Hey.You are beautiful.Hey.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You are important.
And don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
On those days - the ones where you can't even cry because you've used up all the tears - just try to stop and think. Think about the people who do love you. Who do care for you so much that if anything happened to you, they wouldn't know what to do.
I just want to write this somewhere for people to see because goddammit, I know. I know how it feels to feel like you're in a constant black hole. I still do. And I have been for too long now.
But I will not give in because I know deep in my heart, someday it's going to get better.
If anyone ever needs to talk, I'll be here. It may take a couple of days to respond, but I'll try.
And why am I posting this?
Let's just say that something happened today and I felt compelled to reach out because I know that even a few words on a screen can make all the more difference in a person's life.

HOW TO GET PUBLISHEDThis is an old piece I wrote and posted a while ago, but just recently people have been asking what my experiences were with regard to publishing and getting published - so here it is again, with a few new notes added about dA and Madefire!HOW TO GET PUBLISHED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a very honest view based on 27 years experience as a writer, artist and publisher. The point here is to try to HELP you go into the business enlightened and with open-eyes, knowing what to expect. IT IS NOT INTENDED TO PUT YOU OFF! However, you should know that getting into comics is NOT easy - as too many people frequently imagine - and neither is it a glamorous 'rock-star' existence. It is hard work, as are all trades, and it should be treated as such. I see too many people despondent and badly hurt by their experience, and this can be avoided if you know what you are getting into right from the outset.
Getting into comics is something a lot of people want to know how to do, but there's a lot of questions you w

Changing my drawing-styleYou know... I thought about my drawing style. I really, really started to hate it. And I think I grew out of my anime phase. Sure, I still love anime and drawing it, but I feel so uncomfortable to still draw super tiny noses and big eyes. My style changes every week, this is why I don't upload much stuff anymore, the style isn't consistent.Changing my drawing-style2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I made an experiment: http://sta.sh/015nwbpcst48
I'm still not sure. not sure at all.
A few days ago I even thought about stopping drawing as such, never doing it again.
Urgh, I'm so unsure right now. Could I maybe have some opinions? ; w ;

Draw a character contest!*CLOSED*My daughter, who is 6, has been collaborating with me. She tells me this continuing story every night as my bedtime story and in the morning I get up and write down the tales she told me the night before. I am the only artist for her and am holding this fun little contest to hopefully inspire some of my fellow DA's to gather up some fanart for her. So here are the rules!Draw a character contest!*CLOSED*2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. One or more characters from the story must be in the picture.
2. No nudity or sexually provocative themes.
3. Backgrounds are a bonus, not a necessity.
4. ANY visual medium of art, it's up to you! (pencils, photography, watercolor, digital...it's all gravy)
~How to participate~
Follow the rules above and when you have a finished piece you want to enter into the contest send me the link in a note. After a recent poll the majority wished to extend the deadline. Therefore the contest will end on 8/11/2013**EDITED**. The judge will be myself

It's that time of year again! The leaves are turning, it's getting cold, and that sudden and insatiable urge for warm, holiday fanart of you favorite characters starts to creep up on you from the back of your mind.

galaco Trial To Be Available In Her Albumgalaco, now deactivated since Halloween, will be available for a trial version soon (which will be the only legal way to use her until she is released in spring). Her company, Stardust Records, are going to re-release her album galaco SUPER BEST (previously only sold a Shibasaki Kou's live tour) as galaco NEW SUPER BEST. galaco NEW SUPER BEST is going to contain not only new songs with new album jacket art that galaco SUPER BEST didn't contain but more importantly a trial version of her VOCALOID voicebank in a separate disc. Right now it's unknown if the trial will be of her old voicebank or the new one set for release in spring (I'm speculating it's her old one since her new one, as far as we know, is only 60% complete and is not set to be released until a while). The album will go on sale at December 18th, 2013 for 2,500 yen and you can buy from the links below.galaco Trial To Be Available In Her Album1 year ago in Personal More Like This

You are always welcome to draw something for Katie, but I'm no longer offering art back. She is better now.
Please consider ing this journal if you support it; it may get more exposure, which would give Katie more art.
...So, as my scrap-watchers know, my little sister Katie is sick. (I mentioned it here for those who wanted to leave her a comment.)
Well, her cough worsened and today she is in the hospital with Dad. Her fever hit 105 degrees Fahrenheit, but it is lower now and she is getting the best care that they can give her. It's pneumonia again, and she'll probably be in the hospital for several days before she can come home.
Among other things, she took her Kindle Fire with her, so she has internet access—i.e., I can e-mail her a link to this journal.
Edit: Katie's internet access at the hospital is not very great, so she will be seeing all these pictures when she arrives home! Dad believ
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
