FROM THE ARTIST EXPERIENCE.... - DIFFICULT CHOICEI guess it's high time for the next story, especially when I've just finished new portion of illustrations for yet another children story. Today I'd like to talk a little bit about how is it like to draw for children's book.FROM THE ARTIST EXPERIENCE.... - DIFFICULT CHOICE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Normally when you get such job, you are usually told what you should draw. Like: "we want a very cute kitten with white fur and blue eyes, background should be simple, in a dark color" - that's not a lot of info but it's good cause it gives you some freedom. I don't really like to draw very specific things, there is no room for creativity.
So you were told something vague about the cover, after some time you finished your job, everyone is happy (or not) and you can move to the inside. For me it was cover + 17 black&white lineart illustration. Just like those:
Nobody tells me what to draw on those inside sketches. I just get the text and pick something for every chapter. You would say that it's awesome, cause I get to draw what I wa

Furries vs. The Human BullyHelp spread the message against bullying.Furries vs. The Human Bully3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
+Fav this journal, and proclaim dominance
over your feral human animal!
A couple weeks ago, I went to a raucous furry party.
Oh heavens, that's an odd way to start a personal story.
A good friend of mine called me up, saying that she and her friend were going to a monthly get-together in Orange County where a bunch of furries throw a party open to everyone. Furries...not really my thing. My experience within the furry community is limited to the occasional commission I get, but when it comes to conversing and interacting with furries, I'm a bit inexperienced.
"Just a party?" I ask.
"Yeah, something they do every month."
"Ah, so just a get-together," I breathe a sigh of relief. "Not like a bunch of fursuiters or crazies."
"..." She replies.
"..." I implore.
"..." She laments.
Apparently...it was a bunch of the crazies.
"Yeah, they're actually going to do a fursuit parade."
To all you aspiring artistsI just felt like giving a little motivational speech, based on some questions and feedback I've gotten from young, aspiring artists.To all you aspiring artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of you say you look at my art and get inspired, and I just love hearing that because that's just what I want; to be able to inspire! It also inspires be back, because I know very well how it's like to work your butt off and not feeling you're getting anywhere. And I can relate when some of you say you actually lose all motivation when you see my work (or others' work, of course), because you feel you could never reach that same "level". I was there too, I've felt just like you guys! I have also had the nagging feeling that my art might not be good enough, but those thoughts are all stupid. Yeah, they are. I'll be rude enough to say that right now.
Art can be very frustrating in your "growth period", if I can call it that. And while being your own worst critic can help you grow, it can also tear you down and destroy everything called 'motivation'. So
SPIKE updates - nov2013Yesh, it's about time I gave you guys an update on the progress of my novel, "SPIKE".SPIKE updates - nov20131 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've gotten a lot of notes and comments asking when the book will be finished, how far I've come in the writing process, or how many chapters there are so far, and so forth... And I love getting questions like that, because that means people are interested in my work, many of which say they even love my work, and.. just wow, I mean, I'm completely honest when I say that it means a whole lot to me. And I'm serious when I say that without the support from you guys (you all know who you are <3 ), I would never have bothered continuing the SPIKE story. I would probably just have posted chapter 0, deleted it, and stuffed it all in a drawer and possibly even given up on the whole story-teller dream. Feedback is very important to me, which sounds very selfish, I know, but I used to be incredibly insecure of myself and everything I did. I had this dream of becoming a cartoonist to have my stories told, and

Unleash your dark sideIdk if many of you know, but when I was younger I got bullied in school for what I enjoyed, I bring this up because of what recently happen to a kid for liking MLP and being bullied for it, to the point of almost taking his own life.Unleash your dark side1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I hated school and people in general, I know there's no real easy way to handle it and everyone takes things differently.
But I want to encourage those that do have problems to try to your best to vent with your art even if people around you won't listen..
I know it seems silly now and weird. but back when I was bullied and ignored, rocketchu and growlash was how I got out my anger that I felt to the ones that bullied me.
sometimes it can be fun to play the bad guy through art, to get your revenge that way or at lest it helped satisfy my hurt and anger back in high school. I used them to make my art work even better.

(C) Adam1704. A Socialist Theory towards SocietyI am societys pawn on the chessboard of life, i can fall for those around me, the knights and the king and queens of which i am told to protect, because my piece in society is worth so little and offered no appreciation for my efforts. Only by venturing to the other side of that board of life, passing each obstacle, each square, can i elevate to a more higher level within society. But i am just one pawn of many pawns, and there is no guarantee any of us can make it. It is a long road, one of many battles and obstacles, but if we do not give up, and we play our parts to the fullist advantage, we can achieve our self-actualization and evolve into something more.(C) Adam1704.

