WARNING!! THIS JOURNAL WILL HAVE SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!


 I watched Kimi no na wa(your name) because so many people keep saying it's a great movie and deserved an oscar, and I am kinda confused..... What made this amazing to merit an Oscar? Why did it beat Spirited Away??  

Kimi no na wa was a story that I didn't expect, I thought it was going to be just a generic love story about 2 characters meeting and trying to figure out each others names, then they meet again in the future. But nope, instead they pull you off guard with a body switch and a dark twist that gives you a little suspense at the end whether they survived or not, and the love developing from body switching. Sure it put me off guard as well, but it didn't feel great when I finished it. Why? Because I already seen anime who already did these genres and pulled this off better than this movie. I watched Steins Gate, read Metamo Kiss, and watched The Girl Who Leaped Through Time, and those made me feel satisfied. But many people don't even know about those, and people even said they dropped the Steins Gate series because it was slow and confusing in the beginning. So does that mean maybe this movie was overrated? What makes it better than Spirited Away?? Because I know there's more body switching romance anime out there that makes this movie nothing new. But with Spirited Away you have beautiful animation, life learning lessions, friendship, mystery, and overall a feeling of magic that many series and movies don't do, making it a unique movie.

 Kimi no na wa did have great animation that appealed to me, and the concept sounded good, but they didn't develop the characters and it made me wonder for the rest of the movie "why did they fall in love? What was the quality they liked? Was it only because Taki found out she died or because they only switched bodies and never actually met each other long enough to get to know one another?".At certain parts the animation and art style reminded me of Hayao Miyazaki's style. So overall this movie had some flaws that deterred me from rating it at least at an 8/10, I instead gave it a 7/10, which is more than fair. And believe me, I watched a lot of anime to know enough of how anime plays out, so I am giving an honest thought on it rather that trying to shit on a movie so many people seem to like.

Did any of my watchers watch it? What do you think? Was it overrated or not?
Heya and happy new years everyone! This year is going to be, well.... thanks to various things that happened last year and the year before we all know what's going down this year. So I just hope I make the best out of this year. I managed to get a lot done last year, but I want to be productive and also get a lot done this year. For 2017 I drew a lot more than any other year, entered the snow miku 2018 design contest with a bunch of designs, made my first terrible music (lol), did an anime cover, did a good amount of commissions, did 2 secret santas, I joined the gym for the first half of the year, finished a live2d artwork, started making game assets, did my first Live2d collab for Christmas, and probably a few other stuff I forgot. But I did succeed in accomplishing some of my 2017 new years resolutions.

For this year of 2018 these are my resolutions:

Get my first game done
buy a workout machine to stay fit
learn xfer serum more since I haven't been using it much since I first bought it
finish my 2nd live2d model
finish my first full body 3d model
finish a few more anime since I've been taking a break for a little too long now
Practice my art more
Get accepted into a fanzine

and anything else I find interesting to do I want to do it

I hope I at least get half of my list done. If I keep slacking time will be wasted. :/

Other Art Sites to Use and Important Update

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 12, 2017, 12:47 AM


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Heyo to my watchers and friends irl~! Thank you for watching me so far to support me I really appreciate it! I have some updates for you all.

First, I wanted to link other sites you can follow me to continue seeing my art, and then I have some things to say below.

First, you can follow me on these sites:

www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=14…

www.paigeeworld.com/u/dreampai…

dream-paint.tumblr.com/

www.instagram.com/xdream_paint…

www.pixilart.com/dream-paint

www.youtube.com/channel/UCx4Pi…

I used the username dream-paint on most sites I post art on to find me easily anywhere now. Instagram and Tumblr is rarely used, and Tumblr is my sketch dump and am not very active on there because I have a very hard time gaining followers and reblogs and is very toxic to be on there. And then Youtube hasn't been very much active only because I have no idea what most of my content should be that won't violate copyright laws, but I want to make it more active with posting(I do visit Youtube a LOT though to comment and watch videos). I will be more active on my Pixiv and Paigeeworld account the most for now. If there is any other good art sites to use let me know. (I already use artstation, drawcrowd, medibang, and Colors3d too but I won't be linking those, just find those yourself please)

------------------------

Now for the 1st update for adopts:

Full human Adopts(not clothes adopts) that don't sell well will only be dropped to 100 points max. The reason why that is is because I already worked hard to create them and underselling myself is just plain wrong. If they don't sell then I will sell them again later when I get more watchers or more new people come to DA that are interested in buying one. A lot of people just want adopts to be free or for 1 measly point, which is not a good thing because artists put a lot of work in their works. For clothes adopts esp. the not very detailed ones the lowest I'll drop them is 10 points. But I will make sure not to keep lowering them.

