Quick way to make perfect perspective grids.Hey everyone, I just put up a new video on how to create physically accurate perspective grids in 2 minutes or less. A lot of people, including myself, tend to just eyeball it or make a best guess, but with these methods you can make them accurate to camera with very little effort.

Wacom Intous4 Pen Nibs Getting StuckHello Everyone,Wacom Intous4 Pen Nibs Getting Stuck3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few weeks ago I wore out my Intuos4 tablet pen nib to the point where I realized I could not remove it with tweezers and change it, THEN to make it worse, the more I tried to take it out with tweezers the shorter and shorter it got until it was impossible to grab onto it at all. This was incredibly infuriating as, for some reason, it took weeks for Wacom to get back to me (actually, they never got back to me the first time) and I ended up having to send another e-mail to them about this situation, in which they hastily responded this time around.
After I finally got a response for this issue, I was presented with two options. Buy another pen ($50 dollars out of my pocket) or try pulling/pushing it out with a pin. Fortunately, pushing it out with a pin worked! But I am still disappointed that these were the only two options that I was presented with: give Wacom more money for their poorly designed tablet pen (which I hadn't even had for a year yet) or try to figure it
The stuff that artists go through.There are so many pro's and con as to being an artist, professional or as a hobby.The stuff that artists go through.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
It feels nice to be able to express yourself through something you make and when that something turns out to be looking good we get this sense of accomplishment.
Most of the time though there are bad feelings mixed with the good ones.
Not being understood. Those moments where your friends or family does not understand that you have to desire to be alone and work on your art. Those copious amounts of hours you spend working and they wonder why you wouldn't rather be outside relaxing in the sun or hang out with your friends.
The only people who will ever fully understand this are other artists or simply very understandable people. It's important they they will eventually understand so there wont be any hurt feelings. Try to explain ti as calmly and rational as you can, perhaps with using examples in terms they would understand.
Frozen WON? Best Animated Picture?I hate the Oscars for a variety of reasons, but last night we got more proof about how little respect and decision making actually goes into things. Frozen, as you might know by now, won “Best Animated Picture.” But what you may not know is that only some the people voting had actually SEEN the movie, or for that matter, ANY of the animated films listed in the Best Animated Picture category.Frozen WON? Best Animated Picture?11 months ago in Personal More Like This
The Hollywood Reporter was able to get a few quotes from academy members who were voting for various categories (specifically best animated) and here are some of the results:
1. I have seen none of them. I have no interest whatsoever. That ended when I was 6. My son dragged me to a few when he was 6; I would seat him and go outside and make phone calls. My pick: I abstain.
2. I thought Frozen was amazing, and my personal favorite was Despicable Me 2, but I didn’t see all of the nominees, so I didn’t vote. My Pick: I abstained.
3. I don’t see much of a co

Closed Species name: Animimi
They are typically the size of an average human. They are known for their two set of wings that become tattoos when in human form and animal traits. Most of the higher level Animimi's have ears that may or may not take on their hair texture. They can have many different traits from the animal they are. The only thing they all have in common is the collars they wear. These represent they are owned and if one isn't they loose their will of being alone.

Hot Topic DA Art Theft...Maybe?Changed User AgreementsHot Topic DA Art Theft...Maybe?9 months ago in Personal More Like This
You know what I hate about companies? The fact that they can, effectively, take their user agreements and update them without your consent. Thus changing the rules to something you’ve already signed long long ago. I signed up for DA 10 years ago but I’ve never once been asked to agree to the frequently new Terms of Service Agreements they keep updating.
Recently it’s been called to our attention that now DA can license your work, even fanart, off to other companies for a profit. DA gets licensing money, the product makers get money off the merch they sell... but the artist gets nothing. Worse yet, DA doesn’t even need to ask you for permission to do so.
This recently came to our attention in a big way when DA user :iconrismo: discovered that his Adventure Time fanart was being sold on Hot Topic without his knowledge. http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/Adventure+Time+In+The+Rain+T-Shirt-10171581.jsp

They'll be headshots by the way.
It can be anything, as long as it's human (EDIT, What I mean by this is I can't draw animals, I can draw vampire, demon, angel, neko, anything, just not full on animals. If you aren't sure if it qualifies just ask and I'll let you know ^.^ ) .
If it is male, I will try, but he will probably look feminine so I hope you're okay with that XD
This will be great, as it will help me develop my style!
I'll be doing as many of these as possible btw, inspired by twin-tail 's free portrait idea.
I will not get all of these done immediately, but I will do them in any spare time that I have :3
I will be saving the ref's and putting them in a folder, so they will be done in alphabetical order, so if you were the first to comment and your's isn't the first done, don't worry, I'll get there hunny bunches!
Sooo in the honor of twintails...
