Sonic Artists And It's FandomI RARELY rant anymore but... I just have to rant about this because I have seen many of my favorite people say this. So many artists these past 2 or so months feel that drawing sonic art is a waste of time, it's an inferiority of art, it holds people back from achieving their dreams, all the excuses of the world. I have been drawing sonic art since I was what... 4 years old? I myself have been in the state where I said "I'M GONNA QUIT SONIC" because I let the bad side of the fandom get to me and I thought I had grown bored of it when really it was just.. me. Then I realised "I LOVE IT WHY DID I ABANDON YOUUUUU" .... Still today, there are so many people who bash on sonic artists but as a fellow member of the sonic fandom, I like to draw it and I like to look at it... No, I don't know anything past Sonic Unleashed, I don't even know Silver and Blaze's personality and I know jack about Mephiles. I don't know about any games on the Wii, I guess I am not what others to be considered a trueSonic Artists And It's Fandom7 months ago in Personal More Like This

First here's what would look like in the newsstand or local comic book store shelf.
Not bad huh? Just to clarify to everyone this is a mock publication that will be personally submitted (in person) to Archie Comics at Comic Con San Diego 2013 as a portfolio review (and as a gift too!). I plan to have a chat with Paul Kaminski (current Editor/Executive Director of Editorial at Archie Comics) and see what I need to do to gain a spot to work there in the near future.
And to be honest with you, many people here may think that I want to be one of the sequential artists, or be the one in charge of artistic direction (ie in the visual sense, like advanced story boarding ) of the stories that Ian writes for the Sonic series, or be one of those who help touch up the comic art (eg inker/colourist/letterer etc) but the reality is I'm not really interested in those aspects - and I know for a fact t

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
I GOT MY FIRST JOB!!!Today was a marvelous reminder of God’s perfect and amazing timing. For the last year and a half, I have not had a job because of schooling. My elderly grandmother and her sister have been supporting me month to month and I constantly believed the lie that I was selfish and ungrateful. I constantly guilt-tripped myself and told myself I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t do anything right.. I was consumed by fear of making mistakes.I GOT MY FIRST JOB!!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I have never worked a job in my life. Yea I do informal jobs like cleaning a persons house or babysitting, but never anything in public. I am 20 years old and I have never worked! Lol!
So I began to cry out to The Lord about it last year around summer vacation. My family was harassing me and telling me I was selfish. But I heard God through the midst tell me, “don’t worry about it Alex. Don’t even search for work. I have it under control.” “But God- what about when I am done with ministry school?!! I can’t even

Though they don't quite have much in their gallery yet, :aoki6311:'s does not disappoint. They have a nice digital coloring style that seems to mirror that seen while working with physical acyrlic paint on canvas; their shading and blending technique works well to produce a soft, yet defined color throughout each piece.
This combined with their strength of utilizing the most of each composition makes any future work they maybe showcase a treat to look forward to.

I'm not attacking anyone, I'm really not even mad anymore.
I know several people have apologized concerning their part in these events, and I really do appreciate that. So please, DO NOT go and attack the people who posted lies about me.
The only thing I want to accomplish through this journal is to make a clear record of events.
Also, I'm going to be providing several links to journals, stamps, comments, etc. Several people wrote various lies about me. I ask that you please only believe what you can prove, not just what you hear.

Sailor Moon Crystal ScheduleDear Sailor Moon fans,Sailor Moon Crystal Schedule8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I found a photo that has the schedule for the episodes of the Sailor Moon Crystal series, Dark Kingdom arc. I'm going to list the schedule in this journal entry and add the notes listed with the photo.
Please share this! It's your handy guide to every air date for Sailor Moon Crystal, plus where to stream it LEGALLY and a note on the Dark Kingdom Arc. Also make note that it's going to take a year for all of these episodes to stream on the internet. Also keep in mind that after act 2 (Episode 2) many websites especially NicoNico will charge to watch the live stream of the acts (Episodes). Enjoy <3
Notes from the photo:
"Sailor Moon Crystal is supposed to span the entire arc of the Dark Kingdom arc of the Manga. The Dark Kingdom arc lasted 14 arcs, ending with the debut of Chibiusa. There was also an additional side story, Casablanca Memory. Which takes place just before Sailor Venus arrives."
"Sailor Moon Crystal can be LEGALLY seen on Crunchy Roll, Hulu, Ne

Here's another article, this time on mentoring written by Steve Lieber .
I'm proud to say that Steve actually became a mentor of mine, (one of many) when I found my way to Periscope Studio. If it weren't for him I wouldn't be a professional today. Most of the professional etiquette I know comes directly from his years of experience and hard work in the industry. And before that, he learned from his own mentors! I think its super cool to finally become a part of this chain, and I hope someday I'll have the chance to help forge the next link. When I was alone and miserable trying to find my way into this industry, into ANY creative industry, I vowed if I ever made it I would turn aro

Folks I cannot stress how exciting this new year is going to be.
I'm in the process of applying for an Internship at Archie Publications Inc. for the Summer of 2014. Fingers crossed that everything will go smoothly - all the paperwork from Immigration US/Homeland Security can be a real pain in the butt.
Anyways now that I'm done with the first semester at the Academy of Art (averaging B/B+ grades!); spent quality time with me best mates via :iconchemb0t: and :iconevanstanley: for Christmas and New Years; and wished my family and friends a Happy New Years it's time to make full use of my three weeks before school starts this Spring 2014.
So here's the plan.
Before I make my way to the offices of Archie Publications I'm preparing another portfolio piece to showcase.

Don't look at me like that, ain't lying bro! Seems like some persons have a hard time to understand that, and I've also been noticing some comments that would let think that I don't care about the messages I receive or something. But Nono happens to be busy! To those professional stalkers, you may happen to see me online often because I check out my account every once in a Mawile (rofl) to see if I have any new commission request to do; My commission work is indeed what allows me to travel and roam here and there and nothing else (currently in Alberta, is anybody from there here? ) so again, I get benefits from deviantART in profit of my real life. THEN, when I find some time somewhere in said real life, I can sit my ass and reply to some messages that might be a bit less important; not saying that your messages aren't important
I'm strangeI am a strange person, I am different.I'm strange2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have started realising this as I'm slowly starting to grow up a bit more.
I don't have most manners one expects from an individual, I am too straight forward, too honest, a bit loud sometimes.
Too many expressions.
Too much talking.
Too much noise.
Too much physical contact towards others, is it bad that I want to feel them?
I thought it was beautiful to express yourself but sometimes I'm doubting it.
I will be happy and then I will be sad, I will feel awake, then tired.
I don't really know what's wrong with me but please, don't judge people when they are only expressing themselves and are not keeping a brick plain face. Cause I've tried to be what is considered "polite", and I actually am, but... I just wish society did not expect us to be so quiet all the time.
We only do it out of love.
I wish we could go outside and shout.
I wish we could laugh loudly without others staring with faces of disgust.

And so begins the next commission piece - and this one's a massive one.
A full blown illustration on an A3 sized 225gsm Card-stock Paper, much like this one that I illustrated commissioned by :iconkafelnikov:
My next project is a scene that was envisioned by the creator :iconCHICAGO-PD-STARS: for his Sonic Archie fan-fic - Fallen From Grace. The setting of a fun-fair/carnival holds roots to a fond past-time of his which makes this commission fulfilling to work on! Also do give his fan-fic a read if you haven't done so already - it's tailored especially to those who are looking for a brutally mature tone in their Sonic Archie stories.
So what have I thumb-nailed for the time-being? Well this!

I've been living in the states for over 2 months now and I'm lovin' it.
