When I do this kind of comparison it encourages me to focus on my artistic journey as opposed to the destination. It creates momentum and great habits.

Contest Now Closed!!!!Theme : Facts of my OCs LivesContest Now Closed!!!!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Contest now closed!!!!
Please give time for the judging process which should take no longer than a week!!
No more entries shall be accepted!!
Thank you to all those who entered and those who have donated prizes!!
Please keep updated as a new journal entry shall be made to announce the winners!<3
The contest involves drawing one of my OCs mentioned below according to the theme. This theme involves drawing an OC according to one of the facts written about them below. For example, if the fact you chose was "they loves scones" then you could draw them eating a scone. Or If your really creative you can tie to facts together, for example, "they loves scones" and "they are bad at cooking" then you could draw them baking scones but burning them! You can include as many facts as you like in the one drawing! The reason I choose this theme instead of the "photo album" them
CONTEST! ***Extended to the 31st of JulyOriginally I thought to follow the others and have a contest around the time you could start changing usernames to help out a bit and I thought i should probably start it already cause well, its cool to be 10mins late to a party just not extremely late... that makes no senseCONTEST! ***Extended to the 31st of July3 years ago in Personal More Like This
ANYWAY! So the idea that went over best was to draw a flying pokemon (can be more than one if you wish) The thing is that the intention is to be creative (such a guess) It could be whats considered as a flying pokemon, one that should/shouldnt be considered flying type, sticking a pair of wings on a random pokemon or even something alike to the famous flying pikachu! I dont care what you do aslong as it sticks along the lines of Flying Pokemon!

:icontechgnotic: by techgnotic
StarCraft II is the hot tournament videogame that just may breakthrough as the harbinger of the esports phenomenon and one of the great cultural game-changers of all time.
Midnight in Anaheim. Caffeinated casters boom rapid fire commentary rattling the packed hall. Elite Starcraft players from around the globe execute complex strats that would have made Rommel the Desert Fox himself proud. 20,000 are in attendance, on the edge of their seats, and cheering as loudly as any soccer match as they watch the 30-foot screens hanging from the rafters. Another four and a half million are watching the streams live. The feeling is that of an NCAA Final Four game, set in a European soccer stadium, somehow shoehorned into a casino showroom in Las Vegas. It’s all of the skill, the fan devotion and the spectacle anyone could pos

Sheesh you guys how long has it been since my last artbook post? Seems like forever! I think before Christmas?
Well I still have lots of books that I want to share, just been too lazy. LOL.
(also - please note I'm still doing free requests as seen in the previous journal). I've only done one so far so I want to do more before postin'. C: )
Anyway - this book is made of pure awesome! And there are two more volumes besides this one! Gainax never fails to deliver some qualitayyy. I really wish I had their FLCL book with the Genga and Douga like this one. But it is SOOOO expensive and hard to find nowadays.
soooo - On to the pictures I suppose. . .
Please note that these images are LARGE. So if you aren't viewing on a huge screen, DA is probably choppin' em down.
My stock is COMPLETELY FREE now. All of it. Use it for whatever you want. Make commercial work with it, make stock with it.
I just think if you make stock with it it would be just fair if you would also offer it absolutely free
I think free stock is the best stock. I don't use any other stock

FAQI should have done this a long time ago:FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What program do you use?
Adobe Photoshop CS5
Corel Painter 11
What kind of tablet do you use?
Wacom Intuos 4
Where did you learn to draw?
I was using cheat codes from the very start - both my parents are artists + my mum was organizing weekend drawing courses in our very house. You can pretty much say I spent my whole childhood in an art school.
When I was in high school I was attending course preparing for exams into the faculty of architecture. This is the course: www.labirynt.pl
During the first and second year at the university we had some drawing/painting/sculpting lessons but they kinda sucked. Besides they were worth only 1/10th of the ECTS points you could get from pretty much any other subject so nobody gave a shit.
Will you make any tutorials?
Probably not. I don't feel competent enough.

From Myth And Legend
“The wind within the trees was a whisper that spoke our tongue, and the stars in the sky shone on the gods of our heavens, alight and alive. What is science against alchemy, we asked them, what is coincidence against prophecy? Kings and beggars stand equal as fates unfold and worlds awake, as heroes rise and deities fall… among nymphs and mermaids, against harpies and sorceries, we must stand as one. Will you brave the lands of myth and legend with us?”

Tip for Today: When to give up?Never give up just because you don't think you're good enough. We've all had our doubts in life. Successful people do not give up easily. We must prepare and prepare again, try your very hardest and then about 50% more that you didn't know you had consistently, then keep going twice as long as you ever thought you would or could. Look for more knowledge and try again.Tip for Today: When to give up?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

TO YOU ASPIRING ARTISTS...FROM JOE MADUREIRAHere's some of the most amazing and invaluable advice you'll most-likely ever get from one of my good colleagues and legends in comics/gaming, creator JOE MADUREIRA. It's what i've been preaching to you aspiring artists since i arrived on DA, but i think his POV says it perfectly:TO YOU ASPIRING ARTISTS...FROM JOE MADUREIRA2 years ago in Personal More Like This
*WARNING: SOME MATURE LANGUAGE*
"DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE A SUCCESSFUL ARTIST?
Or a successful WORKING PROFESSIONAL?
Believe it or not there is a difference. I'm not usually a soapbox type guy, I don't like instructing people, and I think I'm a terrible teacher. But hey, it's Friday and I'm in a strange mood. So here goes:
I've noticed that a good number of my fans happen to be aspiring artists themselves. This is for all you guys. I get asked constantly: "Where should I go to school?" "What classes should I take?" "What should I study for anatomy?" "What pencils and paper do you use?" "Should I be working digitally now instead of traditionally?" "How do I fix my poses? Learn composition? Perspective?" "When

My Two cents on Portfolio ReviewsYou know, I see quite a bit of portfolio on a regular basis, and even more so when I go to comic con and CTN.My Two cents on Portfolio Reviews2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This time around was the same thing, I saw quite a few portfolios. Some good ones and some that miss the mark.
There were a few in particular that caught my eye.. a few extremely good ones, and a few that just didn't work, and I wanted to try and share my opinions about portfolios in general.
This is just my point of view, based on MY experience and definitely not a definitely law, rule, or "must do". Just what I noticed in many student's and young professional's portfolios.
The first thing that strikes me is how similar portfolios can be from one student to another..I can almost always tell when one student is from Art Center, San Jose State, Otis, Sheridan or any other major school. It's a good thing and a bad thing. Mainly a bad thing though
Just a few personal thoughts on portfolios since I just came back from comic con and saw a ton over there.

I'm one of the artists who'll provide some art for the book. There are many great great artists participating in the book and I'm sure it'll be a perfect reference book for any artists, and I imagine it'll also be a nice art book for browsing for non-artists. (I was excited to see Kim Jung Gi in the list, he's so crazy talented.) I can't wait to get the book myself!
The book has reached its goal 2 and a half days after the campaign started, but there are stretch goals which will make the book even more better.
I hope you'll be interested!
