SIN ART CONTEST (Winners Announced!)
Alright, without further adieu I'm here to announce the winners! The judging process was painfully difficult, what with so many of you doing an amazing job and all that I actually had to ask some friends around on their opinion of the whole thing! Anywho, please contact me via Email or DA notes to receive your awards :]
Each entry is judged based on Technical Skill and Concept for a total score, congratulations to our winners! Also once more, I'd like to give a tremendous thank you to those who participated. :]
1st: Kevin Libranda
The guy behind Novus Karma manages to make my own characters look better than the way I draw them! Haha. Seriously though the color, composition, character (Enyo's face! <3) and just overall finesse of the thing is really impressive and a testament to his skills.

Instagram Can Sell Your Photos Without Paying YouEDIT 19/12/12: Instagram has responded.Instagram Can Sell Your Photos Without Paying You2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Though the language they use seems to want to overly passify rather than address issues. "Your photos are your photos and we respect that." is a nice sentiment but does not necessarily exclude "we have the right to license and use your stuff even though you own the content" By signing up to instagram you are giving them permission to do this even though you do technically own the content you are submitting.
I'm not going to flail my arms about doom, but I will say, artists be aware. Not just about this, but about any contracts you sign. There is some real sketchy language in the fine print here that needs to be clarified or changed as of right now. More than just an "everything's fine, don't worry" letter. Company lawyers have a tendency to try to take the largest chunk of whatever they can, and only back off when their actions are made public and they ar
A New LevelAbout 14 years ago I started my comic career with Dreamwave. After that I moved onto Nelvana for a while and worked on two shows. During that I started with UDON where I still am. In 2011 I started to teach at Seneca College in Toronto.A New Level2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years you've heard me belly ache about my mixed feelings about what I work on and what type of rhetorical acrobatics I do to justifiy it to myself. For the most part it's to pay the bills and that it's just what I do until something else comes along. I never claim that anything I work on is representory of my moral beliefs or religion for that matter nor do I try to excuse myself under the guise of some self serving excuse, it just simply is my situation.
I'm happy for all the work I have and am doing and I do it as well as I possibly can. I am the sole provider for my family and I thank God for all the work that i do have and my thanks and appreciation manifests itself in my effort to try and do the best I can.

Devious Journal EntryJust a little note...Devious Journal Entry1 year ago in Personal More Like This
When you see an artist you like and you are trying to figure his work out... the question that gets asked a lot is" How did you do it?"
What software did you use to make this effect?
What is your technique?
These are questions that won't get you anywhere. It's like asking for the fish.
A question you should probably ask is WHY did you do this?.. WHAT were you thinking?
When you ask this question, you are thinking about the principles of fishing, and not just about catching A fish.
If you wonder why, then you won't be stuck with the HOW.. you will most probably create your own "HOW", your own method of putting your WHY into existence..and this is what will really make you unique.
Once again.. this is just my take on things.

I know some of you have expressed concern that the video will just encourage copycats. Well, after over two years of posting online I have learned a few things. First, imitation and copying is inevitable. It sucks but it IS going to happen at some point if your work becomes popular enough. I do have copycats, and I do keep an eye on them. I can't really do much about them, unless they blatantly copy a design. So I've learned to live with it. I appear to have a very protective fanbase, as I am constantly alerted by you good people when anyone might be copying me. I like to think that most people can figure out
ARTGERMINATION - My Digital Art ChatroomARTGERMINATION - My Digital Art Chatroom3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many people has asked me about the rationale behind my nickname - Artgerm in many occasions. To me it is more than just a nick, it is actually my mission statement in my art journey, which I would like to see people get "infected" by my works and inspire them to create art. I've been drawing for the past 20 years, in which 16 years in digital medium. Art has already been part of my life long time ago - it is my passion, my profession and my life. Although majority of my time has been devoted to the commercial projects and my family and leave me very little time to impart my art knowledge to others outside of my studio, my mission statement has never and will never change.
As a result, I've decided to setup a deviantArt chatroom recently called Artgermination for all digital art discussions, which I put in a good amount of my time daily to interact with other dA members, sharing with them my journey in art and con

Whether or not you're looking forward to The Hobbit this December, know of it, love it, hate it, or care, there is a running production vlog on the Tube that is extremely entertaining. They whisk you all over the tip of the iceberg that is major motion picture production, and it is again and again incredible to see SO MANY talented people building this beast from the ground up. Most of all, it's hugely inspirational to see creative people of every single cut out there having such a damn good time together, every one of them an important and unique part of the whole. Gives me shivers and stuff. C:
Also the props, scenes, costumes, and prosthetics are as mind-blowing as Lord of the Rings and all the cast and crew involved are hilarious and wonde
9 Reasons to LOVE YOUR INK!1. - Ink can be used for drawing, writing or painting, anything you chose! You can use it with a brush, cartridge pens or drawing nibs, even a goose-quill will do!9 Reasons to LOVE YOUR INK!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
2. - Ink can be water-soluble or, unlike watercolor, waterproof. Once dried out, it stays where you left it, it doesn't run away from you!
3. - Ink can be watered down and used as washes, just like watercolor, but it can be used at full strength, achieving more consistent results!
4. - Ink, when dried on paper, results in a very appealing velvety surface.
5. - Ink is in many cases a lot cheaper than watercolor, even school quality (very cheap) inks bring lovely and very satisfactory results.
6. - Inks are colorful! Forget the black ink, you will be able to buy whole variety of colored inks. Also, you can mix them together to create many more colors & hues!
7. - White ink is a perfect assistant in many other techniques, use it to create highlights and special effects!
8. - Ink
