PRE ORDERS!Wow, a lot of news for you guys all in one week! Yesterday I informed you all that apps for the iphone/ipad/ipod/android will be coming soon, and also asked for help on a new poster. Today it's about pre-orders for posters and the anthology!PRE ORDERS!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I mentioned this before, but all of us Fresh Epics artists got together and made a comic along a theme. So all of us, Humon, Stupid Fox, Romantically Apocalyptic, Acero Tiburon, and Boggart are all in the same book!
You can find more information here in my store http://syacartoonist.com/shop/anthology-book1 where you can also view sample pages. The book is going for $16.25 and should be ready around the beginning of May (I don't have an exact date yet, sorry).
We'll have the anthology for sale at the MCM Expo as well, so if you wanted to get one in person instead of ordering online, you'll be able to (and also will be able to get it signed by all of us!).
As many of you might remember, I've been working

Selkie: The Story. (no spoilers)Well I keep finding myself explaining various plot points or origins every time I post a new selkie picture and corresponding vague blurb, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a central place where you can read up on the story, if you like. The idea is that I'll update the story here when I upload a new illustration, and fill in major plot points which aren't getting covered in the picture, so check back if you're interested.Selkie: The Story. (no spoilers)5 years ago in Personal More Like This
BEFORE I START, I will answer once and for all this question: "Is this from Ondine/Secret of Roan Inish?" Not really, this story is as similar to either of those as they are to each other: they are all from the same mythology, but this series is about characters who do not exist in another selkie retelling. Here is some reading on basic selkie mythology: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selkie

Fan Fused Dragon Contest! LAST CALL!!!Fan Fused Dragon Contest! LAST CALL!!!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Get your entries in by 6:30 P.M. PST TODAY. So I can host a poll on who should win.
Yep~ Start those pencils! It is time to draw!
Theme: Fan Fused Yugioh Dragons! With a twist! (The twist is that the winner of the contest will become the group's mascot!)
It is a fusion of at least 2 official Yugioh dragons (more than 2 is ok)
The dragons fused can come from any of the Yugioh series (Season 0 to Zexal) (like Blue Eyes White fused with No. 17 Revice Dragon) and can be from the same series (ex. Stardust with Black Rose).
In the devotion or the artist comments tell us which Yugioh dragons you fused to make the "Mascot".
All media is aloud. Full body shots or Ref. sheets are highly wanted but if you can only write, then describe in detail about the "Mascot" so that one of the admins can draw it.
Try to keep it PG. (This is a mascot not a stripper)
Fallows DA's rules.

to everyone who is still reading this,
if you want to help making things better, please go here http://dan14lev.deviantart.com/journal/Site-Updates-Week-2-of-2012-280120333 and suggest them to create a third front page option so that we'd have Newest, Exposure (current FP) and Popular (the old FP ) :'D
if we suggest it in many, they might listen to us!
I already did and others did the same!
okay, it's time somebody does something about this.
So I hope I'm not the only one who's being REALLY annoyed by this new front page system or glitch that's been there for almost a month now, and DA did absolutely nothing to fix or let us know they're fixing it or inform us in case it's a new system?!
for me it's not okay, before the pictures getting there at least were popular, they were there because they were chosen by people, because we liked them, because for the most part they were good and worth looking at!
how many of the good artists on DA did you see up there lately, not
A Tribute to Hans Ruedi GigerA Tribute to Hans Ruedi Giger2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.
In 1979, screenwriter Dan O’Bannon craft
RecognitionIt would appear to many that I am very "egotistic"Recognition3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Apparently to many I come off as an artist who is very "up his own arse" Every thing I produce is just me showing the world that I feel that I am above everyone else.
I just for once, want recognition for what I do, not "well your up your arse aren't you" or "this and this sucks" (some of this from my own parents) I produce art, music, writing, games and what I get back is always the same. I don't know where it went wrong but now I kinda don't want to show anything anymore. My recognition for anything is as high as 1 or 2 strangers looking at it with no impact.
I don't feel like working on anything anymore because I feel like it'll be pushed aside again (this includes college work)
"The music I make sounds all the same"
Ha, that's pretty funny. No it's me as an ARTIST making the same kind of music because it's my musical style. I produce for my video games and many times I do different versions of the same track to create a feel to
From Darksiders Dungeon: Vigil Games NOT Sold offUPDATE: Earlier reports at IGN had suggested that Take-Two Studios had acquired Vigil Games. However according to Kotaku, who posted a transcript of the letter from THQ president Jason Rubin, Vigil Games has in fact NOT been sold. Stay tuned for more information as it develops.From Darksiders Dungeon: Vigil Games NOT Sold off3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The demise of THQ is here with many of its assets and studios being sold off. Among the bidders, Koch Media, Take-Two, Ubisoft, and SEGA each got a piece of the pie. Most notably concerning Darksiders, Vigil Games has reportedly been purchased by Take-Two Studios. While the average gamer might not know much about Take-Two, they are the parent company of 2k Games and Rockstar Games, makers of games such as Grand Theft Auto, Bioshock, Civilization, Red Dead, Max Payne, and several notable sports games.
During the bankruptcy reveal of THQ, it was reported that Vigil Games was working on a title Crawler. It’s unclear whether this was a new game, or just a codename for a potential Darksiders III. In any case, i

Editorial | Khader Adnan: His dignity. Our shame.
This week, Khader Adnan entered his third month of a hunger strike
against his unlawful detention and mistreatment at the hands of the Israeli military.
The deafening silence by world leaders and media at his plight shames us all.

Somewhere in the Middle East, a 33-year old man is today entering the 60th day of a hunger strike.
He is currently lying – as he has done for weeks – with one hand, and one leg,
shackled to his hospital bed. By the time you read this, he could be dead.
Of course, had he been an Iranian opposition journalist

I'm beginning to get the ball rolling with a Flash platformer I am making and was wondering if anyone would like to submit character designs. The game is in its early stages but I have created the player, velocity based movement, moving platforms and objects, dynamic terrain and obstacles (moving and animated terrain), camera scrolling and I'm starting work on adding the player's design to the mix. So if you have a design send me a link to it. Also any ideas for the game are welcome.
