Critique submission is closed for the moment because there are so many requests coming at once and there's only like...9 of us critiquing and one of them is a writer. keep following us though, cause I'm sure as we finish critiquing them, we'll open it up again

This is a blog where a bunch of artists will be critiquing those who submit their work/projects in, so if you want your work critiqued, go on that blog : D
I'll be critiquing on it too ~~ Well, mostly the ones needing human anatomy help and asking for red-lining xDD;~ but there's peeps who can help with animals, composition, colours and stuff too .
please note that it might take a bit of time for all of us to get through and critique it thoroughly, especially since we're all pretty busy people as well .

It started in Northampton earlier in the year and has since spread to a number of other towns and cities around Fair Blighty.
The horrific Northampton Clown was the first. “Patient Zero”, if you will. He would simply….appear. Sometimes he would knock on doors and randomly offer to paint the window frames for the bemused resident (though he never seemed to carry paint or a brush). On another occasion, he emerged from a lake and handed out balloons.
Since this hellish creature first showed up, there have been a deluge of sightings, from right across the country, causing such a degree of distress that the authorities are issuing advice.
What *Is* Art Plagiarism? (READ THIS)Okay, due to some flaming I've received because I brought art plagiarism to the attention of an art plagiarist... I've realized that there is more than a good number of people who don't know what art plagiarism really is--so, I've written an informative journal for you all. It's broken down into several easy to understand sections.What *Is* Art Plagiarism? (READ THIS)5 years ago in Personal More Like This

If you use Fur Affinity as your primary art submittal site, actually pay attention to what goes on with the community there, and you still have your primary artwork there, then you deserve everything that happens to your images. The site is run by scum, they have inconsistent rules, and when financial backers come calling they start mass bannings until the people funding them are happy. I've written about their incompetence before, and I'm not rehashing that, but let me propose this one thing.
When the financiers of FA called up a few weeks ago, they were upset at all the cub porn (read child porn) on the site. To keep on the good graces of the powers that be, they started mass banning and deleting images from all the sonic artists that draw porn on their site. A community outcry went out against this change in the User Policy (or something), and then all of a sudden the site experiences a massive crash a

I acted like a marketer when I hadn't sold anything.

Nightly Frights: Russian Sleep ExperimentNightly Frights: Russian Sleep Experiment5 months ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you unfamiliar with the internet, creepypasta are scary stories that are circulated through the internet, usually through discussion forums or e-mail.
The term "creepypasta" is a variation of "copy and paste" and derives from the viral nature of these stories, how they are spread by copying and pasting them.
I love creepypasta and actually consider some of them to be creepier than most horror movies. And I feel there's a good reason for that.
While horror movies are created by big media companies for the sake of raking in profit, stories such as creepypasta or "urban legends" are much more organic, deriving from the imagination of a single person and achieving notoriety by being spread from person-to-person through personal correspondence.
While horror movies rely on special effects to elicit fear

5 LevelsI've spoken as guest speaker a number of times over the years (come visit me at SCAD Atlanta in January). While I'm not the best or most patient teacher, I think my strength is my pragmatic and blunt approach to the business side of comics. In order to help the students think of a "5 YEAR PLAN" (more on that in an upcoming post), I'll often break down the different page rate levels of comic book artists as a way to help analyze the playing field of our industry. If there's a ladder to success, what's wrong with defining each rung? I imagine such a breakdown helpful for moving up in most any industry, not just comics.5 Levels2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the 5 LEVELS of comic artists as I see them--NOT based on talent but on page rates, popularity, and the prestige of the titles the artist works on. You might define them differently or have more than just 5, but I find that less-is-more when it comes to people being able to retain information.
How LMS was born...WARNING: This is a long journal. But if you wish to learn how LMS came to fruition, then please read ahead. I hope you can gather some insight on this for all of you future comic, art, graphic novel, design-book creators. This is how it all went down and how it's come to be and become one of the most amazing aspects of my life.How LMS was born...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of people have emailed me, noted me, or left comments about how I originally came up with Last Man Standing, my graphic novel.

OBJECTIVE: SELL THIS DAMN BOOK, DANNY.
At first, Gabriel was nothing more than a character named ONE. He had no backstory, no face, nothing. I just wanted to create a character that was a badass, yet with a sense of humor.
I was inspired by such characters as Boba Fett, Wolverine, Deadpool and Clint Eastwood from The Man With No Name trilogy. I needed to create something that fit that build, however, I'll admit, it wasn't intended at first.
I uploaded him on December 8th, 2008, (which, you can find here: http://danluvisiart.deviantart.com/art/GABRIEL-107612010?q=gallery%3Adanluvisiart%2F7848546&qo=50) and he became one of the most popular characters of the series, if not, the most. Soon I started finding him on forums, websites, fashion blogs (what?), and more.
But what hit me so hard was that the majority of the comments rela

Basically, I don't give a shit about this, because I'm like a decade out of high school, and when I see people my age, or just in their twenties argue about bullying I just don't get it. But then, it's all social dynamics, and well, the "bullying", under a different name, happens to adults too, under different names, so maybe I can talk about it.
As always, I'll try to tell you people the actual truth, not the pretty bullshitting that is usually done to address this phenomena. No sugarcoating, no nothing. It's fucking time to look yourself in the eye. This blog will be long, so brace yourselves for the tl;dr.

It looks like most of my musings about art stem from :iconalnico-ism: for some reason. The color tutorial I'm working slowly on making, the idea of using bright colors as shadows, and the idea of composition I will present here all come from conversations he and I have.
A lot of people tell me "I haven't taken art classes" or "I just like to draw so I don't really care about all the technical stuff." The question I want to ask everyone, not just the people who say that, is: "Do you want to improve?"
Color theory and the principles/elements of design were NOT defined or created to make your art life miserable. Intelligent people took time and effort over the course of hundreds of years to put the "whys" of art into word form. Even if you choose not to use them, even if you don

You know, there's a lot of people that are firmly into the "dark" scene. You know them - these metalheads, goths, satanists, the nightly breed of humans, ellusive and mystical, sharp like an emo's razorblade. There's a lot of people who are into guro, into goregrind. They love the viscera, the naked entrails, beasts gorging on bleeding virgins, meathooks piercing living flesh, machinery abominations tearing down the last vestiges of humanity. They brood with demons and monsters, teeth and claws hungering for human meat. They're the hunters, mayhaps?
