No Excuses: Being a ProfessionalToday's "No Excuses" Is a little different. It's less about an excuse that I've been told and more of a misconception people have.No Excuses: Being a Professional10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Last week I did a "Tutorial Tuesday" on becoming a professional. You can read the post yourself, but in a nutshell it's about getting paid for the artwork you create for other people. After I posted it I received several questions and I realized many of you have a terrible misconception as to what it means to be a professional. So I figured I'd use today to clear this stuff up.
First and foremost, I'm a very strong believer that you should always be compensated for the work you do. In your career, especially early in your career, you'll be asked to do alot of work for free. They'll be alot of excuses as to why you don't deserve to be paid: "You don't have enough experience," "You're too expensive," "Artists are a dime a dozen, if you won't

Thats going to involve Writing, character design, drawing, possibly inking, and coloring. WHOA! Lotta work.
I want you guys to help be apart of this process and come along with me on this adventure.
I'm going to be doing a lot of different character designs and environment crafting.
There will be polls for you guys to help me choose what the characters, environments, vehicles, and creatures should look like in the book.
Also feel free to put your own input on what you think would be a cool story line but, after I've shown you the first few characters and previews. I would love to hear your ideas.
I will be posting the first few previews of the characters soon and what their names are.
I'm possibly going to put this up on Kickstarters after everything with the characters and story line has been establish
An Interview...A guy on millarworl.tv forums asked me to answer some interview questions for what I think is a school project... Here're my answersAn Interview...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. What is your process when coloring a page?
Convert the lineart to a channel to give it its own layer and a transparent background. Then do the flat colours to divide everything up. Some people do this all on one layer but I like to break the picture up into a series of layers for each of the major components of the picture. Then I usually do the background first as that helps set the scene, colour scheme, lighting, and overall feeling of the picture. Then it's a matter of doing all the rest!
2. How long, on average, does it take you to finish a piece?
Depends on the complexity and how distracted I get by whatever else is on the internet. My mind starts to roam as I colour stuff so I'm always stopping to look something up somewhere. Taking out the breaks, I'd say an average is about 10 hours.
3. Is it that difficult to get your
Tutorial Tuesday: Comfort ZoneSo I'm going to be trying something different here on Tutorial Tuesdays. I see a ton of tutorials out there on Deviant Art and Tumblr on how to draw. 99% of them are great, but i noticed something: They're all about the same things. You can find a dozen or more tutorials on how to draw faces, or hands, or bodies, or any of that stuff, and most of them are great. So I started thinking to myself, "why do I want to do tutorials about things other people have already done?" Unless I can add some insight to the process I haven't seen before, or contributing anything new, I might as well just refer people to the tutorials that have come before me. It would save me time typing these up, and you'll get the same benefit from it.Tutorial Tuesday: Comfort Zone1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So from now on Tutorial Tuesday is going to be about things I have never, or very rarely ever seen a tutorial on. Thats not to say I'll never do a tutorial again on how to draw faces or hands, but I'm not going to do it un

"I want to be a better artist."This is a sentiment I hear often on dA. It's usually followed by a question regarding how one should go ABOUT becoming a better artist."I want to be a better artist."3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've no doubt made journals like this in the past, but here's another one. This page was in dire need of an update, either way. : )
I could probably talk your ear off for a mile and a half about why I should be the last person you ask for creativity-boosting advice. Aaaand I have my reasons for this, but that's not really what anyone who writes me wants to hear, I think. It's just a fair warning. I'm not an accredited teacher, I was far from the most capable person at my college, I've made a metric crapton of mistakes, and I am nowhere near where I'd like to be in my own personal artistic endeavors. If that doesn't bother you, well, keep on reading!
The best way I could aid anyone interested in bettering themselves would probably be by giving you the advice that inspires me the most. Stuff I've heard from frie

We sell cars to idiots because idiots have money.I came so close to being involved in a traffic accident this evening. I am SO GLAD that I keep my brakes in good working order.We sell cars to idiots because idiots have money.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Long rambling story short: COCKBITING FUCKTARD ran a stop sign. He slammed on brakes. I slammed on brakes. I beep horn, we both pull over, the person I had in the car with me got out of the car and gave the SHITEATING ASSHOLE an utter reaming due to her 7 year old daughter being in the back of the car. The BASTARD then claims his brakes failed.
I would have given him more shit for it but we didn't actually collide so I told him to get his brakes that were apparently failing checked, to drive only in second gear at most until he got to where he was going, and then got back in the car and drove off. We stopped at the shops where she bought a bottle of wine, and then I took her to where she needed to be.
He probably won't be running stop signs for a while.
And for my part, I drove just that weeeeee bit slower on the way home.

I can't have been the only person to notice this but lately there had been a really huge number of chauvinistic shows and commercials on TV. The one that pisses me off the most is the Dr. Pepper commercial. It totally implies that action movies are completely for men and no woman any where enjoys them. My response to that is of course "WTF". I mean statistically speaking I am NOT the average woman - I draw and enjoy reading comics, I play video games, I love Dragon Ball Z, Batman and GTO's. That's not say I'm completely unfeminine either. I wear high heels, make up and skirts. I consider myself straight but I think my breasts are awesome. And even though I am not the average female I still find myself offended by the chauvinistic crap that's considered ok.

A reminder that commissions are still open! They do not count towards the fundraiser total but they DO help.
Hey there boys and girls, with my computer problems officially behind me I'm finally getting back on track. This means Battle Of The Bulges will start being more regular and commissions will start going out again beginning next week. The BOTB total is currently hovering around 400, amazing considering I had to slow things down to deal with my computer issues. The next one will post tomorrow and the next will go up the following week.
As we head towards the end of the month its time to start thinking about winding down the fundraiser. If the next major goal (the $2000 mark) isn't met by May 1st then the funded BOTB images will be produced and that will be the end of that. Here's what has been earned so far as we head towards the $2000 mark:
