Farewell DeviantartI've given this a lot of thought and I've decided to leave DA. Both of my biggest comics have gotten their own home now and there's really no reason for me to stick around here any longer. It's also clear that enough people here want me gone anyway, so now is a perfect time to pack my things and move on. I'll be leaving up my gallery for a few days and then slowly phasing it out over the coming weeks.Farewell Deviantart3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Turtles Production Shut DownVICTORY!Turtles Production Shut Down3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Paramount has shut down pre-production on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot over "script problems".
Translation; Paramount realised that if they continued down the path Bay was going, fans would probably burn their studios to the ground.
With luck (and a dollop of common sense) the project will be shelved altogether and the IP left fallow until competent directors/producers are brought on board.

Dark art is an incredibly versatile genre. It can be mixed, mashed up, and paired with several other different art styles whether it be surreal, conceptual, science fiction - the list goes on and on. Not only that, but's it's often directly associated with and compared to other art genres, mainly the emotional art genre. So then, what makes something dark? What makes dark art so unmistakably it's own genre? Let's find out!
A Sinister Feeling
Sinister, giving the impression that something harmful or evil is happening or will happen. For me, the word sinister describes dark art the best. While there are certain colors and subject matters that are often associated with dark art, I believe it transcends visuals. All you really need is t

I think a number of things in regards to what the OP was saying were seriously taken out of context. I'm also going to say upfront that I don't really watch the Sherlock show, and, yes, I am fine with slash and femmeslash and all that on many occasions. That being said, I find their post, despite it being geared towards the SH fandom, to be incredibly applicable with a number of fandoms. While reading their post, I never once got the vibe the OP was saying anything remotely close to "slash is bad" or "asexuality is bad" or "you're not a real fan if you didn't read the original Holmes books." To be honest, I don't think they were even saying (or even implying), "you're a shitty fan if you like slashing these characters and you like porn of them."
Honestly, I think the main point of their post wasn't you're

The crowds have voted and the topic shall be:
But of course it’s not that easy. The twist is to find inspiration in the mythology of your native country or the country you live in now!
Even if you don’t find a personal connection I’d like you to see this as part of the challenge – find inspiration in what your country’s history has in store. And don't give me the "we have no mythology"-excuse, every country has mythology, legends, fairytales I'm sure you find lots of interesting stories if you do a little bit of research.
Now, that being said: If you know your family’s roots (I’m looking at you, US-folks) and would rather

BEFORE WATCHMEN & AH!Well, the word is out: DC Comics is returning to the world of WATCHMEN! And I am drawing all four issues of the DOCTOR MANHATTAN miniseries. First sign of the Apocalypse? You bet!BEFORE WATCHMEN & AH!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's great to finally be able to talk about this project. I signed on AGES ago, and have kept mum about it, until now!
WATCHMEN is arguably the greatest superhero comic ever produced, and without a doubt my absolute favorite. Being allowed to draw these amazing characters isn't actually a dream come true: I never thought something like this would happen. I'm pretty nervous, but having fun so far.
My history with WATCHMEN goes way back. In 1986 I was working at Thunder Road Comics in Burlington, New Jersey, and I sold every issue of WATCHMEN as they came out. It was a pretty amazing time: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS was also shipping, so superhero comics were enjoying a banner year. The mullets, parachute pants, and

Scary Stories Now With Less ScaryA lot of you may remember reading Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark at some point growing up, whether it was from your school library, from a bookstore, from friends or from family. You may also remember some of the unforgettably disturbing nightmarish artwork that helped said stories permanently stain the walls of your young mind (I certainly do. I once remember reading one of the Scary Stories tales that involved a man hammering a nail into the symbolic heart of a witch on a tree and the illustration of the scene right before where witch falls down dead from that story still sticks in my mind).Scary Stories Now With Less Scary3 years ago in Personal More Like This

The Story: Icarus
Son of Daedalus who dared to fly too near the sun on wings of feathers and wax. Daedalus had been imprisoned by King Minos of Crete within the walls of his own invention, the Labyrinth. But the great craftsman's genius would not suffer captivity. He made two pairs of wings by adhering feathers to a wooden frame with wax. Giving one pair to his son, he cautioned him that flying too near the sun would cause the wax to melt. But Icarus became ecstatic with the ability to fl

There are a few things I'd like to point out regarding proper ways to act in there.
First off, we're all friends in there.
We don't have to tip-toe around the political correctness obstacle course any time we post something in the chat. Hang out in there long enough, and you'll see I'm just as happy to engage in crass, rude, and even downright raunchy humor. I love it. My background is studying the animated works of Ralph Bakshi, John K, and Joe Murray. My favorite artists include Brom and H.R. Geiger. Between the years of 2003 to 2007, the majority of work I did was saucy pin-ups.
Updated: Scholastic Art Award Art TheftUpdated at http://www.yuumei.deviantart.com/journal/31980235Updated: Scholastic Art Award Art Theft5 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just received an e-mail from Virginia McEnerney, the executive Director of Alliance for Young Artists & Writers. She stated that all of Kasey Bowman's awards have been revoked. She also said that they never gave her the $10,000 scholarship or any monetary prizes (unlike what everyone has been telling me so I'm rather confused on the matter; perhaps there was some sort of misunderstanding?). Her plagiarized piece has been removed from the site and the award will be given to someone else.
McEnerney said that Kasey Bowman "acknowledged that she has made a mistake". I have yet to receive any personal or public apology from Bowman herself so it's not all over yet but at least Scholastic has finally acknowledged the plagiarism issue after almost a month (I first contacted them on April 6th).
Thank you all for helping me with the issue. I am very grateful for all the support and information people have gathered about Sch
