The Art/Porn Divide[Cautiuon: This journal entry contains words and images which are explicit and NWS]The Art/Porn Divide3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok watchers,I want some opinions on this one.
Is there too much porn on deviantart?
After logging in today and finding this: on the front page I decided to dust off my soap box once more. This is the THIRD TIME in as many DAYS that I have come across a woman's fully exposed vagina on the front page. This issue is becoming more and more apparent with each passing day. A few years back, the DA front page was saturated with anime art, and now apparently pornography is the 'new black', as it were.
To put it bluntly, the difference between art for me - and a lot of others that I know - is meaning. Art conveys some deeper meaning, something that isn't "fuck me, for I am naked and sexy".
Like I've said before, I have no issues with pornography, but what I do have an issue with is the lackadaisical way with which deviantart staff and helpers enforce their basest of policies. Reporting a deviati
Sins of an ArtistI've been under fire recently for having the audacity to admit publicly that improving my art has never been, and never was, an ultimate goal of mine. Apparently that's like committing some sort of mortal sin in the art community. I've had trouble expressing myself about it too, because brushing off improvement for improvement sake makes me look like I'm uncaring, egocentric, and stubborn. But after a recent post I was given much more clarity in understanding the issue and I wanted to share my thoughts with you.Sins of an Artist3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the recent exchange I was basically told this: "If doing what you love isn't about dedicating your life to improving your art, you aren't an artist."
Maybe I'm old fashioned, but making art has never been solely about the technical expertise. Even in college, outside the handful of foundation courses you take in freshman year, perfection of the craft is often secondary to concepts and ideas and your ability to evoke feelings and emotions in your audience.
my weird experiences. Night Terrors?Ive been having weird experiences the past few weeks while sleeping. Atleast I think i am anyway.. In the morning or even during the day ill have these odd vague memories of suddenly jumping out of bed in the middle of the night and switching on my bedside light the night before... onetime I recall even running across my room and switching on the main light. whever its just a memory or not I remember feeling dazed, confused and not fully conscious. sometimes staring at my bed asif im looking for something or checking if something is there before quickly getting back in and falling asleep. This has happened about 5-6 times now. One time I do remember waking up because I thought there were giant spiders in my bed or something ..some sort of creepy crawly insect... I really can't remember but defo something to do with insects (even though I am not arachnophobic and i actually love spiders and bugs) But this was just one time. ..Another time... possibly weirder..I woke up and mymy weird experiences.

Anatomy booksI'm frequently asked how I learned to draw and the answer is very simple - a large part of my knowledge is self taught from books. That's why I thought it would be a good idea to share some titles I owned or came across and used them through the years. Hopefully someone will find this list useful :3Anatomy books2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Books that are awesome:
"Anatomy for the Artist" by Sarah Simblet
"The Artist's Guide to Animal Anatomy" by Bammes Gottfried
Books that are good:
" Drawing the Head and Hands" by Andrew Loomis
"Figure Drawing for all it's Worth" also by Andrew Loomis
Books that are ok but from the time perspective I do not recommend them:
"How to Draw Heads and Portraits" by Jose M. Parramon
"Human Figure" by Jose M. Parramon

DON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah BradleyDon't go to art schoolDON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah Bradley2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The traditional approach is failing us. It's time for a change.
I'VE HAD IT.
I will no longer encourage aspiring artists to attend art school. I just won't do it. Unless you're given a full ride scholarship (or have parents with money to burn), attending art school is a waste of your money.
I have a diploma from the best public art school in the nation. Prior to that I attended the best private art school in the nation. I'm not some flaky, disgruntled art graduate, either. I have a quite successful career, thankyouverymuch.
But I am saddened and ashamed at art schools and their blatant exploitation of students. Graduates are woefully ill-prepared for the realities of being professional artists and racked with obscene amounts of debt. By their own estimation, the cost of a four year education at RISD is $245,816. As way

And Spike and Sasuke? Similar bangs, and that's your reason for saying they're the same character? COME ON!
Sorry for the rare outburst of rage here, but seriously... I'm sick of all the this-character totally-looks-like-my-fav-anime-character people.

