F**k-ugly watermarks.I follow a lot of insanely talented artists here on DA, people whose work I look at in sheer awe and whose skill I can only dream of one day matching.F**k-ugly watermarks.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unsurprisingly, that high quality of work leads to them either having their work ripped off or operating in fear of that happening. They, quite rightly, want to protect their art with a watermark, something which I'm not against at all.
What I am against, what I hate, is people using that god-awful DA watermark.
If you are a good artist: don't be a lazy git. Make your own watermark, use your own logo. You'll protect your work without doing it the disservice of having some automatically-generated arse-smear ruining it.
Charlie HebdoThis journal goes out in respect to all who died, suffered and affected by the atrocities committed at Charlie Hebdo.Charlie Hebdo5 months ago in Personal More Like This
As I write this with tears in my eyes, the vile and barbaric perpetrators of the mindless crime committed today in Paris are still on the loose. They will be found and prosecuted by a civilised court, because an eye for an eye is not the way of developed society. No matter how you look at it. Especially, because the perpetrators wish death, they should not be granted so (it's not even possible legally).
I'm not telling you what to think about this, but I'm not feeling the PR of this 'religion of peace'. Don't let your emotions talk. Let rationality rule. And remember kids, no matter how many of us they kill, the comics will keep on flowing, more perverse, more insulting and more lulzy.
This is where the line is drawn between barbarians who missed a step in evolution and peop

Hallmarks of Lazy Writing
ShadowedAcolyte here for projecteducate's Prose Basics Week. I decided to tackle "lazy writing" as a topic, because they always say "write what you know" and boy, do I know laziness. Then I realized there were dozens of ways to be a lazy writer, so I heroically narrowed the scope of my article down to one broad topic: readymades. After talking about what a "readymade" is, I'll explain why they should be avoided in writing prose*, and I'll finish with some tips to help you avoid using them yourself.
Before we go any further, I should note that the term is not a technical one. It is the word I was taught to use to identify a set of common problems with weak writing, so it's the word I use. I hope you'll find this article helpful, but it's not a textbook.
*I say "prose" because it's Prose Basics Week, but readymades infect poetry as well. If you're more a poet than a prose
Reflections on ART and its Place in the WorldOver the past couple of years, I have given considerable thought as to what the world, specifically, human culture, would be like if there were no artists, if there was no art. Or perhaps more to the point, where exactly does the artist find him/herself placed on THE LIST OF VITALLY IMPORTANT PEOPLE?Reflections on ART and its Place in the World3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Exactly what initiated such ruminations within me is not altogether clear; perhaps it was simply my endless love and passion and even, at times, awe of the creative imagination and visionary splendor that we humans are fortunate enough to possess --- that mysterious quality that puts us so far beyond the capabilities of the millions of other species with which we share our homeworld; or it may have been my becoming aware of the tragic and frankly outrageous degree of funding cuts for the arts in our educational institutions that our government has deemed necessary in order to prolong its own agenda of (mostly) senseless foreign conflicts and domestic politi

Disney vs Lucas ArtsIf ever you bring up Disney in a conversation, people immediately recite tired old issues with the company that haven't been true for a long time. For example, complaining about the excess of half-assed sequels. That was part of Michael Eisner's regime. When he left the studio the quality Disney was producing suddenly skyrocketed considerably. Likewise the excessive merchandising and branding of Disney related products has also ceased to be as all-consuming now that Eisner is gone. In fact, a lot of the main issues people had with Disney during the 90's and early 2000's was a result of Eisner.Disney vs Lucas Arts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since Eisner left, the Disney studio has done a REMARKABLE job in clearing their name of many of the atrocities they had committed during his regime. They promptly turned the animation department around and have even begun doing 2-D animated films again after Eisner said "no." Granted, at the moment 2-D is still in hiatus, but the situation isn't as dire as it use to be and there's still promise

My mum, dad and grandparents have also been amazing enough to contribute to my travel fund, with what I consider a lot of money. I now have enough for my flights to where I need to go, but I am yet to gather spending/emergency money for it, which means I am halfway there. I'm still very happy with my progress though!
We all went out for dinner today too. By 'we', I mean me, my sister, my brothers plus their girlfriends and babies, and on top of that, my mum and dad and their partners.

One of the prevailing themes of the new movie, apparently, is that everything is predestined. April was predestined to meet the turtles, and the turtles were predestined to become mutants. Everyone is connected to everyone else in ways that are flabbergastingly stupid. So much for random chance creating the turtles... Another theme is that this is more or less April O’ Neil’s movie. Not the ninja turtles. April is the main character. April is the focus of the film. The turtles are there, but they’re side characters in the same way the Autobots were side characters in the Transformers films.
The reason I’m bringing this up here now before the film is even out is because... well... I want it to fail. That’s a little selfish, I know, but I honestly don

How to use DPI properly.This is one of the biggest problems I see other people running into, and I've had to explain it a countless number of times. The bummer is that it's really quite simple, but if you don't know how it works it's easy to get mixed up.How to use DPI properly.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The following is more or less what I'm going to tell you, but in a less comprehensive fashion. So if these 2 main points make enough sense to you, then you can decide if you need more information and explanation:
You only need to set DPI when working with actual dimensions like inches or centimeters, etc. So if you're working directly in pixels already, it's useless.
Therefore, the only time you really need to set the DPI is when you need to ensure good print quality, and know your real world dimensions but not the exact pixels. The program will set the pixels for you based off the other information.
First and foremost, you REALLY don't need to work in real world dimensions such as inches or centimeters unless
