TAURUS: Beautiful Bons Vivants
Zodiac Sign Taurus
The concept of Astrology or “study of the stars” has been around since the ancient world and can be traced as far back as the first dynasty of Mesopotamia.
For some, the stars are a portent of the future that can and help inform you of the best course of action to take based on their alignment. If born under a specific “star” or month during the year you may have certain characteristics and mannerisms that correspond to a

Order online or pick up a copy in person THIS WEEKEND at Wondercon in Anaheim. Artist Alley - table 146
Before he was the Devil, He was Lucifer Morningstar. Brightest of all the Archangels, Marshall of Heaven. This is the story of his Fall.
At the dawn of creation, existence was a raw, untamed frontier. Seven gunfighting Archangels defended the town folk of Heaven from Daemons, primordial beasts dwelling in the void beyond. They strove to carve out a civilization from the chaos of the naked universe, but the greatest danger they faced was not from the wilderness. It was from within.

Don't Call it "Cartoony"!I once called the artwork of a very prominent comic artist "cartoony" ( I meant it as a compliment) and he about strangled me. He then clearly detailed the difference between cartooning and illustration for me. Cartooning is what Charles Shultz and Gary Larson did/do, illustration is what we comic artist's do. So "cartoony" got replaced by "animated" or "stylized" or "exaggerated" when referring to the work of an illustrator who is not working in a realistic style. Well, whatever you want to call it, I have really grown to appreciate and admire artist's who work in a more exaggerated style of illustration (Check my favorites for a good example).Don't Call it "Cartoony"!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

TEENAGE ALIEN NINJA TURTLES JAMSorry we fail @ making new Jams.TEENAGE ALIEN NINJA TURTLES JAM3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Any excuses away, here's a new Jam!
With the news of the UPCOMING Michael Bay 'Ninja Turtles flick in light, lets do up a Ninja Turtles jam!
Here's the deal, redesign the Turtles, with designs not previously used in any iteration (Comic, Cartoon, Movie, Toys etc)
So basically depict the turtles like they'd never been officially depicted before.
Play up the whole 'alien' aspect of the New Bay-verse Turtles if you like, or don't.
So long as they're still turtles, but don't look like any way we've seen em already.
easy enough right?
*Depict any of the Turtles (all four or individual, doesn't matter) with a look they've not been depicted before.
*They're still NINJA Turtles, so make sure their weapons still play a part.
*Whatever medium, Black & White or Colour, doesn't matter.
Jam ends on:

You only get one life and there are many levels that you can pass. Try to think of life as a game. Always trying to get to that "next level." Identify what you could achieve to get to the "next level" in your life and put your energy into it!

5 Comic Book Truths (that I don't think are true)There are lots of tips, chestnuts, and other pieces of advice that I've heard over the years--tidbits of wisdom passed on from one generation to the next, from professional to professor to prospective student. Some of them are drawing tips, some of them are tricks to dealing with publishers, and some are general guidelines on how to survive in comics. Most of them are useful and true and will stand the test of time, but a few of them have become hackneyed platitudes and have gone unquestioned for too long. Here are 5 that I'm questioning...5 Comic Book Truths (that I don't think are true)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. READERS WILL ONLY LOOK AT A PANEL FOR 5 SECONDS, SO DON'T SWEAT IT TOO MUCH.
I understand the intention of this bit of wisdom, and I mostly agree with it: drawing great interiors is important, but at the same time, you don't want to get bogged down with small details that most readers won't even notice.
But here's my concern with this: if you treat every panel like it's disposable, then you're less likely to make an impact with reader
5 Ways to Avoid Being DiminishedThere's a discussion brewing in comics about artists being more diminished as of late--that readers, reviewers, and publishers are focusing too much on writers rather than the artists who draw the book. I agree it's happening, but I'm not sure it's worth sounding an alarm over. I never felt diminished, but maybe I'm part of the exception. Maybe it's because I'm an artist and a writer.5 Ways to Avoid Being Diminished1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Either way, I do have a few thoughts on what artists can do to pull themselves out from under the rug.
1. DON'T DRAW LIKE A COG.
If you conform to a "house style", then you're at higher risk of being treated like an interchangeable cog in the comics machine. Yes, you're more likely to get consistent work, but you won't stand out as much. Therefor you'll be sought after less by big name writers, you're less likely to make a lasting impression on reviewers and readers, and you'll have a harder time getting raises (12 others draw like you and for less money).
I also suggests inking yourself if it helps. Penc

At first, you see a busy thoroughfare. Cars whiz by and inclement weather prevails
A frail old woman, not even covered by a coat, considers crossing the street. The snow covers her glasses, blinding her. She wipes them off, only to find them covered again almost instantly. Just as she moves to step off the sidewalk, a handsome elderly gentleman approaches. He offers the woman his jacket, and prepares to guide her across the street. As he does so, the weather begins to clear and the traffic dissipates.

Just Fucking Do It!Here's another old post relevant to our current thread:Just Fucking Do It!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
When I was putting together my art book 'Dead Apes in the Snow', which is pretty much a retrospective and features a lot of my work that's up here on DA (and there's a free digital copy here: - www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/… ) I wanted to write something for aspiring artists that was honest, to the point, and not anodyne, with regard to how you get into the industry.
But the harder I tried the less true it seemed.
The reality is that there is no secret way in, you just - well - you just have to fucking do it!
This was the text that made it into the book. I know it sounds simple, and nothing is that easy (as the text says, it's a long, harsh and difficult road!) but there really is no easy answer, no fast-track into the trade. It's hard work, a bit of talent and a lot of luck.
Everything else anybody will

I am bringing your attention to a documentary, Beauty is Embarrassing, that
deeply inspired me after a screening last week. The life wisdom and positive
philosophy unfolding over a lifetime of living as an artist was deeply motivating.
I invited Wayne White, the subject of this documentary, to join deviantART afterwards.
I thought this would be something you would enjoy no matter where you might be at
on your own personal journey as an artist. While watching this I was also reminded
of the heartfelt explanations by many artists of what it means to choose the life of an Artist.
"Do what you love, It's going to lead where you want to go."
Please stop and say hello and welcome seewaynewhite in his first week at deviantART.

I typed "Lips" to get some references, for female characters, you can guess what type of images were mixed in the deviations.
Most of them extreme close ups of the female organs, but some of them are sooo angry, wish makes me laughing by remembering the movie Waiting, when Reynolds says its "ohhhh god, its sooo angryyyy".
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJEsNjH3JT8 this was kind of my reaction , in second 50.
Some of them freak me out and i was afraid to click on next page, i mean comeeee onnnnn, give them make up, or a haircut style or something.
They are photos that look like scanned, so bad quality. Like they dont care about art, just wanted to show their nakedness to the world.
