I'm in no position to teach anybody and suck at explaining things anyway, so it's probably better to point you at some other sources.

Copic Markers and Pony colorsI get a LOT of questions regarding what colors I use where when it comes to the ponies, and I keep saying I'm gonna make a little guide. Well, let's give it a shot.Copic Markers and Pony colors2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For the majority of my covers, I use Copic markers to color. Copics are light-fast, alcohol markers... not unlike a classic school marker, but higher quality. I prefer Copic over other brands primarily for a few reasons: Variable tips (markers, fine, brush, etc), better blending, and they can be refilled! This is the BIG selling point to me... this means you can buy the marker once, and continue to refill. It also means you can custom blend colors should you desire. Copics also guarantee that if you buy Y00 yellow, and then buy another down the line, the colors will match. I've bought the same marker color from other brands and had them not match. I will use other brands here and there for very specific colors or effects, but Copic is 99% of my marker work.
So... when I do a cover or whatever, I do basic ink lines first wit
Baby wolves were born!!!Hi!Baby wolves were born!!!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is one year old journal, but I have great news - I just read that in local ZOO, baby arctic wolves were born again!
They still stay in a burrow, but as soon as they get older and leave the den, I will do my best to bring you some photos
Photos in this journal were taken in 2011
Here come the first photos of baby arctic wolves, who were born in ZOO Brno this year
The quality is very bad, they were some 20-30 metres from me, but I think you can still enjoy their cuteness

Custom Breaking Bad FiguresCustom Breaking Bad Figures3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Last year I sculpted up a few portraits of Bryan Cranston as Walter White from my favorite show "Breaking Bad". I was finally able to put the finishing touches on 3 custom figures of Walt, all of which were given to the creators of the show this past week.
It's been a helluva lot of fun, and a tremendous thrill to get to meet the artists behind this terrific show that has been so inspiring to me. Kinder people you will not meet!
So here's a look at the finished custom figures. These were pieced together from various sources, using Hot Toys bodies, and clothes I found on ebay and then altered. The heads were all painted by some talented friends of mine, and they really brought Walt to life. It's been a lot of work to try and piece these together in my free time, but I really enjoyed doing it.
ps- A random winner was chosen from my last giveaway. I'll do another giveaway in the coming months, I'm sure. thanks!
Twenty YearsTime is weird. It feels like forever ago that I came to Bristol, like yesterday that I met Alexx, like last week that I started my second year, and like a year since I finished my second year film. All of that is completely in the wrong order. What the hell, brain?Twenty Years1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, regardless of how fucky the way we experience of time is, the reality is that I'm now 20! Some of you noticed - thanks to all the people who left birthday messages! Seriously, there's like 40 of them, it's crazy! I never really thought I'd get this far and already have someone call me their "idol", like that really kinda nuts! I'm honoured in any case, but still! It's been great fun this past year putting out comics and seeing so many people really loving them, and I'm hoping I can keep putting my comics in front of people that'll love them.
They may have to take a back seat, however, as I do really have to knuckle down and get on with stuff that I can use as portfolio fodder to get myself employed once I gr

Comics are hand-drawn on 8.5" x 11" paper.
b/w (pencil & ink) page: $30
color (traditional or digital) page: $60
Please keep the approximate panel count down to six per page. And if you supply dialogue, keep in mind that I may change it slightly to fit the artwork. Also, keep it simple as far as characters go. 2-3 characters works best for this.
2. Thrandrall (more of a series of pin-ups, but I'm putting it here in terms of workload)
Pin-ups are hand-drawn on 11" x 14" watercolor paper, and I'll more than likely do watercolors for all pin-ups.
b/w (pencil & ink): $30
color (traditional or digital): $50
Pin-ups are single character. If there's a duo or something you absolutely need, we'll work something out rate-wise.

-$4 for a character sketch
-$8 for a digitally inked character
-$12 for a digitally inked character with flat colour
-$16 for a digitally inked, coloured, and shaded character
Any extra characters in the picture will cost $4 per additional character.
If you would like a coloured background for a picture with flat colour or shaded colour it will cost an additional $2, otherwise it will just have a transparent background.
I'm fine with drawing just about any character, although there are a couple of things that I won't draw.

Tip for Today: When to give up?Never give up just because you don't think you're good enough. We've all had our doubts in life. Successful people do not give up easily. We must prepare and prepare again, try your very hardest and then about 50% more that you didn't know you had consistently, then keep going twice as long as you ever thought you would or could. Look for more knowledge and try again.Tip for Today: When to give up?4 years ago in Personal More Like This

In a different country, namely outside of Europe with enough money to explore it properly. (Lets say Japan, South Korea, Canada)

Hi everyone! I'm Jade, better known around DeviantArt as Aeirmid. I chose my username because Aermid (or Airmid) is an Irish goddess of health and healing, and I wanted to pay tribute to her because I have dedicated my life to promoting mental and physical health in others. In fact, I'm just finishing up a PhD program in public health. In March, I will celebrate 10 amazing years on DeviantArt. Although I started my journey as a photographer, I quickly became enthralled with photomanipulation and worked hard to develop some skills. I chose my original name on DA, SanguineVamp, because I loved all sorts of dark and Gothic work. I still do. Still, I had a hard time creating dark art because my attempts at blood and gore always somehow magically evolved
