Fantastic Artists Feature - February 2014This is going to be a special feature for the folks that have brought life and light to my life. I wanted to make something a little closer to the beginning of 2014, because I consider this a celebration of all of the things that a new year symbolizes (hope, connection, and the strong will to better ourselves)... but better late than never!Fantastic Artists Feature - February 20141 year ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you for just being in general amazing. You are kind, funny, and overall just a pleasant and uplifting person to be around. You feed my inspiration with your creative ideas and beautiful art, and (more importantly) fuel my motivation by giving me metaphorical kicks in the ass when I'm screwing off or moping instead of drawing. You and the hubby are both wonderful friends, and I feel privileged to have you in my life.
I'm not sure that there will ever be a message that you send me that doesn't make my day brighter or make me sm

I've been busy speeding up the schedule so I can release my next webcomic, Fisheye Placebo as soon as possible. The current release date is set to early 2013.
That means Knite had to slow down a bit since it's difficult to work on 2 projects at once. However, I still aim to update Knite ch5 beta strips around once a week. You may have noticed that in the past, I posted Knite in full chapter flash format, but I really enjoyed posting beta pages on my :iconknites: account since this allowed more audience interaction. The problem was switching between accounts was too much pain, and updating several pages a day flooded people's accounts. In the end, I decided to post strips on this account instead. The strips will only be posted once a week so if you don't want to be spoiled, just ignore the strips

My DA StoryUhmmmm.... so mebbe I WILL do one of these. Because I'm procrastinating going to sleep and shiz.My DA Story1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I have an interview for a job tomorrow eheheh... AT THE LIBRARYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
*cough cough* anyway, back to the topic at hand.
My DA story is actually kinda boring and probably a little weird.
I've known about DA since me and my sister were about... I dunno... 5th grade? Almost 10 years ago now! We both loved writing stories, and were constantly looking for pictures online that portrayed something like the characters we made. I'm not sure when, but sometime during all the Google searching we found DA, this gigantic whirlpool of art and amazingness. Needless to say we both spent many the hour browsing the beautiful eye candy floating around here, and finding inspiration for our own drawing and writings.
At the time, me and her were both drawing avidly. She took the anime approach, while I went the animal route.
During middle school was when I first started coming to DA habitually and
How to improve as an artist.Hi guys,How to improve as an artist.3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I could start by talking about the basics, perspective and all that stuff but that's pretty much something you have to learn or know already, either in a school or self-taught.
One thing most people don't talk about nor understand is the answer to this question.
Do you blow through an image or do you draw, stop think, draw, stop think...etc?
Most of you already seen a professional working and he just blows through a white canvas and in 2 to 4 hours creates something original.
Obviously we aren't talking about fanart here. Because that is just copying someones else design/idea and you wouldn't have any problem, because the brain work is already there for you to go around, even if you gave it your personal touch, like I've done in some Macross stuff, it's just not that hard.
Fanart is a great area but for example I've done 3D work for games, I obviously didn't include my Macross fanart in the portfolio I sent to the hiring companies because that is a big no no.

Just deal with it...they told meHello guys, long time since I updated my deviant, from works to news and journals.Just deal with it...they told me2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now going directly to the point of this journal in matter, I am going to try to clarify some of the reasons for the above recently mentioned and I am going to be as honest as possible. During the last 2 or 3 years I have been growing economically, and raising positions in big companies as a front end developer and web designer, and had to travel long distances to reach the office in a very uncomfortable crowded subway which left me with very little time for studying and painting. At the begging it felt great, it was good, I was ok with it, but eventually things turned up to be like anything I have ever expected. I started to feel more and more sick every month; 3 bronchitis, flu, Pharyngitis and pneumonia were some of the diseases I had all in just about 6 months.
Recently I assumed a great position in my new company and the situation went from bad to worse, as if my body was actually begging me to stop

First feature journal - http://fav.me/d4fmq8n
Animation whether it be 2D or 3D is an important in the Game Development industry and there are many jobs, artists, enthusiasts out there who would agree with just that. 3D Animation directly correlates with 3D Modeling, while 2D Animation directly correlates with concept/2D art.
For this month's feature here at :icongame-art: we are featuring artists who are a part of our group who primary specialize (or secondary) in a skill that relates to 2D/3D Animation. This will be a positive feature, listing off some of the pro's of 2D/3D Animation, some industry jobs you can get with the talent, and showing off some bad ass work from our awesome members.

Setting: The Fire Kingdom 10 years before the events of Adventure Time.
The Fire Kingdom is abuzz with anticipation as it's the first day for fire elemental training school to begin. Unlike the other years this one was special as the daughter of the royal family themselves would be attending. The fire elemental training academy has had it's share noble's children pass through there doors in the past but this was the first time a member of the royal family has attended as they normally have private tutors however this time was different as the Flame Queen insisted that her daughter meet others her age.
The importance of fire elemental training is not to be underestimated as fire people if left untrained can very well threaten to destroy the entire kingdom if not all of Ooo. Every fire person needs some form of fire elemental training of which the fire elemental training academy was the best. The fire elemental training academy is mainly reserved

Modelling by numbers: Part One AModelling by numbersModelling by numbers: Part One A2 years ago in Personal More Like This
An introduction to procedural geometry
What and why?
Procedural geometry is geometry modelled in code. Instead of building 3D meshes by hand using art software such as Maya, 3DS Max or Blender, the mesh is built using programmed instructions.
This can be done at runtime (the mesh does not exist until the end-user runs the program), at edit time (using script or tool when the application is being developed), or inside a 3D art package (using a scripting language such as MEL or MaxScript).
Benefits of generating meshes procedurally include:
Variation: Meshes can be built with random variations, meaning you can avoid repeating geometry.
Scalability: Meshes can be generated with more or less detail depending on the end-user's machine or preferences.
Control: Game/level designers with little knowledge of 3D modelling software can have more control over the appe

As a little celebration, I thought I’d run a contest (something I’d actually been meaning to do for a while).
It’s fairly straightforward. There will be two top prizes, each awarded to the best of the following: The best image (best art wins. Simple) and the funniest image (Art quality isn’t as important as the idea behind it).
To be in with a chance of winning, all you need do is draw something related to the Sequential Art webcomic. It could be a single character, multiple characters, your own strip, anything. Draw it and post a link to it in the comments section of this journal.
First prize for each of the two categories is:
A copy of Sequential Art Volume 4
A print of the 10 year image (seen below)
A free commission (colour. Single character)
There will also be 10 runners up (total), each of whom will

I know this has nothing to do with my drawings but since I know that a lot of you like the Assassin's Creed franchise I decided to post this on here.
This video is my first attempt of creating a fanmade trailer. It took some hours but I am pretty happy with the outcome.
I always thought the song was really fitting for the story of Rogue.
So I would be really happy if you could give me some feedback and tell me what to do better next time.
Hope you like it!
