Can't wait to see this film. It's the movie I've already wanted to see as a kid.
May giant robots haunt Hollywood for the next decade. Unless Michael Bay and shaky cam are involved.
November updateWell, two months have already passed and I never realized it.
Here's a summary of what has happened so far in my boring-as-heck life:
I've never been as open about my life as I am now with this blog/journal/social media junk, but that was mainly because I originally set up this account two years ago to try to solely post art without all the typical teen drama. I was naive at fourteen, and I had an overblown head thinking I was going to make good art back then. Well, now that I've studied fine art for a while and realized dA has the worst art community on the Internet (no joking, the crud that comes out of tumblr and Pixiv looks better than what's considered "great" on here), I've thrown these plans out of the window and into the nine circles. I may actually post some art if I have the time and courage, but that's not happening soon for reasons I will explain later. So teen whining text dump ahoy!
Senior year is turning out to be insanely busy, no joke. On one hand, a lot of pressure wa

Upd8So my older sister and her boyfriend are visiting for a week
Haha just kidding. They're pretty fun. I'll write more later.
Random StuffFor the first time, in a long time, I finally have loads of free time to myself.
Naturally, I'm wasting it all reading art tutorials, webcomics, novels, Spacebattles, and watching Youtube instead of actually creating stuff. Curse myself.
Hopefully this summer should bring me plenty of opportunities to try new things.
With that in mind, here's a bunch of random stuff I decided to write about.
Went to a TA meeting yesterday at UC Berkeley and filled out the paperwork for my stipend. Hyped at the money I'm going to get.
There was a lot of pizza and soda and I actually managed to remember the other TAs' names. Well, about 70% of them. It turns out I'm actually some sort of veteran (forgot this was my third year being a TA), so I got to explain the basics of the job to the newbies.
I think Reading for Creative Writing is some sort of beginner's writing class (I don't have much of a clue), so I hope I'll be able to help out the students and give them some tips to flesh out their writing.
Exam Time and Other StuffLike nobody else noticed, I haven't been on very frequently as of late. A pretty major reason is that...yup, it's time for AP exams.
This time of year's pretty weird for me, because classes at this point end and you get to pretty much goof off during those periods since you're already done with the curriculum However, at the same time, you've also got to cram in order to do well on the exams, which you end up missing half of your school day for.
So yeah, hope I do well over the next two weeks. Wish me luck.
I've also gotten a TA position for the summer at UC Berkeley, like I did last year. I'm pretty excited because I'll be working with my old AP Art History teacher, and that course was a blast.
Good thing too, I was sorta worried I'll have nothing to do for the summer. Internships.com, thanks, but I won't be needing you.
I've gotten into the habit of writing fanfic again, now that I've returned to this site (though I feel dA's still terrible and I need to clean up my profile to
The Big Difference between Actual and dA TutorialsNote: this is somewhat of a satire. If you find this offensive, I apologize.
HOW TO ACTUALLY STUDY ART
Learn to make art like this.
Go and study the different aspects of art that make up each composition.
--Hue, value, contrast, and saturation
-Light and shadow
Keep towards a realistic style, it'll help you learn how to draw a wider variety of things.
Push your boundaries. Try different tools and styles, like charcoal and oil painting.
HOW DEVIANTART TEACHES YOU TO STUDY ART
Learn to make art like this.
Screw what the art teachers say, they just want to bog you down by drawing old men! This is where it's at!
-Use off-model screenshots from your favorite anime as reference for what to draw
-Rely overly on digital tools to cover up your mistakes
-Stylize without a clue about what you're doing (As long as it looks cool, nothing matters!)
-Boobs get you more page vi
Oh God It Actually HappenedToday I found EBF Rule 34 in my inbox.
THATS IT IMOUTTAHERE
JUST KILL ME NOW
Please Listen.I just got an email from a concerned parent. Her daughter has an account on DA, and apparently she copies and traces my drawings. I looked on her profile and confirmed that, yes, she did trace and gave minimal (sometimes no) credit. The reason her mother messaged me was because a few people were apparently sending her harsh messages asking her to give credit. She even got a few death threats.
Listen...I'm going to say this all again because I guess it needs reiterating: When it comes to my art, I do not mind young artists copying or tracing my drawings in hopes of developing their skills, or because they are still learning the way of things. If you see someone posting a traced or heavily referenced drawing that does not mention the original picture, please DO NOT immediately jump to aggression. If something like this (art theft/style theft) really gets on your nerves, then I understand why you might be angry upon seeing it, but you must find the maturity to take a breath, and

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
