Black Friday advice and tips.If you’re going out tonight or tomorrow for Black Friday DON’T forget to say ‘Thank you’ to the people who are working/serving you! & Some tips!Black Friday advice and tips.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It’ll be crowded, stuffy, and you may wind up being disappointed about something, perhaps even angry, but remember that the people who are serving you are just doing their job.
Be kind to them and understand they are not miracle workers, they cannot part the Red sea to find you an item that their store is out of, so don’t yell at them about it.
TIP: Usually they will offer to search for the item you want in another store of their company, take up the offer and if you really want that item be willing to go get it where they find it.
They can’t disobey the rules laid out for them as company policy just to make you happy, so don’t try to guild trip them into doing it. They could and will get fired, and losing your job during the holidays is no fun.
They aren't your personal p

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 Itself2 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

reaching out to me as I keep drowning
In this heart, an empty canvas
I will blacken it with tears
Illusions that seem to never end
Falling through like an hourglass
Shrouded by all these mysteries
Warmth that feels so familiar
Heartless words that escape my lips
Laughter threatens to eat my soul
Fearing taking a step ahead
What awaits me no is a future of gray
Praying to see an answer
Amongst these broken lies
If my words were to reach you
what would you say?
Scattering the light broken in pieces
Shattering the darkness from within
I can hear a voice as it grows distant
pulling me back into life...
If I were to lose all that surrounds me
If I were to find only a void
I would give up all my senses
Just to fall into your arms
Illusions that seem to never end
Hidden under a vacant smile
Fearing words that were never said
Echoing in endless layers of gray...
Failing to find an answer
I hold my breath again
Desperate to break away
Tired of the Video Game IndustryWith the PS4 on the way, the gaming industry is alive once again reminding us how dull and boring and... wrong... it is. Here's a quick summary of some of the things I'm sick to death of hearing about when it comes to video games.Tired of the Video Game Industry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Polygones = Emotion
I'm sure you've all seen the jokes, but this one stems from David Cage, who gushed over the tech demo of an old man's face for the PS4, remarking about how the only way to get "true" emotion is by bridging the uncanny valley with high resolution models, hi-def textures, and realistic shaders. "True emotion" of course can't be found in books, TV, or cartoons because none of those things can depict the exquisite details of a wrinkled face in true HD glory. I'm sorry to say this, David Cage, but if I can get an emotional response out of 16-bit pixel sprites from Chrono Trigger, or a pictureless book... your logic is faulty.
I'm really getting tired of everything wanting to connect to everything else. I know
James Hunter's Intro SequenceJames's Intro Sequence (in sketch lines!) is available for your viewing over on my Youtube account, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IED8ZOGzpXc&feature=youtu.beJames Hunter's Intro Sequence2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's sound-effect-less, music-less, and not cleaned up at all, but I will be uploading each scene as I complete them so that the voice actors can see how their work is coming together. Perhaps it's also interesting for people interested in some of the processes of animation, as well.
The manic mania when you're Arting.Whenever you create something you go through various stages before it is finished (if you want to finish it that is, not all artwork is meant to be finished.) I've noticed that these creative stages that you go through in that small time period of just one artwork is a manic type of emotional storm.The manic mania when you're Arting.2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Funny enough, being artists also means you're probably a more sensitive person than most.
This following stage story is based on my own experience. Yours might be completely the same or perhaps you encounter different emotions thought he development stages. They are sort of placed in order, but you usually don't experience all of them in one artwork. (or do you?)
01 The brewing stage.
You got this idea in your head of the thing you want to make. It is not a completely clear vision, but you slowly get worked up and cannot wait to get started working on it. Sometimes if it takes to long for you to get started (procrastina
PS4I was wrong and Sony pulled a Nintendo to announce the PS4 way earlier than I anticipated. Of course they will have more details at E3, and they didn't reveal too much about the system, but the fact that they announced it this early was definitely a surprise to me.PS42 years ago in Personal More Like This
They revealed a number of interesting features about the system which, I must admit, are pretty damn amazing. I love the concept of being able to stream your PS4 games on your VITA from anywhere. That's a system selling concept right there, and it kinda beats Nintendo at the whole "play away from the TV with the Wii U pad" idea. (psst! Nintendo! Make an app for the 3DS that streams Wii U games to the console! hurry!)
I also really like the idea of being able to record your gameplay and stream it to people while you're still playing it. I can see that becoming a really big thing for gamers, especially on YouTube where "let's plays" are really popular.
The system also won't block used games, like everyone was fearing it might,
Poking FunPokéFunPoking Fun2 years ago in Personal More Like This
People seem to love to jump to conclusions. If there's one thing I want people who visit my page or read my comics to understand, it's this: If I poke fun at something, that does not automatically mean that I HATE it.
I'm restating that now because it came up again recently in the "Nintentroll" comic. People seemed to think that because the comic is making fun of certain pokemon that means I am decrying the whole series or somehow personally insulting those who actually do enjoy the specific examples I used. Let me reassure you, I am not.
I guess I just want people to lighten up and not always be in such a defensive mode all the time. Everyone has different likes and dislikes and if I don't like something or happen to poke fun at something you do, that does not mean I am personally attacking you and there's no reason to be so knee-jerk defensive about it. This goes for everything I do beyond the "Nintentroll" comic as well. If I poke fun at a movie, or video game, or spe
FlatteredI should be flattered.Flattered2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are people who literally spend hours of their life every day following me. People who obsessively save every work of art I post online. People who comment and hypothesize about everything I do, even when I am not doing anything. People who make their own comics, websites, and blogs because of me. People who meticulously sift through my stats, my comments, and near-decade old journals. People who obsessively screen-capture everything I say or do anywhere online. People who seemingly have no life other than to talk about every aspect of my own. People who, day in and day out, never tire of talking about me to their friends online.
These people are amazing and I am continually astounded by them and the things they come up with... over a worthless and unimportant cartoonist.
Not even a good cartoonist either. Just an average, slightly stubborn, mediocrely popular on a dubious website... cartoonist. Not a politician with real influence in the world. Not a famous
Why can't they be taken seriously?< RANT >Why can't they be taken seriously?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have been a fan of comic books for years and two of my favorite characters, one Marvel and one DC, are always getting the short end of the stick.
Power Girl has had 2 series, She Hulk had at least 3, and both were cancelled because they weren't considered popular enough.
I seriously think that the editors had no idea how create the comics for their supposed target audience.
They wrote books for a mainly female audience - FAILED ATTEMPT
Or horny fanboys - FAILED ATTEMPT
Then even tried to make them full-blown dramatic superheroes like their male counterparts - DOUBLE FAIL BECAUSE THEY AREN"T THEM
(Power Girl/Superman, She-Hulk/Hulk if you don't know your comic book characters)
Know what audience really appreciated these ladies?
Comic book fans who were tired of formulaic, predictable, massive world-changing story lines and heroes who have to make gut-wrenching decisions and miraculous saves.
These are people who wanted a fun

Okay, so this isn't exactly a journal entry. But since I can't be bothered to figure out how to post inline images in the commentary section of regular image posts, you're getting this. Deal with it.
In my perpetual state of ultimate lazyness, this image has been bouncing around for a while, and I'm just now getting around to posting it. And I've had a fair number of questions. So, I think I'll take this opportunity to walk you through some of the happy accidents that fill the days of us artists. That's right, Bob Ross may be the only one who owns up to it, but we all have them.
To me, the most important thing in art is making decisions. In fact, you can break my art philosophy into a tidy little three step triad. Observations -> evaluations -> decisions. That's the important stuff. Everything else is just about
