AbsenceI've been a bit absent as of late and that's because I got a concept art job at Sony Guerrilla in Amsterdam!Absence11 months ago in Personal More Like This
This meant I had to leave my house, my boyfriend :icontituslunter: and my cat and move abroad again.
This sure ain't easy..
But the job is great so far! Guerrilla is an amazing studio and I'm working on an amazing game!
They are still hiring people so do have a look:
After 4 years of freelance and mobile game studio's this will be my firs in-house job at an AAA studio.
(In-house means, on location at the office and not from home.) I am happy.
I will still continue making informative journals like before and I'm open to topic suggestions.

There's a bunch of challenges run by yours truly over on the small but growing, honest but lovely forum permanoobs. Everyone is welcome to join and learn together! Go here! http://forums.permanoobs.org/viewforum.php?f=5

Some of you might remember the old days on conceptart.org when everyone would post all the things they drew every day and kick each other's butt and give critique and get motivated over seeing how much everyone around you would be improving. For the last years, there hasn't really been a place to get that kind of motivation any more.
I made a small forum to rekindle that kind of helpful atmosphere. It's a really small community, just for posting practice work and getting critique from others. A bunch of great people are already there posting their daily stuff and kicking each other's butt. Obviously I'm there too, updat
The answer to everything/La respuesta a todoENGLISHThe answer to everything/La respuesta a todo2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As you probably noticed, Lehanan and me are always giving excuses about being slow in our work, we are really busy, we hardly ever have time to do new stuff... etc.
Well, just to let you know... it happened because Lymbus, our webcomic that was being posted through SmackJeeves, got the interest of a Spanish publisher and they're going to print it. This happened in February 2012... 10 months passed already, re-doing the whole stuff, fixing errors and giving it a more professional look.
That is our real excuse. We worked really hard these last months and we got loads of problems due to lack of time, lack of jobs, money, etc. But, today, our publisher gave us permission to tell you about it officially: Lymbus is gonna be published IN PRINT. And we couldn't say that until now.
So, sorry about that but we had to stop posting it online, REGARDLESS the language. It was not because we forgot about it. It was not because we forgot about all our beloved fans. It was because w

It all started when I got home an awesome game called Baldur's Gate II. I never played the first part but I was told I didn't needed to do it and the sequel was way better, so I got an addict-gamer that spent most of my free time playing this game.
When choosing my character, I felt in love in one of the designs the game provided. It was a grey-haired elf, so I decided him to be a warrior-thief (only elves could have a double-proffession!). He was good/neutral-alligned and I called him Eythanel. I loved his grey hair!! So I started to develop a "grey/silver-haired fetish".
You have no idea of how much I loved that character. I could never finish the game because I got stuck in the battle with the las
Why it's so important to unite as artists.We are with many though yet we are with few. We're all divided over little subgroups such as, fantasy illustrators, concept artists, comic book pencilers, photomanipers, techartists, anime drawers, realism sketchers etc. You might even find your place at multiple sections.Why it's so important to unite as artists.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I found that the biggest united groups on Deviant Art are mostly evolved around fan art, such as Sonic, or My little pony.
Observations aside, I think the good thing about those groups is that they serve for companionship. Being an artist all by yourself with no one to share/talk about/discuss your work with can feel rather lonely. And that lonely feeling is not encouraging at all. Most of us keep a lot of things taboo as well, like techniques or rates. If we were more openly with these the changes of being underpaid or missing out on a job because someone else does it for hardly any money at all will grow slimmer. People should know what they are worth and not be afraid to ask for it.

