Didja like EMPOWERED vol.7?(SPOILER ALERT!)Thought I'd post a journal for any deviantART readers wanting to weigh in on Empowered vol. 7, the latest installment of my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy" series published by Dark Horse Comics, on sale as of today. More info here: http://www.darkhorse.com/Books/18-058/Empowered-Volume-7-TPBDidja like EMPOWERED vol.7?(SPOILER ALERT!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyhoo, feel free to post your opinion here in the comments, which will hereafter be SPOILER ALERT Central for anyone who's not yet read the book; beware, virgin readers! (No, wait, that sounds bad...)
Side note: Despite an exhaustive corrections process, several maddening typos still snuck their way into Empowered vol. 7's 224 pages (just like the ninja who are the books' subjects, come to think of it). Example: My apologies in advance for the inexplicable, uh, "misspelling" of the Japanese kana for "Ikuzo!" during one of the two times it appears in the book.
And now, the mandatory floggery:
Art TradesOk, so, I saw this idea and thought it might be a good way to get me motivated for arts again. See, I learned something about myself. Unless I have a clear plan for one my characters or there's someone waiting on something, I tend to slack on the art front because I get so many ideas and just feel swamped. I also really need to work on doing ink lines by hand and finding a pen that I think works well with it. So to kill two birds with one stone, I'm going to offer art trades! The catch is, you'll need to finish yours first.Art Trades2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1: Look at the list below and pick a character you'd like to draw, and get crackin! It can be any of the characters there, or if I've missed one of mine that you like a lot, that's fine too. Basicly, any in this folder are fair game.
2: Draw that character in your favorite medium. Which means hand-drawn, CG, detailed sketch, pixel, etc. Hell, i
Stockers I Hate, Feature EditionSo, the stock community has grown and improved so much since I first started producing stock, and there are so many stockers whose stock I love.Stockers I Hate, Feature Edition2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
These aren't them. The stockers featured here are the people whose stock is so good, that I hate them out of pure jealousy. They tend to be people with resources or abilities beyond the scope of my own, and much the same taste. I'm only featuring stockers that primarily produce male stock, because that's what Ari and I do. If I featured female stockers I envied as well, we'd be here all year.
The first that has to be mentioned, of course, is jademacalla. I've hated him from day one, in a good way. His stock is awesome, and often makes me think "That must be uncomfortable."
In the vein of obnoxiously athletic stockers, I'd be wrong not to mention DaeStock, 'cuz, well, Duuuuuude. If you're looking for epic displays of male physicality, he's the stocker for you.
I also hate (in the good way) Nemesis-19 Not all of his stock is up my

deviantART has given me the opportunity to perform two Community Volunteer positions here:
I am the Science Fiction and Space Art Community Volunteer.
I am also now the new 3 Dimensional Art Community Volunteer.
One of the duties of these positions is that I can feature artwork from these categories as Daily Deviations.
I browse through these categories daily in search of deviations to feature as Daily Deviations.
This feature is to help the artist and their work gain more exposure, and it's genre and/or medium gains more community awareness as well.
But I need your help.
Have you seen a work of art here on deviantART which you have found so impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large?
Do you know an artist of whom deserves much more exposure?
Would you like to put a smile on someones face and make their
Life at the moment -Last night Israel agreed and signed on a humanity ceasefire, which earlier today was even extended until 00:00 tonight. Yet even still, just now, Sunday morning here in Israel, Hamas has broken the ceasefire by shooting more missiles towards us. I can not tell you how terrifying the situation is for someone who actually live in this situation for 20 days of war, and more so, for years upon years of living under the constant threat of Hamas missiles (more than 12,000 rockets were shot towards Israel in the last 12 years!). At the same time I cannot explain to you the sadness I feel towards innocent civilians in Gaza who also live under the terror regime of Hamas, who constantly and deliberately using them as a human-shield and as leverage for its own propaganda!Life at the moment -1 year ago in Personal More Like This

My legs are sore from walking about 2,000 miles yesterday and my feet already hurt. I love it.
This morning, after crashing a little after 2AM, we got up at 6:30AM to catch the bullet train to Osaka. The train stops several times, so it doesn't always get up to the incredible speeds other ones do. We'll be on one this Sunday that tops out at about 180MPH! It's hard to describe the funny experiences one has on the subways and trains. The crazy visuals of passing another train going the opposite direction when you are only a foot or so apart. Ah these Japanese are so precise. The trains displace so much air that when we

Every once in awhile, I come across a picture that takes my breath away. My DeviantART page has been kinda bland recently, so I thought it would be cool to dedicate a section of it to feature these awesome pics. You'll find it under a section called Awesome Pic of the Day. It's much easier and quicker to post these, and I'll try to keep it updated daily or as close to it as I can get. If you think it's a good idea, let me know, and I'll keep it around. I'll archive the history of pictures in this journal entry.

