Sketchbook Pro 6So most of you know that I'm a Sketchbook Pro user.Sketchbook Pro 63 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
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.

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

Before anything, just allow me to tell just how much I have adored and cherished the love, kindness, support and friendship I have gained from all of you who cared to view what I'd drawn.
Doing these silly (And usually illogical/disturbing) comic-strips and images has literally been one of the highlights in my life, as cheesy and cliché as that may sound, I swear, it's absolutely true. Ever since way back when I started with my couple of watchers right up to this moment with over 19'000 watchers, breaking the 1'000'000 pageview milestone and having amassed over 10'000'000 hits, logging into this account and seeing many, many supportive remarks and friendly comments, watching the favourites rise steadfastly on each deviation, seeing others willing to try improve their own, or return, to drawing (Despite the fact that I still do not wish to be titled as a

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!

Illustrating Westeros: ASOIAF Artists Speak VITo say that Dejan Delic's vector artworks dazzle the eye is an understatement. Elaborate shapes and swirls, ornate detailing, and resplendent colours offer up a veritable feast for any ASOIAF fan. No character, however major or minor, is excluded from this embellished styling that the artist appears to master so effortlessly. Whilst such rich presentation would be a triumph alone, Dejan's true talent resides in making each character's personality - their flaws and foibles, power and prestige - shine just as brightly.Illustrating Westeros: ASOIAF Artists Speak VI4 months ago in Art Features More Like This

We were promised Titanic II, a beautiful replica of the fated RMS Titanic that went down in 1912. We were promised this by Australian billionaire, Clive Palmer. Thousands..no, millions of people around the world heard of his lavish plans to rebuild this Edwardian icon, and many hearts were thrilled by it. I will admit I was one of them. This grand new dame was to be a representative to her Edwardian namesake, and to sail the Trans-Atlantic route like all of the older vessels before her. She was stated again to have sailed by 2016. We are now in 2015. No plans have been made, of even her keel being laid, so there is a guarantee her 2016 voyeur w
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.

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

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

creating fog that slowly surrounds my surroundings...
Have the little urge to touch that Angel.
Her white, soft... fragile skin,
wearing sweet, tasteful perfume,
driving me lightly insane.
I might love her.
I might even hate her.
Miss her, being not real
or she is real, but I just have no right to reach out my hand,
so I could satisfy my need to hold somebody in my embrace.
Our minds are for simple things...
I can't even catch her with my hazy eyes,
afraid that she might see my look, so needy.
It is so hard and that's why -
Things are not of mind to simplify
and all I can do is imagine her to grin.
That innocent, toothpaste commercial smile.
I'm nothing but full of sadness
and she really doesn't mind...
if in a moment I just disappear into the darkness.
Nothing but Bible-black fool,
who's trying to walk on... carry on,
on this jumpy ground.
No living creature is with me on this deserted road,
once belonged to God,
now to emptiness in our hearts and so

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art

Because I Can Do This According To PeopleSo let's say your car breaks down,Because I Can Do This According To People3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And you need a new one.
So you go to a car lot, and the owner of the car says he'll need $2000 for the used car.
Instead of cash or check funds,
You offer the man 400000 microsoft points.
This man stares you down like you're some sort of joke.
You explain to him you don't have cash or check of that high of money, and then you beg him to take your offer.
Now you just look like a joke.
Great job with that one.
Two hours later you get on facebook and promptly complain about how terrible it was that the car salesman
wouldn't agree to your payment, and how unfair and terrible they are.
Next thing you know near all car lots know what you look like, and people on facebook think you're retarded.
Also, great job on that one.
Think about this,
If you're trying to pay bills.
WTF are 400000 microsoft points going to do to help you?
If the car lot -obviously- has a TOS, you will -obviously- look completely retarded trying to buy a car with points.
