Art theft in Steam / Counter-StrikeUPDATE: SIC (the other half of this collaborative gun skin design) has contacted me, saying that he was unaware that this canine piece was copyrighted to me. I don't blame him for this unfortunate event. We're currently working on to solve this, in the best case the Howl items on Steam will not be removed.Art theft in Steam / Counter-Strike2 months ago in Personal More Like This

Someone has stolen one of my artworks to make a custom skin for a gun in a game called Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

A few words on punk vs. steampunk.Never Mind The BollocksA few words on punk vs. steampunk.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Or: How Spec-Lit Fucked Up A Perfectly Good Word.
Punk 'til you puke!
As a youth revolution punk was a solid fist full of fuck you! An angry, ugly, straight razor attack on the bloated excess of 1970's pop culture.
There was punk rock music from the likes of The Sex Pistols, Black Flag, and The Dead Kennedys.
There was punk cinema in films such as Repoman, Suburbia, and The Fabulous Stains.
There was punk lit, punk art, even a punk offshoot of gonzo journalism.
It was a way of life fueled by a belief that nothing is sacred, authority is never to be trusted, and most importantly, you can always Do It Yourself...better known as the DIY ethos.
In a word, punk is rebellion.
And I know a bit about words. Word have power. Word have strength. Words are the bits of

Just want to say thanks again to all the people who have written stories and drawn fanart for my characters. Most of you are aware of all the fanfics that are there as I update drawings with links to them and I make cover art for them. (I've also made a folder in my gallery for drawings with stories to go with them in case you didn't see.) If you want to see all the fanfics on FIM I'd like to let you know that there is a group made by Equestrian Riders there: http://www.fimfiction.net/group/201922/kilala97-fan-works. It also has all updated information and bios of my characters. It's SOOOOO much more organized than my gallery and I'm very thankful for it So the fanfics as you can see get plenty of attention but there is also some WONDERFUL fanart. This is where all of them are: http://kilala97.deviantart.com/favourites/58290287

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

Free adviceSomeone recently asked me for some advice about going to art college and becoming an illustrator. Here's what I said. Maybe someone here will find this interesting too...Free advice2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) It's a tough life as an artist. You need more than just good drawing abilities to get by. I know a lot of people who are WAY better than me but can't make it as artists. You need to be personable and likable. Work on your people skills and be sincere. People can tell when it's fake.
2) Learn a broad range of skills. Don't just focus on illustration, but also learn the fundamentals of design, sculpture, painting, storyboarding, etc... those skill will help you more than you can possibly imagine.
3) Be yourself. Find your own style and really refine it.
4) Don't waste your education. Don't go out and party and drink when you should be studying and doing homework. They give you that homework for a reason!
5) Always try to be the best. Challenge yourself to make your assignments the best in your class. Always try to be

A new start. =3For these past five years, I have been making a crap ton of art on this profile. Starting from fetish pictures, moving on towards video game comics/jokes, and so on. It was a good run, but lately I haven't been very pleased with the way my art has been turning out. Lately I have had this desire to make my own stuff, and to develop my own characters. I want to expand my artistic horizons as much as I can, and I feel that for that to happen, I will need a new start...A new start. =33 years ago in Personal More Like This

Fluttershy's Tearful Plea For HelpFluttershy's Tearful Plea For Help2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Fluttershy is crying. Why? Because she just listened to a heartbreaking story of a very talented person here on dA. The story of Sahtori-Kamaya (Karine Coenen) has been going around the fandom for a while now and some or most of you have probably heard about Karine before. For those of you who don’t know, Karine is very ill with cancer and she will be dead before next summer.
Fluttershy sends out this plea to all who care enough to listen to Karine’s story. Listen to Karine’s new video below and take to heart the message that the Sahtori-Kamaya has for all of us.
Karine Coenen mentions in one of her DeviantArt journals how, despite universal healthcare in Belgium, her insurer seems to be able to legally withhold treatment for her just because she is behind on her payments. Even employers reject her because of her disease, and she can’t expect any help from

FAQ! Finally!Hello everybody!FAQ! Finally!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been getting an increase in notes and messages lately asking all kinds of things. Problem is, I'm far from having the time to answer all these questions individually (even if I did have it it would probably make more sense to spend it drawing), but I don't want to leave them unanswered either since I appreciate everyone's feedback a lot. So I decided to make a kind of FAQ, since I'm mostly being asked the same things over and over.
I'll try to group these semantically so reading though them makes a bit of sense.
Did you ever do any tutorials?
- Yes, I spent a lot of time on this one:
There's a lot of explaining in there, so please before you ask anything technique or learning related, read it thoroughly first.

To summarize: The 2014 Limited Edition Yaya Han Calendar features 12 months of new cosplay images printed on glossy 11x17 paper, which flips open to a 11x24 calendar. Out of the 12 monthly images, only 2 have been released before, all others are brand new and shot exclusively for the calendar. None of the images will be available as a print or poster, you will only be able to see them in the calendar.
