Some of you might remember the old days on conceptart.org when everyone would post all the things they drew every day and kick each other's butt and give critique and get motivated over seeing how much everyone around you would be improving. For the last years, there hasn't really been a place to get that kind of motivation any more.
I made a small forum to rekindle that kind of helpful atmosphere. It's a really small community, just for posting practice work and getting critique from others. A bunch of great people are already there posting their daily stuff and kicking each other's butt. Obviously I'm there too, updat

Painting ProcessHey everyone~!Painting Process3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a while, hasn't it?
I'm kind of in a crunch with my finances right now. T_T Agghghhh I wish I got paid more~
So, like my poll had stated, I'm thinking about auctioning some original pieces. I haven't had time to draw anything yet, but I plan to soon. If not auction, I might just sell them (although you might have to pay more if I just sell them vs. auctioning them off) But we'll see. If you're interested, the pictures will be 9"x12" watercolor paintings, like my White's Day picture I just uploaded today.
Okay, so while I was working on it, I took pictures of my process with my camera phone because I felt like it.
And now I feel like sharing them with you, so you can see the steps I took to complete it!
I know some have asked for a tutorial, but I already had made this one a loooong time ago: http://fav.me/dvjmsz

My BlogTV viewersAs I've said many a time, my BlogTV viewers have been watching me for almost a whole year getting to know the good and bad sides of me whether I like it or not , heh.My BlogTV viewers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well today was one of the most pleasant surprises that they could have given me and allow me to explain how I saw it:
I was working away trying to learn SketchUp in order to model some maps from 5th Capsule which I have writen some three chapters of, when all of sudden I hear a knock at the office door. My office is deep within the office area , so sometimes I don't hear it. It was one of my students with a GAP bag and non-threatening demenor.
I asked him what it was, to which he replied 'when you open it, you'll know'. I responded quickly with another question : 'will it explode'? He assured me it wouldn't. I took it back to my office and the BlogTV people were there as I was in the middle of broadcasting.
I open it.
Apparently, my fans from the show all got together and bought for my birthday not o
Soul Drinkers and Imperial Guards!So today I received a treat in my facebook inbox from old colleague and now-kickass GW artist, Kevin "Kingmong" Chin: http://www.blacklibrary.com/Blog/Art_and_Soul.htmlSoul Drinkers and Imperial Guards!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Right now, I'm still awaiting a response from the Black Librarians to see if I am allowed to post some higher-res versions of my 3 Soul Drinkers covers here on DA. Till then, this is all they have up on their blog and all I have to show for, for now! For you Soul Drinkers fans out there, I was told not to reference any notable characters of the SD lore and come up with my own designs.
The general brief for the 3 covers was to have a tactical space marine, a captain, and lastly a dreadnought (being awoken). I thought it would be a neat idea to compose all the covers from a similar worms eye angle, not just for theatrics but rather to literally show the life cycle of a Space Marine as he fights and rises through the ranks, leading his brethren and eventually being entombed within a dreadnought to continue his tireless fig

I'm pretty sure most of you have experienced a case or two where you've come across an amateur picture of some guys' or girls' privates - And not the pretty kind with professional lighting and poses which makes for a nicely crafted artistic photo - No I mean the photos which can be best described as that horrible memory you have from being a kid where you shared the changing room with the older people when you see someones fully developed private part staring at you scarring you for the rest of your life. Yeah those awful pictures - They are all over this site - LEGALLY. And the mentioned group is JU
5 Fundamental Skills (by Bobby Myers)5 Fundamental Skills Every Artist Should Master5 Fundamental Skills (by Bobby Myers)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
(by Bobby Myers)
As an artist, your job is to immerse your viewers into a world that you have built and guide them safely through it. Artists have much in common with storytellers. Storytellers have several tricks that they use to keep their readers coming back for more. Like storytellers, artists can use similar tricks to help them produce more compelling artwork. In this article, we will explain 5 fundamental skills that every artist should master. Let's take a look!
The most important aspect of art to me personally is the composition. It sets the stage for everything else. This is your way to guide and lead the viewer to make them feel as if they are actually in your picture. If this part of the process is not created and controlled properly, everything else can and probably will fal

The End of the Twinkie?http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2012/11/16/hostess-twinkies-ding-dongs-wonder-bread-going-out-of-business/1708409/The End of the Twinkie?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
World War 3 may just be months away, with much of the middle east currently being blown apart by missiles and the locals setting their neighbours on fire, but the real news is that the Twinkie, the USA's primary contribution to world cuisine, could cease to be.
"You eat those?" I hear people ask. Hell no. Never eaten one in my life. There's something about their unnatural, chemical-yellow colour and that they have a half-life rather than a use-by date that just sets off one too many alarm-bells.
In fact, I'm pretty sure that if you read the print on the pack, you'll find asbestos to be a key ingredient.
Even John McClane can't keep one down, and he took out a building full of terrorists with nothing but his bare feet and a Santa hat.
Which leads to my point: Without the Twinkie, there are SO many lines from SO many classic movies that future generations just a
Farewell to The CountJerry Nelson, best known as the voice and pupeteer of Sesame Street's numerically-obsessed vampire, The Count, has died:Farewell to The Count2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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.

TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS...."The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who'll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you're sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that's almost never the case." - Chuck CloseTO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS....2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I got the book!I drove up to UDON HQ a night or two ago and got myself 5 copies of the GIRL SEVEN book! It looks really pro and the images are almost full size to the page! I can't believe it's done.I got the book!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
After the kids went to sleep wife and I read the book from start to finish soaking up every detail. Only 3 spelling mistakes I found, but more importantly all the images printed out nicely. Overall I'm happy with the outcome and I have no doubt that with the additional commentary for each piece it will be more than just another artbook.
I am already thinking of new concepts for the next book including some story plot as well, though nothing is in stone at this point. I will be putting together some more prints, though right now I have to do some UDON work before I can get to that.
I should mention that to all of you who did order the book online, or will do so, please give it a high rating on the amazon site. This actually does help me out quite a bit. If the book sells well enough, it will wa

Sorry about the title. It was stuck in my head so I had to xDD.
note: Faving this journal might help with your exposure but it's solely up to your fellow deviants ~
It takes me a while to put these together, so if you commented on my other journal to be featured, please take a look at everyone else's work too. After all, it's only fair that way and if you don't, it's just a little selfish and your conscience will bug you . So yah, share the love, guys!
These are ordered first come first serve style; I will be showing around 50 pieces at one time (I still have a lot to go through and it adds up every time i put up a feature journal), and be featuring once a week as to not clog up your message boxes. It'll probably take ....a few months, so please be patient!
