Fiction.How redundant is it pointing out these following statements?Fiction.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's no such thing as a gigantic mechanical robot fighting off alien monsters. There has never been a report of a man being bitten by a radioactive spider and becoming a hero. You can't summon a mini-tornado at your own beck-n-call, don't matter how much into the occult you are. The odds of a young male teenager having a harem of sexy girls at his every turn is nil. There aren't bipeds of animals that are supposed to be quadrupeds flying spaceships in the galaxy above us. You can't legally hunt and catch thousands of different animals and use them to protect you from other animals and people in a sports-like venue. You can't eat a flower and ignite fire from your hands.
I can go on and on... this journal is probably being expressed because of recent built-up distaste for people bullying others because of what they like when it comes to fiction.
Just to reestablish what it even means, here it is, straight
I hope I never become like this. [rant]Seems like the more popular an artist gets, the more snobby and irritable they become. I've known more than a couple artist ever since they had almost no followers, and they used to seem so much nicer and you could actually have conversations with them. As soon as they get a few thousand followers they become bitter, jaded artists.I hope I never become like this. [rant]9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I understand if you want to be little miss serious business from now on, but don't go hiding comments and then claim I said something mean or rude or w/e. Use someone else as your "example."
I don't understand how someone can make such beautiful art, yet have such an ugly personality.
I'm not going to mention any names, I just needed to get that off my chest.
IS ART SCHOOL BAD?? 0_OBTW THIS IS LONG ASS POST , BUT ENCOURAGE YOU TO READ THIS IS IF YOU ARE A PERSON CONSIDERING ART FOR A CAREERIS ART SCHOOL BAD?? 0_O2 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: I ADDED NUMBER 3 IN CAUSE THAT WAS KIND OF AN IMPORTANT LESSON TOO. HAHA
Usually I am pretty quiet when it comes to the community and its dealings with drama . But I feel like I have to write my two cents about this topic.
A lot of people have been throwing around this post around about how art schools are terrible and are not worth it ya. I am sure you can find the article somewhere if you just google it . Though everyone is entitled to their own opinion I feel that I should talk about both sides of the coin when it comes to art school.
Now I have went to art school , and have done well for myself , I have worked internationally and worked for some big companies , and currently at the moment I actually teach at an art school as well.
SO THE ULTIMATE QUESTION: IS ART SCHOOL A WASTE OF TIME?
WELL THERE IS NO BLACK AND WHITE ANSWER
What I believe is that art school i
The Three problems with how we learn art: pt.2 I've been thinking about how and why we learn to draw for a few years now. I started self-analazing my own drawing and character design thought process when I began writing my first art instruction book, "Creating Characters with Personality". It was harder than I thought to verbalize how I've learned and how I process drawing. This has led me to start looking back at my artistic life and how I learned art. What made me learn the most? What drove me to draw and stick with it? What led to others I knew as a child to stop drawing? I think I'm ready to present some of those thoughts here on DA and hear what you think. This is part 2 of three in a series. I'm not sure where this is leading, but step one is my establishing an online art instruction school called Taught ByA PRO (http://taughtbyapro.com) that will (in phase one) concentrate on drawing instruction for all forms of media.

NEW Work-around to Art Academy's small filesAre you tired of being constricted to the measly 800 x 450px size of Art Academy? Are you tired of inspecting the element of Miiverse JUST to get your artwork into your computer? Well, you're in LUCK. There's an app for that!NEW Work-around to Art Academy's small files1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. Open Art Academy on Miiverse.
2. Open your artwork, as if you were gonna paint it some more.
3. Open the Wii U menu, and go into the browser.
4. Open your email and send yo'self a file attachment! You can attach what's on the screen at the moment, which will be Art Academy's artwork. A nice 1240 x 700 jpeg file will be sent to your email!
5. Be happy.
Props to user Holly for having figured this out in Imgur and spreading the word. Miiverse artists deserve to have a full sized artwork, even if it isn't as big as it can be.
Try it out, and comment your results.
(Some editing MAY be required, depending on what TV you have. Results may vary).
EDIT: Ok, so. A few weeks ago I had a theory about Art Academy's real resolution: The size you see on the gamepad is

The above photo was linked to from this article that I read a few weeks ago. I really don't want to make my Journal into a political soapbox, but this has been bugging me nonstop for weeks and I feel I have to say something.
I like this dude. I really do, I like that he's taking a stand for what he thinks is right, but...that little sign isn't sending the message Guy was going for :I
This may just be my interpretation, but...when I first read that sign, it gave me the impression of "it takes a strong woman to tell us men what to do". Unbeknownst to Guy, he's putting down half the world's population, by making the claim that they don't, and possibly can't, know any better, unless guided by a strong woman who does. Circumstantial evidence tells me Guy is fighting for the caus

On The Giving of ThanksThanksgiving is my favorite holiday. To our modern understanding and sensibilities it can be hard to reconcile the historical record with what the day is supposed to represent. When I was growing up, making hand-shaped turkeys in school, it was easy to buy into the feel-good story of European settlers and native people sitting down together for a communal feast. Maybe it happened, it probably didn't, but what came later- disease, one-sided war, cruelty and inhumanity- of that we have no illusions. Not anymore.On The Giving of Thanks1 year ago in Personal More Like This
But as our understanding and acceptance of the historical context has changed, the holiday itself has taken on its own meaning, tradition, and sensibilities. Truthfully, we don't need pilgrims and falsehoods in order to have Thanksgiving. Family, fidelity, togetherness and-yes- even thankfulness are reason enough.

DC and Marvel are Both Wrong...... or so "implied" a speech from Image publisher, Eric Stephenson the other day.DC and Marvel are Both Wrong...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Stephenson intended on making a simple statement to comic retailers about the current form of the comic industry as compared to what it once was, in order to push into the future with good quality product. He ended up scathing on a wonderful monologue that was very thorough, very honest and very, sadly, true. In this, he wound up pointing out how Marvel and DC comics have been implementing destructive tactics for years now, not really bringing in new readers and only serving their year's-end bottom line rather than the long-term quality.
His speech touched the hearts of many a complaining comic book fan, most of whom have left both of the Big Two for either Image comics or Indie comics. T
