I just finished up a 5 part comic writing tutorial run through on my blog and figured, since there are so many comic book fans and creative-types here, I'd post links to them here in case any of you might find them useful/interesting:
Part 1: Brainstorming
Part 2: Story Pacing
Part 3: Page Planning
Part 4: Scripting
Part 5: Dialogue

I'm teaming up with SkillShare to offer classes!Hey everyone! So I've been in talks with the folks over at SkillShare.com to design and offer classes about drawing and illustration for their upcoming new topic sectors of their site.I'm teaming up with SkillShare to offer classes!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've always loved to share my knowledge and feedback for free, but the unfortunate truth is that it's incredibly hard to do that when you're flat broke almost 100% of the time. So at least through SkillShare I can make money while providing you guys with even higher-quality learning resources. SkillShare isn't a live, real-time service. Instead, the classes are based around the production of videos and additional materials that you attack at your own pace. [Think DigitalTutors but... not expensive.] Then you work on projects that I assign and share them with the rest of the class, where I and your peers talk and offer feedback and help one another. It's supportive and collaborative!
Now, what topics would you most want to see me cover as courses? What wo

First of all, let me warn you that by the end of this journal entry, you may find yourself sick of my face. (If you aren't already.) I'll be using mostly myself as an example for the things I'm going to discuss, because I'm the only person I can poke fun at without restrictions.
I get asked a lot of questions about these cosplay photos that most of you have come to know me for. Sometimes it's about the techniques we use, requests for tips and advice for other people who want to do something similar. Other times, the comments come from people who aren't familiar with cosplay, but are curious about it and are interested to know more. So I thought of making this li
Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Save Money on WigsWigs are fantastic for bringing a character to life, but they can be very pricey. Here are a few tips to make the most of your wig budget.Save Money on Wigs1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. Buy during con. Shopping in the convention dealer's room saves on shipping and also allows you to look at wigs up close before you buy.
2. Follow/subscribe. Some wig companies offer sales at random times that they announce through newsletters and social media.
3. Enter contests. Some wig companies offer giveaways or contest prizes that include gift certificates or even a whole wig. That being said, please show some self-awareness and don't be THAT person who is always bugging people to vote for them.
4. Share with friends. If money is tight, borrowing or trading wigs with friends can be a great alternative to b

I started this project months in advance of the shoot. I knew creating 200ish skulls would be long and arduous so I allotted myself 6 months from day 1 to the final images. To make the skulls, I simply used a skull cake making mold but baked paper mache instead of cake. I basically had my oven going for 2 months straight, making around 3 skulls per day. I have to give a big thank you to my mom for letting me take her oven hostage and fuming our house with burning paper smell (:
Here are some of the completed skulls. I'm spray painting them cream since some of the skulls caramelized in the oven. When you bake skulls everyday, it starts to become a habit and sometimes I forgot and left them in the oven for half a day :

I'm extremely excited to launch a brand new Art Camp today.
In addition to the first Art Camp program that has already helped hundreds of students, there's now Art Camp 2: an alternate track of material with a similar focus on honing your fundamental art skills. You don't need to take Art Camp 1 before you take 2. You can even sign up for both at the same time.
A couple of the new features in Art Camp include a private forum and a host of professional artists giving regular critiques (Sean Murray, Randy Gallegos, Tristan Elwell, and Adam Paquette, to name a few). I can't tell you how excited I am to get started.
As always, I really appreciate it if you share and tell your friends abou

Hey everyone! I listened to some of your input, and my SkillShare class "Creating Illustrations with Dimension" is posted and ready for early enrollments! I'm still working on the classes video content right now, and it's slated for a mid-January release. Click below to check it out!
This class is going to be more than just a regular tutorial on perspective. Aside from going over everything you'd need to know about perspective, It's also going to have quite a few recorded demonstrations of drawing scenes and commentary about best practices and considerations in different situations. I'm making the videos as high quality as I can, complete even with well designed animated explanations! I've also grown quite a bit as an artist over the last 5 years since I wrote that brief tutorial here in my gallery. There's a lot I couldn't include to begin with due to size limitations, and I have so much more to say now! These video lessons will be a

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.

I Don't Tolerate Art ThievesI tolerate my fans, watchers or people who favs, collects artworks for inspirations, make an adaptation, draw something similar or close resemble to my style or work; but taking my work or even other good artists' work directly and slapping it into your DevART gallery OR even from Tumblr, Reddit, CGHub or whatever art gallery site, blog and shit, without permission, violating my copyright and signature stamp, and not even acknowledging the origin, source or rightful owner of the work is down right disgusting.I Don't Tolerate Art Thieves2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You make me lose my respect to you as either a fan, an aspiring artist or an online friend. I trust all my watchers and fans and new visitors, and I don't expect any of you to be perfect, but there are boundaries and stealing other people's hard work and effort is one of them.
Thank you to a noted few who report to me about the art theft. You are awesome, and I love you.

But man was it popular... and man, everyone else who liked what i liked seemed to really dig it...

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

So you wanna be an artist?Hello fellow deviants. So, looking to be a better artist? Wanna improve? Well I got some tips for you. Drawing is fairly easy, really. It just takes greater skill to draw something good. It takes time and patience. Lots of practice will help you greatly! I've been drawing since 4 years old. 17 years later, here I am continuing to draw because I have a passion for art. I've always loved art. If you wanna be an artist, you gotta have that passion, that need to draw. Remember now that it takes lots of time and patience. Lots of studying will help. It's all skill. If you are not proud of what you drew, don't bring yourself down. Just look at the mistakes and tell to yourself, how can I improve? Practice, practice, practice. It makes better. Look around for inspiration, it's everywhere. I remember coming upon my favorite artists' works and thinking, I'll never be that good. But don't let that sadden you. Just work hard, put a lot of effort into your drawings. If you don't have patience, whySo you wanna be an artist?9 months ago in Personal More Like This
