Regarding unemployment / Freelance *UPDATED*From the polycount discussion over here: http://www.polycount.com/forum/showthread.php?t=113798Regarding unemployment / Freelance *UPDATED*2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get the sense that some HR people (& immigration) look at 'not working inhouse' as being unemployed - mainly because it's so hard to prove exactly how long you were *actually* working on freelance.
If I was to look at it that way, then I've been unemployed for periods of up to 3 years.
I got over worrying about money and financial problems back when I had little to no money to worry about - and I think that's helped me to no end. Life seemed to be stuck on replay when I was in that frame of mind i.e. creating stuff because I HAD to get a job. Years would go by, and it never ever worked out for me, somehow I'd always end up in exactly the same place until I put in the time to find something I enjoyed, and simply worked at that no matter where it took me.
I have friends on my list who have been without a job or freelance work for ages, but they are also the same guys who don't have

http://fav.me/d534voe Updated journal on the contest. Midnight tonight pacific coast time, start wrapping them up if you want in.
I joined Deviant Art I few years back bright eyed and hopeful. I tried to show case some talent I felt I had and over a period gained a handful of friends. Like most folks in the last several years the hard times came and with that I slowly faded away from this friendly art community. With some help from friends we reopen DreamOrchid's doors with a new website (www.dreamorchid.com), official DreamOrchid face book page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/DreamOrchid/189645937780364), and even a twitter account.

SCI-FI AND SPACE ART DD ROUND UP - OCTOBER 2013Hello again guys!! Hope you had a frightful halloween. It's my second month as a CV on dA here and I really came across many stunning works. I do really try to vary the Sci-fi flavors in this gallery and I really thank all the suggestors and artists for making such various things in this genre.SCI-FI AND SPACE ART DD ROUND UP - OCTOBER 20132 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Here is a DD Roundup below for those who missed them. I'm actually very very busy these days as I'm working on an upcoming expo of my art in my city and it's a lot of organisation, printing, organizing, invitation and all. This is a very important moment for me with big reception, probably the mayor and all... incredible time to come I guess. I do my best to stay tuned and take every DD suggestion into consideration. Feel free to drop me a note for anything else, help, comments, advice or else.
Thank you all for your help and support.
ENJOY these brilliant DDs again.

Few tips to improve your OC?Uhm well I want to start with this first:Few tips to improve your OC?4 months ago in Personal More Like This
- originality is something that stopped to exist years ago, because no matter what you come up with, whether a story or a brilliant OC, there will be always someone who came up with that idea before you did or after you did but you never had the chance to introduce it before, so instead of rewritting parts and redesigning your works multiple times and getting hella frustrated over it, just try to make it a bit more unique than striving for hardcore pure originality.
- what I am about to write can be taken as helpful guidelines in case you get stuck with something. Most tutorials/tips are being offensive like YOU DO IT LIKE THIS AND IN NO OTHER WAY as if it were a freaking law or something, which I think it's bullshit. We won't want to be a mass produced copycat artist, right? Use the tips modyfying them to your own taste, skill and idea. Everything goes.
- use these ideas at will. I will most likely drop here too whenever I need an idea

The new Star Wars teaser has me bouncing up and down in my chair with glee. I’ve watched it a dozen times and I cannot wait until I get the chance to see it on the big screen, but there is one teeny, tiny thing that just rubs me the wrong way. It’s a really stupid thing, too. Something that, when I tell you what it is, many are going to ask why it’s worth getting in a twist over.
That stupid lightsabre.
And it IS stupid. It’s a really, really bad weapon design and people are going to be taking the piss out of it for years to come, I’m sure.
Ever since Darth Maul showed up with his two-bladed sabre (I believe it was called “The Compensator”) a new sabre gimmick has been required with each further expansion of the mythology. We’ve had purple sabres, Ventress had her twin sabres, Grievous did his Cuisinart-thing, etc, etc.

