DA's Insular Taste PhenomenonIt's been quite a while since I wrote a preachy "THINK ABOUT YO' ART"-type journal, and some of my newer watchers may not know that this is a particular(ly annoying) habit of mine. This is a subject I've had on my mind for quite some time for a number of reasons, and it's recently coalesced into a semi-soluble form so here we go. (As an aside- this journal does have some recycled ideas from a previous post of mine, but obviously I hadn't really said everything I wanted to on the subject.)DA's Insular Taste Phenomenon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's no mystery that I love this website. I came in at the tail end of the pre-critique wonder years, when the internet discovered and exploited that, yes, we don't always produce the highest quality art here. There's a lot of unpleasantness directed towards DeviantArt. At RISD, I made a point to never mention that I had an account here, because of the looks of disgust I would get haha and people would think about me differently. It was

Rembrandt's Self PortraitsCountless artists have used themselves as models. This, a lot of times, comes out of necessity and convenience, but there are plenty of other reasons why an artist might model for themselves.Rembrandt's Self Portraits2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Rembrandt van Rijn is the first artist I think of when talking about self portraits. (That could be because he's my favorite painter, but whatever ) Some sources say he made 60 self-portraits, others claim he did over 90. Whatever the number, it was a LOT.
The exact reason Rembrandt painted himself so often is unknown, but it has been speculated that perhaps, since he was struggling a lot of his life, he was the cheapest and most readily-available model; he often painted himself as someone else. Or maybe he was doing self-portraits to express his feelings at the time; he sometimes painted himself with a serious look on his face. Another theory is that self-portraits helped artists to be more well-known. There was no Facebook back then, you know. I
Being Critical =/= HateLooks like I need to remind people about this again, as yesterday I got several comments in a row from people who assumed that me being critical about something automatically translated into me outright hating it. I don't know how to stress this enough but that's not the case... You can be critical of stuff you like and not hate it. I don't know why our culture tries so hard to force everything into such black and white terms but come on guys, really... being critical and smart about what you love doesn't mean you hate it.Being Critical =/= Hate1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Take the Dragon's Crown comic, for example, in which I was critical of the Sorceress's design. From that someone hypothesized that I must HATE the game, and that's farthest from the truth. I know full well that Vanillaware is an amazing studio and they do fantastic work. One of my favorite games of theirs is Muramasa the Demon Blade. Dragon's Crown has scored really highly and it's most definitely worth your money to buy/download it if you can. BUT... I can still be

Educating OurselvesThis journal contains a lot of potentially buzz-work things that could result in arguments from people who don't take the time to read my message. For example I mention Anita Sarkeesian, but I don't want people to start arguing against her points of view because that's NOT what this journal is about. So please, read carefully before you respond to help avoid knee-jerk reactions since that's exactly what this journal is about trying to AVOID.Educating Ourselves1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years I’ve had a pretty straightforward view on gun control. Guns are dangerous and need to be restricted and made more inaccessible to prevent future acts of gun violence. I’ve never genuinely believed in the idea of banning all guns because I do think people DO need to have ways to protect themselves.
However, I’ve recently been thinking more about a different aspect to the gun control debate and it’s broader implications to other troublesome politically charged areas of our (United States) cult
Out of CharacterHey guys. THis is a pretty big topic, and it's one that constantly gets brought up here, but the problem as a whole has never been addressed. Time to rectify that.Out of Character1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Now, this was something that occured to me while I was reading :iconlaviarray:'s analysis of the comic as a whole, concerning the way Flynn writes. In my opinion, every single story would be perfectly fine... if he was writing about his own characters and not a cast who have mostly been established already. Basically, he's a fine story-writer, but he isn't a good character writer.
All too often in the comics, we see a character get shafted for the sake of the plot. In this case, it's a story that couldn't work if the character was acting normally, so they have to be derailed in order to make the story work. This, my friends is not how you write a story.
The thing with writing is that you have to make the story fit the characters, not the other way around. With OCs, it's fine. You made them, so you can shape their personaliti

