Although usually associated with religious paintings as a form of portable personal iconography, the diptych can actually be any two images presented in side–by–side juxtaposition. Classic diptychs are joined together with a middle hinge, so the images can be “closed” and worn as a pendant on a chain. But art galleries often simply hang the “related” photos or paintings together, or place both within one frame—as is the case with the contemporary diptychs in this collection.

RePost My Old Comics: Advice?In With The OldRePost My Old Comics: Advice? in Personal More Like This
I was browsing through my archives of old comics that I’ve made and a realization occurred to me. Some of the comics in there have never seen the light of day, or were never posted online and only available for print. Of these comics there is a series of unintentionally hilarious melodramatic short stories, a zany series about a video retail worker trying to prevent theft, the original black and white Alex Ze Pirate stories that eventually led to the webcomic reboot, and Formera.
I’ve been thinking about posting these on my various websites, and even including the Black and White Alex Ze Pirate stuff as part of the main canon of the series. As for Formera: I own the rights to it and can pretty much do whatever I want with it. I’ve been debating posting it online for quite some time, especially since Book 2 was made in color, but only ever printed in black and white.
The only reason I’m a little hesitant is because this stuff wo
Thoughts on the 'Trading Places' Pin-UpsFor the past few days I've been uploading a series of "pin-ups" of famous cartoon characters who've exchanged each other's outfits. I originally made these about 6 months ago, so they are a little outdated in comparison to how I work now.Thoughts on the 'Trading Places' Pin-Ups in Personal More Like This
These weren't originally meant to be seen by the public. At the time I was still very sick and had stopped making comics and art all together. This was sort of a therapeutic way to try and get me back into drawing again. And even though they're "pin-ups," aside from a little creative licensing here or there I never tried to make any of them look slutty or give them M.C. Escher spines.
I must admit that looking back on this now from the vantage point of hindsight there are a few things I would've changed. I use more photo references now for hands and feet, so I probably would've spent more time making sure those looked better. I'd try to get the proportions of the character's bodies a little more accurate as well (Velma is too skinny), and try to match

The trailer to "Equestria Girls" (the humanized MLP spinoff film) finally was released today. Aaaannnd everyone's freaking out. Again.
You know, it actually looks pretty decent. Bronies... please understand: I know you're a major unexpected demographic for the show. I know you enjoy seeing shout-out's become canon within the show, and appreciate how the creators do little things here and there for you. But... the show isn't made for you. This is not Cartoon Network and the target demographic isn't 25 year olds in college. You're a nice addition to the target demographic of little girls, but you are not the driving force behind MLP.
I don't want this to sound mean, but it needs to be said. This is where it becomes very important to understand the fine line between being a fan of the show and thinking that because you've invested so much energy into the show that you're entitled to things.
I'm sure the movie won't be as bad as everyone makes it out to be. It honest

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.

So a rumor that was leaked, and then possibly confirmed, is that not only is MLP:FiM getting a movie (a direct to video movie I'd wager), but a spin off series as well. This spin off series will be called Equestria Girls and be about the Mane 6 crew being transported to Earth and transformed into humanized versions of themselves.
And bronies are throwing a tantrum, yet again.
I've kinda given up trying to understand brony mentalities these days. You adore the crap out of humanized MLP fanart, but you don't support the idea of it being somehow "official"? I mean, I get that you enjoy the show because you're a niche and unexpected demographic Hasbro should be mining for oodles of cash, but at the same time you all do recognize that the show IS made for little girls and kids in mind, right?