Phil Fish Hacked
Phil Fish, the creator of FEZ, is pretty much universally hated by people online. Recently he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, creator of Depression Quest, who was herself under fire from internet thought police for “corrupting” games journalism’s integrity by sleeping with journalists to get favorable reviews of her game (allegations which later proved to be untrue). Because he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, Phil found himself under a massive internet attack, wherein hackers compromised his SSI, passwords, Polytron's PayPal account, and other sensitive data.
In the wake of the attack, Phil Fish is now selling off the rights to FEZ and to Polytron. He left with this rather depressing twitter message: “I
Art studiesI've been doing a lot of study material recently in order to get better and hopefully more content with my artwork. (No, these weren't posted publicly. I'm shy to do so XD)Art studies3 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In order to learn more, I'm looking for simple studies or exercises that can be done in a day or so, which will improve my art. I've been doing a lot of gesture drawings and still life and photo study's already. But I'm looking for more methods that will help me tackle the hard topics of lighting (painting), anatomy, and compositions --area's in which I feel I'm severely lacking-- and will help me get some insight.
I make a list of all exercises here (which will be updated);
- Gesture drawings [Draw human poses from photo reference]
- Still life study's [Draw a still life from reference]
Feel free to add things to this list.
Furthermore I'm looking for artists that want to study with me. Study-mates, yes. Because unfortunately I don't have the luxury of having many artistic friends irl that can h
When inspiration is far to be found...We all get these anoying times when we really want to make something cool, get inspired and work that magic. We see everyone around us (online) do it, but how come we are not?When inspiration is far to be found...7 months ago in Personal More Like This
So we look for ways to get inspired, we ask around, find these usual answers: go watch a film, listen to music.. take a walk...
But even when we do that, we still end up stuck most of the time.
Part of the solution is knowing WHY we get stuck and this is my theory.
ADT - Attention Deficit Trait.
'Experiencing an inner frenzy of distractability, impatience, difficulty in setting priorities, staying focused and managing time. Those are our biggest enemies as they all end up cluttering your head and keeping you from spending quality focused time on a singular topic.
Everything we do now a days is based around multitasking and it is giving us a constant overdose of information. Let me elaborate.

How to draw during 365 daysHow to draw during 365 days4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
By the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.
I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey.
It's okay to start simple!
My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!
Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings?
What do do as an artist in training.There are many ways to Rome they say. But I find most aspiring artists lost and asking me for guidanceWhat do do as an artist in training.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
and this is what I tell them.
Find out for yourself what you really want to do with art, there are so many different professions.
Graphic designer, Concept artist (mobile and high end), Illustrator of bookcovers, or card games.
Once you can make your pick, or at least pick 1 or 2 you must find the best work on the market in those fields.
Find out what makes the best art of your favorite field the best art. What do they paint? How do they paint it? With knowing this you can find out about the things you need to study.
The most basic study aims are the following:
What forms of light art there? And how does it influence things?
The book Color and Light by James Gurney will give you a lot of insight.
How do you paint shapes? How do you light them the right way?
You will learn a l

Aonuma Trolling , Ubisoft Lying, Skyrim ComicsAonuma TrollingAonuma Trolling , Ubisoft Lying, Skyrim Comics11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I should’ve updated my last journal right away when I found out that Aonuma was just trolling with the whole “was that really Link or not?” comment... On one side I’ve been getting inundated with people pointing out how “wrong” I was in the journal (despite the journal clearly coming out BEFORE he clarified his statement), and on the other side maintaining the concept that maybe it wasn’t Link has kept some fans a little TOO hopeful for the idea of a female Link or even that maybe it was him and Zelda’s daughter.
Sorry guys, but that actually WAS Link. I’m pretty disappointed in that, honestly, but I gotta try to be positive and not let this one set back discourage me. On the bright side so many people were “trending” about how much they’d love to see a female Link, that I think Nintendo finally took notice and realized it’s not just a deviant fan fantasy.

