My favorite ART suppliesI get asked a lot what pens and pencils I use. So I thought I'd post an updated list of my favorites. I'm a big fan of trying new things, I'm always buying lots of different pens to try out and in my search for the best tools to use for creating comics Ive found these to work the best for my needs.My favorite ART supplies3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My number one question that others ask me is "What do you ink with?"
I use Kuretake brush pens. Here's a link to a sable hair brush pen that I love, it's the closest thing to a real brush I've used. It is pricey though. http://www.jetpens.com/Kuretake-No.-40-Fountain-Hair-Brush-Pen-Sable-Hair-Refill/pd/3958
The less expensive version is the synthetic hair, http://www.jetpens.com/Kuretake-No.-13-Fountain-Hair-Brush-Pen-Red-Body/pd/2661 this brush pen is similar to a Pentel brush pen. http://www.jetpens.com/Pentel-Pocket-Brush-Pen-for-Calligraphy/pd/1793
The cool thing about these Kuretake brush pens is the refill cartridges have nice ink in them that I use, but if you find you don't like the

Every couple of years I manage to crawl out of my dungeon and rejoin the public world for a few hours. This time around the outing was very special as I visited one of my favorite local Las Vegas comic shops. Alternate Reality Comics hosted a lovely reception for me as the feature artist of their October 2012 Artist Spotlight.

The Aud Truth of It AllLately I have been blessed with alot of new watchers here on DA and so I have thought it was time to sort of reintroduce myself to all of you so you know a bit more about me and my art. I think to know an artist's back story and interest helps to understand their art and purpose.The Aud Truth of It All3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So here is some Aud randomness.
I honestly believe in the idea of female empowerment through art. I believe that through art and through the right portryal of erotica women can finally get out from under the yoke of the social double standard on female sexuality that has existed for nearly 2000 years. I believe in taking ownership and control over my sexuality through art and conventions that I see as positive and beautiful. These photos are a true representation of the very real me.
My origin is an unlikely combination of backgrounds. I am mostly French ( My dad was 100% French) but from my mothers side I have Italian,Japanese, and even some Russian lineage. I am a true cocktail of internationalism. I r
Negative waves.A few people are whining amid the comments that I’m being negative about recent movies and video games.Negative waves.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well, kids, I’m negative about them because: they’re crap. Not in a “oh, everything was so much better in the olden days”, view-through-rose-tinted-glasses, “I don’t like new things”, luddite’s view “crap”. I mean they’re flat out sh*t.
I’ve played a hell of a lot of games and watched a hell of a lot of movies. There is quality out there in spades, all of it providing comparisons for us and benchmarks for them to aim for. The problem is that, recently, all that good seems to have been looked at…..and then studiously ignored.
THAT’s why I rage on about this stuff. That, and the apparent apathy of the collective masses who are quite happy to bend over, take the endless mediocrity and pay for the privilege.
Nothing seems to be fun anymore. I used to leave the cinema with a spring in my step, the s
This is getting ridiculous...This is getting ridiculous...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is getting ridiculous...
People have reposted my artwork five times in the last two months - some intentionally stealing and claiming as their own, others reposting, but both are against my rules and the rules of DeviantArt.
You can't miss the rules. One, you should've read them before you joined DeviantArt. Two, my rules are everywhere. And the first one?
"Please do not reupload (either as a pack or as seperate icons), claim as your own, etc."
It's driving me mad. Instead of making art for the thousands of people who do read and follow the rules, and appreciate it in the correct way by commenting, downloading and favouriting, I have to go around chasing after the handful of people who are abusing it.
I do not make my art for people to steal or leech off it. DeviantArt is not a hosting site - you can't just reupload someone else's work. It's a crime.
If you're not reading the rules or deliberately ignoring them, you're ruining it for e

dumb thought of the dayevery now and then i get these stupid ideas.dumb thought of the day3 years ago in Personal More Like This
so here is the latest one...if gravity affects time, meaning stronger the gravity, more time is affected. and if the presumption is true that strong enough gravity can stop time..within a black hole
black hole has the mass of the collapsed star.... so... just before big bang we had all the cosmos compressed in a singular point with immeasurable mass, right?
that would mean that it is a ... sort of a non state point... a non event since time is in effective stasis.. space and time compressed in a singular point.
so an event has to transpire that was superior to all those 4 dimensions....
above time and space...
either this proves there is a God... or...doctor who is actually real!!!!!
yeah.... my mind is silly like that XD
aand just a warning if you take any of this seriously.....wwwow....i... damn! XD
