OC contest closed. Winner TBA
Sorry for the dead air on my page. Rough seas. Hopefully back to normal soon.
•UPDATE 3/14/14 and 3/20/14
I'll be out of town tomorrow through Wednesday of next week. Communication via comments, notes, and email will still be possible while I'm gone but I won't be working on, sending out, or posting any art (…or doing anything that would be a pain in the butt without a real keyboard). I've also notified everyone with an active commission with me of this individually.I'm back at my computer and regular activity has resumed.
This is also a reminder that my OC contest closes at the end of this month. There's still plenty of time to enter if you're interested and want some free art from me. (Details below.)
Happy Pi Day, everyone!

5%If you're reading this now, it means you're roughly in the 5%. Most people who go online to read about comics will end up reading previews and "top 10" lists--subjects we all, or course, enjoy. But the articles/blogs that critically analyze our industry are usually only read by two types: people in the biz whom are affected by this stuff, and the few readers who are interested in reading more than word balloons when it comes to comics.5%3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And I'm not knocking people who don't care to read these articles. All readers are contributing to the industry with their buying power, and I'm thankful for them, even if they're not in the 5%. I admit, if I had a normal 9-5 job and a boss that was kicking my ass 5 days a week, I might not have the tolerance for these sorts of articles either.
That being said, I think we need more of these articles/blogs written from different points of view--more from creators especially. The 2010s will likely be r

GraysLast week when I said that I wouldn't be doing con sketches of copyrighted characters, I had no idea that the news would get the coverage that it did. But seeing as how I helped poke the hornet's nest--and having taken the time to read the opinions of readers and other artists--I feel like it would be helpful if I responded to help clarify what's been happening.Grays3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off, I think that what happened regarding this issue highlighted the BEST of our industry. I'm thrilled with the results, although I don't find Marvel's statement reassuring (more on that later). When we learned that Marvel was pursuing the $17,000 from Friedrich, we came together as concerned professionals and fans and managed to affect the situation. Even though we disagreed, at least we weighed out the options. And we even came together to set up funding to help out Friedrich. With the use of Twitter, blogging, and proper action from the media outlets, w

No More Unauthorized ArtworkRegarding the debate of whether comic artists should continue selling unauthorized prints/sketches of characters they don't own, I think Bissette and his legal advisor are 100% correct. So from now on, I won't be doing any sketches or commissions at shows of any character that I don't own. Am I rolling over in fear of Marvel? Maybe, but as it states below, they're in their legal right to come after me if there's ever a dispute. I love to complain about the Big Two, but I can't (in good conscience) get upset at them if I'm breaking the rules myself. Being DC exclusive, maybe I can get a waiver that allows me to sketch DC characters, so I'll keep you updated.No More Unauthorized Artwork3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Herald Of SpringMărțișor is an old Romanian celebration at the beginning of spring, on March the 1st. Symbolically, it is correlated to women and to fertility as a means of life and continuity. The tradition is authentic in Romania, Moldova, and all territories inhabited by Romanians and Aromanians. Mărțișor, marţ and mărțiguș are all names for the red and white string from which a small decoration is tied, and which is offered by people on the 1st day of March. The string can also be black and white, or blue and white). Giving this talisman to people is an old custom, and it is believed that the one who wears the red and white string will be strong and healthy for the year to come. It is also a symbol of the coming spring. Usually, women wear it pinned to their clothes for the first 12 days of the month, until other spring celebrations, or until the bloom of certain fruit-trees. :icontruesmiles:Herald Of Spring3 years ago in Personal More Like This

A Guide to Effective TaggingA new method to promote and discover art has been released to the community in the form of Tags! When submitting art, adding relevant tags to your deviations will help viewers discover art of interest to them and give your work more exposure.A Guide to Effective Tagging4 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
You can add tags based on a variety of things, be it subject matter, themes, medium used, fandom, or anything else you feel is important.
Use these tips to make the most of tags and help your art to find its audience:
Keep it simple. The less complicated the tag, the easier your art is to discover.
Be specific. If you take a picture of a rose, tagging it as #flower, while correct, won’t get your art as much attention as tagging it #rose will. You can, of course, tag both.
Tag efficiently. If your art is based on Lord of the Rings, tag it #LordOfTheRings and/or #lotr. You don’t need to tag every combination — t

Frequently Asked Questions.--- PERSONAL ---Frequently Asked Questions.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What is your name and where are you from/where do you live?
My name is Abby and I live in Malaysia.
What is your first language and what other language do you speak?
My first is Bahasa Malaysia. I also speak English.
How did you come up with your Deviantart/Tumblr usernames? What was the story behind each of them?
I have quite of numbers of usernames for my Tumblr blog and only one for my Deviantart, that is Colours07. So let's start with my Deviantart username.
I decided this name for Deviantart because I couldn't make up my mind with all the colour names I wanted to put for my username. I couldn't pick up at least one colour because I like all of them, and so because I didn't want any colour to be left behind, I gather all of them and became Colours. The spelling is "Colours" because I was taught that way and because "Colours" have 7 letters. "07" being my favourite n
