My review on the commissions widgetAs most all of you probably already know, recently a Commissions widget was released to Beta Testers. I've heard a lot of negativity towards this feature, specially because of the 20% that DA takes from the artist's earnings. But I've always thought that before saying anything about any feature on DA I would prefer to test it first, so I recently installed this widget in my profile offering some simple comissions and now that I've had the oppotunity to test it, here is my opinion.My review on the commissions widget3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
First, the 20% deduction from your income. Yes I'm not a big fan of it either, in my opinion, the biggest negative of this feature.
I'm not an $admin or a developer and I'm not an economics expert either, so I don't understand the reasons for this deduction, however I know there must be a reason for it besides the obvious that DA needs money to keep itself running. Yes, knowing this doesn't help much, but at

For that I hollowly apologise, because, like the nature of the comic, the pain was unavoidable, but there is still more to come. I'm still in the process of torturing myself, my characters and most of you. There were a few comments where people assumed this was the last page in the story and I just want to assure you it's not, don't worry, I'll let you know with a big THE END at the end of it. Sorry in advance, but thank you all for for your comments and your emotions and numerous icons of crying. They make this worthwhile.
I had a lovely time in the Pyrenees last week! I've been so busy since I've been back though, but the good type of busy. Hopefully if all goes well I'll have another page to you by this evening.

Harley Quinn Contest
In case you haven't heard yet, DC is holding a contest to hire fresh young artists to help work on the new Harley Quinn series. http://www.dccomics.com/node/305151 This is fantastic news for a lot of artists, as "breaking in" to the big comic book companies can be extraordinarily difficult to do and this helps level the playing field. However, the way they've chosen to hold the contest is to have everyone submit 4 illustrations based on 4 separate scripts... all of which depict Harley Quinn as suicidal and trying to kill herself "comically."
Now first off, I get the fact that Harley Quinn is part of the "Suicide Squad," and that these illustrations are likely poking fun at that. However I feel that fact falls on it's face since the term "Suicide Squa

Tracing HellIn the most recent brentalfloss: The Comic (which is about crossovers by the way), I did a parody image of the video game Journey but Doctor Who themed. I chose the iconic image of the character standing before a tall glowing mountain far off in the distance, replaced the mountain with the dying Tardis from "The Name of The Doctor," and changed the Journey character into the 4th Doctor. I thought it was quite good and pleased with the results but... apparently there's a shitstorm brewing (probably on tumblr) about it because I "traced" the Journey image.Tracing Hell2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm no stranger to this accusation, as it happened last year on my London poster with how I portrayed Big Ben. Now, I get the anger over that because it was a poster that was going up for sale and I had used an image of Big Ben that was directly from Wikipedia. Didn't matter that I still drew Big Ben by hand, it was still "traced" and therefor I was considered the lowliest scum on the face of the planet. The internet blew up at me, acc

I'm sure most of you have heard the news, but for those who haven't, Generation 6 of Pokemon has been announced! There will be two new games, Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, set to be released this October!
So far, the starters and the two main legendaries have been revealed, Xerneas & Yveltal. Which starter will you choose: Chespin (Grass), Fennekin (Fire) or Froakie (Water)?
Also, in light of this announcement, we will start taking submissions for official Generation 6 Pokemon (this means for the time being, only the three starters and the two legendaries that have been revealed. NO Fakemon!). For now, they will have to be housed in the Featured folder until we can figure out if we can ever add more folders to our gallery.
I hope everyone has a good week, and is looking forward to the new games! c:
2DS and Affleck as BatmanGoodness, I go away for a little bit and the whole internet freaks out.2DS and Affleck as Batman2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, like many, I think the Nintendo 2DS is pretty stupid. But where others go on to criticize Nintendo and screaming bloody murder, I chose to just let it slide because the Nintendo 2DS isn't meant for me so I don't really care one way or the other.
See this is the problem I see with people who bitch and moan about Nintendo. They treat every single announcement like it somehow personally affects them, when usually it's an OPTIONAL thing they don't have to even deal with. Remember during the casual vs hardcore wars of the Wii era and people decrying Nintendo for adding the option to let Luigi play a level of NSMBWii if you failed too many times? Brilliant idea that ensures that players that work at it succeed and never see the option, and players that are duly frustrated after dying X number of times are allowed to still proceed but at a cost. But nope, that announcement was treated a
To Enable or Disable - THAT is the questionPewDiePie is closing comments on his YouTube videos. In his opinion the disconnect between YouTube personality and fans is too great, and most YouTube comments are worthless spamming, hating, or just plain garbage. While he has turned off comments before in protest of certain things, this time around he says comments are gone for good on all future videos uploaded to YouTube. You can watch his video describing this new change here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_hHKlEZ9GoTo Enable or Disable - THAT is the question1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What interests me about this, however, is the way in which people are reacting to it. A lot of people are saying “good!” or “YouTube comments are terrible, so I totally understand why he’d do that!” Which is a little surprising to me... because of Anita Sarkeesian.
Now we’ve talked about Anita Sarkeesian before. She makes feminist videos dissecting tropes about women in gaming. As a result of her doing this, she’s gotten ungodly amounts of backlash and hatred. Since her vid

