Most of the people know that feeling. Literally a girl told me once to go away when i was in highschool(thank god for university, rock and beers), have you ever feel this way in art?


Hi people is me again, im going to start written blogs in my tumblr account i will start using  hashtag  elsevillablog, hahha cant find the way to type the hashtag icon or number. Anyways its somethign i learn past weekend and tried to use personal experiences to try to motivate people.

Used to have an old blog, but didnt got nice feed back, so decided to move it into something easier to approach people.


In case you are feeling down, and want to cheer up, you can read what crosses in my mind so you can find my frustrations and ways to try to see the positive vibe.

Kekkai Sensen, hooolllly Shit

Journal Entry: Sat May 2, 2015, 5:33 PM
This anime deserves a review alone, not included in part two im making. This anime started to grow in me one by one, a bit at a time. The story its sooooo deep and well written, has drama, romance interesting things, backgrounds great music, cool backgrounds, creature designs, cool powers wicked. Its been years since i watched an anime this damn good.



If FLCL and Cowboy Beobop had a baby, would be this anime. Why FLCL, the music its almost the same, the animation feels the same as wacky, some punches you are watching Canti moves, the White haired guy, looks exactly as Haruka brother, if you place the two together they will look as slibings, also both are as crazy. He also has a Vespa motorcycle with same helmet and googles. Ther eis a lot of hands in designs and Things coming from heads. Also the steam has a lot of background feel like FLCL(feels like the same world, this would be the town where Naotakun brother is playing baseball). Animation really funny.

Why this anime looks like cowboy Bebop? Same character designer, characters designs are sooo deep and interesting, the world feels deep and dramatic at same time.


First episodes are like an intro, when things go crazy was on episode 5, i was like hooollllyyy shiiiiiaaattttttt. There was this charactes cooler than Hulk, i was like holly shiiiiiaaat(again) did just happend? Wowww really woooowwwww   WOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.    

And ooohh my godd the feeelssssss, thefeeeeeeeelsssssssssssssssssssss when they are in the movie theater, the music in the right spot at the right moment, i found myself smiling at end of episode.


Holy shiat and anime that made me smile at the end. Not sure if this anime is number one on my list, but at least has the second place near Ore Monogatari.



This anime has a great stroy, and like all great stories they start slow. Stick to it, trust me till you get to episode 5.





Great jazz music, i wouldnt be surprised if HELLBOY was walking amount the people, story its daman good.

Tumblr and live

Probably some people dont know  but i have a tumblr account i had dusting, you know i wanted to have my name so noone take it. But i think i had found a use for it, im going to do weird stuff there, you know things i can leave unfinished no editor,  no pressure to make it prettier. I mean just to move the hand and paint somethig super fast. The reason im doing this its because i think my hand became stiff of always wanting to do super detailed stuff , that made me forgot about sketching, lose sketches thati dont need to do super pretty.


Yeah lets say tumblr will be my digital sketch book.


Instagram my traditional sketchbook and photos.

twitter cool art things i can find.

And deviant art for stuff i do super finished.

And facebook for stuff i havent finished yet.


I think this might work, sorry for been all over the place, i think i should work on my website to put all this together, sadly Groove shark died yesterday, all my lists of cool music gone, damnnnnnnnnn.



okay i wills tream a bit, if you are bothered and have nothign to do you can see me paint, becaus ein acouple of hours i will go out to drink my sorrow(naahhh i just love beers and music).. see ya guys there.

My Manga Brushes online

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 21, 2015, 9:23 AM
Thanxs to :icongrieverjoe: for showing me this link. A couple of weeks ago, Corel Painter asked me to create some brushes that works in all versions of painter. It was truly an honor, i mean to be choosen, feels like a dream come true. I wanted to create a special set, with brushes that are easy to load, that are not slow. Also with settings that will get you to know the capacity of angle and rotation, without taking too much power of the computer cpu.



Tried to put the set of the most usefull ones i could think of, brushes that i use a lot daily, that gets me that good feel of blending. This is for the people that ask me all the time what brushes do i use, this could help you to get the basic idea of how i work.


