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 Machina4 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 Artwork4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Leonard Nimoy passed awayJust found about this on twitter, such a unfortunate day for all of sci-fi fandoms. RIP Mr Nimoy, I'll remember him not only for Mr Spock, but also for his brilliantly played transformers villains, Galvatron and Sentinel Prime.

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. Here are 5 that I'm questioning...5 Comic Book Truths (that I don't think are true)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

Fan Art Friday: Shiny!
Firefly by Lucas-Zebroski
Even though the television show Firefly only aired for 1 season in 2002, it is mourned by fans till this day. The space-western comedy-drama featuring a renegade crew of misfits who raided to the ends of the universe in their spaceship, Serenity, and called it an honest day’s work, was quick to steal many a viewer’s heart.
Creator Joss Whedon drew inspiration from many sources for the show. Inspiration

Username Changes Now AvailableDeviantART has been around for almost twelve years, and in that time, we've seen artists grow from hobbyists to students to professionals. As a member of any community, your identity can change and grow over time.Username Changes Now Available4 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
For years, we've been getting requests from the community asking for the ability to change usernames. We realize that as an artist, it's important to give you the ability to change your personal brand, just as you change your interests, skills, and art types.
How It Works
Deviants can now change their username in their Settings. To change your username, you must have an active Premium Membership. (The reason there is a "fee" associated with the change is because switching usernames is a complex technical proce

A Pop Culture Interpretation of The Supernatural
Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
Supernatural beings come to serve several purposes:
They kept people on the lighted path of truth and goodness, fearful of exploring beyond;
They were a reminder of the punishment we deser

With all the "art theft" things going on, I wanted to attempt to draw a line between my side of things. The most recent one that seemed to spread all over dA was the fact that someone referenced someone else's piece to make a similar piece. Did they use the linework that the artist drew without permission? (I don't know for sure). I see it all the time mostly with fanart. I don't look at much fanart and the only fanarts that I've done (on this acct.) is Spyro and Kija . Otherwise, it's either personal art or other people's characters. (Which I'm not grouping under fanart because they aren't published books/games/movies, etc) Certain fanarts seem to get more respect than others.

I might resume the Bionicle project during the summer. As of now it will remain on hiatus.
I do think you'll see a 2011-2012 sketch dump though (as I'm always sketching) and you'll probably see a Toa-Mata Wallpaper soon. Unfortunately, you likely wont see any long term rendered and polished work for a while due to focus being placed on my professional site.
What I plan to do for bionicle is a portrayal of Makuta and Matanui as mythological iconography, such as
and a redesign of a Bohrok, TakaNuva and a Rahkshi.
This, however, is a reduction of what i originally planned to do.
I obviously bit off more thanI could chew.
For example I will not be doing the Toa Nuva. Knowing how much time it took to create the original six...I'm not doing them again, lol. Keep an eye open Just in case they ap
