Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.Hi everyone! It's been awhile. This post is a little important so I have a feeling im going to be making it a little long... Also, I'm doing it from my phone. So, there may be weird typos.Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you don't wanna read the whole thing here's a basic summary:
I left DA because of Internet hate which brought down my confidence; I got a lot of hate the same day I found out my grandfather died which really made it worse, I planned on coming back the beginning of January but I was hospitalized because of a bowel obstruction and I am still currently in the hospital and plan to come back mid February. Also I feel like shit.
Long version: I guess I'll start... With why I left. It's a really complex reason and I really hope everyone will understand, but I think there might be some people who just won't. And by that I mean, I am aware I have a handfull of followers who might feel neutral about my art rather than full out liking it. Or maybe I'm just talking about the people who don't really like my ar
How I cosplayed the cast of Free! sort-of-tutorialGroup cosplay, forever alone style! Yeah, that's all me.How I cosplayed the cast of Free! sort-of-tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In this post, I'll get into how I did each one!
Intro, and some bad old pictures
For those of you who have the patience to read for some extra info!
When I started cosplaying, I didn't think makeup was such a major part of it. I was so hesitant to even put eyeliner because I'd think, "This character is a guy, I shouldn't look like I'm wearing makeup!" And I guess I was silly enough to think I looked enough like the characters I chose without doing anything to my face?
I can't find more pictures of my really old cosplays (which is just as well, hahah) from the time I didn't want to use makeup apart from these:
I cosplayed as Haku from Naruto. I don't remember wearing any makeup for this. It doesn't show too well on these pictures but I saw some others where the natural redness of my lips made it look like I was wearing lipstick even if I wasn't. I felt it made me look more feminine than I should. Haku is still a guy after al

You are a bad personMaking mistakes or bad decisions does not make you a bad person. A bad person is someone who do them but never owns up to them.You are a bad person2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We all make mistakes, we all make bad decisions, whether because of our emotions or our situations. Everyone has problems, and nobody's perfect. We all got things to learn and we learn them all differently.
But you never owned up to what you did. You never gave your due apologies.
You keep giving excuses like "I didn't know better", "I wasn't feeling well" or even "it wasn't that bad".
You keep turning the tables by justifying your deed as a form of "punishment", a "lesson", a "necessity" or because you "had no choice".
You only pity yourself by expressing self loathe and self regret. You speak so greatly about the pain and disappointment you feel, yet you fail to share that felt by the others because of your deed.
You half-ass your responsibility to redeem yourself from this by doing unrelated good deeds and sending materialisti

The right Manga Anatomy-Does this exist?People often say: "Your anatomy isn't right."The right Manga Anatomy-Does this exist?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I admit, anatomy IS difficult. But there are so many styles like more chibi or more realistic and so the proportions of the body changes.
I would answer this question with a yes and a no.
Yes, because if the character you draw has 4 fingers, it's wrong. Or the figure can sprain their body unnaturally so that just looking hurts. Then it's really wrong.
You have to understand the basics of anatomy.
But isn't it a matter of the artist's style how realistic the proportions have to be?
I think CLAMP's characters in "Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle" have way too long bodies and limbs or the characters in "Pokemon", they are all without muscles and without body fat.
And not to mention the female chest... From not visible to fat balls.
As you can see there is artistic freedom till a certain limit.
It's up to the artist's taste.
The difference between a mistake and style is: knowing how it actually has to look like.
What do you think about i

