Friends Should, Friends Shouldn'tDISCLAIMER: This is not meant to be taken as "rules" to constrict friendships. These are merely guidelines from my own observations for healthy relationships. Friends will make mistakes and friends will fight, this does not make your friends bad people.Friends Should, Friends Shouldn't1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Friends Should: Understand that life and other things get in the way sometimes.
Friends Shouldn't: Expect you to pay a certain amount of specific attention to them consistently despite what's going on in your life.
Friends Should: Always pick up right where they left off whether it's been days, weeks, months, or years.
Friends Shouldn't: Give you a hard time about not talking to them when they didn't even bother to tell you they were upset about it until they exploded from bottling it up.
Friends Should: Be honest and trust each other.
Friends Shouldn't: Withhold feelings and qu
Obsolete InkingLately I've been doing work for DC Direct--the wing of DC in charge of statues, toys, etc. It's been a nice break from PRJ. The money is good, and it hasn't been soulless like I imagined. Corporate gigs can go either way--sometimes they want you to do exactly what "they" want, other times they want you to do your thing unencumbered. Luckily this was the latter.Obsolete Inking3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The rates for toy designs are broken down into three parts: you get paid for the sketches, the final pencils and the inks. For this gig, the inking rate was higher than my normal inking rate. It felt good, but then I realized that 25% of my fee was for inks. And it raised an unsettled concern that's been on my mind.
How long will inkers be needed?
In the old days they needed inkers because computers weren't yet being used in print. I forget the name of the machine that preceded the scanner (process cameras?), but it was low-tech enough that i

Pacific RimPlotPacific Rim2 years ago in Personal More Like This
An alien rift opens up in the pacific ocean and giant monsters start pouring out. After failing to stop them with our usual tanks and planes, the world unites to make giant mech robots punch the monsters to death. Because the robots are so big and complex, controlling them alone is too intense for a single human brain to comprehend. So mech robots are piloted by two crew members who mind meld with each other to share the power load. The better in-synch the pilots are with each other, the better the robots perform. The movie follows the events as monster outbreaks increase and a last ditch effort to close the portal is put into motion.
There is a LOT to get through in the movie in terms of world building. Sometimes so much so that you don't get a chance to absorb it all in. Likewise, since there's so much going on the characters don't get very developed either. Outside the 3 main characters, the rest of the characters are simplified ste

Artists Are Difficult"As a rule, artists are difficult - to say the least! Their emotions are more intense. Their egos are either enormous, or just the opposite, but they are never balanced. Artists love and hate and hardly ever feel neutral. Their enthusiasm is exaggerated. They recognize beauty faster. They are more sensitive in connection with other people's suffering. Their intellect keeps them from ever being boring to other people. Their jealousy tortures them day and night. They give more than they consume. In short, if you want a smooth existence, keep away from the art world. But if you want to really live - meaning suffer and burst out of joy - become involved with artists! You will never fade away; you will just die of exhaustion."Artists Are Difficult11 months ago in Personal More Like This

All of you folks who read this for free here on dA owe a massive thank you to those who actually funded it. While you read it for free, they paid to make it happen, and I'm endebted to them. They are the best.
I promised that you guys here on dA would always have it for free here and I will honour that promise. I'll let you know when I feel it's the right time to do that.
As it stands now, I have sunk so much of my own funds into this project that I cannot afford to do it anymore even with the help of my Patrons on the patreon site.
Some of you might think that I can just work 24 hours a day, and that money grows on trees, and that I don't have mouths to feed. The truth is that I didn't have much work from UDON over the last few months, I have been coasting along on what i had saved, and now I have no more.

That I reveal what many might characterize as weakness.
I express empathy.
I am ready to embrace change - not just in physical circumstances, but in what I know (or think I know) about everything.
I admit to flaws, worries, and concerns.
I will say when I am hurt.
I will express it when I am frustrated, sad or a little lost.
To me it's about authenticity - and right now I feel we need this more than ever, not just across all media, but in how we interact with each other.
Division is everywhere, and this is what keeps us mindlessly busy - the pointless minutia of day to day life and living.
I will not be changing any time soon.
I will keep on saying it as I see it, with eyes and ears open.
I will keep on trying to understand what it is about guns and faith that so captivates so many people - there are just as many good people who do not need either in their lives, so it is a questi

Passive Voice vs Active VoiceHello everyone!Passive Voice vs Active Voice1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
You've probably already read some of this week's wonderful journals on audience and beginning a story, and you're also probably wondering what exciting topic I've brought for you today. I suppose I'll tell you instead of keeping you in the dark.
Passive Voice vs Active Voice
I can see you're all excited.
To begin this article, I'll start by defining exactly what passive and active voice are.
With active voice, the agent (the person or thing carrying out the action) is the subject:
Harry ate six shrimp at dinner.
John opened the door.
Sue changed the flat tire.
There are two different types of passive voice constructions. In

I Was Not Ready For This
What did I just sign myself up for?
I had never made, drawn, written, or created a book in my life, so this was all pretty foreign to me. I had told Heavy Metal publishing I'd do it on my own dime. Reason was, this was my project.
Not that I can't cooperate or collaborate, but this time I wanted to create what I saw in my head, and not have a voice behind me telling me what to do and what not to do. Kevin Eastman, head of HM Pub, was incredibly generous in this decision and told me to lead the way, and I tried my damnest.
So I started with the obvious fundamentals. What is the story of LMS?
Now, as a whole, LMS's simple logline is incredibly simple. A man who gets framed for a crime he didn't commit, breaks out of prison and goes after those
