ARTIST'S BLOCK - HOW TO BEAT ITHow do you deal with "Artist's Block?"ARTIST'S BLOCK - HOW TO BEAT IT2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't care who you are, or how well you draw, one of these days, the Art Block Fairy is going to pay you a little visit. When that day comes, ideas will be scarcer than possums driving pickup trucks. Despite the randomness of that metaphor, how you handle artist's block will decide when you'll get those creative juices flowing again. Some of you will decide to pause and have a snack. I can tell you from experience that this doesn't do much to kick-start the imagination. When that doesn't work, there's always the option of getting a second snack. But eventually, you'll get too frustrated and too full to keep doing that. There's got to be another solution. So you decide to follow the prevailing wisdom, which is to go for a walk to refresh yourself, in the hopes that inspiration might return. The walk is pleasant, but almost mythical in its fecklessness. If walks worked, the beach would be teaming with cartoonists and write
SUDORAt long last I have achieved a task I have wanted to complete almost as long as I have been on dA: I went through SUDOR's amazing gallery.SUDOR1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I faved hundreds of shots so I made a folder in my favourites section for his work.
I am reminded of a quote by Henri Cartier-Bresson after the impressions I took with me from Joël's gallery:
"[photography] It is a way of shouting, of freeing oneself, not of proving or asserting one's own originality. It is a way of life."
Joël Sueur is gracious in sharing such a cornucopia of images covering different parts of his life: from the very intimate to the hilariously funny, and of course his wonderful street photography... it is all full of life! ... and weirdness ...

Mesoamerican SourcesIt has come to my attention that some of you would like to know what sources I use for my fashion pieces. Well aside from the fashion pieces, some of my art and my comic especially require me to do a ton of research. Since my research is pretty well organized now, I'll use that as a template to organize this list of sources. Keep in mind that the subsections for each culture overlap each other though. For example books on sexuality are just as much books about history, politics and warfare. Most of these I own in my own personal library (only 5 or so were borrowed from the library), but a few can be found online too. These will be divided by culture and specialized information. My sources continue to expand as I continue to research and learn new things. So I will be updating this as I go along. My books are either in spanish or english. Some I could only find in one of the languages. Thankfully I am fluent in both. Sources in bold are my personal faves. And one last thing, these sourcMesoamerican Sources2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Working @ UbisoftNot even kidding, though my contract is only for two months so far. I was offered a unique opportunity to work alongside experts in the industry, and was recruited for concept art, illustration, and storyboarding, bouncing around to see where I might fit with my toony style. It's only been day one so far, but I'm working right alongside professionals and get to learn from them first-hand. Pretty sure I'm still reeling. Obviously I can't tell you what we're working on due to confidentiality agreements, but it's pretty cool to see all the behind-the-scenes action my own self.Working @ Ubisoft2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, this does mean a significant stall in my (slow) progress on HAT, my animation-to-be. While working at LASALLE I literally spent every minute animating if I wasn't busy assisting teachers; now the only time I'll have to work on it will be when I get home, and on the weekends.

i'm still nineteen,
eat he says, more -
i'm still sixteen,
i fill the sink with hot,
submerge my arms up to
my elbows to observe them
changing colour, turn -
i'm stuck at five, i'm on the
kitchen floor and burning,
stuck at ten and running,
with my feet all full of glass -
i said they all have names, have
ages, but were gifts
from different fathers

sorry, but i had to say this about tt warriorsso i was looking on dAsorry, but i had to say this about tt warriors2 years ago in Personal More Like This
i saw a journal about ttrw not having chat. i don't know if it's true or not,
but the person said that warriors needed chat (something like that)
please don't fucking rp warriors on ttr
there are games like feralheart, lastmoon, catpawisland, games meant for rping
games where you're a feral cat
why can't you just go to those
ttrw is meant for people who will actually play the game, not people standing around in cad all day acting like their the best clan ever, when they don't rp at all
remember warriors back when TT was open?
they barely followed the books, had overpowered moves, warriors were overpowered sues (if not then, they are now. seriously, i go to warrior profiles and it's all SPEED PERFECT DEFENSE PERFECT LEAPING OH MAYBE A LITTLE LESS THEN PERFECT OH AND EVERYTHING ELSE PERFECT), acted like they were all perfect. and wolves? wolves weren't even IN the books. why can't you not make a wolf and just be a cat. also, all warriors seemed to care about was ba

Benjamin Jastrow : Altruism or Self-Abnegation?An important point in the characterization of Paper Stars is that each character has one very important characteristic that defines them as a person and influences their day to day lives. Each of these traits are supposed to be both the character's greatest asset and their greatest flaw. They both build the character up and destroy their progress. And in this journal, I wannted to share with my readers an in-depth analysis of Benjamin Jastrow.Benjamin Jastrow : Altruism or Self-Abnegation?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Easily the antithesis of Sara, Benjamin's defining characteristic is his altruism, and all of his other traits are influenced by it or are a result of it. His mild, gentle nature is centered around his carnal fear of causing others discomfort, which, in turn, becomes his own discomfort. His kindness is not limited to only those he cares for--it stretches to all those he meets, even when they are cruel to him, and he willingly shoulders the blame for any and all grievances around him. He is a human scapegoat, an alacritous martyr willing to give u

Myths of Unova AU Contest [CLOSED FOR JUDGING]UPDATE: THE CONTEST IS CLOSED FROM SUBMISSIONS! Judging is underway and we will get the results back to you guys asap! Thank you for all who participated <3Myths of Unova AU Contest [CLOSED FOR JUDGING]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hey guys! It's Ky-nim here with a fun new contest! We're gonna go for some AU/ALTERNATE UNIVERSE SHENANIGANS.
Just in case you are confused, an AU (alternate universe) is defined as stories/works that explore the what-ifs arising from different circumstances. Some of the more popular AUs seen are set in High School, a zombie apocalypse, Victorian England, and even role reversal universes (i.e the MC is the enemy and vice versa). Others take on a more crossover-y nature, by having AUs in other fandom-related settings such as AUs in the Avengers-verse, SnK-verse, Pacific Rim-verse etc.
Sounds like a fun contest and want to participate? Awesome! Here are some guidelines for the contest.
Think of an AU you would like to see the Myths of Unova cast be in (do whatever you want!)
