This weekend I painted a large mural in Chinatown!I love painting large and it is always an honor to be asked by a wonderful organization to paint at their space and represent their community visually. This week I was asked to paint a piece in Oakland Chinatown at Lincoln Square. An amazing community center the has droves of smiling people enjoying the giant ship like playgrounds, the expansive b-ball courts, and sword fighting in the lawn bowling court, to name a few. The ages ranges from 1 to 100+ and all the folks were super stoked to see this painting in process. My good friend Christopher Mackessy, ( who took most of the photos for the deviantART Gear Shop,) is also a painter, As well as a teacher. He procured the walls through the community center with the blessings and we spent the last 2 days painting. Many of his students came out and we fitted them with brushes and oversized tee shirts and they went to town with our instruction. With the help of these smiling pint sized 8 year old Picassos we crushed it with a mixtureThis weekend I painted a large mural in Chinatown!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
FacebookHi guys,Facebook2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I can't upload any proper painting for a while so I opened a page on Facebook to upload some of my doodle. ( which is too rough to be uploaded to DA lol )
Here's the link if you're interested
All of my painting will still be uploaded to DA and my Pixiv, and I will share it on the page once there is a new update.
By the way some people are asking the difference between my DA and Pixiv
I uploaded all of my artworks to both sites, but some of them are not in pixiv since I'm too lazy to upload my old painting there lol
Usually my pixiv site will have the uncensored version of the pic, you will need an account to view my artwork there.

What name do you go under, and what are it's origins?
The name i go under is Zen (Zener in piecing) mainly... i got given the name by a friend of mine who writes Beta, he gave it me because he though i was one of the most chilled out and relaxed people he knew...
What form of street art do you make?
I make Big legal productions with my crew HTB, we're based around liverpool and the north west of england but we travel all over the country to our linsk with other artists such as the NTR crew from stoke, Insektr from sheffield and Migs from leeds.
How would you describe you particular style of graffiti?
I would like to consider the pieces i paint as wildstyle, even the guys i write with, when i step back and ask them about a particular letter in the piece they just tend to respond with "sorry

Despues de educarse y leer e aqui las reglas para tener un Utau aceptable:
-Intenta que su diseño sea original y unico [No queremos dos Mikus en el mundo y mucho menos una marysue o garystu]
-NUNCA tomes la voz de otro utau sin permiso, pues esa persona se mató haciedo su propio utau ¿por que tu no? eso se llama robar =/
-No uses la voz de un actor, personaje de anime, etc, tambien seria robo de voz, y no queremos meter en problemas al la creadora del programa AMEYA/AYAME
-Cuando utilizes un UST ó VSQ para hacer un utau mencionar al creador de tal

Infinitum Preview 1It's here: http://sdrv.ms/15m1nI5Infinitum Preview 11 year ago in Personal More Like This
Keep in mind this is a preview and not everything works!
If you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, you can use infinitum as it is. However, if you are using Windows 8, you will need to create a toolbar on your taskbar to make space for the start button (see here for example: http://www.askvg.com/how-to-enable-good-old-start-button-orb-and-start-menu-in-windows-8/ ). Windows XP should use a theme with a larger taskbar (here's a good theme: http://fav.me/d5bocyw ).
If you cannot run this application, make sure you have .net 4.0 or higher installed on your computer.
I will try to make Infinitum more flexible in the next release as well as get more things to work

Limitation Added to deviantWATCH
Due to constraints within the +Watch system, we have added a 5,000 deviant limit to the amount of deviants you can +Watch. This change only affects a very small amount of deviants, all of whom have been contacted privately regarding the matter. In the future, you will receive a notification if you attempt to watch more than 5,000 deviants.
Please note also that this only affects how many deviants you can +Watch, not how many deviants can +Watch you.

Over the years I have produced a range of tutorials on artistic use of the computer. Most of them concerns rather general concepts and can hopefully give something regardless of which program you are using or even be of some interest for traditional, non-digital artists. Some examples of my art can be found in the gallery.
That said, to get the most out of these you should know that I mainly use the open-source image manipulation program GIMP. I also work a lot with the painter program MyPaint. These are both very powerful programs capable of great artistic expression. Being open-source programs, they are both legally free to download and use without any cost. They exist for many platforms, including Linux, Mac and Windows, so they are worth trying out if you haven't already.

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

Tips for Starting Commissions I was thinking about my last journal, where I asked why everyone and their cat wanted to sell commissions so badly. I recieved some really insightful answers.Tips for Starting Commissions8 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I also had a lot of people asking me "How much should I charge for my work?"
I'll add a Disclaimer right here in front, as for whatever reason, something always offends someone :iconstunplz: . So I'll start off by saying, this is just my personal journal, and I'm just one person who has some experience with this. I'm not making a judgment on who should sell what, just writing some things I have personally learned along the way.
Well that's out of the way :iconyodawgplz:
So most artists starting off go through a period of confusion on how to price work. They get a lot of suggestions, or theories from well-meaning people such as:
"Artists always undervalue themselves. Don't charge less than minimum wage per hour"
This is true, and I agree. However, unfortunately,

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?
