Ego vs tirednessThe other day a friend told me that he meet an artist he liked in a con in san diego, and he said to me that he was a real douchebag. I replied to him, does he was all day signing to a lot of people at the both?, did he had pain in his back?, do you catch him running like crazy to the bathroom and you wanted to tell him the story of your life? Did you interrupt him talking to a friend he havent seen in 8 years? When you were talking to him the line was big so he interrupt you to give minutes to the person you didnt see at your back? Did he was sick and taking pills at the booth? Did he receive a call that he wont get paid and got mad? Did a close family member died recently and he just wants to be alone and shows no interest in your talking about Dragon Ball?Ego vs tiredness3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Those are the questions people never make, they just say i talked to him, didnt got the reaction i was expecting, soooooo, he must be a douche.

My Top 20 Least Favorite PokemonSince I'm pretty deep into Pokemon right now and I'd like to give my opinions on some of them, I thought I'd do something a little fun giving both my favorite and least favorite Pokemon, 20 of them (each). I did something like this before, but that had a bunch of filler-entries. Bronzong may be my least favorite steel type, but I don't have any dislike for the bell-thing. So I figured I'd give you my straight up, 20 least favorite Pokemon. And my opinions have changed a bit with me using more of a variety. These are straight up opinions and Pokemon that aren't good at battling, like Tropius or Dunsparce can be saved by their designs. Unfortunately that cuts both ways and some of the Pokemon on this list I hate for appearance alone. I'm also judging the Pokemon based on what they add to the game... you know like how zubat and tentacool adds a shit ton of annoyance (although neither of them are on this list because crobat is awesome and I've got nostalgic attatchment to tentacruel, it beMy Top 20 Least Favorite Pokemon10 months ago in Personal More Like This
IRONYRemember what I said when I updated my last journal announcing that my hiatus was over? I'll remind you in case you forgot:"...IRONY3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think it's safe to say my hiatus is over. I would hate for something unexpected to happen but I am drawing everyday and I can get on the internet again which is nice..."
Well...something did happen. Hurricane Sandy happened lol And luckily, all that happened in my area was a power outage. The winds were pretty ridiculous and they knocked over trees and branches and powerlines so I couldn't get online or anything. I also had a picture to upload for Halloween but now its late...but I'm grateful that these things are the least of my worries...other areas and people have been pretty devastated by the hurricane.
I hope everyone else who was affected by the hurricane is ok. I'll upload any pictures and update my commission journal once I get the chance.
Jumping the bandwagonDo you not just find it hilariously pleasing when you come across angry people complaining about how they dont give a F about rules and will copy peoples stuff/species/ideas/ even if artists asks them not to or whatever other reason they might haveJumping the bandwagon1 year ago in Personal More Like This
then you get curious, go to the complaining artists page for the lulz, then their art, scroll down and it says:
Dont copy, Dont reference, Dont recolor my art/character
Hypocrit is what we call that.
:icontrololoplz: Some should stop being so angry at pixels.Nothing is more tastier than seeing someones credibility fall from doing the opposite of what they are spewing angrily at someone hohohoho :iconiultracameplz:

Art Contest: 'Color that Fighter' 4 DaysSince the contest ends on 15th June ..this means that 4 days are left, use the chance to win maybe 3 Months of a dA premium account, but most of all use the chance to practise coloring and showing us all your talent!Art Contest: 'Color that Fighter' 4 Days3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Rules and more Infos are below
Hi all, due to the quite big feedback we got here, including some voices who mentioned there are relative few images to choose from in the Lineart folder http://fighting-games-elite.deviantart.com/gallery/34515779 i thought about what to do to change it
So i asked over 50 artists if we can use their linearts or sketches for this contest, so far i got only positive feedback and could add many new linearts already.
Expect a lot more in the upcoming 1-3 days. To make it fair for everyone who started working on an entry already but sees a 2nd line art he wants to use for the contest the rules are changed a bit
2 entries per artist are allowed instead of only one
The Contest ends on June 15th

So I've been thinking about writing this for awhile, and recently I noticed a lot of people are commenting in ways that can make the artist feel uncomfortable.
This journal is about commenting etiquette.
If you comment like this I'm not mad. Please don't feel like im targeting anyone or anything- it's just something I've noticed a ton of people do.
to start out, I'd like to show you some of the types of comments I see A LOT
the self-pity comment
"This is really pretty. I'll never be able to draw like this I'm awful at drawing"
this is the most awkward way to get attention- the artist feels pressured to give you attention and compliment you. This can be super hard on the artist.
INSTEAD, make it positive!

