My bad anatomy...Haters gonna hate. I get that. But there are moments when you have to listen, especially if a theme starts to emerge. Right now I'm noticing that the main criticism - or flat-out derision - I'm getting regarding my art is around my figure drawing. I'm hearing that I don't understand anatomy, and I'm getting a little too frequently compared to a fellow creator who has been roundly and constantly panned for his poor anatomy for too much of the last 20 something years or so.My bad anatomy...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now if there's one thing I really DO know, it's anatomy! I've been kind of low-level obsessed about anatomy since I was a kid. I'm still learning things, but I'm confident that I build on solid foundations that are knowledge based. In short - I don't just make it up!
So what gives?
I was really confused about it for a while, but then it struck me - I'm a product of my age, and my times. I grew up with Neal Adams and John Buscema, then graduated on to the amazing bodily distortions of Richard Corben, before becoming a

I was inspired to create this series by naikki while looking through her gallery of diverse artwork and reading through her journals which are focused on her favorite inspiring writers and thinkers. I felt certain there must be beautiful artwork in the form of portraits and tributes to these writers and their stories. I found most of naikki's choices of quotes to be inclusionary, redeeming and welcoming to any artist on their own path. Instead of just crediting naikki with the inspiration for this new series on depthRADIUS, I also invited her to provide a quote about Herman Hesse of her own to kick off this series.

Here's my reasons why I don't support ACTA.
For a bill that's suppose to prevent piracy, here's what it will do:
Destroy freedom of speech - Especially on the internet.
Under ACTA, the government and the elite will censor what they considered as 'Copywrite Infringement.' By shutting down sites. They will have control over the information and we would be in the dark(The government has been meaning ), this would effect news sites and information sites as well, since they can't spread and/or report. Our blogs and online journals will be censored as well. All of this goes against America's Constitution of Freedom of Speech amendment.
Stifle trade, especially of generic medicines -

Cause the last time I didn't have a sub, the journal was literally featureless. since I want to save the points people donated for giveaways during Christmas (I failed to do one last year because i was in China I had a really limited access to internet at the time), I'm hoping dA still have thumbnails for sub-less people so I can keep doing this even when mine run outWatcher's Feature 2 - the return of the pimp #23 years ago in Art Features More Like This

I got to experience pretty much everything you guys mentioned in the last journal xD though not to such extremes in some cases. Overall everything was ok. China was cool and HK of course is shopping heaven. I'll make a better post later after I sort out all these photos. Most of the pics I took are of weird things... =3=

When I was in Shanghai, this little sparrow (?) flew over and landed near me, so I approached it like I always do when I spot birds, expecting it to fly off when I try to poke it..but it didn't 80! So I picked it up.

Noxx and Bobbin Workshop TOS
Note: Prices outlined here do not include shipping.
These are just guidelines, highly dependent on design complexity and materials required( for example, plushes that require faux fur are more expensive than minky alone, due to the material cost. This can also include accessories I may have to purchase, extra fabric, magnets etc).
The best way to get an accurate price is to send me a note detailing what you're interested in commissioning. Price quotes are through notes only!
Please include references, specifications (such as requested poses, expressions, special materials), AND the size of plush you are interested in, as outlined here.

TC's review of The Lion Guardthough I'm still mostly offline, I managed to catch the premier of TLG and I wanna write a review of what I thought.TC's review of The Lion Guard3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I really liked it, might not be a surprise to some since it takes a lot for me to dislike something. I do have maybe one or two issues with it, but I thought it was a refreshing addition to a dormant series.
Kion was very cute, I like his personality a lot and I look forward to seeing him more, even Bunga was oddly endearing for me. I'm looking forward to seeing all of the guard in the upcoming series.
Though at first seeing Kiara with more sass made me a bit nervous, I actually like the way they made her a little more serious with her job, and she had some pretty good lines as well and I'm excited for the sibling banter between her and her brother. The idea that she teases him probably because she worries that he doesn't take things seriously leads to a lot of possibility. And might I add

Do me, and everyone else a favor.If you are involved in an over-rated, extremely popular fandom, do not talk shit about ANOTHER over-rated, extremely popular fandom.Do me, and everyone else a favor.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you like Kingdom Hearts, do not talk shit about Sonic.
If you like anime, do not talk shit about furries.
"But their fandom is over-rated, and I'm sick of seeing fanart of it!"
...And they, and everyone else, are sick of seeing yours, too.
So instead of sitting around baring your fangs at each other, wouldn't it make more sense to shake hands, and say, "I know what it's like to be hated, I know that feel bro" and be comrades?
...I've felt this way ever since Kingdom Hearts first became popular on here, and the Naruto fans wouldn't shut up about all the KH art on the front page, and the KH fans wouldn't stop whining about how over-popular Naruto was.
There is nothing more hypocritical than to hate on something that is disgustingly over-popular if you are enjoying someth
