Favorite Feature New Year Special!I would like to give out a big thanks to all of you reading this, watching me and supporting me in my work. Without you I would probably still be creating, but it wouldn't be as much fun to show it up here on DA as it is today. I love reading your clever and kind comments and I'm feeling so flattered when seeing your favs on a new work! So thank you so much for that!Favorite Feature New Year Special!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would also like to say sorry for not being able to answer on everything lately, especially new watchers and favs after I got my first DD in Nov. I got totally overwhelmed with over one thousand messages!

Also, check out the one I did for groups!
Let's get started...
So, to make this unravel easily in a sensible way, I am going to approach these tips as if one was just starting here on dA. The timeline will be from opening a new account. Even if this isn't your case, look at it like we are talking about this in a Fresh Start kind of way. Some of the earlier steps may be super obvious to you guys, but bear with me!

No, I'm not being sarcastic! Haha. I don't just mean this in the obvious sense of "have a gallery" but fill it. Just remember that everything you post to your gallery represents you. Anything you post can be subjected to comments, critiques, and the occasional troll. Just have more than 5 pieces in your gallery, at least.

I'm Back!Wow.. It's still hard to believe I've been to Japan and back. From what I've heard, you're supposed to feel like the world is bigger but I feel like Japan is only a walk around the block, it seems so close! I wish I could show you guys the photos, but during the trip my phone ran out of space and so I had to start storing them on my friend's computer. I'll need him to send them to me before I can upload them, myself. So later on I will show you guys each significant step of the trip (if you'd like me to, that is.) It feels so weird to be back on my computer after nearly a whole month of being away..I'm Back!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It has been amazing, the only other country I've been to is Australia, and that's when I was 16 years old, traveling with my family. Japan is the furthest I've been from home so I got pretty homesick at times, the place was so beautiful though, I enjoyed my trip so much!

Schoolism's misson to make affordable educationhttps://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bobbychiu/schoolism-subscriptions-art-education-made-affordaSchoolism's misson to make affordable education8 months ago in Personal More Like This
10 years ago, I took on a personal mission to make art education affordable to all. I started by teaching people on the subways for free. The group was called "Bobby Chiu's Toronto Subway Sketch Group." I would do this every Sunday for 5 years straight (as long as I was in town). But after travelling extensively over those years, I realized that there are too many others that don't have access to great education.
In an ideal world it shouldn't matter where we happen to be born, how much we happen to make, or what our parents do for a living. Artists should all be able to afford the top education and we should be able to do this without taking out giant loans that take years to pay off.
All that should determine our success is how hard we work at our craft
Through Schoolism's new subscription program, we intend to make this into a reality.

Fake art by Natmorley!Hi my friends!Fake art by Natmorley!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yep, another Journal about :iconnatmorley:
This is not meant to start a witchhunt, immature harrassment on her profile won't help anything!
Regarding her latest Journal, I asked some questions.
I wonder if she'll answer any of them...Of course, she didn't answer them
So, what's the fuss about her?
Her drawings are fake, simply as that.
How could you tell?
She makes a scribbly drawing and overlays the original photo in PS to make the shading, hair etc. look better. (OR she prints out the photo and scribbles over it, whatsoever...)
You can always make out some "ghosty shadows" in her works, these are the remainings of the original photo that she just couldn't hide properly.
Is there any proof?
Here's a older drawing of her (which she already deleted ) where you can clearly
Why it's so important to unite as artists.We are with many though yet we are with few. We're all divided over little subgroups such as, fantasy illustrators, concept artists, comic book pencilers, photomanipers, techartists, anime drawers, realism sketchers etc. You might even find your place at multiple sections.Why it's so important to unite as artists.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I found that the biggest united groups on Deviant Art are mostly evolved around fan art, such as Sonic, or My little pony.
Observations aside, I think the good thing about those groups is that they serve for companionship. Being an artist all by yourself with no one to share/talk about/discuss your work with can feel rather lonely. And that lonely feeling is not encouraging at all. Most of us keep a lot of things taboo as well, like techniques or rates. If we were more openly with these the changes of being underpaid or missing out on a job because someone else does it for hardly any money at all will grow slimmer. People should know what they are worth and not be afraid to ask for it.

Ending wp journals + 200 points give awayFirst thing is that I decided to end the weekly photo journal, it was very fun to make and I'm very glad so many people liked it! But after 30 weeks I think it's time for something new, not sure what though. Anyway thanks a bunch for all the support during these weeks!

Third thing is that I'll give another 200 points (2x100 ) away to end this and start something new every week (with features), but like I said I don't know what yet.

On my birthday in October I reached a really low point of my life but believe me or not, a few hours later I did something that changed that situation completely. Since then I keep getting better, I'm so much more confident and happy. I just wanted to write about it becouse I know that a few people were seriously worried.
Sorry for not being active here, I have a few illustrations in progress and hope to share them soon, but most of my current drawings is made for work so I can't post them online.
