It was quite refreshing and hopefully it's been long enough to recharge my batteries because I have a LOT to do!Posters, Conventions, CD, and Dr.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Conventions are creeping up on me. In about a month's time I'm going to be in London and that's got me starting to freak out. I've gotta get enough stock pooled together, find out how to ship it to London without it costing an arm and a leg, and work out my itinerary. I'll also be at the MCBA Spring Con the week before in Minneapolis/St.Paul and then immediately after the London con I'll be in Iowa for QC-Anime Zing! Gyaah!
For the London convention all of us Fresh Epics artists are writing stories for an anthology book. We're all going to be featured in it. Me, Humon, Stupid Fox, Romantically Apocalyptic, Boggart, Acero Tiburon, etc. I'm proud to say I've finally gotten my pages in! Yay!
Along with my long list of "to-do" th

It's going to be very hard to pick out the winner in this batch. 44 submissions in 7 days. That's pretty impressive everyone, and you all did a great job!Contest CLOSED!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My plan now is to spend the next couple days looking over all your entries and making up my mind. Before I leave for London I will notify the winner and make a post about it. When I get to London I'll have the posters and books prepared and shipped to the winner.
In the meantime, I suggest taking a peek at all the wonderful artwork you guys did!

Quick Tips: On Referencing AnatomyReference from real life whenever possible.Quick Tips: On Referencing Anatomy4 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you reference or copy from another artist's studies/sketches/art, you may be copying their mistakes as well. Furthermore, an artist's studies are their notes and --just like with history or chemistry notes-- copying someone else's notes will not help you fully understand the material. To completely understand anatomy, you must take your own notes and build your own understanding through observation.
This is probably a no-brainer for many artists but... scruffynerfherder and I were talking about this last night, and with the increase of "anatomy studies" showing up on dA's front page, it's been on my mind. DA's resource category has some great material, but I also feel like there is a lot of misleading information taught by amateurs who really probably shouldn't be teaching things like shading or anatomy, because they have a less-than-stellar grasp on it themselves. I'm not trying to knock anyone here, but it's a bit tr

Big Ben ResponseA succinct summary of the recent complaints:Big Ben Response3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"You somehow magically gained the ability to draw near-photorealistic buildings overnight and you choose to use this amazing newfound skill to draw a building in the background? Get serious dude."
This is a redrawing of Big Ben (using a different reference photo BTW) to show that I am actually capable of drawing architecture just fine. I only used the computer for the poster version because I wanted more control over it.
I'm gonna be leaving Big Ben the way it is in the poster. There's nothing to "own up to" about it other than saying "sorry I used such a recognizable image source of a popular and well known landmark as reference." I did not trace.
Curious that so many of the people crying "copyright infringement" over me using reference are also the same people who take my comics and make "parodies" of them by cutting, rearranging, and re-uploading th

It's That Time Once MoreHello all!It's That Time Once More3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Concerning my last journal post, I've been having quite the difficult time on resolution numero dos--that being to doodle at least once per day to sharpen skills and heighten activity on this page. Sadly, it seems that I've lacked, err, "proper" inspiration as I have completely seem to have lost motivation to draw or doodle in the slightest. And anything I currently produce is not up to par with my earlier works.
However, there seems to be more to it.
For those who may not have known, (pertaining to no one at all haha.) you can safely assume that I mainly draw anime. While this certainly is true, I also have a knack into drawing realism and appear to handle it much better than anime. However, I also seem to have a whacky pattern concerning the two...once I feel that I am "sucking" at one of the two styles, it's a red flag indicating that I should focus on the other and thus I draw the other awfully well (In my case) and vice versa.
As odd as that may sound, this is exactly w

Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?

Blending Tutorial by acidlullaby :thumb146178
Big BenSo in case you haven't heard yet, some kind YouTuber found the reference image I used to draw Big Ben for my London poster, warped and skewed it to match the angle, and made a rather catchy song proclaiming how I traced it while the image flickers back and fourth between the photo and my drawing as "proof."Big Ben3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know I have haters out there, and some of them seem to have unhealthy obsessions with finding fault in everything I do, but this is taking it pretty far, don't you think? Even if it were traced, Big Ben is such an iconic image that you'd be hard pressed to find a different angle to work with, especially since it's box-shaped and all sides look the same.
I should probably point out that if you see pixelation in the tower, it's because the whole image has been reduced and saved at only 60% normal JPEG compression. It's a trick used to keep the image good enough to be seen but bad enough to be printed, thus encouraging sales on the larger non pixelated poster.

Back On The TrackWell, this is a very long absent... I haven't really open this DA account of mine since... when? 1-2 years ago? My university tasks were getting more and more fierce and somehow the tired mind and body just couldn't keep up with it. So I went to sleep early, relaxing, and had some fun with friends. And somehow, I ended up playing often and even more often. At that point I had already released my passion in drawing and painting, both traditionally and digitally.Back On The Track1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Even after graduating, I've already forgot about those times when I just want to draw something better. But one day, just around 1 month ago, :iconarcanedist: and :iconloone-wolf: somehow made me felt those emotions once again.. and thanks to them, I tried to draw again and train myself again up to this day hopefully this feeling and spirit won't waver again.... ever again!
So yeah, felt relieved to get to my old passion: to draw better!
I will focus on digital painting from now on, and hopefully I can

Bad news for the RKs fans comunity. DigiField07 it's an annoying art thief. This person has her galery full of RKs stolen material from pixiv. She doesn't have enough by stealing Sasakaz' galery, she is taking every single picture of RKs she finds in pixiv. She was already reported, but as always, DA staff is doing nothing about it. Sasakaz was also notified. This person was blocked from our group since she was trying to upload the stolen material to our galeries and try to affiliate her group of herself ._. with us. I already explained her what is she doing but she doesn't understand and keeps trying to submit and affiliate with our group, and sending invitations to join hers.
People: do not fave the stolen material. you're contributing with the stealing and giving her more reasons to keep doing this! Help to stop her and give a ban to this thief by sending reports to DA staff until they listen! ._.
