I'm going to provide all these Answer and more here, so listen up.
1.The most commonly asked question is "How did you learn how to draw"
I get asked this question a ton and my answer is pretty much the same every time. "PRACTICE!!!" I cannot stress this enough, but you have to practice. You will only get out of it what you put into it. How good do You want to be?
Truthfully thats up to you.
I've put in a good 15 years of drawing almost everyday. I've wanted to be a comic artist more than anything. I WANTED IT! And now I'm doing it. But I had to work at it. I didn't just wake up one day an

Creator Owned Day is 1st March 2012.The challenge:Creator Owned Day is 1st March 2012.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Create a sketch of an original character or concept and and post it on your blog Thurday 1st March. It should be a concept completely owned by the artist (or co-owned with the writer/collaborators permission to post).
Why? A number of reasons:
1. A lot of reader and creator focus is on characters owned by larger corporations. Let's bring a little spotlight on creating brand new, creator owned concepts.
2. Bringing a little awareness to the business side of co-creating original content. Take a look at Jeff Parker's article and follow up comments on the subject. Co-creators can take this opportunity as a little trial run, just make sure to have a mutual agreement in advance.
3. Fun! A few creators discussed the idea on Twitter and thought it was a great opportunity to create something entirely new, while bringing attention to these sketches.
1. Create an sketch of a new character/character you own. We're doing this primarily to get our imaginations running, so
The Walking Dead comicsDo you feel cosy and comfortable sitting where you're sitting now?The Walking Dead comics2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Let's ruin it.
Despite being a story of people who usually make it, The Walking Dead comics aren't that positively oriented. What's positive about a world full of mindless brain-eating zombies with very few living healthy humans left? (Don't answer, I know that for some of you it's a paradise). Come and take a closer look at these comics from a diffrent way than usual.
The basics. The Walking Dead is a black and white monthly comic book series, written by Robert Kirkman and brought to its visual life by Tony Moore. These two guys are the creators of the serie, however, Tony Moore was replaced from issue #7 by Charlie Adlard (which didn't stop him from making the covers through issue #24). And, of course, there's also Cliff Rathburn, who's
Double Dragon NEONHi there guys! As maybe you know Double Dragon NEON was released the last week! and whoa! It was an incredible project! I´ve got several notes and emails asking if I was involved in the game: "billy and Jimmy looks like your charas", "the girls!", etc... so, yes! I worked in chara design and concept art. Was really an honor not only to be part of a franchise that I love like Double Dragon (as a kid, I spent hours playing the original game on arcades and then withe the NES version) but also to work with one of the game developers I deeply admire like Wayforward in this love letter to the 80´s. You can play it right now in your Xbox 360 and PS3!!! I hope you like it! I love brawlers! hope to upload some of the images soon tooDouble Dragon NEON2 years ago in Personal More Like This

ravine issue 2 is out in septembershould ave been august, but some unexpected problems popped out ...i hate unexpected problems....ravine issue 2 is out in september1 year ago in Personal More Like This
cause..yknow..expected ones are just friggin awesome XD
anyhoo issue 1 will be reprinted too and available.
about the books themselves. each issue is a 160 page graphic novel. of that book 1 is 120 pages of comic, and 40 pages of bonus world material. sort of an encyclopaedic, not necessary, but tasty fluff,
book 2 is 135 pages of comic and 25 pages of fluffy side stuff
series itself will consist of 12 books. so by is end it will be about 1500 pages of one single fantasy tale
early previews for boo 2 are here, and soon the ones with final text and lettering will be shown, online so i will link those when they are up
books are available for preorder through amazon , and pretty much any comic book store or top cow.

We never thought DC had the balls to do it. We longed for this to happen for years. And Geoff Johns confirms it IS happening.

We can only hope now the writing matches the beauty of the art and it is NOT a gimmick! Action 600 do leave us a bit cynical. Here's hoping...
Pairing Challenge: BoxshippingAnother pairing challenge by :iconQueenBrittStalin:Pairing Challenge: Boxshipping1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Boxshipping is the name of the pairing between Mokuba Kaiba and Anzu Mazaki (Tea Gardner) from Yu-Gi-Oh.
It is not a really popular pairing but it would be rather sweet if that happened mostly because Mokuba is a twelve year-old boy and Anzu is sixteen... Apparently a love between them would be sweet. Both of them seem rather naive for this kind of feelings and both of them would shy away... Just the sight of both of them being at each other's side blushing is the cute one. Anyway. Mokuba is acting far more mature than his age mostly because of the things he had been through in his life. Even if he is a little child, he still acts in a rather protective way and sure he would be really loyal to her and always there for her. Anzu on the other han could offer him the affection and the childhood he didn't have the chance to have. Maybe some kind of innocent love could grow between them since Anzu and Mokuba trust each other and they tried
Thor: The Dark WorldA quick, spoiler-free review: it's goooooood.Thor: The Dark World1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'd actually say that it's the best paced super-hero flick since the first Iron Man film.
Incredible Hulk fizzled in the third act.
Iron Man 2 saw every character turn either really wet or go full retard.
Thor felt a bit like a plodding, 80s, movie-with-a-message.
Captain America just felt like an extended prologue for The Avengers.
The Avengers didn't really get going until the finale.
And Iron Man 3 occupies a middle ground between Iron Man and Iron Man 2.
I'm certainly not saying any of those films were bad, it's just they felt saggy in areas.
Thor: The Dark World has a perfect pace. It's engaging right from the get-go and doesn't trip up once (that I noticed).
It is part of the Marvel cinematic series, though, so there are many, many nods and references to previous films (one of Loki's disguises is brilliant), which may leave newcomers lost.
And, of course, if

