Development and You: A Guide to Dynamic CharactersIf there’s one thing people love to create, artist or writer, novelist or comic artist or casual doodler, it’s a character. Creating your own character opens up a world of storytelling possibilities for you, enabling you to control their destiny, to take them to far off places where they can fight dragons and dinosaurs and robots made of lasers and--ahem. I’m getting ahead of myself. When an author creates a character, however, there is one thing that they desperately want to avoid: the infamous Mary Sue, chief destroyer of interesting plotlines and worshipped by all--except, of course, the reader. A Mary Sue is the bane of any writer’s existence, her rainbow hair waving in the wind like some kind of sick banner of plot destruction.Development and You: A Guide to Dynamic Characters3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There’s a lot more to a Mary Sue than an impressive grocery list of skills, color-changing eyes, and giant tits, though. You may be asking yourself ‘How do I avoid making an unrealistic character?’

How to Get a Stolen Image Removed from a WebsiteThere's this wonderful thing called the DMCA - the Digital Millennium Copyright Act - which requires websites to remove content that is stolen intellectual property. This includes photos, sketches, written documents, and many other forms of digital media. Nearly all websites which host media content will have a DMCA takedown report form so you can report stolen images electronically.How to Get a Stolen Image Removed from a Website1 year ago in Personal More Like This

IT IS TIMESeriously.IT IS TIME3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The musical revolution of the world should, no, must be introduced into the midst of all artists here. Music being available on deviantART is something that I would have expected long ago. It is an art form that travels through the core of a person and evokes feeling of sudden realization or just sweet lulling bliss. I know it will be difficult, but it should at least be tried.
I have only come across one person of deviantART (Who is absolutely brilliant let me say) Who has been able to upload music on deviantART quite cleverly if I say so my self. You have probably heard of this awesomeness that is RainCookie
She created this:
When I saw it, I realized just how deviantART could discover great talent such as hers! It is an original composition. Accessing music on this site needs to be made easier because we are missing out on great talents! We could have someone on deviantART who could create something as great as this:

A little stressed...Personal Art?What? I hardly know the meaning of the word anymore XDA little stressed...Personal Art?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, I've been finding myself a little stressed these past few weeks...I am trying to transfer colleges, my brother moved out for college, I have so much work...everything is just so stressful.
And then I looked back on my workload for the summer and realized that I really haven't created anything for myself. Art is really what keeps me going and feeling happy...the fact that I haven't really taken any time for myself this summer was quite a bummer. I just want one piece to hang up in my room to call my own.
I'm not making this journal to whine though! Quite the opposite. I found myself sketching out a large dragon on a piece of 24inch bristol board this morning, and I knew I wanted to finish him This project could take a few days, but I am hell-bent on getting it done. It really would be nice to finish him and have something big all to myself It seems like all of the big works I create nowad
Okami 2 on Wii U and latest Tomb Rider reference?Hello thereOkami 2 on Wii U and latest Tomb Rider reference?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few days ago some friends of mine sent me a message pretending Okami 2 was announced for the Wii U.
Of course they only checked french websites which are well-known to be bullshi* if I may say and totally innacurate. So I've made more inquiries, searching everywhere and everything I could find.
I ended up with many english websites pretending that Hideki Kamiya said he was all for it, that he'd be happy to make an Okami 2 on the Wii U and ready for it if Capcom was to agree.
If you don't know who H.Kamiya is, he worked on the story of the original Okami and also directed it. However, he didn't take part in the Okamiden game which makes the previous affirmation unlikely( I mean, if he didn't take part in Okamiden it was just weird to see him on Okami2; it could be possible but pretty uncertain).
So again I took a look at the sources of the rumour.
Which is a tweet on H.Kamiya's twitter. He is not saying in any way that he's planning to work on it. In fact he's not sayin

Poet of Lovers & Rebels, Poet of Dreamersby MARX77
As is the case with all artists, poets too are greatly influenced by the world around them and how they perceive it.
The splendor of the heavens above, the dynamics of the earth beneath their feet. The uncertainty of life, the inevitability of death. But more importantly, a poet's inspiration comes from what they carry within themselves; their memories, relationships, their dreams, joy and grief. Verses borne of turmoil and tragedy decades ago continue to resonate to this day and are as relevant now as they were back then. Truly poetry is an art form for the ages!

