Experiment Part 1: Training Your EyeSo my buddy karuvan is trying to learn how to draw properly. He's been on a roll as far as progressing. But he's stuck at a standstill. This is an experiment that I've done with him and that he's working on in order to train his eye. I decided to share the conversation and experiment with you guys for you all to apply to your study habits and advancement in drawing and art.Experiment Part 1: Training Your Eye2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Karuvan: I randomly drew over my old pic. Ain't gonna do it over, was just curious on how much I could have done better.
Robaato: Quick question... like... who's work at this point do you really want yours to be close to? I'm tryna gauge what level you're trying to achieve.
K: lol... Joel is becoming a huge influence.
R: Ok. I have a test for you.
R: I want you to replicate this picture exactly as it is to the best of your ability:
Site Update: Activity WidgetSite Update: Activity Widget3 months ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
In our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.
We received a lot of feedback that deviants preferred to use #1, #2, etc. to form lists, and that the automatic conversion to tags was distracting. In response to this feedback, we've updated the system so that using # before a number will no longer create a link to a tag page. Changed by kemayo
Double-clicking the "Post Status" button when creating a Status Update would cause the update to be posted twice. Fixed by inazar
If a deviant posted one Status Update and then returned to the box to post a second Status Update without reloading

Pokemon X/Y Save Glitch WarningFirst off let me say that I apologize for all the updates on this journal.Pokemon X/Y Save Glitch Warning1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I just want people to be calm and informed~ c:
LAST/FINAL EDIT: Well I won't have to update this anymore! Nintendo has officially stated that they are aware of the problem and as working on a fix. More information can be found in my update about this issue here:
Hopefully I helped to calm some people down and inform them as much as I could about this nasty glitch~ c:
Good luck and have fun with your games!
EDIT: Looking around some more...it seems that the glitch MIGHT in fact be an issue with certain region copies of the game. To my knowledge no glitch reports have come from the NA releases of the games and that the problems are coming from those with the EU and JPN versions.
I'll look into it more later~ c:
IMPORTANT EDIT: Okay so it has pretty much been confirmed that the glitch is NOT game breaking nor "destroys" your save file.
Fascists attack!Last night the MPAA took down Megaupload and several staff members were arrested, on the grounds of copyright infringement.Fascists attack!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In response to this, Anonymous launched their biggest attack ever against organizations like the MPAA, RIAA etc and took down their websites.
Since the SOPA protest was received extremely well, it'll be exciting to see what other political moves the internet can make in future.
The fascists won't be able to beat down protesters on the internet like they did with Occupy Wall Street.

Joan of Arc
Joan of Arc (1412—1431) is the ultimate iconic rebellious teenager. In nineteen years she lived a fuller and more exciting life, effecting the future histories of the two most powerful nations on Earth, than most can even dream of, and then died a martyr’s death for her cause and beliefs, for which she was declared a saint 500 years later. Her story has been told in many novels, movies and comic books. She was the girl who God gave a mission to drive the occupying English out of northern France. So fervid was her demand for action that she was made an advisor to the French high command and led them to victory after victory in the cause of F

Draw With Us #7 - SkinHey guys,Draw With Us #7 - Skin1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm sorry to have disappeared for so long! I had terrible internet for a long time (which makes it impossible to search resources) and then my personal life has been a massive distraction. I have managed to take the time to write a journal for this month at least and the topic is Skin
To start with, skin colour is one of the hardest things for me to pin point on a palette. I always go too pink! So I find these swatches incredibly useful
These are tutorials are on understanding skin tone and how to use those colours

My DD GuidelinesAs most of you probably know by now, I'm one of the Literature CVs responsible for featuring literature DDs a few times a week. Exciting? I think so! Of course, there are a couple of things you should know about suggesting DDs to me before you do, just to keep everything running smooth and give that piece you want to see featured the best chance it's got at being picked.My DD Guidelines1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
Why Should You Suggest DDs?
Because it feels good to spread community spirit! No, really, it does. But honestly, sharing art you appreciate with others for a chance to be featured and loved is fantastic. It shows that you appreciate their work and are interested in promoting community spirit, as well. And, hey, who doesn't love to do that? Also, you never know! Good karma could come your way. After all, you the community are who help us scout DDs, so it's up to you to help us find spectacular literature and bring it out of the shadows!

Hey, guys. Sorry I haven't been updating this journal for two days now, but so much is happening at the same time I needed one to breathe a little and put my brain on the lap for some time and the other to take a step out and look at everything as an outsider, trying not to involve myself too much in order to understand better how things are working. The result was: I'm very concerned about the future of my country
Our protests are falling apart, everywhere. Be it people from the government infiltrated or just random citizens who didn't care much as to research about politics before going to the streets, things are just very messy right now. I see preople shouting stupid things like our president should decrease the bus taxes when that's not her responsability at all (the governators are the ones taking care of it).

And since tumblr has a following size that's a third of my dA, a lot of people may be missing my WIP shots. So I hope it won't bother anyone that I make and update journals that show my process. I hope you'll find them interesting and inspiring. And also, I hope people will stop asking me what program I work in lol on top of the fact that it's listed in my interests under Tools of the Trade, I've also had a FAQ made so please check those before asking questions.
