My deviantART StoryHello Deviantart!!My deviantART Story2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
EDIT: For the 14th birthday of dA, there is the project through which everyone can gain a badge if he sums up his story on dA. Since I have been doing this recently, I am just going to add some new things that happened and shaped my dA-life since then Enjoy...
When I opened my Message-Center this morning, I got a notice telling me, that today it is exactly 6 month since I joined deviant art. Of course this is my first anniversary I am celebrating. So I am going to do a little roundup with what has been moving me here on da in this time.
Thank you all for your constant support, your care and the incredible response I got within this time! I don't think there would be a similar platform anywhere on the net
I think the first couple of deviants that really impressed me where those:

Project Educate: Pixel ArtThis week is to celebrate and learn more about the art of pixels. Pixel art is defined by deviantART as: "Pixel art drawing, using only the pencil tool, hand laying individual pixels one at a time, under high magnification." (But more on that later ) ClefairyKid and I have put together a week of articles and events that we hope will be informative, interesting and fun.

Back? Not quite...About my breakBack? Not quite...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Despite the increase in activity from me here on DA recently, I'm not entirely "back" in the normal sense of the word. I'm kinda just tip-toeing the waters to see if things have calmed a bit. I'm still trying to get through my issues, with mixed success, and a two month leave of absence isn't going to undo years of stress buildup and stubbornness. But I'm working on it, slowly but surely. You might see some new work here or there, but I don't think I'm ready yet to jump back into doing any of my longer narratives.
In fact, judging by my recent comic's reception, I probably am not ready for a full fledged return just yet...

Big Ben ResponseA succinct summary of the recent complaints:Big Ben Response4 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
MCM London ExpoIf you haven't seen anything from me in a while, it's because I'm in London and don't have ready access to the interwebs.MCM London Expo4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tomorrow is the MCM London Expo. I'll be located at table AB8 in the dealers room NOT in artist alley. So don't look for me in the artist alley because I won't be there! Lol.
Humon and Vitaly have been Trolling each other, which you've probably seen a bit of if you watch either of them. Silly guys...
The convention starts tomorrow and goes through the weekend! Hope to see you there!
PS: I was trying to pick a winner to the contest before I left but ran out of time. Now I won't be able to pick a winner till I get back from London, so sorry about that.
EDIT: I've been informed that we do indeed have an artist alley table... So... I haven't got the foggiest idea where I will be located now. Best to just look all over then! Sorry..
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 Ben4 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.

ThankfulWe don't celebrate Thanksgiving in the Bahamas but being so close to the U.S. a lot of people have adopted their traditions as our own. I'm not a big fan of adopting other cultures holidays and traditions, I believe we should nurture our own and celebrate what makes us all special and unique, but I will say I love the idea of Giving Thanks. There is so much negativity in our world today that it's easy to overlook the amazing and outstanding things we take for granted. I'd like, if I may, to share some things with you that I am most thankful for.Thankful2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the past year my life has taken a drastic turn. Things are finally falling in to place and I am so amazed that it is all finally happening. Earlier in the year we got an awesome apartment. It's so fulfilling to live on your own and be your own boss, the money is a bit heavy to think about but it's so worth it.
Speaking of money…

Contest CLOSED!Wow! I am quite honestly impressed! I was not expecting so many entries, especially with only a week to prepare for it! You've all done a fantastic job! 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!4 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!

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.4 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!

Helmet Updatesafter many years of hiatus on this project. we finally decide to continue this project. apologize for that.Helmet Updates3 years ago in Personal More Like This
many people asking can we wear them for skateboard activity ? if you ask now. the answer is YES.
there will be lots of details changed from the helmet, but the overall look will be still bonehead helmet as you know
many years before.
much more room to breath, not only for cosplay usage, even for long runs of paintballing/airsoft battle usage.
the material will be much thicker, custom led lights, custom ops-core mounts for multiple purpose, urban warfare themed.
there will be 4 color variant for the 1st batch of this helmet. comes with wooden laser cut graphics for the packaging
plus 1 limited edition tshirt and originality certificate signed by me.
for now, we only accept 10(ten) buyer, so hit me up on email/facebook/dA notes/ if you're interested and i will list them 1st.
payment session open at 22 august via 5060.bigcartel.com. the project is already running, preview work
BE QUIET!!!!!So uh... yeah this got out of hand pretty quickly:BE QUIET!!!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll be honest. I wasn't expecting the backlash to be so violent. But I guess I should expect this sort of thing whenever it comes to video games. At any rate, a lot of stuff is being thrown around haphazardly and I wanted to address some of the main complaints/defenses about my criticism of Quiet's design.
"She's got camo skin! She's dressed this way for a reason!"
You know, you can come up with any number of reasons for a character to be scantly clad. But at the end of the day it's still a scantly clad conventionally attractive female character. Not to put to fine a point on it but having Mystique walk around naked because her skin changes color doesn't stop her from being a source of obvious pandering T&A. So I'm sorry, but that whole "you'll be ashamed for slut-shaming her" excuse doesn't hold water with me, especially after Kojima outright said that her design was to sell
