Naruto My Last ThoughtsDear deviants who have been following me for my stories, I want to thank you for pulling out the best of me and for being one of the reasons to grow as a person and an artist. Naruto has been my personal reason for starting to share my stories with the internet audience, till then, I just didn't have much courage to do so. Hinata was the first character who gave me the courage and Neji was pretty much my first crush in the series, I can't even form out in words how much they meant to me and how wonderful it was to see them reform their bond in the manga/anime. Naruto's and Sakura's relationship was one of my biggest inspirations and The uneasy Question was the first comic I published online to an overseas audience. I never expected it to become so loved among you and I never expected to spend two more years on the sequel. Same with Terrace. I've been a huge KakaIru and Naru/Sasu fan before, trying my first doujinshi about them as well, but I published them only in my native langNaruto My Last Thoughts9 months ago in Personal More Like This

I know I haven't been around much and it's also because I am terrible at updating my journal on DeviantArt and I'm getting notes asking if I'm dead ... WELL, I am sorry to disappoint, but I am not dead yet and I'm still around, working, eating, living, all that standard people stuff.
SO HERE, HAVE A RANDOM COMIC FOR NOW, which happened while Dexter and I were on our trip in Paris LAST YEAR that I haven't actually drawn until now (I am so late for everything ) :
And something about Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Pumpkin Pie, Fall, Halloween, Turkeys, etc etc in case I forget again and don't update this journal until NEXT YEAR.

PLANET AFL - ARENA 1: MOUNT VOLCANIA
Your fighters have been transported to Mount Volcania, a series of treacherous volcanoes located deep in the Northern Ring of Fire. As you battle against your adversary, you must also be aware of your surroundings. The magma chamber below the surface is beginning to emit lava, gases, and volcanic ash, as the volcano you are in is about to erupt any minute. Your goal is to defeat your opponent before the volcano erupts. Time is of the essence. Who will be the winner?
The Guidelines for this Challenge are as follows:
1) Your battle must start within the volcano, but you are able to take the fight to the top of the volcano, or down the side.
2) Each pairing has been sent to a different volcano within the Mount Volcania region. No other fighters are allowed to appear in your entry.
3) Your options are limited, but you can use any threat within the volcano to your advan
Bad Teachers and Egotistical Jerkwads Good lord, another journal. Well, sometimes I go for a month without writing one, so suffer! :iconinuevillaughplz:Bad Teachers and Egotistical Jerkwads1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I've been asked about this recently, so thought I'd write about it just in case someone else might relate or find it encouraging.
A lot of people are surprised to hear that I have only been painting since 2011. Well, it's true . I had coloured a few line arts here and there before that, but I never really tried at painting. I was dabbling and just slapping on colour, not bothering to figure out the programs or anything. Because I truly didn't believe I could do it.
Backing up a bit, I'm someone who was a traditional artist. I have been drawing with pencils and paper since I was just a little tyke. Naturally, I wanted everything to do with art in school. :iconhandsomeonionplz:
And that's where this little tale turns dark and mildly depressing :icon0inuscreamplz:

Behind the pretty faceI had such a pretty face.Behind the pretty face1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Or at least, that was what they told me when I posted my picture.
I have to admit that I rarely post my face online. Not so much for privacy's sake (I don't have the illusion of privacy, with the NSA around) but more because I've never liked taking pictures pictures. Back in the time, I was probably one of the few young girls that wasn't fond on making selfies, and therefore often had ID's showing either my back, my drawing equipment, or just a drawn image of me. The reason I posted a picture, was because it was for a good cause. An issue that I wanted to raise awareness for myself. The many people that had already posted their real pictures, encouraged me as well. That internet isn't all about faking who you are, but about the 'real' you as well. No matter who you are. Boy or girl, pretty or ugly.

I just came by your profile and saw your art, and was very impressed. I think you have a very nice art style. Now I'm working on this project. It's called <project>. It's an awesome story about <subject>. I'm currently writing the script for it, but I'm planning to make a visual novel. I can't tell too much about the story, since I don't want it to be copied, but it's going to be really cool. The point is; I need illustrators. I'm an excellent writer, but I can't do illustration at all. And therefore, I wanted to ask for your help. I need about 60 pages illustrated and colored. Would you work together with me on this one? I don't have any money to spend, as I'm not an established writer yet. But when the visual novel gets published, you can get a percentage of my profit.
With kind regards,

Raffle? Is that the correct word? Anyway, those of you that follow my polls know that I wanted to do something special for my 300k pageviews. And after... I think it was for 150k, when I was giving 3 months of premium, there were like 3 or 4 winners ( and I didn't have enough points ) I will do this with raffle instead (because there will be only one winner, a lot more people will have a chance to win, plus theres this thing with DA now where your pageviews gets counted when someone visits your gallery as well...) .
Sooo, to get a chance to win free commission (this style ONLY: ) all you have to do is fav this journal. You'll have time until I hit 300k on my front page, after that I'll use random.org to pick a winner

passion into your profession. But there is a way of measuring your chances on being
able to get work and eventually sustain a living from it.
Accepting commissions or freelance for low payment won't help you. You can think any penny counts, but it will lower the worth of your work and damage the market.
How to measure that you are ready?
You probably have high goals, but they are usually not your first step. You must search out the clients who can be that first step. Often found in the card game industry, book cover illustrations and smaller game company's.
Look at the artwork shown by a company such as the card game company: Fantasy Flight games. Compare your skills with the average of their artworks. If it matches yours, you will have a chance. However, keep in mind that those artworks had been done in a limited timeframe, usually within 12 hour

PLEASE, READ THE RULES
NO OBVIOUS MAMMALS
This means no creatures that look heavily based from canines and felines. Humans/Anthros are ok, as long as they look mostly "reptilish"
New tips have also been added to the "avoid" section bellow.
The contest is extended until March 7!

I'm looking for a new creature character(s) I will like. No mammals
I would prefer something like a reptile/snake/wyvern/monster/insect

Winning designs will be mine to keep but you will still get credits for creating them, plus a prize in points or in money (USD, PayPal required) to your choice! If you don't win, you can
DON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah BradleyDon't go to art schoolDON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah Bradley2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The traditional approach is failing us. It's time for a change.
I'VE HAD IT.
I will no longer encourage aspiring artists to attend art school. I just won't do it. Unless you're given a full ride scholarship (or have parents with money to burn), attending art school is a waste of your money.
I have a diploma from the best public art school in the nation. Prior to that I attended the best private art school in the nation. I'm not some flaky, disgruntled art graduate, either. I have a quite successful career, thankyouverymuch.
But I am saddened and ashamed at art schools and their blatant exploitation of students. Graduates are woefully ill-prepared for the realities of being professional artists and racked with obscene amounts of debt. By their own estimation, the cost of a four year education at RISD is $245,816. As way

EVEN MOAR SKIN SWATCHES!
The best way to improve is to draw from real life. That's the best way to learn. If you don't know how to draw a certain angle of a hand or an arm, you shouldn't fudge it, you should always look it up and figure out how to draw it right. Hiding the hands behind the body is a no-no, people! The proof of bsing is easy to see: http://neofox.deviantart.com/journal/ART-knowledge-is-power-282518336
But often it's very hard to weed through the crap to find good stock to use as reference. So here I am, doing the work for you and naming some helpful resources.
I've been teaching my friend Kitteh how to draw, so I'm learning first hand just what steps to take to improve.
There's one very special thing you must do to improve. With this special thing you can go from amateur to pro. And that's PRACTICE. You can get all the references and tutorials you want, buy all the books, save all the tutorials and referenc
