What program do you use?
Adobe Photoshop CS5
Corel Painter 11
What kind of tablet do you use?
Wacom Intuos 4
Where did you learn to draw?
I was using cheat codes from the very start - both my parents are artists + my mum was organizing weekend drawing courses in our very house. You can pretty much say I spent my whole childhood in an art school.
When I was in high school I was attending course preparing for exams into the faculty of architecture. This is the course: www.labirynt.pl
During the first and second year at the university we had some drawing/painting/sculpting lessons but they kinda sucked. Besides they were worth only 1/10th of the ECTS points you could get from pretty much any other subject so nobody gave a shit.
Will you make any tutorials?
Probably not. I don't feel competent enough.

1. Do you like to poop?
I do like pooping especially before some big event because I feel as though when I release my waste products I am releasing the anxiety and pressure within me and I don't have to worry about causing an unwanted eruption during the actual big event.
2. Pee or Poop?
I like to pee because it makes me feel like a normal person when I'm invited to go to the bathroom with my female friends.
3. Favorite pooping position?
The one when you do the criss cross apple sauce hands on your knees and doing jumping jacks and then flying like a bird and pooping on the heads of everybody you hate and then breaking out into a disney song, singing out all my inner happiness and twirling my way home doing the cotton eye joe and releasing the last pellet.
4. Diarrhea or Constipation?
Diarrhea because it all just comes out pretty easi

Anyone else out there playing this? Very neat game. Very.. mixed reviews about it across the nets, but hey, I'm having fun either way.
It's an open world.. actiony.. RPG-y.. exploration.. concoction. I'm not sure how else to put it. It's a pretty wild blend of all sorts of elements I've seen in games like Monster Hunter, Skyrim, Dark Souls and even Shadow of the Colossus. Aaaand I love all those games.
I don't mind telling you, I'm getting myself murdered left and right, and I seem to have lost my direction very.. very early on in the game. Shortly after a dragon plucked out my heart and ate it, I found myself protecting a cow on the way to a grand capital city i

FAQFAQ2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I get a lot of mails and comments that asks similar things, I have tried to put together a FAQ, since I am having a hard time replying to every one of them individually.
One thing you must understand though, is that art is different for everyone, so some of the things you will have to learn and discover for yourself. Unfortunately I do not have all the answers for you.
What's your job?
I am a freelance comic artist. Clients ask of me to draw: Cover art (CD/Film/Books), writing/pencilling/inking/colouring of comics and manga, game/film concept art, storyboards, character design, workshops, logo designs, mascot designs, TV host (comic/manga/japan/game related). I do both private and commercial commissions since about 2006. You can contact me for work at Mikikoponczeck@gmail.com or Mikiko_ponczeck@yahoo.de
How long have you been drawing?
Since childhood, I simply never stopped. I started d

FML. The Super Mario Galaxy StoryYou guys like story yeah? Let uncle Ry tell you a story, there's a lesson to learn here kids. Pay attention. I wanna talk about this now because last week was my birthday and it reminded me of this story, its related to a birthday gift. The gift was Super Mario Galaxy for the Wii. This story happened a few years ago.FML. The Super Mario Galaxy Story2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a picture of me playing the Nintendo Wii, I love my Wii. Had lots of great times on it playing games like Smash Brothers and Mario Kart and Twilight Princess, and a game I really loved called Super Mario Galaxy. The story takes place around 2009? A couple of years after the Wii came out. So one day a friend of mine Matt messaged me telling me he got a Wii, I thought great, about time he got a Wii. So I congratulated him, then he asked the question. :I He asked whether he can borrow some games and I was like 'HMMMMMMMM SHIT'. Well Matt is a nice guy, pretty honest and pretty generous. I usually am pretty generous too but when it comes to games, I hate lending it out
Recognize Your VulnerabilityUnderstanding the BibleRecognize Your Vulnerability2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recognize Your Vulnerability
1 Corinthians 10:12-13
Some Christians see a fellow believer fall into sin but fail to acknowledge that they, too, could stumble. That's dangerous. Satan has them right where he wants them: deceived by a false sense of confidence. Three enemies are constantly at work trying to bring us down: the Devil, his world system, and our own treacherous flesh.
Even though believers have a righteous standing before God, we must each, like Paul, acknowledge an internal problem: "sin which dwells in me" (Rom. 7:20). Satan takes full advantage of this weakness, luring us with fleshly and worldly temptations.