I love creating brushes, i constantly create them by changing the dabs or moving tiny details, but if you get this as a base im sure you can customize them to your liking. After all each, hand its different.


Use brushtracking to your liking, remember the first thign you need to know its to customize your own brushtracking in preferences, so you can do light strokes easier, and heavy strokes with no pain in the hand.



Please support Corel Painter by getting their brushes, if aint mine no problem, im sure you will find the set you will need most, there are other cool artists there.



Here is the link.

Two animes Jewels i missed

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 16, 2015, 9:25 AM
I apologize, it seems i miss judged one anime, i thought it was going to be a terrorist moe crap, because saw first episode and  all pointed to be a really lest make a terrorist pretty new moe genre but i was wrong. Im talking about, you know....


Zankyou no Terror


Saw it on my list in netflix, and i was like what the hell, lets see episode two, because i saw it had 5 stars and i was like why? Need to see it, then in episode 2 they changed the focus, it was more about the police than the two cute guys. The police dude raminded me of the evil guy in cowboy bebop movie, i was like damn i love this style of realism. Story started to grow in me and then i saw this scene.







And literally blew my mind away, i was like wowww, music its great, the song reminded me of Akira, because of the bikes and the weird way drums type sounds, reminded me a lot of a akira but in a happier way, each time i see this clip i want to take a road trip to feel air on the face.


Then i started a research to see who was the composer of the music , and then i saw  Yoko kanno and i was like holyyy shit, she is like the Mozart of anime, i really love her music. I still dont know what the plot is about , but im hooked with the music.




The other anie i want to talk about is...



PEACH GIRL


Its an old anime from 2006, i cant believe i miss it, but i was fooling around in youtube and saw chapter one and got hooked, im so ashamed to say that i watched the entire series in one sit in the night. The plot is so damn good, i really hated the evil chick in this anime. The plot twists, the love triangle, the black mail, bad situations, it might sound cheesy but its a chick flick you need to watch. Sorry i could only found the english trailer.





Yeah im a dude and im ashamed to say this thing hook me up all night long.

Finalllyyyyyyyyyyyyyy finalllyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy teaaaars offf joyyyyyyy, tearrsss offf yoyyyyyy, let ME play a song first. Ummmmm here it is.


Imagine the song "Ode to joy" and play it in your mind as you read.



After months and months of waiting an anime that could fill this hole in my chest arrives, finally a male character i can relate to, not because im strong or something, but about girl, man finally a main male character that doesnt looks like a yuri girl with pants. Whats the anime im talking about, well is this one




ORE MONOGATARI!!


    The story not average at al, saw the previews of this anime and i was like seems different, then finally it airs, i watch it and i was like wait a minute, this looks like Densha otoko, then the train happens and i was like hooolyyyy shirtttttt this looks like densha Otokoooooooo( densha otoko its the coolest thing i had watched)




Plot is super manly  guy  gets hot hick romance.

here is the trailer.










Spoilers talk, if you havent seen it watch it first then come back.




This is what i had in my mind when i saw it, the friend he is a truly friend, he always rejects the girls because he knows his friend like them so much. Girls he always  like gets charmed by his hot friend, but he doesnt notice he rejects them because he can read him as a book, he knows he likes them.


But here is the plot twist. Finally a pretty girl moves his heart, but that girl aint interested in him, but in the other guy. But the other guy has sooo low selfsteam that he wants to make this girl date his friend because he nows its the first time he is in love. He havent realized he is the main character.


The hot guy had always been the blue ogre(if you know that japanese tale) but this time the red one wants to be the blue ogre.



So its going to be a really complicated  story to follow.


Waited for an anime like this for many many months.

Spring anime my picks part 1

Hibike! Euphonium

This will be my musical anime choice, reasons why i love this one, there is a girl with red glasses that doesnt remove them, like other anime were she turns into a weird cat with no mouth,(yeah a music anime with no mouth silly right?) This anime its the right balance of moe. There are no annoying voices that wants me to kill newborn babies. Grown ups like adult and not like a 15 year old. The male characters are draw as males. Okay after telling why i wont pick other music animes agaisnt this one, its that girls are cute, they kept the red glasses, no annoying voices. Dialogues are well written, story its interesting, and i love animes where i can learn about music.

