Celebrating Diversity #36The idea behind the Celebrating Diversity Project is to share deviations outside of our area of comfort and explore art we usually don't see. So today, I decided to venture into the Stock Photography gallery and you know what I discovered? That there are some stock photographs, which by nature are intended for other artists to use, as reference or for derivative works, etc. that are truly masterpieces just by themselves!Celebrating Diversity #362 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Why I don't want to study something art related..."What are you studying?"Why I don't want to study something art related...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Media and Business Psychology."
"Whaaat? Why don't you study design or something like that? You are such a talented artist!!"
Yeah, this kind of dialogue I've had so often.
I won't make a full career in art since art should be a hobby and no duty.
I had art as major subject in school and this showed me art can be annoying too, when I don't feel like drawing but I have to.
There are some days I don't feel like drawing at all, days I can't even take a pencil in my hands.
Of course, statistic isn't a thing I like but I have to learn it for my studies. So many numbers! -.-
But since I am strongly connected with my art, I don't want to lose my fun and passion, if I get sick of it.
Drawing can be a really hard work, a detailled picture takes me around 10 to 15 hours but it's much easier for me, if I have fun while drawing.
And anyway, I want to draw for myself mainly and I want to decide what to draw.
And not to mention, the Manga Style isn't really popular in art s

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:

MythBuster - Busting the Myth of Cosplay StandardsLast week, I was left to ponder over a passing comment that I found on my Facebook newsfeed. What if Charles Darwin's theory of evolution was wrong? What if instead of evolving, people are de-evolving? For this I was looking into the perspective of what if people instead of becoming smarter end up being dumber.MythBuster - Busting the Myth of Cosplay Standards4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Such had been the case that I witness among the newcomers in the community, not only the cosplayers but the event organizers and judges as well. It seems to me that the over-enthusiasm for the share of the pie in terms of "imaginary fame" has cause them to make the most nonsensical and illogical arguments to gain credibility among the community. Sadly to say, it seems such comments are gaining in popularity and seen as the "standard" of cosplay.
It is about time get some myth about cosplay standard busted.

There are many variations of this myth such as "the amount of favs for your Devia

HOW TO ADD MUSIC TO A PICTURE:I have been asked by a butt load of people "How do you add music to a picture?".HOW TO ADD MUSIC TO A PICTURE:2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So here, have the explaination I just gave someone:
I use Adobe Flash CS4 Professional, but it should work for most, if not all, Flash varieties.
Open flash. (hurrdurr.)
Make sure you change the size of the stage to the size of picture you're using by going into properties and changing the dimensions.
Then File > import > import to stage
After that, make sure you go to library and right click on the picture file that automatically shows up.
Go into properties and select 'Allow smoothing' otherwise it will be all blurred and nasty.
Then go File > import > import to library and select the sound file you want.
When it shows up in the library, right click and go into properties.
Make sure you selct the highest quality of sound it has, choosing the highest bit rate (mine says 160kbps)
After that, drag it onto the stage.
Press ctrl + enter to test the movie.
If everything is right, go file > export > export movi

TentaclesDo you know what's awesome?Tentacles2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
They can be cute, they can be intimidating. They can be colourful, or muted. They can appear fierce and strong, or swirl in delicate, graceful lines.
These muscular structures are best known as those attached jellyfish, but they're found in a massive array of invertebrates, some mammals & amphibians, and even in plants! We always associate them as having suckers, but some species come equipped with all sorts of interesting structures. Some tentacles have eyes at the end of them (snails) others have teeth (giant squid). Some can release venom (jellyfish) and others are lined with sharp swivelling hooks (colossal squid).
But where they are best known is the one place they are most often misnamed: the octopus. The 8 limbs on the octopus are actually arms, not tentacles. Tentacles are actually much longer than arms, and only have suckers on the very tips rather than scaling the whole length of them.
But tentacles jus

If You Want Attention, Get It For A Good ReasonThe opinions in this journal are my own, and if you don't agree, that's fine. If you do, thanks!If You Want Attention, Get It For A Good Reason1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's inevitable. We all want attention from others at some point in our lives. I don't care who you are or how much you deny it, you've probably done something in your lifetime in order to get attention, whether it be positive or negative, because you probably didn't care how bad it was as long as someone noticed you. I've done it, too. People love controversy, so we do things that harm ourselves or others, or we do things that are just plain unacceptable in order for someone else to say 'wow, look at what they did'. Stupid as it is, bad things seem to attract more attention than good things. Why people are so attached to controversy and bullshit is beyond me. And then there are those who are, as they say, attention whores and they simply cannot live without having everyone's gaze on them as they make idiots of themselves and fall deeper and deeper into a hole of infamy.

Say and not to say First off, I always wanted to write something like this for many reason; but possibly because this could be used as a small guide to others. So, the title says it all! Now, just keep in mind that I have my own opinions and points of view for this subject. Also, if I miss out a point that you didn’t see in this, please feel free to share! Also I would love your guys’ feedback on this.Say and not to say5 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, as an artist (the forms of drawing, painting, etc) we often get lots of different types of comments, points of views, critics, etc. Also, we often attract certain people. Now, as an artist I love to have peopled look at my art and tell me what they think about it. But some of the comments or things I get told often…well can offend me or make me feel uncomfortable. So, now I will be sharing a few things to say and not to say in front of an artist.

I got a new Paypal: Joker@bofus.org For those who are getting commissions from me: First off, I think I am going to change up something here. Because there's a lot of people just sitting on the commission list, I'd hate to make ppl that are ready to get their art sooner, wait behind ppl that are not paying at all yet. So, I'm going to go by the order of whoever pays first, gets their art first. Whether you ordered first or not. I think this method will help clear the chaos that I'm kind of falling into with so many people. I'm really getting unorganized! AH. Anyways, I still have to reply to some notes, but I honestly keep getting new notes that cover over older notes. It's getting hard to keep track. I'll keep trying, but I'm sorry for the slow responses! There's been an explosion of people