The timing of my post about the nerdfighter minecraft server could've been better. Right before I posted about it, Hank Green made a video and showcased it briefly which resulted in a HUGE influx of new players. To compensate for the overload, the serves have been moved and updated to now host 1000 members at once!... with the net result of having glitches (like server lags and accidental bans) run rampant, followed by the crash of the forums. Yikes...!
To make matters worse, the 1.6 Horse Update is scheduled to come out this week, and the nerdcrafteria servers can't update until the plugins they use are updated as well. So that likely will cause a lot of connection issues and server problems as well.
I'd like to reassure everyone that this isn't normal behavior for the server. They are working on getting the forums back up and running and hopefully the new server will be able to handle the plethora of users better now. It's just gonna take a few days t

Alright so despite the fact that I've bashed Disney constantly, I actually really love this company. Its the fact that I have such a passionate love for it is the reason why I'm so hard on it. They have the power of forming timeless childhood memories, and for the most part they gave us wonderful stories and morals. This is the company that made me want to be an animator, so I really couldn't choose ONE female character.
While I like many of their leading ladies, a lot of them are pretty repetitive in terms of their ambitions and personalities. Also, keep in mind that these are NOT the 'best female characters' Disney has to offer, just four of my favorites. In reality though, Megara is my absolute favorite while the other three are runner ups. However, I feel like I've constantly talked about Meg in previous art work so I want to talk about my other favorites to offer something new in this entry.

There is nothing you could've done. There will always be people who say mean words because you are different. And sometimes their minds cannot be changed. But there are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. Those are the people whose words truly matter.
Keep in mind that I'm analyzing the Starfire from the 'Teen Titans' show, NOT the comic. I have no idea how comic!Starfire is.
Teen Titans was an extremely fun and quirky show. It had a great cast, an amazing villain and it took its audience seriously (while not shying away from funny moments). I really love all of the titans and I believe they all represent some kind of teenager. However, my favorite titan of all is the titan I related to the most which is the alien princess Starfire. At the first glance, Starfire was in danger of becoming many annoying tropes; a) The forced love interest, b) The ditzy girly girl

Nuzlocke Comics Romance -OCxCanon-Aaaand here is the 'sequel' of my previous post. I decided to talk about this topic since its something thats heavily debated within the fandom. I wanted to give my two cents about this, because when it comes to many Nuzlocke Comics this is seen a lot. My comic in particular has a lot of OCxCanon relationships and they can be fun...but I always feel nervous when I do it too. Fans feel strongly about romance and characters, and Oc's are difficult to pull off. If a romance or relationship between an OC and a Canon is not done well then fans will be upset. When I was fourteen for example I was a hormonal romance obsessed nut and paired all my female OCs (self insert Mary Sues *cough cough*) with every attractive male character. People ripped me a part and since that they I took what I learned and found the 'secret' of building a natural, fun and good romance.

I love this movie. Even though its not one of my favorite Disney movies, I have nothing but utter respect for this film. I proudly own the 'Diamond Edition' DVD, and I watch each documentary in the extras to learn about the production of this film. Because of this film, animation became a form of art and people respected it as such. 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarves' was premiered in 1937 (weeks after its completion) and people didn't know whether it was going to be a hit or bomb. At the end of the film, people were in TEARS including celebrities like Clark Gable and Shirley Temple. 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarves' made an impact in the film industry and society in general. This was during the Great Depression and this was the perfect film to lift the hearts of the crestfallen audience. Even if you don't like this movie, I feel that it should be re

Without any doubt in my mind, I believe Pocahontas is the most controversial princess in the line up. Much like Don Bluth's 'Anastasia' this character is based on a real life person and completely changes their story and personality. On one hand I'm glad that a POC is considered as a 'Disney Princess' but on the other hand this is at the expense of a real life person's story. I think this is where Disney crossed the line, and I'm not surprised that they never attempted this again. I have no problem with Disney taking legends ('Mulan') to make their story but Pocahontas was NOT a legend. She existed and her history was recorded through memoirs and paintings. She also has living descendants. Therefore I do see Pocahontas as a highly problematic character

I'm part of the 5% of people who watched this show on Nickelodeon and I have to say that its tragically underrated. This was definitely Nickelodeon's version of 'Daria' only with a much more relatable protagonist for preteens. While I do like Daria a lot, I always found the character more comical than relatable.

You get where the fire is... it is not a normal fire... it is dark... reddish, and seem to be filled with strange eyes of flame and the long flames look like snakes and dancing witches... it seems to be coming from a hole in the ground... suddenly the smoke starts to cover you!!
It is fine, it is simply smoke
I step back, away from the smoke, I keep looking at the strange flames
The smoke takes the shape of a strange lady with horns and wings, she is completely dark, made of smoke

It is a "magical girl" setting, 6 girls from different countries (Germany, USA, Russia, italy, Japan, and Brazil) with interest in greek mythology went to Greece during an international trip. They were not very careful and ended up breaking an urn... a lot of dark, chthonic fire rose from the bits of the urn, and the Goddess Demeter, queen of dragons and plants, rose from it. Demeter grinned, happy to be free... and said "you are free now my daughters".
From her... 6 snake-like dragon spirits came, and they flowed into the bodies of the 6 girls...The girls tried to hide the incident with the urn and Demeter... but they all started to report strange incidents with fire and plants...

The finale for “The Legend of Korra,” Book 2, “Spirits,” airs on Nickelodeon tonight at 8 p.m. (The closing episode is already online at Nick.com.) Speakeasy spoke to the creators of the animated fantasy series, Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, about the show and what’s in store for Book 3 “Change.” We ran part one of our chat yesterday.
[Spoiler Alert! You should watch the finale, online or on TV, before reading this article.]
In our interview, Konietzko said that the inspiration for the name of the coming book, “Change,” had its roots in “Eastern philosophy.” Speakeasy searched through our copy of Stephen Mitchell‘s translation of Lao-tzu‘s “Tao Te Ching” on our iPad and came across a passage that may console “Korra” fans as they begin the wait for the next batch of episodes after tonight’s finale.

The above pictures are for the concepts of my SpeedCharm baby, Volt Allen. This contest is because I HAVE TOTAL LACK OF IDEAS FOR HIS SPEEDSTER COSTUME. This contest is for Volt's hero costume.
Things to take into consideration:
Volt is a speedster.Volt is BORN 15 odd years after season 2.Volt is seventeen years old. No age bending with bases. This is aimed specifically at use of a Robin S1 base.Volt has a little magic but he doesn't nurture it because he's more into being cool and being fast.Volt doesn't want to go near his father's old Impulse suit and wants to look different from the Kid Flash suit. This doesn't include Impulse's visor or Kid Flash's goggles.He'll need protection from friction on his knees and hands and possibly shoulders. He also would need something to protect his eyes during fast speeds.He's sorta like a hipster mixed with movie Jock types if you want a style to influence his suit on

IMPORTANT TOOLS FOR DRAWINGWell, drawing traditionally.IMPORTANT TOOLS FOR DRAWING in Personal More Like This
Things I have learned that you need whilst drawing with pencil. Or perhaps only I need.. Either way, I'm sure this'll help people.
PENCIL. Don't try and draw a masterpiece with pen unless that is your one medium and you're awesome with it. I am one of the people who are not awesome with it. Pencil can be erased and therefore, is very important. You need pencil especially to plot out the pose and the proportions. Pencils are the most important thing.Eraser. ERASERS ARE GODSENDS. The amount of times I have messed up a drawing surely is close to millions. Erasers are the best!Sharpener for your pencil... I usually draw with a mechanical pencil but still, a non sharpened pencil sucks.RULER. DID ANYONE KNOW THAT RULERS ARE AMAZING? I got a 15cm or 5in one yesterday and *foams at the mouth* it's so helpful with proportions. Because you can measure them out. Like, for real.
PLEASE USE UNDERLINES AND RULERS!

My deviantART StoryIt has now been over 10 years since I first decided to join deviantART and little did I know then, this decision would end up forging my entire life and career.My deviantART Story in Personal More Like This
I wish I remembered exactly how it all started, but I'm going to go with my best guess and say I heard about it from another student when I started college back when I had just turned 18.

I started posting on here and got moderate attention, I had been drawing for a long time at that point so my art was in a state where it was at least interesting to look at. If anything it was a fantastic place to get inspiration and look at art from amazingly talented artists.
It wasn't until I decided to color the line-art for the following piece that everything really started.

It was heavily inspired by websites like Etsy and Gumroad where a lot of artists are selling products they create and making a living doing so. Our marketplace will feature content specially for artists such as tutorials, brushes, textures, 3D models and much more. It will be amazing if I may say so myself