Webcomic Feedback: Our WorldSome creators have been kind enough to send me samples of their work this summer- so it's time to share feedback! First up, it's Our World by Kuurion and Captain Video.Webcomic Feedback: Our World3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
After reading the first comic, I like the cast- excellent variety with the characters, it creates some great interpersonal dynamics. Jill is the most relatable, struggling to cope with the onslaught that is Alex. Although I think one of my favorite pairings is Alex alongside Art- their personalities seem delightfully incompatible, I love how flustered he gets.
The comic seems to be a classic slice-of-life setup- but I like the hint at the beginning that there's more to the situation, especially with that strange cuneiform tattoo... And it culminates at the end of the first issue with a mysterious outburst of power. The supernatural mystery element adds a fascinating layer to the mix.
And the slice-of-life portion seems t
What Song Are You Into This Week? Mk. VIIHey there music lovers! It's that time again! I'm all settled in to my temporary new home and hopefully past the brunt of my awful last week. And you know what that means? Time for another music share! Because it's been a while since the last one and I'm looking for some new sounds for my new comp! :iconturtlelaplz:What Song Are You Into This Week? Mk. VII1 year ago in Personal More Like This
You know the rules! And if you don't, here they are for you!
1. I'm not asking for your "favorite song ever" exactly, just for that song that's been stuck in your head lately. Or that song you can't seem to take off repeat. You know the kind. XD Just something that you've enjoyed listening too lately.
2. It doesn't have to be a new song. It could be an old song you've rediscovered recently, or one you'd never heard before. Or whatever.
3. Please post a link to your song so we can all enjoy it!
4. Please refrain from posting song with excess profanity or cursing.
5. Please, try to keep it to two songs per person. I try hard to listen to everyone's songs, but it's diffi
In Light of Recent Events...People have been coming to me asking me for my thoughts on this, so I'll just say it here:In Light of Recent Events...8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I can't help but feel a bit concerned for the current art community at large.
There has been a recent case of an artist that even I admire rather greatly known to be referencing and copying imagery directly without citing the source, and then using the output work for profit.
I'm not going to take any sides on any of the matter. I personally feel the proper steps are being taken on the artist's part to rectify the situation and continue on a better course. We're all human, we make mistakes, and we all deserve second chances in whatever we do, whether it's subjectively wrong or right.
But the level of passiveness as to what has been actually done is disturbing to me.
I understand supporting artists when they've been seemingly vilified by the masses of the internets, that's natural to do. And we as artists appreciate that kind of support when it happens. By the Nine, I know it has happe
Going to Florida~!Vacation BreakGoing to Florida~!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just writing a journal entry to let you know I'm going to be gone from the 20th to the 1st. I'm going to Florida! \o/
I haven't been there since I was 6 or so. Ichi and I are going; my parents just retired so they rented a house down there and we are staying with them for a while. Disney World, Universal, shopping, all the fun recreational stuff! This is the second really "nice" trip I've ever been on, so I'm excited (but also scared of crossing the border considering my previous troubles...).
Also I'd like to check out a Sanrio store at some point because I've never been *_*
I will have internet there so I will be able to reply to emails and messages and things, but like I just said on my edited colouring book journal entry, I will not be able to confirm any payments that are coming through mail, for the time being. Sorry about that~
Maybe I'll even be able to do a livestream down there, that'd be nice \o/
I will take lots of pictures. TvT

User Is Selling Stolen Pixiv OCs and UTAUsHello everyone.User Is Selling Stolen Pixiv OCs and UTAUs1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Cut-Adop is selling adopts that were not made by them, nor do they belong to them. They are all from Pixiv it seems, and several are UTAUs. (Digital singing characters for a Vocaloid-like program basically.) Reporting is not necessary, but would be appreciated.
Here are the stolen DAs, and the actual artists:
ACTUAL: http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=3294298 (All 3 stolen OCs were taken from this Pixiv user.) (THESE AVATARS ARE FROM THE GAME TRICKSTER ONLINE.)
ACTUAL: http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=42329586 (Considering the Pixiv user's style, all three are probably stolen from her.)
