Devious Journal EntryHey everyone, I've had a lot of people asking me about FZD and whether I recommend it. There isn't a short answer. And I don't have THE answer for you. It's a personal decision and every person will have a different set of factors to take into account before making a decision one way or another.Devious Journal Entry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll do my best to be as straight forward about this as I can. Before I went to FZD, I was doing corporate transaction tax consulting, and I could hardly draw anything. I did a few pieces of abstract art when I was in high school. When looking at schools, I was looking at what would help me gain the skillset I needed to get my foot into the industry. I was NOT interested in schools that you could cruise through working only 8 hours a day. I didn't care about if the teachers actually cared about me or not, as long as they taught me how to do concept art. I didn't care if the teachers were compassionate and nice, in fact I preferred they were pretty brutal and honest. But however they were, I did

China trip post (photo heavy)Mm I don't know how to go about this in an organized manner, so this will just be a stream of photos with my intermittent narration.China trip post (photo heavy)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Our trip was Shanghai > Hangzhou > Nanjing > Suzhou > Wuxi > back to Shanghai. Then we went to Hong Kong on our own.
Oh yeah, first, since I have no photos of these (for good reason): THE SQUAT TOILETS. They suck. They stink. You can always tell if there's a bathroom nearby by the smell in the air! Half the time the flush doesn't even work. All the used toilet paper is tossed in a bin, so the smell just lingers and lingers. For some reason, sometimes they sell food right outside the bathrooms. LIKE WHY?! I don't know how anybody can think about eating with that smell there.
I drank as little as possible. Between my sis and I, we also brought 5-6 rolls of toilet paper, so it was more than enough. (We left the extra rolls at Grandma's in HK afterwards haha.)
Anyhoo, onto pictures...
From our place to China was a 12 hour flight, 4 hour break at airport, then

Having fun chatting...
But no one can knows that behind all your "writing" laughs,
your "xD" icons
Is hiden a sad face, crying...

And no one of all your friends are here to comfort you...
Because you are trying to make it feel like you are ok...
Even if the things you want the most is crying in a friend's shoulders....
History of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefaces3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Typefaces are our instruments to construct words and sentences. Of course this very article couldn’t be written without type other than writing by hand and scanning it in, but I wouldn’t know how to save the file or how to access the website to upload it to if I had no access to typefaces. Of course I don’t have to say where type can be found; it’s absolutely everywhere. However, most people don’t consider where typefaces come from. Most of my life and even the first 5 years or so of my design career I was absolutely ignorant of where typefaces came from. I mean, they were just "there" on the computer and I never considered someone actually had to make typefaces for us to use—letter by letter. In this article I will discuss the history of Roman typefaces; how it progressed during the ages, how each style can be recognized and how to select typefaces consciously and logically r
Macabre OC ContestAfter some debating, I have results!Macabre OC Contest3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
First Place: $30 USD or the equivalent in dA points
Awarded because it is incredibly, incredibly creepy to look at... I actually can't look at the picture for more than a couple of seconds before I always want to navigate away.
Second Place: $20 USD or the equivalent in dA points
The design of this creature is so cool, while also being really appealing to look at! I like that he lacks legs.
Third Place: $10 USD or the equivalent in dA points
This is super eerie and interesting to look at at the same time, one of the few that lacked a definitive human form. Worm-like creatures are always very interesting.
Some special mentions, other entries I debated against these that I also adored (they will be given a $5 or 400 DA Point honorary prize):
There were a lot of very good entries, and a wide range of macabre subjects!

BAN ALL KITCHEN KNIVES!
CHILDREN OF ALL AGES GET STABBED BY KITCHEN KNIVES ALL THE TIME, WHETHER ACCIDENTALLY OR ON PURPOSE! THEY ARE FAR TOO DANGEROUS FOR KIDS TO HANDLE, THEREFORE THEY MUST BE ABOLISHED!
TEACHING CHILDREN HOW TO SAFELY HANDLE KNIVES AND MONITORING YOUR KIDS WHILE THEY’RE IN THE KITCHEN TO ENSURE THEY’RE IN NO DANGER OF BEING MAULED BY KITCHEN IMPLEMENTS?! THAT’S TOTALLY ABSURD! CLEARLY THE MOST LOGICAL COURSE OF ACTION IS TO BAN KITCHEN KNIVES AND IMPRISON ALL CUTLERY MANUFACTURERS!

How to Write Helpful Critiques/ FeedbackNow that I have been looking at several literature pieces a week, there aren't a whole lot of comments that provide the writers with feedback. So here's a guide that I thought might be useful for some people on how to provide helpful feedback and critiques.How to Write Helpful Critiques/ Feedback1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
Before I begin, I would like to say that I have been a part of a wonderful writing group for the past four years. The writing club is where I first learned how to do a critique. I have also been taught some critique techniques during my college studies. In addition to the writing club and college classes, I have been doing my best to leave helpful feedback and critiques here on deviantART. This guide is based entirely off of my personal experience. As I think of more tips, I will be editing this guide.

Respect YourselfMy friend shared this video to warn other artists about how she was taken advantage of, and I believe this is a very important message that every artist should hear.Respect Yourself3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier. You don't have to degrade yourself for some disrespectful publisher to get you art se

Citrus GlassI met a woman twice my age.Citrus Glass2 years ago in Personal More Like This
She translated the fancy dinner menu to plain English.
Out came the well dressed waiter with a tall pink bubbly drink.
Don't worry, she told me, no alcohol.
I took a sip of the strange soap like bubbles....and guess what?
A mixture of lemon, and grapefruit, it was bittersweet and sour.
Over the glimming candle lights,
She smiled, "Don't let fear stand in the way of your success,
Go chase your artistic dreams as far as you like.
Take a class in Paris, look at other options,
You have the talents to make it.
Don't give up."
Ok....lemon drink....and those advices like my comic strip? What the hell? No, she had no access to my art account.
It's slightly creepy how things work in my world...We parted with a hug, she handed me a card and instructed "Open it later."
$500 was enclosed inside with her romantic cursive black ink that read
"For your art."
True story....I'd draw about it but I can't. You'd have to settle for a
