I HATE THIS GUY. Seriously. I quit, LOL.I discovered Kim Jung Gi during my years living in South Korea when I came across his first sketchbook in '09. It was a blue and red bible of non-stop art. it made me cry. SEEING him do what he does, however, makes me contemplating giving up art altogether, lol. T________T #SoGoodI HATE THIS GUY. Seriously.

Totally Made A Little Girl's Day [EDITED FOR NEWS][EDIT]Totally Made A Little Girl's Day [EDITED FOR NEWS]3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just ran into my little friend and her mother again, here at the library!
She recognized me and came right up to me while I was logging in, just now! X3 She gave me a hug and showed me some of the new drawings she's been working on!
HAPPY DAY, GUYS! 8D MY DAY IS NOW OFFICIALLY A HAPPY DAY!
No, the title doesn't lie.
I made a little girl's day, today. (And apparently her mother's as well.)
I had gone into work and been asked to clock on early because the training manager was running behind in what all she needed to get done so the store could be ready when we opened, and therefore, there would be no one to watch the dining room register in the event customers came in.
And I'm so glad I did this.
Right about 11:00 exactly, I was watching the dining room while one of my coworkers was restocking parfait ingredients behind me, when all of a sudden I hear a little voice squeak "Excuse me" from the other side of the counter. I walked to the

it's driving me nuts how many artists
give up doing art because of people or their situation.
So I wanna tell you my story, growing up and becoming an artist.
The reason I'm writing this out is because I really wanna be able to inspire, even if I'm not the greatest of artists.
I know for a fact, manga artists have much more hardship trying to become famous than painters and sculptor's etc.
Because there's just some idiots out there that think all anime is Sailer Moon, and who LOVES to control your life more than other people. Parents, friends w/e
My parents were very against the idea of me doing manga in the future, being famous and stuff.
It's childish, you're gonna be poor, you're gonna ruin your studies. My teachers weren't any better.
My real-life friends were either against, unsupportive or ignorant about doing manga art.
And being in my country with little population, that I can understand.
At this point, a lot of manga artists out there would give u
A creature in my house - contest #9This contest has ended. The winners announement can be found here.A creature in my house - contest #91 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
-Mum, can I invite the neighbour from the top floor for a tea? He's cute.
-Darling, we live alone on the top floor and there's just the roof above us.
Is it a nice house elf? Or the annoying one stealing just a single sock from a pair? Or its cousins, living in the wardrobe and biting holes in your coats. Or something worse, disturbing or gruesome... Does it live in your room, in the kitchen, or somewhere else in your house? What is it?
This Autumn, in this contest your task is to present us that creature from your house. Inside - no gardens. Unless the garden is inside. And it doesn't have to be your house, could be the one you dream about. Heading back to the creature itself - you may consider it an invader from your point of view, but perhaps it lived there a long time before you were born... or it follows you wherever you move in. Good if it's a harmless on

SPACE DANDY?Space Dandy is a new animated tv series By Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop/Samurai Champloo). It's a pretty ground-breaking show in that it's the first japanese animated TV series with a world-wide premiere (starting in America FIRST). It's personally my favorite, 2D animated tv series airing in the states right now.SPACE DANDY?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As a consumer of animated content on TV for decades, I (like many I'm sure) am quite used to getting quality stuff finished and packaged, so I can take things things like SD for granted. However, as a Tv animation series producer/director, I know how incredibly challenging & difficult it is to produce/direct a single episode from a hand-drawn, animated action or comedyTV series (be it 11 minutes format or 22 minutes). So watching what Watanabe and his crew are doing from a production/planning/execution standpoint is a lesson in humility for me. This is high-level stuff for a TV budget and it makes a me a little envious that the guys across the pond have i

Artist's Toolbox: Social Media WebsitesIn this day and age, with the internet at just about everyone's fingertips, social media is making a big boom and is useful for so much more than just socializing with others. Each day more and more businesses jump on the social media bandwagon to help market and promote their goods. For artists this is no different, as these websites are an excellent tool to market yourself, your skills, and of course your art!Artist's Toolbox: Social Media Websites1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
Benefits of using Social Media Websites
Starting out brand new on any social media website can be a bit daunting and building watchers/followers can take time though there are ways to get noticed faster if you are willing to put the time and effort into it. Some time ago I wrote an article about gaining exposure. While the article is geared towards gaining exposure on deviantART, a lot of the same concepts apply to other websites as well. Do take a moment and give it a read.
May 2013 - 31 day PAINTING challenge!UPDATE:May 2013 - 31 day PAINTING challenge!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This challenge was certainly a great experience for me. I made some mistakes that cost me a lot of time, for example sometimes I spent 5 hours on a piece that turned out wrong and instead of moving on I took a new paper and tried to make new work within the remaining hour or so. During second week, I've decided to keep the scrap works a part of my challenge, even though I won't publish them they still appear as a thumb on my challenge table. It's simply not possible for me to do 7 good pieces sometimes. Also, posting every day took way too much time to keep up, so I've decided I will be publishing remaining artworks through June continuously.
What I learned during this project of mine? It gave me a better idea about how much time I spend on one piece and what amount of time I waste on post-production. I had to make a few arrangement that hopefully make me more effective today. But mostly, I've tried new subjects that I totally LOVE, mostly architecture and flow

Gaining Exposure To ArtGaining Exposure For Your Own Art:Gaining Exposure To Art3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Being active on the site is probably the best and most effective way to get yourself and your art seen. Leaving thoughtful comments on others art will often result in them coming to your page to find out more about you and see your art. Being involved and making friends will promt people to focus on you and your art giving you a bit more exposure. Leaving critiques, helping to moderate groups, posting in the forums, or simply chatting it up in the chatrooms. These can all be beneficial in getting you more exposure. Below I'd like to outline some of the wonderful ways, I believe, you can gain extra exposure to your art.
Joining groups which are relevant to your interests and the art which you make can be very helpful in getting your art out there and seen by like minded individuals. The introduction of groups by dA has made it very e

Ego vs tirednessThe other day a friend told me that he meet an artist he liked in a con in san diego, and he said to me that he was a real douchebag. I replied to him, does he was all day signing to a lot of people at the both?, did he had pain in his back?, do you catch him running like crazy to the bathroom and you wanted to tell him the story of your life? Did you interrupt him talking to a friend he havent seen in 8 years? When you were talking to him the line was big so he interrupt you to give minutes to the person you didnt see at your back? Did he was sick and taking pills at the booth? Did he receive a call that he wont get paid and got mad? Did a close family member died recently and he just wants to be alone and shows no interest in your talking about Dragon Ball?Ego vs tiredness2 years ago in Personal More Like This
