Internet TimeWe had the Oscars recently and as usual it wasn't without problems. One of the controversies was Chris Rock's biting commentary about doing voice work for animated films, which was unfortunately insulting to the many hard working (yet perpetually unknown) talents who produce about 90% of all voice work in the animated medium. Chris Rock's joke was funny for his circle of friends and the aging academy, but to younger artists and professionals it was very disrespectful. Voice actress Tara Strong took particular issue with Rock's comment and as we speak his twitter account is no doubt being flooded with angry hate messages and likely racism too... which is very unfortunate. http://www.examiner.com/african-american-entertainment-in-national/tara-strong-attacks-chris-rock-over-oscar-2012-animation-comments-quotesInternet Time3 years ago in Personal More Like This

My favorite ART suppliesI get asked a lot what pens and pencils I use. So I thought I'd post an updated list of my favorites. I'm a big fan of trying new things, I'm always buying lots of different pens to try out and in my search for the best tools to use for creating comics Ive found these to work the best for my needs.My favorite ART supplies3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My number one question that others ask me is "What do you ink with?"
I use Kuretake brush pens. Here's a link to a sable hair brush pen that I love, it's the closest thing to a real brush I've used. It is pricey though. http://www.jetpens.com/Kuretake-No.-40-Fountain-Hair-Brush-Pen-Sable-Hair-Refill/pd/3958
The less expensive version is the synthetic hair, http://www.jetpens.com/Kuretake-No.-13-Fountain-Hair-Brush-Pen-Red-Body/pd/2661 this brush pen is similar to a Pentel brush pen. http://www.jetpens.com/Pentel-Pocket-Brush-Pen-for-Calligraphy/pd/1793
The cool thing about these Kuretake brush pens is the refill cartridges have nice ink in them that I use, but if you find you don't like the

How to be a good subject for your photographer!You should try to:How to be a good subject for your photographer!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
- Instantly listens to quick prompts / direction.
- Be open to any critique mid or after shoots!
- Have a decent understanding of what the photographer is looking at (light/framing)
- Pose naturally and (if in Cosplay) act in character .
- Be confident for the duration of the shoot.
- Avoid being self concious.
- Be aware of the direction of light (to avoid unflattering shadows, etc)
- Loosen up! Literally. Shake your limbs and relax your muscles from time to time.
- Avoid squinting. If the sun is too bright you will naturally squint. Close your eyes and ask the photographer to do a count down.
- Throw ideas at your photographer. Be creative.
So there you go.. If you want to make life incredibly easy for your photographer try and nail the above points.
While I'm shooting I need 100% trust from my subject. I also can't have anyone disagreeing with my requests however odd they are (unless I ask em to do something dangerous, lol).
This completely breaks my creative flow

Well, I received a lot of commission orders. I want to thank everyone who bought one. I will do my very best to make you a piece that you'll love
The list is pretty long, but I'll be working diligently on them. Thank you for your patience while I work my way down the list to your name.
I'll email you when I begin your piece, so that you will know to expect it soon
I'm also delighted at the positive response to my photos of Anya, my domestic fox.
I will have many more photos and videos to share in a few weeks. She is not living with me as of yet - I had to move to a neighboring city because my old city was telling me that foxes were not allowed (even though they had no actual, written law that said this and therefore no legal grounds to enforce this prohibition on me, but they did anyway).
So I bought a new house (with an acre!) and will be bringing her home to Michigan in early May (shes living with a friend in Florida at the moment). So when she's with me I'll have the op

Does anyone else remember being a baby?If so, I have a question:Does anyone else remember being a baby?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I thought it was pretty common, but I've only met two other people who remember, including my mum. I remember a lot of things from when I was a baby, and from about two year old an onwards, everything is as clear as if it were yesterday.
My question is: Before you could recognize yourself in a mirror, what did you imagine yourself to look like? I thought I was a weird grey toad thing in a tuxedo with massive lips and mickey mouse gloves. But I would like to know what other people thought.
More art is coming, in a bit of a block right now unfortunately.
i don't usually rant butyou do not comment on someone's commission prices or adopts and tell them that the price is too high.i don't usually rant but1 year ago in Personal More Like This
NO. don't do it. it is very rude and it completely throws all of the effort the artist put into their art into the trash.
"but kitty," you might whine, "their skills really don't match the price!"
keep it to yourself. if you're really that sure that you're right, then phrase your goddamn comment properly.
no, this didn't happen to me. but i have stumbled on several well-made adopts that have comments that say the SB or AB price is set too high.
who are you to say that?! the artist worked very hard on that adopt and must be very proud of it, and you're just going to imply , "oh i think it's not as good as you think it is, you set the price too high"
nnoooOOoOOOonOnNO. STOP IT.
New deviantART ThumbnailsHey folks!New deviantART Thumbnails3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may remember a while back we showed off some brand new thumbnails in #hq's Journal. Well, after many weeks of porting and tweaking based on community feedback, we finally got these brand new thumbs ready for beta testing!
The new thumbnails
UPDATE (May 19, 2012): Based on feedback received, we've updated the new thumbnails to be justified. Thumbnails are now spaced out across the rows, making them flush against the left and right sides of the page. When a browser's window is too small, justification cannot happen without leaving larger awkward spaces. In these cases, justification is turned off and thumbnails become left aligned. We think these changes present the most appealing interface for both cases.
For those of you who didn't see the new thumbs when they were previewed a month back, here's a re

We won't be strict about the colour of the characters, objects, but the overall picture must give off the impression of the colour you have chosen. In fact, we encourage you to experiment with colours, exploring the depth of toning and lighting using different kinds of colour!
Here are some examples of what kind of artworks we are looking for in terms of colour composition and quality:
Season finale thoughts.Season finale?Season finale thoughts.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I loved it.
The FiM team is amazing, and I am consistently impressed with the work they do on each episode.
I marvel at the believability they breathe into the world and the characters. From the writing to the music to the animation. Each component is seriously and thoughtfully composed... The emotions of the characters feel genuine, and because the characters take themselves seriously, the viewers connect with them.
Cartoons/animations/comics have immense power... and it makes me so happy to see a cartoon that finally takes that power seriously. Most people dismiss the idea of cartoons being serious, and that is a tragic mistake... Cartoons are symbolic in their expression, and the more "simple" they are, the more symbolic they may become. My Little Pony is the perfect example of this. The designs are simple, but the symbolism is rich with meaning and substance (because the creators care). This is why it is a good show.
Children deserve to be taken serious
I fail at artI was going trough old binders and found some of my ancient "art". Some of it was hilariously bad so of course, being shameless as I am, now it's time to share.I fail at art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is how I was drawing when I was a teenager, something around 15-17.
Behold my weaboo phase! Yes, I was drawing animu. I never got a good grip on that style so it's all hideous.

That hand. That space between eyes. That fabric, hair, expression, composition ...well everything.

Making comics is fun, and everybody can do it, but sometimes a long epic story can be daunting, so maybe you keep putting off starting a comic. How about some practice on a 1 page scene?
Was there ever a scene you thought would be cool and really wanted to be in the BBA comic?
Illustrate a 1 page scene that takes place in the BBA world and has at least 1 BBA character in it. The plot, medium and style are entirely up to you. You may incorporate your own OCs into it too. Absolutely no experience necessary, it's even better if you've never attempted a comic page before!
To enter, please send me a note with subject "contest entry" linking me to your comic.
Deadline will February 7th.
