What The Crap Is Even Furry?I think sometimes it gets confusing when we're discussing "furry" because the word covers several different definitions and literally nobody wants to be left out of including their Doom cyberdemon fancharacter and who are you to judge, anyhow?What The Crap Is Even Furry?4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Being an english major with an interest in linguistics, I find this is simultaneously a boon--as the lack of solid definitions for any of these prevents people from being shoved out the door for failing to meet that definition . . . but at the same time, it causes an enormous amount of confusion when we're talking past each other saying two (or fourteen) entirely different things with the same word.
Furry as it is used commonly means:
1 - The furry fandom in general. What this necessarily encompasses is hard to pin down; to some people you have to actually accept yourself as part of the fandom, but it's also possible to be a big fat geek about it and clearly be in denial of whether or not you are
The Making of YOSHINARI'S LITTLE WITCH ACADEMIAFor all aspiring artists/ students who whish to work in 2D animation production, and those already in 2D animation who know little to nothing about actual 2D animation production, here is but a glimpse of what it's like. This is also a pretty brilliant program enacted by Japanese grants to nurture the talent pool for the new generation. Watch director Yoh Yoshinari (gurren Lagaan, Evangelion, FLCL) train 5 young animators at his newly founded animation company STUDIO TRIGGER (KIll LA KILL), as he guides them through the process of helping him create the first episode of the wildly popular Little Witch Academia OVA. Inspiring stuff and a true peek behind the curtain of what it's like for young artists/creatives/animators who work under a giant like Yoshinari.The Making of YOSHINARI'S LITTLE WITCH ACADEMIA5 months ago in Personal More Like This

Here's about three quarters of the amazing front cover. Leave me alone, I'm not a photographist.
The company I went through charged $23 to have it printed, but now I see why, because it's quite big and of really insane quality. Each page is like, really thick and the colours came out super great.
I got to choose the dates that I wanted on it but I went a bit crazy so it has lots of dates for lots of countries.
Now I can always have an inspirational Rowan picture to look at if I ever feel my vital manliness waning. And by 'always' I guess I mean 'during September 2014.' Before or after that, my manliness is a lost cause.
I was kinda forced to add a themed border, but it works pretty well, even for the very light toned pages.
But yeah anyway, I was really happy with how it came out and making this was a fun excuse to draw all the characters interacting. It was interesting thinking up all the

Something else I feel that I need to mention in order to contextualize my journal better is that, I did not intend for the list to contain every exhaustive permutation of subcategories for anything I mentioned. Point 4 by itself (common furry style) contains all sorts of variations on anatomy etc--the thing is, with each definition, what it means is that when someone says "furry" they don't MEAN to drill down to an exact picture in their head (This is not the Furry Code after all).
But, nonetheless they usually mean something when they use the word, especially when they use it to exclude other things. Let me give a few examples. (These are all paraphrases of things I've read on the internet at one point or another)

The Future of Media- MusingsAwhile back, someone interviewed me for a business class. I thought a couple of the questions dug up some hot air worth blowing around, so here it is!The Future of Media- Musings1 year ago in Personal More Like This
QUESTION: In your opinion is small businesses, including physical and online stores, growing? Also do you think they will ever grow to the point where they are a bigger and more influential part of the economy than big businesses?
That's an interesting question- since I mostly just make a comic, my insight is limited. I haven't a clue pertaining to business as a whole. Regarding entertainment media, things are moving in two starkly different directions right now, and it fascinates me.
Corporate media conglomerates continue cannibalizing one another, growing fewer and bigger, into titanic monoliths. Think Time Warner- or as a recent example, look at how Disney has assimilated both Marvel and Star Wars. All those properties are now the domain of one massive corporation. It's unprecede

An introduction to procedural geometry
What and why?
Procedural geometry is geometry modelled in code. Instead of building 3D meshes by hand using art software such as Maya, 3DS Max or Blender, the mesh is built using programmed instructions.
This can be done at runtime (the mesh does not exist until the end-user runs the program), at edit time (using script or tool when the application is being developed), or inside a 3D art package (using a scripting language such as MEL or MaxScript).
Benefits of generating meshes procedurally include:
Variation: Meshes can be built with random variations, meaning you can avoid repeating geometry.
Scalability: Meshes can be generated with more or less detail depending on the end-user's machine or preferences.
Control: Game/level designers with little knowledge of 3D modelling software can have more control over the appe

Influence on my art
You can't pass 10 years on a place dedicated to art and creation without being influenced by the work and the people you see. I joint deviantart to have a place to show my work and receive some feedback, but I was not expecting to discover so much...
I've really started art with traditional drawing, I can date the real start at the year 1993, I've moved from sketches to drawing on larger size with an idea to tell a story in the drawing. My gallery has some traces of this early period. The evolution in traditional art with DA is quite limited to a move from graphite to pencil and also the use of colour paper. My experiences with painting are too limited to really speak of an evolution.
The present place where I live does not have enough room for traditional art, this is the main reason why I no

Well, this will be a big one because I have had a considerably monumental last month or so. I'll keep the journal as short as I can, and indeed I don't have any wedding pictures yet so it will be lacking in that department for a bit.