First chapter its really nice, the emotions and music are incredible, if you want great moe, this is your choice, this aint like K-on, its more realistic with a bit of drama to it.



Fate stay night Unlimited Blade works second season

This series needs no words.



Plastic Memories

This anime looked average at first, but after the story developes, you notice it has an intense drama to it, almost breaks me at the ending, they develope a great emotion, the director is a genius. Its a sci-fi anime, about a company that have to shut down, im not sure if they are androids or clones, but they have to take people away from families, it can be really sad. I recomend you to watch it.



Arslan senki

This anime its really good, the style its like fullmetal alchemist, looks like him  but with white hair, not sure if its based in old ovas i had seen, but its going to be an epic war battle anime, with solid plot, first chapter felt really good, seems like somethign big will happend next chapter, this is an anime you dont want to miss, i mean adults here looks like adults, same for males.



Baby steps 2 season

Tennis anime loved first show its a sport anime, but for me feels like a love story i just want to see what happens with his girl and him, but i must say each chapter i see the more i learn abotu tennis.




DanMachi

This anime its really cool, started really nice, hiope it doesnt dissapoint me like Sword art online, that started good then went down hill. Feels average anime, but after watching i must say its interesting, the leveling up system, and looking forward to see what he wiill do next. Has lolicon service, but at least aint that forced, feels natural and not annoying. there are some cool designs of characters. Its a story about getting inside dungeons to level up trying to reach the deepest levels or higher levels not sure. But the dude is weak and wants to be stronger, because he liked a stronger girl that saved his life.



Seraph of the end

Started good then turned bad and boring and then turned insto somethign really intense, specially the gore escene i was like WTH? Its a vampire anime, that lives underground, literally. The ending was epic, i feel interested to see what happens next, but the preview of next episode make it look average once more, with the shool life routine, instead of training with the army to become a better soldier, but okay lets see what happens.



Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru Zoku

I say the intro was brilliant, now im hooked to know why the two were arguing, the cuts the music the animation felt like an ova, then story turned abit average, i still dont have a clue whats the story about not sure if its good or bad, but i must say the intro hooked me. Its a daily life school anime. You need to see the intro, im hoping it can be good.


Kurokos basketball

I just love this sport show. Feels my slamdunk hole in my heart.








Well thats the picks of animes i liked so far, there are still more animes that havent shown off yet, rules i  use to choose my animes, girls dont look like 8 year olds, dudes dont look like a lady, no annoying voices, solid dialogues, good balance of moe, fanservice but kept it thight, adults exists int heir universe, not adults looking like a 15 year old. Specially annoying voices, i can understand a character in a group, but when all of them try sooo hard to be cute, that hurts my ears. If animes didnt made the cut, its probably because i dont have uch time, or they arent made for me.

Finallllyyyyyy, after months and months of waiting, last scene of this episode, i had been waiting months for this. A man faces its consecuences, he aint untouchable, i was like standing on my chair clapping. Orihara Izaya chan was touched. 



Izaya san has "the Vino complex" from Baccano, but he isnt Vino, the world its not a movie he is protagonist. He was too close to the sun, it was natural that he would fall. Even if he figures out later to take down the guy that did this to him, the wound its down. He wont be able to feel untouchable.

When he received the call i was like holly shit this is going to happen, and they start saying about his look, i was like hollly shit they are watching him , and the moment the sound take splace not by the phone but next to him, i was like filled with tears of joyyyyyyy, i was like yeaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh its going to happen, the king will be touched by karma.



This has to be the best ending of episode i had seen in years.


And damn the action from the mafia, to take down two professional killers, was soo intense and hardcore, that they looked really scary, specially the dude crotchign next to the girl, i guess his cane its a small sword. 


