I don't translate my work. Being a perfectionist, I would be at it for days trying to get one damn page right. And I just don't have that time. I'm sorry for the Spanish speaking watchers who only understand that language and can't read english. Really, I am.
But when you demand that I translate my work in a threatening tone or come and suggest that you translate it for me by posting my work on dA WITHOUT my permission first, that's when I get upset.
The Seer was bad enough, people doing it on other dang sites. Do not make me delete Truffula Trove, guys.
I hate having to constantly go through dA to see who's copying what. I have NEVER ONCE asked someone to translate their spanish work for my desires. If I was desperate to read it, I would type it into an online translator and read it that way. Or copy and paste. Sure, it's not the most accurate way, since you need to pay for the really good translators, but at least I can

Sorry I haven't been around much lately. I think I need time away from the internet. Both to relax and to brush up on my artwork. I am genuinely sick of all the hate surrounding my namesake online, and when I say "genuinely," I mean it. The stress that the recent resurgence of trolling I've gotten has caused me to be quite ill. I know I shouldn't let what anonymous people on the internet say about me get to me, but it does. I need time to recuperate, to spruce and fix up SYAC, and to get back to a point where I genuinely enjoy drawing again. Right now there's no love or passion in my artwork, and it's mostly because of my defeated attitude: "Why bother, they'll just tear it apart anyway."
That whole "project positive" has been a complete bust too. I failed to live up to the idea, and in the process got really sick. I guess trying to force out a constant positive attitude like that was a mistake.

Mature themes in American AnimationWhen I first discovered Anime, my mind was blown. Here were Japanese animations being made which told adult stories with sex, violence, and all sorts of things I'd never seen before done in American films. As a teenager the constant pandering to children and the reluctance to accept more mature themes and ideas in American animated films pissed me off. Why can't american cartoons be taken more seriously and have stuff for adults too outside of South Park and The Simpsons?Mature themes in American Animation in Personal More Like This
In 1998 Stephen Spielberg tried to change that. After having a successful run of kids cartoons (Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, Pink and the Brain, etc), he took it a step further by giving us a PRIME TIME cartoon series aimed at adults. It was called "Invasion America." It was a sci-fi epic, featured a slew of big name actors including Leonard Nimoy, and featured more adult oriented themes such as sex, violence, and swearing!
It sucked and was a resounding failure.

Censoring the InternetA few weeks ago I made mention of feminist Anita Sarkeesian who started a kickstarter for a web series called "Tropes Vs Women" specifically centered around how women are portrayed in video games.Censoring the Internet in Personal More Like This
Despite the fact that kickstarters are payed for by people who've made the decision they want to contribute their money to the project, Anita came under attack from gamers for "scamming" audiences when her fund far exceeded the target goal.

Wounds, bruises, and blood gush out the more you beat her up in this virtual game, and it's drawn some widespread attention.
Whether you agree with her viewpoint is not the issue, it's the fact that this retaliation is just "wrong" on so many levels. Do these people realize that what they're doing is shooting themselves in the foot? Making a video game where you beat up someone who's making
Art help and podcastUnironic question about cartooning vs realismArt help and podcast in Personal More Like This
A few days ago I asked for help with a drawing and i got a load of great advice. However, while taking the advice a lot of it helped reinforce a notion that frustrates me. The idea that "greater detail and anatomy = better products." Whenever I get criticism for my artwork, the general notion that I get is that people want me to make art more realistically, with greater sense of detail, lighting, perspective, and anatomy. And while I agree I need to work on all those aspects... I have qualms about being pushed in that direction. I like making cartoony drawings, so at what point do you cut off the realism in favor of being more cartoony? Why is being cartoony more frowned upon or seen as being lazy? One person in the threat that was helping me mentioned that while I did good on the artwork in question, I need to take the info with a grain of salt and be careful not to let people steer me towards being a realistic artist if cartooning
Internet BullyingFor many kids growing up in the 80's, if you were bullied in school you were able to "tough it out" because you knew your social interaction with said bully was isolated only to when you were in close proximity of them. When the bell range and you went home, you could dismiss the bully's taunting and physical abuse and be reminded of friends and family who supported you and kept your spirits up.Internet Bullying in Personal More Like This
But in today's day and age of seemingly constant online connectivity, the "victims" of bullying have a harder time escaping. Once the bell rings, they're still potentially subject to be bullied via verbal assaults online, which often goes completely unnoticed by parents and friends. The worse part of this is that we're often told that because it happens "on the internet" there's no real consequences of trolling or bullying, which is far from true.
I've never accepted the excuse that just because "it happens on the internet" means it can't personally harm you in real life. Part of that is from m

