Design Contest! CLOSEDHello, everyone! >w< I have another contest for you! ^o^/Design Contest! CLOSED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The contest is design-based, and the theme is Nature's Twins
What is 'Nature's Twins'?
It is a small series that I draw. It consists of a human and animal counterpart bearing similarity in designs/physical traits.
Here are some examples:
(These are merely examples, as mentioned below, you will be expected to design your own human/animal counterparts ^^ )
The goal is to design either a human or animal (or both, if you would like) as part of the Nature's Twins series.
For example, you can draw a person with a unique design and describe what kind of animal you had in mind in the artist's description, or vice versa. If you would like to do both the person and animal, that is more than welcomed!
Please take note that these designs are expected to be fullbody!
The deadline will be set at January 31st!

The enchanted mirror: Loki x Reader 1You were the average girl, average weight of ___ lbs, typical color hair, style, eyes, and the voice of a cat scratch a chalk board. That's what they said, so to put it simbly you were the unpopular girl with no friends; to shy to try anyway. No one wanted to go near you. You had very interesting likes and dislikes for a girl though... You loved marvel universe. The heroes were hilarious and the villains were so predictable. There was only one villain you thought could take over the world and kill the super heroes if he just stopped and tried to think for a minute. In the cartoon, he never had the brains to cause the hero any challenges to make it more difficult for them to win. He is even manipulated by the hero when it should be he who manipulates the hero. In simpler terms LOKI THE GOD OF MISCHIEF, is the one you are most fond of.The enchanted mirror: Loki x Reader 11 year ago in Personal More Like This
You read lewd fanfics of him to sometimes get this aching feeling in between your legs to calm. He is such a sex god, you believe and many other like you

This contest, though, will be like none other that I've had in the past. This time there will be USD and MAILED ITEMS as prizes! (as well as points, artwork, etc)
YES. Since Damien and Joshwa have become so popular in comparison to my other OCs, I figure that a contest specifically for them should be big and exciting.
So first of all, here is what you'll have to do!

That's seriously all I have to do for all of these prizes?"
YES. That is all you have to do LOL it's easy as fuck just join.

3D Movies aren't as crisp as they use to beThis is a realization I had after getting the chance to watch some old school Pixar films in HD recently. While the story of Toy Story holds up well, the actual graphics and presentation look downright archaic in HD. Sometimes characters appear to “float” on the ground, while other times their feet intersect into the floor. Bump mapping textures are grossly pixelated. And I could literally see the wireframe corners of Buzz Lightyear’s mouth clipping into itself.3D Movies aren't as crisp as they use to be5 months ago in Personal More Like This
That being said, one of the positive things I noticed was when I was watching A Bugs Life. The movie just POPPED with so much clarity and crispness. It was so beautiful to look at in HD. And then it hit me... the reason 3D movies don’t look this good, is because they’re not crisp anymore.
See, as technology got better, we learned how to round the edges of characters better. Objects that are square are still slightly rounded on the corners to make them more believable. And we learned to add in rack
Is TMNT flop already? And what can we do about it?Reviews from critics are already coming in for the upcoming Michael Bay produced TMNT movie and... lo-and-behold... they’re pretty shit. Over on Rotten Tomatoes it’s already got a score of 38%.Is TMNT flop already? And what can we do about it?5 months ago in Personal More Like This
One of the prevailing themes of the new movie, apparently, is that everything is predestined. April was predestined to meet the turtles, and the turtles were predestined to become mutants. Everyone is connected to everyone else in ways that are flabbergastingly stupid. So much for random chance creating the turtles... Another theme is that this is more or less April O’ Neil’s movie. Not the ninja turtles. April is the main character. April is the focus of the film. The turtles are there, but they’re side characters in the same way the Autobots were side characters in the Transformers films.
The reason I’m bringing this up here now before the film is even out is because... well... I want it to fail. That’s a little selfish, I know, but I honestly don
Superman Vs Captain America and Nintendo NewsSuperman VS Captain AmericaSuperman Vs Captain America and Nintendo News8 months ago in Personal More Like This
If you haven’t heard yet, Warner Bros has announced that Man of Steel 2 aka Batman Vs Superman (featuring WonderWoman, Cyborg, and other characters from Justice League) will be released on May 6th 2016. AKA... the same day as Marvel’s Captain America 3.
I think I’ve reached a point where I’d rather Warner Bros give up now, since they clearly have no idea what they’re doing and seem grossly disinterested in trying to “build” this DC cinematic universe. I don’t want to see a watered down Justice League film before the actual Justice League movie. And I personally think it’s box office suicide to release it the same day as Captain America 3. Marvel studios is, right now, the BIGGEST film franchise company IN THE WORLD. Topping even Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings. Combined, the Might of Marvel is INSANE... and you’re gonna position your weakest entry (the 2nd film in a franchi

