I am having a bit of a Batman attack at the moment.
Also I came joint first place in :iconsevslover6195: 's contest I am so honored!
If you can spare a moment of your time please read this and see if you can help.
It's my partner's Grandfather's birthday today, so we're going to see him later
I'm doing some cheap commissions if anyone is interested:
I'm also going back to London on the 16th (YAH!) so I'll hopefully get lots more art done, though my interenet isn't great so I may take a while to get back to you. Hope you are all having a wonderful summer time!
Look at the amazing work!
The case of George ZimmermanCONTINUES FROM THE HOSTILE ELITESThe case of George Zimmerman2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have talked about how the elites and their mass media have an interest in radicalizing other ethnic and racial groups against white people in general, in order to create the tyrannic order they wish to establish.
To do this, they need to create a general atmosphere where whites are to be blamed by anything and everything wrong in the world, so that they can eventually justify genocide against whites as the "greater good for mankind". To create this atmosphere, the media distorts historical facts, or simply lie knowing that they can suppress the truth. But it does not always work.
The recent case of George Zimmerman is a typical example of this.
In the night of February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida, a Neighborhood's Watchman, Peruvian-American George Zimmerman was investigating a series of break-ins and followed a suspicious afri

Don't worry, Arthur. As I saw yesterday on my way home, Florence airport does have Toblerones.
Just an update to tell you all that I'm back in England, and I will make a start on those requests/commissions/gifts that I've been neglecting. Sorry for the wait! D:
And also to moan (again) about MapCrunch.
Because the road that I'd been following for just under two hours, turned out to be a dead end.
And, to make matters worse, '500 Miles' just came up on my shuffle.
I was getting so excited as well.

Digitigrade Leg and Stilt ConstructionIf your character has animal-like legs, such as a fawn, a werewolf, or a gargoyle, a draenai, tauren, etc, you have probably run across the problem of leg construction. These character types require digitigrade legs to look authentic and the whole point is to look authentic, right?Digitigrade Leg and Stilt Construction5 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those who are confused about what digitigrade means, here is the definition (Wiki):
A digitigrade is an animal that stands or walks on its digits, or toes. Digitigrades include walking birds (what many assume to be bird knees are actually ankles), cats, dogs, and most other mammals, but not humans, bears, and a few others (cf. plantigrade, unguligrade). They are generally quicker and move more quietly than other mammals.
So let's take a peek at how we can achieve the look without breaking our shins, hanging from the rafters in a desperate effort to stretch our Achilles tendon (No, really... DO NOT DO THAT), or undergoing some sort of mutagenic gene therapy.
Some methods are more comfortable and user frie
Personal Projects and Small Collaboration IdeasCommunity WeekPersonal Projects and Small Collaboration Ideas2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Art block and the lack ideas is a very common thing for an artist, there are many ideas and ways to help over come art block such as this fantastic article PE: Your Worst Enemy.
This article will be listing some ideas to start your own personal project and ideas for small collaborations.
What is a Personal Project?
A personal project is something undertaken by an individual to achieve a goal. A series of art pieces (visual or written) that are part of a theme or goal can tell a story. (Example: PE: Telling Stories with your Art). Equally a series of artworks or a theme can do the same.
Some common ideas are:

Commission Tipseveryone should be charging much more for their art. why? because if everyone sells for pennies, then you lower the price range for everybody. and art is worth so much more than pennies.Commission Tips2 years ago in Personal More Like This
hell, i’ve seen people charge $3,000-$7,000 for one full-page spread.
I know quite a few artists that make six figures working for studios.
This is a small guide on what I've learned from my time in college, and the general standards in the industry. And a small rant about the pricing around da, and why it's severely wrong.
PAYMENT: ALWAYS request funds first. Never wait until after. ensure that you get payed for your time and effort. I've seen so many artists get taken advantage of because they don't ask for payment until after they're done.
If the client isn't satisfied with the end product, you can always refund the money.
COST: If you don’t know what to charge, just think hourly. Minimum pay for a professional artist is $24-$30/hr w

I'm changing my name.That's right. I'm changing my DA name.I'm changing my name.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've thought long and hard and have decided to change it toooooo.......
That's right; i'm one of the few artists here on DA that seems content with my name. That; and I think changing a "brand" simply because you can, after you've spent time and energy building up an audience is f**king stupid.
I've been here for years. I've operated on the internet under "jollyjack" for longer. If I changed that now it would be monumentally confusing to people that follow my work, which, in turn, would have an effect on revenue.
There are a ton of artists here whose work I keenly follow, and I think they're kinda shooting themselves in the foot by doing this.
Kinda reminds be of those little label-making things everyone's been given on at least one Christmas as a kid: you unwrap it, you find out what it does and you spend the rest of the day punching out new tags for everything. Even if they'
The AvengersYou know that giddy, gleeful feeling that renders you incapable of doing little more than giggle like a lunatic?The Avengers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I pretty much had that from start to finish during the Avengers film (Which was released on Fair Blighty's shores as "Avengers Assemble" thanks to the past efforts of Steed and Peel).
There have only been a handful of movies that invoked that kind of response in me: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Abram's Star Trek, Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes and the first Iron Man film are those which immediately spring to mind.
Indeed; Avengers is THE best Marvel movie since Iron Man. Ace cast, brilliant story, hysterical script, a scene that will stab anyone that's followed the films leading up to this point right through the heart and a fair few more surprises.
Chief among them being; how the hell did the Hulk become such a f**king awesome character after so many naff films?
I'm gonna go see this one again!
Elect the Delusional?The good Mr Romney has been saying that "The world wants to see new American leadership".Elect the Delusional?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well....if by "world" he means "Pakistan".....
....and I think that's probably down to Obama giving the greenlight to the operation that saw US Special Forces conduct a cross-border raid into Pakistan which resulted in a very dead Bin Laden. They're still kinda cranky about that.
Posted for no reason other than that it's really, really funny.

This one made me crack up! I think only a couple decided upon none lion characters in this contest, and Rinja was one of them. This is very well drawn, I love the expressions, and it made me laugh my ass off when I saw it! Well done! Well deserved 1st Place.
This was also a mixture of great art skill and humor. I could definitely see Naanda reacting this way to a prospective lover XDD. And the style and drawing is just lovely
I thought this was a very well drawn and beautiful image. Not every entry had to be funny, and I love that Dwala gets some one-on-one love, rather than alw
Disney closes LucasArtsF**k you, Disney. F**k you.Disney closes LucasArts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are not angered by this news, you're obviously a very young gamer and probably (rightly) see LucasArts as nothing more than a mediocre-Star-Wars-title-discharging-sewer-pipe.
Disney bought LucasFilm because of the Star Wars cash-cow, but the number of classic IPs produced by LucasArts throughout the 90s makes the descision to close it rather than attempt to return to the studio to its glory days pretty staggering.
I actually see way more potential in LucasArts IPs than Star Wars.....but then, so would anyone with even the most stunted of creative minds.
Disney obviously still own all the properties, but the LucasArts brand is gone, and it's the end of an era, even if they start picking at the corpse for ideas to ruin.

SO HAVE YOU DEMANDED IT
SO SHALL IT BE
Better photos/order info coming VERY soon