Artist Intent vs Fan CriticismsThis has been a subject I've been interested in for years, and one which I personally struggle with on a near constant basis: Artist's intent versus fan criticisms. Before we begin I just want to make this clear that this journal is NOT about "ignoring criticisms" or any sort of endorsement of such an action. I'm gonna be accused of it, of course, but I just wanted to get that out of the way right now.Artist Intent vs Fan Criticisms in Personal More Like This
As I've been observing fan interactions over the years I've noticed a severe increase in a sense of entitlement: IE: that if you love something enough you have a "right" to force the creators to change their content to suit your personal preferences. We saw this play out to the extremes this past summer with the Mass Effect 3 ending debacle, and we see it play out to a much lesser extent here on DA quite a bit.

Like most people, I'm a fan of a lot of things. However I don't often wade deep into fandoms themselves. For example, I like MLP:FiM, but I wouldn't call myself a hardcore Brony by any stretch of the imagination, as is evident by my continued botches of cutie mark colors (something no hardcore fan would EVER screw up).
Part of the reason I don't delve too far into fandoms is because fans can get very... emotional... about their given fandom. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it can sometimes be a crutch. I like a variety of series, but I'm not gonna throw a tantrum because of an episode name, or an animation mistake, like some people do. I don't like how angry or defensive fandoms can get sometimes, and for the most part I think people need to just calm down and relax and not be so standoffish.
Fans are, for the most part, good people who are just enthusiastic about a show or series. Just try to keep that enthusiasm from dipping into the negative side of thing

UPDATE #1: my brain finally caught up after the initial shock and I realized that even though I got the news via email from a good friend, no sources were mentioned besides Genndy Tartakovsky and Lauren Faust answering to fans' questions about it.

About the webcam imagesAs most of you know, I run a side project on the webcam section of my dA page where I highlight cartoon episodes, short animation, animated TV specials and feature-length animations that I consider to fail one way or another. Instead of just placing a screencap there, without any explanation (because there's no text field option for the webcam), I made this thing into a "what if" scenario where the cast of Mystery Science Theater 3000 has to endure watching bad cartoons. Seeing the iconic Shadowrama on top of a screencap pretty much tells you all that need to know. I do write descriptions for each and every webcam picture that are hosted by Photobucket but I don't expect people to go there and read them so the Shadowrama treatment is still, IMO, a must.

On other news, I've finally bought myself a graphics tablet. It's a large-sized Wacom Intuos 5 Touch and while it's a whole new, weird feel sketching with it, so far I'm liking it. Eventually, I hope to adopt it as my primary inking tool eventually and phase out Photos
Yes, it was a jokeSome notes regarding yesterday's post:Yes, it was a joke in Personal More Like This
* Damnit, deviantART. Stop with your weak "April Fools'" jokes. They're not funny and they serve no purpose except to alert people that something is not right... leave the pranking to your users. A good April Fools' joke is one that's more subtle, one that makes you wonder if it just might be true. Until dA stops with their instantly-noticeable meme-based gags, I have no reason to write a truly insidious April Fools' post.
* Whichs reminds me... Sethisto, you're doing it wrong too. Keeping EqD looking regular, posting news as you normally would and stuffing that "fan characters made into official toys" post somewhere between them would've been enough. When I saw the pre-G4 graphics, I knew instantly not to trust anything on that site as long as the visuals were like that. Granted, the way it was handled was somewhat amusing but that's not how you do a proper April Fools' prank. I know this doesn't sound like me at all but take notes from old media

Currently working on :iconMechaGhidorah:'s commission.

