotten a message from someone named MRCAT22 clamming to be my friend please ignore/block them. we are not friends , I do not know this person. in fact this person just RECENTLY started PMing me on tumblr under the name Maryrosecat. Mary (if that is her real name) first pmed me asking me about making webcomics (? ) already i was on my toes from the start... her messaging went from simple questions to personal ones, and later on the day hannah :iconartlover4life: messages me and tells me this girl has been harassing her and l:iconlalasosu2: a few days prior.
Mrcat22/maryrose is not only harassing but was and admitted to art theft. If you read :iconletthemhang: she has stolen some characters literally smashing them all into one but leaving very obvious traits, she even went as far as to steal my character. when confronted (by me) she told me that Hannah and kayla all of a sudden "threw the cha

You need to stop drawing anime.Not written by me, but entirely true:You need to stop drawing anime.5 years ago in Personal More Like This
"You need to stop drawing anime.
This isn't something you have a choice in. If you are truly serious about your artistic improvement, you need to stop drawing anime. You can go back to it later once you've learned the basics, but until you have a firm grasp of anatomy, value/light, perspective, color theory, composition, etc. you are not ready to stylize in any capacity. Being an artist is fucking hard, and you cannot cut corners just because you don't want to spend time learning the boring things. Very few people want to actually draw photorealism, but you have to know how. Simplifying forms, in a way, is much, much harder than drawing things as they are.
Realism is not a style, but a foundation upon which all other art forms are based. Every truly successful artist learned to draw from life before he stylized his artwork. Even abstraction is grounded in life (albeit further removed than some other forms); an abstract artist still needs to know ho
Photography Troubleshooting: Capturing AutumnFor many Photographers, Autumn is now officially here and is one of the most exciting seasons to capture in terms of colour, change and vistas. Early morning mist, late afternoon sun, orange, red and golden hues - Autumn has a lot to offer in many countries. If you're like me, Autumn often arrives all at once and it can be tricky to know how to make the best of the season before it's over. A couple of days of high winds and rain can ruin the best Autumnal captures by ripping the leaves down before you've even got the chance to snap - so it's great to be prepared for the season.Photography Troubleshooting: Capturing Autumn3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Leading lines are particularly useful. Yet so many people quote ' Look for leading lines...' or 'You've captured the leading lines here perfectly' and really do we even know properly what they are? The purpose of a leading line is to draw a viewers eye into the photograph and then on a journey - through it. Think of it as a visual narrative. They can be intentional and ind

I've been busily putting together some videos after getting some advice from you all, and I'm slowly learning~
Today I uploaded a new one, but since it's in english and also talks about a question I get asked here a lot, I thought I'd share it with you.
I apologise for the slightly off audio, I swear it was all fine in my editing software. ; _ ; Originally it was also filmed in HD, but that didn't quite work out either...oh well.
(Still learning. Maybe next time)
Anyhow, enjoy! Hope it's useful info for some of you. :>

art theft, copyright garbage, idfk lolart theft, copyright garbage, idfk lol1 year ago in Personal More Like This
(trigger warning. that's all i can give you since there's no blacklist system built into dA, so just a heads up.)
I just wanted to say that being on deviantart has taught me that the artist community cares a whole lot more about copyright laws than they do, say: rape, hate speech, the well-being of children, uh, being a good person, etc. and it's bothersome to me to see these ever-present delusions within the community. I've been on this site for a little while (Since 2006) and I've seen the same thing going on for years. Where this gross sense of entitlement comes from, I don't really know. I'm guessing it's just something that continuously feeds unto itself. There are few things that deviantart users care more passionately about than art theft.
Example. I recently had someone tell me that they were leaving dA for furaffinity because of the whole Realitysquared tracing debacle (which was the dumbest shit I've ever
