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!!!!1 year 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 July2 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!

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.

The contest is to whip up your best (you guessed it) Tokyo piece!!! Do a ninja piece or do a sexy piece(pg13), do whatever you want to do but just don't do nothing!

So...lets get down to the details!

Sexism in game arttumblrSexism in game art1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Before you start reading my journal, I want to let you know a few things.
My examples about sexism mostly based on my own personal experience, but not all of them. Still I'm going to use myself and my own works to represent certain cases and explain my point of view without unnecessarily involving somebody else.
Also I'm not going to write about the problem of sexism in game art here , I chose the title to fool you and make you read the important things I want to say about another problem starting with sexism in game art and art in general.
Now you are prepared so we shall begin.
Either we want it or not, this topic became a kind of fashion and is everywhere, you don't need to actually look for it, it will find you. You will see it, you will hear about it, you will experience it, and you will form an opinion about it. As a woman I experience sexism on a daily level, and I'm not thinking about small th

What program do you use?

What kind of tablet do you use?

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.

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!
Morrowind FeatureMorrowind Feature2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls III Morrowind is my favourite game of all time, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. I've been planning for awhile to put together a game-inspired feature; unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since most Morrowind-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
For those unfamiliar with the game, Morrowind is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2002. The central plot concerns the deity Dagoth Ur, housed within the volcanic Red Mountain, who seeks to gain power and break Morrowind free from Imperial reign. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are detailed discursive quests for a variety of factions, including various guilds, religious organizations, and aristocratic houses.
Lord Voryn Dagoth had been a good friend of Lord Indoril Nerevar, but they tu

It sits atop my list of Desert Island Discs because the Capital Wasteland is simply one of the most engaging virtual environments thus far created, and within which; exploration is rewarded. Very few games actually let you do what you want. They claim to, but in actual fact; just lead you 'round by the nose or provide you "hints" that both insult your intelligence and ruin the atmosphere.
Fallout 3 leaves you alone to enjoy its irradiated wonderland at your leisure. Uncovering the mythology for yourself by sifting through the remains of the obliterated DC area.
You'd think then, with my obvious love of such games, that I would have picked up a copy of Skyrim. Maybe even two. One to play and one to caress gently during the loading screens.
Well; no. I haven't, and won't for some time.

After getting out of a slump, I wanted to share this story of something I went through a few years back. Bit of a read, but thanks for sticking through it
As you know, Comic-Con is arriving and as I prepare for it, I grow more and more anticipated with anxiety/joy in regards to the re-release of Last Man Standing.
As long, challenging, and mind-opening the creation of LMS was, something really stuck with me.
Before I had created LMS, I wanted to work for WETA Workshop. To those that don't know them, they've created props, designs, sets, costumes, and more for The Lord of the Rings, Avatar, District-9, Elysium, The Hobbit and many more films.
I was obsessed and inspired with them. The creator, Richard Taylor was always a huge inspiration to me. After viewing supplements on the Extended Editions of The Lord of the Rings DVDS, I knew right there: I HAD TO WORK FOR THEM.
