Thoughts on art[Because it's 4 AM and I can't get to sleep.]Thoughts on art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you're stuck on a blank page and don't know what to do, draw something from reference. Draw something from memory. Or just start drawing and see what happens. The worst thing you can do is keep that page blank even longer.
Silhouette is hugely important. It defines character. Of an environment, a character, a machine, anything. Start with the basics. Stick figures of poses, or blocking out of masses. Or drawing of lines of motion. Start with a large brush and wait until the very last moment to make it any smaller. Repeat.
Too much detail will often worsen the overall image. Be selective. Break it up a bit. Don't be repetitive; a rock formation shouldn't have rocks all the same size. Don't draw every single strand of hair; break it up into a few choice clumps and strands. Don't be afraid to leave areas rough and un-detailed if the eye isn't meant to focus there.
Color influences emotion. Colors in real life are often much less saturated t

In the past week I have experienced two noteable 'seconds'. Firstly I was awarded my second DD for which I have given thanks already. Also I have passed my second anniversary of being here on Deviant Art. I am still enjoying my time very much with you amazing people. I know some people have moved on but there are always new people joining who I am happy to meet and welcome as I was welcomed so warmly two years ago. Two years eh? Doesn't time fly when you are enjoying yourself? It does for me. I hope I have become a better photographer and a better editor in my time here. I know I am better in many other ways.
In my profile there is a brief note about me. Well for the last few years I have been exploring the UK and taking pictures of my travels. I decided to get to know my own country after years of neglecting it. I have found many magical places and met many wonderful people along the way. I am so happy to share these experiences with you here. I always try

As always~ English is not my native language so you might come across mistakes. My apologies! If anything is unclear feel free to ask me in the comments.
I'm just showing you what works for me and what's my personal liking. I'm focusing on eye make-up and additional tips. If you think this way of doing a boys cosplay make-up is is using way too much make-up that's totally fine. Everyone has his/her own preferences and this tutorial is just a hint who it can be done.
The shape of eyes differ a lot from one to another, so if you want to try it the way I do my make-up you might have to adjust it to your own eyes. Maybe you have already run into this problem before while seeing a well done eye make-up in a tutorial or worn by an asian cosplayer. Furthermore be aware of the fact that the shape of your eyebrows, wearing c

So, I started opening a million tabs. I thought I had my volume muted. Apparently not. So rather than muting it or going through each tab and pausing the video, I said "fuck it" and just let all of them play together.Beauty! Catharsis!

Best "fuck it" of my life.
Like seriously, all of them together just created the most gorgeous song I have ever heard, it sounded like a really cathartic moment in like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows or something like that, you know? (Not like it sounded like that music, but it sounded fitting.) And for most of the time, the instrumental I heard most clearly was My Heart is Broken, and it had all these other layers on top of it and it was FANTASTIC. And then it like ended with Good Enough and just omfg you have to listen to this. I don't usually like piling very many songs on top of each other... two or three are fine, but

schnotte is a German artist know for his photographs of rotting, decaying buildings and other dark themes. His camera explores architectural structures, but mostly to emphasize their coldness. The human figures in his photographs appear out of place, as if lost in filthy, forgotten, broken-down manufacturing machines, the cold, dark environments not built with humanity in mind. Looking through these images we can see the ghosts of the love that once inhabited his worlds and it is that love that still shines through his pictures. We are blown away by the beauty Schotte imbues to these deathly quiet scenes that are equally sad and uplifting

With only so many episodes left, they bring out the BIG GUNS and let the tears rain down... and it was an amazing episode.
I really enjoyed what they did with Hase and his monster transformation as well as how they portrayed his panic prior to it, so this episode was catering to that sick part of me that enjoys crazy mental trips and trauma in storytelling. We get to see what it's like through the eyes of an Inves-to-be and just how much of a dick Redyue is, for everytime Kota tries to do something he ends up hurting someone... which makes you wonder if that's all Redyue or if that was happening to Hase as well...
Kota's actor is amazing in this because he accurately gets across all that's WRON

