Pokemon Fire Red Nuzlocke ArchiveClick to view nuzlocke rules and reasoning.Pokemon Fire Red Nuzlocke Archive3 years ago in Personal More Like This
That is what I'm pretty much doing now. Uhh. I am doing a Nuzlocke for my fire red pokemon game. Mainly because I love that version from the memories I had when I first played it xD So yeah. This is an archive of all the comics (so far). This would make it easier for me to update than every single comic.
Since I am at a loss of what to really post due to art and writing block, I'm going to post my comics for every part.
Fire Red Nuzlocke Synopsis
A girl, more or less classified as a hermit who doesn't do anything but sleep all the time and play video games, mysteriously wakes up in a windowless blue room with her gender being asked by a relatively familiar professor she remembers in her video games. Thinking that it's some sort of really cool virtual reality game, she lies to Oak about her gender and name. Setting off from the small and quaint Pallet Town, she begi

9 reasons to adore OIL PAINT1. FORGIVING - Oil is, even today, still one of the easiest and most forgiving mediums you can work in. Creating an oil painting is in fact relatively easy compared to other mediums such as watercolor or pastels.9 reasons to adore OIL PAINT2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
2. EASY TO CONTROL - Oil paints are easy to put onto a canvas or panel. You just put some paint on your brush and rub it on the canvas or panel. The paint will generally not run or move.
3. SMOOTH BLENDING - Oil paints are king of the ring when blending colors together and creating subtle blends. Wet-on-wet is the sure fire way to get a smooth transition in your painting.
4. COLOR STABILITY - One great property of oil paints is that they don't change color when they dry as opposed, for example, to acrylics or watercolor. Oils stay pretty-much the same for a long period of time (however, in a very long period of time, oil paintings have tendency to yellow).
5. EASY TO REMAKE - It's simple, just scrape the paint off with a paint knife and repa
Souffle: New Polymer ClayWe all have a favorite brand of polymer clay, but some of us use Polyform's brands almost exclusively (Sculpey, Premo, etc) because they are more readily available where we live. So it's not surprising that there's some excitement about Soufflé, the new product made by Polyform, released just a couple of days ago on April 30th.Souffle: New Polymer Clay1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I wanted to write an article for us miniature food crafters, to summarize what it means to us. If you have already tried it please share your opinion! Also let me know if you want me to write more articles about other brands.
Characteristics (taken from Polyform's page):
It's lighter than regular polymer clay, but not as much as Sculpey Ultralight.
Great for those of us that create jewelry, specially earrings. Other than that, I don't think it'll make a lot of difference, really small objects could actually benefit from being a little heavier.
They claim that it's perfect for caning. <

You have pretty awesome powers!
Although the usage of life-energy related powers are quite natural in your world... you're one of the few individuals that has mind bending powers. This type of powers are usually quite bothersome to learn, but you have a natural gift for learning that kind of stuff, which caused you to be able to do so ever since you were a kid. You cannot only read the minds of the people around you, and predict their actions, but you're able to manipulate their thoughts fully (and therefore their actions). All wi
New old JobStarting this month I will be working again in my old beloved job as a freelance illustrator and painter. There were many factors that this place was pretty awful. The boss had hired me as a designer for his products (specially Shirts). Finally, I had to make calculations the whole day on ancient monitors which flickered so hart that I couldn't see much at the evenings. I didn't make drawing there too, particularly no materials for it were available in the company. Nevertheless, the boss had ideas for drawings,New old Job2 years ago in Personal More Like This

A week ago, I have terminated my employment and in the interim two more employee have also stopped working there...

I'm totally looking forward to the new, old work now!

New Thumbnails + OpinionsOnly beta testers can see it yet. But I just wanted to share my opinion about it and would also like to know yours.New Thumbnails + Opinions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok... so I personally don't like it.
First of all, those are really big, it may be better for people with higher screen resolution but to me they look huge and it take longer to scroll and see everything. I think there should be an option where people can choose if they want to browse with normal or big thumbnails.
Also, on deviations with transparent backgrounds, on the thumbnails the backgrounds are not transparent anymore.
I also don't like how everything is now congested. I liked when everything was aligned and clean, it was easier to browse and easier on the eyes, and also faster to look at. This + the bigger thumbnails, it just got terrible to browse and it don't make me feel like looking at the front page anymore. I just look at the first few deviations at the top now, and that's also what most people are going to see too, giving less exposure to other deviations t

Wooow, this is probably the worst-run convention ever.
Let me start with the good stuff first, since the bad things will be a far longer list :<
As usual, the people are WONDERFUL T-T!!
It's always great to see familiar people from previous years/other cons (though I suck at remembering names, sorrrry) and meet/talk to new people. Some people kept coming back and buying a little more each time, it was really nice ;-;
Also a random girl hugged me and some guys asked to take photos together (which was a little awkward lolll).
:iconno-wei: gave me a GORGEOUS drawing of Katsura & Eli reading Parashi comics!! It's soo sweeetttt I kept taking it out and looking at it every hour or so, all weekend T_T I LOVE IT SO MUCH, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
All in all everyone was super nice and I got so many compliments >o
Artist Goals and RacismIntrospectionArtist Goals and Racism7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I think it’s important for artists to be introspective. I think it should be the goal of any cartoonist or artist to take a step back, look at the world, and question and challenge all assumptions and normalities. So often little social stigmas and issues go completely unnoticed by a vast majority of the population, that I think it’s important to be reminded of where we are, how things work, and challenge the status-quo.
I believe that’s one of the most fundamentally important things about being an artist. It’s not the artistic skill level, it’s your ability to poke fun at stuff and make average people question their routines. While artistic skill is important, the average consumer doesn’t really care about artistic merits if the overall message is conveyed well. I’ve seen many stick-figure comics and supposedly “low-skill” artists resonate with people because of the message they’re sending.
