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 2012.2 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
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 NEON1 year 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 september7 months 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...
Thor: The Dark WorldA quick, spoiler-free review: it's goooooood.Thor: The Dark World4 months 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

Pairing Challenge: BoxshippingAnother pairing challenge by :iconQueenBrittStalin:Pairing Challenge: Boxshipping7 months 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

ARTGERMINATION - My Digital Art ChatroomARTGERMINATION - My Digital Art Chatroom2 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

Nintendo announces Pokemon RainbowNintendo just announced the third Pokemon Black and White game, its gonna be called... POKEMON RAINBOW! YEAH BOI!! I thought they ran out of colors for the Pokemon games but the smart people at Nintendo got some creative guys together and did an awesome looking cover for the game. Rumours has it that Rainbow will be the most open minded game up to date, you know how Pokemon Black and White was all about right and wrong, good and evil, yin and yang, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones that kind thing? Well Pokemin Rainbow totally gets rid of that, everyone is treated equally and happiness is the only thing that matters. Recreational drugs and casual sex is also highly encouraged, you can dress up your Pokemon however way you want without anyone judging you (As you can clearly see in the cover). Unfortunately this can be quite controversial to the general public... but hey I appreciate Pokemon thinking ahead and having a modern mindset.

sorry for kiriban winner, you will be featured soon, I did not forget you I just write some sad journals and my mood is far from nice, so this is not the best time for kiriban.
By the way, there is a new one: send me a printscreen of 1 022 222 pageviews and you will win a feature (no feature for porn or animal cruelty, ok).
Well, I have news about wolves, as I have promised to keep you informed.
If you do not know what I speak about, check this journal, please!
Two ZOO Brno's employees answered my question about wolves and one of them was a zoologist, so I think we can consider that reply trustworthy.
So: as you probably already know, my beloved Atila, famous alpha wolf from ZOO Brno, died. He died of old age (10 years). His death is the cause of the current bad state of other wolves. The death of the alpha is followed with a lot of stress, as the hierarchy of the pack is completely crushed and in terrible mess.
The ZOO repeatedly applied te
Back from RysolationDear Ryceballs. I have returned. It was a short hiatus, but it was a necessary one. I traveled miles and miles on foot into the Indian Desert by myself, in hope that I would be able to find my missing soul, cos thats what people do when they wanna find their soul right? They always go to India. I called it my 'rysolation period'. So I was out soul searching. On my journey, people has been encouraging to me, giving me kind words and needed motivational speeches, I thank you, you know who you are. I think I am more collected and positive now. Yeah I think I am back. Oh also on my soul search I have had time to work out some 'things'. So yeah look forward to more 'things' from me in the future. The desert was hot as hell by the way, don't really recommend it, what my soul was doing there is beyond me.Back from Rysolation5 months ago in Personal More Like This

Whiskey Cake and NonsenseSo today, I went out with friends. REAL FRIENDS!! I have real friends in real life! It was one of my best friends' (I have best friends too) birthday party and we went to eat at TGI Fridays. YUM. Anyway, I had a hamburger and for dessert (I remember how to spell dessert (used to get it mixed up with desert) because my dad told me that dessert has TWO Ss because you always want more dessert), I had WHISKEY CAKE. I can't for the life of me remember the full name, all I remember is that it was WHISKEY cake. Really though the cake is pretty non-alcoholic for those of you who don't know. I'm not 21 yet and would not be allowed to eat such a thing as alcoholic cake. But the idea does sound pretty awesome. Anyway, it was really freaking delicious.Whiskey Cake and Nonsense1 year ago in Personal More Like This

A day of doing nothingHey Ryceballs. yesterday marked the day that I did absolutely nothing. I gota admit, the last 2 weeks has been one of my most crazy weeks of the year, there were just tooooo many things going on at the same time that has affected my emotional state. It was like an emotional roller coaster that just didn't end. Not just bad things don't get me wrong, but good things too. And being a guy who try to take as little rest as possible, I came to a point where I just got totally burnt out. I was just exhausted and tired and just felt extremely depressed. It has affected my judgement and logical thinking and it even shows in my polls to be honest, I don't know if people realise but sometimes the topic of the polls and quality of my artworks are affected by what's going on in my life.. but sometimes I throw in a few odd ball polls in there to mix it up so you guys don't think I am personally going through stress, so yeah 'poo flavoured icecream' isnt a thing from experience don't worry!

Being gay never hurt anybody. However hate and prejudice against someone based on their sexuality most certainly does hurt people. Judging someone solely by whom they choose to love is just as stupid as, oh say, judging someone on the color of their skin. And we're better than that.
Or are we...?