This last batch of SYAC strips has really worn me out mentally. I think I’m gonna need to take a small break to recharge my batteries after this. I’ve been finding myself getting increasingly pissed off, angry, hostile, and irritated, even at things that don’t really deserve the frustration. Primarily as a result of having to re-explain incredibly simple concepts over and over and over again, as if my art doesn’t speak for itself.
On top of this, I’ve got a new job, a big project in the works, commissions to finish, and everything else that having a life entails. I don’t feel like I should have to re-explain myself SO MANY TIMES over something as simple as “women are people, treat them as such.” Nor do I feel like I should be sent death-threats over proposing such a radical idea either.
It’s so incredibly sad and pathetic that saying “hey,

Captain America: Civil War - May 6, 2016
It’s already been confirmed that THIS version of Civil War will be vastly different from the comic book variation (owing largely to the fact that Marvel doesn’t own the rights to many of the supporting characters). Instead this version will be about some sort of government registration act to regulate super heros, and that Captain America and Iron Man will either try to run, or find issue with. So no, sorry, this won’t be Captain America vs Iron Man like we originally thought.
Side note: It’s been rumored that Black Panther will make a cameo appearance.
Doctor Strange – November 4, 2016
The Used Game ParadigmOver the course of this past generation I've been watching the video game market react to the way it's been forced to deal with increasing changes. I've come out against used game sales and even written a journal about boycotting GameStop because (like most people at the time) I believed they were the root cause of all the problems the video game industry has. But that's something I don't believe now as intently as i did then. From where I sit, piracy and used games sales are a problem, but not in the way game companies want us to believe that they are.The Used Game Paradigm2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Used games are a good thing for consumers. We get to try games out, and if we don't like what we see or finish it early, we trade it in and try another title instead. It's a very good system for us since video game rentals are much harder to come by. Most video rental stores in America have gone extinct and outside specific Red Box Kiosks there aren't a lot of places for consumers to rent video games. The exception, of course, being thr
So What is it that Gamers Want?Over the past several weeks gamers have been whining incessantly about” journalistic integrity” over the supposed “scandalous” incident involving Zoe Quinn which may or may not have actually happened at all.So What is it that Gamers Want?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Zoe Quinn was accused of sleeping with journalists to get positive reviews for her game... which wasn’t true. While it’s entirely possible that she did sleep with games reviewers while cheating on her current boyfriend, there’s no real evidence that that translated into positive attention for her game. And frankly, that’s not really any of our business is it? A person’s personal sex life isn’t anything WE, gamers, should be concerned with.
But weather or not you believe the rumors, the thing that gamers seem to want NOW is to “rid games journalism of corruption,” which begs the question... what corruption? I understand that there’s this idea that if a game journalist donates money to a game on, say, Patre
Artist ConfessionsI was talking with a friend recently and it made me think about things. Maybe this isn't the place for a post like this but DA is really the only online site I use so I have no other output.Artist Confessions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will start off by saying that DA is a really great site. I've had so many wonderful experiences on this site and met many people that I'm so thankful for knowing. The support I've received has been amazing, and when I joined, I never thought in a million years that I'd have the amount of followers I do or that people would like my art to the extent they do. It's remarkable and gives me a wonderful feeling.
Unfortunately, I've also noticed some alarming trends in recent years. I'm not sure if it's just me but I feel like the internet is becoming a place of increased 'meanness'. It's not necessarily that people are becoming meaner; it's more that the internet makes it easy for people to anonymously post hurtful things towards artists/people they dislike for whatever reason (it removes our inhibitio
