THE NEXT THREE YEARS OF MY LIFE
I had received a job offer at Microsoft. I guess this could have been one of my first 'big time' jobs, so I was a little ecstatic. It felt like a slow build to get to this point, after numerous indie games and under the table freelance jobs, but finally it had come.
I was working with my now best friend and business partner, Stephan, a suave German who I had met only a year or so prior. He had brought me into the fray, working with several other individuals who will, well, simply be known as individuals for privacy sake.
But yes, finally, I could put a professional company I

No seriously, I really dislike the new layout on deviation pages. I want the fave button to be where it's supposed to be and not weirdly misplaced under the artist's name.

I want this to be big and I want the idea of a unified community project to catch on. Nothing brings people and ponies together like a common goal.
Thank you all so much!

The ship was enormous; It had everything one would need to be entertained for a long voyage across the sea. I shall tell you all that I did:
Day 1: The Departure
I explored most of the ship and my quarters, which were small but comfortable. The Ship itself was bigger and grander than any mall i had ever seen. That's right ladies, you heard me
I dug in at the buffet first, then did some dancing out on the pool area with a bunch of others; we danced to songs like "boot scootin boogie" and Electric Slide". It was a blast and a few people cheered me on.
Later, once the ship was taking off, I went to the bow of the ship to do my "I'm the King of the World" thing. But since there were too many people there, I decided to just do

The Villains of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic:
1. Nightmare Moon: She parodies the villain Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. They both wear dark clothing, laugh a lot, and they share similar lines, such as this: "You Fools! You thought you could defeat ME?!!"
She parodies the greatest villain in all of the Disney movies in many ways, and does a good job of it. Well done, Lauren Faust

Well, first off, I would like to announce that I have reached 7,000 pageviews and and on my way towards 8,000!! Thank you everyone for helping me reach this in around two weeks. You guys are AWESOME!!!
Next, I've decided to keep a record from now on with whom I ask commissions from. The reason being is because sometimes I forget this person...especially when they take a long period of time to work on a commission. SO, to prevent me from forgetting them, as well as their payment, I will keep a list right here of all I have hired.
If your name is not on the list and you are working on a commission for me, let me know and I will add you so I do not forget

Big things comingIf you guys follow me on facebook then you know this but for those that do not, I just won a contest on houndcomics.com where I get a single one shot issue printed and published of my character Inquisitor. Im pretty damn stoked even though as of right now I don't have people in place to make it happen. Not sure if is a B&W book or full color, but I don't have a letterer or colorist in place to make this happen. Sigh. But can't use that as an excuse just need to blow this up as big as possible and see what happens.Big things coming1 year ago in Personal More Like This

It's actually pretty much written in full, but I need to put together the screenshots and actual file still. I also might be working on a detailed matte painting tutorial for PSDTuts+ soon, so I'll keep everyone updated on that.

I've just been busy talking to the Docs and I also recieved a new scan this week. They wanted to see how I've healed and check for any new growths. The good news is that I'm clear and the spots they operated look good overall. They did say that I have two spots on my liver that they will be watching, there not sure what they are yet, but my scans down the road will help determine that if they do start going, but they could just end up being tissue on the liver.
I also finally found out about the chemo. I had been waiting on that news. It's been approved and I should start it next week. The good news it won't be as long as the last dose I recieved, which was 5 days a week and 6hrs a day. Which is good news. Since I'm taking the chemo to preven

My REVIEW of Marvels Epic AVENGERS MOVIEEver since Marvel Studios launched their first movie "Iron Man" and began their subtle hints about the upcoming "Avengers" movie which now graces the big screen, fans wondered if Marvel could truly pull off something this big and fulfill the hype......The answer, is a HUGE YES..My REVIEW of Marvels Epic AVENGERS MOVIE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Each of their movies have been building up to it and the film delivers it's promise to fans with the story, action and pure comic book fun. I have to say something. I hope DC Entertainmnet makes it mandatory for their writers to watch this. Where DC's "Green Lantern" failed in Cosmic Thrills and Fun, "The Avengers" never misses a beat. Plus writer and director Joss Whedon gives us fanboys finally a true movie version of the Hulk!! I loved all his scenes and it was a joy to see him finally talk and act like he does in the comics.
The film's plot is arranged so that each of our heroes get equal screen time and are allowed to shine. You have to applaud Whedon for pulling that off, making a team movie with a lot of
Tracing?!Hey guysTracing?!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Still really sick, so I haven't been able to do much recently. The only thing I've managed to finish is a request from one of my friends, and that took alot out of me mentally and physically. I've got some sort of virus that's causing my hands to shake rather badly and my eyes to be all blurry, but that's not stopping me from at least researching art techniques.
Which brings me to my point. I was watching a few "speedpaints" on youtube, and realized that ALOT of them start off with the person tracing a pre-existing image, then proceeding to paint over that... is this a thing now? Are people seriously trying to pass off their child-like tracing paper lines as masterful understanding of form? I haven't used tracing paper to assist in my art since I was roughly... I don't know... 4 years old I suppose.
It angers me a little to see this because I have worked my ass off understanding shape & substance so that I can accurately portray it in my art, and these people are just tracing
