I had a dream last night that I was going on a tour of some cave, and the tour guide was like "Ok, before we begin, let me lay some ground rules. Or should I say, UNDER-ground rules?"

I like how I make puns even when I'm sleeping.

Ok, so... dA's new logo isn't great. I thought it was supposed to be a "not equals" sign at first, which makes sense because DEVIANT art, but I didn't get the other elements of the logo (there's still the d and the A in there... barely... or an upside down and a rightside up A?) until I had it explained to me and great logos shouldn't need explaining. I see more of a Z than anything.

But I dunno, seeing people complain about layout alterations or change in general is just odd to me. All websites change over time. Personally, I'm more interested in dA than I have been in a while because I want to see what's different than I remember. I was checking out dA's big announcement journal and seeing all the people complaining and it's just... cringe worthy and reeks of entitlement. I'm so used to this by now. People complain when Facebook changes, when dA changes, when tumblr changes. They say they're going to quit. But do they? No. I've come to the conclusion that people just like to complain, they feel a sense of ownership over sites they spend a lot of time on, and they think complaining about things like this could actually make a change whereas there's so much in the real world to feel hopeless and powerless about right now. But those very real-world issues have drained me to the point that people acting like a new logo and layout on dA is a legitimate reason for real agitation is just... so unexpected and incongruous.

My next entry for the Massive Mario Collab is this shark pirate from Super Mario RPG. It may surprise you that I've never actually drawn this guy before. I guess one of the reasons is that his sprite/character model is actually really hard to interpret... I even saw a few depictions with his eyes inside his mouth, which is kind of what it looks like to be honest. But I went with something a little more traditional that suits my style.

These cuties are from Super Mario Galaxy 2, and as you might have guessed, this is also for the Massive Mario Collab.

Massive Mario Collab - 2 more characters allowed!

I thought this would be my last entry for the project, but actually I think I have one more left in me. I noticed that a certain character wasn't on the list and when you see who it is, you'll know why I had to ask for him. ;)

23 years old. Everything I can do with art is completely self-taught. My main project is The Fourth, a story webcomic that I create with my boyfriend: www.thefourthcomic.com When I get the chance, I also like to do a smattering of video game fanart. If you like what you see, I do commissions for pretty cheap! (Look here: altermentality.deviantart.com/… )

Question: Which settings do you use for your textures?

There are a few photoshop brushes I'm fond of, and I run certain bits of my coloring through the crosshatch filter (which sharpens it up and tends to up the contrast as well, making it a bit more visually interesting) and recently have been giving things a pass through the grain filter as well, which gives it a papery look. The effects are subtle and you don't want to overdo it (I use a low intensity setting on both). I can get the names of the brushes when I get home... I just know them by sight =P

Dear Altermentality,
     Greetings! I hope I am not disturbing you, but I have a special proposal for you. I would like you to help in an anime series I am working on. This series will be based off the popular Nintendo game Super Paper Mario. I have noticed your love for said game and am surethat this idea may seem interesting. I'm Crystal, the anime's creator, script and story writer, and voice actor playing a totall of four voices. I would love your help. Anything can use help other than script (I already have a file). I hope and await your response in a prefered note. I'm sorry for being pushy if so, but I still hope for a new friend being you.

Aww thanks! Looks like I wasn't watching you either - I have no idea what's going on in my dA world XD

Me neither, I'm afraid. The real world's been keeping me busy these days.

I still check in on your comic from time to time, though! Looks like Skarva and friends have a heck of a fight ahead of them; hopefully that Kraken isn't too well-armed.

:')

Same here! I'm getting back into dA though. I honestly do miss this place a lot.

Hey thanks! Yep, they certainly do, but for a guy who wants to challenge the gods, I hope he can take on a kraken at least.
