Simple Q&A!Simple Q&A!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Q: What is a Shimeji?
A: Shimeji (しめじ) is a little desktop buddy that roams your screen. The original site actually calls it "the world's most useless mascot", which will probably give you a idea of it's purpose. It is a cute, but also useless program. Not to be confused with the mushroom, which you can find here.
Q: Is a Shimeji available for Mac users?
A: No, not yet, sorry. Yes!
Q: What does a Shimeji do?
A: They sit randomly, walk and crawl about your monitor, and sometimes double themselves with or without your permission. Sometimes if you minimize a window, your Shimeji may try to take it away.
Q: What does the Shimeji Menu say?
A: It says this, in order:
"Add one" - Click this and one more Shimeji will appear. The more times you click it, the more Shimejis you get.
"Come here!" - All of the Shimeji will run over to your mouse

4 Kinds of StorytellingHere's an old journal from 2010 about storytelling. Because I have a lot more readers these days, I think I'm going to start reposting some of my earlier posts for my newer audience. So for you old timers, feel free to skip.4 Kinds of Storytelling1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In full disclosure, I slightly edited this journal to make it a little more balanced (while also fixing a ton of typos).
I feel like the word "storytelling" gets thrown around a lot in our industry. Yet when I look out there at some comics, I don't always see a lot of evidence for it.
It feels like people in comics pros--myself included--often use the word only because we feel like we're supposed to. Over the years enough professionals have been accused of being poor storytellers to the degree that everyone is now afraid of being a pinup artist as opposed to a bona fide storyteller. But it's not enough just to claim you're a storyteller.

galaco Project by YAMAHASo it looks like YAMAHA is planning something for galaco, I guess they listened to the fans and she's not dying, either way here is her new voice update demo, details on the project are still very sketchy at the moment.galaco Project by YAMAHA1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Currently she's 60% completed and she's a collaborative project with YAMAHA and Stardusters, a company that previously labeled galaco's album "galaco SUPER BEST" which was sold only at Kou's recent live tour (Kou is galaco's voice provider).

10 day character challengeHello watchers, fellow deviants, and passersby!10 day character challenge1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In the past I've considered making these funny challenges and stuff, but just haven't thought of a good one until now!
Recently, I was browsing my deviantWATCH and I came across mothofo's recently submitted picture of a new character she created, which I instantly fell in love with. I asked her, at first jokingly, how she always comes up with so many lovely ideas-- and she told me her inspiration this time around had come from ice cream flavors.
After a bit of thought, I considered trying this out-- and made a fairly successful two characters (one of which I recently uploaded).
A lot of people have asked me how I create my ocs, or continually make such lovely ocs... the answer to that isn't actually all that complicated-- I take inspiration from various objects, fashions, and cultures (or a combination of things!). This always results in something pretty successful!
At times some designs are completely random, but in a lot of cases,
Fans Start Petition To Save VOCALOID galacoIt has to my attention as an avid galaco fan that recently more and more people have started to realize about galaco's permanent deactivation on October 31st. Yes, it's true, you won't ever be able to use galaco after the 31st, reason being is YAMAHA, creator of VOCALOID and handlers of galaco, made it so that people who won her in her contest used serial codes to allow use of her. These serial codes would expire after a certain amount of time and you would have to e-mail YAMAHA for a new one. A couple of months ago YAMAHA would announce that they would no longer be giving out serial codes and they can't make a permanent one, that means she would be shutting down permanently October 31st and there would be no way to (legally) obtain her and use her after that date. The project team announced that they would try to figure something out for galaco and announce something before the 31st, but there are no guarantees of her continuation as YAMAHA said they are unable to sell her the wFans Start Petition To Save VOCALOID galaco1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Blender Tip: Managing Large ScenesSo, what happens when a scene grows large?Blender Tip: Managing Large Scenes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
- The scene can become confusing and selecting the correct object(s) can be tricky.
- Frame rate will drop, notably when using 'complex' modifier stacks, using 1000+ objects (depending on your hardware), using complex geometry (many faces/vertices).
The quick fix would be to collapse modifier stacks and merge objects. But this isn't very helpful - what if you want to make changes to these objects later?
Here is a single tip that will help you create large scenes using Blender: group objects and link groups across files. This means that, one file ('large scene') will use grouped objects from one or several, other files. If one of the 'source files' is modified, the changes will be reflected to the target scene upon re-opening.
Group objects using CTRL+G
After creating a group, selecting any object that belongs to the group will pop the group in this object's properties under the... Groups tab. Typically this is where you edit the group n
