With all the CraftyKraken art style chit-chat, how do you feel about people using your art style? I am guilty as charged for drawing in your style, before I developed my own. I apologize in advance, but I was just wondering what your opinion on people using your style?

Well firstly- I don’t think people making these judgements actually know how to distinguish art styles apart from one another all too well.

I can recognize Crafty’s style pretty much right away most of the time, his ponies have bigger heads and smaller bodies than mine and he has a very specific way of drawing faces and expressions that simply don’t match up with mine and that was developed from his own style.

Though, really, every artist usually takes styles from other people and works them in to being their own styles over time so I don’t get what the hell is wrong with someone’s art mimicking or resembling another person

It’s how we learn and progress with art, after all

I’ve only ever seen one person who’s style looked so much like mine that I was floored and confused, like, I kept thinking “I didn’t draw that, did I? I know I didn’t draw that.”

And that person is now working on The Master blog.

Pretty sure if they used the same brush settings as me, people would be very very confused

I was wondering how you make sure your rats get proper food and care while you are not home for days? I've always have someone home to take care of my rattie, but am interested in how to make sure they are taken care of without any one home. Thanks!

Gravity feeders are your best friend.


This is my “WIP” or steps I do when I do Vectors.

I first start out with a drawing of wanted pose.

I take the drawing and import it into Flash where I then vector using the line tool and “Convert Lines to Fills”

After that I import the vector, do the eyes, and color in Photoshop. I found it easier and had better results using photoshop. Flash can be a little bitch.

I am glad to hear that you are doing better! How are your roommates doing after all this? Is Jester doing okay?

Everyone’s kinda… bleh right now.

I’m really worried for them but I can’t do much since I’m trying to take care of myself and the house

Asylum for the criminally insane sounds about right for Slate, but you said Rossy does not like Slate's job because of morals, and being a Correctional Psychiatrist is the same thing that Rossy does; Helping people through their mental illness in order to be functional in society and life. So that means Slate is doing something like performing Lobotomies on patients? Just my wild guess.

Well, the place he works does perform them yes. He’s not qualified to do them himself.

The difference between them is that Slate sees it all as a study in order to better the future generations, while Rorshach wants to help there and then and is a lot more personal and caring for his patients.

Slate looks at everything objectively, he believes that progress can’t be made without doing unorthodox things to get results.

Thing is, while human experimentation nowadays is obviously very frowned upon, Slate would point out that they gave us more insight in to the medicine we know today at a much faster rate than the less involved studies.
