While my Guitar Gently WeepsI'm sure many of you already know this but for those who don't, late August 23, Jerry Nelson [Floyd Pepper, Count Von Count, Gobo Fraggle and so on] passed away. Jerry was one of the greats, in my [and I'm sure many] opinion, he was the voice of the Muppets, whenever someone talks of a beautiful song, it's normally sung by him. Makes sense since he said once if it wasn't for Jim giving him a job, he would of become a Folk singer [by the way, his CD is really nice, a mix of silly and beauty.]While my Guitar Gently Weeps3 years ago in Personal More Like This
At first when I found out I was stunned, but after a little time, it's ok, Jerry has raised many of us to love music, to count, to adventure, and to laugh. Now, he has gone to the Rainbow Connection, he will be preforming once more with Richard Hunt. He will see old friends, and lost loved ones. Jerry lived a long life, leaving us plenty to remember, so this is why I feel, while tears are inevitable, that we should celebrate, as we did with Jim, and as we did with Richard, we should grab our instru

We're sponsoring Artists' Alley 2012!
We're headed to Comic-Con International:
San Diego to sponsor Artists' Alley!
We Love Artists' Alley
We're back at Comic-Con!
Last year, our sponsorship of Artists' Alley was a huge success. We were able to provide a more comfortable environment for the artists, display their art on huge screens over the Alley, and let people attending the convention draw with deviantART muro on fantastic digital screens. We plan to do this and more in 2012 as we take on the great pleasure of sponsoring Artists' Alley at San Diego Comic-C
The Turtles TrailerI am absolutely delighted with it. It’s everything I hoped it would be: Terrible.The Turtles Trailer1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Had it looked GOOD, there would have been this nagging feeling that I’d be missing out on something if I stuck to my vow of never again watching another Michael Bay movie. I have fond childhood memories of the Turtles, so I may have weakened. But because it looks like, well, a Michael Bay movie, that feeling simply isn’t there. I have no desire, at all, to pay for or sit through that film.
Transformers 3 was the last chance I was willing to give. I thought “There’s no way it could actually be WORSE than Transformers 2. I’ll give it a shot”.
Somehow…. it was.
That was it. That was the breaking point. No more Bay. EVERYTHING he goes near is pure effluent, and all the evidence you need of how toxic a film Turtles is going to be is in that trailer.
Obviously, we don’t know what the plot is at this point, but it’s a
F**k-ugly watermarks.I follow a lot of insanely talented artists here on DA, people whose work I look at in sheer awe and whose skill I can only dream of one day matching.F**k-ugly watermarks.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unsurprisingly, that high quality of work leads to them either having their work ripped off or operating in fear of that happening. They, quite rightly, want to protect their art with a watermark, something which I'm not against at all.
What I am against, what I hate, is people using that god-awful DA watermark.
If you are a good artist: don't be a lazy git. Make your own watermark, use your own logo. You'll protect your work without doing it the disservice of having some automatically-generated arse-smear ruining it.

Tip of the Day: Experiencing a fallThe experience of falling down is as important as getting up in order to succeed. Sometimes failing for a while is what we need to truly appreciate it when we obtain our goal.

now that i have your attention .. ahem XD
i felt the need to brag!
i have finally completed last issue of wildfire, just yesterday, which is my first ever full art project that ever got published!!
so hopefully the updates here will be a little more frequent (that is until my next project XD)
and with more experience i will be able to manage my time a bit better, (and become faster and better at drawing.)
Currently whenever i finish a project i don't even take a break, i immediately switch to doing bloodstain, because i don't know how much time i will have until the next project (it could be 2 weeks or 2 days from one comic to the other)
so yeah XD no break for me XD
anyway just wanted to give you all a status report.

Sketchbook Pro 6So most of you know that I'm a Sketchbook Pro user.Sketchbook Pro 63 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few days back, Autodesk released Sketchbook Pro 6, and I think this is the version that's going to make a lot of people who have YET to experience Sketchbook Pro in full, or haven't really given the past versions a chance, switch over to making it their digital drawing software of choice; heck, even their PAINTING software of choice.
We still have the cleverly-designed user interface, that makes it easy on the eyes and mind when we're brainstorming and sketching. With the handful of new tools introduced, we still have a clutter-free drawing environment, and man, there's some awesome tools this time around. I'll go down the list:
The Brush Library
The main brush toolbar itself has a click-and-drag function, allowing you to store all your often-used brushes in each of the "lanes". You then can click the button on the upper-right and then a fu

artbook questions - again!hey wonderful followers. thanks again for all the help regarding the art theft from last week. i'll keep you posted on what happens!artbook questions - again!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
i'm thinking about that artbook i mentioned a few journal entries back. i have some ideas of how i want to handle the content, which includes a few exclusive pieces, tutorials/walkthroughs and probably a dvd showing my painting process. i want to make it happen! but one thing i've decided is to look for a publisher in the U.S. it would be great since that would make the book altogether more affordable for many of you - it's so expensive to ship from europe! so i wanted to ask if any of you guys could suggest any american publishers or knew any companies that make interesting artbooks that aren't too expensive/gigantic? any tips would be great. thank youuuuuu for reading!

Thanks so much to all who entered! I am really excited to start voting!
~ Voting ~
The group will be putting up polls for each category, so our members can vote for the winners! Each poll will last a week, so that members have plenty of time to vote. Some of our categories have too many entries for polls. In this case, we will put up a journal and ask members to post their choices in the comments. The journals will contain more specific instructions.
I have taken the liberty of moving some of the entries into different categories to give the entrants better chances of winning. I apologize if this offends anyone, but I felt it was best for all involved.
Each participant was allowed 2 entries. I will be looking through each and every entry, so if I find more than 2 by any me

Getting Noticed in dAEveryday, millions of users from all over the world use deviantART, and it is really hard for new users to get themselves noticed. Oh yes, it is HARD. It can actually be a really disappointing experience for some of us. But, if you show some patience and work for it, you may just be able to crack through that wall standing between you and exposure to the community. Remember, all it take is patience. Lots and lots of patience. Oh, and you also need to trust yourself. Just because you couldn't get a huge fan base in several weeks or months doesn't mean that you will never get them. But, there are some really important stuff you need to follow first before getting there.Getting Noticed in dA2 years ago in Personal More Like This
dA is also a community, just like any other community in the world. The only difference is dA is and online community and the others, well they are totally offline . So, this means there will be some standards to be held in there, or else it won't function properly. You are going to have to stick to

UPDATED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may do whatever comes to mind, as long as it shows Regina being happy in some way.
That includes everything from her as the Evil Queen being delighted over some mischief, to her spending time with Henry, or you could show her with whoever you ship her with, whether it’s Emma or Daniel or someone else entirely! Or maybe she’s having a blast trolling the inhabitants of Storybrooke, it’s all for you to decide!
Just some ideas to get your inspiration flowing, but everything is allowed for this contest, as long as it follows the theme.
I hope a lot of people participate, but most of all that you have fun! I can't wait to see what you can come up with, and I would like to wish everyone good luck in the contest!