Alex Vondran is a private investigator, ambitious and arrogant, money is just one of his weaknesses. Always self-centered and hot-headed since the first chapters, Alex changes a lot when he meets Kevin Stone, apparently a sloppy nerd with a huge moral, who is, on the contrary, a thief and a computer hacker. Alex boss has asked him to investigate on Kevin and Alex understand that Kev is exactly the person who damaged the Multinational Company of his boss.
The problem is that Alex is starting to feel 'something' for that guy: Kevin is his first friend and he trusts him… So Alex decides to run away with Kevin and then he starts a war a lot bigger than him.
A specialist's hired from Alex's boss to kill Alex and Kevin. Kevin has stolen a huge amount of money from the multinational banks, and Alex has helped him to escape. When the killer is near to Kevin, the guy emanated a huge and paranormal shock wave.
Sonic reboot: what else is there to say.I've given up on the comics as you know. Though I thought about picking up as Ian would leave...nope, the damage is too big. Ian has butchered the characters and plots beyond believe, the continuity is so over the place you could swear a dozen hurricanes went through it and sega puts too much mandates. The comic is repaired beyond belief.Sonic reboot: what else is there to say.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not to mention the latest genesis wave was a very lazy, not to mention disrespectful way of rebuilding the universe. It's not a reboot, it's changing things up randomly in the hopes of undoing a mess only to make it a bigger mess! Some storylines that should have had conclusions didn't get one! I hate the Mecha Sally arc, but at least I hope that they would find at least something of a conclusion instead of...

To keep this from being too long, I'll be brief and only review one or two issues at times. Since 222 comes after 221 and was completely pointless, I'll just review Issue 221.

basically i've been thinking of a conflict for the LOAF series and i came up with something!
So, the cottage Haylu lives in is a small Michigan condo next to the Michigan Lake. However, there is still danger that lives nearby the happy go lucky house.
There are creatures that live outside a sort of "force-field" of the house. These dark monsters represent Haylu's depression and anxiety. They cannot pass through the forcefield, but can damage it. The only possible areas vulnerable to them are far from the house, down into the forest path or in the trails. (i will make a map later)
These creatures act like ghouls, they can enter Haylu when she is open and it will drain all her happiness and emotions out. It is the job of the characters in the cottage to protect her from them at all costs. The creatures can also take the form of the other characters, however, not identical. They will still have a shadowy, evil and om

I was checking out I-Call-Bull when I saw a screenshot posted by Danerboots of a kid claiming to be 13 years old who says she is "part lesbian" (derp) and "has a fetish" for raping Pixar's Cars OC's and cybering over comment threads.
What. The. Fuck.

---> This is what the rampant fetish culture here on dA teaches kids is OK to do. Because sexual material and fetishes saturate this community so thoroughly, I really don't think kids as young as 13 should be here (or anywhere on the internet for that matter). It's almost ridiculous that this site isn't 18+ only, though I doubt that this kid is even 13.
Another disgusting thing about Flynn's writing.I felt like getting this off of my chest, so please bear with me if it's a big long.Another disgusting thing about Flynn's writing.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, as :iconarchiesoniclulz: mentioned awhile ago, the thing that angered him about Flynn's writing was the most is the cold and basically heartless attitude of the heroes towards the chaos going on in Mobius, and that I'll admit is the #1 thing that angers me too.
However, the next thing that irritates me to no end is this: Forcing certain scenarios to happen for mere shockvalue.
And let me tell you, this is one of the most irritating, if not insulting thing to see in any form of media. Now, I love intriguing story plots as much as the next person, but I want it to happen naturally, or at the very least, flow smoothly, not be shoved in like a square peg in a circle ho;e.
There are sadly too many to mention, so I'll instead mention the most glaring ones.
Let's start with one of the most obvious examples Flynn forcing the issue: Sonic and Tails fight in 178-179.