And if you ask me the kid that became the dollars, started to show multiple personalities, you will see his bad side, he is starting to become evil, all thanxs to Izaya, he started to realize he has a dark side, it was really clever to show the change of face when he was walking then after passing a pole, you could see his face change with an evil smile.


It seems the Bartender finally have a girlfriend, i can see this girl stalkign him in the future.


Did you saw it? What do you think?

After reading all coments and watching videos, some of them were really inspiring, and comments of people, really cleared my mind, that both sides are right and both are wrong. There can be a middle ground, a sweet spot where both sides can have piece. sadly most of this videos they want to show their side its right. But what i learned was to try hard to get to that middle spot.

By the moment a person side with a group in this case sex i think its part of the problem, but maybe thats natural, a men cant understand how a girl feel same for a girl to know what a mean feels. A woman cant understand a kick in the balls, and a man cant understand all the pain to give birth. I think it applies same on gaming and entertainment indrustry.


But the change is happening right now, each year i see more and more talented girls getting in this field, that was almost kidnapped by men, because lets face it, was not popular with girls in old days. so i think we are already in the middle, the change its happening, and im looking forward to see where the future of entertaiment goes.


Im in the middle because im waiting for Life is strange and bloodborne both on march 24.


I had read each comment and watched videos of past erased journals. Thank you soo much for sharing your point of view, i could see an equal balance from both sides, and sometimes its cool to get thoughts from people out of your skull.


So im gonna ask you this, what game are you actually playing right now, and why you like it?



Thank you guys for great feedback, sometimes you can feel like an island, hidding in your studio working and painting like a monkey. Thank you for great feedback.

Still here, dont read if you havent seen it, i highly recomend you to watch it.





Dont read this if you havent seen it.




iF YOU HAVENT SEEN IT dONT READ THIS.





Cant stop the manly tears coming from my eyes, this had become one of my favorite animes, the ending was so just perfect. When he was playing on stage and he suddenly see her, he knows, we know, that she already is dead. That was a turn around in the emotion of the song, first plays lovely and fun, and after watchign her turned so sad, a song you dont want to end. I was like, okay dont cry, be a man, he already dead dont cry okay, be cool breath air, okay. Then i was like cool, i didnt cried, first anime i dont cry about a death of a lovely character i grew up as a mannn, yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. And then......




She leaves him a letter after her death. And i was like "ooohhhhhh shiiitttt, there goes my manliness"""".





And i was right, that letter broke me like a pice of paper, did some plot twists i dint expect, this anime is as good as 5cm per inch, the end is so sad and so perfect at same time. What was your impression of the episode? did you liked the ending?

Creativity aint wired

Creativity, where does it come from, where it goes? Most of the time people ask me how can i be more creative, how and i be more unique on my topics? Thats a hard question, imean daily life its were creation truly is, not online. Been talking with other friends ona tablet, talking about how their creative process works, acouple of beers, laughs, argues, intriguing, different point of views like all humans in all topics, but we all agreed that first, you need to think in the concept you want to do then search for reference tools, not the other way around.

This days 99% of people  use internet as their main inspiration tool, i think thats a double edge sword.


Lets say you want to do a bird, google bird and paint the first bird you see, same colors same pose same composition, okay? Now picture 10000 artists wanting to draw a bird, and use same photo? The only creayive person in this story was the one that took the picture, the rest are just copy artist, zero creativity. And i mean Zero.


Using reference as a 99% (colors, composition, anatomy, pose,etc) i wont call it creative at all. But lest say you took the picture( frame it, composition, color palette, pose) even if you copy it 100% you are 100% creative, because photo is yours, you can see a thing like this online. Its almost unique.



GOOD WAY TO USE REFERENCE

First you are in your bed with eyes closed, you are picturing a knight fighting a dragon, you open your eyes with a clear idea of what you want, you rush to a paper or canvas, you draw it (anatomy its horrible broken bones) then you add colors in the sketch( terrible values). Now that you have your piece, you can start searching for references, references are made for support not the other way around. Same as for models, you put them in the position you want with lighting you want, you are the creative person there. References will help you to fix broken bones or weird anatomy you just cant see the mistakes. Painting online also helps you to get opinions from lots of people at same time, great eyes.