If your name is missing from the queue list, please PM me.
NEW! I've lowered the prices on my cheesecake commissions and added new definitions for the mid-prized commission (you'll get a more detailed picture for this price than before)!
I will be working on them from November 2012 to early February 2013, after which I'll concentrate on other projects. If you miss your chance, you'll be able to try again later in 2013, probably during its last quarter. However, you can still PM me about from March 2013 onwards, I may have time to do a random commission every now and then!
(CLOSED!) Commissions, 12/2012UPDATE: Once again, I had forgotten how busy the holiday season can get. I've had little to no time at all to concentrate on my commissions as I've been busy cleaning, cooking, decorating, calling, writing, driving... you know, the usual. Also, I will soon be upgrading to a new computer so that will also take some time as I have to do all the configurations and transfer all my files. I doubt I will have time to do some actual sketching until next year, so right now I'll be working in Photoshop and inking/colouring one of the commissions I already have sketched. As for the traditional New Year's Eve pic, I can't say if it's going to be made or not.(CLOSED!) Commissions, 12/2012 in Personal More Like This

As you all may have noticed, we're still alive, there were no doomsday as some people proclaimed, so we're all good. For me personally, I never believed in doomsday since from day 1. I guess you can say that I'm more a faithful person who puts her trust in God and not some people who claim things, and then earning money out of it. What's most strange though according to the articles I read from newspaper is that the Mayan people themselves never actually believed in the idea of the world coming to an end, only that their calender stops in 2012. They were even asked why people outside the world panicks about it. Like for instance the people who fled to France to hide in mountains, because they assumed that it is the "safest place" in case of any natural distaster

Also the fact that I'm fasting this month(which is called Ramadan, I don't know if many of you are familiar with it)and for that reason I try focusing and learning more about this special holiday and its story, its meaning and etc, its almost like meditating or dwelling in some spiritual way where you have to abstain from things that attempt you, like music and high tech stuff,which does explain why I dont do much here(mostly also because of lazyness XD). but of course Ramadan isn't only about fasting.

As you may have noticed, I've been quite inactive in this site due to the following reasons I have, which I believe most of you have expected beforehand. In short, college and work are two major reasons that keeps me away from doing the things I like to do, like drawing.. = )
Also someone asked "missyuna, why dont u just draw in weekends or something in that time?" well it may seem like a possible option, but then again I have work and not to mention the family activity during that time. Other reasons I have, which probably is what slows my drawing process down is my computer,..its not doing well and it hates me =,(.
But hopefully, I will be able to get it fixed by someone I know, and of course it is possible that I might buy a new computer in short time. Also I have comic that I'm working on for someone,which will be a surprise ; )

Here's what I think right now
Some people get a nice sweet 16 at this time, or at least get something worthwhile on their birthday to cover it up. Want to know what I got for my birthday? Of course I wasn't expecting to get much since we have no money right now, but I'll tell you the things I did get. I got about $40 ($20 each from my aunt and grandma) and a box of body lotions from my aunt. The one single thing i asked from my parents was to just simply watch the lorax, don't get me wrong, I'm not mad at my parents. But when we went to go watch it in 3D it sucked, the glasses didnt even work. So the only other thing I got yesterday was a freaking ice cream from razzmatazz in the mall. All I was able to do yesterday was get on my sisters damn iPhone so I was able to talk to ash for a bit, and even that Ickes, because my damn sister decided to be a greedy ass and not even bother to be nice to me on my birthday.

Now, I have a favor to ask of you guys. The unfortunate drawback to my work going viral is that a lot of people are posting it without credit. I typically don't care about whether I get credit or not, but as a freelance artist it's pretty important that my name be associated with my work, especially if it's getting as much exposure as this piece has. That said, if you peeps happen to see it posted somewhere without my name or a credit, would take a moment to politely request that the person posting give credit and, if possible, link to my webpage, www.kevinbolk.com?

This is quite possibly the most interesting Sonic-related news since the release of Generations, even more interesting than the recent announcement of the new Transformed game.
Hunnid-P, the artist behind the classic theme songs for Knuckles the Echidna ("Unknown from M.E.", etc) in the Adventure titles, stated his involvement with SEGA in a future Sonic project. Interestingly, this finding comes not long after the fact that Sonic Adventure 2 was discovered to get a re-release for the XBOX360 (again, a re-release, not to be confused with the term "remake").
Is SEGA discreetly building hype for some bigger news? This tidbit by Hunnid-P unsurprisingly re-surged the ever living fan demands for a Sonic Adventure 3, which I never believed was completely out of the question, especially with SEGA's current state of financial difficulties. They're likely g
