The Six Layers to Creative Workhttp://gangles.ca/2009/01/20/the-six-layers/From Scott McCloud's brilliant "Understanding Comics" that everyone in any creative field should read. So much of it can be transferred to pretty much anything, as seen in the above link where the blogger compared the 6 Steps o video game development. This is an absolutely brilliant way of breaking down the creative process to developing a project. It helps you recognize what step your mind automatically leans towards, where your strong suits are, and what steps you need to develop. I personally struggle with step 6, seeing that I start pretty much everything at step 1 (save Josephine Mink, which was step 2).Seriously - take five minutes and give it a read through. Good stuff hat can help you become a better creator.
Science, sociological theories, and fart jokesVik and I binged Rick & Morty twice over this weekend. Loved it. Immediately threw it on our list of favorite series of all time. If you're interested/not sure whether it's a show for you, this will give a good background:
WHAT. THE. FUCK. 2016.FIRST DAVID BOWIETHEN ALAN RICKMANTHEN GARRY SHANDLINGTHEN PATTY DUKETHEN SINATRA JRTHEN UMBERTO ECOTHEN HARPER LEETHEN PRINCENOW CHYNAWHAT THE FUCK 2016STOP KILLING OUR COLORFUL CHARACTERS.
Change of pace?Well! Vik and I just finished watching some amazing new movies and series and I really really wanted to talk about them. I thought it would be fun to do a set of journals talking about our favorite movies, tv series, and games. The game ones won't be so long because we're not big gamers, but we ARE avid movie and tv lovers, so expect a lot of those XDDoes this sound like fun?

HIRING ARTISTS!!!Hi everyone!I’ve realized over the years that I can’t draw everything myself, and I’ve damaged my hands by trying to draw all of my comics on my own. My followers are always asking when the next chapter of Fisheye Placebo or Knite is coming out, and it always pains me to say not yet. I can’t draw for more than a few hours a day now before the pain sets in.I’m still determined to finish the comics I started, but I know I’m going to need help. I’ve been dabbling in 3D backgrounds for Fisheye Placebo, but I still had to build them myself, which is very time consuming and damaging to my hands in different ways.I’ve been thinking a lot and I want to move my comic creating techniques to the next level and incorporate both 3D characters and 3D backgrounds. I’m not the most skilled when it comes to 3D programs, and I don’t have the time or health to create all the models myself, so I am looking

The 'FNAF Sister Location' Anti-Hate RantOK, so everyone should have seen Scott's new teaser by now.http://www.scottgames.com/akaI was not going to write about this originally (so forgive me for rushing this journal), since I figured that literally everyone knows about the news by now, but the way people are announcing it and reacting to it disturbs me. I thought we were better than this, but I guess not.Literally everywhere I go today, everyone I've seen is spamming memes like and saying that Scott is milking the series and beating a dead horse. Even people who have "left" the FNAF fandom and have decided to pop back in just to put in their discouraging, even hating, opinions. It's so bad, that I feel people are hating JUST because it has become cool to hate, as some kind of herd mentality. Well guess what? It doesn't matter what anyone thinks! Scott is clearly going to do what Scott is going to do! The amount of hate th
How to get Popular as an Artist (EDIT)EDIT: Sooooo, this journal definitely proved my thoughts and point. Congratulations to myself, this is ironically my most popular journal on my DA.NOW! I want to clear something first as many people seem to be mistaking and sort of bashing in the comments. People who do this type of content are not bad nor should be shamed. That is, if you really enjoy doing this type of content, there is nothing wrong drawing your favorite characters, wolves, cats, sexual content, tutorials, ect. (minus the drama... like seriously, this world needs less of that). I'm just a WEEE BIT tired of seeing young people and people that do art go straight into doing this because they get more noticed or this is the only way to get anywhere. They complain or abandon their passion/love that isn't 'oh so popular' (because it doesn't have advertisements/a pre-built fanbase, or a giant movie/tv show/game behind it) and move into something else that is trending just so they can be noticed. I know you want feedback.
Zootopia impressionsSo, I'm a bit late to the game on this one but I recently watched Zootopia. I can't exactly call these "first impressions" though because people have been talking about it for months, so these are just my impressions upon seeing the movie after having everyone saying everything about the movie. I was expecting some kind of hype backlash when watching it (which usually happens during scenarios like this), but thankfully that didn't happen this time. I enjoyed the movie. Most of it. There are some negatives, and I do have some criticisms of the movie. But for the most time it was a pleasurable experience. And there will be spoilers in this journal entry.I will say, it was a pretty daring move for Disney to make a film about prejudice like this, in the modern era. Especially since their previous tackling on the subject, Pocahontas... wasn't the best. ("He's not like you and me/which means he must be evil!" A little on the nose, aren't we?). Zootopia is better than
