PE: Drawing Faces in Manga Style Basic notions for drawing heads and facesPE: Drawing Faces in Manga Style2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome back everyone! Today I'm going to teach you the basics of drawing a face. Before I start, I want to clarify that this is the way I do it, but there are a thousand other methods that you can follow, make sure you understand the concepts and apply them the best you can, you don't have to stictly do it like I do, develop your own way and keep on learning!
Many artists suggest using circles to start sketching the head and the body but... I don't use them. I've never used them. I tried using them in the past and it only resulted in messed up lines and strange-looking faces and heads. So I dropped the circles. If you feel comfortable using them, I bow to you and I encourage you to keep using them, but I'm afraid you won't see any circles in my tutorial

A Collaboration between MARX77 & DeevElliott
What must any of us do before we can understand what we read in the Book of Life? When is one ready to write upon its pages his or her own contributions?
Life is no passive gathering of information. It is not a spectator sport. Only in participation is one truly alive. In order to express feelings or opinions about anything in life, one must have a personal experience of it. Only personal experience conveys the qualification and the right to speak, to write or to create art as explanation and explication of any topic of discussion and debate.
Interview-should you become a professional artistHi everyone,Interview-should you become a professional artist11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Meiyue has done a very nice interview here : Should You Become a Professional Artist?
She interviewed a few artists and myself about working professionally. The answers are varied as we all have had different experiences, so it's good to see the range of things an artist can go through!
If you are interested in art as a career, it might give you some tips and suggestions.
Wii U games Where U at?!The following is a rant about Nintendo and the videogame industry now days in general :'I Warning its a big wall of texts, Nintendo.. water u doing....Wii U games Where U at?!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I might as well begin with an apology for a journal I posted half a year ago back in December 2012 about the misleading fun and joy I had with the Wii U. I say misleading because at the time yes I was having lots of fun with games like New Super Mario Brothers Wii U and Scribblenauts Unlimited and Nintendoland. And sure! They were great fun, I mean those are games that I have finished already (after like a month, cos its so freakin easy! Difficulty level where did you go) but I might still one day go back to it and replay it from the beginning just for fun's sake, but then now what..? Its mid May 2013 and there hasn't been any new games that ain't either cross platform or ones I ain't interested in. And trust me if the Wii U game is cross platform I would definately get the PS3 or 360 version because 1) The controller's more comf

I will not be subjected to criminal abuseIts time for another story, do you guys want a story? I will give you one. This one is about my early days in the work industry and how you should always becareful and know your legal rights before you head in, you do not want to be subjected to criminal abuse without knowing. This happened a few years back, straight out of Design College, when I was still an 'Amateur Graphic Designer' as they like to call me. So I was searching online for jobs and found one that requires a Graphic Designer with artistic skills who can create original characters as well as making little icons and graphics stuff. I was like HELL YEAH THATS ME, so I sent them my portfolio, back then it had really unprofessional messy drawings and then a few graphic design works and photography bullshit pieces that I threw in here and there to show my 'range', I didn't have a consistant style and I had no idea what people wanted to see lol. So the company saw my work and they told me to come in. I was reallyI will not be subjected to criminal abuse3 years ago in Personal More Like This

i´m writing this lines, but i don´t know why.
maybe because i´m hoping to find some consolation in it.
we spend so much of our lives,
not saying the things we want to say.
the things we should say.
we speak in code and send little messages,
i will miss you- very much.
now- is the best time. to be alone if you need to, to stay with family or friends, to find love.
to enjoy every moment. it´s okay.
Season Wrap UpWell, season 2 has finally come to a close, and I'm sitting here and looking back on it all, with a few thoughts I want to share.Season Wrap Up4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just want to say thank you (again) to everyone that watched and enjoyed the MLP season finale this weekend. There were lots of hard nights and long hours from all of us on the DHX crew to make it the best would possibly could. Of course, there are things that are always going to be imperfect, but overall from what I gather, it seemed well-received.
I was also shocked at how many people recognized my OC pony that made a small cameo in this weekend's episode. As a blanket response to a lot of the same questions I've been getting all weekend: No, I did not voice her and I'm unsure as to who did. I would assume just one of the regular VA's. She was put in kind of last minute. The artist who drew her in the storyboard, made her look like my pony (just a coincidence), and after seeing i

