Life can be fucked up
Life can be screwed up
It's nothin but a test
To see if yer strong enough
So if you mess up
Take a retest and restart
Life is hard
Life is tricky
Life is confusing
So use the damn wheels in your head
and get to thinking
Cause if ya don't your gonna fail
We all make mistakes but you can only make so many
So go back and get to fixing them
No matter how much it may hurt
You gotta fix your damn mistakes and restart
Yeah I'll admit I'm not perfect but neither are you
So that's why I'll go back and restart
I'll be waiting for ya at the end

RIP - H.R. GigerKooky Swiss artist and master of f**ked-up imagery, H.R. Giger, has died: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-27390345RIP - H.R. Giger8 months ago in Personal More Like This
His work was brought to prominence, obviously, by the design of the titular Alien in Ridley Scott’s film, but he was also more or less the godfather of “biomechanical” science fiction/horror illustration.
I can’t say I was ever a real fan of his work. Most of it made my flesh crawl. It was art, but it was utterly repulsive.
Why mention his passing, then? Well, love or hate his style, its effect on the science fiction/horror genres is undeniable, and they wouldn’t be the same without him.
Megaman X9 Chapter 1: The SanctuaryThree weeks later. Due to the incident of Lumine and the new generation reploids going maverick. The new generation reploids production has been halted. Growing weary from the Reploids maverick actions, Humans have created a settlement away from the reploids from different places on earth. The New Generation Reploids incident of going Maverick was kept classified so it won’t spread fear to humans.Megaman X9 Chapter 1: The Sanctuary8 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
X and Zero reported this incident from the higher authority. They mention about their comrade Axl in comatose because Lumine lashes something on his forehead. Axl have not awaken for 3 weeks so X and Zero decided to bring Axl to a more advance investigatory process because he does not show any sign of recovery from the Headquarters. They admitted Axl in New Generation Reploids Research Facility.

What are art blocksI was speaking with a friend a little while ago about the dreaded art block.What are art blocks7 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

A friend of UDON recently passed on a copy of our MEGA MAN TRIBUTE art book to video game designer AK, who had some great things to say about the book. For those who haven't heard of AK, he played a vital role in the original creation of Mega Man's world and systems, working on the game even before Keiji Inafune joined the project.
AK has graciously give us permission to pass his comments to the artists and fans of the book, which is a real treat as he has very rarely given public comments or done any press at all. The UDON crew is proud to share these accolades with all the great artists in Mega Man Tribute:

A few days back, Autodesk released Sketchbook Pro 6, and I think this is the version that's going to make a lot of people who have YET to experience Sketchbook Pro in full, or haven't really given the past versions a chance, switch over to making it their digital drawing software of choice; heck, even their PAINTING software of choice.
We still have the cleverly-designed user interface, that makes it easy on the eyes and mind when we're brainstorming and sketching. With the handful of new tools introduced, we still have a clutter-free drawing environment, and man, there's some awesome tools this time around. I'll go down the list:

M$ are, naturally, trying to pat themselves on the back for this U-Turn, and some people are actually praising them for "listening to consumers".
No. Just, no.
You don't get to pat yourself on the back for having so much money that you can buy your way out of a complete and utter cluster-f**k. You only get to do that when you use common f**king sense and get it right first time. You spend enough bloody money it! There's no excuse!

Devious Journal EntryJust a little note...Devious Journal Entry9 months ago in Personal More Like This
When you see an artist you like and you are trying to figure his work out... the question that gets asked a lot is" How did you do it?"
What software did you use to make this effect?
What is your technique?
These are questions that won't get you anywhere. It's like asking for the fish.
A question you should probably ask is WHY did you do this?.. WHAT were you thinking?
When you ask this question, you are thinking about the principles of fishing, and not just about catching A fish.
If you wonder why, then you won't be stuck with the HOW.. you will most probably create your own "HOW", your own method of putting your WHY into existence..and this is what will really make you unique.
Once again.. this is just my take on things.

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:

However, I'm also in favour of accuracy. At least as far as claims made by the authorities are concerned, because if they're permitted to mislabel things during a period when emotions are, with good reason, high; they'll use that inaccuracy for their own ends at a later date.

A warhead filled with chemical agents that cause people's faces to fall off in their hands is a weapon of mass destruction.

The man played a whole range of characters, from Smee (Hook) to Khrushchev (Enemy at the Gates) but he'll probably be remembered (and envied by those of us with a looser grip on reality) for his role as Eddie Valiant, the LA gumshoe from Who Framed Roger Rabbit whom the badly-drawn Jessica bounced off, slunk around and serenaded.
For that, I think we'll all forgive him for Mario Bros.
Bobby Chiu's 4 keys to setting good goalsGOOOAAALS! The World Cup is the perfect time to talk about goals.Bobby Chiu's 4 keys to setting good goals6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Setting good goals is useful to not just artists but anyone who wants to achieve something.
When I graduated college and started my career, my goals were unfocused. Basically, I just wanted to get a job doing what I love, which in my case is of course drawing and painting. That was my whole goal. I didn't aim for anything more than that, and as a result, my career went nowhere.
Then, after reflecting on my career and examining the careers of people I admired (again, not just artists), I developed a master plan for my success that basically boiled down to four things:
1. Recognize the importance of setting goals.
Let's say you have the extraordinary ability to kick a ball farther and more accurately than anyone you know. As a result, you want to become a soccer player. But then when you're on the soccer pitch and the ball comes to you, you just kick it as hard as you can in what