Tips for Starting Commissions I was thinking about my last journal, where I asked why everyone and their cat wanted to sell commissions so badly. I recieved some really insightful answers.Tips for Starting Commissions1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I also had a lot of people asking me "How much should I charge for my work?"
I'll add a Disclaimer right here in front, as for whatever reason, something always offends someone :iconstunplz: . So I'll start off by saying, this is just my personal journal, and I'm just one person who has some experience with this. I'm not making a judgment on who should sell what, just writing some things I have personally learned along the way.
Well that's out of the way :iconyodawgplz:
So most artists starting off go through a period of confusion on how to price work. They get a lot of suggestions, or theories from well-meaning people such as:
"Artists always undervalue themselves. Don't charge less than minimum wage per hour"
This is true, and I agree. However, unfortunately,
Got a question for EMPOWERED's Ninjette?As I've frequently mentioned on previous art posts, May 30th sees the release of Empowered vol. 7, the latest installment of my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy" series published by Dark Horse Comics.

In a flailing, desperate attempt to help promote the book's release, I'm about to draw a short comic storybetween 4-6 pages long, probablyin which a character from the Empowered cast answers questions from the audience. Here are a few pages from my previous (2010) stab at such metatextual shenanigans, with protagonist Emp fielding questions supplied by deviantART members:
Well, once again, I'm soliciting your questions for an Empowered cast member, this time for Ninjette, aka Kozue Kaburagi, who plays an especially important role in vol. 7. Dunno how many questions
Ripper StreetThe, surprisingly good, Ripper Street returned to begin its second series last night.Ripper Street2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When it first showed up last year, I believed it was shamelessly riding on the success of the Sherlock Holmes movies. Watch the opening credits and you'll understand why:
However, while those that made the opening are obviously Robert Downey Jr fans, the writers of the series are more interested in telling their own stories.
Ripper Street is a very, very good crime drama, and seems to have production values on par with the genre behemoths produced over in America.
It's set in late 19th century London and follows a trio of lawmen from Whitechapel's H Division: the well-to-do Detective Inspector Reid, his right-hand man Detective Sergeant Drake and a rogue Pinkerton agent, Captain Jackson.
Despite the title, this series is not about chasing Jack the Ripper. They did something far more interesting with the legend in using the panic that it created as a backdrop.
'For exposure' - a warning to artistsI ran into this Twitter page a few days ago. It's a collection of real comments that artists get all the time asking them to work for free, or, as these people often prefer to say, "for exposure".'For exposure' - a warning to artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This
People like this are usually trying to guilt-trip artists into taking on massive projects for no pay, claiming it'll be good advertisement or that they'll get paid once the project becomes a success. The truth is, the chances of getting picked up by a major studio are extremely small. The so-called free advertisement the artist may or may not end up getting is usually not worth the effort.
Just to give you a taste of the disrespect for an artist's time and energy that some people have, here's a choice quote:
"Need Animator-I have a story that's 4 seasons long, 10 episodes each. looking for maximum quality. No pay. I will warn that I am very picky"
Does this person even realize the amount of work that goes into animation? Depending on the
Instruction manualSo I bought a cheapo bluetooth headset. Some of the Engrish in the microscopic instruction manual is quite memorable.Instruction manual4 months ago in Personal More Like This
"Do not put the headphones on the position of car airbags, because when Ann The full airbag may cause serious injury." -- Well I'm not in the habit of naming the airbags on my car but I suppose if I had one named Ann I'd definitely avoid giving her one of these. Airbags can get quite violent if provoked, after all. Ann must have some serious anger-management issues.
"Do not let children play with the headset, small parts may make children smothering interest dangerous." -- This is either a small parts warning, or these headsets will cause children to develop an asphyxiation fetish later in life. I'm not sure which.
"Before boarding the headset turned off, the aircraft cannot use the headset." -- Well yes, there's no way the average plane could use anything this tiny without help, and it would be a hug

Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
A: Heart only good for so many beats, and that it... Don't waste on exercise. Everything wear out eventually. Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster. Want to live longer? Take nap.
Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: Oh no. Wine made from fruit. Fruit very good. Brandy distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way. Beer also made of grain. Grain good too. Bottom up!
Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?

Cinder is coming to Doctor Who: Legacy!So it was announced today that the War Doctor's companion Cinder (from George Mann's novel "Engines of War") is being added to the Doctor Who: Legacy game, and yes- she will be in the same style as the design I cooked up a while back with George's input:Cinder is coming to Doctor Who: Legacy!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Obviously, we have to make a few alterations since the original was based on Hayley Williams (we never dreamed that this design would get fast-tracked for officialdom). But I can promise that "Cinder 2.0" will still be mostly the same and just as badass (and most importantly, still have a gun made out of dead Dalek parts). The legacy folks have been very cool to work with, and I'm hoping we'll be working together on some more stuff soon.
Also- you gotta see this wicked Cinder fan art by Paul Cooke. Beautiful stuff:
