Sketchbook Pro 6So most of you know that I'm a Sketchbook Pro user.Sketchbook Pro 62 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few days back, Autodesk released Sketchbook Pro 6, and I think this is the version that's going to make a lot of people who have YET to experience Sketchbook Pro in full, or haven't really given the past versions a chance, switch over to making it their digital drawing software of choice; heck, even their PAINTING software of choice.
We still have the cleverly-designed user interface, that makes it easy on the eyes and mind when we're brainstorming and sketching. With the handful of new tools introduced, we still have a clutter-free drawing environment, and man, there's some awesome tools this time around. I'll go down the list:
The Brush Library
The main brush toolbar itself has a click-and-drag function, allowing you to store all your often-used brushes in each of the "lanes". You then can click the button on the upper-right and then a fu

When I was about 13, I came home from school and saw my older sister on the computer. I asked her when Mom was going to be home cause I needed her to sign my folder for my teacher. My sister just shrugged and said.
'She's at the hospital.'
I stopped and asked my sister why she was there and I was told, ' She got sick or something and had to have surgery.' I freaked out. I wanted to go to the hospital, I wanted to make sure my mom was okay and my sister told me she would be back in two days and stop freaking out. HOW CAN I?! Well I spent those two days waiting for my mom, praying she was okay until she returned.
When the two days went by, I ran home and found my mom sitting in the living room looking worn out and sleepy and I rushed at her to hug her. She had blankets and ice packs on her chest and
Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex MachinaOK, I think I've calmed down enough to write a review now. Spoilers ahead!Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex Machina3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, let's start off with what worked in the season finale. The animation was just...incredible, the action was exciting and sweeping in its scale, and Zuko's voice was reincarnated as General Iroh the goddamn determinator! which was actually kinda distracting, cause I kept expecting him to be like "I AM SO GOOD AT BEING GOOD!!. Hiroshi Sato showed his true colors as a hate-filled douchenozzle, and Asami showcased her usual class and determination when faced with truly shitty circumstances (on a side note, I've always had a hard time believing that Mr. Sato invented all those airplanes and mechas and stuff, because honestly, when we met him he kinda gave off a Henry Ford vibe, not an "engineering genius" vibe like that crazy eyebrow dude from A:TLA. But whatever, that's a minor point). And of course Naga was a badass...and according to tumblr, there are now people who ship Bolin x Naga. Just...why.

No More Unauthorized ArtworkRegarding the debate of whether comic artists should continue selling unauthorized prints/sketches of characters they don't own, I think Bissette and his legal advisor are 100% correct. So from now on, I won't be doing any sketches or commissions at shows of any character that I don't own. Am I rolling over in fear of Marvel? Maybe, but as it states below, they're in their legal right to come after me if there's ever a dispute. I love to complain about the Big Two, but I can't (in good conscience) get upset at them if I'm breaking the rules myself. Being DC exclusive, maybe I can get a waiver that allows me to sketch DC characters, so I'll keep you updated.No More Unauthorized Artwork3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Well; that was rather good, wasn't it?
Splendid art, voice acting and a compelling narrative on par with any live-action, prime-time series.
The resolution at the end, though, felt a little rushed. While I'm glad there was one, it had an air of finality about it, as though it's uncertain a second season will ever transpire.
If there isn't one; it'll be a crime, given all the work that went into crafting Korra's world.

if they stopped and quit trying
how do you expect to get better? huh?
Just because a person or a lot of people is better than you, that doesn't mean you will quit, I mean, they're not telling you to quit, and some of them will even try to help you get better!
If you feel demotivated because of jealousy of the skills of other people, don't just curl up in a ball forever, yea you can cry for a moment but you must stand and show them what you got
"I'LL SHOW THIS SHITLORD THAT I CAN DO BETTER!" -internally
Take it as a challenge.
Don't you want to be happy? Do you like telling people that you are hopeless and then you will feel sad and the people you talked to will feel sad too?
"You are inspiring and it makes me want to do better!"
Doesn't that sound better? It doesn't just make the person you're telling to, feel better, but it specially makes you feel better as well!

TF2 Contest-- THIS TRAIN IS OVERI have decided the winner(s) and have sent everyone their respective points--and I officially have one last point remaining for the sake of having the contestant prize a specific number.

The next contest will have items from the game as rewards--seeing as how I'm now broke in terms of dA currency.
These items can be anything from hats to weapons to tons and tons of refined metal.
I hope everyone had a nice time and has a nice rainbow-filled day.
Since I'm sick and tired at looking at over 2000 points that I don't plan to ever use (because after they closed down the shop... who really cares anymore. I don't want a premium so...?), I decided that I'm just gonna hold a TF2 contest and give someone literally almost a year's premium.
This is going to be a very casual one--not that many restrictions because it would be like taking away all new weapons and making us use stock for the rest of our lives.
Stock is fun--but only to an extent.

5 Comic Book Truths (that I don't think are true)There are lots of tips, chestnuts, and other pieces of advice that I've heard over the years--tidbits of wisdom passed on from one generation to the next, from professional to professor to prospective student. Some of them are drawing tips, some of them are tricks to dealing with publishers, and some are general guidelines on how to survive in comics. Most of them are useful and true and will stand the test of time, but a few of them have become hackneyed platitudes and have gone unquestioned for too long.

1. READERS WILL ONLY LOOK AT A PANEL FOR 5 SECONDS, SO DON'T SWEAT IT TOO MUCH.
I understand the intention of this bit of wisdom, and I mostly agree with it: drawing great interiors is important, but at the same time, you don't want to get bogged down with small details that most readers won't even notice.
But here's my concern with this: if you treat every panel like it's disposable, then you're less likely to make an impact with reader

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)2 years 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