I’m rather irked that anyone would think that, after all this time, I would actually plagiarise anything. Parody for the sake of comedy, sure, but not flat-out copy.
Let me tell you what I know: the creative process grants you access to infinite possibilities. As such, I have never, ever felt the need to copy someone’s work. If I am aware of something that exists, I veer away from it. Partly because it would just feel wrong to steal someone else’s ideas, but mostly because….it’s boring! I get a kick out of devising new things. It’s one of the most enjoyable and satisfying endeavours you can pursue.

Some of you might remember the old days on conceptart.org when everyone would post all the things they drew every day and kick each other's butt and give critique and get motivated over seeing how much everyone around you would be improving. For the last years, there hasn't really been a place to get that kind of motivation any more.
I made a small forum to rekindle that kind of helpful atmosphere. It's a really small community, just for posting practice work and getting critique from others. A bunch of great people are already there posting their daily stuff and kicking each other's butt. Obviously I'm there too, updat

:0 :0 ;0
It especially means a lot since I owe so much to DeviantArt. I can sincerely say I owe my career to this website, its thanks to them I've had job offers who led to me working in the video game industry at a pretty young age, thanks to them I've gotten magazines to notice me and commission workshops, thanks to them I was able to find smaller gigs early on and so much more. I've met awesome people here, constantly find new inspirations and best of all, am able to share with others my passion for art.
My life would be quite different without DeviantArt.
SO, A MASSIVE THANK YOU!

Fall of the Union?On the 18th of September, Scotland may break from the UK.Fall of the Union?8 months ago in Personal More Like This
As a resident of these isles, I can tell you that the general atmosphere surrounding the vote is a bit…..”meh”.
This is kind of alarming. It’s a big f**king deal for both sides of the border and people should be paying a little more attention, especially up in Scotland, since it’s they who will determine what transpires.
My opinion on the matter is that unity brings strength, but people have a right to decide their own future and if the Scots feel they’re better off going solo then they should vote “Yes”.
However, I feel that those behind the calls for independence (the same people who will hold power with a “yes” vote) are playing on an opportunity presented to them by the economic downturn between 2008 and now. It’s made their sales pitch much more enticing to those whose finances were shaken over the last 6 years by evil forces in London (naturally, they don
Change for the sake of change.Well…..that was immature drivel.Change for the sake of change.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I don’t know a huge amount about the “New 52” take on the DC universe (I stopped paying attention to DC’s output when they changed their logo to look like a half-unwrapped Acme magnet) but if the Justice League: War animation is any kind of summary, I’m glad I’ve not wasted my time.
Batman now seems to think it’s impolite if he doesn’t tell everyone who he is, Wonder Woman has taken to talking like a really, really bad Shakespearean actor and Superman is a dick.
Ignoring the animation’s terrible narrative, what struck me like a rancid kipper in the face was how god-awful the character designs were. In this instance; particularly Darkseid’s. Yeah, he wore a bucket on his head in the past, but it worked! It added to his menace as a laser-firing brick of doom. You took one look at him and you knew who he was.
Watch Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. THAT version of Darkseid is an ic
Thank you for your pendant feedback!Thank you to everyone who participated in the poll and left me comments.Thank you for your pendant feedback!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am very optimistic about the pendant idea now!
I know a large majority of you voted for dragon/phoenix design, but it may not be the design I will go for first. Personally I wanted to do stag/wolf, and I'm glad it was 2nd highly voted one. Unicorn/griffin is another one I'd like to do.
I guess if the response is good, I'll eventually do a set : stag/wolf, unicorn/griffin, dragon/phoenix.
It'll be rather similar to my coins; there will be a variety of color variants.
In any case, it will be a few months down the road before these pendants ever see the light of day as I have 1 new coin design on the way and they'll be sold first.
Thank you again!

On a side note, it's usually a good idea to keep your art and speech balloons on separate layers, in case some day someone desires to do this sort of thing. I inexplicably flattened a lot of my older stuff in this way, so that's why the speech balloons persist in this video. BAD ARTIST! BAD!
