Merry Christmas!Well, here's a slightly early christmas journal, because I'll probably be very busy around the holidays.
Anyway, first thing's first: a big THANK YOU goes to :iconAndante2: for the sub!
Another thank you and lots of hugs goes to all of my watchers old and new, for just being awesome.
There are some things I need to adress, so that this journal won't be too short OTL
1. There's a kiriban for when I reach my 100k pageviews! Whoever catches it, send me a screenshot and I'll draw you something!
2. If anyone's interested, I did make the scarf+hat harf/scart? I might either offer commissions on that, or the pattern (shhh, you didn't hear that)
3. As you can see from my most recent poll, I have some things lined up in the future, and I hope I'll actually go through with it. So first there's going to be a "short" comic with Darren, which is actually based on a story I received from :icongenomes67:
4. Once I'm done with Darren and then the "weekdays" project, next in the list would be original
Putting yourself out thereThe Internet is the great equalizer. Household names used to be people we saw on TV, in movies, or writers of the most famous books and syndicated articles. Now, it's not strange for a YouTube personality, online cooking blogger, or comedy tweeter with a 9-to-5 job to be mentioned around the dinner table.Putting yourself out there2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Often these online personalities are a lot more approachable online than celebrities for the simple fact that they engage with their fans. Sure, some celebrities are pretty good about replying on Facebook or Twitter, and, yes, submitting something to an ESPN anchor might get you a shoutout on TV, but for the large part, people who are active online want to talk to you, want to converse, want your feedback, and want to engage.
Kind of like in real life, sitting on the sidelines and cruising the Internet silently is a fine way to get information, but to get that real kindred connection, you need to participate. And, better than real life, you can delet

FAQWhat tools do you use?FAQ1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I use a 9x12 Wacom Intuos 3 and a Wacom Cintiq 24 HD. I don't prefer one over the other! If I'm in my studio, I'm on my Cintiq and if I'm on my laptop I'm on my Intuos. It's really just a matter of where I'm doing my work from.
My digital paintings are made with Adobe Photoshop CS5. Every so often, I'll start my drafts on paper but it's far more common for me to build my drawings up completely in a digital environment.
How long does it take you to make a drawing?
How long I spend on a drawing really depends on the complexity. For my larger more complicated drawings, it takes anywhere between 6-20 hours. Smaller and more sketchy drawings take around 1-4 hours.
When did you start drawing? How did you learn to draw?
I've been doodling since I was a kid but I didn't get serious about drawing until I was in college. I majored in Studio
Interview - Seniors Who Were Formerly CVsSenior WeekInterview - Seniors Who Were Formerly CVs1 month ago in Art Features More Like This
Today we are interviewing Seniors who have been Community Volunteers in the past
We've all wondered at some point in our DA life "what does it take to become a Senior?" And when we read the official answer on :faq29: We see that there are many reasons for it, but all of those reasons talk about a positive contribution to the community. Well, today :iconSserenita: and :iconTheGalleryOfEve: sat down with some of those former Community Volunteers who are now Senior Members, to talk to them and see how they view Seniority from their perspective. Our interviewees are :iconastralseed:, :iconmaytel:, :iconrydi1689:, :iconthiefoworld:, :icontiganusi: and :iconTommyGK:
How do you feel about Seniority in general?
This is kind of difficult to answer because I don't feel like there is any one feeling attached to seniority. Seniority is a really cool thing and I am happy to be a part of it, but I also realize that it's n