--------------------------

Update 2 the future of posts:

First good news

Green Tick 4I will post merch. updates on DA
Green Tick 4Will post adopts here
Green Tick 4Will post game works here
Green Tick 4I will continue checking my inbox 
Green Tick 4I will still take commissions and art trades on DA (note me for e-mail if you want to reach me quickly for commissions)
Green Tick 4I will advertise my other art site links here every now and then
Green Tick 4I will still help run groups I am admin of


Bad/neutral news

x I will not post illustration art on here anymore
x I will not talk to people often on here anymore
x I will rarely check my inbox unless they are group notifications
xMe commissioning other people will be very limited
xMe watching more people will drop 
xThe posts of adopts, game works, etc. will not be posted often
xbe rude or a smart aleck to me and you'll now be blocked because I am tired of it

Overall this account won't be very active anymore, but it will still be used sometimes to show I am still alive and to have extra advertising since DA advertises stuff for you, so you don't have to unwatch because you will still see posts here. And also, trying another art site is worth a try, no? So do feel free to join other sites if you wish to try them out too and follow me too if you like my art and still want to support it.

The reasons why are many, but overall DA is not good for people who are serious in art. I am not sure exactly though why many others deactivated as each person has different reasons, but I don't want to deactivate this acc. because I spent a lot of time on it already and still want to look at my favorites.

I want to improve in art and become a pro. someday, and I want to learn to make many things like music and 3d models, so I am taking my time and learning little by little and will not quit art. 

The first event that really went sour on DA was when I should have left. it was during the time I was still in the Keroro fandom years ago, but thank god I left and found something I really like to draw, and that is Death the Kid. If you want to learn more just note me.

I am truly a good person if you a nice to me, but you won't earn any respect from me by being an asshole. I already tried to be nice to assholes before for half my life(I even had to spend most of my life in the same house with my asshole brother), but I am getting tired of it now so I just tell them off or block them because I don't want my anxiety and stress to rise up again. So if I am opening my bad mouth to those people don't be surprised.

---------------------------------------
Notice:

Also please note, if this site gets better handled in the future esp. since Wix has joined this site(if that's correct), I will make this account more active again, OR I can change my mind anytime if I feel the other sites I use aren't working very well. So I hope to still see you guys on my other accounts or in the future here on DA!

Someone was cold hearted and blocked me for no reason. (again) This is the 3rd time it's happened to me on DA for stupid and childish reasons and now I am hating to stay on DA for most of the time giving me bad experiences, and making my anxiety worse. Then DA is even more an asshole by making a rule that you can't WARN people. Many users on here are so cold hearted........... and some people even scammed me or tried scamming me. Please someone open a new art site already, specifically Inkr so I can start over with no hate............

[ COMMISSION FORM ]



Character Name: 

Reference: 

Posture: 

Emotion/Expression: 

Extra Info/References: 
 

If you want free publicity and followers, TALK TO ME LIKE A HUMAN BEING ATELIAE INSTEAD OF BLOCKING PEOPLE WHO WERE NOT BEING ASSHOLES. There was no explanation given as to why you didn't accept my entry, but if you told me, it would ease my anxiety, but instead you just made it worse by blocking me and made me almost cry of shame. It's like locking me in a jail for a crime I didn't commit. If whenever you are ready to talk to me like a kind and normal human being, then unblock me and note me your problems. Because believe me, I am a nice person when people are nice to me, and if you explained yourself I will forgive you.

Edit: Ateliae if you ever read this, I want to say that someone told me that the reason why you blocked me is because you got offended by me not knowing what your personal art is, or that I was only looking for free art, and if so, that's a BIG misunderstanding. For one, we already discussed a commission quote and I was planning to commission you in the future when I had money on the side for it, but then you decided to quit doing commissions, I entered the raffle because I did not want to wait for you to open up the commissions for 1 person, because you said it's first come first served and I will most likely keep missing it. And then 2, I do not read descriptions for any art unless it had a faq or rules on it like adopts and commission info. sheets, and then I do not favorite a lot of art anymore because I want to keep looking at the art I really really like in my favorites and it doesn't get buried in all the favs. You blocked me unfairly, and that was rude of you to do so.