Things I Wish Comics Would Stop DoingLater this week SYAC will be posting a series of “Things I Wish Comics Would Stop Doing” strips. This is the start of what might be an ongoing series within SYAC in general, though it really depends on how well it goes over...Things I Wish Comics Would Stop Doing1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In the past I’ve drawn my own artwork to explain things, but that’s always resulted in people accusing me of not knowing what I’m talking about and demanding actual sources. I don’t like the idea of using actual sources because my criticism of these techniques could easily be misinterpreted as criticism against specific artists, which is entirely the wrong idea. A lot of the time, these are pervasive techniques used throughout the mainstream (American) comic industry and are not the fault of any one particular artist. It’s more of a condemnation of perpetuating “bad habits” than anything else.
As a result, this new batch of “Things I Wish Comics Would Stop Doing” strips will feature actual artwork
Korrasami is Canon: ConfirmedAvatar series creators Bryan Konietzko and Mike DiMartino both confirmed today via their personal blogs that Avatar Korra and Asami are actually a romantic bisexual couple.Korrasami is Canon: Confirmed4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I’ve taken a lot of heat over the past couple of days for celebrating the ending as being very progressive. A lot of people seemed quite adamant that Korra and Asami were just good friends and there was nothing romantically intentional about the ending at all. Some even going so far to say that my comment about the bi-sexual flag colored mountains was “reading too much into it.”
But y’all can suck it now! Cuz it’s CONFIRMED!

Fast lane to becoming a better artist.I often get this very question: How did you get this good this fast?Fast lane to becoming a better artist.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Now as I consider myself not being as good as people tell me, even struggling quite often with being an artist in general.
I do know how to get better and how to reach it fast. I'm still growing as I go and it's the main thing that keeps me going.
You need to get into the right mindset and the rest will follow. With the rest I mean:
3. Positive energy.
4. The NEED to draw.
Seeing growth in your work gives you the courage to work harder. You know that feeling when you're just about done with an image
and feel like this image is better than your last one, that great feeling. Use it!
Do studies! Lots of them!! Make film shot studies, live object studies, master-painting studies. They will teach you a lot about composition, lighting, colors, shapes storytelling etc.
You will hardly notice that you are learning thing
The stuff that artists go through.There are so many pro's and con as to being an artist, professional or as a hobby.The stuff that artists go through.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It feels nice to be able to express yourself through something you make and when that something turns out to be looking good we get this sense of accomplishment.
Most of the time though there are bad feelings mixed with the good ones.
Not being understood. Those moments where your friends or family does not understand that you have to desire to be alone and work on your art. Those copious amounts of hours you spend working and they wonder why you wouldn't rather be outside relaxing in the sun or hang out with your friends.
The only people who will ever fully understand this are other artists or simply very understandable people. It's important they they will eventually understand so there wont be any hurt feelings. Try to explain ti as calmly and rational as you can, perhaps with using examples in terms they would understand.
Make 2015 awesome!A new year started. So some words of inspiration for those that want to pursue art this year...Make 2015 awesome!4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Don't worry about your age. Do not get discouraged by those that are younger than you and better. Some people start art when they are 6 years old and are prodigy's at age 16, others make a rather late or slow start. It doesn't matter if you're 10 or 80 years old. You're never too old to learn something new, and you're never too old to do something you enjoy.
Everybody has potential. Even the greatest masters in art started out as beginners. It just takes a lot of time and persistence.
Don't be afraid to fail. Most masters have failed more times than any beginner even tried.
We only see the best from other people, and compare it with our own average. For every amazing painting a good artist puts online, he probably made 100 failed sketches. Sketches you'll never see and you'll never know o

'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi

o nieszczesliwej milosciChciałabym Wam powiedzieć o mojej bardzo nieszczęśliwej miłości która trwa od 3 lat.o nieszczesliwej milosci3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Był to okres wielkanocny. Poznaliśmy się chyba w sklepie, było miło i wesoło. Zawsze mieliśmy wspólny język, zainteresowania i identyczne plany na przyszłość. Spędzaliśmy ze sobą bardzo wiele romantycznych nocy. Zawsze działaliśmy razem i tworzyliśmy zgrany zespół. Wszystko zaczęło się psuć półtora roku temu, kiedy to ja ze względu na studia nie mogłam jeździć do miasta gdzie wtedy to on przebywał. Po kilku szczerych rozmowach, miałam wrażenie że wszystko wróciło do normy ale tak naprawdę było wręcz przeciwnie. Nie zdradzał mnie, nie kochał innej. On się po prostu znudził życiem, tym co robiliśmy i wspólnie pielęgnowaliśmy.
