Cave Johnson- Lemon rant"Alright, I've been thinking. When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade - make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am?

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
RIP Monty OumI know this is a bit late considering his date of passing. I've been so detached from the animation scene that it takes a long time for word to spread to me. In any case, a friend of mine brought to my attention that Monty Oum, famed for his Haloid and Dead Fantasy series passed away on the 1st of February. Aged 33.RIP Monty Oum4 months ago in Personal More Like This
This just..... deeply shocks and saddens me. That such a talented individual would pass at such a young age. Also, I feel his death is a little more personal to me. Believe it or not, around 7 or 8 years ago while I was still going by my Alvin-Earthworm persona, Monty contacted me directly through a PM telling me how my SMBZ series was what inspired him to take up animation. Sadly the PM's have been lost through the annals of time. But my old DeviantArt account was listed in the credits of Haloid. [link]
Granted he was far more talented in the field than I could ever hope to be, I still can't believe my fan series was one of

Some people asked me... Why do you still draw Ms Paint and not Photoshop? MS-Paint sucks and it will never get to the top rated digital-art category. Change your art program to new improved ones that doesn't suck.Some people asked me...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My Answer: Because MS-Paint has grown me from the very beginning of my digital drawing-hobby.
Two, It never sucks. MS-Paint is free... it always stayed at the accessories tab in windows.
Three, never underestimate the Ms-Painted Skilled artists. Anyone CAN draw with any program they want.
If Ms-Paint is like the underdog of digital-art world? (Then Imagine the Initial-D's Trueno AE86 and Takumi... just like MS-PAINT and Myself xD lol)
And if they want me to give up drawing, then HELL NO! >_
EuthanasiaDuring a recent conversation with a coworker – an amiable, yet inflexible christian – we addressed the topic of euthanasia. I will paraphrase what all I recall.Euthanasia9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Me: Do you think that euthanasia is ever the right thing?
Her: Well, no.
Me: If I had an inoperable disease, or I could only live by being attached to machines, I would want to be put down.
Her: It’s suicide. It’s wrong.
Me: It’s no way to live.
Her: I believe in miracles. You could miss out on a miracle if you don’t wait, & you’d go to hell if you commit suicide.
Me: . . .How about all the rain we’ve had lately.
When someone reveals that a belief in hell influences their thought processes, the conversation has reached its end. As an atheist, I would rely on evidence & facts; afterlife consequences are therefore inconsequential.

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

Nightmare City and FriendsStill stuck in college mode, so I'm still pretty inactive here. But I just wanted to show you guys these awesome Flash cartoons. I recommend watching the original flashes, since YouTube has terrible quality, even in HQ.Nightmare City and Friends6 years ago in Personal More Like This
These all seem to be about the same basic characters with the same basic design. (Notice how that scruffy brown one is in ALL OF THESE! Except for the 4Chan City animations.) But it looks like the animators took the basic idea and ran with it.
Chances are if you've seen any of these, it would be these flashes. I was completely entranced when I first saw these. To this day, they still amaze me beyond belief. To put it simply, these are CLASSICS!

SilenceHe wore his usual emotionless expression and didn't say a word. He refused to speak to anyone and would only say to his co-workers "get back to work. "Other than that he didn't say anything else. He only kept his eyes on his paperwork. At first sight this would seem normal of William, but those who know him and looked closely would know there was something bothering him. Something that was bringing him down, but he was trying to hide it. He's never been this silent before and some of the lesser known employees were taking note of it. He didn't care though and would only say that he's fine. That was far from the truth though.Silence8 months ago in Personal More Like This

But at the same time it's one of the most interesting things to draw, because... hey... we love making characters, and it's nice if they at least look a bit like a human being.

Drawing from life
Drawing from life is awesome!
Look for life drawing classes in your environment, or if they're not available; ask your friends to pose for you. Go have a drink in the city when the weather is nice, and sketch people passing by. There's nowhere you learn more about human anatomy than by observing and sketching real people. There's only one downside to this; dynamic poses are tricky, as it's hard for any model to hold a difficult pose for a long time.
And no... drawing (nearly) naked people in a drawing class isn't awkward. I

A Statement Worth MakingBeing 'Gay' is not wrong. There is no other statement I would rather just say in this journal. So here, I will state my facts and beliefs. You have a problem with it, keep it to yourself, because this is my opinion, and it will not be altered by others.A Statement Worth Making4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was appalled when my mother confessed to me that she was afraid how I would react to one of my very close realitives being a gay male. Then I realized how much of a bitch I was towards gays in the past when I was taught that anything but straight is wrong. I was even more thoroghly horrified when my father was proud that I was like that. Now, I may not be what society calls 'gay' (Though I am not sure, I haven't truelly found myself yet) I will stand up for each and every one of them. Some of these 'social outcasts' are my best friends, and if you think I am doing this to just follow the crowd you are wrong.
I have a gay character, and no, he is not a joke, he is not just a toy who when I get bored I like to write about be