You are ALLOWED to dislike a DD, BUT PLEASE!http://help.deviantart.com/873/You are ALLOWED to dislike a DD, BUT PLEASE!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. DO NOT COMMENT COMPLAINING ABOUT YOUR DISAPPROVAL.
I've ranted about this before, and I'm doing it again because CLEARLY people have yet to get the message.
People. Do. Not. Choose. To. Be. Featured.
No one asks their permission. The art just gets chosen. They don't ask for it. It is given to them.
UNFORTUNATELY. Sometimes the piece that has been chosen is not what some users would consider "Professional Quality". When that happens, I seriously PITY the person who got the DD because they are about to get a shit ton of hate.
Imagine waking up as and realizing you got a DD.
Maybe you're really proud and happy! And then its sort of shit on because some jaded ass hole felt the need to tell you that you DON'T DESERVE IT.
Look. If you think its unworthy, fine. But unless your comment is going to politely offer CONSTRUCTIVE criticism, shut your god damned mouth. &
Ready for the Rainbow Bridge?Why... Just why....?Ready for the Rainbow Bridge?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few past days, I've been dealing with quite traumatic moments with our family dog- battling for his life.
That family dog, named Dingo, is a very special dog for us- that no other dog in whole universe can replace him for us, in meaning of loving another dog in a very special way how we did to him. (Just to be clear, we have only two dogs: Arnaq as my own dog and Dingo as family dog.) I really regret that I never spoke much about him there but only Arnaq was center of attention.
He is our very first dog. We adopted him as a 5 month puppy when I was... 11 years old! I was a mere child and my brother was 9. I was raised with him for entire childhood until adulthood that where I am right now. All animals that are/were with us are treated with the best love and care from us. All are/were important, but Dingo was more than just a pet as family member. More than who Arnaq is for me. He was a big bro fo

I Was Not Ready For This
What did I just sign myself up for?
I had never made, drawn, written, or created a book in my life, so this was all pretty foreign to me. I had told Heavy Metal publishing I'd do it on my own dime. Reason was, this was my project.
Not that I can't cooperate or collaborate, but this time I wanted to create what I saw in my head, and not have a voice behind me telling me what to do and what not to do. Kevin Eastman, head of HM Pub, was incredibly generous in this decision and told me to lead the way, and I tried my damnest.
So I started with the obvious fundamentals. What is the story of LMS?
Now, as a whole, LMS's simple logline is incredibly simple. A man who gets framed for a crime he didn't commit, breaks out of prison and goes after those

1. Take actual cases of art theft a bit more seriously.
This seems to be the one most people are on about and yeah, I get pissed off about someone stealing my stuff but what really gets me is how hard it is to resolve the situation. It shouldn't be that hard to get staff members to remove a stolen piece. More so when it's the original artist reporting it.
It doesn't take a genius to review a situation where the works are side by side and compare if they are indeed stolen or flat

So without further ado- pull up a chair, gather 'round and enjoy this festive treat.
T'was the night before Christmas
And all through the house
Everyone felt shitty
Even the mouse...
With Mum at the Whorehouse
And Dad smoking grass
I'd just settled down
For a nice piece of ass
When all of a sudden
I heard such a clatter
I sprang from my hoe
To see what was the matter
When out on the lawn
I saw a huge prick
I knew straight away
It must be Saint Nick
He came down the Chimney
Like a Bat out of hell
I knew instantly
The fat fucker had fell
He filled all our stockings
With pretzels and Beer
And a big rubber Dick
For my brother, The Queer.
He rose up the Chimney

Since when is mis-gendering someone an insult?
I mean honestly.
So what if someone accidentally calls you a male or female pronoun if you're the opposite. Unless they do it on purpose I don't see a point in getting all pissed off about it.
Save yourself the grief and just deal with it. You're on the internet and chances are 99% of the time people commenting or talking to you/about you won't know you're gender unless you tell them.
Nowadays it seems gender roles are taken SO seriously that it's like criminal if you make a mistake about it. You get your head snapped off at the neck or an army of angry people plaguing you calling you a homophobic dick or some other random gender-hating label.
To be honest I don't care if you call me he, she, him, her, his, hers, lamp, llama, shark, pinto bean, or whatever.
My gender is NOT that important. It's what I am, not who I am and to be honest I
