Hi Viria. I was just curious; earlier today (march 6th) you posted a photoset tagged "koe no katachi" and it was a page of manga. The boy was complimenting some blushing manga girl. And in each panel, it looked like he had like, 3 hands. Am I staring at this art piece wrong? I'm seriously curious about this anime now haha
ahaha, I am guessing you probably haven’t read it:) It portrays the sign language, so the ‘three hands’ is how they show certain movements:)
hello viria! i was just wondering if your still into supernatural? and if so, will you ever think about drawing them again sometime? your artwork is magnificent by the way! ^w^
I…I wouldn’t say I am actually into it since like..season 4-5? I LOVED the first ones, but with all the demons-angels stuff I feel like it went down a hill, honestly. I was able to watch 9 seasons (or how many are there now), but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I did the first ones. Too much suffering, too much wow we died but we’re gonna come back, and generally I am not into any kind of \religion\ aspect of the show. So, I might actually catch up, but I don’t think I will ever do fanart.
do u and that anti-leyna blog hate each other or what?
ahaha I don’t know XD
Personally I don’t hate them, and I don’t think they bother to actually HATE me? They’ve called me out on my shit once *and were right*, but I think it’s fine now. I generally find this person’s opinions and the blog itself quite refreshing, haha
Hi viria. I just wanted to tell you, tumblr user scopria has been reposting your art. Other people have told her off, but she says you don't care. Is it true that you don't care when people repost your art? Like, are you ok w/ it? Thanks Viria
Guys, I am going to post it just to explain how I feel about reposts, but please, since I know some of you might be quite..overprotective at times, so I am going to ask you to not end up messaging or even worse attacking this person.
I’m sorry, guys, I just know that sometimes you really end up insulting people who in a way might have \insulted\ me, but there’s really no need it attacking them back. *not talking about this case, but about my messages generally*
So, as for reposting. I am okay with it.
It used to be bothersome to me, and even annoying at some point, but now I am way too used to it, since, haha it happens quite often. But as long as no one removes the actual source or claiming the drawing is theirs, I am fine with it:) Nor you nor me have the control of the actions of other people, so it’s generally quite pointless..just, let it go, and that’s all:)
I may not understand why some people choose to repost something instead of simply reblogging it (because it’s like..so much easier), but I guess there’s no helping it. Not to mention that sometimes people repost things, but still tag it with my name (or add the source), sooo….even though I still don’t understand I don’t hate it, heh
Obviously it’s always better when it’s reblogged or at least credited proprely, but as I said, we have no control over others’ actions.
girl, I clearly understand your point of view, but still. you are not right when you talk about Russia and call Russian people freaks. they don't really need a part of your country because it means that they'll have to invest a lot of money in you. they truly try to help people. just.. you are not right
I will give you an award, if you direct me to the message where I am calling Russian people freaks, WHAT THE FUCK ANON? Did I ever even say I don’t like Russian people? People (I mean citizens here) mostly do not decide what’s government up to, as far as I know.
And..gods, I am not even going to argue. I’d just be really glad if you’re actually right and all Russia wants is to protect us. Still not quite sure to protect from what, and not quite sure why would they arrest RUSSIANS in YOUR COUNTRY that are protesting against russian \soldiers\ getting on a territory of Ukraine, but oh well. Hope you’re the one who’s right, really.
Because attempting to animate in the purgatory that is a midway between Sai and Photoshop is akin to sawing off your dick with a nail file, I got around to this last week.
The goal is to allow for viewing of wip animations being made in Sai without having to load the project into Photoshop, Flash, or whatever your external timeline of choice is. Essentially, you export each frame as a .png into a folder and then just overwrite them in the same way when you want to update a frame.
On load it defaults to whatever directory it’s sitting in, but if you want to keep it somewhere else you can select the folder source post-load.
Images are loaded alphabetically, so all of these are valid:
a.png, b.png, c.png
1.png, 2.png, 3.png
Frame1.png, Frame2.png, Frame3.png.
It runs off .png files because I don’t see why you’d use any other format in 2014. If anyone desperately wants .jpeg support or something I can add a toggle though.
