What are art blocksI was speaking with a friend a little while ago about the dreaded art block.What are art blocks8 months ago in Personal More Like This
It happens sometimes : you feel demoralized about your work, you feel that no matter what you try you are stagnating, you have lost your momentum and it turn your motivation off.
It's a pretty bad feeling but there is an important thing to know about art blocks : They are a totally natural process !
I don't know a single artist that don't have them from time to time. There are just days where all you do feel like crap and just the idea of drawing is painful.
I had my share of them so here is my personal take on them and how to fight them
The first thing that is important to mention is I don't think it's actually possible to stagnate when you draw regularly, let alone regressing. Each time you draw, you become a little bit better , it's really as simple as that ! It varies from the type of drawing you do of course but there is always something you pick while drawing : you become faster a

Italian Masters of Horror
Zombie by liliesformary
Giallo is Italian for yellow… and Horror
In the wake of the real life horrors meted out on Italians during World War II, brutalized by Mussolini and then by Nazi occupation and then having their country used as one great battleground chessboard between Nazis and the invading U.S. and Allied forces, there was for a long time little appetite for horror in movies. It wasn’t until 1956 that the first genuine horror film (a vampire story) was produced and released. It bombed, soundly rejected by the public. The film would be of little note

Their birthday is today, but only one is celebrating-Happy Birthday Tay aka Mr Ed ttr . Cody aka Little Blinky passed away Aug 2. He wrote heartfelt posts about his journey through cancer and had many toonbook and online friends. He was compassionate, empathetic toward others and fought his battle bravely. Cody, we will will celebrate your birthday today not with sadness , because you would not have wanted us to be sad, but by remembering all the happier times we had and realizing God let us have you with us for almost 16 short years. Will love you always and forever- MOM Cody was popular on toonbook and in TTR (since Oct 2013) and had many tribute videos made for him. Here is one of them.

Paint Tool Sai Speech Bubbles TutorialFirst you need a new line art layer and to use the vector tools provided. Use the curve tool and edit tool to create your speech bubble shapes.Paint Tool Sai Speech Bubbles Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Below in red is where to find the line art layer. Click it to create a new line art or Vector Layer.
On the new line art layer, click four points in a rought squared egg shape like below in the large red square. Use the curve tool to make this shape. The curve tool is marked in a little red box to the left of the image below.
Now select the edit tool. Then from the middle of each point, click and hold then drag outwards to create a new point and deform your shape into a rough circle. You may need to change between your edit options to edit the shape. Translate should be fine to do most of the shaping.
Then you can use the curve tool to ad the speech bubble tail. That's all there is to making speech bubbles in sai. Of course you can draw
I Work Hard. Therefore, I'm a Loser.I didn't sit idly all day, twiddling my fingers, wishing work came to me.I Work Hard. Therefore, I'm a Loser.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I didn't loathe at myself wishing that I could "draw feet" when working on a piece at the spot where I have to draw feet on the picture.
I didn't go to further schooling to let someone hand me a piece of paper on their own terms and timeframe telling me if I'm "capable of art" or not.
I took things into my own hands.
A couple of common phrases to make to artists who are (of the person who believes that they're) "inexplicably too good" that annoy me are:
"Ugh, I really wish I had your talent. Why are you so good!?"
"You're so lucky. I wish I could do what you do".
"I could never pull this off the way you pull it off."
Now, I understand that there are certain levels of aptitudes and paces that different people learn by, so don't get the idea of this entry wrong. But, really, let me make an illustration here:

Ponyscape v0.4 Patched!!Hi Everypony!!Ponyscape v0.4 Patched!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The patched version of Ponyscape 0.4 is here!! Currently, the Windows, 64-bit Linux, Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8 packages are available! The Linux package was built on Linux Mint 14, but it should work on most up-to-date distributions. On Windows, download the zip file and extract it using 7zip or winrar and run ponyscape.exe. On Linux, download the deb package and install it by running "sudo dpkg -i " or by using a GUI package installer of your choice. On Mac OS X, open the dmg package, drag Ponyscape.app to the Applications folder, and launch Ponyscape.app from your Applications folder. For this patch version, I revamped the Linux package so that everything is now installed in a separate directory from Inkscape and you now run "ponyscape" instead of "inkscape" from a terminal. Additionally I revamped the Mac OS package so that it's now called Ponyscape.app (and I tweaked it a bit so it runs smoother).
You can get the binary packages here (md5's are provided f

Honestly didn't see that one coming, but I am happy nonetheless. While the first game wasn't very remarkable, I just love the art style and the stark contrast the game presents compared to every other post-apocalyptic-near-future-world that exists. Chock me up to interested.
Didn't see this one coming either. Quite surprised, but personally don't care. I've never really paid attention to fighting games much, yes even Super Smash Bros. I have a feeling this will be one of those games that we think will be amazing, but the newest generation of kids won't understand why they should care (kinda like DuckTales).
Sidenote: Quite disappointed with the way they handled the demonstration by bringing out a woman to play multiplayer with and "destroying" her while simultaneously saying shit like "just give up... it will be over soon." Scripted or not, that scene was appalling.

Mean characters and why you should let them stayThere is group of personalities in Object Shows called "mean characters". They are sometimes called "meanies".Mean characters and why you should let them stay9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Their personalities can range from "Annoying" to "Selfish/Bossy" to "Mean" and to "Evil".
Mean characters in Object shows:
BFDI/A: Flower, Snowball, Blocky, Golf Ball, Donut, Pin
I.I.: Balloon (formerly), Knife (formerly), YinYang, Trophy
OU/T: Mii U, Basketball
OM: Gun, Burrito
OO: Lighter, Crayon
OL: Bowling Ball, Lollipop, Blackcurrant
Mean characters can be classified into may categories:
Selfish Divas/Dudes: Characters that are mostly self-centered and boastful. They often believe that they are more fabulous or stronger than they really are. They often regard other contestants with scorn and feel happy when a teammate dies (Match appreciating Spongy's death in BFDIA 2). They usually talk to themselves.
Bossy Bots: Characters that are, well you know, bossy. The nickname for this group was coined by Eraser in BFDI episode 1. They often order contestants about without a

Disney vs Lucas ArtsIf ever you bring up Disney in a conversation, people immediately recite tired old issues with the company that haven't been true for a long time. For example, complaining about the excess of half-assed sequels. That was part of Michael Eisner's regime. When he left the studio the quality Disney was producing suddenly skyrocketed considerably. Likewise the excessive merchandising and branding of Disney related products has also ceased to be as all-consuming now that Eisner is gone. In fact, a lot of the main issues people had with Disney during the 90's and early 2000's was a result of Eisner.Disney vs Lucas Arts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since Eisner left, the Disney studio has done a REMARKABLE job in clearing their name of many of the atrocities they had committed during his regime. They promptly turned the animation department around and have even begun doing 2-D animated films again after Eisner said "no." Granted, at the moment 2-D is still in hiatus, but the situation isn't as dire as it use to be and there's still promise
