Screen Recording Program? Update: Help found!Screen Recording Program?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you everyone for your help. I really appreciate it!
I found a super great help from M4dArtist, who gave me a super detailed instruction that answered all of my possible questions. Couldn't dream for more hahah.
I will go ahead trying out what she gave me there. Hopefully I'll have some vids to show you guys soon!
As many people have shown interest in seeing speedpainting/timelapse videos from me, I think I will try it out.
However I am not so sure which screen recording program I should use.
I want something that's easy to use, but on the other hand also have editing options, have no watermark and such.
I downloaded CamStudio installer, but it asked me to install many extra things that I obviously don't want to install. I just want to install the damn program. orz
So if you can give me a source to download safe installers, I'd highly ap
A big black hole called: Procrastination.Procrastination is an infinite cycle that becomes bigger and bigger the longer it's there and the time wasted being sucked into it is a dark matter of nothing.A big black hole called: Procrastination.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
hahah I figured this was the most dramatic way to put it, but yeah, it's real and it sucks.
For those who don't know what it means: Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time, sometimes to the "last minute" before the deadline.
We all suffer from procrastination. It is pretty innocent when you have it with household chores or packing your suitcase before you go on a holiday.
But it becomes a serious problem when you do it with the important things in your life. I take it you're an artist if you're reading this and the biggest aim of being an artist is to be an even better one.
As shown in previous journals there are many

Onto the good stuff. If you haven't been following me on Tumblr (where I've been talkin about it non stop) you may not know, me and my boyfriend Ichi are buying a house together. >v<d Buying... not renting! There is so much work that goes into buying a house rather than renting, it's nuts. Paper work... lawyers... oans.. mortgages... x o x Adult things. Haha
So we've been dealing with this for the past month and a half. We looked at many houses, and we were able to get the one we really wanted! I was super happy. We take possession of the house tomorrow and get the keys, so our move-in will start tomorrow. So much stuff to move. So exciting ; w ;
As far as my art goes... I will be converting one of the main rooms into my own personal art studio. ;; w ;;

Back from surgery (again)!Sooo.. I had yet another surgery yesterday.Back from surgery (again)!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I wasn't even expecting it! I had a checkup planned yesterday to see how my pacemaker battery was doing, and the doctor told me I needed to have it replaced within the next two months before it dies.
(A pacemaker [via Wiki] is a medical device wired up to the heart that uses electrical impulses to regulate the beating of the heart. The primary purpose of a pacemaker is to maintain an adequate heart rate, either because the heart's natural pacemaker is not fast enough, or [in my case] there is a block in the heart's electrical conduction system.)
The doctor continued on asking me, "have you had anything to eat today?" in which I went.... "???"
I had only had two spoonfuls of yogurt that morning... and then she told me she was doing pacemaker operations that afternoon, and was able to get me in.
So I went in for a checkup and I came out from surgery with a new pacema

FINDING HAPPINESS ON DEVIANTART
If you want to get something out of it, put something into it. Visibility on deviantART is mostly a numbers game; there are so many users that unless you're interacting with others, even the highest-quality work may go nearly unseen. This advice sounds like a truism, but people seem to have difficulty understanding that no, their work is not some kind of miracle that breaks all the rules. Don't expect the community to fawn all over you for existing. You have to make them see you.
Don't expect the community to fawn over you, period. These people are usually your peers, but even if you don't think they are - they are not your buttmonkeys. Don't treat people that way.
The people who let you treat them terribly are not the ones you want. Some people will allow, and even encourage you to treat them like slaves. The
A quick guide in how to make a nice galleryI've seen many people, mostly young teenagers between 13-16, who rants in their journals about lack of feedback on their drawings.A quick guide in how to make a nice gallery3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many, if not all, of these people think it's because they aren't good enough in drawing to be the reason.
But you don't actually need to be a "god" at drawing to achieve feedback on your gallery.
A lot lies in how you display your deviations in your featured gallery-folder.
The first thing you have to ask yourself is:
"Am I here for the community, or to show my art?"
Because if you prefer being here just as an art-appreciator and get online-friends. Then you maybe don't care about your gallery so much.
But if you wanna get feedback on your art, improve, and get some watchers, you really need to show the internet that you are serious. And that is hard to achieve with a mediocre gallery.
So here comes a list of obvious "DO" and "DO NOT".
Expect that people will give you feedback in the first place.
Because they won't unless the

Our trip was Shanghai > Hangzhou > Nanjing > Suzhou > Wuxi > back to Shanghai. Then we went to Hong Kong on our own.
Oh yeah, first, since I have no photos of these (for good reason): THE SQUAT TOILETS. They suck. They stink. You can always tell if there's a bathroom nearby by the smell in the air! Half the time the flush doesn't even work. All the used toilet paper is tossed in a bin, so the smell just lingers and lingers. For some reason, sometimes they sell food right outside the bathrooms. LIKE WHY?! I don't know how anybody can think about eating with that smell there.
I drank as little as possible. Between my sis and I, we also brought 5-6 rolls of toilet paper, so it was more than enough. (We left the extra rolls at Grandma's in HK afterwards haha.)
Anyhoo, onto pictures...
From our place to China was a 12 hour flight, 4 hour break at airport, then

Why repetition pays off (minitut from tumblr)(this is all copypasta from my Tumblr. I post many minitutorials there, which I will sooner or later post on dA once I get the time and effort.)Why repetition pays off (minitut from tumblr)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Repetition is ALWAYS good. It will NEVER look good the first time, kids.
I practiced some gesture drawing, by using Glen Keane's sketches from Disney's Tarzan. This is the first reference:
This is one of many examples of why all artists tell you to "keep practicing and drawing".
And as you can see, even I need to repeat the same things a second time.
I made some notes to show you where I did wrong on the first example, scribbling down notes on your own studies is recommended. I mean, you can't keep everything in your head all the time.
Another, a bit more advanced, example:
Here's another try on Tarzans anatomy. This time it's not so much about the proportions that's wrong with the first picture - it is quite okay if we ignore the left arm.
However, what I find a bit wrong is that it has the wrong

1. What motivates you to create art? Write down your answer and think about how you can use this very important information.
2. What kinds of information have you been putting on the internet? The internet is the new resume. If I can find dumb pics or comments from you then other people can too...
3. Does your art express something interesting? Great art means something to its viewers, not just its creator.
4. Does failure push you forward? How you deal with failure will determine how skillfull you will become.
5. Do you enjoy arguing or flaming people's work? If you are the type of person to hate on others, it will come back to you. Especially with the internet and all the social networking.
6. Do you try out new methods/materials/subjects that might be unconfortable at first? Success is inevitable if you always choo