Image locations are loaded fresh upon each iteration and held within the program so you can add, update and remove frames without stopping it if you want to. This means you can leave it open on a second monitor and have a looping preview without leaving Sai.
Shit runs on .net 4.5 since C# is cakewalk for stuff like this.
You know what's interesting? You say you're not good with people, that you're way too shy, but look at your artblog and the amount of people who say they love you. You might think it's not your merit, but it is. You say what you have to say by drawing. Your art talks for you in a way most of people dont even know how to talk. It's your true talent. So, dont ever thing you dont deserve people's admiring or affection. Cause you do. Have an wonderful life, dear.
well, internet communication and real life communication are quite different, aren’t they?
I didn't really understand your point of view if it's about russian influence. Do you feel like russian or ukrainian? Or would you like to be russian, because your small homeland historicaly belongs to Russia? No offense, maybe I don't understand ukrainian needs, but after all i was really suprised that people in your country wants old state of things again. I agree that you need totally new and fresh government but you really should stop being post-soviet country. Fight for your independence.
And it’s clearly impossible to fight for independence without forcing a language on like half of the country..? Don’t you think it’s a one sided fight?
I consider myself UKRAINIAN. I never considered myself Russian. The language we speak isn’t something to decide where we belong to, is it too hard to understand?
My small homeland doesn’t historically belongs to Russia, it was just part of Soviet Union as Ukraine was. Since when Odessa belonged to Russia anyway? It’s Ukrainian city.
ALL I WANT IS TO SPEAK MY NATIVE LANGUAGE AND SEE MY NATIVE LANGUAGE AROUND. WHILE STILL BEING CONSIDERED UKRAINIAN. What’s so hard to understand about it? For some people it’s like we’re not Ukrainian enough, but we are not Russian enough either. That’s crap.
I want Ukraine to ACTUALLY BE UNITED, not just keep telling us it is. Because it isn’t. At least not at this point. Even our new government now seems like focusing more on the needs of Western Ukraine. Because the first thing they did when they came after our ex president? Cancelled the law about Regional languages, therefore forcing Ukrainian again. Then one of our precious politicians mentioning that Russian should be wiped out. Therefore pissing off a lot of Southern-East regions. UNITED. Yeah.
Our fresh government has to realize, that if they will keep things this way, then all they are going to end up with is going to be another Maidan but with Russian-speaking Ukrainians. No one wants it. All I want is to have someone smart enough to keep both parts of Ukraine satisfied, not only Western Ukraine or not only Southern East.
Not to offend you or anything, but how come whenever you draw the trolls their skin always matches their blood colour and is never the same shade of grey?
~50 shades of grey~
It’s just something else to differ them, you know? Like not every human has the same skintone (and all the kids are paper white in homestuck), therefore I thought it leaves more to \imagination. Same with trolls:)
"Not native" in that first Ukrainian lived there, then the Russians took over that land and imposed their language, which then becomes native to you. The Ukrainians want to reclaim their country from Russian influence, which is part of why this fighting is occurring.
yyeeeeeeeeeees right. I am not saying your message honestly makes me quite angry, but it does. ‘Russians took over’, fighting is occurring. WELL YEAH. YEEEEEEEAH. OF COURSE. OCCURRING TO UKRAINIAN REGIONS. BECAUSE? UKRAINIAN IS ALREADY THEIR NATIVE LANGUAGE. What is going on ‘now’, is exactly the ‘Russians took over’, but in a difference with ‘Ukrainian language took over’. BUT YES OF COURSE IT’S A GOOD THING BECAUSE WE’RE IN UKRAINE.
The day I believe that forced language is a good thing is probably going to be the day..oh wait, it’s not going to be the day.
Your ‘fight’ is fair as long as they don’t forse anything on anyone. It’s one thing to get to learn Ukrainian more, and then completely the other thing to force Ukrainian everywhere where people. actually. speak. Russian.
