Thank you so much to everyone who pimped this, donated prizes - and of course everyone who made an entry. I appreciate it so much!
Watch this space for the results.
So. I'm redecorating my room.

This contest is to design a poster of A3 size and using any medium which I can get printed and framed in order to put up on my wall.
The initial deadline will be July 24th. This may be extended, depending on how things are looking at that time.

What is Spec work?Lately its like a new virus, spreading, this so called contest, were people pick the winning one but they dont give you nothing in return, but they make money. Correct me if im wrong, because probably i miss it but whats the prize in last deviant art event.What is Spec work?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Correcty me if im wrong, people are going to send designs and designs that took months or years in preparations from schools, wasting money in materials, electricity, tablets, tears and blood, and in the end they wont receive anything just a palm in your shoulder saying good job.
Can you pay your bills with your tiny name at the end on credits? Forget about the publicity crappy excuse. People will get paid for this but the winner and contestants they wont.
Its a shame that deviant
Tip of the Week: VisualizingWhen you visualize the task before you do it, it makes it that much easier to accomplish and accomplished better. Especially for drawing and painting. Before I work on a film, I take about 10 or 20 minutes staring at something dark or close my eyes to try and visualize the movie before I start painting.Tip of the Week: Visualizing3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I believe that visualizing is the hardest and most powerful way to think. With conscious and persistent practice you can improve your ability to visualize.
See you soon Sao Paulo! http://www.melies.com.br/mega-palestra/programacao.html
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 CARS2 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
BEFORE WATCHMEN & AH!Well, the word is out: DC Comics is returning to the world of WATCHMEN! And I am drawing all four issues of the DOCTOR MANHATTAN miniseries. First sign of the Apocalypse? You bet!BEFORE WATCHMEN & AH!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's great to finally be able to talk about this project. I signed on AGES ago, and have kept mum about it, until now!
WATCHMEN is arguably the greatest superhero comic ever produced, and without a doubt my absolute favorite. Being allowed to draw these amazing characters isn't actually a dream come true: I never thought something like this would happen. I'm pretty nervous, but having fun so far.
My history with WATCHMEN goes way back. In 1986 I was working at Thunder Road Comics in Burlington, New Jersey, and I sold every issue of WATCHMEN as they came out. It was a pretty amazing time: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS was also shipping, so superhero comics were enjoying a banner year. The mullets, parachute pants, and

now i HAVE to post moreJust found out my one of my favorite editors, Ben Abernathy :iconBen-Abernathy: just joined deviantArt! the short history of us? he was the editor behind my FIRST project with DC back in 2000 even though i did not know it! When i landed the Wildcats Version 3.o, he took over as my editor and guided me thru the years- putting me on covers and allowing me to really try different things, explore design and try painting covers for monthly books.now i HAVE to post more2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Id' say without him taking the chance on me, i'd never have gotten this far in my career, and pushing the portfolio i have today with all the things i can provide. Editors like these are what the industry needs more of. Editors to guide talent and give them opportunities to better themselves, and in turn- hopefully introduce new things to the medium, not tell them what to do to just please the bigger man in charge. Our last project together was Justice League Beyond in which we worked together to develop a better way to create comics that are creat

Ax Cats are an open species!So I figured there was no real reason for me to keep Ax Cats a closed species, and in fact it would be better for me to have them be open to anyone.Ax Cats are an open species!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Feel free to create your very own Ax Cat! And please consider submitting your work to the Ax Cat folder on Toria-Art!
Please note that my usual "adoptables" rules still apply. I don't want any crazy colors, wings, silly tattoos/markings, etc. They can have war paint and maybe minimal piercings (though most of their body is covered in hard chitin scales). They can have bladed weapons attached to their legs, tail, or bonnet, or robotic light machine guns mounted on their backs (only the bigger, stronger ones, though), but nothing that requires manual operation. KEEP IN MIND THAT THEY ARE ONLY ABOUT AS SMART AS A DOG.
Ax Cats are also pack animals. A lone Ax Cat is a dead Ax Cat, as larger Torian creatures (such as the Torian Devil http://toria-art.deviantart.com/gallery/26680854#/d30y5gc ) will h

The man played a whole range of characters, from Smee (Hook) to Khrushchev (Enemy at the Gates) but he'll probably be remembered (and envied by those of us with a looser grip on reality) for his role as Eddie Valiant, the LA gumshoe from Who Framed Roger Rabbit whom the badly-drawn Jessica bounced off, slunk around and serenaded.
For that, I think we'll all forgive him for Mario Bros.

O__________OSo last night I stopped at a gas station to get, well, gas, while I was doing my paper route. I had a complaint from a customer, stating they did not receive their paper yesterday. Me being, well, me, I carry around with me (in my car that is) a small portable typewriter. I don't have good penmanship AT ALL, so when I need to leave a customer a note on a manner I type one up and put it with their paper. Anyway,so I'm sitting there pumping gas while typing on my typewriter listening to my MP3 player, which is hooked up to play through my car speakers. Suddenly some good ol' Benny Goodman comes on. Oh yea, I"m happy, so I turn it up some.O__________O3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I then hear the click of the gas nozzle finishing fillin' up Simmons (my Blazer to who don't know the story) and stepped out to put it back. From inside the gas station a ninty-ish year old man walks- no- waddles out and heads for his car in front of mine. Well he hears the music, so waddles over to me curiously. By that time I'm back inside my vehicle
PuritanArt"Your deviation Sonic Screw(driver) was reported for Explicit Pornography. The report was reviewed by a member of the Staff and action was taken, deleting the deviation and marking the report as Resolved.PuritanArt2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Additionally, the following comment was provided:
A member of staff has reviewed this deviation and has determined that the theme itself, or one or more details present in the scene, has made the work unacceptable for submission here.
As such this deviation has been removed in accordance with our policies and should not be resubmitted."
"Explicit Pornography"?! Aw, jeez, guys. You must have the worst collection of porn on the planet to think that was explicit.
A 90s Rochelle Swanson outing was more explicit that that pic, and that stuff got aired, uncut, on terrestrial UK TV (god bless you Channel 5, you made the young Jack jolly).
I believe that, for something to be labelled "explicit", SOMETHING must be visibly going in SOMEWHERE. Such was not the case in the offending image,

He did a great deal of work with Jim Henson and company, so, anyone who A) was a child, and/or B) ever watched TV, will most likely have seen or heard him at some point.
Due to the fact I suck at math, The Count obviously failed me on that front, but damn did I get some good tips on maniacal laughter.