Sick of when everytime someone, no matter who it is, comes up with an original character, someone else is always there to compare them to some more or less famous Anime character! WHAT's THE POINT?!

Anime, Art, ActivismSorry for the flood of journals!Anime, Art, Activism3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, thank you all for the support about the Comic Con panels, and thank you, dA, for giving me the opportunity to do so!
Speaking of panels, I will be giving another one about how anime and art can be more than just pretty pictures, but also a powerful mechanism of change. I will talk about how I first started doing activist art, finding inspiration, and how that evolved into my life's career. I will also be talking about how you can easily take action with nothing but the will of your imagination.
The panel will be held at Cal Anime Destiny http://www.calanimedestiny.com a small one day (and super cheap) anime convention held at my university When I'm not panelling, you can find me in the Artist Alley (the AA is small, so I'll be easy to find ).

1/3 cup unsweetened soy milk
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup unscented liquid bubble bath
Heat (but do not boil) the soy milk and cocoa powder and stir until blended. Let cool.
Add the bubble bath and stir.
Pour the entire batch into the tub. Enjoy!
Anti-Zit Face Mask
1 Tbsp. cruelty-free baking soda
1-2 Tbsp. filtered water
Mix the baking soda and water together until you've got a paste.
Apply to your face and leave on for about 20 minutes.
Rinse and follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer.
1 aspirin tablet (contains salicylic acid, which helps unclog pores)
Crush the aspirin with the back of a spoon and add just enough water to form a paste. Apply to the blemishes and let sit for about 15 minutes before rinsing.
Another spot treatment trick is to take a dab of cruelty-free toothpaste (the white paste kind, not the gel), and apply it to blemishes. Leave on overnight. This will dry out zits quickly.

My Minecraft Testificate InfestationIn Minecraft there are these squidward like villagers called Testificates. In a recent update they were given new abilities such as having babies to repopulating a town based on the number of houses there are. Since the requirement for a "house" is simply a room with a roof and a door, I decided to spend my time building a massive city for the Testificates to populate, using a generated village as a starting point.My Minecraft Testificate Infestation3 years ago in Personal More Like This
After building a number of houses, I began noticing the little children running wild and there becoming quite a LOT of villagers. I undertook a huge task of building a BIG open area underground with a couple doors and lights. Because the area was so big, the Testificates began to... um... OVER populate.
These little buggers reproduced the village so fast that I couldn't keep up and soon they were overflowing out of buildings. Mob attacks couldn't keep up with the rate they were repopulating, and the iron golems that kept spawning (for every 15 villager a new one spawns) made

My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you

Permitted usage of the photos (Updated)UPDATE: Please scroll down for a list of frequently asked questions.Permitted usage of the photos (Updated)5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I get a lot of requests from people asking whether they could use my photos for reference, I thought I'd lose a few words about what's permitted and what's not.
If you want to use the photos for reference - feel free. After all, the moment you look at it, it turns into a reference in your brain anyways I would appreciate if you could link back to either www.lupinity.com (preferred) or my dA page though. And I'd love to see the outcome of it all, if you are willing to show
Please note, however, that referencing does not equal copying. Simply painting over a photo (tracing) or reproducing it in any other way (sometimes referred to as "heavy referencing" or re-painting by some artists) is not what I would call referencing. Doing that for practice and strictly non-profit personal stuff is okay, but I certainly wouldn't like to see prints of something like this sold.

So why are there so many people who hate LGBT people? We have feelings, too. We feel pain, sadness, and love. We have a choice to love whoever we want. So please, back off. We aren't hurting anyone. There is no need to shield your childrens' eyes from two men or two women holding hands. You are just shielding them from love. What happens if your child turns out gay? Hmm? Will you hate them too?
