Llama addiction + features + plugin!Hi there, fellas!Llama addiction + features + plugin!2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Since I've got 99 llamas (but a b**ch ain't one) in the last week, I've decided something too cool for the llama addicted.
Next week I'll write a journal featuring everybody who llama'd me this week (or until I get crazy).
So, who wants to join the party?
Round one, featuring:

There really isn't a clear premise yet, so I'm looking to work with you, the great people of Deviantart to come up with some great ideas for the story of the series!

Since everyone else is doing it (wannabe rant)Since is seems quite a few people are getting this out there I figured I'd throw this up here as well. I don't intend for this to be a rant or anything.

So... kind of a FAQ and kind of not.
Firstly: Please stop saying things like "All you popular artists are the same" or "I'm not popular enough to be your friend".
It's fucking annoying because not only does it sound like a pity trip it makes me feel bad for somehow gaining some stupid numbers. I don't know about you but I don't base who I like and who I don't on how popular they are. My 'recognition' on dA does nothing for me in the real world so it's not like I've magically gained celebrity status.
The reason I don't make a lot of friends is because I have issues with people and being used by them. It's nothing personal again
BlackFish...Okay, so the documentary 'Blackfish' is now available on the internet to download, so I finally got to see it.BlackFish...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First and foremost, I would like to inform everyone who watches it that it is an extremely biased and one sided documentary. It is created in such a way that by the end of it you have no other option but to think Captivity is super bad and the worst thing ever. People who already believe this will say, "OH NO IT ISN'T BIASED IT JUST STATES THE FACTS". Those people are pretty brainwashed. It DOES state facts for sure, but that's not to say you can't slant any fact you want to make people believe a certain thing or think a certain way. And that's exactly what this documentary does.
I have already made my own opinion about captivity. It is an INFORMED decision, because I can tell you, not one thing in this documentary was new to me. Most people watch it and are like "ARH MY GAWDD I SO SHOCKED BY WHAT I SAW", then I will say you have not bothered to educate yourself on the situati
So You Want to Work in Animation/Vfx?Watch this: http://youtu.be/9lcB9u-9mVESo You Want to Work in Animation/Vfx?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The documentary is about vfx more so than feature animation, but the reality is if you want to work in the film side of this indutry you will be doing vfx at some point since there are only a handful of studios which produce feature animation. So thinking "I'll be safe by just working in animation" is unrealistic. Everyone who is considering entering this industry needs to be aware of the things that are going on. I love my job and can't see myself doing anything else, but it's very important to realize that it's definitely not all sunshine and rainbows. The stress and hardship of having to move (often across states, provinces, and/or countries) is real. On one hand, its an adventure to get to travel so much. But on the other, it's very expensive and is quite counter productive to having a life of your own outside of work as far as having a house, finding a partner, etc goes. Hopefully some kind of change for the better will happen in the not too
'mai origunal speecies -- donut steel'Alright... so I've been seeing some stuff around here and Tumblr talking about original species and adoptables.'mai origunal speecies -- donut steel'7 months ago in Personal More Like This
From the title it would appear as if I'm being patronizing, and maybe in some way I am... Perhaps it's because after all the years of trying to stop people from stealing my 'ideas' I've come to understand something about all of this.
Maybe... I just think all this screaming, hooting, and hollering about 'she stole my bread-wolves!' or 'he stole my flaming hyena idea!!!' is just... ugh.
While I'm all for the concept of inventing a species and wanting to keep tabs on it, there is a limit as to how far your 'tabs' can go.
For instance -- If you're 'original species' is a genetically enhanced wolf of sorts (if it's looks like a neon wolf more or less) it's not that original. If it looks anything like a wolf, it's not that original.
Saying 'this is an original species; don't use!' and it's just a wolf with a long ta

It's that time again! What time is it? ADVEEEEN-NOWAIT. FREE REQUESTS TIME! : D I had so much fun last time, that I finally have another off day and wanna do it again.
I will be doing free requests of canine characters(dogs, wolves, etc.), as I can draw them faster than other creatures. Sorry, no anthros neither. D: They take lots more attention and I wanna make your characters look decent. <3 To request, simply post a link to your charcter's ref sheet, bio, image, etc. Do not post requests on this journal, as I'll only listen to peeps in the livestream chat and won't be checking back here. Only one canine per person.
I will take a max of 3-4 requests at a time, but we'll see how much I can handle for now. :3

"I still hear the screams, I still smell the blood. I can still taste the dust on my lips. Every time I close my eyes, my heart leaps into my throat when I see that missing wall, the dust billowing out. I still feel my throat going raw as I scream for the two that we knew were underneath the rubble. I still feel his swollen, bloody hand in mine as he fights to live...."
Sometimes I hurt the ones that I love the most, even though they're the ones that I need the most...because there's so much pain and anger and hurt going on inside of my head and my heart that I just don't know what to do with it. I feel like there's no way to say that I'm sorry enough.

People wanting art for free - RantIt’s rant time again. Yay. I know I’ve talked about this topic in the past already but it’s still current for many artists, and I’d like to go into it a little further. That question which pretty much every artist knows only too well.People wanting art for free - Rant9 months ago in Personal More Like This
“Can you draw something for me? But I don’t have money.”
No matter how obvious you make it that you’re a professional artist, how eye-catching the commission pricelist on your user page is or how many “I don’t do requests / art-trades”-stamps you plaster all over your journal, people either don’t notice or simply don’t care. And their ways to persuade you to give them what they want get more creative and bold.
Classic approach :
A few sentences of praise and how much they adore your artwork and how much they’d love to have a picture from you. Sometimes they also mention that they don’t have money, which means they are aware of the

I'm pretty sure this is going to be a rant (not that I have ever posted those before ) but bear with me because I just... I got to say something about this subject.
"You have a lot of talent and you waste it on drawing stupid dogs!"
"Don't you understand that series is for CHILDREN? You're too old!"
"If you want people to take your work seriously, stop drawing stupid animals!"
"All you draw is cats. Can't you draw anything else? I'm so done with your unoriginal bullshit art."
"Wolves, wolves, wolves. All you ever draw is wolves! BORING!"
"Are we ever going to see anything but shitty cartoon dogs from you?"
I'm sure all of us at some point in our artistic lives have dealt with someone who decided it was a good idea to rag on your choice of artwork subject matter. If not yet, you will... trust me. We ALL go through it.
It's hard enough to deal with it from strangers but it's another thing when it comes from people you know. Family, friends,

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way, no rigid process you must adhere to, no shoulds or shouldn'ts except those you designate for yourself. This is one of the fun parts of being an artist, really - have a heady good time with it.
