LMS PRINT 2 IS UP FOR PRE-ORDER!!Hello!LMS PRINT 2 IS UP FOR PRE-ORDER!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Long time no talk! Well, after a long road of issues, and a quick sell out of the first run, LMS is finally ready for print again!
Yup, you heard me right. You can now buy the book that nearly half my gallery is about! So please, spread this news around to anyone you know interested. They won't be available forever!
READ CAREFULLY. Also, order before a certain time and get goodies!
First off: thanks for your continued interest in LMS and with tons of emails pouring in over the past year urging us to reprint the book (which many of you reported to have found for $ 500 and more on amazon & eBay), your pleads have finally been heard. So: straight to the good news; we just selected our printing partner for a re-print and now it's time to get the party started for exactly that.
We are producing LMS in Hardcover Edition (223 pages; Size: 17" x 14" x 1") at the price of US-$ 49.00!
So, if you're still intent on picking up a (or several) copy/copies, as you

The lovely Dark Horse Comics was crazy enough to adopt my graphic novel, Last Man Standing: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter, ( CLICK TO PRE-ORDER LMS HERE ) decided to premiere the new edition at SDCC.
I want ALL OF YOU whom are going, to come stop by. I'd love to meet you, talk, maybe even grab food if there's time. You've alll been a part of LMS snce the beginning, so it's my pleasure to continue that support.
Also, there will be LMS toys. Well, one. One big twenty inch statue of LMS's lead hero Gabriel. We also just landed two other deals to create more toys with some pretty substantial companies.
Not to mention posters from LMS AND POPPED CULTURE SERIES, signinings and maybe even hugs for the ladies (if you can get past my girlf

I spent 3 months last summer helping to design the look of the control room as well as the holographic elements and desktop interfaces you see in action. I'm excited to see the full sequences and find out how much of my design the final FX ended up retaining, but from a quick glance I can see quite a lot which is really cool. You can see it a the 0:19 mark in the video below as well.
I'm not sure when I can officially show the work I did, but I'll be sure to find out soon. It might have to wait until the movie comes out at the end of next month.
Anyway, take care!
What art schools can and cannot doWhat art schools cannot do:What art schools can and cannot do1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Art school cannot take you from complete beginner to professional in a few years.
Art school cannot motivate you.
Art school cannot guarantee you a career.
Art school cannot make you enjoy drawing.
What a good art school can do:
Art school can take intermediate drawing skills and develop those into an industry-relevant portfolio.
Art school can introduce you to other artists who will help and encourage you.
Art school can give you advice on developing a portfolio, opportunities to show your work and introduce you to helpful books, blogs and websites.
Art school can give you invaluable experience in meeting deadlines, accepting critiques, and meeting a client's needs.
Basically, what good art schools do is take a gem and polish it. If you aren't passionate about drawing, if you've never drawn before in your life, if you just want to have fun in college or if you're not sure what you want to do with your life, art school will only massively waste your time and

The first thing I had to do was create a sample. What would the pages look like? What is a Killbook?
In the story, before Gabriel breaks out of Level-9, he is introduced to an "Agent-O, a character that gives Gabriel the documents needed to begin this revenge quest. Inside of the documents are bios and information on all of the characters Gabriel will meet/team-up with/or kill.

To inspire.(Little long, but hopefully you'll read)To inspire.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When I first sold LMS to Paramount, a lot of people asked me: "How much money did you get?" "You're probably rich now, right?"
I mean, the solid gold mansion I bought was just a little gift to myself...but...
Ever since I was little, I've known I wanted to draw. From the day my parents put a pencil in my hand, this was my future. I just knew it, I had that gut feeling. So I stuck to it, and thankfully it took me to heights I'd have never imagined possible. Now with my new book Redemption heading off to studios soon for a hopeful movie package, I can't wait to see where this new road takes me.
That said, there's something else that tops all of this.
The other night I went out to visit my girlfriend's cousin and her family. Incredibly kind people with very sweet kids. Other than the two parents, there were 3 kids, but the one who caught my interest was the eight-year old boy, Diego.
Diego, shy, tiny, slender, reminded me of myself when I was his a
When did we decide that......the best way to view a GUI is on an angle, mocked up on an iPhone screen, with epically shallow depth of field?When did we decide that...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I don't care whether or not it's an app designed FOR the iPhone. If you take a photo of an iPhone on an angle with low DoF, absolutely ANYTHING will look good on it, even a pure white screen. I shit you not. The details and reflections in the phone's body make up at least 90% of the visual satisfaction, completely taking focus away from the actual GUI. "But it shows how it would look in the real world." No mate it doesn't. My human eyes don't have the DoF of an expensive Canon macro lens, nor do I use my phone holding it at a 45 degree angle, and sat in the middle of a professionally lit photography studio. When I buy food, I don't need to see a picture of somebody eating it.
On the flip side to making otherwise hideous designs look like the most amazing thing ever, a photo mock up also makes truly beautiful design look like crap. If you've spent days on end hammering away

How correctly install GDIPPHi, i receive a lot of messages by people who want install GDIPP( cause GDI++ is crappy!!), so here is the good way:How correctly install GDIPP3 years ago in Personal More Like This
➊ Install GDIPP 0.7.6 in Registry( not in services, you will see it during the installation) , download: http://code.google.com/p/gdipp/downloads/list
➋ Copy the 2dll's in "C:\Program Files\gdipp" to "C:\Windows\system32"( for 64 users: 4 dll's: "sytem32"( for 64 bit dll's)+"syswow64"( for 32 bit dll's) ), like: http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/423903436372Capture.png
➌ Restart( done)
Edit ( 12 oct 2012):
Now, i use 0.9.1 version, it works better and no replacement of dll needed ( only install it and go..!), if you use Firefox or other: uncheck "material acceleration..." in Firefox ( or other) options!!
If some characters look a little craps in some applications: make an exeption in "C:\Program Files (x86)\gdipp\gdipp_setting.xml" with your notepad.

Hunger Games TrailerThey finally released the new Hunger Games trailer this past Monday, so I thought I'd share it with everyone! Unfortunately, none of my design work is in it, but I think that's due in part to the visual effects nature of what they had me doing, and that my scenes were filmed towards the end of the shoot. I'm sure they're working hard on it as I type this so I wish them luck! The visual FX tests I saw a couple months back were already shaping up, and those were ultra rough.Hunger Games Trailer2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Before we get into the thick of things, we didn’t have a photo of our huge plasma screens hanging from the convention ceiling to share in our Day 1 recap, so we vowed to get that to you today! The 11 foot wide screens stream amazing works of art from Artists' Alley participants to the whole convention floor!
In Comic-Cons past, the foot traffic In Artists’ Alley got busier and busier as the week progressed, and this year is no exception. There’s something magical about speaking one-on-one with a deviant, learning their experiences, hearing how they started as an artist, and how far they’ve come. It’s an emotional connection to make with someone who was practically a stranger a few moments ago -- and then you realize you’re not really strangers when you