So a lot has happened since my last update! I've been posting photos of costumes I've made so you'll know approximately which cons I've been going to So this'll be more of a life update.
Well, first of all my family had to make a very difficult decision, and we had to leave our home in Canada. It was very hard - my daughter was born there and all our dearest friends live there, however a lot of things were beyond our control. We now live in Finland (where I was born) and are settling in. It sucks more than you know, but we'll deal and you know, maybe something good will come out of this.
jj-dreamworldz visited us here for a month and we even made it to a con in cosplay, but since I had to sell my computer I haven't been able to post any photos. Otherwise cosplay is probably going to take a back seat for a bit (though there's one costume I'm

We all know from the movies that a vampire can’t cross over the threshold into one’s home without being invited. And yet simply knowing that Dracula can be held at bay so easily makes issuing that invitation all the more irresistible. Could such things as supernatural beings actually be real? And could there be ways for we mere mortals to have the power to evoke them into existence or dismiss them as we might pleas

I want to fall in love with art all over again. Going through the painful process of growth as the art-bones stretch and your creativity get's set loose after wondering if you had any creativity at all!
2015 marks a new year and a new start, make the most of it and don't start it unprepared!
Here follows a list of things I'd like to do in 2015. You could call it a bucket-list. You can copy mine or make your own, but this might give you some ideas for yourself.
1. Going through all the fundamentals all over again.
It has been a few years that I studied any fundamentals and they seem to be lost somewhere in a dusty corner of my brain. I will buy: Books, video's, classes and study it by drawing or painting the knowledge I get from this. After doing so I will discus the topics with some fellow artist friends and see if they have feedback or perhaps anything to add that I might have missed.

My official opinion of Home on the RangeI remember watching the movie in theaters when I was eight. I actually liked it, and wanted to see it again.My official opinion of Home on the Range1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It wasn't until years later that I found that everyone hated it. I was surprised, but then, for a while, I began to blindly hate it just to agree with everyone else. (Hence all my comments about not being fond of it.)
THEN I recently read :iconduckyworth:'s review, and he and :icondisneycow82: taught me that I should judge a movie myself, not by what the snobby critics think.
Now that I think about it, people rarely go into specifics about WHY they hate the movie, and when they do, it's usually for petty and hypocritical reasons. Yes, it had an annoying cow voiced by Rosanne Barr, who makes some pretty painful jokes. (Most notably "Yeah, they're real, quit staring.")
But that alone is not enough to ruin a movie. It had nice animation, nice music (by our good friend Alan Menkin), fun and memorable characters, AND a funny villain. I think it would be accepted had it come out in th

Just letting you guys now there are 8 days left to join in on this!
So for fun and self development I decided to challenge myself to each month, focus on 1 color a month and figure out different palettes to use with it. After hearing several people say they liked the idea and wanted to join in, I decided to make it a bit more interesting and open it up to the public as a Color Jam of sorts.
when will it be?

How do you participate?!
Step 1: Find some line-art featuring a red character.

Violence in Brazil (video)Yesterday we had another protest in my city, Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil.Violence in Brazil (video)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The police attacked innocent people who kept yelling "NO VIOLENCE" and "You there, soldiers, you are also explored"... we sat on the ground under the rain and cold in a demonstration of peace, but even so they threw Tear Gas and rubber bullets against people who weren't doing anything wrong. I was there. So people ran in fear, trying not to fall nor to be smashed by a hundred feet... A mass in panic. But the more they pushed us back, more angry we felt.
This videos cannot show the real chaos that was yesterday, only a small part of it. Those footages are from manifestants, 'cause the media won't show what really happened.
There's no turning back. We won't stop now.

"I'd love to see Dusty write an essay on his thinking when creating this piece. Some can grumble about who is included, and who isn't, but I am more interested in WHY various characters made the cut, while others did not. Chris Pike is there, but not Number One. Jahn is there, but not Miri. "The Enemy Within" gets double representation, with "evil" Kirk and the mutt Scotty is holding. William Campbell appears as Trelane, but not as Koloth.
I fault none of his inclusions, or exclusions, but I would enjoy knowing the thinking behind them."
