HEY GUYS SUPER HUGE NEWSSINCE THE DAWN OF MY COMICS CAREER (roughly five years ago) I've amassed tons of personal comic pages. And I'm not talking about the current 216 pages of Sakana, I'm talking about ALL THE OTHER COMIC PAGES I've managed to accrue in that time.HEY GUYS SUPER HUGE NEWS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And I've been thinking for a while that I'd like to bring all those together in a big ol' fun book of stupid one-shots, minicomics, class projects, and series that never really got off the ground, or are still waiting for that fabled day far in the future where I will have the free time and financial stability to just sit down and draw every single comic I ever thought up.
SO ANYWAYS the big news is that I've begun pulling old pages out from under my bed, and leafing through my old portfolios, and scouring my external harddrive for anything that I've ever done that even resembles a comic (and some are pretty janky, lemme tell you) because I want to PUT THEM ALL IN A BIG BOOK. AND SELL IT.
If you're a fan of my webcomic Sakana, perhaps you'd like t
About RC2In a galaxy not far away, a space station was built and funded by the world’s richest man: Ronald Jackson. This project was overseen by his partner, Carter Johnas. But after Jackson’s unforeseen death, the vision and completion of the space station was pressed entirely upon Carter.About RC22 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unlike the late mogul's unrealistic and, in Carter's blunt words, “childlike dreams and piggish affairs,” Carter looks to keep the Roulette City Space Station quite the opposite of the city it was modeled after. While the tradition of the Roulette City yearly tournament shall live on in the station, Carter aims to keep the event more organized and less brutish than Jackson’s original vision. Will all this effort play out favorably? Only time and broken noses will tell.
Contestants will fight one on one each round and the last one standing in the end wins a huge cash prize and advertisement.

DA's Commissions ShopSo this is a thing! http://www.deviantart.com/commissions/DA's Commissions Shop1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So. Your friendly neighborhood Auntie Toerning is going to step in for a second here. Firstly, I think it's very groovy and awesome that DA is establishing their own marketplace. It's a scary world out there of work for hire and it's totally awesome that DA artists now have this stepping stool to practice professional habits in the same way that we practice artistic skills!
I would like to take a moment to discuss the rates here. I was just exploring quickly, and saw on the navigation on the left "price," and, like every other human on the planet, clicked on the most expensive first, thinking to myself "wow, good for DA to promote work that costs $1,000!" and wanting to see what that work would be.
Well. Boy was I wrong. In fact the prices are organized by Points. Remember when you were a kid, and the dog peed on the Monopoly box, and so you drew dollar signs on
Figure Drawing Cliff NotesMerry Christmas everyone,Figure Drawing Cliff Notes9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Looks like we'll be going into 2014 soon. I hope to learn and grow even more with everyone next year. Learning overload right now and a little overwhelmed.
CDA is out till sometime in Feb. I learned a lot from helping students and can't wait till next term starts to TA again.
Dan and I got together and discussed what we will be covering in the Cliff notes and how we are planning on showing samples
/demos. Before we officially start, we want to make sure that some of our instructors know what we are doing and get their
blessing. Yes, it sounds a little cheezy but I ( along with Dan ) feel it would be disrespectful not to do so since
we are passing on their knowledge along with our own.
Just thought I should share some concerns of students I spoke with on the last day about foundations.

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming3 years ago in Personal More Like This

EncouragementJust read a thread by LINRan. I guess people saying that he works over photos bothered him.Encouragement9 months ago in Personal More Like This
He did a comparison of the photo and the painting. Wish that kinda stuff didn't bother him to the point
that he felt he needed to do that. ( Liked seeing his process ) Personally, I think his work looks better than the photo. He 1ups it.
Goes to show you that you can't please everyone; not everyone will agree with your tastes and sensibilities. I have a
hunch that the people saying that about his work ( let's be honest ) are not very good. I've heard artists/instructors talking garbage
about Kevin and Steve when I was in school.
Like Frazetta says in his documentary about one of his paintings. ( In very intense voice) If you think you can do it better, I dare you.
Take the painting off the wall and do it.
It's good to welcome a fresh eye along with critcism. I've been blessed with having mentors and people

But last Wednesday I had to go to a lettering ceremony and my aunt brought her camera but accidentally took mine so I don't know when I'll be getting it back. For now you'll have to deal with pictures I find or awful ipod photos.
AND OF COURSE WHEN I DON'T HAVE MY CAMERA IS WHEN MY BRAIN IS EXPLODING WITH GOOD IDEAS.
But yeah, expect some uploads, because I will try my best to execute these ideas even though they may be a bit half-assed.

Yet the universe is all the same.
Forever and ever til' the process abides
Walk long and far before the darkness fades

Yet flux remains asleep.
Questions fly until you die
And the world will stay the same.
Why you should accept complimentsWHY YOU SHOULD ACCEPT COMPLIMENTSWhy you should accept compliments2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This has been bugging me for quite some time now. I've decided to compile (quite a long) post on the topic. This may still be edited, butů here's this, for now.
It is a very common trend, especially among creative people, to be at a loss as to how to handle compliments. Most people deal with this by shrinking back and getting flustered when compliments are given. People will start denying the compliment(s) and start to list the negative things about themselves, and/or start to draw comparisons between themselves and people they admire to put themselves in a bad light.
I want you to pause right there and let me say: STOP THAT. It is not a healthy attitude to have. Moreover, it's an ungratious one.
Why you should accept compliments:
1. Basic good manners.
When someone pays you a compliment, chances are that they really mean it. Believe it or not, compliments are usually delivered with good intent. You need to learn to accept