Now, I will forget this and not bother you or message you on other accounts, no worries, but I no longer like you as a person anymore. And you also made me fed up with Deviantart now and can no longer deal with this site, so now I am hoping to find another place to start anew and make this an ad account to advertise my other sites.
I got this from Ori-san23 so I sadly don't know the original creator to this sorry.. I will have another test done from this site below: www.springhole.net/writing/mar…

Anyways, this is a test I am doing for my OC Lunai, because I don't think I did her yet, and if she is close to mary sue I will prob. have to change some things. Either way, the story and characters are still w.i.p. and evolving so it's fine.

Overall points: 21

5 Anti-Sue/Stu 
Your character may be a bit on the boring side. Of course, this does depend, but generally if they are scoring that low, it wouldn't hurt to 'spice them up' a bit.


6-15 Balanced Character 
If your OC scored around here, then they are probably quite a well-balanced and interesting character. Those scoring in the higher end of this category may be a bit too much though.



16-25 Borderline Mary-Sue/Gary-Stu 
We have a problem. You need to tone your character down. They are most likely a bit annoying to others, too.

I feel this test was a bit unfair, considering that witches in the SE world are already discriminated and use magic and there are many different types of creatures in there, so I would say my score is actually 15.

Now for the test on this site: www.springhole.net/writing/mar…
(I like this test because they're more detailed and precise with the questions)

Lunai Mary Sue Test Results by Dream-Paint

I got a 59 because I had to answer questions that are not removed or applied until later, like having an accessory that she always wears that's important, which is the collar with the pocket watch which is removed from her at the end of the fanfic. 
Ever wondered why your work hardly gets any views, comments, or favorites? From Tumblr, to Facebook, then to Deviantart, and etc. Well, I have come up with possible explanation as to why that is, because I was tired of people telling others to work harder and get better to gain popularity. Except, I am sorry to break it to you, but that won't work entirely. Like you're not going to magically get watchers once you improved tons. Because even REALLY GOOD artists fail to get enough attention compared to others out there. 

The reason is simple, people are PICKY with art. Just like with music, food, anime, candy, colors, and so forth. 2nd, it has to be trendy. 3rd, it must be either sexy or cute art. Then 4th, sometimes it's based on luck.

How I came to this conclusion? Well, I have been looking at a lot of art ever since 2011, and noticed a pattern to everyone's art I've been watching. One thing for sure is, people used to look at art more often back then than they do now, with a lot of people being viewed, but more people started doing artwork after a while in and then, it lowered? 

When I joined 2 Facebook drawing groups, only certain art was getting more popular despite having a few artworks posted at the same time as them, even when the art was good. Then I joined Tumblr and see the same problem(and even many people don't reblog which makes the situation worse for an artist to be seen by more people), and then Deviantart people do not click on a picture based on the thumbnail. Even Pixiv it's difficult and a LOT of good art get less likes than others and I see the same people on the top of the ranking over and over (like the user LPIP I actually don't like their art either and really dislike the whole washed up coloring that they do and I think other people deserve to have their art up on the rankings) People SEE it, they just choose not to click on something while some do, either that or they delete their notifications to clear their inbox and miss your drawing. I had a drawing on Pixiv that had 205 views but only 5 likes and 5 bookmarks. LMAO Like have you ever even clicked an image if the thumbnail didn't please you? It has to somehow appeal to a person. You can post it at certain times of the day as some say to get a few more views, but it only makes a certain amount of difference and not a whole lot for underappreciated artists. Update the same piece too often and then you lose watchers.

And then, there are some various reasons why people don't comment. One is because people don't have anything to say, and one other is because they are too shy. (I know this one because someone did a poll once on this and that's what people would say). Then, do you ever wonder why a sketch you did gets so many views, favorites, and/or comments but your other art that you worked hard on doesn't get much? Or a popular artist follows someone with lesser skill than them? Well now you know, it's being picky and having different tastes, just like music and other stuff.

THIS IS THE REASON WHY MANY WHO DON'T GET ENOUGH NOTICE COMPLAIN AND IT'S FOR A GOOD REASON. So telling artists who hardly get any views, comments, and/or favorites and they complain to suck it up is like saying to a person who can't get lunch and you can at school or if they have no friends and you do to suck it up. It stings because usually it's people with more views than them who say it, and it sounds stuck up. 

However, there's a way to combat all this, but the main way is to sell yourself out. You must post sexy or cute drawings, trendy things, make raffles/giveaways and sell at cons(however if you are not at least skilled enough to sell at cons I suggest you don't because others will get angry about it and call it a waste of space plus it's more professional when you have enough skill, and believe me, I've seen the con artists say that). Then other ways are to post often and have engaging activities for viewers so they enjoy their stay. Also, have a person to look up to and try studying them who have a lot of watchers and figure out how they do their art. Usually it has to do with lighting, composition, and dynamics that I noticed with the top art. But it's not entirely necessary, because I saw a few works on Pixiv's ranking have sketched art on the top.