ARTGERMINATION - My Digital Art ChatroomARTGERMINATION - My Digital Art Chatroom3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many people has asked me about the rationale behind my nickname - Artgerm in many occasions. To me it is more than just a nick, it is actually my mission statement in my art journey, which I would like to see people get "infected" by my works and inspire them to create art. I've been drawing for the past 20 years, in which 16 years in digital medium. Art has already been part of my life long time ago - it is my passion, my profession and my life. Although majority of my time has been devoted to the commercial projects and my family and leave me very little time to impart my art knowledge to others outside of my studio, my mission statement has never and will never change.
As a result, I've decided to setup a deviantArt chatroom recently called Artgermination for all digital art discussions, which I put in a good amount of my time daily to interact with other dA members, sharing with them my journey in art and con

Zeviant FartThere's nothing more I can add to the debate/communal rant currently taking place that has not already been said, other than repeat my opinion that, if something requires explanation, it's not art.

Flatline.I’m not gonna lie. The 8th series of the revived Doctor Who has, so far, been a steaming pile of crap. Not through any fault of the actors. Capaldi is brilliant as The Doctor. It’s just the stories have been incredibly poor. It was like Russell T Davis had returned to the writing duties.Flatline.2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Things brightened up a bit last week with “Mummy on the Orient Express”, which would have been great had the titular express been the ACTUAL express rather than an entirely unnecessary futuristic version travelling through deep space.
Tonight’s episode, “Flatline”, by comparison to the eight episodes that preceded it, was a work of goddamn art. Brilliant! Utterly brilliant! It’s unfathomable as to how all the other trashy stories were greenlit when this gem of a tale was also in the mix.
I shan’t say anything more, and I urge people not to post any spoilers, but it is without a doubt this series’ “Blink”. It's worth wading through

I've just been busy talking to the Docs and I also recieved a new scan this week. They wanted to see how I've healed and check for any new growths. The good news is that I'm clear and the spots they operated look good overall. They did say that I have two spots on my liver that they will be watching, there not sure what they are yet, but my scans down the road will help determine that if they do start going, but they could just end up being tissue on the liver.
I also finally found out about the chemo. I had been waiting on that news. It's been approved and I should start it next week. The good news it won't be as long as the last dose I recieved, which was 5 days a week and 6hrs a day. Which is good news. Since I'm taking the chemo to preven
ManipulateshippingA challenge from my friend :iconGrace0331: for ManipulateshippingManipulateshipping2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Manipulateshipping is the pairing of Marik Ishtar with Anzu Mazaki / Tea Gardner from Yu-Gi-Oh! It is called like this because Anzu was manipulated by Marik and his Millenium Rod.
I believe that it is a pairing really interesting and nice. Marik had spent a life underground with no friends and he only had his family. The only feeling that appeared that had leant him breathe was hate! He hated his father for doing what he did to him (craving on his back the hieroglyphics using burning knife!), he hated the Pharaoh (because it was his memory and secrets who was protecting) he even almost hated Rishid/Odion for not taking the ritual for him. He spent his life being the head of a stealing organization and his hatred even leaded him to create a dark personality that killed his own father! In general he didn't meet affection in his life except his brother and sister since his father was too cruel and the only thing he cared of

Since my last update, I went through two chemo sessions so far. They are Mon thru Friday and last 6hrs a day. I just finished up my latest week and I'm in recovery right now. Just getting back into it and fighting the heavy nausea. Ive been through it before and each day it gets better as I fight the fatigue and the nausea.
As for the chemo, it's the roughest they can give me according to the Doc, which is fine, especially if it can win the battle for me like it did the last time in my previous battles with this cancer. The Tumor count for me right now is at 8 and the Doc is looking into me getting a new PET Scan maybe next week to see if the chemo has shrunk any of them so far. If so, I'll then continue my rounds of the chemo and then prepare for the radi
