I AM RETURN'DI have been hush-hush for a while now, but that doesn't mean I haven't been brewin' stuff up. SO LET'S JUST CUT TO THE CHASE - HAVE A NEW PAGE of DOUBLE K, and then, come Tuesday of next week, there will be another - along with a giant GIGATON NUKE of an announcement.I AM RETURN'D2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thanks for being so cool about the protracted absence, everybody. Big things take time, and life often gets in the way simultaneously, so it's been really awesome reading the comments from everybody being all like "take your time, duder." (HappyAggro, shout out to you in particular, that was mucho appreciated and very kindly/hilariously worded.) Said it before and I'll say it again, you're the best bunch of readers a dude like me could possibly ask for
ANYWAY YEAH enjoy that new page, and I'll see you again on Tuesday. STAY BEAUTIFUL, FRIENDOS
I'm changing my name.That's right. I'm changing my DA name.I'm changing my name.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've thought long and hard and have decided to change it toooooo.......
That's right; i'm one of the few artists here on DA that seems content with my name. That; and I think changing a "brand" simply because you can, after you've spent time and energy building up an audience is f**king stupid.
I've been here for years. I've operated on the internet under "jollyjack" for longer. If I changed that now it would be monumentally confusing to people that follow my work, which, in turn, would have an effect on revenue.
There are a ton of artists here whose work I keenly follow, and I think they're kinda shooting themselves in the foot by doing this.
Kinda reminds be of those little label-making things everyone's been given on at least one Christmas as a kid: you unwrap it, you find out what it does and you spend the rest of the day punching out new tags for everything. Even if they'
Devious Journal EntryDevious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: Thanks for the info on reindeer gender-antler technicalities. I did learn this in my teens, but I just kind of enjoy drawing the deer as white-tails like I did as a kid. I know it's incorrect, but the nostalgia factor is more fun for me. Merry Christmas fellow biology nerds!
When I was would little, my obsessive love for Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer would inspire me to draw Santa's eight reindeer to string together for Christmas decorations around the house. Even as a kid, I wanted some of the reindeer to be girls (it only seemed fair) and Dancer, Vixen and Cupid where always featured without antlers to show Santa didn't discriminate against the does!
So here's sweet-natured Cupid to wish you Happy Holidays! Have a wonderful day, everyone!
Want to work on a game with me?Edit: Do not link me to character designs/comic pages/etc! I AM NOT LOOKING FOR THAT! If you don't have background designs, then don't apply! Sending unrelated artwork is unprofessional and a waste of my time.Want to work on a game with me?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hey folks, as I’ve mentioned a couple times, I’m working on a game project! As of right now, I’m handling all of the artwork myself, and it’s a pretty daunting task. So, I’m looking to outsource some of the work.
Naturally I don’t expect good work for free. This would be a paid gig!
If you would like to be involved but are short on time (I can relate) we could possibly work something out where you just sketch the backgrounds and someone else inks/colors them. It’s the design aspect I need assistance with.
If you’re interested, please send me an email with some samples of your artwork @ email@example.com.
Please spread the word! I need applications ASAP. You can help b

Lived Long and ProsperedThe great Leonard Nimoy has died, age 83.Lived Long and Prospered3 days ago in Personal More Like This
There’s not really much I can write about the chap or his impact on sci-fi culture that you’re not already aware of. We all knew and loved him as Spock from Star Trek. Hell, I named one of my webcomic’s characters after him.
Nimoy never forgot about his fans, either, and how it is they who ensured his lasting popularity. It’s telling that it was he who cameoed in the recent Trek films and not Shatner.
Being the awesome man he was, his final words to the public (by way of twitter) were “LLAP”.
“Live Long and Prosper”.

fucking internet.....i consider myself a fairly open minded person, and quite an easy guy to talk to. when people want to share my pictures and strips, i take it as a compliment. when people want to do fanarts i take it as an even greater one.fucking internet.....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
when people want to trace my stuff or use it as a reference, i say, go for it. if it helps you learn something, awesome!
when people want to edit something of mine and take the moment to ask me to do it, i usually say yes
we are all different, we all have our own little fetishes, and mine being bdsm, who the fuck am i to judge.
but recently i have been sent a link of one of my pictures, ally and lisa as a ponygirl one edited to be a guy....and it pissed me off.
not because the picture was edited, hell not even because whoever did it ended up putting their own website watermark to it... fuck it
what pissed me off is that the person who did it couldn't take a second to ask could he or she do it. just basic respect
cause the funny thing is, i wou
Why I Draw Women OftenI recently got a message, and I will slightly reword it so as not to cause profane friction, nor will I state who it came from, but it read like this: "Why is everything you post regarding a woman? I think it's very sexist when the only thing you can draw are breasts and buttocks like it's the only thing in the world."Why I Draw Women Often2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so by now, if you haven't been watching me for a good minute, you know that I really like to draw women, and I like portraying the female form, usually and often in a tasteful manner. I could hypothetically end that question there and just answer "I wasn't aware everything in my gallery was a woman or had breasts and a butt" and then post a picture or two of Rai Rivet... But I'm not going to do that. I'm going to explain my stance on drawing the female form and my adoration for it.

3 Accounts Added to deviantART's Twitter NetworkIt's been about two months since we launched deviantART's Twitter Network. We've been gathering feedback about the accounts and recently made some changes based on your requests.3 Accounts Added to deviantART's Twitter Network3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
1. Some deviants were concerned about the frequency of tweets. After following multiple accounts, some felt that their Twitter timeline contained too many tweets from the Twitter Network. So based on your feedback, the accounts will now be tweeting slightly less frequently. All eight accounts are designed to tweet evenly throughout the day to reduce the amount of noise in your Twitter stream. I recommend choosing your favorite accounts to follow if you're still concerned with frequency.
2. We originally launched five categories to start, and we wanted to see which categories you thought should be added next. By popular request, <b>

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.

Legend of Korra: Costume Design!One of the neat things about being the lead designer of a show like Young Justice is getting to interact with the fans through sites like this one, seeing the awesome fan art you guys do is a big inspiration for myself and a lot of the other artists and writers on the show. It really keeps us motivated knowing that you guys and girls appreciate the characters and stories we are creating. Along with great art my other favorite aspect of fandom, and easily the most hardcore representation of it, is the cosplayers and their dedication to show accurate costumes. So with SDCC right around the corner I thought I would share a little something interesting with all you Legend of Korra fans out there, as well as cosplayers in general. Last year at around this time my good buddy, Joaquim http://2-cents.deviantart.com/, who is a co-executive producer on Korra, asked my wife, she is a clothing designer by trade, to create a show accurate Korra outfit to be worn by the official model representing tLegend of Korra: Costume Design!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Olympic Fire and IndustryWell; the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics certainly was .surprising.Olympic Fire and Industry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I predicted; there was quite a bit of content that just had me squirming in my chair, thinking "No! NO! Why did you do that?!". The absurdity of the nod to the NHS, for example, and the sudden appearance of various storybook villains, which felt (for lack of a better word) "Disney".
However; the "historical" section of the ceremony's opening half utterly blew me away. An unexpected appearance by Kenneth Branagh, playing Isambard Kingdom Brunel (who essentially WAS the Industrial Revolution), began a spectacular sequence that pretty much summed up what Britain's past was all about; fire and industry.
It was, without a doubt, the highlight of the entire spectacle, and if you either didn't get the chance to catch it or didn't bother to watch it, I urge you to track it down online!
And then there was James Bond .charged with the most difficult seduction of his career.
Yes. That really was her. I couldn'