About my TMNT rantGot a long journal head of you. I tried to break it up a bit so you can skim parts.About my TMNT rant5 months ago in Personal More Like This
It appears some people were a little less than happy with the idea that I’m not going to see the new TMNT movie, yet have already formed a negative opinion about it. Some people, who don’t understand what the word means, are calling this “hypocritical” since I often ask that people try to see both sides of an issue, so taking a definitive stance here with (what appears to be to them) incomplete data is wrongheaded of me. So now I gotta write this journal to explain my actions better. Hope you’re happy ‘bout that...
It’s just a movie! Why does it matter?
Because it’s not JUST a movie. Movies do not exist in a vacuum. How well (or bad) a movie does informs YEARS of upcoming movies and careers. Thousands of people’s jobs are dictated on the whim of what the box office rankings are for opening weekend. A now famous example is Guillermo
Randy Queen ApologizesThankfully, Randy Queen has seen the error of his ways and has retracted his threats of legal action against tumblr blog EscherGirls. Today he made a blog post detailing that he wasn’t really in the best frame of mind when he began the process, owing largely to his deteriorating mental stability due to the loss of his mother and his marriage. Which is perfectly understandable, and I sincerely hope that he’s able to work through that and get better.Randy Queen Apologizes5 months ago in Personal More Like This
And I’m also sincerely happy that he was able to see that things were not on his side and to be the better man and admit his mistake too. It really gives me hope going forward, both for myself and for any other artist out there who might find themselves in similar situations.

The State of Web Comics + My Intentions with SYACAbout SYACThe State of Web Comics + My Intentions with SYAC7 months ago in Personal More Like This
One of the reasons I focus so much attention on Marvel and DC is because they’re big companies who should know better. They are made up by hundreds of people all chipping in little bits here and there, and for that there is no excuse for bad artwork, bad writing, or bad material in general. They are, to an extent, a bit of a cheap shot, but everyone can learn from their mistakes and I can offer my opinions about them and what I personally would do differently. And if you’re paying money for their products, I think you deserve good content in return, no?
SYAC is, at it’s core, about how comic artists and the comic industry works and poking fun at the various things they get wrong... and sadly that includes a lot of really hot button topics like Women’s Rights, Sexism, Racism, Homophobia, etc. Comics are no longer their own sheltered little thing... they’ve been THRUST into the mainstream audience and all of these problems we or
Why Paint Missing Children?A little girl I knew was abducted.Why Paint Missing Children?9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I was very affected emotionally, and when I looked around my home town in the following days, I finally noticed all of the little fliers asking for help finding missing children. ( In America there are 1,500 missing child cases open every day. The fliers are often printed on the backs of coupons and are distributed as junk-mail.)
I just began saving the fliers, and after a year had a drawer full of them: Disposable mailers with tiny monochrome photos of missing children. It didn't seem right that these faces were so small and bland.
One night, out of nowhere, I was inspired to paint a full color portrait from one of the cards. As an artist, the question was this: How does a person paint a portrait of a missing child? I could not just approach it like an illustration. I could not just go about it as if it were a polite painting.
I began by putting away my brushes. They were too smooth. Too pretty. Too controllable. Instead, I began using palette knives
