Helpfull Selling Mindset (another plz rd)I got a note this morning from someone asking for my assistance and advice about sales. They are having a reselling issue and were inquiring about TOS/contracts. But from what they wrote I could tell that information wouldn't help them with the core issue. I have left out their initial note and kept them anonymous but I thought some of you might get something from my reply regardless.Helpfull Selling Mindset (another plz rd)1 month ago in Personal More Like This
It is really lovely to hear that you have had such a wonderful experience selling up till now! Do not let this recent change discourage you. This is not a personal situation/attack that you are going through so do not let it impact you on a personal and emotional level. I know it is painful. I have had it happen and it really does hurt. It is very easy to flip a switch your mind and say "never again" after it happens. It is easy to respond to it by throwing rules and regulations at your work or respond by making co

no bad decisions when it involves a street sweeper3am and i am feeling a little bummed, so i took a hike for coffee. coffee run turned into run-away-from-skunks run and at the store i met this scraggly old, dirty man with long gray hair and long scraggly beard, dressed in the dirtiest overalls i've ever seen and had a star tattooed on his face.no bad decisions when it involves a street sweeper3 years ago in Personal More Like This
i know you're not suppose to talk to strangers but how could i pass up the offer i got of getting a ride in a goddamn street sweeper?
queue us talking about how much we absolutely hate people and how awesome his job is because he doesn't have to deal with them. i almost went to work with him but ftt thats where i drew the line. though "serial street sweeper killer" would make a pretty catchy headline.
what lesson did you just learn?
certainly not anything about going up to unidentified wild animals in the dark, but talk to strangers, kids. you may get your very own chance at riding in a street sweeper.

my legs being stroked, kissing, generic stuff like that.

No one, I just wish I was a better version of myself.

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

stir-fried vegetables (red onions, cabbage, peppers, carrot, bean sprouts) with some herbs

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 colors11 months 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

Photoshop is a great program, but despite it's many features it's a bit pricy at $999. I created this list for people with smaller wallets and certain art needs.
The programs are listed according to what type of art they are best suited for.
Don't know what program will be best for you? Most of the paid programs have trial versions available, download them and see what you like best.

A Thought on InequalityWe've been talking a lot about inequality in my college classes; so I thought I'd share my view on the matter.A Thought on Inequality9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Merriam-Webster states inequality as being “an unfair situation in which some people have more rights or better opportunities than other people.” Now, this is a great definition. However, the general public does not view inequality in this manner. For the majority of people, “inequality” means “a situation where everybody does not have an identical outcome,” the essential difference being the distinctness between “the right to pursue happiness” and “the right to be happy.” It is not your right to exist in a state of happiness, but rather to be free to choose to follow a path that you believe will make you so. To go along with this, it is also not your right to be as happy as your neighbor, but rather to be as happy as you work to be. As rel
Twenty YearsTime is weird.

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.

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.