Tropes Vs Women in Video Games: Part 1Tropes Vs Women in Video Games: Part 1 Damsels in DistressTropes Vs Women in Video Games: Part 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anita Sarkeesian's first video in the much ballyhooed Tropes Vs Women in Video Games has finally been released. The verdict? Acceptable. There's really nothing that offensive in the video at all, as it's mostly just a history of the "Damsels in Distress" trope and how it's used in video games. It's fact based and fairly interesting to watch.
The only two criticisms I have are as follows:
1. As someone who's done a LOT of research into the making of Donkey Kong (primarily for the short Flossed In Time storyline that I illustrated for Brent and Dan http://www.brentalflossthecomic.com/fit/?id=1 ), I can say without question that her info about how Popeye came to be turned into Donkey Kong is wrong.
Donkey Kong came about because Nintendo of America's president Minoru Arakawa placed a large order for Radar Scope, a popular Japanese game). By the time the game arrived in New York, months had passed and in

I'm sure most of you have known the Mention feature introduced by dA recently (if you don't know about it you can read it here: http://wreckling.deviantart.com/journal/Deviant-and-Art-Mentions-403346447 )
Because I didn't read the article thoroughly, I initially thought that the Mention will work only if somebody uses the @ symbol in front of a username. But then it's occurred to me that it will work if you're using :dev[insertusernamehere]: or the icon of the user.
So as a person who uses A HELL LOAD of plz icons and also the owner of the account :iconpervyerenplz:, I find it quite amusing and funny when I logged in to that plz account hahahahahaa :iconmingteatimeplz:

Sorry Mario BrosSorry Mario BrosSorry Mario Bros2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Say what you will about Anita Sarkeesian, you gotta admit that people do take note of what she says for good or ill. In this piece of news, it's for the good.
As you might already know, in her latest video she outlined a simple "damsel frees herself" video game. Nothing too spectacular but it showcased how one can subvert the typical trope and make a strong female character out of it. While many were quick to criticize her for not making the game herself (given her kickstarter success), others took a more direct approach and actually made a game in 2 weeks.
The game is called "Sorry Mario Bros," and the plot is that Princess Peach decides to rescues herself by leaving Bowser's castle in world 8-4. You progress right to left through familiar, but slightly altered, original Mario Bros. worlds working your way backwards towards world 1-1. Along the way you can take detours and use Peach's float ability to reach hidden areas and collect "princess coins."

To "show appreciation and love for him and everything he has done for our community, I had an idea. I am trying to get people to submit as many fan arts as possible so that I may make a huge collaboration of the arts for Cry in a video. People can submit art here http://marstar1234.tumblr.com/ at my Tumblr, in the submission box labeled "Cry Fan Art Project"." "The more fan arts that this project gets, the better. It would be a big help to the project and will hopefully help to repay Cry for everything he's done for us and help cheer him up and show him our support."

Originally, when I told Aeirmid that i was going to write an article about living with PTSD, i was only going to give a typical overview with textbook facts that you have probably heard again and again and I thought, that wouldn't be fair to you. So, i decided to go more outside of my comfort zone In the hopes that it will help others come to terms with their own trauma and perhaps shine some much needed light in a dark place.
My story of survival started back in 2001. I had just begun my freshman year at The Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY. It was a typical day like any other, a very pleasant morning actually. The sun was shining and New York was bustling with activity. I was young, carefree and optimistic as I exited the subway

Twilight Princess StuffI totally forgot I named my file PeterPan. When the light spirit of Faron woods was like, "Heroic PeterPan" it was impossible not to crack up.Twilight Princess Stuff2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And then Colin's all like "PeterPan will save us!" all I could think about was Wendy, and everyone else laughing like Captain Hook and Smee.
When you fight the monster on the boar to get Colin back, I can't be the only one who found the cutscene funny rather than epic. The game was trying so hard to be epic but...lol what was with Epona? She looked all limp and rubbery, her foot lifting off the ground twice...baha what was with the animation? The official art of Link on Epona looks awesome, but in the game it was funny. And the monster on the boar fell like a ton of bricks it was hilarious. Did anyone notice that TP's Epona's neck seems kinda stiff? Majora's Mask Epona's isn't. Weird.
Ok, so while I'm poking some fun at that, I gotta say that I adore the animation on Epona and Wolf Link. It's very addictive gameplay. Epona's really fast in this
