Just because you shot it in the street...PE: JUST BECAUSE YOU SHOT IT IN THE STREET IT DOESN'T MAKE IT "STREET PHOTOGRAPHY"Just because you shot it in the street...2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Street Photography is a largely misunderstood and misinterpreted photography genre.
Browsing dA's Street Gallery I'd say that people are under the impression that street photography is photography of:
1 street signs
2 side-walk close-ups
3 love padlocks
4 shoes (All Stars preferably)/photographer's feet
5 graffiti/tags/street art/cool vandalism
6 empty roads
9 abandoned buildings/urband decay/trash
10 cool cars
11 cosplayers posing in fairs
12 family in family-trips, friends in cool poses
13 sexy models in subways/women wrestling in swimming suit (don't ask, I don't know)
14 lights bokeh
15 light paintings
So, let's try to kill the most common misunderstandings:
Street photography is not photography of (empty) streets and it is not necessarily a photo taken in a street.
Street photography most definitely is not photography of your All Stars shoes in the st

How DC contacts work... By Mark WaidIf you're working for a publisher and wondering how the payments work then this by Mark Waid is pretty good --> http://thrillbent.com/blog/how-dc-contracts-work/How DC contacts work... By Mark Waid2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Basically what it boils down to though is that things are paid pretty much as a work for hire which means you get paid a once off flat rate, and then whoever paid you can do whatever they like with the final picture and not owe you a cent extra. Only if you're very good at negotiating contracts, and remember you're up against some of the best in the business with Marvel etc, or have such clout and "cred" in the industry, that you can cut your own deal. Which probably also means your name is Stan Lee...
This sort of deal ranges from a private one off pinup you do for John Doe to the big leagues such as DC and Marvel. Personally I'm fine with it as I get the money and then get a personal kick about seeing the final product in print. I usually ask if I can ge

My Thoughts on Tropes vs Women...Honesty time guys. I've had a lot of people ask me my opinion of Anita Sarkeesian and Tropes vs Women. What I may have to say may not make some people happy, in fact, it might just piss you right off. But I respect my audience enough to be fully candid with them as I am similar to her when it comes to real matters and how they effect gaming and gamers.My Thoughts on Tropes vs Women...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
At best, I am indifferent with her. Don't get me wrong, I think her research is good, but a few things bother me. One is I just don't like her presentation. It's dry and really matter of fact, which to me is just plain boring. The information is good, but it's just hard for me to sit through. And yes I know that she is working on a book, or other scholarly work, and to do such, well you can't always be wacky. It just didn't pull me in. The other thing is she doesn't allow for comments.

Burn Bright!Okay, I woke up this morning and started playing all the My Chemical Romance songs in order once again. Still pretty sad, still with the American Widow memorialized on my arm, and still in the My Chem Hangman's shirts I bought yesterday, unaware. But then I started to hear the music.Burn Bright!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And you know what? You can't hear the music, the message, when you're crying. Know what the first thing I really heard was?
Stop your crying, helpless feeling
Dry your eyes and start believing
There's one thing they'll never take from you
So I put on a lot of eye makeup to deter tears, and made a bagel.
Cuz you know what they can't take away from me, from all of us killjoys, those in the MCRmy? All the beautiful messages MCR has relayed over the years, all the lives they've saved, all the beautiful things they've made us feel, and they can't take away the music that made such things happen. It's still here, and we can still love it.

2011 Europe tripThis took forever but I'm finally getting down to blogging about it! I've been looking for someone to tour Europe with, but unfortunately schedules are hard to match and money doesn't come by easy. Been wanting to visit Europe for the longest time, and last year I thought, if I don't go now, I may never have the chance to go. So I made up my mind to recce on my own, and in two weeks I was off on a plane! I didn't plan to go overseas for my graduation trip, so I shall reflect and relive last year in place of that XD2011 Europe trip3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thoughts like "what the heck am I doing" did occur to me on the plane, but they were quickly taken over by the fear and excitement of exploring unknown lands 8D Since I was flying alone, next to me sat a Chinese lady who was working in Rome. We got to know each other a little better over the 13-hour flight, and she very kindly offered to drive me from the airport to my hostel ;v; I'm forever grateful towards her, as she made me feel safe and comfortable from the very start o

>How did you get into pony sculpting?
:iconubrosis: I wanted to make something pony, but I can't draw to save my life, I'm rather tone-deaf and generally bad at everything. So I had the options to try make a plushie, carve something out of wood or sculpt something.
I already had what I needed to sculpt, so I started on my Pinkie Pie. Four months later, I had a Pinkie and a Fluttershy ready... not the prettiest sculptures but it's something.

Fear of Blank Canvas.I've been painting since I was quite young.Fear of Blank Canvas.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But still, I am overwhelmed and intimidated once I am facing the vast 'whiteness' of a blank canvas.
Like Goliath to little David, the empty space challenges me and I recoil.
I think being a good painter is nothing other than to overcome this fear of blank canvas.
Just like Van Gogh said,
a good painter never fears the canvas;
The canvas fears him.
:|I'm just really tired of all the kids on here when it comes to auctions and selling/buying.:|2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But what was I expecting from here anyway.
I mean... You don't just go around bidding very high on things as a JOKE.
And then be all like "omg it was a joke I was not expecting to win I can't pay I only have 2 points".
It screws up the whole bidding, making it inaccurate for the other bidders. And it's also TERRIBLY annoying for the seller, having to let things go for much lower bids after.
And two other things while I'm here:
Don't tell people their prices are too expensive.
Don't tell people to not buy things because it's not worth it.
Man, I'm tired of this.
And now don't tell me to sell things on FA instead, I'm trying. But I'm still new on there and it's very hard to sell things, it's just not worth it for me at the moment.

Anyways, Here's my column i sent to the NS blog last year which was copied to different websites today...
1. "Itachi" means "weasel". In Japanese superstition and belief, the weasel is a symbol of bad luck and something that would bring misfortune. What the hell were his parents thinking?? Giving him a name like that?
2. Bakudan is Deidara's favorite food that's funny because Bakudan is a homonym for bomb/explosion
3. Konan's wearing a pretty sexy gettup under that Akatsuki cloak. It's kinda like Karin's outfit, except strapless, and partially reveals her outter bossom. She's got a pierced belly buttom (That's too bad! konan was killed by madara T_T)
