Anti-humanity?Had a real funny conversation with my girl yesterday and it got me curious for more opinions.Anti-humanity?1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I´m the type of guy that is always on the other non-human team in human vs whatever movies, it´s not that I completely hate humanity, I just think we completely screwed up and kicked ourselves out of the food chain a long time ago.
If humanity would come to an end I believe it´s for the best, for the earth and everyone else that inhabits it.
Meg on the other hand think we deserve a second chance and believe we can change.
I would like to believe that we are capable of change but it doesn´t look very bright and if we do realize a change is needed it will probably be too late.
Humans are already getting more and more infertile, which should make us realize we are slowly killing our own species by the way we are living.
We also talked about the possiblity to leave earth once it crumbles and save humanity on a different planet.
I say no to that too cause it´s just our natu
About My FeonixesTo clarify now, these are my little critters (some of these examples are owned by other people)About My Feonixes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the past I've sold 'adoptables' of these guys. I created designs and color patterns ect and sold them. I've also done custom Feonixes where people have some freedom on what they want their design to look like.
I am going to be doing what I'm doing so if there are people out there that want one of my critters, they can. But please be respectful of a few guidelines. Feonixes are not 'sparkledogs' or have some chunk of hair on their heads and I'd like it to stay this way.
What does this mean? Feonixes are an open species. This means you can create one, put it in your story, draw it once and never draw it again, ectect. The only thing I ask you to do after you create one is to credit me in some fashion.
Please do not make adoptables, variat

A New Chapter ( or an old one? )Hi guys,A New Chapter ( or an old one? )1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, Friday i left my job that ive been at for the past 5 years. It was a very very difficult decision. It felt like when you break up with someone who is actually really nice and a good person, and you've been with a long time, and they still like you a lot, but you cant really imagine yourself spending your entire life with them, because there's other things you want to try in life. But the parting is still difficult, and sad. So, i'm a little down about it all (in fact maybe my metaphor is flawed because ive cried more than over any breakup!)
But the reason I'm posting about it here is because, well, what I'll be doing with my time now is working on the new comic. Even when I was making sure to schedule time to work on the concepts and writing, it only ever amounted to a few hours a night, and that was after 8.5 hours of pretty creatively intense work on something else, so by the time I was working on my own stuff, I was already pretty drained.
In short youll
The thing about popularityDa has so many popular artists... With over 1,000 deviations submitted daily, what can you expect? I see so many!The thing about popularity2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are proffessionals, those who are inspired to get noticed, those who just draw for the heck of it.
It is not always the best selection when it comes to these artists.
Now don't get me wrong, you see so many artists deserving to be famous! Since being famous in art is only a well known thing within a small group of people (in relation to entire population of course) it is nice to inspire that group of people. From what I have learned, art is a brain compacity that can have many consiquences. Having your brain focus on that so much can make you stay away from other things, or just make you flat out bad at them! If you are having hard times with everything else, why not be rewarded with a nice big inbox of people being happy for you, when no one can be happy for you in anything else? I have seen a few people who are telling the truth when they have high art "talent" and

My DeviantART StoryI had been aware of deviantART’s existence for years and years before actually joining. I think I first saw a link there when I was browsing someone’s personal website and they mentioned they had an account in a big art site. I visited it but didn't understand a bit about how it worked or what was it’s purpose. Slowly, as I became a bit better (or at least less awful) at understanding English, I started to figure it out and became curious. I was afraid of joining for a long time because I knew it might result someone misusing my art, which was the absolute worst thing. I also knew that my English was far from fluent, and internet can be surprisingly harsh towards those who don’t speak English as their first language. I was terrified of writing descriptions to my pieces, because they had to be understandable for people all around the world and I simply lacked words.My DeviantART Story7 months ago in Art Features More Like This

BIG life news + Commissions opening soon!Okay so, I've been sitting on writing this journal for a few weeks now as I was unsure of how to present it. However, I'm going to just put it out there and yeah...BIG life news + Commissions opening soon!1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not going to get into terrible details as I fear it would merely bore you all, but for the last 7 years of my life I have had the honour of being with the most delightful, caring, and wonderful person I have ever met. I've had the wonderful opportunity to meet him 2 times in that time and while it sounds silly, I believe this is the person I will spend my life with.
Many things have happened; trials, illnesses, and sadness BUT through all that we are still together, even after this long. He lives in England and I do not. As such to see him costs a great deal of money from both of us and while it is very very much worth it to see the love of my life, it is a struggle.
Even more so over the last few months.
This summer I am planning to make the journey one last time to assess the situation on movin

Sculpture commission info/policyBasic information:Sculpture commission info/policy3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before contacting me about a commission carefully read the pricing and policy information, and keep in mind that lots of time and material (costs) go into sculpting so i cant afford to sell them cheaply.
I will only work on 1 or 2 commissions at a time but will maintain a reserving list, when your on that list i will contact you when i'm ready to start on the commission.
Before i will start sculpting your commission i will make a sketch first send this to the commissioner and when approved i will ask for a deposit (which will be half of the total sum) i will not start on the commission untill i received the deposit.
I will keep the commissioner updated with lots of work in progress photos and the commissioner has freedom to ask for changes (note that when a sculpture has progressed to far the changes cant be to radical anymore (especially after baking)
So to make the progress go smoothly think over carefully what you want your sculpture to look like (pose/color etc.)
Sipping tea with your Muse Only by fostering a facility with the vocabulary of your artistic medium of choice, can you begin to really free yourself to be open to being creative with it.Sipping tea with your Muse10 months ago in Personal More Like This
The size of that vocabulary is another matter, and that’s about growth, improvement and development. These are important as well, and intricately linked to creativity, in parallel (more on that in a future article). But first let’s talk simply about the genesis aspect of art.
Remember when you were in high school, doodling in the margins of your notebooks? Ballpoint pen and edges of blue-lined notebooks, with half an ear listening to the lesson of the day? There was a familiarity in that setting, and ease that you moved through when you sketched these throwaway doodles. Every once in a while you’d accidentally make one that you’d really like, and you’d save that scrap of paper with notes on American History melding into the lines of a drawing of your D&D charac

I've mentioned in previous journals that I've been planning to host a contest. Well, the wait is over! I've made sure to include a variety of characters, as well a variety of second and third place prizes to go along with the grand prize -- Hanabi Korat -- so I hope you'll consider joining in on the fun. Read on if you're interested!
To make things organized, I'll separate characters into categories! Characters that are linked together with "and" may be drawn together! The "and" links will include couple art of the characters, if it's available. Many of them don't have official refs, if you need additional refs of any of them, feel free to ask me. Also ask me if you'd like to know the artist of a picture! These were all commissioned pieces.

I've taken a hiatus from the internet, and I haven't been keeping up on my accounts, but this morning I found myself browsing tumblr, when I rolled across an ask.
The ask read, and I quote; "ACTUALLY, social justice warriors are just trying to do what you white cis fucks have been doing to us for thousands of years so we have a right to be aggressive to you."
I'm not sure if any of you remember tumblr, three years ago. Back before all of the changes in layout and tos, back when there wasn't so much hate, but I remember that it used to be such a friendly place, where no matter who you are, you could make friends and be accepted.
I've noticed that as the community has grown, so has the hate. Segregation continues, and I see people that used to get along hurting eachother. I remember when the amount of hate on tumblr was "OH, JamJars did..." or "Ugh, she runs a hipster blog a
