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
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 Inequality2 years 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

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.

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

All us poor americans who have been slaving under big, successful companies, working for rich people and getting less then minimum wage will now get REVENGE! He'll steal from the rich and give to the poor, everybody!! Because NOBODY WHO WAS EVER SUCCESSFUL DID IT BY THEMSELVES. If you came up with amazing new technology in your basement, working your butt off and realizing your dream to be a big business owner, YOU DON'T DESERVE IT!

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.
Things I won't draw:

So here's the story; today I'm watching through Marble Hornets again 'cause it's been a while. And I leave to get a drink or something, and I leave my door open by accident (I normally leave it closed because my cat likes to look at my mouse tank and I'm afraid she'll knock it down and they'll get hurt). So I leave, and I come back and my cat is sitting on my desk. Like total Slendercat pose; sitting up strait and just staring at me not moving. Freaks me out! She has a bell and everything but she can move around without it making it ring. And she keeps doing it too, just appearing out of nowhere and sitting there in the slendercat pose not moving or making noises.
And she's being all cuddly and cute with a high pitched meowing 'cause she wants me to give her a piece of dried fish. So I take out the little bag of dry fish and I take one out to give to her and I put it in front of her nose. And she just turn
