New Contest!!! ^_^Hey there LCxW fans! ^^ I've decided to start an annual art event and I need your help. So every good pro wrestling promotion has at least one big show a year, their Wrestlemania as it were. With that being the case I decided I should have a Wrestlemania-like show as well from my fictional promotion, Lesbian Cl*max Wrestling (LCxW). What do I have planned? Well I want to do a week long event where each day I post a new match here on DA and PIXIV. By match I mean a series of images that highlight the best parts of the match with descriptions to fill in the blanks; kinda like what I did with Thunder Phoenix vs. Case Keidan. (Which should be re-released soon btw ^_~). Each match will be in black and white with at least one color image of the best picture. I know that I don't have a well established roster yet, but I will do what I can to push some kind of main story. It's the first year so the characters will have to really sell themselves lNew Contest!!! ^_^2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Odd Comments on my contestOkay, so several comments I got implied that the prizes actually scared people away. I'm not sure I've ever heard of this before. I knew the idea of the focus being around my stories would slow interest, but never expected anyone saying something along the lines of "the prizes are so cool that I know I can't win." Anyway, I am going to restart the contests from the beginning on June 15th (Japanese time). In any case, I'll be extending the deadlines by a month for these contests, but I think I'll work on the prizes a little bit as well.Odd Comments on my contest3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For one thing, I think I'll have some reward stamps made up for the winners and I'll probably make the prizes either deviant art or something equivalent as an option.

New Contest: What it's LikeContest themeNew Contest: What it's Like2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hey, mental-health members!! Are you ready for a new contest? (Say yes or nod your head vigorously!!)
The theme of this contest is: What it's Like.
In other words, you should show or describe what it's like to live with a mental illness or to love or care for someone with mental illness. You can do this, for example, by personifying or anthropomorphizing mental illness or by depicting its impact. But, you don't have to do it that way. We want to know what this experience is like for you. How would you describe or represent it?
The parameters of this contest are as follows:
The contest begins on January 27th and ends on March 9th (6 weeks).You can use any kind of medium you choose (or feel free to use mixed media). That means writing is just as acceptable as drawing. For simplicity, there will only be one category this time, rather than one for literature and one for visual art.For
Making Sense of Modern Art: Joel SwansonWhen an art museum features a piece titled "Lady Gaga's Twitter Feed Translated into Morse Code", you really have to see for yourself. So it was that I headed down to the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) in Denver today, to see an exhibit of Joel Swanson's work.Making Sense of Modern Art: Joel Swanson1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
The afforementioned work was pretty much as its title indicated: a small LED set atop a white box, incessantly blinking, displaying the pop singer's twitter feed in visual dots and dashes. Per the museum program, "Transforming the ones and zeroes of contemporary technology into the dots and dashes of Morse code brings the two languages together and indicates how similar the two are..." Clever? Sort of. Interesting? Mmmm...maybe, as a starting point to discussing the history of language and communication. Art? I don't think so.
The rest of the exhibit contained further exploration of "language in its literal and physical forms". Examples:

Puzzle Pieces (for MD)It is my philosophy that we are all composed (metaphorically) of puzzle pieces. The edges of our spiritual/emotional being lined with places where we connect to other people. Only certain people posses the matching piece to really connect with us. Some people do not fit with us anywhere. And at times we believe someone should fit, and can spend huge amounts of time, some people spend the rest of their lives, trying to force them to match with us, or we try to force ourselves to match with them. Either is impossible, you can force two puzzle pieces together, but they either match or they don't. When you find someone whose pieces match yours, you will always be connected to them, even if it is not in the way you expect. This is also what most people refer to as "having chemistry". You may be a good team but not great friends, best friends but never lovers, sometimes tormented by trying to figure out why you have this connection, especially if only one person is listening to it.Puzzle Pieces (for MD)5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Creators Rights at ConventionsConventions have become big business in the last few years. More shows keep popping up, attendance keeps rising, and there's more money than ever being passed around as comics continue to merge with pop culture/big media/corporate sponsorships into what I've been calling Supershows.Creators Rights at Conventions2 months ago in Personal More Like This
For the most part, I think this is a great thing for the creators and our industry. While a few might miff at the thought of comics being intruded upon by other industries, it means more chances for starving artists to make money, more money for commissions and prints, and chances to travel to exotic locations that were never previously on our agenda.
More and more frequently, creators are being lured to shows all over the world with travel costs (at least partially) comped. When they arrive, they'll be met by capable handlers, lines of cheering fans, and fancy parties while they're given the brief whiff of stardom that's usually reserved for Mick Jagger.
But not always.

5 Art Selling TipsWhile I used to see "art sales" simply as bonus money coming in on the side, over the past few years it's become enough of an asset that it justifies an art dealer, record keeping, insurance, and taxes at the end of each year. It's currently 25% of my total income, and that has a lot of impact over my work. And just like storytelling, design and page flow--abstract principles that keep my career afloat daily--art sales also deserve to be studied, theorized, and understood.5 Art Selling Tips2 years ago in Personal More Like This
These are guidelines, not rules. And while most of them usually work for me, they might not all work for you, so keep in mind that my market might be different than yours. Because not only do we not draw the same, we probably have different sorts of buyers.
1. Don't stay on a book for too long
I find that doing mini series of 4-12 issues is optimal for selling art. If you spend a year doing one-shots or 2-3 issue minis, you'll be hard for buyers to keep track of because it's too infrequent. And it's hard to make an i

The Sin vs. Sinner ParadoxAs Christians we are supposed to be Christ like and yet one area we continually fall short of is judgement of sinners for their sin. Many of us act like Pharisees, Sadducees, Wouldn'tsees and Couldn'tsees when it pertains to sinners and their sins. Each of these groups ends up in one of 2 ditches. In order to keep a right viewpoint it becomes necessary for us to hold 2 diametrically opposing emotions and continue to function as God intended.The Sin vs. Sinner Paradox3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The RIGHT Ditch. The Pharisees and Sadusees were so bound by the law that they had no mercy when dealing with sinners. Either you lived up to their perceived level of righteousness or you were outcast. They invented new rules for believers to live under. Need I remind you that Eve's first sin was not eating of the apple but putting words into God's mouth? Thus sayeth the Lord should be reserved for things the Lord actually said. As such these "law only" people would judge based on the sins they saw and missed the kingd

Inspiration: I mainly draw humans and landscapes. I find people in magazines, or characters from literature, or do an occasional piece of fanart. There seems to be a never-ending supply. I’ve probably got dozens of subjects in my mental queue, waiting to be drawn. As far as landscapes, well, I live in the mountains of Colorado, so there’s plenty of inspiration right out my front door. The trick is trying to capture the beauty and render it in a small, flat, primarily black and white container. I’m very much in the initial stages of learning to ma
