Back? Not quite...About my breakBack? Not quite...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Despite the increase in activity from me here on DA recently, I'm not entirely "back" in the normal sense of the word. I'm kinda just tip-toeing the waters to see if things have calmed a bit. I'm still trying to get through my issues, with mixed success, and a two month leave of absence isn't going to undo years of stress buildup and stubbornness. But I'm working on it, slowly but surely. You might see some new work here or there, but I don't think I'm ready yet to jump back into doing any of my longer narratives.
In fact, judging by my recent comic's reception, I probably am not ready for a full fledged return just yet...

Big Ben ResponseA succinct summary of the recent complaints:Big Ben Response3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"You somehow magically gained the ability to draw near-photorealistic buildings overnight and you choose to use this amazing newfound skill to draw a building in the background? Get serious dude."
This is a redrawing of Big Ben (using a different reference photo BTW) to show that I am actually capable of drawing architecture just fine. I only used the computer for the poster version because I wanted more control over it.
I'm gonna be leaving Big Ben the way it is in the poster. There's nothing to "own up to" about it other than saying "sorry I used such a recognizable image source of a popular and well known landmark as reference." I did not trace.
Curious that so many of the people crying "copyright infringement" over me using reference are also the same people who take my comics and make "parodies" of them by cutting, rearranging, and re-uploading th
Big BenSo in case you haven't heard yet, some kind YouTuber found the reference image I used to draw Big Ben for my London poster, warped and skewed it to match the angle, and made a rather catchy song proclaiming how I traced it while the image flickers back and fourth between the photo and my drawing as "proof."Big Ben3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know I have haters out there, and some of them seem to have unhealthy obsessions with finding fault in everything I do, but this is taking it pretty far, don't you think? Even if it were traced, Big Ben is such an iconic image that you'd be hard pressed to find a different angle to work with, especially since it's box-shaped and all sides look the same.
I should probably point out that if you see pixelation in the tower, it's because the whole image has been reduced and saved at only 60% normal JPEG compression. It's a trick used to keep the image good enough to be seen but bad enough to be printed, thus encouraging sales on the larger non pixelated poster.

MCM London ExpoIf you haven't seen anything from me in a while, it's because I'm in London and don't have ready access to the interwebs.MCM London Expo3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tomorrow is the MCM London Expo. I'll be located at table AB8 in the dealers room NOT in artist alley. So don't look for me in the artist alley because I won't be there! Lol.
Humon and Vitaly have been Trolling each other, which you've probably seen a bit of if you watch either of them. Silly guys...
The convention starts tomorrow and goes through the weekend! Hope to see you there!
PS: I was trying to pick a winner to the contest before I left but ran out of time. Now I won't be able to pick a winner till I get back from London, so sorry about that.
EDIT: I've been informed that we do indeed have an artist alley table... So... I haven't got the foggiest idea where I will be located now. Best to just look all over then! Sorry..
Posters, Conventions, CD, and Dr.And I'm back! Well... I guess "technically" I wasn't really gone. But I have been taking a bit of a break from the internet aside from posting updates. It was quite refreshing and hopefully it's been long enough to recharge my batteries because I have a LOT to do!Posters, Conventions, CD, and Dr.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Conventions are creeping up on me. In about a month's time I'm going to be in London and that's got me starting to freak out. I've gotta get enough stock pooled together, find out how to ship it to London without it costing an arm and a leg, and work out my itinerary. I'll also be at the MCBA Spring Con the week before in Minneapolis/St.Paul and then immediately after the London con I'll be in Iowa for QC-Anime Zing! Gyaah!
For the London convention all of us Fresh Epics artists are writing stories for an anthology book. We're all going to be featured in it. Me, Humon, Stupid Fox, Romantically Apocalyptic, Boggart, Acero Tiburon, etc. I'm proud to say I've finally gotten my pages in! Yay!

Contest CLOSED!Wow! I am quite honestly impressed! I was not expecting so many entries, especially with only a week to prepare for it! You've all done a fantastic job! It's going to be very hard to pick out the winner in this batch. 44 submissions in 7 days. That's pretty impressive everyone, and you all did a great job!Contest CLOSED!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My plan now is to spend the next couple days looking over all your entries and making up my mind. Before I leave for London I will notify the winner and make a post about it. When I get to London I'll have the posters and books prepared and shipped to the winner.
In the meantime, I suggest taking a peek at all the wonderful artwork you guys did!

For marioluevanos and I It was one of those interesting ideas that once let loose to run free
in our heads was impossible to force back into the “notions for another time” box. Deadlined chapters
and artworks to open mystic gates to safeguard the coming of the New Year 2012! One more way to show
the world what the talents and imaginations of our worldwide community of deviants are capable of when
challenged with only minimal time and direction! But of course the actual execution of this creative
experiment would require far

As long as he is out of the group, he will be missed greatly by all of us maggots.
