Mermaid Obsession...I mean Feature!Hi guys!Mermaid Obsession...I mean Feature!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Most of you know I'm really into whimsical fantasy art. My favorite fantasy creature of all time is the mermaid. I've got some really awesome mermaid art tucked away in my favorites and I feel like sharing it with everyone. So I've decided to do this journal as a little tribute to mermaids and the wonderful artists who love them as much as I do! This is just a selection of all the pieces I have in my favorites. Yep, you read right...a selection. That means there's more. Yeah...I'm not obsessed...really....I'm not...ENJOY!

Starving ArtistThe Starving ArtistStarving Artist1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This topic is about rates and wages that an artist should start to consider when taking on a new job. This is my advice, so take this as advice.
So let’s begin. As an artist you should know right away that you are valuable. You can recreate people’s imagination and ideas into reality. You are the one who brings people together to be able to all see the vision for the final product. This is valuable. Keep this in mind when you take new jobs. Think about how many hours you plan on slaving over iteration after iteration. Because even though you may have a voice, if you agree to whatever the arrangement are, you must live up to their standards. So make sure you are paid well.
Imagine a client asks you to do 50 hours of work for only $500 dollars. That’s $10 an hour. That is not enough. You can go get a job that could pay you as much if not more, without being an artist. I’ve seen people’s salaries as low as 30k a year. This is not acc

Learn BlitzardiLearn Blitzardi1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I might as well do this...
Someone asked me a lot of questions about the customs and culture of the Blitzardi...well, I got one better.
Let's all learn Blitzardi.
Blitzardi itself was a language I started developing in Junior High while helping one of my good friends with her French homework. Though my French sucks.
Mostly because I only know a few phrases because my mother knows French. Spanish is my stronger second language.
Yeah, I learned Spanish, my mother...French. And then my good friend from Argentina who spoke Spanish...was also learning French.
So, I started basing Blitzardi off of a very bad mixture of the various Romance Languages.
How to speak it...it's similar to how one would phonetically speak Italian and Latin.
It's liquid, smooth, but forcefully bouncy.
Just imagine a Blitzardi sitting down and dipping pasta into wine while calling for garlic bread and you'll get an idea of their basic accent.
So, let's have fun with thi

One thousand years ago…
Well more like 20 years ago Disney’s animated series Gargoyles hit the airwaves and captivated the hearts and minds of youngsters across the globe.

They meet and befriend NYPD detective Elisa Maza who helps them adapt to the new world th

I'm trying to promote my art project called Caldyra. It's not easy though, especially on Facebook where everything gets filtered now a days...
If you're interested in the project, visit the page and click like to follow it. In return I will feature you and some of your best artworks in my journal.
(Send me a message if you'd liked the page with your name and with the artwork you'd like to have featured, up to 3 pieces.)
If you're not interested in this art project, no worries, simply don't like it, I don't want non-genuine likes.
A bit about the book:
Caldyra will be an Artbook planned to be finished (and kickstarted?) by the end of August this year.
I've quit my studio job as a concept artist so I would have more time for the book. I've got 2 great artists working on this alongside me.

How to draw during 365 daysHow to draw during 365 days7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
By the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.
I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey.
It's okay to start simple!
My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!
Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings?

Contest Theme: Seisui Naito
This contest is dedicated to the first OC that I ever created, Seisui Naito. The Captain of my 11th Division alternate-universe of Bleach, he was one of the things that brought me to this website so many years ago. Without him, I would never have started my project. I owe him so much. He brought me here, helped me kick of a universe of writing that would see my skills improve over years, and introduced me to friends from around the world. I figure it's time to pay him back.

Cthulhu is Still Calling
Written By techgnotic
Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq
Malygos and NeltharionSo let's talk about these two for a moment.Malygos and Neltharion1 year ago in Personal More Like This
From what I've ever gotten about Malygos and Neltharion is that it seemed theirs was pretty much an undying friendship that well, ended in great tragedy.
Yeah. That would do it.
I'm gonna try to do this Alphabetically with describing Malygos and Neltharion. Go into a little history of them and such. Mostly it has to do with the headcanon and not the actual canon. But I will say this, between the headcanon and the actual canon, not much different has been done between them. Pretty much, everything happens as it should with only one minor or major difference.
So, let's get to the minor difference first.
In my Headcanon, and this is based off of the actual canon prior to...
Let's just get this bit out of the way.
In the original canon before Knaak changed it, the Aspects were created by the Titans from the bits and pieces of Galakrond. So, in the headcanon, it is assumed that the Titans were the ones who slew Galakro

What are your biggest pet peeves in art?So, I thought it might be fun to talk about random things you hate that other artists do. And I'm not talking about really broad things like "I hate furry artists" or "I hate when people draw MLP fanart" but little things that bug you. You know, stuff that's mor particular to you, like "I hate when people put human eyebrows on dogs" or something weird like that.

And first, I'll point of one of mine. :3
I HATE when people draw animals "kissing." >C It's dumb. Dumb dumb dumb dumb.... dumb. And it just looks stupid too because animals don't do that. Most animals aren't even physically capable of making that kind of motion with their mouths. (Especially when people draw animals like wolves or dragons kissing. Blech.) Every time I see someone draw this, it makes me sad inside. >_

The recently announced changes to the core mythos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the backlash from fans over the ending to Mass Effect 3 have ignited an incredible discussion about the rapidly evolving “collaborative” relationship between producers and consumers of videogames, movies, and similar “products.” Now it’s exploded beyond the secure borders of top news publications, gamin
Coloring Old Pages right out of Comic tutorialColoring Old Pages right out of Comic tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
After posting a double page spread out of one of my favorite Comics growing up people asked me how I did it.
Here's a overview of what I did and what it takes to recolor something right out of a book.
The Original Book is the Classic Wolverine by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller. In my opinion one of the best Wolverine stories ever and one of the reasons I wanted to make comics when I was a kid.
scan or take a picture
I don't have a scanner anymore but I do have a pretty decent DSLR (Nikon 7000). I actually would use a DSLR shooting in Raw rather then scan an old book. I can do a lot of corrections in Camera Raw before I even open it in photoshop but you could do all of it in PSD as well. When bringing it in Camera raw I just set the megapixel to the largest possible and at 600 dpi.