The Inevitability of IndividualityI've been working on this for quite a while and I really hope you guys enjoy the result. I was looking through my favourites and it struck me how images with a similar composition can look so different, particularly of people. The phrase "The inevitability of individuality" came to me, and thus this project was born. Now, posting it, it feels like a piece of artwork in itself but sadly all the images belong to other people (click through and fave!). In any case the point of this art piece is to remind us all that no matter what we do we are uniquely ourselves. There's no point, and no need, to try and be someone else.

Voyage to the Unknown: Food ArtI have previously done searches for certain items, or run across some marvelous photographs in the still life section. Today, though, #thevoyage takes us to the Artisan Crafts>Culinary Arts>Food Art section of the site. There were a lot of wonderful pieces to choose from, and I will admit that presentation played a good part in whether I chose to feature it as well as skill in the artistic quality of the foods. I understand that not everyone has photographic prowess, but it makes a difference.Voyage to the Unknown: Food Art5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I would like to note that there are quite a few trolls posting in these sections, and that you should feel free to report their content as misplaced at the very least. If you happen across "warez" (which I did in another artisan section), please report that as well.

Featured Artist - Bobby DriscollBest known to Disney fans as the voice of Peter Pan!Featured Artist - Bobby Driscoll3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bobby Driscoll lived a very short, rollercoaster life.
He was discovered as a natural actor in a barbershop at the very young age of five-and-a-half! And, he was the first actor to sign a long term contract with the Walt Disney animation department.
At the age of 12, he was given an Oscar for outstanding juvenile actor for his performances in So Dear to my Heart (A Disney Movie) and The Window (RKO Picture).
At about the age of 16, Bobby Driscoll played his most famous roll - Peter Pan. He acted out all the parts himself before they were animated onto film. He was also the first boy ever to play Peter Pan (traditionally, Peter Pan is played by a girl.)
Here are some production pictures for y'all!
Unfortunately, life doesn't always have a fairytale ending for us like in the magical world of Disney. ;_;
Bobby Driscoll was introduced to drugs at the age of seventeen, had several run-ins with the law, and was sentenc

JohnSu goes to AX 2013Hey guys, sorry I took so long! This year I'm going to try something a little different and not Flash-dependent. I wasn't really sure how much I was gaining by making the pages squiggly and separated by animated transitions, so without further adieu, here's my report on this year's Anime Expo, now with alt-text!

My biggest regret this year was being too busy and not getting around the artist alley more and visiting people and panels. Thanks to everyone who visited, and sorry to everyone who I didn't visit (or visited only very briefly)! I feel really rude in retrospect. I also feel like I didn't really get to see much of what AX had to offer this year by confining myself to my table for most of it.
Next year I hope to have some sort of book-type product at my table, but knowing myself, I will probably either give up or miss deadlines again and you'll see a repeat of the first two images in the report.
MAN, I sure got tired of drawing myself.

'Maxstep' was first heard at Gayo Daejun 2011??As some of you may know, at the end of this past october, SM Entertainment released a collaborative album/music video called “MAXSTEP" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Au5fic4IqEs)'Maxstep' was first heard at Gayo Daejun 2011??3 years ago in Personal More Like This
SM Ent. and Hyundai partnered up to release the ‘PYL Younique Album‘. Members included Super Junior‘s Eunhyuk, Girls’ Generation’s Hyoyeon, SHINee‘s Taemin, Super Junior-M‘s Henry, EXO-K‘s Kai, and EXO-M‘s Luhan. It is the first time an entertainment agency has collaborated with a car company to release an album... BUT this is not the first time we have heard it!
Crusing on youtube as I usually do, I found the 'Hallyu Orchestra' clip that SM did for Gayo Daejun 2011(right here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=dCSBQtJs0hc) and right at 3:18 in the video is a dance sequence with Eunhyuk, Taemin, and Kai dancing to Maxstep... 10 months before it was officially released.
