it's World Suicide Prevention Dayand I'd be lying if I didn't say that I am a wreck.it's World Suicide Prevention Day9 months ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who may be unaware, back in January a friend of mine killed herself. She was an internet friend but a damn good one and one who I miss more than I want to admit.
Chelsea was one who supported my writing from the moment I joined Fanfiction.net. She introduced me to Markiplier, who continues to be one of my biggest inspirations to this day. She would constantly assure me that I mattered in this world. Chelsea was a good fucking person and she didn't deserve the shit she went through. Near the end of her life, we'd lost touch a bit and didn't talk as much as we used to. My iPod's facetime stopped working so that was useless, and I just kind of stopped knowing what to say to her so I opted for nothing at all most weeks.
I regret that so much. If I had messaged her more, would she still be here? If I had told her how much she meant to me more than I did, would she have swallowed those pills? Maybe. I don't know.

Exercise 16:The Skillful HuntsmanTHIS WEEK's EXERCISE POST: THE FULL POST AND DETAILSExercise 16:The Skillful Huntsman1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The first exercise of 2014 is creating a concept of the Skillful Huntsman. This is based on a study first done from Scott Robertson and his book of the same name. The goal is to push students still learning and refining their skills farther and more into a streamline mindset of creating concept art!
EXERCISE: Create your own interpretation concept art of the character: the Huntsman.
GOAL: To challenge yourself and work on a pre-given concept similar to a concept artist working in the industry.
As a concept artist you’re job is to take all the information given mixed with the inspiration of the story and the stored references you have gathered throughout your life to create some concept work! Sometimes (if not m

'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi

Make a new scrap deviation, this will be your rough draft. Start writing it and link it back here so I know when to look at it. You can link even if you only have an opening paragraph and continue to add to it, alerting us as many times as you like during the week.
In your previous scrap that has your outline and your sources, start taking note of the things you come up against while writing your story. What didn’t you research yet that you – oops – just figured out that you needed? Write it down. This list will be integral to week 4’s lesson.

HetaOni's ending/plotThe Holy Roman Empire is behind it all. It was the ruins of his old 'house' that the gang decided to screw themselves over with, that Italy subconsciously remembered and decided to go visit. Since he had disappeared, people had been coming to visit his old house and he didn't like that, so he had set up several booby traps with horrible alien-monsters to ward them off. When he realized that Italy would finally be coming back to him he was overjoyed but realized that since he didn't 'exist' anymore it would be very difficult to materialize back at his old house. Then he realized that Italy didn't really want to be in his house, mostly because of the misunderstanding that the alien monsters were trying to kill him. So instead he sent the alien-monsters to capture him and take him, but just as in old times he proved to be elusive and couldn't be caught. Unfortunately in the process the single-minded alien monsters had killed all his friends, causing Italy great grief. The last alien-monstHetaOni's ending/plot3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Storyboard Revisionist Portfolio TipsEven if you’re just starting out to be a revision artist, the most important items in your portfolio will be your storyboard samples. The main reason why is that the studio will be looking for someone that they know can eventually grow and develop into the role of a full storyboard artist. The only way you can demonstrate that is to have a few samples in your portfolio.Storyboard Revisionist Portfolio Tips3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A storyboard revisionist is much more than a cleanup artist; they have to know how storyboards and film language work — a director might ask a revisionist to “restage this sequence and make it work.” A revisionist has to be well-versed in the art of storyboarding to interpret that kind of vague and common request (I ask my crew to do this sort of thing all the time).
Many artists that are just starting out don’t have any storyboard samples, but there is a surefire remedy for that: Go make some

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 Muse1 year 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

average pay rates for comic book artists:"Generally, the good graphic novels fetch $100 - $300 per page, although professionals who have been in the industry for a long time can command as much as three times that amount. In fact, one elite illustrator commanded as much as $1,000 a page (on a 22-page comic book)! Most of the popular titles that artists, like David Cassaday, work on are monthly issues, which end up providing him with a six-figure salary. The back-end royalties on merchandise, trade paperbacks and movie royalties are also generous."average pay rates for comic book artists:2 years ago in Personal More Like This
