This journal entry is dedicated to all friends, watchers, and dA people - thank you all so much for your amazing support in 2014!
So ... As I was thinking of what I can do for you, I just came up with this crazy idea - let's see if it will work!
1) Post 1 - 5 of your best works from 2014 in the comments (link or thumbnail)!
I'll add your art to this journal then.
2) Fave this journal so people will see your ar
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

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!
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

Group Spotlight vol. 4Hello everyone,Group Spotlight vol. 41 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I've started a new series of features where I spotlight a group that contributes to the DeviantArt community somehow either by promoting unknown art, doing regular features, holding competitions, promoting critique/comment systems, showcasing resources to help members improve, etc. I'm hoping to possibly bring to light some great groups here on dA and possibly attract them new members or watchers, by showcasing deviations from their gallery after a brief introduction of the group in itself.
Enjoy and please!
Cute Quaint Quirky is "a fun, new group all about finding the cutest, quaintest and quirkiest bits of art out there on dA! We're looking for clear, creative photos with a vintage feel and a pop of life. We like photos with a warm, whimsical, soft, and dreamy feel that adds a new depth to photography for us."

I came home to gardens filled with weeds and Dahlias blooming along with much much more trying to fight its way out of the jungle. I have many photos to post and I'm trying to catch up fast before more adventures come my way. I don't mean to bombard you all with my photos, but it needs to be done, my stash is overflowing.

Jen is a twenty six year old hobbyist photographer from Massachusetts in the USA. When she's not taking photos, writing articles or suggesting Daily Deviations she enjoys riding and writing fiction. Fun fact - she's a licensed horse riding instructor AND a writer of fiction stories but the latter doesn't often find its way to DeviantArt as she plants herself firmly within the Photography community. Jen can be found over at WOW-Macros, her group - or on her Facebook page by clicking here. You can read some of her latest articl
Monthly Photography NewsletterFor many of us, there's a reason why we are photographers and why we choose to stand behind the camera. We have much more purpose there and we lack a desire to be seen (some of us) and we have no desire to be recognised by face, but merely by name. So what do you make of the Huffington Post's recent article revealing the Photographers behind many iconic images? Check it out here. You may recognise many of the photographs that the photographers are holding, but do you recognise the faces of the artists who framed them? Probably not. You've got the likes of The Beatles, the Afghan Girl, the World Trade Centres at the moment of impact and much much more. But we never really know who is behind those captures - until now. Would you like your face to be well known for the images you take? Or do you prefer being behind the lenMonthly Photography Newsletter2 months ago in Art Features 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 Tagging7 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