Things to avoid: drama, not finishing commissions for months and disappearing, OC art(you can post these though after you got enough watchers), posting art only once every month or 2 or longer, asking people to make art for you(some do it which is okay but read their terms or other comments first before asking), making really bad and cringey OC's, or stealing art. (don't ever steal because you will get caught and/or attacked by others)

One problem I noticed though, is people who color manga pages get a lot of watchers and it's still partial theft, but I don't know the reason why other than people think they drew it but no one cares if manga pages are used even though it was not theirs and someone still drew that because who cares right? (I have no idea how this logic came to be and only stealing from non-studio artists is not okay. Buuuut I think it's partially fine because I think they are learning from coloring them so that's prob. why people let it go)

So, I think that's it. If anyone has a rebut go ahead and say so and we can discuss it, but please take note that I will not tolerate any hateful or bias comments and will hide them.

Okay first, I want to say before reading anything, is if you want to be a pretend mod and tell me to stop, THEN THIS IS NOT FOR YOU SO PLEASE GET OFF THIS JOURNAL ENTRY!! Pretending to be a mod is frowned upon in many communities because mods and staffs already exist, and if they can't do their own job themselves then that is their problem. If I get into trouble on my own then let me face my own consequences, okay? I am fully aware that some companies don't like their own actors/actress voices to be used, but it depends on ea. company and I've seen a good amount of Utau's already used from anime/cartoon characters, even from Japan, and they didn't get in trouble(If it was like from Disney or Nintendo though, then someone will definitely get into trouble for those). PLUS! I am only going to use the voice as personal use and NOT share the voicebank. So please be nice, ignore this post, and let me learn.

Now, if you are an audio editor and/or experienced Utau user that wants to help then please read on..

I am making a few original UTAU voicebanks and only 1 anime char. UTAU. But I need help with editing out the voices for the anime character from the anime series. So what I am looking for, is someone with actual editing experience to edit vocals from a dubbed and subbed anime and turn them into cv UTAU voicebanks (yes, taking out vocals is possible, I mean, how else do you think really good edited videos or songs have no background sound in it??)

Examples: 
www.reddit.com/r/StardustCrusa…
www.reddit.com/r/promote/comme…
soundcloud.com/iamdibandmothma…
[link] (Naraku UTAU)
www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm24761…
[link] (Sesshomaru UTAU)
[link] (osomatsu UTAU)

You will get paid or I can offer artwork for you whichever you prefer. But, if you are an actual experienced audio/video editor and charge a lot I must ask that you have payment plans because I am not rich or even in the middle wealthy enough to spend all at once for something. If you'll do it for free instead, then that would be super too. 

If you'd like to help please note me your prices and info. and I will tell you what I need.

Too many software to choose from? Having a hard time with it? Need a software with good features? If any is true then read on!

This is an alternative/recommendation list of stuff hat I highly recommend/have been using for a long time. This is good for new users starting out, or use as an alternative. I am going to list both free and paid but great using programs/software. Most software are well known but not used by everyone. Also this is mainly for PC/digital work.

retas studio (too expensive cacani is a better alternative)
opencanvas (more expensive than csp for the latest)

renpy (need to know coding)
live2d euclid (it's a monthly fee just for the head)

Jp 3d software in En www.flat2d.com/hexagreat_en.as…

Not well known/new programs I found interesting:

I found a program similar to Live2d Euclid that has a download, but when I tried making something I couldn't find a redo/undo button or use the usual ctrl+z/y, and there are no layers so I had to e-mail them asking it. Here's the link: www.alecrivers.com/2.5dcartoon…
7/20 update: they said they never implemented an undo/redo button and never will. :( They said someone can pick it up and add it though through coding.

I found a program that does automatic in-betweening like Cacani, except it's free! I didn't test it out yet but I will. Link here: www.vpaint.org/#about

github.com/yuki540net/satella.… similar to Live2d and is in the works as of 8/21/17

MMD
Rpg maker MV
Visual Novelty

Going to test: vpaint 2020 release, rpg paper maker, and anime3d+donuts!

*you can start with this set if you want
--------------------------------------------

There are some other software for art and other stuff, but I don't see them of any great significance compared to what I listed.

Also I did not recommend any music software because most didn't work on my computer properly or did not have enough tutorials or was too expensive. So you'll have to go with your gut feeling to choose. I heard FL studio, Cubase, Utau, Aquestone, and namewave are good though and I have tried UTAU and Fl studio.