And guess what? IT’S NOT THEIR FAULT. It’s history. Who can change history huh? I hate this stupid discrimination with all my mind, you probably can’t imagine. Because even if we speak Russian we are UKRAINIAN and we would be Ukrainian even when speaking Russian. but who cares anyway. not you and probably not west, because, the ‘fighting is occurring’. The first thing one of our ‘new’ poloticians said was what? That Russian ‘must be wiped out’. Thanks, bow to UNITED Ukraine. But of course as long as this union focus on the west. Sigh.sighsigh. I know not everyone like that, but..It’s still such bullshit.
Wait; so you speak Ukrainian and Russian ? Do you learn both at school and why bc you are 2 different countries ?
I am not ‘two different countries’, the part of Ukraine I live in is historically Russian-speaking, as many other regions. Ukraine was always quite seperated on Russian-speaking regions, (south east) and Ukrainian-speaking (west). So, for my whole life I’ve been speaking and learning Russian, while at the same time we did have Ukrainian at schools too. but it wasn’t hardcore, you know. But then later our government changed, and nobody seemed to care all that much about Russian-speaking people, they made Ukrainian the only official language in the country, so me and many other people ended up having Ukrainian everywhere: on tv, news, in movie thietres, not even talking about schools. Like, I’ve had ONE lesson during a week of my native language, and, guess what, 5 Ukrainian lessons. Sounds fair, isn’t it?
I know it’s easy for me to understand Ukrainian, because it happened to be quite a big part of my education (the main part who am I kidding), but there are many people (my uncle for example) who don’t understand Ukrainian good enough. *personally my tongue feels quite uncomfortable even speaking it and I have to think about how do I form a sentense sometimes.*
And now we may or we may not end up with another Ukrainisation, which is just so incredibly unfair for southern east. Or at least I feel this way..Like, we’re no less Ukrainians than western people, but still no one seem to understand that they force the language on us that isn’t native.
Sorry I know you didn’t ask for it but I had to rant.
Hi Viria, I've been drawing with a mouse instead of a tablet for a while now because my parents are a bit biased about digital art "The computer does it for you" and want me to focus on traditional art more, which I still like to do. However, recently I found out I have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and should not continue to draw with a mouse. I have money to buy a cheap secondhand tablet, but my parents won't let me. Is there anyway to convince my parents that digital art is not useless?
I am very much not sure what I’ll write will convince someone who’s already determined, but if there’s anything I don’t like as much it’s the phrase ‘the computer does it for you’. Because, it doesn’t. It’s true it has more possibilities and in some way make it easier for you to draw, or if more honestly, it allows you to fix your mistakes easier. Because very often in traditional if you messed up, then that’s it, you mess up. There’s no always a way to fix it. Digital art in these terms is easier because it allows you to step back whenever you need it.
BUT, if you can’t draw, then the computer won’t magically draw you a picture you see in your mind. It’s still your hand that works, your choices what to use and HOW to use it. Why would your parents be against it I simply don’t understand how can someone ACTUALLY believe that it’s computer which draws and not you. Tablet doesn’t draw for you either, it only allows you a comfortable drawing..gosh.
The whole subject just makes me angry, I am sorry. you know what? I have this grandfather who also thinks that drawing is easy, and who also thinks that everything is done for you once your art if digital. BUT whenever my mom gets protective of me and asks him Hey why don’t YOU draw something if it’s so easy? he gets stuck. It’s not exactly the best option, but why not ask your parents to draw on computer if it does everything for you anyway?
I've noticed in some news outlets that they now spell "Kiev" as "Kyiv" and it's because it's "a closer approximation." Is this true? Have you ever seen this spelling?
I think the both versions are correct:) It only depends on to which language it’s ‘a closer approximation’, because in Russian it’s Киев (which is Kiev in English); while on Ukrainian it’s Київ (which is Kyiv) :) Personally, I use Kiev because it’s closer to my original spelling.
Since you seem to have troubled nights lately, I'll tell you something funny. So, I've been sleepwalking since when I was a child and about one month ago my mum found me, at three am, on my computer, scrolling your blog. When asked what was I doing, I said "I'm watching at senpai's hot drawings". I didn't have a clue I was such pervert while asleep! ;)
