Zeviant FartThere's nothing more I can add to the debate/communal rant currently taking place that has not already been said, other than repeat my opinion that, if something requires explanation, it's not art. This is doubly so when it comes to a logo, which is supposed to convey a message by way of a simplified image, be that message a name or a graphical representation of purpose and/or meaning.Zeviant Fart1 year ago in Personal More Like This

The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.Concept art is getting bigger and bigger. More people know what it is nowadays, it gets shown in the media more often and more books get released. This automatically results into more people wanting to become concept artists. So many artschools are now creating special courses all towards game art or concept art. (Game art can also include UI design, 3D modeling etc.).The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yet it is a fairly new thing to most people and the idea of "becoming a concept artist" has grown rapidly over such a short time that a lot of people who are new to it seem to get a lot of misguide info. I am going to try to list this misguided info and direct you to the correct info.
(Again I would always advise you to do your own research and form your own knowledge and not just simply agree with what you read online, not from anyone, not from me. Even though i'm right .. ofcourse. *wink *wink )

Thanks for your note warning me about the dangers of Creative Commons. I'm afraid though I'm going to have to disagree with you and your views on this subject. Aside from my graphic artistic creations, I'm also a published author of two science-fiction novels.

Further emphasizing that the contest is not for drawing her existing outfits. Hopefully it's less likely to happen again, and I'm sorry to those who mistook it for that. I wanted to contest to be more even and judged based on something other than strictly her likeness or drawing ability, so a design-related contest seemed like a fairer option. Character design is a bit less of a subjective skill to judge on than picking apart drawing ability. Hopefully that comes across as the results come in.Added a few relevant questions from the comments to the FAQ.

How to become a better artist?
First consider this: no one is gonna help you but you. What it means - don't expect someone will guide you or help you to become a better artist. Doesn't matter if you go to an art school or taking classes. The school may help you by whipping your ass and beat some discipline into your lazy self but it won't help you in the long run... think of it as a springboard or rocket booster. It helps you to get off of the ground but then you have to fly it all by yourself.
Remember, you are the key. Not me, not your pals, not those long dead masters... no one will take you up to the top. We may help you by showing you the path but you have to walk it all by yourself. Oh and there's no elevators whatsoever. Make sure you've a tight rope and good ice-pick.
The important thing is: know what you want. Why do you want to get better? Why

I'm really grateful for this opportunity, and I'll do my best to make all of our fans proud.
Wish me luck!
Well I'm back home in Massachusetts now after a long day of travel. Bruce and I got to meet with 2 people from CN, they were both really awesome and very nice, even the room we met in was chic and cool, definitely not the formal boardroom setting I was expecting.
Honestly I'm not sure if I did a good job presenting the series or not. I think they were intrigued by the action/comedy blend of the series, and liked the school setting as it's relatable to viewers. They definitely seemed interested in the fact that this series has more female fans than male fans, and that we've achieved this level of succ

Steampunk Windows 7 ThemeA wonderful Steampunk theme for Windows 7 has been created by a chap named razorsedge. The theme includes a custom sound pack, custom cursors, an explorer frame, start button image, shell32 images and various wallpapers. Not all of this is uniquely created by Razorsedge, rather he has brought a lot of steampunk resources together from various artists/designers &c and using this resource he has created a theme. Razorsedge bundles all of my widgets into his theme so in return I offer his theme here. When used with my steampunk widgets and my icons you have a truly steampunk desktop. His theme bundles all of Samantha Wrights icons and uses some of Mordasius' work as well as wallpapers from other artists. He acknowledges their work and enhances it by providing a unique Windows 7 theme that changes the colours and appearance of such core functions as the taskbar, control panel, explorer and the date and time panel.

Found this on ZDNetOver the past few months I’ve been getting increasing amounts of feedback from people who have expressed an interest in Linux, taken the operating system for a test drive, but who then decided that it’s not for them. Here I’m going to share with you some of that feedback.Found this on ZDNet4 years ago in Personal More Like This
How times have changed. Wind the clock back a few years and people who were willing to take a Linux distro for a spin were few and far between. Nowadays, partly down to how easy it is to try a Linux distro (download the ISO file, burn a disc and boot up off of it) and partly thanks to the recession, people do seem to be taking the time to try out this operating system.
As someone who writes a fair bit about Linux, I get a lot of feedback from users. I also seem to get more than my fair share of people venting their frustrations at me, partly in hope that I’ll help them, and partly because they just feel they want to vent at someone.
So, what I’ve done here is gone through the Linux-r

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.

Miyazaki vs OtakuIn case you haven’t heard this, renowned Japanese animation icon Hayao Miyazaki was quoted as saying that the reason the anime industry is suffering is because it’s overrun with “otaku.”Miyazaki vs Otaku2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You can read the full article here: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2014-01-30/miyazaki/the-problem-with-the-anime-industry-is-it-full-of-otaku
Naturally, such a high profile artist such as Miyazaki coming down hard on Otaku has offended a lot of people and a bit of backlash has sprung up because of it. I’d like to try and reassure some of you that it’s not as bad as it might sound, and here’s why (please keep in mind this is from an American perspective).
“Otaku” in Japan is (or was) an offensive word, usually embodying the worse traits of obsessive basement dwelling collection completing socially inept geeks. It gained widespread negative connotations after the 1989 “Otaku Murders” carried out by Tsutomu Miyazaki (which are to
