Leaving deviantTrollartI will leave deviantART soon or late, actually I will stop to show my works here, and I will start to delete the majority of them.Leaving deviantTrollart1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I get more attention that I was waiting for from some deviantArt admins.
(I will try to explain the situation here in my bad english, so sorry for my language)
-That started many time ago, when I saw how the admins use the rules not the same for everybody. Then I made some works against that behavior from the admins and the result it was many of my works deleted from here. In many of them no reason to justify to delete that.
-After that I was talking with the help desk about this situation. I ask him the reason to delete every single work from my gallery, he didn't get me an answer. He told me they use to delete reported works many months later because they don't have time to see everything. Then I ask him : so, why you have time to delete my works the same day I upload it here? He didn't get me an answer. So I sent a protest about this guy to deviantArt. I
5 Unanswered QuestionsA few times a week I'll get questions in the form of “notes” on dA, emails, and private messages on Twitter, but I'm sorry to say that I don't normally find the time to answer them. But I've saved the most interesting ones in hopes I'd answer them during a slow work day. That day is today.5 Unanswered Questions1 year ago in Personal More Like This
(Most of these questions are paraphrased, or a mix of two different questions.)
1. You charge way too much for commissions (between $1000-$3000 for 11x17). How do you justify that?
I agree it's a lot of money. When I first started pricing commissions so high, it was for 2 reasons: I only had time for a handful a year, and having a commission list stressed me out. I priced them high so less people would ask. Commissions are nice, but I see it as a short term money game, whereas working on creator-owned properties is more lucrative over time when you think about prints, t shirts, licensing, etc.
The work I put into a 1k commission is the same I'd put into a Batman cover. And I sell B
THREE TIPS FOR DRAWING CARSYou know that green ellipse tool that you bought in art school? Do you know how to use it for something other than oval shapes? Do you know what those "cross-hair" marks are for? And do you know how to use it for technically correct perspective drawings?THREE TIPS FOR DRAWING CARS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
TOO many comics artists don't, and it's driving me crazy. So instead of starting a blog that starts showing examples and naming names, I figured it was better to make a quick tutorial. And this isn't just for cars but also for guns, fire hydrants, and millions of other machined objects found in comics.
If you go through this and you're still stuck, please don't write to me. I'm happy to show you at a convention to make it clearer, but within a blog this is the best I can do. Check out "Perspective for Comic Artists by David Chelsea" for more.
Cars are a whole lot easier to draw if you know how to properly use perspective and ellipses. The more familiar you are with the math, the more fun it is to draw cars. Once I figured out th
5 Career Killers“Whatever happened to that guy? The guy that drew that thing?5 Career Killers1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Comic careers are like any other career in entertainment: if you don't stay relevant and adapt to a trend, you'll eventually peak and then bottom out. But there are more things that can help end a career. Here's a list of 5 that I've been thinking about lately.
1. SOCIAL MEDIA TAKE-DOWN
The creator does something that somehow goes viral, turning his (or her) readers against him. Bad behavior at a convention, sexual harassment online, or a semi-racist Tweet made worse by bumbling attempts to correct it. Or maybe the creator gets blamed for something innocent: innocent comments taken out of context, or involvement in a controversial project that he had no say over. Whatever the case, “social media take-downs” can harm careers, leaving a permanent black mark on your career.
I imagine this one is the most common: no matter how hard you work—and no matter how much a

Comic-Con: Day 1San Diego Comic-Con Day 1 is winding down to such wee hours, some sticklers might call it “Technically A Few Moments Into Day 2.” But we live by the belief that new days don’t technically start until after you’ve fallen asleep, and all of the deviantART staff in attendance are still buzzing with energy after such an amazing first day on the convention floor.Comic-Con: Day 13 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

Of Voyages of Destiny: and Fish Fries
As kids, we could never understand why rich people would hang boring paintings of ships side-by-side with their portraits of beloved dead ancestors.
We didn’t understand this was not an admiration of the boat, not like the Porsche poster in my brother’s bedroom. This was about the valor of The Voyage, the courage to carry the family treasure across an ocean to begin a new life in a new land. A problem at sea meant a ho
A Tribute to Hans Ruedi GigerA Tribute to Hans Ruedi Giger1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.
In 1979, screenwriter Dan O’Bannon craft

Reflections on Being UnpluggedI love to look back on certain times of my life and reflect on what I have learned. Has the time spent been spent well, did I learn anything, did I advance, did I change for the better or did I remain stagnant?Reflections on Being Unplugged2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My hiatus from modeling, art, and social media gave me a unique perspective on life and on my reality as a model and artist. Sometimes you just need to unplug and spend some time with yourself to realize who you really are. We live in a society where we are bombarded by information about who we should be, but who are we really? In the end we should be comfortable with ourselves more than with anyone because we do spend the most time with our selves than we do with anyone else. We are our own long term life long companion and we should love ourselves and be at peace with ourselves.
In my hiatus I realized that I am very much in love with all things glamorous, sexy and feminine. I enjoy these things, I adore them in fact. I adore them because they really are a part o

Many of you have been in this community for a long time, but whether you’ve just joined or you’ve been a member since day one, this is your first impression of the new DeviantArt.
Change is not something that we take lightly, because it affects our collective identity. It was important for us to define who we are and what we’re made of at our core before we changed anything. We all have our own understanding of what that means, but the process of getting that core story down on paper took almost a year.
The result is “Bleed and Breed Art.” This is our center of gravity and our reason for getting out of bed i

Looking for some artists....I have lined up a two stories to be published, but I need some people to draw them...Looking for some artists....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First is a 5 page horror short, for an issue of Moose Crossing. It will be published by Evil Moose Comics. The story follows a teenage boy who has a job doing night security while the local carnival in town. The art for the story needs to be in color. The deadline for having the art wouldn't even be until May.
The second story is a Murder Mystery that takes place inside a wrestling promotion. This is for Jim Malin's Slam Bang anthology. Art for this wouldn't need to be done until July.
If you are interested in drawing either of these stories or would like to work on a project send me an email at email@example.com or just message me here on deviant art!
