dA Artist Raising $20k for LGBT Animated FilmdA Artist Raising $20k for LGBT Animated Film1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
New York City-based artist Alex Myung (~alexmyung) has started a Kickstarter project to raise $20,000 to create Arrival, an animated short film with a focus on the theme of coming out. Equalitopia sits down with Alex to discuss the project.
Currently, the project has raised almost $4,000 from 74 different backers, averaging out to about $52 per backer. Keep in mind that Kickstarter projects are “all or nothing,” meaning that if the project doesn’t reach its funding goal by Wednesday, February 20th, no funds will be transferred to the project.
Equalitopia: Could you tell us briefly about the storyline of Arrival?
Alex: Arrival is about a young boy growing up
Activity vs. Community When combining millions of artists working with different media, style, experience level, etc. being here can become overwhelming and finding your "place" can seem almost impossible. Throughout the last few weeks I've noticed more and more people asking "how can I be more active?" and "how do I get involved in the community?"Activity vs. Community3 months ago in Personal More Like This
These are both the same question and completely different questions at the same time. Though the answers to both are quite similar if not the same the difference between activity and community is huge! We're going to cover the answers and difference to both of those in this article.
There are three basic ways to being active on dA and getting involved the community. Everything after this will actually lead right back to these three things.

The Committed Canvas:icontechgnotic:The Committed Canvas3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tattooing has existed since the very beginnings of Neolithic human expression and has since those ancient beginnings continued to be a reliable flash indicator of personality type. There are those people who get tattoos and there those people who simply do not. Even though the social opprobrium for getting inked has greatly disappeared in recent years, and even though skin art has become almost boringly de rigueur amongst rock guitarists and other entertainers, there is still one element that separates the tattooed from the non-tattooed in terms of artistic appreciation: commitment.
Tattoos may be the first “interactive” art form. The art lover doesn’t just buy an artist’s artwork – he or she becomes one with artwork, he or she commits to becoming a living canvas for the artwork, he or she, by choosing the tattoo to be borne forever, shares authorship with the tattoo artist of the artwork.

Your thoughts on Seniority and CVOld folks and hat standsYour thoughts on Seniority and CV3 weeks ago in Art Features More Like This
Oh no, not another journal about this!
So after going through some backlog, I saw Thiefoworld's poll, "Should people be allowed to suggest themselves for seniority?" where he asks for your opinions on whether one should be allowed to suggest themselves for seniority or not. farand had posted a suggestion thread suggesting the reasons for making someone a senior be made publicly available.
What are your thoughts/opinions on these matter?
You can most certainly write your thoughts about it in the poll and/or that specific suggestion, but are also welcome to put your opinions in here additionally if you wish.
Are you doing things just to be a senior?

PE: Traditional ShadingTraditional ShadingPE: Traditional Shading2 weeks ago in Art Features More Like This
Hello. This is iDJPanda on the topic of shading!
When I usually start into the shading process of something, I always struggle to see which kind of technique I can use to give the piece of art the type of wow that I want. But just like anything, there are MANY ways to do it! This can help you use different shading techniques for different textures. I'm gonna give you a few different ways you can shade (Try to shake it up! ). If you have any other ways you shade, please feel free to tell me!
One of my favorite, in this technique of shading, you go against what all elementary teachers told you. You scribble! When you shade like this, you'll come out with something that looks like this.
Using circular motions, you generate different shades. Spending more time, swirling makes the certain areas you want darker, and the less you swirl makes the other areas lighter.

DRAW IT AGAIN: Points Contest! Alright! Let's get this contest going!DRAW IT AGAIN: Points Contest!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
- Redraw an older piece of art! It must be in your DA gallery somewhere! The goal of the contest is to see who has made the most improvement over time!
- Maximum of 6 years old please! It would be too easy to beat a drawing from when you were 3. No newer than one year old!
- The redrawing must be newly made! No old redraws!
- Try to keep to the original style of the drawing! It will be hard to see improvements if you draw the same subject entirely different! Try to stay true to the original in your re-draw as much as possible! (If it's not colored, don't color it in the re-draw for the contest! You can of course, color it for yourself. )

I've been meaning to write this in some form or fashion for a while now. Orignally I was going to try to write it as a Cracked article (which I still may) but these are in my view among the most important things to remember when struggling to get into the comic business:
1. It's not just about how good you are. Comics are a highly competitve medium and everyone wants to get a shot at their favorite book. Many of the people trying to get that break have great skills, and i'm certain fine ideas. But can you meet a deadline? How well do you communicate your ideas or issues with your Editor/Writer/ Penciller/Inker? How reliable have you been on the books you've done in the past? How easy are you to work with?
Honestly most of these questions are more important in many ways than how talented you are. As an artist you are not an island unto yourself. Ask anyone whose been in the business how long it took them to get r
Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)To many people in comics, I only arrived a few years ago with Joe the Barbarian. Then came Hellblazer (completed in 2008 before I began working on Joe), American Vampire: SOTF, and finally Punk Rock Jesus. Once in a while someone will mention Off Road (an OGN I did with Oni back in 2004), but for the most part it seems like I've been published only these last few years when in fact I've been published professionally for a decade now.Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This isn't a plea to have everyone go back through my previous work--in fact, I'm glad that a lot of the books I've done over the years aren't on readers' radars. I'm proud of it all, but the books above are a nice, tight group of titles to be associated with. They're all in a similar brand, they're all recent, they all have good creators/publishers associated with them, and the artwork is mostly consistent. Go back further than that, and you'll see artwork that looks nothing like the stuff I'm doing these days. (Although Off Road still holds up to some de

It is undeniably an era of free verse. We tend to think of formal poets as stiff and antiquarian, “fools in old style hats and coats.” We have been freed from the fetters of form by such revolutionaries as Ezra Pound, Amy Lowell, and William Carlos Williams. The Imagists and the Modernists fought hard to win respect for free verse. Why on earth would we look back?
As Peter Campion gently remind us, When [Ezra] Pound demanded "no word that does not contribute to the presentation," and even when [William Carlos] Williams railed against "the traditionalis
About RC2In a galaxy not far away, a space station was built and funded by the world’s richest man: Ronald Jackson. This project was overseen by his partner, Carter Johnas. But after Jackson’s unforeseen death, the vision and completion of the space station was pressed entirely upon Carter.About RC21 year ago in Personal More Like This
Unlike the late mogul's unrealistic and, in Carter's blunt words, “childlike dreams and piggish affairs,” Carter looks to keep the Roulette City Space Station quite the opposite of the city it was modeled after. While the tradition of the Roulette City yearly tournament shall live on in the station, Carter aims to keep the event more organized and less brutish than Jackson’s original vision. Will all this effort play out favorably? Only time and broken noses will tell.
Contestants will fight one on one each round and the last one standing in the end wins a huge cash prize and advertisement.
