More on HatersThis is a copy and paste from my facebook page, but I felt it was really important to say something, and equally valid here:More on Haters2 years ago in Personal More Like This
'I HATE that trashy Image style. Hiding bad drawing with flashy technique….'
Oh boy. I'm so tired of hearing this.
The internet nearly broke yesterday with a battle (on FaceBook) around good drawing, bad drawing, technique, bad manners, being able to take criticism or not, and whether a certain artist did or didn't deserve his success, and why we hate him, or not. It was epic.
I'm not going to go into the details. It got out of hand. My toes curled when I read all the comments. My heart sank. The entire original point of the thread was buried under a mound of vitriol which, justified or not, made me a little ashamed of my industry.
Comics are not all about good drawing. I've seen plenty of Jack Kirby anatomy that aligns to reality only in the most rudimentary sense, but we all know he was great.
The so-called Image style actually evolved at Marvel - and if

HOW TO FEEL FULFILLED AS AN ARTIST"When you buy from an independent artist you are buying more than just a painting or a novel or a song. You are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation and thousands of failures. You are buying days, weeks, months, years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are buying nights of worry about paying the rent, having enough money to eat, having enough money to feed the children, the birds, ...the dog. You aren't just buying a thing - you are buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a private moment in someone's life. Most importantly, you are buying that artist more time to do something they are truly passionate about; something that makes all of the above worth the fear and doubt; something that puts the life into living." - Rebekah Joy PlettHOW TO FEEL FULFILLED AS AN ARTIST3 years ago in Personal More Like This

OBJECTIVE: SELL THIS DAMN BOOK, DANNY.
At first, Gabriel was nothing more than a character named ONE. He had no backstory, no face, nothing. I just wanted to create a character that was a badass, yet with a sense of humor.
I was inspired by such characters as Boba Fett, Wolverine, Deadpool and Clint Eastwood from The Man With No Name trilogy. I needed to create something that fit that build, however, I'll admit, it wasn't intended at first.
I uploaded him on December 8th, 2008, (which, you can find here: http://danluvisiart.deviantart.com/art/GABRIEL-107612010?q=gallery%3Adanluvisiart%2F7848546&qo=50) and he became one of the most popular characters of the series, if not, the most. Soon I started finding him on forums, websites, fashion blogs (what?), and more.
But what hit me so hard was that the majority of the comments rela

Observations of Life That May Help YouIf you are ever down, whether worried or depressed, here are some little observations I have made in my lifetime that may help you.

1) An optimist and a pessimist will always call themselves a realist. Chances are, you aren't one. So instead of worrying about something you 'know will happen', realise that whatever you think will happen isn't the only way things can end up.
2) You will never know the future (unless you're a psychic who has proven time and time again that your predictions are always true. Then that's just impressive). The past has happened, it is recorded in your memory. The present is where your feet are standing. The future is a fogged empty space. Whichever path you walk, whatever action you take, you forge a new piece of the future, one that immediately becomes the present,

Ok as you probably know already Im in Canada doing a school of Animation 2D and I will need your help since at the end of the year I need to make and present a MOVIE of more or less 2minutes (it can be between 2min to 3min30sec) depending how hard the story it is to animate.
So what Im here for is to ask your help on finding me a great story or moment or a idea! But it has to have a great story behind in which people will see it and want to see it again. That’s the idea. Its hard but I know that you guys can help me with that.
I was thinking on using different type of characters like: a normal guy (can be a fighter), a girl, a fat guy, an old guy and a little mascot\animal (for using squash and stretch and effects like fire, water or whatever). Would be great to use all these kind of characters but probably you have a better idea, and so Im available to hear what you have! Cant wait to see what you guy

A New Wind Lifts Storytelling
First imagined as a bedtime tale for his son by Kenneth Grahame in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has remained in the top twenty children’s stories ever since. But things have been getting weird out in the Willows, as the new comic on deviantART, Weirding Willows, will attest to.
Badger, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Toad are back… but they’re joined by Alice, Frankenstein’s Monster, Mowgli, The White Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as they defend the world from the Wicked Witch of the West, Doctor Moreau, the Mad Hatter, Mister Hyde and the Queen of Hearts (not to mention the flying nightmare monkeys from Wizard of Oz.)

I have always loved anthologies. Growing up in Britain 95 percent of the comics were weekly anthologies so it has been firmly ingrained in my psyche.
I've always felt that anthologies are a good platform for experimentation, trying new ideas and styles, introducing new talent and especially good to read in the bathroom. I'll never forget the impression Heavy Metal had on me when I first saw it.
They're perfect for those moments when you've read through the 100 comics you've bought that month and realized there wasn't a single complete story in the pile.
I've recently relaunched two previously successful anthologies, A1 and MONSTER MASSACRE.

My top Vocal Trance Songs (July 2012 Update)Art and Music are two of my biggest passions in life. Music is as an important part of my creative process as my camera and editing software. By nature, I am a happy and energetic person. My music of choice is Trance. Comprised of beautiful vocals and uplifting music, Trance is "my" sound. It is what sets my soul free. I don't just listen to trance, I feel it. It is actually my inspiration and my muse. It gives me a direction, sets the moods and atmosphere, giving my work a distinct sensual and sexy feel.My top Vocal Trance Songs (July 2012 Update)3 years ago in Personal More Like This

In Light of Recent Events...People have been coming to me asking me for my thoughts on this, so I'll just say it here:In Light of Recent Events...7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I can't help but feel a bit concerned for the current art community at large.
There has been a recent case of an artist that even I admire rather greatly known to be referencing and copying imagery directly without citing the source, and then using the output work for profit.
I'm not going to take any sides on any of the matter. I personally feel the proper steps are being taken on the artist's part to rectify the situation and continue on a better course. We're all human, we make mistakes, and we all deserve second chances in whatever we do, whether it's subjectively wrong or right.
But the level of passiveness as to what has been actually done is disturbing to me.
I understand supporting artists when they've been seemingly vilified by the masses of the internets, that's natural to do. And we as artists appreciate that kind of support when it happens. By the Nine, I know it has happe

'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.

When I first sold LMS to Paramount, a lot of people asked me: "How much money did you get?" "You're probably rich now, right?"
I mean, the solid gold mansion I bought was just a little gift to myself...but...
Ever since I was little, I've known I wanted to draw. From the day my parents put a pencil in my hand, this was my future. I just knew it, I had that gut feeling. So I stuck to it, and thankfully it took me to heights I'd have never imagined possible. Now with my new book Redemption heading off to studios soon for a hopeful movie package, I can't wait to see where this new road takes me.
That said, there's something else that tops all of this.

Either the guys here are young and naive --that's what I hope it is, since still being pure hearted in a time like this is good-- or they are willingly unaware of what's happening around them.
It all started with a question that came to my mind.
Would people be willing to pay a few point in exchange for a feature on a busy page?
How I got to the idea?
Well, I'm doing contests and giveaways now and then. Things for the community, you'd say. To get some feedback, feature stuff, promoting unknown artists, and that kind of stuff. In order to host those contests and giveaways I often need DeviantArt points. Now, I do get a lot of them by sheer donation. But that always seemed a bit empty to me. So I thought up some kind of idea. To give beginning artists the chance to get featured, and make use of the traffic on my page, in order to get their work viewed by people all over the website. S