SYE: What do you bring with you?What do you bring with you when you go to an Artist Alley?SYE: What do you bring with you?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Usually, I'm in a mad panic to get together all my stuff the night before I leave, but I've started building up two AA boxes for myself, so I can always have everything I've known to need in the past in one easy-to-grab spot. This includes all my products in one box, and all my smaller setup equipment in the other box, including the cash box, pens, highlighters, tape, extra paper, and whatever I can think of that would benefit me while being behind a table for ten hours. If I don't have a checklist, I tend to forget something important, like water and snacks, lol. But I know that due to everyone's different experiences, everyone brings slightly different things.
So, what do you bring to Artist Alleys?

The book looks fantastic and I can't wait to read through it in person. Lots of people contributed art to make the book and I look forward to giving each of them a personal thanks.
It means more to me than I can say that I have fans who care so much about my work and think so highly of me to spend their time and money on such a unique and cool keepsake.

Unstable Cannibal Zombie Bunny NunsI recently learned that the stereotypical "Japanese Fan Girl" is not some sort of mythical sasquatch of popular culture. I know they exist because my work somehow attracted the attention of one.Unstable Cannibal Zombie Bunny Nuns3 years ago in Personal More Like This
She showed up online one day and started posting weird fan-art and (thanks to google translate) weirder messages.
It was amusing, if a little creepy. Especially when someone found a few pictures she had drawn of a decidedly underage version of myself being violated by tentacles.
I let that slide because, hey; she was a Japanese Fan-girl. They're innately odd.
But then it turned out she was actively following me around the internet, frequenting the same sites and forums as me. Specifically B3TA; a place where you really shouldn't go unless you speak English, have a tough skin and an understanding of serrated British humour.
Fan-girl did not, and was subsequently torn to shreds.
Despite everyone's advice, however (including mine and most of the B3TAns) she kept going back. As such, I don't have m
No Death Star for you.I didn't know this until now, but the White House is obliged to respond to to a petition with over 25,000 signatures. This meant they HAD to dignify the request of 30,000+ US citizens that the US construct a full sized, functional Death Star with an answer.No Death Star for you.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not quite sure what percentage of those 30,000+ citizens realise that using a planet-destroying laser to take out people on the planet on which you live is an ever-so-slightly flawed agenda.....

Happy Holidays!Ohh it's been a looong while. No I'm not dead, but I almost did lose my drawing arm. Around Thanksgiving I somehow got a severe infection on the left forearm. My hands blew up like a balloon. Had to spend a week and a half in the hospital. Spending so much time there makes you think. I was thinking how much I was neglecting this page. Next year I have a resolution to keep updating this page with art.Happy Holidays!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I was bad. I couldn't finish The Lounge yet. I had all the time too. I was too busy working on Salamanstra. I should've finished The Lounge first. Both comics will resume next year!
As of now I'm still recovering. I have tubes connected to me at the moment and I can't wait for them to be gone. I've been getting back into the groove of drawing. It feels so weird when you don't draw for so long.
Thank you for all the love and support. I definitely will give the love back somehow. <3
Always be thankful for the good health you have!
Have a safe and Happy Holidays!
V4 Sneak Peek #9: Shading Dark ShadowsI love this part.V4 Sneak Peek #9: Shading Dark Shadows8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Shading is when the flat colors come to life, light falls on the scene, shadows form, and magic glitters.
Twenty pages of Volume 4 are shaded and ready to roll- ten more, and the first Chapter will be done.
The shading is going at a good clip thanks entirely to Liz and our intrepid freelancers- THANK YOU GUYS! They're laying down the hours of work it takes to block in the flat colors, paving the road to a finished book.
And sometimes they add a little extra...

V4 Sneak Peek #8: Pencils DONE!Good morning, sir!V4 Sneak Peek #8: Pencils DONE!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Or madam. As you prefer.
I have an update- the reports are true. Volume 4 pencils are done! Every story page in the book is penciled, and merely awaits color, your eminence.
Chapter 10 is blocked, and nearly all of Chapter 11. Chapter 12 is in the works. So I ought to be able to bulldoze in and start shading up a storm. I'm hoping I can KO about a Chapter's worth of shading every month.
To hit that stride, I'll have to take a break here and build a Prelude pad, KO a few commissions, try to get caught up on e-mails and... egads, when is the last time I replied to someone in the art accounts?
Bad, bad David.
I'm being stingy with samples from Volume 4 here because I want to avoid spoilers. But have some random art advice:
One of our freelancers was interested in how to draw fabric- what makes it look natural, that sort of thing. I doodled this up. The most helpful analogy we dis
