Devious Journal EntryThat doesn't look right. Something off about her eyebrows. No...maybe it's her forehead. Nope...it's her hairline. Gotta be. It's too low. Or too high maybe. CRAP! Something's off, but I cant figure out what. You know...it could be her jaw line. Too wide. Nope. Now it's too narrow and her face looks long. Put that back, but the chins definitely too big. Makes her look manish. Yeah, that's it..that's working! But...now her mouth looks a little weird. The lips are too big or something. Damn it, why did I try to make her smiling? I can never get that to look right. But she needs to be smiling..it works for the piece. You know what, fuck it I'm starting over.Devious Journal Entry4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Nickelodeon's changing job requirements...Looks like Nickelodeon is easing up on their usual policy of 3-5 years experience needed for storyboarding jobs. I know that always frustrates new artists trying to get in to the field. A new job post separates the requirements into "Basic Quaifications" (which I assume means that they're required) and "Desired qualifications" (Which sounds to me like its preferred, but not a deal-breaker). Now they desire only 1 year of experience, but they add: "and/or training on a similar show; or equivalent combination of education and experience." The bottom line is that studios just want someone good and reliable, but they don't want to swim through an ocean of amateurish portfolios from people that are clearly not prepared for the job.Nickelodeon's changing job requirements...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

YOUR IDEAS HAVE VALUE!!I have to kind of make a post about this subject since it comes up a lot in discussionsYOUR IDEAS HAVE VALUE!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Your art has worth! it does not need marketing or any kind of promotion . Even your ideas have value too. So companies and people trying to take advantage of such things is simply not right and we as artists need to change.
If you spend hours and hours honing your skills as an artist. Then people shouldn't assume that you are willing to give that away for free.
All the time I get a message for people asking for free work , or work that I won't get paid for now, but they will promote my website. I do not need help promoting myself. I can handle that quite well on my own. ( FUNNY PART IS I NEVER PROMOTED MY ART AT ALL I JUST DID IT AND I GOT BETTER AND MORE PEOPLE BEGAN TO LOOK AT IT MORE AND MORE, I DID ART AND PUT IT ON A WEBSITE , NOTHING MORE) People also do the kick-starter thing. They say we cannot pay but if your project gets funded we can pay you after.

Hey what's up guys! Its been a while but I'm back to stay!
There was a good reason for my absence...
As some of you who are following me on facebook might know, my girlfriend and I were expecting and my daughter was born a few weeks ago. This has been the single best moment of my life so far and we've been very very lucky everything has gone so perfect.
With all of that going on, painting was the last thing on my mind but now that I've settled into this new life as a dad, the urge is coming back and I'm going to be painting a LOT more.
I'm going to start a series of tutorials on Youtube where I'll explain everything character related from a beginner's level up to more advanced stuff. This will be a weekly thing and I'll be releasing the first one this week.
What I've been doing so far are just timelapses of regular paintings and while I'll still make these, my goal with the tutorial series is to target ce

I am someone who might be called a "cineaste" - because it's true. I friggin' LOVE movies. I love watching them, collecting them, doing research, listening to audio commentaries and learning about the backgrounds. And i always had a soft spot for animated motion pictures. Still do. Disney is awesome, so is Dreamworks and the not so wellknown ones.
Lately i went through my DVD-Collection once more and...i just realised again how MUCH i despise the awful covers that go along with most of the animated movie DVD releases. Especially when i recall the original theatrical posters - which are all (design wise) of sheer BRILLIANCE, full of power and emotion and actually dignify the movie's content. Not to be compared with the cheap DVD covers. Little comparison for you to see what i mean - because i felt like doing one.

7 TIPS FOR THE 21-YEAR-OLD ME by Bobby Chiu
When I was a student in college working on my skills as a character designer, I’d had periods where I would sit at my desk working as hard as I could but having little to show for my efforts at the end of the day. I remember sitting there surrounded by blank pieces of paper, trying to come up with an amazing style that nobody had ever seen before. I would do one drawing and not be satisfied, so I would lay a new piece of paper over it, re-draw it with slight changes to features here and there. This would still not be good enough so I would put another piece of paper over my revision, make more minor adjustments trying to perfect this new style I was searching for.
I did this for weeks on end, tweaking and polishing over and over, working hard every day. But in the end, did I come up with a brand new style, something amazing that
Mario Kart 7This probably is one of the best Mario Kart games to date. There's a lot to cover so I'm gonna break it up into sections.Mario Kart 74 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Main Game
If you know Mario Kart, you know what to expect. Nintendo characters racing around colorful crazy courses throwing objects at each other. The overall gameplay here is pretty much the same Mario Kart we know and love, but all the little minute tweaks to the gameplay are just amazing. The 3D effect works great and is probably one of the best uses of it for a 3DS game.
New features include the ability to hang glide and drive while underwater. Both work exceptionally well and keep the pace of the game flowing. Hang gliding itself takes a bit of work to figure out the sweet spot and adds a certain level of strategy. Sometimes it's better to float down right away to get back onto the track, and sometimes it's better to hang back and float longer to get to secret paths.
The fireball and Tanooki tail are new powerups. Both are timed so you need to use them qui

3DS Ambassador DownloadsWhen the 3DS got a severe price drop only a few months after being released, Nintendo made it up to those who bought it early by enrolling them in "The Ambassador Program" which essentially gives those gamers 20 free games. The first batch of NES games was released a while ago, but the second batch of GBA games was just released today. So if you're part of the Ambassador program, go download them now!3DS Ambassador Downloads4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Predictions + Wii-U infoOn Announcing New ConsolesPredictions + Wii-U info3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is how it always goes. You announce your console at E3, then the following E3 you set a release date and it comes out. Since neither Microsoft or Sony announced a new console that means the earliest they will will be E3 2013 and the earliest still that the 720 and Ps4 will be released to the home market will be 2014.
Also it should be pointed out that the Ps4 will not be a power house. Sony has already confirmed that they aren't going to make the Ps4 a beast of a machine, having learned their lesson from the Ps3 which was too expensive at launch and wasn't able to compete against the Wii's price point and the 360's head start. Besides, at this point, graphics can only go so far and instead newer ways to play are what are going to decide the fate of the next gen console systems (as the Wii-U is already showcasing).
Microsoft has already confirmed as well that an updated Kinect device will be part of their next consoles too, so it's unlikely that th

Account SecurityOnce every week or so we here at CEA and the Helpdesk encounter a situation where someones account has been accessed by an intruder who has inflicted some sort of vandalism or locked out the owner completely.Account Security9 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
In this article Ill try to explain some basic security concepts and various schemes that intruders will use in an attempt to take advantage of carelessness.
Most victims of unauthorized access see their gallery deleted, their journals wiped out and often their password and email information is changed in order to lock out the rightful user. Many times the invaded account is used to break policy and wreak havoc about the site until it is banned.
In almost every case the victim has unwittingly helped the invader gain access through carelessness and poor habits. In those cases where a stranger has gained access it is usually due to poor log out habits or being caught in a phishing scheme.
Cases involving access by strangers is rare though- it is far more likely that a roo
