Fight for Young JusticeHey guys, long time no see.Fight for Young Justice2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I want it to be known that I am beyond upset at the loss of Young Justice, and for that reason I've decided to be one of many to fight for its return. There is a Facebook group called Squads of Young Justice that is using the divide and conquer method. There are six groups:
Alpha: Goes after CN through Facebook - sharing pictures, promoting pages, rallying troops - to make CN see us!
Beta: Also in social media, but through Twitter - tweeting at producers, at the stations, at suppliers.
Epsilon: Attack via Youtube. Make any type of video promoting the return of YJ.
Gamma: Research Squad - our version of Oracle. Idea is to keep the rest of the squads up to date on all YJ info that can be used for us. Such as stories on others fighting the fight, articles on YJ reviews and ratings, etc. Other tasks will be given as needed.
Delta: Ground Squad - responsible for spamming CN with the physical proof of our want for YJ's return. Be it hand written letters, art, post

Manip Academy 2: Soft effects in PhotomanipulationToday's Manip Academy article was written by Cinnamoncandy. I am posting it for her, but the full credit for the tutorial should go to her. Please take a moment to share some love and gratitude on her page!Manip Academy 2: Soft effects in Photomanipulation4 months ago in Personal More Like This
In today’s Manip Academy blog I’m going to teach you how to achieve a softening effect with your photomanipulations. This is a trick that I often use, especially for fantasy and emotional style pieces.
NOTE: When I do this technique it is usually my finishing step, so my image is duplicated and my layers are already merged.
Step One: Go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur. I usually set the Radius at 3.0 pixels; however, you can adjust it to your liking. Click okay.
Step Two: Go to Edit>Fade Gaussian Blur. Set the opacity. Again, you can adjust it to your liking. I often use 25 to 30%. Set the mode to Soft Light. Click OK.

This was a disturbing factoid I just read, in a excerpt from an interview between Paul Dini (one of the original creators of Batman: TAS) and uber-nerd Kevin Smith.... he says his time at Cartoon Network revelead a despicable corporate trend. The network hates the female demographic. They only want boys watching and buying the toys, they don't give a crap or want shows drawing in the female demographic.
This people, is probably a factor in the choice to abruptly pull and cancel YJ. And Green Lantern. And most recently Beware the Batman. Cartoon Network would rather cancel popular shows than have an audience with "too many girls". God forbid smart writing draws in a grown-up audience, of boys and girls. If merchandising numbers are not to their satisfaction, as Dini suggests... it's the frackin' axe

YOUNG JUSTICE: CANCELLATIONYes, YOUNG JUSTICE fans, the sad news is now official. This very popular show will -- Reach-- its abrupt and premature end with the conclusion of Season Two. It is with a heavy heart that I confirm the reports. Of course, none of us was able to say anything about it since last year. It was a very fun ride. As for the reasons behind the cancellation, I can only say that it was beyond the control of WB Animation, and that the decision was made by the powers at Cartoon Network (bless 'em). On behalf of the producers, and the rest of our dedicated crew at YOUNG JUSTICE, I would like to express our deepest gratitude to all the loyal fans who supported us, who shared the dream with us, and who will continue to love the YOUNG JUSTICE universe, with all its wonderful characters. Thank you, DC Comics! Thank you for the wonderful playground in which to frolic. Thanks to all the great voice actors!

YoungJustice-Season3Hey guys!YoungJustice-Season32 years ago in Personal More Like This
So even though the final episode of the season aired on Saturday and all may seem lost, the YJ fandom is still going to try just as hard (maybe even harder!) to let Cartoon Network keep the show alive.
If you want to stay updated on what you can do to help, you can join the group YoungJustice-Season3 and follow the tumblr blog HelpSaveOurHeroes (http://helpsaveourheroes.tumblr.com/) to stay updated on other fandom projects, like weekly twitter campaigns, to help save both YJ and GL:TAS.
Also, I think the best thing you can do right now, if you're able to, is to buy merchandise! Cartoon Network is cancelling YJ and GL:TAS because it's not profiting enough off of them, so purchasing episodes and the companion comics will show the network that it can make money from these shows.
And if you want to write to Cartoon Network, please remember to keep it civil and polite.
This is no time for any of us to give up! I have faith that we can save our show, but we all need to d

Hello little deerlings! I think it is time to talk about fifth chapter of Random Doom!
Random Doom - 5th Chapter - Random Doom in Veilstone City
Elisa finally arrives to the Veilstone city. She leaves all her (RD) pokemon to pokecenter for an annual check up while she goes for shopping (and receives a make-over). Everything should be fine and dandy but unfortunately everything goes wrong when a certain purple imp and electric light bulb also come to the city. This causes some restlessness among the pokemon and suddenly all Elisa's pokemon are running around the city. Can Veilstone handle them?
And that is the synopsis of the fifth chapter. It will mostly focus around the same characters as in the third chapter but ALL characters have a part in this chapter.

Cartoon Network has revealed its 2013-2014 lineup of programming, and perhaps not surprising -- but disappointing all the same -- is the absence of Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series on the list of returning shows. Yes, it seems as though the net's DC Nation block of programming will be retooled later this year, dropping those two fan-fave shows in favor of the new Beware The Batman and Teen Titans GO! Such is the life of a superhero…
The writing has been on the wall for Young Justice and Green Lantern for some time now, and while this isn't an official confirmation of their cancellation, it would seem that it is a case of "no news is bad new

So yeah, commissions will be a little bit delayed again, sorry guys! But I will try to get some done on the train, promise! A big thank you goes to all of my friends who believed I could get something this big, and for all of my watchers who supported me. God blessed me with something big this year, even if it is a one time deal. It's only one episode, but I still get a shot at working in the industry on one of my favorite shows.
I can't share any more information about the opportunity But yeah, if I'm not active here over the break, starting tomorrow, it's not only because I went to L.A. for a week and a half, but because my mom and bro are coming over for Christmas and I will be doing some official work.
Thanks for the support, especially to my closest buddies, online and in real life.

How to Catch an Art ThiefArt thievery is running rampant in our beautiful online, artistic garden of Eden and sometimes, even worse is siting the wrong artist on the art we post. It is so important to site the original artist when you are posting art onto your tumblr page/blogs/inspiration walls or at least having the source go back to the original artist's page. Also, never post an artist's work onto DeviantArt that isn't your ORIGINAL WORK.How to Catch an Art Thief2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know it all seems like a lot of work and I know for a fact that a lot of people delete original artist's comments and links to "cut down on tumblr page clutter" But it's the right thing to do and contrary to popular belief (I don't know who in the right mind would think this) but we artists are NOT RICH and sometimes the "tumblr famous"/ "online famous" artists aren't famous anywhere else. I can't speak for all artists, but I do know this though, whether you are a digital or a traditional artist, famous online, famous in museums or not famous at all, whether you have lo

What is GK?
Garage kit is a term referring to the niche, cast resin models that are made in small quantities, often by hobbyist in his/her garage - thus, the name sake, garage kits. The subjects of GKs are diverse, from anime to realistic-looking models to animals, and even mecha. The focus here is the anime figures. Below is a picture of what a GK look like:
