Harajuku style Lolita Ibuki, really?Do you guys seriously want her Lolita-ed out or do you want her in her tank top with short shorts?
I reworded it a bit, cause i just meant this type of clothing, it might not be necesasarily gothic, but predominately black and white which from what i understand is called gothic lolita, here's an example: http://images.google.ca/images?hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-ca:IE-SearchBox&rlz=1I7SUNA&resnum=0&q=gothic%20lolita%20harajuku&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi
It would be super challenging. I know there are a lot of people who want the tank and shorts, so don't worry i will figure something out so people are happy!
Its so close, I will check back again tomorrow in the morning when i get to work, so if you want yours to win, then get your friends and gang up on the poll!
Question about world creating:NicaRox2006 asks:Question about world creating:11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hello Mr. Omar, I've been reading your 5c comic and have been a huge fan. I've got a few questions:
How did you build the world? The names of the places, the maps, the social classes, technology etc. It's so very genius! I personally am trying to make my own story/comic, and seeing your comic just inspires me tremendously.
Well this is a tricky question in a way, but I will try to answer it briefly:
Every action should have purpose.
With this thought in mind I created the world for 5th Capsule. I intended it to be a very similar place to our world so that I could play off the familiar things the people already knew. I did this so that people would focus on the characters and not the events of two worlds colliding or anything bigger than that. There are special effects in movies and a similar type thing in illustrated novels.
If I make a world that is totally
A New LevelAbout 14 years ago I started my comic career with Dreamwave. After that I moved onto Nelvana for a while and worked on two shows. During that I started with UDON where I still am. In 2011 I started to teach at Seneca College in Toronto.A New Level2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years you've heard me belly ache about my mixed feelings about what I work on and what type of rhetorical acrobatics I do to justifiy it to myself. For the most part it's to pay the bills and that it's just what I do until something else comes along. I never claim that anything I work on is representory of my moral beliefs or religion for that matter nor do I try to excuse myself under the guise of some self serving excuse, it just simply is my situation.
I'm happy for all the work I have and am doing and I do it as well as I possibly can. I am the sole provider for my family and I thank God for all the work that i do have and my thanks and appreciation manifests itself in my effort to try and do the best I can.

But, it's not without good reason! I am using the next month to get as many pages done as possible of 5th Capsule. Thats right, a total reboot from what ever you saw in Vent. Some of the older characters might find their way in, but you'll just have to wait,
As it is right now I'm on page 28, and I am hoping to get 75 - 90 pages of story done first. I'm considering putting it alltogether in one book with about 15 - 20 full colour images in the back as well as maps and all sorts of geeky stuff.
You have no idea how much i have been trying to refine and learn from my mistakes over the last year. I have more than myself editing it, and while it will never be perfect, the lack of extreme deadline allows for us to look at it carefully.
I might do a kickstarter, but first I want to have the book done completely. All I would look for is print cost. I'm not going to commit to any det

I've heard you petitions and comments and you guys have a point. I never considered FB to be an art site, more that i liked how I could post impromptu pics that i take on a regular basis. I've been so busy as of late with my work that i have nothing really i can show you except scribbles and the like. For this reason i thought it would be more entertaining if you saw more of my daily life pics.
But now it seems that you are all patient enough to wait for me to post stuff and for that i thank you! I will Make an effort to post more stuff here so you guys can see, I don't want to seclude myself more!

Happy New YearLet's all start the year off with some stuff I wish I had growing up:Happy New Year1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So I read an article last night on people who are mentally strong and the DO NOTS of being that person.
I took those notes, and listed them, including how I learned to overcome these obstacles. It's a long read, sorry, but I figured this year it's time to open up and share that knowledge that I was once taught by someone I consider my mentor, business partner and bestfriend, Stephan.
1. Don't waste time feeling sorry for yourself - I used to feel this way as a kid. I was a child of divorce, and used it as a crutch when I was younger. I hate a (mentally) abusive step-mom who would constantly take me down. I began to feel that maybe it was true, and I wasn't going to be the person I wanted to be.
You can't think that way. No one likes or enjoys a Debbie Downer. Someone who is constantly on the negative or pining for sympathy. I began to overcome these complications with art or writing. Using tha

Once things calm down in October i will be posting new things and subject matter you have never seen before with a new company I am involved with.

A whole comic for free, and Girl 8?23 pages of 5C for free!A whole comic for free, and Girl 8?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well, at least as far as NA standards go, 22-24 pages is a full floppy comic book. I gave you a free glimpse at 5C, and I have another 20 or so pages for you as well!
For a BW comic, i'm happy that it is getting any attention at all. I know that i'm more known for SF stuff, but this is the type of story i've always wanted to write and illustrate. I'll say that the next pages are a bit more quick with less informational content and more character drama. Increasingly, the characters own stories start to diverge a bit.
It should be said though that 5C was not meant to be a web comic, it's mean to be read in one shot, at least the first story arc so that you can see the flow of it better. I think if you go back and read it from the beginning to page 23 that i posted today you will get a much different feel than when you were waiting for it every 2 days or so.
As for me, right now i'm cranking away

A small talk about pricing your artYou're creating art. You have the passion, you have the skills. Why not make some money out of it then? It's a good idea, right? A lot of people live from creating art, and even more earn some money on the side by taking commissions. You should give it a shot!A small talk about pricing your art1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So... How much money is your art worth?
It's a hard question to answer for those who are just starting their adventure with selling and creating art for money. Is its worth equal to the price of the materials you used? Is it equal to the value of the time you've spent on creating it? What about the emotional value you put into it? Should your education influence your prices?
No matter if art is your job, hobby or a pastime, you should never undervalue it. In this article I will try to give some tips as to how assess the value of your artwork and touch the problem of too low prices.
We're in it for the money.
Let's be honest - if you're reading this then you probably want

Secondly, i want to thank all of you for your support of 5th Capsule and my more recent stuff I've been posting. I wish there was a thumbs up option on the comments to show you i have read what you said.
dA is weird now since many things that used to catch 20k hits right off the bat now, hardly hit 10. I think they have jigged up the formula a bit.
I have to get back to work, but I most likely will be opening up for commissions this spring with only a few slots. I will try to come up with some new options so that there are more entry level options and hi pro options alike. All traditional , no digital.
I hope you guys drive safe and have fun, I will keep on posting 5th Capsule. We're getting closer to the end of the first half of the first story arc, after which, if it doesn;t have support and I don't have time because of work, might stop! But we will see!

The pages should be finished sometime in January next year. I'll also be wrapping up my work on Momo as well by that point it looks like. If all goes well, and I can get some support I will have a plan in place by then to continue.
I'm juggling a lot right now, but if there's love for 5C , then I will do my best to make it happen!

“Sometimes we lay aside our own troubles when we wipe away another's tears.”
Is no longer alone
his life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all headed for the same fate: dust.

I've been feeling a lot braver these days when it comes to talking to strangers so I said to the Mom "You have a pretty family." she laughed and said "You think so??" I recognized some of the words they had been saying so I asked if they were Korean she nodded and they seamed a impressed I knew some of the words. We chatted a bit and I told them. I wanted to learn the language so I had been watching some Drama's and I liked them. They were so nice. When they came back from looking at the apartment they said bye. I really hope they move
