Copying to learnI have been asked a few times whether it's ok to copy someone's style of drawing just to practice. I must admit that I've done my share of copying when I was in high school, but I don't think there's anything wrong with it as long as you move on from just imitation to developing your own creative style. The way I see it is that when you're copying, you are trying to understand how the artist is thinking when he/she draws, and through that you learn more about what it is you are drawing and that's when you can start creating your own style. I had mentioned before that back in school, I got to the point where I could pretty much mimic Naoko Takeuchi's style and draw my own original Sailormoon fan art in it, but over time I found that it was lacking because it really wasn't 'me' coming through in the work… which lead me to explore and look into what was to become my current 'style.' Of course it didn't just come to me overnight, and it was informed by more than just Sailormoon – ratheCopying to learn1 year ago in Personal More Like This

PET ONE OF THESE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wildlife Learning Center is a small, fantastic zoo in Sylmar, CA. They care for a menagerie of exotic animals and train them as ambassadors to help educate the public about wildlife preservation. Many of their animals are rescues from pet owners who kept them illegally, or rescues from the wild where various injuries would make their survival impossible. The fundraiser is being held to raise money for the animals' care.

Some of the judges' comments about this entry:
"I think overall, the quality of this art piece is spectacular. You can see the effort put into it, and you can see all the different techniques used in the coloring. The textures are efficiently used as well."
"The calmness and peacefulness of the flower garden is so easily portrayed within her wonderful expression, the sweet spring colors, and the adorable pose."
Some of the judges' comments about this entry:
"The detail and clarity in this drawing is amazing. The colors are beautifully used together. "
"I can tell that this person worked very hard and very carefully on this deviation."
"There's something very capturing in this piece, something in the colors and the pattern of her shadow that makes it look so vintage."
The power's back onMy apartment just regained power today after the hurricane. It's been a pretty interesting four days.The power's back on2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I actually ran through the storm twice on Monday. It was pretty intense and terrifying and you should seriously never do that ever.
While the power was out I reread a the first Lemony Snicket book, learned how to paint (which I'm still terrible at), cooked all of my food so it wouldn't go bad, slept in three different places that weren't my bed, played hide and seek with a bunch of Filipino children, ate an entire jar of peanut butter by itself, took two broken street signs, made friends with the power guys, and became extremely frustrated with my phone for accepting texts on limited cell service but not being able to send them.
Alot of Jersey City still doesn't have power, so I guess I lucked out. Still, it was pretty fun not being distracted by computers and all that for a while.
VentureLast week my partner and I found a stray cat. When we brought her to the vet she weighed 4.15 lbs, was covered in blood and fleas, and had some sort of throat infection.Venture1 year ago in Personal More Like This

COTW UpdateYo, I've come from the mysterious realm of University.COTW Update2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So school fizzles out for me on December eighth, and after that I have about a month off.
Seeing as I'll be bored as shit, and I organized the team for the next episode poorly, I'm going to be animating 23 part 2 on my own, and the team is going to take over for 24, I'll also make sure to organize it better so that everybody is not confused constantly. Pinky Swear, I'll do a better job with that.
Anyhorse, I'm going to be animating the new episode, making a few new Tshirt designs, creating a facebook page I can update often so that I don't randomly disappear from the internet all the time, and best yet I'll finally have time to read/respond to comments again

Sonic BoomSo yeah Sonic Boom was announced...Sonic Boom6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Um not actually a 100% sure how I feel about this.
Like the designs aren't horrible, and would be ok for like a side series alternate time line sort of thing. Tails and Amy actually don't look half bad, they more or less look like them selves but in different costumes.
Sonic, Knuckles and I think Eggman are the only ones i have some issues with. from what I saw of Eggman was that he wasn't fat any more, when his egg shape is where he gets is name from. With Sonic, he just looks too long or some thing, and yeah he looks weird with blue arms, it also doesn't make sense why Sonic and Amy would have different fur patterns even though they are the same species. I think my issues with Knuckles is the same allot of people have, hes just really out of proportion, and why dose he have fingers that's my biggest pet-peeve about his design. When I first saw the characters there where in 3D and the first thought i had was "Did

When recently asked how his political candidate would explain certain positions taken during the
nomination process with contrary positions to be taken during the general election, the campaign chief
replied that stated political positions were “like an Etch A Sketch,”—meaning they could simply be
flipped over, erased and begun over from scratch.
Were it that adult life were as simple as a happy Etch A Sketch memory from childhood.
(The campaign chief took heavy heat for his flippant, if truthful, statement.) The incident made
me wonder how many of us had early experiences as “sketch artists” with that incredible red toy that
has become almost standard issue for so many children still to this day.
For those unfamiliar with the magi

I have figured out a way to fix transparent items in SFM
Open up the VMT file related to the item that's transparent and add "$AmbientOcclusion" "0"
It must be actually like it is in the image I edited the VMT files related to the solider Zombie and added "$AmbientOcclusion" "0" to each file and saved
Without the line we added you can see his head through his helmet, if you're worred about messing up your file, make a backup of your VMT file, I will not be responsible if you're not able to do it
