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

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!
looking for Sonic Merch?Hey there, if you're anything like me, you're having a hard time finding Sonic toys in stores right now. I'm not saying you all need to get dozens of figures to make customs like I do, but you're probably trying to finish up your collections. I was recently directed to this site, Sonic Merchandise: http://www.sonicmerchandise.com/ Which sells most available Sonic stuff for reasonable prices, in fact their action figures cost a little less than the standard toysrus price. The only problem is the shipping, their cheapest option is "first class + signature required" which is close to $6. That's kind of crap since I know for a fact regular first class only costs about $3 for a single figure, and when I ordered 2 figures from their today the shipping actually went up to just over $10, so it's not like you can save a lot with bulk purchases. Still, it is a very useful site if your local stores aren't keeping the toys in stock right now.looking for Sonic Merch?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
DON'T GO THERE! IT COULD BE TRAP!Everyone may have heard about this Korea Drama stealing DA artworks. What they did use the linking robots similar to what Google used to link all websites and images for purpose of search engine. That's how the pictures ended up in that website.DON'T GO THERE! IT COULD BE TRAP!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's very likely that this website has malware/hackbots/worms/viruses/whatever bad waiting to snare any of you when you use that search engine in that website. I went there once and I got all of the "Cookies" warnings so that's where I know that something's wrong.
Since we don't know what kind of malware they used or their intentions even I got the warning. So as precaution, don't just go there!!
Please pass this information around, thanks!

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

Since Sonic's past life was never shown I made up that he was a little abandoned hoglet on an island called Green Hill, he was raised in an orphanage for a little while until he learned to walk then he ran away and was on his own, he didn't know how to talk yet though and he met Tails who taught him how but it took a while, that's why Classic Sonic is a mute 'cause he can't speak very well and there was never a trace of Sonic's parents or anything. ^^))

"Kiriban" is a word that lots and lots of people use, especially here on Deviantart. Get the pageview hit, get a gift. however...
most people in general know what it is, but not what it means -> http://forum.deviantart.com/devart/general/977173/

this term and what it actually mean so I did a nice amount of searchin.
first I found this googled:
"Kiriban is the Japanese term (Kanji: キリ番 ) for web counter special"
but that doesnt really help to understand the meanig
so I googled "キリ番":
and found out that キリ番 is actually a shorten version of「きりのいい番号」
so... for this, キリ would mean "cut" and "きりのいい" would mean "well cut"
「きりのいい番号」would then literally mean- "a we

Judge Not...?Let's take a look at one of the most quoted passages in the whole Bible.Judge Not...?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Oh, and we're gonna do things a bit different today.
Unlike most people, we're actually going to look at context.
"Judge not, that ye be not judged.
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged:
and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye,
but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Or how wilt thou say to thy brother,
Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye;
and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye;
and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye."
Didja catch the very last verse?
The one that completely debunks the "Judge Not"ers?

There are very few things that tick me off. Normally, I don't get angry, or yell, or scream. But, there are times when some of you (not ALL of you) drive me to the point where I want to delete my gallery, shut down all my social media info, and throw my computer into a garbage truck. So let's get some of this shit sorted before I do that.
1. Stop role-playing. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I don't care that your character is a 9th level super saiyan keyblade user with a sailor scout sister who is totally immune to all forms of mind control. If it looks like a bad tracing, Sonic recolor, or artwork that you flood-filled in MS Paint, I'm not going to care. I don't reply to role-play comments, nor will I. So either leave a comment I WILL notice, or just don't comment at all. (For the record, comments I notice are kind words

Anyway, I just wanted to drop a line to let everyone know I haven't died. Not yet anyway. I've just been really busy working on Sonic the Hedgehog issue 260 pencil art. Drawing a whole issue is really hard... especially for me who has zilch experience with this stuff. I appreciate Paul's patience.
I was also dropping a line to anyone who is still waiting for me to finish their commission. I'm so sorry it's taken so long, literally years, to get your work to you. I can totally understand if you want a refund and you can send me and email if you do to chibijenhen at aol dot com and I'll get that to you. I'm only saying this because I have been assigned four issues of Sonic so that probably means I'll have zero time to work on that stuff and won't be getting it to you anytime soon, although I WILL FINISH THEM! I SWEAR IT! But if you are sick of waiting, and I can only understand if you are, then feel free to shoot me a line and c

Follow this link : http://stconline.co.uk/workforus.html
BIG reminders for artists :
- Do NOT trace anyone's artwork, like Richard Elson. Do your own art yourself.
- Send us sequential art ! Pin-ups and illustrations are fine but don't tell how you can tell a story through your pages.
- Style isn't a particular issue. STC has always had a diverse set of styles, and so long as it's relatively close to the Sonic style and the characters are instantly recognisable (one eye for Sonic, bodies at least slightly larger than their heads, etc.) there won't be any problems. Please don't submit anthro art or any wild variations on the style: it has to maintain style alongside a group of other artists. Basically, we'll be fine with anything within reason.
- The more complete your art is, the better. If you can get your work pencilled, inked, and coloured with no extra hands then that's ideal, but if you can only do black and whites you should be ok

Spiritual Eavesdropping?Last night I had a terrible splitting headache and it got even worse after I took some pain reliever. So before I went to bed I prayed to God that the pain may go away so I can go worship Christ with church without pain. When I woke up this morning, I didn't feel the pain. So I went to church this morning and I felt great! Praise God even for little things like that!Spiritual Eavesdropping?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Then after church, as I sat in the cafe area, I found myself eavesdropping on a conversation between two women. The woman named Theresa was sharing news with her friend that she has stage one breast cancer. And yet she remained with a positive attitude as she shared the news, laughing and talking about how challenging it is for us to be positive and actually love and trust God when those challenges come, because we are all human. Even she had struggled at times. But she knows that she's in Good hands and that whatever is to come she can trust in God regardless of what happens. And so I prayed in secret after the two friend

This is the internet, nobody will know at a glance that you're a young kid, so if you post anywhere you are going to be judged HARSHLY as if you are one of their peers. When you post proofread your sentences to make sure they're intelligible and be prepared to get replies from people who disagree with your opinion that include insults, harsh language, and swearing. This means getting your grammar straight, remember to check to make sure you're using the right "your" (You're means "you are," your means "that belongs to you," and if you use single letters to represent words like "u" and "r" people are going to assume that you are stupid or a total douche, that is a simple fact of life. Lastly, your web browser should have a spell checker built in, if you see a red line under on

Let us take a look at Love. We can all agree that God is Love right? Does anyone know how many times love is mentioned in the bible? In the NIV it is found 500 times! Wow right!! How many times is hate mentioned? 74 times SO we can see how much emphasis was put on LOVE. Love is actually putting someone before you.
Did you know that Jesus put you before himself when He came here and walked this earth and suffered and died for you? Talking about selflessness!
Let us look at some scripture referring to love:
Exodus 20: 1-6
1 And God spoke all these words:
2 "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
3 "You shall have no other gods before me.
4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the child