BAD WAY OF USING REFERENCE

Search for a photo you like, then start the concept from the photo, first photo aint yours, you arent the creative person that did that, you didnt choosen lighting, composition, anatomy, model, storytelling,etc You are just copying someone else idea. There is no inner voice of you here to speak up about yourself. I had seen tons of this type of art, where lets say a princes from disney, gets tattos, and punk haircut, but same pose, same colors, some people even use eyedroppers, because they have fear to even choose colors on their own. That type of work its cool, nice looking but i wouldnt call it creative, it could have much more potential.





BEST WAY TO USE REFERENCE


After you have a clear idea of what you want to do, or show to the world, first you need a topic, i had seen tons of arts in museums, where i ask the artist what its the title, or why she or he choosen that title? Their replies are like "i dont know, it came to me after i finish it, i choose it to make the picture sounds cooler". That dissapoints me alot, you get the idea that the artist didnt knew what his message was fromt he first place. Sometimes you can get good images with random things, but you get greater art when you have a goal. Some artist had replied to elike their goal was "female strong soul"  that was their goal before even starting to paint, and you know what? Their esposition shows all that in every single paint of the show. Usually this artist that knows what they want to show are the ones with stronger images.


So anyway, once you have a title like, "i wanna draw a punk girl reading a book", dont rush and google punk girl reading a book, instead do a small thumbnail, choose the right position for your girl, choose where the light will come from, choose the colors and  what are their meaning to you, that can help you to carry your message.

Once you have your sketch your idea then go to the web.

Instead of googling  a punk girl reading a book, open several windows like dude reading a book, then other one like punk hairstyles, other one like different type of books, other one for cool glasses. Sometimes helps just to have all those images of the books all at once, so in a way you can create your own book she will be holding.


Let say that by the luckiest thign in the world you see an image of a girl, holding a book, and you want to literally copy it, resist or picture the pose but imaging the lighining in another way, dont copy it, reference means like using less than a 100% of the image.


Some artist highly recomend that if you have an image as a model, turn it into grayscale, so the colors dont affect your color choosing. Because we tend to copy colors, even by subconcious, so i highly recomend you grayscale only for value purposes. At least use your own colors.


NEVER EVER TRACE. Never trace an image, you literally are killing your inner voice, lately its sooo tempting to put a layer on top, some even use wird filters or do a couple of strokes on top. Dont do that, lazy artists kills their own stuff.


NEVER EVER EVER USE EYE DROPPER, if you are going to do an exercise where literally you are copying( exercises are good to improve, but you arent creative here) try to figure out wjhat colors you are looking by using your eyes, its a fun game because when you finish your exercise, you try to figure out if you nailed the same values or saturation.




LOSE FEAR

People are soo afraid this days to try to imagine things, is like art its turning in a remake hd. If you made a drawing that has one arm bigger than the other one, big deal, next drawing you make you will make sure that doesnt happens again, failure and mistakes are what makes you stronger. If you limit to yourself just copying, your creativity wont grow inside you. If you do fan art, dont draw same clothing, lets say you want to draw a korra image, then draw a korra that has never seen before, not just one of the millions out there with same outfit. Im not saying is bad, im just saying you can add your own creaitivity to the mix.


Dont be afraid of your own creativity, as huma anatomy practices creativity needs also exercises or it can rust. Go outside, walk in other roads you dotn know, order food you never tasted close your eyes while tasting it, try to picture images, hear music you never hear before, go to a movie theater watch a movie. Watch cloud forms, have a sketchbook next to your bed, you wont believe how cool ideas you get when you get up, quickly written down before you forgot them. Even a shpe of dirt in a table you are seating on can give you an idea of form, or in a pet store you watch this fish with prettier colors, take a photo of your phone and use the color palette for an image.



"Art in internet is already a fabricated  digested processed food for your brain, but outside, its a cornucopia of flavors.Go out and make your own menu".




"Creativity comes from your connection to the world and not to an addiction to a cable. Be brave show us your inner voice, because i love hearing art".