GOOD DAY EVERYBODY!
Today I encountered a note, this note is not the one you casually receive(like commission notes, personal messages, ETC.). But this was sent to me 3 times this week already. And I've seen it was also passed around to other deviants.
The so called note contained this message:
"Hey! I'm messaging you to ask for your permission to feature one of your works in AllArt4Ever's upcoming monthly list of featured atrists (i.e. artists to look for). Awaiting your reply.
Also, participate in our contest to win a 12 month PM by installing the app and posting a screenshot. :-D
Its a result of a collaborative effort of our group's moderators.
Megan Truff (MeganTruff)"
So if you guys received any of this "NOTE" please do not believe it.
I've checked out the group :iconALL-ART-4-EVER: ALL-ART-4-EVER

Next Gen Inspiration/OriginsI thought it'd be cool to tell you what the inspiration for some of the next gen characters was (aside from what was directly inherited from their parents). A lot of their personalities and some events are based off of real life experiences and aspects of myself. I just put the ones that were specific.

She is a try-hard and is based on some of the girls that I played basketball with. Even though it'd just be a "just for fun" scrimmage, they'd get really upset when they didn't do well or if someone else didn't do well. Just way too serious. Her relationship with Nighty is very much like mine and my brother's (particularly when we were younger). We love each other but we'd argue a lot. He'd annoy me by just trying to act smarter than me and then I'd initiate the roughhousing, win, and then get in trouble. He could totally beat me up now though XDI'm a daddy's girl and I identify a little more with my dad than my mom (I love my mom

I slept soundly that night next to Connor. But the morning was a different story....
I was shaken violently by Connor. "(Y/N)! (Y/N)!" Connor yelled repeatedly. I groaned. "Connor, I'm sleeping." I grumble. "How can you sleep, when you've been shot!?" Connor asks panicked. It was cute. I laugh. "What? I wasn't shot." I say. "Then why are you bleeding?" Connor asks me in a calm yet stern tone. I look down at the sheets. Blood. Well, shit. I start to laugh loudly. Connor stares at me like I'm a maniac. "I'm on my period silly." I say. He tilts his head to the side, signifying his confusion. "Is that when women bleed out of their woman parts?" Connor asks me timidly. I giggle, and nod. "Yeah. I'm fine. I didn't get shot." I smile. "I am so relived." Connor gives me a tired smile. "Glad to hear it. Hey, can we wash these sheets? They smell." I grab my nose. Connor chuckles. "Sure. I will wash them. You go back to bed. You need rest." Connor pulls of

Okay, so you might be wondering "What is this...pixiv fantasia thing?"
-Pixiv Fantasia is a user-run fantasy-themed project organised on pixiv that happens yearly. The project is usually shortened to PixFan in the fanmade English translations since the Japanese shortened name is ピクファン (pikufan).

'That's it!' You thought to yourself.
You tried to move your arms but they were stopped by some type of metal.
'What The Hell! What is that!' You cursed to yourself.
Then you tried to move your legs which seemed to also be chained down. You struggled to move and started cursing aloud.
"Finally awake.... My butterfly?" A strangely familiar voice snickered from the darkness.
"You! Why Am I Here! And Why Am I Chained Down!" You asked in an angry tone.
"Someone seems to have lost their temper~" He joked. You growled and struggled some more.
"You damned Bastard! Let me go!" You demanded.
"I'm afraid I can't do that. You should be punished for your inappropriate language and behavior," He chuckled darkly and revealed a sharp knife that he held behind his back.

You turned away from the mud castle you were making and saw your best friends Feliciano. You've called him Feli ever since you were old enough to speak, because you couldnt pronounce his real name! That was when you were 4. Your 7 now, and so was Feli. You snapped out of your thoughts when Feliciano took you by your muddy hand, and lead you to his side of the property you were on. When you got to his side, there was a big mud pasta castle.
"Vehh! Look _____! Paassttaaaaaa!!!!!" He ran around the castle in a happy mood waiting for you to say something.
"I like it!!! Its totally you!" You said with your cute 7 year old smile. Feliciano smiled back. You spent the rest of the day with your little friend, untill your parents told you, you had to go home.
"Ciao _____!" Feliciano said in his sqeaky child voice. He smiled but you could tell he was sad about you leaving.
"But I don't wanna leave yet!" You looked at him.

What's with 'Studying from Life'!?This is the revisiting of a news article I wrote a few years back.What's with 'Studying from Life'!?5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Allow me to begin this article by mentioning that this was written with aspiring professionals in mind. For those of you who wish to pursue art as a hobby with no intention to make it a career choice, I have no doubts in your abilities as an artist, but art for you is a pleasure seeking thing. I would never wish to turn it into something even remotely reminiscent of 'stressful work'--as a hobby should never come to that. So for you hobbyists, feel free to take this article in, but by no means feel obliged to apply the information if you do not find enjoyment in doing so.
As for you aspiring pros, this is an inevitable and unavoidable step you must take in pursuit of your career. This is your job--and if you don't like it, you're probably pursuing the wrong career!
But I digress.
I, like many of you--strive to be a professional in the field of art. In particular, I am an illustrator. I've been fortunate enough to

Looking at the characters she draws (be it original or commission or fanart) is like looking at photographs. The emotions on her characters look so real, and I love how most of her works are always colorful and sorrounded by nature.
